In September 2012, Hobby Lobby sued the United States over new regulations requiring health insurance provided by employers to cover emergency contraceptives, stating that, “The Green family’s religious beliefs forbid them from participating in, providing access to, paying for, training others to engage in, or otherwise supporting abortion-causing drugs and devices.”
However, their appeal was rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court, and as of 31 December 2012, the company faces fines of up to $1.3 million per day for violating provisions of the Affordable Health Care Act (AKA OBAMACARE !!)
Hobby Lobby was denied a stay of enforcement of the HHS mandate, by Sonya Sotomayor - who is now known to not be eligible to be SCOTUS because the man who nominated her - Barack Obama - has no legally-established birth facts (according to certified letters of verification from HI state registrar Alvin Onaka) and thus could never have “qualified” by Jan 20, 2009 as required by the 20th Amendment. Since he failed to qualify only the Vice President elect (Joe Biden) is allowed by the 20th Amendment to “act as President”, including nominating Supreme Court justices.
If Hobby Lobby is serious about wanting to fight this - and I believe they are - then they can do themselves and the country a favor by responding to Sotomayor’s denial of the stay by filing a claim that they have become aware of new information which legally indicates that Sotomayor is not eligible to be on SCOTUS and thus CANNOT deny them a stay.
They are already recognized as having “standing”, the issue is extremely relevant to how the government is still aggrieving them, and the issue would have to be taken up very quickly - more quickly than any other plaintiff could get a case before SCOTUS.
They never asked for this position, but Hobby Lobby - like Esther in the Old Testament - may well have been placed in this position for such a time as this, in order to save their people from an enemy intent on doing all Christians severe harm.
We need to support Hobby Lobby, but one of the best ways to do that, IMHO, is to encourage them to take the legal tactic that they may have been specifically placed by God to use.
I faxed their attorney’s office, but I’m not an attorney so they have no idea if I know what I’m talking about. We need to get their attention, though, so that their attorney will look into this.
I feel badly because I was just asking everybody’s help to contact Congress and it wasn’t pulled together quickly enough. Now I have to ask the same thing, only with Hobby Lobby.
Please - especially if you are an attorney and understand and agree with the legal reasoning presented by Larry Klayman in his letter to Bob Bauer (seen at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/complete-klayman-letter-to-bauer.pdf ) - please contact the attorney for Hobby Lobby (or the owners) and let them know that they may have been placed in their particular position for such a time as this. They have exactly the standing, just cause, legal documents to provide the proof of the claim, already-existent urgent SCOTUS situation , and backing of the religious-liberty community to be able to confront the danger on behalf of all of us. There’s nothing for them to lose and everything to be gained.
If you have a ping list, please ping the list so we can get the biggest response - and hopefully from some attorneys, since they have more clout than non-attorneys.
Thanks! I sincerely apologize for being a pest lately; seems like this may be the one realistic chance left.
What a damned coward.
