Most of us grew up knowing that time zones weren’t a “thing” until the railroads were built and it became somewhat important to know what time – relative to the other stupid town’s time – a train might show up. And we all at some point learned that the country went to daylight savings time during World War II as a means to save electricity. After the war, people decided they liked daylight savings time, especially during the summer, and here we are.
Despite being a freshman congressperson from a small district in Colorado, Lauren Boebert has fast become a name in politics. Most of the coverage of her, however, is not favorable.
She tweeted out the location of Nancy Pelosi during the January 6th insurrection when Trump supporters were looking to harm the Speaker. She has made a big stink about metal detectors being placed outside the Capitol complex. And she’s even dabbled in conspiracy theories like QAnon.
When Joe Biden won the White House this November, Democrats thought they wouldn’t have to deal with Donald Trump for number of years. That might not be true, though.
If Trump wanted to, he could easily win a Republican house seat in the state of Florida. And if Republicans won back the House at the same time, Trump could be elected into a leadership position, potentially even Speaker of the House.
It has been a wild day for Florida Representative Matt Gaetz. Earlier in they day, many were surprised by rumors that the Trump sycophant could be leaving his post to go serve as a political commentator on Newsmax.
This year saw both Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene were elected to congress. Prior to that, Republican voters had elected people like Louie Gohmert, Paul Gosar and Marsha Blackburn to office.
When a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol building on January 6th, no one was necessarily safe. While the insurrections were nominally Republicans, many of them hoped to inflict damage on Conservatives like Vice President Mike Pence.
The Senate is about to use a trick called “reconciliation” to pass Joe Biden’s Covid relief bill. Many Democrats want to go further and use this arcane rule to pass all kinds of policies that would never otherwise make it through – a rise in the minimum wage, climate policies, infrastructure, etc. But Tori Gorman, a budget expert at the Concord Coalition, says that might be a big mistake.
Lin Wood has long been involved in high profile legal cases. He represented Richard Jewell in his defamation case and was also the lawyer for the parents of Jon Benet Ramsey.
He entered the MAGA world this summer when he volunteered to defend teen shooter Kyle Rittenhouse. And Wood has certainly gotten involved in the 2020 election, especially in the state of Georgia.
There were many Democrats in the House of Representatives that helped propel Joe Biden to victory. And it is tradition for some of these congresspeople to be rewarded with prominent cabinet seats.
Cedric Richmond (D-LA) was important surrogate and adviser for the Biden campaign. The president-elect has now tapped him to be the director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.
Citing words from an influential businessman, Trump suggested on Sunday afternoon that the poor response to coronavirus in the United States wasn’t his administration’s fault, but that of Congress’.

Speaker of the House Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) is pushing hard to get another misguided and harmful tax cut passed in the next few months. For some reason he thinks this will fire up the Republican base of voters and will make it more likely that Republican candidates will win elections this year.
The economy is soaring, and so is public optimism about the economy.
You would think this should result in President Trump having high approval ratings, but that is not the case. Trump’s approval rating based on the average of public opinion polls is stuck at around 41%. This is an historically low number.
The Washington Post has reported that Congressional Republicans are now suggesting they want to pass a balanced budget amendment. Which is completely ridiculous since the tax bill they passed into law in December has added more than $1 trillion to the U.S. deficit.
‘The Heat is On’ is a Glenn Frey song made famous by the 1980’s TV show ‘Miami Vice.’ Given all the news about how Facebook data was improperly used to manipulate hundreds of millions of people in elections, the song’s title is an apt description of the environment that the social media giant is currently facing.
A new NBC poll released Thursday morning should be a wakeup call to the NRA and its supporters in Washington, including President Trump. Most people think that putting more guns in schools is a really bad idea.
The so called Nunes Memo, bombed by any measure. On a political level it was a disaster. Even conspiracy theory fans like Trey Gowdy called it a failure in it's main objective of discrediting the Mueller investigation.
"The fact that the Republicans have put the entire Republican Party brand on the line to smear and assassinate the character of the entire FBI ... is political suicide."
