Who Leaked the Paradise Papers?

Is the consortium of journalists fronting for an intelligence agency?

One year since the election of Donald Trump

Trump is not an aberration, but the malignant product of the long-term decay of American capitalism and its two-party system.
Puerto Rican teachers arrested at protest demanding reopening of schools

Puerto Ricos education secretary is following the example of New Orleans, where Hurricane Katrina was used as the opportunity to lay off thousands of teachers and privatize schools.
From Russia With Poison

Were all connected online, but no ones in charge to prevent abuses.
The Trump Doctrine

The presidents approach is: Rip things apart without thought and leave the problem to someone else.
General Mattis, Stand Up to Trump or Hell Drag You Down

Youre the only one who hasnt been infected by ethical cancer.
These are the questions to ask about the Trump-Russia connection

Its clear Moscow wanted to help Trump, but which campaign officials knew this and did they cooperate?

Trumps Asia tour will expose his craving for the approval of despots | Simon Tisdall

Dont expect to hear much about human rights abuses in the Philippines, Vietnam or China. This trip will be more chummy than challengingExpect to hear a lot of talk in the coming days about the existential threat posed by North Koreas nuclear weapons and Chinas unfair trade practices, vis a vis the US. The occasion is Donald Trumps forthcoming 11-day, five-country visit to Asia he leaves Washington on Friday for Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. If White House officials have their way, these two America First themes will dominate the trip.

What you will hear considerably less about are the appalling human rights records of Trumps hosts and his abandonment of almost any pretence of upholding western values such as open, democratic governance. Its true his recent Oval Office predecessors were all guilty, to varying degrees, of double standards on rights. But Trumps studied insouciance plumbs new depths. He seems to have no standards at all.

His personal vanity and weakness notwithstanding, Trump as president bears a responsibility to take a stand

Donald Trump, Paul Ryan and the Con Man Caucus

The House tax legislation is the end result of seven years of phoniness.
Trump, Gillespie and the Same Old Party

Trumpism has taken over the G.O.P. because the party was mostly there already.
The Guardian view on elections in the US: cause for (cautious) celebration | Editorial

Sizable victories for the Democrats in a series of races offer cheer after a year of Donald Trump. But the party should not feel too reassuredIt was the boost they needed. The jubilation of Democrats as they celebrated the results of Tuesdays elections owed much to the despair of one year before, when they learned that Donald Trump was on his way to the White House, as well as to the extraordinary events since, which have amplified his unfitness for the presidency and the extent of Russian meddling in his favour. Though his name was not on the ballot this time, he loomed large in voters minds. In Virginia and elsewhere, suburban, college-educated and minority voters surged to the polls to defeat Republicans in an anti-Trump vote.

The Democrats scored hefty victories in gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia, despite fears they could lose the latter, and grabbed a swath of seats in Virginias House of Delegates. They swept multiple mayoral races around the country and took control of the Washington state Senate. In Maine, voters approved an expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare.

How to Reduce Shootings

It has happened yet again: Inevitably, predictably, fatefully, a gunman shot dead 26 people in a Texas church on Sunday.
Putin, exposed, may become more dangerous

When covert operations become public, nations sometimes get aggressive.
A history of Donald Trumps business dealings in Russia

Whats clear, reviewing the facts, is that Trumps claim he had nothing to do with Russia over the years is nonsense.
The Saudi crown prince just made a very risky power play

An iron-fisted purge in the style of Xi Jinping.
The Clash of Social Visions

We need a tax plan based on a vision that is actually prosocial, not just a reward for donors.
Trumps Latest Outrage Against Puerto Rico

Surely, the president knows Puerto Ricans are American citizens. After all, he understands that its an island, surrounded by big water.
The F.B.I.s Black Phantom Menace

A chilling report with echoes of the bureaus persecution of black activists a half century ago talks of the threat from black identity extremists.
Seven Bizarre Notions Trump and His Team Have About America

The president and the Republicans claim to have a special understanding of American values and history. But a lot of what they say is very strange.

Poor guy hes only worth $700 million.

Letters: Trump, Kim and the Possibility of War

A psychiatrist says Trumps mental state is a legitimate inquiry, and another reader suggests that history will judge him poorly if there is a war.

Op-Ed Contributor: How You Can Help Prevent Mass Shootings
