Gingrich Warns of Constitutional Crisis if Obama Isn't Stopped

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV Friday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Barack Obama’s decision not to fully enforce the Defense of Marriage law eventually could lead to a constitutional crisis, as he has directly violated his constitutional duties by arbitrarily suspending a law.

Gingrich even suggested that, if a “President Sarah Palin” had taken a similar action, there would have been immediate calls for her impeachment. Asked directly whether President Obama could be subject to articles of impeachment, Gingrich said, “Clearly it is a dereliction of duty and a violation of his constitutional oath and is something that cannot be allowed to stand.”

(A Gingrich spokesman stressed after the interview that we are not currently in a constitutional crisis, nor was Gingrich calling for the direct impeachment of the president. His statements were meant to illustrate the hypocrisy of the left and the mainstream media.)

The Lamestreams Strike Again — This Time in Madison

Some thoughts about the demonstrations in Madison and why liberals in the media are held in such low regard.

Let’s first take a trip down memory lane. Remember when journalists covered those tea party rallies and couldn’t help but notice that most of the people who showed up were white? They made it sound like an indictment. I was never quite sure why race was significant, but since the lamestreams brought it up, let me bring up a question: Since almost all the demonstrators in Wisconsin are white, why have the media, ever alert to skin color, not said a word about the crowd’s complexion?

Answer: Because they gratuitously bring race into the story if their real purpose is to make conservatives look bad. Telling us that most of the tea partiers were white was a way of saying they’re probably racists, without actually saying it.

Point number two: If one moron at a tea party carried a sign saying “Obama is Hitler” it was big news – proof that the tea partiers, generally, were hate-mongers. Cut to Madison, where there are lots of signs linking Governor Scott Walker to Hitler, Mussolini, Mubarak and al qaeda.
 According to the conservative media watchdog group, the Media Research center, on a Thursday morning, right after the demonstrations began, none of the network morning shows aired even one picture of any of those signs.

Since then, some of the placards have made it on the air. But I got the impression that the “mainstream” media weren’t nearly as passionate about showing – or commenting about – the many nasty signs that were aimed at a Republican governor as they were about showing the few ugly placards aimed at President Obama.

Point number three: NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams opened his newscast the other night with these words:
 “Good evening. From the Mideast to the American Midwest tonight, people are rising up. Citizens uprisings are changing the world.  … Tonight, we’re going to begin in Wisconsin. The state capitol has been taken over by the people.”
Get it?  The good guys in the Middle East were the courageous demonstrators. The good guys in the Middle West are the courageous demonstrators. The bad guys in the Middle East were the monsters running the government. The bad guys in the Middle West …

Get it now?


A pro-life group, Life Always, has displayed a huge billboard in the SoHo section of New York City that shows a picture of a young black girl with the inscription, "The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb." It has created a firestorm in New York City.

The organization responsible for the billboard has the strong backing of prominent African Americans; they chose to display their message during Black History Month. Rev. Stephen Broden, an African American who heads Life Always, says he wants to protest abortion as black genocide.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented on the critics of the billboard today:

Obama Administration Won't Enforce Defense of Marriage Act


buy microsoft office 2010 home and professional oem download Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the decision of the Obama administration not to defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act:

President Obama does not want to defend marriage anymore. He never really did, and here's the proof: 15 years ago this month, while running for the Illinois state Senate, Barack Obama said, "I favor legalizing same-sex marriage, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages."
But when Obama decided to run for the U.S. Senate in 2004, he knew that his support for homosexuals crashing the institution of marriage was too extreme, so he decided to endorse civil unions. He said at the time, "I think that marriage, in the minds of a lot of voters, has a religious connotation."

Taxes for Dummies - The tax system explained.

Suppose that every evening, 10 men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:
The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that's what they decided to do. The 10 men drank in the bar every evening and were quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner said "Since you are all such good customers, I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20." Drinks for the 10 men would now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected, they would still drink for free, but what about the other six men, the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his fair share?

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33, but if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer.
 So, using the principle of our tax system, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by a higher percentage based on how poor he was, and he proceeded to suggest the amounts that each should now pay.

