    As many conservatives fret over Pope Francis' views on climate change and income inequality ahead of his Thursday speech before Congress, Fox News host Shepard Smith chided those individuals who have criticized the pope for talking about "political" issues. During Fox News coverage of Pope Francis' arrival at the White House on Wednesday morning, host Bill Hemmer mentioned that the pontiff may discuss issues that both Democrats and Republicans may disagree with during his address on Thursday. "Oftentimes the pope is called to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. And you wonder who might be comfortable in Washington, D.C.,...
  • Secret Service "Visits" Outspoken Critic of Obama - Because of Twitter?

    After you read this- you will wonder what country we are in. Tom Francois is an outspoken critic of Barack Hussein Obama- and has a robust Twitter presence. He also likes to dabble with his "paint" program to create funny cartoons. He has never threatened the President in any way, manner or form. On April 11, 2013, he heard relentless pounding on his door shouts of "Police!" The officers introduced themselves as members of The Secret Service and asked if they could "take a look around." Since Tom had nothing to hide (and he didn't want any return visits) -...

    WASHINGTON – What's all the fuss about? After all the noise over Democrats' push for a government insurance plan to compete with private carriers, coverage numbers are finally in: Two percent. That's the estimated share of Americans younger than 65 who'd sign up for the public option plan under the health care bill that Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is steering toward House approval. The underwhelming statistic is raising questions about whether the government plan will be the iron-fisted competitor that private insurers warn will shut them down or a niche operator that becomes a haven for patients with health insurance...

    Sonia Sotomayor has to be the wisest Latina in the room at the Senate Supreme Court Judicial Confirmation Hearings because the redaction of her original statement was so patently false that only stupid white men and women would believe her new explanation. Speaking of stupid white men and women see for yourself (see 1:12min video) According to Sotomayor now, what she really meant was only intended to inspire young Latinas before you imbeciles misunderstood her words "I would hope that a wise Latina woman, with the richness of her experiences, would more often than not reach a better conclusion than...

    In the face of Iran's race to obtain nuclear power, Israel signed a contract with Germany last month to buy two Dolphin-class submarines that will, according to foreign reports, provide superior second-strike nuclear capabilities... The submarines will be assembled in Germany and provided with a propulsion system allowing them to remain underwater for far longer than the submarines currently in the Israel Navy's fleet... The navy is considering installing a Fixed Underwater Sonar System (FUSS) off the coast to detect foreign submarines. In 1993, Iran bought two Russian Kilo-class submarines and eight mini-submarines from North Korea, although officials said this...
