      Make America violent again: Trump’s rhetoric could cause Election Day mayhem — and worse

      Donald Trump’s claim that the upcoming election is rigged against him is without precedent in modern US history. The potential consequences are bigger than you think. The GOP candidate’s talk of “millions” of fraudulent votes and his commitment to only accept the election results “if I win” don’t sound like the words of a...

      Trump: We don’t know that Russia is hacking the US election. Experts: Yes, we do.

      At Wednesday night’s presidential debate, Donald Trump asserted that nobody has any idea who is behind the email hacks of the Democratic National Committee and top Clinton aide John Podesta — despite the US intelligence community having officially blamed Russia. “She has no idea whether it’s Russia, China, or anybody else,” Trump...

      3 winners and 2 losers from the final 2016 presidential debate

      It’s all finally over. The final debate of the 2016 presidential election is behind us, the last event of its kind after two other general election debates, nine Democratic primary debates, and twelve Republican primary debates.

      Why Donald Trump won’t create a third party

      Some have suggested that Donald Trump’s candidacy signals a future break in the GOP. The basic idea is that Trump’s campaign has tapped into, and galvanized, a vanguard of disaffected voters largely within the GOP base that are now so disaffected with the GOP as a party that they will no longer reliably vote for Republican nominees....

      I study democracies, and what I’ve learned is this: they collapse without graceful losers

      Sanders and Trump may be playing with fire. In every contested election there are winners and losers. While lots of attention, money, and power flows to the winners, it is really the losers who are key to keeping democracy healthy. More specifically, it is important that the people who lose elections recognize that they lost fair and square —...

      Paul Ryan’s biggest failure

      America’s democratic institutions are under attack, and Paul Ryan isn’t defending them. One can certainly understand, if not quite sympathize with, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s predicament. His party has picked a presidential nominee who appears unelectable and is, with each passing day, doing untold damage to the party’s...

      How Vladimir Putin is being outfoxed by a Chechen warlord

      Ramzan Kadyrov, the 39-year-old leader of the Russian republic of Chechnya — and a man whose idea of expressing disapproval of a minister is to pummel him in a boxing ring — is looking for a new assistant. True to his flamboyant style, he will recruit one through an Apprentice-style reality TV show. Behind Kadyrov’s thuggish and...

      Mike Pence brazenly contradicted Trump on Russia and Syria

      Late in Wednesday’s vice presidential debate, Democrat Tim Kaine accused Republican Mike Pence of praising Russian President Vladimir Putin as a strong leader. Pence denied it. Kaine: Governor Pence said, inarguably, Vladimir Putin is a better leader than President Obama. Pence: That is absolutely inaccurate. Turns out, though, it was...
