There’s a political ad that’s hard to miss. It shows President Obama at a recent news conference saying “the private sector is doing fine.” The Obama campaign says the comment is taken out of context. Is it really?

Chief Justice John Roberts probably made as good a case as could be made for upholding the constitutionality of ObamaCare by defining one of its key features as a "tax." Yet what he did was betray his oath to be faithful to the Constitution of the United States. Who he betrayed were the hundreds of millions of Americans — past, present and future — whole generations in the past who have fought and died for a freedom that he has put in jeopardy.

On June 18, Governor John Lynch of New Hampshire signed into law HB 146, a bill granting to juries in that state the right “to judge the application of the law in relationship to the facts in controversy.”

Last Thursday's Supreme Court decision on "ObamaCare" and its individual mandate was a supreme act of political, intellectual and judicial prostitution — otherwise known as the "supreme law of the land."

Nowhere is political rhetoric more shameless — or more dangerous — than in the pious names that politicians give to the legislation they pass. Perhaps the most egregious example is the so-called "Indian Child Welfare Act," which callously sacrifices the welfare of Indian children.

Whenever we think we have five votes for the Constitution on anything, at least one of the "conservative" justices may be counted on to go into the tank. Did we really think it would be different with Georgiebird's (Bush the Lesser’s) first pick for the high court sitting as chief justice?

If there were a Hall of Fame for political rhetoric, the phrase "social justice" would deserve a prominent place there. It has the prime virtue of political catchwords: It means many different things to many different people.

Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson announced his intention on Friday to give $10 million to political action committees controlled by Charles and David Koch who in turn are themselves giving substantial sums to unseat President Obama and turn control of the Senate back to the Republican Party.
