In Era of Polarization, Republicans and Democrats Unite: Religious Freedom Trumps Diplomatic Expediency 6/20/2014 Just days after the Pew Research Center, in the largest political survey in its history, found that Republicans and Democrats are further apart ideologically than at any point in recent history, the Senators of the Foreign Relations Committee provided a stunning counterpoint: regardless of party, they agreed unanimously on one of the most vital issues of our day -- that in dealing with the United States of America, religious freedom trumps diplomatic expediency. "In a striking show of solidarity, all ten Democrats and all eight Republicans on the Committee signed a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to support religious freedom for Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the spiritual head of Orthodox Christianity, the second largest Christian Church in the world," said Dr. Anthony Limberakis, National Commander of the Order of St. Andrew -- Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. "We great ...
MOST FILIPINOS-- 85 percent of them, according to a survey by the US-based Pew Research Center-- may think the US their lord and savior. But no matter how convinced they are that their devotion to the US is reciprocated, and that the latter will go to war for them in case of a confrontation with the Chinese bully, on the first day of his visit, US President Barack Obama expertly dodged the question of whether his country would defend the Philippines in the same manner that he unequivocally pledged to defend Japan.   Obama framed his statement in general terms, affirming that the US would come to the Philippines' defense against any country that attacks it, but at the same time declaring that the US is not isolating China, much less thinking of going to war with it.  The reasons should be simple enough even for Philippine officialdom to understand. Not only has Japan been the US junior partner in Asia for over sixty years, it has also been one if its biggest trading partners and military lapdogs from the ...
# NEWS REEL ….. POLITICAL – 662. Most Indians rooting for change, Modi: Survey The Indian mood is "sour" as 70 percent of the people are dissatisfied and are rooting for a change in political leadership, a prominent US-based research group said Tuesday. The study also found that 78 percent of its respondents favoured BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as compared to the 50 percent who were supportive of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi. The Pew Research Center said that most Indians surveyed are optimistic about the Indian economy. On Foreign Policy issues, a major section of those surveyed felt that Pakistan is a "great threat", and most also had an "unfavourable" view of China in contrast to most Indians holding a favourable view of the US. According to Bruce. E. Stokes, director, Global Economic Attitudes at the Pew Research Center (US), most people surveyed were more favourable towards the US than China. "Indians have less confidence in Obama (President Barack Obama), around 10 pe ...
Ever since the Russian military occupied Crimea, Mitt Romney has been doing something of a victory lap for his much-ridiculed comment, during the 2012 presidential campaign, that Russia was America's top geopolitical foe. But on Tuesday, during a stop in the Netherlands, President Barack Obama refused to call Romney a prophet. Russia, he said, is a "regional power" - and a weak one at that. Americans, it seems, fall somewhere in between the Romney and Obama camps. In a survey released on Tuesday, the Pew Research Center found that 43 percent of respondents now consider Russia a "serious problem", up from 36 percent last fall, and 26 percent consider Russia an "adversary", up from 18 percent in the fall...
WASHINGTON SECRETS Poof: Public says America's world leadership has tumbled to 40-year low BY PAUL BEDARD | DECEMBER 3, 2013 AT 3:17 PM TOPICS: WASHINGTON SECRETS AFGHANISTAN IRAN POLLS CHINA SYRIA George W.

President Barack Obama receives the Nobel Prize medal and diploma during a ceremony in Raadhuset... For the first time in nearly 40 years, a majority of Americans believe the United States is less important around the world and that it should mind its own business, a stunning rejection of President Obama’s Foreign Policy just four years after he received the Nobel Prize. A new Pew Research Center poll found that 53 percent of people believe that the U.S. is playing a less important role as a world leader than a decade ago, the highest figure since 1984. Worse: 70 percent said that the U.S. is respected less than in the past, almost matching the high reached under former President Ge ...
Africa's President reveals the SHAME of America .Africa more a Christian Nation than America??? I am so Ashamed! President Barack Obama's comments while in Senegal last week in support of *** rights aren't sitting well with politicians in Kenya, where same-sex acts are treated as crimes. Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president William Ruto slammed Obama's remarks at separate religious events. Addressing a congregation Sunday, Ruto said Kenya will uphold its strong religious beliefs on homosexuality. "This country, the nation of Kenya, is a God-fearing nation," Ruto said. Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya, where 90 percent of people believe homosexuality is wrong, according to the Pew Research Center. "Those who believe in other things, that is their business," Ruto said, referring to Obama's comments in support of *** marriage. "We believe in God." Obama's comments followed the Supreme Court's rulings on the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8. The Court's decisions legalized same sex m ...
America’s Future Belongs to Islam by PAUL L. WILLIAMS, PHDFebruary 6, 2013 (author of Crescent Moon Rising) Islam, according to newly released data from the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies, is now the fastest growing religion in America, verifying President Barack Obama's claim that the United States is "no longer a Judeo-Christian country." How many Muslims now live within the country remains anyone's guess, since the U.S. Census Bureau neglects to collect data on religious identification. A 2008 study by Cornell University projected that the number of Muslims in America had climbed from 1.6 million in 1995 to 7 million.[i] A U.S. News and World Report survey, which was conducted at the same time, placed the figure at 5 million,[ii] while the Pew Research Center set the number at 2.35 million. But Pew Researchers admit that their survey was not thorough since it neglected to take into account immigrant and poor black Muslims.[iii] What's more, these researchers only contacted ...
