    I just finished reading Brian Sullivan’s Reform battles rollback as Romney pledges to repeal Obama's financial regulations regarding the differences between Romney and Obama on the financial services regulations known as Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley. Sullivan’s piece is mostly what you would expect from a mainstream media outlet. It’s a topical check list of “On the one hand Romney wants, on the other hand Obama says…” that is just a series of campaign infomercials disguised as balanced analysis. (Please see my personal plea at the end of this article for USA Cares this Memorial Day- and please... give generously)     And it illustrates what’s really...

    The archbishop of Washington on Sunday accused the network news programs of having "missed the boat" by largely ignoring lawsuits filed this past week by Catholic institutions challenging the Obama administration's so-called contraception mandate. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, speaking on "Fox News Sunday," was responding to an analysis by the conservative Media Research Center of how the networks' evening newscasts treated coverage of the dozen federal lawsuits filed Monday. According to the center, CBS spent 19 seconds on the story after it broke, while the other networks gave it no coverage. "It is puzzling, particularly since they're focusing so much attention...

    STORRS, Conn. -- Gay and play hockey? You're welcome at the University of Connecticut. That is the message the school's men's hockey team is sending out in two videos for a program called You Can Play. The goal of the international initiative launched in March is to work to end homophobia in hockey. "We thought it was a great idea to show the community how we feel about homosexuality in sports, and let people know that anyone can play on our team," said UConn captain Sean Ambrosie. The public service videos are posted on YouTube and the UConn website, and...

    WASHINGTON A quiet transformation is taking place in the Republican Party, which has begun to embrace openly gay candidates and among gay Republicans, who now feel more comfortable speaking out in a party that may have accepted them but didnt always show it. While differences still exist, the party is on the cusp of a generational shift in which the longtime foes of gay rights are replaced by younger party leaders who are more accepting. Its an exponential change from a few years ago, said former Republican Rep. Jim Kolbe. Its happening, and its going to continue to...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell isnt yet ready to endorse a presidential candidate, but on Wednesday evening, he endorsed same-sex marriage. Powell, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1993 when Dont Ask, Dont Tell was implemented, said in an interview on CNNs The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer that he has no problem with marriage equality and speculated that most Americans are prepared to adapt to changing times. As I've thought about gay marriage, I know a lot of friends who are individually gay but are in partnerships with loved ones. And they are stable...

    The nations changing views on same-sex marriage and new support from black leaders could put Maryland on track toward becoming the first state to cast a public vote in favor of gay marriage, according to a poll released Thursday. The survey from liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling showed 57 percent of Maryland voters would vote for gay marriage if it is put to referendum this fall and just 37 percent would vote against it a stark departure from past polls by the firm and other groups that have shown Marylanders to be almost evenly divided on the issue. More than...

    Target, the nations second-largest retailer, could be sending as much as $120,000 to a homosexual activist group through its online sale of pride shirts. The site says 100 percent of the sales of the rainbow-themed shirts will go to the Family Equality Council, a gay-activist organization. Among other issues, it lobbies for gay adoption, the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act and same-sex marriage. Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the American Family Association, denounced the retailer for crossing into social activism. Really what Target is saying is that were going to take sides in this social agenda...

    Public Policy Polling is out with a new survey this morning on the gay marriage referendum likely to be on the Maryland ballot this fall.  It's historic, because it shows that Maryland is likely to pass—by a wide margin—the referendum holding up the bill that lawmakers passed in late February. It's incredible because of the shift in previous polls, particularly among black voters in Maryland.  Check out this flip: In March, 56 percent of black respondents said they would vote against the law, with only 39 percent supporting it. Now, 55 percent of black voters plan to support it, with only 36...

    How anyone could take pride in spreading ghastly, lethal diseases through extremely disgusting forms of sexual depravity is beyond my comprehension, but the suits at Target seem to get it: For each item extolling perversion that is sold, Target promises to donate 100% of the purchase price to the Family Equality Council, a revolting outfit devoted to perverting and destroying the concept of family and subjecting children to sexual exploitation in homosexual marriages.

