What if you gave a war and nobody came? The Palestinians and the Syrians must have found that out. Their first-ever "Naksa Day" protest fizzled out, even with Syria staging the scene.[161]

This weekend the first World Atheist Convention in Dublin reportedly draws ... only about 350 attendees. [162] That's less than 1% of the attendance at the March for Life on a cold day in January.

Texas brings up TSA bill for another shot. They should. The TSA regimen is not necessary.[163]

"Facebook post leads to real life brawl, two punches and a trip to the emergency room in Flint." [164] Isn't "social media" wonderful???

After wasting their college years on liberal professors, clueless students are amazed that they have a ton of debt and no good job opportunities. "Not surprisingly, given ... a widespread lack of academic rigor, about a third of students failed to demonstrate significant gains in critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing ability." [165]

Why are things not made in America anymore? What can ordinary people do about it? Find out:[166]

Number 14 on the New York Times non-fiction bestseller list this week: WorldNetDaily and Jerome Corsi's book asking for Barack Obama's real birth certificate. [167]

The real risk of government debt default has nothing to do with the debt ceiling. It has to do with war breaking out in the Middle East.[168]

The June 13th presidential debate in New Hampshire is finalized, and our ranking of their likelihoods of winning the nomination is as follows:

More liberal claptrap from Hollywood, this time Richard Gere declaring that Obama has "done an extraordinary job." [169]

"Bahrain police fire at protesters marching toward landmark square after emergency rule lifted Bahraini police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters marching toward the landmark Pearl Square in the country’s capital Friday .... Witnesses in the tiny island kingdom said there were no immediate reports of casualties among the hundreds of opposition supporters who took their grievances to the streets for the first time since martial law was imposed more than two months ago." [170]

Tennessee State Rep. Jeremy Faison points out that there is mountains of evidence supporting the creation view and he also points out that an evolutionist was playing word games concerning the meaning of the word evolution.[171] Evolutionists love to engage in equivocation.[172]

Another defeat for liberal censorship: Federal appeals panel overrules graduation prayer ban ruling issued by Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery. [173]

"The House of Representatives voted Friday to rebuke President Obama for continuing to maintain an American role in NATO operations in Libya without the express consent of Congress, and directed the administration to provide detailed information about the cost and objectives of the American role in the conflict." [174]

Sarah Palin speaking from Bunker Hill about Republican front runner Mitt Romney's state health plan, "Any mandate coming from government is not a good thing." [175] Today, Romney said he believes that humans are somewhat responsible for climate change. [176] Will this affect Romney's 2012 Presidential aspirations?

"Doctor" Jack Kevorkian, the man who demanded assisted-suicide, dies: [177]

With his death it should be noted that his actions on assisted-suicide have their origins with eugenics, social-Darwinism and Nazi Germany. [178]

Federal judge tosses out the First Amendment: [179]

The race is on to build the perfect replica of Noah's Ark. One replica will float up the Thames River to London for the 2012 Olympic Games. The other will open for walk-throughs in northern Kentucky in 2014.[180]

Economy worsens as liberals continue their failed policies: "May jobs report: Hiring slows, unemployment rises." [181]

House Democrats urge Obama to continue spending more money than the government has. [183]

The Tea Party movement will never die. One special election proves nothing, especially when a career politician goes down.[184]

Creation Ministries International comments on the dubious claims and tactics of old earther Hugh Ross.[185]

"NPR Host Decries 'Fairness Bias,'" and criticizes giving "'equal time to those who dispute say, global warming ....'" [186]

The Middle East is about to boil over. For the first time, the Palestinians are going to protest losing the Six Day War, this after Jews prayed on the Temple Mount for the first time in decades.[187] Also: the head of the Temple Institute of Jerusalem tells Barack Obama to mind his own business.[188]

Limousine liberals: The number of government-owned limos has soared 73% under Obama. Government spending continues marching higher as taxpayers are on the hook for vehicles that get 8 miles per gallon. [189]

When a ranking Democrat played the McCarthyism card, conservative Steve King called his bluff, leaving the Democrat unable to back up his statement on the House Floor. [190]

Mitt Romney announces shortly after noon today: he's running for the presidential election 2012. [191]

