Apparently, the White House is bowing to pressure from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (yes, such a position actually exists) and is going to look for alternate ways to bring Syrian refugees into the country.

Fox News reports:

Obama signed an Executive Order (EO) on Friday that affects American businesses and the free market (what’s left of it, anyway).

Obama has ordered the FCC to open up set-top cable boxes to competition, and he more broadly ordered executive agencies to search for ways that they can ensure competition among free...

He nearly topped this historic effort with this week’s Nuclear Policy Summit commemorative photograph.

Last year there was some speculation that Obama was smoking again–after having quit, he says, because his wife scared him into it.   Whether he is still smoking or not, a Russian advertiser has decided to use the American president’s smoking habit in his or her latest anti-smoking ad campaign.

In his last year in office, Obama promised to be more bold (reckless?) in pushing his agenda, and one thing that has long irritated him about our great country is our consumption of oil.

During his State of the Union address, Obama asserted that anyone portraying the American economy as bad was “peddling fiction“.

Perhaps he can explain why our stock market was outperforming expectations . . . in terms of how much it dropped?
