    Former CIA chief John Brennan thinks Donald Trump is being easily fooled by Vladimir Putin. Brennan and James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, were responding to Trump’s remarks in Asia where he said he believed Putin when the Russian leader stated he had not tried to interfere in the 2016 election in the US. […] Brennan utterly dismissed Trump’s assessment. “I don’t know why the ambiguity about this,” Brennan said. “Putin is committed to undermining our system, our democracy and our whole process. And to try paint it in any other way is, I think, astounding, and, in fact,...

    FULL TITLE: ‘Frankly disgusting’: Trump lashes out at press, threatens NBC over news report he calls ‘pure fiction’ President Trump on Wednesday threatened NBC over a news report he called "pure fiction," and he lashed out at the news media, declaring that it is "frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write." “People should look into it.... The press should speak more honestly," Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. "I’ve seen tremendously dishonest press. It’s not even a question of distortion.” The president was reacting to a report...

    YouTube videos of police beatings on American streets. A widely circulated internet hoax about Muslim men in Michigan collecting welfare for multiple wives. A local news story about two veterans brutally mugged on a freezing winter night. All of these were recorded, posted or written by Americans. Yet all ended up becoming grist for a network of Facebook pages linked to a shadowy Russian company that has carried out propaganda campaigns for the Kremlin, and which is now believed to be at the center of a far-reaching Russian program to influence the 2016 presidential election. A New York Times examination...

    The New York Times ^ | October 10, 2017 | The Editorial Board
    The Trump administration formally proposed on Tuesday to roll back yet another of President Barack Obama’s efforts to position the United States as a global leader in the fight against climate change. The move, though widely anticipated, was deeply disheartening. All this is infuriating on several levels. It repeated the same false narrative that congressional Republicans have been peddling for years and that Mr. Trump’s minions are peddling now — that environmental regulations are job killers, that restraining greenhouse gas emissions will damage the economy, that the way forward lies in digging more coal and punching more holes in the...

    It’s no secret that Hollywood has not been inclusive to anyone outside of the cisgendered, straight, white description. Thankfully, many consumer have made strides to change this, giving exposure to people of color and LGBT directors, producers, writers, artists and musicians. Yet nonbinary and transgender people are still being left out. ... Hollywood has a history of white-washing and cis-washing movies and media.

    Contrary to the furious spin from Hillary Clinton’s adversaries in the media and Republican Party, FBI Director James Comey did not undercut Hillary’s truthfulness on her State Department emails. In fact, his statement and testimony affirm that Hillary has been honest about the email issue from day one. Here are the facts, not the spin. “We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.” — James Comey On various occasions over the past fifteen months, Hillary has said that she did not send or receive emails containing classified information or any material marked as classified.

  • Amid immigration setbacks, one Trump strategy seems to be working: Fear

    Washington Post ^ | April 30, 2017
    In many ways, President Trump’s attempts to implement his hard-line immigration policies have not gone very well in his first three months. His travel ban aimed at some Muslim-majority countries has been blocked by the courts, his U.S.-Mexico border wall has gone nowhere in Congress, and he has retreated, at least for now, on his vow to target illegal immigrants brought here as children. But one strategy that seems to be working well is fear. The number of migrants, legal and illegal, crossing into the United States has dropped markedly since Trump took office, while recent declines in the number...

    An investigation by The Daily Beast about the New Hampshire state representative who was secretly behind The Red Pill (“the web’s most popular online destination for pickup artistry and men’s rights activists”) got me thinking about how desperate and pathetic these men are. The Red Pill (the term comes from The Matrix) teaches “sexual strategy,” according to the article, including tips on “how to practice ‘negging,’ a game tactic involving a backhanded compliment calculated to undermine confidence and make a woman more vulnerable to advances.”

    The reality TV breakout hit of the season — White House Family Feud, starring Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon — is far from over. After the media frenzy of the last two weeks, Bannon’s been cut down to size, and removed from the National Security Council. Still, he remains a dangerous figure. Bannon reportedly works 18-hour days behind the scenes to promote a far-right, extremist, white nationalist agenda. He is still officially Trump’s “chief strategic adviser,” backed by insiders like Attorney General Jeff Sessions, mega-donors like Rebekah Mercer, and many alt-right leaders (who have made personal and political...

    During the 2016 presidential campaign, many observers wondered exactly what motivated voters most: Was it income? Authoritarianism? Racial attitudes? Let the analyses begin. Last week, the widely respected 2016 American National Election Study was released, sending political scientists into a flurry of data modeling and chart making. The ANES has been conducted since 1948, at first through in-person surveys, and now also online, with about 1,200 nationally representative respondents answering some questions for about 80 minutes. This incredibly rich, publicly funded data source allows us to put elections into historical perspective, examining how much each factor affected the vote in...

    A historian of conservatism looks back at how he and his peers failed to anticipate the rise of the president. --- Until Nov. 8, 2016, historians of American politics shared a rough consensus about the rise of modern American conservatism. It told a respectable tale. By the end of World War II, the story goes, conservatives had become a scattered and obscure remnant, vanquished by the New Deal and the apparent reality that, as the critic Lionel Trilling wrote in 1950, liberalism was “not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition.” Year Zero was 1955, when William F....

    Unfit for duty: McMaster and Gorka It is unfortunate and disquieting that this denial and willful ignorance continues in the Trump administration.

President Trump continues to speak about “radical Islamic terrorism” while hiring people who remain in Obamoid fantasyland. This must be clarified.“Unfit for Duty,” by John Guandolo, Understanding the Threat, February 26, 2017: The new National Security Advisor – Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond McMaster – and the Counter-Terrorism advisor to the President of the United States – Sebastian Gorka – both...

    (CNN)Arguing that Americans still subscribe to his vision of progressive change, President Barack Obama asserted in an interview recently he could have succeeded in this year's election if he was eligible to run. "I am confident in this vision because I'm confident that if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could've mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it," Obama told his former senior adviser David Axelrod in an interview for the "The Axe Files" podcast, produced by the University of Chicago Institute of Politics and CNN.
