Michele Bachmann rebuked Tim Pawlenty's criticism of her during last night's debate among Republican presidential candidates, by telling the truth about Pawlenty's liberal record: "When you were governor in Minnesota, you implemented 'cap and trade,' and you praised the unconstitutional individual mandates and called for requiring all people in our state to purchase health insurance. You said the era of small government was over. That sounds more like Barack Obama, if you ask me."  See a complete rundown of her performance in the debate: 
White House honors Muslim Americans. Obama used the occasion to publicly support the building of a mosque in Lower Manhattan, saying, “Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country.”

Another atheist government shows its economic ineptitude. First, the Soviet Union economically crumbles. Next, the atheist government of China is going to be taking a huge hit in terms of its loans to Western governments. In addition, China is facing stagflation and its economic strategies are reaching the end of their effectiveness.
President Barack Obama and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke, the Laurel and Hardy of providing economic "solutions", discussed the economy and the global recovery in a meeting Wednesday. The renowned investor Jim Rogers still thinks the Obama Administration and Bernanke are incompetent and are throwing gasoline on an economic fire.VIDEO
Liberal stupidity or liberal hate at work in England. The fires in London have a direct tie to years of liberal dogma, turning young minds into welfare-dependent, uneducated thugs without any morals at all: 
"Fallen off Olympus, Obama stammers", by Charles Hurt  "Gaunt and gray, he looks like he needs a cigarette. Real bad."
S&P Credit rating downgrade may be in store for France. France has lots of debt; is losing economic competitiveness to Germany; dysfunctional politics plus it maybe bailing out other European countries. 
The French government, reacting to downgrading of the United States' credit rating by Standard & Poor's, says it has full trust in the U.S. economy. Didn't the French government fully trust the "invincible" Maginot Line?

American liberalism is starting to have its back against the wall as it now finds it harder and harder to spend other people's money.
Wikipedia "is losing contributors, its founder complained Thursday." Wikipedia wants "university professors to assign the writing of Wikipedia entries to their students, particularly in India, Brazil, Canada, Germany and Britain."  Just make sure none of the edits are conservative truths!
The bulls on Wall Street led a rally based on a new unemployment rate of 9.1%, slightly better than expected, but within the first hour the rally had evaporated and the overall dismal economy pushed stocks lower.  By mid-afternoon Friday the Dow was slightly higher than its low opening level.
Incompetent leaders are seriously harming America. The French philosopher and diplomat Joseph de Maistre wrote “Every country has the government it deserves.” America's public schools are churning out inept voters who elect inept leaders. Compared to 30 other developed countries, the American education system ranks near the bottom.
Flaky evolutionists and peddlers of extraterrestrial life push alarmist bunk about Comet Elenin while creation scientists offer objective science. More on Elenin: does it offer clues to where comets came from, and what extra weight the solar system might be carrying beyond Neptune?
Barack Obama and his staff eat a high calorie meal at a burger joint. Obama says concerning his wife, Michelle Obama, who is supposedly heading an anti-obesity campaign in the United States, "Michelle eats here all the time".
The side of the Moon that faces us is smooth, as an artist would paint; but the opposite side is jagged, as an astronomer would expect. Here's the latest "scientific" theory to explain it: there was somehow a second moon that collided with the real Moon precisely to make one side smooth and other jagged. Even Time observes, "A new theory in science isn't worth much, however, unless you can test it somehow."  No kidding.
The Department of Education indoctrinates little children to believe in global warming. And they use a private firm to further their aim. Lenin said it best: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope.
The popular Christian YouTube channel, Shockofgod, just released a video entitled Atheist Penn Jillette being called coward by atheists. VIDEO. Hours before, he released another video entitled Blogs say Penn Jillettes refusal to debate "smacks of cowardice".VIDEO.