College Republicans and Let Freedom Ring have started a national campaign asking Obama "Where's your plan?"
The broken entitlement called Medicare needs reform and Republicans have offered a plan. Obama and Democrats have a strategy of scaring Americans from the GOP solution while offering no plan of their own. [192]

A radical proposal for school choice: do it yourself! A Tea Party activist has a plan.[193]

Just published on the internet: A scientist who received NASA funding for his geological research declares: "The strong weight of evidence is that there was a massive catastrophe, corresponding to the Genesis Flood, which involved large and rapid continental movements." [194] Put that in your pipe and smoke it Glenn Morton and fellow old earthers!

The Obama Administration declares that Indiana's law ending its mandatory public funding of abortion providers is somehow "illegal" - and liberals pretend that they are tolerant??? [195]
Indiana has been ranked #2 in the nation here for pro-life legislation this year.

Liberty, federalism, and the conservative statesman—an insightful essay.[196]

Chris Christie is still a global warming alarmist. His remarks when he pulled out of a cap-and-trade pact show it.[197]

Criminal complaint filed with the FBI, charging the birth certificate released by the White House on April 27 was created via an Adobe computer program for Obama's benefit. "I have irrefutably proven that the Certificate of Live Birth that President Obama presented to the world on April 27, 2011, is a fraudulently created document put together using the Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator programs, and the creation of this forgery of a public document constitutes a class B felony in Hawaii and multiple violations under U.S. Code section Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 47, Sec.1028, and therefore an impeachable offense." [198]

A congressman declines the invitation to listen to liberal claptrap at the White House today: "I don't intend to spend my morning being lectured to by a president whose failed policies have put our children and grandchildren in a huge burden of debt," he said. [199]

Conservative Jim DeMint improves his ranking to #10 in likelihood of winning the Republican nomination for president on reports that he's considering entering the race. [200]

Creation Ministries International publishes an article on Ludwig Wittgenstein who was one the greatest philosophers of the 20th Century and he was a Darwin doubter as well. [201]

318 Congressmen -- including all the Republicans and even 82 Democrats -- VOTED AGAINST raising the debt ceiling. [202] Liberals are stunned by the landslide margin of 318-97!

What about the next vote? The TEA Party movement is watching.[203] Michele Bachmann has already said: Do not raise the debt ceiling under any circumstances. Will enough other Republicans follow her lead?

Arabs wage a PR war against Israel. Israel can fight back only with the truth.[204]

Barack Obama flubs Memorial Day speech. It's his highest honor to serve as commander-in-chief of " of the finest fighting forces the world has ever known." A typical memorial speech however America IS the finest military in the world. There isn't a single country that even comes close. [205]

Trend forecaster Gerald Celente says social protests will spread in Europe this summer and will go global by winter.[206]

Europe at the economic abyss, US housing in the abyss; Who is to blame?[207] Financial analyst Max Keiser believes the US housing price collapse is far from over.[208]

Will Obama/Bernanke zombies continue to clutch their "Obama blankies" or will they finally wise up and see that Obama the community organizer and his loyal henchman Ben Bernanke are clueless about economics?

Thank liberal economics: "Home prices plunge by 4.2 percent, threatening economic recovery." [209] In 2010, they fell by another 5.1 percent.

The conservative state of Texas outperforms the liberal state of California when it comes to jobs. Newsweek reports: "Since 2001...the state has gained more than 730,000 jobs. In contrast, California, Texas’s antithesis in political culture ... has lost more than 600,000 jobs in the same period."[210] Many liberals don't understand business as it typically involves exercising common sense and often requires hard work.

Utah recognizes gold and silver coins as legal tender. What's more, merchants may value the coins by their weight, not mere face value. The gold standard has arrived.[211]

A recent Gallup poll shows active-duty and retired military giving Obama low marks...and it's getting lower.[212]

A Palestinian state would violate international law. Besides, Arab residents of East Jerusalem do not want it. But is Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel pushing it anyway?[213]

"Two French lawyers said they planned to initiate legal proceedings against French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Monday for crimes against humanity over the NATO-led military campaign in Libya... Dumas, a former French minister, said the NATO mission, which was meant to protect civilians, was in fact killing them." [214] How many do they have to kill to wake up the great American people?

