  • One Year After the Fogel Family Murders, the Community Rebuilds

    It takes more than a murderer's knife to kill the Jewish spirit. One year after five members of the Fogel family were brutally stabbed to death, the residents of their small farming community in the West Bank dedicated a new religious school in their honor. Itamar, a quiet hilltop town surrounded by hostile Arab villages, has earned a tragic distinction as "the most wounded community." Since its founding in 1984, a series of terror attacks has killed twenty-two people (including nine children) in a town of just 200 families. Yet after each massacre, the people of Itamar rebuild and replant,...

    Gregory Scarpa Sr., the Colombo enforcer who did double-duty as an FBI informant, suggests that the mob was behind the 1971 hit on his boss Joe Colombo according to the Bureau's recently-released file on the Grim Reaper. Colombo was shot by Jerome Johnson, a black wannabe mobster, during the June 28, 1971 rally for the Italian American Civil Rights League which served as a public relations front for the mob boss. The investigation into the Colombo hit was little more than perfunctory, and law enforcement quickly concluded Johnson was a lone madman. However, Scarpa said that Johnson was not a...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) confidently predicted that the US Supreme Court will rule that the President’s health care law is Constitutional. “The proof is right there in the Constitution itself where it promises that the government will provide for the people’s rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness,” Pelosi said. “By making sure everyone buys health insurance the law is protecting their lives. By requiring that employers cover birth control costs the law is liberating people from the risks of unwanted pregnancies. And as for pursuit of happiness—isn’t that what those who need birth control are doing?”...

    Vice-President Joe Biden praised the killing of Osama bin-Laden, calling it “the most audacious plan of the past 500 years.” Asked about other possible contenders for “most audacious plan”–the D-Day invasion of Normandy during WWII or Washington’s Christmas Day attack on Hessian troops in 1776—Biden replied “no contest.” “The raid that killed bin-Laden was carried out without any casualties for our side,” Biden pointed out. “The same can’t be said for any other action taken by any other president. Let’s not forget that Allied Forces had 10,000 casualties on D-Day and 2500 men were killed. That’s a bit of a...

Using the voice we have come to recognize as a source of “truth justice and the American way” he tried to fool us into believing Detroit was “too tough to die” and all that Democrat wishful thinking. Clearly Dirty Harry didn’t do his homework because Detroit is sinking faster than the Titanic and Democrat fantasies can’t change that reality. The Democrat infected Motor City is more on course to become “Greece” than a new “grease monkey’s” paradise. All of the make believe about Detroit’s recovery will come to a crashing...

    Republican candidates for President, take heed: Do not waste time and energy campaigning to Hispanics or African Americans. Their minds are made up; and their candidate is Barack Hussein Obama: PERIOD. New information clearly indicates that neither of these voting blocs is interested in even helping themselves out of the hole they’re in, let alone help America regain our position as the world’s leading economic power. They are so invested in Obama that their own unemployment numbers mean nothing to them – “Blame everything on Bush – Obama’s the man!” Not long ago African Americans were told their unemployment had...

Though Gohmert maintains Republican big-wigs like John Boehner and Mitch McConnell really are committed to the defeat of Barack Hussein Obama, he stated in a January interview with Rush Limbaugh that Party elders believe the only way to accomplish it is “by being nice.” (1) That’s why Republicans were told to “handle [Nancy...

    An astounding transformation in the concept of truth has occurred the last few decades in America. No longer are statements or ideas accepted simply on their soundness or logical consistency. In fact, logic often has no impact upon an idea’s popularity. Increasingly, an idea needs official government backing before it is deemed “true.” This change bodes extreme danger for the future of our democracy. How exactly this change is occurring is a fascinating question. Without doubt, it’s happened while government has grown towards supreme authority while the church’s traditional role of defender of truth has withered away. Also, the demise...

Glenn contends that those seeking to dismantle the American way are “no longer progressives.” Instead, the left has successfully morphed into what it had always intended to be: Full-fledged Communists. “Progressives can say mission accomplished.

Even the people who voted for him in 2008 didn’t much care for him. He lacked the pizzazz needed to captivate a national electorate. Consequently, Barack Obama, an utterly unqualified, not-so-closeted Big Government socialist in the European tradition was able to trounce McCain. The reason primarily was that Obama was more likable. Almost no one could tell you what his positions really were or predict accurately the disaster he would bring with him in...

He called Reagan a "cheerleader for selfishness" and even went so far as to personally attack the Gipper as 'most ignorant man that has ever inhabited the White House'. Not one to be easily outwitted -but showing considerably more class and good humor- Reagan observed parallels between bloated blowhard O'Neill and the 1980's Pac-Man video game, both being  'a round thing that gobbles up money'. Yet despite the professional animosity, the...

