All human institutions are essentially a reboot of high school, and within the political scene the Never Trumpers are convinced that they are the cool kids despite being the chess club of American politics.
In the sadly contentious matter of remembering Sergeant La David Johnson, the villain turns out to be Congresswoman Fredericka Wilson, more of a ghoulish clown, really. President Trump plays the role of a loyal guard dog who doth bark too much, and General John Kelly comes off as a brave knight with a scratch in his armor. The sudden frenzy already is old news and much picked over, but maybe insufficiently considered.
George W. Bush ascended the podium at a forum hosted by his think tank last week and violated his familys prime directive: Never speak ill of a successor.
Since retired Gen. John Kelly became White House chief of staff, news outlets have portrayed him as the disciplinarian sent to impose order over an unruly President Donald Trump. Kelly rejects that scenario -- when it comes to taming, he has other fish to fry.
The America that I love, with all its warts and blemishes, voted for a black man to be our president 8 years ago and welcomed a black family into the White House. The America that I love, with all its faults and failings, reveres the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King and regrets the legacy of slavery and segregation. That same America is being torn apart today by race baiters and race agitators. We must not let them divide us.
It took a Category 5 hurricane to halt the hysteria over the Trump Administrations decision to force Congress to create legislation that would deal with individuals brought by their parents to the United States as children, an illegal act. It is now time for Jewish leaders to help forge a solution.
Our bizarre age of ideological bickering continues as if weve not been sated yet. At least, the editors of The New York Times think its readers still demand a full barrage of invective and argument against the right.
Nothing is sacred anymore. Nothing is off limits, and everything is political. This week showed us once again there is nothing Democrats wont exploit, no grave they wont dance on, if they think they can score political points. And theres nothing journalists wont spin, wont lie about, and no hypocrisy too great to prevent them from smearing their political opponents.
The war on drugs has been going on since 1971, and we have a winner: marijuana.
Senators and crony corporatists deep-six proposed EPA reductions in biodiesel mandates.
In a special exclusive author interview with Ivana Trump, she reveals who she voted for in the 2016 presidential election, the charming story of how she and Donald Trump met, and the life lessons she instilled in the First Children Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump.
Those who think Fake News started with Trump and the medias slobbering love affair with a U.S. president started with Obama should have seen John F. Kennedys term.
After almost 54 years, the controversy about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy still rages today.
"Diversity is a strength" is one of those Orwellian maxims thats just generally accepted as truth by most Americans despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Democrats in Washington state, like their counterparts in the other Washington, dont always think the law applies to them. They can create elaborate procedures to trip up Republicans in, say, election law. But those requirements are quite optional where they are concerned.
President Bush is facing fierce backlash from conservatives after he delivered a speech that has been interpreted as a direct attack on President Trump.
Every so often, there is a moment of sanity that pushes back against transgender activism in the sports world.
George W. Bush is all about not denigrating entire groups of people, except when it comes to Trump supporters, of course.
We know Hollywood moguls are infamous for taking advantage of aspiring young actresses.
I'd like to better understand the conservative media's orgy over Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced and disgraceful Hollywood film producer and studio executive who used his power over decades to have his way with starlets.