Therefore, the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing.
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% saving).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28% saving).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% saving).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% saving).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% saving).

Each of the six was better off than before, and now half of the men continued to drink for free.

But, once outside the bar, the men began to compare their savings.

"I only got a dollar out of the $20 saving," declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man, "But he got $10!"
"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I only saved a buck too. It's unfair, he got 10 times more benefit than me!"
"That's true!" shouted the seventh man. "Why should he get $10 back, when I got only $2? The wealthy always win!"
"Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison, "we didn't get anything at all. This new tax system exploits the poor!"

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up!

The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had their beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists, labor unions and government officials, is how the tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes will naturally get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas, where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

Americans Say Reagan Is the Greatest U.S. President


Lincoln and Clinton next on the list; Washington fifth

PRINCETON, NJ -- Ahead of Presidents Day 2011, Americans are most likely to say Ronald Reagan was the nation's greatest president -- slightly ahead of Abraham Lincoln and Bill Clinton. Reagan, Lincoln, or John F. Kennedy has been at the top of this "greatest president" list each time this question has been asked in eight surveys over the last 12 years.

House Votes to Defund Planned Parenthood

The House has approved a Republican proposal to block federal aid for Planned Parenthood.

The 240-185 vote on Friday is a victory for anti-abortion forces led by Indiana GOP Rep. Mike Pence. He says taxpayer money should not go to groups that provide or promote abortion.

Democrats say Planned Parenthood provides contraception and other valuable family planning services, and that cutting off the money will make it hard for women to get such basic help.

Planned Parenthood provides services in hundreds of clinics around the country. Pence aides say the group reported receiving $363 million in federal money in its latest report.

The proposal is part of a bill that seeks to cut government spending this year.

The Democratic-run Senate has stronger abortion rights views than does the House, making it unlikely the House proposal will survive.

Planned Parenthood has came under heavy scrutiny recently. The group Live Action released a series of undercover videos this month showing Planned Parenthood workers advising a fake pimp on how to circumvent abortion laws and even how to run an underage sex ring.

House Votes to Defund 'ObamaCare'

The House passed the health care measure, 239-187, as an amendment to a bill that would keep the government lights on through the end of the fiscal year but also impose deep cuts on domestic programs.

Among the other actions the House took was to reject a controversial plan to end the Pentagon's sponsorship of a NASCAR team. Another measure, banning federal aid to Planned Parenthood, was passed.

The proposals were among more than 120 amendments remaining for the House to vote on as Republican leaders wind down a week of frenzied action on the spending bill.

Silencing Conservative Voices

Catholic League president Bill Donohue looks at attempts to silence conservative voices:

We recently learned that 74 Democrats have asked U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself if the health care bill comes before the high court. The reason? His wife supports the Tea Party and it is against the health care law. On Monday, disciplinary hearings will start against former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline. The reason? He should have recused himself from investigating George Tiller, the infamous late-term abortionist, because he holds pro-life views and was allegedly "obsessed" with Tiller.

If this is the standard for recusal, then the following need to recuse themselves from all cases involving abortion: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ninth Circuit Judge Stephen Reinhardt and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Ginsburg's obsession with abortion is uncontested: she co-founded the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU. 

Reinhardt is married to Ramona Ripston, who retired last year as the executive director of the Southern California ACLU; she has been obsessed with abortion rights for decades. 

Schneiderman's father is the former treasurer of NARAL, the most radical pro-abortion organization in the nation; this connection has already led the AG to recuse himself in a case involving Kelli Conlin, the former NARAL New York president. Conlin is accused of ripping off NARAL for meals, a summer rental in the Hamptons, clothes, and more than $100,000 on car services. Schneiderman should now pledge to recuse himself from all future cases involving abortion.

What's good for the goose, should be good for the gander.

Democrats: Emboldening America's Enemies & Terrifying Her Allies Since 1976

The Middle East is on fire again, and crazy Muslims with funny names aren't helping things -- Mahmoud, ElBaradei, al-Banna, Barack...

The major new development is that NOW liberals want to get rid of a dictator in the Middle East! Where were they when we were taking out the guy with the rape rooms?

