Thousands expected to march for immigration reform Wednesday

04/10/13 08:00AM

Thousands of advocates are expected to descend on the nation's capital Wednesday afternoon to press for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship. The demonstration, dubbed the "Time is Now" rally by its organizers, is the brainchild of the immigrant community group Casa de Maryland and the labor union SEIU 32BJ, which represents service workers such as janitors, security guards, and food service employees. The two host organizations are members of a national pro-reform coalition called the Alliance for Citizenship. read more

04/09/13 12:30PM

At least 14 senators are now standing in the way of bringing comprehensive gun control legislation to a vote. Of those 14 senators, nearly all of them hail from deep red states, and nearly all of them possess the top rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA). Collectively, they represent the legislative face of opposition to gun control, even in the face of 91% support among Americans for universal background checks. read more

Margaret Thatcher's complicated legacy

04/09/13 12:05PM

Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died Monday at 87 and there is an understandable instinct to be charitable upon someone's death. But the death of public figures is an incredibly important occasion to wrestle with their legacy. And the wrong message can be massively destructive. The perception of someone's legacy, has consequences, because it establishes what the consensus position is.

#CLICK3: Cher Lives

04/09/13 10:46AM

The All In with Chris Hayes team puts out a daily call to the Twitter and Facebook communities for the “awesomest things” they encountered on the Internet. 1. Derrick Rose, the #1 point guard for Chris's favorite team, the Chicago Bulls, dunked in warm-ups for the first time since he tore his ACL. This, apparently, is a very big deal for Bulls fans. Rah, Rah.   Thanks to All In with Chris Twitter fan Jack Murphy for putting us on to this one.

The other party of Thatcher: The Democrats and New Labour

04/09/13 08:00AM

When Margaret Thatcher was asked what her greatest achievement as Prime Minister had been, she gave a surprising answer. “Tony Blair and New Labour," she said. "We forced our opponents to change their minds.” That may sound like a bold claim, but in fact the Iron Lady was being modest. She did not simply change minds in the Labour Party; she also helped to transform America's Democratic Party. While it is the Republicans who have self-consciously assumed the mantle of Thatcherism, the Democrats have also been irrevocably marked by her legacy. read more

Why the Republican Party is the party of Thatcher

04/08/13 02:49PM

During the 2008 Republican primary, the struggling Fred Thompson campaign went abroad. In order to "support his foreign policy credentials," the laconic TV star and former Senator was to deliver a speech at a London think tank. But more importantly, he was also going to pay his respects to a conservative icon, and bask in the light of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. read more
