Paul Clement on the Hugh Hewitt Show

Former Solicitor General Paul Clement has argued 100+ cases before the United States Supreme Court, but we really need SCOTUS to have him back to argue the merits of “chevron deference” in the case of Loper Bright Enterprises.

An overlooked bipartisan success story in 2017: VA reform

An overlooked bipartisan success story in 2017: VA reform

From the Grammy Awards to the Pro Bowl, it is an American tradition to start the new year by celebrating last year’s successes. These celebrations may seem indulgent, but they serve a purpose: to remind us about achievements that might otherwise be forgotten. Just like sports or entertainment, the end of the year dominated headlines when it came to what Congress accomplished (or didn’t) in 2017.
The push to pass tax cuts was hectic and eventful, with even Republicans saying a major legislative victory was needed after several attempts to repeal Obamacare failed. Yet there was another legislative victory in 2017, one at least as impressive as tax cuts in almost every way: reform at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The bill may have passed in another era — last June — but it should not be forgotten.

Commercial fishing boats in New England are going under at an alarming rate, and hard-working families are being demonized by a multimillion-dollar environmental industry whose only product to sell is fear.

Ryan P. Mulvey: Lawsuit against McAuliffe, GreenTech Automotive is long overdue

It was always too good to be true.

 In return for millions of dollars in public loans and tax incentives, GreenTech at one time pledged to create upwards of 25,000 jobs. According to the Memorandum of Understanding eventually signed between the company and the Mississippi Development Authority, however, McAuliffe and his cohorts ultimately only promised to invest $60 million in the state and create 350 full-time jobs within three years.

As expected by some — including Cause of Action Institute — even the company’s more modest promises of economic growth fell through. The writing was on the wall as early as May 2016when reports circulated that GreenTech employed only 75 people and had failed to sell a single vehicle.
