Making a point on the BCRA

The Supreme Court's decision is merely on the BCRA on its face. More lawsuits will come on the actual application of the law. The Supreme Court will likely revisit the case when someone is fined or prosecuted by the Federal Election Commission. I want to be one of those people. As Starr has said, individuals […]

More on the Supreme Court stifling political speech

Once again, the link to the decisuon itself is here. I haven't read the majority opinion, and I'm not going to, because on its face I believe it's bogus. There's no way that stifling criticism of federal candidates in the weeks leading up to election day is a boon for the democratic process. I've read […]

The Fifth Column

I just finished reading the much linked-to article by Frank Gaffney over at FrontPage magazine.com. It is extensive and convincing in making the case that Grover Norquist is assisting anti-American Muslim organizations with access to the president and hiding their ties to terrorists -- at home and abroad.

Impeach Breyer, Ginsberg, O'Conner, Stevens, Souter

The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 today that people cannot purchase advertisements on TV, radio or in newspapers opposing or supporting candidates in the weeks leading up to an election. (I care less about the ban on unlimited soft-money donations to parties, though the way that restriction works is really stupid.) [Correction: Further research appears to […]

Mr. Puckett said he was informed yesterday by the division's judge advocate that the hearing officer, Lt. Col. Jimmy Davis, recommended what is called Article 15 punishment, not a trial. Under this procedure, Col. West would appear before Gen. Odierno. […]

The latest fake peace plan

"The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart had this to say last week regarding the fraudulent Mideast peace plan. And I vow that as long as there are imaginary treaties, signed by pretend delegates to create hypothetical peace, this fake news show will be there to cover it. That's about the extent of the coverage that this […]

Let there be peace on Earth

And we will have peace...at least until next year. Headline: Democrats meet for final debate of year The things are useless anyway, there's never anything new. Kerry: When I served in Vietnam... Gephardt: My dad drove a milk truck. Dean: As I was wearing my tinfoil hat last night, I received an interesting theory... Sharpton: […]

Actually, no serious person is sure what the conservative majority will do here. That's common in these politically charged cases. Meanwhile, literally nobody doubts what the *Democrat-appointed* justices will do. So who is "deeply partisan" again? https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/12/01/supreme-court-abortion-argument-roe-dead/

Doing some research and checked out @TheDispatchFC front page. It turns out the answer to every single one of these is "No." But one doesn't have that simple explanation on the main page. Why?
