NYT Critic Accuses Author of Limbaugh Biography of 'Stockholm Syndrome'. Why? Evidently for failing to trash Limbaugh as much as the Times apparently wanted him bashed. [1]

The Liberal New York Times Frets About Aftermath of Climate-Gate In Britain. A survey in February by the BBC found that only 26 percent of Britons believed that “climate change is happening and is now established as largely manmade,” down from 41% in November 2009. Maybe the Times should remember the immortal words of P.T. Barnum? [2]

Giant oil plumes from the oil spill suffocating life in the Gulf of Mexico. One plume is measured 10 miles long, 3 miles wide and 300 feet thick. Scientists now estimate 25,000 to 80,000 barrels daily are leaking into the Gulf despite the Obama administration's claim of only 5,000 barrels a day. [3]

Paychecks from private business shrank to their smallest share of personal income in U.S. history during the first quarter of this year. At the same time, government-provided benefits — from Social Security, unemployment insurance, food stamps and other programs — rose to a record high during the first three months of 2010. [4]

View the oral argument live today at 10 am (ET) before the New Jersey Supreme Court on the power of the people to recall U.S. Senators here.

Creation Ministries International recently featured an excellent article concerning why modern Western world atheism is a religion.[5]

Another example of Liberal stupidity: Let's vote FOR the presence of illegals in this country, and let's make sure they drive on the streets without a license, drive drunk...and rear-end the Democratic, liberal state legislator who actually VOTED to make sure it happened in his state: [6][7][8][9]

Census Sends Criminals Door-to-Door. Alabama Senator Richard Shelby slams Census Bureau after sex offender, alleged rapist hired to collect personal info. [10]

As sought by conservative groups, "U.S. Supreme Court Grants Review in Major School Choice Case from Arizona." [11]

Conservapedia recently significantly revised and expanded the Conservapedia satirical essay Does Richard Dawkins have machismo? and the revamped essay on Richard Dawkins is getting positive reviews. A YouTube video was produced on the essay and the video can be found HERE

No Consequences for Government Employees Who Charged Massive Shopping Spree to Taxpayers. Eighteen employees of the Federal Protective Service spent more than $100,000 in government funds for clothing and flat-screen TVs, gym memberships and tuition payments, according to a General Services Administration inspector general report, but none has faced disciplinary action. [12]

Critics rip Barack Hussein Obama's weekend declaration that he would seek a new 'international order' (New World Order), with some questioning how much U.S. sovereignty the White House is willing to give up in exchange for global "cooperation". The address seemed to mark a greater departure from the so-called "Bush Doctrine" than past Obama speeches like the president's address to Muslim nations last summer in Cairo. The Bush administration's approach to foreign affairs, dubbed the "Bush Doctrine," generally included a policy of unilateralism and the right to preemptive strike, among other tenets.

Support for repeal of the new national health care plan has jumped to its highest level ever. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of U.S. voters now favor repeal of the plan passed by congressional Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in March. [13]

The Hill reports on the New Jersey Supreme Court oral argument Tuesday morning to consider whether the people have the power to recall a U.S. Senator. [14] A Conservapedian is arguing the case.

At 10am Tuesday the biggest case of the year will be argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court: do the people have the power to recall U.S. Senators? A Conservapedian prepares to argue in support of the people's right.

Teacher Unions Seek $23 Billion Bailout. The Obama administration is supporting the bill, formally titled the Keep Our Educators Working Act even though one-third of the $100 billion the Department of Education received in last year’s stimulus bill remains unspent. Since school districts cannot live within their means, parents should try Homeschooling! [15]

Sarah Palin Questions Obama's Oil Ties. President's response to massive oil spill in Gulf may have been hampered by BP campaign donations, Palin asserts. [16]

The textbook The Americans by Henretta et al. begins its section on the Red Scare as follows: "Was there any significant Soviet penetration of the American government? Historians had mostly debunked the idea and so, in earlier editions, did this textbook. But we were wrong." [17]

Even though the Obama EPA restricted use of dispersants for toxicity concerns, after the Gulf oil spill disaster, dispersants have been allowed. Now cleanup workers are getting sick. [18]


Bailouts Of European Nations Are Economic Suicide. The global economy cannot be saved by an American bailout. The Federal Reserve has secretly lent billions of dollars to prop up the Euro. This is ridiculous since the European Union was created to compete against the economy of the United States. European socialism is based on a false and unsustainable premise of robbing Peter to pay Paul. It should be allowed to die of natural causes rather than given American money to be non-productive leeches. [19]

On Tuesday, the New Jersey Supreme Court hears oral argument on the issue of whether the people can recall a U.S. Senator from office. Unlike the U.S. Supreme Court, arguments before the NJ Supreme Court are televised with each side receiving 5 uninterrupted minutes before the questions begin. And the questions are often excellent.

Sarah Palin Says Rand Paul Hit by 'Gotcha' Politics. Palin said Senate hopeful Paul, facing recent media backlash, is learning what it's like to be her...hunted by the liberal, deceitful Mainstream Media. [20]
Increasingly, the public is realizing that the liberal media are a big part of the problem.

