Not Bette Midler. Sure, the Divine Miss M hits similar topics via Twitter, but she doesn't mind reaching back into history to smite the GOP from a different angle. This week, Midler revisited World War II with a tweet claiming the GOP wanted America to lose in its fight against the Axis powers. .@GOP treats Mr. Obama the way they treated FDR in WWII.

And there were many -- predicting he'd go safe there's a bold -- to this decision here's a here's my take on us. He said.

    Forget executive privilege, contempt of Congress, “fast and furious,” how many documents the government has produced and who said what to whom on which date. The Obama administration has almost certainly engaged in the most shockingly vile corruption scandal in the history of the country, not counting the results of Season Eight on “American Idol.” Administration officials intentionally put guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, so that when the guns taken from Mexican crime scenes turned out to be American guns, Democrats would have a reason to crack down on gun sellers in the United States. Democrats will...

    Ann Coulter seems to be continuing her flirtations with RINOism. First she defended Romneycare. Now she is taking on the Conservative Pundit-Fox News-Complex. Here is the latest heresy from Coulter, courtesy of Jeff Poor: “And just a more corporate problem is I think our party and particularly our movement, the conservative movement, does have more of a problem with con men and charlatans than the Democratic Party,” she said. “I mean, the incentives seem to be set up to allow people — as long as you have a band of a few million fanatical followers, you can make money....

    Even when I agree with Rick Santorum, listening to him argue the point almost makes me change my mind. I also wonder why he’s running for president, rather than governor, when the issues closest to his heart are family- oriented matters about which the federal government can, and should, do very little. It’s strange that Santorum doesn’t seem to understand the crucial state-federal divide bequeathed to us by the framers of our Constitution, inasmuch as it is precisely that difference that underlies his own point that states could ban contraception. Of course they can. States could outlaw purple hats or...

Newt is the lease conservative of all Candidates running. 2. Newt is unelectable because of his failed marriages. 3. The Freddy Mac non-issue. 4.

    Ann Coulter's criticism of Rick Santorum for being "more of a Catholic than a Conservative" makes me want to do even more to help people come to understand his positions. ...Coulter's comments help explain why Catholics like me consider ourselves to be 'reluctant Republicans." She was derisive of Rick Santorum's concern for the poor. She mocked his insistence upon the connection between moral, social and economic issues. She was condescending and dismissive of his integrated campaign message. ...Santorum understands that freedom is a good of the human person. Further that he sees that the market economy, as promising as it...

    ONLY ONE CANDIDATE IS RIGHT ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES December 28, 2011In the upcoming presidential election, two issues are more important than any others: repealing Obamacare and halting illegal immigration. If we fail at either one, the country will be changed permanently. Taxes can be raised and lowered. Regulations can be removed (though they rarely are). Attorneys general and Cabinet members can be fired. Laws can be repealed. Even Supreme Court justices eventually die. But capitulate on illegal immigration, and the entire country will have the electorate of California. There will be no turning back. Similarly, if...

This is great, except for two things: (1) We have to get heinous Democratic policies first; and (2) newcomers have short memories, sometimes no memories at all. The second point is the only possible explanation for why some conservatives seem to view Newt Gingrich as the anti-Establishment outsider who will shake up Washington. Newly active right-wingers would do well to spend a little more time quietly...

    Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “Red Eye” last night, conservative firebrand and frequent courter of controversy, Ann Coulter told the panel that if the choice for the Republican presidential nominee came down to Texas Rep. Ron Paul or former House Speaker Newt Gingrich she would prefer Paul. She stops short of suggesting that she would vote for Paul in a third party bid as conservative radio host Glenn Beck​ recently suggested, but Coulter has serious reservations (like most editorial board GOPers) about Gingrich’s big government conservatism. While Coulter curries much favor among the Tea Party Republican set, not all who...

    Like her or not, there can be no argument that Ann Coulter didn't predict the actions, tactics and results of the Occupy Wall Street movement in her book “Demonic.” In her very well written history of the real story of the insanity and mob-driven French Revolution, she could easily be describing the actions of the current OWS movement. The similarities between OWS and the Arab Spring movements to install radical Islamic theocracies are also well illustrated. The reality is that the OWS movement may grow much more violent as professional anarchists take over and drive us to armed conflict. Get...

