Pro-life Democrat Champion Bart Stupak Renews Battle

Democrat Congressman Bart Stupak, the pro-life champion for the year of 2009, seems to have his work cut out for him again this year. After six hours of debate and discussion on Thursday at The Blair House, it was only within the last few minutes of the event that the true purpose for the "Health Care Summit" was revealed.

After speaking for over two hours himself, and congressional Democrats speaking for another two hours, President Obama basically implied that if the Republicans do not go along with most of the provisions of the massive $2.3 trillion ObamaCare bill then the Democrats would go their own way; Obviously a reference to the use of the so-called reconciliation procedure to ram through ObamaCare.

But what is surprising is how soon into his term that they've begun to make those moves. Usually this sort of thing doesn't happen until after the mid-term elections are over.

Beverly Hills Doesn't Care for (Conservative) Free Speech

In what's starting to look like a case of history repeating itself, a contestant in the upcoming Miss California pageant has let it slip that she's opposed to gay marriage. And liberals are having fits.

In this case, the city council of Beverly Hills - the very city which Lauren Ashley will represent - has condemned her views and is demanding that the pageant not allow her to use the moniker "Miss Beverly Hills" in the competition... (READ MORE)
