  • Why ‘white trash’ Americans are flocking to Donald Trump

    When J.D. Vance was a boy, his beloved grandmother “Mamaw” told her boozer husband that if he ever came home drunk again, she’d kill him. When he did, and passed out on the couch, she got a gasoline can, poured fuel all over him and dropped a lit match on his chest. He survived with mild burns, and later quit drinking. One time when J.D.’s mom took exception to something the boy said in the car, she hit the accelerator and sped up to 100 miles per hour, screaming that she was going to kill them both. When he jumped...

    Hillary Clinton is on a mission to prove that any little girl can grow up to be president. So long as she marries one first. Last week’s Democratic convention in Philadelphia displayed American liberalism in all its hyper-wealthy, incestuous glory. Chelsea Clinton was showcased as an heir apparent; Bill Clinton – the future First Gentleman – played with the balloons that fell from the ceiling. “And didn’t Michelle Obama give a good speech?” the Democrats asked themselves. Well, perhaps she’d like to be president someday too? Everybody gets a turn in liberal land. Everybody except rebel socialist Bernie Sanders....

    Although the Chamber may present itself as the champion of small businesses, it essentially functions as a money laundry for the world’s largest multi-national corporations, who want to keep their political activity at arm’s length. The Chamber’s $85 million lobbying budget in 2015 dwarfs all others in D.C., and that doesn’t include the over $35 million it spent on political ads in both the 2012 and 2014 election cycles. That money has almost always gone directly into supporting Republicans and trying to unseat Democrats. In an interview with The Intercept after her remarks Thursday night, Lim said she could not...

In a CNN/ORC poll published Monday, Hillary Clinton has a 51%-to-36% lead among voters who are college graduates, while Trump has a 51%-to-39% lead among those who aren’t. Put a different way, the college-grad divide is even starker than the gender divide, where men go 50%-to-38% for Trump and women are 47%-to-43% for Clinton.

  • Russia cyber attack: Large hack 'hits government'

    A "professional" cyber attack has hit Russian government bodies, the country's intelligence service says. A "cyber-spying virus" was found in the networks of about 20 organisations, the Federal Security Service (FSB) said. The report comes as Russia stands accused over data breaches involving the Democratic Party in the US. The Russian government has denied involvement and has denounced the "poisonous anti-Russian" rhetoric coming out of Washington. The FSB did not say who it believed was responsible for hacking Russian networks, but said the latest hack resembled "much-spoken-about" cyber-spying, without elaborating.

People think of elections in the fall.” Many of the candidates running for local office are unopposed. The highest-profile local race...

    Donald J. Trump, confronting a daunting electoral map and a significant financial disadvantage, is preparing to fall back from an expansive national campaign and concentrate the bulk of his time and money on just three or four states that his campaign believes he must sweep in order to win the presidency. Even as Mr. Trump has ticked up in national polls in recent weeks, senior Republicans say his path to the 270 Electoral College votes needed for election has remained narrow — and may have grown even more precarious. It now looks exceedingly difficult for him to assemble even the...

But here's the real deal. When our politicians and diplomats negotiate trade deals, we lose because they don't know a good deal from a bad one. For instance, when President Bill Clinton signed NAFTA in 1993, he believed it would "create 200,000 jobs in this country by 1995 alone." Instead, the U.S. has lost over 700,000 jobs, according to the Economic Policy Institute, while...

The 2016 election is trending toward Donald Trump. Mr. Trump is surging as well in swing states, where he is now slightly ahead, within the margin of error, or...

"I later heard that they invited 15 Icelandic girls to go out with them for dinner and drinks at a restaurant and paid each one 15 thousand Icelandic krónur...
