    American taxpayers have once again been trampled by establishment Republicans – a thundering herd of chicken-hearted Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) galloping to the Left. The debt ceiling deal struck between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is a victory for President Obama and Democrats. ObamaCare is still the law of the land. The government is still spending money it does not have. And thousands of government workers just got a two-week vacation courtesy of the taxpayers. I’m sure we will hear establishment apologists calling the events of recent days a compromise. But seeing how...

    In this powerful documentary produced by Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (http://jpfo.org), you will learn how governments have historically deprived people of firearms ... and then wiped them from the face of the earth. This is the true story of Gun control from around the world, especially in the 20th century. It details how governments have ALWAYS BEEN the biggest threat to the safety, security and prosperity of the people. While Americans can see how this could happen in other countries, most can't EVER imaging it being able to happen here because there are so many rights guaranteed...

I hate them all the more because they know I have to hold my nose this year and vote ABO, which painfully is Romney this year. Puke.

He most assuredly would not approve of his chain of department stores being used to advance the sodomite agenda. J.C. Penney's father was a Baptist preacher and farmer who raised his family with strict discipline in the Christian faith. Victor Parachin, writing for Mature Living magazine, notes how, "The influence of Penney's godly parents became evident with the growth of his business.

Even though Obamacare may be found unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, lame duck Republican House members together with those in secure districts, joined Democrats in allowing Cook County to apply for waivers that would advance its involvement into the Obamacare plan. Although House Minority Leader Tom Cross voted "NO", the following 11 House Republicans voted "YES" with their Democrat colleagues: Franco Coladipietro, Jim...

He wants to do what ACORN wants to do. We’re Screwed ‘08.” This was his supposed “game-changer.” This was the very first thing out of his mouth during the debate tonight — his big pitch right off the bat. The McCain campaign immediately sent out this fact sheet on the proposal, which will cost at least $300 billion. The proposal involves directing the Treasury Secretary to “purchase mortgages...

    An examination of published reports reveals that Scott McClellan's kiss-and-smell betrayal of George W. Bush is a far cry from the book McClellan started out to write and was shaped into an offensive tome by a publisher with close ties to George Soros. To understand how McClellan's literary knife-in-the-back evolved, one has to know something about the book industry. Unlike fiction, a non-fiction book usually hasn't been written before it's sold to a publisher. The author normally puts together an outline and/or synopsis detailing what the book will be about and how it will be structured, and writes 1-3 sample...

    As Senator John McCain slips further and further into the grips of age-realted dementia, his arguments in favor of legalizing 38 million illegal aliens become more and more specious. In 2007, for instance, McCain issued a very bizarre challenge to American patriots who oppose the amnesty travesty that McCain favors. Speaking at a fund-raiser in Houston, the senator said: "I think it’s (immigration reform) a matter of national security,” McCain said, “and to do nothing - to leave the status quo - would be an abrogation of our responsibilities to the American people.” The addled senator added, “If they’ve got...

    Florida Sen. Mel Martinez will endorse John McCain on Friday, The Associated Press has learned, a move likely to give the Republican presidential candidate a crucial boost with the state's Cuban-Americans just days before the primary. The decision is a blow to Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor in a close fight with McCain for support of voters in the Cuban-American community _ and to keep his candidacy alive. Two Republican officials disclosed the upcoming endorsement on the condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting the announcement. As recently as Thursday night, Martinez indicated he would remain neutral in the...

  • McCain MirageThe senator is no ready-for-prime-time commander-in-chief.

    Senator John McCain’s ascendancy in the Republican presidential race has been truly remarkable. Yet, it’s no groundswell. To this point, about two out of every three primary and caucus participants have voted against him. If the Democrats and independents some states permit to crash the Grand Old Party were factored out, his standing in the Republican base would be even less impressive. Still, you have to hand it to his admirers: They have parlayed his thin support into an aura of inevitability. The glow could intensify this week, when McCain is likely, finally, to rack up some more impressive numbers...

I think it’s because both parties are going to their bases rather than going to the middle. I regret it.”...

In an interview with "Fox News Sunday" at his retreat at Camp David, Md., Bush was careful to note that two Republicans are still competing for the nomination, and he did not express a preference. But Bush made clear that he was willing to set aside the tensions he has had with McCain in the past, and he praised the front-runner...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — John McCain faces a dilemma on immigration as he works to persuade conservatives he's tough enough on the issue without erasing his historic appeal to Hispanic voters. Once a crusader for offering the nation's roughly 12 million undocumented immigrants a way to get legal status, McCain now says his first priority is fortifying U.S. borders. The metamorphosis reflects McCain's intensifying effort to consolidate his support among conservatives, who deride the Arizona senator's past proposals on immigration as offering amnesty to lawbreakers, and bitterly resent his work with Democrats, including Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts, on the issue....

