  • Rand Paul: “Not Changing Any Laws on Abortion,” Life at Conception a “Personal” Belief

    Rand Paul is a pro-life Senator from Kentucky who appears poised to become one of the candidates for the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Although he has a strong pro-life voting record, Paul is making comments about abortion that are concerning pro-lifers. randpaul3As LifeNews reported earlier this year, Paul said in an interview that Republicans should agree to disagree on social issues. Now, in a new interview, Paul says he doesn’t anticipate changing the laws on abortion and added that his belief that life begins at conception is a personal and religious one, not a scientific viewpoint.

    Guy analyzed this campaign spot earlier today, but I wanted to add some additional commentary as a follow-up. As my other colleague Cortney recently noted, Oregon Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Monica Wehby is not pro-life. She is of the, shall we say, Joe Biden mold in that she is “personally” pro-life but supports abortion rights in practice. The GOP establishment, however, as Cortney lamented, has endorsed her candidacy over the pro-life candidate in the belief that she is -- and will prove to be -- more electable. We’ll see. (Personally, I don’t summarily object when the party endorses...

    The fee would pay for half of the annual operating costs of Connect for Health Colorado, the state Obamacare exchange, according to Health News Colorado. The exchange’s latest financial plan comes soon after its oversight board rejected a proposal to hike fees on those who use the website from 1.4 percent to 1.7 percent. Connect for Health Colorado staff has said the increase was needed to keep it solvent. Board members said staff should look at cutting expenses before raising fees, and many had the same reaction to the proposed $13 million fee, which is being called a “general market health insurer assessment.” Others call it...

    Last August, as conservatives barnstormed the country seeking to build support for a cockamamie plan to shut down the U.S. federal government unless Congress voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican senator, said something surprisingly prescient about the president’s signature health-care law. “President Obama wants to get as many Americans addicted to the subsidies because he knows that in modern times, no major entitlement has ever been implemented and then unwound,” he said. The worry, according to Cruz, was that once the ACA went into effect, we’d all be “addicted to the sugar.” Then, it...

David Corn and Mother Jones are out with another gotcha piece on Paul this morning citing his (mild) criticism of Reagan in the past for not cutting spending more as president, but this clip is more interesting, I think. Knocking the Gipper for not doing enough to shrink government is Libertarianism 101; even mainstream conservatives who venerate him will grudgingly concede that they wish he’d done better before quickly adding that he did what he could with a liberal Congress.

Turns out, there may be a financial incentive for the former Kansas governor to take her time getting out of Washington. Next week, Sebelius becomes eligible to receive a government pension and continue certain taxpayer-funded health-care benefits when she hits her five-year employment mark with the federal government, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) policy indicates. Under OPM rules, Sebelius, who was sworn into office on April...

    . Obamacare has won. And that's why Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius can resign. Calls for Sebelius's resignation were almost constant after Obamacare's catastrophic launch. The problem wasn't just that Sebelius had presided over the construction of a fantastically expensive web site that flatly didn't work. It was that she didn't know healthcare.gov was going to instantly, systemically fail. And so the White House didn't know that healthcare.gov was going to instantly, systemically fail. The demands that Sebelius to step down — or be fired — were as deafening inside the building as outside of it. But...

    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will announce Friday she is stepping down, ABC News has confirmed. The president will nominate Sylvia Burwell, director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her. Sebelius approached President Obama about a month ago and asked to step down after the health care sign-up numbers were released, two senior administration officials and a confidante of Sebelius' told ABC News. The White House always worried about finding someone to win confirmation at HHS, but Burwell was overwhelmingly confirmed as budget director with a vote of 96-0 about a year ago. Earlier today...

Her agency had three years to put the website together and make sure it was up to snuff. That website has less traffic than Amazon and any number of online retailers. Yet it failed spectacularly. In fact, the website still fails on a regular basis. It remains difficult to sign up for Obamacare and it’s nearly impossible to cancel a policy on the website. The website alone ought to be enough for Sebelius to...

Ann McElhinney, one of three principals behind the proposed $2.1 million made-for-TV “true crime” film about Gosnell, said people are rightly horrified by Gosnell's practice of “snipping” infants born alive with scissors.

