    The mother of an 18-year-old college student who died by suicide last December, has filed a lawsuit against the Rev. Don LaCuesta, a priest at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in Temperance, Michigan, for suggesting at her son’s funeral that he might not go to Heaven. Linda Hullibarger and her husband, Jeff, whose son, Maison Hullibarger, died by suicide on Dec. 4, 2018, had previously called for LaCuesta to be fired for traumatizing grieving friends and family at his funeral on Dec. 8, 2018. In a statement shortly after the backlash over LaCuesta’s comments, the Archdiocese of Detroit...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/13/2019 | Monica Showalter
    Stephen Miller is one of President Trump's most effective and loyal White House advisors. He's competent, and he gets a lot done on the immigration front, an area that's unusually difficult to navigate politically, with Democrats dead set against any borders or rule of law, a leftist establishment that continuously uses the courts to render rule of law at the border meaningless, and a public susceptible to the media's migrant sob stories as their argument for ending any border laws. Even the clergy piles on in favor of the lawbreaking. Now that Trump is poised for what appears to be...

    San Francisco, CA Closing arguments are set to begin today in the Planned Parenthood v. CMP et. al. case in the Federal Courtroom of Judge William Orrick in San Francisco. Defendants in the case include Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, Sandra Merritt, Albin Rhomberg, David Daleiden, and Adrian Lopez, along with two business entities, Center for Medical Progress and Biomax. The case stems from the release of several undercover videos in the summer of 2015 that showed Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of aborted baby parts for valuable consideration and methods used to ensure that tissues and organs...

    WASHINGTON A bare majority of the U.S. Supreme Court appeared likely Tuesday to let the Trump administration follow through on its plan to shut down DACA, the federal program that has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as dreamers, to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S. With hundreds of DACA supporters rallying outside so many that police shut down the street in front of the Supreme Court the justices heard nearly an hour and a half of oral arguments. Based on their questions, it appeared that the court's five conservatives were inclined to rule that the...

    White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney plans to file his own lawsuit over testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, withdrawing his bid to join a separate case filed last month by a former Trump adviser, his attorneys said Monday. The plans were revealed in a court filing in which Mulvaney abandoned his earlier request to become part of a suit by Charles Kupperman, President Donald Trumps former deputy national security adviser. Lawyers for Mulvaney had asked Friday evening to join that lawsuit, saying his case presented similar legal issues to that of Kupperman. But they switched course following...

    O.J. Simpson is suing a Las Vegas hotel-casino that banned him in November 2017, alleging that unnamed employees defamed him by telling a celebrity news site he had been drunk, disruptive and unruly. Simpson, on parole in Nevada for a 2008 conviction for armed robbery and assault with a weapon, filed the lawsuit Thursday against Nevada Property 1 LLC, corporate owner of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The complaint acknowledges that Simpson, after several hours with two friends at a steakhouse and a lounge in November 2017, received a notice from a security guard as they left. It prohibited him...

    We haven’t seen E. Jean Carroll’s name in the headlines for a while, probably since she finished her recent book tour. But now she’s back, bringing a lawsuit against Donald Trump. But it’s not for sexual assault or anything related. It’s a defamation suit spurred by the President supposedly calling her a liar or at least suggesting she was being untruthful when she claimed that he had raped her in a dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman. She’s lawyered up and appears serious about moving this forward, so the tabloids should have a field day with it. (WaPo) A writer...

    The fate of a century-old Detroit mainstay hangs in the balance before the U.S. Supreme Court, but not likely for any reason you’d guess. In fact, once you know the broader implications of the case, you’ll realize why you should follow its outcome closely.After all, the outcome in G.R. & R.G. Harris Funeral Homes v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission could have a huge impact on workplaces, schools, athletic fields, and even women’s shelters, not just in Michigan, but all over the nation.Harris, which I argued before the Supreme Court on Oct. 8, raises a crucial question: Can Americans rely on the...

    We the People have the right to keep and bear arms. It says it right here on this old Constitution. U.S.A. -( The coming implementation of Constitutional Carry in Oklahoma has served to emphasize the logical flaws in the arguments of those opposed. Constitutional Carry is the removal of restrictions on the carry of handguns in most public places. It restores the state of the law to a close approximation of the law as it existed when the Constitution was signed or the Bill of Rights ratified. At that time, no permits were required to carry handguns either concealed or...

    Trump said "this crooked" Schiff "fraudulently mischaracterized" his July 25 Ukraine phone call to congratulate the new president "to make it sound absolutely horrible." "I'm going to go after him," Trump said. "They say, 'sir, he has immunity, because he said it in Congress he has immunity.' I don't care about immunity. He can't have immunity. He made up a phone call." Trump added his "totally congenial" phone call was twisted by a "totally terrible fraudulent thing" as Schiff was "talking to the American public, lying and cheating" and now "he has to pay a big price."

    The oral arguments at the Supreme Court in the case of Harris Funeral Homes v.

If you’ve been following our ongoing coverage of the case here, you’re already aware that the dispute in Harris involves a funeral director named Aimee Stephens who was fired after announcing that he was transgender and planned to begin living and dressing as a woman on the job.

    On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The case arose when Harris Funeral Homes, a fifth generation family business, was sued by the EEOC because of its sex-specific dress code. The question before the Court is whether the word sex in Title VII and other civil rights laws includes transgender status.There is much at stake. A change in the law could force organizations to open womens shelters to biological men. It could throw open the doors of locker rooms, restrooms and showers to the opposite...
