First Post-Hobby Lobby Decision Halts Abortion-Pill Mandate for Nonprofit
In the first post-Hobby Lobby decision issued by an appellate court, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has granted an injunction, halting the HHS Mandate, to a nonprofit religious organization.
The key aspect of this new decision is that the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision was confined to for-profit businesses; this decision is the first application of the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding religious liberty to cases involving nonprofits. It marks another step towards the abortion-pill mandate’s defeat.

‘Freedom’ is just another word for nothing left to buy
I can well understand the urge to make fun of left-wingers hyperventilating over the Supreme Court’s “Hobby Lobby” decision against the ObamaCare contraception mandates. Responses such as those collected by Moe Lane here at RedState, and Sean Davis over at The Federalist, are worthy of giggle-snorts. But I can’t help thinking these folks are not merely ignorant or high-strung. They’re not so much ignoring facts | Read More »

Governor Bobby Jindal wins Twitter
Could there have been a better Tweet posted than that? Of course the Left is depositing their piles of steaming excrement in response to a ruling that didn’t go their way. But Governor Jindal captured it perfectly. You can bet that that is precisely what Obama and his cohorts were thinking, post-ruling. They are bound to be warming up the phone and pen in an | Read More »

Totalitarians Oppose Today’s SCOTUS Rulings
Make no mistake, both of today’s SCOTUS rulings were about freedom. And the parade of screeching liberals opposed to both results has made it clear that when it comes to freedom, they are against it. The first case, Harris v. Quinn, dealt with the freedom of employees to refuse to join a union or pay compulsory dues to a union they don’t wish to belong to. | Read More »
The Watercooler ~ Scalawags and Scoundrels Abscond with the Vote
Well, it’s a done deal. The Republican establishment has proven themselves to be every bit as low-down, dirty-rotten as any leftist Dem. The McDaniel campaign has now found 1,500 invalid votes. Volunteers working for tea party challenger Chris McDaniel in Mississippi say they have already found 20 percent of the invalid double-votes they need to cancel Sen. Thad Cochran’s business-funded runoff victory. “We’re finished with | Read More »
Hobby Lobby Wins
In a beat down of the Obama Administration, the Supreme Court has ruled that privately held corporations can practice the faith of the owners. Hobby Lobby will not have to comply with the birth control mandate in Obamacare. This is a huge win for religious liberty with Justice Alito writing the decision. The decision does not apply to apply to all businesses, just closely held | Read More »

Thad Cochran or Someone at his Behest Illegally Paid for Votes, Probably
Let’s start with what we know. FiveThirtyEight has done an analysis that shows that Thad Cochran’s campaign benefited from around 30,000 additional black votes in the runoff election as compared to the initial primary. If you were given only this piece of information and knew nothing of how politics works in the deep South, you might well sound like credulous naif and establishment stooge Rand | Read More »

Help Chris McDaniel Investigate Election Fraud
I hope you might consider donating to Chris McDaniel to help his campaign investigate the possibility that the election was stolen. There appear to be documented irregularities of, for example, Democrats who voted in the Democratic primary voting in the Republican runoff. That’s against the rules. Photographic evidence of the ballot books suggest it happened. We need to help Chris. We know the GOP Establishment | Read More »

Slow bleeding the GOP Establishment
Most of the 2014 primaries are behind us and the GOP establishment is crowing about its victory of conservatives. Lest you think it is unusual for a party establishment to celebrate winning the primary elections in its own party, you have to realize that the GOP establishment has become essentially the same as the Democrats: same goals, just different paymasters. As Ace says: The difference | Read More »
