ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: The Illogic of Wondrous Rigors | NRO

By  Andrew C. McCarthy June 27, 2013 7:54 AM Mike, let’s not confuse Rachel Maddow with Aristotle. The latter would find nothing contradictory in the codification and enforcement of two different rules of marriage in two different states. He would ask what is it that makes a state a state and conclude that sovereignty is one of the core elements. In the United ... Go To Article

ANDREW McCARTHY:: The Immigration Bill (Or Is It the Corker-Hoeven Amendment?): Everything That Is Wrong with Washington | NRO

I was just watching Senator Ted Cruz’s floor speech in opposition to the atrocious immigration bill and took note of a remarkable exchange between Senators Cruz and Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat and mastermind of the legislation. The short YouTube video is worth your time (Schumer interrupts about a minute in). Cruz pointed out that the hefy 1,200-page ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: Paul and Lee Lead Bipartisan Effort Against Obama’s Unauthorized Syria Intervention

Thanks to Republican Senators Rand Paul (of Kentucky) and Mike Lee (of Utah), we might finally get on Syria what we were denied on Libya: a real debate among the American people’s representatives over congressional authorization of President Obama’s unilateral war-making in the Middle East. The Washington Examiner reports that Senators Paul and Lee have joined with ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: The National-Security Right Goes Silent | National Review Online

The jihad rages on, but the War on Terror is over. There is no longer a national-security consensus — no longer the political support for wartime defense measures, much less offensive combat operations. While the enemy continues to fight, our will to break the enemy’s will has vanished. After a contentious week, that much is clear. The controversy swirling around ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: Rand Paul’s ‘Here’s to Crime’ Act | NRO

By Andrew C. McCarthy -- The notorious “civil rights” lawyer William Kunstler, in addition to his work on “political” cases (i.e., anti-American radical-leftist and terrorist cases), gladly made himself available to mobsters, too — after all, someone had to pay the bills. Invited to a dinner once after a job well done for a mafia don, he hoisted a glass to ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: The Power and the Power Wielders | NRO

By  Andrew C. McCarthy June 10, 2013 9:31 AM -- In the latest NSA surveillance controversies, there are two major, inseparable issues: (a) Is the awesome power to collect information essential for national security in light of our current threat environment, and (b) even if it is, should we trust the government to wield this power both lawfully and prudently? The ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY: SOLDIER REPRIMANDED for Reading David Limbaugh and Mark Levin | NationalReviewOnline

By  Andrew C. McCarthy, June 8, 2013 The Fourth Amendment has been getting a workout around here this week thanks to the NSA controversy — and my weekend column has another whack at it. But it is the First Amendment that continues to be in real peril — and once again, the U.S. military brass is among the worst offenders. At Fox News, Todd Starnes reports that a ... Go To Article

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY: What Is Private, What Is Not | NationalReviewOnline

By Andrew C. McCarthy, JUNE 8, 2013 4:00 AM The national security of the United States justifies the collection of “metadata.” Seemed reasonable to me. “I want the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of every person in the five boroughs.” I barked the instruction to one of the eager young interns whose job was not to wonder aloud why cranky federal ...

ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: Phone Record Gathering Story Blown Out of Proportion | NRO

Now, we begin to see the wages of having an administration that abuses its awesome powers, then, as night follows day, stonewalls and misleads Congress and the public. Crucial national security measures, which operate on the forgiving assumption that government officials will conduct themselves honorably, are put at risk. The Washington Post publishes a wildly ...

ANDREW McCARTHY:: If you see something, say nothing – The New Criterion

by Andrew C. McCarthy -- It was a report of the now numbingly familiar sort. Witnesses at the synagogue in Paris recounted that an Iranian immigrant had been screaming “Allahu Akbar!” while he chased the rabbi and his son. When he finally caught up, he slashed away at them with a box-cutter, causing severe lacerations. Nevertheless, the Associated Press assured ... Go To Article
