    Following up on my post on Friday about the long illustrious history of conservative vote suppression it’s interesting that one of the nation’s foremost activists in the field should be in the spotlight going into the November election. Indeed, he’s right in the middle of one of the most interesting races in the country. I’m referring to Kris Kobach, the Republican Kansas secretary of state who was sued last week by the former Democratic candidate for the Senate who dropped out of the race in favor of an independent. (SNIP) He also said that he might have “shrugg(ed) my shoulders...

Then you should have to hold down a job, pay taxes, obey our laws. And if you do all those things, I think you should be able to continue to live here and work here."

    If your 11-year-old daughter is regularly raped by organized gangs of Pakistani Muslim men should you be concerned? Well, if you live in Rotherham, England, yes, you should be very concerned about being a racist. Not only that, if you find the house where your daughter is being raped and you go there and try to remove her the police will be called and you will be arrested. This is how we roll in multicultural England, a green and pleasant land of tolerance, diversity and Pakistani Muslim child-rape gangs. Haven't we done well?

    I’m always amused when people accuse me of being anti-Islam, as if it’s a bad thing and as if I’ve been trying to hide it and they’ve somehow caught me out. “Aha, I see what you are now. You’re just anti-Islam.” Yes, well-spotted, Sherlock. Indeed I am. Just like every other sane person on Earth. Why am I anti-Islam? Well, for the simple reason that Islam is anti-me and it’s anti every fundamental value I hold. If I were to accommodate its values in my life, I would have to violate everything that I believe in. I think that’s an...
  • Morgan criticizes Kobach for working with Nugent on Texas bill to kill feral pigs from helicopters

    Republican secretary of state candidate Scott Morgan on Thursday took aim at incumbent Kris Kobach for helping rocker and gun rights activist Ted Nugent and Texas officials pass a law making it easier to hunt feral pigs from helicopters. "The self-appointed Guardian of State Sovereignty needs to stop shooting pigs from helicopters in Texas with Ted Nugent and start focusing on his job in Kansas," said Morgan, of Lawrence, who will face Kobach in the Aug. 5 Republican Party primary. Morgan and other critics of Kobach say he spends too much time advocating around the country for anti-illegal immigration laws...

    News that Pfizer, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, plans to buy Britain’s AstraZeneca for $106 billion, renounce its U.S. citizenship and declare itself a British company has jolted Congress. Pfizer is being denounced as disloyal to the land of its birth, and politicians are devising ways to stop Pfizer from departing. Yet Pfizer is not alone. Hedge fund managers are urging giant corporations like Walgreens to go nation-shopping for new residences abroad to evade the 35 percent U.S. corporate income tax. Britain’s corporate income tax is 20 percent, and Pfizer stands to save over $1 billion a year by moving...

    VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, July 31, 2013 ( – Two days after saying he found nothing sinful about sex-change operations, televangelist Pat Robertson said contraception is “a very important part of humanity” that would prevent the birth of too many Appalachian “ragamuffins.” He also said that Natural Family Planning violated the provisions of the Old Testament. On today's episode of the 700 Club, a woman asked whether the use of birth control is sinful, something about which Catholics and Protestants disagree. When Robertson's co-host, Wendy Griffith, said not all families could afford to have multiple children, Robertson replied, “That's the big...

    ACORN is not dead. In fact it is working hard in Pennsylvania to elect Joe Sestak and other Democrats to Congress. To stay out of the media spotlight this year, ACORN converted its Pennsylvania chapter into two new nonprofit corporations. The two tax-exempt affiliates are Pennsylvania Neighborhoods for Social Justice (PNSJ) and Action United. Both nonprofits filed their incorporation documents in January. Both groups operate out of ACORN's offices at 846 North Broad Street in Philadelphia. The two "new" ACORN groups have been very active in the current election cycle.... Inside ACORN sources say PNSJ has been conducting a get-out-the-vote drive...

    American conservative political commentator Pat Buchanan wrote a column titled 'Are liberals anti-WASP' last week, in which he suggested that if Supreme Court justice nominee Elena Kagan is confirmed, there will be a disproportionately large number of Jews on the Supreme Court bench. In his column for World Net Daily, Buchanan lamented the fact that since 1965, no Democratic president has nominated a black Supreme Court justice, but that "if Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats."

