Rush Limbaugh: Obama’s Infanticide Vote

“…First up from the Huffing and Puffington Post: “Newt Gingrich Calls Obama An ‘Extremist’ Who Supported ‘Infanticide’ At GOP Debate.” Do you realize — I have looked at this — do you realize how many Democrats do not know this about Obama? Do you realize how many people in the media do not know this about Obama? It’s not that the media knew about it and didn’t report it. They didn’t know. They didn’t know that as a state Senator Obama sponsored a bill, and he did more than sponsor it. This is the one time he invested every bit of his power as a state legislator to allow doctors to finish the job if they botch the abortion and the baby is born live. Obama sponsored and promoted that legislation. That’s why Newt called it infanticide…”

Andrew McCarthy, NRO: We Have Lost Our Minds

“The New York Times reports that President Obama has sent a formal letter of apology to Afghanistan’s ingrate president, Hamid Karzai, for the burning of Korans at a U.S. military base. The only upside of the apology is that it appears (based on the Times account) to be couched as coming personally from our blindly Islamophilic president — “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident. . . . I extend to you and the Afghani people my sincere apologies.” It is not couched as an apology from the American people, whose frame of mind will be outrage, not contrition, as the facts become more widely known.

“The facts are that the Korans were seized at a jail because jihadists imprisoned there were using them not for prayer but to communicate incendiary messages. The soldiers dispatched to burn refuse from the jail were not the officials who had seized the books, had no idea they were burning Korans, and tried desperately to retrieve the books when the situation was brought to their attention.

“Of course, these facts may not become widely known, because no one is supposed to mention the main significance of what has happened here. First, as usual, Muslims — not al-Qaeda terrorists, but ordinary, mainstream Muslims — are rioting and murdering over the burning (indeed, the inadvertent burning) of a book. Yes, it’s the Koran, but it’s a book all the same — and one that, moderate Muslims never tire of telling us, doesn’t really mean everything it says anyhow…”

Norman Davies, WSJ: Why Europe Crashes

Some of the physics people talk about an oscillation between chaos, the Matthew Effect, winner-take-all, and collapse. These stages are found in Bose-Einstein condensates and the same equations fit human populations. Toynbee reached similar conclusions without obscure numbers. Meanwhile, Davies is a cracker-jack historian and everyone should know about him.

“His latest book, Vanished Kingdoms, is a bracing tour of Europe’s cemetery of dead nation-states, fallen empires and collapsed duchies.

The book was published last month in the U.S. but is already in its sixth printing in the U.K., where it has sold like gangbusters…”

“People don’t see very often their death coming. . . . Look at the French Revolution: The king of France was thinking in the 1780s, ‘We’re doing rather better than my father in the 1770s.’” Few saw the end of the Soviet Union coming, either.

“That’s the key, he says, to coming to terms with the euro zone’s mess. He borrows a metaphor from skiing. ‘It’s like an avalanche, where you’ve got a huge frozen snowfield, which on the surface looks absolutely ideal. . . . All the changes in the ice field come from the sun shining on them, and the water melts underneath. But you can’t actually see it. And you equally can’t see which part of the snowfield is going to move first.’

“He adds: ‘But it happens in a second. Before the avalanche, the sun shines, it looks beautiful, and there’s a sound like a gunshot, where the ice cracks. And the whole damn lot falls into the valley.’”

Lincoln Radio Journal…Why PA Crashes..

State Rep. Tim Krieger of Westmoreland County …. Constitutional amendment to limit state spending…may take several years and the silence of people who expect to lose out.

Dr. Jake Haulk and Eric Montardi (Allegheny Institute) … property taxes … fair market value assessments required by PA constitution but are probably not achievable…there is no clear measure of “fair market value.” Option: Eliminate property taxes…but that idea makes people stammer.

