That right-wing “militia” that’s taken over the wildlife refuge in Oregon — done in the name of giving the land back to the people — is now getting a rebuke from a very qualified source: The local Native American tribe, who are actually able to argue that they’ve lost all their rights to the same land.

At a meeting Wednesday, Burns Paiute Tribe official Jarvis Kennedy had a simple message for these posers: “They just need to get the hell out of here. Sorry.”

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Just over year before her untimely death on Friday, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared as a guest lecturer for the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, AR with National Public Radio correspondent Nina Totenberg. The crowd that signed up to see "Notorious RBG" live was so large that the event had to be moved to a major sports arena – and they weren't disappointed by the wide-ranging, hour-long interview.

Witty, charming, brilliant, principled, Ginsburg represented the very best of American liberalism and modern feminism. Listen to her and you'll feel even more deeply what former President Bill Clinton says in his poignant introduction: "Only one of us in this room appointed her…but all of us hope that she will stay on that court forever."
