Giant Underwater Oil Plume Lurks Beneath Gulf of Mexico. Scientists discover oil plume at least 22 miles long, 3,000 feet deep in the Gulf of Mexico, suggesting that the tens of millions of gallons of oil that leaked from a busted BP well could persist far longer than initially expected. The existence of the plume, which was concretely pinned to the blown-out well, contradicts a five-page report released August 4 by the Obama administration which claimed "a vast majority" of the BP oil spill is now completely gone. 
Anti-Abortion Activists Blast Opt-Out Insurance Clause at University of North Carolina. Anti-abortion activists are blasting the University of North Carolina decision to give students the option of dropping abortion coverage from their university-sponsored health insurance, while requiring them to still pay the full premium. There will be no price break for students who opt out of the abortion provision, the activists complain. And, despite reassurances from university officials, they say they are concerned that the insurance plan will comingle funds, essentially using the premiums paid by pro-life students to help pay for abortions.

Eye for an Eye, Spine for a Spine? Saudi judge asks hospital if it can damage convict's spine as punishment for paralyzing a man. Saudi Arabia enforces strict Islamic law and occasionally doles out punishments based on the ancient legal code of an eye-for-an-eye. 
Election 2010: Nevada Governor: Republican Brian Sandoval continues to hold a double digit lead over Democrat Rory Reid (son of the despicable Harry Reid) in Nevada’s gubernatorial election. Sandoval now picks up 52% support from Nevada voters, while Reid, continuing a downward trend, has 36% of the vote. Last month the GOP candidate and former judge held a 50% to 40% edge over Reid. 
Obamanomics: New Jobless Benefits Claims Leap to 500,000, Highest Since November, 2009! New applications for unemployment insurance reached the half-million mark last week for the first time since November, 2009 a sign that employers are cutting jobs again as the "recovery" slows. 
The new Pew Research survey reports a sharp increase in the number of Americans who say President Obama is a Muslim. The increase has occurred over the last couple of years, and the poll was taken before the president stepped into the fray over the Ground Zero mosque controversy. According to the survey, nearly one in five Americans (18%) say Obama is a Muslim, up from 11 percent in 2009. Obama claims he is a Christian, but the number of people who say Christian when asked his religion has gone down sharply, from 51% in 2008 to 34 percent today. And 43% say they don't know what religion the president follows. 
"Math Counts" a supposed national math competition for teams and individual students in grades 6-8, will not allow homeschoolers to form teams and compete thanks to a unanimous decision by their board of directors. 
White House Directive: Erect Signs at All Stimulus Projects as ‘Symbol of President Obama’s Commitment to American People’. Federal contractors receiving money for projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)—the $862 billion economic stimulus law President Barack Obama signed in February 2009—have been encouraged and, in some cases, required by the administration to post signs that say their work is funded by that specific act. The law itself does not require the signs. The program sprung from a March 2009 directive issued by the Office of Management and Budget in the Obama White House. 
More Liberal Judge Craziness: The 14 crosses erected along Utah roads to commemorate fallen state Highway Patrol troopers convey a state preference for Christianity and are a violation of the U.S. Constitution, a federal appeals court said Wednesday. A three-judge panel from Denver's 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in its 38-page ruling that a "reasonable observer" would conclude that the state and the Utah Highway Patrol were endorsing Christianity with the cross memorials. "This may lead the reasonable observer to fear that Christians are likely to receive preferential treatment from the UHP," the justices wrote. What? 
Associated Press Poll: Barack Obama Hits New Low on Handling of the Economy. President Barack Obama earned his lowest marks ever on his handling of the economy in a new Associated Press-GfK poll, which also found that an overwhelming majority of Americans now describe the nation's financial outlook as poor. Eleven weeks before the Nov. 2 balloting, just 41% of those surveyed approve of the president's performance on the economy, down from 44% in April, while 56% disapprove. And 61 percent say the economy has gotten worse or stayed the same on Obama's watch.
Obama is suffering in other areas, too. Just 34 percent now call him an above average or outstanding president, down from 42 percent in January. And 28 percent call him average, while 38 percent say he's even worse. Americans can take heart with the nearness of Obamageddon.

