Doth protest too much? Methinks.
Highly recommend “Impeachment: An American History” - timely, given present American moment. Excellent short book by @jmeacham @peterbakernyt @jeffreyaengel and @TimNaftali .
Here's a weird piece of trivia. Apparently Congress has Constitutional powers as well. And apparently the nation's Founders took those powers seriously because they saw how having a king worked out. Who knew?
The Constitution should not be considered a mere speed bump in the path of a reckless driver.
I'm old enough to remember when "national emergency" actually meant an emergency to the nation and not an emergency to a damaged politico ego.
Opportunity, RIP. You represented the more noble instincts and dreams of the human mind to seek knowledge and explore the horizons of our universe. https://t.co/TkxmV35cWD
President Trump has seen some rebounding in some polls. His standing in the face of all that we’ve seen might infuriate those who oppose him. But it would be wise to not confuse his vulnerability with his being vanquished when it comes to prospects for re-election.
"A wall, a wall! My presidency for a wall!" ...or a fence... or steel slats... or a metaphor... or claiming victory in defeat...
I believe the anti-science GOP (a relatively recent development) and a president who baths with glee in his own ignorance will pass into the realm of historical anomaly. What's sad and dangerous is this recklessness on science couldn't have come at a worse time for our planet.

Just a thought: Which should be considered more “marginal” - believing in Santa at age 7 or not believing in climate change at age 72?
News anchors looking into camera and reading a script handed down by a corporate overlord, words meant to obscure the truth not elucidate it, isn't journalism. It's propaganda. It's Orwellian. A slippery slope to how despots wrest power, silence dissent, and oppress the masses.
When someone starts an argument with "I'm not a scientist, but..." maybe we should stop listening to them weighing in on science. And maybe news shows should stop asking these pundits to talk about something they’re not qualified to talk about.
I'd much rather live in a world reflecting the values, philanthropy, and yes intelligence of LeBron James and Don Lemon's intelligent commitment to truth and journalism than the divisive peevishness, lies, and narrow self-interest displayed by the President of the United States.
I think with a lot of high hopes crashing for Democratic voters in places like Florida and with Beto, there is maybe a drastic underappreciation of how Democratic control of the House will change the course of this country. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a very big deal.
Mass murder at a Pittsburgh synagogue. A killer targeting African Americans in Kentucky. The bomb maker. The focus should not be only on Trump, but all who excuse, abet, or stand in silence while hate is stoked for political gain.
News the White House pulled Jim ’s credentials is not an attack on one journalist but all of the press. There should be complete solidarity. This is a moment for any Republican who says they believe in the Constitution to stand up.
Watching the American flag go up and down the White House flag pole over whether and how to honor the life of John McCain is a perfect symbol for an administration morally and emotionally adrift from common decency.
The President of the United States trusts the word of a former KGB agent over the consensus of the American intelligence community backed by a ton of facts. That is a shocking reality. Everyone who excuses Trump’s behavior must answer that now, and when history inevitably judges.
