  • Inflation Is Closing In on Fed’s Target (“Easing price pressures and rallying markets have Americans feeling better about the economy”)
  • Crime is down. No, really. (“To put the numbers in perspective, even a 4 percent drop in violent crime “would lead to the lowest violent crime rate nationally since 1969.” (If the rate of decline in property crime holds up, that rate would be the lowest since 1961.) At the very least, we know violent and property crime dropped, with the final data available next year.”)
  • House speaker’s Christian nationalist ties spark first amendment fears
  • Congress’ “Christian fascist” caucus: Mike Johnson brings MAGA fully into the House (“The elevation of Johnson to speaker is a kind of foreshadowing of the retrograde social order MAGA wants to impose”)
  • Scoop: Mike Johnson urges Biden to unleash executive actions on border security (Johnson’s actual job is to work with the Senate and the president to pass LEGISLATION. Instead, he skipped town.)

  • American democracy is cracking. These ideas could help repair it. (Great, but the problem is Republicans have blocked and will continue to block almost all of these.)
  • Jan. 6 rioters the far right claimed were antifa keep getting unmasked as Trump supporters (Why even give ANY credence to the far right’s insane claims?)
  • Hunter Biden Text Cited in Impeachment Inquiry Is Not What G.O.P. Suggests (“A 2019 message from President Biden’s son alluded to giving his father half his salary. The back story does not support assertions of corruption.”)

  • Again, Virginia looks to land major pro sports, but at what cost? (“It’s not that Virginia can’t have nice things. It’s a question of who pays for them and who owns what after it’s all done… I have never been comfortable with the notion of obligating public money to build lavish sports/entertainment playpens for billionaire owners of privately held teams.”)
