A number of readers have alerted me to this video, which originally was posted on YouTube by Adam Smith, the Chief Financial Officer of medical products maker Vante (via Gateway Pundit):

Why pick on a drive-through window clerk?  The video seemed to capture in minutes the entire bullying methodology of the left.

Needless to say, the reaction...

We’ve seen the Mayors of Boston and Chicago abuse their power to drive a lawful business out of their jurisdictions by threatening to withhold business permits because the founder and President support the definition of marriage as one man – one woman.

When those threats generated an outcry even from many liberals, the same politicians,...

I can’t say I’m surprised it came to threats from the Mayors of Boston and Chicago, and a Chicago Alderman, to deny Chick-fil-A a business permit because the owners support the traditional definition of marriage as one man – one woman.  Or that two other Mayors, in San Francisco and D.C., have jumped on...

Well, if we’re using the same “difference of opinion” standard that was used to call for the boycott of Chick-Fil-A, then it sure would seem it. If the 30 states that have enacted legislation or constitutional amendments defining marriage as between a man and woman decided to engage in the same...

Even The Boston Globe has come out against the bullying of Chick-fil-A by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino because of the position of Chick-fil-A’s President and his father (the founder) on marriage:

The president of Chick-fil-A opposes gay marriage. While this view goes against the grain in a state that made history by embracing...

The Mayor of Boston thinks he has the right to deny business permits to a business if he doesn’t like the views of the owners of the business on gay marriage.

From The Boston Herald:

Mayor Thomas M. Menino is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from bringing its Southern-fried fast-food empire to Boston —...

Most Americans suspect that President Obama was motivated by politics, not policy, when he declared his support for same-sex marriage, according to a new poll released on Monday, suggesting that the unplanned way it was announced shaped public attitudes.

When politically convenient in 2008 Obama was against gay marriage on religious and principled grounds; when less convenient in 2012 because he is in need of campaign cash and wants to divert the public away from the economy, he’s...

I just want to get this straight.

Everyone knew Obama supported gay marriage, but didn’t say so when campaigning for president in 2008 and 2012 for political reasons.

Everyone knew the “evolving” meme was BS, Obama was just waiting for the right moment, preferably after re-election.

Everyone knew that Obama was under intense pressure...

Of course Obama supports gay marriage. Of course once he is free of the need to get reelected he will do everything within the power of the Executive Branch to effect a de facto federal policy change.   Of course he has not been truthful with his “evolving” narrative.

Can you imagine the uproar if a major conservative publication ran an image like this?

The image is from New York Magazine, however, and it’s in support of gay marriage, so the response will be muted, Obama Gay Marriage Evolution Watch: Day 468.

More to follow. The decision is embedded below.

The Court essentially used a bootstrap argument — that since there was a prior right to samesex marriage (based on a California Supreme Court decision which gave rise to Prop. 8 ) — the taking away of that right without justification violated the 14th...

The California Supreme Court has just resolved a major procedural issue as to Prop. 8, which codified the “one man, one woman” definition of marriage into the California Constitution after the California Supreme Court held that there was a state constitutional right for same-sex marriage.

The opponents of Prop. 8 sued in...
