The Federal Government Is Not a State, and ESEA Does Not Give Arne Duncan Mandate Authority

by Michael J. Petrillivia Education Next
Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Yesterday’s big news (regarding ObamaCare’s subsidies in states with federal exchanges) is that the judiciary actually expects the executive branch to pay attention to the clear language of laws passed by the legislature. (Update: At least, the D.C. circuit does.) That this lesson in Civics 101 is news at all tells you something about the disrespect the Obama administration has shown to our Constitutional system.

by James W. Ceaservia The Weekly Standard
Tuesday, July 22, 2014

There are no copyrights on book titles. F. H. Buckley nevertheless shows remarkable audacity in borrowing The Once and Future King from T. H. White’s children’s classic, published in 1958. White enchanted his readers with a fantasy based on the Arthurian legend, replete with swords and sorcery, while Buckley has given us a sobering account of the transformation of the American presidency into an elective monarchy.

Friday, July 18, 2014

The government is taking away the rights of citizens to control their own income, says Stanford University economist Michael Boskin. "Property rights and the rule of law are essential foundations for a vibrant economy," he writes in The Wall Street Journal. "When they are threatened, or uncertain, the result is inefficiency, rent-seeking, a larger underground economy and capital flight."
