The United Nations came up with yet another reason why they should not be getting American tax dollars. Two United Nations committees are trying to pressure Ireland into legalizing the abomination of abortion, most recently in Ireland. It is outrageous that the American people who have had to spend over a trillion dollars to bail out greedy and incompetent Wall Street firms and other financial institutions have to provide over 25% of the funding of this abominable, incompetent and malicious organization. And Ireland is not the only country which the United Nations is trying to force to legalize abortion. It is just one nation of many the U.N. has bullied regarding the issue of abortion.

Thankfully, Congressman Thad McCotter, a pro-life Republican from Michigan has...

‘You’ve got only a couple thousand bucks in the bank. Your job pays you dog-food wages. Your credit history has been bent, stapled, and mutilated. You declared bankruptcy in 1989. Don’t despair: You can still buy a house.” So began an April 1995 article in the Chicago Sun-Times that went on to direct prospective home-buyers fitting this profile to a group of far-left “community organizers” called ACORN, for assistance. In retrospect, of course, encouraging customers like this to buy homes seems little short of madness.

Militant ACORN

At the time, however, that 1995 Chicago newspaper article represented something of a triumph for Barack Obama. That same year, as a director at Chicago’s Woods Fund, Obama was successfully pushing...

Let's get one thing straight. The government and its misguided housing policies caused our current financial mess. And, as a result, the government should help fix it.

That said, exactly "what" should have been fixed, "how" and for "how much" are the right places to focus our attention. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't make sure everyone knows exactly how we got in this mess.

The origins lie in the Clinton Administration's misguided attempt to raise the percentage of homeowners in America by forcing banks to give loans to people with, shall we say, less than stellar credit, (those "sub-prime" mortgages you keep hearing about).

So how did they do this? With two government (read: taxpayer)...

Well the debate everyone was waiting for is over, so now we can get to the tale of the tape and see what everyone had to say about it.

(by the way, my live-blog of the debate is here)

On to the feedback...

* Malkin says "Sarah Rocks!"

She was warm, fresh, funny, confident, energetic, personable, relentless, and on message. She roasted Obama’s flip-flops on the surge and tea-with-dictators declarations, dinged Biden’s bash-Bush rhetoric, challenged the blame-America defeatism of the Left, and exuded the sunny optimism that energized the...

When Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to the floor of the House on Monday to blame Republicans for the financial turmoil and charge them with a laissez-fare attitude toward regulation, it seemed like a calculated effort to shift attention and accountability from what Democrats have done to create the current conditions. Fortunately, we have YouTube.

At a 2004 hearing of the Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee, then-Chairman Rep. Richard Baker (R-La.) predicted the collapse of Fannie Mae if nothing was done. Baker called for more regulation, something Democrats claim Republicans never wanted. In an editorial Tuesday, The New York Times got it wrong when it accused...

Foxnews. Com posted this story on the new citizenship test that immigrants take before they become American citizens. I thought our supporters would like to test themselves on how well they know American history. The CCA staff did overall pretty well on the answers.

Never mind being smarter than a fifth-grader. Are you smart enough to be a U.S. citizen? (FOXNEWS.COM)

The Citizenship and Immigration Services has re-designed the citizenship test for immigrants who want to become naturalized Americans, revamping the questions for the first time since 1986.

The new test "demonstrates that they really are trying very hard to learn about this country. It will make them better citizens," said Chris Rhatigan,...

Despite efforts to reach out to the religious community "to expand their base," the Democrats in control of Congress continue to get it wrong. Yesterday, "The Washington Times" reported in an article entitled "Visitor Center said to slight religion," that more than 100 members of Congress are blasting the overseers (and hence the Democrats) of the soon-to-be-open Capitol Visitor Center for "censoring God, faith and religion."   Congressman J. Randy Forbes, a Republican from Virginia, and 107 other Members of the House of Representatives, sent a letter to the Architect of the Capitol's Office protesting that the national motto "In God We Trust" appears nowhere in the new visitors center which is mostly underground. Some 15,000 daily visitors are expected once the visitors...

America witnessed up close today the worst Congress in American history -- led by Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco -- in action, or more accurately, in inaction. The 110th Congress -- with an incredibly low 9% approval rating and which may be lucky to have a 1% approval rating soon -- failed to pass a rescue bill for some greedy and incompetent Wall Street firms following a radically-partisan speech by Nancy Pelosi on the House of Representatives floor before the vote.

The Democrats -- who caused the problem in the first place when they were last in control of Congress -- had passed legislation forcing banks, mortgage companies and other financial institutions, to lend money to people who could not afford their home...
