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.

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.

Gullible Liberals Misread Birth-Control Ruling
Bloomberg View, by Ramesh Ponnuru    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/7/2014 4:54:52 PM     Post Reply
Liberals should spend less time lauding the dissents in last week´s Hobby Lobby decision by the U.S. Supreme Court and more time reading them. If they did, they´d notice that some of their main arguments find little support -- even from liberal justices. President Barack Obama´s administration has sought to require almost all employers that offer health insurance to cover contraceptives. The court´s majority ruled that Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. and similar companies could refuse to cover contraceptives to which they have religious objections. Many liberals say that this ruling was flawed because the Religious Freedom Restoration Act -- the

PARIS — More than two and a half millennia ago, the Assyrian King Senaccherib descended on his enemies “like the wolf on the fold,” as the Bible tells us—and as Lord Byron wrote in cantering cadences memorized by countless Victorian schoolchildren: “His cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold; And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea.” The Assyrian and Babylonian empires appear throughout the Old Testament as examples of ruthless grandeur and godless decadence. The Bible says Sennacherib’s army was destroyed by the Angel of the Lord. The Israelites were carried off to Babylon, where

Summer is hot upon us, another Supreme Court term is ending, and now it is time to evaluate America’s most tutored — and tortured — constitutional law student. It is unusual for a pupil of the Constitution to have such exhaustive continuing education courses, with such arduous nine-on-one tutoring from the foremost experts in the entire world. It is especially unusual since the pupil in question has actually had a constitutional law degree conferred upon him by an esteemed Ivy League institution and lectured on constitutional law at an equally esteemed institution of higher learning. Indeed, this is no ordinary

Politico: Even Liberals Want Obamacare
Employer Mandate Repealed

The unpopular, job-killing Obamacare provision that forces businesses with 50 or more employees to pick up the tab for workers´ health insurance or face a hefty tax has now lost support from even liberals, Politico Magazine reported Sunday. Liberals ranging from President Barack Obama´s own former press secretary Robert Gibbs to the liberal Urban Institute and Commonwealth Fund say ditching the employer mandate makes sense and would reduce "distortions" in the labor market. Moreover, as they note, most large businesses already provide health insurance; the provision is only expected to increase coverage by 200,000 nationwide. Furthermore, Obamacare´s employer mandate compliance

HOUSTON, Texas--Early in July it was revealed that doctors and nurses were allegedly threatened with arrest if they disclosed any information about the diseases discovered in federal housing facilities for illegal immigrants. Many on the left have claimed that by speaking out about their work at the facilities, medical personnel would be violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which "protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information." But Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet--an experienced physician and nationally recognized speaker--told Breitbart Texas that under the law nurses and doctors are free to speak out.

Waiting for Warren

The report that President Obama has promised Senator Elizabeth Warren “complete support” if she runs for president has the ring of truth. We read it in the New York Post under the byline of Edward Klein, author of the number one New York Times bestseller “Blood Feud,” about the relations between the Clintons and the Obamas. He calls the promise the President has made to Senator Warren “a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton.” Our interest in a Warren campaign has to do with the opening it would present to address what we see as the most important issue

As a poll of American voters ranks Barack Obama as the worst president of all time, Matt Lewis says his presidency has been a disastrous flop - talented and much-hyped but ultimately unsatisfying. The trailers were great, but the movie was horrible. Six years in, that´s the general consensus on the Obama presidency. Having ridden a wave of "hope and change" to the White House, President Barack Obama has failed to deliver on his huge box office, err, ballot box expectations. Just how bad is it? Since it is summer "blockbuster" season, I´ll explain thusly: There´s a difference between being bad

In an interview that aired on Kansas City’s KCMO 710 AM/103.7 FM last week, Sen. Pat Roberts fielded questions about his reelection with host Greg Knapp, which included queries about a debate with the three other candidates vying for the Republican nomination for his Senate seat, his long-tenure in the U.S. Senate, the debate about his residency and what sets him from challenging front-runner Milton Wolf. On the topic of his residency, which has been subject of controversy, Roberts insisted he was a resident of Kansas and downplayed the importance of actually being in Kansas in order to properly represent

When faced with a McCarthy-esque smear campaign, best to pull a communist switcheroo.

The left-wing online publication Vox finds the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case to be part of a “deeper trend” in a nation that has made an “unprecedented” turn to a pro-life stance. Writing at Vox, Sarah Kliff notes that, since 2010, “states have moved aggressively to restrict access to abortion and taken new steps to defund family planning programs. Advocates on both sides of the issue describe the wave of changes as unprecedented.” Also affirming the success of the pro-life movement is Elizabeth Nash of the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute. “Abortion access has changed dramatically,” said Nash,

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels. What is less obvious is this plant’s relentless killer instinct. Look through the

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the