Body of Abducted Mexican Mayor Found Bound, Dumped by Roadside. Police have found the body of a Mexican mayor days after he was abducted at gunpoint from his home in northern Mexico, El Norte reported Wednesday. Edelmiro Cavazos, the Mayor of Santiago, was seized from his home on Sunday. His corpse was located by Mexican security sources on a remote rural road near the northeastern city Monterrey. Local media have blamed the kidnapping on drug gangs. Santiago, a town that forms part of metropolitan Monterrey, has recently suffered a surge in violence which cops blame on warring cartels. 
The British newspaper The Telegraph recently released an interesting article entitled The New Atheism is 'Bolshevism for the Home Counties' – the day Peter Hitchens glimpsed hell. On a related note, Conservapedia just released a new article entitled Resources for leaving atheism and becoming a Christian.
Public Schools Battle Over Religious Holidays. As an increasing number of U.S. public schools adjust their calendars to observe Muslim holidays, a debate is growing over how far schools should go to accommodate minority religious populations — and where they should stop. Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Cal Thomas says he doesn't see Christian students getting similar accommodations around the country. "It is instructive to me that schools are going out of their way to discriminate against Christians by denying them the right to voluntarily pray with coaches and other players before games, but those same schools bend over backwards to accommodate Muslim student athletes for Ramadan," Thomas told FoxNews.com. 
Google celebrates the 90th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment on its front page.  Of course, Google chooses to post this instead of remembering the lives lost to the atom bomb we dropped on Hiroshima, which happened 65 years ago. 
Bizzaro Nancy Pelosi World: Pelosi Calls for Probe of Mosque Foes.
The obviously overly-tired House Speaker suggests a coordinated effort may be at work behind the opposition to a proposed mosque near Ground Zero, saying the dispute has been 'ginned up' for political purposes. "There is no question that there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some," the liberal Pelosi said in remarks posted Tuesday in a video on the San Francisco Chronicle website, "And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded."
A Republican aide ridiculed Pelosi's claim that there was a "conspiracy" to oppose the project. "If the speaker needs help finding the heart of the 'GOP GZM Conspiracy,' I urge her to ask Sasquatch," the aide told Fox News. "His office is behind the black helicopter hangar between the Unicorn pen and the leprechaun's pot of gold." 
Shortly after midnight tonight (ET) the mathematics establishment will confirm its sell-out to liberals by giving its once-coveted Fields Medal based on politics rather than merit. Expect no one in a university program to criticize this.
US Appeals Court Panel: Law Against Faking Receipt Of Medal of Honor Is Unconstitutional !
A panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with a faker in a 2-1 decision Tuesday, agreeing that the law was a violation of his free-speech rights. The majority said there's no evidence that such lies harm anybody, and there's no compelling reason for the government to ban such lies. Duty, honor and country have no room in the liberal world of some federal judges.... 
The calm before the liberal claptrap: all is quiet less than 48 hours before liberals award the Fields Medal -- once based purely on merit -- to less-than-the-best mathematicians for political reasons. Once a woman and a communist-trained professor are announced as the winners on Thursday, expect a torrent of nonsensical tributes and analysis by the lamestream media.
Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich Found Guilty of Lying to Federal Investigators. After two weeks of deliberations and millions of taxpayer dollars spent, the jury finds the former Illinois governor guilty on one count of lying to federal agents as judge declares mistrial on other 23 counts. 
Greek Orthodox Church Destroyed On 9/11 Asks 'What About Us?' Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America accuses New York City officials of turning their backs on the reconstruction of the only church destroyed during the terror attacks, while the controversial Ground Zero Mosque moves forward. "I don't understand it," former New York Governor George Pataki said. "Why the Port Authority now has so far put roadblocks in the way of its reconstruction is beyond me. It's not the right thing to do." 
Clock Ticking on Iran Joining Nuke Club — and Israeli Attack? Israel has until the weekend to launch a military strike on Iran's Bushehr nuclear reactor before the risk of harmful radiation becomes too great, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton says. 
Under Threat From Mexican Drug Cartels, Reporters Go Silent.
A new word has been written into the lexicon of Mexico's drug war: narco-censorship. It's when reporters and editors are forced to write what the traffickers want them to, or simply refrain from publishing the whole truth in a country where members of the press have been intimidated, kidnapped and killed. That big shootout near a Reynosa mall? Convoys of gunmen whizzed through the streets and fired on each other for hours. But you won't read about it in Reynosa. 
Professional Politicians: Give It Up! Just 37% Of Voters Say Their Congress Member Deserves Reelection. Just 27% of Likely U.S. Voters think their representative in Congress is the best possible person for the job, down six points from November of last year. Only 37% think their local congressional representative deserves reelection, compared to 42% who felt that way last fall. Those who thought the "ignorant voter" would buy into Socialism like Obamacare and bailouts were wrong. 
Professor Andrew Hacker (real name) observes that many colleges are no longer worth the price: "$200,000 over a four-year span? That's what tuition, fees, room, and board are costing at colleges like Kenyon ($50,400), Reed ($51,850), and Bowdoin ($52,880)." 
Conservapedia responds to the Hacker: we agree because $200k is too much to pay for liberal claptrap.
Federal Court Blocks Gay Marriage in California Pending Appeal. Same-sex weddings are on hold indefinitely after a federal court blocks the unions while it considers the constitutionality of the state's gay marriage ban. 
Conservapedia exclusive: this Thursday liberals will likely give the coveted Fields Medal -- math's highest honor -- to an underachieving woman and to a communist-trained mathematician from Vietnam. Is the lamestream media holding back stories about this to create a bigger splash on Thursday?
"U.S. Border Patrol has pulled back from parts of the border ... because manning those areas has become too dangerous." 
Break in the Chain: Pathetic and Desperate, Harry Reid Goes Against Obama on Mosque.
Locked in a tight re-election race, Nevada Senator Harry Reid became the highest profile Democrat to respond to Obama, who last week backed the right for the developers to build a mosque near Ground Zero. Since his comments Friday, the Democratic president and his aides have worked to explain the statement, which drew criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike. Sharron Angle, Reid's opponent, said Muslims have the right to worship anywhere, but Obama's support for construction of the mosque at ground zero "ignored the wishes of the American people, this time at the expense of victims of 9/11 and their families." 
A new video emerges of a townhall meeting with Democrat Melissa Bean (D-IL) using intimidation tactics on her constituents who want their questions answered. She wants to control the conversation and talks about credit cards. Her constituents want to know about Obamacare and small business taxes. A charade ensues. 
Exciting news concerning Christian internet evangelism. Global Media Outreach, an arm of Campus Crusade for Christ International, is combining forces with Joni and Friends International Disability Center to recruit Christians with disabilities who would like to spread the gospel and minister to others via the internet. By combining forces with Joni and Friends, Global Media Outreach benefits by having access to some 650 million people with disabilities worldwide.
On a related note, CreationWiki has developed an exciting resource for Christian video evangelism which shows people how to gain a wider audience and also how to thwart atheist cyberbullies at YouTube. Conservapedia plans on telling Global Media Outreach about the exciting new CreationWiki resource.
Tea Partiers Take Over Stretch of Arizona - Mexico Border. Tea party activists supporting Arizona's 2010 Immigration Act were rallying along a remote stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border about 70 miles west of Nogales in support of the law that a judge put mostly on hold last month. Demonstrators attached hundreds of U.S. flags with messages about curbing illegal immigration to the posts. Among those speaking at the rally Sunday was Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, known for his tough enforcement of immigration laws in Arizona's most populous county. 
Associated Press Poll: Independent Voters Support for Democrats Dips Sharply; Obamageddon Gaining Speed.
Independents who embraced President Barack Obama's call for change in 2008 are ready for a shift again, and that's problematic news for Liberals. That's way down from the 52 percent of independents who backed Obama over Republican Sen. John McCain two years ago, and the 49% to 41% edge by which they preferred Democratic candidates for the House in that election, according to exit polls of voters.
Other groups that supported Obama but show far less fervor now include young whites, unmarried women, people who live in the West, people earning under $50,000 a year, college graduates and urban whites. The falloff shows that Democrats have work to do with blocs the party hoped an Obama presidency would cement into dependable supporters. There's even erosion among minorities. While 8 in 10 voted for Obama, fewer than two-thirds (6 in 10) want a Democratic Congress, and 1 in 9 don't care which party controls. 
New Battle Lines Drawn in Ground Zero Mosque Debate. President Obama's seemingly conflicting responses over the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero draw more criticism to the Obama White House, politicians on both sides of the aisle suggest, as the remark raises the prospect of another sticky election issue burden for Democrat lawmakers in November.  See Video Here.
University professors pile on against a non-professor's claim to have solved one of the millennium problems. MIT Assistant Professor Scott Aaronson declares, "Vinay Deolalikar still hasn’t retracted his P≠NP claim, but a clear consensus has emerged that the proof, as it stands, is fatally flawed." He absurdly adds, with a cite to Richard Dawkins, "the only miracle in life is that there are no miracles, neither in mathematics nor in anything else." 
But the best of the public, aided by the internet, will inevitably solve more problems than liberal colleges will - just as Grigori Perelman solved another millennium problem. The future belongs to the conservative public.
57% of Likely Voters Describe Democratic Congressional Agenda As Extremist.
The Political Class, however, has dramatically different views of the agendas of the two parties from what Mainstream voters think. Ninety-one percent (91%) of the Political Class say the Democratic agenda in Congress is in the mainstream, but 70% of Mainstream voters see that agenda as extreme.  Obamageddon, coming to a polling place near you!
California Court of Appeals Strikes Down Malls' Ban Against Youth Pastor. A three-judge panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal said Wednesday in a 43-page opinion that the mall owner's rules of conduct "are unconstitutional on their face" under the California Constitution's free speech guarantee. The case arose out of the mall's "citizen's arrest" of a 27-year-old Christian pastor, who had gone to the shopping center to talk to others about his Faith. 
Under Intense Fire, Barack Hussein Obama "Clarifies" Support for Ground Zero Mosque. President Obama now seeks to walk his comments back supporting the building of a Muslim mosque near ground zero that have ignited a political firestorm ahead of a difficult election season for Democrats. The American people see what Obama will not acknowledge; New York City will not allow a Christian church to be rebuilt near the site, but bizarrely insists on placing a Mosque where none existed. 
In April 2009, Rep. Spencer Bachus claimed there are 17 “socialists” in Congress.  Rep. James Bopp, Jr calls upon the Democrats to be truthful and honest with the American people by renaming themselves the Democrat Socialist Party.  Once again the issue is forefront with a list of 70 congressional Democrats affiliated with the Democratic Socialists of America. 
More evolutionist research is discredited, as a Harvard professor is placed on academic leave and a journal that published his work is issuing a retraction. His discredited article claimed that "tamarin monkeys could learn certain rules much as human infants do."  Why aren't other universities investigating professors as Harvard is?

