  • Do Your Research HuffPo: Washington Had Three Copies of Don Quixote

    Unlike Glenn, the Huffington Post is evidently not a student of history — nor fond of research, for that matter. Rather than publish with journalistic integrity, HuffPo decided to throw caution to the wind and publish an unsubstantiated hit piecequestioning the authenticity of a book Glenn owns and has taken along on the campaign trail.The book in question is George Washington’s volume of Don Quixote. The hit piece, titled “Mount Vernon Says It Owns George Washington’s Copy Of Don Quixote, Not Glenn Beck,” was published yesterday. “The Huffington Post wrote a story, and it says,you know, Glenn Beck’s people...

    'Forensic scientists say they have found the tomb of Spain's much-loved giant of literature, Miguel de Cervantes, nearly 400 years after his death. They believe they have found the bones of Cervantes, his wife and others recorded as buried with him in Madrid's Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians. Separating and identifying his badly damaged bones from the other fragments will be difficult, researchers say. The Don Quixote author was buried in 1616 but his coffin was later lost. When the convent was rebuilt late in the 17th Century, his remains were moved into the new building and it has taken...

    Cape Wind, touted as Americas first offshore wind project, became one of Americas most high-profile and controversial wind-energy projects. Fourteen years in the making, estimated at $2.6 billion for 130 turbines, covering 25 square miles in Nantucket Sound off the coast of Massachusetts, the Cape Wind project has yet to install one turbinelet alone produce any electricity. Now, it may be dead in the water. On January 6, the two power companies, National Grid and Northeast Utilities, that had agreed to purchase most of the electricity Cape Wind was to generate, terminated their contracts with the developers due to missed...

    Sen. Ted Cruz confronted President Barack Obama over his health care law during a meeting at the White House Friday attended by dozens of GOP senators. Cruz told Obama that any deal to reopen the government must also provide relief for those negatively affected by Obamacare. In a long gaggle with reporters, Cruz did not use the word defund to describe his aspirations for changes to the health care law, but said he wants substantial changes. I told the president exactly the same thing I have told you here today: That we need to work together and fund the government...

    NEW YORK Recalling Dan Brown's bestselling novel "The Da Vinci Code," computer experts have discovered strange anomalies in the Obama birth record released by the White House. They include a different birth registration number that shows up in "hidden text," remnants of the short-form certificate apparently bleeding through the long-form and a "smiley face" in the registrar's stamp that does not show up on other recently issued Hawaii birth records. Curiously, in a simple process run by Optical Character Recognition software that reveals hidden text, the registration number 10611 turns up, instead of 10641, the number displayed on the...

Johnson announced his candidacy Thursday morning on the steps of the New Hampshire State House and plans to spend three days in the early-nominating state meeting with supporters and visiting local businesses.

    If you ever get a chance to rent this particular version of the Man of La Mancha from 1972 staring Peter OToole and Sophia Loren I strongly encourage you to do so. It is both breath taking and heart breaking. I think you will find this unlike any version of this you have ever seen. The filthy rag Don Quixote picks up at the beginning is a dirty dish rag that she (Aldonza) threw at him earlier. Don Quixote considers it beautiful like gossamer (a gauze or silk fabric of the very finest texture). Don Quixote refers to Aldonza (a...

    Congress sued to remove prez from White House 'Defendants had to ensure the Constitution is upheld' Posted: January 31, 2009 2009 WorldNetDaily A new lawsuit is challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, and this one targets Congress as a defendant for its "failure" to uphold the constitutional demand to make sure Obama qualified before approving the Electoral College vote that actually designated him as the occupant of the Oval Office. The new case raises many of the same arguments as dozens of other cases that have flooded into courtrooms around the nation since the November election. It is...

    Four hundred years ago, Miguel Cervantes described an archetypal delirious fruitcake who wanted to change the world by turning the clock back to the idealized Utopian times that never really existed. Imagine what Cervantes would write today about the futility of his satirical effort, if he were to learn that four centuries later, a whole movement would arise that emulated his loony character and elected one of their kind as the leader of the free world.

    Prudent Press Agency)--- A theorist is someone who holds and expounds a theory. Often the elements of the theory are expostulated on things that may never be known. Was there another shooter on the grassy knowle, where is Osama Bin Laden? Those trying to vet Obama even post inaugural are not trying to prove a theory, here is why. Most of those filing law suits to subpoena Obamas documents are lawyers, politicians and military people none who have ever been known to be conspiracy theorists on any subject. The attempt to put them in the same class with those who...

    The media has continued to hide and misreport the fact that 30 plus lawsuits are in the courts challenging Obama's eligibility to serve as President. These lawsuits have been trying to avert the greatest Constitutional crisis America has ever faced. The likelihood that Obama does not qualify as a "Natural Born Citizen" as is required under the Constitution is a very serious matter. There is no provision to allow Obama to remain in Office if he has in fact managed to defame/usurp the Office of the Presidency and our Constitution. In fact, every executive order, law, etc. that Obama signs...
