    So this happened: Milo Yiannopoulos’ event at DePaul University had to be cut short Tuesday night after protesters stormed the stage, blew whistles, grabbed the microphone out of the interviewer’s hand, and threatened to punch Yiannopoulos in the face. Watch the video clip here. More from the Breitbart story: Yiannopoulos attempted to continue the event, but protesters refused to leave the stage and the group of security guards (which DePaul forced both the organisers and Breitbart to pay for) refused to intervene.

    Vladimir Putin has in his possession 20,000 of Hitlery Clinton’s Benghazi emails, many of them, no doubt, those which she deleted for reasons that should be obvious to anyone with an IQ greater than that of the average hamster. These emails, which have been described as “tens-of-thousands of top secret and classified emails,” were obtained by Russian intelligence who were tailing, both electronically and physically, Guccifer, the Romanian hacker who hacked Hitlery’s private, unsecured email server. Russian intelligence operatives were watching everything Guccifer was doing, so they too had access to the Hitlery emails, which they saved, and which are...

The following is a summary of the basic points: I. Distinctions – From our perspective as humans, we tend to distinguish sharply between justice and mercy.For us, justice is the rendering to each person what is due to him or her. There is a kind of “You did it, you get it” mentality (whether praise or rebuke, reward or punishment). For us, justice is about...

For these thoughts, I put myself in the shoes of the U.S. Attorney who gets this case dumped in his lap. What, exactly, are you dealing with? 1. Your defendant, thanks to the very graft machine you are expected to prosecute, will have access to almost unlimited financial resources. Unless the FBI has identified all the shady “shell corporations” where Hillary has hidden her money, and you...

    Conservatives are focusing on the nomination of Merrick B. Garland as a fight for Second Amendment rights, but it is much more than that. Seating Garland (or any other liberal) on the bench will be a great triumph for the liberal faction. That one liberal justice will be the last vampire needed to suck the blood out of our constitutional government. To understand my claim, we must first define the liberal process: it is the subjective interpretation and enforcement of law—instead of honoring law as it is written. To a liberal, the actual intent of written law matters only when...

    Seven hackers tied to the Iranian government were charged Thursday in a series of punishing cyberattacks on a small dam outside New York City and on dozens of banks -- intrusions that reached into American infrastructure and disrupted the financial system, federal law enforcement officials said. The hackers were charged in indictments unsealed and announced at a Justice Department news conference in Washington. All seven worked for Iranian computer companies that did work on behalf of the Iranian government, the U.S. said. The attacks on the U.S. financial sector from 2011 to 2013 disabled bank websites and caused tens of...

    Even in his very first years on the US Supreme Court, Justice Antonin Scalia already was making a profound impression on the Court, on Washington, and on American life. I matriculated at Georgetown Law shortly after Scalia joined the Court, and throughout the course of my legal studies, he often was the talk of both the town and the law school. He quickly became something of a judicial folk hero to students who favored judicial restraint, a method of judicial decision-making marked by a justice’s broad deference to the decisions of the people and their elected representatives, and by...

Not surprisingly, the Republicans objected, insisting that the Court should have a full complement of Justices...

Well, to put it in Clintonian terms: It all depends on what the definition of "subject" is. Though you wouldn't know it from the Times, "subject" is a term of art in criminal investigations. It refers to one of the three categories into which prosecutors fit every relevant actor. Subjects are people whose conduct is being scrutinized and who, depending on what evidence turns up, may or may not be charged....

Maybe next will be an audit of the IRS — which apparently hasn't changed its ways. On Tuesday, Day 978 of the unresolved IRS scandal, a federal judge granted class-action status to as many as 300 conservative groups that have been affected by the agency's practice of unduly scrutinizing small-government organizations that sought tax-exempt status but which the IRS saw as dangerous dissidents.

Dinesh D’Souza's latest book, Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party answers that question. D'Souza now views the Progressive movement as a criminal enterprise designed to pull off the biggest heist in world history -- effective control of the enormous wealth created by America's entrepreneurs. This bounty, the author argues, was made possible by the country's embrace of a capitalist system that rewards industry...

    Rioting at this weekend's Washington, D.C. gripe-fest celebrating the 20th anniversary of the endlessly hyped, misnamed Million Man March, seems like a definite possibility. Just this week 12 people were arrested in Hartford, Conn., for disorderly conduct after blocking traffic and access to the University of Hartford as they chanted “Black Lives Matter!” After demonstrators refused to stop sitting and standing in the road, they were arrested.

    Mad at his former girlfriend and probably drunk, Joshua Eisenhauer's only brother hopped into his red Camaro and peeled away from the party at his house. The Camaro screamed down Basswood Boulevard - past newly built homes in an affluent bedroom community of Fort Worth - until the road jagged to the left. Maybe it was the speed, or the fog, or the road construction. Whatever the reason, 19-year-old Eric Eisenhauer missed the turn. The Camaro clipped a barricade, slammed into a berm and flipped before skidding into the Texas scrub.
