    On Friday, Sean Hannity brought Pat Smith, mother of the late Sean Smith, on his radio program. The 34-year-old information management officer was one of four Americans murdered in the Benghazi embassy attack on September 11, 2012. In the chilling interview, a distraught Ms. Smith, in tears, pleaded for answers and spoke of the efforts to silence her. Ms. Smith first relayed how her son, prior to the attack, requested additional security in advance and warned the State Department: He did tell them, ahead of time, he typed it into his little typewriter over there, that they were going to...

    House Democrats were surprised at the number of Republican votes they won on the razor close climate change vote, which allowed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to let a few more Democrats cast their own no votes. In what Democrats are readily admitting was their toughest vote since they took back power in 2007, the eight Republican votes proved critical to letting Pelosi hand out as many free passes as she could to members who thought that it would be too difficult to selling the bill in their districts.   The climate change bill passed 219-212, by just two votes...

    British scientists have developed a revolutionary pill that men could take as a one-off contraceptive just before a date. The tablet would prevent a man from being able to impregnate a woman, but within a few hours his fertility would return to normal. This would make it much more acceptable to men than other 'male pills' under development, which alter hormone levels and have to be taken over the long term. It is also more likely to be trusted by women as they are not relying on their man having to remember to take his pill every day for it...

    TRENTON - .....Gillespie got his first taste of campaigning by working on his mother's successful nonpartisan bid to become the first woman elected to the local school board. During his senior year at Pemberton Township High School in 1979, Gillespie launched his own political career as president of the student council. Then, in college at Catholic University, he got a rather unusual start in Washington politics - as a Senate parking attendant. On Gillespie's 22nd birthday, he started a job running a district office for then-Florida Rep. Andy Ireland - a Democrat. In 1984, Ireland changed parties to run on...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading pro-life Congressman has placed internal documents from the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) into the Congressional Record. The action makes the documents publicly available in light of threatening letters CFAM and LifeNews.com have received seeking to stop the dissemination of the materials. The Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (CFAM), a pro-life organization that lobbies at the United Nations, announced earlier this month that an anonymous source sent it copies of a 60-page document summarizing the conclusions of strategic planning meetings held by CRR in late October. Pro-life Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) entered the...
