Romney Now: I'm Conservative; Romney Then: 'My Views are Progressive'

Back when Mitt Romney was running for Governor, he proudly called himself 'a moderate' with 'Progressive' views. Now that he's running for president as a Republican in a conservative climate, he's changed his tune.

Video: Beck Threatening to Support Ron Paul, Breitbart Grills him

Look, Newt Gingrich has a double-checkered past when it comes to big government positions and statements. He's also the front-runner in the Republican nomination process. There is a disturbing narrative coming out of the mouths of Ron Pauliens at this point and it has a 'cut off your nose to spite your face' ring to it.

Apparently, Glenn Beck is adopting it. Pauliens, in general, believe there is no difference between Barack Obama and Newt Gingrich.

That's absurd.

Another aspect to Beck's take has to do with support for Israel. Beck touts himself as one of Israel's most staunchest supporters; it has become a central issue for him. All one has to do is juxtapose Newt's statement that the Palestinians are 'an invented people' with Paul's response to that and it becomes quite apparent that Newt supports Israel more than does Paul.

Perhaps worse than that is the fact that a vote for Paul is a vote for Obama and if Beck is going to take the position that Obama supports Israel as much as Gingrich does, he's delivered a severe self-inflicted wound.

In response to Beck's appearance on Andrew Napolitano's television show, Andrew Breitbart went after Beck very hard for this position.

Here is Beck's appearance with Judge Andrew Napolitano that Breitbart referred to:

Explosive: Actor on TLC's 'All American Muslim' Show is Pro-Hezbollah

Lowe's Home Improvement has found itself at the center of quite a bit of controversy by pulling its ads from The Learning Channel's (TLC) television show, All American Muslim but there is perhaps another, more explosive story regarding the program's content. In particular, one of the Imams featured in the show is quite radical.

The Shoebat Foundation has uncovered an interview Shia Imam Husham Al-Hussainy gave to Sean Hannity back in 2007. Al-Hussainy plays a prominent role in the television show:
The brand new TV show featured on Cable TV channel TLC tries to depict Muslims as "ordinary patriotic" Americans but fails to deliver in its very first episode by featuring a radical Shia Imam Husham Al- Husainy. In the first episode the Imam is featured marrying a male convert to Islam to a secular Muslim women. The Imam was exposed on the Sean Hannity Show back in February 2007. I remember listening to the actual interview live in which it was obvious the Imam supports Hezbollah a terror entity listed by the State Department. The Imam hates the the USA and Israel. You can hear in the interview what a nut job the Imam is and his gymnastics and crazy attacks in order to avoid answering simple questions.
As is clearly evident, this imam is beyond unhinged in this exchange. The first clip is the interview on Hannity's radio show in 2007:

Here is a panel on Hannity's television show discussing that interview:
