    The ACLU Has Basically Quit Defending The Constitution

    The American Civil Liberties Union, an organization that once so rigidly adhered to the neutral principles in the Constitution that it famously defended the right of a neo-Nazi group to march through the Jewish-laden Chicago suburb of Skokie, has been increasingly rejiggering its positions to correspond with the Left’s hard lurch towards cafeteria constitutionalism.

    This week, for example, one of its senior policy analysts came up with an imaginative rationalization for limiting gun rights. “The wide availability of guns and their misuse is leading to restrictions on Americans’ freedom,” the organization tweeted this week, “and that needs to be part of the firearms debate.” The piece the tweet links to makes a, “A Pro-Liberty Case for Gun Restrictions,” which, though it’s become a tediously misused cliché over the years, can only be described as Orwellian.

    Then-Secretary of State Clinton: “We Very Much Want To Have A Strong Russia”

    Whoa!  Hold the phone!  Actor James Woods tweeted out an old video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in which she openly said she and the Obama administration wanted a “strong Russia.”

    Woods’ response was, “Wait, what?” as I’m sure many people were thinking.

    “I mean we want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interest of the world,” she said. READ MORE...

    Kids Who Attend Gov’t Preschool Learn Less, Misbehave More

    Latest results from the first randomized control trial of a state pre-kindergarten program found participants’ early gains quickly transformed into worse academic performance, more discipline problems, and higher special education placements than children who hadn’t participated. By second or third grade, the nearly 3,000 children studied who participated in Tennessee’s Voluntary Pre-K Program (TNVPK, or VPK) had statistically significant negative results compared to peers who mostly stayed home with their families.

  • Liberal Group Behind Resistance to Supreme Court Pick Hides Its Funding

    Liberal Group Behind Resistance to Supreme Court Pick Hides Its Funding

    A left-leaning advocacy group that plans to spend millions opposing Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court has obscured funding sources through an opaque organizational structure.

    Conservative advocacy groups dramatically outpaced liberal efforts on judicial confirmations in recent years, dominating the fundraising and communications space around Supreme Court nominations.

    But some Democratic operatives have formed a new progressive political outfit that hopes to close the right’s competitive advantage. Former Hillary Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon leads the operation, called Demand Justice, with support from alumni of the Clinton presidential campaign and the Obama administration. READ MORE...

  • Firing a Bad Federal Employee May Get a Little Easier

    Firing a Bad Federal Employee May Get a Little Easier

    Holding federal employees accountable is essentially impossible. They have the highest job security of any sector of the economy. In fact, out of a federal non-military workforce of 2.1 million, only 11,046 persons—or 0.5 percent—were fired in 2017.

    One reason for this is the cumbersome process managers must endure to fire a single employee. Multiple appeals involving as many as four separate agencies, as well as union representatives, are not uncommon. This process can last years even in the most cut-and-dry cases. READ MORE...

    ‘Deep Fake’ Technology Is a Threat to National Security, Politics, and the Media, Marco Rubio Says

    Sen. Marco Rubio says so-called “deep fakes”—the ability to use artificial intelligence video tools to swap a person’s face on another person’s body, with little indication of manipulation—is a threat to national security.

    “One of the ironies of the 21st century is that technology has made it cheaper than ever to do that … . In the old days, if you wanted to threaten the United States, you needed 10 aircraft carriers, and nuclear weapons, and long-range missiles,” the Florida Republican said in a speech Thursday at The Heritage Foundation about the danger of deep fakes, the ability to manipulate audio and video of real people to have them do or say things they never said or did.

    Watch ‘The View’ Devolve Into Chaos Between Whoopi And Jeanine Pirro

    Whoopi Goldberg and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro got into a screaming match with one another over Donald Trump during a segment of ABC’s “The View” today.

    “You’re suffering from Trump derangement in this room,” Pirro says, pointing at Whoopi.

    “Did you just point at me?” Whoopi asks.

    “Yesssss!” Pirro replies.

    “Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement,” Whoopi says. “Let me tell you what I have. I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with ‘Mexicans are liars and rapists.’” READ MORE...
