  • Despite Trump, Demotic Protest Politics Doesn't Always Fail

    2016 has been a big year for protest politics -- not just in the United States, what with Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump getting over 40 percent of primary votes, but also all over Europe and Latin America, where voters have been rejecting the advice of their nations' political, financial and media establishments. Two prime examples were in referendums. On June 23, 52 percent of British voters rejected the advice of Prime Minister David Cameron and other parties' leaders and chose to leave rather than remain in the European Union. On Oct. 2, 50.2 percent of voters in Colombia voted...

The former CIA operative is little-known elsewhere in the country and is only on the ballot in 11 states. But an apparent voter backlash in Mormon-heavy Utah against the two major-party candidates has fueled...

    Tom Hanks Sees US Election Warning in Thriller 'Inferno' By JILL LAWLESS, Oct 21, 2016 Embedded within the manic action of "Inferno," the latest big-screen adaptation of a Dan Brown thriller, is a warning about the dangers of seeking simple solutions to complex problems. Star Tom Hanks says it's a theme with echoes in the current U.S. presidential race. "Inferno" sets Hank's polymathic professor Robert Langdon on the trail of a deadly plague concocted by billionaire scientist Bertrand Zobrist (Ben Foster) out of a sort of warped humanitarianism: He plans to end war, poverty and famine by wiping out half...

The America we grew up in during the sixties and seventies is gone. Guess it depends on your perspective. The following predictions are not in any particular order. 1. Hilary Clinton will win in an electoral landslide, although the voter turn-out will be low. Credit for the victory will go in large part to the turn out of the black vote and minorities mobilized by the Democratic machine. Trump’s gaffs will keep many...

    Donald Trump has virtually stopped trying to win this election by any conventional metric and is instead stacking logs of grievance on the funeral pyre with the great anticipation of setting it ablaze if current polls turn out to be predictive. There is something calamitous in the air that surrounds the campaign, a hostile fatalism that bespeaks a man convinced that the end is near and aiming his anger at all within reach.

    Throughout his campaign, Donald J. Trump has displayed a particular type of hyper masculinity — the man who is proud not to apologize and to have never changed a diaper; who views “loser” as the ultimate insult; who bonds with other men by objectifying women. It’s especially striking because today’s schools and workplaces try to value something different: empathy, impulse control and collaboration. For three decades, jobs that require these social skills have grown much more than others, researchers have found. They say one reason that boys are more likely than girls to get in trouble in school and are...

The accusations came just days after the Republican candidate denied at Sunday’s presidential debate that he had ever groped anyone inappropriately. Two women told The New York Times that Trump abused them. “He was like an octopus,” Jessica Leeds said. “His hands were everywhere.”

    Utah has been solidly Republican at the presidential level for the past 48 years. But the leaked tape of Donald Trump bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent may have been the last straw for socially conservative voters in this heavily Mormon state. [Snip] Now, Trump's support in Utah could be collapsing, according to a poll conducted after the Trump tape was released. It shows both Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton drawing just 26 percent support.

He wants to make sure to keep the firewall there, so he’s devoting his energy to doing that.” Trump laid into Ryan in a series of tweets on Tuesday morning, calling the Speaker “weak and...

At least two children had noticeable bruising as a result of playing "smack for a snack." Police cited one of the employees for assault.

    You've heard and read by now lots of spin and speculation about who won and where the polls are going to move after Monday's presidential debate. We'll know the answers to these questions soon. The more important question for the long run is how each of these candidates would govern. The debate provides no certain answers to that question, but it does offer some useful clues. Hillary Clinton started off with a laundry list of incremental economic programs -- none of which would promote economic growth. Some have already been legislated (equal pay for women, 1963), others are tilted to...

    Immigration only made a brief cameo in Monday night’s debate, but Donald Trump managed to once again falsely connect immigrants to crime.In response to a question on race relations in America, Trump said:“We have gangs roaming the street. And in many cases, they’re illegally here, illegal immigrants. And they have guns. And they shoot people. And we have to be very strong. And we have to be very vigilant.”No matter how researchers slice the data, though, the numbers show that immigrants commit fewer crimes than native-born Americans. But that’s not good enough for Trump’s followers. They firmly believe immigrants make...

This year feels very different. With two prolonged primary seasons, two deeply polarizing nominees, and two conventions that were moved up by a month (from late August to late July), voters have been unable to escape the shadow cast by a bizarre and historic race for the White House. And with the GOP nominee trailing badly in nearly every national...

    Washington has stepped in to tackle America’s cheese mountain with the Federal government buying 11 million pounds of the surplus. It has cost the American taxpayer $20 million (Ł15 million), the US Department of Agriculture said. The cheese will be distributed to food banks across the country. There are several reasons for the cheese mountain in the US. Farmers had boosted production when they were getting record prices. But thanks to the strength of the dollar, demand has slumped, creating a huge cheese surplus which has reached a 30-year high. Cheese has been a source of tension between the United...