"Republican Charles Djou won the special election in Hawaii's First Congressional District – the Honolulu district where President Obama grew up. Djou is only the third Republican Hawaii has elected to Congress since statehood." [21]

Joe Sestak, who defeated Arlen Specter on Tuesday, stands by claim the Obama White House offered a federal job not to challenge Specter. [22]

Arizona Is Putting Kids First; Taking On Teachers. The Arizona Department of Education is sending evaluators to audit teachers and their English speaking skills to make sure districts are complying with state and federal laws. Teachers who are not fluent in English, have a heavy accent or do not speak grammatically correct will be temporarily reassigned. [23]

What A Shame Department: Crisis Imperils Liberal Benefits Long Expected by Europeans
The deficit crisis that threatens the Euro has also undermined the sustainability of the European standard of social welfare, built by left-leaning governments since the end of World War II. Europeans have benefited from low military spending, protected by NATO and the American nuclear umbrella, but no more. “It will be a mess,” a waiter said. “We’ll have to work harder and longer in our jobs.” Without the U.S. taxpayers subsidizing Europeans in one way or another, they will have to do exactly what Americans have been doing for decades to provide for their European cousin's early and lavish retirements; work harder, longer and save more --- C'est-la-vie! [24] & [25]

Climate Scientists Are Now Predicting Decades Of Global Cooling! Looking at much reduced sunspot activity and considering that the Sun is our overwhelmingly largest source of heat, a cycle of global cooling is plausible. Let’s hope that doesn’t give new opportunities for climate “scientists” to embezzle more taxpayer funds. [26]

Republican Victory In Obama's Backyard, Charles Djou Wins Hawaii's 1st District House of Representatives. [27] Djou takes a seat held by Democrats and brings strong conservative values to Washington D.C.

Elena Kagan's Writings Suggest Her View On Judge's Role: When judges make decisions, they must take account of their values and experience and consider politics and policy, rather than act as umpires. Her words stand in contrast to the more technical view of judging voiced by Chief Justice John Roberts at his confirmation hearing five years ago. Roberts said he considered himself an umpire merely calling balls and strikes. [28]

EXCLUSIVE BREAKING NEWS ... The New Jersey Supreme Court has accepted an amicus brief that supports a power of the people to recall U.S. Senators. The Court gives Senator Robert Menendez 14 days to respond:

Menendez Order NJ Sup Ct.jpg

The best of the public idea grows from being discussed on the Colbert Report to a much publicized oral argument before the New Jersey Supreme Court on Tuesday, when it considers whether the people have the power to recall a U.S. Senator from office. [29]

Gulf oil spill portends looming economic disaster. [30]

Obama apologist Dr. Paul Krugman now calls the Age of Obama a "lost decade." [31]

Liberals are furious that the "brilliant" Thomas Jefferson -- whom they promote because of one letter he wrote on separating church and state but who was not even present at the Constitutional Convention and drove his own estate into insolvency -- has lost his exaggerated significance in the new Texas textbook standards. [32]

Conservative Rand Paul to the liberal media: get lost, I don't need your liberal claptrap! He becomes only the third person in 62 years to cancel an appearance on Meet the Press, a has-been show watched only by fuddy-duddies any more. [33]

Vatican Paper: Courage, Caution On New Cell. Osservatore Romano said the most recent breakthrough in genetic engineering – the production of a synthetic cell – was a positive development, but one that had to be treated with care. The paper noted that despite some of the headlines surrounding the discovery, there was no new “life” that had been produced. “In reality it wasn’t life that was created; one of the motors was replaced, beyond the claims and the headlines in the papers, it was an interesting result that was obtained, which can have applications, and should have some rules, like all things that touch the heart of life,” the paper noted. [34]

Republican Sharron Angle was polling in the single digits, hardly a serious contender to take on Nevada Sen. Harry Reid in November, when the Tea Party Movement endorsed her candidacy in April. A month later, a new poll shows Angle ahead of a host of other Republicans, some of them nationally known, in the race to unseat the Democratic majority leader. [35]

TEXAS TEXTBOOK BATTLE: How should Barack Hussein Obama's name appear in U.S. History books? That's just one skirmish in a larger battle being waged in Texas today — and the outcome will decide how and what America's kids learn. Video

The so called "Block of Seven", a group of conservatives serving on the state school board, won almost every battle they fought, strengthening the study of the Founding Fathers, free enterprise, eugenics, the extent of Soviet spies during the Cold War that helped explain the 'Red Scare' and motivate Sen. Joseph McCarthy. They also succeeded in including study of the Black Panthers during discussion of the Civil Rights Era, the internment of Germans and Italians, as well as the Japanese during WWII, and the economics standards will now require teachers to consider the "solvency" of entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare. [42]

It took about two minutes from the time the New Jersey State Senate certified the passage of the millionaires tax package for Gov. Chris Christie to veto the bills at his desk. [43]

Still more proof that liberalism is a mental disorder: the Democrats and their liberal supporters in this country demand that the southern border with Mexico remain open for anyone to cross over at any time, for any purpose...and so what if thousands of them are terrorists? [44] One would have to be nuts to ever trust the judgment of a liberal ever again.

California City Stands With Arizona. Costa Mesa, mere miles from Los Angeles, the metropolis that imposed a boycott on Arizona over its immigration law has just weighed in on the other side of the debate -- voting to declare itself a "Rule of Law City" where illegal immigrants are not welcome. [45]

The most far-reaching restraints on big banks since the Great Depression, Senate passes financial overhaul bill. Government grows yet again as the new legislation crafted by disgraced Senator Chris Dodd passed by a 59-39 vote. All Republicans voted against the bill except RINO's Grassley, Snowe, Collins and Scott Brown. The main culprits of the housing crash, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are exempt from the Too big to fail legislation for which Republican Senator Shelby remarked "Losses continue to mount and taxpayer exposure is unlimited." [46]

Elena Kagan meets with Al Franken, the liberal actor now playing the role of a senator. He declared that "she would bring some much-needed variety to the court. We had a great, lengthy conversation about many areas of law, the confirmation process, and her views on the role of the Supreme Court." [52]

GlobalWarmingFraud Newsbusters.jpg

So-called "scientists" who have used taxpayers funds to manipulate and falsify climate data should be forced to repay their ill got gains. Appropriate action has been initiated. A state attorney general is challenging the creator of the global warming hockey stick graph, and the researcher's allies are yelping about intimidation. But who are the real academic bullies? [53]

The biggest common denominator to Tuesday's election results: pro-life Republicans won, and pro-life Democrats won. The Democrats retained the late John Murtha's seat only by running a Democrat who claimed to be pro-life, Mark Critz. [54]

Gulf oil spill disaster threatens Florida Keys. [55]
The liberal media simply will not criticize Obama, not matter how inept his response is.

