A Gift from Obama for Notre Dame

After inviting the new “messiah” to bless the graduating students, Notre is receiving the gift of golden rain from above as recompense for their hospitality, four and a half years ago.

While awaiting the final results of a judicial decision on the HHS mandate to pay for birth control / abortion / sterilization, a judge is making them choose between paying $100 per day fine per employee, or bending over in acquiescence to the government.

Notre Dame appears to be bending over.  

Expect worse “gifts” from the anti-messiah.   He’s not done with the U.S. yet.

Supreme Court Justice Delays HHS Mandate

The Little Sisters of the Poor who run a Home for the Aged in Denver,  requested an emergency stay of the HHS mandate, forcing religious organizations to pay for birth control / sterilization / abortion.  After a federal appeals court failed to respond, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor decided late on New Years Eve to block this requirement of Obamacare.  Government officials have until 10am Friday morning to respond.

Sotomayor’s decision excuses the religious organizations from being forced to comply with the birth control / abortion / sterilization mandate while the Supreme Court addresses the issue.

White House, IRS exchanged confidential taxpayer info

White House, IRS exchanged confidential taxpayer info | The Daily Caller.

Sarah Hall Ingram, who is running the IRS arm of Obamacare, has given up confidential taxpayer information to the Obama White House.  This illegal leakage of information occurred in conjunction with Ingram’s attempt to counsel the Obama administration on a religious descrimination lawsuit filed regarding the HHS mandate (forcing payment and participation in abortion).

This is an example of the rectal exam given to pro-life religious organizations on a routine basis by this tyrannical government.

Ingram had headed up the corrupt division of the IRS which oversees the granting of tax exemption, and which had been delaying or refusing this status to organizations which were thought to be conservative, or in opposition to the Obama administration.

Darrel Issa’s House Oversight committee appears to be digging up fresh bones in its investigation of the ever unfolding IRS misuse of information and power.  It would appear from the exposed practices, that Obamacare could expose every single American individual who opposes an Obama policy  to life threatening discrimination.

Comment on HHS Mandate Before April 8

Get on over to the AUL Website to link up to the HHS rules commentary section of the government regulations site.  You can drop your low opinion of the HHS mandate on the Obama administration.  AUL makes it easy for you by supplying some comments for you to use.

Thinking that a more global DUMP was called for,  Pharmer  wrote some  delicately worded and diplomatic commentary ;-)   The most salient portion is in blue, but feel free to use any part if you have a need for speed.

“Since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is neither protective nor affordable, it is more accurately called Obamacare.

Much of the Obamacare concept is conveyed in Obama’s address to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, July 17, 2007. Despite efforts to modify Obamacare and the HHS mandate to reduce the killing component, it will always revert, because killing is at the heart of this concept of health care. Killing is also at the heart of the complete lives system which defines how Obamacare addresses lifelong healthcare. As government mismanages health care, resources become increasingly rare, necessitating the sacrifice of older people to preserve the lives of younger or “more useful” people.

Obamacare and the HHS mandate remain corrupt and immoral at their core. Both are a violation of human rights, most particularly the Right to Life which justified the founding of this nation, and the First Amendment rights which allow us to believe and behave in a civilized manner.

The HHS mandate most immediately enslaves those who respect human life, and forces them to service those who assert a legal authority to kill humans. Eliminating some modes of killing or excusing some social groups from the practice is not sufficient. The entire HHS mandate must be eliminated.

Individuals and groups should have the right to either deliver health care, or obtain health care in a manner which does not violate their right to refuse to kill any human organism.

As with any corrupt economic system, Obamacare will lead to exponential growth of the unregulated and non-taxable, black market, health industry which currently addresses the needs of our newest immigrants as well as our current drug shortages.
If we are able to eliminate Obamacare and the HHS mandate, perhaps we could more efficiently rectify the rampant drug shortages which are causing medical errors and deaths in our hospitals and communities.”

You have until April 8..    GET ER DONE!!!!!

ACLJ Wins Another Injunction Against Obamacare HHS Mandate

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has granted an injunction which excuses the businesses owned by Frank and Phil Gilardi, of Ohio, from compliance with the Obamacare HHS mandate.   The Gilardi’s own food distribution businesses, and operate them in accordance with their Catholic beliefs.  Their health insurance does not cover contraception and abortion.   After a final emergency appeal from the ACLJ,  the Court of Appeals, changed their position on March 29th, allowing the Gilardis to continue to freely practice their religion in their business operations, while their lawsuit opposing the HHS mandate proceeds through the courts.  This is the fifth injunction obtained by the American Center for Law and Justice against the HHS Mandate of Obamacare.

