Conservapedia salutes the sacrifices our Kiwi and Aussie cousins have made to preserve freedom!
"On Sunday 25 April, a press conference was held in Hong Kong at 11 am local time, at the large concrete full-size Ark replica on the way to the airport. A local Christian organization, The Media Evangelism Ltd, announced that they had accessed and filmed an extremely interesting item 4,200 metres (14,000 ft) up on Ararat in an extremely dangerous and hard-to-access area.
Buried in ice and rock, (well above the treeline) they were able to tunnel down and enter and film about seven accessible rooms (there were more) constructed out of what clearly appeared to be wood, including small doorways, a shelf, beams with pegs, and more.
As more information becomes available over the next few days, we should be able to flesh out some of these details, including more on the history of the find."

Only 21% of Americans think that rulings by judges in recent years regarding religion in public life have correctly interpreted the U.S. Constitution, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national survey.

Arizona Immigration Bill Signed - Law makes it a crime to be in U.S. illegally, requires police to ask suspected illegals about immigration status.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a controversial bill that seeks to crack down on illegal immigration. The sweeping measure will make it a crime under state law to be in the country illegally. It will also require local police officers to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. Barack Obama strongly opposed this measure. Given his own circumstances (the millions given to his campaign by amnesty and illegal immigrant groups), not a surprise. Obama seeks to circumvent Arizona's action by federal law. 
Christian Theologian on Earth Day: ‘Climate Change Is the Totalitarian’s Dream Come True’. It is not carbon emissions but global warming activism and international climate treaties that are a threat to the nation’s future and the world’s poorest populations. The liberal Eugenicists have latched onto this issue, promoting controls on child birth. 
Recall committee submits response briefs to New Jersey Supreme Court. Our own Andy Schlafly argues that Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has no ground to argue that a petition for a recall election cannot go forward. No less an authority than George Washington said that the US Constitution does allow for the recall of United States Senators. 
Republicans are stepping up their criticism of the Securities and Exchange Commission following reports that senior agency staffers spent hours surfing pornographic websites on government-issued computers while they were supposed to be policing the nation's financial system.

Liberal Censorship Department: Evangelist Franklin Graham said Thursday that he regrets the Army's decision to rescind its invitation to him for the Pentagon's National Day of Prayer service on May 6, but expressed "strong support" for the U.S. military. The Army has not officially confirmed whether it withdrew the invitation to Graham to be honorary chairman at the event amid complaints from Muslim members of the military about his description of Islam as an evil religion.

The teachers union in New Jersey is having a complete meltdown over Governor Chris Christie's fiscal policies. In an obnoxious display of liberalism, they have resorted to all sorts of childish ridiculing and obscenity-laced name calling. All this because they are unwilling to give concessions on a pay freeze to help the state's finances. Teacher union members work just 180 days of the year, most have free health benefits and yearly wage increases. 
The Conservapedia Anti-abortion Project is picking up steam. Conservapedia has started to make phone calls to the pro-life community and there appears to be some interest in contributing to the Conservapedia Anti-abortion Project.
Conservapedia encourages members of its pro-life audience to consider contributing to the project. It certainly appears as if your pro-life/anti-abortion content could reach a very wide audience. Conservapedia wishes to go full steam ahead on this exciting project.
It appears as if both the political left and the political right are beginning to perceive the atheist and evolutionist Richard Dawkins as a "clown". The Huffington Post and the Canadian publication the National Post have both referred to Richard Dawkins as a "clown" recently.
Conservapedia is considering adding material to its Richard Dawkins article in order to incorporate the growing perception among the public that Dawkins is a clown. Dawkins certainly has a penchant for engaging in publicity stunts, yet in far too many cases he fails to provide the public with anything of real importance and substance.
Arizona Legislature Passes ‘Birther Bill’ Demanding Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate.  In Congress Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.), sponsor of the House bill, which has attracted 11 co-sponsors, said the Arizona House-passed measure would help clarify murky guidelines about presidential eligibility. 
General Motors has repaid (years ahead of schedule) the $8.1 billion in loans it got from the U.S. and Canadian governments. A move its CEO says is a sign automaker is on the road to recovery. Now it only has $55 Billion to raise and redeem the stock both countries hold. Until then its really Obama Motors ! 
A British teenager throws an egg at Conservative Party leader David Cameron. Liberal values are great, aren't they?  The reaction by the liberal media and police would have been very different if an egg had been thrown at a liberal politician.

"I shared with them their suffering, and emotionally prayed with them, assuring them of church action," Benedict said.

Conservapedia is currently exploring gaining a key editor for the Conservapedia Anti-abortion Project much like it did for its intelligent design article. Conservapedia has in mind a good friend of one of the Conservapedia administrators who has a history of being involved in the pro-life movement. A good general can certainly make a difference in various battles of the culture war and Conservapedia may soon have its George S. Patton for the Conservapedia Anti-abortion Project!
If you want to be a General Dwight D. Eisenhower or General Douglas MacArthur involved in the Conservapedia Anti-Abortion Project, sign up to be a Conservapedia editor and start editing! And of course, Conservapedia is also looking for a Joan of Arc and a Deborah for this project as well!
Sarah Palin Set to Take Stand in E-Mail Hacking / Cyber Vandalism Trial. Jury selection begins Tuesday and Palin's testimony could soon follow in the case against 22-year-old David Kernell. He was a University of Tennessee student majoring in economics when prosecutors say he exhibited liberal values and hacked into the Yahoo! account Palin sometimes used for state business. At the time she was Alaska's governor and the GOP candidate for vice president. The four felony charges—identity theft, wire fraud, intentionally accessing Palin's e-mail account without authorization and obstructing an FBI investigation—carry a maximum total sentence of 50 years.
U.N. ups peacekeeping budget for Haiti by millions — and you won't believe where most of its going... The United Nations has quietly upped this year's peacekeeping budget for earthquake-shattered Haiti to $732.4 million, with two-thirds of that amount going for the salary, perks and upkeep of its own personnel, NOT residents of the devastated island. Typical Liberal greed.

