The Original Employer Mandate Lawsuit
On October 1, 2013 I filed a lawsuit against four components of the Obama administration regarding the illegal cancellation of the employer mandate. The predicate of my claim to standing was the fact that I paid attorneys' fees and invested my time, energy, and resources to be sure that my orthodontic business was in compliance with a law that I didn’t agree with. Speaker Boehner filed suit on the employer mandate as well, claiming institutional standing. I wish him the best of luck with his case and glad to see that he joined my efforts, although it is more than one year later and we are already at the level of the 11th Circuit Court. If we are given standing on our case, the House will be required to discontinue its case. One of the prerequisites of pursuing litigation is that the House would be unable to do so if there is a private case that achieves standing on the same subject, the employer mandate. [more...]
Oscar Season Picks
By James Hirsen
It's that time of year again, the Oscar season, that is, and the Hollywood campaigns are in full swing. The Academy requires a film to be released prior to the end of the year in question in order to qualify for an award, and because of this a slew of Oscar-seeking cinema is just about to hit the theaters. Interestingly, to compete for an Academy Award, movies are also required to be up on screens for a full week within the year of consideration, which means the last chance for any would-be Oscar contender to be released is on Christmas Day. Consequently, this year Santa will be delivering a sizable sack-full of film debuts that deal with not so jolly subjects, the reason being these are the types of movies that are considered by critics to be more Oscar worthy.

If I understood the President correctly, the 4.4 million immigrants who just got their "get out of jail free card" are no longer considered illegal; they are simply called the UNDOCUMENTED. The President, as usual, referenced a young woman who had been in the U.S. illegally - I mean UNDOCUMENTED - since she was 4 years old. Apparently Mom and Dad were also illegal, or rather, UNDOCUMENTED. She is now a college student working on her third degree. A very admirable story. She beat the system and now can come out of the shadows. She will not be able to vote, for now, nor will she be able to have access to Obamacare, for now, but there is always the ER. Time and the realization of who she will vote for will change all that. [more...]
Sheriff Believes 'Criminal Activity' Occurring at Taxpayer-Funded School Sex Conference
By Kyle Olson
Believing there may be some "criminal activity" going on at a taxpayer-funded school sex conference, the local sheriff is seeking to shut it down. Sheriff Tom Bergin says he's reached out to the Clatsop County District Attorney because he believes "there may be some criminal activity at the conference," according to KOIN. The Oregon House of Representatives education committee may also look into the conference that reportedly taught students "how to access cybersex and even were encouraged to Skype each other while masturbating."

Our Emperor and Chief
By Joe Messina
Just like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Tse-tung before him, Mr. Obama has been openly laying out his plan in his speeches across the country - in his words as dictated by his teleprompter. On many occasions he reiterated that he lacked the legal authority to take action on the immigration issue. He admitted that there were presidents before him that broke that law and that he was going to hide behind them and break the law himself... because he's a "take action" kind of guy. Hello, Mr. President, are you now saying that you have the right to break the law because others before you have done it? [more...]
Are Our Political Leaders Making the U.S. Into a Banana Republic?
What is President Obama's real political agenda with his executive action on immigration? Will the Congressional Republicans overreact or cleverly deal with the White House? Where is their immigration plan? Why can’t Keystone pass the Senate when so many Americans favor it? Why does the media give the administration a pass when they overinflate the Obamacare sign-up numbers? This – and much more – will be discussed by the POLITICAL INSIDERS. [more...]
