The story notes “Republicans got more votes yesterday in GA-06 than Democrats and unaffiliateds combined — even after the air-dropping of $8.3 million into Jon Ossoff’s campaign. Perez and the DNC had a huge organizational advantage and the normal opportunities afforded in special elections, and still couldn’t pull off the steal” (Hot Air). The incredible moment Ossoff is confronted with the fact that he doesn’t live in the district he seeks to represent (YouTube). A look at how Democrats overplayed their hand (Washington Examiner). Another story claims it went as predicted (National Review). Karl Rove explains why both sides should be concerned (WSJ). The results made Alyssa Milano “want to puke” (Breitbart).Read More »
Charlie Gard is fighting for his life.
Tiny Charlie is eight months old and battling a rare disorder called mitochondrial depletion syndrome. His muscles are deteriorating and he is fed through a tube.
Recently, a judge it the United Kingdom ruled that Charlie should be taken off of life support. Judge Francis decreed that “parents have parental responsibility” but that “overriding control is vested in the court.” It was in the “best interests” of Charlie that his costly care be shut down.
These words from a Western judge should chill the blood of every citizen. The government does not have—or at least should not have—“overriding control” of children. Fathers and mothers are ultimately responsible for their kids, not bureaucrats. The family, not the government, is the foundational unit of society.
We parents must not sleep in advocating for our children. We cannot hands our kids over to officials. We must fight for them, love them, and defend them—whatever the cost.
The appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court was President Trump’s greatest achievement in his first 100 days in office.
Now there are 20 vacancies on the federal circuit courts of appeals and hundreds on the district and special courts, but a huge obstacle stands in the way of the Senate confirmation process: the so-called “blue slip.”
The blue slip is sent to the senators from the home state of every judicial nominee, allowing those senators to approve or veto the nominee.
The blue slip isn’t a law, and it would be anathema to our Constitutional framers. It’s a leftover of decades past, a means by which individual senators could control their region’s judicial future.
It will be up to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley to seal his place in Senate history as a deeply committed constitutionalist.
If Grassley rids the Senate of the practice forever, his place in the chamber’s history will be secured as a leader who sought to rebalance the institution’s practices in alignment with the framer’s intentions.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/318323165″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]

Where is international law when you need it? The Syrian government has again used chemical weapons on its own people, despite signing the international convention banning chemical weapons as well as a specific agreement to destroy them.
So why is this still happening? It’s one thing for countries to sign treaties but, if they turn out to be against their interest, they simply violate them later. Unfortunately there is very little enforcement of international law. The U.N. Security Council is usually blocked from acting by the veto of one or more of its permanent members.
So the U.S. is left to come to the rescue of international law and the Syrian people. One could question one nation taking it upon itself to enforce a treaty, but the soft nature of international law has never been strong on enforcement. It also doesn’t stop unilateral enforcement either if there’s a consensus that such action is appropriate.
Stay tuned, the legal questions are likely to get more complicated in Syria.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/318118022″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
