    50's and 60's hitmaker Pat Boone came out with his strongest indictment of President Barack Obama's policies on Neil Cavuto's Fox Business News Program Wednesday night. In the past, Boone has publicly criticized Obama, saying that he fully believes he was born in Kenya and that the president had turned the White House into a Mosque. Boone is a member of the Tea Party. Boone told Cavuto "He is following his playbook, which is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. This is the guy that trained him to be a community organizer, a Marxist, a socialist, a progressive, who wrote the...

    President Barack Obama's promise to raise the estate tax by 5 percent to 55 percent should he be re-elected in November is “not just wrong, it’s criminal,” legendary singer Pat Boone told Newsmax.TV. "People that have worked hard, people who have saved, paid their taxes, set something away and now want to leave it to their family—if they have the bad judgment to die, the government will step over and say: ‘Thank you. We will take 55 percent of that,’” Boone told Newsmax in an exclusive interview on Friday. “And if you have to sell your business, have to sell...

    GOP money floods battlegrounds, threatens Dems' hold on SenateBy Alexander Bolton - 05/01/12 05:00 AM ET Third-party groups allied with the Republican Party have vastly outspent Democratic incumbents and their backers in Senate battlegrounds. The disparity in advertising firepower threatens Democratic control of the Senate and could have an impact on the presidential race as well. Sen. Sherrod Brown, a first-term Democrat from Ohio, has been the primary target of outside groups, which have outspent his allies by a ratio of 10-1 this election cycle. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Crossroads GPS and 60Plus Association have funded the bulk of...

I've known Rick for many years and Rick has been a consistent defender of conservatism and the values our great nation was founded upon,” Boone said in a statement provided by the Santorum campaign on Sunday. Comparing the former senator to Ronald Reagan, the 77-year-old singer said Santorum is “experienced, honest, and deeply principled.” Happy about the nod, Santorum said in the release, "I am proud to receive Pat's endorsement today.

In an appearance at a Republican convention in Los Angeles, Boone, a member of the Beverly Hills Tea Party, told reporters: “I was in Kenya a year and a half ago and everybody said, ‘You know, he [Obama] was born here.” He added: “Why else would he be hiding all his records?

    *snip* Yes, and a resounding, fervent promise by the newly elected President Obama: "My administration will bring a new transparency in our governance." That sounded so good, didn't it? *snip* Our president informed the Muslim world that "America is no longer a Christian nation," and that because of the number of Muslims in our borders that we might be considered "a Muslim nation." These and other similar comments amazed the over 80 percent of Americans who still identify themselves as Christian. *snip* But the issue that makes his notorious promise of "transparency" seem so hollow – and false – is...

    Here’s a personal maxim gleaned from long years of experience, observation, and active participation in the politics of our beloved country: In voting and political involvement, we get either what we need — or what we deserve. If we the people stay informed, stay active and involved, and prayerfully exercise our constitutional power to vote like-minded representatives into government, we can have what we need. If, on the other hand, we become lethargic, apathetic, and uninformed (even ignorant) about the issues confronting us; if we choose to “leave it to George” to sort out the best candidates and their positions,...

    At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, it's reported that a lady approached the venerable Benjamin Franklin and asked, "Well, Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?" And the grand old man responded gravely, "A republic – if you can keep it." You may have heard that quote before, but have you asked yourself just what Ben Franklin was getting at? Well, the long, tiresome and often contentious convention had almost ended with nothing, with members going back to their home states angry and bitter.

Millions have been spent already. Internet postings are appearing like flies on flypaper – and being avidly read and quoted on broadcast talk shows.

Like AARP in many ways, but more conservative in political and economic outlook, 60 Plus stumps for seniors 24/7, across the board.

    So, the pope came to town. Yes, and the town (little Washington, D.C.) practically came unglued. The media fell all over themselves, situating cameras all over the city and scrambling for position to broadcast every move His Eminence made. He even made Entertainment Tonight, and virtually every news show on TV. There was the president himself, waiting at the foot of the stairs as his guest descended from Shepherd I, to welcome the pope, who stepped nimbly down to the tarmac, beaming with delight. There were cherry-blossomed streets for the motorcade through the city, a grandly arrayed White House lawn...

Has it not become insufferable, inexcusable, for any of us to feel cowed and almost forbidden by some notion of "political correctness" to even exclaim "Merry Christmas!" to shop clerks, airline stewardesses, delivery men, even passersby on the streets and in the stores? How long will we let this go on? The latest brouhaha, claiming "lead-item" status on the news and talk shows, is a simple, warm and...

    OK, stay with me. I know it's a startling title, but I intend to validate it and its assertion here. So do stay with me, please. I've been home a week since partial knee replacement surgery in Chicago barely a week ago. Both the surgery and the therapy are making me very optimistic about my return to the tennis and basketball courts. But meanwhile, I've had unusual time to read my voluminous mail, watch the news and do some reflective thinking. And a couple of things have become very clear to me. One, our society is in deep, deep trouble...