Dr. Kurtz recently described this humiliating event as a "shattering blow". The Buffalo News claims Kurtz is "as intellectually vibrant as ever" despite the fact that Dr. Kurtz failed to be shrewd enough to prevent his humbling ousting from his leadership position. Meanwhile, God continues to sit securely on His throne.
A national group that helps Republicans get elected to the Senate is pressuring RINO Charlie Crist to drop out of the Florida Senate race rather than run as an independent.

Impeached President Bill Clinton warns Conservative media and the Tea parties that government demonstrations fuel violence.  Yet, 1000 Tea parties were held on April 15th and there were zero arrests.  If you look closely, the only violence being waged is by moronic liberals  who attack those people  with whom they disagree.
U.K. PM Gordon Brown says Britain is sending Royal Navy warships to rescue Britons stranded by the volcanic ash cloud. Brown says the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal and HMS Ocean will be sent across the English Channel. A third ship may also be deployed. Air space in countries including Britain, France, Germany, and the Netherlands — home to Europe's largest airports — have been closed for days, stranding millions of people.  Translation: on the verge of an election, Brown is trying to rescue himself.

The atheist community at YouTube demonstrates the utter futility and weakness of the atheism. Belief in God is once again triumphant. Conservapedia has learned that Christian channels at YouTube are systematically being shut down at YouTube through false copyright claims. Recently, the popular Christian YouTube channel JezuzFreek777 was shut down through false copyright claim notices.VIDEO
Conservapedia is not aware of any widespread denunciation of the Christian channels being shutdown among the leading atheism channels at YouTube. It appears as if many atheists understand the weakness of the atheism and feel the atheist community needs to resort to dirty censorship tactics. One Christian declares on his YouTube channel, "Destroy this YouTube account, and in three days I will raise up another one just like it. AMEN."
"Following the lead of Wall Street and the banking industry, students at Syracuse University are looking for a bailout: Save them from the university's choice of commencement speaker. ... the tension escalated as Take Back Commencement staged a dance-party protest at 2 p.m. on the stairs of the university's Hendricks Chapel." 
Usama Bin Laden Had a Facebook Page ! Named "The leader of the Mujahideen, Osama bin Laden." The profile became active on March 25 and had already attracted nearly 1,000 extremists. The al Qaeda leader, or someone posing as him, was using the social-networking site as a platform to show videos and speeches to Islamic militants—until Facebook shut him down, that is. 
"The Colorado Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the University of Colorado has no authority to bar students or visitors from lawfully carrying guns on campus."  Liberal gun control types had tried to exploit the Virginia Tech massacre to deprive students of their right to self-defense. The reality is that self-defense helps avert such tragedies.
The liberal court nominee Goodwin Liu answers questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee today, "in an intensifying test of [ Obama's ] ability to install an unabashed liberal. ... GOP senators told Liu he had no judicial experience, and said they worried he would give the government sweeping powers over Americans' lives." 
Airline Flight Disruptions in Europe Get Even Worse. Eurocontrol, the European air traffic agency, said there would be no relief today from the massive flight disruptions that have upended travel in Europe and reverberated throughout the world due to the huge volcanic eruption in Iceland.  In fact, it said disruptions would be even worse than Thursday—when over half a dozen European nations closed their air space—and the delays would continue into Saturday. Hundreds of thousands of air travelers have been stranded or forced to cancel business and holiday travel.
RINO Charlie Crist vetoed a bill Thursday backed by Republicans; his conservative mentor objected to this veto and resigned as his campaign chairman. "The entire episode is only encouraging speculation Crist will soon abandon the GOP Senate primary and run as an independent." 
A middle school teacher in Oregon who announced his intention "to dismantle and demolish the Tea Party" on his "Crash the Tea Party" Web site is under investigation by his state's Teacher Standards & Practices Commission. He has said he would seek to embarrass Tea Partiers by attending their rallies dressed as Adolf Hitler, carrying signs bearing racist, sexist and anti-gay epithets, and acting as offensively as possible — anything short of throwing punches. Classy. Most likely belongs to a Internet vandal site as well. UPDATE: The "teacher" has been placed on administrative leave with pay until his school district finishes its investigation and decides his fate. 
A Judge Too Far (Left): Barack Obama's nominee for the Federal Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, suggests the sort of nominee we may expect for the Supreme Court. His Appeals Court nominee is guided by the critical studies paradigm of justice, notoriously advocated by Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes: all that counts is, not what the Constitution says, but who has the power to impose his social and political views. 
A liberal federal judge in Wisconsin has ruled in a 66-page opinion issued Thursday. U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb said the holiday violates the "establishment clause" of the First Amendment, which creates a separation of church and state. The opinion comes in a case filed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based group of self-described "atheists" and "agnostics."

51% of voters in New Jersey, a state Barack Obama carried handily in 2008, now favor repeal of the recently passed national health care bill - Obamacare. That includes 41% who strongly favor repeal. Support for repeal is lower in New Jersey than it is nationally. Three weeks after passage of the health care bill, 58% of voters nationwide favor its repeal ! 
Google Germany ranks the Conservapedia evolution article #8 out of 52,400,000 search results for the search "theory of evolution" as can be seen HERE. It appears as if some Germans acknowledge that Adolf Hitler was a staunch evolutionary racist. The infamous Dr. Josef Mengele was a staunch evolutionary racist as well.
Evolutionists admit what Creationists stated from the start: recently unearthed fossil is no missing link. As usual, evolutionary explanations have to grow more unwieldy to try to cope with the new discovery. "This fossil has been surrounded by the standard overhype we've come to expect from those on a campaign to evangelize for Darwin." 
After popular Attorney General Richard Blumenthal jumped into the race to succeed Senator Chris Dodd, Democrats in Washington immediately crossed the Connecticut seat off their list of ones to worry about. But signs of trouble have quickly emerged. He flopped in his first televised debate against an obscure primary opponent, and appears almost incapable of offering concise answers to even the most predictable questions, like why he is running for the Senate. Some Democrats are calling him "Martha Coakley in pants." 
