    The little-known group at the center of the Turkey-Russia crisis Updated by Jennifer Williams on November 24, 2015, 2:50 p.m. ET @jenn_ruth jennifer@vox.com Jennifer R. Williams: How do you think this incident will affect Turkish-Russian relations? Henri Barkey: Until recently, the Turks and the Russians had succeeded in compartmentalizing their differences over Syria. Because they're on opposite sides: Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, the Turks have tried to do everything they could to overthrow Assad, and Russia has done everything they could to keep Assad in power. But it didn't affect the relationship between [Turkish President Recep...

    Liberals sometimes say that law enforcement’s approach to the Mafia offers a model for how to deal with jihadists, even though the latter tend not to limit their demands to protection money. This past Sunday, Egberto Willies of Daily Kos claimed that if terrorist attacks were “treated as they should be, like organized crime, it would neuter ISIS. After all…the group is no more powerful than a large band of thugs with weapons.” But crimefighting methods weren’t the main concern of Willies’s piece. Rather, it was his belief that “neocons” wish to exploit fear of terrorism in order to start a war which...

    Donald Trump's interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week (above) is a great distillation of why covering the Republican frontrunner is proving so difficult for mainstream press outlets. On the one hand, he demands coverage. He's leading the race everywhere: nationally, in Iowa, in New Hampshire, in South Carolina. And with the exception of a brief surge for Ben Carson that's quickly dissipating, Trump has been leading consistently for more than three months. So outlets like ABC and shows like This Week would, naturally, like the longstanding GOP frontrunner to appear on their programs from time to time. It...

    Last night's off-year elections produced a number of noteworthy outcomes, none larger than Republican Matt Bevin's upset victory in Kentucky's gubernatorial race. Bevin ran as a hard-charging outsider conservative, warts and all. Public polls gave his opponent, Democrat Jack Conway, a modest but stable lead throughout the race's home stretch, averaging out to a three-point Conway advantage in a three-way contest. They were off by double digits. Bevin won handily:DailyKos tweet at link ...

    In an attempt to dismiss the Benghazi Select Committee as a partisan witch hunt against Hillary Clinton, an ex-committee staffer has accused the panel of being obsessed with a political agenda. Bradley F. Podliska, an investigator and Air Force Reserves officer, told The New York Times that the Benghazi committee was becoming “primarily focused” on Clinton. His comments come on the heels of Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s controversial statement on "Hannity," when he said the Benghazi committee was directly responsible for sinking Clinton’s poll numbers. Chairman Trey Gowdy (S-SC), while accepting McCarthy's apology, insisted his words can't "fix the damage" done to the panel.Gowdy, again...

    When Russia started bombing in Syria last week, it said it was targeting ISIS a claim it's stuck to pretty consistently in the past week. But this map of Russian airstrikes in Syria so far, put together by the Levantine Group, tells a very different story. The Levantine Group's analysts used a proprietary network of sources, cross-checked with open-source media and information released by the Russian Ministry of Defense, to determine the locations hit by Russian planes. This map shows those strikes overlaid on territory controlled by Bashar al-Assad's regime, by anti-Assad rebels, by ISIS, and by Kurdish forces....

    The spectacular rise of Donald Trump as leading presidential candidate should at last force Republicans in Washington to face the chronic ineffectiveness of their party: rank and file Republicans are turning to the Donald because he, unlike the party establishment, seems energetic, articulate, and determined to get something done. They have so long despaired of a party leadership that is inarticulate, somnolent, and inept that they are not deterred by the fact that Trump is dangerously unpredictable. The problem is not an insufficiently conservative party, as some conservatives think; a two-party system will always have a broad spectrum of viewpoints...

    The fallacy that President Obama is a Muslim has tripped up many a politician, said NPRs Jessica Taylor hopefully on Friday, and on Thursday night, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump was its latest victim. Trumps presumed faux pas was his failure to correct a questioner who asserted that Barack Obama was a Muslim. Taylors real error as a reporter, like that of all her mainstream colleagues, was to dismiss the questioners assertion as a fallacy without providing any evidence to the contrary. Strange but true, reporters pride themselves on knowing nothing about Obamas roots. Last month, for instance, Catherine Thompson...

