1. Billy Graham’s Son Is Too Christian For Barack Obama’s Army

Billy Graham’s son Franklin, a solid evangelist in his own right, was invited to give the address at the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer service.Barack Obama’s administration has revoked the invitation.Why? Well, it turns out Franklin Graham really believes in Christ and holds that Christ really is “they way and the truth and the life.”Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. GM Did Not Really Pay Back Its Loan

If you own a GM vehicle and they have your email address, you’ve gotten a nice email in the past few days that they paid back their bailout loan from the federal government.A lie. Well, technically true, but a lie.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. To the Senate GOP Leadership, There Ain’t Nothing Like Having Someone with 100% Name ID Who Can’t Win a Primary Givin’ Them Advice

There is a pattern shaping up with Mitch McConnell’s increasingly feckless leadership in the United States Senate Republican Conference.Judd Gregg bails to go work for Obama only to return. Mitch McConnell has him as a “counsel” to the Senate GOP.Bob Bennett, about to be thrown out of office by the Republican voters of Utah, is a “counsel” to the Senate GOP.Today, Mitch McConnell is naming another counsel — one who, despite near 100% name ID among voters could not even win a Republican Primary.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Women Can Have It All? Only If You Abort, Claim Pro-Abortion Feminists

Last week, an ad campaign aimed at helping women learn about post-abortion syndrome exposed the fact that modern day Feminists rejoice at abortion for convenience and that they are anything but “pro-women”. I wrote about it here and those same feminists, and others, were none too pleased with me.While they blatantly ignored my point regarding post-abortion syndrome and the damage it does to women, they actually ended up merely validating my claims and confirming that they do, in fact, rejoice at the aborting of a child for convenience sake. With their rationalizations (term used loosely) for the same, they also exposed that they are not just pro-abortion, but they are also misogynists who believe that pregnant women and Mothers are somehow non-functional and disabled.Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Rick Perry – Saying the Right Things

There is a great deal of angst about the state of affairs in Washington these days – and more books, websites, posts, tweets and opinions generally about what to do about it. But for the most part, for a host of reasons, most of those opinions focus on Washington itself. But not – at least not for today – those of Texas Governor Rick Perry. Perry is in the heat of a general election campaign against 3 term Houston mayor Bill White after having knocked off the one time seemingly invincible Kay Bailey Hutchison in the primary, and as such, he’s focused on Texas.But his focus on Texas goes deeper than his current race for governor. He understands that for America to be strong – that states need to do their part, and Texas is central to that effort. In an interview this past week conducted jointly by Newsweek Magazine and theTexas Tribune online, the Governor said some very interesting and important things about the future of America.Please click here for the rest of the post.

6. Cantwell-Collins and Sigourney Weaver

There is a unique strategy shaping up in the United States Senate to get cap-and-tax passed. Lindsey Graham is going to go to the extreme side.Graham’s support of the cap-and-tax global warming bill that passed the House of Representatives is the left’s dream version of a “climate change” bill, but the realists know it is not going to pass. Graham is going to offer a tweaked version of the cap-and-tax plan on Monday.So here’s the strategy.Please click here for the rest of the post.