Public School Settles Suit Over Anti Abortion Shirt. A Merced school district has agreed to pay $50,000 to settle a lawsuit filed on behalf of a former sixth-grade student who was asked to remove an anti-abortion T-shirt because it was deemed "disruptive" by the school's administrators. 
Barack Hussein Obama Endorses Mosque Project Near Ground Zero Site.
Obama forcefully supports controversial plan to build a mosque near the site of the former World Trade Center, saying America's founding principles demand no less. Obama made the comments at a dinner in the White House State Dining Room celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. "President Obama is wrong," said Congressman Peter King, R-N.Y. "It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of ground zero. 
The lies and deceit coming from the Obama regime is just too much for some Democrat lawmakers. Secretary Shaun Donovan of HUD talks about an improving real estate market. In a scathing reply, Democrat Representative Dennis Cardoza of California says [Donovan] has a "fundamental disconnect between the reality on the ground and the fairy dust the administration is spreading." 
Meeting Over New Black Panthers Case Turns Into Scream-Fest. A regularly scheduled "business meeting" of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights today turned into a fiery shout fest -- finger-pointing and all -- over whether the Justice Department was "stonewalling" their investigation into a controversial voting rights case, whether that investigation has been fruitful, and whether the commission can even fulfill its mission anymore. 
The Department of Homeland Security has a policy to release illegal aliens within the United States. From 2007 to 2009 the government has released 200 fugitives from terror-linked countries. Under Janet Napolitano's authority, this is just routine business as usual. Janice L. Kephart, director of National Security Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, tells Newsmax that 96 percent of all illegals detained by federal authorities are subsequently released. 
Russia's nuclear agency says that it will fuel Iran's first nuclear power plant, defying U.S. calls to hold off. So what does Barack Obama do? He plans to buy Russian-made choppers for use in Afghanistan. Obama: the paper tiger. 
Mosque Moves Forward, Yet Christian Church in Limbo. The battle raging over the Ground Zero mosque is bringing new attention to another, less publicized controversy involving a house of worship in Lower Manhattan. St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which once sat right across the street from the World Trade Center, was crushed under the weight of the collapse of Tower Two on September 11, 2001. St. Nicholas was the only church to be lost in the attacks, and nine years later, while City of New York officials are busy removing every impediment to the building of the Cordoba mosque two blocks from the site, St. Nicholas’ future remains unclear. St. Nicholas Church’s difficulty in getting approvals to rebuild stands in stark contrast to the treatment that the developers of the proposed Cordoba mosque have received. 
The excessive salaries that some members of city councils are getting in California - above and beyond what they are legally entitled to - are they coming from drug gangs whose members are predominantly illegal immigrants, and they want these politicians to look the other way? 
Want someone dead? You'll pay a heavy price if you do. In New Hampshire, State Rep. Timothy Horrigan (D) stepped down from his position, and State house candidate Keith Halloran (D) is all about the apologetics after both wanted Sarah Palin dead.  A fine example of "pro-tolerance" liberalism!

