It's safe to say, looking at who Donald Trump is turning to now, that it's unlikely there will be any progress on LGBT rights -- and would likely be great harm to them -- under a Trump presidency.
There's a pile of money hiding offshore. The stunning amount that continues to flow across American borders (and those of other countries), and eventually disappears into the pockets of the corporate and political elite, ultimately causes even more damage to our finances and our lives.
Now that Ted Cruz and John Kasich have dropped out of the race and Donald Trump is the "presumptive nominee," it's likely we'll see the GOP Establishment pretend to be rallying behind Trump while in reality helping him very little.
As an American living abroad I see first hand that for the United States to become a true force for good around the world, the Democratic Party must lead the charge in fighting against an American chauvinism that puts little value on the lives of people who are innocent bystanders to our supposed economic and military interests.
This is one of the rare occasions where the love of charters and the disinterest in teachers is right there under the President's name and not, say, a Secretary of Education. Public school teachers -- take your week of weak praise and get back to finishing the work you haven't done yet.
It is now official. Seventeen candidates ran for the Republican presidential nomination, and the sixteenth of these just suspended his campaign. This leaves Donald Trump as the last man standing.
As it turns out, you have been as sideswiped, as sucker-punched, as drop-kicked as the rest of us. We feel for you. And there can be no overstatement about it. Your party has done the unthinkable: It's made Donald Trump's ascendency to the GOP nomination for the president of the United States.
The Chief Justice has led the Court's conservative majority in a counterrevolution against the fruits of the civil rights movement. This is not a matter of happenstance, but a defining feature of his legal career.
Banks and payday lenders have had a good deal going for a while: They could break the law, trick their customers in illegal ways, and not have to face any consumer lawsuits.
Now that Governor Kasich is suspending his campaign, will the party come together and enthusiastically support its standard-barer?
While members of the left have traditionally been the ones speaking out against over-incarceration, there is a growing consensus among modern conservatives that current use of jails -- especially with regards to pretrial practices -- is at odds with their core principles: limited government and individual liberty.
Defeating ISIS demands an approach that is patient, highly sophisticated, and multi-pronged, one tightly focused on their vulnerabilities, and a thorough knowledge of the group's history, intentions, motivations and strategies.
All we know for sure is that Ted Cruz dropping out of the Republican race has changed the Democratic race almost as profoundly as the Republican one.
Hillary represents timid incrementalism at a time when the people are restless for bold transformational change, and at a time when such dramatic change is needed to ensure our survival as a species. Fortunately, we have another choice.
"Still grading?" I asked my colleague, a professor at a Georgia college, as she carefully viewed her laptop a few weeks ago. "I'm finished with that," she told me. "Now I'm pricing bulletproof vests." She had good reason to do so.
There's no denying that our nation faces a homelessness crisis. But media coverage about this crisis, and the policy ideas proposed to address it, often exclude a huge portion of the homeless population: women and their children.
The decision to put off a rate hike is good news, but the real question is why the Fed is even considering a rate hike. Just to remind everyone, the point of raising interest rates is to slow the economy. Higher interest rates discourage home buying, investment, and act in other ways to slow the economy.
Haberman is a seasoned, smart journalist with a stellar reputation, and that makes her story -- and her "he's complicated" rationale for writing it -- all the more baffling.
