Today, Justice John Paul Stevens announced that he will retire from the Supreme Court after nearly 35 years of service ... and the Right has been quick to issue warnings to President Obama that they are ready to fight. American Center for Law and Justice: "The announcement of Justice Stevens' retirement underscores the reality that President Obama will make a second appointment to the nation's highest court that will impact generations to come," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "While there's certain to be much debate about Justice Stevens' replacement, there is... MORE

Earlier this year, Lisa Miller kidnapped her daughter Isabella and disappeared in order to avoid complying with a court ruling granting custody of the child to her former partner, Janet Jenkins; a ruling that came about due precisely to the fact that Miller had repeatedly refused to abide by court-ordered custody arrangements. Miller was recently held in contempt of court and now faces arrest. Shortly after Miller disappeared, Liberty Counsel, which had represented her for years and turned her into a right-wing celebrity, tried to wash its hands of her, at least as it pertained to her...

Sen. Jim DeMint's speech at CPAC is pretty much the entire conference in a nutshell. After spending the majority of his address bad-mouthing the other Republicans in the Senate for not being a true conservative like he is, DeMint turned to the 2012 election, noting that the next president has to be more than just a good speaker, saying that "just because you're good on TV doesn't mean you can sell socialism to freedom-loving Americans." The next president, DeMint asserted, had to be willing to tell Americans the hard truths, meaning that the federal government was... MORE

A few weeks ago in his column for WorldNetDaily, Ken Hutcherson penned this line: I think Christians are the new Negro – but that's an issue for a follow-up column. Well, that follow-up column is here: Many reading this may not understand where I came up with this concept of calling Christians "the new Negro." The reason is because there are undeniable similarities. Jim Crow laws were passed to keep me from having my constitutional rights and my rights under the Declaration of Independence of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Even though the Constitution gave me... MORE

When it comes to ginning up anti-gay opposition, few can hold a candle to the Traditional Values Coalition: ENDA is a direct assault on the constitutionally guaranteed free exercise of religion. This means that you can have a belief in your heart but not practice it. It is key legislation favored by the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) lobby to gain federally-protected minority status for sexual behaviors that most Americans consider bizarre or abnormal ... ENDA will force businesses, public schools (pre-kindergarten through 12th grade), as well as Christian entities such as... MORE

It is becoming increasingly clear that Alan Keyes has reached the outer limits of the right-wing fringe movement, which is saying something considering that he had always pretty resided on the fringes to begin with and has only been heading further out since the election of Barack Obama. But his latest WorldNetDaily column defending Rev. James David Manning, pastor of Atlah World Missionary Church, really is remarkable, even for him. Normally, I'd post some of Manning's bizarre rantings here to give you a sense of who he is, but his account has been suspended from YouTube, so I'll... MORE
