I recently noted that President Obama’s climate change edict for our national security strategists shows that he does not take warfare against American opponents seriously.

However, the President takes citizen opposition very seriously. For example, he is unleashing one of his most potent tools against Americans opting out of purchasing Obamacare.

A poll released this morning suggests the race has tightened in Pennsylvania.

The Morning Call reports on its Pennsylvania poll:

A new Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll shows a narrow gap between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump amid rising support for Trump within his own party.

I recently noted that President Obama’s recent order is forcing our military to focus on climate change in its strategic planning.

This is a latest in a long-string of policies that are clearly full of holes, as shown by the fact that the U.S. Navy’s much-heralded, futuristic stealth destroyer sprung a leak...

U.S. officials are now reporting that ISIS fighters have attacked U.S. and Iraqi forces with a “crude” chemical weapon that may have been a mustard agent.

The U.S base outside Qayyarah, 25 miles south of Mosul, was struck by a rocket and traces of a “mustard agent” were...

I noted that there was a #NFLBoycott movement arising, in the wake of social justice protesting during America’s national anthem at the start of a football game.

This may be a contributing factor to the sharp decline in Monday Night Football ratings:

Two weeks ago, I noted that the California legislature approved a bill targeting cow flatulence and manure, which lawmakers blame for releasing greenhouse gases.

In a move that surprises nobody, eco-activist Governor Jerry Brown has just signed it into law.

Late last year, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi was snubbed by President Obama during his visit to New York City for the United Nations General Assembly’s 70th meeting.

Now, al-Sisi is gearing up to meet the two top challengers in the race to be the next Oval Office occupant.

When President Obama said he would fundamentally transform America, who could have guessed it meant that exotic diseases and once-vanquished illnesses would break out across the county?

The Zika virus, which we have been following closely, is increasing its footprint within our country. Florida Governor Rick Scott just announced that the Zika...

Therefore, I have been mostly oblivious to the latest social justice drama playing out across the country involving San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand during the national anthem.