Following a New York Times report that he exaggerated his military record, Democratic Senate hopeful Richard Blumenthal has seen his double digit lead dwindle down to three points. [56]

The number of homeowners who missed at least one payment on their mortgage surged to a record in the first quarter of the year, a sign that the foreclosure crisis is far from over. [57]

Many people find the behavior of atheists in history and the behavior of atheist in the present puzzling. Conservapedia has just released an article on atheism and satanic deception.

An invitation for you to read the 10-page Arizona immigration law is here:[58] Doing so would make you more knowledgeable on the subject than our current leaders in Washington who either can't - or won't - read it. Are we right, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano?

An open invitation to submit caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad has led to death threats, a court order and a boycott of Facebook. [59]

More political correctness stupidity: A Democrat-leaning newspaper does a little "air-brushing"...i.e. "lying" over a front-page photo. Did it ever occur to the editors at the Dominion Post that Stalin did the same thing, too? [60]

A simple analysis of Arlen Specter's loss in the primary proves not just a defeat for Obama, but a simple fact that Washington politicians who live by the rule of political expediency are finished: [61]

Dr. Art Robinson, homeschooling advocate and critic of "Mann-made" global warming, crushes his opponent in an 80-20% victory! [62]

The victorious Tea Party Movement candidate Rand Paul declares, "Please, please bring President Obama" to Kentucky to campaign against me! [63]

Incumbents Rocked by Votes --
If Tuesday's primaries were any indication, incumbents and establishment-backed candidates in November should be shaking in their boots. Taken together, the results of Tuesday's races sent a clear message to Washington that the anti-incumbent wave that has gripped the nation over the past year isn't losing steam. Political novice, Tea Party movement favorite Rand Paul said "It cannot be overstated that people want something new," Paul said, "They don't want the same old, same old politicians and I think they think the system is broken and needs new blood. The Tea Party movement has a message, loud and clear for Washington; We have come to take our government back!" [64]


Newt Gingrich On Stopping Obama's Secular-Socialist Machine: "The Left has thoroughly infiltrated nearly every cultural commanding height of our civilization. They are radically redefining our very culture by deciding what is news, what is entertainment, what our children learn in school, and what kind of government we should have." [65]

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel said today "the euro is at risk" and the current situation is Europe's "biggest test" in decades. "If we don't avert this danger then the consequences for Europe are inevitable," Merkel said. "Because if the euro is failing, than Europe is failing." [66]

The Texas Insider Reports: "The Washington Post recently reported that the Tea Party movement is “struggling to overcome accusations of racism,” some of which has been perpetuated on The Washington Post’s own opinion pages. New York Times, home to the most obsessively anti-Tea Party editorial page in America, was stunned to discover that “at least 32 African-Americans are running for Congress this year as Republicans, the biggest surge since Reconstruction, according to party officials.”[67]

Conservapedia -- Right Again! You can't say we didn't warn our elected officials. Several times we repeated here, "If you pass it, (ObamaCare) you will go!" With the handwriting on the wall, liberals in Congress have embarked on a suicide mission of huge spending, knowing full well they will meet their "Obamageddon" in November. Barack Obama will be the owner of a shattered, discredited and crippled administration, (same as Jimmy Carter was) whose socialist "change" was rejected by the American people. [68]

Pro-life Democrat Holds Murtha Seat in Pennsylvania Special Election. Mark Critz, a longtime aide the late Rep. John Murtha, edged Republican candidate Tim Burns in a special election Tuesday to take his boss's old seat. Critz won't be a rubber stamp for the House Democratic leadership. Critz describes himself as an abortion opponent and is an ardent supporter of the Second Amendment. He also said he'd vote against the controversial climate change bill the House approved last June. The two will face each other again in November. Stay tuned. [69]

Obama administration officials were recently called on carpet over Gulf oil spill disaster. [70]

One of the reasons the oil spill disaster and the administrations response to it has been damaging to the Obama administration is due to the fact that Obama hasn't been able to blame the oil spill and the Federal government's response to it on George W. Bush!

Obama extends his endorsement failure rate to 5 for 5: Sen. Blanche Lincoln trails in her primary and will face a run-off against her challenger. [71]

Tea Party favorite Rand Paul wins the Republican Senate primary in Kentucky by a landslide. [74]

The University of Oxford appears to moving somewhat closer to reality. Marcus du Sautoy, the new Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, is advocating the importance of mathematics.[75] His predecessor, Richard Dawkins, had a strong penchant for promoting evolutionary gibberish.

Ivy League impostor dupes Harvard. Man lies his way into Harvard University, garners $50,000 in scholarships based on his deceit! Watch video here.


Liberal Ignorance Is Bliss Department: Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano admitted Monday that she has not read the controversial Arizona immigration law even though she's gone on television to criticize it, and continues to assert that it was "bad law enforcement law." The admission comes after Attorney General Eric Holder, who earlier warned the law could create a "slippery slope" toward racial profiling, told a House committee last week that he had not read the bill either. On Tuesday, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said he too had not read the bill, even as he defended leftist diplomatic official Michael Posner for comparing the law to Chinese human rights violations. [76]

Obama blunders again: Iran signs a nuclear pact with Brazil and Turkey, making a joke out of Obama's so-called "diplomacy." "Full credit for this debacle goes to the Obama Administration and its hapless diplomatic strategy." Will we see Obama fly to Iran and bow to its leaders next? [77]

Battle Lines Drawn in Texas Textbook War. Conservative members of the Texas School Board have moved to reverse liberal bias in the classroom and in textbooks. The standards are revised once every ten years. At issue this week is the social studies standards for children in kindergarten through the 12th grade, and if liberals will get away with white-washing American history yet again. [78]

After his campaigning for Martha Coakley, Jon Corzine and Creigh Deeds resulted in huge losses for those liberals, Obama is not campaigning for any candidates in today's election. [79] Is he afraid the liberal losses today will lower his approval rating further?

