DOJ Agrees that High Court Should Reconsider Liberty’s ObamaCare Ruling

Tomorrow is the most important election of our lifetime with state and federal races.

"Those opposing us will get what they deserve" - Obama Advisor (source Mat Staver)

We now know precisely what is in store for biblical and values voters if Barack Obama wins another four years in the White House. Just hours from determining the direction of our nation, I still haven’t heard from all of our partners and I am concerned that you may have missed Valerie Jarrett’s chilling warning.

Jarrett is considered to be the Obama administration’s most powerful advisor and I don’t doubt she’ll do everything possible to enact her threat if given the chance. Please see my message below and prayerfully consider how, in this late hour, you can help Liberty Action PAC defeat this statist regime. Please read my urgent message from the weekend below – Mat.

We must not let Obama win another four years. The consequence would be disastrous. Thank you in advance for your outstanding support!

he U.S. Department of Justice has informed the Supreme Court that it does not oppose Liberty University’s Petition for Rehearing the Court’s denial of review of the case of Liberty University v. Geithner. Liberty Counsel, representing Liberty University and two private individuals, asked the Court to grant its Petition for review, vacate the ruling of the Court of Appeals, and remand (send back) the case for the Court of Appeals to consider the outstanding and unresolved claims, including the constitutionality of the employer mandate and the Free Exercise claim.

The Court of Appeals in the Liberty University case ruled 2-1 that the Anti-Injunction Act (AIA) barred it from reaching the merits of the case, ruling that if the individual insurance mandate in ObamaCare is a tax, then the tax had to be paid before a court could entertain the suit. Liberty Counsel filed a petition with the Supreme Court, asking it to reverse the Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court heard three days of oral argument on challenges to Obamacare, and the first day was dedicated to the issue raised in the Liberty University case. In June 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that the AIA does not apply to the individual insurance mandate, but did not reach the merits of Liberty University’s case. The Supreme Court then denied Liberty University’s request for review. Liberty Counsel then asked the Court to grant its petition, vacate the ruling of the Court of Appeals, and send it back to address the unresolved merits of the case, namely, the employer mandate and the Free Exercise claim based on ObamaCare’s forced funding of abortion. The DOJ filed its response late yesterday and agreed with Liberty Counsel’s request.

If the Court grants the request, now unopposed, then Liberty University v. Geithner will be the first case in the nation in which a federal court of appeals would consider challenges to the employer mandate and the Free Exercise of Religion claim. The case could then go back to the Supreme Court in 2013.

“I am very pleased that the Department of Justice agrees that the case should go back to the Court of Appeals to address the unresolved issues in ObamaCare. ObamaCare is the biggest funding of abortion in American history,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law. “ObamaCare will for the first time require employers and individuals to directly fund abortion. This abortion mandate collides with religious freedom and the rights of conscience,” Staver said.

Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.

God will see that the right person wins and it will not be Palumbo

Folks, you know that you will not be elected to another term when the gay community turns against you as they have Lexington's Representative Ruth Ann Palumbo for being a slum lord.

When you sponsor legislation for the so-called "gay rights" movement and they in-turn strive to disgrace your reputation it shows that gays have no morals, the very reason sodomites alone hold the shame that forced God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.

Joe Sonka, owner of Barefoot and Progressive

It’s no surprise when Republicans resort to blaming the President and Government regulations in order to divert attention from actual problems.

The Bush years crashed the economy? Blame Obama’s regulations.

The water is too clean? Blame Obama’s regulations.

Got a really annoying hang nail? Blame Obama’s regulations.

What happens less — because generally they’re smarter people… generally — is Democrats using Obama and his “regulations” to shirk their own responsibility.

But that, sadly, is exactly what Ruth Ann Palumbo, a state House representative from Lexington (since 1991) has done. She’s got a house, it’s rundown, the city’s code enforcement is telling her to fix it… and she ain’t doing nuthin.

This is pathetic:

Neighbors say the home at 10 Deepwood Drive, with its trash-strewn yard, is a worsening eyesore and a public health risk because raccoons and rats come and go through various holes in its exterior.

“I’ve been here eight years, and that house has never been lived in. It’s been abandoned and it’s bringing down property values all along the street,” said Barry Crume, who also lives on Deepwood Drive, a cul-de-sac of large, handsome brick and stone homes.

