  • Trump Fever Has Broken: It's Over for the Donald

    It would appear Trump fever has broken. It would seem the down, dirty, and ugly attacks by Rubio particularly, but also Romney, Cruz and others have kicked in. I sense that Trump has become a figure of ridicule, and no politician survives that. Plus his latest flip flops, like on torture, have weakened him as a serious person, although that may not have been obvious at the time. I think the teflon has worn off. If true, Chris Christy gets the bad timing of the year award
  • Rhode Island Outraged Over “Holiday Tree”

    By Todd Starnes A Rhode Island lawmaker is calling Gov. Lincoln Chafee “Governor Grinch” after he defied lawmakers and decided that the state would have a “holiday tree” instead of a “Christmas tree.” The governor defended his decision by arguing that it is in keeping with the state’s founding in 1636 by religious dissident Roger Williams as a haven for tolerance – where government and religion were kept separate. Instead of arguing over the tree, the governor called on lawmakers to focus their energy on feeding the poor. “I would encourage all those engaged in this discussion – whatever their...

    We all know that in terms of seriously addressing America's debt issues, the recent deal to avert a government shutdown is all but insignificant. So, what is the conventional wisdom being created to define it? Obama Advisor David Plouffe: Budget Cuts Both 'Draconian' and 'Historic' Plouffe Lauds Bipartisanship NRO and others on the Right are praising Boehner as a terrific leader, saying he accomplished something great - when, in relative terms, he didn't come close. Meanwhile, the Democrats are busy casting it as historic, if draconian - and accomplished through bi-partisanship. So, where does that leave a hapless GOP currently led...

    (3rd LD) Gates says diplomatic engagement with N. Korea 'possible' By Kim Deok-hyun SEOUL, Jan. 14 (Yonhap) -- U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Friday diplomatic engagement with North Korea is "possible," but Pyongyang must first stop its "dangerous provocations and take concrete steps" to meet its international obligations. Gates made the remarks as he started talks in Seoul with South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin to discuss concerns over the increasingly belligerent North and ways to further strengthen their deterrence against the communist state. "With regard to next steps on North Korea, diplomatic engagement is possible, starting with direct...

    When the Mormon pioneers headed West under duress in 1847, they had reason to feel bitter at their treatment by the world's foremost liberal democracy. For years, Americans had chased, robbed, beaten and killed them. Joseph Smith, seeking redress for his people, earlier had gone to Washington, D.C. The towering statesmen of the day who received him acted like, well, Washington politicians. According to Smith, the legendary Henry Clay said, "You had better go to Oregon." The revered John C. Calhoun counseled, "It is a nice question, a critical question, but it will not do to agitate it." And the...

    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1). The question of the age of the earth has produced heated discussions on debate boards, classrooms, TV, radio, and in many churches, Christian colleges, and seminaries. The primary sides are: *Young earth proponents (biblical age of the earth and universe of about 6,000 years)1 *Old earth proponents (secular age of the earth of about 4.5 billion years and a universe about 14 billion years old)2 The difference is immense! Let’s give a little history of where these two basic calculations came from and which worldview is more reasonable...

    Speaking to an Irish-American audience this morning, John McCain used his strongest language of the general election campaign to grab again the mantle of comprehensive immigration reform. In Scranton, Pa., he vowed to push through a plan that offers a path to citizenship to illegal immigrants who pay fines and fulfill other requirements. "This nation is stronger for the infusion of fresh blood and vitality," McCain said.

The new findings will encourage conspiracy theorists In fresh tests of the Mannlicher-Carcano bolt-action weapon, supervised by the Italian army, it was found to be impossible for even an accomplished marksman to fire the shots quickly enough. The findings will fuel continuing theories that Oswald was...

    Early this summer, the New York Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church convened, representing 120,000 Methodists in the greater New York area. Based on its resolutions, the meeting sounded more like a rally than a church convention. The Methodists called for President Bush’s impeachment, commended divestment in firms doing business with Israel, and urged support for “progressive” Latin American regimes like Venezuala’s Hugo Chavez. And, oh yes, they demanded an expeditious U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. What does all that have to do with Christianity? Arguably, not much. But liberal Protestantism, which denies or minimizes the transcendent doctrines of...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    ROCHESTER, NY Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (D-Rochester) today unveiled a plan that she says will help stabalize gas prices in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. In the last couple of weeks gas prices have increased dramatically, but Slaughter says that doesn't necessarily have to happen. Slaughter has introduced the "Emergency Petroleum Allocation Act." It would temporarily cap the price of gas at 2-dollars 50-cents a gallon. It would also direct the Secretary of Energy to develop criteria for declaring the sort of national fuel emergency that would trigger future price controls. Slaughter says if her plan garners enough support there could...

    SALT LAKE CITY — The Summum religion has sued the city of Pleasant Grove for the right to display the other set of laws they say Moses brought down the mountain. The city has refused to allow the Salt Lake City-based religion to erect a monument enumerating the Seven Aphorisms, principles they say underlie creation and nature, with a public memorial that includes the Ten Commandments. Summum leaders believe these were initially passed only to a select few who could understand them, but that Moses also delivered a lower set of laws, the Ten Commandments, which were more widely distributed....

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Regardless of who you believe, Terri Schiavo's parents or her husband, WHY do we treat convicted murderers better than we are treating Terri? Dear concerned citizen, Imagine if you will, that convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal had a bad lawyer during his murder trial. Assume further that when the new lawyer took over the case, she found credible evidence not originally presented on Jamal's behalf, evidence which could cast reasonable doubt upon the guilty verdict. And then imagine that despite this newly uncovered evidence, one court after another obstinately refused to permit a new trial so that the new...

I believe that I should help my fellow citizens whenever I can. 3. I believe that I don’t have the right to tell you how to believe. I support other people's rights to free speech, choice, and beliefs. 4. I...

He replies, "We need to remind the women of Islam ceaselessly: Our enemies are the same as theirs; our victory will be theirs as well." Well, the neoconservative cause "of female emancipation in the Muslim world" was probably set back a bit by the photo shoot of Pfc. Lynndie England and the "Girls Gone Wild" of Abu Ghraib prison.

    <p>TOKYO -- When the first Japanese troops arrive in Iraq later this month, they will mark Japan's largest and most controversial military deployment since World War II.</p> <p>The deployment also highlights Japan's cautious move away from half a century of a defense-only military policy. Japan renounced military action after its 1945 defeat. A new constitution, largely written by U.S. occupation forces, forbade the country from going to war and from deploying military forces for other than defensive purposes. The country doesn't even officially have a military -- the "Self-Defense Forces" aren't referred to using words such as "army" or "navy."</p>
