The debate surrounding congressional approval of “fast track” trade authority has officially taken a swan dive through the looking glass. Obama wants it. House republicans want it.

It appears that black activists in Detroit are so impressed with how Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby is doing in Baltimore that they’ve adopted the same strategy in Cleveland, based on reports by Cleveland.com.

Saudi Arabia facing tough choices in Yemen

Posted by

Every headline today concerning Saudi Arabia and the conflict in Yemen contains the words “crunch time.” Every. Single. One. It’s an accurate assessment, of course, and it does a good job of describing the urgency that Saudi and western powers are finding themselves operating under. Saudi Arabia has now spent 11…

I enjoy reading or hearing stories that humanize candidates. The story of Mitt Romney helping to remove a stump from a neighbor’s yard was a good one, or how the Perry family adopted Marcus Luttrell — also a heartwarming, warm fuzzy inducing tale. Even John McCain recounting his time as a…

Jon Stewart on the NYT’s Coverage of Rubio: How is this front-page news?

Posted by
6/11/2015 at 11:45am
The NYT published an article last week pretending Sen. Rubio’s traffic tickets from the 90s were scandalicious. Mockery of the “troubling” allegations ensued and the NYT was rightly mocked. This week, the NYT again dropped a ridiculous “scoop.” This time, they portrayed the Rubios as spendthrifts who had luxury speed boats…

Atlantic writer Russell Berman wonders: …[Obama’s] decision to champion his signature achievement in such pointed terms just weeks before the high court’s ruling is due raised the question of whether Obama was trying to jawbone the justices at the 11th hour. …“It seems so cynical,” he said, “to want to take coverage away…
