Elizabeth Warren’s Media Helpers Try to Revive Her Campaign at Bernie’s Expense

  Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate was so white that Antifa would punch it in the face, and moderators for CNN made it clear who they favored among the six white Democrats assembled on the Des Moines stage.

First-Person Plural Pronouns: Steve King and the Problems of ‘Our Civilization’

  Rep. Steve King is the most influential conservative in Iowa and, because of its first-in-the-nation caucuses, Iowa is one of the most influential states in presidential politics. The road to the White House goes through Iowa and, if you’re a Republican, you want Steve King on your side. It is therefore important to pay […]
