Terence P. Jeffrey: Obama Claims Power To Make Illegal Immigrants Eligible For Social Security And Disability

Democrat vote-buying 101.  Does the president of the United States have the power to unilaterally tell millions of individuals who are violating federal law that he will not enforce that law against them now, that they may continue to violate that law in the future and that he will take action that makes them eligible for federal benefit programs for which  ...

A. Barton Hinkle: Coming Out of the Drug War Haze?

Cautious optimism may be appropriate. President Obama's recent speech on the opioid overdose epidemic offers a ray of hope that the country's approach to drugs might one day adopt what has been called the first rule of American business: When all else fails, try doing it right. Noting with considerable understatement that "treatment is    ... MORE

Obama's ‘Catch & Release’ Policy Fuels Illegal Immigration

by Kristian Hernandez.    Officials last week spoke up about the Obama administration’s so-called “catch and release” policies blamed for hindering Border Patrol operations and encouraging illegal crossers from coming into the United States. A recent letter from the National Border Patrol Council states a high-ranking member of the Obama    ... MORE

Stephanie Slade: 'Drug Users Need Treatment,' Says President Obama. Not So Fast, Says Dr. Carl Hart

The vast majority of drug users are not addicts.  "For too long we've viewed drug addiction through the lens of criminal justice," President Obama said yesterday at a conference in Atlanta. "The most important thing to do is reduce demand. And the only way to do that is to provide treatment—to see it as a public health problem and not a  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Supreme Hypocrisy

Politics as usual.  If there is one thing that is bipartisan in Washington, it is brazen hypocrisy. Currently there is much indignation being expressed by Democrats because the Republican-controlled Senate refuses to hold confirmation hearings on President Obama's nominee to the Supreme Court, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Justice Antonin ...

Nicole Duran: Obama Says More More More To Refugees

Who cares they can't be vetted?   In a brief Easter weekend radio address, President Obama vowed to decimate the self-proclaimed Islamic State, but he said the United States will do so by offering an example of freedom, tolerance and open society. "Our openness to refugees fleeing ISIL's violence; our determination to win the battle against ISIL's  ... MORE

Obama's Feckless Defense Of Human Rights In Cuba

by Nat Hentoff & Nick Hentoff.   On January 8, the Associated Press reported that President Barack Obama “may travel to Cuba as early as this spring if he feels the rights situation here is improving and a presidential trip will help.” The Castro dictatorship’s response was immediate and severe. According to Elizardo Sanchez, the president of the      ... MORE

John Stossel: The Art Of Trump

Hooray for Donald Trump!   I can ice skate in Central Park because Trump got the skating rink fixed after New York City couldn't. Couldn't, you ask? Really? How is that possible? New York City government couldn't fix an ice rink? Sad, but true. Despite six years of effort and fiddling with 13 million taxpayer dollars, government's bureaucracy was unable  ... MORE

IBDaily Editorial: Obama's False Equivalency

1776 wasn’t anything like Castro’s 1959 Putsch. In one of his last acts in Havana, President Obama threw out a false equivalency between the American Revolution and Cuba’s 1959 communist takeover. What are we to make of a U.S. president who embraces such hoary Marxist equivalencies? In his Tuesday address to the Cuban people,   ... MORE

Obama And The Justice Dept. May Be Losing The P.R. Battle Over Encryption, But Watch The Larger War

by Scott Shackford.   Nobody believes it’s ‘just one phone.’   The government fight to access your private digital data has another front brewing. The Department of Justice wants to be able to listen in on conversations on WhatsApp, an encrypted messaging and phone service owned by Facebook. Everybody who knows anything about       ... MORE

Obama Advocates Government Access To All Devices

by Jeff Mason.    No surprise that privacy invasion is the tyrant's choice. U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday made a passionate case for mobile devices to be built in such a way as to allow government to gain access to personal data if needed to prevent a terrorist attack or enforce tax laws. Speaking at the South by Southwest festival in Texas, Obama   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Random Thoughts On The Passing Scene

Sparks of brilliance!        The presidential election prospects for the Democrats are so bad this year that only the Republicans can save them — as Republicans have saved them before.  Will a Supreme Court without a single Protestant justice rule that an "under-representation" of any group is evidence of discrimination?  Here is a trick question: What        ...

Protesting Donald Trump Is Now A Federal Crime

by Anthony L. Fisher.     The state of free speech in America. The Orwellian-named "free speech zones" on college campus and political rallies are nothing new to regular readers of Reason, and suppressing political dissent with the brute force of government has been a feature of the American system since shortly after 9/11/01, when the     ...

Victor Davis Hanson: Obama - The Lamest Duck

He has neither the power to act or inspire.    President Obama is boxed in a state of paralysis—more so than typical lame-duck presidents. His hard-left politics have insidiously eroded the Democratic Party, which has lost both houses of Congress and the vast majority of the state legislatures, state elected offices, and governorships.   ...

Obama To Trash Reagan’s Restrictions On Domestic Spying

by Chriss W. Street.     A tyrant's sneaky misdirection play. With the pubic distracted by the FBI battling Apple for an iPhone backdoor, President Obama is secretly working to trash President Ronald Reagan’s restrictions on the number of federal agencies that can spy on Americans and others. At a secret meeting of the United States National   ... MORE
