Dropping The Ball

Dropping The Ball

Update: Why DACA must end.  For those of you on the Trump Train, I have some disappointing news. It seems that the President, at least, if we’re to believe his chief mouthpieces, has accepted DACA as a fait accompli.

Cathy’s World (Remembering An Iconoclast)

Cathy’s World (Remembering An Iconoclast)

Update: Cathy’s NRO archive.  Some more memories, and photographs, of Cathy from her friends. This month is bookended by two tragic anniversaries, which should serve as reflection points for not only the conservative movement but also the torpid, insular world of contemporary political journalism. While the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart has been discussed...

Super Tuesday News Roundup

Super Tuesday News Roundup

The most notable development leading up to today’s pivotal primaries is, of course, the raft of prominent Donald Trump endorsements, including those of former governor Jan Brewer and immigration stalwart Senator Jeff Sessions. Why the latter decided to endorse Trump rather than his Texas colleague is open to debate, although Mark Krikorian-a Cruz supporter-has...

Jeb’s Last Rodeo?

Jeb’s Last Rodeo?

  Update: Post-caucus analysis by the BBC. As predicted, Jeb is out. Epic failure. Trump wins.  The returns are starting to roll in. Whether or not it’s simply a matter of wishful thinking on the part of Rubio supporters, the rumors of a Bush withdrawal continue to percolate. The fact that he’s been forced to...

Live Free or Die

Live Free or Die

  Update: According to CNN projections Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have emerged victorious from tonight’s primary. Notch one for the notoriously inaccurate polling industry!  We’ll see whether New Hampshire lives up to its state motto later tonight, although the pickings are rather slim in this regard. You can follow the undoubtedly dubious exit polling data...

The Coverup Continues (Fast and Furious)

For those who believed the departure of Eric Holder from the national spotlight would be put an end to troublesome questions about Fast and Furious-and the obstruction of justice and abuse of power its failure unleashed-I have some bad news for you. The trial of several members of a Mexican rip crew for the...

Party Divisions (DHS Funding Fight)

Party Divisions (DHS Funding Fight)

Despite the pressure brought to bear upon House Republicans during the recent DHS funding debate-in spite of the patently unconstitutional actions of this administration-over fifty of them refused to submit to the will of Obama’s factotum in the House of Representatives. Unsurprisingly, there are now rumors of a push by conservative, constitutionalist members to...

Legislative Oversight

Legislative Oversight

The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing earlier this week exploring Barack Obama’s recent executive action-a policy that the fourth estate’s deliberately misleading reportage has made even more confusing than its patently unconstitutional nature would ordinarily warrant. Thankfully, C-SPAN broadcast the proceedings in their entirety. You can watch the full hearing on C-SPAN’s website....

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. First reported by Fox News, republished by the New York Times, the scope of his latest Executive amnesty could encompass anywhere between 3 and 7 million illegal aliens, most of whom would...

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...