Remember? The one who had gassed his own people, invaded his neighbors and was desperately seeking weapons of mass destruction? The guy who emerged from a spider hole looking like Charlie Sheen after a three-day bender?

Liberals couldn't have been less interested in removing Saddam Hussein and building a democracy in Iraq. So it's really adorable seeing them get all choked up about democracy now. Say, as long as liberals are all gung-ho about getting rid of out-of-touch, overbearing dictators, how about we start with Janet Napolitano?

Why did they want to keep Saddam Hussein in power again? Yes, that's right -- because he didn't have stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. Their big argument was that Saddam was five long years away from developing them.

By my calculations, that means as of March 2008, Israel would have been gone and Saddam would have been in total control of the Middle East.

Thanks, liberals!

Mark Levin Goes Nuclear Over Obama Destroying the Country


Video: Obama unveils surreal, catastrophic new budget

How bad is it? Try to guess who wrote the following:
[Senators] have to lead, because this president is too weak, too cautious, too beholden to politics over policy to lead. In this budget, in his refusal to do anything concrete to tackle the looming entitlement debt, in his failure to address the generational injustice, in his blithe indifference to the increasing danger of default, he has betrayed those of us who took him to be a serious president prepared to put the good of the country before his short term political interests. Like his State of the Union, this budget is good short term politics but such a massive pile of fiscal bullshit it makes it perfectly clear that Obama is kicking this vital issue down the road.

To all those under 30 who worked so hard to get this man elected, know this: he just screwed you over. He thinks you’re fools. Either the US will go into default because of Obama’s cowardice, or you will be paying far far more for far far less because this president has no courage when it counts. He let you down. On the critical issue of America’s fiscal crisis, he represents no hope and no change. Just the same old Washington politics he once promised to end.

That’s Andrew Sullivan, formerly Obama fan numero uno in the blogosphere, now coping for the second time in eight years with crushing disappointment from a president he ardently supported. Ed’s already written a bunch about the budget today so I won’t belabor it, but have a look at Andrew Stiles’s bullet-point list of the lowlights if you missed it. $26.3 trillion in new debt — repeat, new debt — alone over the next decade. Says Jake Tapper, summing things up in a single harrowing line, “At no point in the president’s 10-year projection would the U.S. government spend less than it’s taking in.”

WaPo, Boston Globe, Others Laughably Trumpet Obama Budget's 'Deep' Cuts to 'Rein in Deficits'

With the unveiling of Obama's 2012 budget, some newspapers around the country framed the $3.7 trillion proposal as a serious attempt to slash the federal deficit.

The February 15 editions of The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, the Daily Herald, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and the DC Express all couched the administration's massive budget as a fiscally responsible plan that makes "deep" and "big" cuts to "rein in deficits."

"Obama budget makes deep cuts, cautious trades," trumpeted the Post's A-1 headline, even though the federal government is expected to run a $1.1 trillion deficit for fiscal year 2012.

The Globe echoed the Post with an above-the-fold headline that could have been ripped out of a White House press release: "Deep cuts, chance of gains for state in Obama budget."

A hyperbolized Express headline read, "BURNED BY THE BUDGET." Express, a local DC paper owned by The Washington Post, attacked Obama's plan from the Left, lamenting that the proposed cuts would "spread the pain to just about every American."

Diane Sawyer rigs mass shooting experiment on 20/20

Do you think it's a good idea to be armed during a mass shooting? Diane Sawyer and the producers of ABC's 20/20 aren't so sure. In fact, on Friday, April 10, 2009, Sawyer spent a full hour trying desperately to prove how dangerous guns are and how ordinary people can't possibly defend themselves with firearms. The show's snarky title: "If I Only Had A Gun."

Slanted information filled the report, seemingly pulled from the press releases of the Brady Campaign, with not a single dissenting opinion. The most egregious slight of hand was a rigged experiment that struggled to show why having a gun would do you no good in a Virginia Tech style mass shooting.

The scenario played out in a classroom filled with ABC employees and police posing as students. At the far end sat the "victim," a young, wide-eyed man whose experience consisted primarily of shooting pop cans with an Airsoft gun in his back yard.

Remember the Alamo (in a PC and neutral way only)!