Obamacare Law Continues To Stir More Opposition. New poll finds more now opposed to Obama's overhaul than before he signed the bill — a clear indication it has become a liability for Democrats. A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Americans oppose the health care remake 50 percent to 39%. Before a divided Congress finally passed the bill and Obama signed it at a jubilant White House ceremony last month, public opinion was about evenly split. Disapproval for Obama's handling of health care also increased from 46 percent in early March before he signed the bill, to 52 percent currently—a level not seen since last summer's angry town hall meetings. 
United Kingdom Airports Closed Due to Volcanic Ash. All London airports were set to close today (Thursday) after a massive cloud of ash from a volcano in Iceland drifted into U.K. airspace. Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Belfast airports were completely shut, as well as Aberdeen Airport in northern Scotland and Newcastle Airport in northern England. 
It appears it may not take much for Conservapedia to expand its influence concerning the evolution issue on the American portion of the internet. Conservapedia is considering expanding its collection of articles that address the creation vs. evolution issue. In addition, Conservapedia is also considering expanding its content that addresses the creation vs. evolution controversy in the United States. Bing USA already ranks the Conservapedia in its top 10 search results for the search result "evolution" as can be seen HERE.
Americans are now pretty evenly divided about whether they would rather have Barack Obama or George W. Bush in the White House. 48% prefer Obama while 46% say they would rather have the old President back.  Pit maverick Republican Congressman Ron Paul against President Obama in a hypothetical 2012 election match-up, and the race is – virtually dead even. 
RINO-turned-pro-abort Mark Parkinson, Governor of Kansas, hints that he will veto a pro-life bill on Thursday.  But Parkinson has so little chance of being re-elected that he's not even running, and the legislature may have enough votes to override a veto. Pro-lifer Sam Brownback will win that seat in November.

Conservatives are favored by college students in the otherwise liberal Britain! "The poll ... questioned almost 14,000 final year university students - the majority of whom have grown up under a Labour government and are voting for the first time." 
The British college students favor conservatives over liberals by a 3:2 margin.
Obama Foreclosure Aid Leaves Millions Out In The Street. The Congressional Oversight Panel says in a report released Wednesday that the Obama administration projects only one million families will end up with lower monthly payments as a result of the program. The report says six million families are more than two months behind with their payments, and 200,000 more families receive foreclosure notices each month. A year and a half after launching the program, "Treasury is still fighting to get its foreclosure programs off the ground," Elizabeth Warren, who heads the independent panel set up by Congress, told reporters Tuesday. 
FROM NEW DEAL TO BAD DEAL: Government as the Fourth Bubble. "The next few days offer an appropriate time to reassess government as something we, in effect, purchase through our taxes. April 15th is an obvious date because it is the annual day when income taxes are due. April 18th is equally important because it will be the 235th anniversary of American militia firing “the shot heard round the world” when they stood up to British professional soldiers at Concord and Lexington and drove them back into Boston." Read on....
"Commission: Title IX interpretation unnecessarily hurts men's sports"  No kidding: many hundreds of men's sports teams have been eliminated due to mindless equality demanded by feminists, requiring schools to equate sports participation by gender to class enrollment by gender, even though men are more interested in sports than women. Undeterred, feminists and the feminist-controlled NCAA criticize the Commission's report.
New Jersey Governor Undeterred by Teachers Union Refusal to Fire Leader Who Prayed for His Death. Republican Gov. Chris Christie refused to back down Tuesday from his demand that teachers take a pay freeze and start contributing to their health care benefits as the state teachers union declined to take action against a local boss who prayed for the governor's death.

A school superintendent in New Jersey says a "misunderstanding" led an elementary school teacher to mandate that all students—including young boys—dress as women in a now-canceled fashion show to honor Women's History Month. More Liberal values. 
Conservative Rand Paul holds a stunning 15-point lead over the Kentucky Secretary of State RINO Trey Grayson for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.  We add Rand Paul to Presidential Candidates, 2012, as he could inherit the massive support for Ron Paul.
FBI Making "Steady Progress" Toward Releasing Massive Ted Kennedy File. The FBI records center is making "steady progress" toward completing its review of Ted Kennedy's 3,000-page file and plans to release it well before the end of the year, a records official said. 
Real personal income for Americans - excluding government payouts such as Social Security - has fallen by 3.2 percent since President Obama took office in January 2009, according to the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis. "This is hardly surprising," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, an economist and former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. "Under President Obama, only federal spending is going up; jobs, business startups, and incomes are all down. It is proof that the government can't spend its way to prosperity." 
U.K.'s Conservative Party Vows Quick Action To Cut Deficit. Britain's opposition Conservative Party promised on Tuesday to take urgent action to cut the budget deficit to safeguard the country's top-notch credit rating if it wins the parliamentary election on May 6th. Their manifesto included support for public sector workers to set up cooperatives, establishing elected overseers of police forces, and giving local communities the power to veto tax rises and the right to bid to run services provided by the state. Polls show they are leading the Labour Party by 7%. 
Andy Stern, president of the 2.2-million member Service Employees International Union, plans to quit halfway through his term, betraying his supporters. Stern is one of nation's most politically powerful—and polarizing—union leaders, is one of President Barack Obama's closest political allies and a major force in Democratic liberal politics. His union spent at least $60 million to help Obama win the presidency and millions more on House and Senate races around the country. Perhaps Stern plans to put all those millions donated to use by being appointed by Obama to a big political job? 
As expected by conservatives, the talk about Hillary Clinton being nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court was a decoy, probably designed to make the other candidates look more palatable. It won't be Hillary.
Obama White House Science 'Czar' Tells Students: “We (U.S.) can't expect to be number one in everything indefinitely,” radical liberal John Holdren said at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). This is very typical of the liberal "world view" of hating America. 
