Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) wife, Jane Sanders, is launching a think tank aimed at helping “progressive leaders” connect with more people. “The purpose is to revitalize democracy in support of progressive institutions,” Jane Sanders said of the Sanders Institute in a Wednesday interview with The Washington Post. “A vital democracy requires an informed electorate, civil discourse, and bold thinking. Hopefully, it’s going to increase the number of progressive voices in the mainstream media.” Consider this a heads up. I will add the website in the comment section. … Continue reading →

Seattle — The ascent of Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court has changed the Senate. No longer will a minority of its members be able to block the confirmation of nominees to the nation’s highest court. And his appointment has changed the presidency, which now benefits from an easier confirmation process. But what about the Supreme Court itself? Is Judge Gorsuch’s appointment likely to change the body he is joining?
In the short term, yes, but not a whole lot. And in 2017 this is cause for relief. As the government reels from increasingly divisive partisanship, the federal judiciary has continued for the most part to serve as a rational, collegial and predictable branch of government. But over the long term, the realignment of checks and balances that accompanied Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation may mean that the Supreme Court will become more polarized and less stable.

Just post your opinions.) I had to get it off of my chest! Turf me if you … Continue reading →
