The Sulzberger Compromise
New York Sun, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 3/24/2014 8:55:35 AM

In respect of the Supreme Court’s hearing this week in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius we have been nursing the idea of a compromise. If it were up to us, we’d rule for Hobby Lobby and the Green Family and the Hahns and their kith, whose company, Conestoga Wood Specialties, is also before the court seeking protection from the birth control mandate of Obamacare. By our lights, they, and all similarly situated religious persons, deserve accommodation. Otherwise, who’s next? We’re an accommodating sort, however, and we’ve been wrestling with a compromise to salve the New York Times, which is in a

Comments:
The article makes the same point as I made yesterday. If religious freedom doesn´t apply to Holly Lobby, why should freedom of the press apply to Sulzberger family corporation?

The lefties are using every argument they can dream up to thwart this...

As I see it, Corporations are People under the law...it is run by people, people work there and every aspect of a corporation is people related...so why not religious beliefs of the Corporation´s owners?

Suppose there are many owners/shareholders. Whose religious beliefs take precedence? Do they need an annual vote? Corporations are treated as a separate entity from the owners. As such corporations protect owners from certain risks and likewise corporations don´t inherit rights from their individual owners.

#2 - The board of directors who are elected by shareholders would make the decision.

Just like the Senate and House of Representatives makes decisions for us ... like it or not.

Border Patrol Union: TSA ´Lying,´
Changed Policy After Breitbart Report
Breitbart Texas, by Robert Wilde    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/12/2014 9:55:05 PM     Post Reply
In a Breitbart Texas exclusive, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) directly challenged the truthfulness of public statements made by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The TSA spokesman used social media to claim that Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby and the NBPC were lying about a recent report that the TSA is allowing illegal aliens to fly on commercial airliners without verifiable identification. The social media exchange of tweets was exposed on Friday evening on Twitchy Media. The NBPC´s vice president Shawn Moran released the Border Patrol agents union´s statement to Breitbart Texas and stated: TSA employees at

What is the most emphatic prohibition in the entire Constitution? Is it “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”? Or “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”? Or is it “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law”? Or “No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States”? Or “Excessive bail shall not be required”? Those are all famous limits on our government, for sure. But they are weak beer compared to the clause that says: “No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the

Obama Lets a Crisis Go to Waste

Whatever happened to the Obama administration’s guiding principle never to let a serious crisis go to waste? Ex-White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel pronounced this shockingly brazen political principle before a group of Wall Street executives in November 2008. He said this even before President Obama took office. It was after that historic election, a time when the president was riding high on a wave of good will and political euphoria that few American politicians have ever enjoyed. It was also a time when the president’s party controlled both chambers of Congress and could have approved just about any

SINGAPORE — A children´s book inspired by a real-life story of two male penguins raising a baby chick in New York´s zoo has been deemed inappropriate by state-run Singapore libraries, and the conservative city-state´s information minister said he supports the decision to destroy all copies alongside two other titles. The National Library Board, which runs 26 public libraries in Singapore, pulled from the shelves and said it would "pulp" the copies of three titles, citing complaints their content goes against Singapore´s family values. The books are "And Tango Makes Three," about a male-male penguin couple in the Central Park Zoo;

An Egyptian cleric formerly known as the "preacher of the revolution" during the revolt against President Hosni Mubarak warned Egyptian television viewers this week that Muslim Brotherhood sheiks have issued a fatwa permitting "anal jihad" for terrorists far from their wives, which is exactly what it sounds like. (snip) In another example of homosexuality surfacing as an alleged element of jihad, a parody of the jihadist group The Islamic State (formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) on Palestinian television implied that its members were gay, calling them "ISISsy"s.