Glenn doesn’t hide his love for Texas, but he had a couple of issues with the state on radio this morning. His concern came with schools in Texas starting to teach Arabic and culture classes, as well as a shift in the way the history of the Alamo is being taugh.

“ Some middle school parents were shocked this week when they found out that two schools in their Mansfield, Texas school district will soon be requiring Arabic language and culture courses. How about we do American culture courses, what do you think? Could we do that?” Glenn asked.

“Forcing it in their schools. The foreign language assistance program grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education. As part of the $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Crosstimbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School,” Glenn read.

“Parents were caught off guard by the program, were surprised by the district telling them only in a meeting on Monday night between parents and superintendent. DOE has identified Arabic as a language of the future.”

“ The language of the future. And so they are going to learn about the Arabic language and its culture, similar to the way kids are now learning about Spanish and the Mexican culture,” Glenn said.

The Media's Selective Race Outrage

For over a year, the liberal media recited "the Tea Party is racist". They did so for hours on end without any clear proof. What do I mean by proof? Knowing this bunch as we do, had there been video of one clearly racist sign at a Tea Party, we'd be seeing that video as often as we did that of Rodney King. It would be their smoking gun. They could single-handedly discredit the Tea Party and possibly have salvaged the midterm elections for the left.

Alas, there was no proof, but when video released showed progressives desirous of putting the black Supreme Court justice back in his place (either in the fields or swinging from a tree), the networks didn't touch it.

Muslim Students in Britain Reportedly Taught to Chop Off Hands of Thieves, Hate Jews

Islamic schools across Britain are reportedly teaching their students how to cut off thieves’ hands and that Jews are plotting to take over the world.

One textbook given to 15-year-old students outlines physical punishments for violating Shariah law, according to BBC.

“For thieves their hands will be cut off for a first offence, and their foot for a subsequent offence,” the book says.

Diagrams are given to teenagers detailing where the amputations should be made, The Telegraph reports.

Investigative TV show “Panorama” on BBC One will reportedly present evidence Wednesday night that the textbooks were uncovered at a network of 40 private schools that teach a Saudi Arabian national curriculum.

Textbooks claiming Jews were transformed into pigs and apes have been distributed to up to 5,000 students at weekend schools across England, according to The Telegraph. Another book for 6-year-olds says that people who don’t believe in Islam will suffer “hellfire” in death.

The TV show also found that some private Muslim schools are promoting extremist sentiments on their websites.

Britain’s Education Secretary Michael Gove said such sentiments would not be tolerated. But researchers warn the education system is “not equipped” to handle threats from extremist organizations. The country’s new “free schools” – run by parents, teachers and charities – can be used to indoctrinate students, according to Policy Exchange, a conservative think tank based in London.

BBC says it has uncovered evidence that links the schools to the Saudi embassy, but the embassy vehemently denies any connection.

Islam & socialism

Discrimination against Muslims in Britain has increased markedly over the last few years. The horrendous, inhuman attack in Beslan, which outraged the world’s population including the vast majority of Muslims, will undoubtedly increase anti-Muslim prejudice. HANNAH SELL takes a socialist approach to how Islamaphobia can be fought, and draws out lessons from the policies of the Bolsheviks in the aftermath of the Russian revolution.

BETWEEN ONE-AND-A HALF and two million Muslim people live in Britain today. In London alone they come from 50 ethnic backgrounds. As a whole, Muslims are one of the poorest sections of British society. One in seven of economically active Muslims are unemployed, compared with one in 20 for the wider population. The two biggest Muslim communities in Britain, those originating in Pakistan and Bangladesh, are particularly impoverished. For example, in 1999, 28% of white families lived below the poverty line compared with 41% of Afro-Caribbean and 84% of Bangladeshi families.

