Obama is Rushing Into War Against Islamic State

In Defeating ISIS, We Must Not Defeat Ourselves
Terror is theater, New York Times columnist Roger Cohen wrote on Monday. Burning skyscrapers, severed heads: The terrorist takes movie images of unbearable lightness and gives them weight enough to embed themselves in the psyche. Over the weekend, ISIS, the newest terror kid on the block, posted another one of its beheading videos to the Internet, marking the third hostage to die in the organizations effort to send chills down the spine of the Western World.

Has World War III Already Begun?
While recently commemorating the World War I centenary at an Italian military cemetery, Pope Francis declared: "Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction." The pope's observation begs the question: If World War III has already started, would we even know it? Or would it only be evident in the rearview mirror?

Obama's Dumb, Rash and Unilateral War: Don't Buy the President's Lame Excuses for Attacking ISIS Without Congressional Approval
A few years ago, when President Obama unilaterally decided to get involved in Libya's civil war, he argued that he did not need approval from Congress because bombing military targets does not constitute "hostilities" under the War Powers Resolution. That argument was so laughable that even the war's supporters in Congress and the press, not to mention Obama's own Office of Legal Counsel, rejected it.

The Fed is Getting Ready to Toy with the Market Again

Innovate Labor Relations
Its practically a clich to note that government just cant keep up with innovation in the private sector. Taxi commissions fight services like Uber, zoning boards ban food trucks, and federal regulations keep experimental drugs out of the hands of patients desperate to try them rather than die. So you should not be surprised to find that Americas labor lawslast seriously overhauled in the dying days of British rule in Indiaare well past their sell-by date. Backed by and fearing the wrath of powerful union bosses, politicians are unwilling to bring employee representation out of the Studebaker factory and into the iPhone world.

Anyone who knows what anxiety, and sometimes anguish, parents go through when they have a child who is still not talking at age two, three or even four, can appreciate what a blessing it can be to have someone who can tell them what to do -- and what not to do.
The Real Sickness At The Heart Of American Culture

Professors Must Defy Feds To Protect Victims
