The remarkable victory by Republican Bob Turner in a heavily Democratic congressional district may have been due to his opponent's vote for same-sex marriage, and even the New York Times provides evidence for that theory: "In interviews at polling places on Tuesday, several Orthodox Jewish voters cited" the marriage issue as the main reason they voted Republican. 
Conservapedia is proven right again: "Research showing that action video games have a beneficial effect on cognitive function is seriously flawed, according to a review published this week in Frontiers in Psychology."

Wikipedia's article on Richard Dawkins says very early on in their article that Dawkins is a supporter of the Brights Movement. Yet, the web traffic company Compete says the Brights Movement main website has significantly falling traffic as can be seen HERE. With supporters like Richard Dawkins who needs enemies!
The New York Times recently published an article "Beyond New Atheism". Translation: New Atheism failed. Dawkins was a founder of the New Atheism movement. The boorish Richard Dawkins inability to communicate effectively to a women audience (For example his "Elevatorgate" scandal) and his cowardly refusal to debate Dr. William Lane Craig has certainly diminished his influence.
Five speeches over the course of one week, Barack Hussein Obama has said "pass this bill" over 90 times.  The same bill that has not been seen, read, debated or voted on. Now we learn how important it is for Democrats to move on the President's demand. No Democrat filed Obama’s bill after he presented it to Congress so Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took the name "American Jobs Act" for his own legislation. 
The Republican Bob Turner won by 8%, doing even better than the polls indicated he would in a district that is 3-to-1 Democratic.  Notice how the lamestream media downplay his landslide margin of victory?

Attention evolutionists: For two thousand plus years, Christians have very effectively answered the questions posed to them and global Christianity is exploding in terms of adherents. Why can't you answer 15 straightforward questions posed to evolutionists? You have had 150 plus years to answer basic questions and you still can't do it!
The consensus is that Michele Bachmann won support by criticizing Rick Perry for trying to impose the HPV Vaccine, a big issue in last night's Republican debate for the Presidential Election 2012. 
American Islamic Leadership Conference has thrown its support behind a Michigan bill that would ban the use of Sharia in courts. "As American Muslims, we believe that the law should treat people of all faiths equally, while protecting Muslims and non-Muslims alike from extremist attempts to use the legal instrument of shari‘ah (also known as Islamic jurisprudence, or fiqh) to incubate, within the West, a highly politicized and dangerous understanding of Islam that is generally known as “Islamism,” or “radical Islam.”

Propaganda that would make Joseph Goebbels proud. After the President's joint session speech to Congress, the White House spammed reporters with over 50 emails describing unwavering support for Obama's jobs plan.  A plan nobody has seen, read, debated, or paid for.
Barack Obama is probably too stubborn to learn from Canada which has largely defied the global recession by cutting government spending.  Canada's unemployment rate is 7.2 percent. Previously, Canada's unemployment rate was significantly higher.

Ron Paul just killed the deal. He spoke of withdrawing air conditioners from troops in Iraq, and said that gun-toting guards on the border could serve to pen Americans in. Yes, he said that. And worse. 
"Big" U.S presidential speeches on the American economy have a history of failure: How The Seven Biggest Presidential Speeches On The Economy Failed.  Does anyone believe that Barack Obama's "big" speech on the American economy is going to be the exception?
Of course, the evolutionist and atheist PZ Myers (who is afraid to debate Vox Day) cannot satisfactorily answer the 15 questions of the Question evolution campaign. As Vox Day rightly points out, evolutionism is a useless ideology when it comes to practical scientific applications.
An evolutionist admits it is "disingenuous to argue that the origin of life is irrelevant to evolution". No doubt the grassroots Question evolution! campaign will help show they are both part of the bankrupt ideology of evolutionism.
Question to evolutionists: Have you ever heard the term "chemical evolution"? Evolutionists are such hypocrites.
Shadow TARP: Secrets of the Federal Reserve exposed by Freedom of Information Act requests. "The Fed's Shadow TARP issued $1.2 trillion in loans to domestic and foreign banks from 2007 to 2010, far more than Congress authorized Treasury to spend under TARP."

ABC News reports concerning a government subsidized solar company: "A California solar panel manufacturer which President Obama had made the poster child of his effort to expand the green economy and grow jobs has filed for bankruptcy..." NBC News is calling the bankruptcy filing a "disaster for Obama".
CNN's Wolf Blitzer says Barack Obama's upcoming "jobs speech" is a make or break point in his re-election bid. If the solar company bankruptcy is a foreshadowing of things to come, perhaps the speech could break him. Watch this classic speech by the liberal one term president Jimmy Carter. Carter recommends that the Federal government spend a "lot of money" on solar energy.
The Question evolution! campaign is sparking discussion on the internet when it comes to the creation vs. evolution issue. A post at the popular website Sodahead got over 150 comments in a few days.

In the first 945 days if his presidency, Barack Obama has piled debt on the backs of American taxpayers at 3 times the rate of George W. Bush and America has nothing to show for it. CBS News says Obama has increased the amount of government debt faster than any president in U.S. history.
Christine Lagarde, the International Monetary Fund’s new chief, set off tremors this weekend with warnings that "the global financial system is on very thin ice and vulnerable to the slightest shock."

Liberal Connecticut -- a big supporter of the rationing of energy based on the global warming hoax -- now has 700,000 residences stranded without power "for days and some for as long as a week," according to its Democratic governor.  How many lives will be harmed by that lack of plentiful energy?
Although India's GNP growth is still impressive compared to many countries, India's economy is slowing amid anger about corruption.

Financial analyst Gary Dorsch publishes an article entitled Gold Eyes $2,000 /oz – Is it a Bubble Ready to Burst?.
Ron Paul makes a simple observation: FEMA can't bail people out, and States should handle their own emergency response. And liberals act as if he wants people to die of starvation, exposure, or both. Maybe what people should do is prepare to respond without government.

Liberal indoctrination in public schools in Florida is becoming more difficult: a new law requires students to take at least one online course to graduate, and over 100,000 students are enrolled in online schools.  Liberals cannot censor conservative ideas on the internet

On the other hand, The Buffalo News which is owned by Buffett's holding company Berkshire Hathaway, savagely attacks Obama as inept, not serious in tackling America's problems, disinterested in learning and also they also declare Obama is out of touch and oblivious to America's problems.
The Buffalo News is located in liberal New York State! Et tu, liberal New Yorkers?

The Weekly Standard writes in an article entitled Obama Has No Clue What To Do With Himself: "By complaining that the political system is broken, the president is admitting that he cannot fix it! This is no way for Obama to climb back to political relevance. After all, if the president admits that he has failed to fix Washington, then why should voters keep him around for another four years?"
The Associated Press reports: "About a dozen trade unions plan to sit out the 2012 Democratic convention because they're angry that it's being held in a right-to-work state and frustrated that Democrats haven't done enough to create jobs."
