    In a fiery speech to social conservatives Friday, Virginia lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson blasted the media for questioning his positions on social issues. Jackson, a bishop, said that when he first got into the race he was asked by reporters about controversial statements he has made concerning Planned Parenthood (which he once compared to the Ku Klux Klan) and gay marriage. “Well, I want to go on record here,” Jackson said, speaking at the Values Voter Summit. “I didn’t apologize then, I don’t apologize now and I will never apologize for standing up for the truth.”

  • Do You Have The Courage To Watch This Movie?

    I’m going to guess that 90% will claim you do, but then do nothing. Sorry, folks, but that’s who we are, and I hope by challenging you, you will prove me wrong. Let me explain: Take a look around you. Are you happy with where our society has gone? Does it bother you to see the amount of violence our society seems to accept as “normal?” Are you uncomfortable seeing children grow up with virtually no concept of right and wrong? Does it trouble you that young adults seem to make up their own rules as they go along, eschewing...

    President Barack Obama judged last summer’s subsidies to new car buyers “one of this nation’s most successful programs, ever. At a cost of only $30 billion, we were able to induce 700,000 people to buy new cars—both stimulating the economy and helping to reduce air pollution. It’s an unprecedented accomplishment, one unmatched by any previous administration.” Gene Sperling, senior counsel to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, contended that “the decision to go ahead with the program in the face of the relentless opposition from free market fanatics has to rank as the most courageous decision by a US President since Lincoln’s...

    SAN FRANCISCO – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called President Bush “very courageous” Tuesday for pressing ahead with a contentious immigration reform plan, a welcome boost from a fellow Republican on an issue that has split the party. Schwarzenegger rebuked those he described as partisan critics for trying to torpedo the bipartisan immigration deal struck by the Senate. It would allow 12 million illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. while they took steps to gain citizenship. “I think it's inexcusable that we have had this system, and that people are fighting from the far right and the far left over this...

Tom Tilley, 55, killed the nearly 200-pound bear by jumping on its back and stabbing the aggressive animal with a six-inch hunting knife after his dog alerted him and distracted the bear. "Love is a very powerful emotion and my thought right away was, 'You're not going to kill my dog,' " Tilley said yesterday. "I really consider my dog a hero.

    WHO'S HOT.... 1. MARK STEYN Praise to the finest political pundit of our time. His name is Mark Steyn. He's a proud Canadian. But unlike the wishy-washy wusses who dominate Canada's elite media, Steyn is as outfront, insightful and wise as one can hope for in a journalist these days. And because of his forthrightness, he spends his days in journalistic exile, a courageous global voice for reason and liberty whose wise and cautionary words about today's global insanity turn up in publications all around the globe (except in Canada). Who else but Mark Steyn could so aptly describe the...

    MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (Oct. 6, 2005) -- Marines don’t leave other Marines behind. Marines don’t leave civilians behind either, as proven by a pair of two-time Operation Iraqi freedom veterans. The city of Oceanside recognized the heroic efforts of two Marine corporals Sept. 21, who rescued an elderly woman from her burning vehicle three months ago just outside Camp Pendleton’s gate. “We are very proud to have these two individuals so close to our city and thank them for all they have done,” said Oceanside mayor James F. Wood, as he presented a certificate of appreciation to...

    The New York Times and the Associated Press, (two news agencies whose work in Andean Latin America is suspiciously similar) are at it again. They say that since our ally Colombia is fighting a terrorist war on a heated battlefield, the sky must be falling. They seize on Colombia's recent battlefield losses, as well as local complaints, as proof the nation is overwhelmed, the terror war is lost, and its president doesn't know what he's doing. As far as they are concerned, Colombia might as well surrender to the communists. And their gloating subtext? Another Bush defeat. In the U.S.,...

    A couple of folks pointed out to me that some of the terminology in the original article might be cannon fodder for media communists who want to smear this site the same way they keep smearing Heston. I've reworked the article, but I'll only post the link so nobody with an agenda can blame the site for it. To summarize, I was saying that I had fallen for the media portrayal of Heston without having all the facts, and that the more I learn about him (primarily from this site) the more I feel he merits admiration and respect. Plus,...
