Resources for Opinion Leaders who follow this blog-Updated 5-31-11

For those who want further information about the topics covered in this blog, I recommend the following sites. I will add to this as I find additional good sources.

Update 5-31-11. Three additional resources I overlooked are immediately below, which should have been included. All are good sources of information on these topics. Sorry—can’t juggle all possible information sources. ~Bob.

Town Hall

Front Page Magazine

The Ludwig von Mises Institute

US Debt Clock
Lots of depressing detail.

Brother, Can You Spare A Trillion?: Government Gone Wild!
Another site putting the debt in understandable terms.
National Debt by Year
For additional reference on the debt

Eat the Rich video
This really puts the deficit in perspective.
National Center for Policy Analysis
This is a free-market think tank. They have a daily free e-newsletter you can subscribe to that summarizes five or six articles about fiscal policy, healthcare, the environment and other current issue. A good way to get the meat of these issues in a bite-size format.

Thomas Sowell’s Webpage
With archive links to his columns and lists of his books. In my view, Dr. Sowell is the most cogent and articulate thinker on economics, politics, culture and race in America today. Of course, he had the benefit of Marine Corps training, back in the 1950s. If you read his books—any of his books—and columns, you can’t help becoming smarter and more knowledgeable about these issues.

The Heritage Foundation
Good source of research and articles on free markets and limited government. If you join, however, expect a blizzard of begging letters.

The American Thinker
Excellent source of articles and columns on these topics

The Patriot Post
E-newsletters of topics and column links of interest and one of on-point humor.

The Daily Caller
News and opinion.

Real Clear Politics
Excellent source of opinion, news and polling

News Busters
A site that corrects a lot of the bias and errors in the media.

The Cato Institute
Research on critical issues.
Americans for Immigration Reform
Good source for immigration information.

Red State
Blog including a free e-newsletter of conservative political information and comment.

American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
A think tank that “sponsors original research on the world economy, U.S. foreign policy and international security, and domestic political and social issues. AEI is dedicated to preserving and strengthening the foundations of a free society—limited government, competitive private enterprise, vital cultural and political institutions, and vigilant defense—through rigorous inquiry, debate, and writing.”
Immigration Gumballs
Good visual of what immigration means.

The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration
A well documented collection of the problems of illegal immigration

Jihad Watch
This site tracks stories worldwide on the Jihad and actions of Islamist extremists. They have a daily e-newsletter you can subscribe to for free, which will link you to interesting, if depressing, news stories. Robert Spencer, who maintains the site, has written several books critical of radical Islam. I would not want to accompany him on a speaking tour of Muslim countries.

Muslims in America
Video of the collapsing demographics in the developed world

Maps of War
Good visual of how Muslim conquests have changed the world map

The Religion of Peace
Another source for articles on Jihad

Gates of Vienna
Another source for articles on Jihad

The Iconoclast - New English Review
Good source for commentary on Jihad issues
Islamic Statements Against Terrorism
There are moderate Muslims who speak out, however much their voices are drowned in gunfire and explosions.

Investigative Project on Terrorism
Good source of information on the threat we face.

Islam 101
Good review, critical source.

Islamist Watch
Islamist Watch, a project of the Middle East Forum, combats the ideas and institutions of lawful Islamism in the United States and throughout the West. Arguing that "radical Islam is the problem, moderate Islam is the solution," we seek to expose the Islamist organizations that currently dominate the debate, while identifying and promoting the work of moderate Muslims. Islamist Watch specifically does not deal with counterterrorism but works to establish that lawful Islamism is by and of itself a threat.
