In The News
Congressional Democrats have introduced legislation aimed at preventing Donald Trump from launching a pre-emptive attack on North Korea, as concerns grew about the administration’s failure to explore talks with Pyongyang.
In January, Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Rep. Ted Lieu of California -- both Democrats -- introduced legislation that would prohibit the president of the United States from conducting a “first-use nuclear strike," unless such an attack had been authorized by a prior declaration of war by Congress.
Donald Trump ran for president on a promise to “drain the swamp.” I agreed with that particular statement. Unfortunately, he didn’t mean what he said. The recent actions of Trump and several White House officials prove this administration hasn’t drained the swamp — it has become the swamp.
But that doesn’t mean Congress can’t drain the swamp ourselves.
Nuclear anxiety is on the rise.
Democrats in Congress say it would be “illegal” and “catastrophic” if President Donald Trump were to conduct a preemptive nuclear strike on North Korea, and they’re calling on Republicans to be far more vocal on this issue.
Up in the hills between the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles, the intersection of iconic Mulholland Drive and Laurel Canyon Boulevard evokes thoughts of historic Hollywood glamour and the ’60s rock and drugs scene.
These days it’s also a point of interest to political junkies: It’s the spot where Adam Schiff’s, Brad Sherman’s and Ted Lieu’s congressional districts meet.
On September 18, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) published a notice in the Federal Register redefining the scope of records (so-called “A-Files”) the agency keeps on immigrants, aliens, and naturalized citizens to include social media information and other public-facing data.
The powers of the imperial presidency have been building long before Trump took office.
Don’t say that we weren’t warned.
U.S. veterans are speaking out and criticizing Donald Trump following the televised spectacle Wednesday night when he failed to stand or honor the American flag as a bugler played, signaling the “Retreat” ceremony at a Pennsylvania military base.
