Aid to the Muslim Brotherhood

The sign of the degeneracy of the current administration is its boldness in supporting neo-conservative ideologies. Bill Kristol once stated that he believed Obama did more for U.S. Foreign Policy than Bush, and that is saying something. The latest $450 Million dollars given (as part of the $1 Billion promised) is part of the aid promised by Obama to help in the new “democracy” of Egypt under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Drones and Illegality

Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar asserts that U.S. drones for the purpose of killing terrorists is legitimate, though she observes that “As the drones fly over the territory of Pakistan, it becomes an American war and the whole logic of this being our fight, in our own interest, is immediately put aside and again it is a war imposed on us.” She goes on to argue that the current strategy is illegal. The reason for so much anti-Americanism in Pakistan, she says, can be defined in one word: drones. But is it possible to pursue terrorists without casualties? U.S. history in previous years reveal this to be an impossible strategy.

Rand Paul on Life

“We have a great many problems in this country to solve…but I believe there will come a time when we are all judged on whether or not we took a stand in defense of all life from the moment of conception until our last natural breath.” -Rand Paul, Kentucky Senator

Romney’s 47% Strategy

Differences aside, Mitt Romney should run on the message of the Mother Jones series. Robert Laurie observes:

Instead of shrinking from it, Romney needs to take the battle over entitlement straight to the enemy, and ram it down their throats like an unpopular health care bill.

If he embraces the Mother Jones videos – if he is willing to embrace and articulate his conservative side – he’ll take the day on November 6th.  Democrats know this, and their reaction simply proves they’re terrified that he might just do it.

“Israel is quite prepared to take care of itself,” says Joseph Farah

The Attacks Were Planned, says a Reporter

For Politicians to Remember

Nothing is more offensive to God than deceit in commerce. –Matthew Henry

Steve Macias and Unprincipled Pragmatism

Macias argues consistently and faithfully for a more robust view of the Christians’s mission in this world. This is a well-worth article.

Virgil Goode on MSNBC

Virgil Goode is a good ol’ southern boy from Virginia. He is a former congressman who has been re-elected a few times. He is now the Constitution Party candidate for president, and he promises to give Romney quite a challenge in Virginia which appears to be a crucial battleground state.

Are Conservative Commentators Turning Against Romney?

A HuffPo piece seems to think so. One of the leading commentators of the conservative movement, George Will spared no words when he said of Romney:

“Mitt Romney does not have the feeling, the visceral, philosophically sound feeling for what’s wrong with the progressive movement in this country,” Will said. “He’s a good man, a good fellow. He’d be a much better president than the one we’ve got. But he doesn’t — what I’ve said before about him is conservatism is a second language for him. And he is still learning it. And it’s hard to learn this thing in the midst of a high-stakes presidential campaign.”
