Democrats Would Regret Nuking the Filibuster
There’s nothing that ails Joe Biden’s agenda, we are supposed to believe, that ending the filibuster wouldn’t fix. President Joe Biden showed a little leg on changing the filibuster in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News the other night, while almost every Senate Democrat wants to ditch it. Even Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who still supports the filibuster, said a couple of weeks ago that resorting to it should be more “painf ...

Why So Many Politicians Are Such A--holes
Politicians have devoted their professional lives to the art of public persuasion. Reputation is everything. Success hinges on getting as many people as possible to view their ideas and their life stories as sympathetically as possible. Sounds simple enough. But here is a puzzle: Why are so many people in the business of being likable actually so unlikable? Not unlikable merely in the awkward, eye-rolling, prefer-not-to-spend-much-time-wi ...

Could Putin Launch Another Invasion?
A trained KGB agent, Vladimir Putin knows how to hide his feelings, but in 2013, after former President Barack Obama described him looking like “the bored kid in the back of the classroom,” Putin let it be known that he was furious. And rightly so: kids in the back of the room are rarely ambitious. Putin, from day one of his rule 21 years ago, has had big, ambitious plans for himself and for Russia. A far greater Soviet patriot than a Russian ...

Georgia Republicans make unexpected push on another bill to restrict voting
(CNN)A key committee in the Republican-controlled Georgia legislature on Wednesday made a surprise move and began work on a massive new voting bill that would give the state broad powers over local election officials, set limits on weekend early voting and add voter ID requirements for absentee ballots.

Intelligence report contradicts claims by Trump and his team on China election interference
Washington (CNN)The US intelligence report released Tuesday detailing foreign election interference in the 2020 election contradicts repeated statements from former President Donald Trump and senior members of his administration that China -- and not Russia -- was the top foreign threat to the integrity of the election.

Fact check: Biden wrong on three statistics he cited in ABC interview
Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden sat for an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday. Biden was generally factual in the interview, much of which aired on Wednesday. But he was wrong on three statistical claims. The context around two of these inaccurate claims suggests they may have been slips rather than purposeful lies. And on the third claim, regarding the history of the Senate filibuster, Biden explicitly told Stephan ...

White supremacy and hate are haunting Asian Americans
(CNN)In one sense, it's immaterial whether the accused killer in the Atlanta spa shootings admits to a racist motivation. Asian Americans, already traumatized by a rising tide of hate, violence and rhetoric, have been living in fear for months. The murders of eight people, including six Asian women, among them four South Koreans, further disoriented and horrified a community already unfairly stigmatized by racial association during a pandemic ...

Biden on US meeting looming Afghanistan withdrawal deadline: 'Could happen, but it is tough'
Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden said he is still making a decision on withdrawing all US troops from Afghanistan ahead of a May 1 deadline set by former President Donald Trump, saying it "could happen, but it is tough." "I'm in the process of making that decision now as to when they'll leave. The fact is, that was not a very solidly negotiated deal that the President, the former President, worked out. So we're in consultation with our alli ...

Fact-checking GOP claims that people on terror watch list are 'rushing' the border
(CNN)Amid a significant increase in the number of migrants showing up at the US southern border, a group of Republican lawmakers spoke on Monday in El Paso, Texas, to criticize the Biden administration's immigration policy. Among the more notable claims made were comments from GOP House leader Kevin McCarthy, who said that people on the terror watch list were now attempting to enter the US through the southern border.

Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden said Vladimir Putin "will pay a price" for his efforts to undermine the 2020 US election following a landmark American intelligence assessment which found that the Russian government meddled in the 2020 election with the aim of "denigrating" Biden's candidacy.

House to vote on joint resolution to remove ERA deadline
(CNN)The House is pushing forward with a joint resolution to remove a deadline for states to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, after a recent federal court ruling said the deadline for the ERA expired long ago. Proponents of the ERA believe the court ruling signaled that it's now up to Congress to validate their argument that the ERA has already been ratified and should be published as the Constitution's 28th Amendment. But opponents say Cong ...

St. Petersburg, Florida (CNN)After a year of criticism by health experts, mockery from comedians and blistering critiques from political rivals, Florida Gov.

GOP using political gaslighting to attack democracy
In Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” Antony declared Brutus’ stabbing of Caesar the “most unkindest cut of all” because Brutus had been a trusted friend and one-time supporter of Caesar. Political gaslighting is one of the most unkindest cuts of all because most of the victims of its insidious lies and misrepresentations are constituents who trust and support those gaslighting politicians. Interpersonal gaslighting differs from political gasli ...