The atheist Richard Dawkins, illustrating atheism's goal of censorship, is still trying to interfere with the Pope's visit: "Even if the Pope doesn't end up in the dock, and even if the Vatican doesn't cancel the visit, I am optimistic that we shall raise public consciousness to the point where the British government will find it very awkward indeed to go ahead with the Pope's visit, let alone pay for it."  Dawkins, if atheism is so good, why are there no hospitals built by atheists?
Ignorance On The Left: Liberal-progressives, almost universally, misuse the terms Nazi and Nazism as "terms of opprobrium freely, and incorrectly, applied to anyone who questions or opposes liberal-progressive-socialism."  The name Nazi, apparently unknown to liberal-progressives, is a contraction of the full party name, National Socialist German Workers Party. Nazism, in short, is simply one of several varieties of socialism, the ideological faith of liberals. Why this misuse of the words Nazi and Nazism? Read on and the truth will set you free! 
French President Nicolas Sarkozy is widely quoted referring to Barack Obama as "possibly insane." He has the same concerns as many American's -- "Obama is dangerous and has an unwillingness to listen to either reason or logic." 
Leading Republicans hint that they will filibuster an unacceptable nomination by Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court: "The Judiciary Committee's ranking Republican, Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), said that whether the GOP filibusters Obama's eventual nominee is up to the president. Echoing his Republican colleagues, Sessions warned that if the pick does not fall within the mainstream, 'every power should be utilized to protect the Constitution.'" 
66% Say U.S. Is Overtaxed. And it's not the rich saying that. Lower income voters are more likely than others to believe the nation is overtaxed. Among those who consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement, 96% believe the nation is overtaxed, and only 1% disagree. These figures help explain why candidate Barack Obama promised to cut taxes for 95% of all Americans during Election 2008. Currently, only 8% believe their taxes will be cut during the Obama presidency, while 46% expect a tax hike. 
Peter LaBarbera at Americans for Truth sounds the alarm on the pro-homosexual agenda legislation of ENDA which poses a grave threat to religious liberty in America concerning the homosexuality issue. The ENDA legislation could be pushed after the Easter recess in Washington. 
Conservapedia recently updated its homosexuality article with additional information debunking the homosexuality in animals myth. Conservapedia wishes to thank Peter LaBarbera for providing this information at his Americans for Truth blog.
Gregori Perelman, who exemplified the best of the public by posting the greatest proof in a generation directly on the internet, refuses his $1 million prize by the professors who ostracized him. "I don't want to be on display like an animal in a zoo. I'm not a hero of mathematics." 
Public school values: the teachers and administrators all keep their jobs despite how "the investigation has revealed that certain faculty, staff, and administrators of the high school also were alerted to the harassment of Phoebe Prince before her death."  Apparently no atrocity, no matter how bad, can cause a public school teacher or administrator to be fired.
The Conservative Party is on track to oust the Labour Party from power in England at the election on May 6th, leading by a substantial 8 points in the polls. Parliament may see gridlock if the losing liberals refuse to cooperate. 
An Indiana public school board is not giving up its school prayer without a fight. In a rare decision, Greenwood High School is fighting to keep its years-long tradition of holding a student-led prayer during graduation ceremonies. 
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney won the 2010 Southern Republican Leadership Conference straw poll by a single vote to Rep. Ron Paul. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich were tied for third.  Tim Pawlenty, Mike Pence and Rick Santorum received than 4%.
Former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the upcoming lack of any Protestants on the U.S. Supreme Court: "I think that religion should not be the basis for an appointment, but if that were the case, one would expect somewhere in the nine to see a Protestant or two."

"Bart Stupak: Tea Party didn't force me to leave. ... The Tea Party Express -- a bus tour of speakers and performers campaigning against health care supporters in general and Stupak in particular -- was in the middle of a swing through" his district and said Friday that he "was no longer able to hide his betrayal of conservative principles." 
In the coming national healthcare debacle, you can always count on the government to make matters worse. In Massachusetts, the state's individual insurance market effectively shut down Tuesday because Governor Deval Patrick demands to set prices. You have the government interfering with capitalist enterprises and the result is market chaos. 
It's tough for RINOs-turned-Democrats to remember which side is which: liberal Arlen Specter, trailing conservative Pat Toomey in the polls, told his meager audience of only 75 students at Penn State, "I'm proud to be endorsed by the College Republicans." No, Arlen, it was the clueless college Democrats who endorsed you. 
Democrat Representative Alan Grayson throws a tantrum in public. Apparently, Grayson was upset with Orange Country Republicans and hoped to deny them the right to assemble. In the age of video, his childlike antics have reached viral status since being posted to YouTube. 
Maine Has Elevated Liberal Clap-Trap To A High Art: The little girls' room won't be just for little girls anymore, if the Maine Human Rights Commission has its way. The issue came to light last year when the commission ruled that, under the Maine Human Rights Act, a school had discriminated against a 12-year-old transgender boy by denying him access to the girls' bathroom. Now Maine is proposing to ban schools from enforcing gender divisions in sports teams, school organizations, bathrooms and locker rooms. It says forcing a student into a particular room or group because of his or her biological gender amounts to discrimination. 
Voters See Little Hope For Future Thanks To Big-Spending Liberals: 57% Think Next Generation Will Be Worse Off. The poll also finds that 74% of voters think the United States is weaker today than it was 10 years ago. 
Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak, the congressman who led ostensibly pro-life Democrats in the House during health care negotiations before caving into the pro-abortion side, will retire this year. Constituents—indeed, millions of Americans—became outraged when Stupak flipped sides at the last minute on the vote. 
Republicans lead the polling in all four toss-up U.S. Senate races, even in Democratic states:
Missouri (Rasmussen): Blunt (R) 48, Carnahan (D) 42
Pennsylvania (Quinnipiac): Toomey (R) 46, Specter (D) 41
Illinois (PPP): Kirk (R) 37, Giannoulias (D) 33
Colorado (Rasmussen): Norton (R) 46, Bennet (D) 41 
Gingrich Calls Obama "The Most Radical President in American History".
