Why the Gov. Rick Perry prosecution
unconstitutionally intrudes on the
gubernatorial veto power
Washington Post, by Eugene Volokh    Original Article

I’ve been thinking some more about the veto power question: Does the Texas Constitution’s Veto Clause bar prosecuting Gov. Rick Perry for his vetoing the $7.5 million appropriation to drunk-driving D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg’s Public Integrity Unit? (I’m speaking here specifically of Count I, which is based on the veto; I’ve discussed Count II, which is based on the veto threat, elsewhere). Cornell law professor Michael Dorf, for instance, is unpersuaded by the veto power argument: (Snip)On reflection, though, it seems to that the veto power argument is actually quite strong. Let me elaborate. 1. The veto power is a power of

ATLANTA — After nearly three weeks of treatment, the two American aid workers who were infected with the deadly Ebola virus in Africa have been discharged from an Atlanta hospital, officials said Thursday. Their release poses no public health risk, Dr. Bruce Ribner of Emory University Hospital stressed. Dr. Kent Brantly, 33, and Nancy Writebol, 59, show no evidence of Ebola, and generally patients do not relapse and are not contagious once they´ve recovered, said Ribner, director of the hospital´s infectious disease unit. At a news conference, Brantly, who walked in holding hands with his wife, said, "Today is a

The chief medical examiner of St. Louis County, who performed the first autopsy on Michael Brown after he was shot on Aug. 9, says that she is concerned by one of the men hired by the Brown family to conduct its own exam. “I can tell you absolutely that I find what Parcells does to be abysmal,” Dr. Mary Case told The Daily Caller when asked about Shawn Parcells, a Kansas-based forensic pathologist assistant. He has been accused in the past of fabricating his job title and of conducting autopsies without a license. (Snip) One crucial determination was the trajectory of

A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official last Wednesday declared that his organization has made a "political decision" to support Arab terrorists "slaughtering" Jews living in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem. Jibril Rajoub, head of the PA Sports Authority and Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee, made the statements on the independent Palestinian Arab TV channel Awdah. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) exposed and translated the interview. "OK, brother, here is the occupation, am I stopping you from slaughtering a settlement?

David Cameron cut short his holiday to return to Downing Street and oversee the response after the horrific video was posted online. Speaking to reporters in Number 10, Mr Cameron said it seemed "increasingly likely" that a British citizen was the killer. "Let me condemn the barbaric and brutal act that has taken place and let´s be clear what this act is - it is an act of murder, and murder without any justification," he said. "We have not identified the individual responsible, but from what we have seen it looks increasingly likely that it is a British citizen.

Cincinnati Archdiocese freezes

The Cincinnati Archdiocese has warned Catholic school principals against donating to the ALS Association due to concerns that the money could wind up funding research that uses embryonic stem cells. Archdiocese spokesman Dan Andriacco told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Catholic schools are still allowed to participate in the “ice bucket challenge,” the inescapable viral video sensation that challenges individuals to either dump a bucket of ice water on their heads or donate $100 to the ALS Association. But the archdiocese wants Catholic participants to re-purpose the fundraising juggernaut by donating to a different research group — one the archdiocese believes

“I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur,” Alex Stone wrote in a classroom assignment earlier this week. That fictional slaying led to real-life handcuffs. On the first day of the new school year, the 16-year-old freshman at Summerville High School in Summerville, S.C., was directed by a teacher to pen a few sentences about himself and a Facebook-style “status” as part of an in-class assignment. Stone wrote about killing his neighbor’s pet dino, using a gun to “take care of the business.” His teacher notified school officials, who contacted the police. On Tuesday Stone’s locker and bookbag were searched, and no

Hackensack — A video of a man’s sudden, vicious attack on a passer-by in what city police warn may be among the first local incidents of the “knockout game” was released from a store surveillance camera Wednesday. The athletically built assailant is recorded walking coolly into a convenience store. Four minutes later, he strolls outside, empty-handed and with the same demeanor. But in a burst of violence, he slugs a man he encounters in the face, causing the man to instantly fall to the ground.

President Obama put his own spin on the oft-quoted advice of Teddy Roosevelt: Speak sharply and carry a big nine iron. The vacationing commander-in-chief, after promising a relentless hunt for the terrorist butchers of a U.S. journalist, teed off on a Martha’s Vineyard golf course just a short time later. “Obama is more dedicated to golfing than he is to defending the nation,” sniped Liz Cheney, daughter of the former GOP vice president, via Twitter. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius also took a swing at Obama. “I know in Western countries, this is vacation period,” he said, according to The

The State Department and the U.S. House informed their diplomats and lawmakers respectively this week that they may not participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS research.

