Amy Coney Barrett Is an Emergency

This is not a drill. This is a judicial emergency. We are at DEFCON 1. These are not exaggerations.If that President Trump plans on nominating to the on Saturday, we will be on the verge of the Supreme Court jolting to the right in a way that has very few precedents in its history. And, unlike some past Republican appointments to the high court, this one will come with a level of certainty that is almost unparalleled.Stated differently, if Judge Barrett becomes Justice Barrett, one of the , , will be replaced with a staunch conservative who could take the Court to the far right on almost...

Trump’s Saturday Night Rally Was a Super-Spreader of Stupidity

Trump’s Saturday Night Rally Was a Super-Spreader of Stupidity

President Trump began his campaign rally in Fayetteville, N.C., on Saturday by speaking about his intent to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court this week. Then, as Trump rallies often do, things got weird.As the president reveled in the chants of “Fill that seat!” coming from the crowd, Trump complained about how the media would react to his decision to move forward with a nomination next week. Trump also told rallygoers that his choice will be a woman.“I hope you hear [the chant] back home. Look at all that press. That’s a lot of press. That’s a lot of fake news,” Trump said. “So the...

Trump Preached White Supremacy in Minnesota, America Barely Noticed

Trump Preached White Supremacy in Minnesota, America Barely Noticed

Last Friday, on the night that Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, made a campaign appearance in Bemidji, a small city in northern Minnesota. Trump played to the base instincts of an adoring crowd at the airport, where MAGA hats outnumbered face masks by an extraordinary margin — before he slipped into a terrifying embrace of eugenics, “the racehorse theory” of human breeding, and the superiority of Minnesota genes.Out of the gate at the evening rally, Trump stoked nativism in a state that has resettled large numbers of refugees from Somalia. “One of the most vital issues in this election is the...

Former Pence Deputy Backs Biden: 'We Are at a Time of Constitutional Crisis'

A former high-ranking deputy to Vice President is pledging to vote for Joe Biden and has broken with President Trump, saying the president “doesn’t actually care about anyone but himself.”Olivia Troye was a lifelong Republican who served as the top-ranking Pence staffer on the administration’s response, but she says what she saw from Trump made supporting him impossible. “I truly believe we are at a time of constitutional crisis,” she says in a video released Thursday by a group of anti-Trump Republicans. “At this point, it’s country over party.”Troye served as the Homeland Security and...

How 'Cuties' Is Fueling the Far Right's Obsession With Pedophilia

How 'Cuties' Is Fueling the Far Right's Obsession With Pedophilia

No foreign film in recent memory has attracted quite as much scrutiny as ’s . Directed by French-Senegalese filmmaker Maïmouna Doucouré, Cuties, which was a hit when it premiered at Sundance last year, tells the story of an 11-year-old girl, Amy, who strays from her strict conservative and religious Muslim upbringing to join a hip-hop dance troupe. At its essence, Cuties is a coming-of-age narrative and a commentary on social media’s role in sexualizing children, but that was not what the film’s — a luridly hued image of made-up prepubescent girls, pouting at the camera and crouching in...

How Far Will Donald Trump Go to Win?

How Far Will Donald Trump Go to Win?

Last October, standing on the front porch of a small two-story house that had seen better days, I witnessed one of the more unsettling conversations of my adult life.I had embedded with a team of community organizers in Alamance County, North Carolina, an hour’s drive west of Raleigh. This was Trump country. The president had won here in 2016 by 13 points. The sheriff was as having accused “criminal illegal immigrants” of “raping our citizens in many, many ways,” and the county had inked a $2.3 million contract with ICE to detain migrants who’d crossed the border and were living in the...
