    Monday marked the beginning of the Democratic National Convention, where Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats will try to convince the country that they are the party of the future. To combat their lies, here is a list of seven things they donÂ’t want you to realize about their history from my latest book, HillaryÂ’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.1. The Founder of the Democratic Party was a Racist Land StealerAndrew Jackson didnÂ’t really go around the law; he made the law. He was a law unto himself. ThatÂ’s because he had the troops and the guns...

    It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That's outrageous!” **snip**For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama's amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I'll bypass everyone and make it happen. **snip** As with every other extremely arrogant action by Obama, from blatantly lying about ObamaCare to releasing the Taliban five, while everyone expresses disbelief, outrage, and concern, nothing happens. The same is the case concerning the disaster happening at our border. Despite bipartisan outrage, the tsunami of illegals continues. Then there is the absurd lie from...

    Give the liberals credit, they know their voters are morons and they never make the mistake of treating them as anything else. Democrat elected officials know they don’t ever really have to make sense when they address their half-witted supporters. They only have to say something or do something, anything, and the media will praise them for their “honesty and courage.” Nobody ever questions what is “courageous” about admitting you have cheated on your income tax, stole campaign contributions, ran a male brothel or sold a political appointment; the media makes all of that go away for Democrats. When “the...

    Have you noticed, your Social Security check is now referred to as a "Federal Benefit Payment"? The government is now referring to our Social Security checks as a “Federal Benefit Payment.”This isn’t a benefit – its earned income! Not only did we all contribute to Social Security but our employers did too. It totaled 15% of our income before taxes. If you averaged $30K per year over your working life, that's close to $180,000 invested in Social Security. If you calculate the future value of your monthly investment in social security ($375/month, including both your and your employer’s contributions) at...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate has defeated a bill that would have conditioned foreign aid on a country's cooperation in investigating attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities. The bill also would have denied aid to Pakistan unless that country releases Dr. Shakil Afridi. Pakistan arrested the doctor, who allegedly helped the United States track down Osama bin Laden by running a fake vaccination program for the CIA to collect DNA. The objective was to verify bin Laden's presence at the compound where the al-Qaida leader was later killed. Afridi was convicted of high treason and sentenced to 33 years in prison....

The law, signed by Governor Jan Brewer in May, is part of a national campaign against Planned Parenthood orchestrated by conservatives Republican lawmakers who oppose abortions. In the past two years, 13 states have taken steps to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, and the organization has filed lawsuits in six of them, including Arizona. Planned Parenthood says abortions account for only 3 percent of its services, which include cancer screening and...

In September, the campaigner-in-chief will travel to Charlotte for his party’s presidential nominating convention. For once, the incurable jetsetter may wish he had stayed home. Obama’s stage managers envision a triumphant, unifying coronation reminiscent of their 2008 DNC production in Denver. But the southern swing state is turning into a Democratic disaster zone. Start with the North Carolina Democratic Party. At the state party convention last week, Obama for America was AWOL. The glaring absence of high-level national Obama surrogates was noted “as odd,”...

Could the once-promising career of Jesse Jackson, Jr. be finished—at the hands of fellow Democrats, no less? Along with the Republican presidential primary, one of the biggest political stories of March 20 will certainly be the fate of the young Jackson, who faces a strong primary challenge from former Rep.

But merely taking it down wasn't enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.

The large-scale attempt at liberal unity, dubbed "One Nation," will try to revive themes that energized the progressive grass roots two years ago. In a repurposing of Barack Obama's former campaign slogan, organizers...

Christopher Dodd's presidential campaign with more than $103,000 during the 2008 election cycle.

    Congressional Democrats want the United States to tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to help bring down oil prices, U.S. Sen. Patty Murray said Saturday. Murray said during the Democrats' weekly radio address that with gasoline prices reaching new highs, it is time to use the emergency reserves and urge oil companies to drill on leased federal lands. We believe it's time for the oil companies to use that land and to make sure that it stays in America instead of shipping it to the highest bidder overseas, Murray said. Democrats also think it is time to tap into the...

It showed up, like Banquo's ghost, at the debate Wednesday night in Philadelphia, particularly when Hillary Clinton joined with ABC's George Stephanopoulos and Charlie Gibson to nip away at the edges of Barack Obama's patriotism. Between the questions about Obama's meager association with William Ayers, a former Weatherman, and the suspicions raised by his lack of a flag lapel pin, the likely nominee is slowly being turned into John Kerry.

    The New York Times “blog” takes note of the internecine warfare at the web’s chewy center of left-wing lunacy On Friday, it got to be too much for Alegre, a diarist on the flagship liberal blog DailyKos, who frequently writes in support of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. “I’ve put up with the abuse and anger because I’ve always believed in what our online community has tried to accomplish in this world,” Alegre wrote Friday evening. “No more.” Objecting to the tone of attacks against Mrs. Clinton and her supporters on the blog, the diarist called for a “writers strike.”
