California drivers tend to think their turn signals are vestigial organs, something that exists existentially but doesn't really matter, which makes d...
If there is one thing that we can all agree on about Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), it is that he is a staunch advocate of state rights and local control. But his belief in local control over local affairs clearly does not extend to those who actually live in Washington, D.C.
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.
I was shocked and dismayed at a meeting yesterday of the Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW) to consider S. 659, the so-called "Bipartisan Sportsmen Act," which included an unrelated amendment that weakens our nation's drinking water protections.
As we watch the Republican primary unfold, it's easy to forget for most of the candidates, there are two campaigns. There's only one official campaign, of course, but with one notable exception, every single one of the GOP candidates has a multi-million dollar super PAC supporting them.
Sen. Cruz's Expatriate Terrorist Act would allow bureaucrats to strip citizenship from U.S. citizens on the dangerously vague grounds of "assistance" to a terrorist group. Americans could lose their citizenship without any trial, conviction, or review by another agency. For Americans abroad, the bureaucrats would even have the ability to deny the right to travel home while a lawsuit is pending in U.S. courts.
On Friday afternoon, Marco Rubio's town hall event in Henniker, New Hampshire was my first chance to see him in person.
The winner of the Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award was none other than Chelsea Clinton. There's a word for what she is doing, and it is called "fearmongering."
For more than 30 years, I have been unearthing problems with the way the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) sells coal that belongs to the American people. Rather than serving the interests of the American taxpayer and the climate, the federal program has done what's best for coal companies.
Now that the primaries are getting a lot closer, some are doing mental pretzel-bends to rationalize their gut feeling about Trump's inevitable loss (since their gut feeling can't possibly be wrong, of course.)
A document published by the Public Relations Society of America, discovered by DeSmog, reveals that from the onset of its public relations campaign, the oil industry courted mainstream media reporters to help it sell the idea of lifting the ban on crude oil exports to the American public and policymakers.
Sometimes, figuratively speaking, all the money in the world can't change a political outcome. This very idea runs counter to all the dire warnings about money's corruptive influence on American politics, of course, but it makes it no less true -- at least in certain situations.
Let's get on with the remaining 2016 best and worst awards. One warning: it's a very long column, so we encourage readers to pace themselves.
Just like the holidays, tax season seems to creep up before you know it. While you may be thinking creep is the only thing the holidays and taxes have...
Recently, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies released a report highlighting the lack of diversity among U.S. Senate staffers, particularly at the senior level. Latinos make up over 16 percent of the U.S. population but only 2.1 percent of top Senate staff.
