The pace of change impacting the United States of America is accelerating at an alarming rate. This week the Supreme Court bolstered Obamacare by rewriting the law and sanctioning the subsidies that are the centerpiece of the program. On Friday, by a 5-4 margin, the justices legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. This sweeping decision rendered meaningless the vote of Americans in states across the nation.
In essence, these Supreme Court justices, a majority appointed by Republicans, have become a leading force in advancing the liberal agenda. According to research from the New York Times, 54% of the rulings in this term have been liberal, making it the most left wing Supreme Court in 46 years.
In Congress, spineless Republicans have refused to withdraw funding from Obamacare or the President's executive order to grant amnesty to five million illegal aliens. With de-facto open borders, illegal immigrants continue to stream into the country. Unlike previous generations, millions of both legal and illegal immigrants are clinging to the customs and culture of their homeland instead of assimilating into the United States of America. more >>
Newly released FBI documents confirm, just like President Obama, hard-core communism runs deep in the family of his most influential and trusted advisor, Valerie Jarrett. Ms. Jarrett is the one some describe as Mr. Obama's puppet-master…the wind beneath his wings…the real president.
The FBI documents reveal Ms. Jarrett's late father, James E. Bowman, was in contact with a paid Soviet agent wanted for espionage and was also involved with communist front groups in the 1950s. Her mother's father, Robert Rochon Taylor, was in a business relationship with the same Soviet agent linked to her father and also investigated by the FBI for his affiliation in communist groups. The FBI also flagged Ms. Jarrett's late father-in-law, Vernon D. Jarrett, as a domestic security risk, raising money and openly supporting communist candidates. He was assigned by Communist Party USA to a special cultural arts group whose mission was to propagate the Communist Party line through indoctrination using the media of the day, including newspapers and radio. In a nutshell, according to the FBI file, Ms. Jarrett's relatives were heavily involved with a group, Communist Party USA, whose mission was to fundamentally transform the American form of government and way of life.
The FBI report finally gives proof to support what many who've watched this White House with eyes wide open have long suspected: The children of communists are running our country in a way that would make their folks proud. But, to quote Hillary Clinton, using her most-annoying-sound-in-the-world-Benghazi-screech: "What difference does it make?" To answer, it makes a world of difference, considering there is no such thing as good communism, just bad and worse. more >>

Friday's Supreme Court decision redefining marriage in all 50 states to include same-sex couples will infringe upon the religious freedoms of those holding traditional views about marriage, dissenting justices warned.
While religious accommodations have been written into state laws redefining marriage, the U.S. Supreme Court did not, and could not, do that in claiming that gay marriage is a fundamental right; inevitably, this will lead to religious freedom conflicts, Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in his dissenting opinion.
"Unfortunately, people of faith can take no comfort in the treatment they receive from the majority today," he wrote. (For simplicity, footnotes have been removed from all quotes.) more >>
President Barack Obama responded Friday to the Supreme Court's 5-4 favorable ruling gay marriage, saying that the decision was "a victory for the allies and friends and supporters who spent years, even decades working and praying for change to come."
The Supreme Court's decision putting an end to state bans on issuing marriage licenses for same-sex couples was in response to the Obergefell v. Hodges. Read CP's coverage of the ruling: Supreme Court Says States Must Recognize Gay Marriage. Read the court's ruling here.

In the wake of the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling Friday that the Fourteenth Amendment requires all 50 states to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, numerous social conservative and religious groups are calling the court's ruling an abuse of judicial power and a decision that could hurt religious liberty in America.
Among the numerous commenters, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins wrote in a statement that the court's ruling violates the Constitution's call for states to define their own marriage laws.
"Five justices on the Supreme Court have overturned the votes of 50 million Americans and demanded that the American people walk away from millennia of history and the reality of human nature," Perkins stated. "In reaching a decision so lacking in foundation in the text of the Constitution, in our history, and in our traditions, the Court has done serious damage to its own legitimacy." more >>
