Immigration — Issue of the Century

AfricaC1502_X_th_C

Patrick J. Buchanan “Trump’s immigration proposals are as dangerous as they are stunning,” railed amnesty activist Frank Sharry. “Trump … promises to rescind protections for Dreamers and deport them. He wants to redefine the constitutional definition of U.S. citizenship as codified by the 14th Amendment. He plans to impose a moratorium on legal immigration.” While …

Could Clinton Lose

By Susan Estrich The chattering class, fed by the drumbeat of conservatives and the criticism of look-alike Republicans, is actually acknowledging that the former Secretary of State is not made entirely of Teflon. Some of her support is soft. Some Democrats don’t like her. Never have. Inevitability is generally a curse in politics. “Is he …

Insiders, Outsiders needed in Congress

By Lee H. Hamilton Members of Congress get categorized in all sorts of ways. They’re liberal or conservative; Republican or Democrat; interested in domestic affairs or specialists in foreign policy. There’s one very important category, though, that I never hear discussed: whether a member wants to be an inside player or an outside player. Yet …

Voting for the Party or the Person

By James Clingman/NNPA Columnist We say we have “voting power,” but we have settled merely for the “power to vote.”  We fight for the “right to vote” but we fail to “vote right.” Voting is a means to gain political power, not an end that simply allows one to participate in the act. As true …

Grand bargain or raw deal? Many elderly

Many elderly Americans are close enough to poverty’s edge that Social Security cuts of any size could push them over the brink.   Following the government shutdown drama, politicians in Washington appear hopelessly divided, according to conventional wisdom. Fair enough. But there’s at least one area where many politicians from both of the major parties …

Take the House Republicans’ recent votes to deny food and health care to millions of Americans. Those were statements of values. The first vote was to cut …

It’s all their fault: The shutdown as well as the looming debt ceiling crisis is entirely a Republican Party production.

governmentshutdown

Everyone pretty much agrees that what’s going on in Washington right now ranks up there with the dumbest, most destructive episodes in our history. We are a great and powerful country, on the cusp of achieving that “Shining City upon a Hill” status that Puritan leader John Winthrop talked about nearly 400 years ago. I …
