This circus of incompetence, corruption and cruelty will end. When it does, the men and women in Trump’s Republican Party will come to you, telling you they can repair the damage he’s done.

    Two House conservatives are calling on President Trump to “immediately withdraw" all troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, arguing the country needs to stop engaging in “endless wars.” In a letter sent to President Trump on Tuesday, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) said keeping a military presence in the region could mean a loss of power for the U.S. “Throughout your entire presidency, you have worked tirelessly to Make America Great Again. We are confident you will repeat this feat again after this pandemic. However, the United States will not remain a great power for...

    Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) is attributing GOP rival Donald Trump's rise in the polls to a momentary "loss of sanity." "I think this is a temporary sort of loss of sanity, but we're going to come back to our senses and look for someone serious to lead the country at some point," Paul said told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer on his show, when asked about a new national poll showing Trump still atop the crowded GOP field. Paul pointed to the extensive media coverage of the controversial candidate. "Television works, Wolf," said Paul. "If you would give some other candidates...

    You may be wondering why, over the last few months, the state pension problem – normally not a subject of widespread discussion – has been in the news. In fact, you may be wondering just what the state pension problem is. The problem – and it’s a big one – is that many of the public employee pension plans run by states don’t have enough money in them to make upcoming pension payments to retired state workers. The first time the subject came up recently was toward the end of February. That’s when teachers in Kentucky called a sick-out...

    Tina Lawson expressed indignation that Kentucky’s attorney general paused the highly scrutinized investigation into Breonna Taylor’s killing to get engaged. Lawson’s scorching Instagram post comes two weeks after daughter Beyoncé expressed exasperation in an open letter to Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron. Both are anguished that it has taken months to decide whether to charge the three Louisville police officers who killed Taylor while she slept in her bed at 1 a.m. Lawson is especially vexed that the 34-year-old attorney general is not working around the clock to expedite the conclusion of this monumental inquest.
