Michael Reagan tweets, "Ron, my brother was an embarrassment to his father when he was alive and today he became an embarrassment to his mother. ... My brother seems to want [to] sell out his father to sell books." [1] (see also headline below)

"One of the Arizona shooting victims was arrested" today after apparently becoming upset when a Tea Party leader suggested that "conversations about gun control should be delayed." [2]

The latest presidential poll shows Chris Christie ahead of Barack Obama, 43-40%, while Mitt Romney is tied with him. [3] Despite Christie's denials of running, with those numbers he moves up in our ranking of likelihood of winning the nomination for president.

"Illinois sees increase in food stamp use ... there has been an increase nearly every month since the fall of 2008." [4]

Ron Reagan Jr., "who became a liberal and atheist," makes headlines again by embarrassing his father, this time by claiming he had Alzheimer's disease while in office. The truth is that President Ronald Reagan's "four White House doctors said they saw no evidence of it," and his mind demolished liberal Walter Mondale in their final 1984 debate, so what does Ron Jr.'s claim say about liberals and atheists? [5]

The United States may lose her high "AAA" credit rating if her irresponsible deficit-spending continues, according to Moody's and S&P. [6]

Today's Birthday. Philip Livingston (1716) was a successful merchant who became an American revolutionary leader in the protests against the Stamp Act and other British trade restrictions. Although he was not originally an advocate of independence, Livingston signed the Declaration of Independence and remained an active member of the Continental Congress. [7]

The lamestream media talks and talks about Jared Loughner while omitting reference to his atheism. This 2,800-word story about Loughner in the Washington Post doesn't mention his atheism even once, and also fails to discuss the prominent role video games played in Loughner's development.

The national Republican Party, coming off huge election victories but facing a $22 million debt and an internal struggle to define its identity, ousted chairman Michael Steele Friday and chose Wisconsin party chief Reince Priebus to lead in the run-up to the 2012 presidential race. [8]

As in other states, Democrats push for an expansion of gambling in Maryland. [9] Gambling hurts the poor the most.

"Thirty minutes after taking office last week, Gov. Rick Scott signed an executive order requiring his approval for any new state rules in departments under his purview." This overdue conservative halt on new regulations is facing opposition now. [10]

More people think liberal rather than conservative political rhetoric incites violence. [11]

The popular Christian YouTube channel shockofgod features Conservapedia's article on atheist Matt Dillahunty. VIDEO Shockofgod also suggests that PZ Myers and Matt Dillahunty should do a Western atheists sumo wrestling match to benefit charity and build the very first atheist hospital.

Not our fault, says the White House: "White House Says It Wasn't Responsible for Picking Rowdy Basketball Arena for Arizona Memorial Service." [12]

"No Legislation Needed in Response to Tucson Shooting," observes Republican Congressman John Campbell from California.

Six more states to join fight against ObamaCare That brings the number of states on the Florida suit to 23 and the total number of states suing to stop Obamacare at 25. [14]

With each passing day, it looks more and more like ObamaCare may ultimately prove to be Obama's Waterloo. ObamaCare certainly didn't help Obama in the November election. If a large entitlement program like ObamaCare is defeated, it could certainly help cause some political momentum for other large Federal entitlement programs to be ended or pared down as well.

Federal government continued its assault on the religious liberty of Catholic institutions. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruled that Manhattan College could not prevent faculty from unionizing on the basis that it is a religious institution. [15]

Jared Loughner's bizarre late-night postings in video game forums, under drug-inspired pseudonyms, suggested possible drug use. [18] Was he on drugs during his alleged shooting spree Saturday?

