Who’s Having Success Against Daesh/ISIS? Obama, of Course

You know, to hear Republicans and many in the media tell it, one would think President Obama was just ignoring Daesh/ISIL and letting them get away with a lot of crap with impunity. In fact, given the media’s obsession with Donald Trump and the Zika virus, to the detriment of

Eric Holder Helps Save the Constitution

It’s not possible to overstate the importance of a move Attorney General Eric Holder made Friday when it comes to restoring at least a semblance of the constitutional republic we all dreamed of before we became so preoccupied by the “Drug War.” It’s funny; we think we’re so much smarter