Sioux Chief Plumbing Company Wins Victory Against HHS Mandate

Alliance Defending Freedom has succeeded in winning an injunction for  Sioux Chief Plumbing Company against the Obama HHS mandate.  This brings to 12 the number of victories for businesses and institutions which have brought suit on first amendment grounds against the Obama administration violations of the First Amendment.

Kathleen Sebelius administers this mandate, which forces businesses to pay for abortions, birth control and sterilizations, regardless of their religious beliefs.  The Obama administration holds that anyone who operates a secular business is not permitted to exercise their religious beliefs in their daily lives and their work.

Generally a court will grant an injunction against a law or government regulation when there is good likelihood that there will be a final ruling against the law.

Alliance Defending Freedom is handling eight additional lawsuits against Obama’s Abortifacient HHS mandate.

Breitbart HighlightsAbortionist LeRoy Carhart’s Relationship with Kathleen Sebelius

Woman Dies in Late-Term Abortion Performed by Doctor Linked to Sebelius.

Click above to see Breitbart’s reminder to us of the connection between Kathleen Sebelius, Obama’s HHS Secretary, and LeRoy Carhartt. Sebelius hosted a big abortion dinner party for 25 guests, the staff at George Tiller’s famous clinc, which made Kansas the late term abortion capital of the U.S.
LeRoy Carhartt was one of the illuminaries who worked with Tiller at the time, and he and his wife Mary Lou Carhart attended the dinnner at the Governor’s mansion.

Operation Rescue has the story and the pics of this event, HERE.

Breitbart points out LeRoy Carhart’s political and legal history, as well as the national renown which has drawn thousands of protestors to his clinic when it opened and as it continues to operate.

The mainstream media is trying hard to ignore the latest botched abortion at Carhart’s clinic in Germantown, Maryland, in which both mom and 33 week old baby were killed. The blogosphere will not let this story be swept under the rug.

New HHS Mandate Amendment Still Violates First Amendment

Proposal to amend ObamaCare contraceptive rule met with skepticism | Fox News.

Kathleen (Cruella) Sebelius, has slightly broadened conscience exceptions in the HHS mandate. The new amendment still shows her desire to remove all of those who religiously object to paying for birth control, abortion and sterilizations, from the world of business. This is much worse than a status of dhimmitude for strict opponents of abortion, and would serve to force them out of the taxable portion of the U.S. economy. With this amendment, the administration shows that it is not serious about addressing the debt problem by allowing the INFLUX of tax dollars.

The HHS mandate remains a significant part of the many pronged effort by the Obama administration to remove the United States from its position as a world economic leader.

Lawyer for Catholic Health Intitiatives Tosses out Church Directives in Lawsuit Defense.

In malpractice case, Catholic hospital argues fetuses aren’t people | The Colorado Independent.

This legal maneuver doesn’t  enhance the public image of Catholic Health Initiatives, and you can bet that Obama’s vultures are circling.  It appears from reports that Lori Stodghill lost her life at Thomas More Hospital in Canon City due to a pulmonary embolism which led to a massive heart attack.  Her two unborn babies also died, and  the current lawsuit argues that this need not have happened.  Dr. Pelham Staples, the  hospital’s obstetrician on call did not answer his pager, for reasons unspecified in the reports.

The surprise inside this case is the lawyer, proffering a defense that the babies are not legal persons, and therefore are not protected by Colorado malpractice statutes.  Lawyer Jason Langley argued that the court “should not overturn the long-standing rule in Colorado that the term ‘person,’ as is used in the Wrongful Death Act, encompasses only individuals born alive. Colorado state courts define ‘person’ under the Act to include only those born alive. Therefore Plaintiffs cannot maintain wrongful death claims based on two unborn fetuses.”

This kind of defense is not a good idea for Catholic Health Initiatives for a number of ethical reasons.   It could also cost their member institutions  more in philanthropic contributions than the cost of losing the Stodghill lawsuit.

It also undermines any Catholic objections to the HHS mandate.  Obama’s team must be laughing themselves silly to see such a bad maneuver by this significant group of  ideological opponents.

Is this battle worth losing the war?