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker Doubts Gay Marriage Ban Backers Can Appeal.

"Here's a story from NowHampshire.com; it also showed up in Politico with no criticism, just some chuckles. "Local Democrats wish death upon Sarah Palin." Democrats saying publicly they wish Sarah Palin had been on the plane in Alaska that was carrying Ted Stevens. "There's only one way the tragic airplane crash in Alaska that ended the life of former US Senator Ted Stevens could have been better, according to New Hampshire Democrat activist and State Rep. candidate Keith Halloran: If Sarah Palin had been on it. In a Facebook post, Halloran, who describes himself as 'an active local citizen and supporter of NH Governor John Lynch,' said of the plane crash, "Just wish Sarah and Levi were on board."

Most Voters Say Obama, Congressional Democrats More Liberal Than They Are.
A new Rasmussen Reports national survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters say Barack Obama is more liberal than they are, and 56% say the same of the average Democratic member of Congress. A meager 12% of voters say the president is more conservative than they are, and 13% think the same of the average Democrat in Congress. Scott Rasmussen, president of Rasmussen Reports, notes that “It is remarkable how similar the response is to both the president and his party in Congress. While many in official Washington highlight the differences between the two, voters see a broadly consistent agenda.” More signs that November will bring about Obamageddon....
Professor Ajami at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies published an article in the Wall Street Journal entitled The Obsolescence of Barack Obama which mentions Obama's narcissism, his failed economic policies and the media hype surrounding his presidential run. Americans, its time to flood the White House and your senator's and congressman's offices indicating that Obama's narcissism and lack of personal responsibility is no longer acceptable. It's also time to raise more money to defeat Obama's agenda in November of 2010.
Dear Senator Reid, I’m Not Stupid!
"U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-NV) — the person who holds one of the most powerful positions in our government — a protector of the Constitution, of free speech and of tolerance — called me stupid.  Perhaps he was indicating that I’m mentally challenged or maybe that I’m just uneducated — I’m not sure. But what I do know is that his comments were a profound insult to me and every other American of Hispanic descent. View more here.
76% Of Voters Say Time for Obama to Take Responsibility, Stop Blaming Bush.
Despite more voters faulting former President Bush's policies for the country's economic woes, most American voters think it is time for President Obama to stop blaming Bush, including a majority of Democrats. Almost all voters — 88 percent — think the country is still in a recession. Less than a third of voters (29%) credit the stimulus package for keeping the country from going into a depression. Nearly two-thirds of voters (63%) believe government has gotten so big it is hurting the future of the country.

8% Of Babies in U.S. Born to Illegals! The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of polling organization Pew Research Center, finds that, of the 4.3 million babies born in 2008, roughly 340,000 were born to undocumented aliens. This is double the percentage of illegal immigrants in the U.S., owing in part to the fact that the illegal immigrant population is largely comprised of men and women at birthing age. 
This liberal RINO's ratings head south. Your ratings would plunge too if you were the mayor of New York City, who told the general public to shut up while he insisted a mosque be allowed to be built near Ground Zero, the site of the September 11, 2001 attacks:

Former Congressman Dan Rostenkowski (D-IL) died today: 
The "D" stands for "dummy." Democrats pass an aid bill for teachers, police, and firefighters to the tune of $26 billion dollars, yesterday. Obama said it was a bill already paid for. Today, it was revealed that part of the payment was provided by a raid on the Food stamp program, resulting in a loss of $12 billion dollars!  And one of those hypocritical Democrats who is now feigning outrage for the aid bill is Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Connecticut); she VOTED for it, knowing full-well that it would take money from food stamps.

U.K. Watch: Britain's advertising watchdog today banned an anti-terrorism commercial that asked people to watch out for suspicious behavior by their neighbors, including keeping curtains closed and paying for things in cash. The Advertising Standards Authority said the radio ad could cause "serious offense" to law-abiding citizens. The ad was part of a campaign for a police anti-terrorist hotline. It described a man who "likes to keep himself to himself," doesn't have a bank card and keeps his curtains closed, before advising that "this may mean nothing, but together it could all add up to you having suspicions."

Dick Morris: WHY WE NEED TO LET STATES GO BROKE.
Federal Band-Aids won’t cover the fiscal problems of such states as New York, California, Michigan and Connecticut forever.

Politically, the unions that fund and fuel the Democratic Party would be emasculated, dramatically shifting the national balance of power.

Liberals, RINOs, neocons, and conservatives are in races too close to call today in primaries in Colorado, Georgia and elsewhere.  Will $7.5 million in campaign spending plus Obama's endorsement enable incumbent Michael Bennet to overcome Bill Clinton-endorsed Andrew Romanoff?

