Characterizing Republicans as blanketly anti-immigration ignores the more truthful reality, which is that many have expressed support for increasing European immigration -- including Trump himself (remember Norway)

The GOP tax cuts were supposed to lead to a huge jump in bonuses for workers. They didn't, writes @LarryMishel https://on.epi.org/2RZE5J9

For sharp political observers, and even some in the crowd, Elizabeth Warren's speech at Morgan State University also functioned as a preview of her possible presidential run’s pitch to black voters

NEW from me: VA secretary Robert Wilkie gave inaccurate answers on his pro-Confederate ties during confirmation process

Elizabeth Warren: “I’m not a person of color. And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin.”

Another indication that while some white progressives have stubbornly ignored racial justice, Warren is well aware of the need to link isms with populism -- it is both politically advantageous and tells a more accurate picture of American inequality

Warren: “Two sets of rules: one for the wealthy and the well-connected. And one for everybody else,” she said. “Two sets of rules: one for white families. And one for everybody else. That’s how a rigged system works. And that’s what we need to change.”

NEW: In Baltimore today as Elizabeth Warren delivered the commencement address at Morgan State, her 2nd HBCU speech this year America "has systematically discriminated against black people in this country," she said, and it's time to "change the rules."

Donna Alexander was an outspoken advocate for domestic abuse survivors. Then her ex-boyfriend murdered her, police say.

in many ways, the story of mike flynn is pretty common: an intense hatred of Barack Obama was courted and furthered by conservative media to limits previously unfathomable

Sandy Hook was six years ago today. Parkland was 10 months ago today. Here's a look at what's happened with gun control legislation this year, where Congress hasn't done much but state legislatures have:
