Birth control is life-saving, life-affirming health care for women. There is nothing "pro-life" about restricting birth control, and religion is no excuse for this dangerous and ugly form of discrimination.
Bill sponsor U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and supporter U.S. Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND) both stood on the Senate floor and said Keystone XL is not an export pipeline in the minutes leading up to the bill's failure.
Two years later, pending on my DACA renewal, I am no longer obsessively checking the status of my second USCIS application. Rather, I spend time thinking about what will happen to my parents.

What does this mean for Canada? First and foremost, it means a reinvigorated green crusade for renewables, which can only harm Canada's economy, as we showed when Ontario took this path. In addition, the green movement will likely use this agreement to push for other harmful policies such as a national carbon tax. The U.S.-China agreement will also reinvigorate green opposition to Canadian fossil-fuel production of all sorts: the no coal, no gas, and especially the no oil sands people will be using the new announcement as a cudgel with which to demonize anyone who opposes them.
With the President's recent return from his diplomatic trip in Asia, and the year about to end, Barack Obama is getting ready to sign what many call "one of his biggest political decisions of his presidency."
The risk of ISIS getting a nuclear bomb are small. But they are not zero.

A mistake that seems destined to be part of the 2016 Republican autopsy.
As Washington leaders charge headlong into a clash over President Obama's plan to issue executive orders on immigration, can we take a minute and talk about what executive orders are?
As the president continues to determine what shape any final executive action will take, the local impact of his decision should be front and center. To that end, I believe our country must finally do away with Secure Communities, a deeply flawed immigration enforcement program.
President Barack Obama finally is obeying the law. He wants Congress to authorize military action against the Islamic State. That's what the Constitution requires.
Christopher Nolan's first film since the massive success of his Dark Knight Trilogy is a big movie about the future with with big ambitions, big themes, big images, and big questions about human nature, time, and president-day attitudes and policies. Or lack of same.
Midterm elections are not intended to neuter a president. They are midcourse corrections intended to make government work better for the people who elect their representatives; to -- in fact -- transform the government we have into the government the people wish they have.
We've waited this long, I think we can afford to wait another couple of weeks. It might not change anything -- it might not influence congressional Republicans in the slightest -- but there is a chance that it could. That chance is worth taking.
