As I’m sure you now know, the U.S. Supreme Court granted Liberty Counsel’s Petition for Rehearing in the ObamaCare case of Liberty University et al v. Geithner. The High Court’s ruling says that Liberty Counsel’s “Day in Court” against ObamaCare is far from over! In fact, it’s just beginning – again – at the federal appellate level. With their recent ruling, the Supreme Court directed that our case be reheard at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia.
ObamaCare MUST be struck down!
Congress clearly exceeded its power by forcing every employer to provide federally mandated insurance. But even more shocking is the abortion mandate, which collides with constitutional guarantees of religious freedom and rights of conscience.
Also in question is whether the First Amendment Free Exercise of Religion Clause and the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) have been violated by both the employer and the individual “abortion mandate” that has been exposed during ObamaCare’s implementation.
How we got another shot at taking down ObamaCare in court.
The fact that a highly technical and narrow ruling by the Supreme Court in June of this year found the President’s healthcare “reform” law to be permissible under the Constitution as a tax did not settle the issues contained in our original lawsuit. The Court ruled (wrongly in my opinion) that Congress has the authority to pass the individual mandate as a tax. But many issues were not decided that were contained in our case that was pending at the Supreme Court. That was why I felt we must file a petition for rehearing, and is likely the reason why the Supreme Court ordered the federal court of appeals to hear our arguments.
The legal battle against ObamaCare is among the most historic pieces of litigation ever fought in the United States federal judiciary – and Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit is now on the forefront of all judicial efforts to have the law overturned! This may well pave the way for the case to return to the High Court in 2013 – before the law’s full implementation in 2014.
I believe that God orchestrated this chain of events because of the fervent prayers of so many friends of Liberty Counsel! As you may remember, over 76,000 friends like you committed to prayer for our case and were listed in our Amici Book (Book of Friends) that accompanied me during our hearing at the court of appeals. Eventually, over 100,000 “amici” (friends) signed the book and committed to prayer. Now our case has been given new life!
I need you to once again accompany me as I enter that courtroom. I pray you will stand with me, the Liberty Counsel Litigation Team, and tens of thousands of your fellow patriotic Americans who REFUSE to allow the Left to turn America into just another socialist state!
What a blessing to know that you and many, many others will be there with me, praying for our success! To make this possible, we are compiling another powerful Amici Book, which is Latin for “Book of Friends.”
I’m asking you to join with at least 100,000 of our faithful Liberty Counsel team members to sign the 2013 Amici Book, which I will once again place prominently at our Counsel’s Table…. directly across the aisle from Attorney General Eric Holder’s team from the Department of Justice (DOJ)!
Looking back over many years of fighting in court for liberty, life, and family, I know that my most successful court experiences have come when I was undergirded by prayers and support from tens of thousands of friends like you. That is what the Amici Book will do for me and the other members of our litigation team when I place it at the Counsel’s Table along with our legal notes, briefs, and other resources. This way, you can join me in that courtroom!
Please take a moment right now to sign the Amici Book and declare that you will personally stand with me as I once again take on the daunting challenge of battling with the Obama administration and the Department of Justice:
Make your statement heard in Heaven and on Earth!
This is what you will be declaring by adding your signature to those of tens of thousands of your fellow citizens…
*I am with you in the courtroom!
*I am praying for you!
*I wholeheartedly support Liberty Counsel’s litigation challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare!
More than anything else, Liberty Counsel’s Amici Book (the concept is called a “Book of Remembrance” in the Bible – see especially the Lord’s preparation of a book of Believers as described in Malachi 3:16) is a way of allowing YOU to be literally present and part of our efforts to STOP ObamaCare before it is too late! Please, send my team and me into the courtroom battle with your prayers, support, and this tangible evidence of your ever-present encouragement! Click here to sign Liberty Counsel’s powerful new Amici Book:
Our legal efforts to stop ObamaCare have once again moved into high gear.
I assure you, we will be fully prepared from a legal standpoint. But more importantly, I will be walking into court knowing that many, many Liberty Counsel team members are standing with me – the equivalent of two packed baseball stadiums or more. That’s one measure of why your personal support has such value! I’ll inform you of the date and time of our hearing as soon as the Circuit Court announces the schedule. But please start praying as soon as possible!
THANK YOU for all you do, and have done, as a key member of the Liberty Counsel team.