Antonio Smith liked to tease girls and show off his dance moves in front of his buddies. He loved playing football. Pretty much like any 9-year-old boy. Wednesday afternoon, Antonio was found in the backyard of a house in the Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side, shot in the chest, hands and arms. He died an hour later at Comer Children´s Hospital, where his cousins were at a loss to explain why anyone would want to gun down the third-grader.

WASHINGTON— President Obama is considering key changes in the nation’s immigration system requested by tech, industry and powerful interest groups, in a move that could blunt Republicans’ election-year criticism of the president’s go-it-alone approach to immigration. Administration officials and advocates said the steps would go beyond the expected relief from deportations for some immigrants in the U.S. illegally that Obama signaled he’d adopt after immigration efforts in Congress collapsed. Following a bevy of recent White House meetings, top officials have compiled specific recommendations from business groups and other advocates whose support could undercut GOP claims that Obama is exceeding his

President Obama’s job approval rating for handling foreign affairs has taken a tumble, nearing the dangerously low score George W. Bush received in his second term. Though Obama averaged a 50% approval rating for his foreign policy platform in his first term, that rating fell to 39% in his second term, according to anew Gallup poll released Thursday. Compared to the past nine presidential terms, only George W. Bush scored a lower rating (38%) in his second term, when the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan were on the brink of disaster. The summer of 2014 has been filled with nonstop international incidents. Crises include

As attorneys Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump continue to represent the family of Michael Brown, the similarities in their approach toward both the Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown shooting continue to mount.

Deputy State Department spokesperson Marie Harf on Wednesday condemned the beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic terrorists, but she also stated that the ISIS threat “is not about the United States and what we do.” Harf spoke after President Obama told the nation that “governments and peoples across the Middle East” should come together in a “common effort to extract this cancer, so that it does not spread.” He then went golfing.

Much of black America and the liberal media are making a huge issue of the Ferguson shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer. We are being treated to endless live reports of rioting and looting, some of them detailing inflows of black and leftist agitators from around the country to keep the Ferguson opportunity hot and in full media focus. All of this comes out of a neighborhood shooting where, if the parties involved had their races reversed, the incident would have been merely local. But what amazes me is the justification for all this upheaval:

Hell freezes over - Senator Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) is running in one of the tightest reelection races in the country, facing freshman Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a U.S. Army veteran. So it may come as some surprise that in Pryor’s new ad released Wednesday, he chose to hone in on his support of President Barack Obama’s unpopular healthcare law. In the personal new ad, Pryor’s father, David, a former senator himself, talks about his son’s battle with sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 1996. “When Mark was diagnosed with cancer, we might lose him,” David Pryor says in a voiceover. “But you know what?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is seeking to ban all tobacco use at every work place in the country, including businesses that operate primarily outdoors. The agency published a Current Intelligence Bulletin (CIB) on Friday that would advise the few workplaces that still allow smoking to end the practice, specifically targeting blue-collar workers in the construction and mining industries. The document, which will be open to public comment for 30 days, provided multiple recommendations from the CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Among them: ban smoking in outdoor work areas and have bosses ask

Obamacare challengers to D.C. Circuit:

subsidies should flow
Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr.    Original Article

Obamacare challengers have asked a federal appeals court to stand down and let the Supreme Court decide whether the government may give subsidies to people who used the federal health exchange, a standoff that threatens to upend the health overhaul. The Court of Appeals for the Circuit of the District of Columbia previously ruled against President Obama in a 2-1 decision that said subsidies may only flow to health exchanges set up by states, based on a phrase in the Affordable Care Act that suggests that is what Congress intended. The ruling invalidated an IRS rule that extended subsidies to exchanges in every state.

Atheist author Richard Dawkins provoked a firestorm Wednesday on Twitter by claiming an unborn baby with Down’s syndrome should be aborted and that it would be “immoral to bring it into the world.” The debate with some of his one million followers began when Dawkins, 73, linked to an article at the liberal New Republic titled, “The Catholic Church prefers medieval barbarism to modern abortion,” by Jerry A. Coyne, according to The Daily Mail. “Ireland is a civilised country except in this one area,” Dawkins said. “You’d think the Roman Church would have lost all influence.” Irish Catholic Aidan McCourt tweeted in return

Sunday night was the most intense evening of the protests that have gone on for more than a week in Ferguson, Missouri. I sat at home and actually considered crashing some big convention in Tampa this week with the chant, “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” I felt driven to do something more than sit home and be a spectator to the most important event since the drama of the Civil Rights Movement. But at some point it occurred to me that making a spectacle at a majority white convention would do very little to help people understand my anger, or the