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a potential presidential candidate in 2012, called Obama "The most radical president in American history has now thrown down the gauntlet to the American people: 'I run a machine. I own Washington and there's nothing you can do about it,"' Gingrich said. He urged his fellow Republicans to stop what he called Obama's "secular, socialist machine. He said Obama's policies -- particularly health care and economic stimulus legislation -- have put the United States on the road to socialism. 
Obama: Palin's No Expert on Nuclear Strategy. Obama, dropping precipitously in the polls with over half the country demanding repeal of his Obamacare scam and frightened of her massive popularity, lashed out sharply at Sarah Palin, saying "Last I checked, Palin's not an expert on nukes," Obama told ABC News. "If the secretary of defense and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff are comfortable, I'll take my advice from them and not Sarah Palin." All this is begging the question as to exactly what experience President Obama has.... 
Americans' favorable rating of the Democratic Party dropped to 41% in a late March USA Today/Gallup poll, the lowest point in the 18-year history of this measure.
"Tea Party Leaders Announce New Federation," saying "21 tea party groups around the nation had joined" it. 
There is seemingly endless bad news for Barack Hussein Obama.
Two weeks after President Obama signed the new Obamacare bill, opposition to it remains strong. In addition, the president’s legislative victory did not help his job approval rating, which hit a new low in a Fox / Opinion Dynamics poll released today. The poll also finds more voters would punish rather than reward incumbents who voted for the health care bill, and that the Democratic win in Congress did nothing to energize the party faithful for the midterms. President Obama’s overall job approval rating dropped to a new low of 43%. Nearly half—48% -- disapprove. In mid-March, it was 46-48 percent. His current rating among Democrats (80 percent) and independents (38 percent) are among his lowest ratings with these groups. He is now in single digits among Republicans, 7%. By comparison, former President George W. Bush’s approval among Democrats went as low as 4%. 
"The decision to end most services at St. Vincent's Hospital ... has set off a wave of concern among doctors, nurses and area residents who fear there will be a gap in care" in Greenwich Village.  Does anyone expect liberal charity to build a replacement?
President Obama's decision to reverse 65 years of U.S. nuclear weapons policy and drop most of the nation's deterrence capacity has alarmed critics who say they fear that the United States will now be more vulnerable to attack from would-be nuclear nations. 
55% Say Media Bias Bigger Problem in Politics Than Big $ Contributions. U.S. voters continue to think that media bias is a bigger problem in politics today than big campaign contributions, identical to the finding in August 2008. As far as voters are concerned, liberal is the most unpopular of five common political labels. 62% believe that what the media thinks is more important to the average member of Congress than what voters think. Sixty-seven percent say the news media have too much power and influence over government decisions. 
Obama Economic Adviser Says U.S. Should Consider National Sales Tax! Acknowledging it would be a highly unpopular move, White House economic adviser Paul Volcker said Tuesday the United States should consider imposing a "value-added tax" similar to those charged in Europe to help get the deficit under control. He also said that Congress might also have to consider new taxes on carbon and energy like Obama's proposed Cap and Trade legislation. "It shouldn't surprise anyone that the Obama White House would advocate a European-style tax to help finance their European-style government "Obamacare" plan," said Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. 
More Public Schools Religious Bias & Contempt: The biology textbook, Asking About Life, where Creationism is described as "the biblical myth that the universe was created by the Judeo-Christian God in 7 days." A Knoxville, Tennessee father is asking the local school district to throw out the biased and intolerant text. Yet another example of Liberal intolerance. 
As anticipation grows that Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens—the only experienced military veteran on the High Court—will soon resign, what do the leading contenders for his seat share in common? None served in military, so their nomination would leave the Supreme Court without any military experience.  Par for the course for liberals?
Will Marco Rubio be the conservative who defeats Obama in 2012? Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention explains, "The longer nobody catches fire, the more space there is for Marco." The liberals at MSNBC are worried.
Speculation grows that RINO Charlie Crist, demolished by conservative Marco Rubio “sometimes by breathtakingly large margins,” may file by April 30th to run as an Independent. One little problem: Independents don't like RINOs either.
Arizona and Nevada will be states 15 and 16 to sue the federal government over national healthcare legislation. Democrats have their hands full as Obamacare bankrupts the states with unconstitutional, unfunded mandates. 
Polls: Tea Party Movement Continues To Gain Popularity. According to the Rasmussen survey, 48% of voters said the average Tea Party activist is more aligned with their views on major issues than President Obama. 28% of Americans call themselves "Tea Party" supporters according to Gallup. The survey also found that Tea Party supporters are not disproportionately dominated by any one demographic group. The characteristics of Tea Party supporters—in age, education, income and race—roughly follow the characteristics of the nation as a whole.  Black Tea Party Activists Called "Traitors" By Liberals 
Obamacare Will Permit Sex Offenders to Get Viagra. The Congressional Research Service has confirmed Senator Tom Coburn's assertions that sex offenders not in prison could get Viagra and other drugs treating male dysfunction under health plans subsidized by taxpayer dollars. 
Think liberals want freedom for anyone? This little kid could have grown up in America, maybe preparing for college; instead any possibility of that happening was destroyed by liberals ten years ago this month: 
The D.C. Circuit unanimously invalidated as unconstitutional an attempt by the FCC to regulate net neutrality, which "could doom" liberal attempts to regulate and control the internet. What did the Obama Administration decide to do? Why, go around the court and regulate the Internet as a public utility! 
With Kentucky's Republican primary just six weeks away, both GOP hopefuls for U.S. Senate earn 50% or more of the vote in match-ups with their chief Democratic rivals. The latest Rasmussen survey in the state shows Trey Grayson and Rand Paul with comparable double-digit leads. The Democrats find themselves with support in the mid-30s and face a tough situation on the Healthcare front. In fact, a whopping 62% of Kentucky voters think the Obamacare bill passed by Congress is bad for the country and should be repealed. 
Climate-Data Scandal Far From Over. When a Penn State board of inquiry unilaterally decided that Michael Mann had broken no rules in the climate-data scandal, global-warming alarmists breathed a sigh of relief, thinking the most damaging episode in their effort to "save the planet" was behind them. They were very wrong. 
