Around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970, and in the years following, there was a torrent of apocalyptic predictions and many of those predictions were featured in his Reason article. Well, it's now the 48th anniversary of Earth Day, and a good time to ask the question again that Bailey asked 18 years ago: How accurate were the predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970? The answer: The prophets of doom were not simply wrong, but spectacularly wrong, according to Bailey.
Are we ready? Some 48 years ago we were. April 22, 1970, was about to happen. It would be the first Earth Day, proposed by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, Democrat of Wisconsin.
Let us stipulate that Donald Trump is unique. From his allusion to his privates during a GOP debate to the public berating of his attorney general to the nicknames he uses to disparage opponents, Mr. Trump tramples on the expected norms for a president.
President Donald Trump’s unexpected announcement that he is mulling the pardon of legendary boxer Jack Johnson raises the obvious question: Why didn’t Barack Obama do it first?

As members of the U.S. Senate consider how to vote on CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination to be secretary of state, they should take one particularly persuasive quote to heart: “My general rule is that the president gets to choose who he wants or who she wants for their Cabinet members.” Those words weren’t uttered by an official inside the Trump administration or one of their allies outside. Rather, they are the words of former Vice President Joe Biden, who served with President Obama and spent decades in the Senate, including several years atop the very foreign...
With the elimination of most state and local tax (SALT) deductions, Congress has put a bull’s-eye on high-tax states like California and New York. While there’s a reasonable federalist argument that states are exactly where most spending and taxation should take place, that’s almost beside the point now. By eliminating SALT deductions without a commensurate shrinkage of federal income tax rates, Congress has set the stage for what could be the greatest migration since the aftermath of World War II, with roughly 15 million people moving from high-tax states to low-tax states...
Senate Democrats continued their strong fundraising in the first three months of 2018, maintaining a strong cash advantage in every state they’re defending this fall. Democrats are defending 25 seats total – including 10 in states President Trump won in 2016 -- to just nine for Republicans. In all 10 of those Trump-state races, the incumbent outraised every Republican challenger. (Three Republicans surpassed Democrats after making sizable loans to their campaigns.) Still, every Democratic incumbent ended March with more cash on hand than their GOP challengers.
Shania Twain, the country singer who has sold more than 100 million records and is in the midst of attempting a big comeback, is probably wishing that she had steered clear of politics right about now.

When a political figure is accused of wrongdoing, a conversation begins among journalists, commentators, and public officials. Are the charges true? Can the accusers prove it?
There is no one better to have as our secretary of state at this dangerous time.
