Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard writes: I’ve gleaned his views from the two budgets and from the “reducing the budget” speech in April 2011, the address to a special session of Congress on jobs in September 2011, the speech at Osawatomie, Kansas, last December, and the State of the Union address last month. Here’s what the president not only believes but is committed to:
(1) America is an unjust and deeply unfair country. “The basic bargain that made this country great has eroded,” Obama said at Osawatomie. “Hard work [has] stopped paying off for too many people. Fewer and fewer of the folks who contributed to the success of our economy actually benefited from that success.”
(2) A looming debt crisis? Forget it. Obama hardly mentioned the deficit or the national debt in the State of the Union
(3) Government spending is better at spurring the economy than private investment.
(4) Tax reform should flush loopholes and special breaks out of the tax code, broaden the base, and raise tax rates for the well-to-do. 
(5) When the rich get richer, the middle class and poor get worse off.
(6) Conservative, free market economics is a plague. Obama describes it as an economic system that tells Americans, “You’re on your own.”
(7) Medicare and Medicaid are not big problems. The huge deficits they are projected to generate can be handled by “modest adjustments,” he said in the jobs speech.
(8) The investor class is not tax sensitive. Raise the rates on income, capital gains, and dividends, impose a minimum income tax rate on millionaires of 30 percent, and it won’t change their financial behavior. After all, they’re rich.

ABC News reports: Gingrich told the crowd, many of them young students, there was a real threat of an American city being wiped out. Gingrich said the Obama administration refuses to acknowledge radical Islamists.
“All of you should be very deeply concerned about national security. Barack Obama is the most dangerous president in modern American history,” Gingrich said.
Gingrich said the Obama administration was demonstrating “willful dishonesty” over describing what motivated the suspected terrorist from Morocco, who was arrested Friday by FBI agents for allegedly plotting to blow up the Capitol.
“Any honest person knows what motivated the person who came here,” Gingrich said. “This is not smearing everybody, this is not Islamaphobia. If we can’t have honest conversation about radical Islamists and we can’t figure out — there is a very specific group of people across the planet — there’s a very specific desire to kill us.”
Gingrich said the Obama administration was intellectually disarmed and incapable of describing threats that face the United States. http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/02/gingrich-obama-is-dangerous-defeating-him-a-duty-of-national-security/
Townhall explains: Please consider Jobless disability claims soar to record $200B as of January
Standing too many months on the unemployment line is driving Americans crazy — literally — and it’s costing taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars.

With their unemployment-insurance checks running out, some of the country’s long-term jobless are scrambling to fill the gap by filing claims for mental illness and other disabilities with Social Security — a surge that hobbles taxpayers and making the employment rate look healthier than it should as these people drop out of the job statistics.

His research also shows a growing number of men, particularly older, former white-collar workers, instead of the typical blue-collar ones, are applying.

The big concern about the swelling ranks is that once people get on disability, they’re unlikely to give it up and go back to work. http://finance.townhall.com/columnists/mikeshedlock/2012/02/21/newest_government_magic_trick_disability_fraud_holds_down_unemployment_rate_disability_hits_record_200b/page/full/

The UK Telegraph reports: Ministers will today warn that previous policies to encourage multiculturalism have failed and left people “afraid to express legitimate concerns and frustrations.”
The Coalition will today publish a new “integration strategy” which will set out plans to reunite communities across the country and halt the rise of extremism.
The integration strategy will state: “We believe in certain values and will actively promote them: freedom of speech; freedom of worship; democracy and the rule of law. Long-standing British values of tolerance are the bedrock of our society. We will champion a united British identity, across class, colour and creed.”
The strategy will advocate the teaching of British history and culture in schools and encourage the flying of flags in public places. It will also say that the Government “wants” immigrants to speak English and for the new national citizen service for teenagers to bring together children from different backgrounds. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/9095181/Immigrants-will-be-expected-to-speak-English-and-champion-British-culture.html
Yahoo News wrote: The House of Representatives passed an energy bill on Thursday that would wrest control of a permit for the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline away from President Barack Obama, who has put the project on hold.
The bill, part of a broader House Republican effort to fund highways and infrastructure projects, would also expand offshore oil drilling and open up parts of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.
While approval of the Keystone measure by the House was widely expected, what happens with a similar proposal in the Democratic-controlled Senate is not yet clear. http://news.yahoo.com/house-passes-keystone-bill-senate-action-uncertain-020608235.html
PJ Media reports: Now that America-hating Islamists control three-quarters of Egypt’s parliament and the military government has rejected American protests at the prosecution of U.S. citizens for supporting democracy, Egypt is asking for $11 billion in Western aid. That has to be the least popular idea to float down the Potomac in a long time. Nonetheless, the Obama administration and its supporters in the Punditeska doubtless will ask American taxpayers to ante up a large part of the $11 billion handout, in the interest of  “promoting Egyptian democracy.” Only in America do we feed the mouth that bites us.

Free Beacon reports: An Economy Built to Crash -Geithner admits Obama's budget 'unsustainable' for second year in row.  President Obama described his fiscal year 2013 budget – the most expensive in United States history – as “a blueprint for an economy that is built to last. ”http://freebeacon.com/geithner-admits-obamas-budget-unsustainable/


Fox News reports: With less than two weeks until elections, Russian Prime Minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin pledged to spend 23 trillion rubles ($770 billion) on strengthening the country's army over the next 10 years, the Kremlin's biggest military spending spree since the Cold War.
Putin vowed to deliver an "effective and asymmetrical response" to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's plan to cast a missile-defense shield over Europe while thoroughly overhauling the army's ability to confront modern threats.
"It's obvious we won't be able to develop our international position, our economy or democratic institutions if we cannot defend Russia," Putin wrote in an article for the government-owned Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper. "We must not tempt anyone with our weakness." http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/02/20/russian-prime-minister-vladimir-putin-pledges-more-defense-spending/?cmpid=cmty_email_Gigya_Russian_Prime_Minister_Vladimir_Putin_pledges_more_defense_spending
