Pro-abortion Group Circulating Pro-Kagan Talking Points

The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) is now distributing favorable talking points on Capitol Hill regarding Obama Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

Of course this comes as no surprise, given that she's been nominated by a pro-abortion President. But what is interesting is their attempt to "sell" Kagan as a mainstream judge, despite the fact that during her time in the Clinton White House she worked to find political cover for then President Clinton to veto Congress' ban on partial birth abortion.

(Via LifeNews):

"Elena Kagan's writings indicate a respect for women's freedom and privacy as defined by Roe v. Wade--and the writings are consistent with the pro-choice position adopted by the Clinton White House," NARAL says, according to the (Huffington) Post. "These writings show a mainstream view that the majority of Americans shares"... (READ MORE)

What's next, a warning label at the front door of the US National Archives?

Wilder Publications warns readers of its reprints of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense, the Articles of Confederation, and the Federalist Papers, among others, that "This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today"...

South Dakota Pastor to Test Freedom of Speech for Churches

A pastor in South Dakota is moving to challenge the ability of the federal government (via the IRS) to prevent churches from endorsing candidates (or pastors from doing so in the pulpit).

Reverend Wayne Williams of Liberty Baptist Tabernacle in Rapid City, South Dakota endorsed Republican State Senator Gordon Howie's bid for governor last month, specifically hoping to draw a challenge from the IRS so he could begin a legal challenge on the issue in federal court and produce a constitutional test case.

(Via the Washington Times):

At issue is an IRS regulation called the Johnson Amendment, enacted in 1954, that says that 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the section of the tax code under which most churches file, cannot endorse a specific political candidate and retain its nonprofit classification... (READ MORE)

Social Security Coming Up Short (Spending More Than it Takes In)

Although it's far from a surprise and has long been predicted, it's finally a reality: Social Security is now officially paying out more than it is taking in.

Of course, Social Security has taken in more than it has paid out pretty much since its inception...which would lead a normal person to think there's a big fat piggy bank just waiting to pay out all those benefits, right? Wrong. The truth is that the government has faithfully borrowed every dime of that surplus over the years and spent it on, well, everything.

Bruce Krasting looks at the public data on the Social Security "Trust Fund" and points out that the numbers are headed in the wrong direction...pointing out that this wasn't expected to happen for another five years or so... (READ MORE)
