Republicans Accuse Democrats
of Using Hobby Lobby Fallout
to ‘Score Election Year Points’
ABC News, by Jake Letterman    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/16/2014 4:34:00 AM     Post Reply
Republicans fired back today at Democrats’ plans to counter the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision that allows a contraception exclusion for closely-held companies with religious beliefs, saying they will propose a measure of their own. It was a dose of election year reality, dashing Democratic efforts at drawing bipartisan support for their plan. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said the dialogue has been driven away from the religious freedom rationale of the ruling and distorted for political leverage. “I really am disappointed that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle would try to score election-year points by misrepresenting what the Hobby Lobby

Israel Targets Homes

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza´s border areas ahead of more strikes. The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8. The renewed bombings came a day after Israel initially

In preparing next term´s calendar for my classes, I use the At-A-Glance PM3-28 over-sized item. Sprinkled throughout the calendar are Christian, Jewish, and Muslim holidays, information about daylight savings, and the like. Apparently since at least 2012 (if not before) the calendar manufacturer saw fit to note The Day of the Race on Sunday October 12, 2014 as well as Revolution Day on November 17, 2014. Next to the name of the holiday there is an (M). Curious, I went to investigate these two holidays which I had never paid much attention to, only to learn that these two dates are anything

I discovered someone this week who embodied the practices that I believe would restore our republic to its former heights of glory. He´s not a politician -- no surprise there. He´s not a television pundit. He hasn´t written a book. He´s not a household name. He wasn´t a war hero, but he did serve in the U.S. military and was a culture and community warrior who bore a few classic American characteristics that our country needs now more than ever. Charles H. (Chuck) Norris, 88, of rural Mason City, Iowa, was born July 23, 1925 -- just four years after the

President Obama’s domestic agenda seems to pursue a variety of disparate goals, but in reality he was put in office to achieve one goal only: to support the Party by supporting its infrastructure, what I call the Democratic National Machine. Most Americans are aware of the Democratic Machines that ran large cities such as Chicago, New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. Of these, the Chicago Democratic Machine had the longest history and its strategies are still practiced by President Obama. Those local Machines have been united into a national infrastructure I call the Democratic National Machine. The DNM’s sole purpose is to

America’s current political strife stems largely from a simple misunderstanding that occurred back in November 2007. Many of us thought we were voting for a candidate for the office of president, but Barack Obama thought he was running for Philanthropist-in-Chief, a position that would entitle him to skip the part where he actually had to earn wealth before giving it away. White House policy is being driven by an über-left version of social justice that has deep roots in liberation theology and Marxism. Pope Saint John Paul II worked with Ronald Reagan to bring down an evil empire. Now Pope Francis

Attorney General Eric Holder once again played the race card -- this time on national television, in an interview on ABC´s "This Week," claiming that he and President Obama have been targets of "a racial animus" by some of the administration´s political opponents. "There´s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that´s directed at me (and) directed at the president," said Holder. "You know, people talk about taking their country back. ... There´s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don´t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some, there´s a

  


  

Laura Ingraham: Pro-Amnesty
Republicans ´Not Off The Hook´
On Border Crisis

Conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham said that pro-amnesty Republicans like Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) who voted for the Senate´s amnesty bill are also to blame for the current border crisis. On Fox News Sunday, Ingraham said the message from many pro-amnesty Republicans has been, "you will be able to stay here." "Republicans are not off the hook," she said. "If John Boehner had taken this comprehensive reform off the table early on, I don´t think he probably would have had as many unaccompanied minors coming here now." Ingraham emphasized that the "the general sense of that is deportation won´t happen even if

At the start of the year, I told a friend to keep an eye on Mike Huckabee. He just had the look of a man running for president. After all, didn´t Ronald Reagan write columns and do radio commentaries before running? Last month, I was very happy to hear that Mitt Romney was considering another run. Frankly, I think that he is one of the most qualified people ever denied the presidency. Let me add another one - Governor Rick Perry of Texas. We didn´t see the real Perry in 2012 but we are seeing him now. Over the last few weeks, Gov

The worst is judging the not-so-good: That’s what Attorney General Eric Holder would have you believe. Yes, the worst attorney general in our history contends that Sarah Palin wasn’t a very good vice presidential nominee. Mark one up again for the liberals´ war on women. “She wasn´t a particularly good vice presidential candidate,” the AG told George Stephanapolous on ABCNews. “She´s an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.” We’ve known for a while that Holder knows little about the law, now we know that he knows little about politics too.He’s wrong on the law and he’s wrong the

By now, everyone knows that Hillary Clinton’s memoir Hard Choices is a disaster of such enormous political and financial proportions that it should have been titled “Heaven’s Gate” — a reference to the most infamous Hollywood box office bomb of all time. So how are Bill and Hillary taking this depressing news? And what, if anything, are they planning to do about it? For an answer, I spoke to two sources — one in Bill’s inner circle, the other in Hillaryland (as Hillary’s court is called) — and although these two sources do not know each other, they confirmed the same story: Believe it

Everyone knows there are gays and lesbians in everybody’s family. And no office would be complete without a sassy gay character. And just about every other kid in high school is wresting with his sexuality. I know. I watch TV. Except it isn’t true, and the Centers for Disease Control just proved it. A new comprehensive study by the CDC with over 33,000 participants has confirmed earlier estimates; less than 3 percent of the U.S. population self-identifies as gay, lesbian or bisexual. Earlier, much smaller-scale surveys have put that number at 4 percent. The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), published

