Same sex marriage: big government power grab

The 2-1 ruling by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, on Wednesday, June 25th, knocked down the state constitutional amendments to protect marriage in Utah, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Wyoming. The decision is pending appeal.

During this same week, a federal judge declared Indiana’s Marriage Protection Amendment as unconstitutional. His decision allows for same-sex marriage to begin in the Hoosier state immediately.

Same sex marriage, mostly by judicial fiat, is now legal in 20 states: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois Indiana, Iowa, Main, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

Regarding the 10th Circuit ruling, dissenting Judge Paul J. Kelly Jr. brought out an aspect to the legalization of same-sex marriage rarely mentioned. He said, “If the States are the laboratories of democracy, requiring every state to recognize same-gender unions – contrary to the views of its electorate and representatives – [it] turns the notion of a limited national government on its head.”

IRS Admits To A Felony by Persecuting Enemies of the Homosexual Lobby for Obama

The Internal Revenue Service admits it broke the law after an organization whose private tax data are illegally shared with an ideological competitor wins its lawsuit. So who is going to prison for this federal crime?

If IRS Commissioner John Koskinen wants to know which criminal statutes have been broken, he might try reading about one in the morning newspapers, the same place President Obama gets his information about the “phony scandal” du jour.

The National Organization for Marriage has been awarded a $50,000 settlement from the IRS after the agency admitted wrongdoing in leaking the organization’s 2008 tax return and the names and contact information of major donors. The information was forwarded from the IRS to the pro-gay marriage group Human Rights Campaign. That group then posted the data on its website during the 2012 presidential campaign. Unauthorized dissemination of such information is a felony.

At that time, Joe Solmonese, a left-wing activist and Huffington Post contributor, was the president of the Human Rights Campaign. Solmonese also became a 2012 Obama campaign co-chairman. As Matthew Boyle has reported at Breitbart News, this information was used to attack Mitt Romney during the election campaign, according to the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes Obama’s stance on gay marriage.

Breaking: Scientists Say Gay Gene is a Myth

DNA genes

The results of a comprehensive scientific study released earlier this year suggest that homosexuality cannot be directly traced to a ‘gay gene,’ but is instead dependent on a variety of factors, including environmental and social influences.

Pro-homosexual activists have long claimed that homosexuality and abnormal “sexual orientations” are primarily caused by genetic factors. They argue that individuals with a hereditary “gay gene” are predisposed toward same-sex attractions and thus unable to appreciate traditional marriages.

However, scientific findings released earlier this year during the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Chicago call this premise into question. During the meeting, Michael Bailey of Northwestern University unveiled comprehensive research results which suggest that genetics alone do not determine “sexual orientation.”

In his research, Bailey and other scientists examined the DNA of 400 men who described themselves as homosexual. Ultimately, the researchers concluded that homosexuality cannot be traced to specific genes.

Politics Immigration reform effectively dead until after Obama leaves office, both sides say (YAY!)

The two-year attempt to push immigration reform through Congress is effectively dead and unlikely to be revived until after President Obama leaves office, numerous lawmakers and advocates on both sides of the issue said this week.

The slow collapse of new border legislation — which has unraveled in recent months amid persistent opposition from House Republicans — marks the end of an effort that both Democrats and Republicans have characterized as central to the future of their parties. The failure also leaves some 12 million illegal immigrants in continued limbo over their status and is certain to increase political pressure on Obama from the left to act on his own.

Some of the most vocal proponents of a legislative overhaul now say they have surrendered any last hopes that the parties can reach a deal. The realization marks a low point for advocates who mounted the first serious immigration push since 2007, when a bipartisan effort under then-president George W. Bush was defeated in the Senate.

The Staggering Price of Crushing the Tea Party (RINOs Cut Off Nose to Spite Face)

National Republican leaders are toasting primary season as a smashing success over activist conservatives that has put the hard right on the ropes and given the Washington GOP the slate of candidates it wanted for 2014.

Those victories, however, have come at a staggering cost — and Republicans are painfully aware of the price of putting down an intraparty insurrection.

