Culture of Corruption: Yacht Edition.

Remember the GOP Tax Scam? The one that was supposedly for working- and middle-class Americans and families? The one that only gave the richest 1% of Americans an average tax cut of $55,000 each while simultaneously raising health care premiums by nearly $2,000 for families buying health insurance on their own? The one that conveniently...

Trump’s Russia-First Agenda.

As expected, Trump blew up the NATO summit this morning, appearing to travel to the meeting with one goal in mind: spitting on U.S. allies and splintering key relationships.

The Patriotism of Resistance.

In the Donald Trump era, a record-low 47% of adults say they’re “extremely proud” to be American, down from 57% five years ago. With a President who embraces dictators over allies, works for his own benefit instead of his citzens’, who punishes women, families, and children for political points, it is a dark hour for...

Reality Check for Senator Collins on Roe.

Few who follow the courts will deny that there are currently 4 Justices on the Supreme Court ready to gut and repeal Roe v. Wade, criminalizing abortion and punishing women.
