Wisconsin Recall Fail & Looking Forward

by Jenifer Earlier this past week there was a recall election for governor in Wisconsin. But apparently no one knew about it; at least the Wisconsin Democrats didn’t get the memo. Otherwise, why did over a million people sign a petition to make the recall election a reality, yet fail to show at the polls? … Continue reading

The Absolute Latest: Santorum wins Alabama and Mississippi.

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum continues to extend the Republican primary season…much to the dismay of the presumed frontrunner, Mitt Romney. Following a decent performance on Super Tuesday, Romney failed to prove that he has any conservative credentials with voters in the Deep South last night.

All rejoice, Anwar al- Awlaki Is Dead!

by Jenifer Anwar Al-Awlaki was an American citizen. There is no declared war with Yemen and he was not a combatant but a preacher. He deserved a trial, like any American citizen. If they wanted him, they should have gone in, got him, brought him back and let him face a jury of his peers. … Continue reading

Middle East Roundup…& Have You Heard What’s Happening on Wall Street?

by Jenifer Gaddafi is still hanging on somewhere. He seems to have found his new niche as deposed leader with a cause.

Throwback Thursdays: Interracial Couple denied Marriage License

*Originally written on October, 17th, 2009. by Nicole In the year 2009, you wouldn’t think that people would still be denied the right to get married simply because they are of different ethnic origins—not in America–not in 2009.

Values, emotion and Islam.

Although the clip above is about 10 seconds, it could possibly bring up a night’s worth of conversation. This was during the 2008 presidential campaign. At the time, some news organizations were broadcasting/printing misleading stories about then-Senator Obama’s religion.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: An open letter.

We live in a nation that values our Constitution–particularly the first ten amendments—a.k.a. the Bill of Rights. Our first amendment protects the right to express our opinion without fear of legal action being taken against us.
