Joe Biden and Henry Hyde
Of course he was for the Hyde Amendment, the federal law that blocks Medicaid funding from being used for abortion. He even fought against a rape and incest exception. He proposed his own Biden amendment to block foreign aid from being used for biomedical research related to abortion. He was one of two Democrats who supported an effort to allow states to block Roe v. Wade.

The wilding of Lindda Fairstein
The African folktale version of the 1989 Central Park gang-rape has swept the populace! The mob thirsts for vengeance against evil spirits, like Linda Fairstein.

Tweets, Stock Prices and Donald Trump
President Donald Trump's tweets often set off big gyrations in stock prices. Anyone who knows of the tweets in advance could make a fortune, though not legally.

Democrats' Trump dilemma: Impeach, Imprison -- or bluff?
Is there any doubt that many Democrats agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when she says she wants to see President Trump "in prison"? After the Mueller report, House Democrats seem to believe almost unanimously that the president is guilty of obstruction of justice. Their increasingly heated internal debate is whether to impeach Trump now or press for his incarceration after they defeat him next year.

Finding People to Fill Empty Spaces
A tiny French mountain village with a long name, L'Hospitalet-pres-l'Andorre, has lost half its population over three decades. Its name in English would be "The Hospital Near Andorra." (Andorra is a small principality shoehorned between France and Spain.)

Pritzker gambles on new direction for Illinois
Democratic Gov. J. B. Pritzker and the Legislature have gambled on a new direction for Illinois. The dramatic new course seeks to turn our state from a government mired in conflict, impasse and perennial deficits to that of big picture thinking, and big spending.

Don Fraser revamped our presidential nominating process
You probably missed it, because some of the major papers missed its significance, too: the death of former U.S. Rep. Don Fraser. In fact, you may never have heard of Fraser, who also served a record four terms as mayor of Minneapolis. But he shaped the politics of the last half-century of American life, with particular influence on the 2020 presidential election he will not live to see to its conclusion -- but which he witnessed in its messy, muddled and mindless start.

The whole folk tale and nothing but the folk tale
New York City public school teachers recently revealed that they have been instructed to reject "objectivity," "written documentation" and "perfectionism" by Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza, as part of his effort to "dismantle racism." Carranza identified these values as tools of the "white-supremacy culture."

Law enforcement, media have changed standards for Trump
One of the more unfortunate effects of the Trump-Russia investigation -- and there have been many -- is the weakening of traditional standards of argument and proof in the public debate over allegations that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election. (Just for the record: It didn't.)

The wayward special counsel
In the end, by-the-book Robert Mueller departed wildly from the book.
He invented an extraconstitutional legal standard for his obstruction investigation and acted, at best, in violation of the spirit of the special-counsel regulations.

Mayor Pete: Why not?
"Why not?" she asked.

We're looking for a nondescript generic white male Democrat, preferably a senator, and you ask why not the 37-year-old gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana

Could we survive as they did?
Lost for 17 days in a Hawaiian jungle, all alone in only a tank top and capri yoga pans, I'm not sure what I would do. Would I work past my fractured leg, blistered wounds and terror to survive? Would I eat mystery fruit and moths and sleep in the mud or a wild boar's den? Would I do the things Amanda Eller did, or would I go crazy after two weeks and throw my emaciated body into a ravine?

As barr mulls declassification, a familiar tune from critics
In February 2018, the House Intelligence Committee released the so-called Nunes memo. In four pages, the document, from the committee's then-chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, revealed much of what the public knows today about the FBI's reliance on the Steele dossier in pursuing since-discredited allegations that the Trump campaign and Russia conspired to fix the 2016 election. Specifically, it revealed that the FBI included unverified material from the dossier in applications to a secret spy court to win a warrant to wiretap Trump foreign policy volunteer adviser Carter Page.

A declining population need not cause angst
Total births in the United States fell last year to about 3.79 million, the smallest number in 32 years. The fertility rate hit a record low of 59 childbirths per 1,000 women. Americans are not having enough children to replace themselves.

You, too? CEOs under the 'Me Too' microscope
It's hard enough dealing with sexual misconduct by senior officials. But when the CEO is an alleged pig, much less one who is surrounded by like-minded figures, who do you complain to?

The worst cover-up of all time
President Donald Trump may be guilty of many things, but a cover-up in the Mueller probe isn't one of them.

