Candidate for Senate Dan Liljenquist (left) pledged to The New American that should he be elected to the U.S. Senate he will offer legislation explicitly repealing the indefinite detention provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney swept presidential primaries in five northeastern states April 24, widening his delegate lead on rivals Rep. Ron Paul of Texas and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.  Romney won GOP primary contests in Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Delaware.

When Florida’s popular Tea Party Senator Marco Rubio announced his endorsement of Mitt Romney in March, it seemed all too clear that he was vying for a potential vice presidency. As the nation inches its way closer to the general election and reports indicate that Rubio may in fact be hand-picked by the Bilderberg group as Mitt Romney’s running mate, the possibility of a Romney/Rubio ticket increases dramatically, and raises once again the issue of how influential the Bilderberg group is in the presidential and political process.

Marvin “Chick” Heileson (left) is making his second attempt in 2012 to unseat seven-term incumbent Republican Rep. Mike Simpson in Idaho's second congressional district GOP primary.

Simpson voted for the original Patriot Act and its continued extension last year, despite the fact that it allows warrantless searches in flagrant violation of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. On foreign policy, Simpson's voting record demonstrates a belief that the President can ignore Congress and the U.S. Constitution and take the nation to war without the explicit consent of Congress. Simpson voted against the Kucinich amendment last year to require a vote of Congress before American servicemen's lives were put at risk in Libya. Simpson backed all major Republican-supported entitlement spending during his congressional tenure: 2001's No Child Left Behind Law, the 2003 Medicare prescription drug law, and the TARP bailout in 2008.

In a first-ever investigation of its type, the United Nations dispatched a professor to the United States on an official visit to research and report on the living conditions of America’s indigenous population. Professor James Anaya, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, arrived in the United States on Monday and will carry out his visit through May 4, traveling to Arizona, Alaska, Oregon, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and Washington, D.C.
