Organizations continue to cancel events at Mar-a-Lago  

Donald Trump will have to rent more golf carts to the Secret Service, because still more charities are canceling events at his, ugh, "Florida White House." In the last five days — since President Trump said there were "fine people" among those marching in a violence-plagued "Unite the Right" demonstration in Charlottesville — the president's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida has been deserted by 14 charities that use its ballrooms for fundraisers. Mar-a-Lago already had a lo...

The heart of Sao Paolo is sick.

But over the past several decades, this once-vibrant neighborhood has been consumed by Brazil's crack epidemic. Ragged, sickly bodies laze on the streets amid garbage, makeshift shelters, and shopping carts filled with soiled belongings. People light up openly, day or ...

Political Class Unites in Attempt to Keep Broken Status Quo  

Daniel Lee, FederalistAs far back as October 2015, candidate Donald Trump billed himself as duct tape for a broken nation. “I’m going to unify. This country is totally divided,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper. It turns out he was right about being a unifier, at least in Washington. Our fractured capital is experiencing a new flowering of bipartisanship. Everyone inside the beltway, at least those getting the press coverage, seems to oppose him.

The Secret Service is out of money, cannot pay hundreds of agents  

The combination of President Trump's frequent travel, numerous properties, and large family is gobbling up the Secret Service's funds at an unprecedented rate. USA Today revealed Monday that roughly a third of America's Secret Service agents have "already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year," forcing Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles to turn to Congress for additional funding. Alles is pushing to raise the salary

The Radicalization of White Americans  

German Lopez, VoxThere were many horrible sights and sounds at the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests over the weekend, from Nazi and Ku Klux Klan iconography to chants of “Jews will not replace us” and the Nazi slogan “blood and soil.” But perhaps the most horrifying of all came after the protests were technically over, when a 20-year-old Nazi sympathizer sped his car into a crowd of counterprotesters. In just a few seconds, he killed a woman and injured at least 19 ot

Welfare's customer service problem  

Usually when America's welfare programs are debated, we think in terms of spending. And that debate matters. Compared to most advanced Western nations, spending on the U.S. welfare state is quite stingy. But it's not the only debate we should be having. Every welfare program — from Medicaid to food stamps to TANF and more — is also a mess of personal interactions, which have an effect on low-income Americans all their own. And on this front as well, we could be doing a whole lot better. Tak...

Almost every state will get a glimpse of today's rare total solar eclipse  

On Monday, from 10:16 a.m. in Oregon to 2:48 p.m. in South Carolina, a total solar eclipse will move in a 67-mile-wide swath across parts of 14 states, with the rest of the continental United States witnessing only a partial eclipse. The "totality" — when the moon completely covers the sun — will last only about 2-3 minutes in each location, and it is very important that people don't look directly at the sun during any part of the eclipse without special solar-filter glasses, as staring at ...

Democrats Could Win 50 House Seats. Here's How  

Sarlin & Seitz-Wald, NBC News If Democrats are planning to ride an anti-Trump wave to a takeover of the House in 2018, they can’t just rely on seats where voters resisted Donald Trump in 2016. They also face the major task of winning back those rural and blue-collar whites who defected to the president. That path runs through places like Dubuque County, Iowa, where a 28-year-old Democratic state representative, Abby Finkenauer, is running for Congress against a GOP incumbent, Rep. Rod Blu

American voters are politically flexible. Why aren't our parties?  

In the United States, we have had only two electorally viable political parties for more than a century and a half now. One is run by center-right economic moderates who pretend to have convictions about the so-called "social issues" — abortion, civil rights, homosexuality, sex-neutral bathrooms, contraception, and so on. The other is the GOP. We are so used to hearing about the problem of divided government that we forget about the degree to which our two parties agree on a huge number of im...

Stephen Bannon reportedly wants to take down Jared Kushner  

With Stephen Bannon now out at the White House, a war is reportedly brewing between President Trump's former chief strategist and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. Vanity Fair's The Hive reported Sunday that after Bannon was fired Friday, he told a friend, "We're going to war." Kushner is reportedly his biggest enemy: The chaotic, war-torn West Wing of the past six months will be prologue, but the coming struggles will be as personal as they are ideological, waged not with l

Trump tweets 'thoughts & prayers' for USS John S. McCain crew, upgrading earlier response  

About two hours after a Liberian-flagged oil tanker, Alnic MC, collided with the U.S. Navy destroyer USS John S. McCain at 5:24 p.m U.S. East Coast time in the Strait of Malacca off Singapore, President Trump tweeted that he was on his way back to Washington "after working hard" during his 17-day vacation at his New Jersey golf resort and other locations. The Navy, which announced the accident on Twitter a few minutes after Trump's tweet, said that 10 sailors are missing and five injured, and a

Trump "is surrounded by four white nothings and Mike Pence — so, let's make that five white nothings," he said. "But the truly depressing thing about Bannon's departure is just how utterly unsatisfying it actually i

Trump's science pick argued same-sex marriage would lead to legalizing pedophilia  

If Donald Trump picks someone to be part of his administration and they accept, there's now 100 percent chance that they're completely and utterly unfit to do whatever job they've been tapped for. Trump's nomination of Sam Clovis to be the chief scientist at the Department of Agriculture is no exception to that rule. From 2011 through 2014, Clovis, who has no scientific credentials, repeatedly argued against the legalization of same-sex marriage in his capacity as a conservative radio host, pund

Nuclear waste "is a serious health hazard, and America has a lot of it," John Oliver said on Sunday's Last Week Tonight. "And you may live closer to nuclear waste than you think." For decades, America has known it needs a safe place to store this nuclear waste — one expert in 1990 compared America's nuclear situation to a house built without a toilet — and that was Oliver's focus on Sunday: "Why do we not have a nuclear toilet?" On one level, this is easy to understand, he said, bec

"They'll call it murder," Ratcliff wrote in an op-ed for CNN, published Sunday. "They may call it a hate crime, but then struggle to call it terrorism.