A triumphant Gov. Pat Quinn congratulated fellow Democrats early today after the Illinois Senate and House sent him a major income tax increase without a single Republican vote in favor. The bill will raise the personal income tax-rate by 67 percent and the business income tax rate by 46 percent. [20]

An emotional Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) paid tribute Wednesday to the victims of the Tucson shooting, lauding the injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) while pledging the House would "lock arms" in prayer and resolve, "Our hearts are broken, but our spirit is not." [21]

Following the death of six people and the serious injury of 20 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME) is calling on Republicans to change the name of their health care repeal legislation, "Repeal the Job Killing Health Care Law Act." "I don’t think that word is in there by accident - my Republican friends know as well as anyone the power of words to send a message." [22]

A friend of Jared Loughner tells Good Morning America: "He did not watch TV. He disliked the news. He didn't listen to political radio. He didn't take sides. He wasn't on the left. He wasn't on the right." [23]

First Latina Governor's Historic Inauguration Gets Little National News Coverage. “I think it’s quite obvious that first Latino Democrats are celebrated but first Latino Republicans are the objects of scorn,” and “The media wants the public to think of the Republican Party as an old white guy party and they’ll downplay anything that contradicts with that image.” [24]

"New York Declares Weather Emergency as Winter Storm Heads North. Eight to 16 Inches of Snow Expected in Parts of Northeast as South Struggles to Thaw Out." [25] Will Mayor Bloomberg do his job and clear the streets, instead of preaching about global warming?

Faced with the fact that Jared Loughner is an atheist, Jon Stewart instead tells his atheistic audience that Loughner was "crazy". [26] And should commentators who might influence an atheist like Loughner be blamed for what he did? Nope, claims Stewart.

Wikipedia's entry about Jared Loughner avoids any discussion of his nihilism, the highly destructive form of atheism, adding to our list of Examples of Bias in Wikipedia.

Jared Loughner's mugshot

Radical, leftist punk rock band "Anti-Flag" may have been a major inspiration to Jared Loughner (photo at right), described by his close friend as a "nihilist".
Predictably, however, members of the left claim it was speech from the right that caused Loughner's actions, and they want to control it: [27]

Democrat Congressman Robert Brady wants a ban on using language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening. The question for Brady then, would this ban be applied your fellow Democrats such as Barack Obama? Would he be prosecuted for the language he used in the videos here:[28]?

Democrat leaders have put Illinois into a $15 billion deficit. Their proposal to deal with the fiscal crisis...raise personal income taxes by 75%. [29]

Predictably, the liberal New York Times seizes the moment to demand that Congress pass gun control, and criticizes the self-defense approach taken by two congressmen who announced they will carry guns for their own protection. [30]
George Soros HighRes.jpg
But almost no politicians are demanding gun control because they know voters saw and rejected the same argument after the Columbine massacre.

Soros-funded dope lobby in damage control over shootings. [31]

"It took an entire day before someone reacted by proposing new, horrible legislation" in Congress. So writes the left-leaning Slate in repudiating legislation introduced by a Democrat in the wake of Saturday's massacre. [32]

The massacre attributed to nihilist Jared Loughner demonstrates that atheism poses the biggest threat of all to a free society.
In New Jersey, atheistic vandalism defaces the "God is" billboard outside the Lincoln Tunnel. [33]
In May 2010, shortly after a demand to remove a Cross from the Mojave National Preserve failed in a 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, atheistic vandalism broke the law by stealing and presumably destroying the Cross instead. [34]

January 16

Jared Loughner is a "nihilist", according to an interview given by a close friend who says that Loughner called him at 2am before the morning massacre. [35]

Neighborhood Research completed 556 surveys of Iowa Republican Primary voters who voted in the 2010 Republican Primary and who said their chances of participating in the 2012 caucus were "very likely" or "definite." While Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney top the GOP field, the race remains wide open although some candidates are having trouble gaining traction, particularly Gary Johnson, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich. Romney seems to have the most committed base along with Sarah Palin. Tim Pawlenty is attracting some interest. Michele Bachmann could be a wild card and maybe John Thune. [36]

The Tucson gunman had classes influenced by the Small Schools Workshop. Prior to dropping out of high school, Jared Lee Loughner attended Mountain View High School, part of Arizona's Morana Unified School District and since 2003 part of the Smaller Learning Communities, an offshoot of a group founded in part by Weather Underground William Ayers. [37] And the left wants to blame Loughner's rampage on Sarah Palin? The Tea Party? George W. Bush?

