Ken Blackwell has come running to Rand Paul's defense, desperately trying to explain away Paul's post-primary claims that he didn't support the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the idea of the government combating discrimination in private enterprises in general. Or at least that seems to be Blackwell's goal, though it is hard to say as his "defense" is utterly incoherent: [Rand Paul] a grilling from one end of the chattering class to the other about his supposed opposition to the great Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is a fact that he stumbled in some of his answers to questions... MORE >

According to the new Coral Ridge Ministries "documentary" on socialism, the whole country is going to end up like Detroit if President Obama has his way. National Association of Evangelicals has announced its willingness to partner with groups that offer contraceptive services and other programs aimed at reducing the number of abortions. The ACLJ is demanding that the Department of Justice allow volunteers to erect a replacement cross Mojave Desert World War I memorial. Mike Huckabee is taking his Fox News show to Las Vegas. Liberty Counsel says Dont'... MORE >

The National Association of Evangelical's immigration reform ad, signed by Mat Staver and Richard Land, can be seen here. Elsewhere, Land lays out his position on immigration reform. But already this effort is coming under attack from other right-wing groups. Including the AFA's Bryan Fischer, who calls it a "gentleman's disagreement," which is hilarious. Bill Donohue sure does have an ability to turn his personal crusades into full-blown scandals. Randall Terry prepares to protest Elena Kagan. And finally as graduation season being, Liberty... MORE >

We are not supposed to have religious tests for public office in the United States, but apparently reverse religious test are okay. How else do you explain Harry Jackson declaring that Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court must be defeated specifically because she is not a Protestant, claiming that a Court made up only of Catholics and Jews is fundamentally unable to "create an atmosphere for true justice": The nomination of Elena Kagan for Supreme Court should outrage evangelical Protestants. The reason is not simply her legal perspective, her lack of judicial... MORE >

I'm going to be off until next Wednesday, starting this afternoon, so here is an early wrap-up of today's right-wing miscellany: Jesse Lee Peterson declares Michael Steele to be a RINO for saying that Blacks do not have a reason to vote for the GOP. Now Tom Tancredo going after the SPLC. As is the Traditional Values Coalition's Andrea Lafferty, who also claims that PFAW is a "leftist hate group". The Institute on Religion and Democracy is calling on churches to "confront Islamic law" here in America. Finally, Tim Tebow was drafted by the... MORE >

Back in the summer of 2008, we produced a series of posts about an effort called "Stop the War on the Poor" that was led by Harry Jackson and Niger Innis, claiming to be a campaign to claim that "extreme environmentalists" who oppose increased domestic oil drilling are enemies of the poor. In essence, the group's message was that high energy prices disproportionately impact the poor and that domestic oil drilling was solution to keeping energy prices low. Not surprisingly, the effort was heavily supported by pro-drilling and other energy business interests. Now... MORE >

Rep. Michele Bachmann and Rep. Steve King are BFFs. Why is that not surprising? Why is Sen. Scott Brown's daughter now a contributor to "The Early Show"? Rick Santorum says the only reason he endorsed Arlen Specter last time around was because Specter promised to support President Bush's SCOTUS nominees. Focus on the Family has kicked-off a 12-city tour aimed at educating couples on how to strengthen their marriage, parenting skills, and family life. Harry Jackson defends Michael Steel, saying Steel deserves more time to get things organized.... MORE >

In her latest column, Star Parker announced that she is running for Congress in order to fight this nation's slide into socialism: I’ve often been approached to run for public office. However, I always deferred because I felt I could make the greatest difference delivering my message as a free agent, outside the formal structure of politics. But things have changed and now I’ve decided to run. We’ve totally reversed the direction we started in after we reformed welfare in 1996. As I wrote a little over a year ago: “I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out... MORE >
