Garcetti dives into LAUSD, UTLA strike talks, with presidential ambitions on the line

With tens of thousands of teachers striking all over the city he governs, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti stepped up to a City Hall podium last week with a message: “This is the time to make an agreement,” Garcetti said, the first day of a teacher strike that over the next five days would ripple across the region and the nation.

All We Did Was Survive: The State of the Pro-Life Movement Under President Trump

ABSTRACT: The pro-life movement in America seemed in dire straits in 2016, with losses on almost every front. Donald Trump’s surprising win appears to have stalled the abortion juggernaut. An escape, however, is not a triumph. Dunkirk was not Normandy. Abortion is here to stay as long as millions of young Christians are uninformed, unequipped, and unconcerned. We asked Scott Klusendorf, president of Life Training Institute, to give a state of the movement on the pro-life cause under t...

A conspiracy of dunces

Just before Christmas, a story broke that seemed too strange — and too hypocritical — to be true. As Democratic Party elders were trying to stifle loutish impeachment threats by fanatical House freshmen, it was revealed that Democratic operatives had used cyber fraud to manipulate the 2017 Alabama Senate race. It’s hard to know precisely who masterminded the plot because the perpetrators have lawyered up and are pointing fingers at one another. But according to the New York Times and subsequent ...

‘Impressive’ Ocasio-Cortez Has An Unlikely Fan: Fox News’ Laura Ingraham

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has earned an unlikely admirer: Fox News host and conservative pundit Laura Ingraham, whom Ocasio-Cortez herself has criticized on Twitter. During Ingraham’s show “Ingraham Angle” this week, the host heaped praise on Ocasio-Cortez — whose politics couldn’t be further left of Ingraham’s — two nights in a row. On Wednesday evening, Ingraham spoke at length about how “impressive” Ocasio-Cortez’s defeat of longtime Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) was and prai...

Hawkish establishment goes after Tulsi Gabbard

This year it seems every Democrat with a minimum of name recognition is considering running for president. For the party, the surge of enthusiasm comes with a few risks. The biggest is a messy intra-party fight. And so far, the worst sign of the consequences of that conflict is the early effort to torpedo the nascent campaign of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. Gabbard isn’t like the Democrats’ typical candidates. But she’s not one of the restive moderates or the activist socialists, either. On clo...
