Second amendment big win

The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution

A federal district judge, in the District of Columbia no less, ruled resoundingly for the Second Amendment. He granted summary judgment to stop completely the ban on carrying guns in Washington, D.C.

Science, religion and law

Triceratops horridus as a scientist thinks it might have looked.

Must science always contradict religious tradition to stay valid? What happened to following evidence where it leads? Lawyers for a scientist who lost his job over his work will now ask that in court.

Obamacare: split decision

The gavel: a symbol of justice and punishment for corrupt officials.

The key part of Obamacare, the Minimal Coverage Mandate, came to two separate courts of appeals today. Each court had to consider how far the executive branch of government may go to rewrite a law. One court, or at least one three-judge panel, showed courage. They ruled in line with the Constitution. The other panel behaved like cowards. They handed down a specious decision in the government’s favor. In so doing they made a split between two judicial circuits. Once again the Supreme Court of the United States must contend with an issue they earlier tried to punt.

Articles of Impeachment

Constitution Day meme. Can Liberty Amendments serve that purpose?

There has been much talk lately about removing the man now occupying the White House through impeachment. Is that just political posturing or is it a valid point that is well-taken?

The board is nailed

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

The Daily Iowan Editorial Board appears to have fallen prey to some very dangerous rhetoric – as though influenced by an un-American entity. Rather than provide an overview or opinion, their editorial presents a plethora of deceitful statements in defense of Islamic sharia law – preaching that it is compatible with religious liberty.

Hobby Lobby wins for us all

Supreme Court rules for Hobby Lobby

The Hobby Lobby store chain, and more particularly the family that holds all its shares, won their case before the United States Supreme Court. They do not have to give any good or service, as a benefit to those who work for them, when such giving would break their religious faith.

IRS scandal: par for the course

The latest hearings on the IRS scandal in the House of Representatives prove one thing above all. It is not that the Obama administration is the least transparent presidential administration in the history of the United States. We knew that already. Instead, it is that the American people lost their Republic the day three-fourths of the several States ratified the 16th Amendment, and Congress ordained and established the Internal Revenue Service.

God – Libertarian?

The Ten Commandments: antidote to communist ideology

I have recently been promoting a D.C. rally supporting traditional marriage. It raised several good questions from someone I love dearly. My answers may have seemed conflicted – or worse, hypocritical – but they were not. I believe everyone has a right to live their lives as they see fit. I also believe that no one has the right to impose their beliefs upon me, the church, or any other person or entity. To complicate matters more, I believe there is a right and there is a wrong way to live. These points of view can be hard to reconcile for many but not if processed through a biblical worldview.

Imperial lame duck

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

Elected representatives in America have often been labeled “lame ducks” when their term is in its final stages. This label implies that their ability to accomplish anything is hindered by the limited time they have left in office. Historically, that has been the case – especially for presidents in their second term. That is not the case for the man now occupying the White House in 2014.

Still America?

The Signers would praise North Dakota today

Is this still America? Geographically, yes; ideologically, no! Our freedoms have been compromised and our government is beyond corrupt.
