WES VERNON, RA ANALYST Months before Barack Obama assumed the presidency, many Americans seeking substance in lieu of "change" sloganeering had an uneasy feeling about the man. There were just enough unsettling reports on parts of his background to raise concerns. But at that time, those questions elicited few answers. That is because Mr. Obama had spent millions to hide his background... (more)

ALAN KEYES "My view is that regardless of whether you think prohibiting abortion is good or whether you think prohibiting abortion is bad -- regardless of how you come out on that -- my only point is the Constitution does not say anything about it," Justice Scalia stated. "It leaves it up to democratic choice. Some states prohibited it and some states didn't. What Roe v. Wade said was that no state can prohibit it"... (more)

NEWSMAX Even as Chick-fil-A sets sales records thanks to supporters of traditional marriage flooding into stores to support its Christian values, one conservative politican is having nothing to do with the controversy. And he's the one running for president... (more)

LLOYD MARCUS I jump on every opportunity to respectfully challenge my 84-year-old black dad's loyalty to Obama. Dad has been a Christian pastor over 50 years. He lives in Maryland and I live in Florida. I called Dad to ask if he participated in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. He said, no he had not heard about it. Then, he added, "All I know is Chick-fil-A discriminates against gays."... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH A new poll from the Pew Research Center suggests 65 percent of Democrats now support same-sex marriage, whereas only 50 percent did at the time of the last Democratic presidential nominating convention. I suppose that's to be expected. In 2008, not one Democratic presidential candidate -- not Barack Obama, not Hillary Clinton, not Joe Biden, not John Edwards -- supported same sex-marriage and other twisted unions involving "transgendereds" and other poor souls...

WASHINGTON EXAMINER With Congress embarking this week on a monthlong recess despite its failure to act on several critical issues, Democrats unleashed a pre-election public relations assault, accusing Republicans of ignoring the middle class, abandoning bipartisanship and instead catering to the wealthy and the far-right Tea Party...

WASHINGTON TIMES President Obama goes out of his way to appear to support the troops. But when it comes to voting, he would like to keep them out of the fight. The Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party are suing the critical swing state of Ohio to strike down a law that makes it easier for members of the military to vote...

NEWSMAX A number of prominent Jewish-Americans have begun to jump ship from President Barack Obama's re-election effort, reports The Washington Post. "Who will be next? It's become a bit of a guessing game as to which prominent Jewish supporter/defender of the president's Israel policy will be the next to break publicly with him," pens conservative Post blogger Jennifer Rubin...

DAILY CALLER The White House has left open the possibility of enacting its Internet agenda via executive order after the failed effort to bring the Democrat-supported cybersecurity bill to a full vote in the Senate last week... (more)

THE TENNESSEAN The party of Cordell Hull, Estes Kefauver and Al Gore Sr. and Jr. won't have a standard-bearer -- or at least not one it can stomach -- in Tennessee's next U.S. Senate race. Less than 24 hours after a man espousing conservative and libertarian views surprised the state's political scene by winning the Democratic nomination, the Tennessee Democratic Party disavowed him, saying he's part of an anti-gay hate group...

ONE NEWS NOW With Target's new wedding registry ad featuring a male couple, one proponent of natural marriage says the retailer is apparently promoting homosexual marriage. In recent months, JC Penney's advertising has promoted homosexuality -- both through print ads and the selection of lesbian comedian Ellen DeGeneres as the company's spokesperson... (more)

ABC NEWS Last summer, Laura, a young woman originally from the suburbs of Salt Lake City, became the first among her siblings to get married. This summer, she became a mother. Getting married and having a child can be a heady time for anyone, but unlike most young married mothers, Laura, 19, knows that someday soon she could be in for yet another major life change: her husband could marry another wife...

WASHINGTON TIMES The Tea Party hasn't dominated the headlines in quite some time. Following its ballot-box success in 2010, the loosely organized small-government movement has taken a breather. Results from Tuesday's primary elections in Texas and Georgia leave little doubt that the Tea Party is back and ready for action in November... (more)

WASHINGTON TIMES Reuters reported Wednesday that President Obama "signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government." This latest leak of classified information was attributed to "U.S. sources familiar with the matter"... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH The New York Times has discovered yet another way to cheerlead the "authenticity" of the paper's favorite presidential candidate -- not just in this election, but perhaps in any election. The "newspaper of record" managed to develop a comprehensive story that speculates Barack Obama, who claims, without substantiation, to be the son of a white mother and a Kenyan visiting student, has roots in slavery -- like so many other African-Americans...

REUTERS U.S. weather has been lousy this year, with droughts, heat and killer storms. But a solar superstorm could be far worse. A monster blast of geomagnetic particles from the sun could destroy 300 or more of the 2,100 high-voltage transformers that are the backbone of the U.S. electric grid, according to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS)...

FRED HUTCHISON, RA ANALYST The Conservative movement has many intellectual streams. Some of the names that readily come to mind are Traditionalist, Idealist, Realist, Conservationist, Christian Right, Natural Law, Agrarian, Classicist, Tory, Libertarian, Classical Liberal, and Neocon. Conservatives can win elections only when there is a coalition of all or most of the streams working together... (more)

STANLEY KURTZ President Obama is not a fan of America's suburbs. Indeed, he intends to abolish them. With suburban voters set to be the swing constituency of the 2012 election, the administration's plans for this segment of the electorate deserve scrutiny. Obama is a longtime supporter of "regionalism," the idea that the suburbs should be folded into the cities, merging schools, housing, transportation, and above all taxation... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER Congressmen in both parties want you to pay more taxes on your online purchases, and once again, big business is lobbying for bigger government, which would hurt Mom and Pop. Online sales taxes have been a battlefield for lobbying titans for years, pitting Walmart and the rest of the brick-and-mortar retail lobby against Amazon and other online retailers... (more)

SEN. JIM DEMINT Our nation was born from the idea of "no taxation without representation"--that citizens should not be taxed by governments in which they have no political voice. Yet now lawmakers in Washington want to overturn that bedrock principle in order to extract more revenues from American consumers... (more)

EMILY MILLER Congressional Republicans are running scared from the mere mention of a government shutdown. Capitol Hill has been in a standoff all year as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, has refused to move any spending bills that failed to expend the maximum amount allowed under the law...

ASSOCIATED PRESS Ted Cruz's Senate primary victory in Texas will provide a boost for tea party-backed, no-compromise conservatives in Congress. His all-but-sure win in November will increase the number of tea party-aligned senators to six, and as many as seven more could win election... (more)