On ABC´s "This Week" on Sunday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who happens to be black, suggested that opposition to him and President Barack Obama in part is due to racial animus. For that, he has been vilified. He has been accused of trying to scare people to the polls (as if listening to the evening news wouldn´t already do that), stoking racial divisions and throwing down the race card. And he is asked rhetorically "is it possible to oppose Obama and not be a racist?" The response to the attorney general´s words has been very heated, and there is an obvious

Bill´s affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky may have been ´the best thing to ever happen to´ Hillary Clinton´s career, says journalist Daniel Halper in his soon to be released book about the Clintons. According to the New York Post, which leaked portions of Halper´s new book, Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine, this morning, the Weekly Standard editor also claims that it was all part of the Clintons´ plans for Hillary to appear distant from Bill in public during the height of gossip about Bill´s philandering.

In what was clearly intended to be a snarky, hip rebuke of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Tea Party supporters, and other limited government advocates, the Washington Post´s domesticated, in-house “conservative” Michael Gerson inadvertently exposed his true colors. By so doing, he articulated the gaping divide in the Republican ranks. After a string of juvenile insults of various leaders of the limited government movement, Gerson bottom lined it, approvingly quoting from a recent National Affairs piece by Phillip Wallach and Justus Myers: Tea Partiers and other limited government advocates "seek to break with the past in a very different manner –

Why Mississippi matters

If the recent Mississippi Senate primary was a GOP establishment bellwether, the Republican Party is in deep trouble. By resorting to a disingenuous and morally bankrupt campaign to win at all costs, the establishment exposed itself to be into politics only for the power. In order to grow the GOP and consistently win at the ballot box in November, Republicans need to start earning votes with conservative ideas, not government handouts. Since the Republicans’ dismal showing in the 2012 elections, party leaders have been working to revitalize the GOP by expanding the tent. The Growth and Opportunity Project — more commonly referred

Attorney General Eric Holder gave a history lesson coupled with an appraisal of current events Tuesday to an audience gathered at Howard University to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Holder recapped African-American history beginning with the 1619 arrival of slaves in the British colonies and emphasized gains following the Civil War and the 1960s civil rights movement. He warned, however, that the uplifting tale of progress doesn´t mean the country is free of racism. “We must never hesitate to confront the fact, the undeniable truth, that in too many places across this nation that I love –

As thousands of illegal immigrant children are crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, House Democrats pushed for more amnesty, guest-worker visas, $3.7 billion in funding, and more lawyers for illegal immigrant children during a Tuesday Twitter town hall on immigration. Their message to illegal immigrants was, in the words of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), "our doors are open." "We are all connected. We can´t just build a wall or a fence and say no more," Lewis said. "This is America. Our doors are open." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has said she would rather pass amnesty legislation than become Speaker again, and Rep.

Debt: No sooner had the White House crowed about a smaller deficit than the Congressional Budget Office reported that the country is headed toward fiscal ruin driven by excessive spending, much of it the result of ObamaCare. Last Friday, in announcing the release of the administration´s updated budget numbers, the acting White House budget director bragged that the deficit is undergoing "the most rapid sustained deficit reduction since World War II, and it continues to fall." What he didn´t say is that it fell from all-time highs produced by Obama´s spending spree. Or that deficits will soon stop falling and — under

Immigration: As tens of thousands of illegal immigrants pour into the U.S. because they think a weak-willed federal government will let them stay, the question naturally arises: Can they assimilate? On that, the odds are not good. Federal projections for illegal entries of mostly Central American child migrants in fiscal 2014 have surged to 90,000, with some estimates as high as 150,000. Meanwhile, the Border Patrol reports 421,000 adults caught at our borders in 2013 alone. Despite feeble calls from Obama administration officials to Central Americans not to send their children to the U.S. without a visa, the surge continues. The immigrants´ and

FALFURRIAS, Texas—The death march through Brooks County, Texas claimed the life of yet another illegal immigrant. A human skull and the decomposed skeletal remains are all that is left of a person who decided to come to this country illegally. A total of 42 bodies have been found this year in the desert-like ranch fields surrounding the town of Falfurrias. The body was reported by another illegal immigrant who had been captured the day before. A search of the field, located on the northern portions of the Cage Ranch by Border Patrol agents found the decomposed body under a mesquite tree

“A lot” of pregnant juveniles have crossed the border into the Rio Grande Valley as part of the influx of Central American illegal immigrants, says Albert Spratte, the sergeant-at-arms of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the valley. “It’s not uncommon to see 16-, 17-year-old girls who are six to eight months pregnant,” Spratte tells National Review Online. Border Patrol agents do not appear to have kept statistics on the amount of pregnant teenagers traveling to the U.S., he says, but some arrive almost nine months pregnant. Other women arrive much earlier in their pregnancy. One Border Patrol agent working

There’s a very simple solution to this Obamanation that’s occurring on the southern border. Enforce the law. By which I mean, deport them. Deport them all, not just the latest huddled masses yearning to live for free, forever, in Section 8 housing on EBT cards. No, we must deport all of the 12 or 20 or 30 million illegal aliens who are turning this country into a Third World flophouse. Can we do it? Yes, we can. A few years back, Marsha Coakley famously said, “Technically, it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” The ways things are going, it won’t be long before

The warning came after an Egyptian truce initiative failed to halt militant rocket attacks on Israel. Hamas initially rejected the truce but an official later told the BBC it would consider a political solution.
