Paul Harvey on the devil; Open Educational Resources promoted by Education Department; Critical Race Theory in our schools; Pacific Education Group in our schools; Muslims discovered America, Jesus was a Palestinian; Teacher assigns opposition research on all Republican Presidential candiates - report to Obama; Teaching Mexican school children to hate Americans; We shall provide all college age children free sterilization; Santorum jumps the shark

Well worth watching is this video from Paul Harvey in 1965, describing just what he would do if he were the devil.  It looks like the Progressives in the country and around the world used this for their playbook...... Among other things, the devil would:
1) Subvert churches and advocate that we should do what we please
2) Bad is good, and good is square
3) Make lurid literature exciting
4) Peddle narcotics
5) Let emotions run wild in schools
6) Take from those who have and give to those who want it til you kill incentive
7) States promote gambling
8) Marriage is old fashioned, swinging is more fun
9) Caution against extremes in patriotism, hard work and moral conduct.
“America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.” Josef Stalin
World Net Daily reports: The Department of Education has partnered with billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Institute to promote a global education initiative that seeks “a world where each and every person on Earth can access and contribute to the sum of all human knowledge.”
Education Secretary Arne Duncan kicked off a $25,000 “Why Open Education Matters” competition that will give a cash prize for the best short video explaining the benefits of what is known as Open Educational Resources, or O.E.R., for students, teachers and schools.
O.E.R. is a form of global teaching that uses digital materials made available free through open licenses, which allow uses of the materials that would not be easily permitted under copyright alone.
Creative Commons was founded in 2001 by Lawrence Lessig, a technology adviser to Obama. Lessig works closely with a Marxist activist who has argued for the dismantling of the U.S. capitalist system and whose George Soros-funded group petitions for more government control of the media.
“In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick-by-brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles,” wrote McChesney in a column.
Breitbart reports: Critical Race Theory already in some schools: When Mary first received notice that District 202, which runs Evanston Township High School, was going to hire PEG to teach the teachers, administrators and staff about “institutional racism”, she and her husband set out to find out a little more about PEG and learned about Critical Race Theory.
“It basically says white people are at fault. My husband and I are the racist ones, didn’t you know?" Mary says in exasperation. "We considered sending our son to a private school. It was all too much. 
The results of the district’s ties to PEG soon spoke for themselves, according to Mary. School officials lowered expectations in honors programs in various subjects in an attempt to create more equity among students of different races.
“I noticed things in the curriculum…an emphasis on certain books. They kicked out the classics and a put in books that were less challenging,” Mary says.
Breitbart reports: In his Macon Miracle school improvement plan, Superintendent Romain Dallemand said he wants to hire the Pacific Educational Group to close the achievement gap between white and Asian students and those of color, primarily blacks and Latinos.
The mission statement of PEG, founded in 1992 by Glenn Singleton, is fairly straightforward: “At Pacific Educational Group we believe systemic racism is the most devastating factor contributing to the diminished capacity of all children, especially black children, to achieve at the highest levels, and contributes to the fracturing of the communities that nurture and support them.”
One of the Macon Miracle’s goals is to train people throughout the district to recognize racial factors in the classroom -- by providing ongoing PEG training.
But in recent public meetings, many Bibb County parents have voiced their concerns, saying the PEG program needlessly attacks white teachers by telling them they are racist. Those parents said Singleton is a polarizing figure, attracting as much criticism for the PEG methodology as he does praise.
Youtube brings to us: School children are being influenced by lies in textbooks.  Books state that Muslims discovered America, and that Jesus was a Palestinian.....
Reason reports: Eighth-graders at Liberty Middle School in Fairfax, Virgina, were assigned opposition research on the four remaining GOP presidential candidates, and told to forward that research to the Obama campaign, reports The Daily Caller: 
The assignment was for students to research the backgrounds and positions of each of the GOP candidates for president and find “weaknesses” in them, the parent explained. From there, students were to prepare a strategy paper to exploit those weaknesses and then to send their suggestions to the Obama campaign.
Youtube presents: They're teaching Mexican children to hate Americans, beginning in 3rd grade.  This shocking video from a school board meeting shows us why we need to monitor what textbooks our children are reading.

