    Former Sen. Alan Simpson, a Republican, is making the case for a “live and let live” approach to same-sex marriage in a new television ad buy targeting Western states, just as a federal appeals court in Denver prepares to take up the issue later this week. “Whether you’re gay or lesbian or straight, if you love someone and you want to marry them, marry them,” Simpson, of Wyoming, says in the spot. The six-figure buy, sponsored by the pro-gay marriage group Freedom to Marry, is slated to start airing on Tuesday on national cable channels, as well as locally in...

    Koranic law: Coming to a city near youA panel of federal judges has ruled that states cannot protect their courts from jurists who base their decisions on international or Koranic law. America needs better judges. On Tuesday, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a federal district court order blocking implementation of an amendment to the Oklahoma constitution that sought to ban judges from using international or Muslim law as a basis for deciding cases. The amendment was approved in November 2010 by a 70 percent popular vote but has never been enforced. Plaintiff Muneer Awad, executive director of the...

  • Obama Nomination of Six For Appeals Court Shows Abortion Extremism

    Demonstrating allegiance to the pro-abortion agenda, Stephen Six successfully captured the attention of President Obama and recently received a judicial nomination to the Federal Appeals Court. That’s bad news for America and here’s why: Mr. Six is notorious for using political powers to protect the abortion industry. As Kansas Attorney General, he personally thwarted the investigation and prosecution of crimes committed by Planned Parenthood. The state’s abortion centers knowingly took advantage of more than 160 minors, covering for rapists and turning a profit off of pain. In addition, Planned Parenthood blatantly conducted at least 39 illegal late-term abortions. A shocking...

    No, it was not a headline from the satirical newspaper, The Onion. It was just the latest scorn by President Obama toward conservatives everywhere, and conservative women in particular. The President has seriously nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit Stephen Six, whose prints are all over the obstruction of justice in an investigation of an alleged systematic statutory rape cover-up at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas. The people of Kansas know Steven Six well. Radical pro-abortion advocate Kathleen Sebelius, former Kansas Governor and now Secretary of the Department of Health & Human Services ,...

    DENVER (AP) -- Lawyers for the state of Wyoming and the Colorado Mining Association say a 2001 federal rule banning construction of new roads on National Forest land violates the law. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver heard oral arguments Wednesday in Wyoming's lawsuit challenging the rule. The U.S. Department of Agriculture — the parent agency of the National Forest Service — and environmental groups argue the rule is legal.

    Washington DC, Apr 4, 2008 / 06:40 am (CNA).- The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case in its next term to decide whether a Utah city must allow a monument to be installed in a public park by a New Age group that promotes pyramids, mummification, and sexual ecstasy, Cybercast News Service reports. This week Supreme Court justices agreed to hear a case involving a Salt Lake City-based religion called Summum, whose founder claims to have been visited by “highly intelligent beings.”  The group, arguing on First Amendment grounds, has sought to erect a monument to its “Seven Aphorisms”...

    Federal Appeals Court Rejects Demand of "Transsexuals" for Special Rights DENVER, September 26, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A federal appeals court has issued a significant ruling saying that an employer's concern over the use of restrooms by "transsexual" employees is legitimate, according to Alliance Defense Fund Senior Legal Counsel Brian Raum.  Raum explained further that the court ruled that "transsexuals" do not qualify as a protected class under Title VII. "The court delivered a significant legal punch to political special interest groups who are demanding that persons with Gender Identity Disorder be treated as though they were members of the opposite...

    The American Civil Liberties Union has argued in recent years that the right to privacy is so expansive it extends even to partial-birth abortion, in which a doctor kills a fully formed, almost-born child with scissors. "The ACLU has a long history of vigorously defending the right to privacy -- including the right to reproductive freedom," the organization told the Supreme Court last year in a brief arguing that partial-birth abortion is a constitutional right. But two recent court cases demonstrate there is at least one place where the ACLU rejects the right to privacy -- at least for certain...

    A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by a bus driver who was fired while preparing to undergo a sex-change operation. Krystal Etsitty was fired after she began using women's restrooms on her route. She sued alleging she was fired because she was a transsexual and because she didn't conform to expectations of stereotypical male behavior. According to the ruling from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Etsitty had been undergoing hormone therapy to prepare for the operation and presenting herself as a woman but still had male genitalia when she was fired....

    Bakersfield Californian ^ | 7/12/05 | Jon Sarche - AP
    DENVER (AP) - A federal appeals court dismissed an attempt by environmental groups to restore a Clinton-era ban on logging in roadless areas of national forests, saying their appeal became irrelevant when the Bush administration adopted a replacement rule. The Clinton administration's rule put 58.5 million acres of roadless forest off-limits to logging and other development. Under the new rule, those lands, most of which are in the West, are open to road building for potential logging, mining and other commercial uses. A federal judge in Wyoming struck down the Clinton administration's ban in 2003, ruling in a lawsuit filed...

    WASHINGTON — The Bush administration has placed the name of Michael McConnell, a judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and former University of Utah professor, on its list of potential Supreme Court nominees, highlighting a conservative legal scholar whose opposition to abortion and provocative ideas about church and state has prompted liberal groups to announce their opposition before there is even a court vacancy.

    Feddie Says Rehnquist Stepping Down Steve "Feddie" Dillard, Grand Poobah of Southern Appeal, has revealed that a reliable source has told him that Chief Justice Rehnquist will be stepping down in the next 4 weeks. Feddie is pretty well connected in those circles, so I have no reason to doubt it. Besides that, it's what everyone is expected anyway. He is predicting that Michael McConnell will be the choice to replace him, which is the same person I've been predicting for the last few months. McConnell is solidly conservative, but not in a partisan manner. He's an intellectual conservative, not...

    WASHINGTON - With the news that Chief Justice Rehnquist will not return to the bench this week because of treatment for thyroid cancer, speculation has intensified that he may step down after President Bush's inauguration. On the list of potential Supreme Court nominees to replace him is Judge Michael McConnell, a jurist with bipartisan appeal who sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit. The Kentucky native received the enthusiastic backing of conservative groups as well as some prominent liberal law professors when he was nominated to the appeals bench by the president in 2001. He also...
