OPINION: Biden Will Make America Lead Again

Truth be told, I am a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, small-government, strong-defense and a national-anthem-standing conservative. But, I also believe that black lives matter, that the Dreamers deserve a path to citizenship, that diversity and inclusion are essential to our national success, that education is the great equalizer, that climate change is real and that the First Amendment is the cornerstone of our democracy. Most important, I believe that America must lead in the world with courage, conviction and a sense of honor and humility. I voted for Joe Biden.” – William McRaven is a retired Navy admiral and was commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command, 2011-14.

He faces deportation and COVID-19 while his wife battles the virus as an ICU nurse

She said she has witnessed the tributes local communities have made to honor her and other health care workers leading the charge against the novel coronavirus, but she doesn’t want more parades, fly-overs or signs. She wants the U.S. government to release her husband, who has no criminal record and is COVID positive according to the family, from immigration detention and allow him to stay in the U.S. with their children.

Lindsey Graham’s challenger, Jaime Harrison, has put S.C. back in play for Democrats

Harrison, 44, who is Black and a former state party chair, congressional aide and lawyer, was initially considered a long shot — South Carolina hasn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate in 22 years. But he quickly has turned the state, which voted for Trump by more than 14 points in 2016 and re-elected Graham, who is 65, by a slightly bigger margin in 2014, into a question mark in 2020.