    Stratfor's George Friedman is a realist on what it would really mean: Destroying Iran's nuclear capability does not involve a one-day raid, nor is Iran without the ability to retaliate. Its nuclear facilities are in a number of places and Iran has had years to harden those facilities. Destroying the facilities might take an extended air campaign and might even require the use of special operations units to verify battle damage and complete the mission. In addition, military action against Iran's naval forces would be needed to protect the oil routes through the Persian Gulf from small boat swarms and...

    There's been some confusion about this event next month called Homocon, sponsored by GOProud, which bills itself as a Republican and conservative "gay" group.

"GOProud represents gay conservatives and their allies," claims a mission statement on the group's website. "GOProud is committed to a traditional conservative agenda that emphasizes limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a confident foreign policy.

  • 'Stella' Author Divorces Husband Who Inspired Book

    There's been a real life, sudden plot twist for "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" author Terry McMillan. She's filed for divorce from the man who inspired the novel after learning that he's gay. McMillan, who is 53, said she's come to the revelation that her 30-year old husband only married her six years ago to get U.S. citizenship. They met at a Jamaican resort. McMillan filed for divorce in January, but news of the split didn't surface until this week, when it was first reported in a San Francisco Chronicle gossip column. Jonathan Plummer said McMillan has treated him...

    In a tale rich in lost love, closeted secrets and acrimonious divorce, it turns out that famed local writer Terry McMillan -- whose celebrated romance and subsequent marriage to a man 23 years her junior became the subject of her fictionized best-seller "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" -- actually got her groove back with a man who now says he's gay. The story is spilling out in made-for-Hollywood detail in Contra Costa County Superior Court, where McMillan has filed for divorce from her Jamaican- born husband of six years, Jonathan Plummer. McMillan, 53, said in court documents that the...

    In early November of 2004 I wrote about George W. Bush’s first post-reelection appointment – his selection of anti-abortion activist Dr. W. David Hager to head the FDA’s Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee. This was the same Dr. Hager who wrote that women suffering from PMS need only to turn to the bible for help. In his private practice he refused to prescribe birth control medication to unmarried women. As a Republican political activist Hager opposed the sale of birth control drugs he identified as abortifacients. In essence, by putting an avowed opponent of reproductive health in charge of reproductive...

    If there is one thing Democrats should have learned from Karl Rove during this year’s election, it is the value of relentlessly attacking — day in and day out — your opponent’s perceived strength. Well, from now until Congress is asked in January to vote on the next $80 billion the president wants for the war in Iraq, not a day should go by without Democrats shouting from the rooftops that the White House is shamefully betraying the very troops it so vociferously claims to be supporting. Last week, one brave soldier’s question opened the door on this scandalous subject....

    JERUSALEM, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- The bizarre story of Suha Arafat, wife of comatose Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, is one more example of how a movement which has combined bloody terrorism with brilliant public relations for so many years proves itself impossible to deal with.Suddenly, Suha literally holds in her hands the future of the Arab-Israeli conflict and hence of the Middle East and international politics more generally. For only she can pull the plug in the Paris hospital, which would end her husband's life and let the Palestinians choose a new leadership. But she's not pulling yet.She was born...

    Suha's dramatic appeal is seen as an attempt to settle accounts with all those who turned her life into hell over the past decade. By accusing Qurei and Abbas of seeking to bury her husband while he's alive, she in fact fired the first shot in the battle for succession. "I think Suha deliberately chose the time when the Palestinian public is awake to make her last resort cry," says Zakariya al Qaq, a political analyst. "She wanted to ensure that the Palestinian public is rallying behind her against the political leadership in Ramallah." Suha's remarks are seen as an...

    By Wafa Amr PARIS (Reuters) - Yasser Arafat's wife accused Palestinian leaders hoping to travel to France on Monday to visit her critically ill husband of plotting to "bury him alive," an apparent reference to taking him off life-support. Israeli media had reported the death of the 75-year-old president would be announced after Palestine Liberation Organization Secretary General Mahmoud Abbas, Prime Minister Ahmed Qurie and Foreign Minister Nabil Shaath arrived in Paris. "I appeal to you to be aware of the scope of the conspiracy," a screaming Suha Arafat said on the Arabic Al Jazeera satellite television station, monitored in...
