One of President Trump’s most important economic advisors is a complete nutcase and the President would do well to ignore him.
We know that President Trump isn’t afraid to change his mind, and he’s proving that again with his recent reversals on foreign policy issues. How can we better understand the President’s decision to shift his foreign policy focus?
Don’t kid yourselves – the Supreme Court has been politicized for a very long time.
The politicization of the Court long predates Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s field-marshaling last year. In 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt was so frustrated by the Court that he threatened to “pack” it in order to ensure that New Deal legislation would not be struck down as unconstitutional. By 1942, FDR had appointed seven of the nine justices to the Court, which radically expanded the government’s powers under the Commerce Clause. Americans would see another long stretch of radical constitutional jurisprudence during the reign of the Warren Court in the 1960s.
History tells us that there’s nothing new or “astonishing” about the Republican Party’s recognition of the Court’s political importance.

The media is doing themselves (and their readers) a disservice by continuing to lean so heavily on anonymous sources to support their stories.
Consumer perception of United Airlines has collapsed to a ten-year low, in large part due to the recent fiasco where a passenger was dragged off of a flight kicking and screaming.
Um, so this is a thing. Neo-Nazis are actually tearing the world of “furries” (or adults who dress in full body fur costumes) apart.
