According to the LA Times, Al Gore recently bought an $8,875,000 house in the Montecito-area in Santa Barbara, California which has a swimming pool, spa, fountains, six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Opponents of Arizona’s new law which empowers local authorities to deal with the illegal immigration problem that the federal government refuses to deal with have portrayed the law as a Nazi-like “Show me your papers!” fascist law.

Rep Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) was holding a press conference to rail against the new law when CNS News asked if he was committed to controlling the southern border of the U.S. against the drug trade.

Another ObamaCare Nightmare

Another ObamaCare Nightmare

America is discovering in horror just what Nancy Pelosi meant when she famously stated during the health care debate that, “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.” While many are chasing the question of if Obama knew the bill would end up costing more than claimed, when he knew, and if he suppressed the information until the vote occurred, there is another massive problem discovered within the law.

Illegal Aliens Self-Deport Over Tougher Immigration Enforcement

I hear people say all the time that we can’t completely catch and deport every illegal alien in America…so we shouldn’t bother trying. Yet Arizona’s new immigration law is already driving illegal aliens to “self-deport.”

Scientist: Cap and Trade Based on Power Grab Not Science

I know Al Gore has told us that the science of global warming is “settled” and that there is “consensus” in the scientific community about his religion, er, science. But such assertions are just a few light-years off from the truth. Former NASA climate scientist Dr. Roy Spencer says climate legislation is more about grabbing power than science, and that human contributions of CO2 may actually be beneficial.

Poll: Support for Repeal of Govt Health Care Bill Increasing

President Barack Obama and his fellow socialists in congress were desperately hoping the American people would just shut up and like it once they passed their unconstitutional health care scheme a few weeks ago…but the opposite is proving true.
