DETROIT — John James emerges with confidence from a former Detroit elementary school that has been transformed into a charter high school in the northwest side of the city. It is a stride any parent would hope to see in a son or daughter graduating from this school, founded by Jalen Rose, a former NBA player and member of the University of Michigan's legendary "Fab 5" squad.
Outside the leafy campus of Jalen Rose Leadership Academy High School, parents wait for their children to emerge as a handful of students play on the school's clay basketball court. James, a member of the school's board, has just finished a board meeting, to discuss his decision to run for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate.
"We're not going to play politics."

Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin held a high-end fundraiser in 2016 for then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at his home with ticket prices reportedly costing over $30,000.
Tomlin hosted the event with his wife on June 14 with supporters required to pay $33,400 to meet Clinton — those who couldn’t afford to pay that amount to meet a woman claiming to represent the middle class were given the option of simply paying
Congress is right to act on the UN once Trump takes office. This is an organization that gives voice to the worst values the world over. The same week as terrorists strike Europe again, Coptic Christians are bombed in their churches, a once thriving city of Aleppo is completely destroyed, the UN spends its time condemning Israel, the only democracy that protects freedom of religion. Imagine if the UN got their way, Jerusalem would be stripped of all Christian and Jewish history and the Holy Land would be run by a terrorist state. Thanks President Obama and the UN. -Nathaniel Jones
Ambassador Samantha Power, who represents the United States at the UN Security Council, sat mum on Friday when the chair called for votes against an anti-Israel resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal. But she raised her hand high when the chair called for abstentions.
She, and her boss, President Barack Obama, could have voted no, in keeping with precedent, and in deference to the incoming administration of President-elect Donald J. Trump. Instead, they let the resolution pass.
In anticipation of Obama’s suspected — now confirmed — abstention, members of Congress threatened to de-fund the UN. The U.S. accounts for some 22% of the UN’s budget, supporting a large, comfortable bureaucracy and its various programs.
This is a shameful decision by Obama admin and will make it impossible for peace. Palestinians will never stop terrorism and incitement when they can have the UN as cover. Obama and Kerry are changing decades of US policy to protect Israel against blatantly biased resolutions in the UN. Now on their way out knowing they have failed to achieve any foreign policy goals Obama gives his leftist, anti-Israel friends a going away gift. Note that many Democrats in the Senate are speaking out against Obama ofr this and the people celebrating are Muslim groups like CAIR and far left progressives like MoveOn. Go figure. Shameful for Obama in his final weeks in office. -Nathaniel Jones
TEL AVIV – In a dramatic departure from the longstanding U.S. policy of vetoing anti-Israel resolutions, the Obama administration on Friday abstained from voting on a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a halt to Israeli construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, thereby allowing the measure to pass.
Fourteen member states voted in favor of the resolution; none voted against, and the U.S. abstained.
US Ambassador Samantha Power justified the U.S. decision to abstain by claiming “the settlements have no legality.”
The office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent Breitbart Jerusalem the following response to the passage of the resolution:...
This is truly absurd. This man has overseen the UN for years yet doesn't raise a single objection to the blatant anti-Israel bias, now weeks before he leaves he admits it and even says the UN hurts chances for peace. This man is a failure. Listen to this stat: the UN passed 223 resolutions condemning Israel while only eight resolutions condemning the Syrian regime as it has massacred its citizens over the past six years. This is absurd. -Nathaniel Jones

This brave soldier who lost both his legs while protecting soldiers from IEDs is now running for Congress. He is not afraid to speak the truth about the left and their ideology that hurts veterans and soldiers alike. We need more leaders in Congress like Brian Mast who will fight for soldiers like himself and hold the VA accountable. This is a very important race in 2016. We will do all we can to elect Brian Mast in Florida's 18th District.

Congressional candidate and veteran Brian Mast says ideology is to blame
By Edmund Kozak
Liberal ideology leads Democrats to ignore the plight of servicemen, says rising GOP star and congressional candidate Brian Mast.
“‘The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it,’” said Mast in an exclusive interview with LifeZette, quoting JFK.
It is for this very reason that “the far left feels they can take advantage of the American service member, because they know we’re always going to step up to fight,” he said. “They don’t value that because they don’t have to ask twice for us to do it.”
Our organization spent money and energy against the Iran nuclear deal that released billions of dollars to the leading state sponsor of terrorism, Iran. President Obama and Secretary Kerry agreed some of that money would be spent on terror. They shrugged their shoulders. Iran is now putting that money to work to support the murder of Jews and terror against Israel. I'm sure President Obama and Kerry are still shrugging their shoulders.

Iran Will pay $30,000 for every home of a terrorist demolished by Israel
JERUSALEM—Iran on Wednesday stoked the current round of violence on the West Bank and Jerusalem by promising to pay the family of every Palestinian “martyr” $7,000 and to pay $30,000 for every home of a terrorist demolished by Israel.
This opinion article sums up the worry many people feel about allowing refugees into America that even our intelligence agencies know nothing about. This is from the article below: "at least 14 people who came to America as refugees from Syria, Iraq and other terrorist havens have been arrested on terrorism charges over the past two years. It’s hardly a complete list."

Despite the FBI busting a slate of Syrian refugees with links to ISIS — including one last month living in California — the White House is quietly pushing for an increase in the number of refugees from the ISIS hotspot.
It’s as if San Bernardino and Paris never happened.
It is outrageous the public and veterans still don't know the scope of the wait list scandal that rocked the VA almost two years ago. The VA needs to be reformed and it starts by replacing the administrators that were in charge and knowingly covered up wrongdoing. The Obama Administration needs to hold those accountable and Congress and the public deserve full transparency.

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs inspector general has not released reports on investigations precipitated by the agency’s fake wait list scandal that made headlines nearly two years ago.
USA Today reported that the agency’s watchdog has not publicly released reports on the findings of investigations into 73 VA hospital across the country. While the inspector general found 51 instances of scheduling problems
This news is not surprising given the White House has appeased Iran at every turn. Congress passed these measures on a bipartisan basis only to see Obama ignore the wishes of the people and give Iran yet another free pass.

Pro-Iran groups, CAIR pressured White House to drop new measures
The Obama administration has announced that it will not enforce new counter-terrorism measures passed by an overwhelming bipartisan majority in Congress because they could harm Iranian business interests, according to new instructions issued by the Department of Homeland Security.
The administration’s decision to waive portions of a new counter-terrorism law aimed at preventing terrorism-linked individuals from traveling to the United States comes on the heels of a lobbying effort by pro-Iran organizations and other Arab advocacy groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
