While John Boehner’s budget disaster made all of the headlines last week, he and his Washington-insider buddies were busy dismantling the Constitution–specifically that pesky part that deals with the right of Americans to be free from unreasonable search and seizure (the Fourth Amendment)–granting the National Security Agency broad new powers to collect phone and email communications from anyone they feel like without a warrant. They can share the data with the FBI and foreign governments. They can also keep these records indefinitely. According to Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the bill “grants the executive branch virtually unlimited access to the communications of every American.” Let’s…

Media Liberated by Red Army

Adelbert C. “Del” Marsh, a Republican who refers to himself as a “conservative champion,” is a member of Alabama’s state Senate. He’s also an individual who apparently feels that the constitutional protections of our freedom of speech and freedom of the press should no longer apply if you are someone who covers Alabama politics. In a recent editorial to the Montgomery Advertiser, Mr. Marsh called for government bureaucrats to be given the authority to “license” journalists who cover local politics in order to protect citizens—read politicians—from “shady, fly-by-night websites offering purposely skewed and inaccurate interpretations of hard news.” “I recently asked…

We remember the thousands of innocent lives that were lost and the billions of dollars lost in economic damage. As great and tragic as these losses were, there was another loss that is proving to be the greatest loss of all. Because it was…

Porker of the Month

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) honored Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) as its March Porker of the Month for her support of a parochial pet project involving the construction of a 38-mile dead-end  “Road to Nowhere.” Sen. Murkowski has personally, and so far unsuccessfully, campaigned for a road to connect salmon canneries in King Cove with the neighboring Cold Bay and its airport. In a March 11, 2014 Los Angeles Times op-ed, former Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt described the original push for the project.  In the 1990s, Sen. Murkowski’s father, former Alaska Senator Frank Murkowski (R),…