    In this time, when bad news and ominous portent is so rampant, I can't resist passing along especially great news when it comes my way. Sometimes the din of despair – about hurricanes, earthquakes, economic downturns, accelerating terrorist threats, vast numbers of illegal aliens, health care and looming Social Security insolvency, melting ice caps, droughts, floods, unprecedented low approval ratings for Congress and the president – is almost deafening. And certainly disheartening! Furthermore, in my new memoir, "Pat Boone's America: 50 Years," I express my deep and growing concern about our moral drift and the obvious decline in our culture's...

    Teachers are my heroes. As I searched my heart and my options back during my high school days, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. No particular academic subject fired this ambition… I simply felt a desire to affect positively the minds and direction of a lot of young people while I lived on this planet. So I figured I'd teach English, a happy middle of the road subject, and try to be a good role model like the many teachers who were influencing me. Singing, acting, TV, and other pursuits interrupted those plans, but never dulled my admiration...

    The above question, either in word or implication, is being voiced by way too many these days, as people and governments cast about desperately for lasting solutions in the Middle East. Many Western and European political leaders – having heard the deprecations and the determination to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, from the likes of Palestinian Yasser Arafat, Saudi Arabian Osama bin Laden, Iraq's Saddam Hussein, Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and so many other power brokers in the region – have come dangerously close to deciding that little Israel is the "thorn in the side" of world order....

    One set of judicial decisions created the foundation and framework for humane society. Another set, much more recent, has negated much of the first and laid out a program that has the appearance of George Orwell's "1984." One set was composed of ten directives, formulated by the Creator and Judge of the universe, and intended to promote healthy, considerate and moral relationships between people, and between human beings and their God. The other set of 10 judicial decisions is designed to stifle free expression, erase any standards of moral behavior and absolutely forbid any public acknowledgement of the very...

    "Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves." – Romans 13:1, 2 "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of...

    Who tells the boss whom he can hire and fire? Other employees? Is it that way where you work? Maybe, if you're a member of Congress, or are part of a staff that answers to one of them. See, it's an accepted principle in the rarified air of American politics that if you want to maximize your political power, you stack the bureaucracies with your own people, just as fast and deep as you can. Before Franklin D. Roosevelt infamously sought to stack the Supreme Court – which he failed at, praise be to the Almighty – this was already...

    One of my favorite early Steve Martin routines went something like this: "Would you like to make a million dollars and pay no taxes? OK. First, make a million dollars. Now, just don't pay any taxes; and if somebody from the IRS asks you about it, just say … 'I forgot!'" Nonsense? Sure. But funny, especially as Steve delivered it? You bet. But there's some absurd nonsense, not especially funny, being taught our school kids every day, in almost every school in America. Darwin's theory of evolution. (Column continues below) "But it's science," you say. No, not really. Certainly, not...

    Escondido, Calif. -- Harald Bredesen, a Lutheran minister who helped shape the ministry of evangelist Pat Robertson and spread a form of evangelical praise known as "speaking in tongues," died Friday. He was 88. Bredesen died at Palomar Hospital from complications following a fall at his home on Tuesday, said Tom Gilbreath, Bredesen's longtime assistant. Bredesen befriended evangelist Pat Robertson while they both lived in New York in the late 1950s. Robertson credits Bredesen with leading him into a charismatic Christian experience known as "Baptism in the Holy Spirit," after which Robertson began to speak in the exuberant prayer language...

    I loved my friend, Sam Walton. I still do. I first met him when he was just getting started. At that time, he operated a scant 4,000 stores or so – still just a homespun, hometown storekeeper who had turned a little five and dime store into a giant national retailer. A perpetual twinkle in his eyes, he exuded the enthusiasm of a much younger man who was seeing his impossible dream materialize, his vision of making excellent products available to millions of folks just like him, at prices lower than any other retailers thought possible. His vigor, his energy,...

    I played tennis with Sam Walton Yes, the man who conceived, founded and built the mighty Wal-Mart. What a man he was! Everything he did, he gave his all to. That, I found out, included tennis. I'm remembering a match on his home court in Bentonville, Ark., when my pro partner, John Newcomb, and I faced Mr. Sam and his partner, Rod Laver. Mr. Sam had to be in his late 60s by then, but he ran for everything, and if he got his racket on the ball, he was likely to put it away. The other three of us...

    Think about it a minute. Compare the concept of democracy – where individuals may speak and act and express their faith according to their own understandings – with theocracy, where an elite few dictate what all individuals can and cannot say, do or express concerning their beliefs. Think Iran. Think Ahmadinejad and his coterie of Islamist extremists, exercising total control over the oil giant nation, funding and arming Hezbollah, orchestrating much of the inhuman violence in Iraq, promoting and supporting Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida and terrorist murder around the world, actively and defiantly preparing nuclear capability while at the...
