CAN SHAMELESS, BASELESS PROPAGANDA SAVE THE DEMOCRATS

In my latest column for the American Spectator, I discuss the pathetic attempt by the Democrats to save their Senate majority with preposterous distortions of the recent SCOTUS ruling on the HHS contraception mandate. For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend [...]

WHY SCOTUS RULED IN FAVOR OF HOBBY LOBBY

In today’s American Spectator I try to cut through the hysteria about Hobby Lobby’s victory in the Supreme Court, and explain why the justices ruled they way they did. This is actually a big win for everyone: This morning’s Supreme Court ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby will doubtless precipitate a flood of stories from [...]

THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF HOBBY LOBBY

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the increasingly hysterical claims made by our progressive friends about the consequences of a Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby on June 26, and the closer we get to that date the [...]

SCOTUS, HOBBY LOBBY & MEDIA MALPRACTICE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the lies that the “news” media have been telling the public about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear two challenges to Obamacare’s contraception manddate: Those Americans still naïve enough to rely on establishment news outlets for information … are being told that Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius and Conestoga Wood [...]

WHY THE SUPREMES AGREED TO HEAR THE HHS MANDATE CASES

In Monday’s American Spectator, I suggested that the Supreme Court would probably agree to hear one or more of the challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate: [Tuesday] the justices will confer about Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius and Autocam v. Sebelius, all of which challenge the constitutionality of Obamacare’s contraception mandate … It [...]

WHITHER OBAMACARE’S CONTRACEPTION MANDATE NOW?

In my latest column for the American Spectator I discuss the decision by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to strike down the much-hated Obamacare contraception mandate: Last Friday, capping off a week filled with disturbing revelations of bureaucratic incompetence and presidential mendacity concerning Obamacare, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the “reform” [...]

THE TRUTH ABOUT HOBBY LOBBY AND THE SUPREME COURT

In today’s American Spectator I try to clean up the horse manure spread by the media about the Obama administration’s request for a Supreme Court review of Hobby Lobby’s lawsuit against the government. Most of the major “news” outlets began their coverage with a rented AP report titled, “US Wants Supreme Court to Take Up [...]

REVISION TO HHS MANDATE A BAD JOKE

As I pointed out last Friday in the American Spectator, the HHS contraception mandate is little more than a political payoff to Big Pharma. And judging from the “revision” to the mandate issued by HHS on the same day, the fix is still in. As Yuval Levin at NRO phrases it: It doesn’t actually exempt [...]

CRONY CONTRACEPTION

In today’s American Spectator I point out that the HHS contraception mandate is nothing more than a payoff to Big Pharma for its support of Obamacare: Why would the Obama administration, having won the legislative struggle to get Obamacare passed and fought a brutal legal battle to prevent it from being overturned by the Supreme [...]

MSM GIVES US THE MUSHROOM TREATMENT ON THE HHS MANDATE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the curious silence of the “news” media on the four December court rulings that went against the HHS mandate, as compared to the thousands of stories they produced about the relatively unimportant Hobby Lobby decision: In December, there were five federal court decisions relating to ObamaCare. Chances are, however, [...]
