Pinkerton — Ronald Reagan, Working Class Hero: New Book Speaks Loudly to Donald Trump’s America

In his new book, “The Working Class Republican: Ronald Reagan and the Return of Blue-Collar Conservatism,” author Henry Olsen argues that Republicans today are getting the Reagan record wrong.

SCOTUSblog: Cal Raisin Farmers Had a Good Day at the U.S. Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court held oral arguments on April 22 regarding the constitutionality of a federal law that requires raisin farmers to transfer a portion of any raisin crop surplus to the federal government at a severe discount, or pay a fine.

But the farmers call the law an “illegal taking” under the Fifth Amendment–and they appeared to have a very good day in Court, according to the SCOTUSblog.