( - All student health care plans covering female college students in the United States must include coverage for free voluntary sterilization surgery, the Department of Health and Human Services announced late Friday afternoon.
Women of college age who do not attend school will also get free sterilization coverage whether they are insured through an employer, their parents, or some form of government-subsidized plan.
Rick Santorum: "You win by giving people a choice. You win by giving people the opportunity to see a different vision for our country, not someone who’s just going to be a little different than the person in there. If they’re going to be a little different, we might as well stay with what we have instead of taking a risk of what may be the etch-a-sketch candidate for the future.”
Not surprisingly, Romney jumped on his cavalier attitude about winning back the White House. “I am in this race to defeat Barack Obama and restore America’s promise. I was disappointed to hear that Rick Santorum would rather have Barack Obama as president than a Republican. This election is more important than any one person. It is about the future of America. Any of the Republicans running would be better than President Obama and his record of failure.”

Vot for the other guy; More shocking info to come on Obama; Saudi-funded textbooks in American schools; Occupy calls for the blood of the rich; Occupy dumps feces and urine down stairs; Radical rapper headlines Obama fundraiser; Bristol still waiting for her call from Obama; Facebood password law; State Defense Forces forming; Second Amendment Sovereignty Act; Landowners prevail with Supreme Court;

Glenn Beck reports: One woman in the crowd said, “So you’re all for like, yay, freedom and all this stuff and like pursuit of happiness. You know what would make me happy? Free birth control.”
Romney’s response? “If you’re looking, if you’re looking for free stuff, if you’re looking for free stuff you don’t have to pay for, vote for the other guy. That’s what he’s all about, okay? That’s not what I’m about.”
World Net Daily reports: “America’s toughest sheriff” says there is “tons” more potentially shocking information on Barack Obama in connection with his probe into the president’s eligibility, and he calls the media’s suppression of his findings of a likely forged presidential birth certificate and Selective Service Card “probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States.”
“I’m not going after the president to keep him off a ballot or anything else, but that could happen,” Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “I’m going at it strictly as a law-enforcement guy investigating a possible forgery and fraud. I’m sticking with that, but I’ll tell you one thing. We got tons of other information that could be very shocking, too, but I’m sticking now with just the [forgery] investigation and possible criminal violations.”
Youtube video: Saudi-funded textbooks being used in America's K-12 classrooms.
Teaching, among other things, that Jesus was a "Palestinian," the state of Israel never existed, and that the Muslims discovered America before Columbus. At this rate, perhaps even Saudi grade-school textbooks, complete with jihadi and dhimmi declarations, will come to instruct American school-children.
"Public Schools Teach the ABCs of Islam," by Erick Stakelbeck for CBN News, October 9, 2008:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The Blaze reports: Following a confrontation between Occupy protesters and local police last Thursday, vandals have hit the city with frightening pro-Occupy graffiti.
Buildings, walls, and statues have all been defaced.  The city’s public safety director woke up to the words, “Blood on your hands,” sprayed on his front steps.
Similarly, a hundred-year old statue now has the words “class war” scrawled across it, and a door that says “Park Police” now reads, “Only the blood of the rich will stop Occupy.”
CBS NYC reports: Police said that on evening of March 14, a number of Occupy demonstrators dragged large quantities of human urine and feces in containers to an open-air plaza before pouring the waste down a flight of stairs.
