    The Roberts Court: Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

    The Roberts Court: Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

    For all the liberal bloviating about the new direction of SCOTUS under CJ Roberts, today’s opinion in King v. Burwell demonstrates that essentially, nothing has changed. The court is still forced into feckless pragmatism whenever a conservative principle is at stake, but is perfectly willing to venture beyond the expressed will of Congress in order to advance liberal agenda items on their own initiative. Today’s decision, | Read More »

    Scott Walker Extends the Middle Finger to the Enemies of America

    Scott Walker Extends the Middle Finger to the Enemies of America

    I understand that Scott Walker is not a perfect Presidential candidate. I understand that his initial foray into dealing with the national press was less than ideal and I haven’t been crazy about his blatant pandering on immigration. I also understand that he lacks the rhetorical flair and stage appeal of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%. BUT. And this is a big | Read More »

    You Could Be Next: Federal Government Attempts to Intimidate Reason.com Over Internet Comments

    I’ve been writing about abuse of power by police and prosecutors for the last several months with no small amount of frustration. By and large I often get the idea that people view these as abstract concepts that are irrelevant to them and moreover that I am taking the side of criminals. After all, many conservatives reason to themselves, if you just obey the law, | Read More »

    A Big Day for Liberty at SCOTUS

    A Big Day for Liberty at SCOTUS

    While most conservatives are disappointed today that the Supreme Court did not issue decisions on SSM or King v. Burwell, today’s Supreme Court opinions were nonetheless monumental and, for proponents of liberty, were almost unqualified wins. The Court issued four opinions, three of which will all serve as meaningful checks against abuses of government authority. The first of these, Kingsley v. Hendrickson, dealt with the standard an | Read More »

    Rachel Dolezal and the End of Reality

    Rachel Dolezal and the End of Reality

    Now that the UK’s Daily Mail has revealed that fake black person Rachel Dolezal was once in a sex tape allegedly taken against her will, we can hope that global coverage of the increasingly bizarre Dolezal freak show has reached its Zenith. And yet, something about this story compels us collectively to continue to examine it from every angle, to poke at its scars, and | Read More »

    Obama Gets Back to Community Organizing

    Obama Gets Back to Community Organizing

    The Obama administration has had a lot of terrible ideas over the years, many of which have demonstrated that he simply does not believe in capitalism or the free market as a philosophical matter. The latest of these ideas, which has been largely flying under the radar, is a proposed HUD regulation that would – no joke – involve the Federal Government in the makeup | Read More »

    Marco Rubio, Commoner

    Marco Rubio, Commoner

    Fresh off their shocking revelation that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% drives himself around like some peasant, getting speeding tickets in the process, the NYT is back at it again. The latest broadside against Rubio reveals – shockingly – that Rubio has struggled to pay his bills just like some regular old, non-1%er American: WEST MIAMI, Fla. — For years, Senator [mc_name | Read More »

    Breaking: Marco Rubio Does Not Abuse his Influence

    Breaking: Marco Rubio Does Not Abuse his Influence

    In the process of writing a shamefully petty hit piece on Marco Rubio, the New York Times has actually done Marco Rubio a great service, by painting him in a great light especially as compared to Hillary Clinton. You see, in the course of breathlessly reporting that Marco Rubio has had 4 traffic tickets over the last 18 years, the NYT inadvertently revealed at least | Read More »

    Vermont Discovers the Joys of Federalism

    Vermont Discovers the Joys of Federalism

    It’s pretty safe to say that Vermont is the most hippie-infested state in the union. Thanks to some idiomatic political history, Vermont has a higher percentage of voters who are too far left for even the Democratic Party than anywhere else in the country – as evidenced by the fact that Vermont has an avowed Socialist elected as one of their two Senators, and they | Read More »

    Not Breaking News: Democrats Set to Nominate Unlikable Harpy

    Not Breaking News: Democrats Set to Nominate Unlikable Harpy

    Here is a great and immutable truth – the more Americans are exposed to Hillary Clinton, the less they like her. During the latter half of Bill Clinton’s presidency, she was perhaps the only first lady in American history who had higher unfavorability ratings than favorability ratings. Since then she has basically played seatwarmer for a number of relatively high profile jobs without actually doing | Read More »

    The American Public: You Know, Hillary is Pretty Much a Liar and We’re Okay with That

    The American Public: You Know, Hillary is Pretty Much a Liar and We're Okay with That

    I found an interesting fact nestled amongst the data contained in this latest Q-Poll. Many people are focusing on the fact that it shows a 5-way tie for the GOP nomination at this point, or the fact that Hillary is easily beating everyone except Rubio and Paul in head-to-head matchups. This is all interesting, but it is far too early in the process to draw | Read More »

    Fifth Circuit Upholds Injunction Against Obama’s Executive Amnesty

    Fifth Circuit Upholds Injunction Against Obama's Executive Amnesty

    A three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit today issued a split decision upholding the Texas judge’s injunction preventing Obama’s executive amnesty program from moving forward. The opinion itself upheld the injunction on fairly arcane (to non-lawyers) legal and procedural grounds; i.e., it did not decide or offer an opinion as to whether the Obama Administrations program was likely unlawful or not. Rather, it invalidated the | Read More »

    Transparency, Clinton Style

    Transparency, Clinton Style

    The Barack Obama administration has, by all accounts, been a travesty when it comes to transparency – a point on which both liberal and conservative watchdog groups agree. At least, however, when Obama assumed office, people had reason to believe that he might possibly have meant it when he promised with a straight face that he would lead the “most transparent administration ever.” Imagine, then, | Read More »

    The Emma Sulkowicz Generation

    The Emma Sulkowicz Generation

    Columbia University recently held its commencement ceremonies, which gives us all another reason to talk about one of the worst people in America, Emma Sulkowicz. For those who are unfamiliar with this particular sordid tale, Emma Sulkowicz was a Columbia university student who claimed that she was brutally raped by a friend named Paul Nungesser. There was only one one problem with Sulkowicz’s tale – it | Read More »
