Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over. Representatives from Germany, France, Poland and Russia came to Kyiv to work out a final deal that would put an end to the fighting. The opposition insisted that Yanukovych step down as president and early elections be held. When Yanukovych chose to flee Kyiv instead, the parliament voted to impeach him and set new elections for May 25.

The Nuclear Option
The Democrats in the United States Senate put an end to Republican obstruction last week when they voted 52 to 48 to end the filibuster. Called the nuclear option, the change to Senate rules allows for executive and judicial nominees to be approved with a simple majority vote. The minority party can no longer filibuster these nominees and require a majority of 60 votes.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
The Legacy of Citizens United and the IRS
Recently acting IRS commissioner Lerner resigned from office after the discovery that it appears the Cincinnati office had been targeting certain groups applying for 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) status. The news erupted into scandal in the wake of a week of apparent scandals piling on top of President Obama. At first the problem looked as if the IRS was targeting only tea party groups for audits, while no other social welfare group received the same scrutiny. Was this really the case?
The Defense of Marriage Act and the Supreme Court

Windsor, the Defense of Marriage Act. Both laws being challenged prohibit same sex couples from getting married.
