  • Jon Karl to Cheney: Are You Accusing Obama of ‘Treason’?

    Mediaite ^ | June 22, 2014 | Evan McMurry
    On This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, ABC News Chief White House correspondent Jon Karl asked former Vice President Dick Cheney if his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal last week, in which Cheney and daughter Liz accused President Barack Obama of wanting to take America “down a notch,” was tantamount to calling Obama a traitor. “It almost seems like you’re accusing the president of treason here,” Karl said, “saying he’s intentionally bringing America down a notch.” While adding that he intended “no disrespect” to Obama, Cheney launched into a comprehensive critique of the president’s foreign policy, which he...

    When you look around society today, it doesn’t look good. Even in the Church, people are committing abortion and contraception. They are sleeping together outside of marriage, using porn, and doing a host of other things that can endanger their souls. It can be tempting to conclude that most Catholics in America today are going to go to hell. Is the situation that bleak?  A Question from a Reader A reader writes: I belong to a great parish, full of wonderful people who love God and neighbor.

    November 17, 2012 Did Obama Cheat? How to Answer the Question By Paul Murphy There are 15 states with photo ID requirements for voting. Mr. Obama lost in all of them. In places with the weakest controls, specifically counties in Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, he generally drew turnouts in the 90% or greater range and won by better than 95% of the vote. Losers tend to look for external explanations, and a lot of conservatives looking at numbers like those from Florida's St. Lucie County (where Mr. Obama got 247,713 votes from only 175,554 registered voters) are starting to...

    Religion Dispatches ^ | Oct. 22, 2012 | Eric C. Miller
    Writing in the National Catholic Reporter in early August, Nicholas Cafardi made the provocative assertion that between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, the president is the more pro-life candidate. A significant part of the Duquesne law professor’s argument is that Obama favors “support for vulnerable pregnant women and alternatives to abortion [which] will make abortions much less likely, since most abortions are economic.” A few weeks later, just thirty-four days before the election, that argument became even stronger. On October 3, researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine published a study with profound implications for policy making in the...

Bush carried the state narrowly in 1988.  In subsequent cycles, the Keystone State frequently felt like 'the one that got away' for Republicans; polling would look close and tightening in October, only to go blue in November, thanks to Democrats' formidable firewall in Greater Philadelphia.  This year, it appeared that Pennsylvania wouldn't even be in the conversation for the GOP ticket.  Barack Obama won the state by double-digits in 2008, and numerous...

    Conventional wisdom hold that black support of Barack Obama is due solely to the color of his skin. I question that. To be sure, he received 95% of the black vote, but 4 years earlier, John Kerry received 89% of the black vote. That 6% difference is magnified by a noticeable increase in the black vote. But President Obama also received a slightly higher percentage of the white vote. Maybe black people overall have a different view of government from white people do. Maybe black people believe in the central government more because of their experience in the South in...

On his top-rated show today, Savage played an audio clip of Breitbart telling an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had obtained videos that shed light on Obama’s ties to radicals in the early 1980s who helped propel him to the presidency

    I am amazed at how, every four years, many otherwise sane human beings want to become president of the United States. Harry Truman, our 33rd president, is reputed as having said: "If you want a friend in Washington, buy a dog." Usually, a president is inaugurated with great pomp and jubilant celebrations followed by a brief "honeymoon" period. After the honeymoon ends, however, he pleases practically no one and disappoints nearly everyone. Why anyone would wish that upon himself or herself is beyond me. Minus a few exceptions, Ronald Reagan being one who comes to mind, the men who have...

    The GOP needs Marco Rubio on the Ticket in 2012 as VP. If we do not carry Florida and if we do not take some of the Hispanic vote away from Obama nation-wide, he might very well be reelected. We need enough votes to prevent the Chicago Thug-style Politics from stealing the Election. Don't think it can't happen. Remember how the Kennedys stole the 1960 Election from Nixon. The Question then arises: IS MARCO RUBIO CONSTITUTIONALLY ELIGIBLE? The answer is emphatically YES! So is Bobby Jindal. There are many authorities I could cite but I'll use one to conserve space...

Our politicians are starting to commit the same wasteful blunders, resulting in the same perverse consequences, as the Europeans have in pricing carbon dioxide emissions, ostensibly to fight climate change. The harbinger of many bad things to come for us is now happening in B.C. There, the provincial government is forcing the transfer of millions of tax dollars from cash-strapped schools, hospitals and other public institutions, by requiring them to buy carbon offsets. Money which then benefits hugely profitable energy companies like Encana. This is eerily reminiscent of what happened in...

    The peace treaty that the late President Anwar Sadat signed with Israel, is extremely unpopular with the Egyptian people. If free elections were to be held, any presidential candidate who hoped to stand a good chance of being elected, may be tempted to bash Israel in his campaign speeches. If diplomatic relations between Egypt and Israel were to be cut off, there could be big trouble. If the Egyptian government were to refuse to cooperate with Israel in maintaining the blockade against Hamas, that might ignite an Egypt/Israel military conflict.

We don't ask this to score points, but because we believe this could be one of the most serious breaches of U.S. terror law that we've seen since 9/11. President Obama announced in a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that he's planning to send $400 million in so-called humanitarian aid to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. The problem is that the Gaza Strip is controlled by a terrorist organization called Hamas. And I use the word "controlled" mildly.

Maybe, but I do not think so. I think it is much more personal than that.

    As if we needed any reminder that times in America have changed, there is further evidence that the nearly decade-long rally of prosperity and reduced crime has ended. We are officially in a recession, a panel of experts told us last week, after months of speculation and hundreds of thousands of layoffs. At the same time, many big cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, Boston and Pittsburgh are reporting an increase in homicides this year, potentially signaling an end to the slide in violent crime. In Chicago as of last week, police had recorded 612 murders so far in 2001...

And unlike McCain he might not have had to give up on Michigan, where his father was governor. (What state pray tell is McCain holding that Mitt couldn't?)
