Who Will Hold the IRS Accountable?

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Under the framework of the founders, the people are masters, not servants, and the IRS holds no bondage on their freedoms. Congress must at long last investigate fully the IRS’s out-of-control investigators. Instead of wasting time on the fashions of the moment, Congress should deliver to the forgotten the protection that the Constitution promises them.

America’s Biggest Lawbreaker versus Donald Trump

As we wrote in The Law That Governs Government, efforts by bureaucrats within the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, and even the Justice Department and national security infrastructure to undermine the Trump administration are signs that the administrative state is openly hostile to the constitutional rule of law.

Leaky John Brennan

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Brennan and his leakers see no irony in becoming what they once opposed. In the 1970s, they cheered as the Church committee castigated the CIA for breaking laws. Now they use the CIA for their own dark arts and receive applause from ACLU-style liberals. They have gone from voting for communists to taping Russians, from fearing the unaccountable power of the system to wielding it shamelessly.

Suddenly, Friendly Reporters Are Offensive

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Over the last eight years, the press was never interested in making trouble for Obama. Instead, it projected the opposite. He was "scandal-free." If he had trouble, it didn't come from a rough press conference. It emerged from evil Republicans who were plotting.

Why Tech Giants Joined The Red – Green Axis Against Trump

Tech firms aren’t opposing President Trump’s immigration orders to defend the rule of law, quite the opposite, they have joined forces with the radical Left because they are the primary beneficiaries of the kind of crony capitalism that Donald Trump has promised to end, and joining the Red – Green Axis provides them with the shock troops in the streets that they need to protect their power and profits.

Conservatives to Mitch McConnell: Confirm Attorney General Jeff Sessions NOW

Democrats announced long ago that they wouldn't vote to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, and broke all the traditional rules of Senate decorum and comity in opposing him on a very personal level – their delaying tactics are owed no deference. We urge CHQ readers to use the Capitol Switchboard toll free line (1-866-220-0044) to contact the Judiciary Committee, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to demand Jeff Sessions be confirmed immediately.

Kuwait Needs Economic Reform, But Democracy May Say No

Kuwait is one of the freest nations in the Persian Gulf, as well as one of America’s best friends. Yet its “liberalish” governance, as one Kuwaiti colleague described it, ironically impedes the adoption of market-oriented economic reforms necessary for the country’s prosperity.

President Trump Stops Suicidal Immigration Policy – Left Goes Nuts

Those who oppose President Trump’s temporary ban on immigration from terrorist hotspots want Americans to forget that it targets, based on our experience with Muslim terrorists, the exact individuals who are most likely to be terrorists and have ties to Sharia-based jihad.

How President Trump Can Halt Obama's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Program

President Donald Trump, acting on his own can easily incapacitate AFFH until incoming Secretary Ben Carson can coordinate with Congress to fully eliminate the threat.  Even if Dr. Carson's confirmation takes months!

Bureaucrats Bring 500 Refugees Into Country One Day Before Trump’s Expected Ban

Michael Patrick Leahy, Breitbart

The temporary ban on refugees will be one of several executive orders on immigration President Trump will sign on Wednesday, Reuters reports. “Another order will block visas being issued to anyone from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, said the aides and experts, who asked not to be identified.” Two hundred and twenty-six of the 500 refugees resettled in the United States on Tuesday, or 44 percent, came from six of those seven countries.

Saul Alinsky Leaves the White House

Quin Hillyer, The American Spectator

The world is a much more parlous place because of Obama’s legacy. He entered office on an Alinskyite power trip, wanting to completely transform America. He failed at that, thank goodness, but he did succeed in weakening this great nation.

Obama and the hope that failed

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

The longer Obama was in office, the more he grew tired of conservatives frustrating his objectives and obstructing his policy goals. There's nothing wrong with being a man of conviction. But ultimately, outside of any policy issue, that is one of the reasons Obama's presidency has failed to live up to expectations even though a majority of Americans are still favorably disposed to him as a person.

By Any Means Necessary

The Inauguration Day demonstrations can serve as an object lesson for many Americans. First, they will give us a good picture of the bullet we dodged, the type of PC-induced intolerance that would have been more broadly infused into America had Hillary Clinton won the presidency. Second, we’ll get a really good inspection of what political correctness looks like in its more advanced stage—after it’s morphed literally into mob behavior.

Obama: The Arrogance of Failure

President Obama is the most unaccomplished man to ever hold the office and has been given an eight-year free pass and never held to account for his failures; while Donald J. Trump hasn't even been sworn in and is already a human pinata for the snowflake right and the radical left.

Obama’s ‘Scandal-Free Administration’ Is a Myth

John Fund and Hans Von Spakovsky, Wall Street Journal

In reality, Mr. Obama has presided over some of the worst scandals of any president in recent decades. The president’s journalistic allies are happily echoing the “scandal-free” myth. Time’s Joe Klein claims Mr. Obama has had “absolutely no hint of scandal” in his presidency. The media’s failure to cover the Obama administration critically has been a scandal in itself—but at least the president can’t be blamed for that one.

Montenegro Doesn’t Belong In NATO

Montenegro is a quaint, but geopolitically irrelevant. Balkan state. If Montenegro's admission to NATO is approved by the full Senate, Americans will have yet another essentially useless defense dependent, this one a corrupt, long-time gangster state.

Gee, I’m Starting to Think the Obama DOJ Just Might Be Politicized

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

They took extraordinary measures in a shaky case involving Trump but refused to help FBI investigations involving Hillary and the DNC. You’d almost think the Obama Justice Department makes enforcement decisions based on partisan politics.

Obama Fades Away As Trump Laughs At His Enemies

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

As President Feckless packs his junk and goes away, he leaves a smoldering ruin of a party, an elite fearfully clutching at its fading power, and the potential for splitting the country in two. His legacy of failure and his contempt for normal Americans has ensured that in his place will be a president committed to ruthless conservative change and who won’t sit back and just passively suck up attacks from the cultural hacks. Donald Trump and a conservative Supreme Court are your legacy, Barack Obama. Good riddance, and welcome aboard the solar-powered high-speed rail express train to Karmatown.

Trump vs the Cult of Political Correctness

When we look at this week’s protests during the Trump -- Pence inauguration and their potential for violence we need to see most protesters for what they are; victims of Far-Left propaganda and the cult of political correctness.
