The Supreme Court does precisely what it’s supposed to do, prompting progressives to claim there’s no difference between work and play, plus other absurdities

Progressive pundits take aim at the Supreme Court for ruling that a workplace safety law actually applies to the workplace, claiming there is no distinction between the two.  Others believe the Court has exceeded its power by ensuring agencies operate within the bounds of their legal mandate.  Still others blame Republicans in general and demand… Continue reading The Supreme Court does precisely what it’s supposed to do, prompting progressives to claim there’s no difference between work and play, plus other absurdities

The clueless Supreme Court and the progressive pundits who don’t care about the rule of law

In a shocking display, the progressive justices on the Supreme Court have no idea what vaccines actually do, how many children are affected, and current hospitalizations.  Even worse, they and progressive pundits are even less interested in the rule of law vital to a functioning democracy. Last week, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on… Continue reading The clueless Supreme Court and the progressive pundits who don’t care about the rule of law

One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?

Democrats and the mainstream media repeatedly warn that democracy itself is in peril, under attacks not seen since the Civil War, while simultaneously pushing to demolish key pillars of our system of government included but not limited to the filibuster, the Electoral College, and the composition of the Supreme Court.  It’s almost like democracy means… Continue reading One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?

In 2022, let the free market and elected legislatures take the lead in addressing the pandemic

We must reject the rampant exercise of never before used authority in the name of public safety.  The executive doesn’t have the power to mandate whatever it wants, much less arrest and imprison people for failing to comply with their latest whims.  It’s time to demand legislatures return to voting on any new executive authority… Continue reading In 2022, let the free market and elected legislatures take the lead in addressing the pandemic

The FBI raids a journalist’s home before dawn and no one seems to care

Who approved the warrant for 10 FBI agents and a battering ram in search of information regarding a supposedly pilfered diary that the journalists themselves brought to the attention of law enforcement a year ago?  Do you think the FBI would be conducting pre-dawn raids if your diary was stolen? Before dawn on Saturday morning,… Continue reading The FBI raids a journalist’s home before dawn and no one seems to care

Mandates, passports, restaurant requirements, and more: Making life “extremely” difficult for the unvaccinated

As government, universities, and private employers implement vaccine mandates and some municipalities require vaccines for entry to restaurants and gyms, it’s worth considering the applicable legal standards and how this would actually work in practice when some two thirds of minority groups will no longer be allowed to eat out.  Is this the America you… Continue reading Mandates, passports, restaurant requirements, and more: Making life “extremely” difficult for the unvaccinated

NCAA: The Supreme Court deals a blow to their slave labor policy, but how was it allowed to exist in the first place?

For an organization that claims to be woke and not-for-profit, the NCAA has a lot of explaining to do.  Coaches and executives make millions, players make nothing and can’t even control the usage of their own image.  We’re told it’s for their own good, but slaveholders in the antebellum south said much the same thing… Continue reading NCAA: The Supreme Court deals a blow to their slave labor policy, but how was it allowed to exist in the first place?

Whatever happened to democratic norms? Free speech, the filibuster, nine Supreme Court Justices, and fifty states, suddenly aren’t norms?

Freedom of speech, a norm since 1791.  Filibusters since 1837.  Nine Justices on the Supreme Court since 1869.  50 states since 1959.  All are currently on the chopping block.  It’s almost enough to make you think the raging against Donald Trump breaking political norms was just hard-nosed politics and ginned up outrage. Less than two… Continue reading Whatever happened to democratic norms? Free speech, the filibuster, nine Supreme Court Justices, and fifty states, suddenly aren’t norms?

Executive orders are the real looming Constitutional Crisis

Joe Biden breaks Donald Trump's first week record with 22 executive orders, one of which has already been halted by the courts.  The increasing scope of executive orders is almost certain to provoke an honest-to-goodness crisis in the not too distant future, and yet next to no one is talking about the damage waiting to… Continue reading Executive orders are the real looming Constitutional Crisis

Five things we should have known before the election

From a vaccine to Hunter Biden with the Supreme Court in between, the world has changed in less than two months, what did the media know and when did they know it? It’s only been six weeks since the election, and yet new revelations have shifted the terms of the debate around some important topics. … Continue reading Five things we should have known before the election
