Rush Limbaugh Praises Trump’s Trillion-Dollar Infrastructure Plan

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:30:50 +0000

Rush Limbaugh spent part of the morning justifying Donald Trump’s trillion-dollar infrastructure program. Neither man has apparently ever heard of Bastiat or Henry Hazlitt. That’s why Rush can’t explain why this boondoggle is a problem. It’s OK. I’ll explain it, since Rush won’t. Here’s Rush: If Trump actually follows through on this trillion dollars to […]

The Left Suddenly Discovers the Joys of Decentralized Governance

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 19:30:18 +0000

Under Barack Obama, leftists relentlessly pursued national laws to address every possible issue, from health care to gun control. But all of a sudden, pieces in left-leaning publications indicate that some leftists, faced with a federal government controlled by Republicans, are starting to muse about the merits of states’ rights. And I think it’s wonderful. […]

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 16:58:42 +0000

Offered without comment: Ivanka Trump is meeting Monday with climate change activist and former Vice President Al Gore. The president-elect’s daughter, who reportedly wants to make global warming one of her signature issues, will meet with Gore at Trump Tower in Manhattan, according to transition spokesman Jason Miller. The former vice president will not be […]

Evan McMullin Does Not Like Donald Trump

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:53:33 +0000

And says so in the New York Times:: On July 7, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump, met privately with House Republicans near the Capitol. I was present as chief policy director of the House Republican Conference. Mr. Trump’s purpose was to persuade the representatives to unite around him, a pitch he delivered […]

The Constitutional Vanguard: Article II and Presidential Power

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:00:12 +0000

The Constitutional Vanguard is my group that promotes liberty, free markets, and the Constitution. I started it on May 3, the day I left the Republican party, and it is now my main vehicle besides this blog for spreading the word about principles I worry that Donald Trump will ignore. More than just an entertaining […]

Affirmative Wage Deduction: A Proposal to Discourage Illegal Immigration

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 00:11:00 +0000

[I recently ran a contest to promote Liberty Classroom, a site run by libertarian Tom Woods which has 17 classes on free-market economics and history from a liberty perspective. As part of the incentives, I offered people the chance to submit a guest post. This first post is by David Barulich and proposes a solution […]

San Bernardino Terror Attack One Year Later: Blame The Christmas Party

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 07:46:51 +0000

[guest post by Dana] It was reported this week that last year’s terror attack in San Bernardino may have been the result of… Christmas trees and other symbols of holiday cheer: Authorities believe the terrorist attack on Dec. 2, 2015, in San Bernardino may have been triggered by a mandatory employee training session and lunch […]

Straight-Up Fascism Never Results In A “Meaningful Discussion,” No Matter What The Brown-Shirt Thugs Claim

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 22:30:36 +0000

[guest post by Dana] This is utterly infuriating. I would have called the police. These clowns are a spectacular indictment against current higher education in America. I suspect the obnoxious chick doesn’t realize this kind of harassment only serves to compel citizens to demand that immigration laws on the books be fully enforced. And unfortunately […]

No, Jazz Shaw, the Holdout Juror in the Slager Trial Should *Not* Consider the Consequences of Hanging the Jury

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 21:30:19 +0000

Michael Slager has been convicted by the media, but not yet by the jury Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, on the possibility that the jury in the Michael Slager trial will declare itself deadlocked: That’s why there’s a bigger risk in having this trial fail than the basic question of justice and seeing the guilty […]

What #DumpKelloggs and Trump’s Threats Have in Common: Unintended Consequences

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 21:00:46 +0000

A few days ago, embarked on a jihad against the Kellogg Company, after Kellogg pulled its advertising from Breitbart, saying the sometimes incendiary site wasn’t “aligned with our values.” Breitbart then “launched a #DumpKelloggs petition and called for a boycott of the ubiquitous food manufacturer.” (An amusing side effect of this was the emergence […]
