HuffPo Writer’s Absurd View of Hobby Lobby Decision

By now, you know that the God-hating Left has thrown itself on the ground in fits over the Supreme Court’s modest Hobby Lobby decision. Last week, the Court, by a scary-thin, one-vote margin, simply affirmed that Christian business owners cannot be forced to pay for abortion-inducing drugs in their employee “health” insurance policies. In the Huffington Post, I just read one of the most solidly ridiculous responses to the Court’s decision that I have seen.

States Rejecting ObamaCare

States Rejecting ObamaCare

We, the people and the states, have it within our power to stand up against federal tyranny, if only we will not give in to fear and will exercise our God-given rights. In the wake of the reprehensible Supreme Court decision upholding ObamaCare, several states are flatly rejecting ObamaCare’s huge expansion of Medicaid–without which, ObamaCare will be much harder to force on the people and the states.

Who Will Guard Us From Our Guardians?

Who Will Guard Us From Our Guardians?

In Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion upholding ObamaCare, he wrote, “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” Ironically this calls to mind another troubling question. Since the Chief Justice’s presence on the highest bench in the land is a “consequence” of political choices – he being nominated by a political figure and confirmed by other political figures – the people might rightly ask “Who will protect us from you?”

In search of conservative leadership

Conservatives are looking for leadership at this difficult and challenging time. The left has a leader. He is in the White House and he is leading us into oblivion. Where is conservative leadership — leadership that will remind us that American community is defined by personal responsibility, not by government mandates?

ObamaCare is the Power to Destroy

ObamaCare is the Power to Destroy

Nearly two centuries ago Daniel Webster stood before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of James McCulloch, head of the Baltimore branch of the Second Bank of the United States. At issue were two basic questions: Did the federal government have the authority to establish a bank? And did states have the authority to tax that bank (and by extension the federal government)? “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, the power to destroy,” Webster famously argued in opposition to the latter question.

Are You Happy Now, John Roberts?

There is no “silver lining” to last week’s lawless and illegitimate decision by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and the other four commie liberals to uphold the unconstitutional individual mandate in Obamacare as a tax (something the Court is not supposed to be allowed to do—re-write a law). Any conservative who speculates that Roberts’ grossly wrong-headed majority opinion is somehow good for our side is pathetically grasping at imaginary straws.

Eviscerating the Constitution

Eviscerating the Constitution

Some conservatives have desperately tried to find a silver lining in Chief Justice John Roberts’ evisceration of the United States Constitution. Those who cheer the supposed blow to the liberals’ ability to pervert the Commerce Clause are like a death row inmate who is very happy about the steak he had for his last meal.

The Spirit of Coolidge on Independence Day

Calvin Coolidge’s life and governance were a living testament to the words he spoke with such simplicity and eloquence. While he epitomized frugality, hard work, common sense and independence, sometimes even his followers today miss the humanity in his speeches and writings. He also famously noted that it is more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones. Yes, you read that correctly! Such blasphemy would be an impeachable offense today, but Calvin Coolidge drew his faith not from legislation but from God and the virtues of America’s most humble, hardest-working citizens.

Who Will Protect Us from Chief Justice Roberts’ Choice?

Who Will Protect Us from Chief Justice Roberts’ Choice?

In the tradition of Marbury v. Madison, it is not up to the Court to answer political questions with which the elected branches of government have discretion. Except of course when Congress has no authority to make such choices in the first place because they directly violate the Constitution. And so, who will protect the people from the consequences of Roberts’ choice?

Article 1 Section 8 from Page 2 of the U.S. Constitution

The ‘Taxing Clause’, Five Lawless Judges, and ObamaCare

We must disabuse ourselves of the monstrous lie that the federal government created by the Constitution is the exclusive and final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it; and that the opinion of five judges, not the Constitution, is the sole measure of its powers. In effect, last week the Supreme Court majority repealed Clauses 3-16 of Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. In a nutshell, the Lawless Five asserted that Congress and the President may do whatever they want to us. Just call it a “tax”.
