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.
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.
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.
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.
Planned Parenthood will be the organization, charged by the government, to teach sex to kids.
It bothers many people that pharmaceutical manufacturers spend 20 percent of their revenue on advertising to consumers and prescribers.
Why does it not bother them that planned parenthood, the tax funded abortion and birth control purveyor, is used to educate the kids in school, on behaviors that insure need for that organization?
Why also does it bother people that churches give an opinion on a social issue at election time, but it does not bother people that both Kathleen Sebelius, and Cecile Richards-of planned parenthood were out stumping for Obama.
Shop at Hobby Lobby! They’re now the largest privately owned company to sue the Obama administration over its Health and Human Services Mandate. David Green, the CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby explains that he will pay 1.3 million dollars in fines if he refuses to buy insurance that covers types of birth control that Evangelical Christians oppose. The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty is providing legal representation in this challenge to the HHS Mandate.
Prayers for the success of Mr. Green and the Hobby Lobby Corporation in their efforts to defend religious freedom.
The Office of Special Counsel has determined that on February 25, 2012, Kathleen Sebelius made partisan comments during a speech made in her official capacity. This is a violation of the Hatch Act which constrains public official from political activity to affect the outcome of an election.
The HHS department, after the fact, reclassified the trip as personal and Sebelius had to reimburse the costs.
The Report by the OCS has been sent to the president and it will go absolutely Nowhere.
It would be good to check who paid for Sebelius’ trip to the DNC to shill and resell Obamacare a week ago.
We have some indication that Chick-Fil-A hasn’t been worrying about their employee’s private sex lives in the above article. But worklife is different now. Gays working for the company have been caught in the middle of the leftie war against their company, which was touched off by CEO Dan Cathy’s personal belief about gay marriage.
Apparently the homosexual employees are either getting blamed for hating gays, because of the gay marriage issue, or being thanked for opposition to it.
Some of what they hear is off point and crazy: “I hope you choke on your chicken” and either support or opposition because “your company hates gays”.
The situation of homosexual employees at Chick-fil-A brings home the point that everyone’s lives would be easier, including the those of gays, if the lefties would quit their war on freedom of religion. We notice that the lefties prefer to attack Christians, for opposing gay marriage, while at the same time supporting the sects of Muslims who chop the heads off of homosexuals.
Both the Beta and the marketed version of the Birth Control Gurl program are equally worthless with respect to output content, but as you can see below, Kathleen Sebelius, the Beta version, delivers the output haltingly as though there is a misconfiguration of the audio output device driver.
Watch the fun as Congressman Trey Gowdy questions Sebelius on her efforts to examine the constitutionality of the HHS mandate.
Senator Harry Reid has changed his mind, and decided to allow Sen. Roy Blunt’s Bill to repeal Obama’s birth control/abortive drugs/sterilization mandate to pass to the full Senate for a vote.
This new decision comes after Obamanator’s unilateral “compromise” to shift the administration of the mandate to insurance companies. This includes all the religious entities which are self insured. The compromise still steps on freedom of religion, still has religious organizations paying for things they consider sinful, and still forces people to sell and to buy things which they don’t want.
Here are two possible motivations: One is that Reid’s constituency includes a lot of self insured religious organizations, and they climbed down his throat.
Another is that Obama needs to bail on this very unconstitutional mandate, and Reid has been ordered to allow Congress to rescind it.
You might want to inform your Senators and Congressmen that you expect them to kill the abortive mandate of Obama/Sebelius. It is likely that most of the Dems realize that all their religious voter support will evaporate if they don’t vote for Sen. Blunt’s legislation.
Kathleen Sebelius has more wrong with her than pro-abortion extremism. (She’s the one who has protected Planned Parenthood in Kansas from the legal consequences of failing to report sexual abuse of minors.)
Obama directed Sebelius, who headed a trial lawyers association for 8 years, to move forward on health care tort reform. As anyone would expect, her progress is zero, because she can’t stop feeding her own.
Linked above is the tale of a 65 million dollar court decision against an exercise equipment company. The award goes to a physical therapist who was paralyzed when a Cybex leg EXTENSION machine fell on her. She had been using the machine incorrectly, standing beside it and pulling it backwards to STRETCH. So far, the company has been appealing and the last decision cut the award to 44 million.
With court decisions like this….. bookshelf makers should also stop production. Those things can be pulled down on top of people also.
Forbes contributor, Matt Kibbe estimates that tort litigation costs each American individual $838 per year, and suggests that such legal maneuvering makes up 27% of health care costs. That might be worth Kathleen Sebelius’s attention.
