If there is any surprise with this vote it would have to be concerning time; actual time. The measure was approved on a 385-23 vote, and goes next to the Senate. With Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) at the helm in the Senate who knows how long this bill could sit there.
The Obama administration announced the energy and aid package on Tuesday, when Secretary of State John Kerry landed in Kiev for talks with the new government.
The White House said the $1 billion loan guarantee was aimed at helping insulate Ukraine from reductions in energy subsidies. Russia provides a substantial portion of Ukraine’s natural gas and U.S. officials said they are prepared to work with Kiev to reduce its dependence on those imports.
The assistance is also meant to supplement a broader aid package from the International Monetary Fund.
Former Congressman Ron Paul had some startling trepidations, he said, “I’ve always argued that foreign aid is a process where you take money from poor people in this country and give it to rich people in other countries, because the people never seem to be helped. […] It’s government to government.” And so right he is with that statement.
In an interview with FOX News, Paul furthermore noted that the U.S. has given over $7 billion in aid to Libya, Egypt, and Syria – all of which remain unstable.
And with remittances going to Iraq, Afghanistan, and who else knows where, I believe the United States has established a rather ugly precedence with what seem like automatic money.
Congressman Paul did make a couple of points however, mentioning the notion of there may be unintended consequences to America’s good intentions. And of course we believe he is right. (Please see any consequences tag in Categories.)
He used the following narrative for his example — “[Ukraine] is behind on their payments to Russia for their natural gas. So maybe if we send money to their new government, they will pay Russia the money for their gas.”
Paul called the aid package wasteful, especially given that the U.S. is in so much debt. He also speculated that there are ulterior motives behind U.S. interventions overseas. Yet we would like to add that by stating, “If the U.S. really believes that sending the money is ‘a waste’ as Ron Paul alleges, we feel that one would or should weigh in their own hearts – is the Ukraine and the people’s well-being also ‘a waste.’”
Yet for some silver lining Paul also stated that, “he believes in helping people around the world, he thinks we should start with allowing Americans to “keep their own money… and if they want to donate to these countries, fine and dandy.”
And finally for this offering we do have a couple of issues that are upsetting us, therefore we will tag them, Accountability and Responsibility.
We are just going to make mention here of what topic one could expect to see. There are growing calls to follow the money on ObamaCare. Republican lawmaker Peter Roskam (IL) is planning to introduce a bill today that is aimed at keeping track of the $1.8 trillion taxpayer dollars expected to be spent on ObamaCare over the next decade.
Now let us add the $300 million that appears to be lost or somehow, someone in the Obama administration does not have those two precious traits needed for creating an effective government.
Sometimes lesser is better…and I should be sticking more to blogosphere format. Early on when my primary profession as a journalist, syndicated author, with contributions for text books and the international press issues began to subside I ventured into the blogosphere to espouse some of my own experiences as well as write in such a manner that what I was concerned about was easier to understand.
Thank you for the “other informative web site.” This is definitely the place where I could I get that kind of information written in such a perfect way? Where else could I go to obtain high quality information in such a perfect and easy to read way? I have a challenge that I’m just now running on, and I’ve been on the lookout for such info.
When I first started out – I was impetuous with other writers and especially bloggers. How long should my material be? At what point did a “normal” reader get tired of my stories? Ad nauseum and more.
What I gained in answers to my question was about as practical as I would have thought. “Three hundred and fifty words maximum; keep to one to one and a half sentence length per paragraph; make sure to cite your sources, but above all, keep it short and simple.
As time advanced I noticed that my writing was managing to get longer and longer – oh sheee—it! What I found out was in order to make my writing unique, in demand, and interesting naturally used more words. But was that necessary?
How about digging through my books, tapes, cd’s, and so on to remember a notion I refer to as “economy writing.” Economy writing is exactly as the name implies – use less words to make the same point. The most difficult part is aligning words, or, finding a word that means the same and look to cut approximately on a 12 to one ration. That is cutting out 12 words and replacing them with one single word.
That ideal is the reason why my posts are getting shorter or receiving less verbiage with far more links – therefore, it inevitably comes down to YOU…by letting me know what you prefer.
Fireworks in the House!
How many out there was able to catch the idiot of the state, Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the representative from Maryland who also because of tenure is the ranking democrat in the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform today during the Committee’s investigation or the Internal Revenue Service and former officer Ms. Lois Lerner?
