  • INDIANAPOLIS – “Make America Great Again?” As a child growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area I was aware of the civil rights and voting rights movements as they were taking place right at that time in what was called the Deep South, but I did not personally know of anyone participating in those activities. I did understand from the stories told to me by the elders of my family, especially on my mother’s side, that they had migrated to California from Louisiana because of the racism and oppressive economic conditions that kept so many Black families stagnant and systematically prevented them from progressing. So even though they were landowners, my great-grandmother, her 15 young adult children, and their families headed west. After all, my grandfather Rafe Taylor told me, in Louisiana if he was walking down a street and a white person was on the same side of the road, especially a white woman, he would have to cross the road or risk getting lynched. Those day-to-day experiences, among others, were just too much to bear. America wasn’t so great at that time.

  • Rokita and Messer's growing 'feud'
    “Messer is attacking me for using my small prop plane to travel Indiana meeting Hoosiers – the same plane I use doing charity work for wounded veterans and sick children. He's questioning my ethics. However, as the reporter notes, I have done nothing unethical and followed all relevant laws.” - U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette's Niki Kelly on the developing “feud” between he and his potential GOP U.S. Senate rival, U.S. Rep. Luke Messer.

  • The smirking Russians are laughing at us, literally
    NBC’s Peter Alexander’s report Friday night on NBC Nightly News was enough to get my blood boiling. In the wake of President Trump’s tin optic Oval Office meeting with Russian envoys the day after he fired FBI Director James Comey, Trump told the Russians that Comey was a “nut job” and that the “pressure" of the Russian probe has been “taken off.” Alexander panned to a press conference by a “smirking” Russian President Vladimir Putin, who accused the American press and Congress of “political schizophrenia.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and other Russian diplomats were seen laughing. Folks, the Russians aren’t laughing with us, they are laughing at us. Pathetic. - Brian A. Howey, Publisher
