Organized crime had ties to the New York and New Jersey construction industry in the 1980s and 1990s making contact between developers and mafia-controlled companies unavoidable. Donald Trump worked with mob-controlled companies and unions to build his buildings. Trump's palling around with ...

Anyone familiar with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) may find that it can be challenging to explain to others, in simple terms, how it threatens our rights online and over our digital devices.

Stolen emails posted by Wikileaks show DNC officials scoffing at Sanders and his supporters and in one instance, questioning his commitment to his Jewish religion. Some emails also show DNC and White House officials mulling whether to invite guests with controversial backgrounds to Democratic ...

An intense and detailed examination of our current culture, our pain, and why Donald Trump may become the ruler of the free world, a perfect Bond villain driven only by egomania to rule it all.

An excerpt:

"To call this fascism doesn’t do justice to fascism. Fascism had, in some measure, an ideology and occasional coherence that Trump utterly lacks. But his movement is clearly fascistic in its demonization of foreigners, its hyping of a threat by a domestic minority (Muslims and Mexicans are the new Jews), its focus on a single supreme leader of what can only be called a cult, and its deep belief in violence and coercion in a democracy that has heretofore relied on debate and persuasion. This is the Weimar aspect of our current moment. Just as the English Civil War ended with a dictatorship under Oliver Cromwell, and the French Revolution gave us Napoleon Bonaparte, and the unstable chaos of Russian democracy yielded to Vladimir Putin, and the most recent burst of Egyptian democracy set the conditions for General el-Sisi’s coup, so our paralyzed, emotional hyperdemocracy leads the stumbling, frustrated, angry voter toward the chimerical panacea of Trump."
That’s what’s scariest about Donald Trump.

A reader has asked me to look into the theory that the movie industry uses certain months of the year to release bad or unwanted movies. The so-called Hollywood ‘dump months‘ are January and February, with some commentators also including August and September in the classification. I looked at the movies US cinemas released over a five-year …
