    Mitt Romney will work better behind the scenes in helping Republicans capture the White House next year, says former Rep. Allen West, president and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis. "Even though the polls showed him at the top, perhaps he was not getting the major type of response from [donors] and some of his former campaign staff who seem to have gone over to other individuals," West, a Florida Republican, said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

  10. Islamapologists' Take Note, 'One-Way Tolerance Leads to Cultural Suicide'Read the original story w/Photo

    Monday Jan 19 | Cybercast News Service

    There's a lot of talk about freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of the press right now in light of what happened in Paris at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, but what will our response be in the West? Shall we be so intimidated that we will cower away in fear as that which is intolerant forces us into their coerced definition of tolerance? You know what happens then: when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide. We have the President of Turkey, Recip Erdogan basically saying, "you got what you deserved" - and our President, Barack Obama, refers to Erdogan as his friend.

    Wednesday Jan 14 | Crooks and Liars

    Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans have launched a two prong attack against Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson in an effort to remove her authority and to remove her from the bench altogether. In the latter prong, which the Republicans started at the end of last year, they plan on setting a mandatory retirement age which would force Abrahamson to retire almost immediately: State Rep. Dean Knudson, R-Hudson, said he plans to introduce a bill in the upcoming legislative session setting the mandatory retirement age at 75. If passed by the Republican-run Legislature next year, all judges - except reserve or temporary judges - who are over 75 years old would have to retire immediately or within a matter of months.
