Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation, depend all human laws; that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these. — Sir William Blackstone, 18th Century English jurist, author of Commentaries on the Laws of England

Boehner Border Bill Bites the Dust

Robert Romano

Failing to get the 217 votes needed to pass, Republican leaders on July 31 pulled the $659 million border supplemental off the floor of the House Representatives. Republicans opposed the measure as doing nothing to secure the border or prevent the White House from taking yet more executive actions to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.

Robert Romano

The nation was taken by surprise on July 28 by an Associated Press (AP) report stating that the Obama administration was planning to arbitrarily implement executive action that could suspend most deportations, grant legal status to millions presently here illegally, and excuse visa overstays.

Further Expansion of Eminent Domain

Robert Romano

At issue is a proposal by the city of Richmond to seize securities backing mortgage loans that are worth less than homes were purchased for under eminent domain, and then rework the loan to the homeowner secured via separate, private financing. Bondholders would take significant losses on the mortgages, being unable to recover the original principal of the loans.

GOP Adding More to the Welfare Rolls?

Robert Romano

This is welfare reform? The way out of poverty? Have Paul Ryan and House Republicans given up on creating jobs? Do they accept the new normal of slow growth and therefore the necessity of an ever-expanding welfare state?

Chief Justice Roberts on ObamaCare: What Will He Do?

Robert Romano

With the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals issuing contradictory rulings on the question of whether Obamacare exchange subsidies can be given in states that decided to not set up their own exchanges under an IRS regulation, it appears all but inevitable that the case will ultimately wind up in the Supreme Court.

ObamaCare, Intended and Unintended Consequences

Robert Romano

The Halbig v. Burwell decision found that Obamacare exchange subsidies cannot be given in states that decided to not set up their own exchanges under an IRS regulation. When the D.C. Circuit Court rules on this issue in full, and the Supreme Court gets a crack at it, it is not up to judges to allow an agency to rewrite a law to suit its implementation, or to rewrite it themselves.

Rush Was Right: The War on the Suburbs

Robert Romano

“What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?” That was national radio talk show superhost Rush Limbaugh commenting on a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.”

HUD Plan to Resettle Millions of Illegal Aliens in Your Community

Robert Romano

Under a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” we find a plan to resettle as many as 20 million illegal immigrants in specific communities as a pretext to tilt the political scales on the national and local political scenes to favor Democrats.

IRS Email Subpoenas Expanding

Robert Romano

On June 27, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) expanded its search for the missing Internal Revenue Service (IRS) emails relevant to the targeting of the tea party and other 501(c)(4) organizations. To that end, Camp and Boustany are subpoenaing the missing IRS emails to other federal offices, including the White House.

Democrats Deliver for ‘Republican’ Cochran

Robert Romano

It is often said that politics makes for strange bedfellows. But it can also make for messy divorces. Case in point, the closely contested Mississippi Senate Republican primary, where 36-year incumbent Thad Cochran narrowly defeated conservative challenger Chris McDaniel...with the help of thousands of Democrats.

A Nation of Law, or a Nation of Anarchy?

Bill Wilson

Do we live in a nation of laws enacted by our duly elected representatives? Or do we live in a country in which a handful of elites can do as they please with no regard to those laws — or due process for those affected by them? This is the central question the U.S. Supreme Court must answer in the wake of Halbig v. Burrell — the court case that could derail Barack Obama's socialized medicine monstrosity once and for all.

Check and Mate

Dr. Robert R. Owens

According to Zach Taylor, an outspoken former Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent who is the chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, “As the government allocates resources to South Texas, it is systematically leaving areas within the U.S., as well as vast swaths of land along the border, unguarded.” Taylor continues, “This gives people that are trying to get their infrastructure, their personnel, their drugs, their dirty bombs, their biological weapons, their chemical weapons into the United States without being noticed” the opportunity to do so, “because this part of the border is open, it is not being controlled.”

SOS: Speaking of Seniors – Get More for Your Money

Woodrow Wilcox

So many senior citizens tell me about their money troubles that I’m always on the lookout for ways that seniors can make or save money. So, when I had chance to attend the REI EXPO in Schaumburg recently, I did so. I was not disappointed. I have been to many expos and seminar events. The REI EXPO was the best organized and best managed seminar event that I have ever attended. It was organized by REI EXPO from Kansas City, Missouri

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