Three Senate primaries and one key House election today will shed light on whether voters are in an anti-incumbent mood, or anti-liberal mood. [80]

At a ceremony honoring veterans and senior citizens who sent presents to soldiers overseas, liberal Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut rose and spoke of an earlier time in his life: "We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam." [83] There was one problem, Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. In fact, he has consistently misled voters about his service. Blumenthal took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records. [84]

Illegal Immigrants Costing Arizona $ Billions. Arizona’s illegal immigrant population is costing the state’s taxpayers even more than once thought -- a whopping $2.7 billion, according to researchers at the public interest group that helped write the state's new immigration law. Researchers at FAIR – The Federation for American Immigration Reform -- released data exclusively to that show a steady cost climb in multiple areas, including incarceration, education and health, in the last five years. [85]

Tuesday primaries in key states, including Pennsylvania and Kentucky. Will Arlen Specter lose? Will Rand Paul win? Who will win the late John Murtha's seat?

Americans Under 30 Most Likely to Take Uncompromising Stand for Right to Life, Says Gallup Poll. The pro-abortion left appears to be losing the battle for the heart and soul of the rising generation of Americans, according to new data released by the Gallup poll. Americans in the 18 to 29 age bracket are now more likely than their elders to believe abortion should be illegal in all circumstances, and they generally oppose abortion in greater numbers than Baby Boomers.

Hollywood Values: Woody Allen says President Obama should be granted dictatorial powers (seriously). The director said "it would be good ... if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly." [91]

But can Hollywood Values fail, when filmmakers forget their liberalism? Robin Hood, the man who "stole from the rich and gave to the poor" and constantly used by liberals and Democrats to justify taxation - contradicting what the ancient tales and films say; he stole from the agents of a corrupt and tyrannical government. Now a new film by Ridley Scott may portray him as the "original Tea Partier": [92]

Supreme Court.jpg

Supreme Court of the United States News:

* Juvenile Sentencing Law Struck Down. In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled this morning that juvenile criminals cannot be sentenced to life in prison with no chance at parole for crimes other than homicide because it violates their Eighth Amendment right against Cruel and Unusual Punishment. Justice Anthony Kennedy has the opinion of the Court. [93]

* Sex Offenders Can Stay Locked Away: Court rules authorities can hold sexually dangerous criminals behind bars beyond their terms. In a 7-2 ruling penned by Justice Stephen Breyer, the Supreme Court says a federal law passed by Congress to keep convicted sex offenders confined beyond the term of their prison sentences is Constitutional. [94]

Bill Clinton, not Barack Obama, campaigns for the Democrat trying to hold on to the late John Murtha's seat in Pennsylvania. Check out Bill's liberal logic: "A lot of these people voting are mad and frustrated, let me ask you, forget about politics. Remember those decisions you made in your life when you were mad? About 80% of the time, you made a mistake, am I right?"[95]
Translation: always for liberals, no matter how mad you are!

Thousands pour into St. Peter's Square. More than 150,000 people filled St. Peter's Square on Sunday in a major show of support for Pope Benedict XVI over the clerical sex abuse scandal. Benedict said he was comforted by such a "beautiful and spontaneous show of faith and solidarity" and again denounced what he called the "sin" that has infected the church and needs to be purified. "The true enemy to fear and to fight against is sin, the spiritual evil that unfortunately sometimes infects even members of the church," he said. [98]

"And in clear unison we say, 'Mr. President: Do your job. Secure our border.'" The former Alaska governor appeared with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer at a brief news conference on Saturday. The event launched a website that Brewer said was an effort to educate America about border security and discourage an economic boycott of the state. [104]

The Wages Of Deceit: A student who received a full-ride ROTC scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill may now owe the United States Army nearly $80,000 for the money it put toward her tuition and books after coming out as a lesbian. Sara Isaacson, who identified as a straight woman when she started college, was notified in March that she was being discharged for violating the Army's “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy after informing the head of the university’s ROTC program of her sexual orientation in a formal memo. [108]

Liberal Values: Baltimore Inspector General revealed that registered sex offender Dennis J. McLaughlin, an employee of DPW's Bureau of Water & Wastewater, received $12,700 in sick leave, vacation and holiday pay by the city while serving an eight- month sentence for sexually abusing a minor. Later when he returned to work he was assigned to a sensitive position investigating water leaks in both private residences and schools! [109]

New House Ratings Ride a Conservative Tide. This year, the voter backlash is against President Barack Obama and his fellow liberals. There are now 85 Democratic-controlled House districts rated by CQ Politics in a range from highly to somewhat competitive, and just 19 Republican-held districts that fit the same description [110]

Shakeup at Wikipedia After Porn Purge: "It's Chaos!" After much pressure from within the Wikipedia community, co-founder Jimmy Wales has relinquished his top-level control over the encyclopedia's content, as well as all of its parent company's projects. Though he remains the president of the Wikimedia Foundation, "Jimbo" Wales is no longer able to delete files, remove administrators, assign projects, sources say. Essentially, they say, he has gone from having free reign over the content and people involved in the websites to having the same capabilities of a low-level administrator. Administrators have been adding back the child pornography Wales removed. When asked who was in charge now, a source said, “No one. It’s chaos!” [118]


Walter Cronkite collaborated with anti-Vietnam War activists in the 1960s. Cronkite went so far as to offer advice on how to raise the public profile of protests and even pledging CBS News resources to help pull off events, according to FBI documents obtained by Yahoo! News. Liberal bias among the Lamestream Media isn't new at all, even from the so-called "Most Trusted Man in America", who is now shown to be full of deceit. [119]

71% Of Voters Say United States More Positive Force in World Than U.N., Political Class Disagrees. The gap between the Political Class and the nation is particularly large on this question.

