Mississippi school district fined $7500 for opening assembly with prayer

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves

The assembly at Brandon High School in May 2014 began with a prayer led by local Methodist pastor Rev. Rob Gill. Although not mandatory, the assembly honored the district’s students who scored higher than a 22 on their ACT college tests. One student objected, and sued the school.

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves said it defied his prior order barring prayers school events. Reeves fined the school $7,500 and awarded the student $2,500. Reeves also ordered the district to pay the student’s legal fees, an amount that will be determined at a later date, and threatened a $10,000 fine for any future infractions of the order.

Attorneys for the school district have argued that Gill’s prayer did not violate the 2013 orders or the student’s First Amendment rights because attendance at the assembly was optional. Reeves, however, believes the district has been trying to indoctrinate students with Christianity.

In a statement issued by an attorney, Rankin County Superintendent Lynn Weathersby said that despite the court’s ruling, students and teachers will continue to pray.

Third Video Of Planned Parenthood’s Organ Trafficking Scheme Released

A new video released by the Center for Medical Progress digs deeper into what appears to be a wide-ranging fetal organ trafficking scheme overseen by Planned Parenthood. At the beginning of the video, an ex-employee of StemExpress confessed that the company helps Planned Parenthood harvest and sell body parts ripped from aborted babies.

“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood,” Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress technician, told the Center for Medical Progress. “Not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses.”

“We were asked to procure certain tissues like brain, livers, thymus, pancreas, heart, lungs, and pretty much anything on the fetus. It’s basically a huge trafficking of fetal tissues,” she explained. “StemExpress is a company that hires procurement techs to draw blood and dissect dead fetuses and sell the parts to researchers.”

O’Donnell discussed in great detail the process by which StemExpress and Planned Parenthood work to harvest the most valuable organs and parts from aborted babies. On her first day, O’Donnell witnessed her colleagues placing cut up baby parts in “pie dishes” and passing them around for review.

The Clinton Emails: Will DOJ Conduct a Real Investigation?

hillary email server 500x200
The debate over the revelation of the referral to the Justice Department of Hillary Clinton’s email activities as Secretary of State missed several important points, particularly the preferential treatment she has been given so far.

Any other federal employee found to have discussed high-level, sensitive government business in her personal emails, including possibly classified materials, would not have been treated with such kid gloves.

After this referral hit the news on Friday, a dispute erupted over whether the request by the inspector general of the intelligence community to open an investigation of Clinton’s handling of information classified as “secret” was a “criminal” referral or not. At first, a Department of Justice official said the “investigation was criminal in nature,” according to the Wall Street Journal, but the department “reversed course hours later without explanation.”

As the former head of the National Security Division of the Justice Department, Lisa O. Monaco, who is now an assistant to the president for counterterrorism, explained in testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in 2012 (before the public knew about Clinton’s personal server) that the intelligence community must report the unauthorized disclosure of classified materials to DOJ.

David Limbaugh: Phony GOP Conservatism Has Worn Out Its Welcome

Establishment Republicans 500x200
The long-simmering disconnect between the Republican Party’s conservative base and its leaders in government has degenerated into a full-blown schism.

While President Obama accelerates his increasingly radical agenda, the GOP, despite its congressional majority, can barely muster an objection, let alone block his momentum.

Other than to offer a toothless public rebuke of Obama’s destructive schemes, what was the point of the 2014 GOP congressional landslide? It’s no longer just a small percentage of conservatives questioning the GOP. Our people are furious — and rightly so.

Let the elites look down their superior noses at us commoners. Be advised, though, that Trump is not the only one railing against the pervasive insanity, including the role that the GOP leadership is playing in it. Sen. Ted Cruz has set his sights on the “Washington cartel” — the quasi bipartisan ruling class that is presiding over the disgraceful dismantling of the United States as we know and love it. Candidate Carly Fiorina is also speaking eloquently about bringing “outside-the-box” changes to Washington to make a real difference, as opposed to merely slowing down the devastating Obama juggernaut.

The Taxpayer-Funded Louisiana Co-Op Created Under Obamacare Has Collapsed

Just two years after Obamacare’s implementation, a Louisiana nonprofit insurer that received nearly $66 million in taxpayer-funded loans is closing its doors.

On Friday, the Louisiana Department of Insurance announced that the state’s consumer operated and oriented plan, or co-op, would be discontinuing its operations at the end of 2015. Louisiana’s is the second co-op created under to Obamacare to close.

According to the Department of Insurance, the Louisiana Health Cooperative will not be offering plans to consumers next year, but it will continue its coverage of the 17,000 Louisiana consumers currently receiving health insurance through the co-op.

Many of those consumers purchased their plans with the Louisiana Health Cooperative on the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov.

“It is a difficult time for health insurers of every size,” Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon said in a statement. “The onerous burdens of Obamacare have shocked health insurance markets and caused instability in pricing and predictability, and as a result, we’ve seen premiums spike upward.
