War Turned Backwards

Dear Mr. Terrorist

SO, YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE WORKING FOR....

by Gordon Duff, Staff Writer

Hello and Happy New Year from an American friend.  I hope your new year is one that offers both health, spirtual enlightenment and an opportunity to learn what you have gotten yourself into before its too late.  Take a look at that man beside you, the one who will some day hand you a bomb and tell you to kill yourself and, maybe, dozens of women and children, many Muslims.  Are you really sure he is who he says he is?  Like the "Al Qaeda" leaders in Yemen, you know, the ones who Dick Cheney decided to release for some unknown reason, are you, maybe, taking orders from someone like this?

You remember Usama bin Laden, Sallahu Alayhi Wa Sallams, do you not?  Remember why he said he had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks?  He said the Koran would not allow it. Does not the Koran say this is sin?  Look at poor Abdulmutallab, sitting in a prison in Milan, Michigan.  How do you think he was helped thru airport after airport, all run by Israelis, put on a plane full of Muslims, men, women, families,  going back to their home in Detroit, Fi AmanAllah, with orders to blow it up?.

CEI Weekly: Looking Back on 2009 

>>In the News: A 2009 Recap

2009 has been noted in CEI's history as an important year in the fight for liberty. Among the events that occurred in 2009, such as the Waxman-Markey Cap and Trade bill,  the silencing of EPA climate change skeptic, Alan Carlin, and the Supreme Court case against Sarbanes Oxley,

2009 was also a significant year in terms of events that happened in the past. 2009 was the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and also the 25th anniversary of the founding of CEI. But the best is yet to come as CEI's work becomes more recognized and, thus, reaches more readers. This is evidenced in one example as CEI's William Yeatman's article on Copenhagen has been translated into Korean and is also published on Korean news site, Segye.com.

Is ObamaCare’s “Individual Mandate” Unconstitutional?

by Hans Bader

Obamacare is certainly controversial, with most Americans opposing it. It would reduce lifesaving medical innovation, raise many taxes, drive up insurance premiums and the deficit, break many campaign promises, and impose heavy burdens on state budgets. . . But bad policy is not synonymous with unconstitutionality. If the “individual mandate” is struck down, it will be because of Congress imposed it directly, rather than as a condition of states receiving federal funds, and clumsily drafted the penalties for the mandate in way that takes them outside the reach of its tax powers.

Michigan Senate not "FAIR" and it's a Good Thing

by Michelle Minton

The Michigan Senate recessed last week without passing the proposed insurance reforms that would, among other things, prevent insurers from using factors such as education level, occupation, credit scores, and would prevent them from setting rates without approval from the state’s insurance commissioner. The proposal which was passed in the House hopes to reduce Michigan’s exorbitant premiums which rank among the highest in the nation.

Say no to EFCA in 2010

by Ivan Osorio

The first calendar year of the Obama administration draws to a close with organized labor not achieving its top legislative priority: the horribly misnamed Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). That doesn’t mean that union-supported Democrats are going to stop trying. We should expect to see “compromise” proposals that replace EFCA’s most controversial provision, the “card check” provision that would effectively do away with secret balloting in union representation elections, with some form of “expedited” election process, or possibly take out card check and leave the rest of the bill intact.
