    The attacks have begun. The Republican establishment in the U.S.A. has now actually started the shooting war in the 2014 primary elections they have been threatening against conservative candidates for Congress. “Hopefully we’ll go into eight to 10 races and beat the snot out of them,” said former Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio. His new political group, Defending Main Street, plans to raise $8 million to defeat tea-party candidates and elect moderate Republicans instead. “We’re going to be very aggressive and we’re going to get in their faces.” LaTourette was a close ally of moderate Republican Speaker John Boehner in...

    ...Cardinal Timothy Dolan, reported to be in the running to replace Pope Benedict XVI as the head of the Roman Catholic Church, is usually described as a “conservative” because he has strongly criticized President Obama’s attacks on religious liberty and federal intrusions into church affairs. But Dolan is also the leader of the campaign to promote Marxist Dorothy Day for Sainthood. One report asks, “Could Timothy Dolan Become The First American Pope?” Dolan, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB,) is considered the voice of U.S. Catholicism. But Carol Byrne, author of "The Catholic Worker Movement (1933-1980):...

    No, not as in the fashion sense. . . . But rather as in the former Republican Delegate from Loudoun County, Virginia named Dick Black, a staunch backer of Second Amendment legislation long before it was politically cool to do so.

    George Mason University on Thursday canceled plans to have ``Fahrenheit 9/11'' director Michael Moore speak on campus five days before the presidential election. The decision came after a Republican state legislator wrote a letter to university President Alan G. Merten protesting the Fairfax school's plans to pay the filmmaker $35,000 to speak on Oct. 28. ``We just felt it wasn't the most appropriate use of (public) funds, so we decided the best thing to do was cancel,'' school spokesman Daniel Walsch said. George Mason didn't notify Moore before making the decision public, Walsch said. A message left seeking comment from...

    <p>What if the budget is ruled unconstitutional once the budget impasse ends? The Governor's deliberate mixing of taxes and appropriations in the same bill makes this a distinct possibility - one that we must avoid.</p> <p>The constitutionality of the budget bill is a pressing issue because, unlike any other legislation, there are substantial consequences if the budget is not enacted. Time in which to resolve the legal uncertainty is short: Local school divisions must know by May 1 the amount of funding the Commonwealth will provide for fiscal year 2005 in order to finalize contracts with teachers and other employees.</p>

    RICHMOND, Va. -- Virginia lawmakers are considering a proposal that would require painkillers be administered to fetuses before abortions are performed. Delegate Dick Black, a Republican from Loudoun County, Va., introduced the measure. The plan (House Bill 1315) will be considered by the House of Delegates' Courts of Justice Committee on Monday. The Senate takes up a similar measure on Thursday. "We must do everything possible to relieve the terror and suffering of children as they are aborted," said Black in a statement released to the media. Black's bill would apply to any abortion performed after the 12th week of...

    I knew politics were dirty but this is out of hand. A friend of mine was struck by a car last night. Also, to let you know, Dick Black is a very conservative Delegate for the 32nd district in Virginia. He's a fine example of humanity and a good friend. I've removed the participants names out of courtesy. Here is a copy of the email I received... FYI. Be careful out there. Text in []'s is mine. FWIW the person struck is about 6' tall and must weigh close to 300 pounds. -- Forwarded message from XXXXX@aol.com XXXX XXXXX and...
