Obama’s HHS Gets a
Slapdown in Federal Court

National Review Online, by Kathryn Jean Lopez

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/19/2012 9:05:53

A federal D.C. district court ruled late Tuesday, just a few days after arguments, that not only can Wheaton College and Belmont Abbey stay in court, but what the Obama administration has said about fixing the religious-freedom problem they and other religiously affiliated non-profits have with the HHS abortion-drug, contraception, sterilization mandate must become real policy, and that the Department of Health and Human Services must report to the D.C. court every 60 days until they fix the problem. This is a huge step toward some restoration of religious liberty as we’ve known it.

Comments:
Some good news finally. Of course these cases will wind their way to the Supreme Court. Will Roberts once again rule against freedom?

God be praised. Ø will learn one day. God will not be mocked. Babies should not be murdered by guns in CT nor by abortionists.

Slapdown my ascot! Obambi´s HHS has never and will never honor a court order. Obambi´s HHS is above the law and is certainly not going to take any lip from such a lowly oganization as a Federal Court. Business as ususl, full socialism ahead!

While a win for those who believe in the First Amendment, the callousness of Obama makes one realize that he used the HHS mandate at part of his War on Women lie. The mandate, like Sandra Fluke, was enough to convince single women that Mitt Romney would use his personal billions to buy & destroy every birth control device sold in the US while Bain Capital would shut down the companies that make condoms, pills and abortifacients while turning Planned Parenthood into brokerage offices. The lie worked.

The best thing about this court win is that it should prevent another Obama lie, that "ObamaCare will not pay for abortions."

Recommend for must read. Sebelius proposed this Contraception Mandate without any documented legal advice. It seems certain to fail Constitutional review. If we go over the cliff and folks react to 452 billion in new taxes in 2013 alone, this may be fodder for impeachment.

The court should threaten to send faux Catholic Kathleen Sebelius to prison for contempt of court on the 61st day if they plan on non-compliance with the judicial order.

As I was watching the explosive IRS targeting hearing, this morning, I was reminded of Speaker Boehner´s words from eight and a half months ago. "My question isn´t about who is going to resign. My question is who´s going to jail over this scandal?" Since then, the Obama administration has gone from an initial "outrage" phase to a "phony scandal" phase, to the current old news/"what difference does it make" phase in which they think enough time has passed that they can push IRS rules on 501 (C) (4) groups that codify into law the what the IRS did to

Newly-minted Mayor of New York City Bill De Blasio is calling for school closures on two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year. Eid al-Fitr, which marks the last day of Ramadan, Eid al-Adha, also known as the Feast of the Sacrifice, and the Lunar New Year, which celebrates the first day of the Chinese Calendar Year, were all given the go-ahead; but De Blasio passed over the Hindu festival Diwali. Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights—which celebrates life, its enjoyment, and goodness—has historical origins dating back to Indian “harvest” festivals.

For the fourth night in a row, Bill O’Reilly spent time talking about his interview with President Obama, and this time he said that Obama doesn’t consider Benghazi and the IRS to be the serious, important scandals conservatives do because he has a very social justice-centric agenda and anything that doesn’t concern that is not considered to be that important in the grand scheme of things. O’Reilly argued that “the far right is making a huge mistake” in saying Obama is going out of his way to harm the nation, saying he learned during his big interview that Obama’s number one

As former Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi’s trials continue, it’s enlightening to consider what is likely to be one of the centerpieces of the trial: longstanding accusations that Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood party worked with foreign terrorist organizations, including al-Qaeda, against the national security of Egypt. Based on these accusations of high treason, Morsi and others could face the death penalty. Concerning some of the more severe allegations, one of Egypt’s most widely distributed and read newspapers, Al Watan, recently published what it said were recorded conversations between Morsi and Muhammad Zawahiri,

Alaska primed to become third
state to legalize retail marijuana
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/6/2014 9:02:09 PM     Post Reply
Alaska is poised to become the third state to legalize retail marijuana after pro-pot advocates this week cleared the signature hurdle to place an initiative on the August ballot. The Committee to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska hit 31,593 valid signatures Tuesday, well above the 30,169 signatures required to place the measure before voters. The initiative is expected to appear on the Aug. 19 primary ballot once a final count is certified by the state. Alaska follows in the footsteps of Colorado and Washington, where voters approved measures to regulate the sale of recreational marijuana for adults in November 2012.

Former Bloomberg Ally Says ‘Mayors’
Group’s Goal Is Gun Confiscation

A former member of Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group claimed this week that the group’s objectives are far more radical than it has let on. John Tkazyik, the mayor of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., said he quit the former New York City mayor’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, after he realized its objective was outright confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens. “Under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intend[s] to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens,” Tkazyik wrote in a Wednesday column in the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is mismanaging an upgrade to its vital border security computer database that tracks who is eligible to enter the United States, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO). GAO’s Director of Information Technology Management Issues David A. Powner testified before a House homeland security subcommittee on Thursday, regarding millions in waste and failures by DHS to meet deadlines for upgrading its primary border enforcement system. TECS is the DHS system responsible for “sharing information about people who are inadmissible or may pose a threat to the security of the United States.” The program has been used

A conservative activist targeted by the IRS and other agencies claimed Thursday that Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings also tried to intimidate her, filing a formal complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics alleging an "abuse of power." Catherine Engelbrecht, founder of True the Vote and the King Street Patriots, aired the allegations during a hearing hosted by the committee on which Cummings sits. An attorney working with her also questioned whether Cummings might have encouraged the IRS and other agencies to target her groups. Cummings, though, adamantly denied wrongdoing and said he can "assure" Engelbrecht that he did not direct

Health care is obviously complicated by the downsides. Immigration would be the real key to this second term."

The headlines out of Capitol Hill today are all screaming about how immigration reform is, yet again, dead. "Boehner Doubts Immigration Overhaul Will Pass This Year," blares The New York Times. "Boehner hits brakes on immigration overhaul," Fox News reports. Don´t believe any of it for a second. If anything, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) opened the door wider for immigration reform this year. But only if President Obama is willing to pass the rest of the House Republican leadership jobs agenda. Here is what Boehner actually said: Listen, there’s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws. And it’s going

Republican leaders eyeing immigration reform have been shaken by new polling that shows a majority of their supporters oppose immigration reform, the Dream Act and citizenship. “The leadership should run from this one,” said a key House leadership advisor. According to a new YouGov poll, Republican voters are strongly opposed to the so-called “pathway to citizenship,” which some interpret as amnesty even if immigrants have to pay a fine. According to YouGov, 58 percent of Republicans oppose “providing a legal way for illegal immigrants already in the United States to become U.S. citizens.” It breaks down this way among Republicans: 33 percent don’t

Presidents often award diplomatic posts to campaign donors and fundraisers, but Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., suspects that Obama´s choice of ambassador to Argentina -- a man who bundled more than $500,000 for President Obama´s 2012 re-election campaign, but who has never been to the country -- is in over his head. "Have you been to Argentina?" Rubio asked Noah Mamet during a Senate.gov/hearings/nomination-02-06-2014">Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing Thursday. "I haven´t had the opportunity yet to be there," Mamet replied. "I´ve traveled pretty extensively around the world, but I haven´t yet had chance [to visit Argentina]."

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue. According to the poll, 54% say the top priority for the

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

CVS Caremark is kicking the habit of selling tobacco products at its more than 7,600 drugstores nationwide.
