Wheaton’s Burden
New York Sun, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/4/2014 9:12:58 AM

“Let me be absolutely clear: I do not doubt that Wheaton genuinely believes that signing the self-certification form is contrary to its religious beliefs. But thinking one’s religious beliefs are substantially burdened — no matter how sincere or genuine that belief may be — does not make it so.” Those words from Justice Sotomayor will, we predict, go down as among the most notorious ever to issue from the high bench. She is dissenting from a temporary injunction issued by the Supreme Court to protect the rights of Wheaton College under the First Amendment. What the justice is saying

If this argument is valid, then all of the perceived discrimination against minorities and the pain they feel--no matter how sincere they are--does not make it so.

Americans are pitching away their unalienable rights with both hands, in the name of "social justice" and particularly "security". I can just hear Patrick Henry thundering, "I may disagree with what you say, so stop the bullying hate speech or the government will shut you down."

It´s Independence Day...enjoy it while we can.

a worthless loon who should not have been nominated and certainly should not have been confirmed. But nine Republican senators did in fact vote to confirm.
Lamar Alexander, RINO-TN is one, so was Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, Collins and Snowe of Maine, Gregg of NH, Bond of MO, Lugar of IN, Voinovich of OH, and Martinez of FL.
Some are gone.

Otherwise it seems that government just wants to humiliate religion, force it to bow to the government rather than God.

This is the sentence that captures what its really all about.

Iran´s New Gay Executions
Daily Beast, by Jay Michaelson    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 8/12/2014 11:33:58 PM     Post Reply
Conservatives may be the ones voicing the loudest outrage at the hanging of two gay Iranian men—but not because they’ve suddenly become supporters of LGBT human rights. The tragic hanging of two “sodomites” in Iran may seem, in theory, like an obvious cause for U.S. concern and U.S. action. (Sign a petition! Demand human rights!) Yet in practice, those most attentive to LGBT concerns may be the least eager to pick this fight. As Nina Strochlic reported in these pages Sunday, the two men, Abdullah Ghavami Chahzanjiru and Salman Ghanbari Chahzanjiri, were hanged in southern Iran on August 6, possibly

Former Vice President Dick Cheney criticized President Barack Obama’s handling of the crisis in Iraq and said that the president probably isn’t reading his intelligence briefings. In an interview set to air on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Cheney agreed with Charles Krauthammer’s claim that the president is “strategically clueless,” adding that President Obama doesn’t think that US power is beneficial, but rather “part of the problem.” And maintaining that President Obama does not “have the same fundamental set of beliefs that most of our presidents have held over the years.” Cheney added that President Obama’s past statements that ISIS was “JV”

Roman Polanski´s sordid past continue to haunt him. The famed director of Rosemary´s Baby and Chinatown will not personally collect a lifetime achievement award from the Locarno Film Festival as originally planned. The Hollywood Reporter says media critics as well as local Swiss politicians blasted the decision to fete Polanski given his abuse of a pre-teen back in 1977. Court records showed Polanski gave a 13-year-old girl a Quaalude and Champagne before anally raping her. He spent 42 days in prison before fleeing the country rather than face the full force of the U.S. legal system. The director said he

Vast tomb unearthed in northern Greece

Archaeologists in Greece have discovered a vast tomb that they believe is connected with the reign of the warrior-king Alexander the Great, who conquered vast swathes of the ancient world between Greece and India. The tomb, dating to around 300 BC, may have held the body of one of Alexander´s generals or a member of his family. It was found beneath a huge burial mound near the ancient site of Amphipolis in northern Greece. Antonis Samaras, Greece´s prime minister, visited the dig on Tuesday and described the discovery as "clearly extremely significant". A broad, five-yard wide road led up to

Ballot Measure

On Monday, the California Supreme Court blocked an "advisory" ballot measure that Democrats had hoped to include on the November ballot, with a view to increasing turnout among apathetic voters. The non-binding measure, Proposition 49, asked voters if they felt the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling should be reversed. The Sacramento Bee notes that at the time the state legislature approved the measure, Governor Jerry Brown had released a statement condemning the measure while tacitly allowing it to proceed by not vetoing it. Brown’s statement read, “We should not make it a habit to clutter our ballots with nonbinding

On July 24th, footage surfaced of Jonathan Gruber, MIT economist and the chief architect of Obamacare, discussing the issue at the heart of the latest ACA court cases: whether subsidies are only available for state-run insurance exchanges or can also be paid as part of a federal exchange. During a January 18, 2012 video-taped lecture Gruber said, "I think what’s important to remember politically about this, is if you’re a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits." The next day, Gruber spoke with Jonathan Cohn, a senior editor at The

The chemical triclosan has been linked to cancer-cell growth and disrupted development in animals. Regulators are reviewing whether it’s safe to put in soap, cutting boards and toys. Consumer companies are phasing it out. Minnesota voted in May to ban it in many products. At the same time, millions of Americans are putting it in their mouths every day, by way of a top-selling toothpaste that uses the antibacterial chemical to head off gum disease -- Colgate-Palmolive Co.’s Total.

Fitness bracelets that track a lot more than just their users’ daily steps could lead to a “privacy nightmare,” Sen. Charles Schumer said Sunday. Popular fitness tracker FitBit, and other similar devices, keep a tally of where its users workout, how many calories they burn and even their sleeping patterns, Schumer said at a press conference. That information can be worth money if the companies sell it to third parties like insurance providers and employers without customers’ consent. “This is personal information. It ought to stay personal. Plain and simple,” Schumer said. The New York senator is calling on the

Eager to defend President Obama from criticism of his vacation in Martha´s Vineyard amid multiple international crises, both Sunday´s ABC Good Morning America and Monday´s NBC Today used false spin to downplay the bad optics. (snip) Jansing quickly parroted administration talking points to blunt the criticism: "Now, the White House strongly rejects that assertion. They say ISIS, as dangerous as these terrorists are, has shown no desire to carry out 9/11-style attacks."

Residents of the taxpayer-funded J-CAP program in Queens were dispatched to the Upper East Side home of program manager Murray Kaplan to do cleaning and to his Hamptons house for yard work, former ­J-CAP staffers told The Post. One patient, a veteran who lived at the treatment facility, was said to have made regular visits to Kaplan’s apartment and was aghast when she was asked to hand-wash lingerie for his wife, according to the former staffer. “She came to me very upset,

According to a senior IDF officer, the military is about to carry out comprehensive field tests of technological means for locating tunnels. The technology has already been successfully tested in laboratory conditions. If the experiment is successful, the systems will be deployed around Gaza at a cost of a billion to 1.5 billion shekels. The senior officer said that the IDF had received about 700 offers for anti-tunnel systems, and chose two.

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

President Obama must really be teed off. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid. Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid [expletive].” Said Clinton: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with

As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and
