Hold off on Ruth Bader Ginsburg replacement: Tom Campbell

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg deserves all the tributes she has been receiving. Her record of perseverance in overcoming many obstacles placed in her path just because she was a woman is an inspiration to all Americans. Her judicial record is a testament to a consistently liberal jurisprudence, well reasoned within the traditional rules of legal argument. She served America well. Much more should be said about Justice Ginsburg, by many far more qualified than I; but there is an immediate issue tha...

Not all Californians are sold on split roll, affirmative action

While 60 percent of likely California voters say they’ll be voting for Joe Biden this November, they’re not nearly as convinced by split roll or bringing back affirmative action, according to a recent survey by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California.

Evangelicals Fuel Trump’s Hopes For Pennsylvania Victory

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s homestretch push to repeat his razor thin victory in Pennsylvania four years ago won’t happen without white evangelicals, and there are signs that critical component of his coalition hasn’t lost the faith.

And while some born-again voters had misgivings about Trump in 2016, they helped him eke out a 44,000-vote margin of victory in the pivotal swing state. T...

It’s Time to Rein in the Fed

At the Kansas City Federal Reserve’s virtual Jackson Hole economic-policy symposium, Fed chairman Jerome Powell drove a final stake into the legendary inflation fighter Paul Volcker’s Fed. The new orthodoxy promises easy money as far as the eye can see and holds that inflation is good -- not Venezuelan and Zimbabwean hyperinflation of course, just a moderate dose -- thus ensuring that a dollar every year is worth less. Americans should be afraid.Powell announced the Fed’s new inflation-averaging...
