Joe Biden Wants to Take America Back to a Time Before Trump Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Feature Is that what Democrats want? Credit Credit Devin Yalkin for The New York Times Supported by ByMichael Steinberger July 23, 2019 On a warm, overcast Thursday afternoon last October, I was throwing a Frisbee to my dog while trying to watch my daughter’s field-hockey game when Joe Biden came walking down a grassy ridge a few feet away. He appeared to be alone; if he had a security detail with him, it was being exceedingly discreet. Biden’s granddaughter Natalie was on the opposing team, and he was back in Wilmington, Del., where we both happen to live, to see the game before returning to the campaign trail.

By: Bharat Chugh 11 Jun 2019 8:39 AM GMT Since you're here, I take it that you want to be a Judge, or, at any rate, are intrigued by the thought of being a judge.You may find this ironic that someone who hung his boots as a judge after roughly 4 years of service is writing an article on what it means to be a judge, and how does one go about achieving that objective. I am happy if you had this thought. The first part of training to be a judge is to take absolutely nothing at face value. Measure skepticism is a virtue.

Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host. [Get On Politics delivered to your inbox.] Cash-strapped government workers are worried about buying food and making rent. Trash and human feces (seriously!) are piling up in national parks. Even the Secret Service is feeling stressed. And yet, 19 days into what’s become the country’s second-longest government shutdown, there’s no compromise in sight, and no additional negotiations scheduled. The problem, of course, is politics. The shutdown hinges on a border wall battle that’s become about so much more than a wall. In many ways, President Trump’s fight … [Read more...] about The Political Benefits of Shutting It Down
