IRS Backs Down on Strict Limits on Tax-Exempt Groups

As the IRS targeting scandal grew, in an effort to help the taxing agency put an end to political activism, government operatives decided it was necessary to put more limits on what tax-exempt organizations were allowed to do.

Dog Selected for Jury Duty

Considering the head-scratching verdicts reached by some juries, why not have a dog serve on jury duty? According to one New Jersey resident, that may happen now that his 5-year-old German Shepherd dog, IV, got a juror summons from the local county clerk. 15 Apr 2014, 1:42 PM PDT

Uncle Sam’s Bicoastal Tug of War: The Internet of Things vs. Too Big to Fail

By now, it’s a cliche that the Internet of Things is going to change everything. That’s right: Americans have barely had time to digest all the effects of the Internet, and now comes along the Internet of Things (IoT). If the Internet created a new order in cyberspace, then the IoT is going to create a new order in the physical world--or, as geeks call it, “meat space.” 15 Apr 2014, 12:01 PM PDT

Study: GOP Will Grow with More White Conservatives, Not Less

A new study suggests that politically unaffiliated white Americans who are experiencing a shift to minority status will feel threatened by that shift and subsequently embrace more conservative policies.

Pew Research Finds Democrats Losing Millennials

Barack Obama may be the Republicans' best friend when it comes to educating 18-33-year olds of the Millennial Generation about the downside of voting for the Democrats’ economic policies. According to a report from the Pew Research Center for Social and Demographic Trends, the 73.7 million Millennials are “unattached to organized politics and religion, linked by social media, burdened by debt, distrustful of people, in no rush to marry— and optimistic about the future.” 14 Apr 2014

Dueling Climate Reports

To borrow a telling phrase from their report, the UN sees nothing but “death, injury, and disrupted livelihoods” everywhere it looks—as do Senator Boxer, Secretary Kerry, and others. Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts demonstrates that life on Earth is not suffering from rising temperatures and atmospheric CO2 levels. Citing reams of real-world data, it offers solid scientific evidence that most plants actually flourish when exposed to both higher temperatures and greater CO2 concentrations. 14 Apr 2014

The 'No Electric Resiliency Cabal'

Last Thursday, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee convened what appeared to be a most timely--and much-needed--hearing. Its title was “Keeping the lights on: Are we doing enough to ensure the reliability and security of the electric grid?” Unfortunately, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, the answer we got from industry witnesses, regulators, and legislators alike was an unfounded, and profoundly misleading, “Yes.” 14 Apr 2014

New York Times: Obama Inspiring Young People to Become Consultants

President Barack Obama famously ran to inspire young Americans with his message of "hope and change," but the president's administration has been infamous for rewarding cronies (see: Solyndra) and punishing enemies (see: IRS).

The Worst Argument Ever For Jeb Vs. Hillary

Mark McKinnon, the former George W.

Inside The Fed--What Janet Yellen Won't Tell You

What is Janet Yellen, new Fed chairman, really worried about? Is it that reported unemployment will stay high, that the economic recovery will never get off the ground, that we will fall back into recession, or that consumer prices will fall, thereby further endangering the huge debts that already zombify the economy? 14 Apr 2014

The Intolerance of Brandeis

Intolerance of tolerance is certainly no virtue. But bowing to pressure from the intolerant is cowardly.

Hillary’s Man in the White House

Despite aborting their roundup and allowing “trespassing” cattle returned to the Bundy ranch in southern Nevada, the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently offered public statements claiming it would continue to pursue the ranchers in court.

Nevada Ranch War: Feds Right on Property, But Wrong on Constitution and Limited Government

Armed agents from the Obama administration are on the precipice of a potentially deadly confrontation with cattle ranchers in Nevada, in a grazing-rights dispute between Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management. The bottom line is that the feds are absolutely correct in their property-rights claim, but wrong on their violations of the First Amendment. Right or wrong--this situation risks spiraling out of control into deadly violence, fed in part by grassroots frustration over federal power. 13 Apr 2014