Thousands Sign Petition Protesting Empire State Building's Snub of Mother Teresa. A nationwide petition drive has been launched by the Catholic League after the Empire State Building denied a request to commemorate Mother Teresa's 100th birthday. Bill Donohue, President of the League noted that the iconic building in midtown Manhattan changed its colors to red and yellow last year to honor the 60th anniversary of China's Communist Revolution. "Yet under its founder, Mao Zedong, the Communists killed 77 million people," Donohue said in a statement. "In other words, the greatest mass murderer in history merited the same tribute being denied to Mother Teresa." [124]

Discredited United Nations Department: Libya - a country with well documented ties to terrorist organizations and an abysmal human rights record has been elected by a majority of its fellow U.N. members to serve on the United Nations' Human Rights Council. In a secret ballot Libya received 155 votes and will serve a three year term. [125]

An evolutionary biochemist thinks he has proved a key tenet of evolution–namely, common descent, also known as Universal Common Ancestry. The trouble is, all he has really shown is that if life evolved as Charles Darwin said it did, then it is over 100,000 times more likely to have come from a single ancestor than from several ancestors that sprang up all over the world. But why should that be, if the origin of life were completely random? [126]

The street protests are now occurring now in Ireland and Romania as people do not want to bailout the bankers for their bad loans. Gerald Celente accurately predicted the financial problems and protests would spread to other countries. VIDEO

Despite repeatedly voicing concerns about Arizona's new immigration law, Attorney General Eric Holder says he has not read the law yet — which is only 10 pages long ! Holder did tell Congress he plans to read the law before reaching a decision on whether he thinks it's constitutional. That's nice of him... [127]

School Official in Basketball Flap Is No Stranger to Controversy: The school official who nixed an Illinois girls high school basketball team trip to Arizona once supported a controversial program that required students to attend a “freshman advisory” class where Gay upperclassmen shared stories of their high school experience with new students. Students who attended were asked to sign a statement promising not to tell others -- including their parents -- about what was said in class. Typical of liberals. [128]

Republicans have solidified support among voters who had drifted from the party in recent elections, putting the GOP in position for a strong comeback in the November 2010 Elections, according to a new Wall Street Journal / NBC News poll. Republicans have reassembled their coalition by reconnecting with independents, seniors, blue-collar voters, suburban women and small town and rural voters—all of whom had moved away from the party in the 2006 elections, in which Republicans lost control of the House. Those voter groups now favor GOP control of Congress. [131] & [132]

A Real Nowhere Man: Pennsylvania Republican-turned-Democratic Senator Arlen Specter once again appears to be having a bit of a political identity crisis. With a tough primary only one week away, Specter spoke Tuesday to a group of Democrats in Pittsburgh and said this: "I thank the Allegheny Republican Committee for endorsing me for the Democratic nomination… Great pleasure to be endorsed by the Allegheny County Republicans and together we'll win for victory." [133]

Parents in Illinois are outraged over a move by Highland Park High School to scrap its girls basketball team's trip to Arizona over new immigration law. After winning their first conference title in 26 years, the girls are being denied the opportunity to play in the tournament because their school determined the trip “would not be aligned” with its “beliefs and values,” Assistant Superintendent Suzan Hebson told the Chicago Tribune. Yet the same school approved a student trip to China apparently because it is aligned with their beliefs and values. At least those of the liberal, public school administrators that is! [134]

Economics literacy scoreboard: Ben Bernanke and Obama 0, Conservapedia 1 !!! In early August Conservapedia declared: "Given the abysmal economic policy of Bernanke and the Obama administration, Bernanke probably should invest in gold..." [135]. Gold prices see a breakout and a documentary is soon coming out warning people to protect themselves against the folly of Obama and Ben Bernanke.VIDEO[136]

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger threatens to eliminate California's main welfare program unless he gets a bailout from the Federal government.[137] Watch a chain reaction of many states asking for a bailout if the federal government caves into the California welfare state.

Election 2010: Alaska Governor: Conservative Governor Sean Parnell is comfortably ahead of his three chief Democratic challengers in his bid for reelection in Alaska by 30% +. Opposition to ObamaCare is even higher in Alaska than it is nationally. 62% of Alaska voters favor repeal of the health care bill. This includes 55% who Strongly Favor repeal. [138]

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer Signs Bill Targeting Ethnic Studies. State schools chief Tom Horne, who has pushed the bill for years, said he believes the Tucson school district's Mexican-American "studies" program teaches Latino students that they are oppressed by white people. Public schools should not be encouraging students to resent a particular race, he said. Obvious to anyone except liberal teachers, we guess! [139]

Kagan Argued for Government 'Redistribution of Speech.' Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan said the high court should be focused on ferreting out improper governmental motives when deciding First Amendment cases.

A Christian apologist recently released an excellent essay entitled Send in the Clowns – Richard Dawkins Obliges.[145]

Pretending Elena Kagan's Mind Is a Mystery. When George W. Bush nominated judges John Roberts and Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court, the networks routinely described them as "conservative" and even "very conservative" and "ultraconservative." They even tagged Obama’s first nominee Sonia Sotomayor as a "conservative" last year. But the early stories on President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan routinely avoided describing her as a liberal. ABC, CBS, and NBC aggressively ignored documentary evidence that Kagan was a fervent liberal. On the Fox News Channel, reporter Shannon Bream quoted liberals downplaying her ideology, but also noted "Kagan wrote an opinion piece for the student newspaper saying she, quote, ‘absorbed liberal principles early,’ and went on to lament the success of those she called, quote, ‘anonymous but Moral Majority-backed avengers of innocent life.’ Kagan also said she looked forward to a time when a, quote, ‘more leftist left will once again come to the fore.’" [146] & Shannon Bream's documentation

Obama Is Calling 'Information' a Threat. In his latest swipe at the modern media environment, President Obama used a commencement speech over the weekend to bemoan the onslaught of information in the digital age and suggest that the gusher of news out there is too much of a good thing.