If you ask that question, you must not have flown anywhere since 9/11. I’m talking about the security gauntlet every passenger has to go through.

    A party defines itself by what it stands for, and what it stands against. After the Bush era, the Republican Party has been given the opportunity to redeem and redefine itself -- in opposition to a party and a president who are further left than any in American history. A true conservative party would relish such an opportunity. After all, the Goldwater young did not lie down and die after a defeat far more crushing than the one the party suffered last fall. Is this Republican Party made of similar stuff?

"What the Lord was saying, the people are willing to accept socialism to alleviate their pain," Robertson said on a broadcast of "The 700 Club." Robertson hosts the program, which is aired from the Christian Broadcasting Network studios in Virginia Beach. Robertson said the economy, particularly the stock market, could start rebounding by the second quarter.

Churchill was referring not only to Hitler's political triumphs -- the return of the Saar and reoccupation of the Rhineland -- but his economic achievements. By his fourth year in power, Hitler had pulled Germany out of the Depression, cut unemployment from 6 million to 1 million, grown the GNP 37 percent and increased auto production from 45,000 vehicles a year to 250,000. City and provincial deficits had vanished. ... "Eighty-six...

    On Wednesday, Christian Broadcasting Network founder, Pat Robertson (photo), gave Rudy Giuliani his endorsement in the race for the Republican Party's presidential nomination. Robertson's announcement came as a surprise to many political observers who believe the TV evangelist's position on social issues were not compatible with those of the former New York Mayor. Giuliani graciously accepted Robertson's endorsement. Robertson said the most important issues facing America were terrorism and the defeat of Democrats. Robertson's backing of Giuliani also came as a shock to the other men seeking the GOP's presidential nomination. However, under further scrutiny, Robertson's announcement made perfect sense--for...

Iwamoto, a 38-year-old lawyer, did not tout her gender status in the campaign but has openly advocated for transgender youth and related issues at the state capitol. She placed third in Tuesday's election among six candidates for three seats on the board. She was not immediately available for comment. However, in a statement early Wednesday she said she was looking forward to "working in collaboration with the other...

    "The war we fight today is more than a military conflict," said President Bush to the American Legion. "It is the decisive ideological struggle of the 21st century." But if the ideology of our enemy is "Islamo-fascism," what is the ideology of George W. Bush? According to James Montanye, writing in the Independent Review, it is "democratic fundamentalism." Montanye borrows Joseph Schumpeter's depiction of Marxism to describe it. Like Marxism, he writes, democratic fundamentalism "presents, first, a system of ultimate ends that embody the meaning of life and are absolute standards by which to judge events and actions; and, secondly,...

    My country has been "torn to shreds," said Fouad Siniora, the prime minister of Lebanon, as the death toll among his people passed 300 civilian dead, 1,000 wounded, with half a million homeless. Israel must pay for the "barbaric destruction," said Siniora. To the contrary, says columnist Lawrence Kudlow, "Israel is doing the Lord's work." On American TV, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu says the ruination of Lebanon is Hezbollah's doing. But is it Hezbollah that is using U.S.-built F-16s, with precision-guided bombs and 155-mm artillery pieces to wreak death and devastation on Lebanon? No, Israel is doing this,...

    If Marines did shoot and kill women and children, either in rage or reprisal after the killing of one of their own, and if this alleged atrocity was covered up, those responsible must be punished. That such things happen in every war, even "the Good War," does not excuse them. But if we are agreed upon that, Haditha, nevertheless -- and again assuming the charges are true -- is going to wound this country deeply and divide us bitterly. For two cultures are heading for a collision. The first is the culture of the Marine Corps, hierarchical and familial. Marines...

Chappaquid-ding one’s way out of trouble is in the Kennedy tradition.

But Representative Tony Cornish and Sen. Pat Pariseau want to enshrine that right in state law. They also want a broader definition of castle that includes personal vehicles, businesses and even public places. The lawmakers...

Earlier Sunday, Rev. Jesse Jackson offered support for Chavez, saying the televangelist's call for the Venezuelan leader's assassination was a criminal act.

