Hayes: Now We Know Where Supreme Court Justices Get Their News 1.4.2012 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Click here to view this media Chris Hayes took a shot at Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for where he apparently gets his news and for his hypocrisy with basing his rulings on partisan ideology and whether he likes a particular law or not when it comes to his opinion on interstate commerce. HAYES: We now know that many of the conservative Justices appear to be getting their information from reading right wing blogs. We know Justice Scalia even referenced the infamous “Cornhusker kickback”, a bete noire of Michelle Malkin and Red State, even though the deal cut with Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson to secure his vote for the ACA, didn't end up in the final legislation. Most importantly we were reminded that just seven years ago, while voting to uphold a federal law that outlawed marijuana grown for private medicinal consumption, Justice Scalia thought the Constitution's interstate Commerce Clause was so broad that Congress could regulate even non-economic interstate activities, so long as ...

Courts and Congress 31.3.2012 Salt Lake Tribune
Published Mar 31, 2012 01:01AM MDT Some protesters in front of the Supreme Court who are against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are noting that a majority of people are against it, as if popularity had something to do with the law’s constitutionality. Heck, if the federal government can take money from the paychecks of teenagers to pay for the health care and retirement of today’s senior citizens (Medicare and Social Security), why can’t it make everyone pay for their own health insurance? And, hell, if the govern... ...

Paul Clement: lawyer for the states emerges still hungry for healthcare fight 30.3.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
This week's supreme court battle has only served to enhance the reputation of the conservative courtroom specialist Like a boxer looking for an extra punch as his opponent heads towards the canvas, Paul Clement emerged from the supreme court still hungry for the fight. Six hours spent beating down President Obama's healthcare reforms just "wasn't enough", the lawyer is said to have told reporters as the nine justices began the count behind closed doors. It may be premature to rule an outright knock-out of the White House plans, but during the three-day session Clement, representing 26 states against the act, emerged as the legal pugilist of note. The encounter has further enhanced the reputation of the 45-year-old conservative courtroom specialist. Here's a list of his highlights from the case, and a trawl though his earlier legal battles. Paul Clement v Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act You can't create commerce simply to regulate it Clement suggested that the ...

$500m of US food aid lost to waste and company profit, says Oxfam 30.3.2012 The Guardian -- World Latest
More than 17 million more hungry people could have been reached by US-funded programmes in 2010 if 'tied aid' restrictions were lifted, according to report Nearly $500m of US food aid is lost to waste, inefficiency and the profit margins of big American agribusiness, according to a report by aid groups urging reforms on how US food aid is sourced and delivered. Oxfam America and the American Jewish World Service (AJWS), which published the report on Thursday, estimate more than 17 million more hungry people could have been reached by US-funded programmes in 2010 if "anachronistic" restrictions contained in the US farm bill had been lifted. The US provides roughly 50% of food aid globally at an estimated annual cost of $2bn. But unlike many other major donors, virtually all American food aid is "tied" and must be bought from US suppliers and transported on US ships – even if there are cheaper alternatives. The report urges Congress to relax these restrictions and curtail ...
