A Teachable Moment for America’s Flawed Constitutional Scholar!
By John Lillpop --American Politics
After nearly seven years of lawless disregard for the rule of law, including the US Constitution, the Congress, and the overall will of the American people, it appears to have finally dawned on Barack Hussein Obama that even the smartest outlaw in town must eventually heel to the law.
And so it is that a profound Teachable Moment lurks at Obama’s feet in the Oval Office, in readiness to counter all the pious, self-righteous malarkey about doing the “right thing,” which The One has repeatedly used to justify presidential tyranny.

Sex—Sex and more sex…Every day, Every way, Every One
By Dr. Laurie Roth --Cover Story
It appears the gift of ‘sex’ and sexuality has been forced over a cliff and shattered into a thousand pieces of broken and perverted expression. Experts are everywhere and those who demand to change our legal, religious, educational and political core. We must become another creature…void of Godly morals, laced with experimental sexual drives and controlled by feelings, Government and liberal agendas. “Act out, do it again and we will treat your diseases.”

Carly Fiorina hammers Hillary and Obama on equal pay for women
By Robert Laurie --American Politics
A while back, we watched Rand Paul turn the standard media “gotcha” questions about abortion into a deft attack against the left. It was smart, tough, and something you’d hope to see more of. If you’ve been watching Carly Fiorina’s nascent campaign, you have. In fact, she’s turned the idea of making opponents into their own worst enemies into something of an art form.
If Hillary refuses to answer a question, Fiorina points that out in her own response. If Hillary dodges the press for one of her supporter-only “closed-door meetings,” Fiorina sets up out front and invites the press to grill her. It’s been a pleasure to watch and, yesterday, she used the strategy to turn a gotcha into a sharp attack against Obama and Clinton.
