• Sharia California: Man Charged For Sending Islamocritical Posts To Islamic Center Of Southern California

    Sharia California: Man Charged For Sending Islamocritical Posts To Islamic Center Of Southern California

    All right, so apparently “intent to annoy or harass” is a misdemeanor in Southern California.

    Had I known that, I could have brought up on charges about a thousand people who have emailed me over the years.

    But there’s the rub, actually: is “intent to annoy or harass” a crime when directed at non-Muslims, or only at Muslims?

    Would Feigin have been prosecuted if he had written five comments critical of Christianity on some church’s Facebook page?

    Peter Thiel & Palantir: The CIA-Backed Tech Giant That’s Sifting & Sorting Your Info For Government

    Yes, while a tyrannical government that violates the law and searches and seizes without probable cause and a warrant are realities that we should be concerned about, there is a tremendous threat coming from a company called Palantir, which is backed by the Central Intelligence Agency.

    Palantir presents themselves as “We build products that make people better at their most important work — the kind of work you read about on the front page of the newspaper, not just the technology section.” READ MORE...

  • Why Abortion Supporters Pretend To Care About Woman Judges

    Why Abortion Supporters Pretend To Care About Woman Judges

    It’s the judges, stupid. Cloaked beneath claims of sexism, that message headlined the year-end social media feed of Cecile Richards, president of the nation’s largest abortion provider Planned Parenthood: “81 percent of President Trump’s judicial nominees are men. If confirmed, they could reshape the judiciary for years to come. Courts matter.”

    Richards is right. Courts matter. They matter because liberal judges long ago stopped interpreting the law and started inventing the law. They matter because activist judges ignore clear constitutional mandates while conjuring up imaginary constitutional rights. They matter because liberal judges no longer judge—they pontificate according to their political proclivities. It shouldn’t be this way in a constitutional republic. But it is. READ MORE...

  • Clinton Allies Paid $700,000 For Women To Accuse Trump of Sexual Misconduct Week Before Election

    Clinton Allies Paid $700,000 For Women To Accuse Trump of Sexual Misconduct Week Before Election

    A couple of Clinton family loyalists shelled out at least $700,000 to an attorney specialized in sexual harassment claims — so that she could ultimately pay women who were willing to accuse Donald Trump of sexual harassment.

    This comes from the New York Times.

    David Brock, one of the Democratic Party’s biggest defenders, helped pay for the campaign.

    The Daily Wire reports more:

    Two close Clinton allies dumped at least $700,000 to prominent sexual harassment lawyer Lisa Bloom to fund women willing to accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct the week before the presidential election, reports The New York Times. READ MORE...

  • 5 Worst Echo Chamber Talking Points About The Iranian Uprising

    5 Worst Echo Chamber Talking Points About The Iranian Uprising

    The Iranian people are in the midst of their largest protests since the 2009 Green movement, and many on the Left don’t seem especially thrilled about the prospects of a free Iran. The muted reaction is partly due to a troubling trend of justifying and excusing Islamic fascism in a broader and confused attempt at signaling tolerance. But almost surely an even more powerful factor is the need to protect Barack Obama’s legacy and criticize Donald Trump.

    While we don’t know what will happen in Iran, or what we can do about it, it’s clearer than ever that our funding, legitimatizing, and propping up the Iranian regime — one that is now killing peaceful protesters who are demanding economic opportunity, freedom, and secular governance — was morally and politically tragic. (This includes imaginary “moderates” and mullahs alike.) Rather than further isolating and economically stunting the regime, Obama gave it cover. READ MORE...

  • House and Senate Should Reconcile Their Bills to Replace Dodd-Frank

    House and Senate Should Reconcile Their Bills to Replace Dodd-Frank

    In June, the House passed the Financial CHOICE Act, a comprehensive financial regulatory reform bill that would replace large parts of the 2010 Dodd-Frank law.

    Because the Republicans hold a slim majority in the Senate, passing such a comprehensive reform package is difficult, at best. Nonetheless, the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, led by Chairman Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, recently passed its own reform bill with bipartisan support.

    That bill—the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act—is a more targeted financial reform bill than the CHOICE Act, but there’s a great deal of overlap between the two measures. READ MORE...

  • 10 Ways the Trump Administration Beat Back Excessive Regulation in 2017

    10 Ways the Trump Administration Beat Back Excessive Regulation in 2017

    Federal rulemaking slowed dramatically in 2017, with the Trump administration issuing two-thirds fewer regulations in its first year (1,136) than both Presidents Barack Obama (3,356) and George W. Bush (3,927).

    The White House has also committed federal agencies to more than 400 deregulatory actions in 2018.

    Here are 10 of the past year’s most consequential actions to rein in the regulatory excesses of previous administrations.

    1. Clean Power Plan.

    At an estimated annual cost of $7.2 billion, the Clean Power Plan was the centerpiece of the Obama administration’s global warming crusade. The Environmental Protection Agency on Oct. 16 published its proposed repeal of the regulation on the grounds that the rulemaking exceeded the agency’s statutory authority. READ MORE...