Conservapedia: Number 1 Most Popular, On Talking Points Memo Monday night. 
Rough Road Continues for Obama on the Campaign Trail...
The president could be in danger of suffering yet another embarrassing political loss as the candidate he is backing in Colorado's Senate race — Michael Bennet is locked in a tight primary race with another Democrat, who is now leading in the polls, endorsed by....Bill Clinton! Obama's record in helping Democrats get elected isn't exactly sterling -- Democrats lost the gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia despite his help. Plus White House backing was not able to keep Pennsylvania's Arlen Specter in his seat in the Democratic primary race against Rep. Joe Sestak.

Unemployment: What Would Reagan Do?
Someone once said that we should never let a crisis go to waste. In this historic employment crisis, we have no time to waste. Rather than tear down Reaganism, our leaders in Washington should heed its lessons and unleash the private sector that alone can pull us out of our doldrums. 
Obamacare Considered As Dispassionately As Possible -- If it really will reduce costs, why has Massachusetts’s similar program led to punishing cost increases? According to a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece (The Failure of RomneyCare, March 16, 2010) :
- "One third of state residents polled by Harvard researchers in a study published in “Health Affairs” in 2008 said that their health costs had gone up as a result of the 2006 reforms. A typical family of four today faces total annual health costs of nearly $13,788, the highest in the country. Per capita spending is 27% higher than the national average."

Democratic Candidates, Under Strategists' Orders, Ignore Their Legislative "Successes". As Democrats fan out across the country to campaign for reelection this month, many are surprisingly quiet about their hard-won accomplishments — the major bills they have passed under President Obama. In an effort coordinated with the White House, congressional leaders are urging Democrats to focus less on bragging about what they have done, like the hugely unpopular "Obamacare" and more about fixing the economy. 
Mosque Used by 9/11 Terrorist Attackers Shut Down. A Hamburg mosque once frequented by some of the Sept. 11 attackers was shut down Monday because German authorities believe the prayer house was again being used as a meeting point for Islamic radicals intent upon jihad. When will Barack Obama begin to do the same? 
Boehner: End to Birthright Citizenship 'Worth Considering'. House Minority Leader John Boehner on Sunday said he's open to talks on changing the U.S. Constitution -- or at least the way it's interpreted -- so that U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants are not automatically U.S. citizens. "I think it's worth considering," Boehner said. 
Liberal Democrat Panic Attack? With the disappointingly soft jobs report for July and a faltering recovery overall, is Team Obama getting ready for some sort of new, liberal-left, Keynesian, big-bang stimulus package? Will it be desperate to "do something"? Already there are rumors of an "August surprise" in which Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac forgive underwater mortgages held by millions of Americans. And with state and local government jobs having fallen 169,000 so far this year, perhaps the Democratic Congress and the White House will seek an even bigger spending plan for teachers and Medicaid workers -- on top of the $26 billion plan that just passed the Senate. 
Kansas Governor: Brownback (R) 57%, Holland (D) 34%. There are still no surprises in Kansas' gubernatorial race, with Republican Sam Brownback continuing to hold a substantial lead over Democrat Tom Holland. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, Brownback leads Holland 45% to 39%.

Tuesday's election in Colorado will demonstrate who is running the Republicans -- the conservatives or the neoconservatives -- and who is running the Democrats -- Obama or Clinton. The polling is too close to call, and we'll be posting developments here about Ken Buck v. Jane Norton, and Michael Bennet v. Andrew Romanoff.
$800 or more a year ... just to buy the overpriced textbooks for college courses. Some clever students rely on using the same books from their college library to avoid this outrageous expense. 
The warped way of thinking of those in government. Las Vegas allows gambling, allows people to mosey about with open containers of alcohol; allows prostitution; and authorizes several pages in the phone book for "escort services". But they want to ban hula hoops as a public menace? 
Christian Medical Team Murdered, Defiled in Taliban Ambush. Ten members of the Christian medical team — six Americans, two Afghans, one German and a Briton, including three women — were gunned down in a gruesome slaughter that the Taliban said they carried out, alleging the volunteers were spying and trying to convert Muslims to Christianity. The gunmen spared an Afghan driver, who recited verses from the Islamic holy book Koran as he begged for his life. One of the dead Americans had spent about 30 years in Afghanistan, rearing three daughters and surviving both the Soviet invasion and bloody civil war of the 1990s that destroyed much of Kabul. 
Across Nation, Mosque Projects Meet Opposition. Heated confrontations have broken out in communities where mosques are proposed near far less hallowed locations than Ground Zero in New York City. In all of the recent conflicts, opponents have said their problem is Islam itself. They quote passages from the Koran and argue that even the most Americanized Muslim secretly wants to replace the Constitution with Islamic Shariah law. 
John McCain relies on Factcheck.org to defend against J.D. Hayworth's latest political ad.  But according to one blogger that site also defended Obama's use of czars and claimed ObamaCare is not government run. 
Schwarzenegger: "Let Same-Sex Weddings Resume Now". California's RINO Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who twice vetoed legislation that would have legalized same-sex marriage, has surprised gay rights supporters by urging a federal judge to allow gay couples to resume marrying in the state without further delay. With popularity polling in the mid 30's, the soon-to-be ex-Governor apparently now feels "safe" in showing his true, liberal colors. 
Interesting documentary created by lifelong Democrat Gigi Gaston describes the disenfranchising of American citizens by the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign in 2008. The film “We Will Not Be Silenced” documents voter intimidation and corruption by forces working for then-candidate Barack Obama at Democratic precinct caucuses and state conventions.

