Examining the Tea Party's Divine Claim to Nation's Founding

Monday, October 18, 2010

One of the key characteristics of Tea Party leaders and candidates is their almost divine claim to the symbolism of our nation’s founding fathers. Politicians have always reshaped the past to meet their own goals. But, with the Tea Party, the message seems more fervent. Fox News host Glenn Beck, for example, has told his viewers on Fox News that "progressives have built up this wall of separation between Church and State and it’s nonsense."

C Street: Sex Scandals, Fundamentalism, Family

Monday, September 27, 2010

133 C Street Southeast is a nondescript red-brick building in Washington DC. Behind the bricks, however, the building registered as a church and affiliated with a secretive Christian group known as “The Family.”

C Street friends and “Family” have included Strom Thurmond, Pat Robertson's father (Absalom Willis Robertson), John Ashcroft, and some of the biggest names in government.

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford shares ties with C Street. In fact, he disclosed the truth about his extra-marital affair with his friends there before the affair went public.

But Sanford’s isn’t the only sex scandal linked to C Street. And sex scandals are, in fact, only one of many questionable things linked to the brick structure on Capitol Hill.
