It’s Time to Rein in Regulators

I've written a book chapter and a lot of columns over the years on the Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act ---- a profoundly simple, powerful bill that would require regulators and bureaucrats to get their most expensive rules approved by Congress before they could take effect ---- and we've never been closer to seeing it signed into law.

Cleaning up after ‘Third Term’ Obama

It's clear President Obama ---- despite the boos from Flyover Country -- doesn't plan to get off the national stage any time soon.

For Millions, Christmas Goes On Through January

Christmas Day has passed us by. This much is - hopefully - common knowledge.

Precap of News Certain to Occur in 2017

Thanks to Donald Trump and the Chicago Cubs my outlandish predictions for 2016 were eclipsed by, of all things, reality. Worse, the fine art of fake news was commandeered by demons who used it for social and political gain––something my colleagues and I would never have dreamed possible.

Another Job Americans Won’t Do: Work on a Cruise Ship

Cruise ship travel continues to gain in popularity as passenger demand can barely keep up with fleet additions. The global cruise industry generated revenues of $37.1 billion in 2014, and is predicted to hit nearly $50 billion by year end 2018 when the number of passengers carried will exceed 25 million.

The Latest Lie From Trump’s Alt-Reality

You never hear the term "black liar" anymore. I think it died in the 19th century, which is a shame, because it'd be a kick to diss a fabulist by saying, "You are a black liar, sir!"

With UN Abstention Obama Bids Israel an ‘Unhappy Hanukkah’

America's "Wreck it Ralph" is at it again. This time, President Obama decided to give Israel one last (we can only pray) kick in the behind before he leaves office. On December 23, the U.N. Security Council brought a resolution to a vote declaring that settlements Israel had built on and occupied since 1967 have "no legal validity."

End Heroin’s Devastation in 2017

I didn't know the young man well - I'd hired him to do some handyman work around my house - but it was awfully unpleasant to learn that he died at 24 with a needle in his arm.

Michelle Obama’s ‘Hopelessness’ Shows it Sucks to be a Liberal
