Eric Holder is Obstructing Justice with Fast and Furious Defense
The best reason to tell the truth is that it’s too hard to remember the lies.  When the U.S. Department of Justice released over…
Media Issues
It's here. "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" debuts in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12. I do believe this groundbreaking film by indie producers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney is the most important movie in America right…

Quote of the Day
