    In this term alone, the US Supreme Court has stripped women (and anyone who can get pregnant) of their right to life and liberty (Roe). It has stripped states of their authority to regulate firearms (Bruen). The court has hurdled over the wall separating church and state to create conditions for the rapid expansion of racial segregation (Carson). It has established a religion in public schools (Kennedy). It has enfeebled the right to know one’s rights upon arrest (Vega).

In one term, the court’s rightwing supermajority has undone a lot of what the 20th century had seen done in constitutional law. The court has unraveled the social fabric that many (white) Americans came to take for granted – that morality matters, that justice prevails and that history’s forward momentum reliably manifests a more perfect union. This court’s rightwing supermajority has demonstrated to anyone who once believed that...
    Yet Kevin Smith is calling New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan an 'absent senator.' A New Hampshire Republican is accusing the Democratic incumbent he hopes to challenge in November of being an absentee U.S. senator. To judge by their respective attendance records in the U.S. Senate and the New Hampshire House of Representatives, though, Sen. Maggie Hassan's is stellar, while Kevin Smith's own as a state legislator apparently was not. Smith, who served one term in the New Hampshire House in the 1990s, announced in January that he will resign from his job as Londonderry town manager and seek his party's nomination for Hassan's Senate seat. His campaign site says that he "is seen by national and local media as being one of the most influential conservatives in the Granite State." On Jan. 25, Smith tweeted from his campaign account, "@Maggie_Hassan has been an absent Senator. We deserve a Senator who cares more about what's on the minds of hard working Granite Staters than kowtowing to the party bosses in Washington....
    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Texas is one of 25 states — all with Republican governors — that have opted to curtail enhanced unemployment benefits two months early, citing difficulties being reported by some employers in finding workers. ♦♦♦ Click Here To Read The Complete Story On cbsnews.com ♦♦♦
    Muhammad Ifzal, 42, lost his job as a medical lab technician a few months before the pandemic. And when the crisis shuttered the economy, it was difficult to find work because medical procedures slowed down. The Irving, Texas, resident said he's now dealing with another unexpected shock — an early end to enhanced unemployment benefits in his state.  "I was so depressed," Ifzal said, who will lose all his benefits on June 26. That's when Texas is terminating several programs created by Congress to help millions of workers who lost their jobs due to the pandemic. "We didn't expect this kind of news. It was expected to go through September 4." Texas is one of 25 states — all with Republican governors — that have opted to curtail enhanced unemployment benefits two months early, citing difficulties being reported by some employers in finding workers. Lawmakers who are shutting off benefits early have typically pointed to the hiring needs of newly reopened businesses in hospitality, such as restaurants, that are finding a smaller pool of job candidates. In some cases,...

    DONALD Trump has become the 11th president to join the list of one-term presidents who failed to get re-elected after their first term. Trump is the first person to join the dreaded club, which started with founding father John Adams, since George H.W. Bush’s loss to Bill Clinton in 1992. 11Donald Trump became the 11th president to be kicked out after his first termCredit: Getty Images - Getty 11John Adams was the first president not to be re-elected to a second termCredit: Getty Images - Getty Adams, the only president elected under the Federalist Party, was a leader of the American Revolution and the first to live in White House. However, Adams received widespread criticism from his own Federalist Party and Jeffersonian Republicans for signing the Alien and Sedition Acts -- and clashing with veep Thomas Jefferson and Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton. Adams served from 1797 until 1801 after he came in third during the election behind his successor and friend, Jefferson, and Aaron Burr. Adams’ son, John Quincy Adams, became the second president to fail to win reelection after...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Homeowners and landlords would no longer have the option of renting out their houses or apartments through sites like Airbnb and HomeAway for only one night, and could face fines of up to $10,000 if they allow home-sharing guests to throw illegal parties, under a crackdown endorsed by the City Council License Committee on Tuesday. Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s proposal to rewrite the city’s home-sharing ordinance would also require people applying to host short-term rentals to submit their applications directly to the city, rather than through intermediaries like Airbnb and HomeAway; and would give the city more leeway in revoking the permits of scofflaws. The changes are the product of a working group the city convened earlier this year, following a subject matter hearing in March to discuss possible updates to the original 2016 ordinance regulating the short-term rental industry in Chicago. One of the biggest complaints about the industry over the past few years has been about homeowners and landlords renting out their property for only one night for large house parties, rather than legitimate guests looking...
    (CNN)On Tuesday, Joe Biden announced that Kamala Harris was his long-awaited and historic choice for vice president. Now that Biden has made one of the most consequential decisions of his campaign, we implore him to commit to serving only a single term as president, if elected in November. We believe this pledge is just as important as his choice of Harris as his running mate. Arick WiersonBradley HonanBiden is a good and honorable person who has devoted his life and career to public service. And our country desperately needs him to clean up the mess he will be inheriting from the most reckless, corrupt, and incompetent president in American history: Donald Trump. But at age 77, and with the United States in need of generational change, Biden should do the honorable thing and commit to standing aside after the completion of a successful first term -- as his advisers have already been privately discussing.To be clear, this would be an unusual and indeed unprecedented move. We don't believe such a commitment has ever been made by the nominee of...
    His response in full: "Well, one of the things that will be really great, you know, the word experience is still good. I always say talent is more important than experience. I’ve always said that. But the word experience is a very important word. It’s a very important meaning. I never did this before — I never slept over in Washington. I was in Washington I think 17 times, all of the sudden, I’m the president of the United States. You know the story, I’m riding down Pennsylvania Avenue with our first lady and I say, 'This is great.' But I didn’t know very many people in Washington, it wasn’t my thing.   "I was from Manhattan, from New York. Now I know everybody. And I have great people in the administration. You make some mistakes, like you know an idiot like Bolton, all he wanted to do is drop bombs on everybody. You don't have to drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to kill people." Instead of laying out policy positions and talking about how he can...