Christianity, on the other hand, has been the engine of world suffering for over 2000 years. It was Christianity that nearly eradicated the indigenous peoples of this continent, the survivors condemned to the perpetual humiliation of cartoon stereotypes and offensive sports mascots. It was Bush's Christian cousin, Adolf Hitler, who sent hundreds of homosexuals and midgets to the gas chambers even as great agnostics like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fought against racial injustice.

"The conservative movement has passed into history," said the three-time presidential candidate, commentator, and magazine publisher. He’s right. As a movement, a unifying force, the conservatism that mobilized people to vote in sufficient numbers to give control of Congress to Republicans in 1994 and, with the exception of eight years with Bill Clinton in office, has put Republicans in the White House has lost its momentum. Since then, the Democrat Party...

    "The inked fingers was disgusting," Air America radio talk show host Janeane Garofalo declared on MSNBC in denouncing Republican lawmakers who, before and after the State of the Union, showed off an inked finger meant to demonstrate solidarity with Iraqi voters who dipped a finger in ink when they voted. To mock the display, Garofalo soon held up her hand in a Nazi salute as she predicted: "The inked fingers and the position of them, which is gonna be a Daily Show photo already, of them signaling in this manner [Nazi salute], as if they have solidarity with the Iraqis...

    Below is an e-mail I recieved from the Club for Growth. Because you have been such an important part of the Club’s work over the years and such a generous supporter, I wanted you to be among the first to learn about a major new development here at the Club.

For that reason, I decided to resign as president of the Club for Growth and I’m happy to announce...

    Pressure Cooker A Recipe for Chief of Staff Andrew Card is talking about his kitchen. "I know my kitchen really well, as evidenced by my rotund being," Card says, patting his belly. "I know where the oven is and I know where the microwave is and I know where the sink is and I know where the refrigerator is and the freezer and the cupboards and the table and the chairs." Card, 57, is sprawled on the couch of his West Wing office, describing the kitchen from his mind's eye. It is from here that the White House chief of...

    The Liberal Press continues to sing the praises of Democratic President George W. Bush. It was bad enough four years ago when he won with a minority of the popular vote and we were subjected to endless lectures about the fairness of the Electoral College and how wise the Founders were. Now we keep hearing about the President’s so-called mandate from the pages of the New York Times, the Washington Post, and others. Each move he makes seems to be greeted with more and more lavish acclaim. Consider some of these recent excerpts from the Establishment Press: ". . .The...
  • Another victim in the death of Pat Tillman, the truth.

    December 8, 2004 - Another victim in the death of Pat Tillman, the truth. When I first heard about the death of Pat Tillman, I was equally as saddened at the loss of any of our soldiers in Afghanistan. The fact that he had great talent as a football player had nothing do to with his skill and courage as a soldier. The amount of money he gave up was never as big as his love of country and freedom. I remember hearing an interview with him after he made his decision to enlist in the Army. Many of his...

    In the old days, the indignities of air travel involved intrusive elbows from seatmates and toddlers kicking your seatback. In the last few years, they included removing your shoes to get through security and having your nail clippers confiscated. And now this: full-body pat-downs - including bra checks - for people who set off metal detectors or are unlucky enough to be randomly selected.

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Denver Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer was among about 50 former Arizona State teammates of Pat Tillman who gathered Saturday night to help the school retire the fallen soldier's No. 42 jersey in a halftime ceremony. Members of Tillman's family also were on hand for the second such tribute at Sun Devil Stadium, during Arizona State's home finale against Washington State. The NFL's Arizona Cardinals retired Tillman's jersey at their home opener on Sept. 19. "He would be the first one to appreciate us all having a beer on his behalf," Plummer said at a pregame gathering....

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The United States has entered a "dangerous period" in the war against terrorism, and Americans should expect some U.S. combat deaths, President Bush said Monday. Other countries harboring terrorists could also face U.S. action, said Bush, who called on Iraq to allow independent weapons inspections. "This is a dangerous period of time," Bush said during a Rose Garden appearance with two freed U.S. aid workers who had been held for months by the Taliban. "This is a period of time in which we're now hunting down the people responsible for bombing America." The battle against terrorism would...
