This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  Former New York City mayor, ninth-richest person in the world, and candidate for president Michael Bloomberg has been rising in the polls in recent weeks and just recently qualified for his first debate of the primary season.

The Making of Drinking French

A few years ago, after My Paris Kitchen came out, I began thinking about what I’d write about next. Whenever you have a book come out, the most common question is, “What’s your next book?” Sometimes you already have an idea, but other times, it’s nice to sit back and enjoy what you’ve written. I was happy that people took to that book so much, and after a respite, I started thinking about what to write about next. Because I was asked about it so much, I decided that telling the story of my apar...

I stopped with a friend for a glass of wine in this charming café. The exterior. It was a bit chilly outside but I guess if you have to smoke, why not? A sign inside which means the prices bring you in but the quality keeps you there. It was hanging on a coat rack. My glass of white wine being poured. It was nice to have glass to look through and see the architecture outside, not to mention the blue sky.

There’s No Resurgence In American Manufacturing. It’s A Myth.

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. In a towering act of sycophantry, the National Association of Manufacturers announced Friday that it will be giving Ivanka Trump the organization’s first ever Alexander Hamilton Award for “extraordinary support of manufacturing in America.” The organization made the outrageous claim that “no one”  — no one! — has ever “provided singular leadership and shown an unwavering commitment to modern manufacturing in America” l...

Trump: An Aspiring Mob Boss Who Threatened Foes With ‘Friends in Jersey’

How The Trump Administration’s Attempt To Perpetuate The Voter Fraud Failed Miserably

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. The following was adapted from Election Meltdown: Dirty Tricks, Distrust, And The Threat To American Democracy, by Rick Hasen, out today. As the 2020 election approaches, we are seeing intensifying attempts to suppress the vote. There’s an irony in these attempts, which come after four years during which arguments that such laws are needed to combat phantom voter fraud have collapsed under the weight of evidence. Even ...

Mainers Care About Collins’ Impeachment Vote. But Her Reelection Is About More Than That

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  With the impeachment of Donald J. Trump, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine is again in the national spotlight, as she looks like she just might vote to hear witnesses at the Senate trial. That impending Collins vote  became especially crucial this morning, when new allegations against Trump’s involvement in the Ukraine pressure scheme surfaced in the unpublished manuscript of ex-National Security Adviser John Bolton’s n...

U.S. Fuel Rollback Earns Pushback from Scientific Advisory Board

The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) is once again applying pressure on the Trump administration’s proposed fuel economy rollback.

Satire In The US Has A Trump Problem

This article is the result of a collaboration between TPM members and journalism graduate students at NYU. Over the past several months, NYU students from 10 different countries solicited the help of the community in TPM’s member forum, The Hive, to identify stories that could be of interest to TPM readers, but exist outside the range of TPM’s typical coverage areas. During the course of reporting, the students shared their progress with members for feedback and input. The project was intended ...

The 2010s Were The Decade That Bent Democracy To The Breaking Point

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  The decade that began in 2010 witnessed the gravest threats to the integrity of American democracy since the Civil War. It was the age of extreme polarization and political gerrymandering. It saw an unprecedent intervention in an American presidential election by a hostile foreign power and the advent of a dangerously self-serving president. Now it has ended with only the third impeachment of a president by the full U...

Why Media Executives Keep Failing

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  I forget the exact date, but sometime during my time as a student at Ohio University, I stumbled across this 2008 blog post listing gross profit margins of Gannett-owned newspapers and lost my mind. It was 2011 and most of my journalism-major peers were filled with dread over job prospects. Newspapers were shedding staff at a rapid clip and nobody was quite sure what to make of newer digital media outlets like Politic...

Who Runs The Department Of Homeland Security? Thanks To The Trump Administration, It’s Unclear.

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  It should be easy to determine who leads the Department of Homeland Security. But because the Trump administration has repeatedly failed to abide by the advice-and-consent process set out in the Appointments Clause of the Constitution, even Congress isn’t sure. In fact, former acting Secretary of DHS Kevin McAleenan — who announced his resignation on October 11 and left the agency in November — may have been in tha...

