    The New York Times’ Hatchet Job On Devin Nunes Is Riddled With Errors

    Jason Zengerle publicly announced his profile of Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., in yesterday’s New York Times Sunday Magazine with the snarky tweet, “My latest for the @NYTmag on Devin Nunes, who’s been propagating, not to mention falling for, conspiracy theories since before the Deep State was even in a gleam in Donald Trump’s eye.”

    It’s an accurate summation of the hit he attempted to place on Nunes, the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). The only problem is the case he attempts to make is riddled with errors and full of embarrassing and deliberate material omissions. READ MORE...

    Michelle Wolf’s Performance Provokes The Kind Of America She Hates

    Michelle Wolf’s feral little performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner triggered a little memory of mine.

    I believe I was in the second grade when an older girl on the playground lured me to play a “game” with her. Okay, I said. I was always up for a new game. She had me sit on the grass across from her. It was in a relatively secluded place, near a vine-covered fence.

    After we got situated, Nedra slapped me across the face. Hard. I was stunned. Then she did it again. And again. She explained that she was giving me my “treatment.” The bell rang to signal the end of recess, and as I leapt up, Nedra warned me that I needed to come back for my treatment the next day.

    3 Revelations From New York Times Reporter’s Book on Hillary Clinton

    New York Times reporter Amy Chozick’s new book on her time covering Hillary Clinton doesn’t show either her employer, The New York Times, or Clinton herself in a particularly flattering light.

    Chozick, a member of the largely female press corps that followed Clinton on a near-daily basis at times, crisscrossing the country with her, reported on Clinton’s 2008 campaign for The Wall Street Journal and her 2016 campaign for The New York Times. And in “Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” Chozick talks about what it was really like. READ MORE...

  • What Trump Can Learn From the Master of the Greatest Deal in American History

    What Trump Can Learn From the Master of the Greatest Deal in American History

    Our current president prides himself on being the master of the deal. The upcoming summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un will certainly put his bargaining skills to the test.

    The stakes couldn’t be higher, since they involve the security of one of the most populous and economically vital regions in the world, and North Korea has shown little regard for agreements in the past.

    If President Donald Trump successfully forges a deal that denuclearizes the Korean peninsula, it will go down as one of the greatest deals in American history. With that said, it’s fair to ask whether history provides any lessons in the art of presidential negotiation. READ MORE...

    Taking Kim Jong-un At His Word Will Give Him Way Too Much Leverage

    On Friday, North and South Korea made history. Or at least that’s what everyone is saying. While the leaders of those two countries did meet at the most recent summit since 2007, and while many impressive, headline-making developments have emerged over the past few days, there are plenty of reasons to be suspicious that North Korea hasn’t fundamentally changed its goals, even if it has had to change its tactics.

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met on Friday in the demilitarized zone that has separated the two Koreas since they signed an armistice in 1953. Their initial meeting and handshake was attended by a glut of fanfare and the scrutiny of hundreds of camera lenses and live TV coverage. Kim and Moon were kicking off a summit whose purpose is to end the spiraling crisis on the Korean peninsula over North Korea’s nuclear weapons. Its secondary purpose, of course, was to act as a warm-up for the meeting between Kim and President Donald Trump, set to take place sometime in May or June. READ MORE...

  • What Life In China Taught Me About Bernie Sanders’ Guaranteed Jobs

    What Life In China Taught Me About Bernie Sanders’ Guaranteed Jobs

    When I was about 14 I overheard a close family friend comment on another woman’s hair. “Such long hair! Quite expensive in terms of shampoo.” The involuntary exclamation illustrates a part of the world I grew up in. Some women really did view their hair from the standpoint of incurred expenses in shampoo, and kept it short as a result.

    My family was better off than that, but we still lived along the U.S. poverty line. We didn’t own a house, car, or TV. My parents rented a three-bedroom apartment in a ramshackle compound, made us kids a big bookshelf out of plywood, and taught us how to type on a used Mac with a 1995 facing-smile logo that spent a lot of time looking at me above progress bars on the screen.

  • Trump Hopes to Do What Past Presidents Couldn’t in North Korea

    Trump Hopes to Do What Past Presidents Couldn’t in North Korea

    President Donald Trump said he has the responsibility to do what his predecessors failed to do—bring peace to a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula.

    Trump talked about numerous issues with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during a joint press conference Friday at the White House a day after the historic meeting between North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

    “I think I have a responsibility,” Trump said. “I think other presidents should have done it. I think the responsibility has fallen on the shoulders of the president of the United States. I think I have a responsibility to see if I can do it.” READ MORE...
