What a coincidence. With less than three weeks to go until the Iowa caucuses, we suddenly learn about a meeting that took place a year ago, with only two people in the room. She, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, told him, Sen. Bernie Sanders, she was running for president; he allegedly told her that a…

Actually, contends every 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, the economy is in really bad shape. It is only working for the wealthiest among us while leaving behind the poor, the working class and the shrinking middle class.

Monica hated her golfing ex-husband so much that when she felt it was time to start over, she made it a hard-and-fast rule that she would never date a golfer.

It is that time of year again, when the legislature in Annapolis is back in session. This means that it is also time for counties to keep a watchful eye on legislation that is introduced and the effect it may have on our citizens. I am your Talbot County liaison to MACo, the Maryland Associa…

Special counsel Robert Mueller warned last July that the Russians had conducted a “sweeping and systematic” campaign to undermine the last presidential election, and that a new attack was already underway. “They’re doing it as we sit here,” he told a Congressional committee.

Since the morning Sean Spicer walked to the White House pressroom podium and lied through his teeth about the size of Donald Trump’s Inauguration crowd, Trump’s strategy has been to create doubt in Americans’ minds about what is actually true and what Trump says is true.

Incontinence affects almost 18 million women, yet fewer than half of all people suffering from incontinence consult a health care provider. In particular, women often consider the problem an untreatable consequence of having children or aging. In fact, there are many causes of incontinence a…

With a Senate impeachment trial likely just days away, President Trump and Democrats are locked in a cycle of mutual trolling over whether the trial should include testimony from witnesses.

Dear Helaine: I need some financial advice. I am 60 years old and, after working for a U.S. embassy as local staff, I migrated to the United States in 2014. Upon separating from the embassy, I received a six-figure severance. I invested about $40,000 toward the purchase of a home in North Ca…

So here’s the good news: For all their assiduous efforts, President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr have failed to fully weaponize the U.S. criminal justice system. There’s never going to be a Russian-style show trial of Trump’s 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. The “…

You may have seen the Michelle Williams Golden Globes speech by now. The actress credited abortion for allowing her to achieve her professional successes. Pro-life and pro-choice people said what you would have expected in response, but what seemed to be largely missed was the misery.

Retired Marine Corps Gen. Jim Mattis, the former secretary of defense and an exceptionally well-read warrior, has said, “Throughout history, we see nations with allies thrive, and nations without allies wither.”

When I go on Facebook, I don’t see many ads for garden equipment, power tools or even big TVs and sound systems. But comfortable work clothes for a woman of a certain age? Low-heeled pumps with arch support? Expensive skin creams that turn back the clock? How did these companies find me?

America is the midst of an imaginary impeachment standoff between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “Both have drawn firm lines in the sand. Someone’s got to give,” one reporter recently declared.

In 2016, Bernie Sanders waited until July — long after the Democratic nomination had been decided — to endorse Hillary Clinton. Radio host Howard Stern asked Clinton if Sanders could have backed her earlier.

Maryland Agriculture Secretary Joseph Bartenfelder declared Monday that he saw no need to delay a state regulation that restricts the use of animal manure to fertilize farm fields, despite a study warning there are likely to be problems dealing with the excess manure that is expected to result.

Former national security adviser John Bolton shook up the Trump impeachment standoff recently with his announcement that, if subpoenaed, he is "prepared to testify" before a Senate trial. It's still not clear, of course, when or even if a trial might occur, since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi i…

The awful truth about the corporate and governmental power elites in our democratic society is that they really don’t like democracy at all. They prefer to rule by buying lawmakers, hiring lobbyists, running Orwellian PR campaigns, and relying on authoritarian police power to control people.

It’s a presidential election year, as you no doubt can’t escape knowing. The anger and conviction during such tumultuous times can be quite overwhelming.

The thing about Joe Biden, as the all-important, ultimately trivial Iowa caucuses loom, is that hardly anybody seriously dislikes him. Not really. Oh, it’s possible to find dissenters here and there, mainly people who affix slogans such as “neo-liberal” and who think that people who disagree…

2020 is the year the Methodist Church will enact their new “rule” regarding homosexuals. They will no longer allow homosexuals to be ordained ministers. They condemn and disallow same sex marriage and basically condemn all homosexuals. If a pastor breaks their new ruling, they will be called…

Being a conservative in perhaps the most liberal state in the country, Massachusetts, I'm often asked why I support the president by those on the left, some of whom think he's a racist, misogynist, homophobe, criminal and, for good measure, a bully.
