Spying On Trump & A Progressive Game of Semantics

Proggie congresscritters claim to be shocked at charges about Obama administration “spying” on team Trump.  Given the public record, that is itself shocking. This from the Blaze (internal links omitted): At a hearing before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) asked Barr about a team he had indicated the [Read More]

Reviewing an online BYU high school Honors Government class

Reviewing Unit 1 of BYU’s online Honors Government class suggests it’s no better than the high school class; the only advantage is that students save time. There’s an interesting unofficial experiment taking place at Little Bookworm’s high school: Rather than sitting through a semester of Government (five days a week [Read More]

Federalist Society 2017 Natl Lawyers Convention: AG Jeff Sessions

On Friday, November 17, 2017, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, delivered a rather refreshing speech at the Federalist Society 2017 National Lawyers Convention.

Outrageous Leftist hypocrisy about Arpaio’s pardon and DACA

Progressives claim Trump acted “unconstitutionally” with Arpaio’s pardon, while excoriating him for reversing Obama’s unconstitutional DACA program. Back in August, when President Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, my Leftist friends were outraged. As far as they were concerned, he’d effectively pardoned the KKK’s Grand Kleagle.

Baltimore: Clueless

By: Mike McDaniel    Since the criminal trial portion of the Mosby-Induced disaster in Baltimore, willing observers have had a re-education about the nature of progressive governance.

Independence Day, 2017

By: Mike McDaniel   I originally wrote this article for July 4, 2013.  I chose the photo of the B1 because I was fortunate enough to know a B1 instructor pilot who arranged for me to “fly” a B1 simulator for 45 minutes.  It was a fascinating experience, all the more so [Read More]

The real Obama legacy (and it’s worse than Obamacare)

The real Obama legacy is a toxic administrative statute, a corrupt judiciary, the end of the Rule of Law, and a world that is unstable and very dangerous. With only 1,392 days left in the Trump presidency, we’re already being told that, because Obamacare has not yet been repealed, Trump’s [Read More]

The Bookworm Beat 3/16/17 — the Rule of Law is Dead edition and open thread

While the rule of law is not completely dead, it’s dead enough to justify the title for this quick round up of today’s lawless news. The latest federal opinions would bar President Trump from ever again issuing an executive order. William Jacobson, of Legal Insurrection, has looked beyond the obvious [Read More]

Conservative Violence: The Horror

By: Mike McDaniel    Often, reading the work of others, such as my colleague and pal, Bookworm,  gives me ideas for articles. Nearly as often, comments by readers do the same, such as this one by nunnyadayambiddness: Something that I have been noticing for some time now, related to firearms and the general [Read More]
