Little Sisters of the Poor … Women Speak for Themselves
The Little Sisters of the Poor Just Beat the Obama Administration at the Supreme Court

While the consensus view seems to be that the Supreme Court “punted” today by sending the Little Sisters of the Poor case back to the lower courts, I must respectfully dissent. Although the Court didn’t rule on the merits of the case, the Little Sisters won a significant victory — one that is likely (though not yet certain) to persist through the next administration. First, the Supreme Court vacated the lower court ruling holding that the Little Sisters had to facilitate access to contraceptives and denied that the mandate substantially burdened their religion. Speaking as a person who’s argued a few cases in courts of appeal — when the court vacates the ruling you’re challenging, that’s a win. Second, the Supreme Court provided a roadmap for an excellent resolution to the case — by outlining the accommodation it suggested, the Little Sisters endorsed, and the government reluctantly agreed to:

What Difference it makes to protect the GRID?
Frank Gaffney recently spoke with Representative Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania on Secure Freedom Radio. Barletta is a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

The focus of their conversation was the prospect of an attack on America’s power grid. The threat is very real and could come not only from a hostile enemy, but even from a strong solar flare. Such an event would be devastating because it could cause a significant part of the country to be without power for weeks.
Ben Rhodes and the Iranian Deal and NOT testifying before Congress:
The White House told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Monday that Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes won't be testifying on Tuesday about his controversial comments on the Iran deal.

In a letter to Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, Neil Eggleston, counsel to President Obama, said it would raise "constitutional concerns" if Rhodes were to testify. He also said Congress has been consulted enough.
A Biblical Portal Between Christianity and Islam
Part 1:
The time has come for Christians and Muslims to make peace between our communities. Christians and Muslims already make up more than half of the global population, and these numbers are expected to grow in the coming decades; according to the Pew Research Center, by 2050, two thirds of humanity, some 5.7 billion people, will be either Christian or Muslim.

Our planet simply cannot afford another century of misunderstanding and violence between these two communities. The challenges we face as a global human family are profound: ongoing warfare and nuclear proliferation, global poverty and economic inequality, climate change and ecological degradation.
