House Majority Leader Cantor backs away from stealth amnesty plan

This is a truly interesting development, because it illuminates the vast gulf between the urgent need to legalize illegal aliens felt by the Ruling Class and its media, and the way average American citizens view the issue.  The "Enlist Act" mentioned by Politico is probably the least controversial form of amnesty imaginable - a "DREAM Act" giving citizenship to young illegals who serve in the military - and it was going to be passed by stealth, plugged into the National Defense Authorization Act.  But House Majority Leader Eric Cantor still backed away from it: May 17, 2014 7:04 AM PT

Insurance companies secure their ObamaCare bailouts

Remember a few months ago, when Democrats were pretending that the "risk corridor" provisions of ObamaCare wouldn't function as a high-pressure pipe of taxpayer money to bail out insurance companies that don't pull enough Young Invincible suckers into their networks - a demographic balance that would ensure healthy people were over-billed enough to cover money-losing mandated coverage for the older and sicker?  Marco Rubio was pushing a bill that would stave off the bailouts, and the Administration said he was crazy to think the risk corridors would be used for that purpose.

The latest neurotic campus brownshirt freak-out: Camels are racist

There are reasons to be deeply concerned about the fascist tendencies of campus pressure groups, which are reveling in their use of the Heckler's Veto to drive speakers with challenging ideas (or even politically incorrect resumes, such as Condoleeza Rice) away from what used to be revered as bastions of free speech and intellectual exploration.  The American student mind is increasingly not merely closed, but welded shut and surrounded by land mines.  As with all forms of thuggery, we're getting more of this because it works, as craven or sympathetic administrators buckle under to one whiny protest group after another.

FCC proposes not-entirely-neutral Net Neutrality rules

Hardcore "Net Neutrality" advocates won't be very happy with the rules proposed by the FCC today, since as Reuters reports, the rules "may let Internet service providers charge content companies for faster and more reliable delivery of their traffic to users." May 15, 2014 10:38 AM PT

A new chapter in the IRS scandal begins

Judicial Watch - the same folks who blew the Benghazi story wide open a few weeks ago, by securing "smoking gun" emails the Administration illegally concealed - just performed the same service for the IRS scandal.  They've got smoking-gun emails that conclusively prove the persecution of conservative groups was coordinated from Washington; the Administration's story about "low-level rogue employees in Cincinnati" is as phony as the "spontaneous video protest" crap they peddled about the Benghazi attack.

Hey, let's turn our streets into giant solar panels

One of the big drawbacks to solar energy is that it takes up a lot of square footage.  Enthusiasts are constantly looking for new places to stash solar panels, such as the expansive roofs of big-box retail stores - an initiative which President Obama recently congratulated Wal-Mart for supporting, to the consternation of Wal-Mart's union critics.

European court orders Google to erase history

Here's another reminder of why it's a really, really, really, really bad idea for the United States to surrender oversight of the Internet to some nebulous international body: Europe's highest court just ordered Google - and, by extension, other search providers - to erase history for anyone who wants to exercise their "right to be forgotten."

Iran declares victory in Syria

Sure, the Iranians are jerks, and they're given to making a lot of bloodcurdling threats and chest-thumping boasts.  But is what they're saying in this UK Guardian piece wrong? May 13, 2014 10:26 AM PT

Rand Paul versus Voter ID

Having previously suggested that the GOP might be pushing too hard for voter ID laws, likely 2016 presidential contender Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) went further in an interview with the New York Times while visiting Memphis this weekend: May 11, 2014 12:35 PM PT
