Eziekiel Emanuel

If Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel doesn’t die by age 75, should he get the Death Panel?

Posted by  ▪  September 28, 2014

Says age 75 the perfect age to die for society’s sake — so should society have a say in it?

Remember when the left scoffed at Sarah Palin for pointing out that Obamacare would lead to rationing and death panels? Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who was involved in the creation of Obamacare, doesn’t. In case you missed it, Dr. Emanuel recently penned a ghoulish piece for The Atlantic in which he said that he…

Media missing in action on Fast and Furious

Posted by  ▪  September 27, 2014

Sharyl Attkisson: “We should all be embarrassed.”

Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few journalists working today who clearly puts her profession above partisan politics. She recently appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, DC to discuss the Fast and Furious scandal and others as well as the media’s refusal to aggressively report these stories.

When you think of Eric Holder, please remember Elian Gonzalez

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2014

Don’t let that pre-Attorney General debacle go down the memory hole.

As we count down Eric Holder’s greatest hits, the first image that comes to the mind of many Americans isn’t that of Brian Terry, or of Black Panthers outside polling places, but of a screaming child staring down the barrel of a rifle. On April 22, 2000, just before dawn, U.S federal…

The ISIS Barbarians within the Arab world’s gates now rule the day.

Mahmoud Abbas showed his hand today at the U.N., accusing Israel of genocide, getting a predictable reaction, via Times of Israel: In his address, Abbas accused Israel of committing genocide in its recent conflict with terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip — calling 2014 “a year of a new war of genocide perpetrated…

From Going Postal to Going ISIS

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2014

Are we entering the age of beheadings?

A woman was beheaded by a fired co-worker, who recently had been trying to convert co-workers to Islam. Because the ISIS beheadings are so much in the news, one has to wonder if the perp was motivated by those beheadings, as opposed to “going postal” and using a firearm or…

Full 7th Circuit Appeals Court refuses to stop Wisconsin Voter I.D. law

Posted by  ▪  September 26, 2014

Voter ID law in full effect for November, unless Supreme Court intervenes.

We previously reported how a panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals restored Wisconsin’s Voter I.D. law for the November election. The opponents of the law sought full “en banc” review by the entire Court of Appeals. That request was denied by a divided court (h/t Ann Althouse): The full 7th…

Brian Leiter is the pugnacious U. Chicago philosophy and law professor, whose claim to fame is his blog ranking of philosophy departments, and to a much lesser extent, law schools.  We touched on Leiter before with regard to his attacks on Prof. Glenn Reynolds and other “right-wing” law professor bloggers with whom…
