Louisiana Senate Approves Ultrasound Bill Helping Women Ahead of Abortions

Supreme Court Continues to Impose Its Own Morality on States

The IRS Cracks Down on Small Charities

    Suzanne Garment writes at the Wall Street Journal full access via Google: “The IRS uses Form 990 to verify that charitable organizations meet the conditions for receiving tax-deductible contributions and qualifying for tax exemptions. Until now, the smallest charities did not have to file 990s. But thanks to a seemingly minor provision of the 2006 Pension Protection Act, more than 400,000 additional nonprofits—nearly half of public charities registered with the IRS—now have to do so. If not, the IRS will take steps to revoke their tax-exempt status . . . ”

Specter Down, Paul Up: Another bad night for the Beltway.

    Wall Street Journal full access via Google: “The establishment of both political parties took another pounding last night, as candidates anointed by the powers that be lost their primary races in convincing fashion.

Calling the teacher’s union’s bluffs in Rhode Island

    Frederick M. Hess writes at National Review: “In February, Superintendent Fran Gallo fired every teacher at Central Falls High School after they refused to get on board with her efforts to transform the poorly performing school — the teachers had previously embraced the transformation model, because it would protect their jobs, but then decided they didn’t want any measures that would, you know, actually transform the school. But yesterday, the teachers’ union acceded . . . ”

NH: HSLDA Challenges Absurd Ruling in State Supreme Court

George F. Will: Slow learners at the 9th Circuit

The Supreme Court’s Decision About Sexually Dangerous Federal Prisoners: Could It Hold the Key to the Constitutionality of the Individual Mandate to Buy Health Insurance?

    Michael C. Dorf writes at Findlaw: “On Monday, in United States v. Comstock, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the power of the federal government to confine mentally ill, sexually dangerous prisoners beyond the expiration of their criminal sentences. Interesting in its own right, the case also provides a window into the thinking of the various Justices on core questions of federalism. Comstock could thus become an important precedent if and when the Court is asked to rule on the individual mandate to purchase health insurance that was recently adopted as part of the federal health care reform law. Meanwhile, with tea-party activists having organized their movement around the principle of limited government–including, especially, opposition to the individual mandate–questions about Comstock could also play an important role in the upcoming confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan . . . ”
