Passports for Sale
By David C. Jennings
One of the weaknesses of the European Union is that individual member states have the power to essentially pass laws and impose the consequences on the remaining members of the union. Such is the case with Malta, who has decided to sell rights to a Maltese passport (which equates to free travel in Europe) for the significant sum of 650,000 Euros.

By Ali Al Sharnoby

Pollard and an American Jewish renaissance
By Caroline Glick --Europe
Originally published in The Jerusalem Post.
The expressions of shock and indignation that accompanied Edward Snowden’s revelations that the United States uses signal intelligence assets to spy on its allies were more than a little disingenuous. Everybody knows that everybody spies on everybody. If Germany’s spy agencies can, they are most certainly listening to the cellphones of friendly leaders from Washington to Paris. Allies routinely use signals intelligence, and human intelligence and everything in between to uncover information that their allies seek to keep from them.
Little Girls Kicked Out of Grocery Store for ‘Offending’ Customers With Christmas Carols
By Warner Todd Huston --American Freedom

Is Mandela the Biggest Liar In History?
By Cliff Kincaid --World News
A group called PunditFact has a “Truth-O-Meter” which says that Bill O’Reilly’s observation that Nelson Mandela was a communist is “correct,” but only “mostly true.” How something can be correct but only “mostly true” is not really explained. It is apparently a liberal’s way of saying that Mandela’s communism should be of no special significance, and that we should just ignore the fact that the world was deceived about his devotion to communism for several decades.

ObamaCare will create Cold Hard bodies

Ukraine’s Two New Energy Deals
By News on the Net --Energy - Environment
If one was to believe the picture that most Western media outlets are painting, Ukraine has been lost to Russia. Though the country fought valiantly to sign an Association Agreement with the European Union in Vilnius, Lithuania last month, President Viktor Yanukovych suspended negotiations with the EU at the last possible moment, betraying Ukrainians everywhere. Two recent energy deals that Ukraine has reportedly made, one with Russia and the other with Slovakia, however, show that the reality of the situation is slightly more complex.

ObamaCare now directing unqualified people to Medicaid
By Dan Calabrese --American Healthcare
So you decided to be a good citizen and go on HealthCare.gov to get that ObamaCare. You make upwards of $50,000 a year, which is decent but not so much that you can’t get a subsidy in the age of Obama. So you figure you’ll find out what your subsidy is and sign up.

Property Rights in Wyoming Threatened by Civil Forfeiture
By News on the Net --American Freedom
Imagine you’re driving along on a Wyoming highway and get pulled over. The Highway Patrol asks to search your car. You don’t like this, but you’ve got nothing to hide, so you consent. The troopers find a large sum of cash that you’re transporting and ask why you have so much money. You’ve done nothing wrong or illegal, and by this point are pretty fed up with the inquiry, so you tell the police it’s none of their business. They then seize your money, letting you know you’ll have the chance to reclaim it in court, and let you go.

The “Arab Spring” and Refugees in the Middle East
By INSS --Middle East
The potential impact of refugees on economic, security, and political stability is a familiar challenge in the Middle East. Past wars in the region have led hundreds of thousands of people to migrate and in many cases to remain as permanent residents in their new locations, which in turn affects the political and demographic balance of the host countries. So too, the events of recent years in Syria, Libya, and Yemen have prompted waves of refugees that are likely to threaten the internal stability of countries that have thus far managed to survive the regional political shocks in (relative) equanimity.

Egyptian cops break laws they routinely enforce during protests
By Jim Kouri --Middle East
Rank-and-file Egyptian police officers staged a protest rally in Cairo on Sunday voicing their demands for higher wages and more benefits. Ironically, they were breaking the Egyptian government’s new law against protests which these same cops have been enforcing in the still troubled Muslim nation, according to Jacob Calabre, a former police commander and now an associate professor of police science at Kaplan International College.
ObamaCare’s Date with Destiny Approaches
By Arnold Ahlert --American Healthcare
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who remains as determined as ever to substitute Obama administration talking points for the truth, gave it her best effort in yesterday’s session before a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee. It was an underwhelming performance at best. As key dates approach and more facts about the government overhaul of the health care system emerge, it is becoming apparent that the ObamaCare scheme is headed for structural disaster—and will take tens of millions of Americans with it.
West Virginia: An Energy and Economic Analysis
By Institute for Energy Research --Energy - Environment
West Virginia is among the poorest states in the nation, with a median household income of just under $40,000, about $13,000 less than the national median. Compared to its neighboring states, its median household income is more than $20,000 less than that of Virginia and more than $30,000 less than Maryland. Coal mining jobs in West Virginia are some of the highest paying jobs in the state, at more than twice the average wage of all industries, but due to the Obama Administration’s regulations, these jobs are imperiled.
South Africa “Joined at the Hip” to Cuba
By Cliff Kincaid --World News
If President Obama’s handshake with Cuban dictator Raul Castro is news, Castro’s featured presence at the Nelson Mandela memorial service and what the South African government said about him are equally newsworthy. South Africa was described as “joined at the hip” to Cuba and in its debt for “liberation.”
Who – really – owns the North Pole?
By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser --Energy - Environment
Some while ago a Russian sub planted Russia’s flag on the bottom of the sea at the North Pole. Now, Canada claims ownership of the spot. Then there are also Denmark, Finland, Norway, and the U.S. with land masses nearest to the Pole. By all precedents, it would appear that each country does have a legitimate claim.
