The meeting was effectively over. Betty, the incontinent German Shepherd, smiled at us, panting, from beside the roaming fan. She saw me see her and hobbled over, sticking her head between my legs for attention.
Service members aren't allowed to become publicly involved in partisan politics. However, they do speak indirectly, via polls and contributions.
"Those who corrupt the public mind are just as evil as those who steal from the public purse."--Adlai Stevenson, 23rd Vice President of the United Sta...
I can now say I have felt the Bern, from beginning to end. I have seen how the Bernie revolution began and I have also seen it entering the homestretch of campaigning during the primary season, one short week before California and a few other states become the last to vote.
The liberty movement has been trying to put a dent in the two-party system for decades. Well, folks, an authoritarian egomaniac has now done that work for you.
The central thesis of this series is that the 21st century will not be yet another "American Century." However, one listening to the palaver of many of the current presidential candidates could come to believe that America was somehow in decline. It isn't.
RULE 40(b): MYTH AND REALITY As we reflect on what might happen in the important New York primary today, lawyers behind the scenes are looking at ...
Cruz kept his powder dry in the earlier primaries and caucuses, refusing to get caught up in the name calling and sniping that characterized much of the campaign.

The Soviet Union seemed permanent and invincible, until it didn't. When it fell, far more suddenly than anyone thought it would or could, the festering rot of decades was exposed to the world. We're seeing this happen, in real time, with the Republican Party.
A full 22 conservative thinkers (although, with the likes of Glenn Beck and William Kristol in the mix, we do of necessity use that term quite broadly) all weighed in on why Donald Trump is a terrible candidate for Republicans to consider making their presidential nominee, and why Trump is an all-around terrible human being.
Time for Jeb to Move On Bob Dole ran for president each time the job was open - in 1996, 1988, and 1980, and for vice president in 1976, forty years ...
A matchup between the non-interventionist Republican Donald Trump and the interventionist Democrat Hillary Clinton would not be a paradigm shift in foreign affairs, as much as it would be a trip back to the future.
The problem for the RNC only gets worse when you consider the threat of Donald Trump's poll numbers. If there's one candidate right now who seems poised for majority delegate dominance, it's Trump. This leaves the RNC with two options, and neither are good.
I returned home to Los Angeles exactly six years ago this month to prepare for a February exploratory trip to Washington, DC, New York and then a week in New Hampshire to "test the waters" for a possible run.
In the Republican debates Jeb Bush had the gall to claim that George W. Bush kept us safe, even though more than 3,000 Americans perished nearly a year into his brother's Presidency.
