Analysis: With Final Passage Likely, Tax Reform Delivers Conservative Policy Victories and Dishonest Liberal Hysteria.

In short, it’s happening.  Congress’ bicameral conference committee unveiled a compromise tax reform bill on Friday, with votes in each chamber expected this week.  The procedural rules forbid any further amendments, changes or “tweaks” to the now-finalized legislation; the next and last legislative step is a pair of up-or-down votes on an identical bill in […]

The judgment of the Ninth Circuit upholding the temporary restraining order (TRO) against President Donald Trump’s recent executive order restricting travel from seven terror-prone countries would have allowed one of the 9/11 hijackers to sue the government to come to, or stay in, the United States.