Col. Frank Ryan … Our students row in a galley…tuition costs escalate, student loans create lifelong debt, and our kids make social security payments  on which they won’t collect. PA’s pension obligations have climbed from $700,000 to over a billion dollars and will reach four billion dollars in a few years…

Jonathan Lemire, NY Daily News: Win or lose: Michigan’s primary on Tuesday could destroy Romney’s campaign.

“Mitt Romney struggles to turn the upcoming Michigan primary into a positive step for his presidential bid. Catering to Michigan voters could leave him at odds with the rest of the nation.
“A narrow victory, which the polls now suggest, would open Romney to a slew of questions about why he had such trouble banking a win on his home turf.

And even if he prevails in a rout, his positions and recent rhetoric that appeal to right-wing Michigan voters — particularly on the auto industry bailout — may cost him the swing state (sic) in November.

“There’s no way for him not to lose here,” said Michael Heaney, political science professor at the University of Michigan.

“His campaign created this by touting Michigan as his home state,” said Heaney, “even though he has lived in Massachusetts for decades.”

Michael Barone, NRO: Mitt & Rick; Belmont & Fishtown (and Demographics)

This also applies to the cheering section for each candidate…

“…Mitt Romney is literally from Belmont, where he raised his family in a large house and now has a condominium, and where he helped build a large Mormon temple visible as you drive by on Route 2. He grew up in another Belmont, Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

“Rick Santorum, in contrast, describes himself as the grandson of an immigrant coal miner, a product of Fishtown. He often tells of getting his political start winning two House races in the steel mill suburbs of Pittsburgh.

“When you look at where these two candidates are drawing their strongest support, you see a similar contrast.

“Romney in 2008 and this year has run consistently strongest in the high-income, high-education Belmonts. Santorum has run strongest in areas with more downscale Republican voters.

“Both trends are politically problematic. It is not attractive for Republicans (though it can be for Democrats) to advertise a candidate’s appeal to affluent voters.

“But it’s also true that there just aren’t so many voters in Fishtown anymore; voter turnout there is way down. Pittsburgh is our one major metro area with more deaths than births. There aren’t as many neighborhoods filled with devout Catholics with large families as there were 50 years ago.

“Republicans are choosing between a candidate from a Belmont that’s doing just fine and one who claims ties with a Fishtown that isn’t what it used to be. Not an ideal choice. “

Ken Murray, WSJ: Why Doctors Die Differently

“…It’s not something that we like to talk about, but doctors die, too. What’s unusual about them is not how much treatment they get compared with most Americans, but how little. They know exactly what is going to happen, they know the choices, and they generally have access to any sort of medical care that they could want. But they tend to go serenely and gently…”

Byron York, Washington Examiner: Rick, Mitt, & Choice

“TROY, Mich. — At a conservative summit just days before the critical Michigan primary, Mitt Romney blasted rival Rick Santorum for endorsing pro-choice Republican (and fellow Pennsylvanian) Arlen Specter for president in 1996.

“He supported Arlen Specter, by the way, in 1996, when Arlen Specter was running for president,” Romney told the crowd at an Americans for Prosperity meeting here in Troy. “Arlen Specter — the only pro-choice candidate we’ve seen in that race. There were other conservatives running, like Bob Dole. He didn’t support them. He supported the pro-choice candidate, Arlen Specter.”

Romney’s criticism has particularly rankled Santorum because just two years before that 1996 race, Romney himself ran as a pro-choice candidate for senator from Massachusetts. “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country,” Romney said in that 1994 campaign. “I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years that we should sustain and support it.”

The next time Romney ran for public office, in the 2002 Massachusetts governor’s race, he again ran as a pro-choice candidate..”.