Wikipedia Pornography Still There. Despite some efforts by Wikipedia's parent Foundation to rapidly purge Child pornography from its servers over the weekend, the original images that the online encyclopedia's co-founder reported to the FBI are still up on the site — along with an entire category called “nude children” and other photos of naked children. The inmates have taken over the asylum, it seems - as liberals fight against porn removal and Jimbo Wales [158]- [159]

"Kagan Pick Disrespects Military" [160]

Your typical Democratic Congressman: Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri thinks that Americans "don't get" the current explanation of global warming due to a lack of being able to read above a sixth-grade level. “I think the newspapers are supposed to be printed at the sixth grade level and I think with something as important as (global warming), we’ve got to figure out how to simplify the language for the public, because otherwise they’re going to get a headache and bail out because they -- not because they’re not concerned, but because they don’t get it.” [161] Note to Cleaver: We get it quite well; can you get it that you'll lose the next election because the public is tired of your elitism, among others?

Barack Obama again criticizes how the Supreme Court ended restrictions on corporate campaign expenditures ... as he nominated Elena Kagan, who has contributed to his campaign. [162]

Liberal double standard for U.S. Supreme Court: liberals insisted Clarence Thomas lacked experience, but Obama's pick is a liberal insider who has never decided a case, argued very few of them, and written very little. She was "attempting to bar military recruiters from the Harvard Law campus a few years ago." [163]
So liberals want the seat of the last veteran on the Court (John Paul Stevens) to go to someone who expelled the military!

Republican U.S. Senator George LeMieux of Florida issues this tribute: "Mother's Day is a time to recognize the many contributions and sacrifices mothers make in our lives. ..." [167] So where are the liberal Senators' tributes?

64% Of Americans Still Rate Being A Mother As A Woman’s Most Important Role. [168]

Liberal logic strikes again: Planned Parenthood "asks people to celebrate motherhood by giving to a business that destroys it: 'nothing would make [mom] happier than a gift that represents bold and compassionate values. Like a gift in her honor to Planned Parenthood.'" Sick. [169]

Today Is Mothers Day. Honor Your Mother As God Commanded!


Even upon the Cross and near death, when Jesus saw his mother in the crowd, He made the effort to arrange for her care and said: "Woman, behold, your son!" Then He said to the disciple who was with her, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home. John 19:26-27.

Conservapedia's Mothers Day Prayer:

Loving God,
as a mother gives life and nourishment to her children,
so You watch over them.
Bless these women,
that they may be strengthened as Christian mothers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
may honor them always
with a spirit of profound respect.
May all mothers receive Your Grace abundantly in this earthly life,
and may they look forward to eternal joy in Your presence in the life to come!

The web traffic tracking firm Quantcast's recent data suggests what Conservapedians always knew about Wikipedia. Wikipedia's audience is all too often made up of superficial individuals.

According to Quantcast collected at 9am Greenwich Mean Time on the day of May 9, 2010, the prevalent sources of news listed for Wikipedia's audience were, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and [170] On the other hand, prevalent news sources listed for Conservapedia's audience were The Washington Times, the New York Post, the Chicago Tribune, and the Washington Post.[171]

What is the featured article for May 9, 2010 at Wikipedia? According to Wikipedia here it is: "Jason Voorhees is a fictional character from the Friday the 13th series of slasher films." Deep Wikipedia. Very deep. It certainly appears as if Quantcast's data is very accurate when it comes to Wikipedia's audience!

Liberal claptrap dominates college commencement exercises. For example, the governor who caved into pressure to approve gay marriage in Maine, before voters overrode his decision, told graduates that the world had changed "dramatically" since he graduated. [174] Well, Americans are more conservative, but he wouldn't say that.

RINO Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT) is defeated in re-election. By failing to garner even 40 percent of Utah Republican convention delegates, he may not appear on the primary ballot, and under the law, may not run as an independent. Backlash over the Troubled Asset Relief Program claims its first victim. [175] (Bennett's statement: [176]) The Tea Party recently claimed control of the Utah GOP. [177] The Utah Tea Party is credited for Bennett's ouster. [178]

Obama promised to look outside for the next U.S. Supreme Court nomination, but instead it's the "same old, same old" rerun of the Clinton Administration as he is expected to pick one of its liberal insiders, Elena Kagan. Meanwhile, a "Gallup poll released Friday said 42 percent of Americans would prefer a new Supreme Court justice who makes the court more conservative, while 27 percent would prefer one who would make the Court more liberal." [179]

Another indication of how people are getting more conservative: College-educated women are spending more time with their children, reversing the opposite trend that began in the 1960s. "College-educated mothers began spending nine hours more per week with their children than in the previous decade." [181]


Sarah Palin Has Endorsed Carly Fiorina For Senator From California. Palin said, "Carly is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-military, and pro-strict border security and against amnesty. She is against Obamacare and will vote to repeal it and prevent the government takeover of private companies and industries. Carly is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Like me, she is a member of the NRA, has a 100% NRA rating, and she and her husband are gun owners. She is against cap and tax. And most importantly, Carly is the only conservative in the race who can beat Barbara Boxer. That’s no RINO. That’s a winner!" [182]

Public School Teacher Sues Over Right to Flunk Her Students. Sheila Goudeau, by all accounts, was a good teacher. In fact, she was the only nationally certified teacher at Riveroaks Elementary School in Louisiana, and she was a nominee for teacher of the year. Although hired specifically to raise the students grades, her principal ordered that no student was to get a failing grade and that teachers were not to record any grade lower than a "D." ! [185]

Greece Debt Crisis Coming to a Neighborhood Near You? Until its day of reckoning arrived this week, Greece lived for years beyond its means, borrowing money and spilling red ink to finance excessive government spending, offering socialized health care and provided lavish wages for federal workers.

Wikipedia Starts Purging Porn From Its Websites !

