The House on Wednesday approved a highly contentious lawsuit against President Obama over his alleged abuse of executive power, teeing up an election-year legal battle sure to spill onto the midterm campaign trail.

The House backed the lawsuit resolution on a vote of 225-201, with all Democrats opposed. Republicans say the lawsuit is necessary to keep the president in constitutional check, after he allegedly exceeded his authority with unilateral changes to the Affordable Care Act. Democrats branded the effort a political charade aimed at stirring up GOP voters for this fall's congressional elections. They also said it's an effort by top Republicans to mollify conservatives who want Obama to be impeached -- something House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said he has no plans to do.

Following an electrifying encounter with law enforcement Wednesday that ended with Hawkes being charged with resisting arrest and failing to obey an officer, the candidate is free on $300 bail and says he is "absolutely" still running for office.

Furthermore, the potential future mayor of Maui says he's going to sue the police department over his latest run in with the law and, once elected, will order cops to discontinue using their stun guns. "Tasers are a violation of our human rights," the mayoral hopeful told KITV News this week. "Maui Police Department will be the first police department to ban the user of Tasers."

Putting economies on an energy diet is not the way to fight climate change.

Environmentalists had a global meltdown last week after Australia scrapped its carbon tax. They denounced the move as "retrograde" and "environmental vandalism." They can fume all they want, but Australia's action, combined with Europe's floundering cap-and-trade program, signals that "mitigation" strategies-curbing greenhouse gases by putting economies on an energy diet-are not winning or workable.

Because freedom can't protect itself Government Spying Undermines Media Freedom and Right to Counsel, ACLU- Human Rights Watch Shows

Large-scale U.S. surveillance is seriously hampering U.S.-based journalists and lawyers in their work, the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch said in a joint report released today. Surveillance is undermining media freedom and the right to counsel, and ultimately obstructing the American people's ability to hold their government to account, the groups said. The 120-page report, "With Liberty to Monitor All: How Large-Scale U.S. Surveillance is Harming Journalism, Law, and American Democracy," is based on extensive interviews with dozens of journalists, lawyers, and senior U.S. government officials. It documents how national security journalists and lawyers are adopting elaborate steps or otherwise modifying their practices to keep communications, sources, and other confidential information secure in light of revelations of unprecedented U.S. government surveillance of electronic communications and transactions. The report finds that government surveillance and secrecy are undermining press freedom, the public's right to information, and the right to counsel, all human rights essential to a healthy democracy.

Civil rights activist and independent journalist, Joel Chandler is founder of Florida Open Government Watch. The group conducts regular litmus tests of public records requests to see if police departments are abiding by the law.

Because of the government's inability to keep itself accountable, the duty of public records requests accountability has literally been passed on to the citizen and their ability to seek litigation. In 2009 the Florida Governor's Commission On Open Government Reform delivered a 194 report. In it the blue-ribbon commission opined "...the burden of enforcing violations of Florida's open meetings and public records laws generally falls to citizens who have few alternatives other than seeking an injunction or filing suit in civil court to compel compliance." Luckily there are folks out there like fogwatch.org that are active in compelling compliance.

"Chilling" is the word lawyers use to describe governmental behavior that does not directly interfere with constitutionally protected freedoms, but rather tends to deter folks from exercising them.

Classic examples of "chilling" occurred in the 1970s, when FBI agents and U.S. Army soldiers, in business suits with badges displayed or in full uniform, showed up at anti-war rallies and proceeded to photograph and tape record protesters. When an umbrella group of protesters sued the government, the Supreme Court dismissed the case, ruling that the protesters lacked standing -- meaning, because they could not show that they were actually harmed, they could not invoke the federal courts for redress. Yet, they were harmed, and the government knew it.

The DC Court of Appeals dealt a devastating blow to Obamacare today, striking down an IRS interpretation of a certain provision dealing with the Exchanges and subsidies.

Liberals know that Obamacare is in big trouble, and today's ruling confirms it. There are still other lawsuits out there that are challenging the healthcare law, looking at the Origination Clause of the Constitution. Any of these other lawsuits could deal the final blow that kills Obamacare.