The history of Muslims in Britain has been one of poverty and discrimination. Historically, however, the discrimination against Muslims in Britain has been one of many facets of the racism of capitalist society. In different forms, racism has been an intrinsic part of capitalism since its inception. Over the last decade, and particularly since the horror of 11 September 2001, there is no doubt that anti-Muslim prejudice – Islamaphobia – has risen dramatically. While other forms of racism remain, Muslim people face the sharpest manifestation of discrimination in Britain today. The government sheds crocodile tears at the increase in racism against Muslims and those who people ‘perceive’ to be Muslims. Yet it is the government’s policies that have resulted in a 41% increase in ‘stop and search’ against Asians by the Metropolitan police. More fundamentally, the government’s participation in brutal wars of subjugation against Afghanistan and Iraq – both majority Muslim countries – with all the accompanying propaganda denigrating the peoples of those countries, has inevitably increased Islamaphobia.

The home secretary, David Blunkett, has suggested that ethnic minorities have to make greater efforts to ‘integrate’ into British society, effectively blaming Muslim and other communities for the increase in racism. In reality, the converse is true. The more hostile society is towards them, the more ethnic and religious minorities will identify solely with their own communities. For example, it is true that the strength of many Muslims’ identification with their religion and culture has increased markedly. According to a recent survey, 74% of British Muslims considered that their religion had a very important influence on their daily lives – compared to 43% of Hindus and 46% of Sikhs. While there are many reasons for this, there is no doubt that the increased prejudice against Islam has led many young Muslims to defend their religion by increasing their identification with it.

However, it is not true that young Muslims in Britain identify only, or primarily, with the country from which they or, more often, their parents or grandparents came. Two thirds of all Muslims in Britain are under 25. Having been brought up in Britain, most have a dual identity, both part of Britain and alienated from it. These young people have grown up in a society where they feel under constant threat of arrest because of their colour and religion. They face increased discrimination in education and the workplace. They have been enraged by the government’s imperialist warmongering. However, only a tiny minority have drawn the entirely mistaken conclusion that the barbaric mass terrorism of reactionary Islamic organisations like al-Qa’ida offers a way forward. Contrary to tabloid propaganda, 73% of British Muslims are strongly opposed to terrorist attacks. At the same time, the potential for a united movement involving Muslim people is shown by the hundreds of thousands of Muslims who took part in the anti-war movement, alongside other sections of the population, in the biggest demonstrations ever in Britain.

Palin: Obama Doesn't Have the 'Spine' to Tell the Truth About the Muslim Brotherhood

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," February 9, 2011. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: We begin tonight with brand new indications of President Barack Obama's re-election chances in 2012 are dwindling. Now, according to a CNN poll, a majority of Americans expect the president to lose his reelection bid next November. Only 46 percent of those polls believe he will win a second term. Now, those dismal numbers could be the result of growing opposition to the administration's handling of the economy. On the federal budget deficit, the president's approval rating has dropped to an all new low only 27 percent approve of his handling of this monstrous deficit, while 68 percent now disapprove.

Now, since November, that number has been clearly trending in the wrong direction for the White House. And guess what else could soon fire up American taxpayers? A massive federal bailout to help states pay for unemployment insurance. Now, under the administration plans, states that borrowed billions from Uncle Sam to pay for unemployment will not have to pay interest for two years. However, and this is a big however, to pay for the short term suspension of interest rates, it will be businesses that will be hit in the long term, according to the "Washington Post," "Starting in 2014, Obama would target companies for sharply higher payroll taxes to help states replenish their depleted unemployment funds and repay their debts to Washington." So, we have a growing deficit and tax hikes on the horizon. So, how is this all likely to play out for the president in the 2012 in that race?

Here with reaction, and analysis, former Alaska governor, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin. You know, governor, I don't get it, the White House doesn't get it. Again, in two years we have the issue of raising taxes on small business. Now they are going to tax small business here. You know, what part of this is not going to help the economy do you think they don't get?

SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Well, that is why those poll numbers, they're reflective of the public's perception of what's really going on here. Yes, the Obama policies really lack any kind of soundness when you consider that just grow in more government and now, an idea of bailing out states, that kind is going to be the answer to these problems. And no, those poll numbers reflect that Americans at this point are saying, enough is enough. You know, this ain't our first rodeo. After two years of failed leftist policies, we are not believing that growing more government and then taxing businesses and then taxing the people and that will hit in about 2014, that that's the answer to this problem.

Why the love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood?