Victor Davis Hanson, PJM: High Tech Nothing

Evolutionist and our newest agnostic, Richard Dawkins, would approve…

“..in the last two weeks I heard and read some strange things about how technological changes have transformed our very politics and way of life. Here is a sample: the ubiquity of ultrasound scans has turned public opinion against abortion; drones have revolutionized our ability to conduct asymmetrical wars; cell-phone cameras have outraged the world about Bashar al-Assad’s butchery in Syria in a way that was not true during the news blackout over Hafez al-Assad’s earlier liquidation of Hama; social networking and the Internet have created new sorts of communities and networks; and the Internet has kept politicians honest, since now we have instant recall of everything they’ve said or written.

“All are true to an extent — but not to the extent that we think. Let me explain.”

Michael Ledeen, WSJ: Santorum Was Right about Iran

Thanks Ted,

“…His opposition to tyranny abroad has been a constant in his political career. Even in the final days of his losing 2006 re-election campaign, Mr. Santorum never stopped calling for action against Iran and Syria. Apparently, Pennsylvanians weren’t impressed by his Iran Freedom and Support Act, enacted in 2006, which imposed sanctions on the regime and authorized $100 million annually for the democratic opposition, or his 2003 Syria Accountability Act.

But today he looks prescient and gutsy. Back then, the Bush administration was trying to run away from such ideas. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at one point turned to a Democrat, then-Sen. Joe Biden, to block Mr. Santorum’s Iran bill, before it finally passed. But Mr. Santorum’s basic vision has prevailed…”

Wm. Gibson, Sun Sentinel: Allan West Pulls in the $$$, “Second only to John Boehner”

“West, a Republican freshman and tea party favorite from Plantation, raised $5.8 million through Dec. 31, more than $8 for every resident he hopes to represent in a newly drawn district anchored in northern Palm Beach County. Most of that money comes from outside Florida, a sign that his closely watched race has reverberations well beyond his home state.

“West is spending money almost as fast as he collects it, leaving $2.7 million of cash on hand. His big haul reflects an extensive network of conservative donors, the effectiveness of direct-mail fundraising and the far-reaching impact of his national exposure through TV news appearances…”

Michelle Malkin, Town Hall: $4 Billion for Progressives

Thanks Ted and Leonard,

“If you like how the Obama administration’s multibillion-dollar “investments” in bankrupt solar companies have turned out, you’ll love the latest federal loan program to nowhere. It’s the Obamacare loyalty rewards program for progressives.

“To appease liberal Democrats pushing for the so-called “public option” (the full frontal government takeover of our health care system), the White House settled for the creation of a $6 billion network of nonprofit “CO-OPs” that will “compete” with private insurers. It’s socialized medicine through the side door. House Republicans sliced about $2 billion from the slush fund in last spring’s budget deal and proclaimed the program dead. Hardly.

“On Wednesday, the White House trumpeted the release of nearly $700 million in taxpayer-funded low-interest loans for seven CO-OPs in eight states. Administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the fund will pour more money into CO-OP plans nationwide throughout the next year. In 2014, according to Washington bureaucrats, the plans will be offered on the federally approved and federally monitored state health exchange “marketplace.”

“Some marketplace….”

WSJ: Halftime in Detroit

Thanks Ted,

Taxpayers will be paying for the auto bailouts for decades to come.

“Politicians everywhere are forming encounter groups to commemorate the great Detroit rescue of 2008-2009, and given the selection of recent economic policies to feel good about, maybe the auto bailout is the best they can do. Still, amid Michigan’s GOP primary and President Obama’s re-election victory lap, this $81.8 billion-odd adventure in industrial policy could stand more scrutiny.

“The bailouts worked, the story goes, because General Motors and Chrysler still exist and their stocks are trading above $0. Yet existence is a lousy measure of success, given that the car makers were able to shed billions of dollars of debt and labor obligations in their government-managed and -financed bankruptcies.