During a hearing of the House Oversight Committee into allegations that the Internal Revenue Service scrutinized conservative groups’ tax-exempt status filings unduly, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) exploded at Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (D-CA). Cummings charged that the way in which the proceedings were being conducted were “Un-American.”
Unbeknownst to Cummings apparently Rep. Issa had already adjourned the Committee’s meeting. While making a statement before the committee, Issa stood up and asked Cummings to yield, actually quite civilly and respectful.
Whilst screaming, “If you will sit down and allow me to ask a question,” Cummings insisted. “I am a member of a Congress of the United States of America.” Great is precisely what I was thinking.
However this time the clearly maniacal Cummings blurted out, “I am tired of this,” he continued. “You cannot just have a one-sided investigation. There is absolutely something wrong with that, and it is absolutely un-American.”
“We had a hearing. It was adjourned,” Issa replied. “I gave you an opportunity to ask your questions. You had no questions.”
Before anymore credit goes to Rep. Elijah Cummings for what was clearly unprofessional conduct, not to mention borderline rage, I believe that there are some issues that should be mentioned.
First it was Rush Limbaugh who pointed out that he believed Rep. Cummings was grandstanding. I am in full agreement with Mr. Limbaugh; however, I would more likely say, “Cummings looks like the typical Democrat when not getting his way…whatever that is…”
My main point is this Elijah Cummings rage saga is this…GOOD, GREAT!! With the frustration he seems to be experiencing or even his “I’ve had it!” blurting out, maybe now he can understand how most of us feel about the job he and his organization is doing.
OBAMA’s lack of knowledge in areas of Foreign Policy
What is coming more and more, even day by day, and finally we know now that President Obama is not prepared, to plan or implement any Foreign Policy with matters in Crimea or the significant invasion that is occurring in the Ukraine at present.
The implications of his lack of planning are currently frustrating (not wanting to mention embarrassing) as well they should be insofar as it is America as a whole that is suffering on the international platform.
To think even for an instant that America has had a solid position for at least the last sixty-five years which of course is for the most part designed, constructed, and implemented by successive Republican controlled legislation and presidential administrations for nearly a century.
All one really need to do is look at The Cold War. This is not mentioned because Barack Obama believes that the Cold War does not exist. Moreover, we think that it is safe to understand that any and all Democrat Party members as well as those Obama supporters in the main-stream media are exhausting themselves pushing these last rounds of the lack of foreign policy on President Bush.
Notwithstanding the utter ignorance by those who engage in the “Bush Bashing;” we find it critical to observe President Obama’s record as a U.S. Senator and find his own positions a matter of record in Congressional update information. For further reading please see…click here.)
Don’t You Just Hate It when Alleged Responsible People Project Inaccurate Information
An organization that publishes many of the issues that I write about sent me an email the other day to see if I had any comments on a recent poll and/or the written commentary that went along with it; an opportunity that I have been unable to shake since viewing and reviewing the article since its publication.
The article which I am referring to is at none other than the Pew Research Center’s section called, Fact Tank News in the Numbers written by Ana Gonzales – Barrera. The article that is titled, Record number of deportations in 2012 is generally lacking any of The Pew Institutes integrity for truth in reporting and carelessly allowed the article to be published.
The “Alleged Responsible People” mentioned in my title is Ana Gonzales – Barrera, who proffers such self –titles as Research Associate at the Hispanic Trends Project. Putting this title in an as-it-were type vernacular, thrusts an interested or more knowledgeable reader into a position of looking to see if, in fact, the Hispanic Trends Project is part of The Pew Research Institute. And it is, as we know from their good work in other area projects.
Before anyone gets uppity with my assessment please understand that I have already viewed the writer’s sources which openly has admitted to publishing information that was given to them by President Obama and it was in fact full of “various inaccuracies” of number pilfering. Please see by clicking here a more accurate report.
WOMEN’S ISSUE NOW SLOTTED FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM
While House Republicans have been adamant that immigration reform is all but dead this year, a coalition of women’s groups is hoping to revive the issue, wrapping it into the “war on women” offensive. Commingling of issues never serves to assist anyone with any matter.
Far be it from me or us in this case, The Contemplative Thinker believes who in their right mind could possibly dream up another barrier to entry. We remain adamant that the issue given immigration reform is altogether a misnomer. Who seriously believes that anything will be done to accentuate the ideas of reform? In fact it is a simple oxymoron to infer immigration reform has anything to do with reform whatsoever. (Reform keywords: improve, amend, correcting faults, unacceptable habits, reorganization, and improvement.)
