The Meaning and Implications of the Mueller Report

I have finally finished reading the Mueller Report, slowly and with care. In one sense, the Report is more accessible than its intimidating four-hundred-plus pages may at first appear. The executive summaries of Volumes I and II are short, clear, and illuminating. Before voting in the 2020 primaries or general election, every literate American might consider reading them. On the other hand, it may be challenging for readers who are not sophisticated lawyers to figure out what is going on in...

Dems Raise $75M Across Many Campaigns, Signaling Lengthy Fight Ahead

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidates raised about $75 million during the first quarter of the 2020 election, a lackluster sum spread out across more than a dozen campaigns that signals a drawn-out battle likely lies ahead. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders led the field by raising $18 million and California Sen. Kamala Harris came in second with $12 million. Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke came in third with $9.3 million, followed by South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who ca...

The Anti-Constitutionality of Court-Packing

Recently, there has been a lot of talk on the ideological left in the United States, including among certain Democratic presidential candidates, about the benefits of adding seats to the Supreme Court (that is, “Court expansion” or “Court-packing,” depending on one’s rhetorical objectives) when the Democrats again control the White House and both houses of Congress. I will call such a move Court-packing, which is the more common term and also the term that seems to me more honest. In this post, ...

Face It. Hate is Profitable.

Of all the places I’ve traveled to around the world, my favorite by far is New Zealand. Not only is its natural beauty absolutely spectacular, but its people are incredibly warm and welcoming. And as a Native Hawaiian, I was especially struck by how the indigenous Māori people had forged and maintained respectful and equal relationships with the western world. They weren’t marginalized or caricatured cast-offs lost in the military industrial-slash-tourism complex. They were respected and...

Judge Allows Lawsuit Aimed At Stopping Obama Center Construction To Proceed

CHICAGO (AP) — A judge on Tuesday gave the green light to a lawsuit filed by a parks-advocacy group that aims to stop for good the delayed construction of former President Barack Obama’s $500 million presidential center in a Chicago park beside Lake Michigan. Some supporters of the project fear the lawsuit filed by Protect Our Parks could force Obama — who launched his political career in Chicago — to build the Obama Presidential Center elsewhere. A 2016 lawsuit brought by another group helped...

The rats are steering the sinking ship

Los Angeles City Hall is infested with rats. I know, the jokes pretty much write themselves, don’t they? Rats, rat droppings, fleas and at least one case of typhus prompted City Council President Herb Wesson to promise a quick and comprehensive solution to the problem including the pricey prospect of tearing out and replacing all the carpets and drapes in the iconic 32-story building. Four-legged rats get everyone’s attention. Too bad the same can’t be said for the two-legged vermin that have al...

Tulsi Gabbard could be the president America needs

With every passing year, politicians grow more confident in their ability to thrust Americans into another war, to make decisions that benefit themselves and not their constituents, and to increase their profits as the average American can hardly scrape by. Few politicians take a stand against this, to what has become the norm, and when they do, the mainstream media will either smear them or not cover them at all. It takes a soldier-president to reverse this course. Fortunately, we have such a c...

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard wins coveted David Duke endorsement

Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has won the endorsement of former KKK leader David Duke. Wait, what? A "Tulsi Gabbard for President" banner features the banner tagline, "Finally a candidate who will actually put America First rather than Israel First!" Duke also endorsed Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Though Gabbard does have some reactionary credentials (she's a notorious homophobe, among other things), Duke's probably trolling as she's oth...

Kamala Harris, Running Scared

Announcing a run for the presidency should have been enough for Kamala Harris. In a bid for a party that sees itself as the vanguard of a more racially diverse and progressive future, she comes from the vanguard state leading America there – California. It may seem silly in retrospect, but in 2007 and 2008, liberals and conservatives both questioned whether Barack Obama’s white mother and his upbringing in Hawaii so removed him from the experience of most African-American voters that they woul...

Women’s March Returns To DC, Other Cities

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Women’s March returned to Washington on Saturday and found itself coping with an ideological split and an abbreviated route due to the government shutdown. The original march in 2017, the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, drew hundreds of thousands of people. The exact size of the turnout remains subject to a politically charged debate, but it’s generally regarded as the largest Washington protest since the Vietnam era. Organizer this year submitted a perm...

GOP rejected Obama’s executive reach but accepts Trump’s

By LISA MASCARO | AP Congressional Correspondent WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama stunned Republicans when he bypassed Congress and — relying on what he called his pen and his phone — used executive powers to enact his agenda, including protecting millions of young immigrants from deportation. Now, with President Donald Trump proposing an even more dramatic end-run around Congress to build his promised border wall with Mexico, many Republicans are uneasily cheering him on.