Latino Daniel Hernandez: Gabrielle Giffords' Intern May Have Saved Her. Many are praising the actions of Hernandez today, who was standing near Giffords when she was shot in the head. He had only been her intern for five days, but rushed to her side when she went down, held her head in his lap and applied consistent pressure to the wound. He is a junior at the University of Arizona and he also advised others what to do with the other wounded people while they waited for help to arrive, according to MSNBC. Hernandez had taken some first aid courses in high school but he is being hailed as heroic for his actions on Saturday.

The way that she was communicating was by grabbing my hand," Hernandez says. "I would ask her a question and she would squeeze my hand in a way to acknowledge that she was still conscious and awake and still able to hear what I was saying." [38]

Asked "why many in the United States target the entire Arab world in reference to the 9/11 terrorist attack," Hillary Clinton replied, "We have extremists in my country" and then describes as an "extremist" the 22-year-old left-wing pothead charged with Saturday's massacre. [39]

U.S. Congressman Mike Pence has introduced a bill to deny federal funding to Planned Parenthood centers across the country. [40]

Democrat Group Using Gifford’s Shooting For Fundraiser! [41]

"A blast of winter weather pushed across the South on Sunday, coating bridges and roads with snow, sleet and freezing rain and causing hundreds of flight cancellations." [42] Global warming??

A reason why liberals deny or downplay the marijuana habit of Jared Loughner: they recently pushed to legalize "medical marijuana" in Arizona. [43]

Another piece of evidence indicating that Conservapedia is correct about atheism having strong tendencies as far as being a white male club.[44] This situation is yet another case of so called liberal elitists giving lip service to diversity when it comes to their own ranks.

In addition, Conservapedia just added 8 prominent atheists to its growing list of overweight atheists. Feel free to tell us about more overweight atheists as our research about this topic is in its preliminary stage. Fat, white, male atheist men, it's time to make good on your New Years resolutions concerning weight loss! Atheists aren't doing too well on the marriageability front and you are not helping this situation!

The alleged gunman reportedly "had been rejected by the US Army after failing a drug test," yet liberals remain in denial that he had likely been on marijuana before committing his heinous crime. [45] Where are the results of a drug test on him?

The alleged gunman is "Described by Classmate as 'Left-Wing Pothead,'" but the lamestream media conceals the likelihood that he was high on drugs shortly before or during his killing rampage. [46] Instead, liberals falsely blame the Tea Party Movement.

The suspected gunman in the massacre Saturday that killed 6 and left a congresswoman in critical condition had previously been charged with a drug-related offense, and endorsed a video depicting the burning of the American flag. [47]

On the tragedy in Arizona My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today's tragic shooting in Arizona. On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice. Sarah Palin. [48]

A leftist goes on a murdering rampage and ... Sarah Palin is blamed for it: "Gabrielle Giffords' Shooting And Sarah Palin's Conscience." [49]

The suspect in the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords is a 22-year-old young mass murderer who is "left wing, quite liberal," according to a high school and college classmate, as reported by MSNBC. The murderer had publicly declared that The Communist Manifesto is one of his favorite books.

News Organizations Retract Reports Of Rep. Giffords’ Death; She Is Alive, In Surgery. After being shot “point-blank” in the head by a gunman at a public constituent event, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is alive, critical, and undergoing surgery, according to NPR. Giffords represented the 8th District of Arizona and was known as a moderate Democrat particularly involved in the border control issues. [50] President Obama has also confirmed that Judge John Roll was fatally shot today in Tucson.

"Final Tab for Pelosi’s Speakership: $5.34 Trillion in New Debt—Or $3.66 Billion Per Day." [58]

Predictably, the "Blue Dogs" have become lapdogs for the liberal agenda, as most Blue Dog Democrats just voted with Nancy Pelosi in favor of ObamaCare. But the Republicans trounced them anyway, 236-181, setting the stage for its repeal vote in the House. [59]

The Republican House of Representatives Gets To Work Introduced Legislation!

