Law vs. the higher justice

Kevin Williamson over at NRO makes a couple of important observations concerning rancher Cliven Bundy and his faceoff with the Bureau of Land Management. In a nutshell, (1) Bundy was violating the law, and (2) good on him!
I myself am of the view that there is a great deal of real estate between complete submission and civil war, and that acts such as Mr. Bundy’s are not only bearable in a free republic but positively salubrious.

Eric Holder may be on to something

Attorney General Eric Holder is calling for more government funding because of a rise in shooting incidents.

Yeah, I’ve noticed that that seems to be something of a problem the last couple of years.

Mary Landrieu plays “let’s pretend”

The senator’s latest campaign video includes all you’ve come to expect from Washington: fake arguments, fake news, fake staffers and fake constituents.

Don't delay, go today

"Michael Bloomberg: 'I Have Earned My Place in Heaven'".

I guess the Koch brothers are only partly evil

Only if they both somehow managed to lose

“Why Hillary vs Jeb would be great for America”.

Caution: The linked article contains dangerous levels of unadulterated folderol and raw bovine excrement. But then , it is the Daily Beast, and the author, Mark McKinnon, is a virtual caricature of a RINO.

Dude. You can't cover up a head-tilt with a cowboy hat.

Assortment (things-that-slither-from-underneath-a-rock edition)

Baksheesh – Obama style.

My recollection is that we fought a revolution over one tax. Obama has proposed 442.

Vote for Democrats, get higher taxes. Californians rinse and repeat (and rinse and repeat and rinse and repeat, etc., etc.)

If the U.S. government ever dusts off the “axis of evil” designation for future use, it should include Pakistan the next time around.

If, as someone once wrote, the Democrats are a criminal conspiracy masquerading as a political party, then John Podesta is arguably its consigliere.

Meanwhile, brother Tony Podesta – another Beltway political gangster – deleverages his conjugal status.

The American Spectator wades through a deep pool of candidates for its Enemy of the Week selection.

Prosecutors in Wisconsin are learning what it’s like to be defendants.

“We can’t have, in America, people that violate the law and just walk away from it. So it’s not over", says honest Harry Reid.