Stalling for four years since Obama announced his candidacy in February of 2007, under mounting political pressures and legal challenges, the White House unveiled a...

    James "Whitey" Bulger may be a man of letters. When the FBI searched the fugitive mob boss's former home in South Boston in 1995 agents found a manuscript titled My Life in the Irish Mafia Wars, and when they raided his apartment in Santa Monica, CA last year found another autobiographical piece as reported by Shelley Murphy for The Boston Globe: "federal prosecutors revealed the existence of the two documents for the first time in their report detailing all of the evidence which may be used against Bulger and has been shared with his lawyers as required by law." No...
  • The "Hispanic vote bogeyman" threat is actually a Democrat problem, not ours

    It’s election time so that means Democrats rolls out one of its favorites weapons: the “Hispanic vote bogyman” threat. The script goes this way: The Democrat supporting Hispanics dictate a demand list to Republicans then watch them squirm and pander. To add some salsa to the threat they promise retaliation at the polls if Republicans dare to ignore them. This kind of knuckling under has never gone well for Republicans. Endless concessions and saying things like, “We’ll give your cousin amnesty. We’ll give your kids our kids’ college classroom seats – and throw in our jobs food stamps and ignore...

    Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) March 13, 2012 MormonVoices today called on Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum to condemn the anti-Mormon comments made by his supporter, and honorary Florida Chairman, Reverend O'Neal Dozier. The New York Daily News and multiple other media outlets have reported that Dozier proclaimed that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly referred to as the Mormon Church, is racist and said that the Church "is prejudiced against Blacks, Jews and the Native American Indians." He therefore demanded that Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney publicly "renounce his racist Mormon Religion." He claims that in...

    Can you imagine Margaret Thatcher making a special trip in '79 for photo ops with Jimmy Carter...  then not even willing to be seen with Reagan? You'd think British PM David Cameron would be cultivating ties with America's resurgent conservative movement on his trip to the US this week, rather than being such a willing tool for far-Left, anti-British loon Barack Obama... an unpopular failure who's political demise seems more imminent by the day. How is this doing a service for his claimed 'conservative' political principles, the American Right, or even the UK's national interest? Now Obama pumpers will be playing up how the GOP is just too wacked-out to get along...

    A Florida pastor is calling for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to publicly renounce his "racist Mormon religion." Rev. O'Neal Dozier, a supporter of fellow GOPer Rick Santorum, also insisted that the former governor of Massachusetts should bow out from the presidential race. The pastor explained his requests during a press conference on Sunday, citing several passages in the Book of Mormon that he says prove the religion is rife with racism. "The purpose of this request is to foster and maintain good race relations here in America," Dozier said in a press release. "The Mormon religion is prejudiced against...

    Be warned: This column probably will offend just about everyone. We start with news of offensive research at Cornell University. Researchers have challenged the assumption that most citizens can recognize the best political candidate when they see him. . . Is it any wonder that the candidate who will emerge as president will be no better than a pig in a poke?

    What is it about the pundits that they can’t seem to get that WE, the American People, have no problem with a “brokered” Convention for the GOP? Why are they so afraid of allowing this process? I just heard Dick Morris declare that we NEED a candidate, asking principled people to just “vote for Romney!” Not because he is the best person, but because he, Dick Morris, believes we need to short circuit the process, and, in the process, disenfranchise the very people we will need to vote for our eventual candidate. Way to get out the vote, Dick! We...

    President Obama begged voters to back his vision of an oil-free future for America. “There will come a day when we will wean ourselves from this fuel of the past,” Obama proclaimed. “Reliance on oil-based fuels has lulled us into lives of gluttony and waste. We have gotten soft because we drive when we should walk. We have gotten lazy because it’s easier to turn up the thermostat than to put on a sweater.” “There are environmentally-friendly ways for us to live,” the president continued. “I see a future when mighty vessels powered by the wind carry goods and people...

    Was Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report secretly in the tank for Barack Obama in the election of 2008? "Yes", says filmmaker, John Ziegler, who provides examples of Drudge's Obama bias in the statement below along with claims that the late Andrew Breitbart, who worked with Drudge on the Drudge Report in 2008, told Ziegler himself that Drudge was obviously favoring Obama by failing to report negative stories about Obama. Ziegler details three examples, including the Reverend Jeremiah Wright story, where Drudge buried or outright removed negative stories about Obama. This perhaps explains the previously untold story as to why...

    U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told a Senate Armed Services Committee that the Obama Administration’s decision on whether to engage in military action against Syria is not contingent on Congressional approval. “The United States is just one of many nations,” Panetta explained. “Even if our Constitution places the power to declare war with Congress this doesn’t override decisions made on a multinational basis. An agreement reached with other nations takes precedence over anything Congress may wish to do.” The secretary cited the precedent established by the Administration’s actions in Libya. “President Obama acted with the consent of key allies in...
