‘Really?  Libya?  WHY?’
Middle East item by Doug Edelman

Does anyone remember Operation Cyclone? In 1979, Jimmy Carter began arming the Mujahidin in Afghanistan, and ordered the CIA to begin stirring Islamic unrest in the region to “destabilize” the area and help repel the “oppressive” Soviet Union.  This action may well have made things more difficult for the Soviets, but it also set in motion the creation of Al Qaida and the Taliban!  And, of course, Carter’s policies regarding Iran allowed the creation of the Islamic Republic, now the largest state sponsor of terror on the planet!  One could well argue that Carter and his policies were contributory if not causative to the events leading to and following 9-11!

Safe Hamburger—At Last
Food item by Dennis T. Avery

In the old days, we cooked hamburgers rare, juicy and flavorful. In recent years, because of E. coli 0157:H7, we’ve had to content ourselves with hamburgers that were gray and dry or run the risk of serious illness.  0157:H7 is the relatively new and vicious “Jack-in-the-Box” bacteria that killed four kids in Seattle in 1993. It was seen first by researchers in the 1980s. Since then, it has killed hundreds and sickened thousands more with bloody diarrhea, severe abdominal cramps, and even liver failure.

A Cynical Clarity
Liberal "Solutions" item by Larry Wilke

In the article entitled, “False Assumption Behind Delaying Obamacare Threaten Re-Election Bid” (Fox News dot com 03/25/2011) we read that there was a “political wisdom” when it came to “pushing off the least appealing elements” of the Obama Health Scare Scam.  In two years time, Obama has proven that he is as allergic to “political wisdom” as he is to conservative sensibility..

Against All Energy Anywhere
GreeenIsm item by Alan Caruba

One of the great afflictions of the environmentalists—Greens—everywhere is a profound lack of understanding of the role that energy plays in whether a nation prospers or just limps along, barely keeping the lights on. A classic case is the communist paradise of North Korea that is almost completely dark at night while just across the 38th parallel, South Korea is ablaze with light, energy, and a thriving economy.

The Bureaucracies That Marijuana Feeds
Constitution/Republic item by Chuck Baldwin

On March 14, 2011, federal police agencies raided scores of marijuana-related businesses in a number of states—including my home State of Montana. Hundreds of people were detained, put in handcuffs, and their property seized. To my knowledge, however, only a handful has actually been arrested (at least in Montana).

What Needs To Be Said About What Needs To Be Done
Economics item by Dr. Robert Owens

Its spring and I’m in a motel snowed in for the second time in three days.  This past weekend I spoke at a symposium hosted by the Tenth Amendment Center at Southern New Hampshire University.  It was a power packed event.  A full day surrounded by people who not only see the hand writing on the wall but who also believe they know what the words mean left my head swimming with the ideas presented and the inevitable optimism created when people see a problem and take action.

Pennsylvania Governor Places Communal Glory Over Individual Worth
Progressivism item by Frederick Meekins

In his comments regarding the cancellation of a football game, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell actually let slip the contempt he feels towards the citizens of the United States in general and the people of the Keystone State in particular.

Now The Court Has Stolen The Stolen Valor Act
Judicial Activism item by Thomas D. Segel

Those who have worn the Dress Blue uniform of the United States Marine Corps all know the red stripe running down the trouser legs represents blood shed for this country.  They also know the various medals for valor or military merit are never “won”, but are awarded in recognition of specific acts by an individual member of the armed forces.

A World in Disarray
United Nations item by Alan Caruba

It almost makes one wistful for the Cold War when the world was neatly divided between the United States and its allies against what Ronald Reagan called “the evil empire”, the Soviet Union and its satellite nations.

Truth And Lies of a Government “Shutdown”
Congress Critters item by Christopher G. Adamo

In broad daylight, after having won a landslide victory last November, congressional Republicans are engineering the most embarrassing surrender since Napoleon at Waterloo. And the greatest outrage of it is that such a debacle need not ever take place. To this day, the GOP remains in a prime position to devastate its Democrat opposition and strike a fatal blow to the liberal juggernaut that threatens financial ruin for this country. But, having accepted the standard media diatribe that engaging in such a contest might be politically costly, Republican leaders are instead opting to backtrack and capitulate.

Saudi and Kuwaiti royalty attempt to buy loyalty
Middle East item by Jim Kouri, CPP

On Friday, during a speech televised throughout the Middle East and North Africa, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz announced a number of royal decrees, believed to be an effort to placate those opposing the current government.

Yes, Violence Can be the Answer
Political Correctness item by Selwyn Duke

It was the body slam heard around the world.  When some Australian schoolboys decided to videotape themselves bullying 15-year old Casey Heynes, one of them got more than he bargained for.  Casey, who had been pushed around and humiliated for years, responded to a punch in his face and other attempted blows by hoisting his tormentor WWE style and introducing him to the pavement.  The result was a video that went viral in a way the bullies had never imagined and for a reason they certainly had never hoped: Casey has become a hero worldwide.

‘Obama A Traitor and War Criminal - Where’s Congress?’
ObamaNation item by JB Williams

On the eighth anniversary of the day President George W. Bush ordered US troops into Iraq in 2003, with the full support of the US Congress and majority support from the UN Security Council, Barack Obama launched a Tomahawk missile assault on the sovereign nation of Libya with no majority support in the UN and without even consulting congress.

Aggressive Power and Immoral Authority
Globalists/NWO item by James Hall

Sartre Commentary
Another sad chapter from a desperate imperial empire lays naked for the entire world to see. The pretense that an international community of nations has arbitrary authority to remove any government that conflicts with the master plan of total global enslavement exposes the utter failure of legitimacy. By what moral mandate do belligerent nations have to insight regime change, when the facts clearly demonstrate that conflicting tribal factions are engaged in a civil conflict?

Caution: American Dreams Are Contagious!
Living item by Lloyd Marcus

A funny thing about American dreams, upon building up enough momentum, they become contagious.

Not Another “Give Us A Worst Case Scenario”
MSM/Media Bias item by Thomas D. Segel

Most of us realize that the situation surrounding those damaged nuclear reactors in Japan is extremely serious. A solid news report on what has happened and what is currently being attempted is a worthy effort and does keep the public tuned in on the progress of the multiple tragedies, which have befallen that island nation.  At the same time most of us realize that in an attempt to keep television, radio and print an ever-flowing resource in our modern 24-hour-a-day news cycle, we are overly saturated with verbal redundancy and unsubstantiated babble.  In fact, if the words “Give us a worst case scenario” are never again repeated, it will be treated by most of the population as a blessing.

Hamas rocket attacks on Israel go practically unnoticed
Middle East item by Jim Kouri, CPP

With all eyes on the events unfolding in Japan, with Japanese triple-disaster, and the battle against the regime of Libya’s dictator Moamar Khadhafi, a massive rocket attack on Israel went practically unnoticed this weekend.
