    Today I heard the news that Lindsey Graham and John McCain had a private meeting with Barack Obama on immigration policy. I think everyone with a pulse knows that Obama sees this issue as a democrat voter registration drive. I'm asking your help! (see below)

    The liberal media’s love affair with the Obamas appears to have reached a new climax following the first lady's appearance via satellite on the Academy Awards on February 24. Speaking on the O’Reilly Factor on February 25, the Washington Post’s Sally Quinn admitted that Michelle Obama’s Oscar appearance was, in Bill O’Reilly’s words, “Hollywood Left boosterism,” but gushed that it was a “brilliant idea.”

    Ganaway, who was drafted by the Jets but was cut after rookie minicamp, jokingly tweeted that he was bored with his offseason and was looking for something to fill all those empty hours until Rams OTAs and training camp commence.You want fries with that? While most NFL players use the offseason for rest, relaxation and maybe some traveling, St. Louis Rams running back Terrance Ganaway has decided to spend his time away from the gridiron in a most unusual way — earning $7.50 an hour making sandwiches at Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches in Waco, Texas. Ganaway jokingly tweeted that he...

  • Paul: Republican Party in Need of Facelift

    Kentucky's junior U.S. Senator says the Republican Party must broaden its appeal to voters by toning down some of its rhetoric on social issues. Rand Paul also thinks the GOP too often presents itself as a party "eager to go to war." Paul, a first-term Senator from Bowling Green and rumored 2016 Presidential candidate, spoke to more than 500 Cincinnati-area Republicans over the weekend. Paul said if Republicans hope to rebound from recent electoral disappointments, the GOP must find new ways to reach out to voters who disagree with the party on hot-topic issues such as abortion and gay marriage....
  • Jews of France flee to the U.K to escape anti Semitic attacks

    The number of new faces seen every Shabbat in the synagogues of England, rose sharply in 2012, as French Jews are escaping a surge of anti Jewish attacks, according to press reports in the United Kingdom. The number of French Jews crossing the Channel to find a safe haven in the U.K. has increased as figures released this week showed a 58 percent increase in anti-Semitic incidents in France for 2012. Last week, the Chief Rabbi of the U.K., Lord Sacks, warned: "the position of the Jews in Europe today is very difficult. There are threats now to ritual circumcision...

    WASHINGTON — The Senate confirmed Chuck Hagel as defense secretary on Tuesday after he survived a bruising struggle with Republicans, while President Obama’s nominee to be Treasury secretary moved closer to approval with bipartisan support. The votes suggested that the Republican blockade against the administration’s second-term nominees was beginning to ease.

    Frontpage ^ | 2/26/13 | Raymond Ibrahim
    A Christian pastor was recently slaughtered in the Muslim-majority African nation of Tanzania. While butchering Christian minorities is becoming increasingly common in that part of the Muslim world, the context for this latest slaughter is somewhat different than the usual forms of Christian persecution under Islam—such as allegations of “blaspheming” the name of Muslim prophet Muhammad. And yet, as in most forms of modern-day Muslim attacks on Christians, it too fits patterns and precedents. On February 11, Pastor Mathayo Kachili of the Tanzania Assemblies of God Church was beheaded by Muslims. According to the report, a spokesperson from the local...

    ABC News edited out First Lady Michelle Obama saying that a Chicago teenager was killed with an “automatic weapon.” Hadiya Pendleton was allegedly shot by a gang member on probation for a weapons charge with a handgun, not a rifle, which would be semi-automatic (unless it was a revolver.) Robin Roberts got the first interview with Mrs. Obama since the inauguration in January, which she used to ask about gun-control efforts by President Obama. A spokesman for ABC News, Heather Riley, emailed me that, “The full story was posted to our website in advance of the interview being broadcast. The...

    Waterbury Republican-American ^ | February 24, 2013 | Editorial
    The "national conversation" Americans demanded after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre is fast turning into a diatribe hinged — in some instances unhinged — on government "doing something," no matter how meaningless or expensive. Increasingly, proponents of stricter gun laws and "mental-health reform" claim their demands are rooted in "common sense," a strategy that attempts to pre-empt reasoned debate that surely would unmask them as counterproductive, unaffordable, unenforceable or useless. When the cost of their proposals is challenged, the do-something crowd quickly deploys its "if-it-saves-one-life" excuse and demonizes its critics as enablers of future mass shootings. Still,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/26/13 | Michal Conger
    ABC is defending its decision to edit out an apparently erroneous claim by Michelle Obama in its broadcast of the first lady’s interview on Good Morning America today, saying it made the changes “solely” for the sake of time. As The Washington Examiner reported this morning, the first lady claimed during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed in Chicago shortly after performing during the President’s Inauguration, was shot because “some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need.” In fact, Chicago Police reported Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened...

    A troop of turkeys goes house-hunting in Berkeley While the suburban residents of Concord try to deal with that wayward camel at commute time, the folks in quiet Albany are battling their own random creatures. We came across this fun news item this morning from CBS, which explains how a dozen or so wild turkeys are overrunning the small town of Albany with their annoying gobbles, clucks, and cackles. Interestingly enough, the turkey troops showed up after Thanksgiving and have overstayed their welcome. Parents are worried these wild birds will try to take on their children (sounds like a Stephen...

    Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim Miller cited religion Tuesday in arguing that an openly gay player would not be welcomed in NFL locker rooms. “There are some religions that are just not going to accept a gay individual in the locker room,” Miller told "The McNeil and Spiegel Show" on WSCR-AM 670. “So now, are you as an organization going to bring that element into your locker room and think everything is going to be OK?

  • OUTRAGE: DHS Releases ‘Thousands’ of Illegal Aliens from Prison – Citing ‘Budget Cuts’

    standwitharizona.com ^ | 26 February, 2012 | John Hill
    Despite potential budget cuts being 4 days away and with Congress and the Administration negotiating to avoid them, the Department of Homeland Security has already started releasing hundreds of illegal aliens held in local jails in anticipation of automatic “sequestration” cuts – out of a planned total of more than 10,000 aliens to be released. Sources tell Stand With Arizona that DHS has “34,000 beds” for illegal aliens, meaning that Secretary Janet Napolitano is releasing nearly 1/3 of all DHS-detained illegal aliens in the United States – despite the fact that no actual cuts have even begun, and despite a...

    Jhaqueil Reagan started at Papa Roux restaurant on Monday after making quick impression on co-owner Art Bouvier, who picked him up three miles into his walk. And now business has doubled. An Indianapolis teen was intent on walking 10 miles in freezing conditions for a job interview. Then a kind stranger offered him a lift — and a job. And as a result, the good Samaritan has seen his business double. Jhaqueil Reagan set of early Friday morning on his journey to another part of the city for a 1 p.m. job interview at an Indianapolis store. It was roughly...
