Former GOP vice-presidential nominee and ex-Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin is getting ready to defend the "Christ" in Christmas in an upcoming book.
Palin, who returned to the Fox News network as an employee on Monday, told Megyn Kelly during an interview on the Fox & Friends show that book will target the political correctness trying to drown out Christ from the holiday.
"I'm doing great," Palin responded when she was asked how she was doing. "I'm very busy of course with my kids — two beautiful grandkids — writing a book, a book about Christmas and pushing back on the politically correct who would try to take Christ out of Christmas." more >>
Edward Snowden, the ex-CIA whistleblower responsible for "the biggest intelligence leak in the National Security Agency's (NSA) history," denied allegations that he was a Chinese spy.
During a Monday question-and-answer session with Britain's newspaper The Guardian, Snowden said, "No. I have had no contact with the Chinese government. Just like with the Guardian and the Washington Post, I only work with journalists."
Last week, members of the United States House of Representatives Intelligence Committee questioned Snowden's connection with China. "We need to ask a lot more questions about his motives, his connections, where he ended up, why he is there, how he is sustaining himself while he is there and is the Chinese government fully cooperating," said Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.). more >>
The advent of 'social media' has been heralded as a new, unbiased forum where ideology, politics and opinions are able to compete on a level playing field. From talk radio to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace, these forums are generally assumed to reflect the true voice of their subscribers - untainted by the liberal bias of the mainstream media.

Texas-based Pro-Life Revolution applied for 501(c)3 status with the IRS in January 2011--they received that status some 900 days later, on June 6, 2013 in a letter dated May 19. In the interim, they received letters asking for clarification and "more information," and a March 2012 phone call in which IRS agent Sherry Wan told Pro-Life Revolution President Ania Joseph how the IRS expects tax-exempt groups to act, think, and speak.
In a legally recorded call 14 months into an application process that was supposed to last no more than 270 days, Wan told Joseph:
"You cannot force your religion or force your beliefs on somebody else…. You have to know your boundaries. You have to know your limits. You have to respect other people's beliefs. more >>
Do you remember the last time you saw a movie and when it was over, you thought, "That was great, except there wasn't enough swearing?"
You don't? Neither do I.
There may yet be more profanity on broadcast television. For now, the FCC, which regulates broadcasting, is listening to "we the people" on the subject of what will be along on television. There's a deadline to voice our opinions by June 19. more >>
Craig Fletcher, the mayor of Vero Beach, Fla., has issued an apology for recent comments he made regarding Humanist Recognition Week, which he refused to approve because humanists do not worship Jesus Christ.
Fletcher said in a recent statement that after consulting with his wife and pastor, he has realized that his statements were "way out of line."
"I want to offer my sincerest apologies to anyone whom I may have offended by my remarks last Tuesday at the City Council meeting. It was a horrific statement and on reflection was way out of place for an elected official to take such a strident stance. I hope everyone will find it in their heart to forgive me," Fletcher told WPBF West Palm Beach. more >>
