Biden could curb right-wing extremism with one weird trick: Ending the U.S. "forever war" Joe Biden could show a seriousness to finally ending these wars and creating an American foreign policy that doesn't need to be enforced with constant drone strikes and an archipelago of military bases.

A Notable Death in 2020: American Democracy Something has clearly gone off the rails when at least 18 people with enough smarts to get elected attorney general of an American state sign onto a lawsuit that managed to be frivolous yet also argued to end democracy as we've known it these last 233 years or so.

Absolute pardon power for a corrupt narcissist like Trump was a giant goof. How can we fix it? President Trump reportedly is planning to issue preemptive pardons to his three oldest children Ivanka, Don Jr., and Eric as well as son-in-law Jared Kushner, lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and anyone else who might be covered by the Friends and Family Plan.

America Wakes Up to a Near Worst-Case Scenario For months, the 2020 election has been spun and rightfully so as more than a choice between two candidates, but as a battle for the soul of America.

Will Dems' Embrace of Mail, Masks, and Social Distance Help Trump Win the Election? Democrats need to hold democracy -- and the unique risks that 2020 now poses -- with the same regard as white-coated doctors. Having a plan to vote and make it count is the healthiest thing Americans can do right now.

Why do police unions talk and act like the Mafia? How can we stop them? The difference between the FOP and the UAW is that an auto worker can't commit state-sanctioned violence. The need to protect everyday citizens from the too-often violent abuse of authority is paramount.

Brett Kavanaugh farce is proof that justice is dead in America How is it possible that the impeachment of a Supreme Court justice is unthinkable, but a 40-year-run for a man who may have lied under oath to get there, and to hide his past mistreatment of women, is thought to be no big deal?

The Constitution's 3 Ways to Stop a Demagogue Like Trump Haven't Worked. Now What? The question of how to handle an unfit president has taken on a powerful new urgency, as President Trump has unraveled right in front of us. The public meltdowns are getting worse and worse by that day. And that's only what we see.

Can Democrats grow a spine before American democracy collapses in a limp, lifeless heap? Bullied by McConnell, the Trumpists, and their allies to pass a harsh Senate bill before the July 4 break or be called a bunch of bad names, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her moderate clique of House Democratic leaders caved faster than the epicenter of a Southern California earthquake.

Mitch McConnell's democracy-crushing smirk is why just getting rid of Trump isn't enough Mitch McConnell's amoral political cynicism has been barely concealed (if at all) ever since the dawn of the Obama presidency, when he declared the goal of what was once known, years ago, as "the world's greatest deliberative body" was no longer to pass laws but to deny Obama a second term.

Climate denier Trump can't handle the truth about why Central Americans flock to U.S. President Trump doesn't understand a lot of things, even as he enters his 28th month in charge of the massive bureaucratic battleship that is the U.S. government. But no issue has flummoxed our rage-prone 45th president more than the rise in unauthorized crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border -- even after promising his xenophobic base that his harsh immigration crackdown would make America great again.

Stop blaming millennials for not voting. Blame America's screwed-up system -- and fix it! yell at Demos, and then yell 100 times louder at the Republican apparatchiks like Georgia's Brian Kemp or Kansas' Kris Kobach who've tried to build their careers by standing in front of the polling place door. But don't yell at millennials, who are tomorrow's enthusiastic voters. Unless we grown-ups keep screwing things up.

With lie-filled "nationalist" war on caravan, transgender people, Trump moves U.S. toward tyranny To hold his right-wing base together and drive them to the polls, Trump's weaponry includes such diverse elements as ... fear. Actually, that's pretty much the only element he's got -- fear -- and so he is turning up the volume to deafening levels.

She Warned America That Russia Hacked Our Voting Rolls. Why Is She In Jail? If America wants to emerge from the current quagmire, we need a system that will encourage responsible truth-tellers, not deprive them of their liberty. Those things aren't going to happen with a president who's at war with the First Amendment or a Congress brainwashed to do his bidding.

It's time for a general strike, because Trump treason demands a brave response The American people are going to have to kick things up a notch, in a hurry. It's time to begin the planning for a general strike -- perhaps right after Labor Day, when school is back in session and vacation season is over -- that would show our ability to shut down the American economy while this unfit and arguably treasonous president insists on clinging to power.

"Did Climate Change Kill ... People in Ellicott City?" Halting fracking in Pennsylvania is seen as a radical idea, and politically impossible. This despite that fact that the states immediately to our north and south -- New York and Maryland -- have managed to do exactly that. Maybe it's time for Pennsylvania to stop focusing so much on whether we can afford to stop drilling, and start asking how many more events like Ellicott City will it take to begin understanding reality.

How the chaos of 1968 set the stage for a President Donald Trump The so-called coded "dog whistles" on welfare fraud or crime that Republicans had used to make racial appeals in the 1980s became a bullhorn in the tiny hands of The Donald, who screamed about Mexican rapists and "The Wall" and won primary after primary.

How the Trump family sold U.S. foreign policy to the highest bidder Trump's dealings with the Saudis and UAE is the puzzle piece that finally brings the big picture into focus. What is beginning to take shape is the outlines of a scandal that threatens to be worse than Watergate on a massive scale, that would make Richard Nixon's crimes truly seem like "a third-rate burglary" in comparison.

Michael Cohen and Donald Trump take American graft to the Bada Bing club Pay-to-pay politics is nothing new in America, and in fact our lawmakers and judges have worked hard to ensure that much of it is legal. Still, there's something especially crass and unseemly about the way Team Trump does it. Big cash payments to an unskilled and sometimes thuggish "fixer" so close to the president himself. Welcome to the Bada Bing's new location on K Street.
