The GOP - Finally - Believes it Can Defeat Obama
With yesterday’s clean sweep of five more Republican primaries, Mitt Romney has clearly secured the GOP presidential nomination. And - for the first time - even previously cynical members of the Republican establishment now believe Romney has a real chance to defeat President Obama in November. Thus pressure is being exerted on all the remaining candidates, i.e. Newt Gingrich, to embrace Romney and get everyone on the same page. So it was no coincidence that yesterday morning it was announced that Santorum and Mitt would be meeting next Friday, May 4th, for their first sit-down since Santorum suspended his campaign.

The John Edwards Trial
Legal Analysis by James Hirsen
With a favorability rating at 3 percent, John Edwards is the least popular political figure in America. That's what the Justice Department is counting. The prosecution has a difficult case. They allege that Edwards conspired with two of his backers to secretly funnel about $1 million to his mistress, Hollywood videographer Rielle Hunter, who was pregnant with his child. The U.S. attorneys contend that the cash amounted to illegal, unreported campaign contributions because they were being used to cover up a relationship whose exposure could damage his political prospects. But they are pushing the campaign laws into uncharted territory. The U.S. attorneys are counting on the salacious and shocking testimony of Edwards' aid, Andrew Young to turn the jury against the former presidential candidate, if he can survive cross examination.
New York Times bestselling author and law professor, James Hirsen is available to explain the significance and developments of the Edwards trial.
How Can We Support Mitt?
By Doug Johnson
Even if Mitt Romney was not your first choice for the GOP nomination, we must remember that he would be a far better president than Obama. After all, Romney may be a big government guy, but he’s not out to continue the dismantling of our constitutional republic. So, we must find answers to the tough questions he will face in the general election against Obama. He has some big issues to deal with, such as his liberal record as governor of Massachusetts, his history of flip-flopping, and his creation of and unwavering support of Romneycare. But we must stop the destruction being done to our country by Obama so it is imperative that we come up with good answers to these questions. [more...]
More Talk as the Iranian Nuclear Bomb Ticks
There is a very dangerous school of thought throughout the West that was succinctly expressed to me a few years back by a State Department Official. “Talking,” he said with a great deal of confidence, “is always better than not talking. After all, what harm can words do?” Plenty. After the' P5 plus 1 talks' (The United States, The Russian Federation, China, Great Britain, France, plus Germany), adjourned in Istanbul last Sunday, European Union Chief Negotiator, Catherine Ashton said, “The day-long talks at an Istanbul conference center did not yield an agreement on specific curbs to Iran’s nuclear program, but U.S. and European officials described the negotiations as ‘constructive and useful’ and said a second round had been set for May 23 in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.” [more...]