As more Democrats get in, party's message should be: Get out
Mayor Bill de Blasio -- not particularly popular, not particularly pleasant, not particularly accomplished -- announced his presidential candidacy the other day. Nobody was excited, but then again nobody was surprised. After all, everybody else is running for president. Why shouldn't he?

US isn't becoming Europe. We're becoming Rome
Can we have a quick reality check and acknowledge that what is happening to America is a million times worse than what's happening in Europe and is of much greater consequence?

A cap on interest rates charged consumers? Yes
The Loan Shark Protection Act would limit the interest charged on credit cards to 15 percent. A 15 percent cap would be too low -- naively too low. Too bad the bill's sponsors, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, weren't more careful, because their clumsy approach hands ammo to foes of those reining in truly abusive forms of consumer credit, the most obscene example being the payday loan.
Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Mueller changed everything
From now on, the Trump-Russia affair -- the investigation that dominated the first years of Donald Trump's presidency -- will be divided into two parts: before and after the release of Robert Mueller's report. Before the special counsel's findings were made public last month, the president's adversaries were on the offensive. Now, they are playing defense.

The Supreme Court is not going to overrule Roe v. Wade
First of all, it doesn't need to. Roe v. Wade has already been thoroughly decimated by a thousand different regulations, all of which the Supreme Court has, or will, uphold.

Joe Biden and restoring the old (pre-Trump) order
There was a school of thought that said former Vice President Joe Biden would begin to sink in the polls the moment he announced his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden's first day in the race, the thinking went, would be his best day.

Give me a moment

These are real 'high crimes'
Contrary to the image of potheads as peaceful stoners, "cannabis-dependent psychotic patients were four times as likely to be violent," according to a study cited by Alex Berenson in his magnificent new book, "Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness and Violence." "No other factor was nearly as important. Alcohol use, which was common among the patients, made no difference."

Political family privilege: Let's end it
The Trump camp is making a very big deal out of Hunter Biden's 2014 gig with a Ukrainian oligarch. This was a time when his father, Joe Biden, Barack Obama's vice president, was pressing Ukraine's leaders to rein in its oligarchs. As it happened, Hunter's membership on the oligarch's board in no way weakened Joe Biden's -- or America's -- anti-corruption message to Ukraine.

The new abortion wars
In the not-so-old days, the guerrilla battle against Roe v. Wade took the form of state laws that imposed endless obstacles in the face of women seeking to exercise their constitutional rights, from waiting periods to hospitalization requirements to exhaustive credentialing of clinics, not to mention repeated efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

Trump's economy is strong. Obama's was better
"We're doing trade deals that are going to get you so much business you're not even going to believe it," President Trump told an American Farm Bureau Federation meeting in January. The attendees cheered.

Efforts are underway in some states to close loopholes in marital rape laws
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Witches were still being burned at the stake when Sir Matthew Hale came up with his legal theory that rape could not happen within marriage. The 17th century English jurist declared it legally impossible because wedding vows implied a wife’s ongoing consent to sex.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- From the Mississippi River in the east to the Missouri in the west, Iowa's soybean farmers are in the field right now, planting their next crop in some of the most fertile soil in the country. But those are not the only seeds being placed in the state's rich ground.

The Very Strange Case of Stephen Moore
What can you say about Stephen Moore? That his economic views tend toward the nutty, and his research is a slop job? That his juvenile fear of females borders on the pathetic -- and that he didn't find them too embarrassing to air? That he's Donald Trump's pick to serve on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors? Yes, but we repeat ourselves.

The Mueller Report 2.0
My friend Jack Corrigan, one of the smartest politicos/lawyers I know, saw it right away. He called it "the key punch-pulling passage in the report." It occurs on page two of volume two, where Robert Mueller says he and his team "determined not to apply an approach that could potentially result in a judgment that the President committed crimes."

Supreme and exalted Master President Robert Mueller
According to Robert Mueller, a president can be guilty of obstruction of justice simply by exercising the powers of the president -- if he does so with "an intent to obtain an improper advantage for himself or someone else, inconsistent with official duty and the rights of others."

The liberal media is not always the liberal's friend
So Joe Biden is in. He's not millennial, not female, not a member of a racial minority. That's a problem for him, sayeth much of the so-called liberal media. The problem, however, may be the media.

The personal cost of the Trump-Russia probe
Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is over, but the reverberations of the Trump-Russia affair live on. One such after-effect is the reluctance of some important figures in the 2016 campaign to speak out, for fear of continued legal entanglements.

