The Presidency 
Obama demands more power – Barack Obama is demanding that Congress permanently give up its authority over raising the debt ceiling. He is demanding as a part of “negotiating” with the Congress, that a law be passed to allow him to increase the debt ceiling of the government at any time he deems it necessary. Giving this power to Obama will be “crossing the Rubicon” and there will be no return to congressional control of the Presidency. When Obama robs Peter to pay Paul, he can always count on the vote of Paul – This statement was obviously proven in the election of Barack Obama, who spent four years expanding the ranks of dependency by using every avenue of government possible, from food stamps to mortgage reductions.

Official submission to Islam – Round three of the “Istanbul Process” opens today, December 3, and runs through Wednesday, at Canada House, in London, hosted by the U.K. and Canada. The Istanbul Process is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s major transnational law initiative, undertaken in partnership with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It was established last year to “implement” measures against speech and expression that negatively “stereotype[s]” Islam and Muslims, with a particular emphasis on enacting them in the West.

Congress
America can’t survive the cure – For years I have referred to the Democrats as the Tax and Spend Party and the Republicans as the Borrow and Spend Party. It seems that they are now merging into the Tax and Borrow to Spend Party. All solutions coming from Washington are a disaster for the future generations of this nation. Cutting federal spending enough to eliminate the debt means massive job loss and a depression. Raising taxes to cover the huge spending deficits means massive job loss and recession. Continuing to borrow trillions of dollars each year means inflation that will eventually destroy the wealth of the nation causing massive job loss and recession.
Congress at a stand still – The debt crisis and the “fiscal cliff” have brought the Congress to a stand still. Virtually no action is being taken on important issues such as the deterioration of American power. Egypt having sentenced American citizens to die for blasphemy is being ignored, as is the continued threat to our ally Israel.
Prayer Caucus year in review – One of the few bright spots on Capitol Hill is the Prayer Caucus headed by Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA). During 2012 the Prayer Caucus opposed the removal of a reference to “God” from an Air Force logo; voted to add the D-day Prayer to the World War II Memorial; opposed efforts to remove a memorial cross honoring military veterans, and much more. Read the full review of the Prayer Caucus work in 2012 here.

Religion and Culture
Mark Twain on Islam and the Holy Land – Mark Twain as a young newspaperman reported from the Ottoman Empire on Islam and Sharia. His comments on Islam and the state of Islamic rule in Jerusalem would be considered “Islamophobia” today. Read his amazing quotes on Islam here.

International
An explanation of Egypt today –
Franklin Roosevelt summed up the situation in Egypt as it was during his time — and as it is today: “The real strength of the Nationalist movement in Egypt lay not with these Levantines of the café but with the mass of practically unchanged bigoted Moslems to whom the movement meant driving out the foreigner, plundering and slaying the local Christian, and a return to all the violence and corruption which festered under the old-style Moslem rule, whether Asiatic or African.” Read more
A world of jihad – A little less than every five hours, somewhere around the world a Muslim is carrying out a fatal jihadist attack. These are not the regular beatings and vandalism against Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but religion-oriented attacks in which someone dies at the hand of a member of the”religion of peace.” Read more
Life in prison for this? – The tyrannical owner of the Muslim media outlet Al Jazeera is Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar. Al Jazeera claims it is open to free expression, so free it has shown US soldiers being killed by IEDs. Yet the Emir had a young man in Qatar sentenced to life in prison for criticizing him in a poem. Read more. Demand that your cable provider remove Al Jazeera!
Turkey: Government war on freedom of press – The government of Prime Minister Erdogan has waged one of the world’s biggest crackdowns on press freedom in recent history. Authorities have imprisoned journalists on a mass scale on terrorism or anti-state charges, launched thousands of other criminal prosecutions on charges such as denigrating Turkishness. Read more
