[Bearbeiten] Obama Judicial Pick Cornelia Pillard- Abortion Needed to -Fr
A lot can happen between now and Congress s August recess and that s exactly what conservatives should be concerned about. Senate Democrats seem to be banking on the fact that Americans are on vacation and not paying attention, because liberal leaders are trying to slip in a quiet confirmation hearing for Cornelia Nina Pillard.
A Georgetown law professor, Pillard is the President s latest nominee to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and only the second one since President George W. Bush to wait less than two months for a hearing. Why the rush? Ed Whalen of NRO s Bench Memos suspects that Pillard (who s been described to him as less moderate than the most activist liberal in appellate court history) wouldn t survive intense scrutiny. The hurry, , seems designed to prevent a careful review of their records. Obama himself has taken forever to make nominations to the D.C. Circuit, and that court remains underworked, so it is difficult to see the justification for the sudden rush. Unfortunately for Americans, the Senate won t have to dig too deep to uncover some of Pillard s shockers. Among some of her greatest hits, the former Deputy Assistant Attorney General argues that abortion is necessary to help free women from historically routine conscription into maternity. As if her militant feminism wasn t apparent enough, she takes the opportunity in some of her writings to slam anyone who opposes the abortion-contraception mandate as reinforce[ing] broader patterns of discrimination against women as a class of presumptive breeders. A mother of two, Nina wrote a 2011 paper, Against the New Maternalism, which argues that by celebrating motherhood, society is creating a self-fulfilling cycle of discrimination. Those ideas bleed into Pillard s ,Sidney Rice #18 Jersey, which suggest that technology is somehow manipulating Americans to consider the personhood of the unborn. In one of her most jaw-dropping statements, the President s nominee even criticizes the ultrasound. She believes it manufactures deceptive images of fetus-as-autonomous-being that the anti-choice movement has popularized since the advent of amniocentesis. As crazy and outrageous as her other comments are,Michigan’s McGary focused, but thinking NBA, this one is a denial of basic biology! She actually rejects modern science on human development because it conflicts with her hard-core ideology. If that doesn t disqualify someone from the second most prestigious court in America,Seattle Seahawks Jersey, I m not sure what does. Except maybe this: Pillard is so fiercely opposed to abstinence education that she has said publicly she would . In Our Other Reproductive Choices, Nina argues that abstinence-only curriculum is permeated with stereotyped messages and sex-based double standards which, , makes it vulnerable to an equal protection challenge.

Egalitarian sex education should reaffirm the value of sexual pleasure for females as well as males. She argues that too many Christian conservatives see men s sex drive and sexual satisfaction [as] privileged, while women s is demonized or ignored. That just proves how little Pillard knows about the people she s criticizing. FRC, ironically, just made talking about sexual satisfaction and how it s greater for both men and women when enjoyed in the confines of a lifelong,Cheap Seattle Seahawks T-Shirts, monogamous, man-woman marriage.

[Bearbeiten] ‘Net Neutrality’ Case May Decide the Fate of Netflix, YouT
A landmark net neutrality case in Washington D.C. federal court could lead to Internet service providers deciding what services can be streamed through their networks,Seattle Seahawks Fan #12 Jersey, spelling doom for your Netflix or Hulu subscription. Net neutrality, the idea that all users deserve equal access to online information, has governed the Internet since the beginning. Internet service providers (ISPs) like Comcast, AT T and Verizon have to be “neutral” about the content their customers access via their broadband network. A Federal Communication Commission “Open Internet” rule passed in 2010 bans an ISP from blocking lawful content or other Internet services. Without an open Internet, rights activists say, companies like Facebook, Skype and Twitter would not have stood a chance. “These rules provide an important safeguard both for innovation and investment on the Internet,” said David Sohn, an attorney with the Center for Democracy and Technology, which supports the FCC rule. But Verizon isn’t happy with the FCC regulations. The company filed suit in federal court alleging the net neutrality rules violate their First Amendment rights. Since their broadband network transmits the speech of others,Nike Seahawks Jersey, Verizon wants the right to “editorial discretion” over what their users do online. Sohn said if Verizon gets that right it will lead to all ISPs playing “favorites” by blocking and degrading services like YouTube,Armed Raid on Remote Alaskan Town With Population of 17 Reve, Netflix or Hulu to make users utilize their own services or that of their partners. “It is not up to the FCC to decide these issues on its own,” said Verizon attorney Helgi Walker. “It has no implied authority, no express authority … and it’s highly unlikely that Congress would have delegated authority in such a convoluted way.” Verion and other service providers worry that if the FCC ever tightens regulation on broadband then prices might be regulated as well. Verizon argues that the FCC overstepped its bounds with the Open Internet rules. The company claims that the FCC only documented four occasions in the last six years in which an ISP blocked content. The FCC says the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the Communications Act of 1934 give it the authority to enforce net neutrality. “This affects most Americans who watch a move on Netflix or who make a phone call on Vonage,” said Pantelis Michalopoulos, lawyer for parties arguing in support of the FCC rules. In December 2010,Cheap Seattle Seahawks T-Shirts, the FCC won a 3-2 majority that ensured the Internet “has no gatekeepers limiting innovation and communication through the network.” The appeals hearing began Monday. Three judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit are not expected to rule for several months. Sources: , Get More: | | | | |
