American thinker-logo

By: Lathan Watts – americanthinker.com – August 8, 2019 If you ask most Americans if they want judges who are presently serving on state or federal courts to act like politicians, you’d likely get a resounding “No.” Take, for example, a 2016 Marist poll in which 52 percent of Americans say they want the Court to interpret the Constitution “as it was originally…

Protesters yell at a police

By: David French – nationalreview.com – August 15, 2019 By excusing the lies Senators Warren and Harris told about Michael Brown’s death, the fact-checking site abandoned its mission. In theory, fact-checking is a valuable media enterprise. No one will do it perfectly — human beings are fallible, after all — but to do it well requires a kind of flinty moral…

democratic-candidates debate

By: Alan S. Blinder – wsj.com – August 14, 201 In my book “Hard Heads, Soft Hearts” (1987), I bemoaned that it was difficult to be both a Democrat and an economist. Democrats, I wrote, often advocated economic policies that were well-intentioned but softheaded. Yes, ends matter, but so do means. Later, it became easy to be a Democrat and an…

Supreme Court building - sunset

By: The Editorial Board – wsj.com – August 15, 2019 When liberals worry about losing a major Supreme Court case, they usually make appeals to the Court’s “legitimacy.” This is intended to attract Chief Justice John Roberts by suggesting that a conservative outcome would damage the institution’s reputation.

Ice Agent in vest

By: Matt Vespa – townhall.com – August 14, 2019 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are Nazis. They have concentration camps set up at the border. They should be abolished.

Marty-Sampson, worship leader

By: Michael Brown – stream.org – August 12, 2019 Update: The Christian Post reported on Tuesday that Sampson responded to Brown’s column, clarifying he hasn’t lost his faith, but it’s “on incredibly shaky ground.” I just read the news that Marty Sampson, a popular Hillsong song writer, is leaving the faith.

Cory Booker campaigns

By: Kimberley A. Strassel – wsj.com – August 8, 2019 Democrats insist there’s no more urgent job than ensuring Donald Trump is a one-term president. Which is odd, given how hard they are simultaneously working to alienate the voters they most need to make that happen. See this week’s debate on gun control.
