Dangerous Devin Nunes: Crimebusting conspiracy theorist

Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, of California, seems to believe he's this generation's J. Edgar Hoover, the near-mythic crimebuster and first and longest-serving director of the FBI. Nunes has set his sights on this highly-regarded law enforcement organization, as well as its second-longest serving director, well-respected Special Counsel Robert Mueller, also a Republican.

Schumer, Pelosi back surrender on DACA - for now

After saber-rattling for weeks that they would shut down the federal government unless the 790,000 "dreamers" under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACAs) program were granted amnesty, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi quietly withdrew their threat.

Censorship at the CDC and beyond

The words we choose are always important - especially when it comes to crafting government policy. That simple fact makes an incident last week at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia worth paying attention to.

Five great things a weird 2017 produced

Give thanks and say hallelujah. Our very weird year is just about in the rearview mirror. Only a handful of days remain before we hit ctrtl-alt-del on the calendar, pop the corks and hope that the New Year is substantially better than the one we just had.

A Democratic pulse

Let's send a big fat congratulatory shout out to former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones for capturing the Senate seat in Alabama, the first Democrat to be elected to that Yellowhammer State position since Richard Shelby won a second term in 1992, but then switched allegiances to the Republican Party two years later. Which, to be perfectly honest, is cheating.

Christmas traditions are the best, eh

It's the Monday before Christmas, and my daughter, her hair tied up snugly in a bun, plops herself down in the front seat of my car. And as I aim my trusty German import in the direction of her ballet school, she turns to me, her face aglow in the gray afternoon light, a plea in her eyes.

Deregulation no breath of fresh air

As war continues to be waged over tax reform and the Affordable Care Act, a more subversive battle to eliminate consumer and environmental protections continues to rage. With the stroke of a pen, the president has swatted away bothersome regulations at the behest of corporate interest groups as though they were so many annoying flies.