The incident occurred at the corner of Nassau and Cedar streets in Lower Manhattan.
Authorities said that that same night, about 20 minutes later, one of the suspects entered a Chase ATM vestibule on Water Street and poured human waste inside.  [Are Pelosi and Obama still proud of them?]
Too Much at the Pump provides a nifty website: Have you been curious as to how much more you now pay for a tank of gasoline?  Go to this website, find your car model and bingo - the comparison will be made!  Thank you, Mr. President, for you have denied permits, denied the Keystone Pipeline and denied drilling in Alaska.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Redstate reports: Over the weekend we saw American songwriter and rapper Cee Lo Green headline a fundraiser for Barack Obama in Atlanta. Never mind the fact that the Left continues to lecture us about civility in the midst of Green singing the unedited version of his song, “Fu*** You,” while flipping off the crowd. The presence of this popular artist headlining an Obama rally shows once again how the Hollywood elite will try to sell President Obama to us in 2012 just like they did in 2008.
Fox News reports: Bristol Palin, the daughter of former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, on Sunday asked President Obama to call her about some long-standing insults, just like he did after conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh recently called law student Sandra Fluke a slut.
But three days later, the 21-year-old Palin appears still to be waiting by the phone.
"Dear President Obama, you don't know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it," Palin wrote on Bristol's Blog. "You explained to reporters that you called (Fluke) because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you didn't want them to think it was OK for men to treat them that way. ... Now that you're in office, it seems you're only willing to defend certain women."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Questions Fox News reports: As to being commanded to give your Facebook password to a prospective employer, the case of Justin Bassett presents questions which have been raised about the legality of the practice, which is also the focus of proposed legislation in Illinois and Maryland that would forbid public agencies from asking for access to social networks.
The Blade reports: Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished “State Defense Forces.” These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”
Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces. In essence, the Governors would have “de facto control” of the United States.
The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas. Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.” Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies and has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel. Governor Perry has declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas. Governor Perry further recently stated: “If Barack Obama’s Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”
U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) introduced legislation this week to protect the rights of American gun owners from being undermined by a United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Second Amendment Sovereignty Act, S.2205, would prohibit the Obama Administration from using the “voice, vote, and influence” of the United States during Arms Trade Treaty negotiations to restrict in any way the Second Amendment rights of U.S. citizens, including regulation of civilian firearms and ammunition.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Reuters reports: The justices unanimously rejected the government's position that individuals or companies must first fail to comply with an EPA order and face potentially costly enforcement action before a court can review the case.
The opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia was a victory for an Idaho couple who challenged a 2007 EPA order that required them to restore a wetland they had filled with dirt and rock as they began to build a new vacation home near Priest Lake. They were also told to stop construction on the home.

