Justice Ginsburg’s Eight Worst
Lines on Hobby Lobby

National Review, by Ramesh Ponnuru

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/1/2014 10:16:53 AM

Mother Jones’s list of the “eight best lines” from her dissent seems to be pretty popular on the Left, judging from social media. They may indeed be her best lines, but they’re not very good. Others (such as Jonathan Keim) have already tackled some of them, but here they are in the same order MJ presents them. (snip)3) ”Religious organizations exist to foster the interests of persons subscribing to the same religious faith. Not so of for-profit corporations. Workers who sustain the operations of those corporations commonly are not drawn from one religious community.” This claim is obviously false. Many,

Even at the HL hearing - when I read the transcript, I wondered if she had any idea of what actually is the issue and what free exercise of religion means. After reading her opinion - I still wonder.

I just pray she keeps breathing and stays on the bench until our "Constitutional Law Professor" president is out of office.
As bad as Ginsburg is, 0bama will find a replacement appointee even worse who could be there a very long time.

I agree with #1. We don´t need any more "wise" Latinas who are so smart they don´t need to follow the law.

Christian Patriarchs: International
Community Must ´Eradicate ISIL’
Cybercast News Service, by Lauretta Brown    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/29/2014 1:31:21 PM     Post Reply
“The international community must act and eradicate ISIL” (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), Eastern Orthodox and Catholic patriarchs said in a strongly-worded statement from Lebanon Wednesday. “This is required from the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council,” the statement said. The patriarchs met in the Maronite Catholic patriarchate of Bkirki to discuss the plight of embattled Christians in the Middle East, who have been targeted for annihilation by ISIL. The meeting was attended by a number of Western diplomats and UN representatives. Following the meeting, Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rai´s envoy, Bishop Boulos Sayyah, read the statement aloud,

Obama´s ´Don´t Have a

"I appreciate the opportunity to come on your show and explain" what the President Obama meant on Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Friday. Earnest said President Obama may not have a strategy for "what we could do militarily in Syria," but "when it comes to confronting ISIL, the president´s made very clear that we do have a comprehensive strategy for confronting ISIL." That "comprehensive strategy" includes support for an inclusive Iraqi government; training and equipment for Iraqi and Kurdish security forces; and "engaging regional governments." It also includes U.S. military strikes in Iraq to

Obama Never Has a Plan

On Thursday, President Obama held a press conference in which he humiliated himself entirely on the question of America’s handling of the terror group ISIS. Explaining that he had to consult Congress and check the pulse of Americans, Obama stated, “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet.” Which begs the question: what the hell does this guy do for a living? ISIS has been on the move since April 2013, when Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced that ISIS was moving into Iraq as well as Syria. On June 29, 2014, ISIS announced

"It was a struggle all the way," she said. "Women marched. Women starved. Women were starved. Women were force-fed. Women could barely speak up in their own homes.

California Land Mass Rising

California has suffered the loss of 63 trillion gallons (or 240 gigatons) of water in the past 18 months, which has resulted in the ground literally rising by an average of .15 inches since last year. The lack of water has also resulted in the movement of California´s mountains, where the uplift has been most pronounced. According to the journal Science and the Washington Post, the mountains have risen as high as half an inch. As California´s drought continues to hit the Golden State, it´s reservoirs have also been affected. The drought has left one of California´s largest reservoirs, Lake

Ancient DNA Sheds New Light

The earliest people in the North American Arctic remained isolated from later arrivals to the region for millennia before vanishing more than 700 years ago, a new genetic analysis shows. The study, published online Thursday, also reveals that today´s Inuit and Native Americans of the Arctic are genetically distinct from the region´s first settlers. Inuit hunters in the Canadian Arctic have long told stories about a mysterious ancient people known as the Tunit, who once inhabited the far north. Tunit men, they recalled, possessed powerful magic and were strong enough to crush the neck of a walrus and singlehandedly haul

