    The Muslim conquest of America continues apace. And some unexpected places are being heavily colonized. Case in point: Wichita, Kansas. Wichita is a “preferred community” for “refugee resettlement,” which makes it an epicenter for invaders. (To see who the outside contractors are who rake in money as they facilitate this disaster, see here.) So let me give you a brief tour of Wichita, Kansas, in the heartland of America. As reported at World Net Daily: The Wichita school district…is now trying to cope with a new influx of immigrants from Central America and the Middle East. The new arrivals...

    A jihadist website posted a new threat by al Qaeda this week that promises to conduct shocking attacks on the United States and the West. The posting appeared on the Ansar al Mujahidin network Sunday and carried the headline, Map of al Qaeda and its future strikes. The message, in Arabic, asks: Where will the next strike by al Qaeda be? A translation was obtained by Inside the Ring. The answer for it, in short: The coming strikes by al Qaeda, with Gods Might, will be in the heart of the land of nonbelief, America, and in France, Denmark, other...

Costas quoted extensively from a column written by Fox News sportswriter Jason Whitlock, in which Whitlock concludes, without equivocation: What I believe is, if he [Belcher] didnt possess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today. Never mind the fact that their relationship was so troubled that the KC Chiefs team management was providing counseling to them. And never mind the fact that Belcher had...

"We chased all the candidates out of Kansas!" Santorum said Friday. Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have skipped the state to focus on Alabama and Mississippi, with their primaries on Tuesday. Santorum is expected to win the state even though Bob Dole, the former GOP presidential candidate from Kansas, endorsed Romney earlier this week.

    Markey wants Heartland climate documentsBy Andrew Restuccia - 02/24/12 12:36 PM ET Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) pressed the Heartland Institute Friday for original copies of internal strategy and budget documents that were obtained and released by a well-known climate researcher earlier this month. The documents include plans for developing a K-12 curriculum that raises questions about climate science, as well as plans for funding high-profile climate skeptics. The Heartland Institute, a free-market group that rejects mainstream climate science, has called one of the documents a fake, though the group has confirmed the K-12 curriculum plan.

Last week Gleick was the chair of the American Geophysical Union's Task Force on Scientific Ethics. Now he isn't. As New York Times blogger Andrew C.

    Peter H. Gleick, a water and climate analyst who has been studying aspects of global warming for more than two decades, in recent years became an aggressive critic of organizations and individuals casting doubt on the seriousness of greenhouse-driven climate change. He used blogs, congressional testimony, group letters and other means to make his case. Now, Gleick has admitted to an act that leaves his reputation in ruins and threatens to undercut the cause he spent so much time pursuing. His summary, just published on his blog at Huffington Post, speaks for itself. SNIP---- The Heartland Institute had already signaled...

    A Chicago-based free-market think tank has prepared a strategy to sway the recall debate in Wisconsin, including detailing "the shortcomings of public schools," according to leaked documents that appeared this week on the Internet. "Operation Angry Badger" purportedly describes a Heartland Institute proposal that would cost about $612,000 and focus on promoting Wisconsin Act 10, which curtailed collective bargaining for most public-sector workers. "The recall elections of 2012 amount to a referenda on collective bargaining reform at the state level, making them of national interest," the document says. "Successful recalls would be a major setback to the national effort to...

In the hours after the Heartland Documents (including at least one complete fake) were released, the commentators on the other side did not even ask (just as they uncritically accept any weak report in favour of their pet theory).They leapt to their defamatory conclusions in a smear-fest. At least one person out there has probably committed a criminal act. The rest are guilty of small brained unskeptical blind hatred, defamation,...

    If you asked people what the two key events in the 20th century were, most would likely point to World Wars I and II because they transformed civilization. However, can something like the debate over climate change be as equally transformative? James Delingpole, author of "Welcome to Obamaland: I've Seen Your Future And It Doesn't Work," spoke at the Heartland Institute's International Conference on Climate Change on May 17, and insisted he wasn't being hyperbolic when he likened the climate change debate to the two world wars.

Obama will spend two days hopscotching across to Illinois, Iowa and Missouri, after urging his young, multi-racial supporters to thwart what an aide termed a Republican-induced "nightmare" at mid-term elections in November. Democrats fear heavy losses in the polls, which could put their grip on Congress at risk, as opinion surveys show Obama still has lagging approval ratings nationwide, despite several recent big victories.