“I don’t know if she’s embarrassed that she can’t deal with this or if she thinks she’s above the law because she’s an elected official,” Crume said. “Whatever it is, she needs to fix it.”

Now, look. If it’s an issue of money, my heart goes out to Ruth Ann. If it’s just a matter of time, I understand… for instance, I’ve got a pile of dishes I need to do and they, apparently, aren’t doing themselves.

But what won’t be excused is this:

Speaking this week, Palumbo said she never intended for her home to fall into such disrepair. She said she delayed rehabilitation because of hazards inside the house — mold, asbestos and lead-based paint — that will require specialists to remove. Federal environmental rules for such work have been strengthened under President Barack Obama, she said.

“There are a lot of new regulations that we want to comply with,” said Palumbo, chairman of the House Economic Development Committee. “It wasn’t like you could just open the Yellow Pages and call someone to do all this kind of work.”

This is stupid. This is pandering. This is making an excuse of the lowest variety in order to avoid scrutiny and responsibility.

Let’s be clear: Ruth Ann Palumbo is blaming Barack Obama and government regulations for not fixing her house 8 years ago.

8 years ago, Ruth Ann’s house had asbestos, mold and lead-based paint, and 8 long year ago, Barack Obama and his regulation brownshirts stopped Ruth Ann from fixing up her house.


I’m sure there’s a real explanation, and whatever it is, by the looks of it, it’s a rough one. But don’t blame Barack Obama just because it’s easy. That’s ridiculous.

Jacob Payne - Page One Kentucky

No one in Lexington has the guts to bring this up because they fear retribution.

So I will.

Why on earth are you allowed to maintain your legislative seat when you don’t live in the district you represent?

The house you claim as your residence has been empty for years. There’s a giant dumpster that’s been in your front yard for at least a year (along with a portable pooper) but no building permit exists. No workmen ever show up. The Health Department has received complaints. Kevin Stinnett’s office has received complaints.

You used to stay on Old Paris Pike but that’s apparently not the case these days.

So why are you claiming to live where you clearly do not?

What’s the deal? What is your excuse?

I asked you a couple years ago and you still haven’t provided an answer.

Payne may still be recovering from the sealed lawsuit against him.

Does anyone wonder why Palumbo's son committed suicide?

The comments jump at you with sin

Dear Ruth Ann – I live on Deepwood Drive down the street from your house. I recently sent you a letter about your plan to either maintain or improve your property. You didn’t respond. I left you 3 messages at work and you didn’t respond. I have called your home phone number given out by your office and the voicemail is full. I stopped by Palumbo Lumber to talk with your sons about fixing your house and they didn’t have any answers. I am very frustrated because the condition of your home on Deepwood Drive is bringing down the property values. The appearance of your home is ruining the charm of our neighborhood. There are stray cats, racoons and opossum living in your attic. They crawl in your home through the big hole in your roof. Are you going to fix these problems? Please inform the 18 residents that live on Deepwood Drive what your plan is with your home. I have asked several times and cannot get you to answer any of my questions! if you cannot represent yourself in your own neighborhood, then how can you represent your constituents in your district?


Does anyone else think it’s ironic that Jaime Palumbo grew up on a street called Deepwood?

Palumbo's opponent, Richard Marrs will cleanup Lexington: Richard Marrs is married to his wife Melanie and they have four children ages 6-12. He enjoys spending time with his family and coaching his sons in various sports leagues.

None of his children have met the fire of hell by committing suicide, a sin my fellow Christians that cannot be forgiven.

This proves my earlier lost that the sodomites are loyal to no one.

1. Kentucky's alleged equality organizations failing
2. God punished New York because of gay marriage law
3. Gay Marriage Threatens Our Freedom
4. Unions That Divide: Churches Split Over Gay Marriage

Begging people to vote for State Representatives Palumbo, Westrom, and Burch? That would be Kentucky Equality Federation's Jordan Palmer. Palmer says it is his particular "Kentucky Spirit" blog. Someone put this man out of his misery. He may have rebounded from his surgery but God continues to punish sodomites. Shame on him for getting the feds to force two people to plead guilty to a hate crime. You cannot read someone's mind and it was just a bad drug deal. Gays are drunks and drug addicts who spread disease.