Glenn Beck reveals: Vice President Joe Biden recently made the most audacious statement most Americans have heard in 500 years by claiming that the Obama Administration’s plan to kill Osama bin Laden was the most audacious decision in the past half a millenium.
Given everything that has happened in the last 500 years, (you know, like the founding of the United States of America), it’s a bit of an understatement to say that Glenn, Pat, and Stu slightly disagreed with the Vice President on his claim.
“It blows away the Normandy invasion,” Pat joked. “It blows away at Inchon when we stopped the Korean War the Korean invasion. Crossing the Delaware was nothing”
The mocking continued as they began listing some of the historic moments that have occurred in the last 500 year: NASA landing on the moon, Ponce D ’Leon discovering the Turks and Caicos Islands, D Day, and countless others.
Expose Obama writes: Individuals and member organizations of the American media were threatened with FTC and FCC investigation if information gathered by Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse concerning the forgery of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate were passed on to the American public.
It was Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo who made this stunning revelation,stating “During our investigation,we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs.”
And Jerome Corsi,author of “Where’s the birth certificate,” the book whose imminent publication was responsible for forcing Barack Obama to quickly create and place the fraudulent long form birth certificate on the White House web site,has said that “Testimony is being developed that the White House is intimidating,in a systematic way,the mainstream media and if any broadcasters dare go into this birther story,they’re going to risk FCC investigations… people are going to have careers ruined… thrown off the air.”
Zullo went on to say the threats actually caused some individuals to “…quit their positions over safety concerns for their families.”
( – Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D.-Ill.),a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee which has oversight over the Affordable Care Act (AKA “Obamacare”),said Monday that a new Obamacare regulation announced on Friday afternoon that requires all student health insurance plans to offer college women free sterilizations does not mean the government is “promoting sterilization.” [Have you ever once heard of a college age girl seeking to be sterilized?  It is time to recall that the original purpose of the Planned Parenthood founder was to limit births to the black and the poor.]
KFOR News reports: The President is scheduled to speak in Payne County this Thursday morning. It may be rural Oklahoma, but when it comes to pipelines, it's the Capitol. The President is expected to talk about energy, though many in that industry are not impressed. They are even planning to protest his visit, calling it a political ploy more than a genuine interest.
Mike Cantrell with the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance says, "For the last three years he's been anti-fossil fuels."
Mickey Thompson, an energy industry expert and political analyst, says, "He calls our industry an industry of the past and they'd like us to go away."
The President is expected to mention his support for a pipeline running from Payne County to the gulf; it's the southern end of the “Keystone XL Pipeline.”
Industry experts say while his support for the southern end is welcome, it's not needed.
They build pipelines in the country all the time without needing presidential approval.
The President's "green light" is only needed for approximately 50 feet on the northern end of the pipeline; that segment would cross the Canadian border.,0,6801959.story
Canada Free Press: Over the weekend I received an email from my local TEA Party Director that Barack Hussein Obama would fly into Carlsbad, NM airport on Wednesday 21 March, in order to “make an appearance at the South Eastern NM oilfields.”  However, apparently after hearing that an immediate anti-Obama rally had been planned, Obama and his entourage changed the landing location to Roswell, NM… a city 77 miles from Carlsbad.
When the US Secret Service discovered that the enterprising group of our Southeast New Mexico Patriots had, also, switched their plans and would drive to Roswell to engage in peaceful and Constitutionally allowed dissent against the Obama policies of the destruction of the United States of America, the SS began to put their respective feet down.  First, the SS made a strong request that the anti-Obama rally not occur…at all.  When the TEA Party members advised them that they still planned to do so, it was announced that the main road (Earl Cummings Loop) into and out of the Roswell airport would be closed.
In other words, ONLY the planned Obama sycophants, adherents and Adoration Groups will be allowed in…all others no longer have any free speech.
Note:  Considering Obama’s recent “Executive Order—National Defense Resources Preparedness,” which was changed and vastly expanded to allow him to seize ALL US resources—including those of private citizens—this latest shut down of free speech shouldn’t come as a real surprise.
Star Tribune reveals: When Justin Bassett interviewed for a new job, he expected the usual questions about experience and references. So he was astonished when the interviewer asked for something else: his Facebook username and password.
Bassett, a New York City statistician, had just finished answering a few character questions when the interviewer turned to her computer to search for his Facebook page. But she couldn't see his private profile. She turned back and asked him to hand over his login information.
Questions have been raised about the legality of the practice, which is also the focus of proposed legislation in Illinois and Maryland that would forbid public agencies from asking for access to social networks.
Until last year, the city of Bozeman, Mont., had a long-standing policy of asking job applicants for passwords to their email addresses, social-networking websites and other online accounts.
Commentary Magazine writes: A conservative group calling itself American Doctors for Truth is launching a new ad campaign in Florida and Texas tomorrow that’s sure to get some attention. Mirroring the controversial liberal ad last year that showed Rep. Paul Ryan shoving an old woman in a wheelchair off a cliff, this one has President Obama pushing the wheelchair instead. Over the top? Absolutely, but that’s clearly the point.

