(CUSA) - If you haven't been following the oppression of free speech in a lawsuit against Mark Steyn it is worth a look. We wrote about it in February, but the absurdity of persecuting a journalist for being a "climate change denier" continues. The mainstream media is so invested in a certain outcome that freedom has become at best an empty word, or worse, something to be rejected as evil. "Freedom is Slavery" as Orwell put it. In his blog, Mark Steyn updates us on the ongoing absurdity and how even some Leftists are becoming uncomfortable with the direction this is taking towards oppressing the Freedom of the Press: How bad are things for free speech in America right now? This week the Supreme Court turned its attention to an Ohio law under which people can be fined or jailed if the "election commission" pronounces them guilty of "lying" in a political ad.

Of all the fraud perpetrated in the passage of Obamacare — and the fraud has been epic — the lowest is President Obama’s latest talking point that the Supreme Court has endorsed socialized medicine as constitutional. To the contrary, the justices held the “Affordable” Care Act unconstitutional as Obama presented it to the American people: namely, as a legitimate exercise of Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce.

Is it true? "Literally" his own worst enemy... "... Chief Justice John Roberts had written both the majority opinion in the Obamacare decision and the dissent. He is literally his own worst enemy. He’s apparently the Mike Myers of the Supreme Court, able to play both Austin Powers and Dr. Evil, although it has to be said that he seems rather more at home as the bumbling swinger." Mark Steyn
The brilliant wit of Mark Steyn after last week's SCOTUS debacle... "The U.S. Supreme Court is starting to look like Britain's National Health Service - you wait two years to get in, and then they tell you there's nothing wrong. And you can't get a second opinion."
You reject that it’s a tax increase?” George Stephanopoulos demanded to know on ABC. “I absolutely reject that notion,” replied the president. Yet “that notion” is the only one that would fly at the Supreme Court. -Mark Steyn
