Eric Garcetti would ‘look seriously’ at a U.S. Senate bid; what else could his future hold?

At the City Hall press conference in January where Eric Garcetti took the unusual step of announcing that he was not a candidate for president, a reporter asked if he was ruling out a White House run forever or only in 2020. The silly question drew a silly answer. “Garcetti 2040! I’d like to say that right now,” the Los Angeles mayor said, laughing. It’s pretty obvious that Garcetti aspires to run for president in a year to be determined. The serious question is what the 48-year-old Democrat cou...

Harris sends message to old-guard: Every era has its end

California Sen. Kamala Harris sent a subtle signal to the old-guard of Democratic politics that every era has its end.


"As a podcaster, the 51-year-old Rogan is basically what you’d get if a less-neurotic Marc Maron and a less-manic Alex Jones had a baby who looked like a muscular thumb."

"An enthusiastic, self-deprecating lunk with an abiding fondness for both snake oil and its salesmen, Rogan is funny and friendly and easy to like. His personal politics are a bit hard to nail down. He is not a supporter of President Donald Trump and does not generally host the sorts of overtly political figures who are fixtures on Fox News. 'I go left on everything. Basically except guns,' he said recently, though he is also very clearly a libertarian, at least temperamentally. He reminds me of...

Left’s Latest Demand: Race-Based Reparations

Opinion Left's Latest Demand: Race-Based Reparations USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Having embraced “Medicare-for-all,” free college tuition and a Green New Deal that would mandate an early end of all oil, gas and coal-fired power plants, the Democratic Party's lurch to the left rolls on. Presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren both called last week for race-based reparations for slavery. “Centuries of slavery, Jim Crow, legal discrimination and segregation, and discrimination tha...

Solo Female Travel in England, Scotland, and Wales — A UK Guide

I have spent a LOT of time traveling alone in England, Scotland, and Wales. Much more than I originally intended. I went to Europe without a plan, ended up living for months at a time in two different cities in England, and used them as a base to explore the country. I never thought the UK would become one of my most extensively traveled countries. At the time, I was more interested in warmer, sexier, more exotic travel destinations — the UK seemed so boring compared to Thailand or Italy or Sou...

Boyds At-One Thumbhole Stock breathes Fresh Life into a Remington Model 597 Rifle

Remington Model 597 Rifle USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Sometimes when you're a firearm collector (or more accurately, an accumulator) you pick up a piece or two that come along as part of the deal. For me it was a Remington Model 597 Ducks Unlimited rifle in 22 lr. I have plenty of rimfire rifles, but this one was part of a package deal that was too good to pass up. Back in 2011, Remington Arms partnered with Ducks Unlimited, the world's largest non-profit organization dedicated to conserving waterf...

Could the Twitter Primary Cost Democrats the Oval Office?

In my lifetime, I’ve never seen more presidential candidates advocate breaking more American constitutional, economic, and policy norms than I’ve seen from the Democratic field so far in 2019.

GOP’s New Tactic In NC-09: Blame Special Election On Democrats?

Warren Stands Behind Wonky Campaign Despite Lackluster Fundraising

BOSTON (AP) — Elizabeth Warren has spent much of the last decade as a leader of the Democratic Party’s liberal wing. But three and a half months into her presidential campaign, the Massachusetts senator is facing tough questions about fundraising and electability, along with lingering skepticism about her past claim to Native American identity. The longtime liberal superstar is embracing an uncomfortable role in the crowded 2020 contest: the underdog. “This is the race I want to run,” Warren ...
