    .Gov. Brian Schweitzer, talking Friday to a national news website, said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney might shy from talking about his family’s Mexican roots because they came from a “polygamy commune” in Mexico. Schweitzer made the remark in an interview with The Daily Beast, a news and opinion website, after being asked whether Montana might be a swing state during this year’s 2012 election. According to The Daily Beast, Schweitzer said Montana likely would vote for Romney, but that Romney, a Mormon, might have trouble nationally because his father, George Romney, was “born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.”...

    Connecticut: A famously cool President Barack Obama lost his temper in Connecticut on Saturday after hecklers interrupted his speech at a rally. According to the Daily Mail, astonished attendees saw a visibly angry and frustrated Obama jabbing his fingers at protesters at the Bridgeport rally. “Let me just say this. You've been appearing at every rally we've been doing. We're funding global Aids. And the other (Republican) side is not. So, I don''t know why you think this is a useful strategy to take,” he said while jabbing his finger angrily in the direction of the hecklers.

    Charlie Gibson, of ABC news, threw all kinds of foreign policy questions at Gov. Palin, who is running for Vice President. Well, compare that to how he questioned Sen. Obama, who is running for President. Watch this, and see who even the media realises can handle hard situations and questions! Gibson never asks Obama one hard question. No foreign policy questions. He asks Obama such things as when he "flipped" from being a drug using kid, to serious student. And when he "knew" that Michelle was "it".

    Obama in Billings Wednesday Presidential candidate Barack Obama will be in Billings next Wednesday on his way to the Democratic National Convention in Denver, state Democratic Party officials confirmed Thursday. The trip will mark Obama’s fifth trip to the state during the campaign this year, an unprecedented amount of attention for a state with less than a million people and only three electoral votes. Presumptive Republican nominee John McCain has not yet visited the state. Art Noonan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party, said no details of Obama’s Montana visit are yet available. He said he didn’t know if...

    Area church target of vandals By CAROLYNN BRIGHT - IR Staff Writer - 11/03/04 Rev. B.G. Stumberg doesn't think that gay and lesbian marriages should be recognized by law and he emphasizes that, in a free country, it's his right to hold that belief. However, since he shared his opinions on CI-96 with the media recently, he's learned that not everyone agrees with that philosophy — and his parish at the Canyon Ferry Road Baptist Church paid the price for that. On Tuesday, Stumberg arrived at the church to find that vandals had spray-painted several phrases on the walls of...

    HELP! I am sending out a truth alert to everyone on my email list, to counter Kerry's embracing of his Vietnam Veteran status. I need photos of him from the protest days, with his fist raised in the air, as well as a modern one, with his fist raised in the air. He spent far more time protesting the military, than he did in serving it, and I think that fact is very important to point out. Thanks

    "A teenage boy who fed a neighbor’s pet cat to an alligator Thursday told investigators he just wanted to see what the gator would do, Cape Coral police reported. Andrew J. Castor, 14, of 1432 S.E. 24th Ave. was arrested on charges of felony cruelty to animals, feeding a gator and the theft of the cat. The state attorney's office hadn't decided what charges to pursue Friday or whether Castor would be tried as an adult, said spokeswoman Chere Avery. According to police, Castor stole the 12-year-old cat from a chair in the neighbor’s front yard Thursday afternoon, slipped it...

    The editorial in the current edition of “Al-Fateh” (The Conqueror), the Hamas monthly children’s magazine, again uses malicious messages against “the Americans, the Jews and the English.” The average age of this magazine’s reader base -- judging from the pictures, illustrations and short stories it contains – is estimated at about 10 years. It continuously publishes editorials which although not long, are embellished with hateful words against “the enemies of the Arab and Muslim nation.” Although the war in Iraq provided harsh pictures, including harm against civilians and residences, the editorial writer goes one step further, stating that “the enemies...

    Children held at Guantanamo Bay Oliver Burkeman in Washington Thursday April 24, 2003 The Guardian Children younger than 16 are being held as "enemy combatants" in the American detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, the US military admitted yesterday, a practice human rights groups condemned as repugnant and illegal. Three boys aged between 13 and 15 are among about 660 inmates at the controversial camp, a US military official told the Guardian, on condition of anonymity. The official would not disclose their nationalities but said they had been brought from Afghanistan this year on suspicion of terrorism. As soon as their...

    "I have to wonder: Why did it take a trip halfway around the world to teach people this truth? Anyone in America or Europe can pick up a newspaper and read stories of government-sponsored torture and murder in Iraq. But as Pepper points out, the fashionable view is that, while Saddam isn't the nicest guy, the American and British governments are the true villains. That is the mindset at work in Michael Moore and other protesters, like those carrying signs comparing Bush to Hitler—and even, in a few cases, those who assault people in the name of "peace." As Daniel...

    Just watching the Senate, when the Senior Senator from New York stood to participate in the filabuster of Judicial nominee, Miguel Estrada. Schumer produced a large blue board, which contained a quote. The quote was attributed to the "Legal Times, April 2002"; yet the quote was presented in a way which made it seem as if the White House had spoken the words. I would like to know if any of the brilliant political minds here would be able to tell me where the quote came from. Who actually said these words: "President George W. Bush's Judicial nominees received some...

Most of the world is saying 'no' to it" ....and out of the other side, they say that Bush knew of Al-Qaeda's plans and did nothing to stop it! What do they actually believe? What do they think Bush should have done to stop the 9-11 tragedy? They complain of everything he does to prevent another, worse scenario! Which do they want him to do---save American lives, or allow them to be incinerated by a nuclear...

    At 8:30 am EDT, I watched a long political ad, produced by the Today show, for Mr. McBride, the democratic candidate for Governor in Florida! Every word favorable, and wonderful. He is the greatest, smartest guy! Not even a hint at anything other than wonderful! But, they were sure to include as many veiled insults against Jeb Bush as possible! The show had an interview with Bush on last week. Of course that piece tried to paint Bush in as much as an unfavorable light as it could, without being obviously biased. It focused on how hard it is for...

''He's not on our team,''Jackson told a packed house at Greater Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, which celebrated its 110th anniversary Sunday. ''If he wins, Trent Lott wins. We're not on that team. If he wins, we lose. If he wins, poor folks lose.''/

    The fact is that Saddam Hussein was our boy. The CIA helped him to power, as they did the Shah of Iran and Noriega and Marcos and the Taliban and countless other brutal tyrants. The fact is that George Bush Sr continued to supply nerve gas and technology to Saddam even after he used it on Iran and then the Kurds in Iraq. While the Amnesty International report listing countless Saddam atrocities, including gassing and torturing Kurds, was sitting on his desk, Bush Sr pushed through a $2bn "agricultural" loan and Thatcher gave hundreds of millions in export credit to...

    Miss Harold said abstinence education is an important component of youth-violence prevention because violence is directly related to sexual permissiveness and promiscuity. "I think that if a young person is engaged in a promiscuous lifestyle, it makes them vulnerable to other risk factors, so I definitely see a tie-in there," she said. "Many victims of sexual harassment believe what is said about them, and they become very promiscuous. When they're called a whore, when they're called a slut, they think, 'That's what I want to be,' and so they engage in a pattern of self-destruction that can be very detrimental...
