John Stossel John Stossel: Immigration Is American

Jeff Jacoby Jeff Jacoby: DA's Abuse of Discretion Should be Condemned, not Cheered

PROSECUTORS ROUTINELY reduce criminal charges or waive them altogether. They agree to plea bargains. They settle misdemeanor cases in exchange for compensation to the victim. Under our legal system, the government's prosecuting attorneys have extraordinary leeway in deciding whom to prosecute, and for which offenses, and what punishment to seek.

Jonah Goldberg Jonah Goldberg: Obama is Rushing Into War Against Islamic State

By all means, let's destroy Islamic State, but let's talk about it first. We are in a very strange place right now. President Obama is rushing into a war he doesn't want to fight. He can barely bring himself to call it a war.

John Ransom John Ransom: Want to Buy a Company? Try Stealing One Instead

Bob Barr Bob Barr: In Defeating ISIS, We Must Not Defeat Ourselves

Terror is theater, New York Times columnist Roger Cohen wrote on Monday. Burning skyscrapers, severed heads: The terrorist takes movie images of unbearable lightness and gives them weight enough to embed themselves in the psyche. Over the weekend, ISIS, the newest terror kid on the block, posted another one of its beheading videos to the Internet, marking the third hostage to die in the organizations effort to send chills down the spine of the Western World.

Ben Shapiro Ben Shapiro: The Conversation We Won't Have About Raising Men

"This is behavior that is happening at the grassroots level that is born through years of our culture like raising men to want to not be like women and using language like 'sissy' and 'you throw like a girl' that demean women. ... [We need to focus on] really reprogramming how we raise men."

Austin Bay Austin Bay: Conditions Stalk Obama's Uncertain Coalition

President Barack Obama has declared, repeatedly, that U.S. ground troops will not have a combat mission in his war against the Islamic State. Last week, Obama ardently pledged that he would not be "dragged" into another Iraq ground war.

Christina Sandefur Christina Sandefur: Virginia's Worrying Look at Medicaid Expansion

Abusing the legislative process has become part and parcel of rolling out the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare). Since it became law in 2010, the Obama Administration has delayed, waived, or otherwise ignored key provisions of the Act over two dozen times.

Paul Greenberg Paul Greenberg: The Scottish Play

It's an old superstition among actors, who tend to avoid calling one of Shakespeare's tragedies by its name, which is supposed to invite disaster. It's like the way they avoid wishing each other good luck opening night lest they jinx it, preferring to say something like Break a Leg -- but here's hoping that Thursday's referendum on independence for Scotland will prove a flop, and a resounding one. So this issue can be settled definitively, and stay settled. Instead of being decided by the razor-thin margin some of the polls have predicted. So it won't hang around indefinitely, like Banquo's Ghost, showing up at the most inopportune times. Like now and forever. And the United Kingdom can stay united, Scots and Englishmen and the rest, all Britons together.

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: Hillary Clinton: A Profile In Failure

Jacob Sullum Jacob Sullum: Obama's Dumb, Rash and Unilateral War: Don't Buy the President's Lame Excuses for Attacking ISIS Without Congressional Approval

A few years ago, when President Obama unilaterally decided to get involved in Libya's civil war, he argued that he did not need approval from Congress because bombing military targets does not constitute "hostilities" under the War Powers Resolution. That argument was so laughable that even the war's supporters in Congress and the press, not to mention Obama's own Office of Legal Counsel, rejected it.

Michael Schaus Michael Schaus: In Defense of a Crony Capitalist

Ransom Notes Radio Ransom Notes Radio: The Fed is Getting Ready to Toy with the Market Again

The market is pretty schizophrenic nowadays And, really, why wouldnt it be? The data says our economy is less than stellar; but the Fed seems to think everything is spectacular. Sooner or later the truth catches up to investors, but in the meantime do you fight the Fed?

Rick Berman Rick Berman: Innovate Labor Relations

Its practically a clich to note that government just cant keep up with innovation in the private sector. Taxi commissions fight services like Uber, zoning boards ban food trucks, and federal regulations keep experimental drugs out of the hands of patients desperate to try them rather than die. So you should not be surprised to find that Americas labor lawslast seriously overhauled in the dying days of British rule in Indiaare well past their sell-by date. Backed by and fearing the wrath of powerful union bosses, politicians are unwilling to bring employee representation out of the Studebaker factory and into the iPhone world.

Mike Shedlock Mike Shedlock: Socialist Failure: French Government Faces Second No Confidence Vote in Six Months
