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

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.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results. President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
