Regardless of political ideology, educators must reclaim their profession. I know you don't seek attention. You just want to teach, but it's time for a PR offensive of your own. It's time for the experts to drive the narrative, and below are five ways to do that.
Being anti-immigrant is no longer the Trump brand, it's now the Republican brand and will be inescapable for the Republican nominee.
This past week, Donald Trump just did his most outrageous thing yet: he started being less outrageous. It's time to acknowledge he's too smart to risk flaming out. On the contrary, like any other politician, he'll reposition as needed to stay viable as the campaign trail winds on.
The first Fox News Republican Party Presidential debates are over. Not surprisingly Donald Trump entertained and insulted. The supporting cast for his new apprentice show mostly hung out in the background.
Joe Biden certainly has got the media talking. All it really took was one leak to Maureen Dowd and a meeting with Senator Elizabeth Warren, and he's now seriously considering it. But a Biden candidacy bears political examination beyond the simple question of "Will he or won't he run?"
This is pretty much as good a ticket as any party could hope for. First, they represent Ohio and Florida: perhaps the two most important states in the presidential election. Losing either would be a tremendous blow to the Democrats. Second, they combine age and youth.
FOX and the Republican elites have been playing the long game in the shadows. They thought they had their men in Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. What they didn't foresee was a celebrity billionaire with nothing to lose. Trump was also playing the long-game except right out in the open for all to see. And he is the one who might very well succeed.
With rising tuition costs and a growing reliance for college students to take out loans to pay for tuition, many millennials are looking to the field of candidates who are running for President of the United States in 2016 to address the student debt crisis.
tTe well-financed fast and furious campaign here against the nuclear deal and the near hysteria churned up on the subject has created a reality that bears remarkably little relationship to actual reality.
Read, or better yet, talk to a political reporter or Republican operative about the Donald and you find a pattern. Left, Middle and most of the Right there is contempt, head-shaking and bad, predictable jokes.
I continue to be fascinated at the powerful allure of food-on-a-stick mentality and how it correlates as a predictive quality of an America that insanely seems to have evolved into a politics-on-a-stick nation.
Conservative Rush Limbaugh stated that Trump, "comes across as somebody that says things (people) would like to say, things they have wanted to say, things they have hoped other people would say." In other words, he lets his inner racist shine through.
"We're going to push and push until some larger force makes us stop." David Addington, the legal adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, made that declaration to Jack Goldsmith of the Office of Legal Counsel in the months after September 11, 2001.
Kim is far more qualified to be president than Trump. She is way more famous. Her reality TV show was far better than Trump's. And Kim has 35 million followers on Twitter compared to Trump's paltry four million followers. It's not even close.
U.S. Republicans, Conservatives and the Israeli Government are playing politics with nuclear weapons. This must stop. People forget that diplomacy, not the military, won the Cold War.
They both appeal to our "shadow" side. That side of us that makes us sign up to cheat on the spouses we say we love, and possibly ruin the family we say we care more about than anything else in the whole world. That side of us that would say and do all kinds of things we'd be ashamed of if we didn't keep it in check.
