If you were not able to make it to the rally yesterday, or did so and can do more, PLEASE come back to give the representatives that are actually...

(Click for video)*note. This in not my video and that is not my video intro calling the protesters 'unruly.' You tell me.. are these unruly, dangerous, right-wing extremist?

    House Republicans and tea party protesters spent the summer and much of the fall in an awkward mating dance, with neither group too sure it wanted to embrace the other. But they consummated the relationship over the weekend in New York’s 23rd Congressional District, and they’ll come together Thursday in Washington for a coordinated assault on the Democrats’ plans for health care reform.

    March at Capitol planned WednesdayFrom Staff Reports Published: Tuesday, November 3, 2009 1:11 PM CST If you have an opinion about big government and big spending that is going, you have an opportunity to voice that opinion at yet another Tea Party Express gathering at the State Capitol, 6 p.m., Wednesday. In September, Joyce Short and her sister, Lois Rowe, both of Sapulpa, drove to Washington, D.C. to attend the historical March on Washington by Americans who feel this country is being taken in the wrong direction. Joyce said she was offered $500 by a local businessman to help pay...

    Committee chairman Max Baucus, D-Montana, said that while he liked the idea of a public option, he knew a bill that included the provision would be a death sentence for health care reform. But Democratic Sens. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia and Charles Schumer of New York, who sponsored the public option amendments, both indicated that they don't think the debate about the public option is over. Despite his proposal being voted down, Schumer said Tuesday, "Today the odds went up that there'll be a public option in the bill." There's been a lot of focus on the plan in...

    Visitors to Washington D.C. today got to hear what residents in Hamtramck and Dearborn, Michigan, as well as areas of London, Amsterdam and other Western cities already endure five times a day: The sound of amplified Muslim prayers lifted to Allah. This time, the prayers reverberated over America’s front lawn as some 2,000 Muslims gathered for the Jummah Prayer on Capitol Hill: A Day of Islamic Unity. Promoters had planned for 50,000 but came nowhere near that. Hadn’t you heard about this? If not, it’s probably because the media have been tight lipped, the better not to embarrass the One...

    Here is a Fox News video report on an "Islamic National Day of Unity" to be held today at the U.S. Capitol in Washington. They will pray and recite the Koran together. The report quotes Tony Perkins as saying the fact many Muslim leaders have refused to condemn terror attacks around the world leads people to wonder, "Will they be praying for America or against America?"

In April, he traveled to Egypt where he told the Muslim world that America no longer considers itself a Christian nation. He later traveled to Turkey and announced that America was one of the largest Muslim nations in the world (despite the fact that 78% of Americans claim to be Christians but only 1% claim to be Muslims). Then in May, President Obama refused to invite Christian and Jewish leaders to the White House to participate in the National Day of Prayer (as...

    MADISON, Wis. – The nation's largest group of atheists and agnostics filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to block an architect from engraving "In God We Trust" and the Pledge of Allegiance at the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington. The Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation's lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in western Wisconsin, claims the taxpayer-funded engravings would be an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. The House and Senate passed identical resolutions this month directing the Architect of the Capitol to engrave "In God We Trust" and the pledge in prominent places at the entrance for 3 million tourists who visit...

    The U.S. Capitol's Visitor Center is the quintessential public-works project. It began as a modest proposal in 1994: Build an underground area where tourists could get out of the elements while they wait in line to tour the Capitol. From its $70 million beginnings, however, it mushroomed into a three-story, 580,000-square-foot monstrosity that is three-quarters the size of the Capitol itself. Ostentatious only begins to describe the center, which has been dubbed "Congress' tribute to itself." It includes a TV studio where members may record messages for the folks back home, two theaters, an auditorium and an exhibition hall, and...

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Armed with a handheld video camera, a Georgia university student drove with a friend in April 2005 to Washington, D.C., and captured scenes of the Capitol, the Pentagon and other locations. Investigators say Syed Haris Ahmed, now 24, wasn't a tourist but a wannabe terrorist who wanted to send the videos of potential terror targets to an overseas contact. He was attending the Georgia Institute of Technology at the time. The charges, along with an allegation that Ahmed went to Pakistan and tried to join a terrorism group a few months later, are central to a federal...
