I have a confession to make: I haven't been paying very close attention to national politics this year. This is thanks, in large part, to the fact that I've been working on a book. Whatever time I once spent following Twitter pundits and scouring second-by-second national news updates, I've devoted to reading reports on irrigation, learning more about the , investigating (TDR) programs, and more. If you thought it wasn't possible to nerd out over cattle grazing methods, think again. But I also switched this year from mostly reading national news to reading more local and regional news. And as I look back on the year, I've realized how important this switch has been. I don't want to denigrate the importance of national political awareness. I.

Time has selected 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg as its 2019 person of the year. Thunberg, who this year led a worldwide movement demanding action on climate change and scolding world leaders for "failing us," has become the youngest Time person of the year ever by almost a decade; the in 1927. "For sounding the alarm about humanity’s predatory relationship with the only home we have, for bringing to a fragmented world a voice that transcends backgrounds and borders, for showing us all what it might look like when a new generation leads, Greta Thunberg is Time 's 2019 Person of the Year," . .

1. House Democrats said Tuesday they had reached a deal with the White House to advance a new U.S.-Canada-Mexico trade deal after months of negotiations. The agreement is designed to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, which President Trump has criticized. "There is no question of course that this trade agreement is much better than NAFTA," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Tuesday, saying that are "a victory for the American worker." If the pact is ratified, it will amount to Trump's main legislative success since Democrats regained control of the House in last year's midterms. []. 2.

Here's a question for you: Is 2019 the last year of the decade? Yes. No. Maybe. It's complicated. Ever since I asserted, in October, that there were "," I've had readers writing in to let me know that everything I'd assumed about time, the universe, and the recordkeeping of human history is based on a lie. While I'd originally intended to write a rebuttal explaining, in the simplest terms, how a decade works ( it's just 10 years! Any 10 years! ), when I set out to do so, I inadvertently tumbled down a wormhole of theology, philosophy, history, mathematics, astronomy, and the. This much is for sure: Whether you believe the decade ends in 2019 or 2020, everything you thought you knew about the calendar is wrong. Let's start with the convention.

Even before you bring a baby into the world, people start warning you about all the hard phases of parenting: There's the newborn phase, when sleep is hard to come by; the "terrible twos," when toddlers start to find their voice and push every button you have; and of course, the hardest phase of all: the teen years. Teens are notoriously moody, argumentative, and closed off.

The last two days have given us an instructive glimpse of what American politics has become in the Trump era — and in particular of the stylistic and strategic gulf that now separates the country's two main parties. On Monday, the Justice Department's Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report on the use of surveillance powers by the FBI in the Russia investigation that ensnared the Trump campaign and administration.

Without casting aspersions on anyone's , I would like to ask whether anyone in Congress really takes this whole impeachment thing seriously. If they did, there is no way, I think, that we would be that "canceling a holiday recess for one of the most extraordinary events in the Senate's history is not popular in any corner of the chamber.". Maybe I just have been paying too much attention to the actual text of the articles of impeachment against President Trump introduced on Tuesday morning. Trump is said to have "ignored and injured the interests of the Nation." Not only that: He "will remain a threat to national security and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office.". Imagine believing that a single word of this is true, or indeed tha.

A member of President Trump's re-election campaign either never saw Avengers: Endgame or they did, and could only see similarities between Trump and Thanos, the genocidal villain who wanted to wipe out half of the universe's population. On Tuesday, not long after House Democrats his campaign showing Trump's face superimposed over Thanos.

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg just as a consultant for McKinley & Co. between 2007 and 2010. On the list, among clients like the U.S. Postal Service and the Natural Resources Defense Council and Best Buy, was the Canadian supermarket chain Loblaws. Here's how he described his six-month stint in Toronto with Loblaws on Tuesday:. [Loblaws] was looking to cut prices, and brought him in to figure out how to do it in a way that would actually help the bottom line. The analysis he built, Buttigieg told me, was millions of lines of data. It was too big for Excel, so he put it into a different program that needed to be run through a special laptop that he toted around and nicknamed Bertha. "There's an exquisite science to this, because i.

House Democrats announced Tuesday they struck a with President Trump to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement. The new pact, with the somewhat unwieldy title of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (or USMCA), would update a host of laws and regulations governing trade relations between the three countries. The deal of the AFL-CIO, America's biggest union organization, which clears the way politically for skeptical Democrats to get on board. In truth, exactly what's in the USMCA is still in flux. Final legislation has yet to reach Congress, though lawmakers are eager to pass a finalized agreement this month. But we do have some idea what it contains. And despite President Trump's of the original NAFTA as "the worst trade deal

1. Awards season is heating up in Hollywood, but campaigns are rarely more grassroots than a recent JetBlue flight, when the pilot — inspired by the pleas of a Jennifer Lopez-loving passenger — got on the intercom and encouraged all the plane's passengers to watch Hustlers during the flight.

Democrats are apparently poised to wrap up their impeachment inquiry, thereof on Tuesday which be voted on later in the week. Sadly, President Trump's off the presidency went unmentioned — the focus is solely on the Ukraine scandal, and how Trump has obstructed the investigation by preventing testimony from his subordinates. Yet Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made an even more inexplicable choice to reveal a major deal with Trump that same day. She that House Democrats have agreed to pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a trade deal to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement — handing Trump a win on his signature policy issue after Democrats released articles of impeachment. It's egregious political malpractice. As I ,

Well, here we are. Impeachment articles against President Trump — one for abuse of power and one for obstruction of justice — and a vote in the House is coming soon. The seems entirely predictable. The Democratic majority in the House will vote "yes" on impeachment and the Republican-controlled Senate will decline to convict. Likewise, the impeachment inquiry has overwhelmingly served to reinforce Americans' previously held opinions about the president. Fully 95 percent of those who came away more convinced of Trump's guilt already thought he was guilty, and an equal 95 percent of those freshly persuaded of his innocence already believed he hasn't done anything impeachable. But here's an interesting thing: In collected by Ipsos and FiveThir.

The articles of impeachment and by House Democrats on Tuesday obviously aim to remove President Trump from office. But the goal apparently doesn't end there. Buried on page five of the resolution is a line that says Trump has shown he also deserves to be disqualified from holding "any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States." Basically, it seeks to banish Trump from any aspect of U.S. political life. That might seem like a given for a president removed from office, but it actually requires a separate Senate majority vote, so this doesn't appear to be something the House Democrats just threw in to make the text sound more dramatic. The language in former President Bill Clinton's articles of impeachment, but not in former Pr.

To no one's surprise, President Trump refused to keep quiet Tuesday after House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment against him. Naturally, the president didn't take too kindly to the news, once again the the proceedings as a "witch hunt." House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) bore the brunt of Trump's criticism, which is hardly a shock. Shifty Schiff, a totally corrupt politician, made up a horrible and fraudulent statement, read it to Congress, and said those words came from me. He got caught, was very embarrassed, yet nothing happened to him for committing this fraud. He’ll eventually have to answer for this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump).
