If the media needs to acknowledge Trump's "changed" demeanor, it must also give Hillary equal time to express her convictions. Only then will there be an opportunity for the clearest comparison.
If the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank's current estimate of GDP growth at a robust 3.7 percent rate in the current quarter--which the Reserve Board's interest-rate setting Open Market Committee itself looks to for the best available sense of where GDP will come out--proves to be reasonably accurate (as it did in the past few quarters), President Obama will have achieved a remarkable but little noticed milestone in economic management.
The week began with a speech Donald Trump read off a TelePrompTer. And in a stunning development -- are you sitting down? -- he then did not stomp all over his message by saying monumentally stupid things for the rest of the week. No, really!
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for my transhumanist presidential campaign. I'm excited that transhumanism -- the social movement that aims to use radical science and technology to improve the human species -- continues to be represented in politics in a major way.
You're amazing Simone, and the world is JUST getting a glimpse of how great you are. Continue to make progress, and enjoy your life. America will turn it's back on you. And when it does, do exactly what you've always done...win.
Having worked with trauma survivors--including victims of rape, domestic assault, human trafficking, and chronic childhood sexual abuse for over 25 years--I believe the reasons most victims of sexual harassment often remain silent, or come forward belatedly, are the same reasons most victims of sexual abuse rarely tell.
Shrum and Christie largely agree on Trump's trajectory -- almost no chance to win POTUS because "gaffes" that didn't sink him among only GOP voters are now revealing him as temperamentally unfit to be president. Will Fox consider him as a post-election Host? Will his name be mentioned at 2020 convention? (Yes and no).
Just tell the entire truth, Hillary, admit when things were not always done in the best fashion and you will find that, in particular alongside Trump, you will come out smelling like a rose.
As we approach the presidential election in November, we would all do well to pause and ask ourselves in what ways we might be imprinting, confirming our biases and minimizing anything that counters them.
Trump's campaign and his media allies are increasingly embracing the dead-end view of right-wing politics where violence is justified to right a perceived wrong -- where violent political action might need to be taken by private citizens to curb a dangerously powerful federal government.
As the debate over workplace sexual harassment continues to unfold, it will be illuminating to watch how the sons and daughters in these two powerful families address the issue.
Say what you will about Donald Trump being ridiculous or foolish, but stupid he is not and wily and canny he is.
Is this what Fox News means by the "liberal bias" and "political correctness" of the media -- that they do not countenance sexual harassment in their workplace?
Well, he's really done it this time, hasn't he?
Then he met Roger Ailes and installed him as head of what would become America's most successful cable news channel, Fox News Channel, also known as Fox News. And so the formula of conservatism and sex, pioneered on a newspaper in Britain, came to television and the rest, as they say, is history.
Donald Trump, facing harsh criticism over his recent attacks on the Gold Star Khan family and what many believe is a call for Hillary Clinton's assa...
