Trending: Fuel for Thought

The New York Times has spent a lot of time smearing President Trump’s nominees for his Cabinet.

President Donald Trump is doing more than opening the door to Big Labor for the GOP — he’s propping it open and welcoming the rest of the GOP inside.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was one of the chief opponents to Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, but it’s hard to understand why when they SEEM TO agree on school choice.

Democrats fear Betsy DeVos because she offers the GOP a chance at winning back the black vote.

A modest proposal for filibuster reform in the Senate that would give the minority the ability to draw attention to important issues but allow the majority to eventually overcome obstructionism.

The Brexit process continues as the UK’s parliament just cleared another hurdle on their way to independence from Europe.

Ryan Holiday helped write the playbook for opposition “trolling” that Milo and the alt-right are now using, and he wishes that liberals would stop playing right into their hands.

While modern Americans (and journalists in particular) love getting as much data as possible before a big event… we need to stop pretending that we can predict everything that might happen.

Trump’s nationalism is nothing like the nationalism of the past.

Trump’s nationalism, however, is fundamentally different from earlier volkish nationalisms. For one, it does not define the nation in racial or religious terms…

 It grows out of legitimate concerns about terrorism (in the case of Muslim immigrants), the rule of law (in the case of illegal immigrants from Mexico and elsewhere), and more generally, social cohesion and the well-being of American workers of all races and religions.

Fans of Ricky Gervais and the British version of “the Office” rejoice… they’re back… kind of.

Sadly, Richard Hatch who became famous as Captain Apollo in the original version of the TV series “Battlestar Galactica” has passed away at age 71.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
