    • Thus, they were unprepared for the next steps – i.e. the transition, building a cabinet and a solid policy playbook

The House of Representatives reauthorized Section 702 of the Patriot Act just after the President’s “special advisers” on Fox and Friends nearly torpedoed it through the marvels of early morning television!

  • Yes, Judge Napolitano, there is a balance between keeping the Homeland Safe and some small measure of personal privacy.
  • Libertarianism is not a synonym for patriotism in the 21st century