More economic facts which appear to make Obama re-election unlikely: 50 facts every American should know about the U.S. economy heading in a downward spiral. [215] 20 questions to ask someone who believes the U.S. financial crises is over. [216]

Larry Sabato, an elections expert at the University of Virginia, points out that the United States economic growth rate is an anemic 1.8% and well below the 3% that presidential candidates usually need for re-election. Sabato believes that if Republicans pick a respectable candidate they will probably win. [217] Obama's political base appears to be lukewarm concerning working for Obama's re-election. [218]

"Who cares in the Middle East what Obama says? President Obama has shown himself to be weak in his dealings with the Middle East, says Robert Fisk, and the Arab world is turning its back with contempt. Its future will be shaped without American influence." [219]

"Awkward Moment During Obama Toast to Queen. The president and the orchestra at Buckingham Palace Tuesday evening were a bit out of sync." [220] Obama paused -- as he might do in waiting for the teleprompter to tell him what to say -- but the orchestra took the pause as a cue.

When the President travels on campaign, the public supports that. Those who tout public funding of campaigns (with tax dollars) don't mention that, do they?[221]

The term "duh science" was first coined by the offbeat LA Weekly on Jan. 14, 2000 (p.12) in mockery of a story in the LA Times: "on January 5 we sat down to the front-page Column One feature hungry for substance. ... Times medical writer Terence Monmaney informed us that ... pessimism can lead to depression. 'From what I'm able to figure out, pessimistic people are in bad moods,' psychologist Christopher Peterson, the lead author of a 1998 study at the University of Michigan, was quoted as saying. Who knew?"
A decade later, the LA Times itself is mocking "duh science": "consider the case of Harvard sleep expert Dr. Charles Czeisler, who has spent about $3 million over the years demonstrating over and over that doctors who don't get enough sleep make mistakes on the job." [222]

Give it up, liberals: after liberal policies destroyed Michigan and caused thousands to flee the state, it will lose a congressional seat currently held by a Democrat. [223]

Water on the moon. Where did it come from? It formed when seven big rocks hit the moon. But so much water gives the lie to the theory that an asteroid hit the earth to form the moon. [224]

Always a teleprompter, and now an "autopen" too: Obama's use of an autopen to sign the Patriot Act does not seem to comply with the Constitution. [225] Let's hope he didn't date it "2008" as he did recently for his real signature! [226]

God fearing North Dakotans still appear to be outperforming Oregon atheists when it comes to having employment. [227] Please see: Are atheists smarter than the average bear?

Oregon professor says that many atheists reacting angrily to newspaper stories on religion either have "way too much time on their hands" or "something to prove" and "a competitive anger directed against persons of traditional religious faith". [228] Given that many atheists appear to be losing the battle of bulge compared to individuals who are very religious, it is not surprising that many have a "competitive anger".

Scientists find a giant shrimp—on land. How did it get there? Only the Great Flood could have put it there. [229]

Hollywood star Jeff Conaway has died -- 16 years below the life expectancy of a white American male -- after years of "innumerable drug problems" which included "struggling with addictions to cocaine and alcohol." [230]

Abortion promoter NARAL's web campaign overtaken by Pro-life posts. NARAL asked their members to take pictures of themselves holding signs in support of abortion. What they didn't count on was Pro-lifers dominating the uploads. [231] [232]

Let's be Frank! How did your companion get a job at Fannie Mae? More than that: how does such a man get re-elected and re-re-elected? He is a poster boy for term limits. [233]

Television is losing its relevancy, as people flock to Conservapedia for content: "Every broadcaster recorded ratings declines, with some of the biggest drops among young viewers." [234] Only content-less TV shows like the Super Bowl and American Idol are holding their TV audience.

"What Obama did to Israel. Every Arab-Israeli negotiation contains a fundamental asymmetry: Israel gives up land, which is tangible; the Arabs make promises, which are ephemeral. ... For 2 1/2 years, the Obama administration has refused to recognize and reaffirm these assurances. Then last week in his State Department speech, President Obama definitively trashed them." [235] Is this genuine antipathy or the arrogance of a blundering amateur? or a distraction movement?