Government at work: "Multnomah County’s top elected official apologized Thursday for health inspectors who forced a 7-year-old girl to shut down her lemonade stand last week because she didn’t have a food-safety permit." 
Why not raise taxes to 100% of all income, socialize all private businesses, and put everyone on the public payroll? Doing so would eliminate unemployment and would give the government plenary power to direct everyone into behavior paths prescribed by Ivy League sociologists and Saul Alinsky-style community agitators like Barack Obama. People who don’t toe the line can be excommunicated from the American church of secular materialism and set adrift to find residence in some other country. Continue reading....
Democratic leader Howard Dean shockingly asserts on MSNBC that the requirement to buy ObamaCare insurance will be removed before it ever takes effect. Why? Because he thinks the courts may rule it to be unconstitutional, and because while in Vermont he extended insurance to all children without a mandate.  Someone please tell Dean that the elderly have far higher medical costs than children.
"They spent like $100 million, and they weren’t able to get a single Republican convert on" the global warming cap-and-trade bill," an administration official reveals. "Environmentalists went with an all-or-nothing strategy for the 111th Congress. Nothing won."
"Obama & the Neocons: the Odd Alliance" for perpetual war. That's because 41% of Democrats want the troops home immediately, and many Republicans and Independents are wondering how long Obama is going to continue to make a mess of it.

The Boiling Point: States vs. the Federal Government. Obama's poll numbers keep heading downward. The economy is still in the tank and unemployment remains sky high. And yet, Obama, Pelosi, and Reid continue on a path that runs polar opposite to the will of the people. Americans have reached the boiling point, and not only are they speaking out as individuals through marches, protests, and rallies, but state officials are also stepping up to the plate and sending a message to Obama: if you do not do the job you're supposed to do, we'll do it ourselves. 
96,000 more jobs were lost in June than the government previously reported.  Will someone at least be demoted for this colossal error?
Total nonfarm payroll employment declined by 131,000 in July, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 9.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Federal government employment fell, as 143,000 temporary workers hired for the decennial census completed their work. Private-sector payroll employment edged up by 71,000. Both the number of unemployed persons, at 14.6 million, and the unemployment rate, at 9.5 percent, were unchanged in July. 
Teachers Union Demonstrates Bizarre Detachment From Reality: Despite facing budget cuts and layoffs, Milwaukee, Wisconsin teachers fight for taxpayer-funded Viagra benefit. At least one lawmaker questioned why the union is fighting for Viagra while teachers are losing their jobs. A consultant for the school board has estimated that reinstating the drug benefit would cost $786,000 per year — the cost to keep perhaps a dozen first-year teachers employed. Liberal public school teachers are always about indulgent self-interest instead of putting the kids first.
Due to Elena Kagan's role in an escalating controversy over partial-birth abortion, Freedom Watch USA and Judicial Watch plan to file a complaint to have her disbarred from practicing and possibly subjected to criminal prosecution. 
In a statement released Friday evening, Sen. Nelson said, "I have heard concerns from Nebraskans regarding Ms. Kagan, and her lack of a judicial record makes it difficult for me to discount the concerns raised by Nebraskans, or to reach a level of comfort that these concerns are unfounded. Therefore, I will not vote to confirm Ms. Kagan’s nomination." Nelson is the only Democrat to oppose Kagan at this point. Five Republicans, on the other hand, have said they will support Kagan's nomination, giving her more than enough votes to win confirmation. 
Firms Contracting With U.S. Government Flout Iran Sanctions Law, Watchdog Says. Two multinational corporations that have earned billions of dollars in U.S. government contracts are conducting business with Iran in violation of the recently signed sanctions law, according to an Iran watchdog group that has provided its research to FoxNews.com. 
Obamanomics: U.S. economy grows at 2.4 percent pace in second quarter, weakest growth in nearly a year. Consumers spent less, companies slowed their restocking of shelves and the nation's trade deficit dragged more on the economy in the April-to-June quarter. In a separate report, the Commerce Department said the recession was deeper than previously estimated.
Conservapedia just increased the pressure on atheist and evolutionist Richard Dawkins to come clean and just admit that he can't win a debate against a scientist at Creation Ministries International nor can he win a debate against Dr. William Lane Craig. Dr. Dawkins, the Ben Stein interview in Expelled demonstrated your ideology cannot withstand cross examination.
Message to Richard Dawkins: Don't make Conservapedia keep increasing the pressure. But then again, we almost hope you do as we are having a lot of fun doing it! By the way Dr. Dawkins, the above cited articles are very well trafficked articles at Conservapedia and our entire website gets a lot of web traffic as well.
Conservapedia honors Sgt. Justin Allen, 23, of Coal Grove, Ohio who was killed July 19th during a fight with enemy forces in the Kandahar Province.  We honor the memory of the other fallen soldiers killed this past week in the Afghanistan war; Brett Linley, 29, Matthew Weikert, 29, Justus Bartett, 27, Dave Santos, 21, Chase Stanley, 21, Jesse Reed, 26, Matthew Johnson, 21, Zachary Fisher, 24, Brandon King, 23, Christopher Goeke, 23, and Sheldon Tate, 27. Prayers needed for these fine Americans.
The House adjourns for a one-month vacation today. After it reconvenes in September, its trial of Democrat Charles Rangel on 13 charges of ethics violations will begin. Nancy Pelosi declared about this growing scandal, "the political chips will have to fall where they may." 
Let conservatives point out racial problems created by the left, and they get called racists or worse; but let the President of the United States call black Americans "mongrels" - as in mixed-breed dogs - and the left says absolutely nothing:

