In a society such as ours where the elite political class is determined to force as much of their agenda down the throats of citizens, whether it has broad support or not, there is way too much to report and way too little time to report it.

Democrats see New Jersey's 3rd Congressional District as one of their best chances to pick up a House seat in November's general election in a race full of early spending on accusatory ads, and in which the insurance business looms large.

The White House on Sunday put the pressure on Congress to vote this week in favor of President Obama's plan to destroy Islamic State by training and arming Syrians rebels, making clear that sending U.S. combat troops is not an option. "If it's not the Syrian opposition, trained and equipped by the United States, authorized by Congress and the president, a then it'll have to be U.S. troops," White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough told "Fox News Sunday."
More than 120 members of Congress have urged the Supreme Court to recognize that pregnant workers are entitled to reasonable accommodations such as light duty, saying it's needed to ensure that expectant mothers are not forced out of their jobs. In a friend-of-the-court brief, the Democratic lawmakers - 99 from the House, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi , and 24 senators - said UPS delivery driver Peggy Young of Lorton, Va., was treated unfairly by her employer when it asked her to take unpaid maternity leave rather than provide a less strenuous position as her doctors advised.
Democrats routinely deride Republicans as extremists bent on coarsening the discourse. In January 2014, in the same interview in which he infamously claimed that ISIS was a "jayvee" team, President Obama blamed conservative media for polarizing the country: The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I'm not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I'm somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things we've put in place worked better than people might think.
From its inception, the Affordable Care Act has faced withering attacks from conservatives who denounce it as a government overreach, even socialist.

Dressed like an elderly, upscale biker chick in a leather jacket that she accessorized with $10,000 Tahitian pearls, Nancy Pelosi recently reemerged. This time the House Minority Leader made an incoherent appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher."
A growing chorus of liberal Democrats is pushing President Obama to get Congress's explicit approval before launching missile strikes into Syria. The pressure from supporters on Capitol Hill is not only a headache for Obama, but also puts House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats in the difficult position of bucking a broad segment of their own caucus in order to protect an ally in the White House.
It saddens me that 20 years after my sister Nicole's murder, we are still seeing the same crimes, just different names, over and over again. The Ray Rice case reflects our misunderstanding of what domestic violence is, and the Oscar Pistorius case reminds me so much of what happened to Nicole: victims defending their partners, and batterers blaming the victim.
