We have confirmed that Congressman Walter Jones will be appearing on our radio broadcast today.  As many of you know, Congressman Jones is the primary sponsor of the request from the White House for an Executive Order protecting Chaplains and their ability to pray according to the dictates of their heart.  I am optimistic with the overwhelming support that we have received from around the country.   We will also be joined by Randy Singer from the North American Home Mission Board.  Randy serves as their General Counsel and has been very concerned about Navy Chaplains who have been denied the right to pray according to their faith commitments.  Randy also serves as a member of our legal advisory board here at the American Center for Law and Justice. 

 

On the legal front, we are working on our Reply Brief in the Operation Rescue v. National Organization for Women case.  We are optimistic that we are once again going to carry the day at the Supreme Court of the United States.  At issue is the application of the RICO statute to pro-life protests.  We won this case at the Supreme Court of the United States two years ago with an 8-1 victory.  I anticipate getting the same results here.  Our brief is due in about ten days.  We are working diligently on the brief.

 

I am on my way to our office in Washington, D.C. where I will appear tomorrow on C-SPAN to discuss with Michael Newdow the case that he has involving the Pledge of Allegiance.  The U.S. District Court in California has once again ruled the Pledge unconstitutional and that case is on its way to the Supreme Court of the United States.

We’ve seen this movie before. With the Obama administration, a familiar pattern is emerging. Trusting his own wisdom, President Obama resists oversight, goes to legal war against leakers and whistleblowers (at least those who make it look bad), and launches or proposes military offensives against...

Brian Williams and the Tyranny of Ego

By David French1423239448378

Like so many others , I find it impossible to believe Brian Williams simply “made a mistake.” At the risk of indulging in armchair pop psychology, I’d say it’s far more likely that a titanic ego collided with reality, and reality lost. In my own experience, there are few things more humbling than...

The Power of Satire

By Matthew Clark1416850646137

You know its bad for President Obama when the late night comedy shows start cutting through his Administration’s mainstream media-memorizing spin and exposing his lawlessness. Conservatives aren’t the only ones shouting from the rooftops about President Obama’s reckless disregard for the...

Chuck Hagel Failed His Impossible Job

By David French1416847845197

I would say that I pity Chuck Hagel. After all, here was his mandate: Maintain America’s strategic position while shrinking American military power and amplifying the Obama administration’s desires for global disengagement. It turns out that the SECDEF could accomplish only two of those missions.
