OBAMA DOJ FILES ANOTHER SURREAL BRIEF IN FLORIDA OBAMACARE LAWSUIT

Today was the deadline for the government lawyers of the Obama Justice Department to file a brief in support of their weird motion to clarify in Florida v. HHS, and they produced a doozy. Their basic claim is that, when Vinson ruled ObamaCare unconstitutional, he did not grant the plaintiffs an injunction halting implementation of the “reform” law. But, [...]

LEGAL SCHOLARS WONDER AT DOJ’S DUMB DECISION TO MESS WITH JUDGE VINSON

It is becoming increasingly obvious to legal experts that the Obama Justice Department shot itself in the foot when it asked U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson to clarify a perfectly clear order. Vinson hoped the DOJ would take the hint when he granted the plaintiffs in Florida v. HHS “declaratory relief? rather than an outright injunction. But they decided [...]

VIDEO: UNIONS TO US, “THUG YOU”!

Yesterday’s nationwide union protest against the taxpayers and our elected representatives was supposed to bring out a million people, but it looks like fewer than 100,000 actually showed up.  And who can blame people for sitting the thing out? Would you want to show solidarity with a POS like this? Oh, just a reminder as you watch this: [...]

VIDEO: GINGRICH SAYS “THE RULE OF OBAMA” ON DOMA AND OCARE IS “VERY DANGEROUS”

In this interview with Newsmax, Newt Gingrich warned that the President’s decision to arbitrarily suspend the Defense of Marriage law could create a constitutional crisis. The idea that we now have ‘The Rule of Obama’ instead of the rule of law should frighten everybody. [It is] a very dangerous precedent. He went on to say that Judge [...]

VIDEO: RYAN ON THE FLEEBAGGERS, “I DIDN’T LIKE OBAMACARE, BUT I DIDN’T WALK OUT.”

Wisconsin, of all places, has become the most visible microcosm of all that is good and bad in American politics today. In this video, one of the good guys discusses the fleebaggers—-those Democrat lawmakers who fled the state to avoid the consequences of last November’s election: I didn’t like the legislation that was moving through Washington during the last [...]

JUDGE KESSLER’S MENTAL OCARE RULING WAS INEVITABLE

Judge Gladys Kessler has become something of a laughingstock among legal scholars because of her claim, in her recent ruling upholding ObamaCare, that the Constitution’s commerce clause allows Congress regulate mental as well as physical transactions: As previous Commerce Clause cases have all involved physical activity, as opposed to mental activity, i.e. decision-making, there is [...]

JUDGE ROGER VINSON PREPARES TO APPLY THE TWO-BY-FOUR TO A GOVERNMENT MULE

On January 31, U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson ruled ObamaCare unconstitutional and granted “declaratory relief” to the plaintiffs in Florida v. HHS. Declaratory relief, as Judge Vinson explained at the time, was essentially an injunction meant to stop implementation of ObamaCare until the appeals process had run its course. However, despite Vinson’s presumption that “the Executive [...]

VIDEO: UNION THUG ATTACKS YOUNG (FEMALE) CONSERVATIVE

Tabitha Hale, Tea Party organizer and blogger, is with FreedomWorks. She was filming this thug and his response was pretty typical for our oppressed union members—-he physically attacked her. I can see why those University of Wisconsin doctors want to show solidarity with guys like this, can’t you? Oh, by the way, this goon is with [...]

STATE OF WISCONSIN INVESTIGATING FAKE SICK NOTES FROM UNION-FRIENDLY DOCTORS

I wonder if those “socially conscious” doctors are beginning to regret their decision to hand out phony sick notes. First, the University of Wisconsin has begun looking into the matter, and now there is this: Staff at the state Department of Regulation and Licensing have begun to review roughly 300 e-mail complaints about doctors issuing excuse [...]

ANOTHER CLINTON-APPOINTED JUDGE TOSSES ANOTHER MINOR OBAMACARE LAWSUIT

Every time the Obama administration gets wind that bad news is coming on one of the two major ObamaCare challenges (i.e. the Florida and Virginia cases), some obscure Clinton appointee suddenly issues a laughable ruling on some minor case no one has ever heard of. Just before Judges Henry Hudson and Roger Vinson issued their widely expected adverse rulings [...]
