    Why did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah? Was the most extensive judgment found anywhere in the Bible outside of the book of Revelation actually for the sin of inhospitality, not homosexuality? People find what they want in the Bible. If one looks hard enough, he can find "biblical" support for reincarnation, Eastern religions, Jesus as a guru, divorce for any reason, and flying saucers. Every cult of Christianity uses the Bible to validate its claims and so does some of the occult. It's not surprising, then, that a recent trend in biblical scholarship holds that a careful reading of Genesis...

    Three top officials in the State Department resigned Wednesday in the wake of a scathing report which slammed "systemic failures" and "management deficiencies" in the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, which resulted in the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Assistant Secretary Eric Boswell, head of the bureau of diplomatic security, and Charlene Lamb, deputy assistant secretary for international programs, have stepped down, CNN and CBS television said, citing unnamed department officials. Lamb, who was Boswell’s deputy in charge of international programs, denied requests from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli for an extension of temporary security...

    Lamb reports to Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security Eric Boswell, who reports to Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, who in turn reports directly to Secretary of State Clinton. A primary responsibility of Boswell and Lamb in Libya was enforcing the "No Marines, No Bullets" State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document signed by Secretary Clinton some time within the past year and a half after the fall of Khadafi's dictatorship in Libya.

    Cedar Rapids Gazette ^ | 14 September 2011 | James Q. Lynch
    Three Iowa Democratic congressmen are being targeted in a million-dollar campaign by groups that say the National Labor Relations Board is overstepping its authority by dictating where businesses can and cannot create jobs. U.S. Reps. Bruce Braley, Dave Loebsack and Leonard Boswell are among 16 House members who are the focus of the national radio and web video ad campaign sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers and National Federation of Independent Business. They are being encouraged to vote for HR 2587, the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act. The legislation is a response to the NLRB’s “recent wave of...

    A Victory Enterprises poll conducted on June 17, 2010 shows State Senator Brad Zaun (R-Urbandale) leading Congressman Leonard Boswell by 9 points. When asked, “If the general election were held today for whom would you vote?” 41% said Zaun, 31.8% said Boswell with 26.8% being undecided. Also only 28.6% of those surveyed said that Boswell deserves to be re-elected, with 52.3% saying it’s time to give somebody else a chance. While there is still a large percentage of people who are undecided, this polling doesn’t bode well for Boswell in a year where the Democrat brand has been damaged due...

    It’s time we set aside the primary and elections for a short moment and take the time to make even more positive change by telling our Congressional Representatives to vote “NO” on healthcare. Pelosi is having trouble mustering the votes needed to pass the Reid’s Christmas Eve healthcare bill the Senate passed completely aware of the fact America didn’t want it. It’s time we all give Congressman Boswell a call and let him know we don’t approve of his vote with Pelosi and his vote against Iowa. We need to flood his phone lines and fax line to make sure...

    DES MOINES, Iowa - Democratic U.S. Rep.

FEC disclosures, which were due Jan. 31, showed Boswell raised $169,621 in the fourth quarter of 2009, though he posted a bank balance of $462,193 at the end of the year. Though...

    Many Iowans are fed up with Governor Chet Culver and other Democrat elected officials. The polls prove it, and so do the fundraising numbers. Republican challengers are raising massive sums of money from in-state contributors. While Democrats are sure to get plenty of support from out-of-state PACs, Iowa Republicans are overwhelmingly being funded by in-state, individual contributors...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., said Monday that Democrats shouldn't shy away from pointing out Republican failures on national security. "If anything is shown by the British uncovering the plot on the airliners, it's simple -- we are not protected," Biden said. Biden, who has said he is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, was in Iowa to campaign for Rep. Leonard Boswell, D-Iowa, who is in a heated re-election campaign in Iowa's 3rd Congressional District. Biden said the report of a bipartisan commission named to review the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks is an example of...
