Paying a visit to Richard Nixon

Out for a run on a wooded trail last Saturday morning, Neil Young’s “Campaigner” came up — as if at random! — on the Spotify feed in my headphones. You know the tune — or maybe you don’t. From 1977, on the “Decade” album: “Hospitals have made him cry / But there’s always a freeway in his eye … where even Richard Nixon has got soul.” Somehow the algorithm had intuited that, for my sins, I had an appointment at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum on Monday morning. Sin being that in ...

Election: Is America itself on the ballot? Depends on who you ask

In the end, what is it all about? The question hangs over Tuesday’s election, like a star-spangled flag on a windless day waiting to be blown one direction or another by a breeze from the ballot box. In the view of those who are calling this the most important election of our lifetimes — and that includes people from all corners of the political universe — the upcoming midterm is less about specific policy proposals, individual candidates and congressional-majority math than it is a gut-level ch...

R29 Binge Club: House Of Cards Season 6, Episodes 1-7

The king is dead; long live the queen. That is the mantra for the sixth and final season of Netflix’s House Of Cards, which arrived Friday, November 2. Clare Hale (star-executive producer-director Robin Wright) is using her maiden name — by the way, “maiden name” is a painfully outdated phrase — as the president of the United States. Claire’s husband Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) abandoned the position during 2017’s season 5, leading to Claire’s “My turn” ascendancy. Then, after Frank’s portra...

Trump backtracks on suggestion U.S. troops could fire on migrants

What I don't want is I don't want these people throwing rocks," Trump told reporters outside the White House. "If they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time." Trump's rhetoric on shooting migrants drew criticism from human rights groups that said he was stoking fear ahead of next week's congressional elections. Calling migrants a national security threat "is as absurd as it is cruel," advocacy group Human Rights First said in a statement.

Election: What’s turnout in California for the 2018 midterms looking like?

The safest prediction in the otherwise unpredictable 2018 midterm is that voter turnout will dwarf 2014. In the  non-Presidential election of 2014 just 42 percent of California’s registered voters cast ballots, a record low. But this year — buoyed by competitive Southern California House races with implications for the balance of power in Washington, D.C., and with off-the-chart level of interest in politics following Donald Trump’s 2016 victory — turnout is expected to be high. “There is virtua...
