An Umpteenth Executive Order: Trump's New Presidential Commission on Election Integrity My take on the president's executive order yesterday establishing a Presidential Commission on Election Integrity, an "alt" project if there ever was one.

The People's Climate Change March in Our Nation's Capitol The People's Climate Change March brought out more than 100,000 protesters from all over the country to brave the blazing 90 degree heat. I have never seen DC's Metro so crowded in my life, not even during the Cherry Blossom Festival, which tanked in tune with the arrival of the new regime, I mean administration.

Disingenuousness from an Ambiguous Publication in a Liberal University Town An alternate fact published by Austin, Texas's leading newspaper, of ambiguous partisan affiliation in the state's largest, most liberal city.

In Memoriam: The Election Assistance Commission (with a P.S.) The Election Assistance Commission, established by the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) to help the people vote, has been effectively abolished by a House committee dominated by the GOP.
