The Seventh Circuit Blocks the HHS
Mandate for a Private Business

National Review Online, by David French

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/30/2012 5:26:00 AM

Late yesterday afternoon, the Seventh Circuit granted an emergency injunction against the HHS mandate — preventing its enforcement against an Illinois business and its owners. My colleagues at the ACLJ represent Korte & Luitjohan Contractors, Inc., a family-owned, full-service construction contractor. The company is located in Highland, Ill., and employs about 90 workers. The brief opinion is worth a read in its entirety, but two parts stand out. First, the court disagreed with the Tenth Circuit’s recent decision rejecting Hobby Lobby’s request for a similar injunction. In a key paragraph the court stated:

We get any more judges with commonsense and I may have to revise my opinion about the courts in this country. They may do the right thing yet.

#1 This will eventually work its way up to a supreme court led by roberts and dominated by left-leaning judges and women judges who think with their lady parts....not a good thing.

We wouldn´t be here today if Chief Justice John Roberts would have been less concerned with the court´s legacy and more concerned about the unconstitutionality of this massive Frankensteinian piece of junk legislation. Ironically, "his Court" is going to have one humdinger of a legacy.

President GW Bush made noises about breaking up the 7th. Circuit and they began to behave themselves for a while.

We need to start looking at some of these circuit courts with a serious eye.

The 7th. is certainly a welcome change from the usual suspects who trample our rights.

I seem to remember a judge in La. overturning Obama´s ban on drilling after the Gulf spill and of course he completely ignored it. We also won initial lower court cases in Obamacare that went in one ear and out the other. This ruling is good news but all it does is set up another SC battle of religious liberty being threatened by Obamacare.

I think Roberts will rule on our side this time because he bought himself some political capital on the first case.I think Obama should have been impeached for his public posturing while the case was under review but that´s neither here or there now.

Agreed, #9.... you beat me to that corrective point. It was the 9th.

I have friends who work for Korte´s Las Vegas office - my own company subcontracted with theirs frequently on low-rise builds. Back in the good ol´ days, when construction was booming here in Vegas and hubby and I HAD a company - you know, before the Obama Devastation Era began.

Good on Korte for hiring the ACLJ (love the Sekulows!) and good on ACLJ for pursuing this case ... obviously they made wise and convincing arguments!

Pray that this ruling withstands the onslaught of media and supra-court salvos to come.

The French ruling got me thinking again about equal protection. Can any of the lawyers posting here point to the early history that allowed different tax rates to be applied to different people? In other words, in defiance of equal protection. In addition to net incomes, could we apply different tax rates based on different hair lengths? Different clothing preferences? Different races?

#7 has it. We can celebrate so-called victories but the Rubicon has been crossed and now all medicine is political - and that´s just the way the statists like it.

They MIGHT get your vote if you want a phone or a TV but your vote is virtually GUARANTEED if they can threaten to withhold a transplant or lifesaving drugs.

Individual exemptions are nice but we must never lose sight of the goal - repeal of any sort of socialized medicine.

Sorry, boys and girls, but elections have consequences. By 2016 the vast majority of federal judges -- something like 85% -- will have been appointed by Clinton or Obama. Conservative Federal Court rulings are going to be as rare as conservative Democrats. It´s nice to have a victory today, but between this and John Roberts´ desire to be loved, any victory for our side is going to be ephemeral.

The Supreme Court must rule on issues as they are brought to them. The religious liberty question was not brought to them because the penalties were not in the immediate future. In the case Sotomayor ruled on, the Appeals court had ruled against an injunction. In this case, the Appeals case properly ruled for the injunction. The Hobby Lobby family has decided to pay the fines until they get their day in court. So the religious liberty question will definitely get to the USSC,

The underlying issue is that the Constitution does NOT put judges and courts in charge of any of this. The law is clearly unconstitutional and any judge that finds otherwise should be immediately impeached, removed from office and disbarred! Of course this includes Mr. Roberts who obviously found his own way to leave the law it self in place.

Unfortunately, there is a fatal flaw in the otherwise brilliant system of checks and balances that our founders created. They didn´t (and couldn´t) foresee that someday (now) the three branches wouldn´t truly be independent of one another. And the judicial branch in particular has been "dependent-ized" beyond repair.

The Supreme Court appointees now are clearly political apparatchiks rather than skilled and fiercely independent legal experts. The only thing that shocks me about Sotomayor, for example, is that she doesn´t wear a big, pink vagina outfit instead of black robes on the bench. What exactly are her qualifications other than being a liberal activist suckup?

No, our founders never envisioned the court system, and the Supreme Court in particular, as the surrogate dictator robber stamp pad. The entire system of judicial selection must be completely revamped and removed from the clutches of the political party system.

Agree with #s 14, 22: the ´progressive´ system of taxation is the major problem, and we need to fight fire with fire: it is ´unfair´.
Taken to its logical conclusion, we should have ´progressive´ gas prices, where if your income is at a certain level you would have to pay more for gas at the pump. or more for a loaf of bread, or higher prices for TV´s etc.

It must be attacked for being ´unfair´, the radical egalitarianists must be hoisted on their own Marxist petard.

As for me and my house we will not comply. We will not comply with any local, state or federal regulation that smacks of Agenda 21 marxist redistributionist policies. Government only works with the consent of the governed, and that encompasses more than just casting a vote.

As for jail or prison, might that not be the best place? The socialists are letting out the truly violent, criminal, and the insane. Their end game is to construct a virtual prison by restricting our actions, devaluing our property, and stealing our labor´s just rewards. Why not live in a real prison where they will have to house, feed, and clothe us? Writers can write, artists can paint, readers can read, and the religous can study Scripture, unless of course they do the gulag thingy.

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the
