May 6, 2010 - Courting Latinos, Dems angle to keep issue alive

May 5, 2010 - Obama: Begin work this year on immigration reform

May 3, 2010 - Establishment choices vs. upstarts in 3 primaries in NC, OH, IN this week
May 3, 2010 - United States to show some of its nuclear hand - Does transparency now mean revealing national security secrets to anybody?  Why are we doing this at the United Nations?

US says it has 5,113 nuclear warheads

May 3, 2010 - Gates suggests big changes coming for Navy - Minimizing the strategic threats we face by citing only small threats to rationalize defense cuts.
May 28, 2010 - WH had Clinton try to ease Sestak out of Pa. race - Why would Bill Clinton agree to do this for Obama or Rahm Emanuel?  Surely he knew that this action could be illegal.  For those old enough to remember Doonesbury's objective commentary from the Nixon Watergate era - "Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!"  How is any honest journalist going to spin this one for the White House?

May 26, 2010 - Obama's new security goals prize nonmilitary moves - such as apologies

Obama to add homegrown terror to security strategy

May 24, 2010 - Obama seeks to force votes on spending cuts - another political stunt to create the illusion that he is for spending cuts when he is really just seeking more executive power.
May 24, 2010 - Landmark overhauls may not help Democrats at polls - We don't need more "big government ideas" and "solutions".  Those just keep making a bad situation even worse.  Does Obama still think we should all be saying, "Thank you"?  No, thanks.  You can keep your changes.
May 23, 2010 - New financial rules might not prevent next crisis - Another illusory solution by the same people who brought you the first failure.  Meanwhile, how are Fannie and Freddie doing?
May 21, 2010 - Obama orders new fuel standards for future - the latest decree by our ruler

May 19, 2010 - Calderon fires up immigration row in US visit - Outrageous interference in the internal affairs of the USA.  Look at Mexican immigration law, and how harshly it treats violators.

Listen to the podcast of the May 19 Mark Levin talk radio show as he discusses the subject.  See the related excerpts from Mexican immigration law at FactReal.  Take a look at Michelle Malkin's article of April 28 in Human Events - How Mexico treats illegal alients

Mexico president slams Arizona "discrimination" - and Obama outrageously agrees with him.

May 19, 2010 - Blumenthal looks to shift race focus off Vietnam - Another "You lie!" moment.
May 19, 2010 - Senate fails to end debate on bank regulation bill - the next legislative atrocity is briefly stalled, but it looks as though they still intend to ram it through soon
May 19, 2010 - Big lessons of primaries: What the heck were they? - Updated spin control.

Obama endorsements don't seem to help Democrats - Duh.  Bye, Specter.

Voters back anti-DC, anti-establishment candidates - Note the difference between voter turnout in the Republican primaries relative to the Democratic ones.  Who's motivated for change now?

Paul pledges tea party loyalty in Ky. Senate race

May 18, 2010 - US senators blast Arizona-China rights comparison - Michael Posner has been a loose cannon on deck in relations with China from the start.  A complete ideological disaster.  The fact that he was confirmed by the Senate just shows how urgently it needs to be changed.

Does anybody else remember Posner's role last October - November in preparations for Obama's trip to China, when they were trying to get China to agree to cap and trade policies as a way to help push it through the Copenhagen summit and Congress?  Was that a "human rights" issue, as his alleged area of prior expertise and his responsibility at the State Department?

May 18, 2010 - Primaries test incumbents' durability, tea party - Notice what the AP buried at the end of the story about Richard Blumenthal in CT, as though it were irrelevant or incorrect
May 17, 2010 - House GOP to Obama: Drop Net Neutrality Agenda - bureaucratic tyranny
Bailing out Greece:  Mike Pence "We didn't ask the EU to bail out New Jersey or California"
May 16, 2010 - Merkel: $1 trillion rescue package only buys time - Time is money - a LOT of money.  Your tax dollars are being wasted on another futile bailout to save failed socialist policies.

Greek leader considers action against US banks - Blame it all on Wall Street.  Deja vu?  Of course, the socialist politicians can't be blamed for creating the crisis through their actions.

May 15, 2010 - Trichet: economy in deepest crisis since WWII - Remember the Papiermark?

Mark Levin: exposes radical appointee by Obama to CMS - to oversee our health care system - the appointee regards the British health system as a good model for redistribution of wealth

May 12, 2010 - Heartland Institute: CMS nominee Donald Berwick's radical agenda

May 13, 2010 - Small business lobby joins challenge to health law - NFIB weighs in

Obama promotes small-business agenda in Buffalo - note the last line about the NY fundraiser after all the recent demagoguery about Wall Street.  $15,000 per person?  $50,000 VIP reception?

