    Apparently, in the City of Brotherly Love, geometry teachers easily confuse this… With this:Racism has again raised its ugly head in this presidential election and it has filtered all the way down to the classroom level where, in Philadelphia, a high school student was threatened with assault by her geometry teacher last Friday for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, last Friday was dress-down day for students at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond. One female student decided that she would show her support for Republican presidential candidate a Mitt Romney by wearing a Romney...

    Climate change campaigner Al Gore denied Australian firestorm footage AN Australian filmmaker refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore - to use in Mr Gore's climate presentations - because the event was unrelated to climate change. Chris Tangey from Alice Springs Film and Television recorded the phenomenon on Curtin Springs Station, 360km southwest of Alice Springs, while scouting locations for a film. The footage has been an international sensation, reported widely in global media. In an email exchange with Mr Gore's office, Mr Tangey said using the footage in a climate-change framework would be...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) contends that Republicans are “poisoning the debate” and “suffocating the issues under a barrage of facts and statistics.” “All we are hearing from them is negativity,” Pelosi complained. “They say the economy is faltering, too many people are unemployed, taxes are too high, foreign policy is a shambles—just one unpleasant fact after another. This doesn’t lift up the country. It doesn’t boost morale.” The Congresswoman contrasted the GOP’s negativity with the Democrats’ message of “hope and change.” “Everyday, the President is out there trying to take people’s minds off their troubles,” she said. “He...

"It goes without saying that there is definitely media bias," Ryan said on Fox News.

    President Barack Obama made a major gaffe when he recently said that we are owned, or "belong to", government. In the United States the government is supposed to "belong to" the people instead of the other way around as he suggests. We the people are supposed to own the government and tell it what to do. Obama and other elitists believe that government exists to control our personal lives and even tell us how much we can eat or drink. Some government controls are necessary to prevent people from harming others. Government needs to restrict sale of some substances that...

Mother Jones--the left-wing outlet that published the incomplete "47 percent" video of Romney--was reporting on Soros's reasons for donating $1 million to the Paul Begala / Bill Burton run Priorities USA Action PAC on Sep. 27. Priorities USA Action is the same super PAC that ran the now-infamous "Soptic Ad" in which a man falsely linked Romney to his wife's death from cancer years after Romney left Bain Capital to run the Olympics.

The men wouldn’t be enticed and the women wouldn’t be raped.” “It’s also a matter of respect to show sensitivity for others’ religious beliefs,” Duckworth added. “According to the Quran, Muslims are required...

When President Obama took the oath of office, he swore to uphold the Constitution and see that the laws of the United States were faithfully executed. He lied, and that lie was exposed in the administration's weekly document dump last Friday. It included a memo from the Department of Labor telling defense contractors not to obey the law and that, if they don't, U.S. taxpayers will foot their legal bills...

They will work double time to keep conservatives from the polls on November 6th. With the media as a willing and devoted support team they may just pull it off. If you add to the mix just a little voter fraud it could be a slam-dunk. We can’t let this happen. The next question or challenge for the Democrats is how do they legally keep opponents from the polls? Again, it’s simple. They...

    HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania - One of the toughest of a new wave of U.S. state laws requiring voters to show photo identification to cast ballots was put on hold Tuesday, as a judge postponed Pennsylvania's controversial voter ID law in a decision that could help President Barack Obama in a key battleground state. Pennsylvania's 6-month-old law has sparked a divisive debate over voting rights ahead of the presidential election. About a dozen primarily Republican-controlled states have toughened voter ID laws since the 2008 presidential election. But states with the toughest rules going into effect including Kansas and Tennessee aren't battleground states,...

The number is sure to be touted as a great success, even though the annualized rate of sale is still well below initial sales goals for the vehicle and no where near what conventionally-powered, mainstream cars sell. What is sure to be less publicized by the media is that the majority of the Volt "sales" were heavily subsidized leases that are costing taxpayers millions of dollars. GM spokesman, Jim Cain, told me that a full two thirds of Volt sales were leases. Backing out leases and fleet sales, about...

    The housing market may indeed be recovering, as many experts suggest, but investors are still struggling to understand what, if any, taxes they'll owe upon selling their homes. At issue is how the new "Medicare tax" will apply to real-estate transactions. Passed in 2010 to help fund the health-care overhaul, this 3.8% surtax kicks in next year on many forms of investment income—including some interest, dividends, rents and capital gains. While its effect on home sales won't be as far-reaching as many fear, the Medicare tax could pack a punch for certain investors. It is not a sales tax. And...

