No surprise that almost four months into the Republican takeover of Congress, more time has been spent on immigration -- specifically, trying to reverse President Obama's executive actions shielding 5 million immigrants from deportation -- than almost anything else.
Cancer is not laughable -- it is devastating, and I am disgusted that this particular legislation is being sold as something that would protect the public.
As we move forward into March Madness, we look back at the hottest trending online privacy stories and discover a different form of madness. Some of the news is good, some is bad and some sends a message of hope for our future.
In seeking to perpetuate an indiscriminate "war of choice" on Obama's attorney general, whomever he or she might be, the GOP is repeating a grave mistake -- and poisoning what might otherwise be a cordial, or even productive, working relationship.

There can be no real peace with honor if women are left out. Without women at the table, women's rights will be an empty promise if peace is ever negotiated.

With the decision pending in just a couple of weeks on Library #14 for President #44, the binding force of these successive projects is the fact that there is not and never should be a single political narrative. Such shifting values rely instead on the bedrock of freedom to sustain the dynamic bonds of the social contract it upholds.
Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee showed everybody just how out of touch with reality they are by posting an asinine "press release" that relies on tired misrepresentations about the Obama administration's track record on immigration, wrapped in adorable gifs from your favorite teen movies.
It carries big ramifications for American politics, the Middle East, and relations between the Islamic world and the West. Most everything will be more inflamed, not least the Iranian nuclear controversy and the future of Palestine. And of course American politics.
While Obama has slowly stepped up transferring detainees already cleared by a multi-agency process for release from Guantanamo to other countries, his administration has dragged its feet on reviewing the 51 detainees who aren't yet cleared, out of the remaining 122.
American foreign policy is controlled by fools. What else can one conclude from the bipartisan demand that the U.S. intervene everywhere all the time, irrespective of consequences? No matter how disastrous the outcome, the War Lobby insists that the idea was sound. Any problems obviously result, it is claimed, from execution, a matter of doing too little: too few troops engaged, too few foreigners killed, too few nations bombed, too few societies transformed, too few countries occupied, too few years involved, too few dollars spent.

Last week I wrote about how the GOP continues to embarrass America. The consensus from the comments and tweets seems to be that one must have unquestioning and blind belief that the United States of America is exceptional in all regards, and that to deviate from that belief or question our superior standing in the world is unpatriotic.
With the advent of the 24-hour news cycle and the failure of bland candidates like Al Gore, the American people have spoken. They want an exciting, riveting, jaw-dropping and hope-inspiring President.
The Tea Partyers and members of Likud, including Benjamin Netanyahu, give no real alternatives to negotiated settlements other than war.
