Congress's Monstrous Legal Legacy - WSJ

The historians will long be fighting over the legislative legacy of the 111th Congress. As to its legal legacy, the only real question is whether this just-finished Democratic Congress was the most unserious in decades, or the most unserious in history.
That much is clear from the recent ObamaCare court proceedings. Federal Judge Henry Hudson, responding to a lawsuit by the state of Virginia, last week struck down the core of the law, the individual mandate. His decision came the same week that a coalition of 20 states presented oral arguments against the health law in front of Florida federal Judge Roger Vinson. In October, Judge Vinson ruled against the Obama Justice Department's motion to dismiss the states' lawsuit.
The law professors and think-tankers and media folk who initially ridiculed these lawsuits have now had to dream up sinister reasons for why they are succeeding. Judges Hudson and Vinson, we are told, were both appointed by Republicans and obviously can't be …

SOTUS

I’m the President’s Trusted Counselor
February 10, 2010 by ab

My name is Straw Man, and I’ve got a direct pipeline to the Oval Office.

Some people get quoted in presidential speeches by writing heartfelt letters to the president about personal loss, or by doing something heroic, like landing a plane in the icy Hudson River.

I just sit in the Oval Office, and mouth off to President Barack Obama, one inanity after the next. And sure enough, my words—word for word, mind you!—show up in his biggest speeches.

Who am I? Sotus—Straw man of the United States. I’m Mr. Obama’s most trusted rhetorical friend.

In his speeches, Mr. Obama says there are “those” who suggest we “can meet our enormous tests with half-steps and piecemeal measures.” He suggests there are “some” who are content to let America’s economy become, at best, “number two.” He says that on health care, “some people” think we should do nothing.

Listen, there is no “some people.” He’s just quoting me, Sotus.

Why, just a few weeks ago, I s…

Understanding Taqiyya

Understanding Taqiyya - Islamic
Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah
by Warner MacKenzie
30 April, 2007
Lying and cheating in the Arab world is
not really a moral matter but a method of safeguarding honor and
status, avoiding shame, and at all times exploiting possibilities,
for those with the wits for it, deftly and expeditiously to convert
shame into honor on their own account and vice versa for their
opponents. If honor so demands, lies and cheating may become
absolute imperatives.”
[David Pryce-Jones, “The Closed
Circle” An interpretation of the Arabs, p4]
“No dishonor attaches to such primary transactions as
selling short weight, deceiving anyone about quality, quantity or
kind of goods, cheating at gambling, and bearing false witness. The
doer of these things is merely quicker off the mark than the next
fellow; owing him nothing, he is not to be blamed for taking what he can.”
[David Pryce-Jones, “The Closed Circle”, p38]
The word "Taqiyya" literally means: "Concea…

EHR KUMT - a Rosh Hashanah sermon by Rabbi Shalom Lewis

EHR KUMTFirst Day of Rosh Hashanah 2010By Rabbi Shalom Lewis Many years ago a Chassid used to travel from shtetl to shtetl selling holy books. On one occasion he came to a wealthy land owner and asked if he would like to purchase a book of Torah teachings. The banker agreed and not only purchased the book, but paid for it with a hundred ruble note. He then began to chat with the Chassid and offered him a cigar, taking one also for himself. The Chassid noticed that the banker proceeded to rip a page from the holy book he had just bought and holding it to the open flame on the stove, used the page to light his cigar. The Chassid said not a word but simply drew out from his pocket the 100 ruble note he had just received from the banker, held it over the stove as well and used it to light his cigar.
This simple, little tale reflects a profound divergence of values. Our sympathy clearly and instinctively is not with the banker but with …

Dead Yemeni bride, 13, ‘a victim of childhood abuse’

Dead Yemeni bride, 13, ‘a victim of childhood abuse’

SANA’A // Elham Mahdi al Assi, a 13-year-old girl, died from severe haemorrhaging and the rupturing of internal organs as a result of sexual intercourse, just five days after she was married.
Her death follows a number of high-profile child marriage cases that have shaken Yemen and, activists hope, may go some way towards bringing about a law that would establish a minimum age for marriage.
Elham, who lived in the village of Qalat Hameed in Hajja province, about 130km north of Sana’a, was married on March 29 to a man in his 20s in a traditional arrangement known as a “swap marriage”, in which the brother of the bride married the sister of the groom. She died on April 2, though it is not clear if she was dead before arriving at the hospital.
Her body remains at al Thawra hospital, in the province’s ca…

Comments on Islam from an article at forbes.com

I like this post, and heartily agree and hope that the destruction of Islam will come to pass, freeing the millions who suffer under its cruel yoke.

A group of muslims is called "a nest of muslim parasites".

Let them build the mosque at ground zero.. Taller than the towers..it's fine...let Barak Husain Oh!Bama build a mosque on the white house lawns.... Taller than the white house....it's fine....let Prince Charles build one on the palace lawns....taller than the palace....it's fine....let the pope build a mosque on the Vatican grounds....taller than the Vatican building....it's fine ....the more mosques the better and the taller they are the better... That is the only way common people will start seething at intrusive and evil Islam.