Obama’s Law Professor: ‘I

Surviving Next Legal Challenge
National Revew, by Joel Gehrke    Original Article

President Obama’s old Harvard Law professor, Laurence Tribe, said that he “wouldn’t bet the family farm” on Obamacare’s surviving the legal challenges to an IRS rule about who is eligible for subsidies that are currently working their way through the federal courts. “I don’t have a crystal ball,” Tribe told the Fiscal Times. “But I wouldn’t bet the family farm on this coming out in a way that preserves Obamacare.” The law’s latest legal problem is that, as written, people who enroll in Obamacare through the federal exchange aren’t eligible for subsidies. The text of the law only provides subsidies

It’s the revenge of the polar vortex! A frigid cold air system will be moving through the eastern United States next week, leading to intense weather conditions reminiscent of last year’s dreaded polar vortex. The approaching weather system is expected to bring overwhelmingly below-average temperatures to parts of the northern and northeastern US next week, beginning Monday or Tuesday, according to the Washington Post. States located in areas such as the High Plains, the central US and the Great Lakes could see temperatures 20 to 30 degrees below their current averages. That means people normally dealing with scorching temperatures sometimes

A new Economist/YouGov poll shows that the mainstream media and Democrats are way out of step with the recent Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision protecting the First Amendment religious rights of people, even after they commit the sin of opening a business. Though we have been assured the Court´s decision is a winning War on Women issue for Democrats just 4 months out from the midterm elections, the poll shows that in reality women are split on the issue, with only 46% disapproving of the Court decision, while 43% approve. Hot Air´s Ed Morrissey looked deeper at the poll´s crosstabs

Congressional candidate Mike Dickinson (D-VA) is offering $100,000 to anyone who can provide him with a nude photograph of Texas Tech Cheerleader Kendall Jones. On July 5 Breitbart News reported Jones was receiving death threats and had become the object of a "Kill Kendall Jones" Facebook page because of photos she posted from African hunts. On July 9, Facebook removed all Jones hunting photos and later that day, after public outcry, also shut down the "Kill Kendall Jones" page. Now Dickinson wants a nude photo of Jones.

This week, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), immigrants rights groups, and a prominent law firm sued the United States government in a class-action lawsuit demanding legal representation for illegal immigrant children in deportation hearings. According to the ACLU, the "complaint charges the U.S. Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Health and Human Services, Executive Office for Immigration Review, and Office of Refugee Resettlement with violating the U.S. Constitution´s Fifth Amendment Due Process Clause and the Immigration and Nationality Act’s provisions requiring a ´full and fair hearing´ before an immigration judge."

As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) leaves a path of destroyed churches and mosques in its wake, some wonder whether Mecca may also be in line for destruction. According to Fox News, ISIS "jihadists, led by self-proclaimed descendant of Prophet Muhammad Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have already bulldozed or blown up some of the most sacred places in Iraq." Georgetown University professor Yvonne Haddad says ISIS sees "themselves as the last defenders of Islamic civilization and want to eradicate anything they see as an enemy of Islam, and any Muslim they perceive as compromising with the West."

A year ago The View co-host Sherri Shepherd announced she and her husband Lamar Sally were going to have a baby using a surrogate. The procedure was to use Shepherd’s eggs and the womb of a stranger. Shepherd said at the time that she had found “a drama-free uterus” and that “we’re putting in our eggs and Sal’s sperm and we’ll let you know how it progresses.” It turns out not to have progressed very well either for a baby or for the marriage. TMZ reported this week that Shepherd’s eggs and Sally’s sperm did not work and that she

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY. One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

Not counting instances when he quoted a letter from a citizen or cited dialogue from a movie, President Barack Obama used the first person singular--including the pronouns "I" and "me" and the adjective "my"--199 times in a speech he delivered Thursday vowing to use unilateral executive action to achieve his policy goals that Congress would not enact through the normal, constitutional legislative process. “It is lonely, me just doing stuff,” Obama said at the speech in Austin, Texas, according to the official transcript and video posted on the White House website. “I’m just telling the truth now,” Obama told the

It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bare right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were doing tapas at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “Ma’am, you rock,” I wanted to tell her, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chef Sam Kass, and was

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said. (Video) House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has orchestrated the beginnings of a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority. As the White House and the GOP-controlled House have failed to compromise on a slew of issues during Obama’s tenure, the president has

Angry Democrats in Nebraska said the Obama Outhouse float in the 4th of July parade may have been racist. So now Eric Holder is looking into it. Omaha.com reported: The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade. The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The Odd Fellows organized the parade. One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near

BOSTON — Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille are supporting protesters marching across Massachusetts in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed natural gas pipeline. The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide

The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children.
