Texas led the way, but expect more false claims of voter fraud from the White House and Republican-controlled states ahead of the 2020 election.
If anyone can make a bad situation worse, it’s Elliott Abrams. He’s now the US special envoy for Venezuela. What could possibly go wrong?
Stacey Abrams knows all about the impact that voter suppression and other anti-democracy measures can have on an election. We hope she uses the response to the State of the Union address to urge Americans to fight for democracy — while they still can.
How scared should the uber-rich be of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren? We are about to find out. OPINION
Opinion: Many GOP lawmakers recognize President Donald Trump is bad for the country, as exemplified by Sen. Mitt Romney’s (UT) recent Washington Post op-ed. But the chances of him or any of them diverging from the Trump agenda are slim to none.
Opinion: The walls may be closing in on President Donald Trump. But don’t count on his departing the White House willingly. Or “Teflon Don’s” die-hard supporters not putting up a fight.
Opinion: If you can’t win, cheat. And if you can’t win cheating, cheat more. That has been the motto of Republicans in various states following the midterm elections.
Opinion: Americans just witnessed the corrosive effects of voter suppression in the Georgia gubernatorial race. “Defeated” candidate Stacey Abrams, as well as election integrity activists nationwide, are trying to do something about it. So why can’t Big Media?

GOP-elected representatives from red states like North Carolina and Texas have been consistent in denying climate change and denying needed funds to other states hit by devastating hurricanes. But when the big storm comes to their door, their hypocrisy is revealed — and it may cost them dearly.
Voter suppression laws appear as wolves in sheeps’ clothing — cost-saving, preventing in-person voter fraud, securing elections. They’re never cast as what they really are — ugly manifestations of racism.
We think Rand Paul deserves his very own brand of politics.
If you as an individual unwittingly vote illegally, prepare to face harsh consequences. But if you’re a government official and you illegally nullify millions of votes, simply rinse and repeat. Because justice apparently is… blind.
President Donald Trump has called off plans to hold a military parade… for now. We think it should happen and here is why.
Here is one thing we already know thanks to the Mueller investigation: The finances of the rich and powerful need to be looked at much more closely or the rest of us will keep paying the price.
While the rest of the media was busy providing wall-to-wall coverage of a spat between two former reality TV stars, WhoWhatWhy delivered solid news.
What happens when you oppress basically everybody who is not a prince? You have idiots running the country. Exhibit A is Saudi Arabia, which just started an ill-advised fight with Canada.
After President Donald Trump attacked LeBron James on Twitter — in the same week that the basketball star opened a school for children in need — we thought it might be fun to compare the charitable records of both men. The result is a slam dunk.
The Trump administration has made it easier for oligarchs across the world to influence US politics. The Koch brothers are celebrating; transparency advocates are horrified.