Islamic imam Anjem Choudary from London told Sean Hannity last night in an explosive 11-minute interview: "You have no choice, Sharia law is coming to a place near you" and denied reports that Christians were being forced to ´convert or die´ in Iraq, or that the Islamic State had driven Yazidis to Mount Sinjar. Choudary even went so far as to say that reports to the contrary were: "a complete pack of lies in order to vilify the Islamic State. And by the way, there is nothing called ISIS anymore, it is a Caliphate... Secondly, Christians are actually queuing up

For the past week, the left has had their own "viral" campaign to help fund what they consider a very worthy cause: abortion! It´s being dubbed as "an alternative to the Ice Bucket Challenge" - because why donate to help save lives, when you can donate to help end them, right? The Drink Beer/Eat a taco/kill a baby campaign is the brainchild of Andrea Grimes of RH Reality Check and the Texas Observer, both part of George Soros’ Media empire. “The Taco or Beer Challenge couldn’t be simpler,” Grimes says: “You eat a taco and/or drink a beer, and you

The Muslim Rape of Christian Nuns
PJ Media, by Raymond Ibrahim    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/28/2014 3:50:16 PM     Post Reply
Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been behaving—whether Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Mesopotamia’s Islamic State, Somalia’s Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims. The latest such attack comes from Bangladesh, which is over 90% Muslim in population. In early July, dozens of men armed with machetes, knives and iron rods attacked the convent of PIME (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku), a village mission in north Bangladesh. “The nuns were

U.N. Report: Syrian Children
Forced to Watch ISIS Beheadings
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant commonly carries out public executions in its Syrian stronghold on Fridays, forcing children to watch as victims are beheaded or shot at close range. Corpses are then displayed on crucifixes and decapitated heads exhibited on sticks for days afterwards. The gruesome details are recorded in a new report released Wednesday by a U.N.-appointed independent panel investigating the Syrian conflict, now being described as “the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe.” Amputations, the stoning to death of women by “ISIS-sanctioned” mobs, lashings with cables, and the recruitment of children as young as 10 to fight

´Child Abuse´: Kids As Young As

Contraceptive Implants

Children as young as 12 are being given contraceptive implants by government health boards in Scotland, many without their parents’ knowledge, raising concerns over their vulnerability to sexual exploitation. The drugs have not been tested on minors, and the long term health effects of using these drugs on children are not known. But still almost 3,500 minors have received the long term contraceptive implant since 2010, the Daily Mail today reported. The manufacturer, MSD, has confirmed that the “safety and efficacy in adolescents under the age of 18 has not been established”. A Freedom of Information Act request established that

She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages even though one

President Barack Obama said during a Thursday press conference that his administration doesn´t have a plan worked out yet for defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Syria. [Snip] ´What I´ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we´re at than we currently are,´ Obama cautioned. He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

The Secret Service is investigating a possible threat made against President Obama. Authorities tell NBC News that there was a “potentially suspicious person and vehicle” near where Obama made fundraising stops tonight. Connecticut police have been informed of the report by the Secret Service, as well as being advised to be on lookout for this suspicious person. State law enforcement is currently looking for the car this person was driving, which they believe to be a blue Jetta with Connecticut plates.

Megyn Kelly was incredibly bewildered Thursday night at President Obama‘s comment about having no concrete Syria strategy yet. Ed Henry was very blunt in telling Kelly that this is an unqualified “disaster” for the White House. Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning these two races. So how is the one-time “boy genius” doing this? By running ads attacking Senators Mark Pryor and Kay Hagan from the left. Yes, you heard that right. Rove’s Crossroads GPS PAC is insisting in their latest

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is interrupting a weekend trip to return to the White House. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama changed his plans for Friday and will return to Washington late in the evening after fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island, instead of overnighting in New York as originally planned. Earnest said Obama himself made the decision to return to the White House and that it was unrelated to any current events. "He can sleep in his own bed, do a little work tomorrow, spend some time with his family" before traveling back to Westchester
