  • America is getting everything but justice from Obama's Justice Department

    The Obama administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is “unethical” and “intentionally deceptive.” Harsh words, right? You’d expect that kind of criticism came from a political opponent or maybe even from a conservative commentator. But no – that’s not the case. In fact, that stinging assessment came from a district court in Texas – the same court that blocked President Obama’s unlawful Executive Order on immigration to award legal status and federal and state benefits to nearly five million aliens. That case is now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court and a decision could come at any time. Just last week,...

    The ACLJ has secured an important victory in our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case against the IRS on behalf of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire. After a year of litigation, which followed over four months of waiting for the IRS to respond to its FOIA request, we finally succeeded in compelling the IRS to comply with its obligations under federal law. As we have previously written, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire issued a FOIA request to the IRS in June 2014 seeking communications between two New Hampshire legislators and certain IRS officials, including Lois Lerner, the IRS's...

    Fox News ^ | Thursday, March 19, 2015 | Jay Sekulow
    President Obama is angry with Israeli voters for re-electing Benjamin Netanyahu, and he’s willing to risk the lives and security of Israeli citizens to show it. The State Department is reportedly considering reversing the decades-long policy of protecting Israel’s security at the United Nations and is threatening to allow the Security Council to compel Israel to enter forced negotiations with Hamas-controlled Palestine. This action would be reckless—and shameful. At a time when anti-Semitic attacks are rocking Europe, and the need for a secure, Jewish state has rarely been more apparent, the Obama administration would force Israel to negotiate with entities...
  • Paris Lessons: US Must Revoke Citizenship of Americans Who Join ISIS, Al Qaeda

    Last week, France faced the threat that is arguably the toughest to defeat—a threat from within, from its own terrorists. By now, the stories are familiar. France has a problem with homegrown radicals. At least 900 French citizens are among the 2,000 to 3,000 westerners who’ve left home for jihadist training or to fight for ISIS in Syria and Iraq. In many ways, the western jihadist represents the worst threat. Able to speak the language fluently, completely familiar with their home countries, and possessing a key weapon -- an American, British, French, or German passport -- they can easily cross...

    In his address to the nation last week, President Obama declared to the nation — to the world — that ISIS (also known as ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) was not Islamic. Across the globe, jaws dropped. It’s not my purpose today to cite chapter and verse why President Obama is wrong. Pundits have been doing that for days. Instead, I want to focus on the deeper question: Why is ISIS’ Islamic identity critical to its appeal to the Muslim world?

    The Obama administration has apparently decided it’s time to bury the IRS targeting scandal. No more fake repentance. No more expressions of concern for systematically violating the constitutional rights of American citizens. Just end it. Move on. Pretend it never happened. And why not? After all, President Obama won reelection, his base hates the Tea Party anyway (and believes conservatives deserve any punishment they get), and the media had moved on to covering national catastrophes – like lane closures in New Jersey. So it was time to end the pretense.

Under reconciliation, the Democrats would need only 51 votes in the Senate to pass the bill. “What we’ll do is hope he (Reid) can still find 60 votes, but if not, we’ll have to go to the simple majority, and that simple majority confines the issues that we can address,” Pelosi said during a news conference in the speaker’s balcony hallway on Tuesday. “I’ll tell you where...

    By a vote of 4-3, the California Supreme Court struck down a state ban on same-sex marriage – changing the definition of marriage by judicial fiat. The decision is a disappointing one and represents another example of an activist judiciary that overreached by taking this issue out of the hands of the state legislature where it belongs. The California high court failed to uphold what the state legislature and an overwhelming majority of California voters clearly understand – that the institution of marriage is limited to one man and one woman.

    I came to the courtroom early, before the proceedings began. The podium was adjustable, right? I lowered it.

Today the 700,000-member center...

The brief, submitted by the American Center for Law and Justice, represents the views of thirty-one pro-life members of Congress. The brief asks a federal appeals court in San Francisco to overturn a decision issued by U.S. District Court Judge Phyllis Hamilton declaring the ban unconstitutional because it lacks a health exception. "The ban is needed to put an end to one of the most barbaric and medically useless...
