    WASHINGTON - The head of the Democratic Party scolded Sen. Orrin Hatch for alleging that President Barack Obama would use Mitt Romney's Mormonism against him in the White House race."That is just preposterous," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, told MSNBC on Wednesday. "That suggestion is utter nonsense."Hatch, during a campaign stop in northern Utah, raised the prospect that Obama's re-election campaign would play the religion card to harm Romney's chances of toppling the incumbent Democrat."You watch, they're going to throw the Mormon church at him like you can't believe," Politico quoted Hatch as saying at...

    Last month, FOX News reported that someone at Eric Holder’s Department of Justice has been leaking information to Congressional committees about the Obama Regime’s Mexican gunwalking enterprise Fast and Furious. ATF Investigation Reports (ROI’s) that reached the offices of Senator Charles Grassley and Congressman Darrell Issa revealed gun runners and drug dealers to be secretly in the employment of the FBI. And a Mexican illegal, already wanted on weapons charges, was shown to have been turned loose by a remarkably accommodating ATF agent. And now something new has been added to the mix. On March 28th, Senator Grassley wrote Kathryn...
  • Obama's top attorney tells the court, "Nevermind."

    When our president, a, ahem, constitutional scholar, berated the court for having the audacity to consider overturning an unconstitutional law, he implied justices should think twice before doing such an unprecedented thing. Of course, Barack Obama was revealing himself to be anything but a constitutional scholar. A mere appellate court judge got so miffed he ordered the Obama Administration to submit a three-page, single-spaced paper today explaining how judicial review is something the court has the authority to do. So, Eric Holder, who currently holds the position of Attorney General in the admnistration, submitted the letter. Here’s what Holder had...

    The “serious concerns” of U.S. Treasury officials involving a risky $535 million infusion for a fly by night solar panel firm were ignored as the deal was fast-tracked by the Obama Administration, according to a federal audit released this week. Bankrolled by Obama fundraiser George Kaiser, the now-defunct northern California company (Solyndra) got more than half a billion dollars from the U.S. government to promote green energy. Instead, it abruptly folded last fall, stiffing American taxpayers and laying off more than 1,000 workers. From the start, it was a controversial deal that was suspiciously rushed through for a politically-connected...

It was tried in the decades before the Great Depression. It didn’t work then. It was tried in the last decade. It didn’t work. You know, the idea you would keep on doing the same thing over and over again, even though it’s been proven not to work. That’s a sign of madness.”

    The Obama campaign is hoping to train an army of women at the DNC's national issues conference in Washington, D.C., later this month. The two-day convention will include remarks by President Obama and strategy meetings on American women, values and the 2012 election as well as economic security and strengthening the middle class. Confirmed training sessions include: "Talking to Your Neighbor: Persuading Women Voters," "Digital Organizing: Effective Social Media Strategies," "Talking about the President’s Accomplishments," and "Crafting Your Personal Narrative."

    Most lawyers trying a case abide by the maxim: Don’t piss off the judge. President Obama disregarded that when he lectured the Supreme Court not to overturn the health care law. Indirectly the President was challenging the entire judiciary and it struck a raw nerve with Judge Jerry Smith, of the 5th Circuit Appeals Court. Judge Smith had, less than two years earlier rejected, in a 2 to 1 decision, the Interior Department request to stay a lower court order lifting the offshore drilling moratorium (Hornbeck Offshore Services LLC v. Salazar) – thus requiring the moratorium lifted. In one of...

According to a report last month in The Toledo Blade, Willard & Kelsey Solar Group was lent $10 million by two state agencies even though the company showed little more than a half million dollars in revenue for 2009 – that being a grant from the Buckeye State – and a loss of $4.2 million.

For healthcare itself was never the real purpose of the massive, complex and overreaching law, as the following information should make clear.

Al Sharpton, known for his sometimes odd commentary and fiery rhetoric, was invited, some mainstream and well-known leaders were left off of the invitee list.

There’s plenty of precedent for voiding a law like Obamacare. The top justices have...

    The Obama administration wants Congress to grant it even broader authority and more funding to send U.S. troops on missions around the world dealing with everything from terror and narcotics to supporting national governments facing opposition and law enforcement operations, senior Defense Department officials told a Senate Armed Services Subcommittee. And lawmakers seemed happy to comply. According to the administration, the line between terrorism and crime is becoming increasingly blurry. And so, the Pentagon officials claimed, legislation is needed to further blur the line between national defense and law enforcement. More power should also be granted to allow U.S. troops...

    Some are aware that Barack Obama seems to be working to set up what is now just a shadow organization that may be likened to The People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs. That was the name of the public and secret police organization of the Soviet Union that directly executed the rule of power of the Soviets, including political repression, during the era of Joseph Stalin. Perhaps he plans to save this database for some time after a planned coup d'état. We have seen hints of this in his surreptitious call for good Marxist “Democrats” to actually –report- American citizens who...

    Xavier University, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, is one of the nation’s oldest Roman Catholic colleges. In addition to distinguishing itself through its robust history, Xavier is also making headlines over its new policies surrounding birth control coverage. As of July 1, the college will be cutting off contraceptive coverage for employees. Considering the fact that Xavier is a Catholic institution, the natural question is — why was the university covering birth control in the first place? The answer: It was apparently never meant to be embedded in the coverage — at least that’s what one student says. “That coverage never...

    In Washington this week, a rare drama is unfolding in the U.S. Supreme Court. The momentous question that is before the court is this: Shall we be Citizens or Subjects? The high court is considering a historic challenge by twenty-six states to the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare. Hundreds of people have stood in line, some of them overnight in the chill March air, to get inside. Our colleague, Ken Klukowski, was one of those fortunate few. We are relying on Ken’s reporting and also on the impressions of Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Ken Klukowski reports what...

    CHICAGO (AP) -- U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday that the Justice Department will respond "appropriately" to a federal appellate judge in Texas who demanded a letter recognizing federal courts' authority to strike down laws passed by Congress. Holder spoke a day after 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jerry Smith questioned President Barack Obama's remarks this week about an "unelected" court possibly striking down the president's health care overhaul. Smith, during oral arguments in a separate challenge to the health law, asked the Justice Department for a three-page, single-spaced letter affirming the federal court's authority. When asked...

    Fox News reporter Heather Childers posted some tweets asking her Twitter followers their thoughts on a couple articles related to Obama's eligibility. One article asked if Obama's campaign threatened to kill Bill and Hillary Clinton's daughter if they brought up Obama's eligibility during the 2008 campaign. The other article Childers tweeted was about the Alabama Supreme Court Justice that raised concerns about both of Obama's birth certificates which was headlined at this site then picked up by World Net Daily and then the Examiner. Needless to say that sent the Obama media thugs at Media Matters and Mediaite into a...

    As the 2012 election campaign approaches phase two – when the major-party candidates have been selected and begin to square off – there is an unmistakable lack of ideological and political unity within the Christian community. A new national survey by the Barna Group among likely voters indicates that there are substantial differences across a wide spectrum of Christian subgroups, with only a one segment unwavering in its commitment to defeat President Obama in November. In the first of those contests Barack Obama and Mitt Romney were of equal appeal to all voters, with Mr. Obama holding a 52% to...

    One of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring. That talent was displayed just this week when he was asked whether he thought the Supreme Court would uphold ObamaCare as constitutional or strike it down as unconstitutional. He replied: "I'm confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress." But how unprecedented would it actually be if the...