Every person in this country needs to be on the same page – illegal immigrants included – insofar as to what is reality based, or what can be done, and the wishes and desires of everyone rendering an opinion. Seriously this “reform” matter is looking like a “Hopewell To-Do List.” You name it and it is on it from citizenship, to pathways to citizenship, deferred action for childhood arrivals, states now voting on what entitlements will automatically be received as well as arguing for a higher minimum wage. Simple words of advice…Keep it simple…or else.
What is at the rudimentary level with immigration “reform” is a kaput system that has laws, policies, and procedures. However, pursuant to the leadership of this country since 1986 we believe it has been a Presidential oversight which is our way of saying that the Commander-in-Chief’s Obama, Bush the younger, Clinton, Bush the Elder, as well as President Ronald Reagan or for the past 28 years have intentionally disregarded the rule of law. Envision our country whilst allowing illegal immigration versus a horribly out of date Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) operate.
Arguing that women and children bear the brunt of the burden from a broken system, and that women will be decisive in the 2014 and 2016 elections, organizers said that Republicans should reconsider their approach to immigration reform. Or this sounds like a threat to me. Moreover, let us string the words — women and children bear the brunt of burden of the broken system; however, and let us be reasonable here — are women just victims according to Pramila Jayapal, or would it be more believable to take some attribution.
“Unless we actually have action from House leadership, from Speaker Boehner, to move a bill forward so that the majority of his members in his House can actually vote to move this bill forward, we will continue to push and push and make sure that women voters in November understand who has blocked immigration reform,” Pramila Jayapal, chair of We Belong Together, which advocates for immigration reform, said Wednesday.
This is precisely saying if the Republicans do not fare well especially in 2016 Ms. Jayapal definitely wants to exacerbate the problem by alleging it was women who caused the raucous and not the Hispanics who feel as though they had something to do with the electoral process in 2012.
Jayapal said that the timeline for reform cannot be dictated by a small group of people, and that the lack of GOP action will have a political cost for the party as it tries rebranding its image and appealing to a more diverse pool of voters. Ah yes…when in doubt…what we need is diversity!
“If the Republican leadership really looks at the cost of not moving immigration reform forward…the cost for their leadership in Congress, they will start to understand that the lack of action is continuing to play into a frame that already exists,” she said.
Ms. Jayapal has really done most of us, as well as the House a good deal. Frustratingly she seems to have identified all of the buzz words the same as every other advocacy group out there, such as the National Council of The Race, the Gang of Eight led Senate, and several other special interest groups. Yet the one thing out of all those words that is missing…(1) What is the problem? and (2) What does the We Belong Together organization suggest that the House, Senate, or American people should do to rectify the fallen system.
Driver charged with murder in fatal crash in Milford headed for trial
Despite talks of a potential plea change, a driver charged with second-degree murder in connection with a fatal crash in Milford in 2011 is headed for trial on April 3.
Nicolas Dutan Guaman, a 34-year-old illegal immigrant from Ecuador, is charged in the death of 23-year-old Matthew Denice of Milford.
Judge Kenton-Walker had initially ruled after a four-hour competency hearing last April that Guaman was not competent since he could not understand the legal system. She had given a 60-day deadline to reassess his competency, but the process took longer due to Guaman’s need for an interpreter. However, after spending months getting an education, Judge Janet Kenton-Walker ruled in November that Guaman, who received months of education on the American legal system, was competent to stand trial.

Knife madman: ‘Noise’ drove me to slay family
The illegal-immigrant madman charged with massacring his cousin’s wife and four children said he committed the Brooklyn murders because they had tried to move him into a noisy “mahjong spot,” court papers revealed Monday — as the alleged killer was found unfit for trial. “A few days ago my cousin took me to Flushing to stay there. It’s a mahjong spot,” accused killer Mingdong Chen, 26, told cops, according to court papers.
“I didn’t like staying there because it was too loud. So I argued and took a knife to them.”

Plea change hearing set for man charged with participating in deadly Miss. prison riot
One guard was killed and 20 people were injured in the May 20, 2012, riot at the privately run Adams County Correctional Facility in Natchez, which holds immigrants convicted of crimes while being in the U.S. illegally.
Humberto Cuellar, who had previously pleaded not guilty, is now scheduled of a change of plea hearing March 11 in U.S. District Court in Natchez.
Cuellar’s attorney asked for his client to have mental evaluation last year. A judge ruled in December that Cuellar is competent to stand trial.