Liberals insist Fidel Castro is still alive, Communist Cuba insists he is still alive, and Wikipedia insists he is still alive, but he has not been seen publicly in nearly 4 years, and over three years ago U.S. Intelligence said the elderly, ill dictator was "near death." 
Why can't liberals admit the possibility of deceit, just once?
Homosexual agenda claims another victim: "Police say a man who identified himself as one of the first openly gay professional wrestlers was found dead of an apparent suicide in his New York City apartment."  And his suicide was not because he was bullied in school, which is what liberals usually claim in order to promote their harmful agenda further.
Florida House Committee Approves Republican Education Reform Bill Linking Teacher Pay To Student Performance. The legislation would take 5% of a school’s total funding for the creation of performance pay, or salary increases, that are half based on performance factors such as class management, advanced degrees and mastery of the subject, and half based on learning gains by students. Teacher Unions predictably turned out in volume Monday to testify against the bill. 
Pennsylvania Conservative Pat Toomey raised $2.3 million in the 1st quarter of 2010, marking his U.S. Senate campaign’s most successful fundraising quarter to date. That leaves the former congressman with over $4 million cash in hand. Toomey is running for the U.S. senate seat currently occupied by Senator Arlen Specter a RINO turned Democrat and does not have any serious competition in the Republican primary. Specter has the dubious-in-value endorsement of Barack Obama. 
54% Say Violent Video Games Leads to More Violence in Society. Just 27% disagree, while another 19% are not sure. An overwhelming majority (72%) say parents are responsible for limiting the amount of sex and violence children are exposed to. Only 15% place this responsibility on video game makers, while even less (7%) say it’s the government’s job to regulate this area. 
The principal resigned and, with two undisclosed public school officials, has gone on paid administrative leave, yet the public cannot even learn the reason why.  Who's in charge of our public schools, and where is the accountability?
Poll: Meg Whitman edging Jerry Brown in California Governor's Race. The results of the USC-Los Angeles Times poll, released Monday, are similar to the results of other recent surveys. Whitman led Brown 44 percent to 41%. Whitman, the former chief executive of eBay, has advertised heavily after giving her campaign $39 million. The poll shows her leading state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner by 40 points in the GOP primary. 
The New Jersey recall fight goes to the next level: Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) formally appeals to New Jersey's Supreme Court the decision allowing recall petition signature gathering to begin. Conservapedia's own Andy Schlafly will respond. 
To avoid the recall, U.S. Senator Menendez argues in his appeal: "At issue here is whether Article I, Paragraph 2b of the New Jersey Constitution, regarding the recall of United States senators, is valid under the U.S. Constitution."
Another reason why these people need to go: a Democratic Congressman stated that he doesn't care about the Constitution, in front of his constituents: 
Rasmussen Reports has the Tea Party at 48%, more popular than the U.S. President at 44%. “The American people don’t want to be governed from the left, the right, or the center. They want to govern themselves.” 
A geochemist and former French science minister's bestseller debunks claims of man-made global warming. So how do liberal scientists respond? "More than 400 French climate scientists" denounce the book, L'imposture climatique (The Climate Fraud), and request an expression of "confidence in the climate research community." 
Take a "Master Orator" without a Teleprompter and Canned Speech. What do you get? Obama's bizarre, disjointed and rambling 17-minute, two-thousand-five-hundred word nonsensical response to woman's claim of being 'over-taxed', that's what. A woman named Doris stood to ask the president whether it was a "wise decision to add more taxes to us with the health care" package. "We are over-taxed as it is," Doris said bluntly. The response she got was simply silly, confusing liberal clap-trap. VIDEO  Full 17 minutes here.
First Shot in Battle Over Next Supreme Court Nominee Fired: Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, speaking on "Fox News Sunday", warned President Obama not to try nominating anyone "overly ideological" to replace Justice John Paul Stevens, who is known as the leader of the liberal wing of the Supreme Court of the United States. 
Four in 10 Tea Party members are either Democrats or Independents, according to a new national survey. The group is united around two issues – the economy/jobs and reducing the deficit. They believe that cutting spending is the key to job creation and favor tax cuts as the best way to stimulate the economy. 
Many celebrated sunrise Easter services today: "People like what the sunrise represents," observed one pastor in Pennsylvania. "The tomb is empty and Christ is risen. People like to share that in the early morning."
"Local churches prepared for throngs of worshipers ... In the last year Central Christian has averaged 2,100 people who regularly attend Sunday services, which is a 10 percent increase from the 1,900 average the year before. ... Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church is expecting between 1,500 and 1,600 people to attend this year’s Easter service."  How often do atheists gather to see and help each other?
An Easter present from Conservapedia to Christian apologists: A 15-year-old Christian young man totally demolishes the folly of two adult atheists on a popular atheist radio program concerning the resurrection of Jesus Christ and shows them to be disingenuous and incompetent fools.  It was both painful and hilarious to hear a 15-year-old publicly give an intellectual spanking to two adult atheists.
R.I.P.: The developer of the first affordable personal computer, Henry Edward Roberts, has died at age 68. He was the first to employ Microsoft founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen, who later licensed work that Roberts felt belonged to him. Subsequently, Microsoft's monopoly destroyed Netscape, and by overcharging built a fortune later used to buy a "chair" for atheist Richard Dawkins and liberal approaches to education.
Roberts eventually became a physician to help patients, graduating first in his medical school class.
Shocking statistic of the week: "students from the lowest quartile of socioeconomic status are four times more likely to graduate from college if they had attended a private school rather than a public school (24.4 percent vs. 6.6 percent)."  Thank you, teachers' unions!
State government employees increasingly face mandatory unpaid days off from work each month ("furloughs"), due to budget deficits. No problem: casinos are offering discounts to attract business from the state workers! 
Already the battle lines are being drawn for a massive struggle over filling the vacancy to be left by U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens' expected retirement, and he has not even retired yet!  Justice Stevens is the only veteran on the Court, and the Democrats have not nominated a veteran in nearly a half-century.
