    Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and dozens of other prominent conservatives are expected to endorse Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for president, a move that aims to coalesce conservative support around one candidate, a National Review article claimed Tuesday. The article states that a coalition of as many as 50 influential conservative activists gathered on Dec. 7 at the Sheraton Hotel in Tysons Corner, Virginia for a meeting that was spearheaded by Perkins for the purpose of hashing out which candidate the conservative activists will unite their support behind. After a long day of discussion and debate, it took five...

    National Review's Tim Alberta has given us all a peek behind the veil of a much-rumored process in which a cabal of conservative leaders — with especially heavy representation from old-line Christian-right groups, and informally headed up by the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins — has worked to unify around a single Republican presidential candidates. Turns out the group — which in fact referred to itself as "the GROUP" — has been struggling to reach a self-imposed 75 percent supermajority threshold for agreement on a single candidate. Coincidentally or not, Ted Cruz finally achieved that threshold in a meeting during...

The May numbers show her beating CNNs taped programming (Bourdain, Rowe, etc.) and MSNBCs Rachel Maddow many nights by a 3-to-1 ratio or more. Its actually been that way for some time and Kellys dominance appears to only be getting stronger. All of that said, what this column will focus on is all the headlines/buzz the program is generating long after the 44-year-old Albany Law grad signs off at 10:00...

    Mike Huckabee doesnt have a lot of prominent defenders, and I am not volunteering for the job. Huckabee has always struck me as a right-wing populist-progressive. A deeply religious and by all accounts decent man, Huckabee nonetheless has a view of the state that would have jibed almost perfectly with such forgotten titans of the Progressive Era as Richard Ely, Josephus Daniels, and even William Jennings Bryan. Ely, a mentor to Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt and the founder of the Wisconsin school of progressivism, believed that God works through the state in carrying out His purposes more...

"I think as Christians we'll be held responsible for the policies adopted by this government because its us, said Perkins. "Is that saying the government has a responsibility to care for the poor? Thats not what scripture says....
