From the Publisher

Profiling each president on the merits of their policies and on the core principles of peace, prosperity, and liberty, this ranking system takes a distinctly new approach. Historians and scholars have long tended to respect the war heroes and men who have succeeded in expanding the power of the executive office. However, this new examination cuts through longstanding bias and political rhetoric to offer a new nonpartisan system of ranking that is based purely on strength of policies and adherence to the Founding Father’s guidelines for limited government. These rankings will surprise most and enlighten even acknowledged experts on the presidency.

BY NEARLY ALL OBJECTIVE SIGNS, THE 2016 election should have been a cakewalk for a mainstream candidate. The economy had mostly recovered from the 2008–2009 recession. Unemployment was low, and despite the occasional small bump, so was violent crime. The Middle East may have been in bloody chaos, but few U.S. soldiers were dying there, as they so recently had by the hundreds in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet it was the candidates of anger who captured the public imagination—first Bernie Sanders with his rebellion against globalization and free trade, and then, conclusively, Donald Trump, who added

Lawsuit Alleges Seattle Mayor Ed Murray Raped Teen 30 Years Ago

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is being sued by a man who claims Murray "raped and molested him" three decades ago, when the man was 15 years old. The mayor held a brief news conference Friday to deny the allegations. "To be on the receiving end of such untrue allegations is very painful for me.

The Seattle Times has investigated this claim in depth, along with the stories of two other men who also say Murray abused them whe