Obama's assault on conservative speech: [236]

More liberal claptrap from California public schools: "Teacher Tells Kindergarteners There Are 'More Than Two Genders.'" [237]

Desperate Democrat Senators are acting like Communist rulers over abortion funding. In the wake of Indiana cutting off abortion funds, they threaten penalties to force states to fund Planned Parenthood. [238]

Gold and silver are still cheap, but for how long? With the Middle East going critical, it's time to look for objective stores of value. [239]

"Saudi Arabia Scrambles to Limit Region’s Upheaval Saudi Arabia is flexing its financial and diplomatic might across the Middle East in a wide-ranging bid to contain the tide of change, shield fellow monarchs from popular discontent and avert the overthrow of any more leaders struggling to calm turbulent republics... In Libya, after helping push through an Arab League request for international intervention, Saudi Arabia sat out and left its neighbors, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, to join the military coalition supporting the rebels. It has so far kept its distance publicly from Tunisia as well, although it gave refuge to its ousted president, Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali." [240]

The Christian Post recently released an interesting article commenting on the illogical "thinking" of atheist Richard Dawkins. [241]

It took the Obama Administration two months to replace the spokesman for the State Department, after he was abruptly forced out for causing a mild embarrassment to Obama. [242] So much for frank, candid discussion!

Israel and Hamas: who has the better standard of law? Judge the two standards, and you can judge their claims. [243]

Barack Obama’s 2012 budget proposal fails to gain support from any Senator and goes down in flames 0-97. [244] Bonus: comments from Democrats when it was introduced in February.

Computer error: Over 1500 prisoners released in California. This is not part of the 33,000 to 45,000 law breakers ordered to be released due to overcrowding. [245]

Hamas gains an open border with Egypt. With Americans buying plane tickets to Jerusalem, this is not good. [246]

Scientific stupidity at work: Just what kind of scientific benefit can the National Science Foundation claim in justifying hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars for "Jell-O wrestling" at the South Pole? [247]

Many atheists in the Western World appear to have a goal in life.[248] Of course, atheism having a reputation for cowardice, certainly doesn't help them achieve their goal.

Republicans fear more United States federal debt, Democrats fear U.S. federal debt default.[249]

On a related note, Conservapedia recently published its article on cowardice which will certainly greatly delight many atheists and evolutionists (see also: Creation scientists tend to win the creation vs. evolution debates).

Barney Frank knocked on his Fannie! The Massachusetts representative admits he helped his lover get a job at Fannie Mac: [250]

File under "Puh'lese!" A Senate report cites billions of taxpayer dollars wasted by the National Science Foundation. Criticizing the report NSF Public Affairs Director Dana Topousis said that the foundation is "renowned for its gold-standard approach to peer review," and its discoveries have "advanced the frontiers of science and engineering, improved Americans' lives, and provided the foundations for countless new industries and jobs." Oh really? $1.5 million for a robot that can fold a towel? $2 million to look at Flickr pics? $144,000 for a romantic fling for two? Alcohol? Video games? Crustaceans in the gym? [251]

Israel takes a lot of criticism from the Mainstream Media. No surprise there. But the Israeli public aren't buying it anymore. Nor should they. [252]

"Political science professor Joseph E. Uscinski ... said ... the overwhelmingly liberal academic community consistently ranks Republican presidents about 10 spots lower than the public would. 'I don’t think anyone is surprised,' Mr. Uscinski told The Washington Times. 'Among the political scientists and historians that I work with, Democrats outnumber Republicans 8 to 1.'" [253]

Public school district may ban homework over weekends and holidays! [254] Perhaps this would prevent parents -- who have more time then to review their kids' assignments -- from seeing all the liberal claptrap being taught.