Educating illegal immigrants is costly
The U.S. Census Bureau just released 2008 figures showing the national average total per-pupil funding from all revenue sources was $12,028. Although estimates of the number of school-age children of illegal immigrants do not separate those attending public vs. private schools, it is reasonable to assume that nearly all attend public schools since most come from lower-income families.
Therefore, if one multiplies $12,028 by the roughly 3.7 million students with illegal-immigrant parents, then one gets a national total funding cost of $44.5 billion.
The actual cost of schooling these children could be higher because many education dollars are earmarked for special purposes. At the federal level, Title I funds are sent to schools to support disadvantaged children, which benefits many children of illegal immigrants.
In California, the state’s Economic Impact Aid program provides tax dollars to fund English-language acquisition, which aids children of illegal immigrants. Capital costs for school construction may have increased at a higher rate because of the influx of children of illegal immigrants.
As for chain migration and citizenship upon birth – Although almost three-quarters of the children of illegal immigrants were born in the United States and are therefore citizens, had their parents not entered the U.S. illegally these children likely would not be in U.S. public schools and would not require taxpayer funding. Thus, it is fair to say that their education cost stems from their parents’ illegal entry into this country. Please read on at click here.
The writer reminds everyone interested as well as the “What Next” crowd that the above stated monetary figures are predicated upon data that was collected in 2008. Whilst reading the story at both Pew Research Center as well as the acj.com it seems very likely that one could almost double those figures and/or the actual number of illegal aliens insofar as the population just about doubles each decade.
Principles of America’s Founders must be restored…
Understanding our political heritage is a vital part of building a stronger America for the next generation. The principles of America’s Founders must be restored to their proper role in the public and political discourse, influencing public policy and reforming government to reflect constitutional limits.
Recently, law professor Jonathan Turley took to the pages of The Washington Post to warn about the growth of the administrative state. “The growing dominance of the federal government over the states has obscured more fundamental changes within the federal government itself,” Turley wrote. “Our carefully constructed system of checks and balances is being negated by the rise of a fourth branch, an administrative state of sprawling departments and agencies that govern with increasing autonomy and decreasing transparency.”
Predictably, some career bureaucrats did not like Turley’s message and registered their protests with letters to the Post. “If Mr. Turley were to check the beginning of regulations published in the Federal Register, he would see that these civil servants also have phone numbers where they can be reached,” one wrote. “Agencies like mine go to great pains to be open about our efforts and are subject to vigorous scrutiny by Congress and the courts,” added another. “They end up knowing just about everything but our shirt size. How much more transparent can we get?”
The complaints miss the point. Certainly many bureaucrats are nice people, and certainly they can be reached by phone, fax, or e-mail. The problem is not the people in the government; it is that those people do not have the constitutional authority to be making public policy.
As Heritage’s Joe Postell puts it, there are four major constitutional problems today:
The administrative state combines the powers of government in the hands of the same officials in violation of the separation of powers principle.
It is based on unconstitutional delegations of legislative power from Congress to bureaucrats and administrators.
It violates the principle of republican government, which requires that power—especially legislative power—be derived from the consent of the governed, expressed directly or indirectly through elections.
The administrative process it follows to adjudicate disputes is fundamentally opposed to the protections offered by the rule of law in the traditional judicial process.
The Founders gave us a system carefully crafted to divide power, but we have allowed bureaucrats to expand their reach. “Do we want to be governed by the rule of law as hammered out in open legislative debate, carried on by our elected representatives, directly accountable to us? Or do we wish to be governed by the expanding rule of regulation, the rule of administrators who are most certainly not accountable to us?” asks Heritage’s Bob Moffit. “The rule of regulation is the rule of regulators. But today, the rule of regulators is arbitrary and unaccountable government.”

Meanwhile, back at the White House, it is a tough time for President Obama. As well it should be! He has earned every rating he has received.
The magic is over. Gone are the swooning crowds and fainting admirers of yesteryear, the almost hypnotic adoration of the “Stepford media,” the childlike hope of millions that “the One” would transform this nation – for which they inexplicably harbor so much bitterness – into a perfect utopia of “equality” and “social justice” (code words for big-time wealth redistribution).
Today, polls show that even once-enthusiastic Obama supporters are dismayed at having been knowingly and repeatedly lied to. Not only can’t they keep their health insurance “if they like it,” they can’t keep their doctor, can’t keep their hospital, can’t even – in some cases – keep their medicine!
Likewise it turns out, as prominent Democrats now belatedly admit, government “death panels” (by whatever name) were always understood by Obamacare’s creators as an absolutely essential component of a socialized scheme dependent on centralized rationing.
