Color, COVID and the Coup

Trump Rightly Vetoes Pentagon Budget, for the Wrong Reasons

Trump Rightly Vetoes Pentagon Budget, for the Wrong Reasons

President Trump raised hackles in Congress last week with his veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

Lost Causes, from the Confederacy to Trump

Lost Causes, from the Confederacy to Trump

Count on the National Popular Vote, Not the Electoral College

Donald Trump may be the last loser to win through the Electoral College. Two of the last three presidencies, Trump’s included, have gone to the candidate who lost the popular vote. In 2000, the Supreme Court halted the Florida recount, handing the election to George W. Bush. It was later… »
