Pope Benedict XVI.JPG

How To Color the News: The three largest mainstream media wire services all agreed that supporters of Pope Benedict XVI who stood up to anti-Catholic leftists in front of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris on Sunday were extremists of the right. The Associated Press used the "right-wing" label to describe the faithful Catholics. Both Reuters and the French Agence France-Presse both used the term "far-right youths," with the AFP going so far as describing the pro-Benedict protesters as "far-right militants". This is just one more blatant example of media collusion in branding anything/anyone they don't like as right-wing extremists. [1]


The murder of police officers usually DEMANDS an investigation, but not the one involving Weather Underground terrorist and Obama confidant William Ayers, which was stopped cold by the Obama Administration: [2]


Ward Churchill.jpg

Terrorist sympathizer Ward Churchill, a former University of Colorado professor, assailed for likening September 11th victims to a Nazi leader and fired for plagiarism, testified in court Monday that the 2001 terrorist attacks were "perfectly predictable." The only surprise in the Sept. 11 attacks was that "it took so long" for them to happen, he said. [3]


Congressman Barney Frank calls Justice Antonin Scalia a 'Homophobe: The soon turning 69 year old Massachusetts Democrat & Homosexual told a gay online news agency that he hoped the Supreme Court won't ever get to hear a challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act while Justice Scalia is on the bench. [4] This bigoted statement from the person whose former lover was caught running a callboy sex business out of his home, and who told Americans late last year that both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were on sound financial ground. The fact is his most recent lover (1991 until 1998) was an executive in charge of key housing policies at Fannie Mae, and during those years, Frank urged looser lending standards that could enhance his lover's job and bonuses.

What price world trade? South Africa's government refuses a visa for the Dalai Lama... because China told them to. [6]


Know your neighbors Department: Feds say founder of Muslim-only town Islamberg, N.Y., also founded major terror organization Jamaat al-Fuqra, believed responsible for dozens of bombings. The town has its own mosque, grocery store and schoolhouse. It also reportedly has a firing range where residents take regular target practice. Gilani established similar rural enclaves across the country — at least six, including the Red House community in southern Virginia — though some believe there are dozens of them, all operating under the umbrella of the "Muslims of the Americas" group founded by Gilani. [7]

A Democratic New York legislator is indicted for assault, but notice how the liberal Associated Press story never states that he is a Democrat. A careful reader must infer it from the last paragraph.[8]

Are You a Militia Member? According to the Obama Administration and a collection of state governments, you could be. If you're an anti-abortion activist, or if you display political paraphernalia supporting a third-party candidate or a certain Republican (Ron Paul) member of Congress, if you possess "subversive literature", you very well might be a member of a domestic paramilitary group. During a press conference last week in Kansas City, Mo., DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano called "fusion centers" the "centerpiece of state, local, federal intelligence-sharing" in the future. Other potential signals of militia involvement, according to the report, are possession of the Gagsden "Don't Tread on Me" flag! This is yet another sign of the Radical Left Obama & Company using government to stifle all opposition to its radical left agenda. [9]


Abstinence is still the best prescription, CDC to investigate Merck's Gardasil. Barbara Shapiro, an ALS expert and associate professor of neurology says it "may be prudent for concerned parents to consider holding off [ Gardasil ]..." Due to the deaths of Whitney Baird and now Jenny Tetlock, John Iskander of the CDC says "kind of tells us that we need to look more broadly at this issue." [10]


The Obama Administration global warming scheme, full steam ahead! EPA declares CO2 a threat to humans. [11] The end result will be fraudulent cap and trade policies and carbon trading.

  • Global warming may be good for you. Economists tell us that a modest warming would improve agriculture and forestry and increase GNP. And historical evidence backs their studies. [12]
  • China will actually benefit from global warming. Warmer temperatures will boost agricultural production and improve health. The number of lives lost in heatwaves will increase, but the number of deaths saved in winter will grow much more rapidly. [13]

The Red Envelope Project is spreading like wildfire. [14] The idea was an inspiration during one man's prayer, and it is estimated that millions may be sent to the White House by the end of March to protest Obama's promotion of abortion. At one Conservapedian's church today, over 500 red envelopes were requested by attendees before the supply ran out!

