Uncle Joe Biden Meets Hollywood McCarthyism — and Folds

Opinion He is humble, gracious and respectful to a fault, and his kindness probably inflames his intolerant enemies all the more because it exposes their contrasting gracelessness, intolerance and mean-spiritedness.

Bannon Gives ‘War Horse’ Pelosi A 10/10 Job Performance Rating

Nancy Pelosi has an unexpected fan. Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, graded the House speaker a 10 out of 10 on her job performance so far in a clip of the show “The Circus.” “She’s a war horse,” he said. “For what she’s trying to accomplish, I think Pelosi’s done a good job.” He applauded her recent impeachment comments as the perfect way to step back unless the political winds shift and the American public gets on board with ousting President Donald Trump from office.

‘Party’s Over’: GOPers Seem Ready To Deal Trump Defeat On Nat’l Emergency

It’s 2019 and, in more than half of the states in the United States, it remains legal to discriminate against members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, in housing, in public spaces, and many other areas.

Is ballot harvesting legal in California? Yes, and that worries some Republicans

Three years ago, a state law made it easier for Californians to have someone else collect and drop off their absentee ballot. Doing this on a mass scale became known as ballot harvesting. And in recent months many conservative politicians and their advisers have suggested the practice – not  Democratic voter enthusiasm nor a public backlash against President Donald Trump – is the reason Republicans lost ground federally and in Sacramento in the November midterms. Now, Rep. Ken Calvert, R-Corona ...
