'Two-Fer: Electing a President and a Supreme Court' by Clint BolickPosted on April 30, 2012 | Type: In the News
Hoover Institution Press released "Two-Fer: Electing a President and a Supreme Court" by constitutional law expert Clint Bolick. In Two-Fer, Bolick importantly points out that, during a presidential campaign and election, judicial selection is usually considered a minor issue and given too little attention by the American public and the media. The recent argument over Obamacare, however, has brought into sharp focus the importance—and pointed internal division—of the US Supreme Court. In this book, Bolick argues that appointing (a) Supreme Court justice(s) is a president’s most important and enduring legacy because lifetime tenure for federal court judges far outlasts the president who appointed them. Bolick explains how the appointment of justices—and the combination of those appointed justices—can change and shape the course of history and the future. Bolick also makes the case that, although judges operate in relative obscurity, every day they make decisions that affect issues such as health care, religion, speech, property, business, education, and civil rights.

Malkin: The Obamacare HydraPosted on March 23, 2012 | Type: In the News | Author: Michelle Malkin
The Hydra was a mythical swamp beast whose multiple heads grew back after being severed. Obamacare is a real Washington monster whose countless hidden bureaucracies keep sprouting forth even after they're rooted out. As soon as combatants lop off one of the law's unconstitutional agencies, another takes its place.
The Coming Medical Ethics CrisisPosted on March 15, 2012 | Type: In the News | Author: Jeffrey A. Singer
For the past several years, the medical profession has been undergoing a disturbing transformation. The process was begun by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in an effort to control exploding Medicare costs, and was accelerated by the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. As a surgeon in practice for over 30 years, I have witnessed this transformation firsthand. I fear that my profession will soon abandon its traditional code of ethics and adopt one more suited to veterinarians.
