    You’ve probably never heard of Brandon Darby. The former community organizer who saved American lives by undermining a left-wing terrorist plot at the 2008 Republican convention used to be a proud member of the radical left. He called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. He hated cops. He consorted with eco-terrorist tree-spikers, radical feminists and black nationalists. He was approached to rob an armored car and asked to commit arson to fight gentrification. He mouthed politically correct slogans about the Bush administration. Government didn’t care about people, and he thought the botched response to Katrina proved it. When he...
  • Nostradamus Writings Predict McCain Victory

    CAP NEWS - "Conventional wisdom picks Obama. Nostradamus, four and a half centuries ago, picked John McCain," said Dr. Hubert Evans, professor of Renaissance Studies at Yale University and author of the best-selling "Nostradamus: Prophesize This!" "Quatrain 78, Century X in particular seems to indicate that Obama had better not be measuring the White House windows for curtains quite yet, at least by my interpretation," said Dr. Evans. The quatrain to which Dr. Evans refers - Quatrain 78 - is located in the grouping of stanzas known as Century X. Originally published in 1555 in Nostradamus' still-popular Les Prophecies, Quatrain...

    Dr. Alveda King works with Father Frank Pavone (PFL) in the Gospel of Life Ministry. She personally supports and will vote for McCain-Palin.

She is author of the book: Sons of Thunder (ISBN-13 : 9781413411263). This book about her father (Dr. A. D.

    GOTV calls are a keystone of any successful campaign. Went to homebase today and made 598 calls. Still rockin’ with two phones and brought in three volunteers from my posse. One new volunteer is 75. He is one of the kindest, gentlest people you would ever have the pleasure to meet. He learned the phones and called 50 people. But in light of this new volunteer success, today I dedicate this post to “Cathy.” I called to speak with “Brian,” who wasn’t home yet. I asked my question and Cathy answered. Then, she said “Can I ask you something?” That...

    "I am very excited about the McCain-Palin ticket, simply because they support the values that mean the most to me," Ms. King said. "It is a plus to me that Sarah Palin is a woman because I've been elected to office as a wife and mother. I've been appointed to office as a woman and at the time I was a mother and became a grandmother." 

 Ms. King said her experience taught her she could both be a good mother and still serve the public. This is something she has in common with Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, McCain's running...

    Fans, who had paid about £50 a ticket, slow hand clapped and shouted they wanted their money back after the star's short 40-minute set. After the audience refused to leave, Silverman was forced to give a Q&A session as an encore after admitting she had no other material prepared. Unimpressed fans shouted "you're over-hyped Sarah" and "I've seen longer clips on YouTube", before the star told the audience to "go home" and the left the stage. Reviewers from comedy websites and national newspapers were also left underwhelmed by Silverman's set at the Hammersmith Apollo, which "fizzled out" by the end....

    Good grief. Lieberman: McCain draws the line at using Rev. Wright. "Wallace asked Lieberman if McCain would bring up Rev. Jeremiah Wright after condemning state Republican parties for running ads criticizing Obama for his relationship with the controversial figure." "Lieberman responded: “He [McCain] didn’t like that approach. Senator McCain feels that same way about bringing up Reverend Wright through his campaign. And that’s the kind of line drawing that I think John McCain is all about.” "Later on Fox News Sunday, Brit Hume said the McCain camp would be “out of their mind” to not bring up Obama’s relationship with...

    Nervous Nellies is an establishment on Deer Island, Maine, selling excellent jams and chutneys in a weird and wonderful garden featuring sculptures made of household junk and old car parts. It also pretty much describes the state of mind of the Democratic Party as it contemplates a presidential election it knows it ought to win but could lose. That mindset was not improved by the televised debate between Barack Obama and John McCain, at least if my personal Democratic focus group, consisting of three women, a business executive, a writer on culture and a think tank director, and one man,...

    Two years ago, I called for reform of this corruption at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Congress did nothing. The Administration did nothing. Senator Obama did nothing, and actually profited from this system of abuse and scandal. While Fannie and Freddie were working to keep Congress away from their house of cards, Senator Obama was taking their money. He got more, in fact, than any other member of Congress, except for the Democratic chairmen of the committee that oversees them. And while Fannie Mae was betraying the public trust, somehow its former CEO had managed to gain my opponent's trust...

    I've been thinking alot about this election season as of late. I've looked back at the ups and downs, the highs and lows of this whole festival we call the presidential elections. What a roller coaster ride it has been, and that ride has brought me to this thread and feeling the need to vent a bit. When this whole zoo kicked off, I was and to a large degree remain a full-throated supporter of Duncan Hunter. One can only imagine how energized the conservative cause would have been with a Hunter/Palin ticket if that had occurred. For whatever reason...