Weekend Reads

Thanksgiving is (kinda) just around the corner and you can check out this round-up of Thanksgiving Recipes here on the blog. Rather than getting all stressed out, though, maybe think of making less…and having more fun. As a French friend once told me, “We don’t go out to eat for the food. We go out to be with our friends.” Another friend in Paris told me that when she entertains, she serves only three things, which may not pan out for T-day spreads; I can skip the marshmallow-topped sweet potat...

Why The Koreas Won’t Achieve Peace As Long As Kim Jong Un Is In Power

In a move that was choreographed to a T, Kim Jong Un’s sent his sister, Kim Yo Jong, to attend the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea — it was a masterful PR stroke. She became the rock star of the games, with worldwide med...

Protecting the Military? “Just Junk” Says Bush Court Nominee

On Friday, the American Bar Association hosted a conference in Washington on national security.  Among the speakers was Scott Stucky, General Counsel of the Senate Committee on Armed Services and President Bush’s nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. When the subject of the amendment to the Defense Authorization Bill that protected military families from payday lenders, according to someone in the audience, Stucky dismissed it as “junk.” The Department of Defense had asked...

The Uninsured Class

The New York Times analysis of census data had a quick blip about health insurance: the number of uninsured increased by 1.3 million from 2004 to 2005. People on the lowest economic rung had already been going naked that is, living without health insurance. The new 1.3 million represents a continuing expansion of middle class people who can’t afford health insurance. Newsweek reporter Karen Springen and I had blunt conversation about the economics of health care for the middle class. Perhaps I s...

Debating the Middle

Jason is right to note the discussion at American Prospect about the condition of the middle class. But don’t miss the discussion at the Democratic Strategist either. Some very interesting posts at the intersections of politics and the economy. I don’t think of myself as politically savvy, but I couldn’t resist wading into this debate. My second post goes up Thursday morning. [Author: Jackie Wilhelm]

The Impeachable Offense That Democrats Should Stop Ignoring

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  For the better part of this year, House Democrats have been consumed by a battle over how best to use their newfound power. One side called for impeachment from the start. The other side insisted that Democrats focus on kitchen table issues like health care. But the choice has always been false; the House can and should do both. In addition to the active impeachment inquiry into Trump’s efforts to influence the 2020 ele...

The Debt Divide

Nearly half (48%) of all Americans are worried about debt, says a new survey from Lending Tree. One in five (20%) said they expect to be in debt with credit cards, medical debts and other non-mortgage obligations for the rest of their lives. Meanwhile, Ben Bernake is quoted today as “upbeat” about the American economy. Is this the new steady-state in America? Half of us worried about debt, and one in four seeing no chance of ever getting out of debt? If this is the American experience in the mid...

A Conservative on Credit Cards

Yesterday Professor Charles Fried, the elegant, eridite former Solicitor General of the US and former Supreme Court Massachusetts Supreme Court Justice, sparred with eminent philosopher and law professor Cass Sunstein and Harvard economist Ed Glasser in a faculty forum over “the Nanny State.” The discussion was lively and engaging, but Fried’s remark on credit cards stopped me in my tracks. Fried was aggressive in his defense of unregulated consumer choice. He poo-poo’d the idea of regulating mu...

Edwards Steps Up On Middle Class

Senator Edwards is moving middle class economic issues front and center. It’s time. The numbers are familiar–skyrocketing credit card charges, predatory mortgages, families working hard and sinking deeper in debt each month. What’s new is the aggressiveness of the solutions–and the fact that he is willing to make them a centerpiece in his presidential bid. Will Edwards stand alone on these issues? Or will all the candidates get more aggressive in putting together proposals to rein in the credit ...

One in Ten

The latest numbers are out: One in ten homeowners has no equity in the family home. The data show that about 15% will be below water if prices continue to slide, owing more than their homes are worth. So what’s the plan here? One in ten homeowners could just walk away right now. Indeed, most of them, if they were the rational maximizers so prominently featured in classical economic analysis, would stop paying now, put the money in a savings account, and wait the 90 days or two years or whatever...
