NetRight Daily: HealthCare 

Passing ObamaCare Is Worse:  As Congress and the American people enter the final stage of the debate over ObamaCare, Congressional Democrats attempt to delude themselves into believing that, as the Washington Post reports, "passing the legislation is key to limiting damage to the party during this year's perilous midterm elections."

Denying the Truth At All Costs:  Politics and policy has become surreal. Webster's defines the term as "bizarre or dreamlike". No word better describes the current state of affairs.

Beck v. Levin Part 2:  In contrast to the vivid recollection I maintain of my inaugural exposure to Glenn Beck, I don't remember when I first became cognizant of Mark Levin. It had to have been in the mid-90's, though, when I first heard the incomparable Rush Limbaugh refer to "F. Lee" Levin. This was in the heyday of the O.J. Simpson trial; consequently, many of us were familiar with F. Lee Bailey, one of O.J.'s highly esteemed "Dream Team" of attorneys. This was the context in which Rush affectionately bestowed the moniker on his friend.

In Defense of the Filibuster:  Never mind that Democrats have controlled both the House and the Senate since 2007, following wins in the 2006 midterm election. Never mind that a Democratic president was elected in 2008. Never mind that congressional Democrats wasted the year that followed, during which they could have passed virtually any piece of legislation they desired, but chose instead to bicker over the details of a socialist health-care takeover. Why focus on these facts, when one can choose instead to dine from the ruling party's ever-growing buffet of lies?

CHQ - Americans Unhappy with Congressional Leadership of Both Parties 

Negatives for Congressional leaders reach all-time high
Rasmussen Reports - As the health care debate drones on and on in Congress, Americans are becoming increasingly frustrated with the Congressional leadership of both Parties, a recent Rasmussen poll revealed.  It's no shock that Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are so unpopular, but Minority Leader John Boehner also has reached a new high in unfavorable ratings - demonstrating that citizens are plain fed up with the lack of principles on both sides of the aisle in Congress.

Kevin McCarthy.

Faith Based Warfare

The "war on terror" has been like no other.  America has kidnapped and tortured dozens, hundreds, even thousands of innocent civilians, bombed poor villages off the map and turned on its own citizens.  We hold mock trials, hire mercenaries and have covered up so many crimes, from rape to murder to massive corruption and even treason that we have become unrecognizable as the country we were even in 2000.  America moved from "faith based initiatives" as a way of expanding public charities to "faith based" foreign policy which has become the greatest tragedy in our history since the Civil War.
