  • On abortion, on homosexuality and on abuse, the mainstream media has it in for the Catholic Church

    People wonder why conservatives moan endlessly about what they label “the mainstream media”. One reason is that it often displays a subconscious prejudice against religion. Catholics, for example, are sometimes presented as misogynistic cultists with the blood of millions on their hands. To anyone who occasionally attends Mass, this can come off as rather insulting. Sorry, but we’re sensitive that way.Take the tragic case of Savita Halappanavar, who died earlier this year in a hospital in Galway, Ireland. Here’s how The Guardian reported the story:Ireland's near-total ban on abortion has come under renewed scrutiny amid an outcry over the death...
  • Anna Wintour: Republicans cool to idea of Vogue editor as UK ambassador

    Republicans have attacked President Barack Obama’s consideration of Anna Wintour as America's next ambassador to Britain, with some claiming that the party’s Senators would move to block her appointment. Obama is believed to have placed Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, on a shortlist of candidates to replace Louis Susman, who this week confirmed he was stepping down as US envoy to the Court of St. James. Conservative critics described the potential appointment of Wintour, whose only political experience is raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for Obama’s re-election campaign, as “ludicrous” and “a non-starter”. …

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT Rand Paul on the Kudlow Report, CNBC, last night. "What do you think of Boehner's idea, cap deductions, get $800 billion in revenues. Make any sense to you?" PAUL: Why don't we let the Democrats pass whatever they want. If they are the party of higher taxes, all the Republicans in the House vote present and let the Democrats raise taxes as high as they want to raise 'em. Let Democrats in the Senate raise taxes. Let the president sign it, and then they can own a tax increase, and when the economy stalls, when the economy sputters,...

    The family of a nurse who has died in a suspected suicide just two days after transferring a hoax call about the Duchess of Cambridge have told of their sadness at her death. Mother-of-two Jacintha Saldanha, who was working on the switchboard at the King Edward VII Hospital when 2DayFM obtained intimate details about Kate, was found dead this morning.

    NBC sportscaster Bob Costas brought the sports world some unexpected controversy this weekend: As every NFL fan and a lot of others now know, Costas used the lofty perch of NBC’s Sunday Night Football halftime show to deliver an emotion-fueled diatribe against guns and by implication, gun owners. His rant came a day after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins dead and then committed suicide, leaving their child an orphan.Costas is paid to analyze and report. He should deal in facts and reason, but but he was clearly doing something else when he quoted from Fox...

    Hillary Clinton has called for an end to “unacceptable” violence in Northern Ireland as she visited the region amid a revival of sectarian tensions. The US Secretary of State said she was “distressed” to hear about a death threat to Naomi Long, the East Belfast MP, and the discovery of two unexploded bombs. … Mrs. Clinton landed in Belfast as part of four-day European trip, just hours after police seized an unexploded bomb from suspected Republican dissidents in Londonderry. A second device was found in a postbox. …

    WASHINGTON, D.C., December 6, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) — In a strongly worded judgment a federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit from the Archdiocese of New York against the Obama administration’s HHS mandate may proceed. The Obama administration had argued that the archdiocese’s lawsuit was premature, since the administration may still make adjustments to the mandate that would stop it from having any effect on the archdiocese. After announcing the mandate in February, the Obama administration had announced a “safe harbor” that would prevent the mandate from applying to certain religious employers until August 2013. However, Judge Brian Cogan slapped...

    We request President Obama rescind his invitation to the Gangnam Style rapper PSY to perform for him at the Christmas in Washington celebration this month because of the rapper's vicious anti-American song lyrics. In 2004, PSY reportedly performed a song entitled, Dear America, that contained the following lyrics (profanity edited): "Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers Kill them all slowly and painfully " As commander-in-chief, how can Pres. Obama honor someone who calls for killing our troops and their families?

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT Now, Obama. Let's go to top of the audio sound bites. Remember yesterday, a long dissertation in the first hour about what really is going on with the fiscal cliff, and that the real target here is the Republicans, particularly the Republicans in the House, but the Republican Party writ large, Obama is simply trying to decimate it. He is desperate to get Boehner to sign off on raising taxes on the rich. That's ball game for Obama. If he can get that, he gets a confession. What Obama wants is a confession, an admission from the Republicans...

    David Cameron has been warned that plans to let same-sex couples marry in churches will be “massacred” in the House of Lords and alienate grassroots Conservatives. Tory MPs and Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, have reacted with dismay after the Prime Minister said places of worship will be allowed to conduct same-sex weddings. The decision represents a major U-turn on the position set out in a formal Government consultation earlier this year which proposed a blanket ban. …

From complete newbies that are looking to start that first potted plant, to gardeners with some acreage, to Master Gardener level and beyond, we would love to hear from you. This thread is non-political, although you will find that most here are conservative folks. No matter what, you won’t be flamed and the only dumb question is the one that isn’t asked.

And do you remember we were told that the economy added 171,000 jobs in October, the unemployment rate was going below 8%? And do you also remember that I said at that time, "I don't believe this." And do you remember also that Jack Welch came out and said he didn't believe it and thought they were fudging the numbers and they lit into Jack Welch.

    American Enterprise Institute ^ | December 07, 2012 | Jonah Goldberg | National Review Online
    Oliver Stone’s boomer-nostalgic radicalism is stale and hackneyed. When, at long last, will people understand that the left is boring? The question came to mind as I was dipping in and out of Oliver Stone’s miasmic 700-plus-page tome. I’ll never read the whole thing, and not because it’s a left-wing screed full of slimy distortions about the evils of the United States (though that doesn’t help). It’s that it’s boring. Stone and co-author Peter Kuznick call their book “The Untold History of the United States,” except, again, it isn’t. This story has been told countless times before. As the Daily...

    Doris “Dorie” Miller was a Mess Attendant working on the USS West Virginia. Like most mornings, he rose before dawn for a dreary day of hauling trash, scrubbing dishes and prepping food for the battleship’s cook. While collecting the crew’s laundry, the General Quarters alarm sounded. Ships have drills all the time — even on Sunday mornings — but a sailor still must answer the call. However this time he couldn’t get to his designated battle station. The torpedo-twisted metal proved this alarm was for real. With nowhere else to report, Dorie ran to the deck to see what was...