Trees capture carbon and dollars
The last Friday in April is National Arbor Day. You knew that, didn't you? Born in the Victorian era, Arbor Day began mainly as a gentle reminder to admire trees as things of beauty. As an environmental observance, it has been upstaged by the more comprehensive Earth Day (itself now almost 50 years old). But Arbor Day has been very much updated.

The Republican Rollout of the Mueller Report
One of the comments that stuck with me after the release of the full Mueller report was that Attorney General Barr had not played it down the middle. Putting the conclusions out first (NO INDICTMENT) allowed the president to take a victory lap. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi started talking about health care, not impeachment. He gave the White House first dibs on redactions. He made Congress wait and then controlled what it received. In fact, since the first "dump," it has been dribbling the report out for so long that the Democrats are still fighting about redactions. (Let's see, there's jobs and health care and global warming and redactions ...) And troubling details, available only this week, feel like old news.

Hemingway and Castro in Cuba
SAN FRANCISCO DE PAULA, Cuba -- A bullfight poster hangs on the wall. Of course it does. Ten bottles of liquor are on the table. No surprise there. A Billie Holiday vinyl record rests near the Victrola. Just as it should. Loads of books sit on the shelves, animal heads are mounted on the walls. We'd be disappointed if that weren't the case.

Paris and New York are united by urban horror
Many of us watching the inferno at Notre Dame de Paris felt that 9/11 dread. This week, as nearly 18 years ago, the news channels kept looping the same horrific video of towers collapsing. At the end, the medieval cathedral remained mostly standing while the twin towers at New York's World Trade Center vanished into a pile of smoking rubble. The outcomes may have been different, but both calamities showed that what we think most permanent may not be.

Five arguments the Mueller report won't settle
Attorney General Bill Barr will release a redacted version of the Mueller report this week. It will, of course, consume the political conversation for days, but even now it is clear that as much as the report might be talked about, it will not settle the main arguments that have raged about the Trump-Russia affair for more than two years. Here are five debates that won't be resolved, no matter how much of the report Barr makes public:

One of the most fulfilling elements of membership in the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation Profiles of Courage board is examining the essays on political courage that high school students around the country and, increasingly, around the globe, prepare each year.

There was always something fishy about the #MeToo complaint against Joe Biden. Putting hands on Lucy Flores' shoulders and smooching the back of her head is in no way sexual. Even Flores admitted that.

Mueller sent sign after sign on collusion, yet some would not see
Many Trump opponents were shocked and disappointed by Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller's conclusion that "the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities." Some members of the "Resistance" and NeverTrump communities apparently had a deep emotional commitment to the idea of collusion.

From Hawaii to New Hampshire, candidates try to stand out
In the crowd this morning are more beards than on an NHL playoff team, more winter fleece than in a factory outlet, more hiking boots than in an Appalachian Mountain Club high-altitude hut. In this atmosphere -- a classic New Hampshire primary audience, not demure but demanding, not casual but committed -- suddenly a voice rings out:

Aloha, everybody.

The only people surprised that the special counsel's investigation of Russian collusion did not confirm a lunatic conspiracy theory are consumers of the modern American media.

Mueller report is what Democrats needed
Many Democrats don't get this, but the Mueller report has done them a great service. Concluding no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia but no exoneration on obstruction of justice hardly takes the president off the hook of possibly criminal behavior. But it does take impeachment off the table.

On Russia, Trump acted innocent
The release of Robert Mueller's finding that Donald Trump didn't collude with Russia should settle a question his critics -- and, quietly, some of his allies -- have asked repeatedly over the past two years: Why was he acting so guilty?

Mayor Pete will be president one of these years
What corner of political heaven did Pete Buttigieg fly down from? The 37-year-old Democratic mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has mightily impressed mainstream Democrats with his refreshing common-sense intelligence. And that's won him admiring glances from many Republicans, as well. Buttigieg's last name is pronounced like "boot-a-judge." You can skirt the issue by simply calling him Mayor Pete. And oh, it looks as if he's running for president.

Democrats look forward by looking inland
In Texas, most politicians used to worry only about the primaries. Once they won their party's endorsement, candidates would coast to victory in November. Journalists still refer to Texas as "ruby red," meaning Republicans rule the roost. That is no longer reality. Texas is barely red, and some argue it's already purple. For statewide office, general elections now matter greatly.
