Rush Limbaugh- Constitution in the crosshairs



Prelude:

Even some Democrats are against this birth control mandate.
 Apparently none of our lawmakers bothered to read the Obamacare Bill so how many other surprises are in there? Remember when Pelosi said, "You have to vote for it to find out what's in it."
Now we're finding out.


Hey Stupak... if you're reading this you just got screwed!



THE REAL TARGET OF OBAMA BIRTH CONTROL MANDATE IS THE CONSTITUTION


"It's not the government's business to make any church or any religion 'modernize' …there is no permissible way the government can do this, according to our Constitution," Rush Limbaugh said during his Tuesday radio broadcast.

Limbaugh, who believes the real target of the Obama administrations contraceptives mandate is in fact, the U.S. Constitution, "pure and simple."

The Catholic Church, according to Limbaugh, "is just the latest springboard."

"But the Constitution doesn't matter here, which is really what this is all about," he added.



"The Constitution doesn't matter to the [Obama] regime. The regime is simply saying,'To hell with the Constitution. We're gonna implement this regardless what the Constitution says!' But if you don't like the Catholic Church view on abortion, if you don't like their view on contraception, don't be Catholic. If you don't like what the Methodist Church says or if you don't like what you hear in synagogue, don't go. It's as simple as that."

(Easier just to read the transcript as he speaking)

Transcript follows:


Now, the Heritage Foundation with their blog, Morning Bell, the title today: "Obamacare Awakens a Sleeping Giant." This is how it begins. "It is a rare moment indeed when faith denominations of all stripes unite together in common cause, and it is rarer still when that cause is a political one, with a sole piece of legislation as its principal target.But when that law eviscerates the very foundation of religious liberty in America as protected under the First Amendment, it should not be surprising that Catholics and Jews, evangelical Christians, and mainline Lutherans alike find common cause in defense of their liberties. Such is the case with the firestorm of opposition to Obamacare and the Obama Administration's attack on religious liberty." Here it is again for those of you just now getting up to speed on this.

"Under a new Obamacare mandate issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the White House is mandating that virtually all religious employers, with the exception of churches, provide health care coverage for contraception — including abortion-inducing drugs — thereby trampling upon their constitutionally guaranteed free exercise of religion. And it is this mandate that has caused a vehement response in churches and synagogues across the country." We played the sound bite of Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League. He "warned that the nation's 70 million Catholics are ready to go to war with the [regime]'s dictates, saying, "'maybe even in the streets.'" But Heritage points out here:

"The Catholic Church is not alone in its opposition to Obamacare's onslaught against religious freedom. David Addington, The Heritage Foundation's vice president of Domestic and Economic Policy, details the growing ranks of the faithful who say the [regime] has crossed a very dangerous line. The National Association of Evangelicals commented that 'The HHS rules trample on our most cherished freedoms and set a dangerous precedent' and the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America stated, 'In declining to expand the religious exemption within the healthcare reform law, the [regime]has disappointingly failed to respect the needs of religious organizations such as hospitals, social welfare organizations and more.'"

Who cares what they're saying here, but the point is: They're united in this. That's why some people are hoping, thinking maybe a turning point has occurred here. Heritage does allude to the fact that the regime "is beginning to feel the pressure. On Sunday, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius authored an op-ed in USA Today defending the [regime]'s actions, claiming that a very narrow exemption to the mandate is evidence that the White House is 'working to strike the right balance between respecting religious beliefs and increasing women's access to critical preventive health services.'" Well, you see right there that the regime, Sebelius-Obama, think that the Church and religious institutions are resulting in women being denied access to "critical preventive health services."

Which is an out-and-out lie. Being a Catholic is a choice. You don't have to be one. And if you are one, you can punt. The Catholic Church doesn't have anywhere near the power Obama does. The Catholic Church doesn't have near the power Obama wants! The Catholic Church can't deny anybody anything. It's something that the flock have to support and agree with. It's part of the rules. This is why I've always marveled at the left's attempt to challenge religious orthodoxy. "The Church must conform! The Church must modernize. The Church must realize it's the 21st Century!" No! The Church is what it is. If people don't want to follow along, that's their business.



It's not the government's business to make any church or any religion "modernize," quote, unquote, or get with the program or what have you. There is no permissible way the government can do this, according to our Constitution. But the Constitution doesn't matter here, which is really what this is all about. The Constitution doesn't matter to the regime. The regime is simply saying, "To hell with the Constitution. We're gonna implement this regardless what the Constitution says!" But if you don't like the Catholic Church view on abortion, if you don't like their view on contraception, don't be Catholic. If you don't like what the Methodist Church says or if you don't like what you hear in synagogue, don't go. It's as simple as that.

But Obama wants you to believe that the Church has all these prisoners. Everybody who shows up for Mass is a prisoner. They're all wishing the Church would modernize and change. But the Church, being obstinate, won't. What they don't tell is people can get up and leave Mass. They can walk out of there if they don't like it. They don't have to sign up for the articles of faith. It's theology. This is no place for the government to be. They are taking what are moral and religious beliefs and turning them into totally nothing but political elements multiply. And when it becomes political, then the regime says they can force people to agree with or not agree with or what have you.

