Citing a violation of campaign regulations, the motion picture academy announced Saturday that it has rescinded the Oscar nomination for sound mixer Greg P. Russell from “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.”

As Critics Sneer, Trump Is Maneuvering to Unmuzzle Economy

Virtually the whole world is beating up on the Trump administration for daring to predict that low marginal tax rates, regulatory rollbacks, and the repeal of Obamacare will generate 3 to 3.5 percent economic growth in the years ahead.

In a CNBC interview last week, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin held the line on this forecast. He also argued the need for dynamic budget scoring to capture the effects of faster growth. Good for him.

If Democrats Want to Challenge Trump, They Need a New Strategy

The moment that Donald Trump was inaugurated as president of the United States, the Democratic Party became the weakest, in terms of elected offices held, it has been in the entire history of the United States. While Republicans in Congress have begun to show some interest in investigating the Trump campaign’s pre-election ties to Russia, it remains the case that party competition, not the checks and balances among branches of the government, is the most important restraint on the power of the president. That means that Democrats in Congress, weak as they might be, are the only major obstacle between Trump and total control of the United States government.

Immigration and Economic Self-Interest

If we want to figure out whether deporting illegal immigrants would hurt our economic interests, we might want to know what it would do to the total size of the U.S. economy. That’s relevant to questions about the size of our tax base, for example. But what we most want to know is the effect their removal would have on the incomes of everyone else: that is, of native-born Americans and legal immigrants.

Weakened Democrats opt for total war on Trump

Reduced to their weakest state in a generation, Democratic Party leaders will gather in two cities this weekend to plot strategy and select a new national chairman with the daunting task of rebuilding the party’s depleted organization. But senior Democratic officials concede the blueprint has already been chosen for them by an incensed army of liberals demanding no less than total war against President Donald Trump.

The Wrong Way to Rebuild the Democratic Party

As Democrats and progressives rebuild for the Trump era, they need a bold vision and a new strategy. Now is not the time to re-litigate the fractious intraparty fights of years past. Instead, they need to rally around new leaders who offer a truly transformative way forward.

During the 2016 primaries, Democrats had a choice between an establishment candidate campaigning on her hard-won experience and insider credentials, or a liberal populist buoyed by a sea of small-dollar donors calling for big change.
