The Return of Gringophobia

Mon, 29 May 2017 11:53:00 GMT2017-05-29T11:53:00Z

When Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto opened gasoline prices to market forces this January, the resulting 20-percent hike—both a step toward the entry of foreign gas stations and a top-up for the treasury’s depleted coffers—prompted weeks of outrage. La Jornada, the country’s leading left-wing daily, reported on the protests one day by splashing its front page with a woman setting fire to Old Glory. The message: The gas hike is the fault of the gringos.

Farewell, Jenny Lind

Mon, 29 May 2017 04:01:00 GMT2017-05-29T04:01:00Z

On this day in 1852, the Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind sailed home to Europe having concluded a widely celebrated American tour organized by the showman P.T. Barnum. You may use the comment thread on this page to remember America’s bout of “Lind mania,” or to pursue a freewheeling, inherently off-topic discussion.

JFK’s Russian Conspiracy

Sat, 27 May 2017 21:24:19 GMT2017-05-27T21:24:19Z

On a day in early December, one of Moscow’s agents in the United States, working undercover as a journalist for Izvestia, reported a private meeting with the president-elect’s “closest adviser.” The adviser, who met privately with the Russian spy, was frank and hopeful about a significant improvement in relations from the previous administration. He “stressed that was not merely expressing his personal opinion but the position of the future president.” The two men met alone and there was no American record made of the encounter.

John F. Kennedy would have been 100 this Monday.

Will He or Won’t He?

Fri, 26 May 2017 19:19:54 GMT2017-05-26T19:19:54Z

Two D.C. stories collided on Thursday when the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a 10–3 decision in International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump, affirming virtually all of a Maryland district judge’s nationwide injunction against Donald Trump’s second try at an executive order limiting travel and immigration from six majority-Muslim countries. One story is about how a largely horrified judicial branch is the last, best check against Trump’s truth-challenged mayhem. The other is whether Justice Anthony Kennedy is poised to announce his impending retirement. These two stories are now inextricably linked, because there is almost no way to read the 206 pages’ worth of opinions in IRAP as anything other than a ransom note from the federal judiciary directed solely at Justice Kennedy.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy attends a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House on April 10.
