This Denver Family Is Not Entitled to
Religious Freedom, Obama’s DOJ Argues

National Review Online, by Kathryn Lopez

Original Article

Posted By:duhem, 9/26/2012 5:44:40 PM

As the president of the United States was asserting his support for religious freedom at the United Nations Tuesday, his Department of Justice was filing an appeal in the case of the Newland family of Denver, who were granted a preliminary injunction in July to protect their Hercules HVAC business – for now – from the Department of Health and Human Services abortion-drug, sterilization, contraception mandate. DOJ argues that when the Newlands lost their religious liberty when they made the free decision to enter the “the marketplace of commerce.”

Comments:
How long, O Lord, how long--what will we do if this destroyer of liberty is re-elected? Please, pass this piece on to all--democrats or republicans--who are concerned with freedom of thought and religious liberty.

Now that is just nonsense.

Does a business lose its 4th Amendment rights re unreasonable search and seizure just because it enters the "marketplace of commerce"?

Nope.

Ergo: The family business does not lose its 1st Amendment rights when it does the same thing.

Our government is trampling the rights of the citizens under the Bill of Rights.

Apparently the people in Ohio could care less.

If the DOJ believes (and enforces) the concept that engaging in "commerce" removes Constitutional guarantees, then all Constitutionally-"protected" rights can be done away with for everyone in the US, since we all engage in "commerce" with one another as members of society. BTW, since corporations are deemed to be "people", then they too must have no "rights". Dictatorship.

It is an inalienable right of human beings to earn a living for themselves, which is exactly what "the marketplace of commerce” is all about. One does not forfeit one inalienable right by exercising another inalienable right.

I am ill after reading this.

Another chanch for the Romney campaign to point out the difference between the two. Someone let the Romney campaign staff know about this as they will never discover this on their own.

Corporations are people, as Mitt Romney is said to have stated, to much derision from the Left. As such, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights apply to them, too.

I have three points.

First: He is systematically taking the First Amendment apart.

Second: If he is reelected, he will take the Second Amendment apart.

Third: If he is reelected, the social unrest that will ensue will take this country apart.

Too bad the No-Justice Department doesn't display the same zeal when it comes to muslims and their religious freedom. Oh, that's right. The only true religion in this regime is the muslim religion. That's why they get exemption preferences in every law the WH and the demonrats deem acceptable.

Stephen Hawking:
"There are no black holes"
The Independent (UK), by Heather Saul    Original Article
Posted By: duhem- 1/26/2014 7:56:37 AM     Post Reply
Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Supreme Court blocks
contraceptives rule for religious groups
Los Angeles Times, by David G. Savage    Original Article
Posted By: duhem- 1/24/2014 6:39:50 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Friday shielded the Little Sisters of the Poor and other nonprofit religious groups from complying, for now, with the Obama administration’s rule that they provide free contraceptives in the health insurance they offer employees. The justices issued a one-paragraph order that keeps in place a temporary injunction that was handed down by Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Dec. 31. The Little Sisters of the Poor and other Catholic charities objected to the so-called “contraceptive mandate” -- a provision of the Affordable Care Act -- on religious grounds. Their lawyers said they feared “draconian fines” if they failed to comply

The Politics of Reality

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following text is adapted from Secretary Bennett’s speech delivered at National Review Institute’s summit on the future of conservatism on January 27, 2013. Good evening. It was National Review’s eminence, Bill Buckley, who described conservatism as the politics of reality. Let’s look reality square in the eye. Let me tell you some things that I think are true. 1. First, two honest looks back and a word of encouragement.

For the last couple of days, I’ve been writing about American culture and American politics. The two are basically inseparable, I find. Anyway, for the first part of the series, go here; and for the second, go here. I will now wrap up. There is a defeatist strain among conservatives. Some say, “You know, we’ve done our best. We’ve tried our best in politics. Let’s just give up, and tend to private life, such as it is. Let’s look after our families, our places of worship, our friends.

Was the 2012
Election Stolen?
American Thinker, by Selwyn Duke    Original Article

As the 2012 election approached, conservative enthusiasm grew. Mitt Romney was drawing huge crowds while Barack Obama spoke in half-filled stadiums. All the passion lay on the right, while the left was discouraged with a promised messiah who proved merely a politician. And the prediction was that, in contrast to 2008, Republican turnout would dwarf the tuned-out and carry the day. Hence the shock November 6 eve. How could Romney lose, especially by such a wide electoral margin? Maybe he didn´t

He killed Osama bin Laden. He ended the war in Iraq. He can lower oceans and heal the planet. He has a better command of policy than his policy advisers and can craft better speeches than his speech writers; indeed, he told Harry Reid, “I have a gift.” Such self-regard is no surprise from a man able to coax two autobiographies out of life experiences equivalent to about 45 minutes in SEAL Team Six.

Tehran — Iran has agreed to abandon its nuclear-weapons program in a historic diplomatic achievement certain to dominate tonight’s foreign-policy presidential debate, and dramatically reshape the electoral landscape. “This is an extraordinary breakthrough,” said Deputy Undersecretary of State Jonathan Ebert Jr., lead negotiator for the U.S. “It’s a tribute to the hard work of our diplomatic team and President Obama’s visionary leadership.” According to Ebert, the momentous deal was struck late Sunday night after President Obama called Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and personally apologized for a Madonna video the Iranian leader found offensive.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

   

 



 
Michelle Obama:
´splurging is the key to life´

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
