    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.'

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

Super Tuesday is upon us and with that, the nomination race could be all but over unless conservatives and libertarians finally unite behind one candidate, a candidate who can beat both Romney AND Obama. That candidate needs to be Newt. Among the not-Romney's he is the only one who can unite the party. Economic conservatives like him because he balanced the budget and reformed welfare. Defense hawks like him because he is the most hawkish of the lot. Social conservatives, when they can get past his personal life, like him for his strong record on...

    This week Israel’s Civil Administration approved a plan to build 500 housing units in the West Bank community of Shiloh. U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner complained like clockwork that such building is not “constructive.” In so doing, he was following a U.S. practice of frequently publicly criticizing its ally Israel. No other U.S. ally gets this treatment; when was the last time you heard Washington publicly take Britain, Germany, or Japan to task? And this in a week when the U.S. is already heavily pressuring Israel both publicly and behind the scenes not to defend itself against a growing...

    We have officially lost our minds. The New York Times reports that President Obama has sent a formal letter of apology to Afghanistan’s ingrate president, Hamid Karzai, for the burning of Korans at a U.S. military base. The only upside of the apology is that it appears (based on the Times account) to be couched as coming personally from our blindly Islamophilic president — “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident. . . . I extend to you and the Afghani people my sincere apologies.” It is not couched as an apology from the American people,...

    Three years ago, most observers of the Middle East were sure about one thing: the newly elected coalition government in Israel being put together by Benjamin Netanyahu couldn’t last. In particular, the Obama administration, which was only a month old itself, was hopeful Netanyahu would quickly flop and be replaced by the more pliant Tzipi Livni, the leader of the Kadima Party. Thirty-six months later, as the Israeli prime minister prepares to journey to Washington for another crucial summit with President Obama, there is no talk about the post-Netanyahu era.

    Leadership: A great debater. Politically polarizing. Prone to error, but also prone to spectacular success. Steeped in history. Politically brilliant. Unorthodox. Audacious. All these qualities were once used to describe Winston Churchill. Today, you might use the same words to describe Newt Gingrich. Sound absurd? Not when you think about it. Churchill, like Gingrich, was a brilliant politician with a powerful sense of the occasion.

    Gas prices are spiking. That's great news, right? We have to wean ourselves off the stuff. At least that's what we've been hearing for years. Oil is dirty. We import it from nations that hate our guts (like Canada!). And moreover, we're running out. Oil is "finite." Finite much in the way water is finite. So why aren't Democrats making the case that the spike in prices is a good thing? Isn't this basically our energy policy these days? If Democrats had their way, after all, we would be enjoying the economic results of cap-and-trade policy these days -- a...

    The eventual Republican nominee should offer a clear alternative to President Obama's foreign policy. Accomplishing this means not only telling the truth about worsening foreign threats, it also means challenging the Washington foreign policy establishment and restoring broken tools of national power. Among the contenders, only Newt Gingrich has the temperament - and the battle scars - to be trusted to wage and win the struggles looming ahead. Telling the truth about the threats we face differs fundamentally from Mr. Obama's approach. The president has said repeatedly that "the tide of war is receding." From the time he first said...

    PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.-- Newt Gingrich had a message for rivals Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney at a campaign event in his native Georgia Friday: bawk bawk bawwwk.

A near-consensus exists among the governments of the world and among media writers that peace has yet to break out in the Middle East because of three principle reasons.

    A recent front page of The New York Times featured an article entitled "Drug chieftains tied to Taliban are US targets - Shift in Afghan policy." It stated that: "Fifty Afghans believed to be drug traffickers with ties to the Taliban have been placed on a Pentagon target list to be captured or killed... and that major traffickers with proven links to the insurgency have been put on the 'joint integrated prioritized target list.' That means they have been given the same target status as insurgent leaders, and can be captured or killed at any time." According to this newly...