In a victory for Conservapedia and Wikipedia Co-Founder Larry Sanger, the parent company of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia is rapidly purging thousands of explicit pornographic images from its websites as it prepares to announce a new policy regarding sexually explicit content in response to reporting by Fox News.

Obama White House Quietly Supports Greek Bailout. Republicans continue to oppose US participation in the loan, however. Some feel this week's huge protests raise doubts the Greeks will actually accept the government salary and pension cuts and higher taxes their Parliament approved yesterday. And some Republicans feel the Greek lifestyle doesn't deserve a bailout. Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers said "the average retirement age is 53 years old. They get 80% of their salary as a retirement. At some point, I think Europe needs to evaluate whether or not they can continue these types of social programs that they have had for a number of years." [195]

Since when is displaying the American flag an 'incendiary' act?
At one California high school, it's when the display takes place on a particular holiday — and it's not even an American holiday. Administrators at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas -- garments the school officials deemed "incendiary" on Cinco de Mayo. More than 100 students were spotted wearing red, white and green as they were leaving school. Some had the Mexican flag painted on their faces or on their arms. Evidently sporting a foreign flag isn't considered incendiary in public schools. [200]

Paranoia, Anxiety Grow Over Obama's Gulf Coast Oil Spill Response. People along the Gulf Coast have spent weeks living with uncertainty, wondering where and when a huge slick of oil might come ashore, ruining beaches — and livelihoods, while the Obama Administration has spent its time trying to look good and fix blame rather than marshaling the kind of massive effort needed.

Silly Liberal Billionaire: "We’ve got a gap of 10 percentage points between what we’re raising in taxes and what we’re spending." Solution: "One way or another we are going to have to close that gap in a major way, so if some of those (new) taxes (a possible new Value Added Tax) fall on me, that’s probably the way it should be." What about cutting spending? Liberals don't care about the majority who can barely get by. [228]

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie acts to bring his State's Supreme Court in line. He announced today that he would not reappoint Justice John E. Wallace, a non-tenured jurist with a reputation for liberal leanings. Christie has appointed an eminent and well-respected business attorney to replace him. [229]

Illegal immigration hypocrisy: While Mexican President Felipe Calderon is busy denouncing Arizona's new immigration law as a "violation of human rights" he is forgetting about his own "Reglamento de la Ley General de Poblacion" — the General Law on Population enacted in Mexico in April 2000, which calls illegal immigration into Mexico a felony, and imposes harsh punishments on those who would dare to break it. [230]

Shameful Pressure: In Pennsylvania, Department of Human Services caseworker pressured a pregnant teenager to undergo a late-term abortion by threatening to take away either her toddler or her unborn baby if she had the child, according to the teen's foster mother. By the time DHS arranged for the abortion - in March - the girl was 24 weeks pregnant. She had to undergo the procedure in New Jersey because abortions in Pennsylvania are illegal at 24 weeks...yet the order was signed by a Pennsylvania judge! [232]

Illinois votes on school vouchers for Chicago public schools this week, to clean up the mess that Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, and Arne Duncan left behind.

U.K. Conservatives Extend Their Lead - David Cameron: "We'll have six months to lay out spending cuts."
The Conservative Party extended its lead in opinion polls ahead of Thursday's hotly contested general election, benefiting from a strong debate performance by party leader David Cameron and a memorable gaffe by Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown. In already planning for spending cuts, Cameron is taking a page from Ronald Reagan's playbook. Liberals have driven the U.K. to the edge of bankruptcy, as they have the United States. [239]

"Spain's jobless rate topped 20 percent in the first quarter." [240] Gay marriage and socialism are great, aren't they?

Liberal double standard: the media mercilessly berated George W. Bush about Hurricane Katrina, yet has barely a word critical of the inept reaction by the Obama Administration to the oil spill in the Gulf.

A British atheist is convicted after a jury "took just 15 minutes to rule he had left the religious offence material with the intention of causing alarm or distress. Judge James said: 'Not only have you shown no remorse for what you did, but even now you continue to maintain you have done nothing wrong and say that whenever you feel like it you intend to do the same thing again in the future.'" [241]

Pastor Tim Conway recently gave an excellent sermon concerning the creation vs. evolution issue.VIDEO

Is Oil Spill Obama's Katrina? As the massive Gulf oil slick grows worse by the day, the White House is fighting off a growing perception that the federal response to this ecological disaster is President Obama's Katrina.

Obama Takes Direct Aim at Anti-Government Rhetoric. President Obama took aim Saturday at the so-called angry rhetoric of those who denigrate government as "inherently bad" and said their off-base line of attack ignores the fact that in a democracy, "government is us." Well that explains lots....Obama doesn't realize we have a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. If we had a democracy, he could kiss his bailouts and Obamacare goodbye. Obama is upset because as a liberal socialist he's never seen a level of government he didn't like. [246]

Liberal denial is working hard to obscure how the British Conservative Party is going to win big in Thursday's election. Headlines claim no one will win (false), or that the Liberal Democrats might win (absurd), or that the conservatives will win but not obtain a majority (they don't say that whenever liberals win). [247] Give it up, liberals: the conservatives are going to win big in the land of atheism!!!

Civil rights concerns raised by Arizona’s recently passed immigration law are a hot topic in the news, but 71% of U.S. voters continue to believe American society is generally fair and decent. A minuscule 21% (undoubtedly all liberals) feel American society is unfair and discriminatory. An overwhelming majority (80%) of voters also still believe that when people move to America from other parts of the world they should adopt America’s culture. [248]

"Oppressive censorship" is what a video game developer association says about state laws curbing how the $20 billion industry preys on children, now before the U.S. Supreme Court after the request by a Conservapedian. [257] Ever consider that children are being victimized by video games instead?

