Judicial supremacy and the Constitution

National Review
by Robert Lowry Clinton


Many Americans are puzzled and angry about the judicial assault on religion, morality, and common sense that has been going on for the past few decades. People wonder, for example, how the First Amendment (which guarantees freedom of religion as well as separation of church and state) could possibly require the expulsion of religion from public life, or outlaw prayers at high-school football games and graduation ceremonies. To answer questions like these, one must understand how federal judges got the power to make such controversial political decisions in the first place, and how the judges used that power to bludgeon the American citizenry into believing that their power was legitimate...

The abyss also gazes

The Libertarian Enterprise
by Jim Davidson


Ask why are these wars? They benefit those who supply them. Ask, what of the children slaughtered? They aren’t important to those who supply the wars. The people who make the profits from the multi-trillion-dollar war effort do not care about the children who are slaughtered, at all...

Mit US-Drohnen soll islamistischer Prediger im Jemen getötet werden

Im April soll US-Präsident der CIA die Eliminierung des Predigers und US-Bürgers Al-Awlaki befohlen haben.


Sind gezielte Tötungen mit Drohnen Selbstverteidigung oder Mord?

Der Tötungsbefehl des US-Präsidenten für einen islamistischen Prediger in Jemen, der US-Bürger ist, führt zu Diskussionen über rechtliche Grundlagen.



Obama's Ocean of Troubles



Current Timeline to Shut Down Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: Three Months

Mark Sappenfield, The Christian Science Monitor: "Federal officials gave a sobering appraisal of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill Sunday, with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar saying 'ultimate relief' was 90 days away. Federal officials speaking about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill Sunday morning appeared to be steeling the Louisiana coast - and the nation - for consequences that could be 'catastrophic.'"


The Ten Worst Man-Made Environmental Disasters

Maura O'Connor, GlobalPost: "The oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is now about the size of Puerto Rico. It's already reached the marshes of Louisiana. Oil-covered wildlife are starting to show up along the shores. Shrimp, fish and oyster harvest areas have been closed. Residents of Mississippi and Alabama are just waiting for the oil to hit."


Halliburton Under Scrutiny for Possible Role in Oil Disaster and More ...

Halliburton potentially liable for oil explosion in the Gulf; authorities continue search for those responsible in attempted New York car bombing; Greek Bailout Package approved.


Things Fall Apart

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: "'Things fall apart,' William Butler Yeats wrote. 'The center cannot hold; mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, the blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned.' He could have been talking about us, about this past week in America, about what happens when madness, greed and fear combine and conspire to show us what it looks like when the gates of Hell crack open."


Ongoing Safety Violations at BP's Refineries Endanger Employees' Lives

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "BP Plc's troubles are not just limited to its Gulf of Mexico operations, where a deadly blast aboard a drilling rig two weeks ago ruptured an oil well 5,000 feet below the sea's surface and triggered a massive oil leak that is now the size of a small country."



Schwarzenegger flips on drilling



California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday reversed his support for offshore drilling in the wake of a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Speaking at a press conference in Sacramento, Schwarzenegger said his mind was changed over the weekend while watching media reports of the spill. … The term-limited Republican governor had previous proposed that the state expand drilling off the coast of Santa Barbara in part to help fill the state’s gaping budget deficit...


Nobody knows the trouble we’ll see

Huffington Post
by James Moore


We might be powerless. The oil flowing out from the seabed in the Gulf of Mexico may be under such great pressure that we do not possess technology to stop the tragedy. Chances are quite good we have no true sense of the dire nature of the situation. The facts that have been ascertained, however, lead to a dark scenario...



Liberty Unbound
by Gary Jason


An ocean of ink has been devoted to the surprising election results in Virginia, New Jersey, and especially Massachusetts. There is so much angst in the country that even the exceptionally obtuse Obama has become aware of it. To use a term rendered infamous by the feckless Jimmy Carter, we are experiencing a national malaise. But what Obama fails to comprehend is that at the root of the current national malaise is Obama himself. In this, as in many other ways, Obama uncannily resembles Carter, who projected his own defects of thought and action onto the nation, generating the anxiety and distrust he was purporting to heal. We can rightly call the national mood ‘Obamalaise,’ because it arises not just from Obama’s agenda but from his character...


Shutting down free speech

The American Spectator
by Mark Hyman


Popular speech and political dissent have proved troublesome to President Barack Obama since the very beginning of his term in office. The Obama Administration began waging war on the minority of media outlets that did not worship at his altar immediately after he was sworn in...
