    West Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said he is not endorsing President Barack Obama for re-election, saying the president “has apparently made it his mission to drive the backbone of West Virginia’s economy, coal and the energy industry, out of business.” Tomblin is running for re-election in the heavily Democratic and major coal-producing state this year. He won a special election for the governorship last year after Gov. Joe Manchin was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010. “As a loyal member of the Democratic party and as governor for our state, I will continue to do everything I...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 2, 12 | Rasmussen Reports
    With the Republican primary race all but settled, President Obama still holds a slight lead over likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney in combined polling of the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. New Rasmussen Reports telephone surveying of Likely Voters in the so-called Core Four states finds that Obama picks up 46% support to Romney’s 43%. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) The survey of 1,271 Likely Voters in Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia was conducted on April 16-30, 2012 by...
  • Wisconsin: Walker, Barrett in dead heat in recall showdown, poll says

    Madison - Gov. Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett are locked in a dead-even race for governor, according to a poll released Wednesday by Marquette University Law School. The poll also showed Barrett leading his Democratic rivals in Tuesday's primary. The winner of the primary will face the Republican governor in the June 5 recall election. Among registered voters, Barrett led Walker 47% to 46%. That 1-point lead was reversed when considering only likely voters, with Walker holding 48% and Barrett holding 47%.That's "just about as close to a tie as you can possibly get," said the poll's director,...
  • Bill Ayers to University Students: America‘s ’Game Is Over‘ and ’Another World’ Is Coming

    05/02/2012 7:22:26 PM PDT · by InvisibleChurch · 123 replies
    Bill Ayers spoke at the University of Oregon last week on the subject of teaching and organizing for “social justice.”  His speech was not free of the radical sentiments he is well-known for espousing (especially in the company of America’s youth). Case in point: he spoke of the end of America, a new world, and what our role ought to be in all of it. Almost as interesting as Ayers’ speech itself, perhaps, was how the leftist radical was introduced by the university students.  One girl, who described herself as a doctoral student at the university, spoke of the privilege...

    America is in a state of malaise. More than 60 percent of us believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, according to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll. Against that backdrop, people of faith will gather in cities and towns from sea to shining sea to observe the 61st annual National Day of Prayer; to ask God to shed his grace on our troubled land. Of course, not everyone looks forward to today’s observance. “The National Day of Prayer demeans millions of Americans who believe that reason, not prayer is the way to solve the country’s problems,”...

    “The Official C4P 2012 Presidential Endorsement”? I jest, of course. As is typical in all corners of society, the opinions of the editors and contributors at C4P vary like the varieties of coffee available at your local Starbucks. The one thing we’re unified on…the one thing I can claim as the official C4P response with absolute certainty…is that none of us want to see Barack Obama re-elected this November. After that, positions diverge and truly from there on out, I can only speak for myself. A few years ago, it became quite clear to anyone who was even the slightest...

    During Gingrich's speech today on the day of his suspension of his campaign, Gingrich raised and interesting issue about Yemen - saying that it, not Afghanistan, was the center of Al Qaeda. According to some sources, the U.S. is supposedly conducting drone attacks in Yemen against Al Qaeda. But... Would Romney favor sending in Seal team(s) into Yemen (or any other country for that matter in the ME, ally or not) to target high-value terrorists targets? If so, why did Romney say on Aug 1, 2007 the following: "I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a...
  • Gingrich exits presidential race; vows to help Romney

    05/02/2012 2:08:34 PM PDT · by South40 · 77 replies
    Newt Gingrich, the colorful former House speaker and fiery partisan, formally exited the Republican presidential contest Wednesday and vowed to help Mitt Romney's bid to defeat President Barack Obama. Ending a campaign that seesawed between implosion and frontrunner and back again, Gingrich threw his support to his one-time rival as expected and promised his supporters he would continue to push conservative ideas. Gingrich bowed out of the race more than $4 million in debt and his reputation perhaps damaged. "Today, I am suspending the campaign. But suspending the campaign does not mean suspending citizenship," Gingrich told a hotel ballroom in...

