Lincoln's birthday, February 12, appears to have lost some of its former aura, as all presidents are now supposedly covered by the amorphous, all-purpose "Presidents' Day," but his time in office retains most of the luster that it acquired after he was killed.

Federal courts have made two significant rulings against the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in cases targeting Ten Commandments displays in Florida and Kentucky.

President Obama used discredited "science" in his State of the Union address to push climate change mandates, while threatening to use executive orders if Congress doesn't act.

It was 100 years ago this month that the 16th Amendment to the Constitution officially became the law of the land. Since this is the one that authorized the federal government to implement a graduated income tax in the United States, you’ll understand why I say that February 3, 1913, was a very bad day for liberty.

New Jersey Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg's announced departure from the Senate next year paves the way for yet another interventionist to replace him, Newark's Mayor Cory Booker.

As Congress considers creating a court with jurisdiction over the drone war, the UN launches an investigation into killing by executive decree.

A report from the Government Accountability Office indicates that 35 percent of the major federal regulations issued from 2003 to 2010 were done so without public notice. Likewise, 44 percent of non-major regulations were also issued without public notice, also known as a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM).

Homeschooling advocates are up in arms after Obama’s Justice Department, led by disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder, claimed that a ban on home education was not a violation of fundamental human rights and that, as such, the ruthlessly persecuted Romeike family should be deported to Germany. Experts say deporting the innocent homeschoolers to face barbaric German authorities — infamous worldwide for lawlessly abducting homeschooled children and jailing home-educating parents — would be bad enough. Particularly troubling for Americans in general, however, is that the case could set a dangerous precedent for U.S. freedom, too.

One would have thought the twin Republican responses to President Obama's State of the Union address by Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul should have been almost identical in opposition to the president. But they ended up a study in sharp contrast.

Several states are enlisting in the fight to deny the federal government the power to indefinitely detain American citizens under provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 (NDAA).
