Navy Seals Prosecution –
Sorry I have been remiss in reporting on this vital military issue – the unjust prosecution of our Navy Seals.
Posted March 13th, 2010 by USNavySeals
A key event took place Friday in the assault charges that were brought about against three Navy SEALs. In a previous post, we shared how the request for immunity of five potential witnesses who will give testimonies that will support Navy SEALs Matthew McCabe, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe was denied.
On Friday, however, Cmdr. Tierney Carlos, the military judge who is hearing the case against Julio Huertas, said that the witnesses will be able to provide testimony that may place the allegations brought by a guard who said he witnessed McCabe punch Abed in doubt. Carlos ruled that “not granting them immunity… is either an attempt to gain tactical advantage over the defense or showed the government was overreaching”….Continue Reading
States Stimulus Crutch –
This is a story you will be seeing a lot of in the months ahead. It also explains why Obama has been hoarding the bulk of stimulus money. Democrats want to prop up union dominated State governments until after 2010 elections.

Maryland GOP delegates’ plan would dig deep to balance budget, avoid future tax hikes

Maryland’s budget deficit is a long-term problem that requires a long-term solution. Over the past three years, the O’Malley/Brown administration has made little to no progress in addressing the state’s budget deficit.
Increased spending, a failed slots bill, the largest tax increase in our state’s history and federal bailouts make for a dismal track record. The Department of Legislative Services projects a cumulative deficit of more than $8 billion for the years 2012-2015 – $1,428 for every person in Maryland – yet Gov. Martin O’Malley has yet to offer a long-term plan to deal with this crisis. Next year, when federal stimulus funding runs out, the day of reckoning will arrive, and the taxpayers will be handed the bill. If we don’t reverse this trend, we are headed for yet another massive tax increase. …Continue Reading

‘How can you deny he’s affecting me?’

An attorney handling one of the appellate level challenges to Barack Obama’s occupancy of the White House – under the dispute that involves the Constitution’s demand presidents be a “natural born citizen” and Obama’s unwillingness to document that – says the most common reason judges have used for dismissing cases is just wrong.
Most of the dozens of cases that have been filed over Obama’s eligibility have been dismissed by judges who have cited a lack of “standing” on the part of the plaintiffs. In fact, the government’s most recent filing in the case being handled by Mario Apuzzo argues almost exclusively that it should be dismissed for that reason.
But Apuzzo, whose case is pending before the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and in which he will file a further brief within the next few days, says the federal standard for having standing – a concrete and particularized injury potential imminent for an individual – should be a no-brainer for judges.
“How can you deny he’s affecting me?” he asked during an interview with WND. “He wants to have terror trials in New York. He published the CIA interrogation techniques. On and on. He goes around bowing and doing all these different things. His statements we’re not a Christian nation; we’re one of the largest Muslim nations. It’s all there.” …Continue Reading

Says procedural move would hurt Congress
By Jay Fitzgerald

Even one of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s floor whips, U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, says a proposed parliamentary move to pass health-care reform would be “disingenuous” and harm the credibility of Congress.
In a sign of how tough it’s been for Pelosi to round up votes for the massive bill, Lynch – a South Boston Democrat who supported a House reform package last year – said he’ll probably vote against a key Senate version of the legislation, unless unexpected major changes are made soon.
Lynch, who serves as one of Pelosi’s key vote counters, said he also can’t support a proposed “deem and pass” procedure that would allow Democrats to vote to strip out controversial portions of the Senate bill and then “deem” that the entire package has passed without a second, direct vote….Continue Reading
If Democrats use dishonest method to pass this socialist takeover, there will be millions engaged to say hell no.

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho took the lead in a growing, nationwide fight against health care overhaul Wednesday when its governor became the first to sign a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance.
Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states….Continue Reading
I knew we would be able to count on Mark Levin!
From American Spectator:
By Jeffrey Lord on 3.18.10 @ 6:08AM
Not so fast.
Democrats poised to use the so-called “deem and pass” strategy to force through a health care bill will have to deal with Mark Levin first.
Levin, known to his fans as one of the most popular talk show hosts in the country, is also both a legal scholar and longtime president of the Landmark Legal Foundation, a nonprofit, public interest law firm A former chief of staff to Reagan Attorney General Edwin Meese III, Levin is the author of two New York Times bestselling books on the Constitution and the judiciary, the last, Liberty and Tyranny, at number one for a dozen weeks.
The lawsuit will name President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and “other relevant cabinet members” as defendants. Those cabinet members are Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Levin’s goal? To stop the government from “instituting this unconstitutional contrivance.” … Continue Reading

The CBO scoring of the House Demcare bill that the American people have not seen will be released this morning.
The poor number-crunchers have been working overtime as Speaker Pelosi and the Dems have re-jiggered and re-jiggered to meet farcical fiscal discipline goals. It’s Enron-style accounting and everyone knows it.
James Capretta at The Corner breaks it down:
The Washington Post reports today that CBO now says the latest version of the Democratic plan will no longer cut the deficit as the Democrats have claimed. That’s not surprising. To buy votes, they are upping the subsidies in the exchanges, expanding the Medicare prescription-drug benefit, delaying the Cadillac tax, and buying off countless members with other assorted and unseen deals (where are the C-SPAN cameras when you really need them?). Little wonder that even their phony deficit-reduction claims have now evaporated.
But the game is not over. Even now, they are going back to CBO with another bag full of tricks….
