The move "would be reckless and stupid." Concerns are mounting after President Donald Trump confirmed on Saturday that he will withdraw from a Cold War-era nuclear arms control treaty with Russia following reports that National Security Adviser John Bolton had been pushing the plan behind closed doors despite warnings from experts that ditching the agreement "would be reckless and stupid."The Guardian had reported Friday that Bolton and an ally in the White House have been working to convince members of the administration to support the United States withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF) on the grounds that Russia is violating it. Nuclear arms control experts and others rapidly responded with alarm. Many agreed that Russia's alleged violation "merits a strong response" but noted a withdrawal could alienate European allies and raise the chances of armed conflict.The president's comments on Saturday spurred more alarm, with Dar...

Guantanamo set the stage for the Kavanaugh hearings. Amid the emotional hubbub over the predictable confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, there has been a largely overlooked casualty: the American judiciary. It’s not the end result alone — his addition to the highest bench in the land where he will sit for life — that promises to damage the country, but the unprofessional, procedurally irresponsible way his circus-like hearings were held that dealt a blow to the possibilities for justice in America, a blow from which it may prove hard to recover.Senator Susan Collins acknowledged the damage the hearings wrought, even if she misunderstood the cause. Delivering her massively disappointing decision to vote yes on Kavanaugh, Collins reflected on what she saw as the passion that overrode the presumption of innocence and expressed “worry” that such behavior would lead to “a lack of public faith in the judiciary.” Though wrong in blaming the Democrats for those passions, her...

The stock market is looking increasingly wobbly as Trump’s trade wars take a toll. I keep hearing that although Trump is a scoundrel or worse, at least he’s presiding over a great economy.As White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow recently put it, “The single biggest story this year is an economic boom that is durable and lasting.”Really? Look closely at the living standards of most Americans, and you get a very different picture.Yes, the stock market has boomed since Trump became president. But it’s looking increasingly wobbly as Trump’s trade wars take a toll.Over 80 percent of the stock market is owned by the richest 10 percent of Americans anyway, so most Americans never got much out of Trump’s market boom to begin with.The trade wars are about to take a toll on ordinary workers. Trump’s steel tariffs have cost Ford $1 billion so far, for example, forcing the automaker to plan mass layoffs.What about economic growth? Data from the Commerce Department shows t...

The contemporary adulation and admiration of CEOs raises the question of what enabled their continued idolisation. On 15 September 2008, the giant financial services firm Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, starting a chain reaction that saw the global economy spiralling toward total collapse. The global financial crisis that ensued revealed just how fragile and unstable the world economic order really was. If there was ever a time that neoliberal capitalism should have faced a legitimation crisis, this was it.One only needs to think back to December 2008 when the then US president Barack Obama scolded the heads of the largest US auto firms for flying to Washington in private jets to ask for financial bailouts. As one Democratic Party representative added: ‘Couldn’t you all have downgraded to first class or jet-pooled or something to get here? It would have at least sent a message that you do get it.’For a short time after the crash, those on the top of the corporate ladd...

As Tom Friedman of the New York Times (and others) furiously backtrack on the Saudi prince, an ugly truth emerges No one thinks Thomas L. Friedman, the lead foreign affairs columnist for the New York Times, has an easy job. I wouldn’t want it. Like his closely allied counterpart at the Washington Post, David Ignatius, Friedman stands astride the interlocked pinnacles of two powerful American institutions: the mainstream media and the national security establishment. He has unparalleled access to the innermost thoughts of the latter, and serves as the moralizing voice of the former. All of that comes at a price, perhaps best exemplified in Friedman’s use of a mysterious, pseudo-royal first-person plural.Consider Friedman’s tormented column this week about how the United States should respond to the apparent murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by forces close to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, now known around the world as MBS. This is the same prince, of course, wh...

