On The Home Front


A Serious Plan for Prosperity and Peace


This recent speech by Rick Perry on energy policy and this article by Stephen Moore in the Wall Street Journal discussing Harold Hamm's analysis of our nation's oil and gas potential ought to constitute a bigger story in the presidential campaign. Hamm, who grew up in rural Oklahoma as the son of sharecroppers, has roots like Perry's, who grew up in rural Texas as the son of sharecroppers.

America rose to superpower status in large part through the genius and grit of its oilmen. In the Second World War, our nation produced much more oil than all the rest of the world put together -- more than 80% of Allied oil production. It is hard to imagine how we could have won that war, which required huge amounts of oil to sail our warships, fly our aircraft, fuel our tanks and trucks -- and to fill that need for our allies -- without our incredibly productive oil industry.

Domestic production of oil and gas declined because the cost of production in nations like Saudi Arabia allowed OPEC to become a cartel that could underbid American producers. Leftists in America collaborated. Drilling for oil was proscribed in many areas that likely had vast reserves.

Moreover, the left hated every practical American energy resource. Coal mining was hobbled with environmental regulations. Nuclear power plants could not be built even though France has safely produced vast amounts of electricity through nuclear power for decades, much of which is exported. READ MORE HERE



Marco Rubio: My family's flight from Castro
By SEN. MARCO RUBIO  Commentary  POLITICO 
 

Marco Rubio and his mother
The Washington Post on Friday accused me of seeking political advantage by embellishing the story of how my parents arrived in the United States.

That is an outrageous allegation that is not only incorrect, but an insult to the sacrifices my parents made to provide a better life for their children. They claim I did this because “being connected to the post-revolution exile community gives a politician cachet that could never be achieved by someone identified with the pre-Castro exodus, a group sometimes viewed with suspicion.”  READ MORE HERE
Fears and Smears
Islamophobia is not an irrational fear, nor is it the fear of Islam.
By Andrew C McCarthy - National Review
‘From a purely academic point of view, this translation is superior to anything produced by orientalists in the way of translations of major Islamic works.” Taha Jabir al-Alwani was writing about Reliance of the Traveller, the English version of Umdat al-Salik, the classic manual of sharia (“Islamic Sacred Law,” as the cover of Reliance puts it). Alwani is no lightweight in these matters. His specialty is fiqh — Islamic jurisprudence. In fact, he has been a member of the Islamic Fiqh Academy in Saudi Arabia and is renowned among orientalist scholars in the West as president of the Fiqh Council of North America.
More significant, he was writing in his capacity as president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Headquartered in Virginia, IIIT is an Islamist think tank created by the Muslim Brotherhood in the early 1980s.  READ MORE HERE

Krauthammer down on Herman Cain: ‘He is winging it’
by Jeff Poor - The Daily Caller
Say what you want about former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain’s presidential bid and his missteps along the way, but one can’t argue with the results. He has an edge in the average of the major polls and even picked up a straw poll victory in Nevada on Friday.
Nonetheless, that isn’t impressing Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer. In his regular appearance on the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Friday, Krauthammer castigated Cain, mainly for his confusing response on the abortion issue on “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network earlier this year.
“[I] saw him on ‘Stossel’ on abortion – entirely incoherent,” Krauthammer said. “On one hand, people ought to have choice. On the other hand life is sacred from the beginning and abortion ought to be illegal. This isn’t a complicated issue. It’s one or the other. It can’t be both. Stossel was simply stunned. And if you combine it with the ‘9-9-9’ stuff, it is not that he just hasn’t thought it out. He is winging it. And that is a real problem.”      Watch:

Senate Blocks First Piece of Obama Jobs Bill

By MICHAEL WARREN - The Weekly Standard  

In a 50-50 vote last night, the Senate voted down the first piece of a promised series of bills designed to pass President Barack Obama's jobs bill piecemeal. This first measure was a $35 billion state aid package for education and first responders. A separate Republican-sponsored jobs bill was defeated by the Democratic majority last night. The Hill reports:
The first measure, a piece of President Obama’s larger jobs package, failed in a 50-50 vote after two Democrats and Independent Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) joined Senate Republicans in voting against moving to the measure.
Democrats Ben Nelson (Neb.) and Mark Pryor (Ark.) also sided with Republicans.
Nelson and Sen. Jon Tester (Mont.) were the two Democrats to vote against the president's full "jobs" package last week. Tester voted yes on Thursday's measure. READ MORE HERE
Mitt Romney and the defense of federalism

by Rich Stowell

SACRAMENTO, October 22, 2011—Mitt Romney is on defense from both his flanks. Liberals, including most of President Obama's supporters, fear him and are trying to discredit him, oddly enough, by associating him with Obama. From the Right, the former Massachusetts governor is doing his best to beat back charges that his state health care plan makes him a de facto liberal. The conservative wing of his party are uncomfortable, to say the least, with one of its best known features– the individual mandate. READ MORE HERE

We hope you have gained valuable information from the articles above.  We'd like to end today's edition with a submitted cartoon which does detail what is currently happening "On The Home Front."
