SANTORUM SURGES AHEAD – Rasmussen, perhaps the most respected polling company in the nation, shows social conservative Senator Rick Santorum at 21% nationally. What is astonishing about the poll is that Mitt Romney’s support is stuck at 29% after six straight years of campaigning for the presidency at a cost of tens of millions of dollars. Romney received 25% of the vote in the Iowa caucus this time around, and his total vote count was actually less than in 2008. GOP voters are sending a message to the establishment, “We don’t want Romney.” Still the inside-the-Beltway establishment is positive that they need a moderate to win in November, showing exactly how detached they are from the base.
RON PAUL DEFENDS HAMAS – Speaking of the Gaza Strip on a state owned Iranian TV network, presidential candidate Ron Paul said, “To me, I look at it like it’s a concentration camp, and people are making bombs, like, they’re the aggressors?” The astonishing video is available on Yourtube. Columnist Don Feder wrote an article on Ron Paul’s insane world views that this interview on Iranian TV reinforces.
HIS HIGHNESS BARACK – During the last year of the Bush Administration, Senator Harry Reid called “pro-forma” sessions of the Senate to block any recess appointees he could, and this left hundreds of federal offices and judgeships vacate in hopes a Democrat would be elected. President Bush honored the Constitution which does not allow recess appointments when the Senate is in session. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is now holding the same “pro-forma” sessions of the Senate but President Barack Obama is ignoring the Constitution and has issued recess appointments of individuals to the National Labor Relations Board who are radically pro-union. This is vote buying at its worst.

ISLAMIC WAR CAMPS IN AMERICA – A radical jihadist group responsible for nearly 50 attacks on American soil is operating 35 terrorist training camps across the nation, but the U.S. government refuses to include the organization on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorists. Jamaat ul-Fuqra, known in the U.S. as “Muslims of America,” has purchased or leased hundreds of acres of property – from New York to California – in which the leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, boasts of conducting “the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare.” Read more

CRY FOR NIGERIA – Earlier today I began to write about the six killed at a Thursday church service. Pastor Johnson Jauro’s wife and five others were killed when Muslim gunmen fired into the Deeper Life Church in Gombe during a prayer service. But the story has since become more tragic. As people gathered to mourn the dead today in Adamawa state, four Muslim gunmen surrounded the building they were in and opened fire with Kalashnikov rifles. At least 20 Christians were killed and and another 15 seriously wounded. The story will probably be reported as “ethnic violence” by liberal outlets such as the Washington Post although the attacks were the work of the Boko Haram . In America the liberal media defends radical Islam and its imposition of Sharia law worldwide. Read more
