NEWS THAT SHOULD MAKE YOU MAD!: Barbour says Obama cheers for higher gas prices, # Philly abortion doc may face death sentence (GOOD!), # Mosques Flourish in America; Churches Perish in Muslim World

1.  Mosques Flourish in America; Churches Perish in Muslim World

As Muslims prepare to erect a mega-mosque near the site of the 9/11 atrocities, it is well to reflect that the sort of tolerance, or indifference, that allows them to do so is far from reciprocated to churches in the Muslim world. I speak not of Islamist attacks against churches — such as the New Year’s Eve attack in Egypt that killed 21 Christians; or when jihadists stormed a church in Iraq, butchering over 50 Christians;  or Christmas Eve attacks on churches in Nigeria and the Philippines. Nor am I referring to state-sanctioned hostility by Islamist regimes, such as Iran’s recent “round up” of Christians.

2.  Philly abortion doc may face death sentence

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — .Prosecutors notified a Philadelphia doctor charged with killing a patient and seven babies at his abortion clinic that they intend to pursue the death penalty against him.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 70, ran a filthy West Philadelphia medical practice that served as a pill mill by day and an abortion mill by night, a grand jury concluded in January after a two-year investigation.

3.  Put the REINS on EPA

The “Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny” Act could put the kibosh on the EPA’s greenhouse regulatory surge.

EPA’s end-run around democracy — the agency’s hijacking of climate policy via the backdoor of Clean Air Act regulations — is meeting stiff resistance on Capitol Hill.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee has already held a hearing on the Energy Tax Prevention Act, which would overturn EPA’s Endangerment Rule and an assortment of related rules imposing Clean Air Act permitting requirements on power plants, refineries, and other emitters of greenhouse gases. Passing the bill — sponsored by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), and Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY) — is reportedly a top priority of House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) have also introduced the “Defending America’s Affordable Energy and Jobs Act.” This even stronger legislation would prohibit all agencies from “legislating’”climate policy under any existing statute, none of which was ever designed or intended for that purpose.

4.  Pastor: Obama’s actions ‘delusional’ and tyrannical

A conservative black pastor is calling for the church and church leadership to rise up and fight against the Obama administration’s decision to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court.

Two federal courts have ruled DOMA unconstitutional. That means the ruling will stand in those circuit districts if no one steps up to the plate to defend that law — and with Barack Obama’s decision last week, that means the Justice Department and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have backed away from the plate.

The move by the White House prompted the leader of a coalition of 34,000 black churches to state that the president “has violated the Christian faith” by failing to uphold Jesus’ teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman. Rev. Anthony Evans, head of the National Black Church Initiative, also stated black churches must “reassess their extraordinary support” for Obama.

5.  Middle East madness makes energy winning issue for the Republicans

March 1, 2011 – 10:08 pm – by Roger L Simon

The New York Times’ Michael D. Shear engaged in some predictable wishful thinking on the Caucus blog Tuesday with Rising Gas Prices Pose Risks for 2012 Contenders:

At the height of the 2008 presidential campaign, operatives for Senator John McCain of Arizona sent reporters covering Senator Barack Obama tire gauges meant to mock Mr. Obama’s suggestion that people could save on gasoline by inflating their tires properly.

With gas prices then heading toward $4 a gallon, the Democratic National Committee returned the favor, sending reporters a basket of “Exxon-McCain ‘08″ goodies, including a black stress ball shaped like an oil barrel.

6.  Barbour says Obama cheers for higher gas prices

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a potential Republican presidential contender, accused the Obama administration Wednesday of favoring a run-up in gas prices to prod consumers to buy more fuel-efficient cars.

Obama administration officials rejected the charge, saying they view rising gasoline prices as bad for average Americans and the economic recovery.

Barbour suggested that President Barack Obama wants to see higher energy taxes that would lead to more expensive gasoline. But his comments came amid a spike in gas prices that has been primarily driven by unrest in the Middle East, particularly Libya, that has diminished crude oil production. That, coupled with increased demand, has pushed prices to almost $3.39 per gallon, according to auto club AAA.
