Having been clobbered in the midterms, the president put on his cockiest face and strut, and in a carefully orchestrated setting designed to make him look imperial poked a thumb in the eye of the newly-elected Congress by announcing that he would not deport the people he was already not deporting. The next day the House of Representatives sued him for overreaching on ObamaCare, but despite a lot of understandably outraged yammering, it is not likely to follow suit or at least succeed in similarly challenging on constitutional grounds his immigration executive order.

Closeup: Comfortable examining room. Kindly doctor is administering to a weeping woman. The feeling is one of confidence and assurance. We are in good hands. Cut to doctor: He looks into the camera, smiling with authority. That’s when the viewer sees that, why, it’s kindly Dr. Cliff Huxtable! Doc Huxtable looks into the camera and says: I play a doctor on TV, but in real life I’m a mad rapist. What? You don’t think that commercial would fly? Yes, yes, I know that Bill Cosby only played Dr. Huxtable on TV, but for those of us who couldn’t get enough

Is There Any Hope For Our Civilization?

I am an inveterate optimist, but the more I learn about what goes on in our universities, the more I conclude that our civilization has a death wish. Heather MacDonald’s article in City Journal on “micro-aggression” at UCLA prompted this particular bout of despondency. What goes on in our universities is scarcely believable. MacDonald’s article is lengthy and should be read in its entirety, but here are a few excerpts with my comments. In November 2013, two dozen graduate students at the University of California at Los Angeles marched into an education class and announced a protest against its “hostile and

When President Obama’s healthcare law went into effect and millions of Americans had their plans canceled despite promises to the contrary, the administration argued that the new law would provide those who were displaced with better options. But under changes being contemplated by the Department of Health and Human Services, people who like their Obamacare plans might not get to keep their plans. Or at least, not by default. In a Friday night news dump, HHS released proposed new regulations for the 2016 benefit year (with open enrollment proposed for next Oct. 1 through Dec. 15), including one rule that

He had just delivered a historic immigration speech that sparked outrage among Republicans. So today, President Barack Obama decided to take a break at an exclusive Las Vegas golf course. And teeing off alongside the politician was retired New York Yankees captain, Derek Jeter. Scroll down for video - Obama and Jeter, who played his last game for the Yankees on September 28, were spotted playing golf at Shadow Creek in North Las Vegas, one of the most prestigious courses in the world. They were joined by Obama campaign supporter Stephen Cloobeck and the owner of the Las Vegas Sun

That Great Chocolate Shortage; Of Course
It´s Bad Public Policy, Why Do You Ask?

The last few days have seen us regaled with a serious of stories about how the world is going to run out of chocolate. That would be, I think we can all agree, almost as bad as running out of bacon. So it’s worth thinking through the reasons as to why we might be running out. After all, cocoa, from which chocolate is made, is a plant, it’s obviously renewable in that it grows each season. So how can we be running out of something we farm? The answer is, in part at least, that there’s some bad public policy

In Midnight in Siberia, National Public Radio host David Greene uses the Siberian Express as a literal and figurative vehicle to explore Russia’s heart. Travelling with his NPR companion and Russian interlocutor, Sergei, this book isn’t simply a travel book. Midnight in Siberia is a strong exploration of Russia’s troubled present, which takes seriously the complexities of the matters it addresses. Consider the issue of alcoholism. Dining with the different families he meets, Greene takes pains to acquaint us with a defining Russia tradition: “It is bad luck to only have one shot.” From the very start of this journey, we

Finally, the first biting political spoof from Saturday Night Live in a while: the Bill from Schoolhouse Rock explains to a student how he becomes a law, only to be violently beat up by Barack Obama and his new best friend, “Executive Order.”Even then, the poor Executive Order still thinks he’s used for simple things, like declaring holidays and creating national parks, until Obama informs him that he’s going to be used to grant amnesty to 5 million undocumented immigrants. His reaction: “Whoa.” Watch below via NBC: (Video)

Africa Nears Eradication of Polio

One month after quelling its deadly Ebola outbreak, Nigeria stands poised to make another public-health triumph—the near-eradication of polio. Since 2012, when the World Health Organization declared the crippling infectious disease a “global-health emergency,” the West African country (the last center of polio on the continent) has overhauled its strategies for combating the scourge. Now, through rigorous vaccination campaigns, Nigeria is on the verge of eliminating the virus and making Africa polio-free, the CDC reported Thursday. From January to August of this year, Nigeria only reported six cases of polio—a significant drop from the 49 cases it had during that same period

In a post yesterday, I talked about a particular freedom that those on the left have: If the process gets in your way — separation of powers, the Constitution, and all that — just disregard it, and go for your desired result. Gotta break a few eggs, you know. We must bend that arc toward justice. Here is another freedom that the Left has: They can quote the Bible with impunity. Obama did so in his amnesty announcement: “Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger . . .” In her convention speech, Elizabeth Warren offered a quote —

