Democrat Landrieu and Republican Brownback Intend To Stop Human-Animal Hybrids

Pro-family Americans are really going to miss Kansas Republican Senator Sam Brownback when he leaves the United States Senate next year after serving for two terms.  He has been a champion for the unborn and a champion for all family values.  Senator Brownback will be campaigning to become the next governor of Kansas.

His dedicated service to the pro-family movement is exemplified by another piece of major legislation which he is co-authoring with Louisiana Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu.  On July 9th, Senators Brownback and Landrieu introduced the "Human-Animal Hybrid Prohibition Act," S-1435.  The fact that research in America has sunk to the level where such legislation has to even be introduced in the United States Congress is an indication as to the cultural decay in America.

The Cure for What Ails Healthcare Reform: Competition and Free Markets

The growing public skepticism toward President Obama's federal takeover of American health care is a welcome reminder of the wisdom and responsibility of the American people. In a certain sense, the collapsing support for the Democrats' scheme was inevitable. After all, the initial "support" was always based on the president's gauzy aspirations rather than on the ghastly details of 800-page legislation written by a Star Wars cantina of corporate lobbyists and liberal committee chairmen.

Is the Obama and Hillary split widening?

Last week in "The Washington Times," it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is castigating the White House for delaying an appointment of an administrator to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID.) She said the White House vetting process is not working and that "The clearance and vetting process is a nightmare, and it takes far longer than any of us would want to see. It is frustrating beyond words." Mrs. Clinton added, "I mean, it is ridiculous. Some very good people just didn't want to be vetted." And on July 16th, she said the White House process has become "cumbersom and lengthy."

Senate Republicans should put Democrats on the spot with Sotomayor

With a newly minted sixty-vote Democrat majority in the US Senate, the approval of the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court is all but assured.
But what isn't assured is that it won't cost the Democrats something before all the dust settles.  And that's up to the Republicans.

Do they have what it takes to make her positions on hot-button issues so toxic that the Democrats from "purple" or "red" states who support her will find themselves in political hot water back home?
Her record represents just such an opportunity.

Before becoming a judge, Sotomayor was a leader of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF), even serving as the Chairman of its Litigation Committee.  And there we get a glimpse of some of the issues she was willing to lend her support to.

Democrats' health care bill will greatly increase abortions

During President Barack Obama's presidential campaign, he campaigned under the premise that abortion would be safe, legal and rare or words to that effect.  Unfortunately, the Democrats' proposed health care legislation will only increase abortions in America which are already being performed at the stunning rate of 1.2 million abortions each year.   Indeed, according to the Guttmacher Institute, there were 1.37 million abortions in America in 1996.  

In the Democrats' proposed health care legislation, abortion on demand would be mandated by the federal government in medical insurance policies.  There would be massive federal subsidies for abortions in America, even though a majority of Americans do not want their tax dollars to pay for abortions.  New abortion clinics would be mandated in the Democrats' bill.  Health care workers would be forced to participate in abortions or lose their jobs.    

Senator Graham and Secretary Clinton are right: Obama too timid on Iran

Numerous reports in the past week or so documented a split between Secretary State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama with regards to how the administration should react to the Iranian street protestors following the apparent stolen presidential election in Iran.   

Secretary Clinton advocated a tougher approach and it took a long time before Obama adopted Clinton's position, although he refused to give her a heads-up when he finally adopted her position.  She believed after the killing of the young woman, Neda Agha-Soltan  --  seen on a video which went around the world  --  that it was time for the president to get tougher against Iran.  

Parents' Rights Constitutional Amendment vs. U.N.'s Convention of "Rights" of the Child

Incredibly, the United Nations, instead of trying to broker peace agreements amongst the world's warring nations  --  or dismantling the nuclear weapons programs of rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea  --  is meddling once again in the affairs of the nuclear family and the Obama administration is trying to give them an assist.   

Pro-family forces in America are fighting back.  There is now a bill, authored by Congressman Pete Hoekstra, Republican from Michigan and co-sponsored by the Republican leader of the United States House of Representatives, John Boehner from Ohio, which will establish a Parents' Rights Constitutional Amendment (H. J. Res. 42.)  The entire leadership of the Republicans in the House of Representatives are also co-sponsors.  It now has 100 co-sponsors and gaining more every day as Members of the House find out about this commonsense pro-family legislation.  

Time for the GOP to adopt the "Schumer Doctrine" on judges

It seems that every time we have a contentious judicial nomination process, especially for the Supreme Court, a great fuss is made over not asking certain questions.  More to the point, we're told that nominees should not answer questions that could disclose how they may rule on certain issues in the future.

Hogwash.

The problem with this notion is that the federal judiciary has grown ever more powerful over the years versus our other branches of government.  Further, the Supreme Court is held to be the final arbiter of what the Constitution actually "means" at any given point in time - information that's surely useful to the people that document is meant to govern.

Republicans: Lay off Sotomayor on same-sex groups

Some unnamed Republican politicians are lambasting President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, in the media for her belonging to an all-female social organization called the Belizean Grove.  Undoubtedly, some of these same Republicans defended past Republican nominees for belonging to all-male social organizations such as the Bohemian Club, whose membership is made up of male movers and shakers in America.   

As "The Washington Times" reported yesterday, the New York-based Belizean Grove club "finds itself caught up in Supreme Court confirmation politics, with Republican lawmakers raising questions about the group's most famous member.  Federal appeals court Judge Sonia Sotomayor joined the group a year ago and went on her first trip last year to Peru. Her membership went largely unnoticed until she listed it on a Senate questionnaire in preparation for her July 13 confirmation hearings."

Eliminating religion in the U.S. Capitol Building

A United States Senator from my home state of South Carolina, Jim DeMint, and a Congressman from California, Dan Lungren, are trying to return God to the public square; in this case to the United States Capitol Building.   

Incomprehensively, the bureaucrats running the show at the U.S. Capitol Building seemed to forget that this nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles when they built the new Capitol Visitors Center (CVC).  So today, Senator DeMint, introduced a resolution which tells the Architect of the Capitol to engrave America's national motto, "In God We Trust," and the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag inside the gigantic CVC.
