The whole country has been watching the Supreme Court’s hearings on Obamacare, but there were other important Supreme Court rulings this week that were virtually ignored by the press.

First up is attorney James Mason from Home School Legal Defense (www.hslda.org). The Supreme Court declined to hear a case involving a homeschool family where a social worker forced entry into their home on minimal probable cause.

Then constitutional attorney Jonathan Emord (www.restoretherepublic.co) examines the Supreme Court’s favorable decision in the case of the Sackett family in Priest Lake, Idaho. The Sacketts were building a house on property they purchased when the EPA arbitrarily declared their property a wetland, demanded they dismantle the construction, cease use of the property and fined them $37,000 a day until they complied with no venue for an appeals hearing. Unfortunately this is not an isolated case.

The Pope was in Cuba last week. Why does the world media have a fetish about mass murderer Che Guevara, Castro’s henchman? Yale Professor Carlos Eire grew up in the same Cuban neighborhood as Che. He is author of the “Waiting for Snow in Havana,” which won the National Book Award in 2003.

John’s boralogue answers critical emails regarding the debate with Ronald Sider on last week’s show.

Enforcing Morality by Immoral Means

Time for a lively debate on the program. The “Ryan budget” made its debut in Congress and with it the inevitable debate. Many seem to think that a combination of taxing the rich and a few spending cuts can bring the deficit/debt problem under control. This is naiveté in the light of the numbers. But what to cut? Some propose caring for those less fortunate is paramount in fixing the deficit. Is this even possible given the level of indebtedness? Ronald Sider from Evangelicals for Social Action (www.evangelicalsforsocialaction.org) is author of “Fixing the Moral Deficit, A Balanced Way to Balance the Budget.”

If there is one group that has been badly cheated by America’s failing public education system, it’s the African-American community. Merisa Parson Davis (www.merisadavis.com) is author of the book, “Bill Cosby is Right,” and she’s got hard-hitting controversial ideas about fixing the problem. She’s also Dr. Cosby’s cousin.

John’s boralogue examines a series of news articles from the week that are silent indicators of where global politics are headed.
