Texas v. United States (The Supremes Weigh In)

Texas v. United States (The Supremes Weigh In)

As we pointed out last week, the Supreme Court has decided to weigh the merits of the President’s executive actions on immigration.

The Veil Slips (Anti-Fascist Fascism)

The Veil Slips (Anti-Fascist Fascism)

It’s difficult to articulate the precise feeling I have after viewing the international media’s coverage of the anti-rape, anti-jihadist demonstrations which took place in Germany this weekend. Rage, disgust, alienation, and disbelief all fail to capture the degree of revulsion I felt watching the BBC, CNN and other purveyors of disinformation cover the brave...

Guns Blazing

Guns Blazing

This administration’s strange means of implementing legislation, i.e. enacting it through administrative edicts which bypass the opposition of Congress, is not limited to immigration matters. The recent rules enacted by Barack Obama regarding gun sales are merely an extension of the distinctly unilateral policymaking which has been a hallmark of his presidency. Although, as...

Jihad On The March

Jihad On The March

More details about the presumed identity of the suspect in yesterday’s shootings in Parliament Hill are slowly trickling in. Notwithstanding the absurdist headline, I would recommend reading national security reporter Colin Freeze’s account in The Globe and Mail.

Meet The New Boss

Meet The New Boss

Here’s the roll call vote confirming Jeh Johnson as the next Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. There are a number of interesting inferences that can be made from the “nay” side of the ledger, which constituted a little over a third of the Republican Conference. While some of the votes  don’t require...

Kill The Bill

Kill The Bill

  Far be it from me to praise National Review-especially the feckless leadership of its current editor-in-chief-but when it’s right, it’s right. And in this case, NR is absolutely correct. John Boehner-never a profile in courage-needs to be reminded why he is the Speaker of the House. Here’s a clue: it’s not to fulfill...

Senatorial Privilege

Senatorial Privilege

The kabuki theater which constitutes the U.S. Senate’s “debate” over the Gang of Eight calamity begins in earnest this week. The latest Republican to abandon any pretense of defending the interests of her constituents is Kelly Ayotte. Bolstered by the seemingly inexhaustible funds of the open borders lobby, she’s now fully embraced the concept...
