Russia’s Putin beyond Constitutional Government: The Case of Aleksei Navalny

With a judge handing down a five-year suspended prison sentence, a fine of 500,000 rubles (about $8,400), and a ban on participating in the upcoming presidential election in 2017, Aleksei Navalny could feel just how power can be wielded by high government officials, including even presidents—power ultimately backed up by stern men with guns with the legal right to use lethal force. This, I submit, is what government comes down to—it’s bottom line.
The true look of a government’s power. (Sergei Brovko/Reuters)

Israel Legalizes Illegal Settlements on Palestinian Land: On the Toll on the Rule of Law

Israel’s legislature passed a law on February 6, 2017 retroactively legalizing Jewish settlements on privately owned Palestinian land. Incredibly, the state’s own attorney general said he would not defend the new law in court because he had determined the law to unconstitutional and in violation of international law. Anat Ben Nun of an anti-settlement group said the law was “deteriorating Israel’s democracy, making stealing an official policy.”[1]Specifically, the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, including those offered financial compensation for the “long term use of their land” but without being able to reclaim their property under the new law, “are not Israeli citizens and cannot vote for candidates for Israel’s Parliament, or Kenesset.”[2]I submit nevertheless that the underlying casualty in this case is the rule of law itself.

Our Lost Constitution – Can it be found?

Even though I probably don’t know all I should about the Constitution of the United States, thanks to a new book by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) — lifetime 99% conservative ranking at Heritage Action — I know a lot more than I used to. After reading Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America’s Founding Document, I can say with certainty that I have gained a better understanding about how awesome this document truly is, and how it holds the only hope we have in America to see the damage done by decades of progressive politics reversed. No, that’s not it. It’s the only chance she has to survive. Using his love and appreciation of the Constitution, Senator Lee shares from his heart as he successfully gives the reader an accurate documentation of the rise and fall of six of the founding document’s most vital and indispensable provisions. While there are many books written about the Constitution, previous efforts tended to be “professorial,” boring the reader with information that makes you feel like you’re sitting in a college classroom preparing for a final exam. That’s not the case with this book. One of the primary themes of Senator Lee’s book […]