I predict that within a 100 years there will be no mosques left in this world and there will be no Islam on the planet because Saudi Arabia and the Muslim countries will be wiped out by the …

If You Put Your Mind To It You Can Believe Anything

By Tim Sadler
March 30, 2010 | ISSUE 46-13

I'm not one of those people who spends his whole life wishing things had turned out differently. Sure, the so-called "real world" can be a pretty cruel place sometimes, but why sit around all day worrying about the way things are when, with a little imagination, determination, and blinding denial, you can convince yourself that everything is great?

It may sound crazy, but I'm telling you, if you put your mind to it, you can make yourself believe just about anything!

Don't let annoying little hang-ups like logic, reason, or even reality stand in the way of what you want to be true. Your mind is the most powerful tool you have, and if you use it correctly, you'll be amazed at all the incredible things you can deny.

Lose your job due to gross incompetence and whispers of corporate malfeasance? No, you didn't. You left your job voluntarily and without incident, because it was stifling your creative energy. Wife hates yo…

Ex-Palestinian Spy Talks About Evils of Islam, Hamas' Brutalities

NEW YORK — Mosab Hassan Yousef, who helped Israel's security forces kill and arrest members of the Islamic militant group Hamas, is probably marked for death.
He should be keeping silent. But he's got a story to tell, one he delivers in his new book published this week, "Son of Hamas."
"To be honest with you, being killed is not the worst thing that can happen," he said Wednesday in an interview with The Associated Press. "If they want to do kill me ... let them do it, and they will be responsible for my blood."
In his memoir, Yousef, the 32-year-old son of a Hamas founder, claims he was one of the Shin Bet security agency's best assets and was dubbed The Green Prince, a reference to his Hamas pedigree and the Islamists' signature green color.
During his 50-minute interview, for which he arrived with armed security, Yousef took shots at Hamas leaders including political chief Khaled Meshaal. He lashed out at Hamas, saying the organization live…

To the graduating class of ...

Congratulations to each and every one of you, who, through diligent attention to your studies, through hard work, determination, and in many cases, good luck, have achieved an essential element of that great American dream: a college education; a degree from a prestigious and accredited university. This is not only an American dream, but a dream for all civilized people everywhere in the world.

Your degree will open doors to opportunities that are not available to those who do not possess one. You are now among the elite of the nations; the best, the brightest; the educated. And, you now have the documentation to prove it.

However, although you may have thought otherwise, the truth is that your true education is just beginning.

I say beginning, because most of you have yet to master the most important skill of all: how to think. It is true that you know how to study, you know how to research an assigned topic, you know how to argue persuasively, and you know how to pay attention.

But…

The New Fascists - by James Hudnall (BigGovernment.com)

“My dear brothers, never forget, when you hear the progress of enlightenment vaunted, that the devil’s best trick is to persuade you that he doesn’t exist!”
- Charles Baudelaire, Le Joueur généreux, February 7, 1864

Forget everything you think you know about politics. It is probably wrong.

There is no left or right. Communist, Socialist, Liberal, Conservative, Progressive, Democrat, Republican, those are all meaningless terms. They are used to confuse people so they miss the point. The most important point about politics there is. There are only two schools of political thought and they have predictable results. All the names and labels for them are just smoke and mirrors.

Political ideology is designed by elites to trick the masses into doing what they want. Each side tells you something designed to get your emotions going so they can play you. They get you to agree to give them more power, money and control over your lives by telling you some kind of story.

We need to put that vicious cy…

MLK's neice on Racism and Abortion

LifeNews.com Note: Alveda King is the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. King is a leading pro-life voice who formerly had two abortions before having a faith conversion and she now is a speaker for and representative of the educational outreach of Priests for Life and the Silent No More network. This editorial originally appeared in the Washington Times.

Let me begin by telling you that two of 50 million children taken away by abortionists since 1973 were mine. I can still see them in my mind's eye.

Like many black women, I once believed the doctor who told me my babies were no more than "a blob of tissue." I wanted to believe it. Eventually, I realized I was wrong, that I was a secondary victim of abortion. I repented and found healing through God. Today, I work in the civil rights movement of our century -- the right of every one of every race to live.

I am asking you to join me. Let me tell you why. Abortion and racism are evil twins, born of the same lie. Where raci…

MLK's Neice on Abortion

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- On a day when Americans across the country are celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his desire to regard all people as Americans worthy of equal treatment, his niece says King's dream, if announced today, would also include protecting unborn children from abortion.

Dr. Alveda King, today, is celebrating Uncle’s life and she said he would agree that, when it comes to treating all people with respect, that he would include babies before birth.

“Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of a Beloved Community where all are treated with respect and dignity,” Alveda King told LifeNews.com today.
“He fought against society’s exclusion of people who were treated as less than human because of their appearance," she added. "Today, we are compelled to continue Uncle Martin’s fight by standing up for those who are treated as less than human because of their helplessness and inconvenience."

King told LifeNews.com, “The unborn are as much a pa…
