Grandstanding: Mayoral Candidate Karen Bass Says She Can Solve LA’s Homelessness Crisis

As the late Glen Ford said, the Black misleadership class has no shame. Congresswoman Karen Bass's campaign for mayor of Los Angeles is full of empty promises. She proposes nothing that would actually address the needs of that city's unhoused population. Last week, in Congresswoman Karen Bass and The Will to Intervene, I reviewed Karen Bass’s foreign policy as California’s 37th District Congresswoman, Chair of the House Foreign Relations Committee’s Subcommittee on Africa, and Vice Chair of the National Endowment for Democracy.

After years of inattention, Congress scrambles to save defense supply chain

Increasingly worried by the extreme foreign dependence of defense industrial supply chains, Congress is teeing up legislation to address semiconductors and critical mineral vulnerabilities. The CNO's updated Navigation Plan is quite similar to last year's original plan — but it intentionally couches Navy priorities and capabilities in the terms of the new National Defense Strategy, to make a stronger case for Pentagon funding.

Federal appeals court says Americans with Disabilities Act protections cover ‘gender dysphoria,’ handing a win to trans people

A federal appeals court said Tuesday that the Americans with Disabilities Act covers individuals with “gender dysphoria,” handing a win to trans people in a case concerning a former inmate who alleged discrimination at a Virginia prison. In a majority opinion issued by a three-judge panel with the US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the court wrote, “In light of the ‘basic promise of equality … that animates the ADA,’ we see no legitimate reason why Congress would intend to exclude from the ADA’s protections transgender people who suffer from gender dysphoria.”

Herrera Beutler defeat: Lies and sexism

Re: “Herrera Beutler principled to the end, gracious in defeat” [Aug. 12, Opinion]: I was saddened to read that U.S. Rep.
