In addition to the "excitement" provided by the Left earlier today at the Values Voter Summit, some homosexual activists were protesting outside the Omni Shoreham Hotel this evening. They claim that Christian values are killing them. The the truth is precisely the opposite.
The last speaker of the afternoon session of the Values Voter Summit was Kamal Saleem, founder of Koome Ministries. Saleem is a former terrorist who worked for the PLO, beginning at age 7. He has worked for Yasser Arafat, Muammar Gadaffi, and Saddam Hussein. However, as an adult, he suffered an accident and was nursed back to health by Christians.
This afternoon, U.S. Senate candidate from Texas Ted Cruz spoke at the FRC Values Voter Summit. Cruz talked about polls, the economy and where it seems America is heading, American stature and respect in the world, religious freedom and America's Christian heritage.
GOP Vice Presidential Candidate and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) spoke at the FRC Values Voter Summit this morning, welcomed by a very enthusiastic crowd. Ryan spoke not only on the violence currently going on in the Middle East, but on the economic conditions in America and President Obama's broken promises. There was also a little dust-up from liberal disruptors in the audience.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. this morning. She discussed Islamic violence against America and Americans overseas, and efforts within our own federal government to purge any negative reference to Islam or any ties between Islam and terrorism from official documents.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was the first speaker at today's opening day of the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. He spoke of violence throughout the world, violence in the womb here at home, as well as the moral and spiritual crisis our nation faces.
I had the honor of having breakfast with former US Attorney General Ed Meese at the Liberty University-sponsored breakfast. Ambassador Barukh Binah, Deputy Chief of Mission at the Embassy of Israel in Washington, DC., was the keynote speaker. I also learned that in addition to GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan speaking this morning, GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney will also speak.
I flew to Washington D.C. today to cover the Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit. This year's event should be especially exciting for a number of reasons. It's an election year, GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan will be speaking, and tensions are elevated with the shooting of a FRC security guard by a homosexual activist less than a month ago. Should be interesting.
This is some good analysis from Glenn Beck here on the victory of Tea Party-supported U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz in Texas Tuesday. There's a lot of love for Rick Perry in Texas. But even though Perry endorsed Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, it wasn't enough to overcome the Tea Party power. What's more, Dewhurst spent four times what Ted Cruz--who has never run for office before--spent. This win by underdog Cruz has sent chills down the spines of many Democrats...and more than a few establishment Republicans. Despite media claims to the contrary, the Tea Party definitely is not dead.
Louisiana parents and students who are ambitious to switch out of failing public schools have until June 30 to become part of history. That is the cut-off date for applications to be submitted to the state education department for scholarship funds that can be used to cover the full cost of private school tuition. In May, the state lawmakers approved what is arguably the most audacious and far reaching school voucher program in the entire country at the behest of Gov. Bobby Jindal.« Previous Page — Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
