No One Knows Who Will Be President in 2018. That's Frightening

No One Knows Who Will Be President in 2018. That's Frightening
- As the scandal and furor surrounding ousted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and his ties to both the Turkish and Russian governments increasingly ropes in President Trump, it appears more and more likely that Trump knew of those illicit ties. Additionally, there’s the other information that Trump revealed to the Russians during an Oval Office meeting — that by firing FBI director James Comey, he had sought to end any investigation into his ties with Russia and its efforts to destabilize American democracy. With these nonstop bombshells and the ongoing investigations — which now include a special counsel — it appears that Trump is almost certainly involved in the scandal and possibly guilty of impeachable offenses. If Trump were clever enough, he would resign well before impeachment proceedings begin, and indeed, it has been revealed that the White House counsel has begun researching the articles of impeachment (Trump also just hired a lawyer to deal with the exploding Russia probe). With this on the horizon, we should begin to take a look at Mike Pence, the man who will take Trump's place should he get the boot.

The terror of lynching haunts black Americans again

The terror of lynching haunts black Americans again
- The man who reportedly killed Collins was a white student named Seth Ubanski, who is said to have been involved with a Facebook group called Alt-Reich: Nation.
A lynching is a spectacular murder that serves as a warning to a whole group, as did Jim Crow-era hangings and 2015’s murders at Emanuel AME Church. The Collins killing reinforces the fear in African Americans that there is no space or activity – not buying Skittles in a suburb, buying a toy in a store, or going to a party – which is safe for us.

Mexican Govt. Says That Canceling Neoliberal NAFTA Would be 'Lost Opportunity'

Mexican Govt. Says That Canceling Neoliberal NAFTA Would be 'Lost Opportunity'
- The treaty's cancelation would be “above all, a lost opportunity ... (because) NAFTA is good for the three economies, although there is no doubt it can be improved,” Videgaray said to reporters.
U.S. President Donald Trump formally notified Congress last Thursday of his intentions to renegotiate the 23-year-old neoliberal trade pact with Canada and Mexico. Renegotiation of NAFTA was a centerpiece of Trump's presidential campaign, during which he called the treaty a “disaster” that has resulted in the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs.
“We would have a problem in the near term,” but as a region “we would lose the opportunity to create what might be the most competitive and best growth in recent decades,” he said.
