There was a time in my childhood when America was led by the likes of Eisenhower and John Kennedy. When the world had statesmen like De Gaulle and Olaf Palme; Nehru and Nkrumah. Leaders like Chancellor Schmidt and President Sukarno spoke words that got etched in our minds. They were the gods of the post-Second […]

They can't help themselves. At 29, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated Republican economics professor Anthony Pappas by a landslide in Queens and the Bronx in the 2018 midterms, is the youngest woman ever elected to the House of Representatives. Ocasio-Cortez has her critics, some of whom have trying to use her financial status to disparage her—and the native New Yorker hasn’t been shy about responding to them.One of the silly memes about Ocasio-Cortez is that she dresses too nicely for a “socialist” who addresses class inequality. On Twitter, reporter Eddie Scarry posted, “That jacket and coat don’t look like a girl who struggles.”But in a November 20 tweet, Ocasio-Cortez described some of her struggles in life, posting“My dad died when I was 18, my mom scrubbed toilets + drove school buses, I bartended to help her, and still won a Congressional primary at 28. I’ll take my family over a fat bank account any day, and my experience makes me a bet...

Judge Mark Goldsmith of the Eastern District of Michigan sharply criticized the government for dragging its feet in following court orders and making untrue statements about Iraqi willingness to repatriate its citizens deported from the United States. "The government has acted ignobly in this case, by failing to comply with court orders, submitting demonstrably false declarations of Government officials, and otherwise violating its litigation obligations," Goldsmith wrote.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz agreed with a federal judge’s ruling blocking President Trump’s order requiring asylum seekers to enter the US legally through a port of entry. Dershowitz stated, “I think he has the better of the argument, the judge does, on the statutory interpretation. There’s nothing in the statute that suggests that the president has the authority to overrule Congress. … The president’s authority is not a constitutional authority. It’s limited by statute. If the statute permits asylum seekers to seek asylum, even if they come in illegally, that statutory rule has to prevail. If the president doesn’t like that rule, he should go to Congress and have Congress change it.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued that private email use shouldn’t be criminalized, whether the email use was done by Hillary Clinton or Ivanka Trump and criticized the “hypocrisy on parade.” Dershowitz said, “I think it’s hypocrisy on parade. Each side uses whatever arguments they can to help and bolster their partisan position. Look, everybody uses private emails. We now have a list of probably a dozen people in public life who have used emails. Apparently, Ivanka Trump used the emails only for scheduling purposes. There was no classified material. The emails are all preserved. It’s a non-issue. It’s just partisan bickering. We should not be criminalizing the use of private emails, whether by Hillary Clinton or by Ivanka Trump.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Trump's reaction could inspire more attacks on the free press. President Donald Trump is continuing to back the Saudi regime, despite overwhelming evidence that its most powerful leader, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, is directly implicated in the assassination of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.In a farcical statement about the killing — strewn with superfluous exclamation points — the president lashed out at Iran and repeated bogus Saudi talking points about Khashoggi being an "enemy of the state" and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood."Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!" the statement said. On the contrary, reports suggest that the CIA is convinced that the crown prince ordered the killing himself. David Laufman, a former top counterintelligence official in the Justice Department, condemned Trump's cowardly...

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday it was "shameful" that U.S. President Donald Trump had pledged support for Saudi Arabia despite the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in its consulate. Trump had issued a statement that began: "The world is a very dangerous place! "The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more." Trump went on to vow to stay a "steadfast partner" of Riyadh despite saying that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may have known about the plan to murder Khashoggi in Istanbul.

Beto was no fluke: Democrats ousted two GOP congressmen and picked up 14 seats in the Texas legislature Republicans in Texas are concerned that the previously reliably red state may become a swing state by the 2020 elections. While Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke fell just short in his campaign against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, he came close enough that he now looks like a plausible presidential candidate. More important still, changing demographics caused Republicans to lose more than a dozen federal, state and local seats in Texas in this month's midterm elections.Republicans lost 12 seats in the state House and two in the state Senate in the midterms, primarily in areas around Dallas and Houston.  Voters in Houston’s Harris County also booted a Republican county executive.

"In sum, Trump’s economic promises to his rural base haven’t been kept." After running on a transparently false and manipulative message of representing the forgotten and downtrodden parts of the United States, President Donald Trump has led his administration like a typical Republican — completely uninterested in the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable Americans.In the view of conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin, this vast betrayal is a major risk for the Trump presidency."In sum, Trump’s economic promises to his rural base haven’t been kept," she wrote. "His policies either ignored rural voters or made their finances worse. They’ve stuck with him more or less during a time of overall prosperity, but for them as well as for other Americans still struggling to regain their economic footing from the financial crash in 2008, an economic downturn between now and the 2020 election might send Trump’s approval rating and reelection prospects spiraling dow...
