Whicker: Want an NCAA revolution? The Supreme Court is here to help

Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not have to write a thing. The Supreme Court had already spoken, in 9-0 unanimity. It upheld a district court’s decision in NCAA v. Alston that barred the NCAA from limiting the money an athlete could receive from a college for education-related purposes. It was another paper cut, another hatchet chop against the bloated business of intercollegiate athletics. Then Kavanaugh brought the chainsaw. He wrote a concurring opinion that immediately becomes the bigg...

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is calling on Microsoft to face the same antitrust scrutiny as other large tech platforms in a letter to the company Monday.

As independent redistricting shows, changing rules can change outcomes

The conflict du jour in Washington these days is the sweeping Democratic bill — passed by the House but hung up in the Senate — to overhaul voting procedures. The legislation would supersede widely varying state-level voting laws and is needed, President Joe Biden and other Democratic figures contend, to counteract voter suppression in Republican-dominated states. Republicans counter that the Democrats are less interested in protecting voters’ rights than in changing procedures to enhance Democr...

ATF Makes the Case for Abolishing the ATF ~ VIDEO

Aerial view of the WACO Mount Carmel compound engulfed in flames. IMG ATF USA – -( No one makes a better case for abolishing the ATF than the ATF.

Grand Rapids Wilderness Adventures Weekend

On a June weekend before most bugs had made their presence known, John and I took off for northern Alberta to spend a long weekend with Darcy and Shirley Zelman, owners of Grand Rapids Wilderness Adventures. My goal was to check out the formidable Class VI Grand Rapids – labeled unnavigable (even Red Bull hasn’t sent someone down) and some of the world’s largest concretions that litter the Athabasca River shoreline and the river itself. My primary reason for the visit was research for the second...

Repeal the 2001, 2002 authorizations for use of military force

On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 268 to 161 to repeal the 2002 authorization for use of military force in Iraq. The AUMF, directed at the regime of Saddam Hussein, has long since lost its relevance. As with the 2001 AUMF passed after the attacks of Sept. 11, the 2002 AUMF wrongly cedes war-making powers to the executive branch while letting Congress shirk its constitutional authority. Both AUMFs should be repealed once and for all. The U.S. Constitution is clear. Article I, Sectio...