Instead, Wussie McCain immediately "apologized" profusely to Obama for Cunningham's using Obama's full name over and over during the intro. This shows how "p.c." and how "wussie" John McCain is when it comes to worrying about how the left is going to perceive him. Instead of concentrating on gaining base support which he sorely needs and can't win without, he's playing to the left and saying to conservatives, "S**w you! I...

Some even question how the governor can so glibly suggest closing state parks while maintaining an increasingly costly and aggressive public relations operation to promote himself. The governor surely has a lot to answer for in how he's handled the state budget, which has been filled to overflowing by years of booming property values. But with his outlandish proposal...

    Senate leaders on Thursday night announced a deal that breathes life into the bipartisan immigration bill that appeared to be stalled just days ago. The deal, which would bring the legislation back to the floor as early as next week, came as a bipartisan group of negotiators worked through Thursday to overcome a procedural hurdle that led Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada to pull the bill from the floor last week. Reid, along with Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, agreed Thursday to bring the bill to the floor after the Senate finishes its work on energy legislation. “We...

Norman Kember, 74, a Christian pacifist, was snatched along with three colleagues shortly after leaving Um al-Qura mosque in west Baghdad, the headquarters of a Sunni Islamic organisation with links to the insurgency.

    The Crusades were a serious betrayal of Christian beliefs, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, said yesterday. Speaking 900 years after Christian warriors sacked Jerusalem, the Archbishop said that any attempt to revive the crusading ideal today would not garner much support among Christians. His comments, made in Pakistan, appeared to be an attempt to reassure Muslims that the Churches are anxious to avert confrontation between the West and Islamic states. In the past he has warned western leaders, particularly President Bush, against using sensitive religious language such as the term "crusade" to justify the war against Iraq. But...

    Conservative icon Richard Viguerie has come out with all guns blazing against Washington Republicans, saying they've abandoned their conservative principles and risk defeat in the 2006 elections. In an open letter addressed to "Conservative Leaders," Viguerie writes: "It has become increasingly clear that Republicans in Washington care little or nothing about grassroots conservatives and the values they hold dear. "After we spent decades defeating the Rockefeller wing of the Party, it seems we have a new enemy - the Washington wing of the GOP. They're not just wasting money; they're actually massively growing government in direct contravention of everything Republicans...

    It will be some time before the full impact of this week’s sellout by seven so-called “moderate” Republicans in the U.S. Senate becomes completely apparent. The plan to break Democrat filibusters of judicial nominees was, in reality, no less than a Republican fight to restore the integrity of the Constitution. But in the face of the Republican defections, Democrats will now credibly claim to have protected it, and the nation as a whole, from the ravages of Republican “extremism.” Despite media spin, this arrangement was no agreement among “centrists” from both parties. The seven Democrats who participated in the deal...

    I watched the Conservative Party of Canada convention and their adoption of resolution. First I saw them adopt the resolution on support for the traditional definition of marriage, I was happy. But then, they adopted a resolution that the Conservative Party will not support any abortion legislation, killing the chances of the party adopting a pro-life stance and my happiness turned into anger. You see everybody, my family used to be a supporter of the liberal party and it was these type of policies that caused my family and I to leave the party. What attracted me to the Conservative...

    For a guy who started his presidential campaign focused on his military service, John Kerry sure doesn't mind leaving that service record shrouded in mystery. There is controversy about every single aspect of Kerry's service – from the time he signed up for duty, to his brief command of a Navy swiftboat in Vietnam, to his commendations, to his medical records, to his departure from Vietnam and, now, even the question of whether he was honorably discharged.

    Hambali, the Islamic militant whose arrest has been hailed as a breakthrough in the war on terrorism, was betrayed after members of his Jemaah Islamiah network fell out over money, according to a senior official in Thailand's defence ministry. In a rare dispute within the tightly knit terrorist network, members of a JI cell in Singapore were angry that comrades in Thailand had frittered away a sizeable sum of money they had sent them to fund a suicide bombing team for operations in the kingdom. When the Singaporeans were later arrested, they opened up to investigators, according to the defence...

    BAGHDAD (AFP) Talal, who once dreamt of being a hero of the Arab resistance, had a rude awakening when he opened his eyes to the sight of the same US marines he had been fighting for weeks watching over him. After a night under the stars on the front lawn of the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad, cordoned off by marine tanks, the young Syrian lifted himself to rest on the palms of his hands Thursday morning, just returning their gaze. And that is all he could do after having regretfully handed back his gun on Wednesday at the sight of...

    Using words like "liar" and "criminal" and "dictator," family members of murder victims and prosecutors across the suburbs were nearly unanimous in their condemnation of Gov. George Ryan for his commutation of death sentences. Complaints ranged from the venue in which Ryan chose to make his announcement to accusations that he had promised families not to grant blanket commutations. "This should be a criminal act," said Dawn Pueschel, sister of murder victim Dean Pueschel. "This is a crime to do what the governor has done." "He spit in our faces," said Katy Salhani, sister of murder victim Debra Evans. claims;...