Most people had a great weekend. They got to spend time with their friends and family. They got to watch the Super Bowl, maybe even see Christina Aguilera (poorly) sing the National Anthem. But Glenn made sure to bring everyone back to reality – and potentially depression – with his opening monologue on Monday’s radio show.

What had Glenn so worried? He had been talking all last week about the idea of “The enemy of my enemy is not my friend”, meaning that just because you have a common enemy with someone does not mean you should be in alliance with that person. Glenn has used the phrase to criticize the U.S. backing Mubarak in Egypt over some of the other radical options like the Muslim Brotherhood, and today he used the phrase to discuss some of the really bad people and groups aligning over the Middle East crisis.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Meaning, if they want to destroy it and I want to destroy it, or in our case we’re in bed with Egypt. With Mubarak. He is a brutal, bad man. But the enemy of my enemy is my friend. He would stand up for Israel, he would hold back the people like the Muslim Brotherhood and so we made him our friend. He’s not our friend,” Glenn said.

“And we have allowed evil into our own camp. We have said we stood for truth, justice, and the American way. Well, what is the American way? The American way apparently is to get into bed with brutal dictators. That’s not the American way. It never has been.”

But now, America is OK with the Muslim Brotherhood getting involved with Egyptian politics.

“And now the Muslim Brotherhood. Now we’re willing to get into bed with the Muslim Brotherhood because, well, you’ve got to — no, you don’t! Do we have no values? Yes, we do. And if we don’t discover them soon, we’re in trouble.”

“Ahmadinejad, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea. A force for good or evil?”

“If we don’t stand together, evil will cover this planet and we will go into a very long period of darkness. But we better find the light soon, and we better stop playing the games of politics. Because this ain’t about who’s going to win the next election,” Glenn said.


Left attempting to hijack Reagan’s legacy?

When did Ronald Reagan become a liberal icon? President Obama is reading all about him and the media is trying to say that right is trying to co-opt Reagan as an icon. Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

“Listen to Willie L. Brown, former mayor of San Francisco comparing [Obama] to Reagan,” Pat said.

“In reality Barack Obama has always been in his political life an admirer of Ronald Reagan. Many of the qualities that he exhibits are reflective of what Ronald Reagan was really all about. He has not been able to demonstrate those in the first few months of his administration simply because he had such an awesome majority in the Senate and an awesome majority in the House. And this majority was dominated by the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party. Far beyond what Obama really is. Obama is more like Reagan than he is like anyone else,” Brown said.

“Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me! This is insane. This is insane!” Glenn exclaimed.

“Let me tell you something. Ronald Reagan didn’t compromise his values. You can compromise on bills. Not your values. Period. And you know what? You want to say that Barack Obama is like that? Okay, I’ll give you that. He has not once compromised his values. He’s jammed it down your throat. Now, that’s not what Ronald Reagan did. But they don’t compromise. Ronald Reagan was a conservative. Period. He didn’t compromise. He was a staunch anti-communist! He was staunch anti-union!” Glenn said.

The left knows no shame - now they are openly trying to make the case that Barack Obama is more like President Ronald Reagan than anyone else. As Pat Gray put it on radio, that's an insult to the intelligence of every single American - left, right, independent.


Muslim Brotherhood’s Goals Uncovered: Global Islamic Conquest & Caliphate

As anti-government protests continue brewing in Egypt, opposition groups such as the banned Muslim Brotherhood are gaining steam and popularity among disillusioned Egyptians bent on ousting President Hosni Mubarak from office. But excerpts of a 1995 book written by the Muslim Brotherhood‘s fifth leader and translated by Palestinian Media Watch are lending a disturbing look at the group’s views and stated mission.

