* Waste & Fraud of Obama's "Stimulus" Money
"A grant of $10 million in Wyoming produced zero jobs, no results, and plush salaries." Read the infuriating details in this National Review article by Andrew Stiles , "Surprise: Stimulus Money Misspent."
* Religious Freedom Targeted
President [of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation] Mikey Weinstein and others from his organization met privately with Pentagon officials on April 23. He said U.S. troops who proselytize are guilty of sedition and treason and should be punished – by the hundreds if necessary – to stave off what he called a “tidal wave of fundamentalists.”
“Someone needs to be punished for this,” Weinstein told Fox News. “Until the Air Force or Army or Navy or Marine Corps punishes a member of the military for unconstitutional religious proselytizing and oppression, we will never have the ability to stop this horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior.”
Huh? Christians being court-martialed for sharing their faith? And simple evangelism being described as "horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior?" Yikes. Read more at "Religious Groups Fear Christian Purge From Military" by Todd Starnes.

* Another Abortionist "Stung," Another Media Blackout
The Washington Post reported something surprising on April 29 -- a hidden-camera expose by pro-life advocates. On the front page of the Metro section, the Post reported how a veteran D.C. abortion doctor named Cesare Santangelo told a 24-week pregnant woman that in the unlikely event that an abortion resulted in a live birth, "we would not help it."
"(T)echnically, you know, legally, we would be obligated to help it, you know, to survive, but it probably wouldn't," he said in a way to reassure the woman who was working for the undercover group Live Action.
The legal technicality is the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002, to insure that that any baby "mistakenly" born during an abortion has all the rights of any other living, breathing human. When it passed and was signed by President Bush, the networks also completely censored that.
It tells you something about the precarious nature of America's soul that such a law even needs to exist.
Live Action also released an expose of another abortion clinic, Dr. Emily's Women's Health Center in the Bronx...
