    Note: This is the first in a series of essays examining the prospects for electing a republican president in 2016 and ultimately reining in the modern imperial presidency through the lens of Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist essays on the executive branch. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a politician making Iowa or New Hampshire his second home must be in want of the presidency. We’ve got more than a few of those these days and can expect the 2016 presidential campaign to begin in earnest minutes after the mid-term elections conclude. Expect the Big Announcement from Hillary some time “around”...

    Ithaca, N.Y. — The former President of the Ithaca Education Support Professionals Union has been arrested for allegedly stealing money from members. Laureen F. Hamilton, 52, admitted to Ithaca police she took around $7,000 without authorization from the union coffers in 2013. According to the City of Ithaca Police Department, Hamilton, a resident of Cayuta, NY, was charged with third-degree grand larceny. In a statement, police said they were first alerted to the matter on January 17. Investigators later interviewed Hamilton, who admitted she took the money while president of the union. When the crime happened, Hamilton was President of...

    Our stories are changing. Wonder and Beauty slowly eke from our world, unnoticed and unmourned. I used to think it was a natural cessation from the Neverland of youth; a necessary immigration from the immature trappings of youthful imagination to the logical constraints of a moribund maturity. However I've found that this is not just my perspective, draining of imagination and wonder as I age. Our stories, our heroes are changing. Our children seem less prone to idealism, more immune to wonder; and this points to a tidal shift in the culture itself. If you watch or read any contemporary...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (RNS) William Hamilton, the retired theologian who declared in the 1960s that God was dead, died Tuesday (Feb. 28) in his downtown Portland apartment. He was 87. Hamilton said he'd been haunted by questions about God since he was a teenager. Years later, when his conclusion was published in the April 8, 1966, edition of Time Magazine, he found himself at the center of a theological storm. Time christened the new movement "radical theology," and Hamilton, one of its key figures, received death threats and inspired angry letters to the editor. He lost his endowed chair as...

He and others who track what they call "denialism" find that its nature is changing in America, last redoubt of climate naysayers. It has taken on a more partisan, ideological tone. Polls find a widening Republican-Democrat gap on climate. Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry even accuses climate scientists of lying for money.

He got off the boat from the West Indies, and all he did was write the Constitution and become the first Secretary of the Treasury."

    Contemporary American politics is conducted in the shadow of historical myths that inform our present-day choices. Unfortunately, these myths sometimes lead us terribly astray. Case in point is the popular idea that America’s economic tradition has been economic liberty, laissez faire, and wide-open cowboy capitalism. This notion sounds obvious, and it fits the image of this country held by both the Right, which celebrates this tradition, and the Left, which bemoans it. And it seems to imply, among other things, that free trade is the American Way. Don’t Tread On Me or my right to import. It is, in fact,...

    As dawn was breaking over the heights of Weehawken, New Jersey on July 11, two boats rowed across from Manhattan Island (such interviews as they planned were illegal in New York). The first to arrive was the Vice President and his second; twenty minutes later, the other boat brought the former Secretary of the Treasury and his second. Once they had dispensed with the formalities, two of the most prominent men in America faced each other and fired. Struck in the abdomen, General Alexander Hamilton lay on the ground, to die in agony the following day. This indispensable founding father...

What many, especially those educated in the "modern" American public school system, may not know is that the founders strongly disagreed on whether or not to include the Bill of Rights in the US Constitution.

This is about Judge David Hamilton, Obama's extremist nominee for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The GOP managed to delay his vote back in April, but now Harry Reid is trying to stop any debate on Hamilton by setting a cloture vote for TONIGHT. Hamilton ruled that prayers mentioning Jesus in the Indiana legislature were illegal, but that prayers mentioning Allah were legal. Isn't that special? He was overturned by the 7th Circuit, and so of course...

    In his debut as the nation's 75th treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner has been a smashing success -- if success is measured by more federal debt and less accountability to American taxpayers. It was never supposed to be this way. When our first treasury secretary, Alexander Hamilton, sought to establish the nation's first bank in 1791, he faced challenges from those who condemned the move as an unconstitutional power grab to control the flow of credit and direct the national economy. Against these criticisms, Hamilton drafted numerous provisions to ensure solvency, transparency and fiscal restraint on the part of the federal...