NEW YORK –- MSNBC President Phil Griffin labels his network's sensibility as progressive, but the cable news channel could also be described these days as simply pro-Obama. In the final week of the 2012 election, MSNBC ran no negative stories about President Barack Obama and no positive stories about Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to a study released Monday by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism. MSNBC's afternoon and primetime hosts kept their sights on Romney and the Republicans during the election cycle, while spending considerably less time holding Obama accountable on issues like civilian casualties from drone strikes, use of executive power and the Afghanistan conflict, the nation's longest-ever war, which escalated under the current White House. Instead, the network's top partisan hosts –- with the exception of former Republican Rep. Joe Scarborough –- seemed to circle the wagons around the Democratic president during his reelection bid.
Father Peter Irving on the Election: Fr Peter is a Pastor of a church in LA. On Tuesday, November 6, we faced as a nation a "God or mammon" choice of mammoth proportions. In the most consequential election of our history, the majority of Americans voted for mammon and rejected God. Some did so knowing full well what they were doing (e.g., the Planned Parenthood and the LGBT crowd). Others did so unaware of the dire and far reaching ramifications of their vote. This was certainly the case with the Hispanic vote. According to the Pew Research Center, "Latinos voted for President Barack Obama over Republican Mitt Romney by 71% to 27%." This is an astounding statistic not only because the differential is so great but more so because the majority of Hispanics identify themselves as Catholics. This can only mean that millions of believing Hispanic Catholics, the very ones who pack our churches Sunday after Sunday and who have such a deep devotion to the Mother of God, voted for the following: (1) for more abort ...
Bloomberg News: Pew: US Won't Avoid Fiscal Cliff Due to GOP A majority of Americans expect the U.S. to go over the fiscal cliff at the beginning of 2013 and would blame Republicans if that happens, according to a poll published Tuesday. The survey by the Pew Research Center and the Washington Post found 51 percent of those polled said they don’t think President Barack Obama and Congress will be able to agree on a package of tax increases and spending cuts to replace the automatic reductions in government spending and the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts scheduled for Jan. 1. Thirty-eight percent said they expected Obama and Congress to cut a deal. If lawmakers fail to reach a deal, 53 percent said Republicans in Congress will bear responsibility, compared with 29 percent who said Obama will be at fault and 10 percent who chose both sides. The fiscal cliff refers to a $607 billion combination of automatic spending cuts and tax increases scheduled for 2013 that were enacted as part of an agreement to r ...

The Obama presidency did not cause the sea change it promised in the way America is viewed by the Muslim world, reports TheDC's Neil Munro: "Despite a claim by President Barack Obama that 'attitudes about Americans have changed' as a result of his Foreign Policy in Libya and Egypt, polls show support of the United States among Arabs has declined since former President George W. Bush’s tenure. Positive views of the U.S. in several Muslim nations slipped from 22 percent in 2008 to 19 percent in 2012, according to a Pew Research Center report announced in June 2012. Support in both Pakistan and Jordan fell from 19 percent to 12 percent, while U.S. popularity in Turkey rose, from 12 percent to 15 percent." The Daily Caller
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's strong performance in last week's debate helped him pull ahead of President Barack Obama, a Pew Research Center poll showed on Monday.
Picket Fences Are Long Gone August 24, 2012 by Sam Rolley PHOTOS.COMThe American middle class is shrinking rapidly, and those holding on to the vestiges of the socioeconomic bracket once exemplary of the American dream now have it worse than ever before. This, according to a new study out from the Pew Research Center, is a trend that will most likely continue in the United States. As both President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney attempt to make their case to the American public of how they plan to embolden the American middle class, the population segment is in the worst shape it’s been since World War II. In 1971, about 61 percent of American households were described as middle class. Today, just 51 percent fall into the group. The most rapid decline in middle-class affluence, according to Pew, has occurred over the past decade. According to Pew: For the middle-income group, the “lost decade” of the 2000s has been even worse for wealth loss than for income loss. The median income of the mi ...
President Barack Obama has opened a 10-point lead nationally over Republican Mitt Romney as voters increasingly view Romney unfavorably, according to a Pew Research Center poll released today.
Poll . Few Americans think that Romney's faith resembles their own faith WASHINGTON (AP) — Most of America doesn't relate to Mitt Romney's religion but that may not matter in his race against President Barack Obama. Those are the findings of a new Pew Research Center poll released Thursday, about a month before Republican Romney is set to become the first Mormon presidential nominee of a major political party. Misgivings about the Mormon faith are widespread and persistent. Nearly two-thirds of non-Mormons said they see Romney's faith as very different from their own while just half consider it a Christian faith. Those numbers are little changed since Romney's first run for the presidency pushed Mormonism to the political forefront in 2007.