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Friday criticized President Barack Obama's joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, calling his off-handed remark on the Tonight Show 'degrading' .... 'These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will,' Palin said in a statement released Friday."[15]

  • Obama never apologized to the public, but reportedly expressed regret in a private conversation with the President of the Special Olympics.

Obama's Budget Deficit Forecast to Hit $1.8 Trillion This Year, Increase By One Trillion More Each Year! Congressional Budget Office figures, released Friday, predict Obama's budget will produce $9.3 trillion worth of red ink over 2010-2019. That's $2.3 trillion worse than the Obama White House predicted in its budget. Whatever happened to that change we could believe in? Is Barack Hussein Obama ever capable of telling the truth? [17]

The five biggest myths about Barack Obama. 1- Obama is bold. 2- Obama is a great communicator. 3- Obamaland is a team of rivals. 4- Obama is smooth. 5- Obama has a good relationship with the media. [19]


March 20th is the six year anniversary of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Many brave men and women in uniform made the ultimate sacrifice to make Iraq a nation that is free, stable, without the fear of tyranny and an ally in the War on Terrorism. America has won this war without the support of congressional Democrats. God bless U.S. troops everywhere, we salute our heroes! [20]

March 26

More than 700 scientists from around the globe have rejected climate change, global warming as proclaimed by the U.N.'s IPCC study. [26] "The explosion of skeptical scientific voices is accelerating unabated in 2009." A steady amount of peer-reviewed studies, analysis, real world data, and inconvenient developments have further cast doubts on the many claims coming from alarmists.


In yet another stunning display of her seemingly endless liberal ignorance, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recently told a group of both legal and illegal immigrants and their families that enforcement of existing immigration laws, work site raids, is "un-American." The Speaker, condemning raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, referred to the illegal immigrants she was addressing as "very, very patriotic." "It must be stopped....What value system is that? I think it's un-American. I think it's un-American." View video HERE --- [27]


Veterans Groups Blasts Obama Plan for Private Insurance to Pay for Service-Related Health Care Cmdr. David K. Rehbein of the American Legion, the nation's largest veterans group, called the president's plan to raise $540 million from private insurers unreasonable, unworkable and immoral. Most Vets and those currently serving never bought into Obama's deceit about supporting them anyway, but still it serves as yet another example of the President's leftist anti-military, anti-defense agenda. [28]


Think you want the government taking over failing companies? Think again. A Massachusetts bank that has defied the odds and remained free of bad loans amid the economic crisis is now being criticized by the FDIC for the cautious business practices that caused its rare success. Why? Because they didn't make enough risky loans! [29]

More Obama Deceit: Attorney General Eric Holder is using the drug violence in Mexico to "confuse and mislead" Americans in an attempt to reinstate the expired federal assault weapons ban. "It's a delusion to say that diminishing the Second Amendment in America is somehow going to stop these ruthless drug cartels in Mexico." said Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, who told FOXNews.com that Holder's "argument in general is bizarre." [30]


The U.S. Census is supposed to be free of politics, but one group with a history of voter fraud, ACORN, is participating in next year's count, raising concerns about the politicization of the decennial survey. [31]

Patriot & Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Says Americans Are Self-Indulgent, Don't Sacrifice. "Our country and our principles are more important than our individual wants," Thomas told close to 400 people who greeted him with a standing ovation at Washington and Lee University. He quoted President Kennedy's famous, "Ask not what your country can do for you" inaugural speech, but said Americans today are more likely to say, "Ask not what you can do for yourselves or your country but what your country can do for you." [34]


The naked socialism that Obama and his cronies have is something that America's farmers need to be scared of. Really scared of: [35]

Planned Parenthood is deliberately covering up sexual molestation and abuse for abortion profits. Undercover videos produced by Live Action Films revealed "Planned Parenthood has a lot to hide.” This has led to an Orange County, California decision to strip $292,000 in taxpayer funds to the notorious group. [36]