    LA MIRADA, Calif. -- On the same day President Obama became the first U.S. president to come out in support of same-sex marriage, a group of students announced the presence of the "Biola Queer Underground" at this small evangelical university, touching off a highly-charged debate about Christianity and homosexuality. The group launched a website and posted flyers around the Biola University campus May 9 with the following message: "We want to bring to light the presence of the LGBTQ community at Biola. Despite what some may assume, there are Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, and Queers at Biola. We are Biola's...

    STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA, May 24, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) A California-based bishop is concerned that the lawsuits to overturn the HHS mandate filed by the leading dioceses and institutions of his Church may be used to underscore political criticism of the Obama administration. Bishop Stephen Blaire of Stockton told America magazine that, while the bishops he knows in California are strong supporters of these religious liberty lawsuits, I think there are different groups that are trying to co-opt this and make it into political issue. Forces very far to the Right may be tempted to make the legal challenge a part of...

    The news Monday that 43 different Catholic entities across the country are suing the Obama administration, in response to the Health and Human Services' (HHS) rule mandating employer health care coverage of contraception, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization, comes as a blow to the president's strength among Catholics, a demographic that helped carry him to victory in 2008. This news comes on the heels of the the latest CBS News/New York Times poll which finds Mitt Romney now leading President Obama among women, yet another demographic that he previously commanded. If Mr. Obama was hoping to once again rely on Catholics...

    At sometime in the future a political scientist maybe one not yet even born- will point to Barack Obamas declaration of war against the Catholic Church as the worst move of many bad moves he has made in his inordinately poor campaign for reelection. Perhaps no other stupid Team Obama move better highlights the gulf between actual Americans and the phony Obama. It reminds us that Obama may (or may not) have been born in America and has spent his parasitical life here, but he is not OF America. He doesnt understand America and the over rated schmucks that...

    President Obama is apparently tired of pretending he opposes gay marriage. Good. Good, because lying to the American people is always wrong, and because now the American people will have a clear choice: a president who supports gay marriage, or a president who sides with the majority of the American people, including 61 percent of North Carolinians. I'm tired of pretending, too. Conservative elites, including those at Fox News, have shamefully kowtowed to the politically correct opinion on gay marriage. Some do so reluctantly because they have been cowed into believing defeat is inevitable. Some do so because they think...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - At a fundraiser for his re-election campaign in Denver tonight, President Obama set out to upend conventional Republican wisdom that his administration has been defined by excessive government spending. "I'm running to pay down our debt in a way that's balanced and responsible. After inheriting a $1 trillion deficit, I signed $2 trillion of spending cuts into law," he told a crowd of donors at the Hyatt Regency. "My opponent won't admit it, but it's starting to appear in places, like real liberal outlets, like the Wall Street Journal: Since I've been president, federal spending has...

    This column originally appeared in THE DAILY BEAST. In looking ahead toward the November election, Republican strategists should take proactive steps to avoid a damaging, dangerous conclusion to the presidential race and to prevent the very real chance that Mitt Romney will win the Electoral College even while losing the popular vote badly to Barack Obama. The problem stems from the lopsided margins President Obama will surely pile up in a few uncontested states with big populations, including California, New York, Illinois and Massachusetts. Mr. Romney, meanwhile, will prevail by comparable margins in only relatively small states: Utah, Idaho, the...

    May 22, 2012 (HLIAmerica.org) - The May 11, 2012 editorial of the Toronto Star offers high praise for President Obamas endorsement of same-sex marriage. The editor credits the U.S. president with showing rare courage, while at the same time advancing the cause for civil rights. In approving the legalization of marriage between a man and a man, and a woman and a woman, according to the editorial, Obama is affirming the full humanity of gays and lesbians. He is weighing in on the side of compassion, inclusion and equal rights for all. How could millennia of diverse cultures, until recently,...

Also joining in the lawsuit as Plaintiffs are the Weingartz Supply Company, a Michigan retailer since 1945, and its President who is a member of Legatus.

    You'd think the largest legal action in American history in defense of religious liberty would be a major news story. But ABC, CBS and NBC don't judge news events by their inherent importance as relates to the future of our freedoms. They deliver the news according to a simple formula: Does it or doesn't it advance the re-election of Barack Obama? If it doesn't, it isn't news. On May 21, 43 Catholic dioceses and organizations sued the Obama administration over its ridiculously narrow idea of how a "religious institution" can be defined under the Obamacare law. Never has the Catholic...
