These are invigorating days for the left. With the inauguration of Joe Biden as the country’s 46th chief executive and the recent sweep of two U. S. senate seats from Georgia, the Democrats are back in force armed with an extensive agenda.

In his inaugural address, President Joe Biden extended an olive branch to supporters of former president Donald Trump: “Let’s start afresh, all of us. Let’s begin to listen to one another again. Hear one another, see one another, show respect to one another. Politics doesn’t have to be a rag…

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris leapt into action after taking the oath of office on Wednesday. Biden signed 17 executive orders, dismantling many of Donald Trump’s signature policies. Biden rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement and the World Health Organization, ended th…

Poor Justin Trudeau. The Canadian prime minister must have been relieved to be done with President Donald Trump, only to learn that Joe Biden plans to tell Canada to pound sand as one of his first priorities.

Joe Biden’s inauguration falls on the 60th anniversary of perhaps the most famous presidential inauguration, that of John F. Kennedy on January 20, 1961. With political and cultural divisions roiling the nation, one can be forgiven for nostalgically looking back at the former event. Kennedy’…

Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, along with a new Biden administration, promise sweeping policy changes in the United States. This includes campaign pledges to remake America’s electricity mix. But with campaign season over, Democrats should put rhetoric aside and pursue a bipa…

Note that we have not heard from Iran, China, Russia, North Korea or even ISIS. This would be an opportune time for one of these enemies of the United States to launch an attack or do lesser malicious mischief. The U.S. is in a weakened condition with a deranged president who could do such c…

President Donald Trump finally did what the foremost metaphor associated with his political rise would have suggested – he plowed his plane into the ground.

On January 6 the world watched as pro-Trump supporters orchestrated a shocking attempt to seize the Capitol Building, and ostensibly, harm members of Congress who were debating the question of certifying the election of Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris. The President bears responsibility for i…

The unprecedented events since November’s election have left many Americans angry, bewildered and disenfranchised. Millions believe the vote was rigged and such strong sentiments do not bode well for future political bipartisanship.

President Donald Trump’s second impeachment was swift and decisive, just one week after he incited a violent white supremacist mob attack on the U.S. Capitol that left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer.

There likely is no issue attracting more attention today than election integrity issues, and rightly so. The foundation of our form of self-governance depends upon the confidence placed in electing representatives to represent us at the local level all the way up to the highest office in the…

As the New Year asserts itself — a year that begins in global lockdown and political shock-and-awe — an extraordinary question emerges: Are we on the brink of real change?

In the past four years, my job as a psychiatrist has given me a front row seat to the alarming gaps in our American society--our lack of justice, our extreme income inequality, our levels of violence, our poverty, the disconnect of the elite class. It has also put me in touch with the darkne…

I would like to respond to the recent article that appeared in The Daily Review on Jan. 8 about the local citizens attending the Washington, D.C. rally on Jan. 6. When Doug McLinko used the words “upbeat and happy” to describe the rally that eventually turned into one of the most tragic days…

There’s a reason we expect presidents of the United States to say that they support the peaceful transfer of power.

Whatever you want to call the violent assault in Washington on January 6, 2021—a mob action, a siege, a coup attempt, a riot, domestic terrorism, an insurrection—the fault clearly lies with the president. Donald Trump called for it, and when it happened—“an act of violent sedition aided and …

During New Year’s Eve, many stayed up not to see the emergence of 2021, but to make sure 2020 made its way out.

Recently, Senator Gene Yaw penned a missive to his constituents attempting to explain is impotence in the face of irregularities surrounding the 2020 General Election in general and his feckless leadership in the General Assembly in defense of President Trump in particular. Yaw further attem…

Congress convened Wednesday to perform the largely ceremonial counting of Electoral College votes and to declare Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Donald Trump countered with a rally that he had been planning for weeks. “Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, will …

At his Georgia rally Monday night, President Donald Trump predicted the state’s senate runoffs: “If [Republicans] lose, they’re going to blame Trump.”

Today, Congress will meet in a joint session of the House of Representatives and Senate to count the Electoral College votes. I will object to the certification of Pennsylvania’s electors due to unconstitutional actions taken by Governor Tom Wolf, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, and the P…

Truth be told, I should not be writing this to you now. It was part of the code I signed in order to do the behind-the-scenes protest mental health work that I would never contact “the media.”

Donald Trump’s telephone conversation with Georgia’s secretary of state will go down in history as a classic case of election interference, totally in keeping with Trump’s disdain for democratic processes and perfect willingness to use any means, legal or otherwise, to get his way.

Lately, I have been reflecting on what I have in common with extremists. It turns out that the list is longer than one would think. I hold their same passions for change, an ability to withstand discomfort – put more bluntly, tolerance for risk of pain that some term masochism – and I share …

New Jersey Congressman Bill Pascrell Jr. recently wrote a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congresswomen Zoe Lofgren, the chairwoman of the Committee on House Administration, that quoted from the Fourteenth Amendment:

It’s been a terrible year for the American worker, with a notable bright spot courtesy of one of the tech firms in the crosshairs of regulators and lawmakers.

Some scholarly soul observed that 2020 began as 1974 with a presidential impeachment. Then it turned into 1918 with a global pandemic that quickly morphed into 1929 with the March stock market crash, followed by 2008 with a recession, and finally 1968 with civil rights protests.

In my last column, I offered my list of the 10 worst things President Donald Trump did in 2020. Here are the 10 best:

About a month after issuing his latest job-crushing orders to the state’s restaurants, bars and other small businesses, Gov. Tom Wolf held a press event two days before Christmas to announce he was “initiating a transfer of funds” to provide relief to businesses struggling because of those orders.

At the outset, and in the interest of full disclosure, I will state that I voted for Donald Trump every time his name was on the ballot. I also supported his campaign financially. Do I like the fact that the candidate I supported lost? NO. Nevertheless, our system requires that, as a citizen…