He wrote that, "I have long suspected - with good evidence - that NPR news does little more than shill for the same interest that dominate our politics and mainstream media, albeit with a high-brow veneer. I think the final proof has arrived today." ~snip

    Think Progress, a website operated by the liberal Center for American Progress, failed to vet a phony story which claimed that Minnesota U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann proposed Americanization labor camps for Central American unaccompanied children. Im calling on all of us, Obama and Congress and everyone, to chip in and build special new facilitiesAmericanization facilities, if you will, Bachmann said, according to Think Progress, which has since corrected its embarrassing flub. [] Think Progress published the erroneous story on Sunday but corrected it and issued an apology after another liberal website, the Raw Story, pointed out the massive hoax. []...

    This years edition of Netroots Nation (the supposed liberal answer to CPAC) kicked off this week, in case you hadnt heard. (And judging by the massive lack of media coverage, you might not have.) To be honest, I have not idea what was going on at the various panels and speeches, aside from the apparently well received socialist stemwinder from Elizabeth Warren. But there was, it seems, one get together which was a real hoot, whether intentionally or not. It was a seminar called (wait for it) Only the Jester Speaks the Truth and it was all about the...

    DETROIT Sen. Elizabeth Warren wowed a friendly crowd of influential liberal activists Friday in Detroit, pledging to fight against Republicans and the sleazy lobbyists she says have rigged the rules in Washington and harmed the middle class. Warren took the stage in a crowded ballroom to calls of Run, Liz, run by activists waving Elizabeth Warren for President signs and did little to disappoint. Speaking before the nations largest gathering of liberal activists, she railed against giant corporations, secret trade deals and Republicans she said were too cozy with big business. Conservatives, she charged, are guided by an internal...
  • Vice President Joe Biden to speak at Netroots Nation 2014 in Detroit, Michigan

    Organizers of Netroots Nation, Americas largest annual gathering of progressive activists, took the wraps off of a major and welcome surprise this afternoon with the announcement that Vice President Joe Biden would be coming to Detroit to speak to the convention during a special Thursday afternoon general session. It will also be Bidens first appearance at Netroots Nation. He was invited to participate in the Presidential Leadership Forum held in Netroots Nations second year, in Chicago (back then, the convention was known as YearlyKos), but declined to attend due to his desire to participate in another event. The other contenders...

    In one of the clearest statements by the White House that they are completely engulfed in their own worldview, the State Department on Sunday cited both Daily Kos and Think Progress while defending Secretary of State John Kerry's offensive apartheid statement. This previous Friday, Mr. Kerry stated that Israel risked becoming an "apartheid state" if they did not give in to Palestinian demands during peach talks between the two groups. The State Department quickly went on defense to protect the asinine statements. Jen Psaki, spokeswoman for the State Department, tweeted out two articles in which other people had warned that...

    BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI, March 26, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) A pro-life group's involvement in the Michigan race for the U.S. Senate is bringing abortion into what had previously been a race focused on the economy, the low popularity of President Obama in the state, and the Affordable Care Act. On a website highlighting the pro-abortion record of Michigan Rep. Gary Peters, D-MI, the expected party nominee for U.S. Senate, Michigan Right to Life (MRTL) said that Peters wants to make sure abortion is accessible and cheap for his daughters. The statement is based on what Peters posted on Facebook on January...

    Demographic changes are inevitably driving Texas and Arizona into purple and eventually blue territory. The growth of the Latino population is poised to overwhelm predominantly conservative white voters in both states, absent a genuine and successful rebranding by the Republican Party. But another red state will reach that status sooner: Georgia. After Mitt Romneys 2-point victory in North Carolina during the 2012 race, Georgia was the second closest red state at the presidential level. President Obama lost it by 7.8 points in 2012, after losing it by just over 5 points in 2008. In raw vote totals, that...

    If you thought that the Left's arguments in favor of wealth-redistribution were factless and short-sighted, you haven't read "The One Rich Guy," a new comic published on the Daily Kos today. It has everything a liberal could want: a stereotypical, evil rich man with a top hat and monocle, people making fun of capitalism, and no logical explanation as to why any of this might happen and no solutions. And, of course, it relies heavily on the fallacy that if someone is rich, why, he must be stealing from everyone else! Gird your loins. The comic is called "The Modern...

    You have to give the Kossacks over at the Daily Kos an A for effort. They try, oh how they try, to convince each other that Obamacare is a success despite all evidence to the contrary. The result of their effort is pure unadulterated comedy as you can see in the optimistic title of their thread, "Obamacare enrollments double in last three weeks." Of course the source of their optimism comes from the pretension that Medicaid enrollments count as ObamaCare enrollments and the looky loos who have yet to make an actual payment also count as part of the total....