Harry Reid is upset. His dear government coworker, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, has been treated wrong by Republican David Vitter. Salazar earns only $180,000. a year salary and Harry Reid wants to give him a $19,000. raise but Vitter stands in the way. As the whole nation suffers from a higher cost of living, a lack of jobs, cutbacks and declining government revenue, Harry Reid wants to spend more money on his buddies. [255]

"Obama and Cameron must break this addiction to war. ... All Obama promised, in cleansing the west's reputation, in restoring disengagement and reversing Washington's image as an overbearing bully, has been vitiated by surges, drone missiles and the kneejerk attack on Libya. That the top item at a summit between Britain and America should be how to bomb a north African state that threatens neither of them is absurd." [256]

Is Obama more loyal to the United Nations than to the United States? His speech in the United Kingdom mentions Libya, where he's already overstayed his War Powers limit. Maybe he thinks that those UN Resolutions are all the authority he needs. [257]

New study confirms that playing violent video games damages the brain and makes it less sensitive to actual violence. [258] Does this surprise anyone???

Israel did not steal any land; they bought it. The first land purchases go back thousands of years ago. More recently, the Jews bought it back. [259]

The combination of vote-splitting and an unpopular Medicare voucher proposal by Paul Ryan causes a surprising loss of an open New York congressional seat to a Democrat. [260] Looks like Paul Ryan and the Fox News Channel owe Newt Gingrich an apology, as Newt warned against this weeks ago.

Pat Buchanan, who has never been very sympathetic to Israel, recognizes that Benjamin Netanyahu "smacked-down" Barack Obama and thoroughly and publicly humiliated him. [261] Netanyahu may be betting that Obama will not be re-elected - especially with a weakened Jewish voter base in Florida, a must-win State for Obama.

Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel makes a stand-up speech to Congress. He makes a counter-offer to Palestine, and already they are walking away. [262]

In a remarkable ruling, the New Jersey Supreme Court orders by a narrow 3-2 margin that Governor Chris Christie must spend $500 million more on some public schools. [263]

Another Democratic politician is hired by a liberal college faculty: "Daley taking public policy post at" the University of Chicago. [264]

The Obama Israel policy has Chicago roots. Find out here. [265]

Will warring atheist/evolutionist camps soon appear on the Jerry Springer show? Volley of insults hurled against the National Center for Science Education by the New Atheist camp. [266]

Harold Camping comes to judgment. On his Open Forum program tonight, the man who predicted the end of the world tried—and failed—to salvage his reputation, which the world had shattered by not ending. [267]

"NATO launched its largest airstrike against Moammar Gaddafi’s regime on Tuesday morning, with at least 15 massive explosions rocking the Libyan capital. The bombings appeared concentrated on Gaddafi’s compound in Tripoli, although a government spokesman said the airstrike had targeted the headquarters of a militia force... Libyan officials have said that NATO is picking sides in a civil war and complained that strikes on Gaddafi’s Tripoli compound are attempts to assassinate the leader of a sovereign country." [268] Are these bombings helping to protect Libyan civilians?

Who says that creation science yields no useful insights or inventions? Today a Japanese company announced a new rescue vessel for tsunami-stranded families and villages, inspired by Noah's Ark.[269] By the way: Noah's Ark was real. [270]

Spain echoes the Tea Party movement, vote the ruling Socialist party out. [271] No obvious support for any particular party and the public protested nationwide against misguided policies of corrupt leaders. [272]

Why are Democratic opposition researchers looking into Chris Christie of New Jersey? He's not even running. Yet. [273]

The lead attorney for ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has expressed confidence his client will be cleared of sexual assault and attempted rape charges leveled against him by a hotel chambermaid. [274]

"Obama AIPAC speech not helpful." He changed US policy radically, and either does not know or does not care what it would do to Israel. [275]

Full-scale shipwright's concept of Noah's Ark to go up in Kentucky. Authorities there gave final approval last week. [276]

Looks like Sarah Palin is moving to conservative Arizona, where she could either run for an open U.S. Senate seat or for president. [277]

News update: An online brouhaha quickly erupted at atheist PZ Myers' blog Pharyngula after Myers made a blog post on May 16, 2011 which featured a photograph of some of his fans and 80% of them were overweight. [278]

Conservapedia's atheism and obesity article is upsetting PZ Myers' false narrative at his blog that atheists are supposedly more rational than Bible believers which simply is not true. Please see: Irreligion and superstition. Myers is an atheist though so he is used to looking foolish.
