Rangel doesn’t blame ‘whitelash’

Donald Trump once called the Rev. Al Sharpton "a con man," meaning that Sharpton plays the race card less out of sincerity and more as a method to make demands and extract concessions.

A general misunderstanding

Last week's media chew toy involved the number of former generals President-elect Donald J. Trump has nominated for his cabinet. The ABC News website announced Trump "would have the most generals in the White House since World War II." What is that near-record number? Two. Yes, a whopping two among 14 announced cabinet-level picks.

Will Trump defy McCain?

When word leaked that Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, a holder of the Order of Friendship award in Putin's Russia, was Donald Trump's choice for secretary of state, John McCain had this thoughtful response:

Our one-party state

Donald J. Trump did America a huge favor by winning the White House in November. If Hillary Clinton had won, there would have been little stopping America from turning into a one-party country - a national political equivalent of California. As it is, California is turning into San Francisco, where outsiders stand zero chance of penetrating the liberal-only wall that surrounds City Hall.

Trump could learn from Hamilton

By now you've probably heard that Vice President-elect Mike Pence was booed by fellow theater-goers at a performance of the musical Hamilton, an unlikely hip-hop sensation that tells the story of Alexander Hamilton and other founding fathers.

Democrats: From temper tantrum to self-delusion

Hard to believe, but Hillary Clinton's campaign team thinks they lost because Donald Trump ignited America's inner bigot, which caused the KKK and Aryan Brotherhood members and sympathizers to show up in droves and vote Trump.

The real wall we need to build is in DC

Building a wall, per se, won't address what is really fueling a mass "illegal" immigration from south of the border.

Living in the twilight

It used to be, back when I first started in politics, that I subscribed to every newspaper I could, and I had read them all before anyone was even at the office. I didn't even consider it optional.

A Civil War Christmas

The American Civil War, despite its savagery and enormous loss of life, still was the cause for many changes to our nation, which has been largely forgotten in the historical telling.

Fake news versus junk news

The big "fake news" stories of 2016 were the polls. Most showed Donald Trump losing big in November, thus cable news ran countless renditions of the many ways Trump could not possibly win the necessary Electoral College vote. Getting the story utterly wrong should result in hand-wringing, hair-pulling and painful introspection in my profession; instead many in the news business have turned their hungry eyes on "fake news" disseminated on Facebook and Google.

State’s river flow plan flawed on many levels

Visionary investments in dams, canals and facilities made generations ago by local farmers have allowed our two irrigation districts – Oakdale and South San Joaquin – to have the most senior position for water rights on the Stanislaus River, rights that date back to 1853. Today, we provide irrigation water to more than 120,000 acres in two counties. SSJID also delivers clean, affordable drinking water to three cities. Together, our agencies have been responsible stewards of the river and its resources.

Wonders if her dog is stuck up

DEAR DIDI: My dog seems excited when I grab her leash to go for a walk but when we actually get out there she acts bored. Sasha looks away from everyone and everything. She is a Goldendoodle (golden retriever crossed with a standard poodle) and usually very friendly so I would think she would look at people with interest instead of yawning and looking away all the time. Is she just being stuck up?- Diva owner in Ripon

Mild neuropathy may be result of medication side effect

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have slight numbness and tingling in my feet and lower calves in both legs. It feels almost like my feet are going to sleep. I can feel pressure but not fine-touch sensation. I have been taking 200 mg of amiodarone daily for a year for heart PVCs, and that works very well. However, I have been told that it might be the cause of the numbness. My doctor indicated that it appears to be a mild neuropathy. I think it existed before taking the amiodarone, but seemed to become more noticeable after I was on it ...

Clinton vs. Trump II, 2020

Every sane person expects Green Party candidate Jill Stein's attempt to overturn the election with her vote recount effort to crash and burn. Given this, why would the Hillary Clinton campaign file a motion in support of a Stein-initiated request for a hand vote recount in Wisconsin?
