  • A challenge from the left for Hillary?

    Most political reporters have already written the script for 2016: Hillary Clinton announces she will run for president shortly after the mid-term elections of November 2014, Democrats clear the field for her, she romps unscathed through the primaries,...
  • Congress for sale, now more than ever

    As chief justice, I have no doubt that John G. Roberts' number one goal is to turn this democracy into a plutocracy. And he's well on his way to doing so. It didn't start with the Roberts Court, of course. It started with the court's 1976 Buckley v....

     Jim Berk invests a lifetime of success into Participant Media
    At just 21, a kid from the San Fernando Valley named Jim Berk began work as a music teacher at Carson High School. Within a couple of years, the teacher, not much older than some of his students, had turned a woebegone marching band into one of the best...
  • Straight out of Mad magazine: Spy vs. spy

    Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. We found that out again this week. Not even John le Carre or Daniel Silva could write a spy novel as multi-leveled, complicated, and unpredictable as the plot unveiled by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chair...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- There are those who don't believe politicians can ever enjoy a second life. They're wrong. Just go to Sacramento and check in on Gov. Jerry Brown. He's not only enjoying a second political life, he's survived two, three, four, or...
