WASHINGTON — The most intriguing politician in the Republican Party is an uncharismatic governor who’s trying to make the GOP’s culture war appealing to suburban mothers. Ron DeSantis, the 43-year-old governor of Florida, has been on a tear. Originally a tea party-style fiscal conservative, he’s embraced a series of hard-edged positions that have boosted him into second place in early — OK, way-too-early — polls for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. (First place is still occupied by former President Donald Trump.) “He’s taken on the left more aggressively than any U.S. governor in modern history,” Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham enthused last month when she devoted an entire hour of her prime-time program to DeSantis. Politics Essential Politics: Conspiracy theories and fear of immigrants — a toxic mix Conspiracy-minded Americans provide powerful support for some pernicious ideas.

This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 4 At some point, if the moral outrage subsides (it shouldn’t) and the eye-popping payouts fade into the background, this will become mostly about golf. The players. The actual competition. And that doesn’t shape up as especially appetizing, either. The LIV Golf Invitational Series makes its United States debut Thursday outside Portland, Ore. Three weeks ago, when the inaugural event was held near London, Charl Schwartzel held off Hennie du Plessis to win. Boy, that was riveting. Oh, wait, you don’t remember? Greg Norman and his rogue tour obviously can’t claim the ethical high ground. Not when its funding comes from Saudi Arabia, widely known for rampant human-rights abuses. Not when this looks, feels and smells like a blatant attempt at “sportswashing.” Norman’s bold, distasteful venture also can’t claim any sort of golf high ground. Not when its highest-profile player … [Read more...] about LIV Golf comes to U.S., but it’s not compelling sports theater on any level

Pet News , Patch Staff Posted Reply If you’re looking to add a fuzzy ball of love and affection to your household, look no further than these Royal Oak area animal shelters for a pet up for adoption.

17 Community Corner The news comes just one day after Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer urged President Joe Biden to work with Congress on passing the proposal. Dylan Siwicki , Patch Staff Posted | Updated Replies MICHIGAN — President Joe Biden proposed a three-month federal gas tax holiday Wednesday that would dent historically high gas prices in Michigan by 18.4 cents per gallon, providing some immediate relief at the pumps. The news comes just one day after Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer urged President Joe Biden on Tuesday to work with Congress in an effort to temporarily pause the federal gas tax. Nationally, Americans were paying an average of $4.96 a gallon for gas Wednesday, according to AAA. In Michigan, the average price was $5.13 a gallon Wednesday. The move could be more psychological than effective in an economy battered by the highest inflation in 40 years , saving motorists a couple of … [Read more...] about Biden’s Federal Gas Tax Holiday: Would It Help Or Hurt Michigan?
