    <p>BOSTON (AP) — Two legal scholars squared off in a public debate on Friday to settle whether Republican Ted Cruz is eligible to become president. Spoiler alert: They didn't settle it.</p> <p>But the debate at Harvard Law School underscored that conflicting interpretations of the U.S. Constitution can produce different answers. The question has been in the national spotlight since Republican rival Donald Trump suggested that Cruz, who was born in Canada to an American mother, isn't legally qualified to be president.</p>

    (Watch Video At Link) Hi. I'm Wayne Allyn Root for Personal Liberty(r). I'm reporting today on the greatest fraud in the history of world politics: the cover up by the mainstream media of Barack Obama's college records. But there is one ray of hope to report. The mainstream media just opened the door for all conservatives to demand that Obama release his Columbia University college records immediately. How nice of the mainstream media. Thank you! How did the Obama-loving frauds in the media manage to allow this to happen? They decided to try to ruin Ben Carson's candidacy. An articulate...

If some took actual lives with his deadly thrusts, the happier he was and the more he enjoyed being the Messiah of doom.

Thanks to a legal filing by Cindy Archer, former top aide to then Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker, we now have more information on how the first John Doe Probe was born.

This money, formerly handled by an American Legion Post, was ordered to be...

    Ya don’t say. He's retiring, so it's safe to speak ill of the Media Messiah. CBS’ Bob Schieffer says that perhaps reporters in the media “were not skeptical enough” of President Barack Obama as a presidential candidate in 2008, telling Fox News’ Howard Kurtz that the whole political world was struck by the sudden rise of the senator from Illinois. This isn’t some revelation that Schieffer just had. It’s certainly been kicking around in the heads of veteran media types since early ’09 when it became rather apparent that Barack Obama was more of a bumbler than the suave,...

But there is nothing mysterious to the athletically-inclined about marathon times, so it will be interesting to see how the public reacts to Ryan carving a huge hunk out of his best time for the 26.2-mile race.

Willke believes that trauma caused by violent rape causes a womans reproductive system to shut down. He presents this belief as fact in educational materials, including a book about abortion and a website called Willkes views and his...

    Mitt Romney has so far released only one year of tax returns (2010), plus an estimate for 2011. This stands in stark contrast to his father, Michigan Governor George Romney, who released 12 years of tax returns when he began running for President in 1967. As his father said at the time, "One year could be a fluke." So the questions remain about what is in Romney's older returns. Two stories this week and last have ratcheted up the pressure. One is a recent web exclusive for "The Last Word with Laurence O'Donnell" where David Cay Johnston has five...

    When he first took the national stage, with his electrifying keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in the summer of 2004, Barack Obama, then an Illinois state senator, briefly summarized his unusual life story, with its biracial themes and trans-continental setting. "I stand here knowing that my story is part of the larger American story," he said, adding: "In no other country on earth is my story even possible." That story, of course, would become even more astonishing, and profoundly American, four years later, when its teller would be elected president of the United States. But the first time...

    As Barack Obama's lead over Mitt Romney in the polls narrows, and his presumed fundraising advantage seems about to become a disadvantage, it's alibi time for some of his backers. His problem, they say, is that some voters don't like him because he's black. Or they don't like his policies because they don't like having a black president. So, you see, if you don't like ObamaCare, it's not because it threatens to take away your health insurance, or to deny coverage for some treatments. It's because you don't like black people. This sort of thing seems to be getting more...

    Weary of defending in court the Constitutional eligibility of their boy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the Democrat Party has finally admitted Barack Obama is not qualified to be president of the United States and that it doesnt matter. According to a motion filed by Party attorneys in a Tennessee eligibility lawsuit, Defendants [the Tennessee Democrat Party and the Democrat National Committee] assert that the Tennessee Democrat Party has the right to nominate whoever it chooses to run as a candidate, including someone who is not qualified for the office. (1) In numerous previous lawsuits questioning the Constitutional eligibility of Barack...

  • Even When Attacking Obama, Buzzfeed's Ben Smith Protects Him--and the Mainstream Media

    Buzzfeed's Ben Smith criticizes President Barack Obama for falsifying a significant portion of his first autobiography, Dreams from My Father. Smith builds his case on the research in David Maraniss's new book, Barack Obama: The Story. But even when joining Obama's critics, Smith tries to protect him--and the media that allowed Obama to get away with his lies for years, with no small amount of help from Smith himself.

    "Obama is a socialist" seems to be one of the mantras of the right, but while most mantras are grounded in ideology and wishful thinking, this one appears firmly rooted in the evidence. A report by Stanley Kurtz in an upcoming issue of the National Review shows that Obama not only has ties to a leftist-socialist party, but that he also tried to cover those ties in 2008 as he ran for election. LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center explains in his article that Obama was an active member...
