Joe Sestak Stands By His Convictions: A man is not a man until he has a house of his own.

Conviction in politics is rare. The newly-elected Sestak from Pennsylvania, who beat Senator Arlen Spector, is certainly a future star in the Democratic Party. Despite the job offer by the White House to persuade him to quit the race against Spector, he did not hesitate to believe in himself and defeat the “Circumstantial Democrat” ex-GOP Senator. These […]

White House State Dinner: The woman is cold water that kills you; deep water that you drown in.

The White House and the Secret Service are both investigating how Michaele and Tareq Salahi managed to pass at least two checkpoints of supposedly impenetrable White House security to crash Tuesday’s state dinner in honor of the Indian Prime Minister. Honestly, the couple should not be punished as felons. Instead the Secret Service should be fingered. What an embarrassment for […]

Pastor Steven Anderson‘s death prayers against President Obama have media attention. For a president who has an unprecedented high rate of death threats, this not a big surprise. The first president of color surely expects to face death threats. Four of his white predecessors were killed in office, and many others escaped assassination attempts. This […]