Since 2009, the middle 20% of American households saw their average incomes drop 4%. In 2011 alone, they fell 1.7%. The poorest 20% have fared even worse under Obama, Census data show. Their incomes have dropped more than 7% since 2009, and are now lower than they've been at any time since 1985, after adjusting for inflation.

    Judge Robert Simpson has effectively decided to block part of the law. Following his ruling, voters will still be asked for a valid voter ID at the poll. But if they don’t have it, they will still be able to cast their vote in the usual manner. The judge suspended the portion of the law that would have required voters without valid ID to cast what is called a “provisional” ballot, which would not be counted unless the voter could produce a valid photo ID within six days after the election. Judge Simpson says he viewed the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s...

So, the corrupt vintage media in Barack Obama’s Ministry of Truth (Minitrue for short) pushes a narrative that there’s more widespread support for him in 2012 than there was in 2008; this is, of course, required if the polls that Minitrue expects you to believe without question could possibly be accurate since in the polls that show Obama leading he’s snagging a bigger share of the vote in swing states than he did in 2008. That’s...

    To counter the gloom and doom spread by the corrupt, vintage media (which has definitely become a Ministry of Truth pumping out nonstop Democrat propaganda) let’s today examine who out there is really voting for Barack Obama in 2012. From where I sit, things shake out like this: Those Voting for Obama No Matter What: * Blacks — who will vote out of race-pride like they did in 2008. Black voters are the most racist in the country, supporting Obama with 95% of their numbers. Once again, blacks will prove that the job a person does in office is not...
  • Warning Letter to 60,000 Pastors: We’re Watching What You Preach

    Americans United for Separation of Church and State evidently sent copies of this letter to 60,000 pastors recently. It’s important to remember that Americans United is not an official agency of any governmental entity. This letter has no force of law and is just their opinion. Our local AU affiliate here in Oklahoma has sent similar letters to pastors in my House district in the past. The pastors I talked to about it tell me they threw it in the trash.
  • Obama administration held dozens of meetings on food stamps with Mexican officials

    The Obama administration met with Mexican officials and held other events to discuss enrollment in food stamps and similar programs roughly 30 times since President Obama took office, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack revealed in a recent letter to Congress. They were among 151 documented meetings and events held since 2004, when the United States and Mexico first started partnering on food-stamp awareness. That partnership, though, has raised alarm with Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is concerned the collaboration amounts to a vehicle for the USDA to pressure people onto the food-stamp rolls -- in this case, noncitizen immigrants from Mexico....

    Imagine a Republican president was in the White House and the White House Military Network was hacked by the Chinese. Oh the Hew and the Cry of the Mainstream Media would be deafening. But because it's a Democrat - nary a peep. Imagine a Republican president when the countries credit rating was downgraded again during his term. The media would call for his immediate resignation. But because it's a Democrat, it's buried on the back pages if it is mentioned at all. Imagine a Republican president being caught covering up for Al Queda's murder of the Libyan Ambassador. And that...

    I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy or not. You know, when I first started in politics – and for a long time before that – everyone on both sides, Democrats and Republicans, despised the press commonly, because they were SOBs to everybody. Which is exactly what they should be. They were unrelenting. Whatever the biases were, they were essentially equal-opportunity people. That changed in 1980. There are a lot of reasons...

    Dear Bishop, I went to confession over the weekend. One of the things I confessed is my hubris and pride in believing I know better than my bishop how to form the consciences of his flock. I admit to being passionate about my work and I try to do so in the spirt of St Ignatius who is quoted by some to have said, "work as if everything depended on you, pray as if everything depended on God." I've also found that quote reversed so I admit to not knowing which is accurate. I would have to describe my own...

    1.) Democrats have hired thousands of lawyers and positioned them in voter districts, ready to file suits. 2.) Democrats will work with groups like ACORN, registering non-citizens and convicted felons and encourage them to vote multiple times. They will watch for recent deaths in local obituaries and then vote again using the dead voter’s name. 3.) Democrat leftist pollsters over-sample Democrats to show Obama is way ahead of Romney in local polls. They use flawed methodology from past elections. 4.) Democrats file multiple suits against states that are trying to require proof of voter identification to prove voter citizenship and...
