  • The new political divide | The Economist 17 minutes ago
    • Globalisation and politics
    • The new political divide

       

      Farewell, left versus right. The contest that matters now is open against closed

       
       
    • AS POLITICAL theatre, America’s party conventions have no parallel. Activists from right and left converge to choose their nominees and celebrate conservatism (Republicans) and progressivism (Democrats). But this year was different, and not just because Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for president by a major party. The conventions highlighted a new political faultline: not between left and right, but between open and closed (see article). Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, summed up one side of this divide with his usual pithiness. “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo,” he declared. His anti-trade tirades were echoed by the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party.

  • Bernie Sanders Has an Immigration Problem With the Left - Bloomberg Politics 28 minutes ago
    • Bernie Sanders Has an Immigration Problem With the Left

      His rhetoric against guest-worker programs has brought him trouble with the left. Can he reframe it?

    • With immigration in the forefront of the presidential race, Bernie Sanders faces a potential obstacle at Saturday's Democratic debate: How to defend his concerns about guest-worker programs without alienating would-be supporters.
    • As an independent senator from Vermont in 2007, Sanders was among progressives who objected to the program in President George W. Bush's immigration bill. Now, while seeking the Democrats' nomination, he's been accused of leaving Latinos “at the altar” with his vote against the bill; attacked by rival Martin O'Malley; and accused by immigration advocates of employing GOP talking points.

      Sanders has been working to shore up his reputation as a fighter for immigrant rights, by hiring prominent activists and putting out a detailed policy agenda. On Monday, Sanders promised to go beyond President Barack Obama’s executive actions to prevent the deportation of people who would have been protected by the Senate immigration bill in 2013, “dismantling inhumane deportation programs,” and more.

    • Who Is Putin's Real Ally?

       
       
         
        By  Roger L Simon  July 27, 2016
    • Oh, the vapors, the vapors!  Donald Trump has done it again. He has a gone a bridge too far for the 150th time, but on this occasion taken us all the way across the Bering Straits to the very edge of the Gulag Archipelago. He has urged Vladimir Putin to reveal the contents of Hillary Clinton's gazillion missing emails the FBI somehow couldn't find.
    • "Traitor! Traitor!" yell the well-intentioned, like former SecDef Leon Panetta. This selfish yellow-haired plutocrat must be disqualified from the presidency!

      Never mind that Putin would need no encouragement whatsoever from any outsider to hack the wide-open server of the former secretary of state, nor would the intelligence services of at least a dozen other first-world countries (they all do it—we were listening to Merkel's cell phone ourselves, it will be recalled), not to mention the who-knows-how-many non-state actors and twelve-year-old high-tech whippersnappers with the skill to do this.

    • PHILADELPHIA — Wearing a big smile and a one-piece jumpsuit made out of fabric decorated with Bernie Sanders images along with a campaign sign Oscar Salazar strode confidently down Broad Street heading towards City Hall for a protest rally.
    • “My support still remains with Bernie Sanders,” the 21 year old Westchester, New York native and college student said. He added that their cause to have Sanders as the nominee is not unrealistic, nor outside of reality, despite the fact that Sanders handed the nomination to Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonClinton-Obama hug becomes most-liked Instagram photo of presidential campaign Sanders fans make scene in neon-green Greens slam ‘dangerous, dirty, denying’ Trump at Dem convention MORE at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday evening.

      He doesn’t see his unwavering support as childish or immature. He stresses that because of this movement away from the establishment, he has got his entire family involved in politics, registering some who have never voted before.

  • Barack Obama’s Revenge: Hillary Must Defend Him | National Review about 2 hours ago
    • Obama’s Final Revenge: The Accidental Destruction of Hillary Clinton
      • by      Ben Shapiro    
           

          She’s forced to defend his legacy and his happy talk. But Americans aren’t happy.

    • <p><span style="font-size: 1em; letter-spacing: 0px; line-height: 1.5em;"><span class="drop">H</span>illary Clinton is in serious trouble.</span></p><br/><br/><p>She’s not in trouble because of the massive competence of Donald Trump. She’s in trouble because she is terrible at the game her husband invented: the game of “who cares more about people like you.” In March 1992, Bill Clinton met a member of an AIDS-activism group at an event at a nightclub in New York City. Attacked by the activist for not doing enough for AIDS victims, Clinton famously responded, “I feel your pain, I feel your pain.” Clinton’s false empathy led him from victory to victory; he defeated the out-of-touch George H. W. Bush and crushed the oddly self-referential Bob Dole.</p><br/><br/><div data-ob-template="nationalreview" data-browser="firefox" data-os="win32" data-ob-mark="true" data-dynload=""

      U.S. diplomatic strategy on South China Sea appears to founder

       
        WASHINGTON  |  
    • In the lead-up to an international court ruling on China's claims in the South China Sea this month, United States officials talked about rallying a coalition to impose "terrible" costs to Beijing's international reputation if flouted the court's decision.

      But just two weeks after the July 12 announcement by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague - which at least on paper, appeared to be a humiliating defeat for China - the U.S. strategy appears to be unraveling and the court's ruling is in danger of becoming irrelevant.

    • Earlier this year, U.S. officials spoke repeatedly of the need for countries in the Asia-Pacific region and elsewhere, including the European Union, to make it clear that the decision of the court should be binding.

      "We need to be ready to be very loud and vocal, in harmony together ... to say that this is international law, this is incredibly important, it is binding on all parties," Amy Searight, the then-U.S. deputy assistant secretary of defense for South and Southeast Asia, said in February.

    • "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump said at a news conference in Florida. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

       

      A spokesman for the Republican nominee, Jason Miller, later walked back the candidate's remarks, tweeting: "To be clear, Mr. Trump did not call on, or invite, Russia or anyone else to hack Hillary Clinton’s e-mails today."

       

      Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s senior policy adviser, characterized Trump’s apparent support of Russian hacking as “a national security issue."

    • Hillary Clinton appears to think this is a normal election. If she's right, she'll probably win comfortably.

       

      But she might well be wrong.

       

      In a normal U.S. election, the two parties do battle on a simple left-right spectrum: higher taxes or lower taxes; more regulation or less regulation; greater foreign policy restraint or less foreign policy restraint; more freedom in sexual matters or less freedom in sexual matters.

    • Why These Union Members and Lifelong Democrats Are Voting Trump

      Their national unions have endorsed Hillary Clinton, but some members say they’ll pull the lever for Trump, who’s promising to bring back American manufacturing and get tough on China.

      David Kemper and his wife are union members and lifelong Democrats. But the Kempers and their 20-year-old son, Nicholas, are planning to vote for Donald Trump in November.

      “Growing up we were very strong Democrats, but the Democrat party left us,” David Kemper said, standing at the back of a Ted Cruz barbecue near the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week. He had traveled from Minnesota to the RNC to be with Nicholas, who was an alternate Texas delegate for Trump.

    • When the Kempers vote for Trump, they’ll be breaking with the leadership of their national unions, which have both endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. “I’m in the CWA, my wife is American Federation of Teachers, but we felt like the unions have left us, too,” said David Kemper.

      The split between labor leaders and union members lies at the center of Trump’s potential path to the White House, which includes winning over a swath of Rust Belt states from Pennsylvania to Ohio, thanks to his cross-party appeal among traditionally Democratic union workers.
