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.

State Department Uses IRS Playbook

By Matthew Clark1432157351344

Yesterday’s revelation that the State Department is processing (read: stonewalling) 50,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but that none of those emails will be ready for public consumption until sometime in January 2016 is unsurprising. Those emails cover everything from the...

By Jay Sekulow1432046193785

Two years ago this month, we learned of the burgeoning scandal at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – the deliberate targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups – a coordinated move to keep these groups on the sidelines during a critical election. We are in federal court representing dozens of...

By Edward White1431954000000

During the 1980s, there was a popular comedy show on the BBC called Yes Minister . The show involved a politician who was often thwarted by a member of the unelected civil service bureaucracy when he proposed legislation or reforms that were not beneficial to the bureaucracy. As in the fictional...
