Over the past two weeks, Donald Trump has named the CEO of an “alt-right” website his campaign chief, “softened” and then “hardened” his immigration policy until he pissed off Latino activists and his nativist base, reached out to African-American voters by suggesting...More »]]>Eric Levitzdonald trumpearly and oftengarbage fires?<![CDATA[CEO of Price-Gouging Drug Company Could Have Picked a Better Binder to Pose Beside]]>, 26 Aug 2016 18:49:56 GMT

Under the leadership of CEO Heather Bresch, Mylan has increased the wholesale price of EpiPens — which children rely on to survive severe allergic reactions — by 400 percent since 2007.

Donald Trump is campaigning for the presidency as the “law and order” candidate. He has suggested that African-American-led movements for criminal-justice reform are waging “a war on police” that must be stopped.

In 1989, Trump took out a full-page advertisement in the New York Times,...More »]]>Eric Levitzdonald trumpearly and oftendeath is the only truththe crime billhillary clinton<![CDATA[Media False Equivalence Is Trump’s Best Friend in the Debate Over Racism]]>, 26 Aug 2016 17:50:05 GMT

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton offered a reasonably detailed indictment of Donald Trump’s racially offensive utterances and associations. You don’t have to agree with every characterization she made, or with the underlying innuendo that Trump is himself a racist, to acknowledge she made a decent prosecutor’s prima facie case.

Something that is largely missing from this year’s presidential campaign that was a reasonably big deal in 2012 is the “religious liberty” issue — the demand that people of faith be insulated from compliance with non-discrimination laws that they claim violate their consciences.

As the 2012 general election heated up,...More »]]>Ed Kilgorepoliticsrepublicansreligious liberty<![CDATA[Democrats Are Taking Full Advantage of Our ‘Broken Campaign-Finance System’]]>, 26 Aug 2016 16:25:11 GMT

The Democratic Party is committed to bringing “an end to our broken campaign-finance system.” But until then, Team Blue is gonna smuggle as much big-donor money through the system’s gaping loopholes as it possibly can.

In July, the Democratic National Committee raised $32 million, a haul it credited...More »]]>Eric Levitzcampaign financeearly and oftenhillary clintondncdonors<![CDATA[This Magnificent Barcelona Cathedral Has Been Under Construction for 134 Years]]>, 26 Aug 2016 15:45:07 GMT

The Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí’s beloved (but long incomplete) church in Barcelona, now has 2026 to look forward to as a potential date for completion. That’s ten years from now, and a full 100 years after the famed architect’s death at age 73. The most impressive part?

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton delivered a speech tying together Donald Trump’s long history of racism, from his early days excluding African-American tenants from his family’s housing in New York to what Paul Ryan called “textbook racist” comments that a Mexican-American was unfit to judge whether Trump had committed fraud....More »]]>Jonathan Chaitthe national interestpoliticsdonald trumpcampaign 2016hillary clinton<![CDATA[Report: Trump Campaign Chief Fraudulently Registered to Vote in Florida]]>, 26 Aug 2016 13:56:37 GMT

Donald Trump warned us, but we didn’t believe him. For weeks now, the GOP nominee has been calling on America to wake up to the reality that November’s election will be plagued by voter fraud. But like the prisoners in Plato’s cave greeting their would-be liberator, those who...More »]]>Eric Levitzdonald trumpearly and oftenvoter fraudriggedsteve bannon<![CDATA[Why the University of Chicago’s Anti–‘Safe Space’ Letter Is Important]]>, 26 Aug 2016 13:29:32 GMT

Good morning and welcome to Fresh Intelligence, our roundup of the stories, ideas, and memes you’ll be talking about today. In this edition, Trump’s immigration stance gets even more confusing, Uber loses money, and Batman get drunk. Here’s the rundown for Friday, August 26.

Donald Trump — the guy who’s spent the past 14 months talking about Mexican rapists and a “deportation force” — just found out what Donald Trump — the candidate who wants Hispanics to vote for him — has been saying about immigration reform, and boy is he mad!

Stephen Bannon, the Breitbart News executive and new Donald Trump campaign CEO, was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence, battery, and dissuading a witness following an incident with his then-wife in 1996.

From the very beginning of the 2016 general election, it has been obvious that Hillary Clinton’s campaign would go after Donald Trump with a claw hammer. He presented too ripe a target to ignore even momentarily, and given Republican misgivings about him it made obvious sense to exploit Trump’s weaknesses...More »]]>Ed Kilgoredonald trumppoliticshillary clintonalt-right<![CDATA[Hillary Clinton Assures Moderate Republicans That They Are Better Than Their Racist Nominee]]>, 25 Aug 2016 21:34:55 GMT

Donald Trump has a problem with racism. Not a personal problem — all evidence suggests he’s got nothing against judging people on the basis of their skin color — but, rather, a political one.

When you think of the great political coalitions of the past that were dominant for long stretches of time, you’d probably include the Democratic “New Deal” coalition, the Republican “Gilded Age” majority, and maybe the antebellum Democratic and post–Civil War Republican winning streaks. More recently, you might consider the Republican-dominated...More »]]>Ed Kilgorepoliticsdemocratshillary clinton<![CDATA[A Majority of Republicans Are Cool With ‘Amnesty’]]>, 25 Aug 2016 16:31:44 GMT

Despite besting 17 rivals in the Republican primary — and attracting large crowds in states like Mississippi — Donald Trump seems to be on his way to a landslide defeat in November’s election.
