Memo to Supreme Court: Grant Cert in the Weyerhaeuser Case!

Posted: December 13, 2017 at 9:15 am   /   Friends

(John Hinderaker) The government we live under does not resemble the one that is described in the Constitution. The principal reason for this is the power of federal regulatory agencies, which has grown explosively and is virtually unrestrained by Congress, the courts or even the president, who nominally controls the executive branch. The extra-constitutional administrative […]

Strzok on prospect of a Trump presidency: “We can’t take that risk”

Posted: December 13, 2017 at 8:30 am   /   Friends

(Paul Mirengoff) Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller reports on what might prove to be the most revealing text message exchange between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, both of the FBI. On August 25, 2016, Strzok texted Page: I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s […]

(Scott Johnson) Alberto Nisman was about to present the findings of his investigation of the cover-up of Iranian responsibility for the 1994 bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish community center when he died in January 2015 under mysterious circumstances. The bombing was an act of mass murder; it killed 85 people. Was Nisman himself murdered […]

The Strange Death of Europe

Posted: December 13, 2017 at 7:16 am   /   Friends

(Scott Johnson) I’ve been pointing to Time’s list of the top 10 non-fiction books of 2017. While conceding I haven’t read any of them, I have noted that any such list on which Hillary Clinton and Ta-Nehisi Coates place in numbers 1 and 2 is some kind of a joke. That’s what Time’s list is. […]

Ms. Smith goes to Washington

Posted: December 13, 2017 at 5:46 am   /   Friends

(Scott Johnson) Minnesota Governor Dayton will announce this morning that he has chosen Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith to succeed Al Franken in the Senate upon Franken’s resignation. Franken has stated his intention to resign but left the timing vague. Once Dayton makes his announcement this morning I trust that Franken’s departure will follow in due […]

Beyond Immigration

Posted: December 13, 2017 at 2:00 am   /   Friends

(Steven Hayward) I’m for ending chain-immigration as well as having a more robust general immigration policy, but it is not clear that the problem of radical jihadism, as demonstrated once again by the bomber in New York yesterday, is mostly attributable to lax current immigration practice. The real problem is more with home-grown radicalization, which […]

Report: White House trying to sneak LGBT activist through committee

Posted: December 12, 2017 at 9:16 pm   /   Friends

(Paul Mirengoff) Earlier today, I reported on President Trump’s re-nomination of Chai Feldblum as EEOC commissioner. Feldblum is an LGBT activist and the architect of the Obama administration’s radical LGBT agenda, including its policy mandating that transgender individuals can use the restroom of their choice. She believes that in almost all cases where the sexual […]

Jones Wins: Al Franken Hardest Hit

Posted: December 12, 2017 at 8:45 pm   /   Friends

(Steven Hayward) I might as well get into the “hot take” game. Democrats and their media echo chamber will openly celebrate Doug Jones’s narrow win in Alabama, but inside I’ll bet they are actually disappointed. There is little chance they can hold this seat in 2020 (unless Republicans nominate Roy Moore again). Meanwhile, Jones deprives […]
