Republicans lost the Senate and the House in 2006 because of corruption and backroom deals. Scott Brown was elected in Massachusetts because the people are fed up with the corruption and backroom deals of the Democrats. Scott Brown's election was not a "wake up" call to Democrats, it was a warning from the people to both major parties. The message is clear: We want honesty and transparency and no more secret deals that cost us, the people, our treasury.
WHITE HOUSE CORRUPTION - The Obama White House may be the most corrupt since the invention of the telephone. The Assistant Secretary of Energy, Cathy Zoi, is responsible for oversight in disbursing the stimulus funds. She is married to Robin Roy, a top executive at Serious Materials, a manufacturer of "sustainable green building materials" including windows. Ms. Zoi and her husband own 120,000 vested shares and options of Serious Materials. Zoi regulates this company and its "green" manufacturing. John Stossel, who recently moved from ABC to FOX has exposed this corruption at the highest level of the Obama Administration in a program that shows President Obama and Vice President Biden pushing the products of this company over those of Pell and other windows manufacturers. Stossel's segment on Serious Materials is a must see. View here
FT HOOD REPORT A CRUEL JOKE - The report issued this week by the Army on the massacre at Ft. Hood by Muslim doctor Najil Hasan can at best be called a cruel joke on the victims. Not even once is it mentioned that Hasan was a Muslim. It calls for his superiors to be punished for missing his radicalism and then never mentions that this "radicalism" was Islamic. Congressman John Carter (R-TX) who represents the district in which Ft. Hood is located said, "I think it's just another example of this fear we have of saying the wrong thing that might offend someone." Read this powerful op-ed on the report.
NAVY SEALS PERSECUTED BY POLITICAL CORRECTNESS - I cannot in good conscience recommend the military services to young men and women any longer. The political correctness under George W. Bush, which has only increased under Barack Obama, has made the military unsuitable for those who wish to serve and defend their nation. This is the reality today: If you are a highly trained combat specialist in the Army or Navy, you could well be imprisoned for the rest of your life for an act of heroism defending the nation. That is the awful possibility facing three Navy Seals who captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq. They now face court martials and jail time because the captured terrorist claims he received a bloody lip on the way to incarceration. The Navy now plans to call this terrorist murderer as a witness against the Seals. A Facebook page has been established explaining the issue in detail and how to help the wrongfully accused Seals. The persecution of the three Navy Seals in the name of political correctness makes a mockery of justice, and supports and encourages radical Islamic terrorists.
SCOTT BROWN ELECTION IS NOT A REPUBLICAN VICTORY - On Wednesday, January 20th Republicans in Washington were bloated with arrogant victory. I told one Republican Senator, "Arrogance is what lost this seat for the Democrats, don't go there." I was not alone in tossing cold water on Republican grandstanding. This is the reality: The Republicans didn't win in Massachusetts; the Democrats lost. The Democrats lost because of arrogance and backroom deals that disturbed at the deepest level America's sense of fairness. Almost 25% of Democrats voted for Scott Brown. His victory was as much a message to Republicans as to Democrats. The message was clear; no more secret backroom deals that affect the people as a whole. Stop the corruption and do everything in the open as the Founders intended.
FIGHT FOR LIFE - Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) has written a brilliant op-ed on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade that should be read by all. I highly recommend you read his Fight for Life and pass it on to others. Click here

GEERT WILDERS GOES ON TRIAL - The leader of the political party that came in second in European parliamentary elections has gone on trial for insulting Islam in Holland. Prosecutors in Holland weekly ignore the anti-Christian and anti-Semitic ravings of imams in their country and instead have chosen to try to jail a Member of Parliament for "insulting Islam." This case sums up what is wrong with Western Europe and why it is very possible that within the next two decades European nations will become Islamic and Christianity will be outlawed.