Petition drive: "We stand with Arizona, and against illegal immigration"  Stop the boycott!  Refer also to the related Facebook page  Support the rule of law, not partisan demagoguery.
Post Party Summits: Taking the Fight to the Ballot Box - interesting volunteer training initiative after the Tax Day Tea Parties by American Majority, Smart Girl Politics, and RedState.
Support Tim Burns for Congress in Pennsylvania's 12th District.  See Sarah Palin's comments.
May 12, 2010 - Voters' anti-establishment mood bites both parties - Say good-bye to 14-term Rep. Alan Mollohan (D) after the West Virginia primary yesterday.  Stay tuned next Tuesday when voters in Arkansas, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Oregon get their chance to be heard.
May 12, 2010 - Race for Ga. congressional seat heads to runoff - 9th District runoff June 8 between Republicans Tom Graves (35%) and Lee Hawkins (23%).  Candidates already eliminated in this special election to finish out Nathan Deal's term were  Steve Tarvin (15%), Chris Cates (12%), Bill Stephens (4%) and Bert Loftman (2.5%.

Your morning jolt: a Tea Party test moves to June 8 runoff - points out some more details, including the question of whether any of the losers will now drop out of the regular July 20 primary.

Lee Hawkins: "We going to win this thing"  Note the comment about Washington money.

May 10, 2010 - Rule change favors unions at airlines, railroads - In case you missed it, this is the latest atrocity.  It's clearly payback to the unions, changing a 76 year old rule to help them.  Don't miss the explanatory video on BigGovernment about union interests in UPS vs. FedEx.  Meanwhile, note S.3194 by Harry Reid to force recognition of unions for local police, firefighters.
May 8, 2010 - Obama says health care law already helps millions - We see already that this holds nobody accountable for the predictable failure, while it gives government growing control.
May 8, 2010 - US officials: New focus on striking US, the West - This is new?  Hello?
May 7, 2010 - Lawmakers can raise 'soft money' for redistricting - gerrymandering begins
May 6, 2010 - Tea party comes up short in early primaries - NC, OH, IN had a low GOP turnout, as in prior IL and TX primaries, but the Democratic turnout was far lower.  Although some incumbents are surviving primary challenges, many have also chosen to retire this year.
May 3, 2010 - Establishment choices vs. upstarts in 3 primaries in NC, OH, IN this week

Internal GOP wars shaping policies nationwide  Still pushing the narrative of a divided GOP.

May 2, 2010 - GOP expands political playing field; Dems slipping - Obama drones wanted.
May 1, 2010 - Lessons from health bill apply to financial reform - The "Chicago way", again.
May 1, 2010 - Obama takes direct aim at anti-government rhetoric - It's not that government is inherently bad.  It's that progressive politicians deliberately create harmful and costly government programs, regardless of any alleged good intentions.  Limited government limits their damage.
May 1, 2010 - Liberals struggle to challenge Dems on health care - They're not really in a position to "punish" those who didn't back their agenda.  Their focus is on saving themselves.   They aren't really going after people like Blanche Lincoln. They realize that she will lose - and they don't want to lose that seat with her, because it will make it harder to keep pushing their agenda. They just don't want others to cave in while they continue to try to ram through as much of their radical progressive agenda as possible before November.  After that, gridlock is back.

Explanation of the News Archive feature
Note that at you can see reader comments about the articles by following the "Show Comments" link which is found at the bottom of each article.  Since most articles no longer show up for visitors there within 24 hours, many articles have few comments unless they were very hot topics that day.  The AP often releases multiple versions of the same story, even with very minor revisions, in which case a new page is created for each version.  That causes reader comments to be scattered across multiple versions of the story.  We do not attempt to link to every version of the story.
At some point links may no longer work because the other websites involved will purge their content, but a Google search for the same headline may still find them through other sources for reference.
This tool was created to make it easier for conservative voters to go back and find relevant political stories long after they have disappeared from the current headlines.  In some cases these stories were hardly even mentioned at the time in the liberal news media, or quickly disappeared from the news, so many voters may be completely unaware of them.  Some of the stories display obvious bias by the reporters, but readers can be the judge of that.  The comments reflect our own editorial opinion on these stories.

Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Dick Armey of FreedomWorks -

Washington Could Use Less John Maynard Keynes and More Friedrich Hayek

Their "Patchwork Nation" blog includes some fairly interesting political research.  Refer to the Patchwork Nation map.
