Bernie Sanders’s Expansive Student-Debt-Cancellation Plan

Bernie Sanders’s Expansive Student-Debt-Cancellation PlanDemocratic presidential hopefuls are full of ideas about what to do with the nation’s $1.6 trillion of student debt. Today, Senator Bernie Sanders announced the most expansive proposal of those the candidates have suggested thus far. Sanders, along with Representatives Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Pramila Jayapal of Washington, introduced new legislation to cancel all student debt—yes, all student debt—and make public colleges debt-free.The thing that most sets their proposal apart from others that have come before it is that it includes no income or other restrictions, meaning even doctors and lawyers, who tend to carry a lot of debt but also tend to be well paid, would be eligible. When asked at a press conference this morning why his proposal would extend to such top-earners, Sanders responded, “I believe in universality and that means if Donald Trump wants to send his kids to a public…

The Nationalists in the Ritz-Carlton

The Nationalists in the Ritz-CarltonIt might have been the first-ever nationalist revolt launched from a Ritz-Carlton ballroom. This week, conservative intellectuals and politicos in Washington tucked into plated dinners and sipped from at least four varieties of seltzer at a new gathering, the National Conservatism Conference. In defiance of conservative-movement shibboleths, they applauded new rallying cries: No more worshipping on the altar of free markets at the expense of the middle class. No more endless wars dedicated to slaying perceived monsters overseas. No more shame about saluting the flag, defending borders, and demanding assimilation. “Today,” declared Yoram Hazony, the American-educated Israeli scholar who organized the event, “is our independence day.”The featured speakers included a fair number of strange bedfellows. Christopher DeMuth, the former longtime head of the American Enterprise Institute, or AEI, who helped establish the think-tank’s free-market, small government, anti-regulation bona fides, was the unofficial chairman of their steering…

Why Can’t the Media Admit the Democratic Party Has a Right Wing?

Why Can’t the Media Admit the Democratic Party Has a Right Wing?The 2020 presidential candidacy race is in full (absurdly early) swing, and there is a clear and obvious internal battle currently raging for the soul of the Democratic Party. One faction is attempting to pull the party in a more populist, social-democratic direction, while another favors maintaining a neoliberal, pro-business course. We all know the most prominent members of the first group: The likes of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders and freshmen representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley are constantly referred to (accurately) as representing the left of the party (e.g., New York Post, 7/9/19; New York Times, 4/10/19; New Yorker, 6/18/19), but also as a cabal of “extremist” (Atlantic, 4/3/19; The Hill, 6/17/19), “far-left” revolutionaries (CNN, 7/7/19; CNBC, 7/5/19)  who have “contempt” for Americans (Fox News, 7/11/19). Given the broad overlap of their political positions with those of the public at large (FAIR.org, 1/23/19), those labels, popular as they…

Trump Nominates Antonin Scalia’s Son as Labor SecretaryOn Thursday evening, Donald Trump announced that he will nominate Gene Scalia, the son of former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and a prominent conservative lawyer in his own right, to serve as labor secretary. I am pleased to announce that it is my intention to nominate Gene Scalia as the new Secretary of Labor.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 19, 2019 If confirmed by the US Senate, Scalia will replace Alex Acosta, who stepped down following outrage of a plea deal he oversaw in Jeffery Epstein’s case in 2007. But Scalia may face an uphill battle in the confirmation hearings. George W. Bush nominated Scalia to serve as the Labor Department’s top lawyer, but…
