The full District of Columbia appeals court is being asked to rule on a case against Obamacare after a three-judge panel decided the U.S. Senate can initiate a tax law, even though the U.S. Constitution’s requires that all such measures originate in the U.S. House.
WND reported two months ago when Judge Judith Rogers reasoned for the three-judge panel that if the aim of Obamacare is to force people to buy government-approved health insurance, the hundreds of billions of dollars in tax increases Read more [...]

Richland schools are phasing out swings on the playground citing that they have caused most injuries of any play equipment.
“As schools get modernized or renovated or as we’re doing work on the playground equipment, we’ll take out the swings. It’s just really a safety issue, swings have been determined to be the most unsafe of all the playground equipment on a playground,” Richland School District’s Steve Aagard told KEPR.
The district also cited that pressure from insurance companies Read more [...]

This is how it goes in America today: a Muslim screaming what were reported as “Islamic phrases” beheads one woman and is in the process of beheading another before he is stopped. The beheader’s Facebook page shows his allegiance to the Islamic State, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, etc. A former member of his mosque comes forward with information about how the mosque teaches jihad and Islamic supremacism. And then what happens? An investigation of the mosque? The imam questioned as to whether Read more [...]
How many of you would ever consider giving your mom or wife a shotgun, rifle or handgun for Mother’s Day, birthday or even Christmas? After reading this, you may want to consider giving her a gift that could save her life.
One Oklahoma mom was given a 12 gauge shotgun for Mother’s Day by her son. In September, she was very thankful for that gift when she heard someone trying to break into her house. Her handicapped daughter was asleep in the house at the time and mom’s protective instincts Read more [...]
Two years ago, there were over 40 abortion facilities operating in Texas with very little oversight. Yesterday, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling that could result in the immediate closure of 13 abortion facilities, leaving only seven open by this weekend.
A spot-check conducted by Operation Rescue early Friday morning of several facilities that are in known non-compliance with the law shows that some have already shut down while others continue to operate.
The ruling blocks Read more [...]
LPresident Obama bragged to Hispanics Thursday night that he rode over to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s 37th Annual Awards Gala event with two illegal ‘DREAMERS.’
Despite his promise to not “give up this fight until it gets done,” a few audience members were unsatisfied and interrupted the president’s politically motivated speech.
Blanca Hernandez, an example of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, was escorted from the event, according Read more [...]
We’re reported on the new technology that is putting fear in the hearts of tyrants: 3d printing. We’ve watched as it has produced an AR-15 semi-automatic pistol, a handgun made totally out of ABS plastic except for the metal firing pin, a metal 1911 handgun, prosthetics and brain tissue, even houses. Now, Cody Wilson has introduced the Ghost Gunner milling machine to produce your own metal AR-15 lower that doesn’t require a serial number, and the first batch sold out in just 36 hours.

Attorney General Eric Holder should be held in contempt of court for refusing to release “Fast and Furious” documents in line with a judge’s order — and even given jail time if necessary, lawmakers said.
Members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee requested U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson to fine Mr. Holder if he doesn’t comply with her own order issued back in August — the one where she said he couldn’t claim executive privilege to keep private certain Read more [...]
In recent weeks Bill Maher has become less tolerant of the left’s cover of the intolerant Islamists and has said so on his television show.
This week he engaged in that discussion with his panel, which included as a member the actor turned activist for Islam, Ben Affleck. Affleck has some real problems with the content of the conversation and the connection of Islam to intolerance, brutality, murder and other atrocities consistent with the radical’s 7th century belief system.

The federal government is not considering a travel ban to the United States from Africa, thanks to a “sophisticated multi layer screening system" at airports in Africa, according to the White House.
“If we can screen through the transportation system to ensure that individuals that are exhibiting symptoms don't have access to a transportation system, then you can keep the transportation system secure,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained to reporters aboard Air Force One.

You’re going to hear a lot of cheerleading this weekend about the unemployment number dropping to the lowest since 2008. Sorry to be a wet-blanket (for your information, my daughter tells me people read my writing to get depressed), but it all comes down to how the number is (mis-)calculated today.
