On Friday, President Obama spoke at Congregation Adas Israel just before the Sabbath on the weekend of Shavuot, one of the key festivals of Judaism celebrating the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people. There, Obama proceeded to lecture Jews about “Jewish values,” which apparently include surrendering to Palestinian terrorism, forsaking the land of their heritage, and allowing Iran to pursue nuclear weapons.
This week, various appeals courts across the country ruled on whether religious institutions should be exempted from the Obamacare contraception mandate. The court decisions make it all but inevitable that the Supreme Court will be forced in the next few months to consider whether religious institutions must cover contraception in violation of their religious freedom.
We are just over a month into the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, and she has already reached Peak Hillary: corruption, obfuscation, and stonewalling.
On Game of Thrones, the rape of a fictional character prompted real American Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) to say that she had had enough of this horrific treatment of women on HBO.
Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State when President Obama pulled American troops out of Iraq, leaving the country a security vacuum quickly exploited by ISIS in the west and Iran in the east.
After admitting that he gave some $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, George Stephanopoulos, the “objective” news anchor from ABC News, apologized on-air for failing to disclose the donations on Friday, even as he interviewed author Peter Schweizer about Clinton Foundation fundraising improprieties.
Thus far in her campaign, she has answered a grand total of 13 questions. These ranged from the blasé (“How do you win this time?”) to the mockable (“How are you liking Iowa?”), from the stupid (“Is it good to be back out here again?”) to the even more stupid (“What do you think the importance of the Iowa caucus will be in the upcoming election?”).
On Tuesday, Pew Research released a new study finding a radical increase in the number of religiously unaffiliated Americans. That increase correlated strongly with the decrease in the number of Catholics, mainline Protestants, and evangelical Protestants over the past seven years.

Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash has the Hillary Clinton campaign so riled up that they have now posted an entire webpage attempting to debunk claims in the book via obfuscation and misdirection.
New York Times Victim-Blames Pamela Geller: ‘Achieved Her Provocative Goal’ by Causing Terrorist Attack
On Thursday, The New York Times editorial board announced that Pamela Geller, the activist behind the Mohammed-drawing contest in Texas, brought a terrorist attack upon herself by hosting the event.
On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo broke out a heapin’ helpin’ of legal know-how, explaining to ignoramuses on Twitter that Pamela Geller’s event encouraging submissions of drawings of Mohammed amounted to “hate speech” apparently uncovered by the Constitution:
Riots work. The Baltimore riots achieved a number of goals for the political left.
These same media members decrying the horrors of Muhammad cartoons–completely ignoring that the point of drawing Muhammad cartoons is to mock those who kill those who draw Muhammad cartoons–were perfectly happy to use the power of government to target every business owner who refuses to service a same-sex wedding.
If you love the team that put together the Clinton Foundation and all of its various corrupt dealings with foreign nations, you’ll love the Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign.
On Friday, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby released her list of charges against all six officers involved in the arrest and death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died seven days after his arrest after his spine was 80 percent severed while in custody.
The media make money off race riots. They gin them up; they promote them; then they react to them. Media reactions to the riots in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray have ranged from the egregious to the ridiculous.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, more commonly known as the same-sex marriage case. The Supreme Court will be deciding whether the 14th Amendment, ratified in 1868 at a time when every single state in America criminalized sodomy, mandates same-sex marriage in every single state in America.
As rioters rushed through the streets of Baltimore, torching police vehicles, looting local stores, and attacking police officers and reporters alike, some intrepid leftists justified the activity.
On Tuesday, as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on whether the Constitution of the United States mandates that states accept legally sponsored same-sex marriage, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton changed her avatar on Twitter from her normal logo to a rainbow logo.

Hillary Clinton and her team seem to expect that the media world will resonate to them the same way they did in the 1990s. Matt Drudge changed the coverage of the Clintons by destroying the cozy relationship between the mainstream media, who wanted to kill the Lewinsky story, and the reader; now media are punished for failures to report. Should the media downplay this scandal, the American people will chalk it up to media bias, rather than the notion that there is no scandal to investigate.
Friday marked the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, and President Obama, despite his prior promises to recognize the Armenian Genocide, failed to do so for the seventh straight year.
