“The President’s decision to reward the Castro regime and begin the path toward the normalization of relations with Cuba is inexplicable. Cuba’s record is clear. Just as when President Eisenhower severed diplomatic relations with Cuba, the Castro family still controls the country, the economy and all levers of power. This administration’s attempts to loosen restrictions on travel in recent years have only served to benefit the regime. While business interests seeking to line their pockets, aided by the editorial page of The New York Times, have begun a significant campaign to paper over the facts about the regime in Havana, the reality is clear. Cuba, like Syria, Iran, and Sudan, remains a state sponsor of terrorism.

Barack Hussein Obama announced yesterday that he was unilaterally changing American policy toward Cuba and opening up an Embassy in the Communist dictatorship. Cuba is a state-sponsor of terrorism, an ally of North Korea and Iran. This move is not surprising given the fact that Obama’s mentor as a teen was a hard-core Communist named Frank Marshall Davis.
A federal judge in Pennsylvania has just slapped down part of Obama’s illegal alien amnesty edict. District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled that Obama’s executive order on amnesty for 5 million illegals is invalid and is legislating from the White House.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) who is retiring this year after 8 years in the House of Representatives confronted Obama over his Iran policy at the White House Christmas Party recently. Bachmann told him: “Mr. President, you need to bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities, because if you don’t, Iran will have a nuclear weapon on your watch and the course of world history will change.”
“While many may be skeptical, and rightfully so given how broken Washington has become, Republicans are committed to returning government to the American people.
“We know who our bosses are, and that you are more than capable of understanding what Washington does or does not accomplish. We understand that it is not government that powers our nation, but rather the ingenuity, hard work and skills of the American people. Your issues are our concerns.
“Harry Reid’s last act as majority leader is to, once again, act as an enabler for President Obama, by blocking this vote on the president’s amnesty,” Cruz said on his Facebook page. “He is going to an embarrassing length to tie up the floor to obstruct debate and a vote on this issue because he knows amnesty is unpopular with the American people, and he doesn’t want the Democrats on the record as supporting it.”
A proposed mega-mosque in the pretty little town of Bridgewater, New Jersey, was rejected by the town council last year, “citing an ordinance that limited houses of worship to major roads.” Reasonable enough. Municipal officials argued that the purpose of the ordinance was to “preserve the residential character of its various neighborhoods.”
“It is unconscionable that the Committee and the White House would support releasing this report despite warnings from our allies, the U.S. State Department, and a new coordinated Intelligence Community document assessing the increased risk to the United States the release of this report poses. We are concerned that this release could endanger the lives of Americans overseas, jeopardize U.S. relations with foreign partners, potentially incite violence, create political problems for our allies, and be used as a recruitment tool for our enemies.
