Nine Ways the U.S. Voting System Is Rigged But Not Against Donald Trump

Voting isn't rigged against Donald Trump - it’s rigged in obvious and subtle ways against minorities and people without much money. Between one-quarter and one-third of American adults, up to 50 million people, are eligible to vote but aren’t registered to vote. The unregistered are younger, poorer and less white than registered voters.

What a Real Review of U.S. Military Assistance to Saudi Arabia Would Say

Americans have not paid much attention to the war In Yemen. With all eyes on Syria and the neo-Cold War rivalry there with Russia, Yemen did not come up at all in the presidential debates. Yet according to UN figures, the war has left 10,000 dead and 900,000 civilians displaced — and it arguably implicates the United States even more than the Syrian conflict.

FLASHBACK: Obama Believed In ‘Rigged Elections’ In 2008

This article was shared 15K times at the time I curated it. The headline sort of misrepresents what Obama said even though he did say that both Democrats and Republicans have tried to influence elections. He never claimed what Donald is claiming.

Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia

After lengthy investigations, officials also believe that a hacking of Democratic emails was aimed at disrupting the election rather than electing Mr. Trump. Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.

Analysis: The Vengeful World of Donald Trump, and Why It Matters

Summarizing Donald Trump's worldview isn't easy, but this may come close: The world is a violent place, and it demands a violent response. His campaign might seem like a storm emitting strikes of lightning: He's made news by giving out a Republican rival's phone number, tweeting about a "sex tape" and even accusing his opponent, Hillary Clinton, of possibly taking drugs.

Bernie Sanders: First, beat Donald Trump; then implement most progressive agenda in U.S. history

Nov. 8 is Election Day and, from now until then, I will be working as hard as I can to see that Donald Trump is defeated and that Hillary Clinton becomes our next president. But defeating Trump is not enough. On the day after the election I intend to work equally hard, with millions of other Americans, to make certain that the new president and Congress implement the 2016 Democratic Party platform, the most progressive party agenda in American history.

These three maps show just how effectively gerrymandering can swing election outcomes

North Carolina is perhaps the ultimate swing state in 2016: It’s the only one with truly competitive races for president, Senate, and governor. Remarkably, though, not a single seat is expected to change hands in the state’s House delegation, where Republicans hold a lopsided 10-to-3 advantage over Democrats.

Trade in Services Agreement

According to World Bank figures services comprise around 75% of the EU economy, 80% of the US economy and the majority of economies of most countries. The global economy is shifting towards a service-oriented economy. Cross-border trade in services for around 13% of the global GDP in 2015; for the EU twice that figure (around 24% of its total GDP). But it is not just these numbers alone that prove that the TiSA negotiations deserve a much higher attention in the public discussion than they currently have.
