National Endowment for Democracy

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) was created by the Reagan administration in the early 1980s to push democratic reforms and roll back Soviet influence in various parts of the globe. In his 1983 speech inaugurating NED, President Ronald Reagan said: "I just decided that this nation, with its heritage of Yankee traders, ought to do a little selling of the principles of democracy."[1]

The private, congressionally funded NED has been a controversial tool in U.S. foreign policy because of its support of efforts to overthrow foreign governments.

Chris Nogy, the husband of a Republican Party official in Arkansas, suggested it was a shame that voters couldn't just threaten to shoot GOP state legislators who voted for the state's Medicaid expansion.
In an essay titled "Scathing" in the April edition of the Benton County Republican Party newsletter, Nogy slammed those Republican lawmakers who voted last week to approve Medicaid expansion and argued that the Second Amendment offered one way to handle the situation...

It proves beyond any doubt that it is the HIGH COSTS of health care that is the problem. Most costs are ABSOLUTELY NOT NECESSARY. The costs are not producing outcomes and results equivalent to those costs.
Obamacare is NOT the solution to the health care problem. It is the health care system itself.
The GOP was right. LOWER THE COSTS of health care!!!

they're in a mood this morning...

....I am deeply, deeply disturbed by the games being played by pro-immigration advocates on the right, including staff in Senator Marco Rubio’s office, Grover Norquist, and others.

They are attacking other conservatives who disagree with them as racists, slavery supporters, bigots, haters, baby killers, un-Christian, etc. They are waging a coordinated attack between Senator Rubio’s office and others against conservative stalwarts like the Heritage Foundation and Jim DeMint.

They are proposing a plan that thus far appears to be unworkable, is wholly too complicated, and is a distraction from issues that we could all agree on in the name of getting a plan acceptable to Democrats. In the process, their attacks on conservatives designed to intimidate, browbeat, and silence them opens old wounds and does exactly what the Democrats hoped to do — divide the right and play directly to the fears of Hispanic voters who have for so long seen political leaders of both parties demagogue the issue.

Many of the people who want an immigration solution frankly could care less about hispanic voters. They see this as an issue the GOP has to get right on and they will do whatever it takes to get right on the issue. They are playing political games. Seeing self-styled conservatives and libertarians trying to pass any legislation that is labeled “comprehensive” should always be a red flag.

I have seen friends paint others as racists, as sympathizers to abortion advocates, and as haters all to try to steam roll through their preferred policy solution. I have seen good conservative organizations attacked and lumped in with fringe groups. I have seen mainstream groups characterized as fringe. I have seen people whore their faith in the name of immigration reform.

I have seen shameful things. What will be the cost paid in these attacks? These are not liberals attacking, but other members of the center-right. They now claim that maybe Boston would not have happened had this bill been passed or, at worst, at least with this bill millions of new immigrations coming into the country will be known instead of unknown. I’m sure the dead eight year old and his family will be consoled by that.

Freedom House
As of mid-2011, Freedom House’s executive director was David Kramer, a former assistant secretary of state during the George W. Bush presidency whose experience includes working as a fellow for the Project for the New American Century and the German Marshall Fund. Chair of the board of trustees was William H. Taft IV, a professor at Stanford Law School and deputy secretary of defense in the second Ronald Reagan administration.
Freedom House touts itself as having a "bipartisan character," and a great extent this is reflected in its board of trustees. However, as of mid-2011, the board included a number of people who have been associated with rightist advocacy endeavors....http://rightweb.i rc-online.org/profile/profile/ Freedom_House

A special anti-terror court has sentenced three Saudis to six years in jail each for a plot to kill US nationals at the height of a campaign of Al-Qaeda attacks in the kingdom between 2003 and 2006, a witness said.

The court in Riyadh issued its ruling late on Sunday, said a witness at the hearing during which two other men were acquitted.

The three convicted were found guilty of having “supported the actions of the deviant group and planned the assassination of seven Americans in the kingdom,” the court ruled, using the official term to designate Al-Qaeda.

It said they also planned to enter Iraq “to carry out terrorist acts”.

Saudi courts started in July 2011 to try hundreds of suspects for the wave of Al-Qaeda attacks which rocked the country from 2003 until 2006 when authorities launched a massive campaign of arrests targeting the jihadist network.

Around 3,000 suspects are being tried or due to go on trial, according to Saudi authorities.
