Five Thoughts on the Supreme Court After Ginsburg

Like many of you, I am devastated by the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg. She was not only a giant of the Court, but a true American hero who fought to help bring the promise of the Constitution to all Americans. It is a disgusting reality of our present national crisis that our […]

In Three Quotes, Republicans Admit the "Great Party Switch"

Republicans and their amen corner in the right-wing media are trying to perpetuate yet another hoax on the American people. In a nutshell, they claim that history ended in 1865 or, at the latest, 1965. But sadly for them, three of their leading lights past and present—Cindy Hyde-Smith, Trent Lott and Strom Thurmond--already gave the […]

FDR's Words of Resolve: 'We Are Now in This War. We Are All in It."

If you need a break from the current American confusion, fear and loathing surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, let me suggest as an antidote reading President Roosevelt’s December 9, 1941 “fireside chat” radio broadcast to the nation. At a time of far greater peril than we face today, FDR delivered a message of inspiration, courage and steely resolve to […]

The Most Important Issue for Democrats in 2020? The Courts

As the 2020 election season heats up, voters' priorities are coming into sharper focus. As in years past, there is a great divergence in what each party ranks as its top issues. Earlier this year, the Pew Research Center found that Republicans identify terrorism, the economy, Social Security, immigration, and the military as their five […]

Republicans' Message to Jewish Americans: Everything We Hate is Like the Holocaust

For Republicans, the gathering of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has become an annual ritual in their hyperbolic effort to peel away Jewish Americans who overwhelmingly give their votes to Democrats. But the GOP brought an extra sense of urgency to last week's 2019 AIPAC Policy Conference. Less than six months after Democrats […]

A Higher Patriotism

Just in time for the Fourth of July, Gallup released the results of its latest survey of patriotism. Its primary finding? For the first time in Gallup's 18-year history asking U.S. adults how proud they are to be Americans, fewer than a majority say they are "extremely proud." Currently, 47% describe themselves this way, down […]

Abortion, Free Speech, and the Right to Lie

In a recent episode of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver led a 20-minute deep dive into the world of "crisis pregnancy centers" (CPCs). With more than 3,500 such locations around the nation (more than double the number of facilities providing abortion services in the United States), CPCs exist to dissuade women from choosing to […]

Republicans' Lesson for Democrats: Next President Must "Look Backwards" at GOP Crimes

If nothing else, Republicans over the past few weeks have delivered an important civics lesson to the American people in general--and Democrats in particular. Facing a growing mountain of irrefutable evidence that the incompetent, out-of-his-depth GOP president of the United States has been enmeshed in a network of ties to Russian business and government interests […]

The Difference Between 2018 and the 2010 Midterms? The Truth

As the new year begins, press, pundits and politicians alike are saying 2018 could be the year of the "blue wave." Led by a historically unpopular first-year president and still smarting from embarrassing losses in Virginia and Alabama, many Republicans are talking out loud about "bloodbath" in next November's midterm elections. While Democrats are fielding […]

Vergangenheitsbewältigung in America

This year represents the 25th anniversary of one of the great enduring memes of modern American culture and politics. In his thundering speech at the 1992 Republican National Convention, former Nixon hatchet man and Adolf Hitler admirer-turned GOP presidential candidate Pat Buchanan darkly warned of a "cultural war" already underway, one he deemed a "struggle […]
