  • Ron Paul Agrees With Obama: The Debate Over Benghazi Is A ‘Sideshow’

    05/17/2013 1:49:03 PM PDT · by mnehring · 49 replies
    Could President Obama have read this op-ed by Ron Paul before his joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron this morning? The president’s assessment of the Benghazi scandal was remarkably similar to that of the former congressman. Both men called the controversy a “sideshow.” While Obama primarily went after Republicans for trying to politicize his administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya last September, Paul chose a more equal opportunity approach in his article, published this morning on the website of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. “Congressional hearings, White House...

    Fox News ^ | April 18, 2012
    A prominent anti-gay marriage group is accusing the Obama administration's IRS of leaking private tax files that listed Mitt Romney as a contributor -- documents which were later published by a group whose president is tied to the Obama campaign. The National Organization for Marriage is on the warpath over the alleged breach. It has called for an IRS investigation and fired off a warning letter to the Human Rights Campaign, the pro-gay marriage group that first published the documents before taking them down. The group claims it appears somebody within the IRS fed the Human Rights Campaign the documents...

  • Actor Kevin Sorbo hits ‘pro choice folks’ over abortion clinics that promote infanticide: ‘murder’

    04/30/2013 9:43:20 AM PDT · by mnehring · 31 replies
    According to soulless asshat William Saletan of Slate, exposing an abortion clinic worker who counseled a woman to “flush” a baby born alive after a late-term abortion isn’t nearly as abhorrent as snitching on that worker. Media Matters and Amanda Marcotte agree: Lila Rose is the real monster for secretly taping clinic employees and exposing their barbaric love affair with the culture of death. Never mind that one clinic worker said any baby born alive after abortion would be dropped in a deadly, toxic solution to ensure “termination.” It’s all about choice. “Hercules” and “Andromeda” actor Kevin Sorbo isn’t having...

    04/29/2013 4:57:02 PM PDT · by mnehring · 22 replies
    In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing and the subsequent capture of one and killing of the other suspect, a number of conspiracy theories have arisen (as they always do) .

  • Another race-tinted showdown in Hawaii (D)

    04/28/2013 12:49:12 PM PDT · by mnehring · 32 replies
    The Hawaii Democratic Party has a long history of primaries split along racial lines, with contests often coming down to an Asian-American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander candidate and a white one, referred to as ”haole” in Hawaiian. And if it wasn’t Hanabusa challenging Schatz, it was likely to be another Asian-American Democrat, because Asian candidates often win in a state that is just 26 percent white. Over the last 20 years, there have been 10 major Democratic races that pitted a white candidate against an Asian-American one, including four out of six Honolulu mayor’s races and three out of...
