Yesterday the Supreme Court heard oral argument in King v. Burwell, an important case dealing with the Obama administration’s attempt to hand out tax credits not authorized by the text of the law.

I’m not reflexively opposed to executive orders and other unilateral actions by the White House. A president and his appointees, after all, have a lot of regulatory authority.

At a recent gathering of some of the most rabid pro-aborts in the nation, Senator Al Franken apologized for being a guy. I don’t think he needs to apologize.

Michael Sam will be a contestant on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” which is both fitting and proper. Why? Because, to the media, Michael Sam is a star. The one who went unsilenced by homophobia. The one who stared down the ingrained cultural machismo of America’s most manly game and said, “I’m not like you, and I don’t care what you think of me.” He’s the liberal sports media’s warrior, and the face of the gay civil-rights crusade they have yearned to launch. As CBS Sports said, Michael Sam is a story “we’ve been waiting on for years.”

The rule of law is in grave danger, as federal regulators use ever thinner legal pretexts to enable vast public policy changes without votes by our elected representatives. In a span of just seven days, the FCC declared the Internet a public utility, Congress acceded to DHS implementing executive amnesty, the president used a veto threat to protect the NLRB’s ambush elections rule, and the Supreme Court’s four liberals showed they are not just willing but enthusiastic to allow the IRS to ignore the plain language of Obamacare. A great week for regulators, but a terrible week for everyone else.

Clinton is hardly the first Obama administration official to utilize a private email account to shield herself.

The Jewish Festival of Purim, celebrated this year on March 5th, "commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia (modern day Iran) from Haman's plot 'to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.'" Instead, Queen Esther, a Jewess, stepped forward and bravely saved her people.

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s appearance before Congress highlighted the proposed agreement between the United States and Iran on nuclear power. Virtually all reports contend that these negotiations will lead to a “deal” or an “agreement.”

On Wednesday morning, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in King v. Burwell, a challenge to Obamacare that could gut a core provision of the law.
Kenneth Kopf | March 4, 2015 | 9:39 AM
It’s all about credibility. The credibility of Iran. The credibility of the Obama Administration and the credibility of PM Netanyahu and Israel.

Political correctness is a pathological disorder.
L. Brent Bozell III | March 4, 2015 | 4:59 AM
The entirety of the Obama era is marked by secrecy, obfuscation and, if all else fails, sheer dishonesty. What is it about these elites that they believe rules just don't pertain to them?

Would Pope Francis build a secret uranium-enrichment facility? The question is absurd. But would Iran's Supreme Leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, build one? The answer: No, he has built at least two.

National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys have filed a “friend of the Court” brief with the U.S. Supreme Court, urging it to hear a challenge to public-sector union officials’ power to force America’s civil servants into dues-paying ranks. Foundation attorneys filed the brief late Friday in support of the challenge, titled Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, brought by ten California teachers supported by the Center for Individual Rights.

During periods of economic weakness, governments often respond with “loose” monetary policy, which generally means that central banks will take actions that increase liquidity and artificially lower interest rates.

As the Supreme Court readies to hear oral arguments on Wednesday in the landmark King vs. Burwell case, which challenges the legality of federal health care subsidies under the Affordable Care Act for individuals living in states that have not set up their own health care exchange, many will say the issue is one of health care coverage.

The framers of the constitution added the second amendment for some very good reasons, and it's not only for hunting, target practice and personal protection, as most people tend to believe.

Same-sex marriage is now permitted in three-fourths of the American States (37 states plus in the District of Columbia, as of February 27, 2015). (However, same-sex marriage is legitimate in only eleven of those states – because only eleven of those states have legislatively acted on the issue with legislators or voters approving of the legalization of same-sex marriage. In all of the other (25) states where same-sex marriage is legal, it is the result of illegitimate judicial mandates. But the legitimacy issue is another topic.)

President Barack Obama wants Americans to dig deeper into our pockets to expand college education. Let's update college indoctrination done in the name of education.

Despite our outrage over the barbarity of ISIS — beheadings of journalists and aid workers by "Jihadi John," and of Christians on a beach — this century does not remotely rival in evil the bloodiest century of them all, the 20th.

If Obama had his way, he'd probably dissolve Congress as an inconvenient nuisance and obstacle to his iron rule. He usurps its authority at every turn. So even if this is a departure from protocol, it's not unconstitutional by any stretch, and Obama and his defenders have no standing to complain.
