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, [...]

TWO MORE LEGAL VICTORIES FOR OPPONENTS OF OBAMACARE CONTRACEPTION MANDATE

You won’t hear much about it from the “news” media, which will focus on the Supreme Court’s rejection of a long-shot injunction request by Hobby Lobby, but the opponents of ObamaCare’s contraception mandate are stacking up victories in the courts. In addition to winning three injunctions against the government since last summer, the opponents of [...]

FOUNDER OF DOMINO’S PIZZA SUES GOVT OVER OBAMACARE CONTRACEPTION MANDATE

Adding Domino’s Pizza to the growing list of private entities fighting the feds over the HHS contraception mandate, the company’s founder filed suit on Friday: Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a ‘gravely immoral’ practice. He’s a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court, [...]

A THIRD FEDERAL JUDGE ISSUES INJUNCTION AGAINST HHS CONTRACEPTION MANDATE

This is the third such injunction to be issued in less than six months. Last July, Judge John Kane of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado issued an injunction forbidding the government from taking action against a company called Hercules Industries for refusing to provide contraceptive coverage to its employees. In early [...]
