    OTTAWA, January 21, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - African media is reporting that a state visit by Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan to Canada planned for February has been canceled by the Canadian government because Jonathan signed his country’s controversial homosexuality law. The law imposes a 14-year prison sentence on anyone who enters a “same-sex marriage contract or civil union” or aids and abets such an action. It also bans public displays of affection between homosexuals, along with gay clubs and organizations. SaharaReporters.com reports that sources in Abuja said the Nigerian ambassador to Canada, Ojo Madueke, was told by an undisclosed Canadian official...

    (CNSNews.com) - "I don't need a teleprompter," Vice President Joe Biden said as he rose to speak at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Breakfast in Washington on Monday. He then launched into a speech full of political anecdotes, memories of his early activism in the civil rights movement, and indignation about alleged attempts to curb voting rights. Biden said he got involved in the civil rights movement "when I was just a kid." "The issue that really got me involved in the first place -- I was the only white kid working in the East Side (of Scranton, Pa.)...I...

    It’s not too difficult to understand that we are well on our way to a paradigm shift in America; in fact we’re in the midst of it right now. The writing is on the wall and can no longer be ignored. The US government has run up trillions of dollars in debt, and given the recent debates over the country’s debt ceiling, we can rest assured that neither Congress nor the President will act to curtail spending and balance the budget. We will continue adding trillions of dollars to the national debt clock until such time that our creditors no...

    It is striking how many of the acts of jihad and Islamic violence are committed by converts. Hundreds of converts have fled to Syria, Sudan and Somalia to wage jihad. Why aren’t converts to Islam inspired to, say, cure cancer? Fight for women’s rights? Further science? Islamic honor killing is a religious imperative under Islam. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Role of the Mosque and the Muslim Community in an Honor Killing And yet even in death, the victim is violated again, as the motive is denied or refused. Islamic supremacists and their lefttwing lapdogs immediately...

    It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team. “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said. This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true. Before Benghazi, they claimed al-Qaeda was defeated and on the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 17, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Broken families and multiple sex partners lead to more abortions, according to a new report unveiled Wednesday by the Family Research Council. The report, co-authored by the Family Research Council's Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI) director, Pat Fagan, Ph.D., and Visiting Fellow Scott Talkington, Ph.D., was based on data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). It found that almost 90 percent of women admitting to at least one abortion have had at least three sexual partners. Women from intact families had an abortion rate 10 percent lower than women from...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 17, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The father of former GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been harassed six times since 2008, says the Tea Party favorite’s brother. “My father, who worked multiple jobs and faithfully and honestly paid his taxes for fifty years, had never heard a word from the IRS,” wrote Chuck Heath, Jr. on his Facebook page. “In 2008, his daughter was tapped to run for vice president of the United States. Since that time, he has been, in his words ‘horribly harassed’ six times by the agency.” In 2010, the IRS began investigating organizations...

    Late yesterday, Washington lawmakers dropped a massive, 1,582-page spending bill that will fund the entire government for fiscal year 2014. Known as the omnibus spending bill, the gigantic legislative text works off a budget deal that set spending at $1.012 trillion—$45 billion more than previous spending caps that were agreed upon by a bipartisan majority in 2011. In other words, your tax dollars will fund this bloated spending bill, which adds to the nation’s debt of $17 trillion. With so much at stake, The Foundry has posted the actual bill for you to read. Last night and into the early...

    House Oversight Committee chairman Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said that a recent news report outlines how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is using tactics that amount to “Fast and Furious revisited” in a bid to increase support for the Obama Administration’s gun control crusade. During a Sunday program on Fox News, Issa discussed a recent report by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel which details how ATF agents operating stings in six different cities “took advantage of the mentally ill, set up stings near churches and schools and made decisions which some claim actually increased crime in their neighborhoods.” “This...

    Iran's "moderate" president, Hassan Rouhani, tweeted this morning that "world powers," including the U.S., had "surrendered" to the "Iranian nation's will" in confirming a six-month interim nuclear deal that will allow the Iranian regime to continue its advanced centrifuge program and develop a new nuclear facility at Arak. President Barack Obama, meanwhile, implored Americans to "give peace a chance" with the Iran deal. Though the Obama administration claims that the interim deal--which includes a secret side deal--will lead Iran to give up any ambitions of becoming a nuclear power, the regime has publicly declared that the agreement reached in Geneva...

    (CNSNews.com) - Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says unless Congress acts, the Highway Trust Fund will run out of money at the end of fiscal 2014 -- "because people are driving less, driving more fuel-efficient cars, and the gas tax hasn't been raised in many years." Monies in the Trust Fund fund -- derived mostly from excise taxes on gasoline and other fuels -- fund the federal government's highway and mass transit projects. "And if Congress doesn't step up and either increase the gas tax, they will have to take the money out of the general fund. And the...

    Hawaii Free Press ^ | 1/10/2014 | Amy Paybe
    Passing bills to find out what’s in them… that was so 2010, right? Sadly, no. Any day now, Congress is likely to release the trillion-dollar Trojan horse that is the spending bill for 2014. It’s going to be big, and it’s going to be rushed. And few members of Congress (if any) are going to read it all. Government budgeting isn’t supposed to be done this way. It takes 12 spending bills to fund the entire government. But in an omnibus—the type of bill experts are expecting—Congress throws all of those together and just votes once on the whole thing....

    I received the following email from a trusted friend, Sol Sanders, who’s a longtime Asia correspondent. The information in the email is also consistent with what I’ve researched on the net. “USDA approves import of chicken processed in China despite safety concerns” has a list of Chinese food safety incidents which reads like a horror story. I’ve long stopped buying any foods — produce, frozen seafood, canned — from China. After reading this email, I will also stop buying any foods, esp. seafood, imported from S.E. Asian countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia because, as I had suspected, they’re...

    I see where this was removed from FREE Republic with the reason given by the 'moderator' as it being a rip off. That's just not true. In fact it's a barefaced lie! Do you people do any research before your arbitrarily remove an article of importance? This was posted on GOP's site and credit was given to AP for writing the artucle, it then excerpted. I'm developing an opinion that some of you faceless censors qualify for a position with the central socialist government.
