Could Chameleon Charlie Crist Pay For Betraying Gun Owners?

Could Chameleon Charlie Crist Pay For Betraying Gun Owners?, iStock-884197090 Florida – -( If there is one saga that Second Amendment supporters are all too familiar with, it is the one-time friend who turns on them and supports onerous restrictions on their rights. We’ve seen it with Bob Casey and Tim Walz. Then there was Kirsten Gillibrand and Steve Bullock. To that list, we can add Charlie Crist. Like the others, Crist once had a solid record defending our rights. But he has ...

Second GOP Governor Bucks Trump In Final Days Of Campaign

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) said he “voted for Ronald Reagan” in this year’s presidential election after deciding he could support neither President Donald Trump nor Democratic nominee Joe Biden for the job. In an interview with The Washington Post on Thursday, the governor said he voted by mail last week. He said he wrote Reagan’s name on his ballot to make a statement and felt he could comfortably do so in a state where Biden holds a significant lead in polls. The move comes as he works...

Here we are now, going to the North side

 When I first moved here, we were in Indiana's 7th district, represented by hereditary congressman Andre Carson, and voting against him every two years was a November joy.We've since been redistricted, barely, into the 5th district, representing the northside 'burbs, with nearly polar opposite politics. Long considered a very safe Republican seat, the primary contest this year mostly consisted of GOP front-runners trying to outdo each other in bragging how much they hated socialism and would hel...

Who Would Biden Appoint? Andrew Cuomo as Attorney General

Opinion Governor Andrew M. Cuomo stands with Moms Demand Action, IMG nygovcuomo New York/Delaware/United States – -( Who is elected President matters – and not just because the President signs legislation and has the bully pulpit at his (or someday, her) disposal. It also matters because the President of the United States can appoint officials to the Cabinet, and those are often the people who would make a lot of the policy decisions. This is why Second Amendment supporters sho...

Daines Deserves Second Term To Defend Second Amendment

Daines Deserves Second Term To Defend Second Amendment, iStock-884194872 Montana – -( It is mind-boggling to think that Montana is a state where a champion of the Second Amendment could be in a potentially close race. But lately, RealClearPolitics has the Senate race between Senator Steve Daines and Governor Steve Bullock as a toss-up, with Daines holding an average lead of 1.6 percentage points. When you look at the record Daines has posted, this shouldn’t even be a close race....

Opinion: What Ronald Reagan knew about being a VIP patient

When the shots were heard, the Secret Service agents did what they were trained to do and shoved President Ronald Reagan in the back of the limousine, using their bodies as human shields. As they piled on to him, Reagan reportedly said, "I think you broke my rib!" In the next moment he began to cough up blood and the limousine altered course from the White House to George Washington University Hospital.

"The conservatism of talk radio only partly overlaps with institutional conservatism, that of right-wing Washington think tanks, magazines and the Republican Party itself."

"By the early 2000s, it had embraced a version of conservatism that is less focused on free markets and small government and more focused on ethnonationalism and populism. It is, in short, the core of Trumpism — now and in the future, with or without a President Trump.... If you visit a carpentry shop or factory floor, or hitch a ride with a long-haul truck driver, odds are that talk radio is a fixture of the aural landscape. But many white-collar workers, journalists included, struggle to under...

‘Tear Down This Wall’: ‘Veep’ Writer Ian Martin to Pen Cold War Satire

Ted Turner Asks Carl Sagan “Are You a Socialist?;” Sagan Responds Thoughtfully (1989)

Socialism should not be a scare word in the U.S. Were it not for socialists like Eugene V. Debs and the labor movements organized around his presidential campaigns in the early 20th century, reforms like the 8-hour workday, worker safety protections, women’s suffrage, minimum wage, the abolition of child labor, and vacation and sick time would likely never have made it into a major party’s platform. The legacy of this strain of socialism in the U.S. endured, Jill Lepore writes at The New...

Trump's constant lying has finally caught up with him

President Donald Trump at the end of the commencement ceremony on June 13, 2020 in West Point, New York.

Them's Fightin' Words (Quote of the Day - Glenn Reynolds Edition)

 I have said repeatedly that some time beginning in the 1960's the Left's infiltration of education, media and politics kicked into high gear.  A few years later, they had control of all three.  That was the period when the Right stopped being their "loyal opposition" and became "The Enemy."  Opposition to Leftist ideology and policy wasn't from ignorance or misunderstanding, not because those on the Right were too stupid to understand (though that was part of it), it was because the Right was e...

Immigration reform and inclusivity are essential to America’s prosperity

These days, it’s easy to be skeptical of the American Dream. Even before the pandemic, which sent our nation’s unemployment rate soaring above 10 percent, we faced growing income inequality, stunted economic mobility, and deeply embedded structural racism. And yet my life is proof that the American Dream is achievable — if we have leaders who are willing to support it. I came to this country in 1982 as a Guatemalan teenager. I had nothing, not even the legal right to be here. But before you pass...

Divided U.S. resists coming together with Trump fighting coronavirus

It seems like such a quaint idea from some other era. When the president is hurting, Americans come together. When Ronald Reagan was shot, it seemed like Republicans and Democrats set aside their differences. When John F. Kennedy’s fate was not yet known, people began to grieve together. When Dwight Eisenhower had heart attacks, when Franklin Roosevelt had numerous health issues, Americans seemed to rally. When we support each other, America is strong. But when President Donald Trump tested posi...
