Michael Savage Throws Gingrich A Million Dollar Bone…To Quit (VIDEO)

Every day, these loyal American Muslims have to fight the stereotype that all Muslims are out to destroy the Western world.

Who says the Republicans have ended American manufacturing? They have created an entire new industry out of manufactured indignation over manufactured wars, like the War on Families, the War on Christmas and the War on Religion.

Conservatives Recognizing Huntsman As Conservative. When Will Liberals?

Jon Huntsman doesn’t strut around the debate stage saying ‘illegals should be electrocuted’ or ‘Obama is a Marxist, fascist, Muslim.’ He doesn’t have a catchy and overly simplistic motto like 9-9-9, but don’t let his rational appearance fool you into believing he’s one of us.
