There’s a lot of Hillary Clinton corruption stories out today. Perhaps the biggest one is today’s revelation that longtime Clinton confidante and hatchet man Sidney Blumenthal, banned from serving in government by President Obama, instead advised then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on foreign policy while on the payroll of the Clinton Family Foundation Slush […]

Most American journalists are cowards

With the notable exception of the small class of American war correspondents, the vast majority of American journalists are, to use the Texas phrase: “All hat and no cattle.” The assassination this morning of ten satirists at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo along with two police officers by adherents of the “Religion of Pieces” has once […]

Predictably liberal

Cal Poly’s College of Liberal Arts and a group called Citizens Congress 2014 led by San Luis Obispo farmer and former actor William Ostrander held a symposium earlier this evening on “Money In Politics: What Could Go Wrong.” While I could only stay for about 75 minutes due to my second and third jobs (the […]

Good Cause Requirements for Speaking in Public

Posted · 2 Comments

Should any reason for wanting to speak be good enough? Can the government require a person to give reasons before speaking in public? If so, what reasons must it accept? The answers to these questions remain somewhat unclear, but their importance is difficult to overstate.  Licensing requirements for public speaking — especially to large numbers […]

Today the Supreme Court released a very brief per curiam opinion that got lost in all the brouhaha surrounding the Arizona Immigration case, which I’ll have some things to day about later.

Google again fails to uphold motto

Posted · 1 Comment

UPDATE & BUMPED Google’s motto is famously “Don’t Be Evil”—they’re failing miserably. For the record, I chastised Google—civilly—in a response to this thread, which was promptly flushed down the memory hole.  Nitecruzr—whoever he is—has all the makings of a little thug. UPDATE I’ve apparently paid for my intervention on Althouse’s part. Patterico is reporting that […]

I can’t make this stuff up. If Bill Clinton had his way, there would be an Internet agency created by the U.S. government or United Nations to debunk malicious rumors that originate and spread online. "I think it would be a legitimate thing to do," Clinton told CNBC in an interview that aired Friday. He […]

Let me preface this by stating a few facts. Terry Jones is a jackass of little note who shouldn’t have a gun. If the media behaved responsibly rather than ginning up controversy, no one would’ve heard of the guy. The media is using Jones to once again portray Christians as instigators and Muslims as victims.

Free Speech rights of students

Longtime readers may recall the case of Poway High School student Taylor Harper’s T-shirt protesting the “Day of Silence” pro-gay rights event approved by the school. After years of litigation, the Supreme Court finally got the case, decided it was moot (Harper had graduated), but still vacated the 9th Circuit’s decision upholding the district’s decision […]