Former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney holds a commanding lead in New Hampshire in the early stages of the race for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination, according to a new survey commissioned by NH Journal and conducted by Magellan Strategies.

The New Scientist tries to reassure its atheistic audience that there must be a materialistic reason thousands of birds dropped dead in Arkansas; "fireworks ... scared the birds, causing them to collide with each other and with buildings, and drop dead to the ground." [76].
But now mass bird deaths have been found in Kentucky. [77] What explanation will be invented next?

The newly installed Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi "slams 'Obamacare,'" welcomes Wisconsin's joining of the lawsuit to overturn it, and invites additional states to join the lawsuit too. [78]

A South African educator cites Conservapedia's atheism and obesity article.[83] Apparently, there are math teachers who are able to count calories better than some atheists.

Obamacare is already killing jobs. Physicians Hospitals of America had to stop construction at 45 hospitals nationwide or they would not be able to bill Medicare for treatments. "Section 6001 of the health care law effectively bans new physician-owned hospitals from starting up, and it keeps existing ones from expanding." [84]

Liberal-run New York City has been suffocating under 50,000 tons of uncollected garbage: "Mayor Bloomberg, who has caught flak for his tone-deaf and flatfooted response to the snowstorm, vowed the cleanup of 50,000 tons of accumulated trash would be done 'hopefully in the next three or four days.'" Meanwhile, "Sanitation Department chief John Doherty says his workers deserve an 'A-plus'"! [85]

The Democrat Circle of Failure
First it was Nancy Pelosi staying on as minority leader after the shellacking November 2nd. Next it's Governor Tim Kaine. He did so well the last election cycle as DNC chairman that Obama wants him to run the 2012 election cycle. It's all good news for the GOP while it sure is embarrassing for Democrats who haven't learned a thing. [90]

Is Barack Hussein Obama a president, or is he a dictator? [91]

More than a thousand scientists have issued a report calling man-made global warming what it actually is: a fraud.

"Thousands of birds fall from the sky in Beebe," Arkansas, and government does not have a clue why. [103] Any way this can be blamed on George W. Bush??

Franz Liszt - 200th anniversary in the year 2011. Franz Liszt’s musical career took him to various European countries that were to influence his work.

Rep. Steve King (R-Ia.) vows to hold investigations into the legislation passed during the Democrats’ control of Congress. “And it's just a natural thing that people that are in charge don't want to investigate their own party."

"'Biblical' Flooding Disaster" -- the area of France and Germany combined -- swamps Australia. [107] Can someone translate that for atheists refusing to read the Bible???

South Carolina's governor-elect Nikki Haley smacks down liberal Oprah Winfrey's request. Haley’s decision to not grant Oprah the interview with murderer Susan Smith is a continued policy in South Carolina of prohibiting inmates from conducting interviews. Haley spokesman, "Ms. Smith got enough press when she killed her two children and lied about it to the country.” [108] Maybe Oprah can do an interview with Obama's mother-in-law instead?

A look back at 2010: Even rock concert fans became more conservative. "Ticket sales fell 12 per cent. And the total number of concerts was down about 3 per cent. Oof, ouch and bummer." [120] Why pay big bucks for liberal claptrap, when the greatest conservative songs are here for free?

This December has been Florida's coldest ever, breaking its prior record by far. "The cold month has come as a surprise to the federal Climate Prediction Center, which had forecast a slightly warmer-than-usual winter ...." [121] Will Al Gore make $100 million for predicting global warming anyway?

The Scam Continues: The White House To Push Global Warming Legislation. As of January 2nd, a backdoor effort by the EPA will advance to further the liberal agenda on global warming without the support of Congress. Ken Green of the American Enterprise Institute says, "They are job killers. Regulations, period -- any kind of regulation is a weight on economy."

