Justice Sotomayor Criticizes Colleagues
By James Hirsen

In a recent dissent to a Supreme Court decision, Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor crossed the bounds of judicial norms by accusing her fellow Supreme Court colleagues of being biased toward the Trump administration in carrying out their judicial work. The case before the High Court, Wolf v. Cook County, deals with circumstances in which the government could deny visas or green cards to non-citizens who are looking to enter the United States. In 2019 the Trump administration, via the Department of Homeland Security, issued a new rule to be used for the purposes of determining whether an individual could be granted legal entry into the United States.

Liz Warren is Now Auditioning to Be Bernie's Running Mate
By Lowell Ponte

The recent Democrat debate was a soap opera that revealed the embarrassing smallness of each of the participating candidates who deem themselves worthy of replacing President Trump this November. Elizabeth Warren, for example, lately has lost much of her popular support and finances. During the debate, she had to reignite her failing candidacy and did so with do-or-die desperate attacks on Bloomberg. This column looks at the debate days earlier in which billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was trounced by Warren. He was not on the Nevada ballot, nor will he be on this week's South Carolina ballot. [more...]

Bloomberg Tries to Control Others Because He Can't Control Himself
By Karen Kataline

What drives Bloomberg with the freedom to enjoy his wealth in 65 billion different ways, to spend his time trying to curtail the freedoms and choices of others, even down to the size soda they drink and the amount of salt they ought to be allowed to sprinkle on their spinach? Coloradans know all too well that the Democratic Presidential candidate spent boatloads of cash pushing state legislators to clamp down on their God-given right to defend themselves and their families.  He has pushed freedom-sucking and blatantly biased "Red Flag" bills in numerous other states around the country. Mayor Busybody simply can’t stop telling others what to do. It seems to be an obsession with him. [more...]  NOTE: Karen is Available for Interviews from C-PAC this week.

Insurance Stocks Have Been on Fire This Month
By Crista Huff

After a year of stagnant share prices, stocks within the investment and insurance industry are suddenly rising rapidly. That’s because a long-ignored cycle of strong revenue and profit growth is finally coming to light, sparked by excitement over fourth-quarter 2019 earnings reports. In recent days, we’ve seen very bullish share price action with Ameriprise Financial (AMP), Brighthouse Financial (BHF) and Lincoln National (LNC). It’s not too late for investors to grab one more excellent insurance stock before they, too, report fourth-quarter results that will probably be greeted with a similar level of enthusiasm by Wall Street. [more...]

Bloomberg Has a Lot of Bad Ideas for Health Care
By Sally Pipes, President & CEO of the Pacific Research Institute

Bloomberg has a long record on health care that Democratic voters may find objectionable. His past statements reveal a distaste for Obamacare and comfort with the type of government rationing that would characterize "Medicare-for-all." Unlike Sanders, Bloomberg has promised "to achieve universal coverage" by improving Obamacare, not replacing it. In particular, he has pledged to protect Obamacare from Republican attacks. Clips of President Trump critiquing Obamacare were featured in a campaign ad that Bloomberg's campaign spent over $41 million to air 46,000 times. [more...]
