Senator Dick Durbin – the guy who only recently discovered soot in Chicago’s Union Train Station – doesn’t know whether the 1st Amendment applies to bloggers.

Seen on the American Catholic:

One of the worst senators in the nation, Dick Durbin (D.Ill.), wonders whether the First Amendment covers bloggers in the above video.

I can understand why Durbin brings this up.  First, because Durbin is a Democrat hack.  Originally elected to Congress from the congressional district including Springfield, Illinois, Durbin ran as a pro-lifer, defeating pro-abort Republican Congressman Paul Findley.

Realizing that a pro-life Democrat was going nowhere in Congress, he switched to being a pro-abort and now has a 100% rating from NARAL and a 0% rating from National Right to Life.  That he is a Catholic is of course of no consequence to him in regard to his politically expedient choice of embracing abortion uber alles.

Durbin is a down the line liberal and most contemporary liberals and Democrats hate and fear the new media that does not give them lock step subservience as does most of the mainstream media.

Fortnight for Freedom Issue #1: President Barack Obama wants to replace authentic Christianity with his phony, secular religious belief system.

by Doug Lawrence

While the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution prevents Congress from setting up a state religion, or from interfering with the free exercise and practice of any other, the President and the Executive Branch of the U. S. Government have no direct power or authority in these matters, at all.

The President has only indirect authority to enact certain programs and policies under the auspices of the controversial Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) … the constitutionality of which has yet to be determined.

Mr. Obama and his minions believe that artificial birth control is good, that is should be provided to all, free of charge, and that the American People should be forced to pay for it … not via taxation … but through some queer type of forced conscription … where insurance premiums are creatively diverted by the government … and then used for something which the U.S. Congress never envisioned, intended or sanctioned.

The President’s liberal secular ideology on this matter constitutes nothing less than an alternative religious belief.  As such, any government attempt to impose that belief system or practice on the citizens of the United States is expressly prohibited by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

In short, the President has absolutely no authority to demand that the Catholic Church … or anyone else … pay for someone else’s birth control, sterilization, or abortion … either directly … or through an indirect diversion of health care premiums … but for a number of reasons, he would like you to think that he does.

Over the last 2,000 years, the Catholic Church has seen scores of petty tyrants (and some not so petty ones) come and go … and the Church still stands. Tell President Barack Obama that Catholics are not easily fooled, nor are they easily intimidated.

Taking appropriate note of Barack Obama’s Marxist/Leninist “roots” … not too long ago … when push came to shove … the Soviet Union squared off against the people of Poland, Solidarity, Pope John Paul II and the Catholic Church. History duly records, in spite of all their tanks and troops, that it was the Soviets who were shaken to their very foundations, and then, shortly ceased to exist.

The Catholic Church remains the world’s longest reigning continuous world government, not because of the power of corrupt men like President Barack Obama, or even good men like Pope John Paul II, but according to the grace and power of Jesus Christ, who is God Almighty, King of Kings and Lord of Lords … as well as the founder, advocate and eternal CEO of the Catholic Church.

Let that be a lesson to the forces of evil, wherever they may lurk!