"But thanks in large part to FIRE, the excuse that makes this possible – that they 'didn't know' that students had free speech rights – is quickly vanishing." [135][136]

In August of 2009, Conservapedia declared that Ben Bernanke, the current Chairman of the Federal Reserve, lost money in his investments and that he probably should invest in gold.[151] Since then, the price of gold has gone up approximately 40%.[152] Conservapedia should head the Federal Reserve. Our first order of business would be to abolish the Federal Reserve.

Good rule of thumb: Listen to what Ben Bernanke predicts about the United States economy and then expect the opposite to occur.Video[153][154]

"Bethlehem shines as Europe freezes." [155]

Just in time for Christmas, a case of liberal stupidity: United States Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has to write to Santa Claus to try to get him to move to New Jersey, due to global warming melting the Arctic Ocean. "Please know that I will work to mobilize the U.S. federal government to assist when you relocate. I am sure we can both agree that on a warming planet, we need to do all we can to save Christmas." [156]

Meanwhile, the good Senator is ignoring the 80% chance of snow that his state capitol of Trenton will have tomorrow!

Atlanta will see its "first white Christmas since the Chester Arthur administration" in 1882. [157] Global warming???

Balloon takes Santa on wild Utah ride. If only Santa was as good with hot air balloons as with reindeer sleighs. A man in a Santa outfit took a wild ride through Utah skies Christmas Eve when his balloon took off without a pilot. [158]

The Archbishop of Westminster declares that faith is the greatest Christmas gift, and even a British newspaper prints that message. [159]

Global warming? Many Europeans have been unable to get home for Christmas due to cold, severe weather. "Bitterly cold temperatures brought problems in Scandinavia" and "Britain's aviation regulator said it had written to several airlines about the 'unacceptable' failure to properly feed and accommodate stranded passengers." [160]

"Big crowds turned out for Christmas Eve celebrations in the West Bank town of Bethlehem." [161]

"Very religious Americans are more likely to practice healthy behaviors than those who are moderately religious or nonreligious." Gallup poll

Some additional information showing the folly of Obamunism - TownHall reports: "With a constitutional mandate to balance its budget by 2016, Germany now has an unemployment rate of 6.7% — its lowest unemployment rate in 18 years. Switzerland has long had a balanced budget requirement and currently enjoys a 4.4% unemployment rate, the lowest in Europe."[162]

German and Swiss industriousness and economic discipline triumph over Obama's profligate ways and his "spread the wealth to irresponsible bankers, unionists and delinquent mortgage borrowers" philosophy. Obama is currently driving up the national debt up further with his ill deserved Hawaii vacation.[163]

Trend forecaster Gerald Celente revises his prediction of a 2010 worldwide economic depression to a worldwide economic depression occurring in 2011.[164] Will Obama and Ben Bernanke prevent a worldwide depression from happening before the United States November 2012 elections? The future is often unpredictable, especially in these turbulent times, so don't bet the farm on it! With that being said, "Obamunism" has been a complete and utter failure. Developing additional sources of income and keeping your spending down is good advice during uncertain economic times.VIDEO

Bloomberg News just announced "Gold futures jumped to a record $1,429.40 an ounce on concern the U.S. will pump more cash into the economy and Europe’s debt woes will spread, boosting the appeal of the metal as an alternative to currencies."[165]

Conservative Michele Bachmann moves to #5 in our ranking of presidential candidates for 2012, due to her continued popularity and campaign stop in Michigan for a Republican Party candidate there. [166]

Hospital loses its Catholic affiliation after performing an abortion. Bishop Thomas Olmsted's decision sparked outrage from the ACLU, "The dioceses cannot be permitted to dictate who lives and who dies in Catholic-owned hospitals." [167] Unlike the ACLU and Planned Parenthood, the diocese believes that all people are deserving of life.

Still no room for Baby Jesus: Just as Bethlehem had no room for Jesus 2,000 years ago, today's U.S. media has no room for God this Christmas. [168]

Dan Rather sees primary challenge to President Obama; [169] others joining the Dump Obama movement include resident scholar at the Stanford University Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, who wrote, "It is not easy to consider challenging the first African-American to be elected as president of the United States. But, regrettably, I believe that the time has come to do this. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist nor have a Ph.D. in political science and sociology to see clearly that Obama has abandoned much of the base that elected him,” [170] and possibly Massachusetts liberal Rep. Michael Capuano. [171]

A U.S. Congressman called for our borders to become an "irrelevancy."

