What a weird thing Sen. C. Scott Grow, R-Eagle, is up to.
I want to thank Butch and Nathan Alford and Marty Trillhaase for the opportunity to express views that a great percentage of the Lewiston Tribune’s readership probably believe.
All four members served in leadership positions in the Idaho Legislature early in their political careers and all were sensitive about any level of federal interference in Idaho’s business. I can only imagine the steam that would come from their nostrils if a member of Congress from the East…
Let us begin with this fact: The left always suppresses speech. Since Vladimir Lenin and the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, there has been no example of the left in control and not crushing dissent.
If you live in Idaho, you have extra reason to watch carefully the Idaho Legislature this year: It is the font of all wisdom. Or at least, its statements and actions lead directly to the conclusion that most of its members think it is.
Rep. Muffy Davis, who injured her back in a skiing accident as a teen and now has limited lung function, was left in tears Jan. 15 when the House voted down a motion to allow her to participate in the session remotely.
Given the last four years, it’s difficult to remember that there have been times when there was genuine joy in American politics. And humor. And grace. Even accomplishment.
Corporate America is singling out the 147 Republican members of the U.S. House and Senate who on Jan. 6 promoted President Donald Trump’s big lie by trying to overturn Joe Biden’s election.
To Idaho’s U.S. senators and representatives:
There can be no healing without accountability. And there can be no accountability without an admission of truth.
WASHINGTON — In January 2001, I was part of an administration that began in the midst of controversy. A presidential election that effectively ended in a tie had been decided by the Supreme Court. A significant portion of the country questioned the validity of this outcome and the legitimacy…
The riot in Washington, D.C., was shocking and appalling. It achieved nothing except to destroy the legacy of President Donald Trump.
Just when the Democrats have President Donald Trump where they want him — a broken president sitting in the White House with a suspended Twitter account and losing traction with his own party by the minute:
After a tumultuous 2020 and chaotic start to 2021, we’re hopeful that lasting, positive change will be made in our communities this year.
Facing a potential threat of extremist violence coupled with the sure threat of COVID-19, Washington state leaders marked the first day of the 2021 Legislature under closed-off conditions they hadn’t experienced before and should want never to repeat.
When it comes to outstanding members of Congress, Idaho’s sprawling 1st District isn’t known for them. During the last half-century, the district has frequently been represented by a collection of non-entities, clowns and downright embarrassments. The sanity of an occasional member such as J…
Along with the hope for a better year than the last one, 2021 has arrived with several new laws in Washington. New standards took effect Jan. 1 governing how much we pay for prescription drugs and how we care for children and even how some of us drive big rigs.
In response to the Lewiston Tribune’s recent article regarding the procurement practices in my office, I would like to provide some context and clarification about the State Department of Education’s contracting process.
The Dec. 17 Lewiston Tribune article by the Associated Press titled “Committee hearing addresses alleged voter fraud” was its typical hate-Donald Trump commentary claiming to be news. The short lead piece on the front page said it all: “unfounded claims, baseless claims, unfounded allegation…
Jan. 6, 2021 will be remembered among the most shameful days in American history.
