    The Charlotte Observer ^ | July 12, 2016 | Tim Funk and Rick Rothacker
    A pastor ousted by his megachurch in South Carolina over problems that included alcohol use has been a close friend of Elevation Church pastor Steven Furtick and has served on the board of overseers at the Charlotte church. As recently as 2014, Perry Noble – removed July 1 by the board at NewSpring Church in Anderson, S.C. – was described as the longest serving member of the Elevation board. Elevation officials did not respond Tuesday to requests for comment on whether he was still on the board. Elevation, started in 2006, is one of the fastest growing evangelical churches in...

    Although Ted Nugent has offered something he calls an apology for calling President Obama a “sub-human mongrel,” that doesn’t mean his career as political liability to Texas Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott is over. Aside from Nugent’s other unclaimed Nazi rhetoric baggage, The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur points out that the aging rocker’s documented past defending his right to keep and bare teenagers makes him a bad campaigner for a supposed “family values” candidate. Using clips from a 1998 VH1 documentary on Nugent, Uygur details the bizarre manifestation of the musician’s “addiction to girls"...

    A Republican hopeful for Texas governor drew harsh criticism for hitting the campaign trail Tuesday with Ted Nugent, the controversial rocker who recently described President Barack Obama as a "subhuman mongrel." Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott appeared at two campaign stops with the outspoken gun-loving musician-turned-commentator on the first day of early primary voting in the traditionally Republican state where he faces a surprisingly tough challenge by a rising-star Democrat.

    SALT LAKE CITY — A conservative activist charged with raping four women rubbed shoulders with some of Utah's most prominent Republican politicians and served as co-chairman of a 2007 fundraiser for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Many of them, including Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Gov. Gary Herbert and 4th Congressional District candidate Mia Love, have attended a barbecue Greg Peterson hosted what he called the Rocky Mountain Conservatives Conference at his lakeside cabin the past three years.

    Eidsmoe reportedly spoke at an Alabama Secession rally, Zielinski said. He covered topics touching on slavery and the Constitution. Eidsmoe’s speech in the rally claimed God ordained slavery, and Jefferson Davis was a much better President of the Confederate States than Abraham Lincoln ever was for the United States. “He’s a pseudo-intellectual racist who belongs to the League of the South and whose writings happen to pop up on neo-Nazi websites,” Zielinski said.

    Today, David Plouffe sent out an urgent message with an update on the fast brewing healthcare battle: We knew healthcare reform would face fierce opposition — and it’s begun. As we speak, the same people behind the notorious "swiftboat" ads of 2004 are already pumping millions of dollars into deceptive television ads. Their plan is simple: torpedo healthcare reform before it sees the light of day by scaring the public and distorting the President’s approach. We need the resources to take them head on with an urgent, grassroots campaign to pass real healthcare reform in 2009. When the swiftboaters flood...

    The Rev. John C. Hagee, whose anti-Catholic remarks created a controversy when Senator John McCain received his endorsement for the Republican presidential nomination with fanfare, has issued a letter expressing regret for “any comments that Catholics have found hurtful.” The letter was issued after weeks of conversations between Mr. Hagee and Roman Catholic Republicans about repairing the damage to Mr. McCain’s campaign and the alliance built over many years between conservative Catholics and evangelicals. Mr. McCain said Tuesday that he had not been involved in brokering the apology letter from Mr. Hagee, a megachurch pastor in San Antonio who broadcasts...

    RIYADH: As fighting between Hezbollah guerrillas and Israel enters 18th day, the people an media in the Arab world are full of praise for the gurilla force for standing up to the Israeli military might for such a long period. Despite concerns and suspicions of Arab governments about growing influence of Iran in the region, Hezbollah’s popularity with the masses is now at its peak. Having faced the Isareli military might for more than two straight weeks now, with little or no support from conservative Arab regimes, Hezbollah has proved that standing up to Israel military might and its most...

Somehow, the president's praise belies the record of the corrupt Dallas law firm Ms. Miers managed before being named by Gov. George W. Bush to the Texas Lottery Commission. While Miers was co-managing partner of Locke, Liddell & Sapp, the firm was involved in a $30...

    weegee note: Despite all claims to the contrary by the author, this is a hit piece on restauranteur/talk show host Edd Hendee. If the steak house is so old and unremarkable, why even cover it? If his politics are irrelevant (which they are) and not a factor in his critique, why get so venemous? What a *********. Note there was a considerable wait to get in.

    VIN SUPRYNOWICZ: Not exactly an air-tight case It's unfortunate -- but typical -- that Michael Moore begins his new semi-documentary film, "Fahrenheit 9/11," with a lie. The film instructs viewers that every legitimate media outlet that sent reporters to Florida after the 2000 election concluded Al Gore really won the popular vote there -- and thus the presidency. The truth is just the opposite. Every mainstream media outlet that went and looked -- including far-left East Coast papers that had endorsed Gore -- reluctantly concluded George W. Bush won the popular vote in Florida, no matter how you counted it....