A recent study shows a major weakness in secularist ideology. According to recent research by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, in the United States, a majority of those surveyed who were raised in atheist or agnostic households, or where there was no specific religious attachment, later chose to join a religious faith. The YouTube video producer Shockofgod cites the Conservapedia atheism article concerning the weakness of secularistic and atheistic thinking. Perhaps, this is why the prominent atheist Richard Dawkins has declined so many debate offers from intellectuals on the theism side of the aisle. The YouTube producer Shockofgod recently highlighted how cowardly The Atheist Experience television show is for not allowing theist guests on their show. Conservapedia could carve out of a banana an ideology with more backbone than atheism!
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will campaign with Senate candidate Marco Rubio. The two will appear together Monday in Miami, where Giuliani is expected to endorse Rubio in the Republican primary against Gov. Charlie Crist. In a statement released by the Rubio campaign, Giuliani said, "Marco Rubio is one of the Republican Party’s true rising stars. He’s a bold leader who will bring common sense to Washington where it’s badly needed." 
Today is Good Friday.
Good Friday is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day Christians commemorate the Passion of Christ, or suffering, and death on the Cross of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the act that brought salvation to all who believe. Many Christians spend this day in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering of Christ on the cross:
- Surely he took up our infirmities
- and carried our sorrows,
- yet we considered him stricken by God,
- smitten by him, and afflicted.
- But he was pierced for our transgressions,
- he was crushed for our iniquities;
- the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
- and by his wounds we are healed.
The unemployment rate stayed at 9.7% in March. Temporary help services and health care continued to add jobs over the month. Employment in federal government also rose, reflecting the hiring of temporary workers for Census 2010. Employment continued to decline in financial activities and in information. 
Congressman Releases Report Showing ACORN Now Operates Under Different Names. California Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, released a report Thursday that he says proves the controversial community activist organization ACORN is alive and well, contrary to its announcement that it is disbanding. 
More Than 70 Million Doses of H1N1 Vaccine May Have to Be Discarded. When the H1N1 vaccine first became available last fall, the doses were worth their weight in gold to many people desperate to get the shot, but now it’s being reported the government is about to throw away millions of those “precious” vaccines. According to a report in the Washington Post, less than half of the 229 million doses of the vaccine the government bought to fight the virus have been administered. 
The conservative-leaning Wall Street Journal goes after the base of the liberal New York Times: "The Wall Street Journal is cutting new subscription prices by as much as 80 percent in some cases as it prepares to confront its rival, the New York Times, with a New York City edition." 
Ron Huberman, Chicago's public school CEO has called on parents, teachers, students, central office employees, and ordinary taxpayers to do their part to help the district erase a $900 million budget deficit. While the school system is broke, the district's highest-ranking officials got healthy raises this year— and one of the biggest went to Huberman.  So much for putting the students' education first.
When the Democrats enacted ObamaCare, they nationalized the student loan industry. The Congressional Budget Office is estimating that it will add $52 billion to the national debt over ten years. 
N.Y. Times Still Pays Obama's Nominee to Army Post: President Obama's nominee for U.S. Army general counsel, who pledges to investigate anyone leaking military secrets to the media, will receive between $1 million and $5 million in deferred compensation from the New York Times Company even as he works for the government, records obtained by The Washington Times show. 
A conservative public school teacher, Jaime Escalante, made famous by "Stand and Deliver," has passed away. He propelled minority students in California to the highest levels of performance in calculus, but untold by Hollywood is how the liberals then ostracized him and drove him back to Bolivia. 
Looking increasingly like a RINO, NJ Governor Chris Christie's approval rating drops precipitously to 43% after he suspends tax rebates and one of his liberal nominations is returned to committee. 
Liberals are trying hard to find an opponent for conservative congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Al Franken has endorsed Tarryl Clark, but she has a formidable opponent in Dr. Maureen Reed in the August Democratic primary. 
Liberals Bullying Obamacare Foes? The CEOs of some of the country's biggest companies are being summoned to Washington by Congressman Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, to defend claims that the health care reform law would cost them millions—a move Republicans say amounts to intimidation. Since when did it become acceptable to force citizens to defend their concerns before a government tribunal? 
With the liberal left, it's all about the money: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman chimes in on the "death panels" that are a part of Obamacare..."The advisory panel which has the ability to make more or less binding judgments on saying this particular expensive treatment actually doesn't do any good medically and so we are not going to pay for it. That is actually going to save quite a lot of money." 
Liberal British politicians pathetically try to make the Climategate scandal go away with a 60-page report that reinterprets the term "trick" and the phrase "hide the decline" in an email by Professor Phil Jones.  But "MP Graham Stringer, widely recognized for insightful questioning of Jones at the Parliamentary Inquiry, voted against acceptance of the Parliamentary Inquiry report, against the inclusion of the Summary and against a number of individual items."  The media ignore Graham Stringer's analysis altogether. 
A Florida Public school teacher and his son have been arrested on child pornography charges. The 58 year-old second grade teacher has been put on paid administrative leave pending an internal investigation by the Orange County Public Schools. 
Once Again, What is Socialism?
The Commonly Used Liberal Definition Is Wrong.
News reporters, editorialists, academics, and liberal-progressive politicians generally deny that the Obama administration is socialistic. Socialism, they say, is a political state in which the government owns the means of production and distribution of goods and services. That definition is confuted by the earliest theoretical writings on socialism. In France, Henri de Saint-Simon, in the first decades of the 1800s, and his pupil and colleague Auguste Comte, in the 1820s and 30s, along with Robert Owen contemporaneously in England, stated that the essential feature of what Owen called socialism is government regulation of the means of production and distribution. 
Sallie Mae Blames 2,500 Layoffs on Obama's Student Loan "Overhaul". "This legislation will force Sallie Mae to reduce our 8,600-person workforce by 2,500," Conwey Casillas, Vice President of Sallie Mae Public Affairs, said in a statement to Fox News. Sallie Mae has been outspoken in its opposition to the plan, calling it a "government takeover" just last month. Another 2,500 jobs gone. 
