What is of particular note is that this paper comes from a Brookings Institution scholar. Brookings is generally liberal in its disposition.
I am not keen on the prescription. Notice that the author comes short of calling the Fed itself unconstitutional. But at least there is some criticism of the Fed coming from the lefty camp. The excuses for the Fed have gotten embarrassing of late.
Nothing says “I care” more than raising heating bills unnecessarily on people.
Albany stinks almost as much as Washington DC. This appears to be just overt, classic crony capitalism. Not a lot of nuance here.
A great report. I certainly saw this first hand at CPAC this year. Liberty (generally) is what drives today’s young “conservatives.”
And it’s not entirely generational. I think many of the older folks are coming along, just fewer of them in relative terms.
I didn’t see many Huckabee 2016 signs that’s for sure.
This is a bit creepy.

Congress didn’t authorize this payment. What gives?
Sadly the answer is all too familiar. Rule of law be damned.
Byron Allen is calling some people and organizations out.

Did I just cozy up to the nominee’s wife on stage? Why did I do that? Oh man. Damn, why can’t I remember to keep it back stage!
Just keep smiling.”
Prison Planet tends to be a bit over the top for me often. But this is a very good video.
Putting aside the fact that Google may very well be right here this development just reflects whose interests are represented at the FCC. It’s not ours that’s for sure.
Why won’t Commissioner Wheeler testify before Congress before the vote? Why can’t the public see the now secret rules before they are adopted? Google apparently got to.
Nothing wrong with foreign governments giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to the foundation of a sitting Secretary of State and likely candidate for US President. Nope. Totally cool. Nothing wrong with that at all.
