‘You Bet Your Ass I've Got Regrets.’ As Election Day Nears, More of Trump’s Former Officials Are Speaking Out Against Him

ever in recent history have so many senior former U.S. officials publicly attacked the commander in chief they served, or the decisions he’s made, as the ranks lining up to say President Donald Trump put himself and his re-election ahead of the country, thereby threatening its security.One of the latest salvos comes from Trump’s second National Security Adviser, retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. McMaster tells TIME that Trump’s moves toward withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan —a 2016 campaign promise — have handed the Taliban a victory by allowing them to talk peace while still attacking...

epublicans in the Senate appear to have lined up enough support to move ahead with a vote to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by on Sept. 18, mere weeks before the presidential election. Just two Republican senators, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, have opposed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plan to forge ahead with a quick confirmation vote for President Donald Trump’s nominee, whom he plans to name Saturday.For the GOP, it’s a sharp departure from the precedent they set in 2016. Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died in February of that year, nearly...

Blind voters sue states over mail ballots

icky Scott has voted in his home state of North Carolina for roughly 40 years. As a blind Black man, he is used to navigating various obstacles to cast a ballot, even with his state’s accessible electronic voting machines. But this year he is facing an unprecedented situation: the coronavirus pandemic means that voting in person could put his health—and potentially his life—at risk.“I’m concerned about being exposed,” says Scott, who is 59 years-old and at a high risk for complications related to COVID-19. “I need to mitigate the possibility of contracting this thing,” he adds.But Scott...

I Was Just Denied Clemency in the State of Florida

guess I’m a public figure now, but I still haven’t gotten used to being recognized on the street. I still remember when I was homeless. How people would look right past me, sometimes it felt like they looked right through me on their way to wherever they were going. At my lowest, all I wanted was to be seen as an equal.That was still true after I was released from prison and started to . I knew there were others out there like me. We’d made a mistake, done our time and were ready to use our experiences to build a more just Florida.In 2018, we made our case to the people of this state, and...

The United Nations At 75: It Has Never Been More Needed Nor Under Greater Threat

The United Nations At 75: It Has Never Been More Needed Nor Under Greater Threat

s the United Nations celebrates its 75th anniversary this week, its limitations have never been more apparent. Neither has its necessity.I’m a political scientist by training, focusing on international relations. The first thing they teach you in IR 101 is that the international system exists in a state of “anarchy”—there is no global policeman to enforce the rules. In fact, there are no rules. Countries pretty much do what they want—the only thing that stops them is other countries acting against them. Sometimes, measures like economic sanctions are enough. Sometimes, they aren’t—the...

The Ocean Farmers Trying to Save the World With Seaweed

The Ocean Farmers Trying to Save the World With Seaweed

n a cove in Bamfield, a coastal community in British Columbia, Canada, Louis Druehl steers his boat, The Kelp Express, a mile along the mountainous coastline. For 51 years, this boat has taken Druehl to the fortuitously named Kelp Bay where beneath the water’s surface ropes of seaweed that Druehl has been carefully harvesting for decades dangle in the cold Pacific water.Referred to by some as the “seaweed guru”—by others, as the “kelp grandfather”—Druehl, 84, was the first commercial seaweed operator in North America when he began growing kelp, a brown seaweed, in 1982.

COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories Are Spreading Rapidly—and They're a Public Health Risk All Their Own

COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories Are Spreading Rapidly—and They're a Public Health Risk All Their Own

ublic health crises have spawned conspiracy theories as far back as when the Black Death ravaged Europe in the 1300s, as people desperately try to make sense of the chaotic forces disrupting their lives. While modern science offers a better understanding of how diseases infect people and how to contain them, are spreading rapidly via social media, unreliable news outlets and from our own political leaders, including U.S. President Donald Trump. The result: many Americans now believe pandemic-related conspiracy theories—and, alarmingly, those same people are less likely to take steps to...

Diversity Has Become a Booming Business. So Where Are the Results?

acing backlash in February over a sweater that looked like blackface, Gucci followed a now predictable course. Company officials apologized for appearing to mine demeaning imagery from the past; hired a global diversity czar, who is African American; and vowed to create multicultural scholarships and a more diverse workforce. Burberry announced similar efforts after it showed a hoodie that looked like a noose the same month, and Prada did the same in 2018 after it had unveiled a line of figurines that also resembled blackface.This is not just the playbook of the fashion industry.

Another drop of that magnitude, and it might be hard to justify devoting three hours of Sunday-night airtime to a glorified industry event.Hopefully, it won’t come to that.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Saw the Future When It Came to Voting Rights

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Saw the Future When It Came to Voting Rights

dissents were often even more powerful than her voice when she was in the majority. She described them as “appealing to the intelligence of a future day.” She never stopped believing in that better future or that the law provided a vehicle for moving the country forward.This was never truer than when she found herself in the minority in the voting rights case, joined by Justices Breyer, Sotomayor and Kagan. The majority opinion rolled back the 1965 Voting Rights Act’s protections and permitted states, including those with histories of racially motivated voter suppression, to change their...
