Justice Alito Was Right
By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano  - FOXNews.com 
“Despite claims made by the president, last week’s Supreme Court opinion on campaign finance specifically excludes foreign nationals and foreign-owned corporations from its ruling.”

Obama’s loose grip on reality
The state of the union isn’t what he pretends
President Obama’s response to the catastrophic political failures of his freshman year in office is to fight harder for more of the same. Presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett made the point explicitly on Sunday, asserting that the White House is “not hitting a reset button at all.” That reflects the kind of political savvy that handed the safest Democratic Senate seat in America to a Republican.
Mr. Obama seems unaware that he is part of the problem. The president credited Scott Brown’s historic Senate-race victory in Massachusetts last week to the same voter frustration that swept him into office in 2008. The glitch in that worldview is that Mr. Brown ran explicitly against the Obama agenda.
Mr. Obama’s response to comparisons to 1994, when Democrats lost control of both the House and Senate, is that “the big difference here and in ’94 was you’ve got me.” Mr. Obama certainly is making a big difference, but none that should give comfort to his party.

A little reality check on the so-called “spending freeze”
Is this *really* a spending freeze? And does it even matter?

POLITICAL LABELS
The Libertarian Vote in the Age of Obama
Libertarian — or fiscally conservative, socially liberal — voters are often torn between their aversions to the Republicans’ social conservatism and the Democrats’ fiscal irresponsibility. Yet libertarians rarely factor into pundits’ and pollsters’ analyses….
Younger libertarians were more supportive of Obama. Pro-life libertarians are more Republican than pro-choice libertarians.
Few of the voters we describe as libertarian identify themselves as such….

Liberalism Is Dead
by James Lewis
Even Massachusetts may be catching on that so-called liberals don’t deserve that name any more. Barney Frank is not a liberal, but a demagogue and corruptocrat with truly awesome, dictatorial arrogance. That is because he has a safe seat in Boston. Chris Dodd is not a liberal, but said to be one of the most corrupt members of the US Senate. Harry Reid is a demagogue and a Machiavellian. Nancy Pelosi is a Mafia moll. We should therefore stop associating the word `liberal` with such creatures. Liberalism is dead; anyone using that word is lying or living in the long-ago past. What we see now from the Democrats may be Applied Marxism, Hard Leftism, Gangster Leftism or maybe the Machine Politics of the Left.

ISLAM
Who are the Palestinians and who is occupying what?

 By David Rushton   Sunday, January 24, 2010
Muslims constantly scream and whine about Israel occupying Muslim lands in Israel. Newspapers and T.V. newscasts talk about Judea and Samaria being “occupied” by Israel. The U.S. State Department and other government entities refer to parts of Israel as “Israeli Settlements.” So the question must be, “Is Israel occupying part of Palestine or are the Muslims occupying part of Israel”?

The Islam Tax
By Bill Warner
It turns out that we pay an enormous amount of money for our life with Islam. Let’s look at a list of expenses that we bear because of Islamic ideology. If there were no Islam we would not have the Transportation Security Administration, Homeland Security, the Iraq war, the Afghanistan war, all that so-called terrorist work by the FBI, rebuilding the World Trade Center and who knows what else. The Iraq war has cost about $700 billion, the Afghan war has cost about $250 billion and all of the government agencies cost in the neighborhood of tens of billions per year. We are up to at least a TRILLION dollars of our Islam tax. That little $10 Security Fee may seem small, but that is for every round trip ticket sold in the US. What will the trial in NYC for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed cost? Millions of dollars. And the hits just keep coming.
Another part of the Islam tax is the jizyah (the dhimmi tax) that we call foreign aide. We pay various Islamic governments, including Egypt, Pakistan, the so-called Palestinians and others. Why do we pay the jizyah? We want to be friends (Never mind the 12 verses in the Koran that say that Muslims are never the friends of kafirs, unbelievers).

ABORTION
When Is a Person Not a Person?

 By Barry Napier
Socialists have the most incredible lack of intellectual ability, and they lack the most basic tenets of morality. Why is this? It is because their lives are predicated on political philosophy rather than on facts and truth. That is how the Kenyan, Obama, came to be the Great Pretender in the White House. In essence, he spoke well, but didn’t have an ounce of truth about him. Yet, people voted for him, to the astonishment of more rigorous minds.
The current position on the killing of babies is yet another example of this lack of moral and intellectual ability, not just on the part of those who kill, but also those inept persons who judge. It is not that they are unintelligent. They have intelligence sufficient to judge properly. What they lack is the intellectual attitude and moral uprightness to tackle the situation.

None Dare Call it Genocide
Dennis Howard told EWTN television network on the day of the March for Life in Washington, D.C. that legalized abortion is the equivalent of 260 Haiti disasters on American soil.
