Such comments from seven involved Bangor Public Schools faculty include ratings of who they'd have sex with, marry, or kill.

    State Sen. Stacey Campfield, co-chairman of Newt Gingrich’s campaign in Tennessee, announced today he is quitting that position to support Rick Santorum in the Republican presidential race. The Knoxville Republican made his announcement in a post on his blog. In an interview, Campfield said he believes that conservatives need to unite behind a single candidate and that Santorum is best positioned to defeat “establishment Republican” candidate Mitt Romney. Campfield’s decision comes after a conversation with Santorum earlier this week. In his blog post, Campfield said he was “twisted inside because of my loyalty to Newt, my loyalty must first lie...

    "This was a terribly misguided judgement," Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York said in an interview of CBS This Morning. Dolan, who is set to become a cardinal later this month, said he met with Obama in the Oval Office late last year and was promised the White House would work with the Catholic church on a number of issues, including education, healthcare and charitable work. "I am hoping that this massive negative reaction to this ruling, I am hoping that he will go back to those assurances that he gave me," Dolan said.
  • Planned Parenthood: How advocacy writers open your wallet with a deceptive key

    The Senators, Ms. Pelosi, and media onslaught against the non-profit group, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, was not just some spontaneous flash mob of bullies and donors. Planned Parenthood was notified of Komen group’s decision to defund them in December. That left two months for professional advocates and their copywriters to design and coordinate a media, Internet, and social media onslaught, a public relations free-for-all where Planned Parenthood, the Senators, Ms. Pelosi and others could make any accusations they want.
  • Komen Still Doesn’t Acknowledge Abortion-Breast Cancer Link

    “Our group will remain as Komen’s critic as long as it continues to work against its own mission to eradicate breast cancer,” Malec told LifeNews. “Komen’s decision is a step in the right direction to protect women’s lives. However, I will not donate to Komen while it is still cooperating in the cover-up of the abortion-breast cancer link and downplaying the risk of using oral contraceptives.” Malec says “Planned Parenthood is a primary cause of the breast cancer epidemic. It sells cancer-causing abortions and oral contraceptives.” “Medical texts reveal that increased childbearing, especially starting early before age 24, substantially reduces...

    A Florida teacher who was suspended for statements that disapproved of legalized homosexual marriage in New York has been reinstated, attorneys representing the veteran educator have announced. "This is a great day for the Constitution," said Harry Mihet, senior litigation counsel for Liberty Counsel, which worked on the case involving Jerry Buell. "By fully exonerating Mr. Buell, the Lake County (Fla.) School Board has reaffirmed what the rest of Americans already knew. The First Amendment protects the right of public servants to express their personal opinion without any fear or intimidation. It is a shame that Mr. Buell had to...

    In a demonstration of the overwhelming support of mainstream America for conservative principles, Glenn Beck's 'Restoring Honor' rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. is drawing 'hundreds of thousands,' according to McClatchy Newspapers. Early reports indicate that so large is the crowd that attendees were having difficulty hearing the speakers. A quick scan of mainstream news outlets that have done actual estimates this morning indicates that attendance at this point is between 300,000 and 500,000 people. And attendees are still arriving at the rally, which began some 90 minutes ago. Newsbusters is live-streaming the event. Michelle Malkin reports that...

    Kalamazoo Central High School in western Michigan has won a national contest to have President Barack Obama as its commencement speaker this spring, the White House announced Tuesday. Obama will speak June 10, the Kalamazoo Public Schools said. Other Cabinet members will address graduates at the five other semifinalist schools.

"This honor validates the efforts and success not simply of a school or even of a school district but of an entire broader educational community." U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan announced the choice...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Outside the U.S. Supreme Court, speakers blared with the frantic strums of guitars and the voices of four young men singing gospel songs — rock and roll style. Donning shaggy beards and seated on a makeshift stage, the four were among thousands of pro-life Christian activists protesting the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. Out on the streets, a small band of Yale students led a different chant. Glory, glory, hallelujah! In the beauty of the lilies, Christ was born across the sea,” the Yalies’ voices sang in harmony,...

    The thirty-seventh annual March for Life took place yesterday in Washington, DC, with several northern and southern New Jersey contingents participating. Unofficial estimates of the crowd size vary from 250,000 to 400,000, which would be the largest crowd that the annual event has drawn. New Jersey conservative activist Andrew P. Schlafly, founder of Conservapedia, led a 93-member contingent of home-school students, families, and older adults that traveled to Washington on two chartered buses to participate in the rally and march. Other New Jersey contingents were on hand, including several from multiple towns in North Jersey and at least one from...

    WASHINGTON – Organizers say some 300,000 people, mostly young, walked under overcast skies Friday to stand up for the preborn at the annual March for Life. They were joined by another 78,000 virtual pro-lifers, including former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who marched with them online in the first-ever Virtual March for Life. "Affirming the dignity and worth of every innocent human life and defending the defenseless are fundamental American values," Palin wrote Thursday in her Facebook page. "With that in mind, this peaceful, hopeful grassroots crowd of individuals, families and students comes to...

    In January 2009 we brought a six-camera crew to Washington to create a documentary on the subject of the annual March for Life called Thine Eyes. What motivated Steve Sanborn, the organizer of the project and a March veteran, was the media's historic failure to capture the numbers, the demographics or the spirit of the marchers. With the advantage of rooftop cameras, we estimated there were about 350,000 participants, about 75 percent of whom were under 25, with more females than males among the young people. I also assigned our six cameramen to find as many pro-abortion protestors as they...
