A Reminder on Tsarnaev - Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty in the Boston Marathon bombing. At this point, it seems worth remembering that several prominent Republicans, including the 2008 Republican candidate for president, took the opportunity of Tsarnaev’s apprehension to try to read the Fifth and Sixth Amendments out of the Constitution: Sens. Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Kelly Ayotte and Rep. Peter King argued against trying Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarn... http://ow.ly/2X83cd

Populist Conspiracies - Richard Hofstadter was a very influential historian but he was also a tremendous snob whose personal proclivities would not make him look positively at a bunch of poor southern farmers. In The Age of Reform, Hofstadter notably dismissed the Populists’ claims that monetary policy was part of an east coast conspiracy to keep them down. That view of the Populists remained powerful for a long time and has never really totally gone away. But what if t... http://ow.ly/2X78ld

“Pity the poor Christian photographer” is a tactic - As I mentioned earlier, my views on the general approach embodied in RFRAs to protecting religious freedom as a general matter are complicated and conflicted, but my views on the political dynamic at work in the current push for them are not. Another reminder, via Dan Savage, comes this morning from Springfield, Missouri, where an effort to roll back civil rights and social equality for LGBT residents was, depressingl... http://ow.ly/2X6uUy

Retaliation - “WuZhen-5 under the wing of an aircraft carrier – 2″ by Flavio Mucia (AMB Brescia) – http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambbrescia/5943710801. Licensed under CC BY 2.0 via Wikimedia Commons.   My latest at the Diplomat takes a look at the Obama administration’s executive order on retaliation against private Chinese actors: But the Obama administration may be willing to take the risk of a hard stance on Chinese cyber-espionage.

But the Obama administration may be willing to take the risk of a hard stance on Chinese cyber-espionage. Industrial espionage isn't the only, or even the most important, way for China to get technology from U.S. companies. Ever since China began attracting more FDI, Chinese companies have ...

This Day in Labor History: April 7, 2000 - On April 7, 2000, the Workers’ Rights Consortium formed at a New York conference. This apparel industry monitoring organization developed in response to the anti-sweatshop movement of the 1990s and still exists today, trying to bring attention in the United States to the plight of foreign workers making apparel for our colleges and universities. By the 1990s, almost all American textile production had moved overseas, largely to... http://ow.ly/2X1Znl

2014 MLB: The AL - AL WEST: 1. SEA 2. LAAOA (*) 3. OAK 4. HOU 5. TEX Like Erik, I’m never inclined to be optimistic about the Mariners, and the offense could certainly still have problems. The Cruz signing has a classic closing-the-barn-door-after-etc. feel to it: guy off a career year coming into Safeco, seems ominous. Only the players whose ABs Cruz will be taking over — see Kansas City — were so terrible last year that if he’s even medicore it will be a major upgrade... http://ow.ly/2X0Qp1

Pilots in the Coal Mine - This Jacobin article about the Germanwings disaster makes an important point about the particular case: pilots are increasingly a contingent, vulnerable part of the labor force, and this context should be considered when trying to understand why a pilot would hide an illness that would affect his ability to fly. Further, even violent acts can be extreme responses to social and material stresses everyone is facing, and they may be informative ab... http://ow.ly/2X7OwE

A Tale of Two Elections - So last night, there were two major local elections in the U.S. In the first case, Rahm Emmanuel, he who is friend to all humanity, won re-election against progressive challenger Jesus “Chuy” Garcia 56-44% (on 40% turnout), in an election that was nationally touted as a showdown between the corporate and progressive wings of the Democratic Party. The secret of Emmanuel’s success: It wasn’t just humility that propelled Emanuel to a second term; ... http://ow.ly/2X6Ieh

The Nuts Behind the California Drought - Admittedly, the near-death experiences give me an anti-nut bias. But Helaine Olen’s point here is crucial: Barely mentioned was the fact that the clueless wealthy might just as well go ahead and turn on the taps—let ten thousand golf course bougainvillea bloom. They aren’t the problem, or not much of the problem. Listen up: California’s agricultural sector uses about 80 percent of the state’s water. As Mother Jones reported, it t... http://ow.ly/2X68iY

“We Also Need to Solve the Pakistan Problem.” - The Bush administration in one memo. The fact that it was sent to the the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth is a bonus. Ah, for the days when the adults were in charge. I’m still waiting for the memo from Farley explaining how revenues can get into more the million a year range. http://ow.ly/2X3LyI
What was it about the previous government service of the likes of Rumsfeld and Cheney, to say nothing of Bush himself, that led “the adults are back in charge” to have any credibility in the village? Log in to Reply. Karate Bearfighter says: April 7, 2015 at 4:16 pm ...
