When I was in law school, this would have been in the early 2000s, we were compelled to take a standard core curriculum the first year, but in the second and third years we were given great latitude in the courses in which we enrolled. The school’s official position was that we should take a […]
Who is better at their job than White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre? I mean it. Mock her if you must, but the joke’s on you. You wish you were as good at your craft as she is at hers! The woman is a generational talent! Nobody, and I mean nobody excels at their job […]
If there’s a more comprehensively corrupt industry than the education industry, it has not yet revealed itself. That’s wise. The education industry does not like competition. At least la cosa nostra makes no pretensions about its nefarious operations. But the education industry shrouds itself with a saintly aura of beneficence and public good, which obscures […]
The Attorney General is a member of the President’s Cabinet, and in that role, he is the principal advisor to the President on all legal matters. He is not just a member of the Administration, he is the President’s own attorney for all things government. His actions are, by constitutional authority and definition, those of the President. So when Attorney General Garland acknowledged that he personally authorized the warrant against President Trump, he was admitting that the Biden Administration ordered the raid of a political rival.
That should never happen in this country.
The United States, for all of its faults, is not a banana republic. Losing an election should never place one at risk of the victor’s political and legal power. Whether or not there was good reason to approve the warrant to raid President Trump’s home, it should not have been done by the Biden Administration, but rather a special prosecutor approved by Congress (considering that the Democrats control both houses of Congress, that should not have been difficult for the President to achieve), or a specially appointed congressional subcommittee, or failing that, appointed by the Supreme Court, in order to avoid the appearance of impropriety, if not actual political prejudice.
Whatever you think about her politics, and I don’t think much of them, there can be no serious doubt that Brittney Griner is a political prisoner of a war. She has been captured by an enemy regime, against whom we are engaged in a war, and as a consequence of that war and our involvement, she is being held hostage in order to be used as leverage against American interests.
I’ve always believed it important for conservatives to have liberal friends, both because of the imperative to constantly challenge one’s own assumptions, and, as this past week reminded us, because liberals are great to have around for entertainment, especially when things do not go their way. If only our friends on the Left knew of […]
Yesterday’s unprecedented chaos in Washington, D.C., was one of the darkest moments in our history. Here are some of my thoughts on it: 1) I remember watching President Trump take a dump on the first presidential debate a few months ago and thinking that my disgust with a politician would never be exceeded. That was […]
Conservatives should generally support state and local sovereignty, but when states and cities can’t control violent mobs, that’s not an exercise of sovereignty, and the federal government should step in to protect American citizens and property. The following is a transcript of the above video: Hey guys, hope you’re doing well. I just want to […]
just as I’m not going to celebrate her death, I’m also not going to celebrate Ginsburg’s life, and join in this rather bizarre elevation of her to sainthood across the political and social spectrum. Few jurists have been more wrong, more often, and more loudly, than Ginsburg, and with more horrible, real-world consequences. And worse, this cannot be written off as simply a failure of judgment, when it’s quite clearly a failure of values.
Does the stock market reflect a strong economy, or are the records highs we’re seeing a result of government simply pumping more and more money into the system? What follows is a transcript of the above-video: Hey guys, Jordan here. Good morning. I just want to talk to you real quick about what’s happening in […]
