Sen. Kamala D. Harris is raising the possibility of eliminating private health insurance. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and other prominent Democrats are floating new and far-reaching plans to tax the wealthy. In Virginia, Gov. Ralph Northam voiced support for state legislation that would reduce restrictions on late-term abortions.
A few days ago, Republicans were pouncing when they truthfully quoted Democrats. Now they are seizing. Whatever they’re doing, it seems to be getting under The Media’s skin.
I’ve previously posted about a group of newspapers filing suit against Maryland to stop the state’s unconstitutional attempt to regulate political advertising on the Internet. The newspapers are seeking a preliminary injunction to stop the law from going into effect. The State has filed an opposition to the motion for a preliminary injunction.
There will be a hearing on the motion for a preliminary injunction. It was originally scheduled for early October, but the lawyers and Judge Grimm are trying to resolve scheduling conflicts. When the hearing is scheduled, I’ll make arrangements to attend and report on it.
Here is a recent tweet from the Cabin Boy™—And this is from a WaPo article published on 8 June, 2016, called How to Visit 48 State Capitals in Under Nine Days—The Breitbart UnmaskedBunny Billy Boy Unread Editorial Board was unavailable for comment.
WaPo‘s Fact Checker gets one right when he awards no Pinocchios to Marco Rubio for his statement that none of the recent “mass shootings” would have been prevented by any of the current or currently proposed gun laws.
Gun-control advocates often point to the experience in other countries that have enacted gun laws that heavily restrict gun ownership; as we have shown, quantitative measures of cross-comparative crime statistics, especially where the crime is not consistently defined (i.e., “mass shooting”), usually end up being apples-to-oranges comparisons. It is possible that some gun-control proposals, such as a ban on large-capacity magazines, would reduce the number of dead in a future shooting, though the evidence for that is heavily disputed. But Rubio was speaking in the past, about specific incidents. He earns a rare Geppetto Checkmark.
