Florida State University President Thwarted Concealed Carry For Self-Defense On Campus

As news reports announced 31-year-old Florida State University alumnus Myron May drew a handgun and opened fire "in or near" the FSU library on November 20, one aspect of the story was conspicuously missing—namely, that FSU President John Thrasher played a key role in defeating a bill to allow students with concealed carry permits to carry guns on campus for self-defense. 21 Nov 2014

Blue State Blues: My Immigrant Father's Warning—'When Illegality Becomes the Law'

I am a legal immigrant. I did not choose to come to the United States—I was carried here, by my parents, who arrived with one suitcase and nothing else. They were not fleeing political oppression, religious persecution, or economic collapse. In fact, as white South Africans in the 1970s, they were born into a life of exclusive privilege and prosperity. My father had grown up poor but made his way to medical school. A life of wealth awaited. 21 Nov 2014

Many Amnestied Immigrants Could End Up Receiving Government Checks

President Barack Obama and his surrogates argue that the president’s executive actions will hold illegal immigrants accountable and force them to pay their “fair share of taxes.” However there is a big question as to whether these illegal immigrants will be a net gain or loss to the treasury. 21 Nov 2014

Boehner Files Lawsuit Over Obamacare

House Speaker John Boehner says The House of Representatives has filed a lawsuit over President Obama’s changes to Obamacare. “Time after time, the president has chosen to ignore the will of the American people and re-write federal law on his own without a vote of Congress.

The Importance of Federalism in America's Future

When an American president threatens to govern by Executive Order, he has really declared he will govern by arbitrary power: his will instead of the will of the people. We are witnesses to the subversion of popular government when the consent of the governed is an afterthought. Our Founders rejected arbitrary power and sought to prevent its reign on American soil. 21 Nov 2014

The Key to Practical Federalism Is You

The march towards a Hillary Clinton presidency seems inevitable, but Clinton continues to be her own greatest opponent.

A Republic, If We Can Keep It: The Founders vs. 'Emperor Obama'

As “Emperor Obama”—to cite a title applied to Barack Obama by House Speaker John Boehner, Senator Jeff Sessions, and others—proceeds with his plan to trample the Constitution by issuing an Executive Order on amnesty for illegals, perhaps it’s worth looking back to see how the authors of the Constitution might have reacted to such a crisis. 21 Nov 2014

Ferguson: From Amnesty to Anarchy

The media were agog Thursday with feigned outrage at the suggestion, made by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), that President Barack Obama's unconstitutional executive amnesty could lead to "anarchy" and "violence."

Obama: Kneel Before Zod

On Thursday night, President Obama delivered his address to the nation on his executive amnesty.

No Mention of 'Constitution' in Obama's Amnesty Speech

Congress Should Cancel the State of the Union Address in 2015

Congressional Republicans are searching for ways--short of impeachment or shutting down the government--to respond to President Barack Obama's seizure of arbitrary power over immigration law and enforcement.