“And while GM, Chrysler and Ford may be out of financial danger, for now, their political liabilities continue to multiply. The Bush-Obama bailout isn’t over because its terms increase the chances that one or more of the Big Three end up in trouble again. To adapt Clint Eastwood, it’s halftime in Detroit…”

John Bingham, UK Telegraph: World’s Most Famous Atheist, Richard Dawkins, Is Unsure God Doesn’t Exist

This IS extraordinary! Maybe Richard has gotten some email from Muslims…or he’s spoken with Rick Santorum about Satan…

“For much of the discussion the Archbishop sat quietly listening to Prof Dawkins’s explanations of human evolution.

“At one point he told the professor that he was “inspired” by “elegance” of the professor’s explanation for the origins of life – and agreed with much of it.

“Prof Dawkins told him: “What I can’t understand is why you can’t see the extraordinary beauty of the idea that life started from nothing – that is such a staggering, elegant, beautiful thing, why would you want to clutter it up with something so messy as a God?”

“Dr Williams replied that he ‘entirely agreed’ with the ‘beauty’ of Prof Dawkins’s argument but added: ‘I’m not talking about God as an extra who you shoehorn on to that.”

“There was surprise when Prof Dawkins acknowledged that he was less than 100 per cent certain of his conviction that there is no creator.

“The philosopher Sir Anthony Kenny, who chaired the discussion, interjected: ‘Why don’t you call yourself an agnostic?’ Prof Dawkins answered that he did…”

Mark Steyn, NRO: Danica Patrick

“CNN’s John King did his best the other night, producing a question from one of his viewers:

‘Since birth control is the latest hot topic, which candidate believes in birth control, and if not, why?’

“To their credit, no Republican candidate was inclined to accept the premise of the question. King might have done better to put the issue to Danica Patrick. For some reason, Michelle Fields of the Daily Caller sought the views of the NASCAR driver and Sports Illustrated swimwear model about “the Obama administration’s dictate that religious employers provide health-care plans that cover contraceptives.” Miss Patrick, a practicing Catholic, gave the perfect citizen’s response for the Age of Obama:

“I leave it up to the government to make good decisions for Americans.”

Republican Dave Christian Fights the GOP

“The Pennsylvania Republican State Committee is targeting the petitions of U.S. Senate candidate, David Christian, with the intention of knocking him off the ballot.

“‘Over the last two weeks our volunteers worked very hard to sign up Republicans interested in putting David Christian on the ballot for U.S. Senate. We followed the rules, operated within the parameters and received more than the necessary signatures to be on the ballot,’ said David Christian. ‘Now the same Republican Party I have worked so hard for, for decades has decided to target my campaign.’

“The Christian Campaign was notified over the weekend by numerous sources, including some state leaders, that the Republican State Committee had planned to file its challenges this Tuesday. The campaign expected all along to be challenged, because of Christian’s strong support in Southeast Pennsylvania. It was alarmed to learn however, that strong arm tactics aimed at the intimidation of volunteer petition circulators were being used by the Bucks County Republican Committee. The Committee’s Vice Chair, Pat Poprik, in a phone call, allegedly threatened the reputation and livelihood of a circulator, who has a longstanding and exemplary history of service within the county party.

“‘It’s shameful. It’s becoming evidently clear that Party insiders realized that they have made a serious mistake by endorsing an Obama supporter, who also supported one of the most liberal elected officials we have ever had in Congress.’ said Campaign Manager Skip Salvesen. (An Obama supporter who donated $10,000 to Tom Corbett…)

“The David Christian for Senate campaign intends to fight the challenge.”

Seung Min Kim: Politico: November Debt Ceiling

Great timing!

The federal government could hit the debt ceiling sooner than expected — and possibly around the November election — according to a report out Friday.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill had hoped that last summer’s deal to end the nasty fight over lifting the debt ceiling would ensure the issue wouldn’t resurface until at least 2013.

But the Bipartisan Policy Center said Friday that the debt-limit doomsday could come earlier than that.

Analysts from the Bipartisan Policy Center projected that the United States will hit its $16.4 trillion debt ceiling between late November 2012 and early January 2013 due to lower-than-expected corporate tax revenues and the recent extension of the payroll tax holiday.

