David Harsanyi: Obama's Legacy Is Executive Abuse

Governing without Congress.     Over the winter break, I finally got around to binge-watching Parks and Recreation. In case you missed the show's seven-year run, it's about a fascistic small-town councilwoman who believes it's a politician's job to impose her notions of morality, safety and decency on everyone, no matter what voters want or what      ...

Our Presidents Are Beginning To Act Like Kings

by Charles C. W. Cooke.        If the passage of time were a reliable guarantor of increasing human freedom, we would expect history to look a little different than it does.

Andrew Napolitano: An Unconscionable Silence

Our cowardly Congress.     The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing.
