  • Across America, breaking the law often means there are no consequences anymore: As our political class gets more criminal, we’re seeing a shift in values that can only have terrible outcomes for ordinary Americans

    Let’s begin with the conclusion so as not to keep anyone waiting: Punishment under the law is no longer acceptable in a “woke” society. One may still be subjected to legal prosecution if the crime threatens the Left, as happened to Donald Trump, Carter Paige, and Michael Flynn. “Truth,” however, has nothing to do with such prosecutions of convenience, although punishment is highly acceptable under informal social norms. So, we have “cancel culture” that can ruin a person’s life in an afternoon, moving right along until the victim enters his eternal rest.Rejecting legal punishment except in political cases can be...

    In recent days, the Trump campaign has touted a number of affidavits collected from poll workers in Michigan that they say proves the existence of widespread irregularities in the Michigan vote counting process, and which they plan to attach as an exhibit to an expected lawsuit that will challenge the certification of the vote in Michigan.... By my count, the 234 pages contain affidavits from 101 individuals. The majority of them appear to be handwritten impressions of the counting process. Here, by my count, is a complete list of actual allegations that raise the potential of voter fraud from these...
  • Caravan arrives, Honduran flags flying, middle fingers flashing

    After a big buildup, the migrant caravan full of Central America's finest has finally arrived, and as screengrabs from local television broadcasts show, they gave America the bird. Seriously. Buried in a News 8 broadcast from San Diego was footage of illegal migrants and their supporters on the U.S. side breaching the U.S. fence on the border, waving a big Honduran flag, victory-style, and whipping out a big middle finger at America. In times past, arriving immigrants used to kiss the earth. Today, they wave the middle finger at us. Look at these photos, both from News 8 and the...

    This past week’s D.C. Court of Appeals panel ruling that customers in the 36 states that didn’t establish their own exchange and use instead cannot be given premium tax credits was assailed by the program’s backers as “flagrant judicial activism.” Presidential Press Secretary Josh Earnest promised that “this insupportable ruling will be ignored. For the Court to insist upon a literal reading of the statute at this late date would unduly hamper the President’s scope of action. He cannot and will not abide having his hands tied by this judicial interference.” At issue is explicit statutory language in the...
  • 519 Examples of Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, & Cronyism

    Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states...

    A Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) has criticised the US government for ignoring guidelines surrounding the National Security Agency's (NSA) Prism programme for domestic surveillance of web users. FISC set out suggested regulations for the Prism programme, which spied on citizens' emails and web use for around 10 years before being shut down in 2011... "NSA exceeded the scope of authorised acquisition continuously during the more than [redacted] years of acquisition under these orders," wrote Judge Bates in a 117 page document. He added that guidelines stated that the government should only gather data on those for whom there was...

    In the wake of an admission by an IRS official that conservative groups had been targeted for additional scrutiny, Rep. Michael Turner will introduce legislation Monday that would increase the penalty for singling out ideological organizations —including the possibility of jail time. Turner, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said news about the IRS is an example of abuse of government power. “Across the country, people are appalled to learn the IRS targeted people because of their political beliefs,” the Ohio Republican told POLITICO. “These are issues of basic rights of expression.” He added, “This is...

    The Justice Department is asking Internet companies to keep records on the Web-surfing activities of their customers to aid law enforcement, and may propose legislation to force them to do so. The director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Robert S. Mueller III, and Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales held a meeting in Washington last Friday where they offered a general proposal on record-keeping to a group of senior executives from Internet companies, said Brian Roehrkasse, a spokesman for the department. The meeting included representatives from America Online, Microsoft, Google, Verizon and Comcast.... An executive of one Internet provider that...

    America has always been a country built of many immigrant peoples, who bring with them richness in cultures and diversity from all areas of the world. Our nation has consistently welcomed immigrants, refugees, and exiles fleeing injustice and oppression and seeking liberty and the opportunity to achieve a full life. They have found work, built homes and lives, and provided security for themselves and their families. During the past 20 years, about 23 million newcomers have arrived in our nation, surpassing the “first great wave” of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in terms of the numbers of immigrants...

    Senators Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and Larry Craig (R-ID) are trying to sneak through their AgJOBS amnesty/"guestworker" bill (S. 1645) as an amendment (S. Amdt 3396) to the currently pending National Defense Authorization Act (S. 2400). The disastrous AgJOBS bill could grant amnesty to as many as three million illegal aliens in the U.S. and bring in hundreds of thousands of new immigrant workers. A vote on the Senate floor could come this week -- possibly tomorrow -- and Sens. Kennedy and Craig have every intention of attaching their amnesty bill to every piece of legislation on the Senate floor between...

    Bush promotes law breaking Posted: January 30, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 Common sense says if you tell people they will have a better shot at attaining legal status as Americans if they just come to this country to work for a while, more people will enter the country illegally. Common sense has now been borne out by hard statistical facts provided by the Border Patrol. In the month since President Bush floated his non-amnesty amnesty program, the number of immigrants caught attempting to enter the country illegally at the biggest border crossing checkpoint is up 15 percent....