August 2nd: Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner can’t say for sure that the U.S. government will keep its AAA credit rating. 
Liberals got what they wanted on the debt ceiling, but want to pretend that Barack Hussein Obama gave away the store. In the process, they threw away their advantage of surprise, and embarrass themselves with their asinine histrionics.
The House -- after wasting weeks of everyone's time by pretending to be fiscally responsible -- votes to waste trillions more of Americans' money. 66 Republicans voted against continuation of the economic charade. 
When judges break their own rules, is justice safe? What is going on in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, which is now hearing an appeal on the healthcare reform bill, is outrageous. Now the plaintiffs have demanded an en banc hearing.
Stocks decline on the sham deal over the debt ceiling.  The deal is just an incumbency protection plan, postponing any real decisions until after the 2012 election. Can't politicians find a way to feel important without costing Americans so much money?
The so-called Budget Control Act of 2011 will not control the budget. The debt ceiling rises anyway, the cuts are minuscule, and taxes will go up, when the Joint Committee on the Budget says they must. Read the fine print, and pay no attention to the liberal play-acting.
Governor Perry: "I am for the federal marriage amendment." In addition, [life] "didn't happen by accident and a creator put this in place," and "I think there's enough holes in the theory of evolution..." that creationism should be taught. 
10 Democrats and every Republican in the House just voted against the big spending plan of Harry Reid and his fellow liberals: 246 to 173.  Is that the best liberals can do?? And by the way: 43 Republican Senators said that they would vote against the Reid plan, too.
'With Congress in deadlock over the debt ceiling, too many people are deceiving the American people about what running against the debt ceiling would really mean. The real answer: not as bad as keeping on with what we are doing.
Atheists/evolutionists/liberals struggle to figure out generosity. The Economist writes "Studying human evolution directly is obviously impossible." Will liberals figure out why U.S. atheists/liberals are less charitable than American conservatives? Where are the atheist hospitals?
OVERRIDE: the Republican North Carolina legislature overrides their Democratic governor's veto and passes a fabulous pro-life sonogram law.  North Carolina jumps to #2 in abortion legislation 2011.
Still no vote in the House on a debt ceiling bill. The Tea Party movement has had enough insult from the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and John McCain, and are not inclined to pass something that won't make a difference, anyway.
Court order has been issued; that birth certificate is going to be examined, and if it differs from what was released by the White House, criminal charges will be filed. 
U.S. Congressman Ron Paul has "no doubt" debt ceiling will be raised and he says a lot of "fear mongering" is going on. In addition, Paul says America needs to get serious about military and domestic spending cuts.VIDEO

Prayer saved the lives of 4,313 children through the 40 Days For Life campaign.  53 clinic workers have had a change of heart and quit. 14 abortion clinics have shut down since 2004. Coincidence? "Someone once described a coincidence as a miracle where God chooses to remain anonymous."
It took Bill O'Reilly 3 days to catch up to Conservapedia in exposing the liberally biased misuse of the term "Christian" in reference to the Norway mass murder suspect. With such foot-dragging, is it any wonder that Fox News Channel has been declining in influence??
Jeb Bush has been at #3 in our ranking of likelihood to win the Republican nomination for president, and recently he refused to rule out his possible candidacy. He leads Obama by 19 points in the pivotal state of Florida.

Another Blue Dog Democrat calls it quits. Arkansas Democratic Congressman Mike Ross won't seek re-election. Because of the redistricting process, his district became more Republican. With his departure, there is a distinct possibility that Arkansas will lack a House Democrat for the first time in its history. 
A Congressman is calling for a probe into the banning of Christian prayers at military funerals. "It makes my skin crawl that liberals are attempting to drive prayer out of a funeral ceremony for our heroes," Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) said. "We’re going to fix this so that no Obama liberal bureaucrat will interfere with the funeral of a hero." 
Free speech? Casey Anthony is free, but a man who was leafleting outside the same courthouse since 2010 gets a half-year in jail for not abiding by "highly unusual" trial protections for Casey. "He got wrapped up in the circus that was the Casey Anthony trial. He got swept up in the whirlwind rather than he sought out the whirlwind," his attorney observed. 
The Norway massacre suspect's father -- a retired Norwegian diplomat -- had not seen his son for about 15 years and declared, "I will never have more contact with him." The son reportedly took drugs prior to the killing rampage. 
Latino Democrats outnumber elected Latino Republicans but the tide has turned.

