Trump’s National Garden of American Heroes in MY Neighborhood?

It’s even near a subway station, so no wonder it’s popular with visitors to the area, domestic and international. City residents sometimes camp here, too, enjoying an easy get-away in nature. Its 174 campsites cost just $20 a night. Here’s a nice video about the park. The park is less than a mile from my house, so I’ve visite...

Reginald Hudlin Remembers Persuading Chadwick Boseman to Play Civil Rights Icon Thurgood Marshall

It takes a great man to play a great man; Chadwick Boseman did it four times!

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg were to leave the court, her departure might resemble Thurgood Marshall’s

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health is in the news again this year. She announced last month that she was being treated with chemotherapy — the fourth time since 1999 that she has battled cancer. After she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009, she resisted pressure to retire from the Supreme Court under the Obama administration. With multiple hospital stays this year and the cancer recurrence, many question how long she will be able to stay on the court and whether her tenure will outla...

History Is on the Side of Republicans Filling a Supreme Court Vacancy in 2020

If a Supreme Court vacancy opens up between now and the end of the year, Republicans should fill it. Given the vital importance of the Court to rank-and-file Republican voters and grassroots activists, particularly in the five-decade-long quest to overturn Roe v. Wade, it would be political suicide for Republicans to refrain from filling a vacancy unless some law or important traditional norm was against them. There is no such law and no such norm; those are all on their side. Choosing not to fi...

Did Second Amendment Supporters Dodge A Bullet In Kansas?

#GUNVOTE Kansas – -( 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...
