The Dumb Debate: Big vs. Small

One of the dumbest points of contention in modern politics is the Big Government vs. Small Government one.

Whither the Islamic State? That's a real double-edged question: where is the group otherwise known as ISIS headed, and can the United States and other civilized nations make it shrivel up and die? The group is and has taken off like a bat out of hell, gobbling up territory and becoming a virtual murder machine.

Time for GOP to deal with Gohmert

There are a lot of offensive ways to observe 9/11. A yoga studio near DC offered a 20 percent off sale ("9 + 11 = 20 PERCENT OFF!"), and a sex toy company soberly tweeted remembrance of "those lost, & honor those still fighting for freedom." But the most off-putting way to remember the terrorist attacks on 9/11 was by Rep. Louie Gohmert, who thinks of Sep. 11 as the anniversary of Benghazi, or as he says it, "BENGHAZI!!"

Clueless Pundits Cluck About Domestic Violence

Democrats to Repeal First Amendment

With House Republicans focused on legislation to boost job creation, the Senate is spending its time on an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would repeal the First Amendment with respect to political speech. Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said before the debate even officially began: "I expect a fully partisan vote." So what exactly are all the Senate Democrats for and Republicans against?

Nixon's Vindication

Forty years ago many Americans celebrated the demise of the imperial presidency with the resignation of Richard Nixon. Today, it is clear they celebrated too soon. Nixon's view of presidential powers, summed up in his infamous statement that, "when the president does it that means it is not illegal," is embraced by the majority of the political class. In fact, the last two presidents have abused their power in ways that would have made Nixon blush.
