    Hillary regrets saying she was 'dead broke'; now says she feels blessed by success. Democrat presidential candidate wannabe Hillary Clinton stumbled at the opening of her recent disastrous book tour by saying she and her husband Bill Clinton were “dead broke” upon leaving the White House in 2000. She now refuses to put an exact number on her worth and fudged about her wealth that has been pegged at about $80 Million...

    Shortly before the market crash in 2008, when oil prices were at all-time highs, Harry Reid, Democrat Senate Majority Leader, sold his investments in the energy industry-- according to his public filings-- and bought the healthcare industry instead. Thanks to the ensuing banking panic caused by skyrocketing oil prices and their subsequent crash, Barack Obama was elected president of the United States. Obama, history now tells us, made one of his first tasks to enrich Wall Street and healthcare companies through the fundamental transformation of healthcare into a government owned subsidiary. And now you know, in a thumbnail sketch,...

    Family Research Council President and former Louisiana House member Tony Perkins endorsed Rob Maness in the Louisiana's U.S. Senate race Monday (July 28), potentially boosting the candidate's credentials among social conservatives. Maness, a Republican, is running against U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., and U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge, in the state's high profile Senate race this fall. A Tea Party favorite, Maness has tried to position himself as the most conservative candidate on the Nov. 4 ballot. Most people consider Cassidy to be the Republicans' frontrunner in the election, but Perkins, a former Louisiana House member, has not been...

    Outgoing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor received a standing ovation from most of his fellow Republicans on Tuesday at a closed-door meeting, where a highlight film was played to mark some of his most memorable moments. "Thank you," said Speaker John Boehner, in an emotional send-off to his top lieutenant, who officially steps down from his top-level post at midnight Thursday to make way for Rep. Kevin McCarthy as the new majority leader. "He was confident, as I am, that Eric has great things left to do in the future," said Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., of Boehner's remarks. Cantor, 51,...

    The shooting down of MH17 in Ukraine’s civil war is a terrible event. However, the American media and government grossly misrepresent the USA’s role in creating the current situation, and coverage of Ukraine does credit to ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Reporting is dominated by the usual suspects from the Brookings Institution, etc. spouting jingoistic nonsense. Yes, there is significant history there, including a murky, amateurish, attempt to poison former President Victor Yushchenko with TCDD (a dioxin) in 2004 by unidentified parties. This sort of thing is a sign of the overall situation. Let’s start with how all US media refer to...

    NASHVILLE — On the first day of July, Sen. Lamar Alexander delivered a moving eulogy at the funeral of his political mentor, Howard H. Baker Jr., the former Senate majority leader and godfather of the Tennessee Republican Party. Baker, he said, had “more influence on my life than anyone outside my own family.” Like Baker, Alexander (R-Tenn.) has had an exemplary career in public service. He was elected to two terms as governor of Tennessee and later served as president of the University of Tennessee and U.S. education secretary. Twice he sought his party’s nomination for president, though, like Baker,...

We have no future plans,” Mr. Beohner said. “Listen, it’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House.”

Early voting will be done on Mondays to Fridays from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM with no weekend hours. There were divisions between both sides for and against the bill earlier this year. Proponents of the bill say it would create a more standardized process for early voting while opponents say it...

  • 10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed

    07/29/2014 8:05:36 AM PDT · by NKP_Vet · 34 replies
    1. It Is Not Marriage Calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and wellbeing of the spouses. The promoters of same-sex “marriage” propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage. It also denies the specific primary purpose of marriage: the perpetuation of the human race and...

    On Monday, illegal immigrants openly protested in front of the White House--and demanded more grants of temporary amnesty--without any consequences or fear of being deported. According to a Fox News report, "Illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about" deportation because Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) merely "focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and--in some cases--those caught in the act of crossing the border." ICE reportedly "prioritizes deportation for felons, repeat offenders, gang members and others with a serious criminal record" and "largely gives a pass" to other illegal immigrants. “Unless the individuals meet...

Migrant workers must leave the country when their visas expire, and according to law since 2011, South Korean employers have been obliged to pay their severance before their departure. Government officials claim that the revised law will prevent more illegal migrant workers from staying in the country. “We’ve found that a certain portion of registered workers did not leave the country even after they were paid their severance pay,” an official said. “They had no choice but to become the target of law enforcement authorities as...

The three-judge panel on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which includes North Carolina, declared that Virginia’s laws placed an unconstitutional limit on the right to marry. N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper thinks Monday’s decision will undo North Carolina’s ban on same-sex marriages, and he has no plans to intervene. Cooper said that it now would be “futile” to continue defending North Carolina’s ban against challenges from within the state. Four cases...

An independent poll in January found Carr down by 40 points. But with Carr getting somewhat of a boost from endorsements by radio host Laura Ingraham and former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, an independent outside...

The storms began Friday in Sonora, Mexico, and resumed Saturday night until Sunday morning, when debris from the Mexican side of the border traveled through a wash and piled up against the border fence. The fence, just west of the Nogales-Mariposa Port of Entry near Interstate 19, stood between 18 and 26 feet high and extended at least 7 feet underground. Border agents were alerted not long after the wall fell. "Resources have...

    Once again Israel is being forced to defend itself from the terrorists who run Gaza. Once again Israel has had to drop bombs and send tanks and ground troops into Gaza to blow up tunnels and destroy the missile sites Hamas has been using to rain hundreds of rockets down on Israel’s farms and cities. And once again the Jews of Hollywood are silent. Where are Spielberg, Streisand and David Geffen? Why haven’t these famous liberal consciences of Hollywood stood up to show their support for Israel against the terroristic attacks of Hamas? The producers, directors, actors and studio moguls...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on Monday called on members of the House and Senate to vote down any border supplemental bill that doesn’t include language blocking President Barack Obama from extending an amnesty and work permit program for millions of illegal immigrants. “I’m calling on all members of Congress today to stand up to these lawless actions and sponsor legislate that will block them,” Sessions said on the Senate floor Monday. “I’m calling on all members of Congress today to oppose any border supplemental that does not include such language.”

    Possible new View co-host S.E. Cupp got a tryout on Monday for the token conservative slot on the morning program. Wasting no time, the conservative commentator got in a fight with Whoopi Goldberg over the New York Times's endorsement of federally legalized marijuana. After Goldberg described herself as "very, very, very happy" with the Times, Cupp shot back, "Luckily, it is not up to the New York Times, a New York City liberal paper, to decide what everyone around the country does."

    Wish I could take credit for that headline but it’s Aaron Gardner’s. Here’s a nice scoop for Eliana Johnson, who somehow got hold of an early memo prepared by Michelle Nunn’s Senate campaign in Georgia after they stupidly posted it online briefly last winter. Of the many gems within, my second-favorite is the one emphasizing “rural” photo ops to show Georgians that Nunn is one of them. She’s a creature of the Beltway since birth, having grown up in Maryland while her dad Sam served in the Senate, but it’s important when trying to inherit a Senate seat as part...

    Via White House website: As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions...

    Another red line crossed? As AP reports, Obama administration officials were fuming Monday over a torrent of Israeli criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry's latest bid to secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas. Israeli media commentators have leveled almost nonstop criticism at Kerry in recent days over his attempts to bring Qatar and Turkey — two countries viewed by Israel as strong Hamas supporters — into the cease-fire negotiations - "U.S. Secretary of State of State John Kerry ruined everything." The White House is not happy - in unusually harsh language, officials said the criticism of Kerry could...