    The nomination of Judge David Hamilton by President Obama to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals should concern all Americans. His nomination raises several issues that should run up the red flag for any American who loves his country and believes in constitutional government. The first problem with Hamilton is that when he was appointed in 1994 by then-President Clinton, the American Bar Association rated him as unqualified. Judge Hamilton used to be a fund-raiser for ACORN, an acronym and an organization that have become synonymous with voter fraud. Judge Hamilton served on the board of the ACLU, a group...

In a nomination that may be voted on as early as this week, the president has chosen Hamilton to sit on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, an important Chicago-based bench whose jurisdiction extends over Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. The appointment serves as an early warning that Obama’s judicial nominees, presented as “moderates,” will be anything but. Born in 1957, Hamilton began his judicial career when he was nominated by President...

The following February, the deal went through and the government borrowed $19,608.81. It was the start of the American national debt under the new Constitution. The United States was not exactly a good credit risk at that time, so the government was, perhaps,...

    As Major League Baseball showcased its stars in famed Yankee Stadium, the player who emerged from the All-Star break as the biggest star of all, Texas Ranger outfielder Josh Hamilton, spent most of his time pointing to someone greater than himself. Hamilton, whose career and his life were nearly ended by drug addiction, wowed the masses in person and on TV during Monday night's Home Run Derby, but he used his national platform to give credit to God for his athletic ability. "I can't believe what God has done in my life and how quickly He has done it," Hamilton...

    Burr-Hamilton duel A contemporary artistic rendering of the July 11, 1804 duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton by J. Mund. The DuelIn the early morning hours of July 11, 1804, Burr and Hamilton departed by separate boats from Manhattan and rowed across the Hudson River to a spot known as the Heights of Weehawken in New Jersey, a popular dueling ground below the towering cliffs of the Palisades. Hamilton and Burr agreed to take the duel to Weehawken because dueling had been outlawed in New York (The same site was used for 18 known duels between 1700 and 1845.).In...

    Last month, workmen jacked up a 206-year-old yellow clapboard house, levered it onto a set of remote-controlled dollies, and trundled it two blocks to a new site in St. Nicholas Park, overlooking East Harlem in New York City. The Grange, as it is called, was the home of Alexander Hamilton, best known as co-author of the Federalist papers and America's first secretary of the Treasury. But this founding father also had an extraordinary role in the infant nation's attempt to come to grips with the curse of slavery. Born in the West Indies, Hamilton was one of the most ardent...

    NEW YORK — Two hundred and eighty tons of American history were on the move Saturday in Harlem. The home of Alexander Hamilton, who conceived the country's banking system and was killed in a duel with a political rival, rolled inch by inch down a Harlem hillside to its new location overlooking a park. "This was the only home Hamilton ever owned," said Steve Laise, a National Park Service official dressed in a vest, tie and pants typical of the 1800's. "It represented the consummation of Hamilton's lifelong dream — a successful social position for a man who came to...

Dennis Kucinich is the latest among the Congressional Democrats to travel the road to Damascus, to give aid and comfort to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. In an interview with a tarted-up reporter for Syrian state television, Kucinich laid out his plan for...

    War On Terror: The co-chairmen of the 9/11 Commission buy the Democratic line that the war in Iraq is a diversion from the war on terror and a recruiting tool for al-Qaida . But it's the bad guys who are less safe. In a Washington Post op-ed, 9/11 Commission chairman Thomas Kean and vice chairman Lee Hamilton ponder the question of whether we are safer now than we were on that tragic day. They conclude the war in Iraq has made us less safe. They are wrong. "No conflict" they opine, "drains more time, attention, blood and treasure and support...

    Yesterday I commented somewhat extensively on Jack Hamilton, who is considered to this day a hate object because of the tragic beaning of Boston Red Sox star Tony Conigliaro in 1967. The tragedy ruined Conigliaro’s career and may—may—have contributed long-term to his premature death. It certainly hung Hamilton with a reputation as a careless headhunter. And he doesn’t deserve it. The Red Sox plan to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the Conigliaro beaning Saturday night, before playing the team for whom Hamilton pitched when Tony C. went down for the count, the team known then as the California Angels. It’s...

EVER since its creation in 1979, the Islamic Republic in Iran has been obsessed with conspiracy theories, especially "foreign plots" to topple it. This paranoia was demonstrated again Wednesday with the televised confessions of two U.S. citizens of Iranian origin arrested in Tehran and accused of working for the "Great Satan." To most Iranians who watched the sordid show, the two "enemies of Islam" seemed unlikely heroes of an international conspiracy....
