Wed, 17 Jan 2018 20:31:47 +0000

[Quote:] A Christian university has turned down $3 million in funding from a religious group which came on condition of shutting down an LGBT students group.

Bannon Is Subpoenaed in Mueller’s Russia Investigation

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 21:19:52 +0000

[Quote:] Prosecutors generally prefer to interview witnesses before a grand jury when they believe they have information that the witnesses do not know or when they think they might catch the witnesses in a lie. It is much easier for a witness to stop the questioning or sidestep questions in an interview than during grand […]

Fake news

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 21:15:41 +0000

[Quote:] Four in 10 [or 42 percent of] Republicans consider accurate news stories that cast a politician or political group in a negative light to always be “fake news.” [The corresponding figure for Democrats is 17 percent.] It’s what worries me most about journalists these days – they seem to think “Fake news” is “factually […]

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 17:02:00 +0000

Trump Puts the Purpose of His Presidency Into Words

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 18:34:26 +0000

[Quote:] It would be useless to point out that African immigrants are, on average, more highly educated and more likely to be gainfully employed than native-born Americans, or that immigrants in general are less likely to commit crimes. Trump’s is not a logic that employs facts, it is one that employs tribe. It is the […]

[Quote:] Brown admits that, when he was 14, “It wounds you.

I was […]

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 12:09:28 +0000

Faust on the Potomac

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 19:07:05 +0000

[Quote:] More specifically, Trump’s very awfulness means that if he falls, the whole party will fall with him. Republicans could conceivably distance themselves from a president who turned out to be a bad manager, or even one who turned out to have engaged in small-time corruption. But when the corruption is big time, and it’s […]

I’ve Studied the Trump-Fox Feedback Loop for Months. It’s Crazier Than You Think.

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 14:30:45 +0000

[Quote:] Everyone has a theory about Trump’s hyper-aggressive early morning tweetstorms. Some think they are a deliberate ploy the president uses to distract the press from his administration’s potential weaknesses, or to frame the public debate to his liking. Others warn his rapid shifts from one topic to another indicate mental instability. But my many […]