Conservapedia has initiated a campaign to expand its offering on information relating to the subject of abortion. Conservapedia editors are encouraged to create high quality articles on the subjects located HERE.
Hard-hitting reality says, "It Was A Republic, But We Couldn’t Keep It." Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and gang have run America directly on this liberal path of socialism. But Americans refuse to lay down and accept their outcome. The article does not mention the type of candidates needed, but the people that support the principles of the Tea party are working for change the Founding Fathers intended. Never give up. 
Conservative Jon Runyan — "one of the NFL’s roughest, toughest players" — is on track to oust the Democratic incumbent in Congress. "So will he run a dirty campaign? 'I don’t know. We'll see how it goes,' he said, adding: 'I’m not saying no to it.'" 
NASA Data Worse Than Climategate Data, Space Agency Admits. NASA was able to put a man on the Moon, but the space agency can't tell you what the temperature was when it did. By its own admission, NASA's temperature records are in even worse shape than the besmirched Climate-gate data. 
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) became the first medical society to sue to overturn the newly enacted health care bill. “Courts should not allow this massive intrusion into the practice of medicine and the rights of patients,” and “There will be a dire shortage of physicians if the PPACA becomes effective and is not overturned by the courts.” 
With Every Obama Intervention, Concerns Build Over Size of Federal Government.
Health care. The auto industry. Real estate. Wall Street. As the Obama administration increases regulation and pumps up taxpayer aid in these sectors and beyond, critics say the president is expanding the federal government to unprecedented levels. "This administration seems to want to bail out anybody who'll give it some votes. Chrysler, homeowners, whoever has an open hand," said Peter Morici, business professor at the University of Maryland. 
A new Mason Dixon poll shows that in Florida 54% oppose the passed health care bill, and among people over 65, that number rises to 65%, and also that 52% oppose President Obama. These numbers are especially bad for Sen. Ben Nelson, who only enjoys a 36% approval rating, dropping to 29% among seniors. Seniors are those who vote in highest percentages.
Achtung, Al Gore ! The Germans Are Giving Up On The Global Warming Scam.
German citizens are rapidly losing faith in global warming following the many Climate-gate scandals, according to a new report in Der Spiegel. The report indicates that just 42% of Germans are worried about global warming, down substantially from the 62% that expressed concern with the state of the environment in 2006. Many people have little faith in the information and prognosis of climate change researchers, news site The Local explained, with a third questioned in the survey not giving them credence. 
Arizona Rancher's Killing Sparks Calls to Beef Up Border Security. Three members of New Mexico's congressional delegation have asked for an increase in the Border Patrol's presence, and former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo called on Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to dispatch the National Guard to the Arizona border. 
Less than a week after President Obama signed the Obamacare scam bill into law, more voters than ever say he is governing like a partisan Democrat. 56% of likely voters believe the president is governing like a partisan Democrat, up three points over the past month and the highest level measured since he took office in January 2009. The week after his inauguration, just 39% of voters felt that way. 
9 Charged in Suicide of Bullied Teen Phoebe Prince. Nine teens have been charged in the "unrelenting" bullying of a teenage girl from Ireland who killed herself after being raped and enduring months of torment by classmates in person and online, a prosecutor said today. The Massachusetts Legislature cited Prince's death and the apparent suicide of 11-year-old Carl Walker-Hoover of Springfield last year when members passed Cyber-bullying legislation earlier this month. 
"The 'Tea Party Express' was greeted by about 1,200 to 1,500 supporters as it rolled into Phoenix on Sunday, the third stop on a three-week, cross-country tour that ends in Washington, D.C., on April 15."  Obama was unable to fill an auditorium in Boston when he campaigned against Scott Brown.
Self-serving liberals exploit the upcoming election in the U.K. by disrupting the nation with national rail and airline strikes. As thousands are disrupted and hurt, the liberal Gordon Brown could cave in to save his own political skin. 
Los Angeles Unified School District officials and employee union announced an agreement to cut five days from this school year and seven days next year to keep up to 2,100 union jobs. The district, the second largest in the nation, is facing a $640-million deficit. Liberal public school boards always talk about being for education and the kids. Here their deceit clearly shows they are dedicated to labor unions. Schools should be adding days, not cutting them. More parents will now consider homeschooling where they can control their child's educational quality, not unions! 
The Vision Victory YouTube channel, which has had a better than average forecasting ability relative to the liberal mainstream Keynsian economists, has issued the following message: "ALERT! Treasury Yields Begin to Rise, U.S. Default by Inflation Inevitable". It appears as if an economic python may be starting to wrap around the infamous ObamaCare and soon start slowly squeezing the life out of it.
American Voters Say Tea Party Movement Understands Issues Better Than Congress !
The latest Rasmussen Reports national survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation. From 1776 onward, The Best of the Public is always out-in-front and finds the truth! 
Leading Intelligent Design advocate, Stephen Meyer, challenges Dr. Francisco Ayala, former President of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), to debate. Will Dr. Ayala dodge this debate offer like Richard Dawkins dodges some of his prominent debate challengers? Conservapedia encourages members of the public to start a petition for Ayala to accept the Meyer intelligent design debate offer at Petition Spot. Message to Dr. Ayala: Conservapedia thinks it is time for you to come out of your intellectual bunny hole!
The bailout from Heaven is greater than all the dollars poured out by the administration, and a lone woman has been standing near the White House - enduring threats, harassment, and worse - proclaiming just that: 
Central Michigan University students participate in around-the-clock Bible reading: "We believe the Word of God has the power to transform lives and our hope through this event is to give our members a passion for the Bible like they've never had before, and to help others discover the joy that it can bring."  College students are not as liberal as the media pretend.
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9)
On This Day, March 28th :

After the Senate passed a "fix-it" bill Thursday to make changes to the new Obamacare law, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Montana., chairman of the influential Finance Committee, said the overhaul was an "income shift" to help the poor. ""Too often, much of late, the last couple three years, the mal-distribution of income in American is gone up way too much, the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy and the middle income class is left behind," he said. "Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America."
