  • [Catholic Caucus] The Ninth Sunday After Pentecost (Gueranger)

    Green Semidouble THE LAMENTATION over Jerusalem’s woes is, in the Western Church, the subject of today’s Gospel; and it gave its name to this ninth Sunday after Pentecost, at least among the Latins. We have already observed that it is easy to find, even in the Liturgy as it now stands, traces of how the early Church was all attention to the approaching fulfillment of the prophecies against Jerusalem, that ungrateful City, upon which our Jesus heaped his earliest favors. The last limit put by mercy upon justice has, at length, been passed. Our Lord, speaking of the ruin...

    A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday in favor of 21 children and young adults suing the U.S. government for not doing enough to protect their constitutional right to a stable climate. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judges refused to grant mandamus relief and block the U.S. District Court in Oregon from hearing the suit, which was originally filed by the environmental group Our Children’s Trust in 2015. A federal judge in Oregon ruled in 2016 the 21 youngsters had standing to sue. President Donald Trump’s administration and oil and gas groups appealed the decision in June 2017. They asked...
  • Ninth Circuit rules taxpayers don't have to provide lawyers for illegal immigrant children

    In a decision that is shockingly sensible, a three judge panel of the notorious Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal in San Francisco has ruled that illegal immigrant children are not entitled to free legal representation, funded by taxpayers, in trying to legalize their status. Maura Dolan writes in the Los Angeles Times: A three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an immigration judge's decision to deny asylum to a minor identified as C.J.L.G., who left Honduras at age 13 after being threatened by gangs. The boy did not have a lawyer, and his mother was unable...
  • Judges Reject Orange County's Claim That Social Workers Didn't Know Lying In Court Was Wrong

    Using taxpayer funds, government officials in Orange County have spent the last 16 years arguing the most absurd legal proposition in the entire nation: How could social workers have known it was wrong to lie, falsify records and hide exculpatory evidence in 2000 so that a judge would forcibly take two young daughters from their mother for six-and-a-half years? From the you-can't-make-up-this-crap file, county officials are paying Lynberg & Watkins, a private Southern California law firm specializing in defending cops in excessive force lawsuits, untold sums to claim the social workers couldn't have "clearly" known that dishonesty wasn't acceptable in...
  • Possible 9th victim contacts cops in Sandusky case [another Penn State coach victim?]

    MONTOURSVILLE, Pa. — Another potential victim has contacted authorities in the child sexual abuse investigation of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, a state police criminal investigation supervisor said Tuesday. The man, now an adult, contacted the department on Sunday after seeing media accounts of Sandusky's arrest, Lt. David Young at the Montoursville station said. Young said investigators took a statement from him and forwarded it to the Rockview station for officers there to pursue. The Patriot-News of Harrisburg, which first reported that the man had come forward, said he is in his 20s, knew Sandusky from The Second...

    The problem with putting the Ninth Amendment into effect today is that many no longer appreciate the Natural Rights that the Constitution's framers took for granted. Amendment IX: “The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” There is little, if any, question that the rights retained by the people refer, at least in part, to what are called "Natural Rights" 11—that is, the rights people have independent of those they are granted by a government and by which the justice of governmental action is to be judged....

    For the Jewish community, the election of Barack Obama has presented a major dilemma. The candidate they voted for is not the president they got, especially when it comes to Israel. Even if you could conjure up the ghost of John Foster Dulles, you could not find an administration more hostile to the Jewish state and more unconcerned about the anti-Semitic fallout from pursuing policies based on antipathy to Israel. Obama’s antagonism toward Israel has been eloquently addressed by such leading Democratic figures as former New York City Mayor Ed Koch and legal scholar Alan Dershowitz. Recently, actor Jon Voigt,...

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. Aside from contending that a bill of rights was unnecessary, the Federalists responded to those opposing ratification of the Constitution because of the lack of a declaration of fundamental rights by arguing that inasmuch as it would be impossible to list all rights it would be dangerous to list some because there would be those who would seize on the absence of the omitted rights to assert that government was unrestrained as to those.

Suppose your work required you to spend a few days in downtown Los Angeles. If you had business to conduct, say, with the city government, you might choose to stay at the very posh New Otani Hotel, at the corner of First and Los Angeles Streets. Just west of the hotel is the civic center, including City Hall and the various county courthouses. Beyond the courthouses you'll find the cultural heart of the city, with the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney...

The three-judge panel of the full court further ruled that parents "have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of...
