Watching politicians give speeches, such as Obama’s State of the Union address, is an occupational hazard when you work at a think tank. Which is why, in the past, I’ve heartily recommended the State-of-the-Union Bingo game developed by Americans for Tax Reform. But I was in New York City for a television program about the […]

While these are (or should be) of interest to all of us, they are targeted a bit more than we usually do to our female readers. I’ve felt for a while that we have been neglecting them, partly my fault and partly I just haven’t seen all that much. But I’ll try to do better, not […]

The war against the Constitution is becoming so intense, it’s getting harder and harder to keep up. Last week, it was the freedoms of speech and religion that were under assault from politicians, the media, and even the Pope. This week, it’s the right to privacy, or to be more specific, the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unreasonable search and seizure. It was just yesterday that I wrote about the recent Washingon Post/ABC News poll showing that nearly 7 out of 10 Americans favor surrendering the right to privacy to the government in order to be safe from terrorism. Now we receive word of a new radar technology that makes it possible for law enforcement to look inside your home without entering it. According to a report by USA Today’s Brad Heath, at least 50 U.S. law enforcement agencies have secretly equipped their officers with radar devices that allow them to effectively peer through the walls of homes to see whether anyone is inside, a practice that raises serious concerns about the power of government to conduct surveillance operations. These agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Marshalls Service, began deploying the radar systems more than two years ago with little […]

If it hadn’t been captured on video, I’d never believe that Rachel Maddow’s guest had talked about President Obama’s “rose-colored glasses.” Here’s that video: The person Ms. Maddow was interviewing wasn’t Ted Cruz or Rand Paul. She interviewed Richard Engel, NBC’s “chief foreign affairs correspondent.” Here’s what Engel said: “It seems that the rose-colored glasses […]

750 years ago something unique happened, Simon de Montfort (acting in King Henry III’s name, the King was his captive at the time) called a parliament. For the first time (other than for taxation purposes), he summoned what has come to be called “The Commons” citizens (not knights) of the towns and cities of England. […]

The website GovTrack.us is an excellent resource to see how they voted, and they just came out with a Report Card for 2014. It’s interesting how they graded Republican members of the House on leadership. It’s not about who is in a leadership post or who is a committee chairman.Read More

It was only yesterday that I wrote about the cowards in the Republican party, and how they were willing to use recent terrorist activity as an excuse to surrender in the war with Obama and his unconstitutional executive amnesty. Sadly, it appears that cowardice is a contagious condition reaching epidemic proportions. Following the recent terrorist attacks in France, an overwhelming majority of Americans have indicated in a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll a frightening willingness to surrender their privacy rights to the federal government in exchange for a little safety. By a margin of nearly two to one, 63% of Americans stated they would give up their personal privacy rights in order to help battle terrorism. 32% of respondents haven’t been struck by the epidemic as of yet. This is a six percentage point increase from the 57% last year, when Edward Snowden informed us that the National Security Agency was collecting massive amounts of data on everyday Americans without a warrant or probable cause. Which begs the question: if the government is already violating our constitutional rights, how far do you think the government will go if we give them permission to do so? Perhaps one of the most […]

The most compelling graph I’ve ever seen was put together by Andrew Coulson, one of my colleagues at the Cato Institute. It shows that there’s been a huge increase in the size and cost of the government education bureaucracy in recent decades, but that student performance has been stagnant. But if I had to pick […]