Ron Silver 2.jpg

RIP, actor Ron Silver, who died from esophageal cancer at 62, is inspiring many conservative encomiums for the liberal actor who full-throatedly embraced the reelection of President George W. Bush in 2004. In a speech to the Republican National Convention, Silver admitted being "a well-recognized liberal," but rapped his colleagues:

"I find it ironic that many human rights advocates and outspoken members of my own entertainment community are often on the front lines to protest repression ... but they are usually the first ones to oppose any use of force to take care of these horrors that they catalogue repeatedly. Under the unwavering leadership of President Bush, the cause of freedom and democracy is being advanced by the courageous men and women serving in our armed services. The president is doing exactly the right thing." [37]


U.K. Christian minister Noble Samuel of the hour-long live Asian Gospel Show is beaten by Muslims. He was threatened not to return to his TV studio or 'we’ll break your legs.’[38]


HIV-AIDS Rate In Washington, D.C. Higher Than West Africa! At least 3% of residents in the nation's capital are living with HIV or AIDS and every mode of transmission is on the rise, according to a report to be released today by D.C. health officials. "Our rates are higher than West Africa," said Shannon Hader, director of the D.C. HIV/AIDS Administration , who used to spearhead the CDC's work in Zimbabwe. "They're on par with Uganda and parts of Kenya." The number of HIV and AIDS cases jumped 22% from the 12,428 reported in 2006. Black men had the highest infection rate at almost 7%. Only three in 10 had used a condom. With a radical liberal government in control of the District, this is the result of worrying more about taking guns away from law-abiding citizens than stopping an epidemic. [39]

Man arrested for trying to hand the former Weather Underground member Professor Bill Ayers "a Bible and a copy of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged."[41] The prior night the same man was ordered not to record Ayers' speech to students. The main charge was "interference with a public institution of higher education."


The "O" in Obama is for overrated: President Obama has a lot of political power at the moment, with big majorities in both the House and Senate, and is using it to steamroll through what he and the hard left of the Democratic Party have always wanted. [42]

On March 14, 1896, San Francisco celebrated the official opening of the Sutro Baths, an extravagant public bathhouse envisioned and developed by the one-time mayor of San Francisco, Adolph Sutro. An early immigrant to the city, the Prussian-born Sutro was a mining engineer and real estate investor who, it was said, once owned an estimated one-twelfth of the acreage of San Francisco. Sutro made his initial fortune by creating what was known as the Sutro Tunnel, a structure built to facilitate the silver mining of the Comstock Lode in Nevada. [44]

Part of the ill-gotten gains that Bernie Madoff "made-off" with went to the campaign coffers of members of the Democratic Party; the question remains as to whether or not they will return it: [51]


North Carolina divorce judge sides with adulterous father; forcing three homeschooled children to attend public schools this fall, despite their excellent test scores and their mother's desire to continue homeschooling. Will liberal, secular public schools really provide them with a "more well-rounded education", and is that a good thing?! [52][53]


Report: San Francisco Police Union Accuses Obama pal Ayers in Deadly 1970 San Francisco Bombing! A San Francisco police union has accused domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, co-founder of the Weather Underground, and his wife in a 1970 bombing that killed one sergeant, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The union, in a letter to a conservative organization lobbying for arrests in the case, accused Ayers and wife Bernardine Dohrn of bombing a city police station, resulting in the murder of a policeman. [54]

The Democratic/leftist-siding press never bothered to report that James Carville wanted President George W. Bush to fail, which was said at a press corps luncheon on September 11, 2001, just minutes before the first hijacked plane hit the World Trade Center: [58]


U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the United States a "deadbeat" donor.[59] An amazing statement given to Capitol Hill, considering the U.N.'s continual waste and mismanagement of U.S. taxpayers money. [60] [61] Don't forget all the parking tickets 'deadbeat' diplomats still owe. [62]


