It’s not often I agree with Bill Clinton, but…

The former President had some rather apt remarks to make last night regarding the current President and Conspiracy Theorist-in-Chief: If you want a president who defines the job as spending hours a day watching TV and zapping people on social media, he’s your man.

Cato: A Shocking Dereliction of Duty

Jay Schweikert writing at The Cato Institute (cato.org): This morning, the Supreme Court denied all of the major cert petitions raising the question of whether qualified immunity should be reconsidered.