    Politico ^ | Wednesday May 2, 2012
    One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama's 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called 'New York girlfriend.' Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail. But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the 'New York girlfriend' was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago. "During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir...

    What would you say if you learned that a member of the highest court in the land has spent the last 30 years openly advocating for the destruction of the US Constitution and even went so far as to accept $20 million from Shariah Law proponents to accomplish her goal? That Supreme Court Justice is Elena Kagan. The year after Ronald Reagan entered the Oval Office with the goal of restoring America to greatness; Elena Kagan penned a telling and disturbing senior thesis titled "To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933." In that body of work, Kagan...

    In this newly released video, volunteers with the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) describe how they were violently assaulted by pro-homosexual "marriage" advocates while promoting traditional marriage on college campuses and in the public square. "That empty slogan about tolerance comes crashing down after you see how TFP volunteers were criminally assaulted by same-sex 'marriage' advocates," said TFP Student Action Director John Ritchie. "The video speaks for itself. They don't tolerate God's marriage. In fact, our volunteers have been bullied, pepper sprayed, hit with glass bottles, sprayed with pesticide, punched, and spit on for...

    As the US beefs up its military presence in the Persian Gulf region, Pentagon strategists estimate that they would need less than a month to defeat Iranian forces should a military conflict take place. US Central Command (CENTCOM) believes it can destroy or significantly degrade Iran's conventional armed forces in about three weeks using air and sea strikes, a defense source told The Washington Post. "We plan for any eventuality we can and provide options to the president," Army Lt. Col. T.G. Taylor, a spokesman at CENTCOM told the newspaper. "We take our guidance from the secretary of defense and...

    I'm done. I'm a lifelong Republican and I'm done. I've been a Republican since I was 6 and I saw Reagan speak on our old 13" black and white television set about freedom and about the evils of the Soviet Union, where I was born. I grew up listening to Reagan and I kind of always thought that he was what the Republican Party stood for. For individual liberty at home & abroad. "Moderates" like George H. W. Bush seemed like some sort of aberration to me, an exception to the conservative Republican rule. Looking back though, it's pretty clear...

    Out of the mouths of babes, from the Washington Post covering the president in South Korea: Obama arrived on the base 3:19 p.m. local time (1 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) and received a rousing welcome from 1,500 troops in camouflage uniforms, many holding cameras or pointing cell phones to snap pictures. “You guys make a pretty good photo op,” the president said. Standing on a riser wearing a blue suit and red tie, with a cluster of troops and a large American flag behind him, Obama expressed “the gratitude of the American public” and said his meetings in four countries...

    What is Ron Paul doing? Rick Santorum has already dropped out of the Republican presidential race. Newt Gingrich is expected to do so this week, Wednesday at the latest. Mitt Romney is virtually guaranteed the nomination. But Ron Paul supporters continue to fight on at Republican caucuses and conventions. Last weekend, they won at the Louisiana caucuses even though Paul managed just 6 percent of the vote in the state's primary earlier this year. The Paulites carried the 1st, 2nd, 5th, and 6th congressional districts. According to one count, 74 percent of the delegates elected to the state convention Saturday...

    Today, Parts 1, 2 & 3. Now that moderate former Massachusetts Governor Mitt is the presumptive Republican nominee for President, many conservatives are asking “What should I do now that it looks like Republicans will not nominate a conservative candidate for President?” First, don’t be Mitt Romney’s cheap date. The grassroots movement conservative voters who powered the Santorum campaign can not be taken for granted. During the 2006 congressional elections some 4 million conservative voters stayed home, producing one of the greatest defeats for the Republican Party in the modern era. Some conservatives were quick to endorse Mitt Romney now...

    Much has been made of Mitt Romney’s failure to even once use the word “conservative” in his post-election speech on April 24. No big surprise here on that one – Romney has made it clear all during the primary season he plans to win the nomination, and if possible the November election, without conservative or Tea Party support, so why change now? While Romney’s failure to use the word “conservative” in his speech didn’t surprise us, one aspect of the speech was more than a little odd. It was obvious the speech was intended to make Romney sound like President...
