Biden commences his war on the suburbs

Biden commences his war on the suburbs

in , ,Joe Biden’s “infrastructure” bill isn’t about improving America’s roads, bridges, and other elements of our infrastructure.

He begins by providing the context:With the introduction of his massive, $2.3 trillion “infrastructure” bill, President Biden’s campaign to end suburban single-family zoning has begun.

Biden's radical agenda likely to hit wall

Biden's radical agenda likely to hit wall

in , , , ,Joe Biden, or whoever is pulling the strings, has an ambitious agenda. Too ambitious in a well-functioning democracy for a president who squeaked into the White House and whose party holds only half of the Senate seats. There is no mandate for the kind of sweeping change Biden and his handlers desire.One can debate whether ours is a well functioning democracy, but I hope it still functions well enough to prevent the kind of radical change the Democrats are pushing for. I believe it probably will, for the next two years at least.On the face of things, the filibuster is the obstacle...

Gov. Noem won't sign bill protecting female athletes

in , ,The South Dakota legislature passed a bill banning individuals who were male at birth from competing in girls’ and women’s sports, both at the high school and the college levels. However, Governor Kristi Noem has .Noem favors the ban as applied to high school sports, but not as applied to college. Accordingly, invoking her power to make style and form changes to the bill, Noem has, in effect, re-written it to excise the ban on biological men competing against women in college sports.According to , when the South Dakota makes style and form changes, as opposed to exercising veto power,...

Why we should hate 'hate crime' laws

Why we should hate 'hate crime' laws

in ,Consider two hypothetical criminal law defendants. Defendant A, a White, is accused of murdering six Asian sex workers. Defendant B, also White, is accused of murdering six White sex workers. Both sets of murders occurred in the same jurisdiction and were carried out in exactly the same manner.Should Defendant A be treated differently than Defendant B?Any unindoctrinated, fair-minded person would say that, of course, the two defendants should be treated the same. They should be charged with the same crimes, prosecuted by same office, permitted the same defenses, and if convicted,...

Don't investigate this

Don't investigate this

in , ,reports that “momentum is stalling amid congressional efforts to swiftly investigate the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.” Good.The Democrats want to use the riot for political purposes. They hope, with assistance from the always-obliging media, to present it as the tip of an insurrectionary iceberg spearheaded by hardcore Trump supporters.To this end, Nancy Pelosi favors a 9/11 style commission. She would like this small riot, in which only a handful of people died, to live in infamy the way the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, in which thousands of American perished, does.But comparing Jan....

The knives are out at the White House, and it didn't take long

The knives are out at the White House, and it didn't take long

inWith Neera Tanden’s nomination in serious trouble, the knives are out for Ron Klain, Joe Biden’s chief of staff. How do we know? Because of the leaking that drives this Washington Post article calledLeaking can be a subtle art, but not in this case. One of the leakers told the Post that the Tanden play “was Ron, Ron, Ron, Ron.”It’s normal for one or two initial high profile presidential nominees to fail. By this time in the Trump administration, Andy Puzder’s nomination for Secretary of Labor had already gone up in flames (a tragedy, in my view), even though the Republicans had greater...

Republicans looking to confirm Judge Barrett on or around Oct. 26

Republicans looking to confirm Judge Barrett on or around Oct. 26

in , ,reports that Senate Republicans are eyeing a final vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday, October 26 — less than a week from today. That timeline isn’t locked down, but Republicans are planning a rare weekend session that would set up a final vote early next week.My initial take was that Barrett probably wouldn’t be confirmed before the election (and probably not afterwards, either). I thought that Sens. Collins, Murkowski, and Romney would all oppose her confirmation, and that a random GOP Senator or two, with nothing to lose, would join them. I also...

Joe Biden and the Jews with trembling knees

Joe Biden and the Jews with trembling knees

in , ,Joe Biden, like his mentor Barack Obama, seems to get off on talking tough to Israeli leaders. In this guest post, Stephen Silbiger recalls an early instance of such behavior. He goes on to call out American Jewish leaders for their self-interested disregard of what a Biden administration would mean for Israel and its supporters.Stephen Silbiger was the chief legislative aide to Congressman Stephen J. Solarz of Brooklyn. He also was the lobbyist for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and was the Washington Representative for the American Jewish...

Princeton responds to the Department of Education's letter

in ,In a to Princeton’s president Christopher Eisgruber, the U.S. Department of Education has asked Princeton to explain how Eisgruber’s admissions of systemic, embedded, and damaging racism at the university can be reconciled with the university’s duty under federal law not to discriminate, and with its many past statements to the government and others that it doesn’t discriminate. I wrote about this development .Yesterday, Princeton issued about the Department of Education’s letter. Princeton stated:The letter was the Department’s reaction to President Eisgruber’s update to the University...
