By Amanda Hill I will point out the obvious; I love keeping up to date on politics and social issues in this country. To my surprise though, I have become increasingly sickened and exhausted when watching or reading any type of news, no matter the network or source. It seems that the last six months or so have been a constant collection of leftist acts of moral lows and American firsts. All this has me posing the question of, "When will Americans stand firm and say enough is enough of the immorality of our society?" Or in fact, will that ever happen? Is it too late? The last presidential election was hope-killing enough since hundreds of thousands of Americans whose self and family suffered during the recession, are again forced to face more lingering questions of stability for [...]

Adolf Hitler is running for election in a state in northeast India – and he’s going up against Frankenstein. Adolf Lu Hitler-Marak and Frankenstein Momin are competing against candidates named Process, Highlander, Predecessor and Fairly Bert in the Meghalaya state’s legislative assembly elections this weekend. The region’s unusual names stem from the state’s close historical links with Britain, explains Agence France-Presse: in colonial times, missionaries and soldiers would visit the hilly state’s capital Shillong, known as the “Scotland of the East,” to escape the overbearing heat of much of the country, and its residents began naming their children with random English words as a nod to that influence.

By Joe Keck I love Ann Coulter. Always have. Still do. And I'm not only speaking libido, here (I kind of got a thing for her). I've been one of her biggest champions, defended her when my friends have attacked her, and I've read most of her books. But with her Nov. 21, 2012 column on her website, Romney was not the problem, she has greatly disappointed me. I did agree with some of what she said, but this piece reads like all of the 'Establishment' Elitist Neo-Cons. They, and her article mentioned above, seem to be saying that we strong, Tea-Party types need to lighten up a bit on our hard-line conservative views. We need to 'get with the program,' not be so staunch and staid in our ideals. Join the twenty first century, come out of our troglodyte cave. As Coulter [...]

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Governor Nikki Haley today released the following statement regarding the process of filling the vacancy created by U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s retirement: South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley Photo Credit: Albert N. Milliron “As I continue to consider the impending U.S. Senate vacancy, many have discussed the possibility of a ‘placeholder’ appointee who would pledge to serve for only two years and not seek election to the seat in 2014. While there are some good arguments in favor of that approach, I believe the better case is against it. “I do not want to tie the next U.S. Senator from South Carolina's hands regarding future office. I do not want to deprive our state’s citizens of the chance to render their judgment on the appointee’s performance [...]
By Joe Keck Well, I've had time to process our recent election and its results, and have done a bit of soul-searching, given it some serious gray matter and upon reflection, come to a conclusion. It's over. Now when I say, "It's over," I don't mean to sound like some cuckold, angry and hurt because my Republican Party has cheated on me AGAIN by nominating another RINO. Nor am I bitter because my candidate was rejected. My candidate wasn't rejected. I didn't vote for Obama and I didn't vote for Romney. Reason being, both of them are pro-abortion. Obama, proudly so, and Romney, although coquettish and demure like some teenage girl on her first date, still, he is in favor of taking the lives of babies. Oh not babies that are wanted. No no. Those babies get to live. [...]
Congressman Allen West, “We will not allow an Al Franken-Norm Coleman to happen here.” The characters in the latest example of South Florida’s dysfunctional election system — recall the Bush v. Gore debacle in 2000 — are worthy of a Carl Hiaasen potboiler. Congressman Allen West, an outspoken tea-party favorite whose district was pushed into largely new territory by redistricting, is claiming that massive voter irregularities are robbing him of his seat. Democrat Patrick Murphy, who leads West by some 2,000 votes, is trying to stop a full recount of controversial early ballots cast in St. Lucie County. His current victory margin is just large enough to avoid triggering an automatic recall of all precincts and all votes. Then there is Gertrude Walker, the [...]
