    Democratic leader: GOP base ‘animated by racism’ By S.A. Miller WASHINGTON – A prominent House Democratic leader showed his contempt for Republican voters Sunday, accusing a large portion of them of being racists. “To a significant extent the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that’s unfortunate,” said Long Island Rep. Steve Israel said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Israel, who is chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was only slightly less insulting to his Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill. Asked if they were racists, Israel responded: “Not all of them, of course not.”...

    Who are the real extremists? By Ed Mechmann The governor of the state of New York has an unfortunate tendency to engage in absolutist, take-no-prisoners ­political rhetoric. Just a few years ago, he declared that anyone who opposed redefining marriage was “anti-New York and anti-American.” So it really should be no surprise when his rhetoric gets out of hand, and shows a lack of respect for those who take opposing ­positions in good faith.

    Back in 2008, when then-candidate Obama promised Joe the Plumber and the rest of America that he intended to spread the wealth around, most democrat and liberal voters embraced the notion of wealth redistribution under the guise of equality. A universal health care plan, that would be free for all Americans, was the promise from the candidate of hope and change. Tens of millions of Americans jumped on the bandwagon waving their flags, fainting at his appearances, and fawning over his every word. None ever thought about where the money would come from for all this new found wealth...

    CNSNews.com) – When asked Friday on Capitol Hill about the 10,535 pages of final regulations that have been published in the Federal Register for implementing Obamacare, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) likened them to science fiction. “Well, I think it’s probably analogous to a Stephen King novel, you know, it’s horrifying once they read what these regulations are,” she said. CNSNews.com told Bachmann that it has been asking representatives and senators who voted for the health care law if they had read all 10,535 regulations.

    Anti-war Democrats in Congress are getting the band back together. Democrats who made their names opposing the Iraq war are not staying silent as a president of their own party prepares to attack Syria. But they’re not exactly demanding that President Barack Obama stand down from launching airstrikes in the country. Like many Republican lawmakers, they want Congress to authorize any military action there, and are urging the administration to allow a healthy debate on the proper U.S. role — if any — in the dangerous country. But their criticism, at this point, falls short of total condemnation. The anti-war...

    The Democratic National Committee is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though it denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event. Watch the promotional video, via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which is partnering with the DNC for the event. The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably:

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has issued an unlikely challenge to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio): Drop the tea party. Prominent tea-party-aligned lawmakers, including Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) and House Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), have come out against a short-term spending bill proposed by Boehner and other House GOP leaders. And Schumer, who oversees the messaging shop for Senate Democrats, says those lawmakers are standing in the way of a long-term bipartisan compromise on the budget. “These Republicans’ decision to abandon the three-week proposal negotiated by their own party’s leadership suggests that tea party...

    A surprising internal poll is casting a spotlight on a previously ignored congressional race in Oregon that may foretell a November bloodbath for Democrats even worse than anyone has imagined. Two years ago, 12-term incumbent Democratic Rep. Peter DeFazio cruised to victory in Oregon's 4th District with 82 percent of the vote. But a survey by Wilson Research Strategies for the conservative group Concerned Taxpayers of America has the Democrat up by only 6 points, 48 to 42, over Republican nominee Art Robinson. The Washington insider publication The Hill opines: "If Robinson, a first-time candidate, is even within 10 points...

    It's tough to raise money for an upstart congressional campaign and particularly tough to do so in a down economy, say some of the nine challengers in Maryland's 2nd District race. Their campaign finance reports bear that out: Of the nine, only two reported any income with the Federal Election Commission as of June 30, the most recent filing deadline. "There's the economic situation now, and people with less disposable income, and expenses they're facing," said Robert Imhoff, who volunteers on Democratic challenger Raymond Atkins' campaign. While the challengers may be struggling, it's a different story for incumbent Rep. C.A....

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is struggling to secure enough Democratic votes for approval, thus the effort to attract former foes.

The survey, which was conducted by Global Strategy Group, showed Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell (R) at 41 percent to former state Sen. Ethan Berkowitz's (D) 40 percent -- a statistical dead heat. Democrats held the Alaska governorship from 1994 until 2002 as Gov. Tony Knowles (D) benefited from a fractured Republican party and serious independent candidates. As for those who argued that Palin decided to leave...

    Senator Barack Obama has launched a full broadside against a best-selling book that attacks him as a Muslim-educated radical Leftist filled with "black rage". In a 41-page document entitled "Unfit for Publication", the Obama campaign rebuts Jerome Corsi's Obama Nation (a play on "abomination") almost point by point. Its faux book cover carries quotations from Time magazine branding the book, which has shot to the top of the New York Times best-seller list, as "trash" and "poisonous crap". The title of the Obama rebuttal is an allusion to Unfit for Command, the book co-written by Corsi that damaged the 2004...

The defendants, who were paid employees and supervisors of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, concocted the scheme as an easy way to get paid, not as an attempt to influence the outcome of elections, King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg said. "This was an act of vandalism upon the voter rolls of King County," Satterberg said. In addition to filing criminal charges, Satterberg said state and local officials had signed a five-year agreement with...

    Hardly a day passes without some story mentioning the polarized atmosphere in Washington and the growing partisan rancor. Democrats ascribe it to the “politics of personal destruction” and a “climate of hate” engendered by Republicans. There is no doubt that the partisan climate in Washington has become more polarized, but the Democrats' characterization of it is yet another partisan attack. Between 1933 and 1995, Democrats controlled the House of Representatives for 58 of those 62 years, ceding power to the Republicans only twice: in 1947-1948 and again in 1953-1954. From 1955 to 1995, their power was unbroken for forty straight...

At a recent public lecture I was buttonholed by a Michael Moore–wannabe filmmaker who breathlessly explained that 9/11 was orchestrated by Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and the Central Intelligence Agency as part of their plan for global domination and a New World Order. That goal was to be financed by G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, Drugs) and launched by a Pearl Harbor–like attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, thereby...

The CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll released Thursday indicates the members who chose to reply to the survey also overwhelmingly believe the party should draw clear distinctions between itself and the GOP and should work to defeat the Republican agenda over the Bush administration's final four years.

Today, some bishops are excommunicating elected officials for not voting their baptismal beliefs. Superficially, the politicians may seem right and the bishops may seem wrong, but the reality is the opposite is true. Jesus called us to the vocation of being light to the world and salt of the earth. Indeed, he made it clear that we are useless if we do not heed his words....

The four-term Massachusetts senator also was favored in the late-poll closing states of California, New York, Minnesota and Rhode Island. The freshman senator from North Carolina struggled even in his lone...
