While acknowledging the legitimacy of their message, Bill Maher lambasted Occupiers Friday night for their strategic and tactical nonsense. He might have also mentioned that insisting on the “right” to monopolize land that was intended to be shared with others, is a legal and moral affront. Occupiers often tout the importance of reaching a consensus [...]
Chris Francescani’s otherwise solid Reuters article about George Zimmerman, with previously undisclosed and illuminating background info, is marred by the baseless assertion that Zimmerman “disregarded police advice against pursuing Martin.” Actually, there’s no known evidence that Zimmerman continued to follow Martin after the police dispatcher “suggested” he halt, but the lynch mob has brainwashed a lot of people into perceiving fiction as fact.
Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke is a modern woman who ably reaffirms that it’s not sinful for females to enjoy sex out of wedlock. Rush Limbaugh clings to the opposite and very outdated notion that such behavior is steeped in shame. He deserves to be mocked rather than taken seriously, but it’s self-defeating for Limbaugh’s critics to overreact to his disparagement of Fluke, because it breathes life into the very misconception they wish to expunge.
As the constitutional challenge to Obamacare heads to the Supreme Court, let’s not forget that before his DOJ lawyers began claiming the individual mandate is a tax, our president (aka the Great Constitutional Scholar) told George Stephanopoulos and the nation it’s not a tax.

As is their wont, devotees of presidential candidate Ron Paul made their presence known on January 15 at the Three Kings Day Parade in Miami, an annual event that draws thousands of spectators. When one of them held up a sign touting their favorite candidate in front of a local Univision TV camera, the crew [...]
Inspired by the Occupy movement, the Justice Party of California seeks to advance the lapsed ideals of justice and equity by means of authentic participatory democracy. Voters are encouraged to register without delay, and begin shaping the party’s future by co-creating its bylaws. In a recent phone interview, ballot access expert Richard Winger explained why the Justice Party of California is likely to prevail if, as expected, it sues for an extension on the deadline to attract the 103,000 members needed to qualify for the ballot. More news on the legal front is coming soon.
Former investigative journalist Viveca Novak, now the editorial and communications director at the Center for Responsive Politics, joined us yesterday. Her fascinating article about James Bopp, the controversial plaintiff’s attorney who originally filed the Citizens United lawsuit, depicts her subject as more committed to the First Amendment than to the Republican Party: “Though he’s socially [...]
In this episode, I lay out my argument as to why the Citizens United case was decided correctly. (Click here to read an article I wrote in 2010 about how liberals overreacted to the decision.) Although preventing corruption is a legitimate governmental interest, restricting what people spend to express opinions cannot possibly level the playing [...]
