Malcolm: Trump sets ambitious fall campaign schedule to help Republicans–and himself

“In the remaining 75 days until ballots are counted, Trump will invest at least 40 of them in campaigning for Republicans in both House and Senate races. He will spend additional time on fundraising for candidates and the party. And you may have noticed, this president is quite comfortable with spur-of-the-moment decisions.

Only 18 Democrats voted in support of H.Res. 990.”

“Proponents of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) want to create a constitutional Frankenstein by breathing life into its corpse some 36 years after its ratification was defeated, in large part thanks to Phyllis Schlafly and her Eagle Forum. The ERA Congress sent to the states in 1972 stated: ‘Equality of rights under law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.’ This simplistic language hid a radical progressive social agenda.”