Republicans plan to invest $3 million into the recruitment of 100 Hispanic candidates for 2012. 
Latest debt ceiling follies: two competing bills, neither of which is sure to avoid a downgrade—and then Barack Hussein Obama makes a campaign speech. Will the debt ceiling actually rise on time? Or not? Or maybe, should the debt ceiling fall, not rise? Plus: what the Republicans should have said back to the man now holding office as President, but didn't have the guts, or maybe the wit.
Norway massacre suspect was a Darwinian who declared, "On the Church and science, it is essential that science has an indisputable priority on the teachings of the Bible." (translated from here). That's certainly not a "fundamentalist Christian" as the liberal media claimed.
A credit rating agency cuts the credit rating of the United States. Barack Obama and his fellow leftists are called angry "financial crack addicts" due to their addiction to increasing America's debt and their anger when their "financial crack" supply is being threatened.
What do Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison all have in common? They were all drug abusers, glamorized by the rock music industry and Wikipedia, who died at the young age of 27. 
Did a liberal insert the terms "Christian" and "conservative" on a Facebook page about the perpetrator of the Norway massacre, causing the lamestream media to smear conservatism in headlines around the world? The evidence suggests the labels were not genuine: 
How much did the dark fantasy violent video game "World of Warcraft" influence the perpetrator of the massacre in Norway? Playing that game was a favorite activity of his, yet few liberal news stories admit it.
The ghost of Vidkun Quisling haunts Norway. "The official story defies logic in the following sense as well," said talk show host Michael Savage, "if this lone right-winger hated Muslims, as the New York Times is reporting, then why did he slaughter his own people and not Muslims?" 
Without evidence of regular church attendance or Bible reading, the liberal media rush to try to blame "fundamentalist Christianity" for the massacre in Norway - perhaps hoping to influence politics elsewhere with that bizarre spin.
A newspaper article about Conservapedia and homeschooling is still making news nearly two weeks later ... for how biased the article was.  Will newspapers ever report on how liberal many public school courses are?
Terrorism rocks Norway
A terror bomb blast in government buildings in the Norwegian capital left seven people dead  and 50 miles from Oslo, a gunman opens fire on Norway Labour Party's youth camp.  Twenty-five feared to be dead (currently 80). Are we prepared for terrorist with more powerful explosives? "Only guns" seems to be not enough.
The liberal left's big lie on Salvador Allende exposed. He was a Marxist who nearly brought his country to ruins, committing suicide rather than be ousted by a court order:  And the left still wants to blame the CIA!
It would appear that the mere sight of the U.S. flag can cause liberals to vote Republican.  Maybe we should display more of them!

The Christian organization Teen Challenge has achieved remarkable results for people seeking escape from drug addiction while consumers of secular counseling psychology for alcoholism receive hardly any benefit at all. The Apostle Paul in a letter to the church of Corinth indicated that Christians were able to overcome being drunkards through the power of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 6:9-11).
2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain released a Gospel album on the internet.  Cain is a successful business CEO, conservative radio show host, and author. Also, he serves as associate pastor in the Atlanta area.

IPCC still fudging the numbers to alarm the public on Global Warming. The IPCC relied on liberal activist Greenpeace and other lobbyists for their recent report. No real scientists or engineers were involved. 
18 Signs That Global Financial Markets Smell Blood In The Water.
Is Barack Obama going to start leading with a credible and legislatively passable debt plan instead of continuing to be the follower in chief? Debt talks are yielding little results.

Democrat Billionaire Steve Wynn Rips Into Barack Hussein Obama. "Pure socialist," "the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime," and "a total lack of leadership." 
Department of Justice accused of withholding information from Congress over "gunwalking" to Mexico. An innocent gun-store owner goes to jail for obeying federal orders to let some of those guns walk. How many others will go to jail for "just obeying orders"?
"Top Cisco employee reportedly fired for defending marriage, family. ... 'I was fired as a vendor by Cisco for my conservative beliefs about sex and marriage even though my beliefs were never expressed on the job,' said Turek, a periodic columnist for the conservative paper Townhall." 
"NATO destroys radar at Tripoli’s international airport NATO warplanes destroyed the radar antenna at Tripoli International Airport on Monday, the alliance said, claiming the system was being used for military purposes by Moammar Gaddafi’s regime. A statement said the air traffic control radar at the civilian airport was tracking NATO jets and the providing information to Libyan air defenses."  Next time it will be drinking water because loyal Libyans also use it. What a shame!
