I was not in my hometown of Ithaca (NY) for the Women’s March.

Ithaca, in case you didn’t know, is like Berkeley, California, only smaller. Here are the directions I used to give to my house, from November 2008:

To live in Ithaca is to live in a city alive with anti-Bush, anti-war...

According to reports, a similar tactic was used to evade congressional opposition to transferring funds to the...

Elizabeth Warren always has been known for having sharp elbows.

She bullied her way through academia. It’s a trait that has carried over to her politics.

Warren’s first instinct always is to attack in very personal ways, then play victim when there is pushback.

I experienced a small example of that during Warren’s 2012...

Remember when Tea Party participants were mocked for carrying copies of the Constitution?

In 2010, The Hill reported:

Demand for copies of the U.S. Constitution is skyrocketing.

The increased interest comes amid the rise of the Tea Party movement and as both parties cite the Constitution to advance their agendas.

The removal of a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House was one of Obama’s earliest moves to demote the special relationship with Britain. It was symbolic in so many ways, and served as the gateway drug for his world apology tour to follow.

Just as symbolic is that on his...

Ballotpedia is one of our favorite reference websites. It is like Wikipedia for politics, but more in-depth and reliable.

Ballotpedia just released a statistical analysis of federal judicial vacancies as Trump enters office, and likely to become available during his term.

That takes on great importance given that Democrats in 2013 busted the filibuster...

Obama is ending his presidency not only with a flurry of commutations, but also with appointments to various commissions and governmental entities.

One of those entities is the United States Holocaust Memorial Council, to which Obama just appointed Ben Rhodes. The Jerusalem Post reports:
