Yo...Charlie...watch the March 24th episode of Glenn Beck's show - you'll understand EVERYTHING. Then, you're only concern will be...Why didn't anyone TELL us, so we could sell our souls to George Soros and join his "Open Society?"

By criticizing Obama, Charlie Rangel has outed himself as a racist. Who woulda thunk it?

Would someone who watched Robert Gates’ testimony before Congress on our involvement in Libya please tell me how he can possibly be absolved from lying in Congress’ faces and ours.

Did he not say we were NOT flying combat missions over Libya at that time?

Didn’t there used to be grave penalties and prison time for lying to Congress?