"We need to extend unemployment compensation benefits for women like Leslie Macko, who lost her job at a fitness center last year, and has been looking for work ever since. Because she's eligible for only a few more weeks of unemployment, she's doing what she never thought she'd have to do." The woman Obama is talking did not lose her job as a result of the current economic situation, as he would like you all to believe. Try "fired for committing a felony:" 
Protests Rage as Arizona Appeals Immigration Law Ruling. Arizona asked an appeals court Thursday to lift a judge's order blocking most of the state's immigration law as the city of Phoenix filled with labor union bused-in protesters, including about 50 militants who were arrested for confronting officers in riot gear. They marched on to the office of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has made a crackdown on illegal immigration one of his signature issues. "My deputies will arrest them and put them in pink underwear," Arpaio said, referring to one of his methods of punishment for prisoners. "Count on it." 
Liberals resist giving up their own power for the good of the people. Observe the entrenched Charles Rangel, who was "charged Thursday with 13 counts of violating House ethics rules ... that set the stage for a full-blown proceeding that could take place as early as September." 
More Than 6,000 Arlington Cemetery Graves Could Be Wrong. Estimates of the number of graves potentially affected by mix-ups at Arlington National Cemetery grew to as many as 6,600 on Thursday, as the cemetery's former superintendent blamed his staff and a lack of resources for the scandal that forced his ouster. 
Poll: Immigration Laws Not Enforced by Government. Most American voters believe the federal government is failing to implement and back the country's immigration legislation. Some 35 percent of voters approve of the job President Obama is doing on immigration, while 54% disapprove. This is one of his lowest approval areas. The only area where Obama does worse is the federal deficit — just 31% approve of how he's handling that issue. 
Conservapedia was cited by the website Science Progress which is funded by the liberal "think" tank The Center for American Progress. Science Progress wrote: "I happen to be more sympathetic to Dawkins’ moral point of view than I am of those at Conservapedia, but when an idea is attacked from both sides it suggests that there is something more than meets the eye." There definitely is more than meets the eye and Conservapedia recommends its readers to read its articles atheism and morality, evolution, and atheism.
Conservapedia is in the Spanish American news. A Miami news organization which caters to Spanish Americans covers the machismo news beat and Conservapedia's essay Does Richard Dawkins have machismo? was cited by this Spanish American news organization. Conservapedia may gain additional news coverage due to Conservapedia recently expanding this essay.
Less than 100 days before the upcoming Election, the insistence by the Obama Administration on a defenseless society is causing millions to flee to ... the Tea Party Movement and the Republican Party. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has become an overnight political sensation. 
Recently, Conservapedia did some research concerning Richard Dawkins main audience. It does appear as if ladies have below average interest in Richard Dawkins. Imagine how inadequate and embarrassed Mr. Dawkins must feel. The whole world can now see that it appears as if ladies have below average interest in Richard Dawkins! Given his reluctance to debate strong debate opponents, can you blame them?
Arizona Immigration Decision Will Erode Obama Support. When liberal Judge Susan Bolton granted an injunction halting the enforcement of key provisions of the Arizona immigration enforcement law, she ruled in favor of the Justice Department’s position, but against the president’s political interest. In the long term, the Bolton decision will likely be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court and Arizona will find itself vindicated. But, in the meantime, the decision endangers the re-election chances of three Democratic Congressmen from Arizona. Their constituents will not be satisfied with statements from these Democrats supporting the Arizona law. They will become embittered because Obama’s Justice Department has overridden their will. 
Hailed by conservatives, every February 6th is officially Ronald Reagan Day. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and the former First Lady attended a ceremonial signing of a bill making it Ronald Reagan Day every Feb. 6th, Reagan's 100th birthday is 2011. "Ronald Reagan Day will allow schools to teach about Reagan and be a day in which Californians can remember his legacy." 
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer announces an expedited appeal of the ruling against key parts of its immigration law: "we will soon file an expedited appeal at the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit."
With Friends Like These, Who Needs Keith Olbermann? "While engaging in astonishing viciousness, vulgarity and violence toward Republicans, liberals accuse cheerful, law-abiding Tea Party activists of being violent racists. Responding to these vile charges, conservative television pundits think it's a great comeback to say: 'There is the fringe on both sides.' Both sides? Really? How about: 'That's a complete lie'? Did that occur to you as a possible reply to the slanderous claim that conservatives are fiery racists?"

California Fiscal Emergency Declared by Governor. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency over the state's finances today, raising pressure on lawmakers to negotiate a state budget that closes a $19 billion shortfall. In the declaration, Schwarzenegger ordered three days off without pay per month beginning in August for thousands of state employees to preserve the state's cash to pay debt obligations, and for essential services. 
SEC Says New Obama Financial Regulation Law Exempts it From Public Disclosure. So much for transparency. Under a little-noticed provision of the recently passed financial-reform legislation, the Securities and Exchange Commission no longer has to comply with virtually all requests for information releases from the public, including those filed under the Freedom of Information Act. President Obama had previously said one of the cornerstones of the sweeping new legislation was more transparent financial markets. Indeed, in touting the new law, Obama specifically said it would “increase transparency in financial dealings." So much for honesty. 
Senator John Thune, the conservative who defeated Tom Daschle, prepares to run for president. Thune is considered so politically invincible the Democrats cannot even field an opponent against him in November.  Thune moves up in our ranking of Presidential Candidates, 2012.
Obama Missing Historic Boy Scout Jamboree for Fundraisers, 'View' Taping.
President Obama will make history as the first sitting president on a daytime talk show when he visits 'The View,' and to do it he'll miss the Boy Scouts' Jamboree marking the group's 100th anniversary. In the Liberal - Socialist Obama-world, God, Country and Values have no place.

