IRS Commissioner: cutting our budget means civilization is doomed


Bad news. The IRS says it may have to furlough workers because it doesn’t have enough money to operate. The IRS is considering its own temporary shutdown due to recent ...

There They Go Again

With metronomic precision each year the national press corps begins running columns by “religion scholars” who wish you to know that Jesus Christ is a fictional character. Mind you, no newspaper of note in the world is brave enough to run a similar story about the Prophet Mohammed. The latest comes from a “lecturer in religious studies” from Australia named Raphael Lataster. The Washington Post | Read More »

Barack Obama not yet understanding that he needs to be irrelevant to 2016.

This should be fascinating to watch: “In recent weeks, Democratic operatives have begun to voice concerns that the 2014 midterms made plain the limits of an approach that failed to reach beyond minority groups or those who are reflexively liberal. And yet what should come next is not yet totally clear.” Largely because it’s essentially futile.  The Democrats will not have control over their message in 2016, | Read More »

How to Lose a Cyberwar with North Korea

In the past twenty-four hours, United States intelligence officials definitively confirmed that the recent cyberattacks against Sony Pictures Studios and the explicit threats to terrorize movie theaters showing its film, “The Interview,” are indeed the work of North Korean state actors.  Sony, of course, canceled the global release of “The Interview,” which threatens to ex ante effectuate some of the most outright perverse incentives in geopolitics that | Read More »

I Love Santa

What is this idea that Santa Claus somehow detracts from celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ? I grew up in a Christian household that loved Santa and, as pretty much anyone who knows me or follows me on Twitter can attest, I still really like Jesus. Believing in Santa Claus and loving Jesus are hardly mutually exclusive.

America’s Desperate Need for Prison Reform

It is difficult for a variety of reasons to get politicians to focus on this issue, for fear of being labeled “soft on crime,” but right now in America there is a significant amount of rot that permeates virtually every aspect of our criminal justice system and that desperately needs to be addressed. Kevin D. Williamson has a great article in NRO today about the | Read More »

Engaging Cuba Is the Right Move

For too long the United States’ only policy toward Cuba consisted of sanctions and non-engagement. Engaging Cuba is the right thing to do. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama is doing it the wrong way. When Cuba fell to communist control, the United States began covert operations to destabilize the regime and aid anti-communists seeking to overthrow their hardline overlords. For the most part, CIA-backed efforts to | Read More »

The Empire Strikes Back: Jeff Sessions out as Budget Committee Chair

Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions is out as chair of the Senate Budget Committee. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is giving up his bid to become the next Budget Committee chairman — deferring to Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and eliminating the only competitive chairmanship battle in the incoming GOP Senate majority. Sessions has been the panel’s top Republican for the past four years but Enzi technically retains seniority over the | Read More »

Reminder to the Uninsured: Obamacare Fines are Coming

An important Obamacare deadline is approaching. People who don’t have health insurance have until February 15, 2015, to purchase a plan or they will face a hefty penalty doled out by the IRS in 2016, which will be either $325 per adult or 2% of a family’s income, depending on which is higher for an individual or family. The Hill notes that insurance companies are trying to remind | Read More »