[172]

Desperate, liberal Nancy Pelosi next turns to Hollywood for advice, hoping the director of movies about dinosaurs and non-existent life in outer space can guide the Democrats. [173]

Praise the Lord, "The 111th Congress Has Adjourned For The Year." [174] That headline should read, "the 111th Congress ends," because the next session will be the 112th Congress with Republicans in control of the House.

Liberals who caused so many to flee Massachusetts now have a problem: one less congressional seat as a result, and that means a liberal incumbent has to leave too. Will it be Barney Frank? [175]

Scrooge was a liberal
Ann Coulter makes a very accurate comparison between today's modern liberal and the classic miser of A Christmas Carol. "Liberals are always indignantly accusing conservatives of claiming God is on our side. What we actually say is: We're on God's side, particularly when liberals are demanding God's banishment from the public schools, abortion on demand, and taxpayer money being spent on Jesus submerged in a jar of urine and pictures of the Virgin Mary covered with pornographic photos."[176]

"GOP Electorate Trending Conservative." [177]

Spider-Man -- one of the Greatest Conservative Movies -- has been turned into a $65 million disaster on liberal Broadway, with a senseless script, poor technical design, and a third actor injured in its performance. [178]

The Washington foreign policy establishment is growing impatient with Obama's treasury draining Afghanistan War. The Los Angeles Times reports: The "Council on Foreign Relations — the heart of the traditional foreign policy establishment — warned: 'We are mindful of the threat we face. But we are also aware of the costs of the present strategy. We cannot accept these costs unless the strategy begins to show signs of progress.'"[179]

25 signs that America may soon face a financial collapse.[180]

The Obama Administration grabs power over the internet by issuing new rules today through the FCC, and there is immediate criticism from across the political spectrum. [182]

The liberalism of National Public Radio on display for all. NPR reporter Nina Totenberg, speaking on the local D.C. program “Inside Washington,“ apologized for using the phrase ”Christmas party” while telling a story. [183]

Another liberal argument that won't work, this time by Senator Charles Schumer: "we have hard-right people who seem to be wanting to move us back to the 19th century." [184] Actually it's liberals who want more control over the internet, as in pushing the phony "net neutrality."

Republican Governor Chris Christie stands up against gun control zealots by ordering the release of Brian Aitken, who has been serving a 7-year prison sentence for having unloaded guns that he lawfully purchased in his car trunk. [185]

Newt Gingrich leads Mitt Romney among conservatives, which would cause us to adjust our ranking of presidential candidates except that Sarah Palin leads both, which makes it difficult for Gingrich to win any early primaries. [186]

Feminists turn on Progressive over Wikileaks founder rape charges. A rift has emerged on the activist left, as feminists turn on fellow progressives over the rape allegations against WikiLeaks director Julian Assange. [187]

The case of Pigford v. Glickman takes another turn. Government checks for black farmers who aren't farmers, the taxpayers picking up the billion-dollar tab, and a lawyer admitting on video that he knows of hundreds of cases of Pigford-related fraud in the state of Arkansas alone. The Obama Adminsitration states the number is ten, and the liberal lame-stream media refuses to investigate. [188]

Atheistic Canada defeats legislation that would prohibit coercive threats to force an abortion, despite violence agaonst pregnant women who want to keep their child. "Canada is the only Western country with no abortion legislation." [189]

Neocon politics, a coalition of the willing, the dictator Saddam Hussein and the resulting cost in lives lost. The world was supposed to see a democratic Iraqi state emerge that is to be an ally of the West. What we now know is that the Christian population in Iraq has been targeted for extermination, ethnic cleansing, bombings and assassinations. An estimated 1 million Christians lived in Iraq before the 2003 U.S. invasion. Less than half of that number still remain. We need to support their call for a Christian province! [190]

The lamestream media is not reporting the deadly cold temperatures in the United States, but the press in other nations is not so distorted: "Tuesday Was Coldest Day In Costa Rica In The Last 15 Years," and it is not even winter yet! [191]

Unreported by the media, the new NIV translation quietly replaced "with child" by "pregnant" in Matthew 1:18, perhaps to appease supporters of abortion. The unborn child was Jesus.

