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 [...]

HHS PUBLISHES PHONY EXCHANGE FIGURES

Yesterday, I noticed a number of my “progressive” Facebook friends crowing about the figures released by the Obama administration regarding the allegedly low cost of the plans that will be offered through Obamacare’s exhanges. These folks, like everyone who supports Obamacare, have failed to do their homework. Yesterday’s report was a cherry-picked sample of a [...]

THE WHEELS COME OFF OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the gradual disintegration of Obamacare and the growing frustration of its advocates with Obama and the bureaucrats who are supposed to be implementing the monstrosity: I recently came across a post in Time’s Swampland blog titled, “Obamacare Incompetence” … It seems that Joe Klein, a usually reliable Democrat hack, [...]

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 [...]

BILL INTRODUCED TO KILL ILLEGAL IRS PLAN TO FUND FEDERAL INSURANCE EXCANGES

Yesterday I wrote a piece for the American Spectator about the illigal IRS rule that would allow Beltway bureaucrats to illegally funnel money through federal insurance exchanges. This bureaucratic fiat has alarmed two congressional representatives enough to introduce a bill to stop it: Representatives Scott DesJarlais, MD, (R-Tenn.) and Phil Roe, MD, (R-Tenn.), have introduced [...]

THE IRS ILLEGALLY EXPANDS OBAMACARE TAX CREDITS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the latest skulduggery the Obama administration has been up to with regard to PPACA: Recently I wrote that the states could kill Obamacare by refusing to implement its insurance exchanges. This strategy would be effective because the survival of PPACA depends on the ability of Beltway bureaucrats to dole [...]

PROTESTANTS JOIN CATHOLICS IN LAWSUITS AGAINST HHS ANTI-CONSCIENCE MANDATE

This movement against the Obama administration’s anti-conscience mandate may, in the end, have a more profound effect on the election than the recent decision by the Supreme Court. It’s not just Catholics anymore: Today Wheaton College filed a lawsuit alongside The Catholic University of America in the Washington, D.C. District Court opposing the Health and Human Services [...]

CATHOLIC ORGANIZATIONS REVOLT EN MASSE AGAINST HHS ANTI-CONSCIENCE MANDATE

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the coordinated nationwide legal action taken against the Obama admininistration by dozens of Catholic organizations (in twelve seperate lawsuits): If the President and his apparatchiks at HHS thought the outrage voiced by various cardinals, bishops, and countless lay Catholics over the anti-conscience mandate was mere bluster, they got [...]
