Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former Reagan speechwriter and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan called President Donald Trump’s world one that was filled with metaphorical “bugs and spiders and worms.” Noonan said, “It seems to me the news of Friday, the filings of Friday, to me the big headline is not the payoffs to women with whom individual 1 was alleged to have had relationships, it’s much more that Trump world we see again, it is demonstrated before us again, Trump world does not do well with sunlight. It’s like there’s a series of rocks —” Host Chuck Todd said, “They’d be great vampires is what you’re saying.” Noonan continued, “No. I’m saying there’s a bunch of rocks or slates in Trump world. You pick one up, and you’re always seeing bugs and spiders and worms. Do you know what I mean? There’s always something. The serious part is Russia. It lo...

Samsung's Galaxy 10 is coming and while we already know it's going to be feature-packed like no other Samsung phone before, we didn't have any idea what it looks like... until now. Two of most-respected phone leakers Evan Blass (@evleaks) and Ice Universe (@Universeice) have had a busy past few days posting images of what they claim are the Galaxy S10.  The Galaxy S10 won't be a foldable phone, but if the leaks are genuine, Samsung's new phones will definitely turn heads. SEE ALSO: Samsung's Galaxy S10 sounds like it's gonna be more of everything. That could be a problem.

The Trump-Russia scandal will likely end up being in many respects a bribery and money laundering and possibly even RICO scandal, with features of conspiracy to commit election fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States. Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Donald Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election marches onward. Trump and his alleged co-conspirators, defenders and allies appear to be encircled.This article wasoriginally published at SalonBeginning last week, there have been a series of events which could spell doom for Donald Trump. His attorney, personal fixer and consigliere Michael Cohen has agreed to fully cooperate with Mueller's investigation.

As an employee at the Federal Reserve in 2011, three years after the dissolution of Lehman Brothers, Carmen Segarra witnessed the results of this deregulation firsthand Of the myriad policy decisions that have brought us to our current precipice, from the signing of the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to the invasion of Iraq and the gerrymandering of House districts across the country, few have proven as consequential as the demise of Glass-Steagall. Signed into law as the U.S.A. Banking Act of 1933, the legislation had been crucial to safeguarding the financial industry in the wake of the Great Depression. But with its repeal in 1999, the barriers separating commercial and investment banking collapsed, creating the preconditions for an economic crisis from whose shadow we have yet to emerge.Carmen Segarra might have predicted as much. As an employee at the Federal Reserve in 2011, three years after the dissolution of Lehman Brothers, she witnessed the results of...

Republicans apparently have not learned much from what happened in the Alabama Senate race. The Wall Street Journal's new interview with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is, for the most part, full of the usual bland dodges and preemptive scapegoating of Democrats for any potential setback to his party.But one particular comment of his, when discussing possible Senate election opportunities for Republicans in 2020, was a lot more eye-opening."If you look at a map of America, there's a lot of red," he said, noting one obvious 2020 pickup opportunity for the GOP: Democratic Sen. Doug Jones's Alabama seat.Mr. McConnell called Mr. Jones' victory over Republican Roy Moore "the Alabama mistake in 2017"—when Mr. Moore, in a special election, faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.McConnell believes it was a "mistake" for voters in Alabama not to choose Roy Moore, who was credibly accused of molesting multiple teenage girls, over Doug Jones, a prosecutor who locke...

Here's why Wall Street and some economists suddenly worried about a recession. The U.S. economy is growing at the fastest pace in five years, American companies are earning record profits and unemployment is at the lowest level in almost half a century.So why are Wall Street and some economists suddenly worried about a recession?Financial markets in particular have been signaling that trouble is brewing. The Standard & Poor’s 500, which tracks the biggest U.S. companies, has plunged as much as 6 percent since Dec. 4 because of worries about trade and slowing global growth. And a key bond metric that has presaged every recession since 1960 is warning another may be on the way.As an economist who teaches and conducts research in international trade and finance, I see three credible concerns driving the worries.Trouble in trade landOne major issue is the ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China.The U.S. has imposed tariffs on about US$250 billion o...

Does Beto O'Rourke have what it takes to win the presidency in 2020? Anxious Democrats had barely recovered from their post-midterm election-night hangovers before pundits began breathlessly pontificating over the potential field of 2020 presidential candidates. Democrat Beto O’Rourke lost his Texas Senate race to Republican Ted Cruz, but that didn’t stop multipleoutlets from pondering whether he could run. He enjoys a national profile, a positive message, even punk rock roots, and lost his race by a mere three points, but some progressives aren’t convinced he’s the one to beat Donald Trump, should the president run in 2020.Washington Post columnist Elizabeth Bruenig is one of them.She writes on Thursday that despite her being from Texas, appreciating O’Rourke’s appeal and having “hoped as much as anyone for Cruz’s defeat,” America doesn’t need another Democrat in the Obama mold. Instead, she argues, “I think the times both call for and allow for a...
