The International Olympic Committee has no plans to revoke the gold medal of Bruce Jenner despite calls from an online petition to do so following Jenner's gender identity change.
Earlier this week, an individual living in Massachusetts posted a petition on the White House's "We the People" site calling for the revocation of Jenner's 1976 gold medal.
"As we all know, Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) is an Olympic gold medalist," states the petition, which must get 100,000 signatures by July 1 to be guaranteed an official reply from the Obama administration. more >>
I've always liked Bruce Jenner. When I was a kid he was an Olympic hero. I must admit I questioned his judgment for marrying into the Kardashians.
But I see him as someone who needs wise counsel, loving help, prayer, and while it may sound cliché, Jesus. I'm betting that what he's getting is advice from people with $$ signs in their eyes, who are successfully exploiting him for personal gain.
So here are some points you need to know about Courage, Sex Change and God: more >>
Former President George W. Bush is now enjoying a higher favorability rating than President Barack Obama, a new survey has revealed, and shows that Americans' opinion of Obama has continued to decline.
The CNN/ORC poll, released on Wednesday, noted that 52 percent of American adults who responded to the survey have a favorable impression of Bush, while 43 percent have an unfavorable view. The former president's public image has improved significantly since leaving office, seeing that back in 2009 only one-third of respondents said they have a positive opinion of him.
Obama, however, now has only 45 percent of America's approval, while 52 percent disapprove of the job he has been doing in office. The rise in the disapproval rating cross party lines. more >>
President Obama, you recently gave an interview to Israeli television claiming you are "the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office." That's so far from the truth even a GPS cannot find it.
First, there was George Washington. His address to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport in 1790 was the first time in history any national leader spoke to the Jews as fully equal fellow citizens. Then, there was Thomas Jefferson, who thought the Great Seal of the United States should have been the Children of Israel and their Exodus from Egyptian bondage. President Lincoln was so beloved by American Jews that they called him "Rabbi Abraham."
Then there was FDR. President Roosevelt met the first King of Saudi Arabia. He didn't bow to him, Sir, as you did to that desert despot's son. But President Franklin D. Roosevelt insisted on holding Divine Services on board his warship, the USS Quincy, before his Sunday meeting with the Saudi king. Roosevelt got nowhere pleading with King Adbul Azziz for a homeland for the Jews. But at least he maintained his dignity and our national honor. more >>
The longtime friend and business manager of 2016 presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has responded to recent criticisms by black journalists, who have attacked Carson's conservative viewpoints as hurting his reputation, by saying that Carson refuses to be shackled by political correctness.
Armstrong Williams, who is a radio talk show host and a Carson confidant, spoke with Newsmax TV's J.D. Hayworth earlier this week and was asked why Carson is getting such a "bad reception" from African-Americans in the media.
Hayworth brought up talk show host and author Tavis Smiley, who said on Fox News in May that the retired world-renowned neurosurgeon is like a "black bull in a Republican China shop" and that he'd "call for an intervention to stop him from doing what he's doing to himself and his reputation." more >>
A Christian family in the ancient city of Nineveh is reportedly defending the 2,700 year-old tomb of the Jewish prophet Nahum, as the armies of terror group ISIS advance in the region and are now only 10 miles outside.
"When the last Jewish people in Al Qosh left, they asked my grandfather to watch over the tomb, to keep it safe. I don't know much more than that," said Asir Salaam Shajaa, an Assyrian Christian.
"Nahum is not our prophet, but he is a prophet, so we must respect that. He's a prophet, it is simple." more >>
