Once again, we have Attorney General Eric Holder in the middle of a mess. This time, he's promising a nationwide examination of voting laws enacted by states - with special concern about laws that require voters to show identification in order to participate in an election. 

Now, the Attorney General, in a high profile speech, says "all citizens should be automatically registered to vote" and is critical of voter ID laws passed in Texas and other states.

What's wrong with requiring voters to present a valid ID?

In a debate on this issue today on FOX News with Megyn Kelly, I argued that there's nothing wrong with confirming a voter's identity in order to cast a ballot. Such a request is reasonable, constitutional, and important in preventing voter fraud. You can watch the interview here.

It seems we have an Attorney General with misplaced priorities.

He won't take responsibility for Operation Fast & Furious, a gun-running program that put U.S. weapons into the hands of Mexican criminals - an ill-conceived program that claimed the life of a U.S. border agent one year ago today.

He won't permit Arizona to protect its borders and citizens with a state illegal immigration law that was challenged by the Justice Department - a case to be heard this spring by the Supreme Court. Now, a new poll suggests most Americans favor a law like Arizona's. And nearly 15,000 Americans already have signed on to our Committee to join our amicus brief to be filed with the high court backing the Arizona law.

Keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals - and defending our border - that should be the priority of Attorney General Holder and the Justice Department. Sadly, it appears that is not the case.

State Department Uses IRS Playbook

By Matthew Clark1432157351344

Yesterday’s revelation that the State Department is processing (read: stonewalling) 50,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but that none of those emails will be ready for public consumption until sometime in January 2016 is unsurprising. Those emails cover everything from the...

By Edward White1431954000000

During the 1980s, there was a popular comedy show on the BBC called Yes Minister . The show involved a politician who was often thwarted by a member of the unelected civil service bureaucracy when he proposed legislation or reforms that were not beneficial to the bureaucracy. As in the fictional...
