50 Years Ago The NHTSA Tried To Make America’s Cars Ugly, But Cars Fought Back

Governments and their agencies love making life hard for automakers in the name of supposedly making life better for the rest of us. There are rules about sound and exhaust emissions, and, of course, laws about safety. And to keep engineers on their toes, those regulations are constantly changing. From this year any new car […]

Will the Next Pandemic Start With Chickens?

No one I asked, however—not Murphey, not the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, not Lincoln Premium Poultry—said they were aware of a second problem that Lanc had observed: manure being loaded onto trucks at one of the Gallus-owned barns near his house, within the control area, another act that should have required permits. (Lanc had notified […]

How Does The Ferrari Purosangue Stack Up Against Rivals From Aston Martin, Bentley, Lamborghini And More?

The 2023 Ferrari Purosangue, the company’s first crossover, is a hit, and that’s before anyone outside the company has even had a chance to get behind the wheel to find out how good – and how Ferrari – it really is. Ferrari is limiting production to just a couple of thousand cars per year and […]

Is This When Democrats Finally Learn How to Message?

Add to that the concurring opinion of Clarence Thomas, who wrote that the court “should reconsider” other decisions—including the decriminalization of same-sex relationships; the right to gay marriage; and 1965’s Griswold v. Connecticut, which held that married couples have a right to contraception. The two major parties “do not operate as simple mirror images,” the […]

Economics, Democracy, and Freedom: It’s All One Argument

He was a malignant force in many ways. But I admit that he came up with a great way to open a book. Friedman is no cagey welterweight feeling the opponent out in round one. He’s a heavyweight who comes out swinging right at the opening bell. This is not about economics, he wrote. It’s […]

Why Do Bugatti And Hennessey Both Think They Hold The Fastest Convertible Record?

In the run-up to the release of the 2024 Bugatti W16 Mistral the guys at Molsheim dropped a big hint to their plans by celebrating the 10th birthday of the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, which achieved a record-breaking 254.04 mph (408.84 km/h) at Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien test track in 2013. That literally hair-raising top speed made […]

Tim Ryan: Right Man, Right Place, Right Time

Indeed, except for trade and some griping about inflation, the Republicans’ pitch to the working class bypasses bread-and-butter issues entirely. Consider a memo Representative Jim Banks sent House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy in March 2021, proposing that the GOP “permanently become the Party of the Working Class.” What substantive positions, apart from trade restrictions, did […]

Can Biden Wake Up the Youth Vote?

Lee is, of course, something of an outlier. Most of the candidates running are incumbents, nearly every Democratic primary has concluded, and there are few new Squad contenders in the mix—not that that would necessarily be a boon everywhere in the United States. She’s young and will likely be Pennsylvania’s first Black woman representative—the district, […]

Tom Emmer Is the Republican Party’s Stealth Bomber

Following Trump’s election, Emmer rose in the NRCC ranks, becoming chair in late 2018, after Republicans lost their majority in the House. At the time, chairing the NRCC looked like a thankless task, as Trump was expected to further depress the GOP’s margins atop the ticket in 2020. But controlling the money begets relationships and […]

Whatever Happened to Climate Change on the Campaign Trail?

“If we had more people voting and we had youth turning out as other generations do and increased those numbers, we would be able to get more progressive legislation,” Hargreaves told me. “That progress is not going to continue if we sit at home and don’t vote. What you have to do is vote. Get […]

The Abortion Elections All Across America

In some states, abortion itself will be directly on the ballot. California voters will consider a constitutional amendment that would enshrine abortion rights in the state constitution. “This is absolutely a viable option for other states—and one that lawmakers and advocates elsewhere are also working on,” Timmaraju told me. In Michigan, to take one example, […]

The Bland Ambition of Kevin McCarthy

There are also plenty of actions a Republican-controlled House could take that have nothing to do with legislation but would be designed to weaken Biden and the Democrats: investigating Hunter Biden, for example, or opening their own probe into the activity of the select committee investigating January 6. Republican leadership is already plotting to subpoena […]

Welcome to Georgia, Where the Democrats’ Electoral Dreams Live or Die

The state’s changing demographics help explain its political shifts. Georgia’s non-Hispanic white population dropped from 70 percent in 1980 to 50.1 percent in 2020, per the census. The Atlanta metro area has the fourth-largest Black immigrant population in the United States, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution; its metro holds more than half of the state’s […]

The Rapid Rise of Elaine Luria, the Boldest Moderate in Congress

Unlike almost all endangered incumbents, Luria has regarded politics as secondary during the first half of this year. Instead, she’s been understandably preoccupied with her day job—documenting Trump’s role in directing a coup attempt to overturn the 2020 election. On a typical workday over the Fourth of July congressional recess, Luria was up at 5 […]

Fight Back, Blue America!

“Probably the most creative, although legally risky thing that states could do is say that every state says that the location of care for telehealth is where the patient is,” Cohen said. That would mean that a California nurse practitioner who coordinates a pill abortion for a patient in Alabama is acting legally in the […]

The Arizona Republican Primary Is Ground Zero for America’s Hysteria Over Critical Race Theory and Drag Queens

The broader narrative of moms under attack was gaining some national heft. Pizzagate promoter Jack Posobiec claimed that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland had “authorized the FBI Counterterrorism Division to target parents at schoolboard meetings,” and Lake chimed in, tweeting, “If I was governor right now I would pull any funding that was being used […]

The Road To Celestiq: A Look Back At Cadillac’s Previous Ultra-Luxury Concepts

The unveiling of the Celestiq is a watershed moment for Cadillac as the concept previews their upcoming flagship sedan, which aims to return them to being the “standard of the world.” While the Celestiq is bound to turn heads, Cadillac has been playing around with the idea of a flagship for nearly two decades.

After the Eviction Moratorium

Martha’s team was willing to settle. They had no legal recourse to stop the eviction, and Martha had, after all, been trying to leave for three years. Martha stayed silent as the judge, who spoke about her as if she wasn’t there, and Florence went back and forth. As the two seemed to near agreement, […]
