Six Months to Go Until The Largest Tax Hikes in History
They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves on January 1, 2011:
First Wave: Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief. Personal income tax rates will rise. Higher taxes on marriage and family. The return of the Death Tax. Higher tax rates on savers and investors.
Second Wave: Obamacare. There are over twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare.  Several will first go into effect on January 1, 2011.

A Hapless Administration
Obama’s energy czar, has stated publicly that new drilling regulations will probably drive all but the largest companies out of the Gulf. That seems to be just fine with Ms. Browner, but has she considered how many companies will fail and how many jobs will be lost? Browner’s reaction is typical of how out of touch, and how callous, the Obama administration has become.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is blocking certain websites from the federal agency’s computers, including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a “controversial opinion,” according to an internal email obtained by CBS News.

Why Kagan Is Unqualified — and Dangerous By Selwyn Duke

Kagan Dodges Question On Whether Catholic Recruiters Would Be Banned from Harvard – CNS
Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, who banned military recruiters from Harvard Law School’s career services office when she was dean of the school, declined to say whether she would have also banned the Catholic Church from recruiting on campus.

Is Elena Kagan Morally Blind?
Elena Kagan has now admitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee that as a Clinton lawyer in 1997, she fraudulently revised an official medical opinion by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Is this the person we want on the Supreme Court?

Could impending Prop 8 decision doom same-sex marriage?
No matter how Judge Walker rules in the Prop 8 suit, which is expected sometime this summer, the case is certain to be appealed to the federal Ninth Circuit and then to the Supreme Court. And therein lies the danger. If the current ideological makeup of the court doesn’t change by then, the victory that could come at the hands of Judge Walker could turn into a defeat in the Roberts Court.

NASA AND ISLAM (no kidding)

Former NASA Director Says Muslim Outreach Push ‘Deeply Flawed’
The former head of NASA on Tuesday described as “deeply flawed” the idea that the space exploration agency’s priority should be outreach to Muslim countries, after current Administrator Charles Bolden made that assertion in an interview last month.

Bolden created a firestorm after telling Al Jazeera last month that President Obama told him before he took the job  that he wanted him to do three things: inspire children to learn math and science, expand international relationships and “perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering.”

National Public Radio: Choosing Sides and Controlling the Terms Of the Debate With Our Money
Now, we have National Public Radio (NPR) lining up to support the pro-abortion side in the ongoing struggle over this issue. Managing Editor David Sweeney recently issued a memorandum to staff ordering them to use only the politically correct designations for the contending sides in the debate: abortion rights advocates is the approved way of referring to those who favor liberalized abortion; abortion rights opponents is the only way NPR will refer, from now on, to pro-lifers. 


An Out-of-Touch Ogre? The media’s mau-mauing of Bishop Thomas Olmsted By George Neumayr
Olmsted, needless to say, is the antithesis of a Borgia-era bishop. He has risked his comfort for the sake of thankless duty. He deserves praise for resisting the media’s mau-mauing and the Catholic left’s claimed monopoly on “compassion,” which never extends to the unborn child torn limb from limb.

A rebuke for Schönborn, a revival for Sodano By Phil Lawler
Never before, in more than 25 years of covering Catholic news, had I seen the Vatican administer a public rebuke to a cardinal. The facts that Cardinal Schönborn is one of the most prominent prelates in Europe, as well as a student, friend, and ally of the Pope, make the story all the more extraordinary.

In that fateful May session with reporters in Vienna, Cardinal Schönborn was driving home a point that most veteran Vatican reporters already understand: that during the pontificate of John Paul II, Cardinal Sodano was often at odds with then-Cardinal Ratzinger over the handling of sex-abuse complaints. The future Pontiff was pressing to root out the corruption, while the Secretary of State was defending the status quo. By criticizing Sodano, the Austrian prelate obviously intended to defend the Pope, especially in his handling of sex-abuse complaints. The move backfired badly.

While Rome Is Under Siege, the Cardinals Quarrel by Sandro Magister
But Benedict XVI is also aware of Schönborn’s flaws, the first of which is the inconsistency between what he thinks – completely in line with the pope – and what he says and does for attention and applause. Entrusting of the new organism to Archbishop Fisichella could reignite the controversies that tormented his presidency of the pontifical academy for life, because of a controversial article he published in “L’Osservatore Romano” in defense of a Brazilian girl who had been forced to have a double abortion: controversies that were not quelled even by a declaration by the congregation for the doctrine of the faith.

Cardinal Schonborn and the “rebuke”- Are the secular and Catholic press biased against him?

Another vicious, inaccurate, and contradictory New York Times  attack on Pope Benedict By Phil Lawler
Today’s New York Times, with another front-page attack on Pope Benedict XVI, erases any possible doubt that America’s most influential newspaper has declared an editorial jihad against this pontificate. Abandoning any sense of editorial balance, journalistic integrity, or even elementary logic, the Times  looses a 4,000-word barrage against the Pope: an indictment that is not supported even by the content of this appalling story.

Internet Safety 101: Protecting Your Kids
The Power of Pornography. “It is graphic,” Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, emphasized. “It is explicit. It is deviant. It’s aberrant. Kids are seeing content that no 12 or 13-year-old is mentally, psychologically, or emotionally prepared to deal with.”

Child psychiatrist Dr. W. Dean Belnap said pornography actually shuts down a part of the brain.
Dr. Judith Reisman – “Does it destroy them? Yes it does,” she continued. “Is it their faults? No, it’s our fault.” The pilot program in Virginia reached more than 5,000 adults. At least 95 percent of the participants surveyed said they felt motivated to implement measures to protect kids from the dangers in cyberspace.

The halcyon days of tax-free Internet shopping will, if Rep. Bill Delahunt gets his way, soon be coming to an abrupt end.