There were few surprises when Saudi Arabia finally admitted what most of the world already believed: Jamal Khashoggi, the missing dissident journalist, had indeed been killed at its Istanbul consulate. The gist of the explanation that emerged in a late-night flurry of statements via state-run media had been widely trailed – as much by President Donald Trump, who had quickly suggested “rogue killers” were to blame, as anyone else. It effectively dismissed Turkish claims that he had been murdered by a Saudi hit squad flown into the country for the job, and insulated Mohammed Bin Salman, the young Saudi crown prince, from blame. He does not escape completely. As part of the palace manoeuvring, he loses one of his most trusted intelligence chiefs and a close aide but in so doing, he may have engineered a way out of an escalating crisis, allowing him to protect relations between Riyadh and Washington. So rather than being ordered from the top, Khashoggi died in a tragic sequence of ev...

He shows greater disdain for the show than he does for foreign dictators. The end of summer and arrival of fall not only means cooler temperatures and shorter days; it also means the return of NBC’s long-running “Saturday Night Live,” which launched its 44th season on September 29. For President Donald Trump, a new “SNL” season brings with it the fear of being lampooned by Alec Baldwin—and sure enough, “SNL’s” October 13 show opened with a skit poking fun at Trump’s recent meeting with rapper Kanye West (played by Chris Redd). Baldwin’s impression of Trump has been wildly popular, but the president is not a fan. And Trump is the first president in “SNL’s” 43-year history who has been deeply upset by a humorous impression of him.“SNL’s” lampooning of presidents of the United States is a time-honored tradition going back to 1975, when Chevy Chase (who was part of the show’s original cast along with comic giants like John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and...

Comedian and writer Keaton Patti — who imagined what a White House press briefing written by a bot might sound like — just shared a new imagined bot script, this time parodying the language of lofty TED Talks. SEE ALSO: Burger King's AI-written ads are beautiful disasters The "visibly clothed" TED TALKER opens the bizarrely inspirational lecture — given in a "place where you can talk" — with an anecdote about his or her grandfather, who was "paid for for being old."  "He told me there's just enough plastic in the ocean for someone to marry," the TED TALKER states. "But we're almost out of time." The audience doesn't care much about the actual TED Talk, but are insistent that they be shown graphs.

The judge set a date for the president's ex-campaign manager's sentencing. President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who recently agreed to cooperate fully in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-related investigation, appeared in an Alexandria, Virginia courtroom today in a wheelchair.Manafort was wearing a dark green jail jumpsuit when his attorney, Kevin Downing, told Judge T.S. Ellis III, “There are significant issues about Mr. Manafort’s health right now. A lot of it has to do with his terms of confinement.”Ellis set a February 8, 2019 date for Manafort’s sentencing on fraud counts. Manafort never rose from his wheelchair.Manafort was convicted on eight different criminal counts, including bank fraud and tax fraud, during his trial in Ellis’ courtroom in August. He was facing 18 charges altogether, but Ellis declared a mistrial on ten of the charges when one of the jurors could not be convinced of his guilt on all 18 charges.A...

Migrants making their way towards the US as part of a caravan of 3,000 people charged at the Mexican border on Friday, cutting the wires that divide Guatemala from its northern neighbour and confronting rows of Mexican border police. Mexico had warned the migrants that, to enter their territory, they would need a visa. Riot police had been sent to the Guatemala-Mexico border city of Tapachula as the caravan moved north. But some of the migrants disregarded the warnings and charged across, leaving them facing likely arrest. Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, was in Mexico City to meet his Mexican counterpart and described the situation as approaching “a moment of crisis”. The caravan has been an obsession of Donald Trump’s since it set out from Honduras a week ago. On Thursday night, at a Make America Great Again rally in Montana, Mr Trump said that the caravan was now the defining issue of next month’s midterm elections. Earlier in the day his chief of staff, John Kelly, a...

Bolton announced the visit to Moscow in a tweet, saying he would "continue discussions that began in Helsinki," referring to a summit between presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in July. Relations between the United States and Russia are under deep strain from accusations that Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential election, as well as tension over Russian support for the government in Syria's civil war and the conflict in Ukraine.
