Mail-In Voting Isn’t New In America; It Goes Back to the Civil War

Let’s say you go home for the holidays. Anything’s possible, who knows. It’s a wild world. Let’s say you get there and someone starts laying on you that trip about how Q Continuum said mail-in voting was orchestrated by satanic cables from Anarchist HQ.

A senior Trump administration official on Wednesday rolled out some new after-the-fact justifications for the firing of Steve Linick, the former State Department inspector general who was investigating an emergency arms sale to Saudi Arabia at the time of his dismissal. Brian Bulatao, the department’s undersecretary for management and a witness before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday, told The Washington Post in May that concern had grown over Linick because of a “pattern of u...

Console Options Without Disc Drives Could Be GameStop's Final Death Knell

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: The latest quarterly earnings report from GameStop doesn't show much sign of a turnaround for the long-troubled game retailer. Sales were down 26.7 percent year over year for the April through June quarter. Even accounting for permanent store closures and COVID-related reduced operating hours, so-called comparable "same-store" sales were still down 12.7 percent year over year. GameStop's already depressed stock is down nearly 8 percent on th...

Watch Bob Dylan Perform “Only A Pawn In Their Game,” His Damning Song About the Murder of Medgar Evers, at the 1963 March on Washington

Trauma is repetition, and the United States seems to inflict and suffer from the same deep wounds, repeatedly, unable to stop, like one of the ancient Biblical curses of which Bob Dylan was so fond. The Dylan of the early 1960s adopted the voice of a prophet, in various registers, to tell stories of judgment and generational curses, symbolic and historical, that have beset the country from its beginnings. The verses of “Blowin’ in the Wind,” from 1963’s The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, enact ...

Break It Up [?]. Richard Kreitner and American Secessionism

“To give the victory to the right, not bloody bullets, but peaceful ballots only, are necessary.”  Thus wrote Abraham Lincoln in notes that he used to prepare his notable speeches.  One can, of course, question the empirical validity of his assertion; that it was necessary, in fact, to expend 750,000 lives in order to procure victory for the righteous cause of ending chattel slavery in the United States.  The ballots that elected Lincoln as president were not remotely sufficient. But Lincol...

Monday round-up

August is here and the Supreme Court is well into its summer recess, but the court has been anything but quiet. Since July 9, when the court handed down its final opinions in argued cases for the 2019-20 term, the justices have continued to issue a string of high-profile rulings in response to emergency requests in ongoing litigation. Most recently, as Amy Howe reports for SCOTUSblog (in a story first published at Howe on the Court), the court on Friday afternoon allowed the construction of Pres...

9 Civil War Battles Every Man Should Know

Undoubtedly, the Civil War was the most consequential event in American history. The fate of the fledgling nation — geographically, culturally, existentially — hung in the balance between the years 1861 and 1865. Despite its significance, the average American doesn’t possess a very expansive understanding of the conflict. Most of us know a few names — Grant, Lee, Sherman, Jackson; we know Lincoln gave an important speech at Gettysburg; and we know who won the war. But our grasp of everything el...

Woodrow Wilson Was Even Worse Than You Think

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. Princeton University’s decision this weekend to strike the name of its former president — and ours — from its public policy school for his “racist thinking and policies” was long overdue. Woodrow Wilson was in wide company in being a white supremacist at the turn of the 20th century, but he stands apart in having overseen the triumph of this ideology at home and abroad. Son of the Confederacy’s leading cleric, apologist ...
