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...

By Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said Tuesday that the U.S. economy appears durable, with steady growth and unemployment near a half-century low, but faces risks from the broadening viral outbreak that began in China.

Since last fall, the Fed has kept its benchma...

CNN fact checks Trump claim about Ivanka during speech

• Analysis: The hidden worst part of Trump's unhinged impeachment victory speech
Tags: News, Cnn, Stories, Trump, Ivanka

Trump is about to give his victory speech.

You can watch it live at NPR, here.ADDED: A very enjoyable speech. Spontaneous. Some rally-style, good-humored nastiness at the beginning — "evil corrupt... dirty cops... it was all bullshit" — but most of it was team building. Early on he said, "You develop friends in battle," and it turned into his thanking and celebrating the individual friends, not just for what they did helping him win his fight, but also for how they won their own way into politics, and what their wonderful future could be...

READ: DC Attorney General Sues Trump Inaugural Committee

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine sued President Trump’s 2017 inauguration committee on Wednesday, accusing it of failing to comply with non-profit regulations by booking a $1 million ballroom at the President’s D.C. hotel. Inaugural committee staff knew that the booking was overpriced, and the ballroom was barely used, the lawsuit alleges. Trump’s inaugural committee brought in a record-setting haul of $106 million, while holding far fewer events than previous inaugurals which raised and spe...

It's one thing to blithely opine "Why America Needs a Royal Family/Yes, this is the conclusion I have drawn from Megxit."

I've seen that proposal a thousand times, and here we are again, this time with Jennifer Weiner in the NYT. But it's quite another matter to figure out who would be the royal family.I'm not interested in reviewing the pro-royalty argument. You know what it is. I'm only interested in the question of how — if we were to restructure America with a royal family akin to Britain's — we would pick the actual hereditary family.I can't find the old post, but I believe I once blogged about who would be ki...

Ivanka Trump’s Appearance at CES Tech Show Draws Criticism

(LAS VEGAS) — The nation’s largest consumer electronics show on Tuesday hosted Ivanka Trump as a keynote speaker — a choice that drew scorn from many women in technology. The annual CES tech gathering in Las Vegas has long taken criticism over diversity issues. In recent years, the show’s organizer, the Consumer Technology Association, has invited more women to speak and sought to curb some of the show’s more sexist aspects, such as scantily clad “booth babes” hired to draw attention of the...

Ivanka Trump, Big Tech Companies Plan Marketing Campaign Targeting Teens' Perceptions of Tech Jobs

On that point, it's worth noting that signed minutes and slides from a Sept. 2019 meeting of the Ivanka...

"When I first came to Washington, I was surprised at how few Democrats had taken their argument for the merit of paid leave to their colleagues across the aisle."

"So it really was starting from the beginning and talking about this policy and framing it in different terms.... We proposed the first ever bipartisan, bicameral plan.... [T]he president has made very clear he thinks that this is critical policy. And now we are working with members on both sides of the aisle to see who has the right policy to move forward and to be able to garner the votes to pass this into law....  I think the option that has been put out there by the Democrats without even op...

I'm reading "The Star Power of Jane Fonda’s Climate-Change Arrests" (The New Yorker):After the 2016 election, Fonda was initially optimistic that Trump could be flattered into taking on the cause of battling climate change. She wanted to invite several “voluptuous” female activists (including the environmentally minded actress Pamela Anderson) to brief Trump on the dangers of relying on fossil fuels. Fonda spoke by phone to Jared Kushner, who told her to speak to Ivanka Trump, who laughed at the...

Meghan McCain: Tulsi Gabbard Has ‘Balls of Steel’ for Voting ‘Present’ on Impeachment

2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard could not bring herself to vote “yea” or “nay” on the two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. For that, Meghan McCain said Thursday morning, the Democratic congresswoman has “balls of steel.” McCain’s comments came, oddly enough, during a discussion on The View about the president’s disparaging remarks about the late Congressman John Dingell. After attacking his widow, Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) for supporting his impeachment despite ...
