Nobel Peace Prize winner orders targeted assassinations of his own citizens

Adam Smith Institute
by Nikhil Arora


Barack Obama (the ‘Change We Can Believe In’ President) looks more like his disastrous predecessor every passing day. I am not talking about the bailouts to politically-connected cronies, ‘stimulus’ spending that doesn’t stimulate anything, or the futile throwing of money at an inefficient healthcare system. Rather, I am referring to something that Democrats and ‘proper liberals’ are supposed to agree on — the rule of law and the rejection of unconstitutional anti-terrorism policies. Specifically, I am talking about the use of targeted assassination as a policy priority...

Handouts for lobbyists

Fox Business News
by John Stossel


On the campaign trail, Barack Obama promised to get tough with lobbyists; ‘They will not work in my White House,’ he declared. ‘We’ve excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs.’ But Obama’s stimulus plan has created jobs for those evil lobbyists. Tom Schatz of Citizens Against Government Waste writes that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is dishing out grants for lobbying groups that want to change how Americans live.

Now the Obama administration wants to crack down on these abusive practices. … Such accountability is welcome, but there’s a deeper issue at stake: the way internships today privilege the privileged. In an environment where getting a good job requires a long stint as an unpaid intern, only those with substantial savings can get ahead. So rather than act as a leveler, this great recession may end up providing a further boost to the prep-school crowd...

Let’s get our own foreign policy house in order before criticizing others

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


On March 31, 2010, the New York Times wrote an editorial that briefly expressed horror in response to the Moscow subway terror bombings, then warned that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin might yet again use terrorist attacks to further consolidate his power, and finally lectured Russia that the only way to defeat such extremism was to deal with the underlying causes. Such a sermonizing editorial by any Russian publication after the 9/11 attacks would have engendered outrage in America. Yet the same conclusions and advice that the Times gave to Russia in the wake of its tragedy could equally be applied to post-9/11 U.S. policy...