RINO Orrin Hatch ducked the vote on don't ask, don't tell, after implying earlier this year that he might support its repeal. Hatch is up for reelection in 2012 and conservatives might defeat him in his primary.

[192] Brown, Ensign and Snowe face elections in 2012, Voinovich is retiring, and Murkowski was recently defeated in her primary but then won as an Independent.

General Carl Mundy, USMC (Ret.), 30th Commandant of U.S. Marines recently wrote concerning repealing DADT:

"[T]he Military Times Newspapers revealed that ten percent of the survey population stated that if the ban on open homosexuality is lifted, they will not continue in service at the end of their terms of enlistment. Another 14 percent indicated they would consider not reenlisting. These are dramatic statements of attitudes by those in uniform that must not to be ignored....

Whatever your conclusions in this critically important matter, your ultimate decision must focus foremost on a single question: 'What do our armed forces gain – or what do they lose – from repeal of a law crafted to ensure their effectiveness in accomplishing the sole reason for which they exist?' That reason is not social reform; it is military effectiveness.”[193]

Conservapedia is not aware of any commanders/drill sergeants at Parris Island having favorable views of homosexuality.

A massive yet under-reported shift among Catholics in the House occurred with the last election: the ratio was 98 Democrats to 38 Republicans before, and now it is about 64 Democrats to 61 Republicans. [194] The reason in one word: abortion.

Leadership, Democrat-style: Senator Joe Manchin, facing reelection in two years in conservative-leaning West Virginia, ducks the controversial votes today with the excuse that "he was at a family holiday gathering ... [and] regretted missing the votes, but could not break the family obligation." [195]

The lame duck Senate votes 65-31 to repeal don't ask, don't tell, with the support of a handful of RINOs. [196] This symbolic advance for the homosexual agenda is the result of two decades of political activism. How many will really enlist now?

The American Association for the Advancement of Science warns that more realistic climate models will be less certain about their global warming predictions, and therefore be difficult to present to the public. In other words, science is going to prove the alarmists wrong, and they do not know how to spin it yet.[197]

Conservapedia has decided to give Richard Dawkins its atheist buffoon of the year award for 2010, due to his recent absurd comment about the King James Version of the Bible and his earlier evolutionary quackery concerning the human eye. [198][199]

An anti-war protest, led by Vietnam-era war protestor Daniel Ellsberg, is scheduled to take place in front of the White House this coming Thursday. The war protesters plan on chaining themselves to the White House fence.[200]

Obama's Afghanistan war presently faces falling public support in the United States: 60 percent of Americans surveyed in an ABC News/Washington Post poll out Thursday feel that the war is not worth fighting, which is up seven points since July of 2010.[201]

Liberal claptrap of the week: "Kentucky officials never saw Ark Encounter feasibility study." [202] Reality check: Noah didn't do a "feasibility study" either!

"Wasting no time taking on his own leadership, Congressman-elect Allen West is already picking a bone with House Majority Leader-elect Eric Cantor sending the message: lawmakers should have fewer days off." [203]

Museum of Modern Art opens in Qatar: Qatar's victorious bid to host the 2022 soccer World Cup has put the tiny gulf state on the map.

The works on display include those of an Iraqi artist, who has come up with a unique way of chronicling every moment of his life. [204]

Reid Pulls Controversial $1.2 Trillion Spending Bill in Favor of Short-Term Budget Fix. Despicable Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid bowing to Republican opposition to a 1,924-page $1.2 trillion spending measure packed with earmarks and pork, withdrew the bill and said he would work with Republican leaders on a smaller, short-term budget fix to avoid a looming "government shutdown". Run liberals, run! [205]
