    Dangerously cold temperatures will be in place tonight to ring in the new year for many locations located east of the Rocky Mountains. Locations across the Northeast and as far south as Kansas into Ohio will be below zero at midnight with wind chills of -20 to -40 for many of these locations. Therefore, locations from northeastern Montana into portions of the Midwest and Northeast are under a Wind Chill Warning with Wind Chill Advisories in place as far south as the central Gulf Coast through Monday morning. Monday's highs will stay below freezing for much of Texas to the...

    A group of BLM protesters have formed a circle in the middle of the very busy "Commercial Street" in the heart of the "Old Port District". Police have blocked off all traffic on the street, which is normally jammed to capacity with cars and pedestrians on a typical Summer weekend night. The protesters have declared they don't care if they are arrested.

    Bachmann took aim at the “ruling class in Washington,” saying that the U.S. will “not have any sovereignty” over its borders. Bachmann also opined that with the executive action, the president put in place an “insurance policy,” allowing Democrats to win “every presidential contest from here on out....

    It was just about dark, I was at the kitchen table when the dog barked, headlights were coming up my driveway. I went outside to see who it was...he was a stranger. He announced that he was from the Census Bureau and wondered if this was a good time for a 40 minute interview. He proceeded to tell me all about the Census, how it established demographical statistics and how I was required by law to answer the questions. I told him two people live here and we are American Citizens, and that I would tell him nothing more. He...

    These things were all mentioned before the election, we knew that ACORN was simply renamed and probably multiplied in every city in America. There were obvious big money giveaways to the various unions and democrat activists, including the UAW and SEIU, who take taxpayer money and help any democrat campaign they can. Who is investigating this wholesale voter fraud funded by the stimulus?...Holder? And the experts and candidates don't understand what happened!!! Gimme a break
  • Glen Beck Vigorously Insisting Mormans are Christians.

    02/22/2012 3:28:43 PM PST · by ROCKLOBSTER · 323 replies · 1+ views
    This morning Glen Beck was discussing "what is a Christian" and used the full title of the LDS Church as proof they are Christians, not some whacked out cult based on a modern day "prophet". He also spoke of how Soros thinks of himself as a god. As a disclaimer, every member of that church that I've ever met was a clean living, humble and generous person...but that doesn't make them Christians.

    Friend -- One year from today, Democrats from across the country will meet in Charlotte, North Carolina to renominate Barack Obama for President. The 2012 Convention will be different from any that came before it. We believe this should be an event not just for the thousands who will attend but for the millions whose values it will reflect -- making supporters across the country feel closely tied to what is happening in Charlotte and giving you unprecedented access to the nominating process. That's why we're asking you to sign up to get updates from the 2012 Democratic Convention. If...

    Friend -- I've been in Washington for almost 40 years. I've seen a lot of Congresses come and go. But I can't remember a group of lawmakers who accomplished more than the folks who just wrapped up their work. With their help, we repealed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and ratified the START arms control treaty. We passed a new law to rein in the abuses on Wall Street and protect consumers. We reformed the health care system and passed the Recovery Act to get our economy growing again. But do you know why all that happened? Because people like you...
  • Rush urges listeners to call democrat members of Congress on passage of "healthcare" bill

    03/16/2010 10:05:08 AM PDT · by ROCKLOBSTER · 20 replies · 1,325+ views
    In an uncharacteristic move, Rush Limbaugh has encouraged his vast audience to phone the Congressional switchboard and has given out toll-free phone numbers on the air. He stated he has only done this once before as a demonstration of how many calls it would generate and that he does not do it as a matter of course. Calls to undecided Democrat Congressmen are to urge them to vote against the healthcare bill currently under consideration in the House.

    Obama says Iran's energy concerns legitimate By NANCY ZUCKERBROD The Associated Press Tuesday, June 2, 2009 3:40 PM LONDON -- President Barack Obama reiterated that Iran may have some right to nuclear energy _ provided it takes steps to prove its aspirations are peaceful. In a BBC interview broadcast Tuesday, Obama also restated plans to pursue direct diplomacy with Tehran to encourage it to set aside any ambitions for nuclear weapons it might harbor. Iran has insisted its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity. But the U.S. and other Western governments accuse Tehran of seeking atomic weapons. "Without going...

    AUGUSTA — Sen. Arthur Mayo of Bath, newly re-elected to a second term, said Tuesday he had switched his party registration from Republican to Democrat. "It's a change in affiliation. It's not a change in philosophy," said Mayo, whose move across the political aisle boosts the Democratic Senate majority in the new Legislature to 19-16. Characterizing himself as a long-standing "liberal Republican," Mayo said "it has been increasingly difficult in the Senate Republican caucus" for someone with his political philosophy. Mayo said he believed the Republican Senate bloc has "moved to the right" and that at least some of his...

    Progressive Democrats of America ^ | May 22, 2004 | Unknown leftist
    Progressives recognize that it's time for America to resume its glorious journey. Time to look out upon the world for friends, not enemies. Time to tell the world that we wish to be their partner in peace, not their leader in war. Time to recognize that winning hearts and minds comes from dialogue and mutual respect--not from a gun. Time for the greatest military power in the history of this world to act with humility and restraint--not to arrogantly and illegally impose its system and values upon others. Time to recognize that war must truly be the last desperate measure...

    Saturday, May 17th 4:00-8:00PM Capitol Park, Augusta, Maine On Armed Forces Day, May 17th, please join us in supporting all of our deployed military members. We are teaming up with many local organizations who are trying to show our men and women overseas that they have not been forgotten. With all of the attention being focused on anti-war rallies, we thought it was just as important to focus some of our attention on supporting those who are away from their friends and family, fighting for the freedom of others. The rally will take place in Capitol Park from 4:00...
