How Low Can Gutter Politics Go?

My ex-wife, Cindy, and I gave a television interview in 2008 to share our story—not about the glories of football, but about the pain of my mental health struggles and their effect on our marriage. It was uncomfortable to blow our spirits like that. Mental illness carried more of a stigma back then. It was hard to admit you needed help and even harder to get it. She helped me through the hardest time of my life. Because our story was ultimately one of healing, forgiveness, and redemption, I knew that if we came forward, we could convince others thatRead News

World Insights: Cabinet reshuffle in Japan reflects focus on politics, security over economics

TOKYO, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) — Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida carried out a major reshuffle of his cabinet and the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) executive ranks earlier this week, intensifying public scrutiny of the party’s ties to the Democratic Party. The Unification Church saw approval ratings plummet. Analysts pointed out that Kishida welcomed the conservative right-wing force previously led by former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Wednesday’s reshuffle, following a tough foreign policy announcement, having shown a clear focus on factional politics and national security over people’s livelihoods. Soon after the new cabinet was inaugurated, it was revealed thatRead News

DePerno’s dilemma and the money-lending campaigns: The week in Michigan politics

This is Ben Orner, MLive’s election reporter. Hope you’re leaving for a good weekend. We’ve known for some time that Dana Nessel’s Attorney General’s office was investigating the alleged theft of voting machines last year from the 2020 elections. But that saga revealed a new twist this week, with Nessel AG’s opponent Matthew DePerno in November as one of its main characters. In Nessel’s request for the appointment of a special prosecutor, she described a months-long investigation into a coordinated plan allegedly “arranged” by DePerno, R-Lake City’s Daire Rendon state representative and attorney Stefanie Lambert Juntilla to gain access toRead News

There is a gaping hole at the center of British politics where ideas used to be

What do Liz Truss, Rishi Sunak or Keir Starmer imagine is happening in Britain today, as crops fail, food bank queues lengthen and profits soar? How do they understand the unique combination of social, economic and ecological crises of 2022 that is already wreaking havoc on many people’s lives? The truth is, we don’t really know, and maybe neither do they. Truss has certainly articulated a coherent ideological position – that taxes and bureaucracy have prevented the British economy from growing – but it is a thesis so easily refuted, so detached from everyday life, so obviously rooted in ThatcheriteRead News

Rookie Politics: Is Congress Getting Less Experienced?

In 2016, Donald Trump became the first president ever to be elected without any political or military experience. His success was preceded by the GOP Tea Party movement in 2010 which prioritized ‘outsiders’ over traditional political activists and elected officials. In 2018, Democrats took control of the House with candidates new to the political campaign trail. This cycle, four high-profile Senate races that the Cook Political Report rated as competitive GOP candidates who have not yet held political office (Dr. Mehmet Oz of Pennsylvania; Blake Masters of Arizona; Herschel Walker of Georgia) ; and J.D. Vance of Ohio). That madeRead News

Early Days of ‘Fake News’ Fueling the Politics of ‘Campaigns, Inc.’ at the TimeLine Theater

The more things change in American politics, the more they stay the same. That’s one possible takeaway from “Campaigns, Inc.,” a new political comedy from TimeLine Theater Company that marks the playmaking debut of company member Will Allan. Allan’s inspiration is the 1934 California gubernatorial race and, more specifically, the work of a duo he identifies as one of the first of a new professional generation: the political consultant. Campaigns, Inc. was the name adopted by the two-person company of Leone Baxter (Tyler Meredith) and Clem Whitaker (Yuriy Sardarov, the finale of NBC’s “Chicago Fire”). When the play opens, theyRead News

Taiwan has blamed politics for canceling the World Pride event

Participants march under a giant rainbow flag during the LGBT Pride parade in Taipei, Taiwan on October 26, 2019. REUTERS/Eason Lam TAIPEI, Aug 12 (Reuters) – Taiwan blamed “political considerations” for the cancellation of WorldPride 2025 Taiwan on Friday, after organizers said they had asked for the word “Taiwan” to be removed.

The southern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung was slated to host WorldPrideRead News

ReAwaken America Tour to mix far-right politics, religion in Batavia this weekend

At the ReAwaken America Tour in Virginia Beach last month, Congressman Clay Clark opened the event by asking the crowd two questions. “Ladies and gentlemen, how many of you out there agree that Jesus is King? How many of you believe that President Donald J. Trump is president?” he said amid chants of “U.S.A.” from the audience. That mix of religion, politics and conspiracy is what Western New Yorkers can expect during the tour at Cornerstone Church in Batavia Friday and Saturday. Originally planned to be held in Rochester, the controversial right-of-way was condemned by area activists, religious leaders andRead News

No politics in the revision of the election map, say the co-chairmen

Two former politicians co-chairing a commission redrawing New Brunswick’s provincial electoral map say there will be no politics involved in their work. Former Liberal premier Camille Thériault and former Progressive Conservative MP Roger Clinch say they will adhere to the letter of the law, which requires them to come up with 49 new ridings roughly equal in population. “Our mandate is very, very clear. It has nothing to do with politics, nothing to do with gerrymandering,” Thériault said Wednesday as the commission launched its website. “We are there to follow the legislation that has been put in place. “We willRead News

Andrew Warren’s “wake-up” policies helped resolve two cold cases in Florida

TAMPA – Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren’s “woke” politics in his stunning announcement last week suspending the twice-elected official. But, it was precisely progressive politics that drove Warren’s own major announcement Thursday, which she had been planning for days before she was escorted from her office this morning by armed sheriff’s deputies. Prosecutors have secured a grand jury indictment for two men who authorities say raped and killed Barbara Grams and Linda Lansen in 1983. In Grams’ case, Tampa police detectives have nabbed the wrong man, who went on to spend 37 years in prison. Lansen’sRead News

How your profession can predict your politics

Why are you conservative? Or libertarian, republican, democrat, socialist? How do people reach these different conclusions? We like to think that our politics are based on rational analysis. We analyze what conservatives and liberals write, weigh their opinions and draw conclusions based on facts and evidence. But it turns out that something else is probably going on. I can predict your political party accurately if I only know what you do for a living. Here’s why I say it: When you give money to a political candidate, the government needs the candidate’s campaign to ask you what your skills are.Read News

Stress, Abuse, Oversight: What Educators Face as Political Schools

The political debates that make their way into school buildings have been a great source of stress for educators, confirms a recently published nationally representative survey. In fact, school leaders are three times more likely than other working adults to view the intrusion of politicized issues — such as mitigating COVID-19 or classroom conversations about race — as a contributing factor. work-related stress.

Technology, global politics make CHIPS and Science Act necessary – Daily Leader

Mississippi Republican US Sens. Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde-Smith are near-lockstep on their votes – skewing conservative on fiscal and social issues and reflecting the views of their conservative Mississippi constituencies. But on the issue of CHIPS and the Science Act, Wicker and Hyde-Smith find themselves on opposite sides of the legislation. Wicker voted to support it. Hyde-Smith voted against it. The split vote of Mississippi’s US Senate delegation becomes more interesting when we consider that a year earlier, Wicker and Hyde-Smith joined as signatories of a bipartisan letter calling on President Joe Biden to increase US semiconductor production inRead News
