The American Spectator

Rand Paul and the GOP promised land.

When Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) concluded his speech at the Republican National Convention, one writer was particularly effusive in his praise. Paul's national debut "can only be described as a humdinger." His speech was "brilliantly succinct" in its dissection of the anti-business populism currently in fashion among Democrats. It was an "undeniable triumph." The senator himself is "a star."

Ryan on the American Tipping Point: it's the socialism, stupid.

Why did Obama fail? Or has Obama actually succeeded? The debt soars to $16 trillion. Millions are out of work to the tune of an 8.3% unemployment rate, with the CBO predicting it will keep on climbing to 9% by 2013 -- now only five short months away. One could go on, yipping and yapping about everything from the price of a gallon of gas (already headed north to four bucks a gallon, it spiked again Wednesday from a nickel to as much as 14 cents in the wake of Hurricane Isaac) to the crony capitalism of Solyndra.

Political columnist Froma Harrop makes the odd and offensive suggestion in this column (entitled "Akin's Consistency is GOP's Real Problem") that fingernails are equivalent in human value to an early-trimester unborn child...

The Obama administration's recent signing of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement may face a US constitutional challenge as a member of the US Senate today called into question the administration's power to negotiate and enter into such a trade agreement without Congress's approval. Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat often out front on technology issues, sent a 12 October letter addressed to President Obama taking issue the US Trade Representative (USTR)'s assertions that the ACTA is a "sole executive agreement" which can be entered into and implemented without the legislative branch's involvement. USTR, which is part of the White House, has repeatedly said the agreement does not require changes to US law.

"We've heard a lot in the last number of weeks about what police officers can't do, and what police officers shouldn't do," groused Patrick Lynch, designated spokesliar for the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, New York's largest police union.

"No one's telling us what we are able to do, and what we should do, when we're faced with a situation where the person being placed under arrest says, 'I'm not going. I'm not being placed under arrest.'" "What is it we should do?" continued Lynch, his voice colored by theatrical incredulity. "Walk away?" If the would-be arrestee isn't involved in an actual crime - that is, an act of aggression against another person - the only morally suitable answer is: Yes. The cop should shut up, go away, and refrain from molesting one of his betters. The experience might encourage him to find honest work.

What is the "worst nightmare" one can imagine in an encounter between a police officer and a member of the productive class?

One answer is offered by the experience of Eric Garner, who died after being choked and swarmed without cause by a thugscrum of NYPD officers. That nightmare continues for his wife, his six children, his grandchildren, and others who were deprived of his company because of an unprovoked act of criminal aggression by privileged purveyors of government-sanctioned violence. What, on the other hand, is the "worst nightmare" for a police officer in such a situation? In a single word, accountability.

As the deadlocked jury was dismissed in the trial of Delaware resident Michael W. Rogers, at least half of them favored the defendant with a smile.

Perhaps the prosecution hadn't been sufficiently diligent in their efforts to purge the jury pool of decent and conscientious people. Another possibility is that half or more of the panel rebelled against the indecency of trying to imprison a 53-year-old man for the supposed offense of surviving a police officer's attempt to murder him. Last August, Rogers was asleep in the home he shares with his then-87-year-old mother, Lorraine, when Delaware State Trooper Matthew Morgan materialized on their doorstep. Morgan said that he wanted to question Rogers about a non-injury traffic accident that had occurred earlier that evening. Unfortunately, Lorraine - whose family includes law enforcement officers - let the 28-year-old stranger into the home, rather than ordering him away.

Not surprisingly, in this is the age of Homeland Security Theater, cops and their fellow travelers often seek to provoke comments that can be construed as "threats" or "incitement" - and then demand that Facebook shut the supposedly offensive page.

Although government-aligned media outlets generally are faithful stenographers for the coercive caste, the same is not true of social media. YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter have fatally undermined the official narrative that law enforcement is a noble calling by offering critics the means to document and publicize the criminal violence and pervasive corruption that characterize the profession. Thus it's not surprising that police are seeking to ban Facebook pages that document police misconduct and demand accountability. "There are anti-anti-police pages starting whose main purpose isn't to engage the anti-police pages intellectually, but just to report and get them banned," warns LRC reader Buddhadev Chakraborty. "Examples of these pages are Stop the Cop Haters, and Night of Blue Lights."

No tactical genius is necessary to bring about a bloodless end to a standoff involving a 107-year-old man armed with a handgun and surrounded by police officers inside an otherwise vacant house.

All that is necessary is a willingness on the part of the officers to accept a minimal amount of risk, and a time horizon longer than a half hour. In fact, only someone with a perverse appetite for gratuitous bloodshed could arrange to end that confrontation with the violent death of the centenarian suspect. As it happens, the valiant men of the Pine Bluff, Arkansas Police Department's SWAT team were equal to that task. That's why 107-year-old Monroe Isadore was killed in a torrent of gunfire on the evening of September 7.

In overtly totalitarian countries, families of condemned state enemies are often required to pay for the bullets used to execute their loved ones. Two recent federal court rulings indicate that a very similar custom has taken root in proto-Soviet America.

On June 3, 2011, a man wearing a ski mask hurled a crude, improvised stink bomb through an apartment window in Laguna Beach, California. The payload of that infernal device was butyric acid produced through fermentation of milk and cheese. Several people complained about the noxious odor, but nobody was hospitalized. On a garage door of the targeted building, the attacker spray-painted the demand, "Stalk someone else." Without any solid leads, and acting on rumors, the Laguna Beach PD dispatched a SWAT team a day later to raid the Rowland Heights, California home of Marilyn Injeyan, a 71-year-old retired schoolteacher. Her son, Vahan, was described as a "person of interest" - not a suspect, mind you - in the stink bomb attack, which through the dubious miracle of Homeland Security hyperbole had been transformed into a "domestic terrorism" incident...
