Did Second Amendment Supporters Dodge A Bullet In Kansas?

#GUNVOTE Kansas – -(AmmoLand.com)- The primary race for the senate seat being vacated by the retirement of Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) holds a lot of lessons for Second Amendment supporters. In fact, one could argue that Second Amendment supporters may have dodged a bullet. Often, at least in some primaries, Second Amendment supporters may see a number of candidates with good track records running for the nomination. Such was the case in Kansas where Roger Marshall and Kris Kobach were the top...

The Horrifying ICE Documentary Trump Doesn’t Want You to See

In 2017, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), in their infinite wisdom, granted a pair of filmmakers unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to their officers and facilities. And for nearly three years, Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz captured the human toll of Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy, which saw undocumented families ripped apart and placed in ruinous detention centers. According to Clusiau and Schwarz, ICE—who were contractually allowed to review cuts of the series bu...

Why I Still Have Questions For Bill Barr, One Year After Our Last Conversation

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. Before Bill Barr was the 85th attorney general of the United States, he was, among other things, on the Board of Directors of Time Warner. That was how I first came to meet him. I was working for HBO and its sister channel Cinemax at that time, and we connected over his appreciation of a Cinemax show that I worked on called “Banshee.” “Banshee” was a violent, pulpy series that told the story of an ex-con who comes int...

I didn't watch Trump's interview with Chris Wallace, but I'll read the transcript.

Why didn't I watch?! I told myself to watch, but I did not. I've turned away from watching the news on television. It's becoming a real aversion. I prefer to get my information from reading, so let's look at this transcript. I'll just do a few excepts, I think:WALLACE: But -- but this isn't burning embers, sir? This is a forest fire.TRUMP: No, no. But I don't say -- I say flames, we'll put out the flames. And we'll put out in some cases just burning embers. We also have burning embers. We have...

Opinion: The downfall of Jeff Sessions

It was late February of 2016, which now seems like generations ago, when Jeff Sessions was the first United States senator to endorse then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. The move caught many by surprise. Trump was not a serious candidate, the conventional wisdom held, so why would an experienced senator like Jeff Sessions back him? Led by his strongly held views on immigration, which aligned with Trump's, Sessions boarded the Trump train at its first stop and rode it all the way to the top...

"Why isn't Tuberville on the front page of the NYT?"/"If Tuberville had lost it would have been at the very top."
