Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of the popular TLC series 19 Kids and Counting are forming a coalition of pro-life groups to help fight against abortion.
The idea stems from their recent trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC; to the Duggars, abortion is itself a holocaust.
“A couple of weeks after we went to the Holocaust Museum it dawned on us that there is a holocaust taking place right here in America!” the Duggars wrote.
“More than 56 million lives have been destroyed in our country! That is over 4,000 babies being killed and 4,000 women beingMore >
George Will of ABC News says the opposition to gay marriage in the United States is slowly but quite literally dying; it’s primarily older residents, he told This Week.
As the Supreme Court prepares to take up two landmark cases on same-sex marriage, Will said yesterday that it’s clear where public opinion is headed.George Will on Gay Marriage
“There is something like an emerging consensus,” the conservative writer said, noting voters in three states recently endorsed same-sex marriage initiatives.

Move over, Gloria Allred. Donald Trump will see your “October surprise” and raise you “gigantic” bombshell about President Barack Obama, which he plans to drop mid-week.
Trump claims whatever he has on the Prez “could swing the election.”
The die hard Republican, who considered running against Obama himself at one point, is planning to reveal the shocker via Twitter at some point on Wednesday, he told Fox News.
What is it, exactly?!
Think about “something very, very big concerning the president of the United States. It’s going to be very big. I know one thing – you willMore >
An audio recording of President Obama speaking at Chicago’s Loyola University in 1998 has surfaced. In it, Obama outlines his belief in the redistribution of wealth.
Then-Illinois State Senator Obama spoke out against “propaganda” that said government doesn’t work and the need to use its means to help the less fortunate.
Obama discussed the need to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution.” Take a listen below …
The recording, leaked online Tuesday, is the obvious conservativeMore >
Former President Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention last night was one of his all-time great stem-winders, and nearly shut down Twitter.
An estimated 496,222 tweets were posted during Clinton’s 48-minute defense of President Barack Obama, and Bubba certainly has no shortage of celebrity fans.
Read some of the best reactions to his impassioned, heartfelt speech below:

As the organizer and headlining performer at the Budweiser Made In America festival in Philadelphia this weekend, Jay-Z received a boost from one of his biggest fans:
United States President Barack Obama.
In a pre-recorded video, Obama said Jay-Z’s personal story is what Made In America – the concert series’ tagline – means. He also urged concert-goers to vote, obvs.
Obama is up for reelection on Tuesday, November 6. Nicki Minaj endorsed Mitt Romney today in a new rap song, but it’s safe to say we know which way Jay’s voting.
Check out the Obama Jay-Z concert below:More >
The biggest story to come out of Thursday’s conclusion of the Republican National Convention was not Mitt Romney’s acceptance specch, but #Eastwooding.
Eastwooding being the Twitter hashtag for parodies, jokes and memes at the expense of acting legend Clint Eastwood’s unusual, yet highly entertaining speech.
The 82-year-old debated an invisible Obama in an empty chair in what had to be the strangest endorsement of Romney all week, and the Internet went nuts.
Here’s the original photo – angled so Invisible Obama still uses a teleprompter (subtly hilarious) – along with some of our favoriteMore >
Republicans. When will they learn.
With some notable exceptions (Ted Nugent, Dave Mustaine, Hank Williams Jr.), music stars seem far from keen on having their material used at GOP campaign rallies.
Today, Dee Snider became the latest to decry such a move. He surely won’t be the last. Said a rep for the Twisted Sister rocker / Celebrity Apprentice star:
“It was brought to my attention today that Paul Ryan has been using client Dee Snider’s composition ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ in his political campaign to become the Vice President of The United States of America.
Dee does not support PaulMore >
It’s not quite Time’s breastfeeding cover, but Newsweek is generating plenty of headlines with its new controversial cover story calling for President Obama’s defeat.
The title says it all: “Hit the Road, Barack. Why We Need a New President.”
Niall Ferguson delves a list of what he calls Obama’s broken promises and budget failures, advocating instead for the Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
In a statement addressing the cover, Newsweek’s executive editor, Justine Rosenthal, said they wanted to give readers a taste of both sides of the aisle.
“These are arguments; theyMore >
Ah, Hank Williams Jr.
Guy really needs to join fellow musicians Ted Nugent and Dave Mustaine on a Anti-Obama Conspiracy Tour 2012. The sound bites would be incredible.
At his concert Friday night at the Iowa State Fair – where Obama bought beers earlier in the week – Williams absolutely laid into the President on stage.
What did he say, exactly?
Following Williams’ song “We Don’t Apologize For America” a chant of “U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A” broke out amongst the crowd, according to the Des Moines Register.
Hank told the crowd he was their mouthpiece, and said, “We’ve got a Muslim president whoMore >
The 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, celebrates his birthday today. The Big Dawg is now 66 years young. Happy birthday, Bubba!
William Jefferson Clinton, the pride of Hope, Ark., remains the only Democrat to win two full White House terms since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Clinton presided over the largest peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history, and left office extremely popular, despite the whole impeachment thing.
Hey, no one’s perfect, right?

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine says President Barack Obama somehow “staged” the recent Colorado shooting as part of a conspiracy to ban guns. Seriously.
At a Tuesday, August 7 performance in Singapore, Mustaine told the crowd, “Back in my country, my president … he’s trying to pass a gun ban.”
“So he’s staging all of these murders, like the ‘Fast And Furious’ thing down at the border … Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there …More >

Former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones, a.k.a. the female Sandusky, is firing back at her at critics and the rumors about her personal life despite a request by prosecutors for a gag order in her sexual assault case.
Once a captain of the Cincinnati Ben-Gals (get it?!) and a former high school teacher, Sarah Jones is accused of sexually abusing a student and unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual activity.
