“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday turned her back on her own White House history to liken the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby religious freedom case to countries  that practice Sharia law to discriminate against women.” – BizPAC Review

“The Obama administration has been struggling to clear up data discrepancies that could potentially jeopardize coverage for millions under the health overhaul, the government’s health care fraud watchdog reported Tuesday.” – Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“I find it amusing that a guy who is attacking conservatives for living in their own version of reality is relying on polling as some sort of evidence for ‘climate change.’ What if there were a poll showing the vast majority of people don’t believe in ‘climate change?’ Would that alter the ‘science’ or would he suddenly not care about polling? So it’s ‘science, not opinion’ that matters unless the science is inconvenient for the cultists, then it’s all personal observation and opinion polls.” – DrewM/Ace Of Spades

“I’ve often thought about Mrs. Abdo, and I’m thinking about her today on the news that the bodies of three Jewish teenagers, kidnapped on June 12, have been found near the city of Hebron “under a pile of rocks in an open field,” as an Israeli military spokesman put it. Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, had their whole lives ahead of them. The lives of their families will forever be wounded, or crippled, by heartbreak.” – Bret Stephens/WSJ

“We are now witnessing the true turning of the political tide, and hopefully after the 2014 Midterm Elections, much of the corrupting nature of the current crop of leaders in D.C. will be washed away for good.” – Ulsterman

Government just doesn’t work very well. That’s the persuasive thesis of three important books published this year.” – Michael Barone/National Review

“It is not surprising that most leftist commentators are completely missing the boat on the Hobby Lobby decision. After all, one does not become a writer for The Nation or Mother Jones or DailyKos by being smart or knowledgeable. What’s troubling is that the White House seems equally clueless as to what actually happened today – although it’s still up in the air whether this is by incompetence or design.” – Leon Wolf/RedState

“How did women get birth control before President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act? Before Obamacare, a woman could go to a doctor and get birth control. She often had to pay or make a copayment for contraception. But in the 2014 political lexicon, that means she had no access.” – Debra Saunders/Real Clear Politics

It’s not as if no one saw this coming. Last week, Masoud Barzani told CNN that the time had arrived for Kurds to go their own way, a comment that prompted a visit from John Kerry to argue that ‘united Iraq is a stronger Iraq.’ Clearly, the Kurds don’t agree — or perhaps more accurately, consider a ‘united Iraq’ a moot point:” – Hot Air