Britain’s National Health Service, Praised by Obama’s Medicare Chief, To Undergo Massive Cost-Cutting Overhaul and Decentralization. Ironically just as Barack Obama and the liberal big-spending Socialists in Congress are ramming socialized medicine down the throats of Americans, the U.K. has concluded they can no longer afford it!
The U.K. is ramping up healthcare rationing under its National Health Service (NHS). According to The Sunday Telegraph, the NHS has drawn up plans for restrictions on the most basic treatments for the sick and injured. Operations including hip and knee replacements and cataract surgery will be rationed in a new attempt to save money.
According to the report, plans also include cuts for terminally ill patients (dying cancer patients will supposedly be sent home and told to manage their own symptoms), closure of nursing homes for the elderly, cost-cutting measures in pediatric and maternity services and care of the elderly.  -  - 
Good news, bad news: The good news is that Newark's worst public schools are being turned over to a charter-like structure that will free them from the worst of the teachers' unions. The bad news is that liberal colleges, like New York University are taking their place! So one form of atheism is replaced by another, when the Bible could accomplish far more.

Dengue Fever Cases Reported in Parts of Florida. The disease, which is sometimes called "break-bone fever" for the crushing pain it inflicts, has shown up in some parts of the state, including tourist playground Key West. There also have been a handful of confirmed cases in Central Florida, in Orlando. That's enough to get health officials worried. The disease is spread by mosquitoes, and is widespread in some parts of the Caribbean and Central America. Dengue fever was once widespread throughout the Americas. The disease was almost wiped out in the 1960s, thanks to the use of the pesticide DDT against carrier mosquitoes, but DDT is no longer allowed to be used due to liberal environmental alarmism.

Boy Scouts Celebrate 100 Years!
Boy Scouts marched to celebrate 100 years of service in Washington, D.C.. The Grand Centennial parade marked the first time since 1937 that Boy Scout troops had marched through the District. The last time, President Franklin D. Roosevelt invited them to convene on the Mall for their first jamboree after a Polio outbreak led to its cancellation in 1935. The Grand Centennial parade kicked off this year's Boy Scout National Jamboree, a 10-day meeting of about 50,000 troops at Fort A.P. Hill near Fredericksburg, Maryland. Bob Mazzuca, chief scout executive for the Boy Scouts of America, said "We're part of the fabric of American society and have been for 100 years. So there's no more appropriate place to proclaim that than the Capital." 
Scorecard on Obamanomics: Democrats have been running Congress for nearly four years, and President Obama has been at the White House for 18 months, so it's not too soon to ask: How's that working out? One devastating scorecard came out Friday from the White House, in the form of its own semi-annual budget review. The message: Tax revenues are smaller, spending is greater, and the deficits are thus larger than the White House has been saying. No wonder it dumped the news on the eve of a sweltering mid-July weekend. 
Liberal Idol Oliver Stone: 'Jewish-Dominated Media' Prevents Hitler from Being Portrayed "in Context". Director Oliver Stone belittled the Holocaust during a shocking interview with The Sunday Times yesterday, claiming that America's focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the "Jewish domination of the media." The director also defended Stalin, Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the "powerful lobby" of Jews in the United States. 
Obama Lies Big Again. The Obama administration told Scottish officials last August that, although it opposed any release of the Lockerbie bomber, it would rather see him released in Scotland than transferred to a Libyan prison, according to a secret memo obtained by The Sunday Times in London. According to The Sunday Times, Scottish officials viewed U.S. resistance to the release as "half-hearted." The publication of the memo's contents comes just days after President Obama, at a press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron, said "all of us ... were surprised, disappointed and angry" by the Scottish government's decision to free Abdel Baset al-Megrahi last year. 
Massive Leak Provides Unprecedented View of Afghan War. Shocking in scope if not in content, the leak of 91,000 classified U.S. records on the Afghanistan War by the whistle-blower website Wikileaks.org is one of the largest unauthorized disclosures in military history. The documents cover much of what the public already knows about the troubled nine-year conflict: U.S. spec-ops forces have targeted terrorists without trial, Afghans have been killed by accident, and U.S. officials have been infuriated by alleged Pakistani intelligence cooperation with the very insurgent groups bent on killing Americans. What price, treason?

Taxes Jump In Importance, But Economy Still The Main Issue on Voters’ Minds. The number of U.S. Voters (68%) who view the issue of Taxes as "Very Important" has jumped 10 points from May to its highest level ever. Still, Taxes rank fourth on a list of 10 issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. The economy (85%), government ethics and corruption (72%), and health care (70%) are the top three issues. Voters trust Republicans more than Democrats on nine out of the 10 key issues. On the issue of taxes, voters trust Republicans over Democrats, 52% to 36%. On the economy, Republicans are also trusted more, 48% to 39%. But voters are not sure which party to trust when it comes to government ethics and corruption. 
61% of voters nationwide now expect the cost of health care to go up under the new Obamacare law, the highest level of pessimism measured since the law was passed in March. Most want Obamacare repealed.

C. Everett Koop, the former Surgeon General, urges defeat of Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court in an open letter to the American people. He wrote, "I was deeply disturbed to learn the Elena Kagan, the nominee for Supreme Court scheduled for a Senate committee vote next week, manipulated the medical policy statement on partial-birth abortion of a major medical organization, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) in January 1997."
Top Secret U.K. Agency Pinpoints Terrorists for U.S. Drone Strikes. A British spy agency uses its technology to locate the hiding places of al Qaeda and Taliban chiefs, providing America with critical information used to carry out controversial 'targeted killings' by drones. GCHQ, the top secret U.K. communications agency, has used telephone intercepts to provide the Americans with “locational intelligence” on leading terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan, an official briefed on its operations said.
