Rep. Gutierrez (D) to Obama: Ignore Congress for Immigration Reform
It is well-known that President Obama has no issue with using executive orders to get his way when Congress won’t do his bidding. Earlier this year, he famously said that he had “a pen and a phone” for when action in the legislative branch stalls or dies altogether. Unsurprisingly, there are members of his own party in Congress who would love for Obama to disregard their | Read More »
BREAKING: A Good Day For The Rule of Law
It is not the job of the court system to tell us what is right, or just; to make policy for us or govern our lives. But it is the job of the court system to police the basic rules of the road that keep our various elected officials, administrative agencies and lower courts from exceeding the powers the People, in the Constitution and laws, | Read More »

Barack, the Insult Comic President
No President is perfect. I accept it as a fact of human nature that every President will make mistakes. And I further accept that all Presidents will pursue policies that a substantial part of the country disagrees with, and I operate under the assumption that when Democrat Presidents are in office, more often than not I’m going to disagree with their policy (and probably personnel) | Read More »
Will There Be a Consequence?
It was the Republicans in Washington and their allies in Mississippi who distributed fliers to Democrats in Mississippi calling conservatives racists, klansmen, Nazis, etc. It was a concerted effort by the GOP to beat their own base at any cost. And here’s the kicker — there will be no consequence if they have their way. That begs the question of whether there should be. Should | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Supreme Court lets the government side against Aereo innovation
So the Aereo case went to the Supreme Court, and it’s official: Aereo lost, and may be killed as the result of government. Naturally I agree with the three justice minority of Antonin Scalia, Sam Alito, and Clarence Thomas. Clarence Thomas is the kind of guy that, if he rules against what I thought was right, I’ll doublecheck to see if I was wrong. And he voted with Scalia.
Turns out there’s some real gold in the dissent, too. Justice Scalia could write Tech at Night.

Nobody Expected The Iraq Disintegration. Its Chief Weapon Was Surprise!
Revealing Politics released a new video today that highlights in the starkest possible way the failure of the President’s policies, aims, objectives, and understanding with regard the Middle East and to America’s military needs and national interests overall. The video (and its subjects) speaks for itself. Devastating. .
John Kerry ignored by everyone as Iraq dissolves
Three things have happened in the past weeks that are making it obvious that the nation that has been Iraq since 1919 will soon cease to exist. First, the Turks have spoken in an approving way of the idea of an independent Kurdistan inside of what is now Iraq and has moved to address the issues that have fueled a long running Kurdish insurgency in | Read More »

An Almost High School Dropout
As a parent, when I think of school choice, I naturally think of how it applies to my children. Recently, however, I came across the news that the South Carolina Senate Education Committee passed a bill allowing students to attend public school in another district if they desire. Immediately I was taken back to my own public school experience and the fact that having a choice | Read More »
Employees Behind Failed Cover Oregon Website Getting Nice Bonuses
My fellow Contributor Moe Lane has spent a lot of time covering the absolute fiasco that is Oregon’s Obamacare Exchange. Here’s one more story for the long list of problems: in yet another case of “so tone deaf it has to involve government”, the employees responsible for the Cover Oregon website, unarguably the worst among all state exchanges and so bad that the state has | Read More »
IRS Commissioner Koskinen – The Obama Administration’s Chicago Politics Consigliere
Congressman Paul Ryan spoke for most of America when he pointblank told IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, “I don’t believe you.” Commissioner Koskinen has been defensive, defiant, dismissive, and what even Democrats are calling “arrogant” in his blind defense of the IRS targeting of conservative Americans. While constantly contradicting himself in his testimony on Capitol Hill about Lois Lerner’s “lost” emails, Commissioner Koskinen has been entirely | Read More »
8 Ways the New York Times Misled You about Gov. Scott Walker
Last week, the New York Times published both an editorial board piece and a news report detailing allegations that Gov. Scott Walker and his allies violated campaign finance laws during the Wisconsin recall elections. While the paper prides itself on its national audience and standing as a newspaper of record, it miserably failed to present the facts in a clear, lucid fashion. By burying key | Read More »
