Can you name any new drugs or medical devices that are invented in France? Nearly all the world’s innovation comes from the relatively profit-driven American system. If we relied on government healthcare, the world would still be getting 1950’s quality care.

Are Evil Profiteers Actually Profiting? – Glenn Beck – video
Obama’s latest scapegoat
Seems like every other day the President has someone else to blame, some villain or evil entity that’s ruining American lives and thus causing the government to run our healthcare industry. This time it’s those evil health insurance companies, you know them, those evil greedy profiteers. But, are they really reaping windfall profits?

Obama Wants to Socialize “The Best Possible HealthCare”
 By News on the Net  Wednesday, February 24, 2010
Gary Bauer   AmericanValues.org
If you’re a leading Canadian politician in need of heart surgery, where do you go for the best healthcare? Quebec? No. Montreal? Wrong again. WhenNewfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams was told he needed immediate surgery or risk heart failure, he went to the Mount Sinai MedicalCenter in Miami, Florida.

Williams knew his decision would be controversial in Canada, but he is not backing down. He told reporters yesterday, “This was my heart, my choice and my health. I did not sign away my right to get the best possible health care for myself when I entered politics.”
Remember that, friends, as Obama and congressional liberals try to force socialized medicine on us. When politicians north of the border are in need of the best possible healthcare, they don’t turn to their own socialized system, they come to America. If Obama and the Left succeed, where will we go?

CLIMATE CHANGE
Climategate Meets the Law: Senator Inhofe to Ask for DOJ Investigation

by Charlie Martin      February 23, 2010
Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) today asked the Obama administration to investigate what he called “the greatest scientific scandal of our generation…..”
Senator Inhofe also called for former Vice President Al Gore to be called back to the Senate to testify.
“In [Gore's] science fiction movie, every assertion has been rebutted,” Inhofe said. He believes Vice President Gore should defend himself and his movie before Congress.

Climategate: The World’s Biggest Story, Everywhere but Here

Texas Goes to Court
“Texas and several national industry groups on Tuesday filed separate petitions in federal court challenging the government’s authority to regulate U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
“Texas, which leads U.S. states in carbon dioxide emissions due to its heavy concentration of oil refining and other industries, will see a major impact if U.S. mandatory emissions reductions take effect.
“The EPA’s misguided plan paints a big target on the backs of Texas agriculture and energy producers and the hundreds of thousands of Texans they employ,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry said.

ISLAM
Obama assisting in imposing Islamic Sharia law, prohibiting criticism of Islam
 By Doug Hagmann
Barack Hussein Obama, catering to both Muslim and globalist agendas, is exposing his preference to Islamic and globalist agendas and placing yet another nail in America’s coffin by appointing Rashad HUSSAIN as special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference. To understand the extreme significance of this appointment, it is vital for Americans to understand the composition and objectives of the OIC, its global influence and potential impact on the U.S., and also be fully aware of the background of Rashad HUSSAIN.

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is the world’s largest Islamic entity with a membership of 57 Muslim nations and a permanent delegation to the United Nations. Aside from the United Nations, it is the largest international entity of any type.  It was formed on September 25, 1969 by the Islamic heads of state in Rabat, Morocco as an affront to Israel, with its primary objective to regain complete Muslim control and Islamic religious dominance over Jerusalem. It is now based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The Muslim students made a huge mistake at UC Irvine on February 8th, 2010 and the administration is going to need to figure out how they intend to secure free speech at UC Irvine.
All eyes are on UC Irvine right now. This is an issue for campuses around the world.

IMMIGRATION
The Jackpot Anchor Baby: Transforming America

by Frosty Wooldridge
As a teacher, I watched the destruction of American classrooms in Denver, LA, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas and Miami. With over 50 different languages in major city schools, millions of fatherless children and no appreciation for or understanding of American educational standards and culture, those anchor babies slowly and today more speedily transform America into another country inside our own country……

Are Conservative Leaders Avoiding Illegal Alien Issues?
 By Jerry McConnell
Within this past week I have encountered incidents that have put questions in my mind about the seeming lack of gusto among the “leaders” of the conservative movement in this country to take on the illegal aliens/immigration/amnesty problem.

CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES
Tea Party Movement Untamed

By Lloyd Marcus              February 17, 2010
The Tea Party movement has millions of patriots. It is impossible to control them. Nor do I want to. Amidst the so-called tea party chaos, we stopped government-controlled health care, elected Scott Brown, and politicians deaf to the will of the people are running scared….

I also love the charge that the Republicans are hijacking the movement. If the Republicans are finally listening to the people and embracing our issues — which are fiscal responsibility, less government intrusion, and a strong national defense — then I say, Hallelujah! But listen up, Republicans: You cannot just talk the talk. You must walk the walk!…

There is one seduction I strongly advise against, a third party. It would ensure liberals winning elections. However, if the republicans select a liberal turkey to run, we tea party patriots must select a conservative eagle to run against both party’s liberals. Now, that’s the power of we the people….

Government — Not God or Parents
By Dennis Prager February 23, 2010
One of the major differences between the Right and the Left concerns the question of authority: To whom do we owe obedience and who is the ultimate moral authority?

For the Right, the primary moral authority is God (or, for secular conservatives, Judaeo-Christian values), followed by parents. Of course, government must also play a role, but it is ultimately accountable to God, and it should do nothing to undermine parental authority.

For the Left, the state and its government are the supreme authorities, while parental and divine authority are seen as impediments to state authority.