A prominent American Jesuit recently named by Pope Francis to prosecute priests accused of sexually abusing minors under Church law was himself one of several Catholic officials who failed to stop a notorious abusive priest now serving a 25-year prison sentence, legal documents show. The Rev. Robert J. Geisinger, named in September as the pope’s “Promoter of Justice,” was the second highest ranking official among the Chicago Jesuits in the 1990s when leaders were facing multiple abuse complaints against the Rev. Donald J. McGuire, a globe-trotting priest who was close to Mother Teresa of Calcutta. But the Jesuits failed to

Back when Bill Cosby was the king of network television, veteran NBC employee Frank Scotti served as the royal fixer. When Cosby invited young models into his Brooklyn dressing room, the megastar’s pal stood watch outside the door. When the married Cosby sought a Queens apartment for another pretty face, Scotti arranged the deal. And when the man behind Fat Albert needed cash disbursed to his flock of single female friends — hey, hey, hey — Scotti became the conduit for payments of up to $2,000 a month. “He had everybody fooled,” said Scotti in an exclusive interview with the Daily News. “Nobody

  


  

America Has Been Warned: Edward

What can a chronicler of barbarian invasions, writing in the 18th century, explain to Americans in the 21st century?What lessons can we learn today from the fall of an ancient empire? Plenty. Many. Indeed, as immigration is a hot issue today, we might look to long-ago scholarship to remind us that the basic patriotic loyalty of the home population can never be taken for granted. In particular, if the demography of the population changes, its loyalties will change. Edward Gibbon’s famous work of history, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, was published in six volumes, from 1776 to 1788.

Incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has put out the word to his fellow senators: Be prepared, come Jan. 6, Fridays will be work days. The message came out via Mr. McConnell’s release of the 2015 Senate calendar, which indicates that the 114th Congress that begins Jan. 6 will include meetings on Fridays, The Hill reported. Current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also had his calendar set for Friday meetings, but more often than not, he would schedule final votes before 4 p.m. on Thursdays, The Hill reported. The Senate, in fact, hasn’t worked a five-day week all year. Only time will tell

It’s Cops 101. The principal of East Side Community HS invited the New York Civil Liberties Union to give a two-day training session last week on interacting with police. The 450 kids were coached on staying calm during NYPD encounters and given a “What To Do If You’re Stopped By The Police” pamphlet. NYCLU representatives told kids to be polite and to keep their hands out of their pockets. But they also told students they don’t have to show ID or consent to searches, that it’s best to remain silent, and how to file a complaint against an officer. Principal Mark Federman said he

There is so much that is deeply strange in a New York Times story reported Friday by Jason Horowitz. Assuming the article is factually correct, and it certainly appears to be well reported, the president of the United States phoned the majority leader of the U.S. Senate during a legislative crisis to complain that one of the senator’s staffers is a leaker. Unbeknown to the president, the staffer was listening in on the call and broke in to rebut the president’s accusation. This is more like a television version of Washington—something a scriptwriter of a D.C.-based drama would concoct—than Washington as it

It´s fitting that President Obama´s decision to temporarily protect 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation came just before Thanksgiving, which celebrates the generosity this country´s original inhabitants showed to the undocumented immigrants who landed on their shores in 1620. Unfortunately, the connection was lost on Gary Varvel, an Indianapolis Star cartoonist who doesn´t seem to like the idea of sharing anything with people who do not look like him. Varvel´s latest cartoon, published on Friday, shows a mopey white dad holding a turkey and telling his scared-looking family, "Thanks to the President´s immigration order, we´ll be having extra guests this Thanksgiving"

At some point during grade school, American children are taught about the separation of powers. The Founders, in their wisdom, pit ambition against ambition. This adversarial relationship was by design, intended to be a check on power. Even unpopular features of our democratic process – like gridlock – can be seen as a feature, not a bug. Roles and responsibilities were simplistically defined thusly: Congress passes the laws, the judicial branch interprets those laws, and the executive branch (the president) enforces those laws. Less simplistic, but still understandable, is that in enforcing those laws, the president has some leeway – some

A job for life on the United States Supreme Court is "a great gig" – but has its downsides for the new kid on the bench, says Justice Elena Kagan, a newbie for four years now. "They hazed me, this is true," Kagan joked Thursday of the eight high court justices with more seniority. Though Kagan, 54, joined the court in 2010, there have been no newer vacancies for President Obama to fill, so she´s been stuck with a nickname she can´t shake. "Everybody refers to the Junior Justice as ´The Junior Justice,´ " Kagan said in a talk at Princeton University,

Anthony Brown, the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nominee who lost in an upset in November, took out a $500,000 loan from a labor union late in his campaign and has so far failed to repay the money as agreed, according to a financial report filed earlier this week. The loan and Brown’s failure to meet the Nov. 7 deadline were reported first by The Baltimore Sun. Taking out such a loan is Maryland in legal. And the move by Brown, the state’s lieutenant governor, who was expected to win in Democratic-leaning Maryland, is not without precedent in the state. Larry Hogan,
