Obama's Amnesty Gamble
Washington is abuzz today with reports that President Obama will formally announce his executive amnesty tomorrow and promote it at an event Friday in Las Vegas. How appropriate since he is playing roulette with the rule of law.
As we wait for this firestorm to erupt, let me knock down the latest attempt by Obama to hijack Ronald Reagan's legacy.

Palestinians Celebrate Synagogue Slaughter
In my special alert this morning I mentioned that Palestinians would celebrate today's barbaric attack on a Jerusalem synagogue. As difficult as it may be to imagine anyone rejoicing at such carnage, The Weekly Standard has posted a video of Palestinians doing just that. Click here and watch the second video.

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) issued another grotesque beheading video over the weekend. Peter Kassig, a former Army Ranger, became the fifth Westerner beheaded by ISIL.
|Terrorist Merger, Obama vs. Obama, Conservative Cruise To Alaska||
Anti-trust regulators at the Justice Department are monitoring a potential merger involving Halliburton. They want to make sure Halliburton doesn't get a monopoly on the drilling market. But the real threat to America is not a merger of oil drilling giants. The real threat is a merger of jihadists, which just happened.
The Associated Press reports that key figures in ISIS and Al Qaeda recently met in northern Syria and agreed to join forces in their fight against the Assad regime and moderate rebel factions. This is bad news.
|Next 26 Months, Amnesty Divide, GOP Vows To Fight||
The Next 26 Months
Barack Obama is still president for the next 26 months. Starting in January, he'll have to contend with a Republican House and Senate on matters of domestic policy and spending. But when it comes to foreign policy, the Constitution grants the president tremendous authority.
Expect America's standing in the world to continue to decline as our enemies exploit Obama's remaining time in office. It is already happening.
|Obama's Priorities, Emissions And Growth, Liberal Arrogance||
It was announced today to much fanfare that President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping have reached an agreement to dramatically reduce carbon emissions. Really? Carbon emissions?
That speaks volumes about Obama's priorities. By the way, while Obama's worried about global warming, another polar vortex is hitting the country, bringing record cold temperatures and snow to several states.

The Compromise Trap
In the days since last week's historically disastrous election for President Obama and his liberal allies, the chattering class of TV talking heads, professional analysts and pollsters (the same experts who told us there would not be a wave election) has been telling conservatives what the election meant and what they are required to do. Establishment Republicans ought to reject the media's false narrative.

Court Gets Marriage Right
A federal appeals court has finally gotten it right on marriage!
Yesterday the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that states have the right to preserve the meaning of normal marriage and that thousands of years of tradition and basic biology should not be tossed aside lightly.
|Obama Not Listening, Doubles Down On Amnesty, Jihad In Jerusalem||
Obama: "I Hear You". . . Not!
The Washington Post continued its post-election coverage with a front page story today headlined, "Obama To Voters: I Hear You." That is what Obama said, but no one believes it -- not even the Post'sliberal columnists.
I don't think Obama believes it ether. During his press conference yesterday, Obama made a bizarre statement that hasn't gotten the attention I think it deserves.
