The Smart Gun Doesn’t Exist For The Smartest Reasons

That’s not actually the title of the idiotic Bloomberg article.  It’s titled The Smart Gun Doesn’t Exist for the Dumbest Reasons. Smith & Wesson still feels the wound it suffered two decades ago when it decided to invent smart guns. The idea was to invest heavily in the development of personalized weapons that could be fired only by a single person: the gun’s owner. This was considered a nearly science-fictional proposition in the late 1990s, years before the world was filled with smartphones a...

Barr Decides Asylum Seekers Who Show Credible Fear Won’t Be Eligible For Bond

PHOENIX (AP) — Detained asylum seekers who have shown they have a credible fear of returning to their country will no longer be able to ask a judge to grant them bond. U.S. Attorney General William Barr decided Tuesday that asylum seekers who clear a “credible fear” interview and are facing removal don’t have the right to be released on bond by an immigration court judge while their cases are pending. The attorney general has the authority to overturn prior rulings made by immigration courts...

Bernie Sanders Shines on Fox News

Again, Bernie Sanders is distinguishing himself from his Democratic colleagues on matters of character, confidence, and imagination. The Democratic party has rejected offers from Fox News to host its primary debates. But on Monday night, Sanders did a town hall from Bethlehem, Pa., which sits in one of those now-famous counties that suffered de-industrialization, voted for Barack Obama in 2012, and then went for Donald Trump in 2016. It was a very savvy move. It demonstrated Sanders’s verve, a s...

Bill that clarifies existence of bike lanes through intersections passes committee

The paint ends, the lanes don’t. Despite confusion from some lawmakers that led to an unexpectedly lengthy discussion prior to the vote, House Bill 2682 passed the Joint Committee on Transportation yesterday by a tally of 7-3. I’ve described this bill as a no-brainer; but because it involves bicycling, you just never know what some Oregon legislators will get hung up on. I was amazed at how much consternation and discussion this simple housekeeping bill received in committee yesterday. “The a...

WH Starts Casting About For New Fed Candidates With Less Baggage

As soon as Republican support became less than guaranteed, the White House quietly began casting about for Federal Reserve Board nominees with less baggage than current likely picks Stephen Moore and Herman Cain. But, according to a Tuesday Bloomberg report, National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow said that at least for Cain, he’ll personally have to make the final decision about whether or not to exit the confirmation process. “We are talking to a number of candidates,” Kudlow said. ...