Establishment-aligned groups have already spent some $23 million on independent expenditures propping up favored House and Senate candidates in contentious primaries, according to a POLITICO review of Federal Election Commission records. By comparison, Republican nominees raised and spent that amount in the 2012 North Dakota, Indiana and Nevada Senate races combined — three of the most competitive campaigns fought that year.

Supreme Court Narrows President’s Recess Appointment Power

Published on: June 26, 2014

The US Supreme Court today limited a president’s power to make recess appointments when the White House and the Senate are controlled by opposite parties, scaling back a presidential authority as old as the republic.

The case arose from a political dispute between President Obama and Senate Republicans, who claimed he had no authority to put three people on the National Labor Relations Board in January 2012 when the Senate was out of town.

He used a president’s power, granted by the Constitution, to “fill up all vacancies that may happen during the recess of the Senate.” But the Republicans said the Senate was not in recess at the time the appointments were made, because every three days a senator went into the chamber, gaveled it to order, and then immediately called a recess.

Supreme Court voids 35-foot abortion clinic protest buffer

Published on: June 26, 2014

The Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a 35-foot protest-free zone outside abortion clinics in Massachusetts.

The justices were unanimous in ruling that extending a buffer zone 35 feet from clinic entrances violates the First Amendment rights of protesters.

Chief Justice John Roberts said authorities have less intrusive ways to deal with problems outside the clinics and noted that most of the problems reported by police and the clinics occurred outside the Planned Parenthood facility in Boston, and only on Saturdays when the largest crowds typically gather.

“For a problem shown to arise only once a week in one city at one clinic, creating 35-foot buffer zones at every clinic across the Commonwealth is hardly a narrowly tailored solution,” Roberts said.

Sen. Jeff Sessions: Pro-Amnesty Elites Treat People as ‘Commodities’

Perhaps no issue better illustrates the current divide between everyday citizens and our political and business elites than the issue of immigration. The latter group draws the financial gains from a generous labor supply without considering the perspective of those on the other side of the ledger: the working people who have to worry about being laid off and replaced with lower-wage workers, about the strain placed on their local hospitals and neighborhood resources, or about cartel violence spilling across the border into their own communities.

For instance, Sheldon Adelson recently wrote that: “The immigrants here illegally need jobs, want to work and are willing to take on jobs that are not appealing to many Americans.” What about Americans who need jobs? Human beings are not commodities. We need to get our own workers off of unemployment and into good-paying jobs that can support their families. That means if a job is hard or strenuous, employers should raise wages and improve working conditions – why shouldn’t Americans who do tough work get paid more for their efforts?

Global Warming ‘Fabricated’ by NASA and NOAA

Published on: June 23, 2014

Scientists at two of the world’s leading climate centres – NASA and NOAA – have been caught out manipulating temperature data to overstate the extent of the 20th century “global warming”.

The evidence of their tinkering can clearly be seen at Real Science, where blogger Steven Goddard has posted a series of graphs which show “climate change” before and after the adjustments.

When the raw data is used, there is little if any evidence of global warming and some evidence of global cooling. However, once the data has been adjusted – ie fabricated by computer models -  20th century ‘global warming’ suddenly looks much more dramatic.

This is especially noticeable on the US temperature records. Before 2000, it was generally accepted – even by climate activists like NASA’s James Hansen – that the hottest decade in the US was the 1930s.

Here’s How Modern Technology is Killing Leftism’s Lies

Aldous Huxley got a lot of things right in his envisioning of a Brave New World, especially in the rise of the state coupled with the dismissal of natural social structures. What Huxley did not foresee was just how powerfully equipped that the individual would become thanks to technological advancements that emerged so rapidly that the control of the state could not keep pace.

In the short span of the past twenty years, the Internet has grown from about a half-million users to well over 2.7 billion. This represents 39% of the world’s population, including over 80% of every resident of the United States. Hot on the heels of the World Wide Web was the explosion of cellular (mobile) communications, which now serves 87% of the global population. This relatively sudden appearance of a global human collaboration capability makes it possible to immediately distribute information, including personal communications, across most of the world.

