USA Today published a study that criticized President Obama for issuing the fewest pardons of any two-term president since Washington. The recidivist rate naturally concerns the president. Even the Thanksgiving turkey that Obama pardoned is back on the streets committing crimes.

President Obama asked House and Senate leaders for leeway in negotiating with Iran. Our two countries will always clash culturally. Iran's president Rouhani recently announced that the Islamic Republic of Iran has developed the capacity to make plutonium and he added that girls didn't help at all.

U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said that using marijuana can be beneficial to your health and called for tolerance. Under a proposed L.A. City Council measure, police would no longer arrest people who smoke pot in public in Los Angeles. Experts called it a bold move that will change nothing.

President Obama met with reporters in the White House after video of the ISIS execution of the Jordanian pilot aired but Obama refused to call the killers radical Islamists. In an odd choice of words, the president did call ISIS the network of death. Apparently, he never heard of Blue Cross of California.

King Abdullah donned his pilot's uniform Thursday as he ordered Jordan's pilots to bomb ISIS in revenge for ISIS atrocities. For his part President Obama spoke to a prayer breakfast and listed all the atrocities the Anglo-Saxons ever committed in Christ's name. It was everyone to their battle stations.
