The plot that failed: how Venezuela's 'uprising' fizzled

When the coup was hurriedly launched a day early, defections from the regime failed to materialise, Maduro remained in power and the US government looked like it had badly miscalculated A demonstrator stands near a fire during clashes with security forces in Caracas on Wednesday.

Butina Sentenced To 18 Months For Conspiracy To Act As A Foreign Agent

Russian national Maria Butina was sentenced to 18 months by a federal judge in D.C. for conspiracy to act as foreign agent. She will get credit for the nine months she has been incarcerated after her arrest. “This case is not simply about failing to notify the attorney general,” U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan said at the sentencing hearing. It is because Butina did not register as a foreign agent, Chuktan said, that made her conduct so “dangerous” and a “threat” to “our democratic institut...

Church History Made Before Our Eyes: United Methodists Make History, Affirm Biblical Standards of Sexuality

Church history spans two millennia—2,000 years of recorded experience. The weight of that history is heavy and humbling. Seen in that light, it takes a really big event to rank as historical, even as it happens. Such an event happened within the last seven days. In St. Louis Missouri, the United Methodist Church met for a special General Conference to answer unavoidable questions central to the sexual revolution and the LGBTQ agenda. The United Methodist Church stands as the last mainline Protes...

Is Zimbabwe the Next Venezuela?

This weekend’s news that protesters were gunned down at Venezuela’s border while pro-regime thugs burned trucks filled with food and medicine demonstrated just how vicious Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship is. But those who wonder how long he can hold on to power while his nation slowly starves might want to visit Zimbabwe, as I did last month, for a sobering lesson.Robert Mugabe became the president of Zimbabwe in April 1980, back when Jimmy Carter was still president. Within two years he had deplo...

How We Talk About Racism in America is Wrong

For Vox, Jane Coaston writes about why Republicans took 15 years to act on House member Steve King’s racism. I found her point about how racism has become an insult to be wielded or avoided (depending on your perspective) rather than a useful descriptive term of behavior or views really interesting. The way we talk about race and racism in the United States is wrong. In short, we think of “racist” as an insult rather than as an adjective. And we have narrowed down the concept of racism to an al...

Christmas Comet 46P Is Making the Season Bright (and Green) for Scientists

On Dec. 16, Comet 46P/Wirtanen made its closest approach to Earth in more than 20 years, back when digital cameras and laser astronomy were in their infancy. At the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii, a group of scientists led by Boncho Bonev (a physicist at American University) were giddy with anticipation. "Comet Wirtanen is only 30 lunar distances from our planet, meaning that it is about 30 times the distance to the moon.