“Jihad is the Way” is the last of a five-volume work, “The Laws of Da’wa,” written by Mustafa Mashhur, the reported leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt from 1996 until 2002. The Jerusalem Post reports that excerpts from the book detail the Brotherhood’s objectives, including the “global conquest of Islam” and “reestablishing the Islamic Caliphate, the “public and private duties of jihad” and the “struggles Muslims must wage against Israel.”
“The Islamic ummah,” [the book] says, referring to the supranational community of Muslims, “can regain its power and be liberated and assume its rightful position which was intended by Allah, as the most exalted nation among men, as the leaders of humanity.”
Elsewhere, it exhorts Muslims, “Know your status, and believe firmly that you are the masters of the world, even if your enemies desire your degradation.”
The book’s translation was compiled by Palestinian Media Watch founder Itamar Marcus and analyst Nan Jacques Zilberdik.  Marcus spoke to the post about what he sees as the danger of downplaying the Brotherhood’s ideology and potential growing role in the political process.
According to Marcus, the Brotherhood differs from international terror groups like al-Qaeda only in tactics, not goals.

Militants Kill Christian Teenagers For Reading Bible, Missionary Says

NEW DELHI, INDIA.  Suspected Islamic militants have killed two Christian teenagers who were reading the Bible in the disputed Kashmir valley, divided between India and Muslim Pakistan, BosNewsLife established Tuesday, February 8.

The victims were identified as Arifa, 17, and Akthar, 19, the daughters of Gulam Nabi Dar, said local missionary Mercy Ciniraj, who knew them well. "The [murdered] girls were believers and used to read the Bible through underground ministries."

She told BosNewsLife that "the girls were shot dead" last Monday, January 31, in the Baramulla area in Indian-controlled northern Kashmir, bordering Pakistan.

They were "brutally murdered" by at least three fighters of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan based Islamic militant "terrorist" group, she explained. Local police reportedly said in statements that they found two bodies near their home and that militants were to blame.

Obama's "tough budget cuts" in pictures.

President Obama's 2012 budget will be roughly $3,800,000 million ($3.8 trillion).

The anticipated 2012 budget deficit will be $1,500,000 million ($1.5 trillion). This means we are borrowing that amount from our children to fund all of the Democrats' Utopian spending programs.

Finally, the president has proposed "tough budget cuts" that total $775 million. No, that's not a joke.

Let's illustrate the magnitude of Obama's cuts.

Obama's cuts aren't even visible in this chart. Let's zoom in.

Blowing it up about ten times allows us to see a tiny little sliver: those are the cuts.

Blowing the chart up a further ten times still barely exposes Obama's proposed cuts.

President Obama's budget director Jack Lew in a Sunday opinion piece outlined some off the "tough choices" Obama is willing to make to cut spending in his 2012 budget request due out on Feb. 14... The cuts are relatively small, however, in the larger scheme of things. In total, the $775 million in detailed cuts fall far short of demands by congressional Republicans and will do little toward tackling the deficit, which is estimated to be $1.5 trillion this year by the Congressional Budget Office...

...Lew said that the Valentine's Day budget will proposed cutting in half community service block grants to grassroots groups in poor communities... He said "this cut is not easy for" Obama.

Not easy.

Our country's going bankrupt and he can't find anything to cut.

These Democrats are so far off the reservation that there's really no hope left for them as a political party. You need to expose this irresponsible President and his sycophants to everyone you know. We must begin laying the groundwork for 2012.

If we are to salvage this Republic, we must eradicate every Democrat -- for there are no moderate Democrats left -- at the ballot box in 2012. At every level of government. Because this degree of dishonesty and wanton fiscal destruction must be rewarded with political obliteration.

CNN Poll: Majority Think Obama Will Lose in 2012…

Tingles hardest hit.
(National Journal)More than half of registered voters believe President Obama will lose a bid for a second term, even as more Americans say they approve of his job performance than at any time in more than a year.
A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey, released Tuesday, shows 51 percent of registered voters, and the same percentage of adult Americans, believe Obama will lose if he runs for re-election. 46 percent say he would win.

And more voters say, at the moment, they will vote against Obama. Fully 51 percent say they definitely or probably will not vote for Obama, while 47 percent say they’re predisposed to vote for him. Independent voters would vote against Obama by a 44 percent to 53 percent margin, while he would win moderates by a much larger 55 percent to 45 percent margin.

Americans Favor Health Law Repeal by Double-Digit Margin, Poll Shows

Nearly a year after the health care law was passed, most voters still favor repealing the overhaul -- by a double-digit margin, according to a new poll. 

