Back in 2008, Obama suggested that it would be necessary to bankrupt the coal industry in his efforts to establish “green” energy alternatives—he wanted to “take coal off the table as an ideological matter.”

Here’s the clip:

The Daily Caller has a partial transcript of the above interview:

CNN reported last night that President Obama has given his blessing to a 2016 presidential run for Vice President Joe Biden.

This news isn’t completely unexpected but as Legal Insurrection readers know, it will change the landscape of the Democratic Party’s 2016 primary, especially if Elizabeth Warren is involved.

Obama’s first trip to Kenya since becoming president has highlighted the disappointment that many Africans feel in his presidency.  While President Bush earns high praise and achieved a great deal in Africa, particularly with regard to his efforts fighting AIDS, Obama . . . not so much.

One one hand, it is comforting to know President Obama can target the enemy and use American resources to counter it.

On the other hand, it is very disturbing when that enemy is . . . climate change.

As a direct result of Obama’s amateurish, quasi-idealistic, and completely ideological failings in Iraq, we will almost certainly end up sending ground troops back in order to undo the damage wrought by the failed Obama doctrine.

Obama knows this, of course, and his plan is to run out the clock rather than...

When he withdrew troops from Iraq, Obama himself proclaimed, “we are leaving behind a sovereign, stable, and self-reliant Iraq.”  That was in 2011.  Flash forward to now, and Iraq is none of those things; indeed, Iraq is now an ISIS strong-hold, part of their declared caliphate.

Throughout Obama’s presidency, we’ve heard him...

Obama has famously (infamously?) long been enamored of the idea of fundamentally transforming America, and one of the foundational aspects of American culture that he has in his sights is the Second Amendment and Americans’ firmly held belief in their right to keep and bear arms.
