    Earlier this week, former President Bill Clinton advised President Obama to "honor the commitment" he made and to allow Americans to keep their health care plans, if they like them. That was a central promise Obama made when he sold Obamacare, but one that turned out not to be true when Obamacare began to be implemented last month. "So I personally believe, even if it takes a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got," Clinton in an interview released Tuesday. Now President Obama...

    On May 3 through 5, the National Rifle Association (NRA) held its annual convention in Houston, Texas. Over 550 exhibitors packed the hall with displays of guns and ammunition, and hunting and survivalist gear of every type. One display of jewelry featured, “bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings made in the style of the elephant hair jewelry made in Africa,” according to the NRA. A man size target resembling President Barack Obama allowed attendees to shoot at the president and make him bleed—until the last day when media exposure forced its removal.

Conservative activist Brent Bozell, chairman of the group ForAmerica, obtained the distribution list and plans to send a letter blasting Crossroads' role in last year's election and the creation of its new independent group for the 2014 mid-term elections. Rove, the former top political adviser to President George W.

The tweet by Walsh, the outspoken former congressman, is in response to the creation of the Conservative Victory Project, a super-PAC being launched by Karl Rove, formerly a top adviser to President George W. Bush. The founders of the Rove super-PAC intend to engage in GOP primary races and back the most electable candidate. The group argues that a number of untested conservative candidates made it through 2012 primaries, only to lose in the general election. The...

She could land somewhere else, and she still has her Facebook friends, but it’s hard to imagine she’ll find a more visible or influential platform than Fox. The former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee has been fading from the scene for some time, as she inadvertently highlighted when she complained on Facebook during the Republican convention in August that the network had canceled her...

    Republican John Koster, a candidate for Congress in the 1st District, received a $5,000 contribution from SarahPAC, the political organization headed by Sarah Palin. Koster is in a tight race with Democrat Suzan DelBene to represent the 1st District, a newly drawn swing district that runs from Redmond to the Canadian border. Palin endorsed Koster in 2010, when he ran against Democrat Rick Larsen. Koster’s far-right tea party ties have been a major talking point for the DelBene campaign, which has branded Koster “too extreme” for the 1st District. Koster’s campaign says DelBene is too liberal...

Gerald Gardner, his chief of staff, said the governor has issued orders to agency heads to continue the reductions in the proposed 2014-15 budget. Gardner told the Nevada Appeal that Sandoval hasn't given up on efforts to undo the work furloughs, pay cuts, and suspension of merit and longevity pay imposed on state workers.

    Almost every state in the U.S. has made cuts to its public-employee pensions, seeking to dig out from the economic downturn, but so far the measures have fallen well short of bridging a nearly $1 trillion funding gap. Since 2009, 45 states have rolled back pension benefits for teachers, police, firefighters and other public workers, including cuts by Michigan and California this month. Next week, Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expected to sign legislation requiring, for example, that certain teachers work longer and pay more toward their pensions.

Before joining the tour yesterday, I was in Baltimore where a black woman told me, “They're tryin' to get him!

Now disbarred District Attorney Michael Nifong withheld crucial DNA evidence that proved not one of the accused had been with the accuser sexually. Subsequent DNA tests demonstrated that there would be no paternity liability on the part of any of them. She was not impregnated during her fake rape. Apparently, that happened later at her discretion. In short, it was not a LEGITIMATE rape. In fact, it was...

    A Time For Choosing ^ | July 20, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson
    As Texans and Conservatives, we know how important this Senate race is. The rest of the country needs to understand how it will impact them as well. We have Ted Cruz, a Reagan Conservative who, as Solicitor General of Texas, has fought not only the United Nations and the World Court, but also the Obama regime, while defending both Texas and United States sovereignty which were under attack. Ted Cruz exemplifies the Texas spirit and is a champion of Liberty and Freedom. He’s served Texas well and will be an asset for the nation. We are fighting to stop current...

    Conservative HQ ^ | 7/13/12 | Richard A. Viguerie
    Who you walk with says a lot about who you are – and this is especially true of candidates for public office and others seeking positions of high public trust. It is also one of Mitt Romney’s most easily cured problems in closing the deal to bring conservatives fully behind his candidacy for President. During the primary season, it was no secret that Governor Romney was not the first choice of grassroots conservatives and Tea Partiers. Part of the reason conservatives had difficulty buying into the Romney candidacy was they looked at the Governor’s team and saw an awful lot...

    Anti-Cruz SuperPAC Receives $2.5 Million - We Must Fight Back!Dear Friends, Just as we predicted, with the news of Tea Party candidate Ted Cruz's good poll numbers in the Texas US Senate race, the 'business as usual' political establishment is in a panic and has dumped $2.5 million into an anti-Cruz SuperPAC to try and take out our candidate with two weeks left in the race.AP PhotoIt is clear that momentum is on our side, but we can't let up with 15 DAYS to go until this important election.  The Dewhurst campaign and his political establishment backers are in...
  • Where Mormonism meets Scientology

    The Telegraph ^ | 7/6/2012 | Damian Thompson
    We can take it for granted that Tom Cruise – whose divorce proceedings are already such a catastrophe for Scientology – will never talk in public about Xenu. The existence of this intergalactic emperor, who flourished c 75,000,000 BC, was top secret until the Church’s enemies took to the internet. Advice to journalists: if you ask Cruise about Xenu, the doors of Hollywood (where the Church wields immense influence) will slam in your face. On the other hand, it’s safe to ask any Scientologist about Kolob. This is the star, or possibly planet, that is closest to the throne of...

    Ted Cruz calls Obama's back-door amnesty "cravenly political, lawless, and wrong" Those are the strong words spoken by Ted Cruz and we couldn't agree more!In case you missed the news last week, President Obama announced a new back-door amnesty plan for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants. This is outrageous and political pandering at its worst.  In an obvious move to gain favor with Latino voters, President Obama is abusing his power as president and turning the White House into a campaign office for his reelection.  We must secure our borders and ensure that the laws of the land...

    Las Vegas Sun ^ | Saturday, June 2, 2012 | 2 a.m. | By Brian Nordli (contact)
    The unprecedented decision for North Las Vegas surprised no one at the special city council meeting Friday. City council members voted unanimously to grant special authority to City Manager Tim Hacker to force unions to agree to concessions to balance the $30.9 million budget gap. Union leaders in attendance met the decision with a resigned silence, predicting the outcome days before the meeting, while city officials remained stoic. No one claimed to want this course of action, but city council members and Mayor Shari Buck deemed it necessary after nearly six months of failed negotiations. “We hoped that the council...
