The irony of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s “America First” policy is that it could end the budding new Cold War that has been developing between the West and Russia and China. His non-ideological, deal-making approach, which doesn’t challenge how the Russians and Chinese govern themselves, promises to lessen tensions that have been getting dangerously out of control.

06Nov

Some folks who identify as progressive — and therefore oppose Clinton — still think it is OK to vote for Jill Stein in so-called safe states. I urge you to think again. No matter who wins on Tuesday, the only hope to advance a progressive agenda is to build a unified, integrated progressive movement at the local, state and national levels

In his booking photograph, Adrian Harold Pounders wore a top that read “DontMethWithMe.org.”  The web address he proudly promoted on his chest ironically links to an anti-meth drive that warns Texans about the dangers of the highly addictive drug.   Pounders, 47, was detained when cops raided his home in Crockett on Sunday

It is one of the central political puzzles of our time: Parts of the country that depend on the safety-net programs supported by Democrats are increasingly voting for Republicans who favor shredding that net. In his successful bid for the Senate in 2010, the libertarian Rand Paul railed against “intergenerational welfare” and said that “the culture of dependency on government destroys people’s spirits,” yet racked up winning margins in eastern Kentucky, a former Democratic stronghold that is heavily dependent on public benefits

WASHINGTON — Republican officials here in the capital had dismissed Matt Bevin’s chances of winning the governor’s race in Kentucky. They thought he was just too weird and wild, even in a state that has become deep red in presidential elections. A Louisville businessman and tea party leader, Bevin (who was originally from New Hampshire) had had the reckless temerity to run — and lose — a race for the GOP Senate nomination last year against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the founder and leader of the modern Republican Party in the Bluegrass State.

A loosely affiliated group of armed protestors organized anti-Muslim hate rallies across the country on Friday and Saturday. But instead of dividing the communities they targeted, news about the rallies strengthened bonds between interfaith allies and inspired numerous acts of community service around the U.S. Grassroots organizers behind the so-called “Global Rally For Humanity” used  Facebook  to encourage “fellow patriots” to protest Islam outside their local mosques and Muslim community centers. On some pages, the protests were billed as “open carry” events and participants were encouraged to come armed with guns.  Although up to 35 Facebook pages were created in support of the rally, according to the anti-bigotry group Center for New Community , the majority of these were deactivated in the days leading up to Friday. And in an extraordinary show of solidarity, interfaith networks in neighborhoods across America and online stepped up to show their support for their Muslim friends.

Representatives from all major faith groups and congregations were there to show support, along with students from private, public and Catholic schools, Ozair Shariff, a board of directors member, told The Huffington Post. “I think it’s very apparent that whatever the intended message the perpetrator had, it certainly backfired,” Shariff said.

Hillary Clinton fired back at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday after he accused her of playing the “gender card” during her presidential campaign.  “Wow,” Clinton told HuffPost during a Facebook question-and-answer session . “If that’s what he said, Mitch McConnell really doesn’t get it.  There is a gender card being played in this campaign. It’s played every time Republicans vote against giving women equal pay, deny families access to affordable child care or family le ave, refuse to let women make decisions about their health or have access to free contraception.” McConnell criticized Clinton at an event at the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, Monday morning, quipping that “the gender card alone isn’t enough,”  according to Theo Keith, a Louisville-based political reporter.

Redacción | MEDIOTIEMPO Ciudad de México, martes 1 de Octubre del 2013 El silbante estará acompañado por un compatriota y un canadiense en Costa Rica  No será un árbitro de gran bagaje quien dirija el último partido de México en el Hexagonal. La CONCACAF anunció este martes que será el silbante de Surinam, Enrico John Winjgaarde, quien pite el encuentro entre Costa Rica y el Tricolor el próximo 15 de octubre, cuando los verdes podrán definir por completo su suerte de cara al Mundial de Brasil 2014. Más allá de que el resultado del juego entre México y Panamá el día 11 sea el que más deberá abrir el panorama, el último y definitivo en el Hexagonal será el que se dispute en San José, donde al árbitro caribeño lo acompañarán su compatriota Ramón Ricardo Louisville como asistente 1 y el canadiense Phillippe Briere como segundo abanderado.
