    On CNN contributor Roland Martin’s podcast posted to his website Monday, Jason Whitlock, the columnist who inspired Bob Costas’ commentary on gun control during halftime of Sunday’s Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game on NBC, revealed his peculiar take on the National Rifle Association (NRA).Whitlock spoke out against the NFL’s handling of the aftermath of Jovan Belcher’s suicide and gun issues in his Sunday FoxSports.com column. During Martin’s podcast, he likened the NRA to the Ku Klux Klan and tied the group to the dangerous street culture that unfortunately dominates “so many black youths.”“Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out...

    In reviling testimonyon the Hill today, Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson discovered the military may be covering up that the redeployment of military bases to Guam may cause the island to "Tip" over. Rep. Johnson asked Generals if an Island 7 miles by 12 miles had enough space to support military operations. The military, reluctant to answer under the Johnson's relentless pressure, said "Congressman I don't know but can get back to you". Rep Johnson's asked "How big is Guam if it were 24 miles by 7 miles". The General trying to obfuscate admitted "Congressman, I don't know, but I would...

    Every day we hear more news about the sad state of the U.S. economy. I know things are really bad, having read about the millions of people looking for work and personally knowing some who have been laid off over the past year. Last week I learned just how terrible it truly is in human terms, though, when Ted Turner revealed he is down to his last billion, or two, dropping to number 196 on the most recent Forbes 400 list. There are thousands of stories across the country about Americans suffering the effects of layoffs, extended unemployment, and foreclosure....

    According to Congressional travel records, House and Senate members spent 6,910 days on “official travel” overseas in the first three-quarters of 2009, spending an estimated $9.4 million. They hit the obvious-Iraq and Afghanistan-but also those bastions of American security concern Scotland, Morocco, Denmark and Sweden. But when Sen. Jim DeMint tried to visit Honduras, Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry forbade an official trip, cutting off funds for the flight-an unprecedented step for a committee chairman. Sen. Kerry then tried to exchange permission for the trip for the release of Sen. DeMint’s hold on two administration appointees — a bribe...

    A Friday hearing revealed that an Obama partisan has manipulated an independent investigator’s subpoena list of a controversial inquiry against GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The investigation is intended to determine whether Palin abused her office by firing Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. Palin says she fired him over budget issues. Her foes believe the firing was due to Monegan’s unwillingness to fire Palin’s former brother-in-law State Trooper Mike Wooten, a man who has admitted to “tasering” his stepson, illegally shooting a moose and has been accused of threatening his former father-in-law with violence and drinking in his police car....

    (AP) London, March 2, 1867: Karl Marx, a rising star among centrist economists, announced today the publication of the first volume of his work, 'Das Kapital'.OK, perhaps I exaggerate a tad. But is there any man of the left that the MSM is unwilling to cast as a "centrist" or moderate, particularly when he is seen as a potential Democratic presidential nominee? The Associated Press offers a perfect illustration of the phenomenon this evening. This article reports Barack Obama's indication on today's Meet The Press that, earlier protestations to the contrary notwithstanding, he is indeed contemplating a run for the...

Sure, the chimp would soil the Oval Office. We all know the primate house isn’t a pretty place. But would the chimp have been smart enough to find and soil the US Constitution? Would the chimp have surrounded itself with larger, aggressive primates such as Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld? No crony chimps Would it have had the intelligence to poop its mark on...

    Those who disagree with the Bush administration's policies in Iraq face the same scornful charges that they are unpatriotic as Sen. John Kerry did 35 years ago when he spoke out against the Vietnam War, the Massachusetts Democrat said Saturday. "I have come here today to reaffirm that it was right to dissent in 1971 from a war that was wrong. And to affirm that it is both a right and an obligation for Americans today to disagree with a President who is wrong, a policy that is wrong, and a war in Iraq that weakens the nation," Kerry said...

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | September 26, 2005 | RICHARD 'DOPEY' ROEPER SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST
    Tens of thousands marched on Washington last Saturday to protest George Bush's war in Iraq. The crowd included college-age activists, veterans of Vietnam War protests, entire families united against the war, and parents whose children have been killed in Iraq. It was the largest protest yet against this war. Larger ones will almost surely follow. If there had been a soundtrack to Saturday's march past the White House, you couldn't pick a much more appropriate song to kick it off than Jefferson Airplane's "Volunteers." Released in 1969 by one of the most politically acute bands of the era, "Volunteers" was...

    When Rudyard Kipling said it was a great virtue "if you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you," he was not thinking of Sen. Maria Cantwell, a Democrat from Washington. This week, as gasoline prices remained above $3 a gallon, she proposed giving the president the power to tell retailers what they can charge at the pump. A lot of people grew anxious seeing long lines forming last week, as motorists rushed to fill their tanks in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. But Cantwell apparently enjoyed the sight well enough that...

    Note that a murderer or rapist is never called a former murderer or former rapist. That’s because once you have committed such a heinous crime, you are properly branded for life with the moniker. Some odors, once attached to one’s epidermis, just can’t be lost. Such is the case with the Democrats’ own Ku Klux Klansman, Sen. Robert Byrd. Once a Klansman, always a Klansman. Byrd’s own words should have seen to his political demise decades ago, but because he is a Democrat rather than a Republican, liberals look the other way and give this card-carrying racist a pass regardless...

    BAGHDAD, April 23 -- Violence is escalating sharply in Iraq after a period of relative calm that followed the January elections. Bombings, ambushes and kidnappings targeting Iraqis and foreigners, both troops and civilians, have surged this month while the new Iraqi government is caught up in power struggles over cabinet positions. {snip} "Definitely, violence is getting worse," said a U.S. official in Baghdad, who spoke on condition of anonymity. "My strong sense is that a lot of the political momentum that was generated out of the successful election, which was sort of like a punch in the gut to the...

    A gasp of disbelief, a sad shake of the head and a feeling of general disgust. That's how San Marcos residents reacted Saturday morning at the sight of graffiti spray-painted on the still under construction Hays County Veterans Memorial. Sometime overnight, someone used yellow spray paint to write "Kill Bush" on a section of the memorial where names of local veterans are displayed on a sloping wall. The same slogan, along with others, was repeated on the back of the memorial. "It's very disgusting," said Robert Guerrero, who served in Germany during the Vietnam era. "I have a lot of...

I dragged myself out of bed, threw my clothes on, and headed to morning swim workout expecting to hear a familiar "you're late" from Coach Jim Wilson. Instead, as we lifted weights that morning, our coach announced that General Wesley Clark would be joining us in the pool in a little less than an hour.

Asked about Kennedy's racially charged outburst, Daschle insisted to "Fox News Sunday" he was talking about politics and not ethnicity. "I think that there are a lot of nominees who are on the far, far right of the political and philosophical spectrum," he told FNS host Tony Snow. "I think that's what Sen. Kennedy was referring to." But when Snow pressed, "Then why did...
