Rapper’s Appearance At White House Stirs Controversy

Despite Republican Criticism, Romney Defends Bay State Healthcare Law

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney’s political record has inspired some tongue-in-cheek remarks from conservative politicians and pundits alike.

What Now?

Over the past several months, we have seen rioting in some Arab and European countries. The riots were sparked by the high costs of food, government austerity measures and government oppression. We have some of the same dynamic going on in the United States. But through a system of bribery, the U.S. government has succeeded, at least temporarily, in preventing Americans from rioting in the streets.

Lies And Half-Truths: A Look At Newt’s Ramblings

Republican Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich has made quite a career out of talking politics since leaving Congress. But his public appearances, books and political commentaries are filled with statements that do not necessarily reflect reality.

For example, in a campaign announcement video released on May 11, Gingrich said, “For four years, we balanced the budget and paid off $405 billion in debt.”

Ron Paul Announces Presidential Bid

At 7 a.m., Representative Ron Paul (R-Texas) announced on “Good Morning America” (GMA) his intention to run in 2012 for President of the United States. This is Paul’s third bid for the Presidency.

In his time in the House, Paul has established one of the most consistently conservative voting records of any Congressman.

Been ‘Laden’ With Taxes: Osama’s Hidden Costs

The reported death of Osama bin Laden won’t lead to a reduction in the amount the United States government spends each year in response to the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. According to an article on MoneyNews.com, “The financial bleeding won’t stop with bin Laden’s demise. One of every four dollars in red ink the U.S. expects to incur in the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1 will result from $285 billion in annual spending triggered by the terrorist scion of a wealthy Saudi family.”

Hypocrisy On The Left: “Progressive” Christian Site Rejects LGBT Ad

A coalition of “progressive” Christians is apparently unfamiliar with the Left’s stance on homosexuality.
