The media was wrong, and the White House was right. Still, many of us in the media won't admit it. Therefore, I'd like to apologize to you. We should probably make a better effort to understand policy, before we attempt to comment on it. And we should probably also admit, once and for all, that the President was born in America.
Why did the grand jury take it upon themselves to sort out the witness conclusively? The point of a grand jury is only to determine if probable cause of a crime, a very low legal hurdle, exists. If it does, they return an indictment and the case goes to trial for resolution.
The president's plan steers us in the right direction, but it is up to Congress to permanently fix our broken immigration system. Let's put pressure on the people who are supposed to represent our best interests.
John Whitbeck remembers when being a Republican in California was "cool." A nostalgic voice seeds through the political junkie's recollections of the GOP back in the day.

November 20 was the 25th anniversary of the adoption by the U.N. General Assembly of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It may come as a shock to many Americans to learn that the three rogue nations in the world that have refused to ratify this no-brainer convention are Somalia, South Sudan and the United States.
When America, a country that globally champions the ideals of democracy and freedom, starts to develop political apathy of this magnitude, it compromises its ability to inspire other countries on the world stage, or to attract foreign business investment to its shores.
On March 22, 1991, a visibly shaken and angered President George H.W. Bush said he was "sickened and outraged" by what he saw on television. That was the beating of black motorist Rodney King by a swarm of LAPD cops.
Our global climate is warming due to the unprecedented amounts of carbon dioxide we are emitting through the combustion of fossil fuels.
We are living in The Neocon Moment, a testament to the foolishness and arrogance of those who believe themselves to be engineers of peoples, societies, and nations. Yet Washington officials have yet to tire of America's permanent state of war.
Republican Dan Sullivan will be Alaska's newest U.S. senator, but outgoing Sen. Mark Begich said he'll work in Washington until the last minute to push through legislation that will benefit Alaska.