In their attempts to malign, marginalize, and attack Rush Limbaugh, the hapless liberals never figured that it would only increase his popularity: "If I have an approval rating above a third, that makes me higher than Congress, that makes me higher than lawyers, that puts me with a higher approval rate than Hollywood. Also my approval number of 33 percent is higher than Obama's numbers are going to be when his presidency is over in 2012. If my approval number is 33 percent, that's higher than Vice President Biden's I.Q." : [63]

Guantanamo Detainees Say They Planned 9/11 Attacks The five detainees at Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp charged with plotting the September 11, 2001 attacks have filed a document accepting responsibility for the deaths of 3,000 people and expressing pride at their accomplishment, The New York Times reported late Monday. The document, which the newspaper said may be released publicly on Tuesday, describes the five men as the "9/11 Shura Council," and says their actions were an offering to God, according to excerpts of the document read to a reporter by a government official, the report said. "'To us,' the official read, 'they are not accusations. To us they are a badge of honor, which we carry with honor,'" the paper said. Look for liberals to invent even more excuses to explain this away. [67]


Obama viewed as "insulting" and "distracted" during meetings with British PM Gordon Brown by foreign press. Not a good omen for America from the man dubbed "not ready to lead" during the presidential campaign. [68] [69]

Carol Swain, professor of law and political science at Vanderbilt University, has noted in the Nashville Tennessean that President Obama has now promised to lead the way to cure cancer, end foreign oil dependence and guarantee higher education to everyone who wants it. But when it comes to keeping illegal aliens out of U.S. jobs so that unemployed Americans (especially Blacks and Hispanics) can have them, Obama can't seem to lift a finger. [92]



MORE ON JOBS: 651,000 jobs WERE cut by businesses in February, 12.5 million Americans are actively looking for a job and cannot find even part-time employment. But Socialists Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Hussein Obama & U. S. Chamber of Commerce insist on importing more foreign workers. With no sign of federal leaders tightening the flow, another 280,000 foreign workers have been allowed to enter U.S. job markets since January 1, 2009 ! Yet no one will call this treason? [93]

President Obama now "owns" the worsening economy as fully 61% of Americans think it is possible the United States government could literally go bankrupt. Only 60% of Americans now describe themselves as confident about the future security of their job, down from 64% in September 2008 and 82% in October 2007. Millions are beginning to see Barack Hussein Obama really isn't offering the kind of change the country needs.[95]

From Abraham Lincoln's First Inauguration Speech

"I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearthstone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." -- Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861 [105] The Library of Congress.


Obama wants American health care to be more like Britain's, where "health care services are just about the worst in the developed world. The head of the World Health Organization calculated that Britain has as many as 25,000 unnecessary cancer deaths a year because of under-provision of care. Twelve percent of specialists surveyed admitted refusing kidney dialysis to patients suffering from kidney failure because of limits on cash. Waiting lists for medical treatment have become so long that there are now 'waiting lists' for the waiting list."[106]

This on top of the $150 billion the company has already burned through without setting the company right.

They should rename the company Obama International Group.[119] UPDATE: American International Group Inc., once the world's largest insurer, said today (Monday) it lost $61.7 billion in the fourth quarter, the biggest quarterly loss in U.S. corporate history!

Another First Amendment victory! An appeals court ruled that the state of Montana has no right nor authority to prevent a church from encouraging its members to support traditional marriage. "The liberals who applaud their outcomes and live in their light forget the motivation that drove the champions of freedom. They approve religious intervention in the political process selectively: it's great when it's on their side. In a secular age, Freedom of Speech is more talismanic than Freedom of Religion. But the latter is the first freedom in our Bill of Rights. It is in terms of this first freedom that this case should be decided," said Montana Judge John T. Noonan. [131]

A year ago, Iranian policy-makers found themselves in the uncomfortable position of being literally surrounded militarily by the US Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, while at the same time facing threats from former President George W. Bush that American guns would soon be pointed at Iran.

