twitter-followme

I’ve been pondering what to say about this project for tracking hate speech for two days. There is little more to be said than that it proves yet again that the Federal Government needs to be dismantled, department-by-department, until the

OK, I’m slightly exaggerating to say that Justin Amash said it to the entire GOP establishment. He was speaking specifically to a retired congressman, Pete Hoekstra, who backed his opponent in the primary. Hoekstra lost the 2012 gubernatorial primary and

I reported about Justin Amash last November: “GOP Corruptocrats Working to Oust Justin Amash.” Justin Amash is the standard bearer for Ron Paul Republicanism in the House of Representatives. He almost got the NSA’s illegal spy program defunded. He stands

BigBrother (2)

A new leaker after Edward Snowden? Should we declare him a traitor? I’d love some reader feedback about this one. You may remember back on July 24 that I posted about “The Definition of Terrorist Expanding Under Barack Obama.” The Obama Administration

A Republican Defends CIA Spying---After They Admit Guilt!

I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that a Republican defends CIA spying—or at least claims that they never really did it. What does surprise me is that he does so after they admit guilt! As Bob Allen wrote, “What the

The Weekly Standard reports that the IRS gave Lois Lerner a bonus, specifically a “retention bonus”—an incentive for her to keep her job harrassing, obstructing, and burdening conservative taxpayers whose money was used to offer her that bonus. Media coverage of yesterday’s

The report blames the NSA for whistleblower fears, but even before the Snowden revelations the government committed acts that could only make people afraid to talk to the news media. The Department of Justice put taps on the phones of

holder-guns

The definition of terrorist is much like the definition of “criminal” in relation to the political class: they have a motive to enlarge it. No one described this fact more dramatically than Ayn Rand in her novel, Atlas Shrugged, where
