    CHARLES WOODS, father of Tyrone Woods: 'I can’t imagine anyone with any heart that would watch a battle rage for seven hours knowing that heroes were there that were going to be slaughtered if you didn’t have help sent in. Because we know that C130s could have been sent there in less than an hour. Jets could have been scrambled in minutes from many different parts of the globe. The order was 'don’t help them, let them die.'
  • Romney to Take RNC Victory Lap

    Mitt Romney will take a victory lap before members of the Republican National Committee when the party meets at an annual event in Scottsdale, Ariz., this week While Romney is not formally the party's nominee yet -- he has not clinched the 1,144 delegates required to secure the nomination, and two other candidates remain in the race -- party rules all but guarantee he will win enough delegates to claim the nomination on the first ballot at the GOP's convention in Tampa. Recognizing that reality, Romney and the RNC set up a joint fundraising account earlier this month to begin...
  • What Conservative Media?

    At least we could, until quite recently, take solace that we had our own conservative media bastion, although it was nowhere near the size and the scope of the “lamestream media” (a term coined by Bernard Goldberg and made popular by Sarah Palin). But at some point after the turn of the century, just as a majority of Americans began to visualize the true proportions of the larger media’s malpractice, our own little conservative press safe house had suffered a nasty termite infestation. Out of sight and out of mind behind the virtual walls of our conservative citadel of communications,...
  • Waukesha Co. DA investigates alleged Mitt Romney subs-for-votes

    A spokesperson for Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel told 27 News Schimel has launched an investigation into allegations that free sandwiches given out on election day by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney violated Wisconsin law. Waukesha County investigator detective David Witkowski told 27 News the criminal probe began Wednesday with interviews and requests for records. On Tuesday, April 3, Romney and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan greeted people at a Cousins Subs restaurant on Pearl Street. News video shows Romney encouraging people to vote and inviting them to pick up free sandwiches. "A reasonable person would understand that Romney's statement...

    Ten people were killed and at least 39 others were wounded in shootings across the (Chicago) city this weekend. Most of the victims, male and female, ranged in age from their mid-teens to 30s, with the notable exception of a 6-year-old girl who was shot dead as she played on the front porch of her home in the Little Village neighborhood. Neighbors said Aliyah Shell was playing on the porch of her home in the 3100 block of South Springfield Avenue about 3:40 p.m. Saturday while her parents sat on the front steps. A small gray pickup truck stopped in...

  • President Obama’s Top Five Energy Whoppers

    With both President Obama and his chief strategist David Axelrod attacking Newt’s $2.50 gas plan this weekend, it is worthwhile to take a look at who is really trying to sell the American people “snake oil.” President Obama has been traveling the country making demonstrably false excuses for his failures on energy policy. To borrow a line from White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, “I won’t attribute motivations…I’ll just say that anybody who says these things doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” “WE’RE DRILLING ALL OVER” FALSE: “Do not tell me that we’re not drilling. We’re drilling all over this...

    As I understand it, Sandra Fluke is a young coed who attends Georgetown Law, and recently testified before Congress. Oh, wait, no. Update: It wasn’t a congressional hearing; the Democrats just got it up to look like one, like summer stock, with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid doing the show right here in the barn, and providing a cardboard set for the world premiere of Miss Fluke Goes to Washington, with full supporting cast led by Chuck Schumer strolling in through the French windows in tennis whites and drawling, “Anyone for bull****?” Oh, and the “young coed” turns out to...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) used a floor speech Thursday to rattle off a list of apologies he said President Obama has issued since entering office. Gohmert produced an oversized chart of not only Obama's apologies over the past three years, but also issues and events Gohmert thought more deserving of the president's time. "I thought, maybe it would be helpful to track exactly what deserves apology and what doesn't," the conservative lawmaker, known for colorful floor rhetoric, said in his speech. Marker in hand, the Texas representative then went down his list, marking off each event as either worthy of...

    Another brilliant forreign policy move by the community organizer in chief... The Obama Administration will release five Gitmo Taliban detainees in a 'peace' deal with the Islamist terror group. This comes two days after the Taliban murdered six British troups. Reuters reported: Five Taliban detainees held at the Guantanamo Bay military prison have agreed to be transferred to Qatar, a move Afghanistan believes will boost a nascent peace process, President Hamid Karzai's spokesman said on Saturday. The transfer idea is part of U.S. efforts to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table to avoid prolonged instability in Afghanistan after foreign...

    JerusalemPost ^ | March 10, 2012 | YAAKOV LAPPIN
    Palestinian terrorists fired at least 80 rockets from Gaza into southern Israel since Friday night, leaving eight Israelis injured in the heaviest series of attacks in months. The barrages came in response to an IAF strike which killed the secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees, Zuhair Qaisi. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted at least five rockets fired from the Gaza Strip at Beersheba and Ashdod early Saturday morning. In total, at least ten rockets have been intercepted by the system since the beginning of the escalation on Friday. The IAF struck targets in Gaza overnight Friday and...

    Realclearpolitics ^ | March 6, 2012 | Laura Ingraham Laura Ingraham talks about Ed Schultz calling her a "right-wing slut" on talk radio and compares it to the way the media is reacting to Rush Limbaugh. "I have an enormous amount of respect for what Barbara Walters accomplished in journalism as a woman, breaking down barriers," Laura remarked today, noting how disappointed she was that Walters seemed to side only with women of a certain political viewpoint when they are personally maligned. Moreover, Walters allowed her program "The View" to be used by the left to sell the "phony narrative" of the "GOP war on women" by sympathetically...
  • Growth and Prosperity Rather Than Austerity

    The best and most effective way to balance the budget is through booming economic growth and prosperity. I know. That is how we did it the last time we balanced the budget, when I was Speaker of the House, and it stayed balanced for four straight years. We produced, in fact, four straight record budget surpluses, totaling $560 billion over those 4 years. You can check the historical record yourself at We achieved that not by raising taxes in return for supposed spending cuts, but by cutting tax rates to create booming growth, and cutting spending. The growth then...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted that Israel must remain “the master of its fate” as President Barack Obama urged restraint in dealing with Iran’s nuclear aspirations. “That's the very purpose of the Jewish state -- to restore to the Jewish people control over our destiny. And that's why my supreme responsibility as prime minister of Israel is to ensure that Israel remains the master of its fate.” Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful energy purposes, but most outside analysts believe it’s aimed at developing nuclear weapons capacity. Still, U.S. intelligence officials don’t think Iran’s program is...

    While the best and brightest conservative leaders in America support and endorse Newt Gingrich for his leadership and historic accomplishments as Speaker of the House, including balancing the federal budget for the first time in decades, it is Newt's astounding debate skill that most astonishes everyone. With the power of the media behind him, it is only on the debate stage where Barack Obama can be defeated. This video, under 5 minutes, gives you a taste of those near-future historic and amazing moments yet to come if we but nominate as the GOP candidate the one man who can beat...