The advent of fiber optic cables in the 1980s increased bandwidth capacity for long haul digital transmissions like never before. Specially designed ships have placed fiber optic cables on the ocean floor, connecting most populated landmasses throughout the globe. As of 2006, 99% of all international digital traffic is carried across submarine cables, with just 1% traveling via satellite. And by 2010, every continent except Antarctica was physically connected to the Internet by way of underwater fiber optics (see www.submarinecablemap.com).

Gay Man: Gay ‘marriage’ is really about ‘incremental totalitarianism’

Featured Image

The homosexual lobby’s effort to redefine marriage “is a form of incremental totalitarianism,” a self-described gay man told LifeSiteNews at the second annual March for Marriage in Washington, D.C.

Doug Mainwaring, who was a speaker at the March, spoke with LifeSiteNews after his brief presentation. Asked about his sexual orientation, he said, “I identify as gay in the same sense that an alcoholic who has been going to AA meetings for years would never fail to identify himself as an alcoholic.”

Noting that he “put that aside a few years ago,” Mainwaring said “the impulses are still within me.” But he said he opposes marriage redefinition because “same-sex ‘marriage’ is the most implausible idea to ever come down the pipe.”

“I don’t have to go into religious arguments. Just from natural law — and people even dismiss natural law nowadays,” said Mainwaring. “Even 10 years ago, in the gay community, it was a joke in the same-sex community. ‘This is my husband, ha ha ha.’”

“Gays and lesbians have been used as pawns by progressives to bring about this wedge issue that I really feel strongly is meant to usher in incremental totalitarianism,” he said.

Email Shows IRS Official Was Pretty Happy About Obama Singling Out Conservative Groups

An email recently released by the House Oversight Committee shows IRS official Sarah Ingram was pretty excited about President Obama publicly speaking out against conservative groups with “secret donors.” The email was sent from Ingram to Lois Lerner and others inside the tax agency after a glowing piece was published in the New York Times about the IRS and the trouble it was having with new tax exempt applicants and groups in light of the 2010 Citizen’s United ruling.

“The ‘secret donor’ theme will continue — see Obama salvo and today’s Diane Reeham (sp). At least SS started the idea that we don’t have the law to do something,” the email reads.

For reference, the word salvo is defined as “a simultaneous or successive discharge of artillery, bombs, etc.,” and was clearly used by Ingram in reference to Obama’s repeated public slamming of conservative tea party groups.

We’re All Redskins Now

Conservatives should be disabused of any notion that the recent revocation of the Redskins’ trademark by the US Patent Office had anything at all to do with the disparagement of Native Americans, real or perceived.

On the contrary, the exercise in political correctness is not about aggrieved Native Americans.  It’s about the power to redistribute wealth and to eliminate private property. Essentially, the Left has declared that no person’s or company’s trademark (or patent) is safe. Get together a group of lawyers who are experts in victimization and who have access to some aggrieved group, find a trademark name — or even an invention — offensive and go at it.  Now everyone can have a chunk of the Redskins franchise. It’s been equitably redistributed among the masses — if any of the proletariat actually wants to risk being called “racist.”

It should be noted the real issue for the Left is not that the Redskins trademark is egregiously offensive.  The real issue is about the power to control any entity that will not adhere to the current politically correct commandments.  It is about targeting anyone who has bad, bad thoughts.  For instance, companies with perfectly innocuous trademark names like Chick-fil-A and Hobby Lobby have as their CEOs people who think, according to liberals, “disparaging thoughts.”  Therefore, those companies also should be driven out of business and their CEOs turned out to beg on the streets or forced to enter thought reform classes.

What Congress can do about Obama’s rewriting of laws

What philosopher Harvey Mansfield calls “taming the prince” — making executive power compatible with democracy’s abhorrence of arbitrary power — has been a perennial problem of modern politics.

It is now more urgent in America than at any time since the Founders, having rebelled against George III’s unfettered exercise of “royal prerogative,” stipulated that presidents “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

Serious as are the policy disagreements roiling Washington, none is as important as the structural distortion threatening constitutional equilibrium. Institutional derangement driven by unchecked presidential aggrandizement did not begin with Barack Obama, but his offenses against the separation of powers have been egregious in quantity, and qualitatively different.
