Deciphering Man from Pig
The behavior of the Republicans majority leadership in the House reminds me of the last paragraph in Animal Farm. “Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No questions, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was | Read More »
GOP House Passes Unconstitutional Democrat VAWA Bill
Earlier today, the Republican-controlled House passed the Senate version of the unconstitutional Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

It also expands the law’s reach to give tribal Indian authorities jurisdiction over non-Indians accused of abusing Indian women. The final bill passed with the support of 87 Republicans. Before voting on this bill, the | Read More »

There is no better example of this outrage than the Orwellian Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) of 1994, which is up for reauthorization before the Senate. Democrats want to expand the role of this already ill-conceived bill in a way that will subvert our judicial system | Read More »
Ron Johnson’s Blue-Slipping of Joe Biden’s Victoria Nourse.
Let me tell you a tale of the incompetence of Vice President Joe Biden. Trust me, this one is even better than usual. Once upon a time, back in the days when Joe Biden was a bad Senator instead of a bad Vice President, he had a staffer named Victoria Nourse. Ms. Nourse’s major claim to fame was ‘helping’ to write the (later deemed partially-unconstitutional) | Read More »
