The Supreme Court on Wednesday announced a ruling on a case involving the part of the Defense of Marriage Act law that defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman for purposes of federal benefits.

Legal analysts were reading the decision to understand its scope and consequences.

A ruling was also expected on a case involving Proposition 8, the 2008 California voter initiative that banned same-sex marriage in that state.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, the ban on federal benefits for same-sex married couples, on a 5-4 vote. Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for himself and the court’s liberals finds that the 1996 law is unconstitutional.

DOMA "violates basic due process and equal protection principles applicable to the federal government," Kennedy wrote. The majority opinion also criticizes DOMA as an intrusion on states’ traditional role defining marriage."

"DOMA undermines both the public and private significance of state-sanctioned same-sex marriages; for it tells those couples, and all the world, that their otherwise valid marriages are unworthy of federal recognition," Kennedy added.

Booz Allen Hamilton: What You Don’t Know About Snowden’s Former Employer

06-24-2013  •  dailypaul.com

Let’s take another trip down the rabbit hole, shall we? Lost in the Edward Snowden debate is a critical look at his former employer, the company doing the spying on Americans in the first place: Booz Allen Hamilton. Booz Allen Hamilton is a

…Mainstream Corporate Media Is More Interested in Capturing Snowden than Condemning the Abuses He Exposed  … What a difference a few decades make…

Yes, there was a time that the Washington Post brought down an administration because the paper had the guts to allow two DC urban reporters to pursue the Watergate burglary to the end, over months and months.  There was a time that the Washington Post and the New York Times published the Pentagon Papers in open defiance of the Nixon administration, knowing that disseminating the classified information was a public service to debating a war that had been sold with lies.

Fast forward and the New York Times and the Washington Post became cheerleaders for the Iraq War, gobbling up the barest wisps of manufactured lies as evidence that Saddam Hussein was harboring weapons of mass destruction.   The New York Times and Washington Post were stenographers for the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Iraq "Shock and Awe" war public relations offensive.

Now, around a decade later, the Washington Post is running stories such as 
"Obama’s hands-off approach to extraditing Snowden draws criticism":

clip_image002Liberty University: Training Champions for Christ and Drone Pilots for the Military

During its forty-two-plus years of existence, it has become the largest Christian Evangelical University in the world. Despite its founder’s life-long anti-government activism, it receives several hundred million dollars annually in federal financial aid money. Its been the center of a number of political controversies over the years, as exemplified by the headline "Big Brother: Chancellor [Jerry] Falwell [Jr.] is Trying to Turn Tax-Exempt Liberty University Into a Partisan Political Machine — and Dominate Lynchburg Elections. Will the IRS Step in?," in the April 2010 issue of Church & State magazine.

Since it’s founding in 1971, the Reverend Jerry Falwell’s, Liberty University has weathered several serious financial challenges: It was bailed out of near-financial collapse by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who funneled lifeline funds to a non-profit Forest, Va.-based organization called Christian Heritage Foundation; and, Falwell’s death in 2007, provided an insurance windfall that allowed the university to wiggle its way out of yet another financial headlock.

Now a new line of business is helping to grow and stabilize Liberty University. David Swanson’s investigative reporting, posted on the Huntington News website and in Sojourners magazine, has revealed that this Christian university has become one of the foremost national training grounds of "pilots who go up in planes and drone pilots who sit behind desks wearing pilot suits."

Passing the buck … meaningless statement … the Keystone XL pipeline will be build … effect on greenhouse gases be damned…

 

President Barack Obama will announce in his climate speech Tuesday that he will direct the State Department to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline only if it will not increase greenhouse gas emissions, according to a senior administration official.

The State Department and environmentalists have already clashed over an agency draft study that found the pipeline would not significantly increase greenhouse gases.
