commentary: on the morning of june 14, as i watched news reports of a republican congressman being shot (for being republican) while at practice for a bipartisan charity baseball game in virginia, my immediate reaction was to text congressman steve pearce, who was at the scene, and offer prayers for those involved.courtesy photoaubrey dunni then left my santa fe apartment, and as i climbed into my vehicle i noticed glass on the front seat and looked up to see a bullet hole in the windshield.to say i was concerned is an understatement. because of what was unfolding in washington d.c., i immediately thought it was related to my political affiliation.to compound the situation, my deputy commissioner’s vehicle was vandalized the day before; while she was working in the field someone slashed he

when i became a doctor, i went to work in an emergency room that admitted and treated the kind of hard-working, low-income farmworker families i grew up with. for many of them, the er was their first and last resort after avoiding the doctor for years because they had no health insurance.we didn’t check a patient’s political affiliation before treating them. i didn’t check the party affiliation of the other doctors and nurses, either, and they didn’t ask me for mine. rather, we worked together as a team, following through on the hippocratic oath we had taken to treat patients to the best of our ability and, above all, to “do no harm.”i treated patients before the passage of the affordable care act, and i treated patients after, just as the legislation was beginning to take effect. i notice

iowa republican proposes bill restricting left-leaning faculty at state colleges


free speech on college campuses has long been a cause for concern of the right, specifically the notion that, according to the right, there is no room for conservative views or speech on campuses or in classrooms. to address this, republican iowa lawmaker mark chelgren introduced a bill in his state over the weekend that would require state universities to consider the political affiliations of candidates applying for faculty positions.chelgren’s proposed legislation reportedly seeks to create “more partisan balance among faculty.” the bill’s language reads as such: “a person shall not be hired as a professor or instructor member of the faculty at such an institution if the person’s political party affiliation on the date of hire would cause the percentage of the faculty belonging to one p






can senators reject gorsuch for purely political reasons? and other confirmation


this week’s senate judiciary committee hearings on the nomination of judge neil gorsuch to the supreme court provide an opportunity to ask basic questions about the hearing process itself. what follows is a quick q and a about qs and a’s.q: are senators allowed to vote for or against a nominee for partisan or political reasons?a: yes. the politicization of this process is a feature, not a bug. judges do not pick other judges; politicians do, thanks to a constitution designed to accommodate a two-party system, a system reinforced by the 12th amendment (adopted in 1804) and by a landmark congressional statute in 1842. the amendment facilitated a two-party presidential contest, and the statute encouraged a two-party congressional system. presidents have historically picked justices from their






2016 unmasked lifestyle bloggers’ homogenous political superficiality

today's feminists no longer fight for women’s choices


the feminist movement in america began as a fight for political suffrage, economic independence, and personal autonomy. now, almost a century after the nineteenth amendment was ratified, many so-called feminist lobbies and leaders no longer promote the political interests of american women, but instead promote leftist policies.historically, the feminist movement was progressive, pushing boundaries from one goal to the next, continuing to fight battles for equality in the voting booth, schools, the workplace, health care, and other major spheres of private and public life. this gave feminism a natural affiliation with political progressivism, but also put it on a trajectory of progress for progress’s sake.where progressivism has outstripped—or in some cases, directly attacked—the original e
