What aren’t we being told about GenX?

What could possibly be more important than knowing that the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink is safe? Public safety is one of the major functions of government.

That said, the GenX issue is a great mystery. For too many months there…

Fourteen months ago, in the first flush of power, Steve Bannon gave an interview to Michael Wolff – beginning a relationship that would prove his undoing – in which he boasted about his plan to realign our politics. His nationalist-populist movement, he argued, would transform…

President Trump’s intent could not be more explicit: He wants immigration policies that admit white people and shut the door to black and brown people. That is pure racism – and the Republican Party, which traces its heritage to Abraham Lincoln, must decide whether to go along.…
