Whicker: Want an NCAA revolution? The Supreme Court is here to help

Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not have to write a thing. The Supreme Court had already spoken, in 9-0 unanimity. It upheld a district court’s decision in NCAA v. Alston that barred the NCAA from limiting the money an athlete could receive from a college for education-related purposes. It was another paper cut, another hatchet chop against the bloated business of intercollegiate athletics. Then Kavanaugh brought the chainsaw. He wrote a concurring opinion that immediately becomes the bigg...

Iran’s new leader takes hard line, refuses to meet Biden

By Isabel Debre and Jon Gambrell | Associated Press DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Iran’s president-elect staked out a hard-line position Monday in his first remarks since his landslide election victory, rejecting the possibility of meeting with President Joe Biden or negotiating Tehran’s ballistic missile program and support of regional militias. The comments by Ebrahim Raisi offered a blunt preview of how Iran might deal with the wider world in the next four years as it enters a new stage in ne...

U.S. must set clear, sensible asylum rules

Last Wednesday, the Biden Justice Department eased the Trump Justice Department’s interpretation of asylum law. Contemporaneously, we are experiencing the greatest number of illegal entries into the United States in the last twenty years. These two events are related. The vast majority of those entering illegally claim asylum as soon as they are taken into custody. American law then entitles them to a hearing on their asylum claim and to be free, in America, pending the hearing. The asylum categ...

The fast food chicken sandwich wars will never end and here’s why

Nearly two years after it began, the battle over what fast food chain has the best chicken sandwich rages on. Carl’s Jr., Burger King and McDonald’s recently entered the fray in the so-called chicken sandwich wars, and they’re not alone. Kentucky Fried Chicken and Wendy’s have added new chicken sandwiches to their menu, and even Taco Bell has revived its Naked Chicken Chalupa, which has a shell made with chicken meat, as a contender in combat. “Now it’s just required that everyone have a chicken...

Throwing money around won’t make Los Angeles more affordable

With even iconic Venice Beach covered with tents and ravaged by skyrocketing crime, Los Angeles is home to the nation’s largest unsheltered homeless population. While there’s an obvious need for action, Mayor Eric Garcetti’s announced plans to spend $1 billion this year to combat homelessness and L.A.’s affordable housing shortage show he believes indiscriminately shoveling money at the situation will make it better. It won’t. We’ve seen how Los Angeles manages money. Projects financed with the ...

The Joe Biden I knew and now disagree with

Years ago many doubted the dreams of Joseph R. Biden, Jr. when he said when asked that his primary goal in life was to be the president of the United States of America. I didn’t…. And then Beau Biden, (real name Joseph R. Biden, III, also another Syracuse University College of Law grad) said “Promise Me Dad” to his father before he passed away in 2017. Then the book with that title came out shortly thereafter  and old cynical libertarian anarcho-capitalist Dick Boddie read it and had some positi...

Rialto pyrotechnics company rebounds from ‘devastating’ pandemic, plans 250 fireworks shows this year

This Fourth of July, Jim Souza will have something extra special to celebrate: the rebounding of his family pyrotechnics business that was crippled by the coronavirus pandemic last year. When the pandemic prompted restrictions of public events nationwide in March 2020, Pyro Spectaculars by Souza in Rialto, one of the biggest producers of pyrotechnic extravaganzas nationwide, took a major hit. Sales declined by 90%. More than 300 scheduled Fourth of July events dwindled to less than 20, and Souza...

44% of world sees U.S. as dangerous to democracy

Now that everyone has seen our normal-guy president not making an ass of himself in Cornwall at the G7, and then not kowtow to the Russian dictator in Zurich, I don’t know, maybe the numbers are better. But just last month, before Joe Biden had his first chance as president to walk the world stage, 44% of people polled in 53 countries around the globe saw the United States as a danger not just to democracy in general but to the prospects for democracy in their very own countries. And, yes, we’re...

The Latest: Protests decry Brazil policies as toll tops 500K

By The Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO — Anti-government protesters have taken to the streets in cities across Brazil as the nation’s confirmed death toll from COVID-19 soared past half a million. It’s a tragedy many critics blame on President Jair Bolsonaro’s attempt to minimize the disease. Thousands gathered Saturday in Rio de Janeiro, waving flags reading “Get out Bolsonaro.” Other marchers hoisted posters reading: “500 thousand deaths.

Repeal the 2001, 2002 authorizations for use of military force

On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted 268 to 161 to repeal the 2002 authorization for use of military force in Iraq. The AUMF, directed at the regime of Saddam Hussein, has long since lost its relevance. As with the 2001 AUMF passed after the attacks of Sept. 11, the 2002 AUMF wrongly cedes war-making powers to the executive branch while letting Congress shirk its constitutional authority. Both AUMFs should be repealed once and for all. The U.S. Constitution is clear. Article I, Sectio...

Black history is more than Juneteenth, Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks

The first time Olani LaBeaud learned in detail about Juneteenth — a day in history that marks the end of slavery in America — was toward the end of high school, in an AP history class. She was in her first year of college at Cal State Long Beach when she heard about the Tulsa Massacre — a race riot in 1921 when mobs of White residents, some deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and destroyed homes, killing more than 800 people and wounding many others.

End the War on Drugs

Fifty years ago, the United States launched the War on Drugs. The results are clear. The policy of federal drug prohibition, aimed at combating drug use, abuse, cultivation and distribution, brought a sledgehammer approach that has only compounded the problems associated with illicit drugs. “It is, in my view, as I have indicated, drug traffic is public enemy number one domestically in the United States today, and we must wage a total offensive, worldwide, nationwide, government wide, and if, I ...
