For those longing for a continuation of the supposed Struggle for the Soul of the Democratic Party between 2016 supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the final meeting of the Democratic Unity Reform Commission may have been a disappointment.

For the better part of his esteemed career, Alex Kozinski, one of the top appellate judges in the nation, has been his own public-relations machine, fielding press inquiries and interviews with journalists, unlike any of his peers in the federal judiciary, who never talk to the press.

Assuming it never plunges the planet into a nuclear winter, Donald Trump’s incompetence will be one of his presidency’s saving graces. The demagogue-in-chief has exposed the fragility of America’s democratic institutions, and the openness of (many of) its people to authoritarian rule. But he’s proven far too lazy...More »]]>Eric Levitzregulationsepaconsumer financial protection bureaupresident trump<![CDATA[Report Suggests Trump Told Flynn to Lie to the FBI]]>, 11 Dec 2017 15:48:16 GMT

A suspect is in custody after a pipe bomb attached to him exploded — likely prematurely — in an underground tunnel near New York’s Port Authority.

The suspect, identified as 27-year old Bangladesh native and Brooklyn resident Akayed Ullah, was in serious condition at Bellevue Hospital.

In late November North Korea conducted a ballistic missile test that appeared to show for the first time that it’s capable of striking anywhere on the U.S. mainland.

On Sunday afternoon, a Newark, New Jersey, politician found himself some 950 miles away from home in Birmingham, Alabama, in service to others and, it sure sounded, to his own presidential ambitions.
