God or Money: NFL Makes Georgia Governor Decide

You cannot serve both God and money."The NFL is insisting that states be made to choose between the two--God or money: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, now under construction in downtown Atlanta, is one of several stadiums under consideration for Super Bowl LIV, which would be played at the end of the NFL's centennial 2019 season in February … [Read more...]

Will Rules Matter for Trump and Fans at GOP Convention?

Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal and other Democratic lawmakers filibustered to block the bill they … [Read more...]

Marco Rubio and Today’s Leadership Test

After the voting results yesterday, it is abundantly clear, or at least it should be, that Marco Rubio has no path to a majority of delegates in the Republican primary.But that doesn’t mean he does not have significant influence at this moment in the race. In fact, he may be the most influential player today. How he makes his next move will matter significantly for the future of our nation.Leadership can be a funny thing, often requiring us to take counterintuitive actions to keep m … [Read more...]
