    Asked this week about his faltering efforts to advance the Middle East peace process, President Obama did something remarkable. In front of some 47 foreign leaders and hundreds of reporters from all over the world, President Obama said that “whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.” Whether we like it or not? Most Americans do like it. America’s military may be one of the greatest forces for good the world has ever seen, liberating countless millions from tyranny, slavery, and oppression over the last 234 years. As a dominant superpower, the United States has won...

    Do we conservatives REALLY want to end the government control of our health care? Just how serious are we in stopping this? I doubt we are motivated enough to damage the health care system in this manner, but if we were very dedicated to stopping this nationalization of our health care, we could make a huge statement to America. So much they would have to listen. This is very radical idea that I propose. I know I will be crucified for suggesting this. People will hate me, even though I have done so much for others throughout my life. If...

    I wondered how long it would take after Saudi money was insinuated into Rupert Murdoch's empire before anti-Semitism hit the Fox News airwaves in the form of tug-at-your-heart, pro-Arab, mini-hit pieces against the State of Israel. It didn't take long. Did anyone notice Shepard Smith's passionate rant against Israel on behalf of the Palestinian Arabs a few days ago? I always thought Smith was just a smarmy, jock-type teeny-bopper. But he obviously knows which side his bread is buttered on, and he is fully capable of getting all lathered up over something about which he is absolutely ignorant. Today on...

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails them. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince....

Here’s what Sarah Palin did today, and why it’s not only brilliant, but it’s the chief reason this woman will be our 45th President. She hit the Left back, in a subtle way that drives them crazy.

This beautiful story is rich with life lessons for members of all faiths. With hope and dedication nothing is impossible, and the Almighty never abandons those who seek the light. - Sarah Palin “Trace the universe back to...

Rachel Uchitel has publicly denied she had sexual relations with Tiger Woods, but we've learned she has said she did indeed have an affair with the golfer. And, we're told it was her -- not Jaimee Grubbs -- who caused an argument between Tiger and his wife, Elin Nordegren, that immediately preceded...

Let me break this down for you a total of 3556 cases in California since April, that is an average of 592 cases per month. Out of those cases 233 people have died from the virus.

The day before election day 2008, the McCain campaign filed a complaint in the Eastern District of Virginia to force Virginia to count military absentee ballots that came in after election day. McCain lost Virginia by more than enough votes, but the case went on with the Department of Justice replacing the McCain campaign.There were filings last month and will likely be a hearing this month.

    There is a troubling pattern of capriciousness that has emerged from our current government. No one can take for granted that our government will do as it says. The word of the US government used to be something that world leaders, companies, employees, and the citizens of this great land could bank on. The breadth of the current administration's instability is unprecedented. From CIA interrogators to the Eastern European missile shield, keeping up with the number of on-again-off-again promises requires a full time staff to keep count. The latest example of this destructive behavior has been among the amendments and...

The vote was 245-178, largely along party lines. Among the earmarks was one sponsored by Rep.

    Wall Street helped produce the global financial and economic crisis. Now, as the Obama administration prepares to unveil a revised bailout plan for the banking system, policy makers hope Wall Street can be part of the solution. Administration officials said the plan, to be announced Tuesday, was likely to depend in part on the willingness of private investors other than banks — like hedge funds, private equity funds and perhaps even insurance companies — to buy the contaminating assets that wiped out the capital of many banks.

Christianity made many Roman citizens into pacifists, making it more difficult to defend against the barbarian attackers.

Although some argue that Christianity may have provided some morals and values for a declining civilization and therefore may have actually prolonged the imperial era.

    FCC to go after Talk Radio Dear Talk Radio Hosts, guests and listeners: Even though they virtually dominate the media on television and in print, liberals are now poised to go after the top prize: talk radio. Despite the fact that there is no market for their radical ideas, they are building the case to use the FCC to censor free speech by resurrecting the Fairness Doctrine -- a blatant form of government control of ideas that could banish the conservative voice from the airwaves! Right now, a bill is being prevented from getting to the floor for a vote...

He was a commando with AF Special Operations, and aboard a small Iraqi aircraft on a special mission with three other US Commandos, and one Iraqi. Derek's son Logan, was only eight months old. At that time, we were introduced to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. HISTORY: Special Operations Warriors are referred...

    And the Android will lie down with the Lamb by JohnHuang2 It’s so wonderful Al Gore shattered the glass ceiling for Androids to win the Nobel Peace Prize! For a cool million-dollar prize, now the Middle East is filled with peace. Muslim fanatics no longer kill. Al-Qaeda now loves America. Iran adores Israel. The Turks are wild about the Kurds! (Even Democrats are now full of love for NASCAR, no longer thinking you catch hepatitis by watching cars racing.) If you look at the history of this award, Willy Brandt got the Nobel Peace Prize for raising awareness about...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The fate of what some scientists dub "the people's telescope" is again up in the air as NASA decides soon whether to squeeze in a last astronaut repair mission to extend the life of the Hubble Space Telescope. On Friday, NASA engineers will debate the safety of sending a fifth and final manned space shuttle flight to the 16-year-old telescope, probably in 2008. Soon afterward, NASA Administrator Michael Griffin will make the final call.
