Pastor John Hagee, the founder of Christians United for Israel, has clarified that he did not mean to call President Barack Obama one of the "most anti-semitic presidents" in history, but stands by his assertion that Obama is anti-Israel.
"The prepared text of my remarks before the Zionist Organization of America called President Obama one of the most 'anti-Israel' presidents in U.S. history," Hagee, who is also the senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, said in a statement, referring to his speech on Nov. 23 at the Zionist Organization of America annual dinner in New York.
"During my speech, I inadvertently called him one of the most 'anti-Semitic' presidents in history," he added. more >>
Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu has lost to Republican challenger Bill Cassidy in a runoff election that has given more strength to the Republican Party in the Senate.
Cassidy's win means Republicans will now have a nine-seat majority in the Senate next year with 54 seats, and Democrats will control 46 seats.
In results long predicted by most analysts and news outlets, Cassidy, who presently serves as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, soundly beat Landrieu with about 58 percent of the vote versus Landrieu's 42 percent with over 75 percent of precincts reporting Saturday, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State's unofficial election results web page. more >>
With Obamacare obviously failing to provide promised affordable health care and falling apart in the face of legal challenges and states' refusal to participate, it's becoming increasingly clear that President Obama has decided to make ending "climate change" his legacy.
"If you believe, like I do, that something has to be done on this, then you're going to have to speak out," Obama told students and faculty at the University of California at Irvine last June. "You've got to educate your classmates, and colleagues, and family members and fellow citizens, and tell them what's at stake."
Two concerns were raised this week in the battle to allow religious groups to maintain their religious identity when partnering with government to provide social services.
The Department of Labor released the final regulations for President Barack Obama's nondiscrimination executive order for federal contractors, and a bill may soon be passed during the U.S. Senate's lame duck session that does not contain religious exemptions for faith-based groups that receive government grants to aid homeless and runaway youth.

Now that President Barack Obama announced his intentions to violate the Constitution and grant amnesty to 5 million illegal aliens through executive amnesty, Congress is in a rush to respond. Obama's actions are a threat to the America's democracy, and it is up to the American people to demand enforcement of America's immigration laws.
After returning from recess on Monday, conservative Republicans in the U.S. House circulated draft legislation which would stop Obama's plan dead in it's tracks. The language, which was inserted into an upcoming spending bill, uses Congress' power of the purse and expressly prohibits the Department of Homeland Security from using any funds or fees may by "any agency to implement, administer, enforce or carry out any of the policy changes" announced by the Obama White House. The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) recently confirmed, in a letter to Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) that Congress has the full authority block Obama's shameful amnesty actions.
And because of Tea Party efforts, conservative leaders in the House are planning more action immediately. Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is crafting legislation to bolster law enforcement along America's porous border. And Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is already scheduling hearings immediately to expose Obama's illegal overreach on deportation policy. more >>