Meanwhile, Personal Liberty reveals Michigan's idea: Democratic lawmakers in Michigan, it seems, have taken the message of youthful 99 percenters to heart, their answer to the “everything should be free” crowd: How does free college tuition sound?
With a plan that teeters on being nothing more than public school for grown-ups, the lawmakers hope to raise $1.8 billion to pay for every student in Michigan to attend a two- or four-year college. The proposal would make every Michigan high school student eligible for a grant of $9,500 per year for educational purposes upon graduation for up to four years, according to CBS Detroit.
As the legislators look at ways to provide free education for students in the State, some cities such as Detroit, where economic distress has become the norm, are cutting back on basic public services. Police in the city recently unveiled a plan to restructure 911 services and advised residents not to call unless they are certain they will otherwise lose their life.

Wis. High School Students Drown Out Pro-Union Protesters With Chants of ‘Stand With Walker’

Usually when the media talks about high school kids at the Wisconsin Capitol it’s been about teachers bringing students to protest Wis. Gov. Scott Walker and his budget cuts. But we have some different news to bring you today: during a visit to the Capitol last Thursday, some Wisconsin high school students decided to fight back against the anti-Walker sentiment they were witnessing during an impromptu visit.
Pro-union protesters performing a sing-a-long in the Wis. state Capitol.
In short, students from Sheboygan Lutheran High School decided to stop by the rotunda in Madison while in town for the state high school basketball playoffs. While there, they witnessed protesters signing about unions and solidarity. So they decided to drown them out with pro-walker chants.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says his upcoming recall election is a “Waterloo” moment for national unions that will “invest everything possible to try and take me out to send a message.” ...
Walker said his recall election is about more than just the future of Wisconsin for the national unions — it’s a message to any other elected official who would try to tackle collective bargaining and other controversial reforms.
American Thinker writes: The New York prosecutor whom [Tawana] Brawley accused of being one of her rapists sued Brawley and Sharpton for defamation and won.  And yet, Sharpton still says the Brawley incident happened.
The Tawana Brawley hoax confirms that truth and fair play are irrelevant in Sharpton's continuing quest to stir the pot of racial hate to bludgeon white America and instill anger in black America for political gain.  How sickening.
Sharpton was selected by the left as black America's mouthpiece because his political agenda is in solidarity with their hate-America Progressive movement. 
As an American who happens to be black, I am outraged. The left's selection of Sharpton as our spokesperson confirms their low opinion of black America, of our sense of morality, honor, and decency.  The left (Democrats, mainstream media, and Obama) continue to tell black America, by their actions, how little they think of us.  They ignore or demonize highly successful, articulate, America-loving black conservatives while elevating lying, America-hating race-baiters.
In 2010, President Obama asked Sharpton to be Obama's ambassador to the black community.  Obama instructed Sharpton to tell black leaders to chill out and stop saying his economic policy failed to help black communities hit hard by the downturn.
The foundation of Democrat politics is dealing with Americans as monolithic voting blocs.  I take offense to Obama acting as if black America were a huge tribe, taking marching orders from Chief Sharpton.  I am an American who happens to be black.  I think for myself.
Note the tried-and-true Democrat trick.  They lie to rally women by claiming that Republicans hate them.  Then Democrats say vote for us to protect you.
Sharpton's function is to lie to blacks, to keep them fired up hating Republicans, the rich, conservatives, and the Tea Party.  The left says "conservative" is code for racist whites.  Such rhetoric promotes racial hatred.  [If you are unfamiliar with Sharpton's role in the Tawana Brawley case, do go to this article to understand just what this man is all about.] Read more:
The Blaze reports: “Drones are coming to America to a police department near you.” 
The technology is useful, but poses significant privacy risks.”Drones have very powerful cameras attached to them,” Crump says, “they can see a lot more than the naked eye.” In fact, they can even see through walls with FLIR thermal imaging technology.
Crump believes one of the most alarming prospects is that police drones won’t just have cameras on them, but will also be armed with non-lethal weapons. As can be seen in these photos from Vanguard Defense Industries, the Shadowhawk platform is sturdy enough to be fitted with a variety of “less lethal” munitions.
Shadowhawk drones armed with an array of non-lethal force options–including impact rounds, chemical munition rounds, and tasers– could save lives in McDaniel’s opinion.

