Cook County president Toni Preckwinkle has been on a mission to punish legal gunowners of late. Preckwinkle, a mentor to President Obama, made headlines earlier this year when she said that “Reagan deserves a special place in hell.”

I have expressed my frustration with those who see some salvation in the supposed advancement of constitutional federalism in the ruling by Chief Justice Roberts and the four conservative dissenters that the Commerce and Necessary and Proper Clauses did not justify forcing people into commerce.

Those rulings arguably were not essential to...

Elizabeth Warren already laid claim to being the first nursing mother to take the New Jersey Bar exam, an unverifiable and likely untrue claim:

Now, despite all the facts the contrary, Warren is claiming that if elected she will be the first Native American Senator from Massachusetts:

There is something pathological in Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to acklowledge that she is not Native American.

When confronted with the fact that real Cherokees have traced her maternal lineage back to the great-great-great grandparent level and found no Native American ancestry, Warren ignores the facts and plays victim:

I get the feeling that Elizabeth Warren is heading for an Edmund Muskie moment completely of her own making, unless those close to her step in soon.

I don’t expect Warren to take advice from her political opponents, but she just can’t seem to take good advice even from her political friends.

Once society decides that one-man, one-woman no longer is the “arbitrary” standard, on what rational basis do we stop at one-and-one?

I previously posted about The Culture of Jumping To Conclusions At Widener Law School, including allegations by Widener law school professor Lawrence Connell that Widener Dean Linda Ammons falsely accused Connell of racism and sexism, and of engaging in threatening behavior by using a hypothetical example in criminal law class involving an attack on the Dean.

Not Tea Partiers, gun nuts, wingnuts, NASCAR dads and moms, or bitter clingers.

Not loony-lefties, nutroots, socialist revolutionaries, or Kos-sacks.

No, there is a gathering crowd with a thirst for revenge, who will not be satisfied unless and until we get on the Supreme Court…. (wait for it) …. diversity of law schools.

Barack Obama campaigned on the theme of a new era of transparency. Obama used that theme as a justification for the release of four highly classified internal Justice Department memos detailing strategies for interrogation of alQaeda detainees, over the objections of Obama’s own Director of the CIA.

We are in the process of nationalizing and/or federalizing vast stretches of our economy, including the auto industry, banks, and health care. Individual property rights have taken a back seat to political priorities.

I am against this trampling of individual property rights, which are the foundation of our democracy. But if it...
