Is Obama Ready to Confront Iran Over Yemen?
By Joseph Klein
The Obama administration, while showing willingness to cave in to just about every Iranian demand in the ongoing nuclear negotiations, appears to be flexing its muscles in the Yemen proxy fight between Saudi Arabia and Iran. The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is headed toward the waters off Yemen from the Persian Gulf, escorted by the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy. Its presence will add to the fleet of other American warships already there, including cruisers and destroyers, conducting maritime security operations in or around the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Aden, the Strait of Bab-el-Mandeb and the Southern Red Sea. If President Obama's track record of backing down in the face of Iranian demands in the nuclear talks is any indication, Iran does not have much to worry about. He will most likely back down as well from undertaking any consequential confrontation with Iran over Yemen. [more...]
Will Computer Programmers Elect the Next President?
It might seem far-fetched at first, but computer programmers and analysts known as data scientists might very well be responsible for electing the next President of the United States. How can that possibly be? Analytics from your "data footprint" will help bring the most important and tailored information about a candidate's views and policy positions to individual voters based on the voter's interests and views. For example, if a potential voter is interested in Second Amendment gun rights, analytics will tailor a message to the voter about a presidential candidate's gun rights position, not about the candidate's illegal immigration views. Analytics will also help determine how many new voters will need to be registered to win a particular state that might currently be an electoral toss-up. Analytics can also be used to identify potential new donors and micro-target the most appealing donor letter or online ad. The list goes on and on. [Go here for a complete analysis...]
Equal Pay Starts at Home
By Joe Messina
Equal pay starts at home, at least that's what Obama thinks. In a speech this week, the guy who claims he knows the Constitution - knows what the people want - hasn’t figured out that we didn't elect his wife. She wasn't on the ticket. Mrs. Obama has stated openly that being in the White House is like being in prison. She complains about her role, about her prison, about America, and now she wants to be paid for it? Really? She has more "aids" than any 20 prior first ladies combined! She wastes more taxpayer dollars on personal vacations and shopping sprees around the world than any 40 first ladies combined. [more...]
What the Proposed $20 Bill Makeover Might Mean
By Lowell Ponte
President Andrew Jackson's face would be removed from America's $20 bill and replaced with a woman's if legislation introduced in mid-April becomes law. This measure is by Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, the first woman in American history to serve as both a state governor and U.S. Senator. Her aim in re-facing our currency, Shaheen says, is "to point out the significant contributions women have made in U.S. history." Women have made enormous contributions on many sides of issues. So which women are to be put on our money – heroines of the right or of the left? And why is Andrew Jackson – the only President who ever reduced America's national debt to zero - targeted to be replaced by a woman? [more...]
The DOJ Forensic Nightmare
Justice Department officials have known for years that flawed forensic work might have led to the convictions of potentially innocent people, but prosecutors did not tell the defendants or their attorneys about these mistakes - even in many cases they knew were troubled. Instead of releasing the facts of these life altering mistakes, they only made them available to prosecutors in charge of affected cases. Federal authorities launched the investigation in 2012, but it was just over the weekend that they finally came clean publicly. As a result, hundreds of defendants nationwide remain in prison or on parole for crimes that might merit exoneration, a retrial or a retesting of evidence using DNA because FBI hair and fiber experts may have misidentified them as suspects.

Why is the Obama White House Removing Both Iran and Cuba from the Terror Watch List?
Why is the Obama Administration suddenly removing both Iran and Cuba from the official Terror Watch List? Why did the Administration also insist on removing language about Iran-sponsored terrorism from the Corker Bill? What is the White House doing about Putin selling missiles to Tehran? Does anyone truly buy the "new Hillary" who was on display in Iowa? And where does the Republican race stand now that Rubio is in and Christie is making noises in New Hampshire? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS live - on Fox News Channel this Sunday evening at 7:30pm ET. [more...]
Bernie Kerik: International Community MIA in Christian Genocide
The international community is missing in action when it comes to aiding Christians being persecuted around the globe by radical Islamists, former NYPD Commissioner and interim Minister of the Interior of Iraq Bernie Kerik said Monday. "Where's the international community? Where is the UN Security Council?" Kerik asked. [more...]