Judge Napolitano opines: The First Amendment to the Constitution prohibits the government from infringing upon the freedom of speech, the freedom of association and the freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Last week, President Obama signed into law the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011. This law permits Secret Service agents to designate any place they wish as a place where free speech, association and petition of the government are prohibited. And it permits the Secret Service to make these determinations based on the content of speech.
Thus, federal agents whose work is to protect public officials and their friends may prohibit the speech and the gatherings of folks who disagree with those officials or permit the speech and the gatherings of those who would praise them, even though the First Amendment condemns content-based speech discrimination by the government. The new law also provides that anyone who gathers in a "restricted" area may be prosecuted. And because the statute does not require the government to prove intent, a person accidentally in a restricted area can be charged and prosecuted, as well.
[As Judge Napolitano explains, this abridges our rights of association, our right to redress the government for grievances, establishes NO-free-speech-zones, and gives to the Secret Service the power to arrest and bring felony charges to peaceful protesters.  Since the President is given the power to give Secret Service protection to anyone of HIS choosing, such as his campaign manager or his Press Secretary, anyone disagreeing with them is subject to the whims of the Secret Service.]
This abominable legislation enjoyed overwhelming support from both political parties in Congress because the establishment loves power, fears dissent and hates inconvenience, and it doesn't give a damn about the Constitution. It passed the Senate by unanimous consent, and only three members of the House voted against it. And the president signed it in secret. It is more typical of contemporary China than America. It is more George III than George Washington.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- reports: The Secretary of Labor, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of other agencies, as deemed appropriate by the Secretary of Labor, shall: [Some are fearful that especially with THIS President in place, with his agenda of totally transforming America, this rewrite of former law meant to add the new Department of Homeland Security will give the President all the law he needs to declare Martial Law.  It sure seems that a malevolent President could take this law and run with it.]

Daily Caller writes: The Obama administration moved forward Friday afternoon in implementing the controversial contraception rule, saying that student health insurance plans must cover preventive services.
After a month of intense debate, the administration finally put the rule in writing Friday and asked the public to comment on the proposed rule for the next 90 days.
People wishing to comment on the rule should visit and follow the instructions under the “More Search Options” tab.
Conservative Catholics pushed back against the contraception rule this week, but the White House indicated that its decision is final, and that Obama has no intention of talking or negotiating with the Catholic bishops challenging the regulation. The administration faces multiple lawsuits, which could reach the Supreme Court.  [Look for more regulations, as the Secretary of Health and Human Services, under Obamacare, has the right to rule in whatever way she deems right - with no authority for Congress to overrule.]

The Hill reports: Several Senate Democrats up for reelection tell The Hill they haven't ruled out bucking President Obama by voting to repeal the health law's cost-control board.
The House is expected to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board next week, putting pressure on the Senate to follow suit. While the bill has broad bipartisan support in the House, no Senate Democrats have so far signed onto repeal legislation despite coming under increasing pressure to do so.
We're looking at it, let's put it that way," said Sen. Joe Machin (D-W.Va.). "We'll weigh the pros and cons" if the bill hits the floor.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), another conservative Democrat in a tight race, said via a spokesman that she would take a  "hard look" at the proposal if it ever came before the Senate.
Senators are also hearing from a wide array of powerful stakeholder groups, including the American Medical Association and the American Hospital Association, that are lobbying hard to get the board nixed.
The intense lobbying is putting Obama's deficit-cutting efforts at risk. The IPAB is one of the few provisions of the healthcare reform law that has the potential to cut federal healthcare spending, by recommending cuts to Medicare provider payments if costs start to grow too fast.
American Thinker opines: The left wants you to despair.  It is part of their game plan and a partial explanation for why President Obama has been throwing so many awful, intolerable new offensives our way.  From demanding that Catholics pay for abortion services to offering our most critical military secrets to our enemies, his goal is not merely to destroy this country, but to disable our resistance with an overwhelming string of demoralizing offensives.  And just when we start to get a handle on one of them, he initiates another ten.
But despair never won any battle.  Not a single one.  So don't despair.  It is a useless emotion, and a deliberate trap set by your enemies.  Take up the gauntlet and fight on with renewed enthusiasm, because the worm is turning.
There is not a better example of this right now than the state of Maryland.  Not only do endlessly corrupt Governor Martin O'Malley (Obama's Mini-Me) and the state legislature endorse criminality with their Sanctuary policies, but they fund it through the illegal aliens' ACORN, CASA de Maryland, and other similar groups.
To top it off, last December O'Malley signed off on PlanMaryland, an executive order enacting a statewide planning document mandating Agenda 21 "smart" growth policies.  This destructive Plan was publicly opposed by eighteen of Maryland's 23 counties.  Baltimore City was all for it, of course.
Their redistricting efforts angered both Republicans and Democrats.  Their pandering to illegals has infuriated minorities, including legal immigrants, because it is costing them jobs.  Fully 30 percent of DREAM Act repeal petitions were signed by Democrats.

