Update: Cuccinelli To Webcast Briefing On Health Care Lawsuit June 16

It's the talk of the nation and certainly has provided motivation for viscous attacks by left-wing bloggers and politicians, but it is right and just — the law suit brought by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli against the freedom crushing government run health insurance plan concocted and rammed through by President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Because the mainstream media and left wing groups have attempted to demonize the law suit, the attorney general smartly is going around them. So, here's a reminder thatthis Wednesday, June 16, at 8:00 p.m., Attorney General Cuccinelli will host a Webcast town hall meeting to discuss the facts of the case, the constitutional issues involved and the legal process. He also will take questions from the online audience.

Click here to sign up for this free event, that promises to be very informative as well.

We urge you to take part in this Webcast. As the national debate over government-run health care continues, the mainstream media and statists who support it continue to spoon feed their deception to the public over the airwaves, in newspapers and on the Internet, especially throught political party manipulated bloggers. Knowing the truth is essential as you discuss this important topic with your friends, co-workers and fellow church members.

Too many of our fellow Virginians do not know the actual content of our constitution or what it means. You must be equipped with the facts and arguments to be able to counter the pro-government run health insurance crowd.

We also hope you will take the time to read the attorney general's brief on the case (you can bet most of those raising their hackles about it haven't) by clicking here. It summarizes the constitutional law and historical arguments that are the foundation of the commonwealth's case against the Obama administration.

As Americans get ready for summer vacation and are fixated on the environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, decisions will be made in the coming weeks and months that will affect the very foundations of our our way of life. We highly encourage you to join the Mr. Cuccinelli Wednesday night on the Webcast to learn more about this incredibly important case.

Annotations & Elucidations Cultural Conservatism's Comeback (Or Was It Ever Really Dead?)

Who said cultural conservatism is dead? In Virginia last week, there was bipartisan support to end taxpayer funding of elective abortion and within the last 24 hours two major blows for traditional values — and constitutional law — occurred. Yesterday, the Oklahoma Senate joined with the House there in a bipartisan vote to override Democrat Governor Brad Henry's veto of an informed consent bill which would requires women seeking abortions to see an ultrasound of her baby and receive certain information, not terribly different than a bill we have advocated for in the General Assembly the last several years. (There is always hope!) Then, earlier today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a memorial Cross on federal land in the Mojave Desert can stay, reversing a lower court ruling.

But was cultural conservatism dead? Hard to believe that when each state that has voted on a Marriage Amendment has passed it. The truth is that there are certain truths in life and embedded in the constitution. Only when they are purposefully misinterpreted and laws misapplied to achieve agenda goals are they ever defeated. But defeat is not death. Values endure. We've seen that in the last 24 hours.
