Trump CPAC Speech Energized By Revenge List of Pro-Impeachment Republicans

Trump CPAC Speech Energized By Revenge List of Pro-Impeachment Republicans

He was very old and in the way, until he got to the hit list. The hit list energized him. It turned on all his lights. It was the pure, uncut evil juju that had been missing from his life for months and, generous demon from the depths of hell that he is, he shared it with all the minions gathered at CPAC in Florida, and it made all their lights shine.He dropped little jujubes of it amid the torrent of exhausted bigotry that seemed to bore even himself. There was a long stretch of threadbare immigrant-bashing during which he looked like a tired cabaret performer flogging his way through his...

Development Depends on More Than Aid

Development Depends on More Than Aid

In the quarter century preceding the global COVID-19 pandemic, the world achieved something astonishing: worldwide poverty fell by Foreign aid played an important role in ameliorating the conditions of life for millions of people—helping to slash child mortality by between 1990 and 2019, for example, and providing with lifesaving HIV medications in 2020.But even the most enthusiastic champions of such progress had to concede that inclusive and sustainable development remained elusive.

NASA Needs to Rename the James Webb Space Telescope

NASA Needs to Rename the James Webb Space Telescope

Because of its ability to see more deeply into spacetime than any instrument before it, the Hubble Space Telescope has completely transformed the way we see the universe and ourselves. The (JWST), often dubbed “the next Hubble,” promises to do the same. Slated to launch later this year, JWST will peer more deeply into the universe than any optical or infrared telescope before it, promising to show us a vision of galaxies in their infancy and probe potentially habitable worlds. Such data not only provide insight into the universe but also help us humans situate our concerns in context. It is...

Why are no Republicans condemning Rep. Paul Gosar for cozying up to white nationalists?

Arizona Republic Arizona’s most shocking story today isn’t the fact that an Arizona congressman spoke at a white nationalist conference on Friday night.It isn’t that he then posed for pictures with the event organizer, a guy who lamented the loss of the country’s “white demographic core” and proclaimed the events leading up to the Jan. 6 riot at the nation’s Capitol as “awesome.”It’s the silence pouring forth from the Arizona Republican Party that is absolutely stunning.Gosar has long been known for living out there on what used to be the party’s fringe. Used to be.He’s the congressman who...

When Minimum Wage to $15 Was Disallowed by Senate Parliamentarian Democrats Attempted a Crazy Alternative

When Minimum Wage to $15 Was Disallowed by Senate Parliamentarian Democrats Attempted a Crazy Alternative

This story has flown under the radar over the weekend while conservative and GOP attention was focused on the events at CPAC in Orlando — Senate Democrats spent the weekend trying to figure out a way to punish US corporations who refuse to pay their workers a minimum wage of $15 an hour — even though such wage is not required by law.Late last week, the Senate Parliamentarian that the hike in the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, passed by the House in its COVID relief bill, is not legislation that can proceed through the Senate as part of the “Budget Reconciliation” process with the...

Author: Regressive Left Brands as 'Hate Speech' Any Speech They Hate

Freedom of expression advocate Andrew Doyle has criticised the “regressive” left for branding any speech they don’t like as “hate speech”, also warning that in light of police forces being found to have recorded some 120,000 ‘non-crime hate incidents’, that as history teaches us, “once the police start making lists of people for non-criminal activity, we are in serious danger”.“Without freedom of speech, we don’t have any other liberties at all. I fear that people have lost sight of that,” the comedian behind the perennially offended Social Justice Warrior character remarked on Monday., a...

Trump Vows to Terrorize America for At Least Another Four Years

Trump Vows to Terrorize America for At Least Another Four Years

If Donald Trump had any capacity for shame, the day he left the White House in January would have been the last time anyone heard from him for months if not years. In addition to causing his party to lose control of both the presidency and the Senate in 2020 and the House in 2018, Trump, you may recall, incited a violent insurrection that left five people dead because he was upset about the results of the 2020 election, and fellow one-term presidents like George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter have gone into political exile for far less. But Trump, of course, has no shame. Or integrity. Or...

Are Liberals Really More Egalitarian?

Are Liberals Really More Egalitarian?

Verified byOn measures, liberals are more  than conservatives. This preference for equality is often measured with the  Scale, which contains items about both equality of treatment (e.., “We would have fewer problems if we treated people more equally”) and equality of outcomes (e.g., “We should strive to make incomes as equal as possible”).However, sometimes personality scales do not map onto behavior in expected ways. For example, despite the fact that conservatives score higher in, they appear to be  than liberals (i.e., no more likely to evaluate politically congenial information more...

The Border Patrol released 350 migrants onto the streets of a small Arizona border city over the past two weeks, according to a city official, who anticipates that thousands more people could be released by early spring.The releases on the Arizona-California border with Mexico add to similar instances in South Texas and signify a worsening situation, in which the Biden administration's rescinding of Trump-era policies means tens of thousands of migrants crossing monthly across the 2,000-mile border will be waved into the interior of the United States.Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls told the...