Boston Catholic Insider: Mitt Lied…

“As readers know, if there is one thing that gets under our skin here at BCI, it is deception. This one by former Gov. Romney about a situation here in Massachusetts affects how the country perceives values important to many Catholics, so BCI felt we could not let it sit without a response.

“In the Republican Presidential debate Wednesday evening at about 8:50pm or so, former Gov. Mitt Romney said he never infringed on the rights of Catholics as governor of Massachusetts by requiring the Catholic Church to provide morning-after pills to rape victims–it was “entirely voluntary” on the part of the Catholic Church.

If providing morning-after pills was “voluntary” on the part of the Catholic Church, then that would mean that Cardinal O’Malley volunteered to have Catholic hospitals give out abortifacients.

“That is simply not true…”

Byron York, Washington Examiner: Sour GOPers

DETROIT - Barbara VanSyckel is the chairwoman of the Republican Party in Macomb County, Mich., a key county in a key state with a crucial GOP primary coming next Tuesday. She was looking forward to the Republican debate from Arizona this week, eager to see the candidates outline their positions before heading to Michigan. But after watching for a while, VanSyckel actually turned the debate off, disgusted by the negativity and bad-mouthing between the candidates.

“‘I just got really tired,’ she says. ‘Didn’t Ron Paul call Rick Santorum a fake? Are you kidding me? And what bothered me was when Romney went after Santorum about the Arlen Specter thing. … It was at that moment that I said, you know what? I really don’t want to listen anymore.’

“If you’re a party trying to build enough enthusiasm to take back the White House, it’s never a good idea to alienate your own county chairmen so much that they won’t even watch your debates. But that is the situation as the increasingly sour Republican race moves to Michigan…”

Baldwin & Murdock, NRO: Mitt Lied about Immigration

“It is clear the Romney campaign, beginning with his 2008 bid, decided to use immigration as one of the few hooks it had to lure conservatives to its camp. With Romney’s dismal record on fiscal and social issues, his consultants must have concluded that with so little said about immigration by Romney while governor, they could get away with creating a phony record.

Indeed, if one digs deeply, a disturbing pattern emerges. Romney’s “hard-line” positions on immigration suddenly arose as he began thinking of running for president in 2006. Moreover, his current views on immigration usually contradict what he actually said and did as governor. It appears that Romney’s immigration positions have been created solely for his presidential run or were based upon events that simply never occurred.

Aaron Klein, KleinonLine: NATO Gives Syria to the Brotherhood

As in Libya and Egypt, a different set of whips and fists will violate human rights…Be proud Hillary, Hama, and Samantha…and Mr. Soros’ “Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect.”

“…Damascus officials claimed to KleinOnline that NATO troops are currently training in Turkey for a Turkish-led NATO invasion of Syria.

“Any deployment would most likely come under the banner of the same ‘Responsibility to Protect’ global doctrine used to justify the U.S.-NATO airstrikes in Libya.

Responsibility to Protect, or Responsibility to Act, as cited by President Obama, is a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of “war crimes,” “genocide,” “crimes against humanity” or “ethnic cleansing.”

“George Soros-funded doctrine with White House ties

“The Libya bombings have been widely regarded as a test of a military doctrine called “Responsibility to Protect.”

“In his address to the nation in April explaining the NATO campaign in Libya, Obama cited the doctrine as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya.

“The Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect is the world’s leading champion of the military doctrine.

“As KleinOnline reported, billionaire activist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect. Several of the doctrine’s main founders also sit on boards with Soros…”

Aaron Klein, KleinonLine: Media Matters Tied to Obama

“President Obama served for eight years on the board of a charity that is a top donor to the embattled Media Matters for America progressive activist organization.

Obama is also tied to numerous other top Media Matters donors and fundraisers, including a foundation run by the finance chair of his 2008 presidential campaign, KleinOnline has learned.

