The Republican Plot to Turn Back the Clock Is Just Getting Started

As told by former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson this week, on January 6, 2021, President Donald Trump went to a “Stop the Steal” rally, hoping to meet a crowd of armed and angry supporters whom he expected to personally lead to the U.S. Capitol; he lashed out when he was told that no, he could not join his mob in their collective mission. Hutchinson’s...

Live From Brazil: A Clueless Tucker Carlson

Last year, Tucker Carlson traveled to Budapest to celebrate Viktor Orbán, Hungary’s aggressively illiberal and xenophobic prime minister, by filming a week of episodes that included “lessons” the United States could draw from his anti-democratic, immigration-restrictionist rule. In a sit-down interview, Carlson nodded approvingly as Orbán railed against...

The Supreme Court’s EPA Ruling Was the Kicker in a Week of Terrible Climate News

On the one hand, the Supreme Court has opened the door to the destruction of the administrative state and limited the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate power sector emissions. On the other hand, a lot of other bad stuff happened recently too. While many eyes in the United States were mainly fixed on Supreme Court rulings over the...

The Increasingly Sad Tweets of Jeff Bezos

In the summer of 2008, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos dug into his personal venture capital fund to find some money to invest in a fledgling social media company. The firm’s platform had been online for two years by then, but had staked its future on an ambitious goal to transform itself into “a global communication utility.” A new round of private funding...

Who Said It: Lucy Van Pelt or Joe Manchin?

Will he or won’t he? With a deadlocked 50–50 Senate, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has spent the past year reveling in his role as the deciding vote on Joe Biden’s agenda.

The Supreme Court’s “Remain in Mexico” Ruling Is a Tiny Step Toward Fixing Our Gruesome Immigration Policy

The 53 men, women, and children who perished after being left in the darkness and stifling heat of a tractor-trailer abandoned on the side of a road in San Antonio this week had twin objectives: reaching the United States and, with it, finally achieving personal safety. In the end, they would achieve only the former, and it would be their death sentence.There...

On Thursday morning, the Supreme Court issued a 6–3 decision to limit the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate greenhouse gases from the power sector using a specific provision of the Clean Air Act.

Donald Trump was the big loser in Tuesday’s primaries, when voters rejected several of his handpicked candidates in Colorado. A week earlier, though, he was a winner—or at least deemed to have won a tactical victory, though not a resounding one: The first Republican who voted for his impeachment after the January 6, 2021, riot, Tom Rice, lost his bid...

A Hearing Aid Oligopoly Is Trying to Strangle Cheap Over-the-Counter Competitors

About one-third of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 have lost at least some of their hearing, and after 75 that rises to nearly half. Most of these people don’t get hearing aids; indeed, among those with hearing loss age 70 or older, less than one-third have ever even tried hearing aids.

Is Nuclear Power Just Too Dangerous?

On February 24, 2022, Russian troops began occupying Ukrainian territory in the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
