  • FCC Policy on Extending Construction Periods Is Being Revisited
    Court Decision on July 7 Leads FCC to Re-Evaluate - Post by Stu Nolan, 7/21/2011

    “A side effect of a July 7, 2011, decision by an appellate court has been to place in limbo the FCC's policy of extending construction permits by 18 months where the entity being assigned the permit is a "small business". This has the potential to place in jeopardy many construction permits where applicants were negotiating assignments of their permits to another entity in order to preserve the authorization to build a new facility. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has found the FCC's preferences for extending the permits of "eligible entities" to be arbitrary and capricious. In (http://www.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinarch/083078p.pdf) Prometheus v. FCC/(-, the Court ordered the FCC to establish a connection between the preference for small businesses and the overall policy goal of trying to promote increased ownership of broadcast media by favored groups pursuant to "identity politics", i.e., in this case, women and minorities. Permit holders should make appropriate contingency plans to meet their construction deadlines if the 18-month extension process is put on hold indefinitely. ... ”

  • Catholic Students and Educators ?Get It and Live It!?
    We are either Catholic, or we're not! - Post by Gerri Laird, 7/20/2011

    “What a breath of fresh air! Kudos to (http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/272032/detoxing-dorm-kathryn-jean-lopez) Kathryn Lopez for an inspiring article that begins and ends with the decision by John Garvey, president of the Catholic University of America (CUA), to return to single-sex dorms. Garvey understands his faith and is living it, but he isn't alone. Sandwiched in between the discussion about Garvey's common sense decision and the threat of a lawsuit, Lopez unveils a group of "twentysomethings looking for an alternative to the culture of utilitarianism around them" who "want neither to be used nor to use others. They see the inherent dignity of the human person and want to treat that, in themselves and others, with respect. They want to challenge themselves and expect more." ... ”

  • The Supreme Court and the Problem of Man
    Post by E. Scott Lloyd, 6/10/2011

    “The Supreme Court, when it claimed to recognize for women the "right" to abortion on demand, simultaneously stripped the fathers of these children of their right to be parents, and other associated rights. A recent (http://abcnews.go.com/US/abortion-billboard-lands-mexico-man-court-girlfriend/story?id=13783668) billboard by a New Mexico man has dramatically highlighted this truth. ... ”

The evidence cited by Barone suggests that the Obama administration has overstepped legal boundaries and in fact is undermining the rule of law. ... ”

  • New Poll Shows Growth in Popularity of Restricting Access to Abortion
    Trend Contrasts Americans' Apparent Confusion Over the Labels - Post by Stu Nolan, 5/23/2011

    “Americans continue the trend in recent years to favor strict regulatory controls to limit the number of abortions and the circumstances under which they may take place. A new (http://www.lifenews.com/2011/05/23/gallup-poll-americans-want-all-or-most-abortions-illegal/) Gallup poll reports that too many Americans do not understand that their position is essentially, albeit not completely, pro-life.
