Only as good as your name? You Beto believe it! 

When it comes to evaluating people we don’t know much about, typically the first thing we judge them by is their name. Fair or not, somebody’s name causes us to make certain assumptions about their age, gender, where they come from or even what their religion might be — as there generally aren’t too many Millie’s under the age of 80, women named Bob, or Mormons named Muhammad. The cues in a name can lead us to positive reactions, or make us skeptical and suspicious. This is human nature, and no ...

Trump’s Stonewall Strategy

We have every reason to believe that Donald Trump is the most corrupt American president since at least Warren Harding and perhaps ever. The fact that his adult sons continue to manage his business while serving as informal White House advisors is itself a major scandal. A big reason for wanting the Democrats to win back the House of Representatives in 2018 was the promise that they would do the work of oversight that the congressional GOP had avoided. But now that congressional oversight is her...

Trump Lays Down Cover Fire Before Release Of Mueller Report

President Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked senior Justice Department officials and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an apparent attempt to undermine the credibility of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who made that call because then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from matters related to Russia and election interference. “I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of ...

Bernie Sanders hires Beto O'Rourke critic as top aide in 2020 race

Sanders’ campaign said it is bringing in David Sirota, whose work has appeared in The Guardian and Newsweek, among other outlets, as a senior adviser and speechwriter. The move could stoke tensions within the Democratic field since Sirota has previously targeted O'Rourke, the former U.S. congressman from Texas who entered the presidential race last week, and other rivals. Sirota on Twitter and in published articles has accused O’Rourke of siding with President Donald Trump and Republicans whil...

Report: WH Expects Opportunity To Review Mueller Report, Assert Executive Privilege

White House lawyers expect an opportunity to review special counsel Robert Mueller’s report before the attorney general submits it to Congress, CNN reported Tuesday, citing multiple unnamed sources familiar with the matter.

CUSMA/USMCA: The Poison Pills Revisited – a Scorecard

On November 30th, 2018, 16 months after the start of negotiations, the leaders of Canada, Mexico and the United States signed the Canada United States-Mexico-Agreement (“CUSMA”) or the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (“USMCA”)[1].

Is Trump really about to attack Venezuela?

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the last of the US diplomats out of Venezuela, saying their presence was a “constraint” on US policy toward the country. The wording seemed intended to convey the idea that the US is about to launch military action to place a Washington-backed, self-appointed politician to the presidency. Was it just bluster, designed to intimidate? Or is the Trump Administration really about to invade another country that has neither attacked nor threatened the U...

If last week saw Paul Manafort get off easy in a Virginia courtroom, this week saw the former Trump campaign chairman’s legal problems multiply. DC District Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Manafort to another seven years in prison, though he’ll be allowed to serve his sentence for conspiracy-related charges concurrently with his Virginia sentence.
