Does Barack Obama Really Have Only One Month Left?

How Could Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate Contain the Phrase “Afro-American”? The Answer…

Believe it or not, in 2014 there are still people out there who are obsessed with the idea that Barack Obama is a secret foreigner who from the date of his birth has been swept up in a conspiracy to bring a non-American into the presidency so he could… well, generally disappoint? The conspiracy theories [...]

Barack Obama Uses Occasion Of Religiously-Inspired Killing To Deny That Violence Has Anything To Do With Religion

The motivation behind this part of Obama’s speech seems to be to discourage anti-Islamic hatred in the United States. That motivation is laudable, but the execution in sloppy, and thus undermines itself. There’s no need to assert historical and theological absurdities in order to urge a mood of toleration among members of different religions here in the United States. [...]

Obama Takes The USA Back To War In Iraq

President Obama announced last night that the United States of America will be taking part in the civil war in Iraq on the side of Shiite combatants. American involvement in the Iraqi civil war will begin with bombings of Sunni combatants.

Don’t Freak Out, It’s Just Torture, Says Obama

Finally, the White House has officially admitted that the United States federal government purposefully tortured prisoners as part of its War On Terror.

However, President Barack Obama doesn’t seem to think that [...]

Roll Call: Members Of Congress Who Voted To Let Barack Obama Start A New War In Iraq Whenever He Wants To

Obama Allows Blasting Along Atlantic Shores To Begin New Offshore Drilling

On Friday, the Obama Administration approved a plan to begin seismic blasting of the sea floor by oil companies seeking places to drill for petroleum. The blasting has been assessed as likely to kill and injure huge numbers of marine mammals. [...]

Will Barack Obama Go 400 Days Without Answering the Edward Snowden Petition?

On June 22 2013, the petition to pardon civil liberties whistleblower Edward Snowden surpassed a hundred thousand signatures, and has continued to gather signatures since, reaching 161,691 signatures today.

The 100,000 mark is crucial, because this isn’t just any old ordinary petition; it’s an official petition on the official “We The [...]

Support For Obama Drops Among Atheists

Throughout his presidency Barack Obama has enjoyed a higher rate of support among atheists than among Christians. A new poll from Gallup shows that, although this higher rate of support from atheists continues, support for Obama from atheists has decreased by 20% since the first year of Obama’s presidency.

Currently, the rate of support [...]

Breaking Promise, Barack Obama Ignores Edward Snowden White House Petition for 1 Year

On June 22 2013, the petition to pardon civil liberties whistleblower Edward Snowden surpassed a hundred thousand signatures, and has continued to gather signatures since, reaching 161,223 signatures today.

It’s that 100,000 mark that’s crucial, though, because this isn’t just any old ordinary petition; it’s an official petition on the official “We The People” petition [...]

Old War Powers Concerns Prove Justified With Obama And Iraq

Back in 2002, when Congress was debating giving George W. Bush expansive authorization to go to war in Iraq, one of the main concerns of skeptics was that the authorization could be used by the White House to engage in acts of war in the future that had only a tangential relation to the supposed [...]