Basically, they don’t want to subsidize insurance premiums for Americans on the government exchange. This debate, seen as another attempt to gut the law, comes weeks after the Congressional Budget Office released a report that says the ACA, or Obamacare, would nix 2.3 million jobs. According to some, this would shake the foundation of the American economy. Most recently, a divided federal appeals judge said it was “an unmitigated disaster.” Really?...

The human toll of the coverage gap can be found all too easily in Hidalgo County, Texas, where less than half of non-senior adults had health insurance in 2012.

Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, though, said premiums have been received for only 107,581 of those policies, which cover 149,465 people. “Many Georgians completed the application process by the deadline, but have yet to pay for the coverage,” Hudgens said in a statement Wednesday. Half? Half? Sure, the nonpayment rates will...

    American culture is in trouble. It is impossible to watch television for long without concluding that we are all living in one big reality TV show that is defining deviancy one embarrassing episode at a time. Unfortunately, the church isn't doing much to fight against the cultural current. By trying to be "relevant" the church is simply getting pulled into the undertow. Consequently, most churches are slowly drowning in the shallow water of our declining culture. So how do we turn the tide and begin to have a meaningful church experience that also influences the culture in a meaningful way?...

    In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. […] Kerry supports legalized abortion. In January 2004, when he was running for president then-Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis said that Kerry should not go to communion. …

    On the Sunday, April 20, Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, as host Harris-Perry chastised Democrats for not bragging about ObamaCare for the year's midterm elections, she at one point mocked Americans angry about having their health insurance plans cancelled, which she referred to as "crappy plans," as she lamented that Democrats are not boasting about ObamaCare or declaring, "Yeah, you can't keep your crappy plans. Just deal with that!" Her mockery of the ObamaCare-induced insurance cancellations came as she compared Republicans to people who flip houses and brag about doing only a little work, as she characterized Democrats, by contrast,...

    Yale’s Agony Over Social Justice The unsettling pro-life witness by Matthew Gerken 4 . 17 . 14 Last night Yale’s campus pro-life group—after a year in which they participated in meetings and even helped raise money for the organization—became the first group in living memory to be denied membership in the Social Justice Network of Dwight Hall. Billing itself as an “independent” and “non-sectarian” center for public service and social justice, Dwight Hall at Yale is a group that seeks “to foster civic-minded student leaders and to promote service and activism in New Haven and around the world.” Though legally...

    Headlines reported it: South Korean ferry with 300 school children aboard--sunk. Missing children likely drowned inside the ferry. The captain has been arrested, and he is attempting to justify the rationale he used in telling the people not to abandon ship. Every parent around the world that ever sent their baby off on a school field trip identified with the emotional distraught the parents of those children are feeling. The worst part was hearing some of the final text messages read on the evening news. "This will be the last time I can tell you mom, 'I love you!'" I...

    How can the Democrats possibly include a clause in health-care reform that requires a super-majority to repeal, if they don't pass it with a super-majority? I think they're blowing smoke up our exit-orifices, and know that the next Congress can undo anything they do.

    A federal court has blocked enforcement of the Obama administration's abortion pill mandate against Dr. James Dobson and his "Family Talk" radio show in a case that challenges the legality of the requirement that religious employers provide contraceptives to employees. "In America, we don't try to separate what people do from what they believe," Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot said Friday regarding the injunction issued by a federal judge in Colorado in Dobson v. Sebelius. The injunction "shall remain in effect until modified or rescinded by order of the court," the order stated Thursday. "Faith-based organizations should be...

    Just because California Democrats hold every statewide office and a supermajority in the Legislature doesn't mean they're not worried about 2014. Some Democratic insiders fret that, essentially, life may be too good for the party right now. Their lurking fear: Without a high-profile presidential election or a big-name Republican challenger lined up yet against Gov. Jerry Brown, Democratic voters won't be interested enough to cast ballots in November. If that happens, the GOP could pick off a few seats in the Legislature, wrecking the Democrats' two-thirds majority and damaging Brown's ability to move his agenda. Adding to Democratic insiders' anxiety...