A Rasmussen Reports poll released Monday reveals most voters believe the law will increase the cost of health care, increase the federal deficit and erode the quality of care. Though the Obama administration stepped up its public defense of the law in advance of an unsuccessful repeal vote in the Senate, the numbers suggest many Americans are not accepting the administration's arguments. 

The study found 58 percent of likely voters favor repeal to some degree, with 44 percent strongly supporting it. Thirty-seven percent oppose repeal, with 26 percent strongly opposing it. 

The findings are similar to those in earlier Rasmussen surveys. In the latest poll, 56 percent said health care costs will go up under the law; 52 percent said quality will go down; and 58 percent said the law will increase the federal deficit -- something the Congressional Budget Office says is not the case. 

Voters, however, don't have a chance to affect the health care debate until 2012. And Republicans are regrouping after their repeal bill passed the House but failed in the Senate last week. Instead, the battle plays out in the courts, as federal judges issue conflicting rulings that are almost certain to come before the Supreme Court

The Four Questions Every Liberal Must Be Asked

Ever notice how liberals like to spend money...particularly other people's money?

If you've ever found yourself engaged in debate with a liberal in an attempt to convince him that government spending is out of control, you know it's often an exercise in frustration.  This is especially true when your liberal invokes his holier-than-thou conviction that the supposed good he is intent on imposing upon the world -- both domestically and internationally -- must trump any financial considerations you may introduce into the debate.

Well, fret no more.  Here's a surefire formula to stop any liberal dead in his tracks: a series of four questions that every liberal must be asked.  It involves a few mathematical exercises, the effects of which are guaranteed to negate whatever Keynesian psycho-babble may have infected a liberal's neuronal functioning.  I have found this bottom-line number-crunching to be the best form of deprogramming for whatever Kool-Aid the Obamanomics crowd has been ingesting.

The Four Questions
Here's how it works.  Take out a sheet of lined paper (legal yellow pad, preferably) and a pen.  Number the top four lines of the page 1 through 4 down the left-hand side.  Hand the page to your liberal and ask him if he would kindly indulge you: would he answer the following four questions?  Then proceed to ask them, in order.  Let him write down each answer before proceeding to the next question.

The four questions are:
   1. What is total spending of the federal budget?
   2. What is the federal deficit?
   3. What is the national debt?
   4. What was the most recent interest payment on the national debt?

You'll be surprised at the answers.  The first impression you'll get is that most won't know the difference between "deficit" and "national debt."  You see, liberals are all for spending your money, but they don't have a clue how much of it is being spent nor how much debt they're getting us into in order to do that spending.  You'll also find that the answer to question #1 ranges from a low of several hundred billion to a trillion; no one, it seems, is able to get the answer to within $300-$400 billion.

Senate Rejects GOP Effort to Repeal Obamacare...See How Your Senator Voted

Senate Democrats held together to beat back Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) attempt to repeal the health care overhaul law, Roll Call reports.

However, the party-line 47 to 51 vote made good on McConnell's vow to force a vote on the measure.

The Hill: "Republicans have vowed to carry the fight forward, saying they will seek to de-fund the law as it is implemented. The GOP also has promised Wednesday's repeal vote will not be the last in this Congress."

Coulter on Health Care

The Ellen DeGeneres Interview That Will Haunt President Obama

Long before his administration went into federal court to fight 27 states that are now challenging the constitutionality of the federal government forcing people to buy health insurance, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama told Ellen DeGeneres that—unlike his opponent Hillary Clinton—he opposed forcing the uninsured to buy health insurance, saying that it would be like forcing the homeless to buy homes.

“Both of us want to provide health care to all Americans. There’s a slight difference, and her plan is a good one. But, she mandates that everybody buy health care. She’d have the government force every individual to buy insurance and I don’t have such a mandate because I don’t think the problem is that people don’t want health insurance, it’s that they can’t afford it,” Obama said in a Feb. 28, 2008 appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' television show. “So, I focus more on lowering costs. This is a modest difference. But, it’s one that she’s tried to elevate, arguing that because I don’t force people to buy health care that I’m not insuring everybody. Well, if things were that easy, I could mandate everybody to buy a house, and that would solve the problem of homelessness. It doesn’t."
