Merrick Garland Should Not Be Involved in the Investigation of President Trump

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.

Brittney Griner is a Prisoner of War

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.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was the Face of Abortion

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.

Trump’s Next Attorney General Should Be New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez

There’s an old proverb of questionable veracity that says that the Chinese word for “crisis” is the same as “opportunity.”  President Trump must have taken that to heart, because he is especially adept at creating such opportunities for himself, the latest of which results from the obviously coerced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who […]
