September 13, 2022 by

2

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Is COVID-19 still an emergency? If you want a straight answer, don’t ask President Joe Biden. His answer changes as it suits his political agenda. COVID-19 infections and deaths are low, vaccination rates are high, and treatments are widely available. In other words, we’re in a much different place than we […]

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ In the still dark hours of Wednesday morning, a man armed with a gun, a knife, and burglary tools was arrested outside Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home.

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Imagine that a friend of yours wants to lose 10 pounds. You might advise your friend to diet, avoid unhealthy foods, and exercise more. You might even offer some unconventional tips, like sleeping regularly or keeping a daily gratitude journal. But what if you went to all the stores in your […]

Who Suffers The Most From America’s Crime Wave?

April 13, 2022 by

1

By GianCarlo Canaparo and Abby Kassal ~ Violent crime, like the price of gas, is rising. Not everyone is experiencing this crime wave in the same way. For some, it’s a distant issue experienced by other people somewhere else. For others, it’s a daily life-threatening concern. We parsed the FBI’s crime data from 2011 to […]

Biden Throttled US Energy Production When We Needed It Most

March 18, 2022 by

2

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ A capable presidential administration plans, anticipates, and implements strategies. An ineffective administration bounces haphazardly from crisis to crisis. It’s the difference between playing chess and playing pinball. President Joe Biden’s mismanagement of skyrocketing gas prices gives us a hint as to what game he’s playing. Gas prices, already high and rising […]

October 29, 2021 by

0

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Democrats have proposed partly funding some of their multitrillion-dollar spending plan with a tax on the “unrealized capital gains” of anyone who makes more than $100 million per year or is worth at least $1 billion. That proposed tax is likely unconstitutional. To understand why, we first must understand how such […]

August 9, 2021 by

1

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Twenty-two of the Texas Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C, to prevent a quorum in the state House have filed a lawsuit in federal court against Gov. Greg Abbott. The lawsuit, which two of the twenty-two Democrats are disputing they signed onto, is embarrassingly bad. The complaint does not include the usual […]

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Three Republican members of Congress filed a lawsuit against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Tuesday after she enforced a mask mandate against them.

The Triumph Of Justice Amy Coney Barrett

October 27, 2020 by

By GianCarlo Canaparo and John G. Malcolm ~ “There is a tendency in our profession,” Judge Amy Coney Barrett declared at the outset of her Senate confirmation hearing, “to treat the practice of law as all-consuming, while losing sight of everything else.” But, Barrett added in her Oct. 12 opening statement, “I never let the […]

Fear Not The Catholic Justice

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Even before President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, Barrett’s religious views came under fire from prominent progressives. If this sounds familiar, it’s because these same people used this same line of attack in a failed attempt to derail Barrett’s […]

By Cully Stimson and GianCarlo Canaparo ~ A federal district court judge ruled last week that several of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 restrictions were unconstitutional—and for good reason. Judge William Stickman IV’s development of the factual record, and his journeyman approach to the opinion, is a model for other judges to follow. What’s the best way for […]

Senate Democrats Are Trying To Play Games With The Courts. The Courts Should Refuse To Play

July 25, 2020 by

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ “The less you say, the better.” That was the advice I received from the judge I clerked for about orders on motions for recusal. This is good advice that 11th Circuit Judges Barbara Lagoa and Robert Luck should heed before responding to Senate Democrats’ astonishing political attack on their judicial independence. […]

AOC Gets Caught Gaslighting About New York’s Rising Violent Crime

July 16, 2020 by

2

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ An astonishing increase in violent crime is ravaging New York City, and some politicians, particularly Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., are offering false explanations instead of taking a serious look at the cause. This does a cruel disservice to the people they were elected to represent—particularly the victims and their families. Davell […]

On June 8, protesters occupied and barricaded the six blocks surrounding it. They have since named their territory the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. The protesters have now published a […]

Little Of Pelosi’s Wish List Made It Into COVID-19 Relief Bill. That’s A Relief In Itself.

By GianCarlo Canaparo ~ On Friday, the House passed the massive $2 trillion-plus coronavirus relief package that the Senate had passed on Wednesday. There’s a lot in those 880 pages, and much of it is problematic: The bill is neither targeted and temporary, nor directed exclusively at the coronavirus—as scholars at The Heritage Foundation and […]

By Cully Stimson and GianCarlo Canaparo ~ Fifty-two defendants and counting. That’s how many people have been indicted or otherwise charged in the college admissions and testing-bribery scandal. When the story first broke last spring, we wrote that the first round of indictments had to be the tip of the iceberg, because over time, those […]
