Gay marriage: a Trojan Horse Movement Aimed at the Heart of our Constitution

Keyes-Alan-WND-Interview-1411

Arabs Stand With Israel Against Obama

Gary Sinise Dresses Down Howard Dean (over Chris Kyle & American Sniper)

garysinise

DC Independent Examiner Perhaps we should give Howard Dean a break. He is a serial liar and goes off on unhinged rants based on "facts" with no more connection to reality than Disneyland. His behavior can often only be described as lunatic. So perhaps we should just pity the obviously deranged man, say a prayer for him to be restored to sanity, or at least the proper balance of meds. Anyway, feeling it … [Read more...]

Even if we win, it will require a massive effort to put a roadblock in front of the Obama administration's relentless efforts to … [Read more...]
