Former Department of Homeland Security employee Philip Haney says the Obama administration is more concerned about preserving the rights of those with known terrorist ties than ensuring the safety of the American people, as the president terminated a DHS terrorist-monitoring program that would have placed San Bernardino terror suspect Farooq Saeed on the no-fly list. The Hill has a piece written by Haney: There are terrorists in our midst and they arrived here using legal means right under the noses of the federal law enforcement agencies whose mission is to stop them.

The Daily Signal has the details: Most agree that jobs that deal directly with public health and safety should require some sort of license to do. However, a 2015 study conducted by the White House Council of Economic Advisers found that the share of the U.S. workforce needing a license to work increased five-fold from 1950 to 2008. In the District of Columbia, for example, someone looking to work as a shoe shiner must attain four different licenses and ...