Front Page Magazine opines: Americans, unlike Americans of yesteryear, have become timid and, as such, come to accept all manner of intrusive governmental acts. Can you imagine what a rugged American, such as one portrayed by John Wayne, would have done to a government tyrant who confiscated his daughter’s lunch or facilitated her abortion without his permission?
Seeing the compliant nature of smokers, they’ve moved to ban smoking on beaches, in parks and on sidewalks in some cities. Now they’re calling for higher health insurance premiums for smokers. Had the tobacco zealots demanded their full agenda when they started out, they would not have achieved anything.
Using the anti-tobacco crusade as their template and finding Americans so compliant, zealots and would-be tyrants are extending their agenda.
Because Americans are so compliant and willing to suffer silently at the gasoline pump, the Obama administration is willing to press on as handmaidens of environmental extremists who want to halt the exploration of our country’s vast oil supplies, which are estimated to be triple those of Saudi Arabia.
Fox News reports: An Indiana congressman is looking into possible "misinterpretation" of federal guidelines after a local food pantry was cut off from federal aid for asking clients to pray.
AZ Central reports: The Arizona Senate has approved a measure requiring a drug test for everyone applying for unemployment benefits.
The bill also asks the Department of Economic Security, which administers unemployment benefits, to set up a random drug testing system. Anyone who fails either an initial or random test would be ineligible for benefits for a period of time.
Expose Obama writes: In a display of the arrogance of power for which the left have become so well known,Democrat El Paso Mayor John Cook decided not only to overrule the results of a 2010 ballot decision,he is hoping to jail those who dared circulate a recall petition in response to his contempt for the will of the voters.
By a 55-45 margin,El Paso voters passed the ballot proposition which stated:“The city of El Paso endorses traditional family values by making health benefits available only to city employees and their legal spouse and dependent children.”
And the people’s recall initiative succeeded as,with the required number of signatures and necessary approval of Governor Rick Perry,a new election was scheduled for April of this year.
Naturally,Mayor Cook went to court,filing suit against Brown and those who worked on the recall petitions. After all,should the wishes of simpleton voters actually begin to take precedence over the will of those who know what is best—that is,Democrat politicians– the ramifications for the agenda of the left would be disastrous!
But Judge Javier Alvarez ruled in favor of Brown and the people of El Paso,stating that he did not believe it proper for a judge to overrule the expressed will of the people at the ballot box.

Pat Dollard reports: The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 72% of Likely U.S. Voters believe voters should be required to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote. That’s in line with findings from December but remains down slightly from the 75% to 82% of voters who have supported a photo ID voting requirement in surveys since June 2006. Only 22% are opposed to the photo ID requirement. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Expose Obama writes:  The proposed Texas law and a similar South Carolina statute rejected by the DOJ last year were both victims of Eric Holder’s deliberately disingenuous use of the 1973 Voting Rights Act,which requires states or areas with “a history of voting discrimination” to have proposed changes to their voting laws “pre-approved” by the federal government.

And just as it had in the case of South Carolina,the DOJ barred the revision to the Texas law by completely ignoring a decision of the United States Supreme Court.
In 2008,the Supreme Court ruled the newly enacted State of Indiana statute requiring all who come to the polls to present a state issued,picture ID as legal and constitutional.
The Right Scoop writes: Perry defended Texas’ right to institute a voter ID law, saying they’ve had several cases of fraud problems that a voter ID would cure. He also suggested he can only surmise that those opposed to the law must only want to win elections by fraudulent means.
And when it comes to beating Eric Holder and the DOJ, he says that he’s ready to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court, who he notes has already ruled in favor of states implementing voter ID laws.

Wyoming News reports: Fear - and gun sales - are up.

At least that's what gun store owners in the Capital City are saying when they talk about the rising numbers of sales here and across the U.S.

Gun owners are stocking up on ammo and a variety of guns in a rush that local retailers haven't seen since President Barack Obama was elected. In the wake of the 2008 election, prices soared as the availability of weapons and ammo shrank.
