Eagle Pass is today's Fort Sumter. Biden must federalize the Texas National Guard. The standoff between Gov. Abbott's s tin soldiers and U.S. Border Patrol is the greatest challenge to federal authority in 60 years. The president must act.

The Looming Contest Between Two Presidents and Two Americas -- The general election matchup that seems likely between President Biden and former President Donald J. Trump is about fundamentally disparate visions of the nation. Mr. Biden leads an America that, as he sees it, embraces diversity, democratic institutions and traditional norms, that considers government at its best to be a force for good in society. Mr. Trump leads an America where, in his view, the system has been corrupted by dark conspiracies and the undeserving are favored over hard-working everyday people.

The barbarity of the American anti-abortion movement - Lawyers, Guns & Money ... Needless to say, the idea that the state should force women to give birth as a punishment for having sex is no more defensible than the idea that victims of sexual assault should be forced to carry pregnancies to term. Its all the same patriarchal cruelty.
