    The New York Times/CBS News poll showed Mr. Santorum commanding a lead over Mr. Romney among several important groups that he has done well with in a number of primaries thus far. Mr. Santorum leads among Tea Party supporters by 40 to 21 percent, conservatives by 43 to 24 percent and evangelical Christians by 47 to 22 percent.

    Knoxville News Sentinel ^ | March 3, 2012 | Tom Humphrey
    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.

    The Washington Times ^ | February 5, 2012 | Peter Bella
    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.

    “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. "We are delighted to welcome President Obama to Kalamazoo," Superintendent Michael F. Rice said in a statement.

    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...

    American Thinker ^ | 1/23/2010 | Jack Cashill
    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...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Americans of all ages and races flooded the nation's capital today for the annual March for Life to express their opposition to the destruction of more than 52 million unborn children.

    James Pouillon, aka "the sign guy," was the abortion rights opponent gunned down in suburban Owosso, Michigan, early Friday morning. Shortly after his murder, a Facebook Friend of mine with a conservative political outlook posted the question: "Where is the outrage?"

    Days after the shooting death of anti-abortion activist James Pouillon, some abortion opponents are asking why abortion rights supporters haven’t condemned the slaying. Harlan Drake has been charged in the deaths of Pouillon, a 63-year-old retired autoworker who was known locally for wielding signs depicting aborted fetuses, and another man Friday in Owosso, Mich. Police say Drake, 33, intended also to kill a third man. According to the Associated Press, prosecutors say Drake had been irritated by Pouillon’s protests, but police have said little about what might have led Drake to kill, other than that he had a grudge against...

    KALAMAZOO -- With Brian Kudary standing before an overflow, overheated crowd Tuesday night, raising objections to a national health-care proposal, it appeared Kalamazoo's town-hall meeting might break into a furor. "Well, what's your answer?" blurted Bob Connelly, of Kalamazoo, from the rear of the room, expressing frustration with Kudary's position. While Kudary pressed on with criticisms, several people in the crowd left their seats to quell Connelly. After several minutes, Connelly settled down, and the remainder of Kalamazoo's two-hour town hall on changing America's health-care coverage continued without confrontation. The meeting, sponsored by Kalamazoo Single-Payer Across the Nation, drew more...

    Clinton, Daschle, Geithner… The big-name speculation over President-elect Barack Obama’s Cabinet appointments can wait while Obama watchers focus on another critical name that surfaced on Friday: Sidwell. The Associated Press is reporting that the Obamas have chosen the Sidwell Friends School in Washington for daughters Sasha, seven years old, and Malia, 10. The private Quaker school’s alumni include former presidential offspring Chelsea Clinton and Tricia Nixon Cox, as well as House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank and a former princess of Japan. Sidwell Friends beat out another elite school, Georgetown Day School. Michelle Obama and her daughters reportedly visited both...

    It is an obvious understatement to say last night was an historic one for our country. But something remarkable happened for the Republican party in Michigan that many might have overlooked. For the first time in over 100 years, voters elected a black Republican to the House of Representatives. Michigan, in fact, elected two black Republicans - Larry DeShazor and Paul Scott. I heard one lady in Chicago's Grant Park last night say, "Now, blacks have shown they can do anything!" Indeed, but this truism is something the party of Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. have believed for...

    Early poll results Tuesday night showed California voters leaning toward overturning same-sex marriage in the state in a decision that could impact how the issue plays out elsewhere in the nation. Approval of Proposition 8 would be a stunning upset in a $70-million campaign that just weeks ago looked to be running in favor of preserving gay marriage rights. By 9 p.m. in California, 54.5 % of voters favored passing Prop 8, as the measure is known, and 45.5% were against it, with 20.9% of precincts voting, according to the Secretary of State. However, both sides cautioned that the vote...

    SIOUX FALLS, SD (LifeSiteNews) - On Monday, July 21, eight women arrived at the Planned Parenthood office in Sioux Falls in South Dakota for abortions, but were instead met with locked doors and a hand-written note indicating the only abortion clinic in South Dakota was closed. Planned Parenthood closed its doors after their abortionists, who are flown in from other states, refused to work under the new law that went into effect last Friday. The law orders abortionists to inform patients of the humanity of their babies and that the procedure could affect their mental health two hours before the...

    A friend recently asked: “How long do we have left as a society?” In answer to that question I informed her about an interesting and comprehensive study that a renowned British anthropologist, Joseph Unwin, PhD., presented to the British Psychological Society in 1935. Unwin sought to prove that the traditional monogamous model for marriage was not essential to the maintenance of a healthy society. After studying 86 different cultures, across time and continents –and much to his surprise — he came to the inescapable conclusion that the traditional male-female monogamous model for marriage was indeed the best foundation for a...

    During last night's Democrat presidential debate, Barack Obama for the 2nd time said his biggest legislative regret thus far was voting to try to stop Terri Schindler Schiavo's husband from starving and dehydrating her to death. According to today's Miami Herald: He said he wished he had spoken out when Republican lawmakers tried to stop the severely brain-damaged woman's husband from removing her feeding tube in 2005. "It wasn't something I was comfortable with, but it was not something that I stood on the floor and stopped, and I think that was a mistake.'' That vote was unanimous. This means...

The group prayed and sang as a noisy group of counter protesters tried to drown them out by beating on drums and chanting, "Go Home." Hutcherson, who had called for 1,000 "prayer warriors" to join him in protesting a national day to call attention to the harassment of lesbian and gay students, said his group was not against homosexuals or the Day of Silence. "We're against giving an entire school day to one club...
