Still, you can’t help but wonder where it comes from and how to undermine it […]

His political career was born out of the baseless, racist assertion that Barack Obama couldn’t possibly be a citizen. And Democrats will only defuse his conspiratorial smear-mongering if they stand together and call out all his attacks for what […]

Indiana was the 2nd state to pass an emergency manager law and 2nd state to realize it doesn’t solve their problems

Back in 2012, Indiana became the second state after Michigan to pass an emergency manager law that allows the state to take control from locally, democratically elected leaders and put it into the hands of an appointed bureaucrat.

Elissa Slotkin’s victory in 2018 to become the member of Congress of Michigan’s 8th District was probably the poster child for the ascendancy of Democratic voters after the election of Donald Trump. She defeated the Chief Pocket Lint Wrangler for billionaire Matty Moroun, Republican Mike Bishop, in a quite red district Bishop should easily have won. It took time, but […]
