Happening Now...

  • If this story is true--what would the USMC, the Pentagon and the Obama Administration have to gain by embellishing the deeds of Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer?

  • A new USA Today/Gallup poll has Romney OR Gingrich beating Obama in all 12 swing states (Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin) --SO, the NOW the question is, which candidate will stand firm once they're in office. Bush's downfall was wanting to be liked. I see Romney as having that same downfall. I see Newt not caring what the other side thinks of him...

  • Michael Savage is offering Newt one million dollars to drop out of the race: "Newt Gingrich is unelectable. Mitt Romney is the only candidate with a chance of defeating Barack Obama, and there is nothing more important than that for the future health, safety, and security of the United States of America,” the statement [on his website] read. “Therefore I am offering Newt Gingrich one million dollars to drop out of the presidential race for the sake of the nation.” Some might see Savage's disdain as an endorsement...

  • Rassmussen just published an interesting poll that shows "more Americans than ever say they celebrate the upcoming holiday of Christmas as a religious one." (88% of American Adults say they celebrate Christmas, and 81% of this group celebrate it as a religious holiday. Just 16% of those celebrants regard it as a secular holiday)

  • Here's some scary information to keep in mind as the infighting of the GOP primary continues: "Soros aids hundreds of left-wing groups in America each year under the auspices of his Open Society Foundations. In just 10 years, Soros has given more than $550 million to liberal organizations in the United States.

    That’s just the beginning. That total represents about 27 percent of the $2 billion given out by the American branches of his Open Society Foundations from 2000 to 2009. (2010 forms are unavailable and Open Society staff uncooperative.) Overall, he has given more than $8 billion to those foundations since they first started in 1993, as an outgrowth of his “open society” charity efforts dating back to 1979. His foundations credit him as having given that money “to support human rights, freedom of expression, and access to public health and education in 70 countries.”

    According to The New York Times, the foundation claims “it is on track to give away about $860 million” this year. If things stay true to form for Soros, much of that money will head toward liberal groups in the United States." (source)

  • Have you seen the cartoon from 1934 that seemingly depicts/predicts the OWS movement?