In sum, Team Obama stands exposed as having relied on massive lies, bribery, and fraud to engineer the intentional destruction of the greatest health-care delivery system in world history.
It was not a day or so ago that some expert (name unknown) was comparing Obama’s early speeches mostly commentating on the notion that (tear jerker) 30 million Americans did not have health insurance coverage. Interestingly, after ripping through a political party – Republican Party – for the unparalleled “they won’t work with us…” or “it’s impossible crossing the aisle to meet with the other person.”
What this particular expert was making reference too was the fact that in the year 2020 when all of Obama’s pandering was to be completed, the fact remains that there will be close to 40 million Americans that are without health insurance coverage.
Leading Evangelicals Show that Bible Has Been Misinterpreted
Any true Christian is one that understands what he or she is reading the true unadulterated word of God. Very early in a young Christian’s life, the Apostle Paul tracks young, youthful new Christians to ensure that they are being lead by responsible God-fearing people. Paul uses a very easy to understand formula — the difference between being one who consumes only milk compared to an older individual who is ready with (teeth, manners, and honors cultural customs) graduates from the subtle warm milk just as a baby would then on to the hard food that we as mature adults eat.
Here is an example of what many of us have been careful not to get caught up in. Christians are asked loads of questions — naturally by those who think that Christians have somehow and in someway captured the meaning of the entire Bible. Many people are unaware that the entire Bible was written over thousands of years. Therefore, when you ask a Christian, “What does God mean about…” it wouldn’t be uncommon for a true honest to goodness Christian ask in what reference, moreover, from where did the person get the text they need the answer for.
Most of us would strategize during our moments because we knew how hard it would be, if the evangelical crowd vied to get involved is comprehensive immigration reform. Which they did of course putting out false statements, papers, and identities. Then when big Heritage Foundation got involved with may of the people mentioned below — we’re not always certain what will spew from the mouth of a person receiving money.
This is the time of year when many pro-amnesty advocates in the pulpit and the press misuse the Bible to try to try to advance their cause. This year, churchgoers are fortunate to have access to a much different explanation of scripture, thanks to the emergence of a group called Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration and to a fascinating panel recently sponsored by the Heritage Foundation to inform congressional staffers and the media.
Kelly Monroe Kullberg, who has organized Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration, is a highly respected evangelical leader. She founded the Veritas Forum at Harvard University in the 1990s, which has since grown into a world-wide movement. Her critique of the sloppy handling of Scripture used by some clergy is irenic yet wide-ranging. At the Heritage panel, she said:
God loves us all. God invites us all to be citizens in his kingdom. He places us in families, tribes and nations, and gives us biblical wisdom about shaping a thriving culture. Like gardening, growing a culture requires discernment and vision. But nowhere in Scripture do we see blanket asylum, blanket amnesty, blanket immigration. We see wise welcome to a well-meaning Ruth or Rahab (the sojourner or ‘ger’ in Hebrew is something like a convert and comes lawfully, as blessing), and we also at times find a Nehemiah leading his nation in the building of walls to cultivate the good and to be set apart from the ways of the ‘foreigner’ (the ‘nekhar’ or ‘zar’) who does not respect the laws, customs and values of the country visited — who does not intend to advance cultural flourishing.
Mark Tooley, the president of Washington’s Institute on Religion and Democracy (on whose board I serve), has been warning his fellow evangelical leaders against a one-sided approach on immigration. His remarks at the Heritage panel included this:
Christians also should be cautioned against sweeping ‘comprehensive’ legislative solutions to deep, pervasive political problems. Solutions to most political challenges are more typically incremental. And in our fallen world, reputed solutions, even when implemented relatively effectively, usually create new problems demanding attention. And in this particular debate we should avoid rhetoric that romanticizes immigrants no less than avoiding demonization.

How many interesting things or expansion of knowledge have you read, seen, or heard lately? This although different area of learning is nothing new in education. In fact, many, if not most of the expert, or most studied individuals we tend to make “Gospel” of the words they uttered, theories they may have come up with, or at the very least, coined jargon (making up of word groups that only apply to that profession) indeed come from these experts.
However and unbeknownst to many outside the educational community just believe what they have heard or seen although predicated upon a theory or postulate with no real science placed behind it may have indeed caused more confusion than anything else in our course of learning.
We would like to submit to you various and sundry facts that we have gained through our regiment of reading, researching, information gathering, and pursuant to the data (scientifically obtained) go on and write some rather interesting articles about these revelatory issues and refer to them as The Fun Articles albeit in just about every aspect of knowledge.