More Media Deceit: During the Monday 12PM EST hour on MSNBC, anchor Norah O'Donnell interviewed conservative film maker John Ziegler, creator of Media Malpractice, a documentary on media bias against Sarah Palin, and denied any such bias: "Well, let me ask you, you called the treatment of Sarah Palin and her family a, quote, 'media assassination, one of the greatest public injustices of our time.' Is that a little strong? Are you and her a little thin-skinned?" Ziegler responded by pointing out O'Donnell's own anti-Palin bias: "The evidence is overwhelming. It's continuing today. I mean, just a few weeks ago, Norah, you incorrectly stated on the air Sarah Palin called Barack Obama a terrorist during the campaign." [144] [145]

The Journal Register Co filed for Chapter 11 on Saturday. The Chicago-based Tribune Co. sought bankruptcy protection in December, as did The Star Tribune of Minneapolis. Certainly the NY Times cannot be far behind. [153]


Decisions by socialist institutions can kill you. In political correctness gone bizarro, London foster parents aren't notified of their foster children's HIV+ condition, putting entire families at risk. "Putting the human right of the mother's confidentiality about her HIV+ status above the right of the foster carers to know is wrong. It's playing Russian roulette with people's lives." [154]


The creation science organization Creation Ministries International (CMI) now has a section on its website specifically focusing on atheism and agnosticism.[155] Will Creation Ministries International have a bone crushing main article on atheism which utterly refutes atheistic claptrap thought and will this happen soon? Will CMI then pursue a similar policy as far as agnosticism on their website? Conservapedia has learned that both may be likely soon! Other creation science and creationist organizations may follow a similar strategy. Stay tuned for future developments!!! This could be very exciting as evolutionary dogmatism is not based on evidence but is merely founded on errant secularistic ideology.


As our Richard Dawkins article approaches 200,000 views, will atheist Dawkins accept Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's offer for a debate rematch before the article reaches that figure? Boteach says that Dawkins has yet to respond to the latest offer. Is Dawkins afraid he would lose a second debate as well? Boteach said of the previous debate: "In a vote at the end of the debate as to how many students had changed their minds after hearing the arguments, Dawkin's side was defeated and religion prevailed..."[156][157]

Obama taxes.jpg

Congress and Obama just spent nearly $800 billion of your money. How much is that? Well, suppose you spent one million dollars every single day starting from the day Jesus was born – and kept spending through today -- A million dollars a day for more than two thousand years. You would still have spent less money than the big-spending liberal Congress and President Obama just did. [158] [159]

Rush Limbaugh: Mr. President, Keep the Airwaves Free. "You've said you're against reinstating the Fairness Doctrine, but you've not made it clear where you stand on possible regulatory efforts to impose so-called local content, diversity-of-ownership, and public-interest rules that your FCC could issue."

New Yorker magazine senior editor Hendrik Hertzberg appeared on Wednesday's Morning Joe on MSNBC and compared Rush Limbaugh to 1960s segregationist and Ku Klux Klan member Bull Connor. He also linked Barack Hussein Obama to Mohandas K. Gandhi and Martin Luther King. Where are the liberal cries of unfairness and outrage? More proof that the mainstream media is completely unbiased. Not! [172]

After top Obama aide David Axelrod left open the possibility of reinstatement of Fairness Doctrine on Sunday, the Obama camp now denies it will reinstate it. Instead, as Obama campaigned, the liberal attempt to censor critics will probably take the form of FCC regulations mandating displacement of the truth by "opening up the airwaves and modern communications to as many diverse viewpoints as possible."Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, July 13, 2008;Fox News Feb. 18, 2009


It would appear from two statements, one issued by the Vatican and the other by Nancy Pelosi, that The Speaker and the Pope weren't in the same room together! Pope Benedict XVI reminded Pelosi "of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church's consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoins all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development." And Pelosi's recollection of the meeting? "I was proud to show his Holiness a photograph of my family's papal visit in the 1950s, as well as a recent picture of our children and grandchildren." His Holiness most likely wasn't surprised by yet another example of liberal deceit... [176]
