    A new report by Britains Department for Education and Skills notes that an increasing number of schools are dropping the teaching of the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim students. The report, titled Teaching Emotive and Controversial History, also observes that many teachers are reluctant to discuss the Crusades because the lessons frequently contradict what is taught in local mosques... 30 non-Muslim children at an elementary school in Scotland were required to visit a mosque in Glasgow, where they were instructed to recite the shahada, the Islam declaration of faith, which states, There is no god but Allah...

    Conservative Fact Check ^ | 2/13/2012 | Chuck Rogers
    The negative job growth that began during the last year of Bush's presidency was perfectly normal, and even expected; it was the natural byproduct of the market correction. It was expected to last for about a year -- and, it did. Job creation was expected to return to normal in February of 2009, but as the chart shows, under Obama's dismal leadership, job creation recovered too slowly, taking a year to get to baseline, when it should have taken no more than three months.

    An investment fund controlled by billionaire George Soros has significantly boosted its stake in Minneapolis-based Target Corp. Soros Fund Management in New York, whose portfolio is worth more than $7 billion, purchased 543,900 shares of Target stock in the second quarter, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Overall, Soros owns 552,600 shares, or 0.08 percent of the retailer, which the investment firm valued at $25.9 million, the filing says. (State Street Corp., Target's largest investor, owns 63.5 million shares, or 9.4 percent of the company.) In an e-mail, Soros spokesperson Michael Vachon declined to comment. Known...

    The online hoaxbusting website Snopes.com has changed its reference to the purported attending physician at Barack Obama's birth. WND reported just days ago that the site, along with a Buffalo newspaper, referenced a Dr. Rodney T. West as the physician at the birth. However, since that report was published, the passage has been edited to remove a section saying the woman interviewed, talking about the "obstetrician who delivered him," was "referring to Dr. Rodney T. West, who died in February at the age of 98."

    Many of the same news organizations and research groups today dismissing concerns about Barack Obama's constitutional eligibility were far more eager to cover the issue when Republican presidential candidate John McCain was the subject. An archive search shows the question of McCain's birth certificate and his eligibility to be president was actively pursued by Democratic Party activists and the mainstream media in the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, despite the ridicule now heaped upon those questioning Obama's qualifications under Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. In an article published Feb. 28, 2008, months before McCain was nominated for...

    A rumor that wont die is the myth that Barack Obamas birth certificate is fake. There are different theories on where Obama was born, if he was not born in Hawaii as he claims. A prevailing belief is that he was born in Kenya, and as a native Kenyan, is not eligible to be President of the United States. Some have also claimed that his full name includes the name Mohammed, adding to speculation that Obama is a secret Muslim. At this point, mountains of evidence are in and they all point to the fact that Barack Obama is a...

Snopes says the rumor is "undetermined" at this point, but they question whether Obama would switch because doing socould hurt him. They point out that switching hurt McGovern in 1972. An article written yesterday at the liberal Huffington Post thinks it would benefit Obama greatly and urges for it to happen. Do you think there is any...
