Iranians are Kerry's in-laws

HOW DARE YOU QUESTION MY PATRIOTISM liberals demanded during the Bush administration when they protested the war.

After reading former Republican Congressman Allen B. West's column on Democratic Secretary of State John Kerry's relations with Iranians, teh only question about Kerry's patriotism is whether it is to teh land he was born in or teh one his son-in-law's parents hail from.

Conservatives can win on social issues

For decades, Republicans have told social conservatives to button it because we cannot win on social issues. Republicans keep telling themselves they cannot survive without reaching out to various niche voting blocs. But empirical evidence shows that conservatives can win on social issues.

Consider gun control. Most Americans now support gun ownership. That's because the facts show gun control leads to more homicides.

The flag that saved Baltimore

Major George Armistead was one of five brothers who fought in the War of 1812. A veteran of the Quasi War with France in the waning years of the 18th century, he received a promotion to major in the 3rd Artillery Regiment on March 3, 1813. He was a hero in the capture of Fort George near the mouth of the Niagara River in Canada on May 27, 1813.

He delivered the captured British flags to President Madison in Washington, who immediately put Major Armistead in charge of Fort McHenry, which protected the Baltimore harbor. Designed by Frenchman Jean Foncin and named for the second Secretary of War, James McHenry, the post and its commander faced the severest test on September 13, 1814, and passed with flying colors.

Those colors were red, white and blue, stitched together by Mary Young Pickersgill, a widow who had learned flagmaking from her mother, Rebecca Young, who had begun making flags -- Continental Standards -- during the Revolutionary War.

Aborting babies damaged Planned Parenthood's souls

News reports that the Center for Medical Progress heavily edited its tapes of its sting on Planned Parenthood are themselves heavily edited because the reporter/abortion advocates who say that fail to tell their audience that the Center for Medical Progress took the unusual step of releasing the entire transcript oft he sting on Mary Gatter, medical director of Planned Parenthood of Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley, and Laurel Felczer, senior director of medical services there.

When was the last time a television station or network made such a full disclosure?

A careful reading shows the damage years of aborting babies 60 hours a week -- which is what Gatter said she did before retiring -- does to a person's soul. I really pity Dr. Gatter and Laurel Felczer.

Shove it, Jeb!

Jeb! Bush is the biggest joke in presidential politics. His daddy was president. His big brother was president. Now Jeb! thinks he should inherit the family digs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Fine. Whatever. Americans are not that stupid.

What sort of nation cuts up babies and sells the parts?

In the first half of the 19th century, Southerners refused to allow any discussion of slavery in Congress. They sought to suppress from the public view the reality of the horror of slavery. So liberals have silenced critics of the abortion industry for the last 40 years.

The Center for Medical Progress changed that this month by releasing not videos of the procedure itself, but videos that show the cavalier and callous manner the people at Planned Parenthood regard human life. Instead of giving these unwanted babies a proper burial, these abortionists sell them as parts. A third video released today continues the heart-rending saga.

The man who would have written the Declaration of Independence

History is made by people at places on dates, which is why socialist professors insist that history is not about names and places and dates. Facts get in the way of The Narrative, which is Marxist through and through.

One of the key moments and places in American history occurred in August 1774, when John Adams and the rest of the Massachusetts delegation to the Continental Congress met Dr. Benjamin Rush and other members of the Pennsylvania delegation at the Jolly Post Inn, a tavern in Frankford, Pennsylvania, to plot their strategy to get the colonies to unanimously declare their independence. The Frankford Advice was a brilliant strategy that in a mere two years would push the colonies to declare their independence.

And that petition would have been written not by Thomas Jefferson, but by Richard Henry Lee, if not for his wife's illness in June 1776 which forced him to return home briefly. A healthier wife may have made a great nation greater.

Carly: "Late-term abortion is bad for women’s health"

Carly Fiorina is the most dangerous woman in America. She is telling the truth about abortion. Nothing unsettles liberals and their faux conservative fellow traveler more than thetruth about abortion.

There goes the gayborhood

So much for equality. Salon is promoting gay privilege.

Soda companies fight for free speech in San Francisco

The government in San Francisco will fight to allow people to burn the flag and shout obscenities.

But advertise a legal product? Never! The liberal fascism continues, except companies are fighting back.

James Watson, the scorned Nobel laureate

     Science made James Watson, and it may destroy him. He worked with one Canadian and three British scientists to unlock the structure of DNA. But his interpretation of what is inside DNA forced him to retire at 79. Even great men have feet of clay.

Democrats for Iran

At least AP calls them fetal organs

For years, the abortion lobby has won the war of word. The Associated Press calls anti-abortion groups anti-abortion, which is accurate, but use "reproductive rights" to describe abortionists and their supporters. This is because the news media is dominated by abortion advocates.

But attempts by officials at the abortionist corporation Planned Parenthood have failed in their attempt to have baby parts from aborted babies called fetal tissue.

Finally someone tells the truth about Hillary Clinton

If you want to know why the Des Moines Register is afeared of Donald Trump, it may be because he is not afeared of the truth.

From the Hill: "Trump: Clinton email scandal is 'very serious and very criminal'."

Finally, someone acknowledges the illegality of sending state secrets through personal mail.
