    Penny Starr, writing for CNS News, notes how, "The U.S. State Department’s new envoy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons (LGBTI) spoke on Tuesday about the U.S. mission to put in place constitutional protections for homosexuals in countries around the globe and how that those protections make 'a more durable, healthier nation.' Randy Berry’s remarks are particularly interesting when contrasted with the Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35, January 10, 1963 that list 'Current Communist Goals.' The list of 42 goals, entered into the record by Rep. A. S. Herlong Jr., a Democrat from Florida, is credited to the book...

    (First Published in Gay Community News, Feb. 15-21, 1987 and also put into the Congressional Record. Author - Michael Swift) We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions...
  • Issa’s secret gunwalking wiretaps revealed in Congressional Record

    Rep. Darrell Issa managed to push the details of a secret wiretap application from the botched “Fast and Furious” gunwalking operation into the public domain this week when he entered summaries into the Congressional Record, apparently using Congress‘ protection under the speech and debate clause to get around legal boundaries. The summary of a March 2010 wiretap application shows that federal agents repeatedly lost track of guns they knew were being trafficked back to cartels in Mexico — a violation of Justice Department policy that should have raised red flags with top department officials who signed off on the wiretaps,...
  • How Conservative is Newt's Actual Voting Record?

    12/02/2011 1:50:20 PM PST · by libertarian neocon · 167 replies
    The folks at Club for Growth has white papers on all the GOP candidates summarizing their public records and does a pretty objective job. Looking at Newt's I really was struck by how conservative Newt's actual voting record was (which of course was mischaracterized by Jennifer Rubin, who I think must have been offered a post in a Romney administration. How else do you explain her going full spittle in support of Romney and anti-Newt?)., with most of the worrisome aspects of his record coming from speeches AFTER he left public office. This is pretty much the exact opposite of...
  • Record cleans up Congress for history

    THE WASHINGTON TIMES Only in this town of lawyers along the Potomac can politicians utter statements that were, according to official history, never spoken. When writing the Constitution, the Founding Fathers mandated the recording of Congress' proceedings, but its form was left to the lawmakers who established the Congressional Record and the rules that allow them to clean up regretful remarks, miscues and misstatements before they are published. One day last week, Sen. Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, spoke about one of President Bush's filibustered nominees and said the nominee probably would think something was "God awful."
  • Transcript of SENATOR KERRY'S 1997 Speech on Senate Floor: "WE MUST BE FIRM WITH SADDAM HUSSEIN"

    . WE MUST BE FIRM WITH SADDAM HUSSEIN (Senate - November 09, 1997) Mr. KERRY. Mr. President, I will speak tomorrow on the subject of fast track. I wish to talk this evening about another subject that has not received as much conversation on the floor of the Senate as it merits--because, while we have been focused on fast track and on a lot of loose ends which must be tied up before this first session of the 105th Congress can be brought to a close, a very troubling situation has developed in the Middle East that has ominous implications,...
  • Kerry Hasn’t Read a History Book

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 25 September 2004 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    John Kerry gave a fire-breathing speech at Temple University in Philadelphia on Friday. In it he announced what will be his themes for the balance of the campaign, subject of course to 180-degree changes at any time. There was one problem with the speech. It was largely “fact-free,” as Dave Barry is wont to say. Here are the claims, and the relevant facts to each claim: “The invasion of Iraq was a profound diversion from the battle against our greatest enemy -- Al Qaeda -- ...” Kerry may not have noticed, but your average college student ought to know that...

    [ED. NOTE: Following are excerpts from the 1998 Congressional Record. They are EXTREMELY revealing as to who was wringing their hands over the danger posed to U.S. security by Iraq and its WMD just five years ago, and who was calling Iraq’s actions that year a "crisis." These debates led to passage of the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, WHICH MADE REGIME CHANGE IN IRAQ UNITED STATES POLICY. Please bear with this long post. It’s crucial ammunition for anyone who wants clear, unambiguous evidence of Democrat hypocrisy on Iraq and WMD.] [BEGIN EXCERPTS: Click link above to search the full...
