Congress passes two bills on international religious freedom

Despite doctor suggesting abortion, Congresswoman’s miracle baby turns one

    The Daily Signal: Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Wash., told Fox and Friends Monday that “even well-meaning doctors don’t always know” best. After discovering her daughter had been diagnosed with a rare fetal syndrome, Beutler’s doctor told her that many women “would be scheduling a termination now,” Beutler told People. Doctors wrongly predicted Beutler’s daughter wouldn’t survive past pregnancy because of her lack of kidneys, but the now one-year-old “miracle” child proved them wrong.

    Weekly Standard: “Republicans have denounced such actions as ‘lawless.’ But if what the president has done is illegal, then why haven’t Republicans, or anyone else, taken him to court to stop him? According to Senator Mike Lee of Utah, a conservative Republican with impeccable legal credentials, the main problem is finding someone who would have the standing to sue the president over his unilateral changes to the law.”

The President vs. The Senate: Supreme Court to weigh in on Obama’s nominations power play

    David Rivkin and Lee Casey at Wall Street Journal (via Google): Later this month the Supreme Court will hear a case that should resolve how much latitude presidents have to make recess appointments to federal offices that otherwise require Senate confirmation. The boundary of this power has never been decided by the high court. Yet the entire scheme of the U.S. Constitution—which is based on a separation of powers, enforced through checks and balances to safeguard individual liberty—is at stake. Noel Canning v. NLRB involves several recess appointments President Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board on Jan. 4, 2012.

America, We Have a Problem — It’s a Constitutional Crisis

    Fred J. Eckert at Townhall: America, we have a problem: We are in the midst of a serious constitutional crisis. Consider what has been happening in our nation’s capital: President Barack Obama has asserted and acted upon the notion that he can at whim and by decree make changes to law – and Speaker Boehner is complicit both by his continuing acceptance of the president’s unilaterally changing law and by his publicly urging the president to do so one more time.
