Over 40 Catholic groups across the nation have filed a dozen federal lawsuits to halt President Obama’s contraception mandate requiring employers — including Christian and other religious groups — to include free birth control and sterilization in the health insurance they provide employees. The groups named in the suits, including Notre Dame, Catholic University of America, and the Archdiocese of New York, “accuse the federal government of forcing them to support contraception, sterilization, and birth control in violation of their religious beliefs or face steep fines.”
 The fact that so many successful politicians are such shameless liars is not only a reflection on them, it is also a reflection on us. When the people want the impossible, only liars can satisfy them, and only in the short run. The current outbreaks of riots in Europe show what happens when the truth catches up with both the politicians and the people in the long run.
 A pro-life leader has won a victory in her efforts to convince soft-drink manufacturer PepsiCo to stop the use of aborted fetal cells in its research for enhancing the flavors of its products. Debi Vinnedge, executive director of Children of God for Life (COGFL), announced that in late April she had received a letter from Paul Boykas, PepsiCo’s vice president for Global Public Policy, confirming that the company will not allow the use of HEK-293 — a cell line derived from human embryonic kidney — in its partnership with Senomyx, the company with which it had inked a four-year, $30 million contract for flavor research.
In an effort to curb growing discontent with ObamaCare, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has hired a public relations firm to help underscore portions of the law.
House Speaker John Boehner is right when he says President Obama should reimburse the taxpayers for travel expenses connected with campaigning. In fact, Boehner and the Republicans should reimburse the taxpayers as well. They should reimburse the taxpayers for the trillions of dollars taken from them to fund things the government is not authorized by the Constitution to do in the first place.
Executive Orders to reduce regulatory burdens on the economy, such as the one issued last week by President Obama, are likely to have little if any effect. A better solution is for Congress, which created the monstrous regulatory state, and which still has the power to shut it down, to starve the agencies by failing to renew their requests for operating funds.  
A new study published by the Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) could proffer a formidable challenge to the Obama administration’s regulated approach to tapering healthcare costs, as the analysis found that healthcare spending is growing moderately, up 3.3 percent in 2010 but still three times the pace of general inflation.
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy wrote a piece for PJ Media describing an article about the NDAA written by Joe Wolverton in The New American as "hysteria" and "absurd."
Demography may not be destiny, but it sure is close. As minorities, who reliably vote for Democratic candidates, begin to outnumber whites, who often vote for Republicans, will we see a tipping point where Republican presidential candidates stand little chance of winning?
Despite the attempts by many to portray the opposition to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) as “absurd,” the ranks of the resistance to this tyrannical act grow larger day by day. On May 26 at 10:00 a.m. at a park across the street from the Northumberland County Courthouse in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, State Constable Ed Quiggle, Jr. will add his name to that noble roster by signing a resolution he proposed that calls for the nullification of the NDAA.