Sarah Palin E-Mail Hacker Convicted ! A Tennessee jury today has convicted the young man who hacked Sarah Palin's e-mail account on two of four charges -- computer fraud and obstruction of justice. The charges the Internet vandal was convicted of carry a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. Defense attorneys argued David Kernall, the son of a Democratic state lawmaker, was just committing a college prank. That doesn't seem to have worked too well. [260]

The riot police are called out into the streets in Quincy, Illinois as Obama faces a "deadly" peril from Tea Party grandmothers: [261] Could it be all the freshly-baked cookies that he doesn't like?

U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women's Rights ! Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged "immodest." The U.N. never fails to make itself an irrelevant joke. [262]

Mexico's Hypocrisy? Mexican President Felipe Calderon says his government "cannot and will not remain indifferent" in the face of Arizona's new immigration enforcement law, which he says violates human rights.

Greece's economic collapse threatens the future of the European Union. ""The Greeks Want Even More Billions from Us," screams a German headline. "It's completely unfair," declares a Berliner. "We should not be paying for others." [267] Hello? Where are the German liberals now???

The Mainstream Media are clueless in their coverage of the Recall Election case involving Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ)! Someone needs to inform them of what the Constitution of the United States does and does not say. The US Constitution does not preclude recalls of Senators or Representatives in Congress. That is what this case, argued by our own Andy Schlafly, is all about. [268]

Senator Harry Reid’s support remains frozen again this month around 40%, while two of his chief Republican opponents, both Conservatives, continue to draw over 50% of the vote in Nevada’s U.S. Senate race. Nearly half the voters in the state (47%) continue to have a very unfavorable view of the liberal Democratic incumbent, while only 23% view him very favorably. Reid, who is seeking a fifth term in the Senate, received 61% of the vote in 2004. Before Obama. Can you feel the wind as Democrats begin to run away from "the most radical president in America's history"? [269]

Americans Say Congress More Likely To Raise Taxes Than Cut Spending If Deficit Commission Recommends It. [270]

"Court seems eager to tackle violent video games." Well, no kidding. But the video game industry is still in liberal denial in thinking that the Court will cheer it on. [271]

That was not Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat. When the videos and the still pictures came out, something was wrong from the start, because those pictures show people not dressed for the climb and rough-hewn beams with cobwebs on them. That, and direct evidence that this was all a clever fraud. Meanwhile, real Ark hunters are still looking. [272][273]

The washed-up, 60-year-old singer Peter Gabriel declares, "I believe in abortion." [274] Perhaps his liberal advocacy as an over-the-hill rocker helped earn him Sweden's "Polar Music Prize," a silly imitation for music of the liberal Nobel Prize. [275]

Liberal "Sanctuary Cities" Fight Arizona's New Immigration Law Without Offering Sanctuary. As San Francisco and other "sanctuary cities" declare war on Arizona over its new law cracking down on illegal immigrants, most state and local governments that provide a safe haven to undocumented workers refused to publicly roll out a welcome mat for the estimated 440,000 illegals in the Grand Canyon state. Typical of Liberal tricks. [276]

Nanny State Update: County officials in Silicon Valley (San Jose, California) trying to curb childhood obesity voted to ban restaurants from giving away toys and other freebies that often come with high-calorie meals aimed at kids. The ban, which faces a final vote next month, would prohibit restaurants from giving away an incentive item, like a toy, with a meal that contains more than 485 calories, more than 600 milligrams of sodium and excessive amounts of fat and sugars. It is indeed a Brave New World! [289]

Judge Rips Ayers but Won't Stop Him. A judge who served as a Marine in Vietnam ruled Tuesday the University of Wyoming must allow William Ayers to speak on campus, but also expressed disdain for an anti-war group co-founded by the radical who claimed responsibility in the 1960s for a series of bombings. U.S. District Judge William Downes issued his ruling, saying a free society must both exercise and guarantee free speech rights. "I can scarcely swallow the bile of my contempt" for the Weather Underground, the judge said. "But the fact is Mr. Ayers is a citizen of the United States who wishes to speak, and he need not offer any more justification than that." [290]

The Oklahoma legislature overrides the Governor's veto and passes a law requiring showing a woman an ultrasound of her unborn child before performing an abortion. Statistically, 80% of women decide against having an abortion once they see the ultrasound, and an abortion group filed suit immediately to try to stop this law from being enforced. [291]

One analyst puts the value of the video game industry at $44.3 billion, $29.9 billion in U.S. game sales with 27% of the gamers under 18 years old. [292] No wonder kids can't read or spell! Hollywood sales are only a fraction of that.

Clueless liberal defenders of the $20-billion video game industry think the U.S. Supreme Court granted cert. Monday (as requested by a Conservapedian) in order to say "attaboy" to the industry. [300] Liberals wouldn't be so clueless if they played fewer video games!

[303] The Court, to the surprise of liberals, agreed Monday to hear the case.

Senate Republicans held together Monday afternoon to block efforts by Democrats to officially begin debate on the financial industry reform bill.

Billionaire Liberal New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- who barely won reelection despite spending the equivalent of $174.53 per vote and over $100 million in total -- tells an abortion group that he wants the next judicial nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court to support abortion. [305]

"Authorities to Reed College: Crack down on drugs or face funding cuts ... the meeting was highly unusual in that officials warned Colin Diver, the president, that Reed could face a cutoff of federal funds — including student loans — if it is not deemed to be taking 'adequate steps to combat illegal drug activity.'" [306] How about a crackdown on the liberal faculty first?

God Condemns The Natural Man: The natural man looks into the mirror and sees his god: himself, the egotist for whom there is no higher power than his own mind. The natural man is he who, like Protagoras (quoted in Plato’s Theaetetus), declared, “Man is the measure of all things,” meaning that there are no independent, transcendent standards of right and wrong, that every person is free to make his own rules. Natural man found great comfort in the 1920s and afterwards in the mind manipulation hypotheses of Sigmund Freud.... Click and read more

Battles Loom Over Holding Public school Graduations In A Church - Even Without Prayers! , five Connecticut school districts last year said they'd hold their June commencements at an area megachurch.
