States Lead the Way on Criminal Justice Reform

Over the past several months, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a step back on federal justice reform efforts, regressing to purportedly “tough on crime” stances. From advising increased penalties for nonviolent offenders to more recently promising an increase in the use of civil asset forfeiture by the federal government, Sessions has been doing everything in his power to give the Department of Justice (DOJ)’s full support to 80s-era policies from which many conservatives have abandoned in favor of evidenced-based practices that reduce recidivism and enhance public safety.

In adopting this “common core” states are relinquishing their right to compose their own education requirements.

The GOP's Statehouse Advantage

It has been four months since the election and Republicans are still in a funk. Whether hanging out at CPAC, in the local GOP office or on social media, wherever two or more are gathered in the Elephant’s name, the mood is downright dark. If Dr. Roget released his thesaurus today, under “conservative” you’d find blue, bummed, crestfallen, dejected, despondent, disconsolate, glum, lugubrious, morose, pessimistic and woebegone.

Fifty Shades of Freedom

50 > 1: Changing Washington from the Outside

Ask your neighbors and co-workers a simple question: "What are the wealthiest counties in America?" Here are the answers I got:“Is Manhattan a county? That has to be one of the richest.”“Which county has Beverly Hills?”“San Francisco County has to be up there. Silicon Valley too.”