Limbaugh finished the segment by stating unequivocally that this "is an abomination."

"The Catholic Church is just the latest springboard. The target here is the Constitution of the United States, pure and simple."

White House Says It Won't Back Down on Contraception Rule



Maybe he just bought himself a ticket out of the White House.

Another Hypocritical Slap-shot





In 2010 the Supreme Court overturned the ruling that barred corporations from spending freely to support or oppose candidates citing it's an unconstitutional restriction of free speech. Well, I'm sure you remember, this two-faced jerk-off ripping the Supreme Court a new one during the 2010 SOTU. The Supreme Court Justices sat while the Messiah chastised them as the Democrats vault to their feet cheering wildly.   He called the court's ruling in the Citizens United case a blow to democracy, adding, "I can't think of anything more devastating to the public interest." 


This is a clip of that event.


video

Recently Obama did a 180 and now supports PAC money.
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina acknowledged the contradiction in a note posted on the campaign's blog late Monday and said Obama would still like to change the law to bar these operations.
"But this cycle, our campaign has to face the reality of the law as it currently stands," Messina wrote. "With so much at stake, we can't allow for two sets of rules in this election whereby the Republican nominee is the beneficiary of unlimited spending and Democrats unilaterally disarm."



In other words


Ask not what my conscience should do for me, ask what is right for my re-election.



 Getting a little rattled are we?


Seems the new adage is... the "public interest" be damned... I want to get re-elected. There's just no two ways about it.


 Hope the Supremes have a long memory when it comes to ruling on Obamacare.

Billy Barack Graham




Just the other day he said this:

"If I'm willing to give something up, as someone who's been extraordinarily blessed, give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I think that actually makes economic sense. But as a Christian it also coincides with Jesus' teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required," said President Obama, referencing the Gospel of Luke.


video

Between the two it's difficult to figure out who's more lame.

Ask yourself this. Would you, me, or your next door neighbor make the Freudian slip...My Muslim faith?

About as likely as this scenario:
Out for dinner with some friends the other night and I meant to say to my friend's wife, 'Could you pass the salt please,' but instead I said, do you have a gynecologist... cause I just got my degree!

The reporter in this ABC interview (appears to be Stephanopoulos) out of deference comes to his rescue reminding him he's a Christian. (Oh.. and BTW...Stephanopoulos  by his own admission attended Columbia University at the same time, in the same classes, as  Barack Obama and never heard of him) 





If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.
Margaret Thatcher



Outfit for CBS tomorrow?



I am whatever you want me to be.

I WANT TO GET RE-ELECTED


On a tip from Ed Kilbame

 
 
Regardless of what you think about the slate of Republicans asking for the job.....would any of them be capable of matching this record ???
I think not.  
 
 

 
 
I WANT TO GET RE-ELECTED:


An old West Virginia Hillbilly saying:
“You cannot get the water to clear up
until you get the pigs out of the creek.”




*If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt,
which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate,
in one year,
would you have approved?*


*If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years,
would you have approved? *


*If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law
that he admitted he never even read,
would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head? *


*If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico
and sued a state in the United States to force that state
to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on? *


*If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot? *


*If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident,
would you have agreed? *




*If any other of our presidents had reduced your retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved? *



*If any other of our presidents had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia would you have approved? *


*If any other of our presidents had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved? *


*If any other of our presidents had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, wouldn't you have had second thoughts about his capabilities? *


*If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town,
would you not have thought he was a
self-important, conceited, egotistical jerk. *


*If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate
as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again,
wouldn't you have winced in embarrassment? *


*If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?*


*If any other of our presidents' administrations had okayed
Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic,
would you have wondered whether they actually forgot what happened on 9-11? *


*If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid
to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed
or made homeless than in New Orleans,
would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence? *


*If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America ,
would you have ever approved. *

 
*If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved? *


*So, tell me again,
what is it about Obama
that makes him so brilliant and impressive? *

*Can't think of anything?
Don't worry.
He's done all this in 34 months – so you don’t have that much time to come up with an answer.*
 
*Every statement and action in this email is factual
and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama.
Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable. *


AND NOW--
HE ACTUALLY WANTS US TO RE-ELECT HIM.
WAKE UP AMERICA, 2012 IS UPON US.

Robin Hood



Not one dime from increased taxes on the rich will go towards reducing the debt. He knows it...and was never his intent.

  What he's attempting to do in this video is blend Jesus into his talking points to convince and confuse those Americans who are mentally ambivalent by endorsing the principle...
redistribution of wealth is a good thing.

video 
Sounds an awful lot like this:

 From each according to his ability, to each according to his need is a slogan popularized by Karl Marx.


This week he's a Christian!? How many Christians do you know who at most attended church 4 times in over 3 years? 


BTW... this "Prophet of the poor" gave a whopping 1% of his total income to charity.
