Trump Appoints a 'Long-time Friend' of Xi Jinping’s to Be the U.S. Ambassador to China

December 7, 2016 Donald Trump gives China a lot of grief on Twitter and at his rallies. But he also just gave the Middle Kingdom a lot of face. Earlier today, Trump named Terry Branstad, the Republican governor of Iowa, as the next US ambassador to China. The announcement makes China the first...

Harvard Research Suggests That an Entire Global Generation Has Lost Faith in Democracy

November 30, 2016 People everywhere are down on democracy. Especially young people. In fact, so rampant is democratic indifference and disengagement among millennials that a shocking share of them are open to trying something new—like, say, government by military coup. That’s according to research by Yascha Mounk, a Harvard University researcher, and Roberto...

The FBI Confirms That Clinton’s Emails Are Totally Fine

November 6, 2016 The FBI has concluded for the second time in four months that Hillary Clinton’s alleged mishandling of her emails should not be criminally prosecuted. James Comey, the bureau’s embattled director, informed Congress via letter today (Nov. 6) that “based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we...

Trump’s Plans Would Increase America’s Debt By Trillions of Dollars

September 22, 2016 It turns out Donald Trump the presidential candidate loves debt as much as Trump the real estate developer. If enacted, Trump’s fiscal policies would pile on $5.3 trillion to the US government debt by 2026, calculates the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget in a new report. That’s more than...

The Correct Criticism of Obama’s Vacation Habits is That He Should Take More, Not Less

August 23, 2016 What’s more befitting of the American president—being a chronic workaholic, or taking a couple weeks off to hit the links with Larry David and read The Girl on the Train? That’s the contrast Donald Trump drew when criticizing president Barack Obama for declining to disrupt his vacation to visit flood-ravaged...

The Battle Between Clinton and Trump is a Modern Morality Play

August 1, 2016 It’s a cliche of US elections that candidates appeal to more extreme flanks of their bases to win their parties’ primaries and then hastily sand down the edges of their positions to please the center’s undecided voters. Yet, like so much else in 2016, the received wisdom has been flung...

North Carolina’s LGBT Law Could Cost the State Almost $5 Billion a Year

May 12, 2016 Discrimination can get expensive, it turns out. The sticker price for North Carolina’s HB2—a hastily made law that bans transgender people from using public bathrooms consistent with their gender identity, and bans cities from passing anti-discrimination ordinances protecting LGBT people—is pretty shocking. The law will cost North Carolina nearly $5...

Here's What a Trump Presidency Would Actually Look Like

February 12, 2016 If it wasn’t clear before, it is now: Donald J. Trump doesn’t just have fans, he has voters—and there are a lot of them. In the wake of his commanding victory in the New Hampshire primary, it’s time to take Trump a little more seriously than when he was just...

Trump and Sanders Are Doing Well Because They Tap Into the Same Anxious Feelings

February 9, 2016 Last summer, as America fawned over Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the media dismissed them as unelectable—reasonable-seeming bets given Sanders’s socialism and Trump’s chronic offense-giving. But after both took second place in the Iowa caucuses, Sanders and Trump are now on track to win the New Hampshire primaries for their...

Signs Point to China in US Research Facility Hack

October 16, 2015 Tech companies, healthcare giants, defense contractors, top universities, the US government—you name it, Chinese cyber-spies have probably hacked it.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution sustained a “sophisticated, targeted attack” that looks to...
