There is no question of more pressing and fundamental importance to modern American constitutional law: Is it proper for judges to broadly and systema...
We ought to be reminded that by closing your Facebook tab, you don't have to be solely dependent on Facebook for our news needs. I know I'm not -- I rely on a variety of websites on the political spectrum to help inform me of my views and what is going on in the world.
With the havoc that could be wreaked by the Zika virus, the right-wing feel they must "find" money in the budget to offset the research and development necessary to be ready for it. But, $25 billion to shut down the government? Not a problem.
The success of Donald Trump and the rise of right-wing nationalism in the United States should come as no great surprise, considering the strength of right-wing movements in many other developed nations.

2016 is the year I have realized that the men on the other side of the window are not all religious or political conservatives. Many of them are liberal in their worldview and the champions of progressive causes.

The Indiana primary, pivoting as it did on trade, signaled something else: the elaborate faith in a set of invisible hands that underpinned much of modern conservatism, has lost its grip on a huge swathe of the electorate.
Judges who draw their power from Article III have a duty to exercise independent judgment in interpreting the meaning of the Constitution and the meaning of subordinate enactments.
Young people are generally more progressive and accepting to social change than generations past, but conservatism will not fade. Millennial conservatives and our passion are what is needed to save the Conservative movement that is so deeply rooted in values and American exceptionalism.
Americans will spend $22 billion on Mother's Day this year. $22 billion. That's $258 for each of the 85 million U.S. moms. Why not just give them the money. Even though it won't make a dent in the disparity of income between moms and dads, at least it's something. They deserve it, right?
