Happy Trails

Happy Trails

All (good) things must come to an end, as the omnipotent, yet enigmatic, interstellar character Q pointed out to the crew of the USS Enterprise during a particularly harrowing flight. As in Gene Roddenberry-created science-fiction epics, so it is in the world of pop cultural podcasting, which is why this month marks the conclusion...

When You’ve Lost Jennifer Rubin…

One of the most remarkable aspects of this administration’s latest lawless Executive decision is the contempt it’s drawn from circles you wouldn’t normally associate with patriotic immigration reform or concern for the desires of working class Americans. Perhaps the most startling example of this welcome phenomenon is the recent spate of columns penned by...

Going Rogue

Going Rogue

The details, however nebulous they may be at the moment, of the President’s imminent evisceration of immigration law have now become public.

Standing Up To POTUS

Standing Up To POTUS

Yesterday’s power grab aimed at the Internet demonstrated yet again that this administration has contempt for the law across the board, not simply on matters of immigration policy. When it will reveal its plans regarding further dismantlement of immigration law is an open question, but the net neutrality gambit demonstrates that Barack Obama has...

Just Say No

Just Say No

The Republican leadership, whomever it happens to be at any given moment, never fails to disappoint Republicans, even those who have become accustomed to watching the GOP work as the eager handmaidens of their ostensible political opponents. That’s why the threats to delay the nomination of Loretta Lynch ring so hollow, and provide no...
