Opinion: Democrats pop the movement's balloon

The recent primary losses are not the first time the air went out of the movement-left’s visions of inevitability. It also happened during the 2016 presidential primaries when — for all of Bernie Sanders’ massive rallies and coverage by an obsessive media — the independent from Vermont lost to Hillary Clinton.

Opinion: What the Ohio election can tell us

Opinion: Michael Cohen turned over a rock in the muck

With the release of Michael Cohen’s secret recording of Donald Trump, a huge mucky rock was overturned.
