First a caveat. This fight is long from over but, make no mistake; it is a victory for those who oppose Obamacare. Federal Judge Henry Hudson ruled yesterday that the Individual Mandate provision in the Obamacare law is Unconstitutional in the lawsuit filed by Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli (R). This is a huge victory because it portends a much greater likelihood that this fight will end up in the Supreme Court.

While on Greta Van Susteren, Cuccinelli explains why it's such a big deal when only one aspect of the Law (the mandate) was struck down; it has to do with the funding. The authors of the bill knew it would be dead in the water if they advocated for additional taxes to fund this monstrosity so they added a requirement that everyone must purchase health insurance.

Cuccinelli explains it just right. The Individual mandate is the pole in the center of the tent. Without that, Obamacare fails. If the Supreme Court strikes down that mandate, the law is useless and is doomed to fail with the 112th Congress.

Alinsky-ite Chris Matthews learned the art of ridicule from uncle Saul but I don't think he'll find an appropriate way of responding to Cavuto's righteous slam of him in the Rules for Radicals handbook. Last week, Chris Matthews went after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, not on policy but on his weight. The MSNBC socialist attacked Christie for being too heavy. On Monday, December 13th, Fox News Channel's Neil Cavuto went after Matthews and called him a racist; he didn't use that word exactly but he DID say that attacking someone's weight is akin to 'Racism with a scale.'

I think we can infer that based on that definition, Cavuto thinks Matthews is a racist. This is a thorough smack down of Leg Tingles.

If you haven't heard the Matthews comments Cavuto references, check them out. Remember, Matthews is supposed to represent the "tolerant" left. This is obscene and it's disgraceful. Cavuto went easy on him.


Get ready for this one because it's a doosey. There is a pro-Israel group known as Z Street that is being denied tax exempt status by the IRS because Israel is a terrorist state. How was the IRS able to reach such a conclusion? Because terrorism takes place within Israel's borders. Lost on the IRS is the fact that the terrorism that takes place is by those who want to eliminate Israel from existence. Prior to this latest IRS position, Z Street alleged that the reason it was denied tax exempt status was because its policy toward Israel didn't jive with the policy of the Obama administration.

Check out the Press Release from Z Street:
12/11/10 We now have the mind-numbing IRS defense for delaying (almost a year now!) Z STREET's application for tax exempt status. In a signed affidavit, an IRS official explains that there is no "Israel Special Policy," instead it is a Terrorism Special Policy, and that Israel is included. That's right, Israel is a terrorist state because terrorism happens there. True, Israel is the victim, but why quibble with details? This brings moral equivalency to a whole new level. Every Zionist should be screaming from the rooftops. The brief is here and the most significant of the IRS affidavits is here. The affidavit of the agent in charge of Z STREET's application is here. And you'll be shocked, shocked to learn that the government completely ignores that it asked of another organization whether that organization "supports the existence of Israel", and what are that organization's "religious beliefs about the land of Israel." That doesn't quite fit into their new defense. Nor, of course, the Constitution.
Ok, this convoluted logic on the part of the IRS to conclude that Israel is a terrorist state because terrorism exists within the state of Israel, raises another question with me. Does Israel get extra credit for preventing acts of terrorism by constructing the security fence along the West Bank? I understand the number of suicide bombings in that area has plummeted to virtually zero.