We are proposing well-written articles on subject matter that may be on smuggling operations within our Nation, as well as cartel activity, jihadists’ activity, volumes on educational theory, advocacy supporters, special interest groups, and what over the years have been tragic effects, yet, nothing is done about it.
In one day whilst being open to new things I quasi-learned how the executive and judicial branches of equal government ripped into the legislative branch as though they (Congress) could do no wrong. In addition, those people laying the groundwork for the accusations were somehow involved with either a bonafide administration or have spent several years (25 or more) in various occupations within the government and we feel are entitled to talk.
Furthermore, if we all must really know, there are times when writing about a retired former Secretary of Defense discloses yet another truth about what is happening on the inside that makes me distrust the “Clowns of Washington” even more than I do already.
We here at The Contemplative Thinker would love to enlist or commission articles from our reader’s as well. Please if you’ve got something to say, please send me a draft to any number of email boxes I have registered with Word Press.
So it is now time for some fun! I found this next small bit of information an amazing resource of information, which just happens to be plaguing us and draining America of taxpayer contributed funds. Ready?
The Founder’s generation saw a revolution in reading and discussion. Intelligent colonials of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries felt marooned in an ocean of trees and indifference. The clergy of early New England were Cambridge-educated divines, who founded Harvard (1636) and Yale (1701) to train their sons and grandsons.
Introducing new Founder’s here – Jonathan Edwards, the great preacher and theologian, wrote a wistful letter to a Scottish clergyman. “It might be of particular advantage to me here in this remote part of the world to be better informed of what books there are that are published on the other side of the Atlantic, and especially if there be anything that comes out that is very remarkable.”
The again Lewis Morris, an eccentric New Jersey landowner, amassed a private collection of three thousand books. His instructions: “Do not lend it on any account to anybody whatever, for I know that country (New Jersey) too well to lend books in.
As the eighteenth century progressed, the silence lifted. It wasn’t so much that more people were reading – colonial literacy had always been high – it was that more people knew other readers. Americans knew what other Americans read; in a sense they were reading together.
For those of you and definitely us too, most who remember the Nicolas Cage film with Diane Kruger (nee Heidkruger) National Treasure would acquiesce to their constant memories of Benjamin Franklin. It is when Franklin was in his twenties, he founded the first public library in Philadelphia.
Benjamin Franklin persuaded his friends, who had formed a discussion club, to store their books in a common room, “each of us being at liberty to borrow such as he wished to read at home.”
“In a few years,” travelers found Americans “better instructed and more intelligent than people of the same rank generally are in other countries.”
Late at night – on New Year’s Eve – the Supreme Court dealt a blow to ObamaCare. Or so the Obama Administration felt; not that the ruling was in anyway unlawful, the Supreme Court of the United States finally allowed for — and we mean this — religious liberty not to be screwed over in our Nation.
I can still remember last winter chatting with a “smarter than anything whip” in his junior year during his undergraduate degree coursework at some manner less Ivy League university. First off if someone doesn’t even understand that mandatory abortion pill Mandate does not affect a person’s religious liberties, well than, trust me it is no good trying to move ahead from that point.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor temporarily stopped enforcement of the ObamaCare abortion-pill Mandate, protecting a Christian employer against a grave violation of its religious freedom.
Despite this ruling, the Obama Administration is vowing to fight on. It’s not backing down from its commitment to force even Christian Americans to provide abortion pills. Understanding of course that not all people are even aware of what religious freedom means. I our sphere of influence we admittedly have far more acquaintances, friends, relatives, and work associates that received some sort of religious acculturation from birth to at least their mid-twenties, or until the decision to go to local services was completely their choice.
We understand that not everyone is spiritually bound, or for that matter experience a Christian spirituality. What we are alluding to is in the notion that people can lose their connection to a religious life. However not everyone has a) a religious life, or b) is losing their connection to their’s. It is important to note that it is not the people that matter here in a very small regard, but the Nation’s laws, the Founding, and standard operating procedures that may not be sold out for ObamaCare or any other whimsical idea.
But we’re not backing down either.
We’ve won seven injunctions against the abortion-pill Mandate, and soon we’ll be filing a crucial amicus brief at the Supreme Court.
Now is exactly the right time to join us. Join our brief. Join our committee to protect life and liberty from ObamaCare.
Sign the ACLJ Amicus Brief Against the Abortion-Pill Mandate.