By a show of hands citizens of the tiny canton (state) of Appenzell Inner Rhodes voted overwhelmingly at their traditional open-air annual assembly to impose a 200 Swiss franc ($176) fine on violators. Only a scattering of people on Sunday opposed the ban on the back-to-nature activity that took off last autumn when naked hikers primarily Germans started showing up in eastern Switzerland.

Those sensibilities could be in for a shake-up as Barack Obama launches the Democrats' most aggressive drive for years for votes from the Rocky Mountain west. The strategy unrolling now across...

    Not long ago, while waiting to meet some friends for dinner, I dropped into a bookstore where I happened to glance through the political bestseller, What's the Matter With Kansas? -- a title borrowed from a once famous article by a once famous editor, William Allen White. I didn't buy the book, nor did I have enough time to read very much of it. But, then, who needs to read very much of any bestseller nowadays? Thanks to the thoughtful tendency of modern publishing houses to restrict themselves to publishing books that can be summed up in a single sentence,...

    PARIS, FRANCE--Notre Dame sits proudly in the middle of the River Seine, which winds its way through this ancient city. It is an impressive Cathedral, with its towering gothic arches and vaults, its captivating chapels, and its rich history. Although the French still celebrate July 14, when a rowdy mob of radicals freed some non-political prisoners from the Bastille, they are still sober about the excesses of the French Revolution. For one, they seem to realize that it was silly for those Revolutionaries to expel the Church from France and turn Notre Dame into the "Temple of Reason." Still, they...

    Worldnet Daily ^ | Jan 10, 2005
    I read this morning on Worldnet Daily a commentary that CBS News should move from NYC to one of the heartland states to where their people would be more "in touch" with the average "joe" instead of the Manhattan Liberals.

    It's time to state something that we've felt for a long time but have been too polite to say out loud: Liberals, progressives, and Democrats do not live in a country that stretches from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from Canada to Mexico. We live on a chain of islands. We are citizens of the Urban Archipelago, the United Cities of America. We live on islands of sanity, liberalism, and compassion--New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, St. Louis, Minneapolis, San Francisco, and on and on. And we live on islands in red states too--a fact obscured by that state-by-state map....

    The electoral map featuring red and blue states, illustrating Republican and Democratic victories, became even more red this year as Republicans claimed two formerly Democratic states New Mexico and Iowa while nearly scoring victories in other Democratic strongholds, such as Wisconsin. Democrats, by contrast, this year claimed only one state that the GOP had won in 2000: New Hampshire.

    Had an neat montage of Joe's top election predictions of the year and then a clip right after each of how they came true, with rock song singing "I Told You So" playing in the background! LOL Pat joked that if we had been watching Scarborough Country this past year we could have gone to bed early. "We people in Flyover Space watch the liberal mainstream media scramble frantically every election trying to explain why we conservatives won't win, and last night they fell flat on their face." "Pat, after the third debate, when the mainstream media went on and...
  • Why isn't Kerry way ahead? Most liberals think those stupid heartland voters just don't get it

    Why isn't Kerry way ahead? Most liberals think those stupid heartland voters just don't get it By VIN SUPRYNOWICZ REVIEW-JOURNAL Sunday, October 24, 2004 I was reminded why I usually don't bother with the canned PBS "Washington Week" program when I accidentally tuned it in last Sunday. (OK, I found it shamefully riveting -- like slowing down to inspect the carnage of a traffic accident.) In an attempt to assemble an even-handed panel to discuss how George Bush and John Kerry did in the debates, host Gwen Ifill and her tax-funded PBS producers assembled four folks, one each from The...

    George W. Bush ^ | September 7, 2004
    CORUNNA, MI Sam Burwell, third generation UAW member and autoworker, Local 362, today issued the following statement: "President Bush has presented a clear agenda for a more hopeful America and a more prosperous economy, but John Kerry has responded with nothing but cynicism and false attacks. John Kerry's plans for higher taxes, increased regulation and more government spending would devastate Michigan's economy. Kerry's proposal for higher CAFE standards would kill 450,000 jobs and has been criticized by the UAW for its harmful impact on the American auto industry. Michiganders aren't going to trust a candidate who cares more about...