Last week, the Daily Caller released a list of grants to Media Matters. A KleinOnline review of the donor list found multiple deep ties to Obama…”

“…While Obama was on the Joyce Foundation board, the organization granted tens of millions of dollars to gun control organizations. Also numerous large grants were provided to a group called Leadership for Quality Education, which was run by John Ayers, the brother of Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers.

“Also while Obama was at Joyce, the foundation gave numerous grants to the Small Schools workshop at the University of Chicago which was founded by Bill Ayers and is run by avowed communist activist Mike Klonsky, who served with Ayers in the Students for a Democratic Society group.

“Another key funding tie for Media Matters is the Center for American Progress led by John Podesta, who directed Obama’s transition team into the White House.

Media Matters reportedly entered into a fundraising-sharing agreement with the Center for American Progress, or CAP…”

WND was first to report last week on the Tides’ donations to Media Matters…”

Morning Bell: Heritage Foundation Bus Tour

“…The United States is at a crossroads. Over the course of the next 10 months, Americans will watch as the future of our country is debated — state by state, county by county, and town by town. In the 2012 presidential election, voters will make a fundamental decision that will have vast implications for future generations and the very survival of the American dream.

“That’s why today The Heritage Foundation and the Family Research Council (FRC) are proud to embark on a bus tour designed to tell Americans about practical, conservative solutions to the most critical issues confronting the nation. With a banner proclaiming “Your Money, Your Values, Your Vote,” our Values Bus will roll into Charleston, South Carolina, this morning for our first event outside TD Arena at the College of Charleston. And we’ll be joined by a very special guest — South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. From there, the bus tour will roll on until the November 6 presidential election.

“Along the way, Heritage will emphasize restoring fiscal responsibility through its Saving the American Dream plan, and FRC will stress critical values issues during our joint voter education and registration campaign…”

Rebecca Cusey, Patheos: “Act of Valor”

“The problem is not with the new ‘Act of Valor’ movie that opens today. It’s a rousing manifesto. The problem is with some players in Hollywood and a segment of the American public who consider modern American soldiers something to be pitied rather than admired.

“They respect the soldier in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Global War on Terror, just not what they do. There is an unspoken feeling that the American troops have been duped into something unsavory, as if looking for a better life or free education, they signed up and found themselves in an icky – if not downright dishonorable – war.

“In ‘Act of Valor,’ the soldiers speak for themselves and their message is loud and clear: We know exactly what we are doing. We consider it worthwhile. We consider it an honor…”

March 27th, 2012, 1 PM: AfP – Hands Off My Health Care Rally in DC

Buses run from North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York/Jersey.

“Over the past few years, Americans for Prosperity has been the premier grassroots group educating the public on the dangers of the President’s health care bill. AFP’s Hands Off My Health Care Tour crisscrossed the nation in 2009 hosting over 300 events and rallies. Then, in late 2009, over 5,000 activists gathered for AFP’s Code Red Rally in Washington.

We must remind the Court and all of Washington that the President’s health care takeover is an affront to free-market principles and our Constitution. Not only is the individual mandate unconstitutional, but it forces consumers to enter the health insurance market against their will. Click here to read more about the individual mandate.

Katie Rogers, WaPo: High-Density “Cheating” 90 Minutes Away

“In popular and political culture, Washington is no stranger to scandal and intrigue involving successful people and their extramarital pursuits. Think about it: Clinton/Lewinsky. Condit/Levy.Weiner/The Internet.

Then there’s the rest of us — still successful, and still ready to cheat, according to adultery Web site Ashleymadison.com, which says the District is home to nearly 38,000 registered users. The site also named Washington the place with the highest per capita membership in its 13-million-strong user base…”

“…For Washington, DC, Ashleymadison.com  receives approximately 30 new sign-ups per day with peaks on Mondays…”
