IRS Agents Get Serious

IRS agents have come under fire for buying wine, diet pills and pornography with their government-issued credit cards. “Hey, at least these IRS agents didn’t waste their money on something silly — like a copy of the Constitution,” says Jodi Miller. In this week’s edition of NewsBusted, she also discusses the Girl Scouts marching in San Francisco’s Gay Pride Parade and joins the speculation on Ted Nugent’s possible Presidential campaign.

Gay Marriage Debate

Obama Watches Fox News

The Administration’s spying on Fox News reporter James Rosen offers proof that Obama’s minions are watching the conservative network. “They just do it with wiretaps and helicopters,” says Jodi Miller.

Today’s False Heroes

Col. Allen West discusses NBA basketball player Jason Collins. Collins revealed publicly that he is gay, and received a telephone call from President Obama. Col. Allen West contrasts this with the heroism of soldiers like Sgt. Greg Robinson, who became the first amputee to complete Air Assault School.

Biden on Cruise Control

Court to Punt on Gay Marriage

“The Supreme Court seems to think that the backers of [California's] Proposition 8 don’t have the standing to bring this case, which would send the case back to the district courts,” says Reason’s Damon Root, who attended Wednesday’s oral arguments for one of the most-watched cases in years.

Hollingsworth v. Perry deals with a ballot initiative passed with 52 percent of the vote in 2008 that bars the Golden State from recognizing same-sex marriage. “That would mean one of two things: We could have gay marriage in California but nowhere else, or the ruling could be limited just to the two same-sex couples that brought the case.”

Root, who writes frequently about legal issues, sat down with Reason magazine’s Matt Welch to discuss how he thinks the justices will rule based on the proceedings.

More of the Same Old…Stuff

President Obama’s inaugural speech Monday makes clear. He won’t be addressing the nation’s unemployment problems or attempting to corral runaway entitlements in his second term. Instead we can expect him to continue to focus on fringe issues that appeal to distinct elements of the Democratic Party’s base — immigration, for instance, and gay marriage. Republican strategist Karl Rove analyzes the President’s speech for the Wall Street Journal.

The Supremes Are Back

Reason.com Managing Editor Damon Root looks into the crystal ball with Reason TV’s Nick Gillespie.

Femen Whacked at Vatican

Femen, the topless Ukraine protesters, flashed their boobs on St. Peter’s Square to disrupt the Pope’s weekly prayer and take a poke at the church for opposing gay marriage. But the assembled faithful didn’t take too kindly to the outburst, as one supplicant whipped out an umbrella to smack the Femen-ists. In this case, serves them right. With their bodies emblazoned with the words “Shut Up,” Femen invited a reciprocal response. These ladies look good, but they need to rethink their Fascist tactics.
