Washington, June 27 — US President Barack Obama announced Wednesday he was nominating General Marty Dempsey for another term as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the nation's top military chief.

Oama said in a statement he would also nominate Admiral Sandy Winnefeld for another term as the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Xinhua reported.

The president praised the two as "superb officers who have led our military and their families with great distinction, deep conviction, and absolute integrity over the past two years," and have "earned my trust and that of the American people."

Obama said he is confident "that our nation is safer and more secure today because of their visionary, dedicated, and tireless leadership," and urged the Senate to re-confirm their nomination as swiftly as possible.

Obama and Joel Osteen

Sep 2 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: WND

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” – Proverbs 29:18 I can’t blame Barack Obama for the sad state of America. Yes, he lied about what Obamacare was all about. Yes, he deceived about who he was and being constitutionally eligible for the office. Yes, he has broken both the spirit and the letter of the law while acting – and I do mean acting – as president of the United States. Nevertheless, Obama is largely ...

The Democratic Party has got to know that Hillary Clinton’s track record in politics has been less than stellar.

We all remember how Bill practically made her the co-president and handed her the job of overhauling the health-care system – and we remember what a debacle that was. She was hounded by scandals and whispers of dirty deals she and Bi ...

But “majority-black Ferguson has a virtually all-white power structure: a white mayor; a school board with six white members and one Hispanic, which recently suspended a young black superintendent who then resigned; a City Council with ...

Fighting to Give You A Raise

Sep 2 2014 5:15pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

This past Labor Day, President Barack Obama once again reminded us why Congress must increase the federal minimum wage. In America, the land of opportunity, no one who works 40 hours per week should be struggling to raise a family. Yet that is exactly what is happening. People in cities from Detroit to Chicago are demanding the long overdue pay raise that they deserve. At least 23 states have heard this call to ...
