The Stealth Plan to Silence Rush

Does President Barack Obama believe that the greatest threat to progress resides in Rush Limbaugh? Earlier this week while trying to sell his Trillion Dollar Debt Plan to Republican leaders, Obama said, “You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done.” Thankfully House Republicans listened to the hundreds of constituents calling their offices asking them to vote against the bill and not the guy who thinks he can buy their votes with a couple of cocktail and Super Bowl parties. Now we find out that Obama’s far left allies are upping the ante. The leftist umbrella organization American Untied for Change is pouring money into radio ads in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Nevada. The ads ask listeners, “Will you side with Obama or Rush Limbaugh?”

Clearly the left believe they can get Republicans to sacrifice their principles by demonizing and isolating Rush Limbaugh. So much for that new era of bipartisanship. But what if all of Obama’s old-school politics of division fails to win him any Republican votes? What is the next arrow in his political quiver?

FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell previewed what may be the left’s next line of attack at a speech to the Media Institute in Washington this Wednesday. McDowell warned that when the left comes to silence Rush and other Obama critics, they will not be dumb enough to try and do it under the label Fairness Doctrine: “That’s just Marketing 101: if your brand is controversial, make a new brand.” Multichannel News reports that McDowell even suggested that a stealth version of the doctrine may already be teed up at the FCC in the form of “Localism” rules which empower community advisory boards to help dictate local

A military judge threw a wrench yesterday into the Obama’s plan to suspend legal proceedings at Guantanamo Bay, denying the government’s request to delay the case of a detainee accused of planning the 2000 attack on the USS Cole.

Dozens, and potentially hundreds, of gas stations around California are choosing to shut down rather than comply with a state mandate that would require owners to purchase new equipment to reduce vapor emissions at the pump.

Despite President Obama’s promise that lobbyists “won’t find a job in my White House” at least a dozen former lobbyists have found top jobs in his administration.

While Obama tires to pass over $1 trillion in new deficit spending, and his Treasury Department warns it may need another $4 trillion, world leaders are beginning to complain that this unprecedented level of borrowing will drive up economic recovery killing interest rates worldwide.

Stimulus Bill Would Give Payments to Illegal Aliens

WASHINGTON – The $800 billion-plus economic stimulus measure making its way through Congress could steer government checks to illegal immigrants…

Undocumented immigrants who are not eligible for a Social Security number can file tax returns with an alternative number. A House-passed version of the economic recovery bill and one making its way through the Senate would allow anyone with such a number, called an individual taxpayer identification number, to qualify for the tax credits.

Pray for government waste and spending to become wise and not to be used to buy votes and influence for re-election. A lot of this spending is to try and entrench the politicians into a place of greater re-election security. It needs to stop. We are spending ourselves into a greater and greater crisis.

Why Mr. Obama is not Lincoln… but could be

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

As you know, President Barack Obama has openly drawn a comparison between himself and Abraham Lincoln.

We discussed this issue on our new Liberty Live radio show this week and one of our guests offered what I thought was a fascinating analysis.

Barack Obama is not Abraham Lincoln, but he
could be!

Obama’s presidency is certainly the fruit of Lincoln’s work. But to be like Lincoln, Obama would have to go against some of his liberal constituents to champion a group that has been denied their inalienable rights.

So, how could Obama be like Lincoln?

By championing the rights of the unborn — a group that has been stripped of all legal rights and discarded, literally, as human waste by our society.

If Barack Obama wants to be Lincoln, then he must
stand for the unborn. And the first step is to stop his
radical abortion agenda.

Sadly, President Obama is not off to a good start! Within moments of his swearing in, his staff posted his 100% abortion agenda on the new White House web site.

He has already signed an Executive Order overruling the Mexico City policy. This means that he has forced you and I to fund abortion in foreign countries. Outrageous!

We have a lot more work to do.

+ + Help me deliver 50,000 petitions to President Obama

Already, over 40,000 friends of Liberty Counsel have signed our petition opposing Obama’s radical abortion agenda.

I want to deliver 50,000 petitions to the White House in the next two weeks, if possible. Please take a moment right now to sign the petition:

http://www.grassfire.net/r.asp?u=15906&RID=18689055

I have instructed my staff to schedule the delivery as soon as we reach the 50,000 mark. How long will that take? That depends on how seriously friends like you take up this cause to challenge President Obama on his abortion agenda.

No, Barack Obama is not Abraham Lincoln… but he could be remembered for championing a great, persecuted minority that currently has NO legal rights — America’s unborn.

Please help me send this message to President Obama as soon as possible.
I await your response.

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
Liberty Counsel

P.S. Again, I have instructed my staff to hold the petitions until we reach the 50,000 goal. You can help us reach that goal in the next 24 hours. Please sign and then alert your friends.

If you read the headlines, you would believe that every working economist agrees this massive government program is necessary. Not true.

If you read the headlines, you would believe that every working economist agrees this massive government program is necessary. Not true.

“Notwithstanding reports that all economists are now Keynesians,” reads a manifesto published by the Cato Institute, “and that we all support a big increase in the burden of government, we the undersigned do not believe that more government spending is a way to improve economic performance. More government spending by Hoover and Roosevelt did not pull the United States economy out of the Great Depression in the 1930s. More government spending did not solve Japan’s ‘lost decade’ in the 1990s. As such, it is a triumph of hope over experience to believe that more government spending will help the U.S. today. To improve the economy, policymakers should focus on reforms that remove impediments to work, saving, investment and production. Lower tax rates and a reduction in the burden of government are the best ways of using fiscal policy to boost growth.”The Cato preamble is signed by 200 economists…

Obama’s ‘Blue Wall’ Locks in Democratic Gains

Democrats are leveraging the nation’s economic crisis and the aura of inaugural goodwill to build a “blue political wall” — new constituencies dependent on expanding government programs — that could lock in 2008 Democratic political gains for decades to come.

Obama Plans to Use Tax Dollars to Fund Abortions Overseas

Obama Plans to Use Tax Dollars to Fund Abortions Overseas

U.S. taxpayers soon may be forced to hand their money over to international groups that promote or perform abortions.

Fox News reports President Barack Obama will reverse the “Mexico City Policy” by executive order Thursday, the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling.
Seventy-seven members of Congress have asked Obama to keep the policy in place.
“In these difficult economic times, the American people would not want us funding groups that are trying to export abortion around the world,” their letter reads.

The policy, which prevents U.S. funds from supporting abortion overseas, was put in place by President Ronald Reagan, reversed by President Bill Clinton and reinstated by President George W. Bush.

FOR MORE INFORMATIONSen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., is calling on the president to protect the preborn.
