Many people expected Prime Minister Narendra Modi's landslide re-election victory this summer to spell trouble for India's pluralistic democracy. But few appreciated just how much trouble. This week, in two days flat, the Modi government through both chambers of parliament the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB). This law uses a good cause as a Trojan horse to advance a radical faith-cleansing agenda that has more than a passing similarity with the shocking policies that China has deployed against its minority. On the surface, CAB is a mass amnesty bill of the kind that pro-immigration advocates in America can't even dream of. It amends India's Citizenship Act to hand expedited citizenship — not mere legal status — to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists,

House Democrats with President Trump earlier this week to pass a revised version of the North American Free Trade agreement. Centrist Democrats and House leadership under Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) they needed to "show that we can do something," as Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) put it. Meanwhile, the Democrats' progressive flank that the party handed Trump a win even as it tries to hammer the message that the president is a dire threat to American democracy. But all of this raises the question: Will passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) actually help Trump's re-election chances? Of course, there is a somewhat parallel question about whether or not the Democrats muddled their message on impeachment by announcing an accord wi.

1. The Federal Reserve announced Wednesday it would after cutting them by a quarter-point in three previous meetings. It was the Fed's first unanimous decision since May. The central bank's policy makers said they planned to continue monitoring risks related to trade tensions and a global economic slowdown. "The committee judges that the current stance of monetary policy is appropriate to support sustained expansion of economic activity," officials said in their policy statement, which The Wall Street Journal characterized as "optimistic." The sense is that things will remain stagnant for some time, and Fed Chair Jerome Powell didn't signal that, despite all those previous cuts, any hikes were expected in the near future. []. 2.

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is under scrutiny for his stint working for the consulting firm McKinsey — perhaps because his record is so short that there is little else to discuss. After weeks of stonewalling, claiming he couldn't discuss details because he had signed a non-disclosure agreement, Buttigieg finally released about his years at the company. He apparently did cost-cutting for a health insurer, price analysis for a grocery store chain, a study on energy efficiency for the EPA and several nonprofits, and something in 2009 for the U.S. government in Iraq and Afghanistan to increase "employment and entrepreneurship in those countries' economies." (I for one would like to hear more about that last one.). Yet the details o.

It is time for progressive Democrats to prepare for the possibility of a Joe Biden presidency — and for that presidency to last just four short years. Why? Because that's apparently is what Biden himself is doing. Politico on Wednesday the former vice president is "quietly" signalling to aides he would serve only a single term, if elected, in part to mollify young lefty voters who seem unenthusiastic about his campaign. "If Biden is elected, he's going to be 82 years old in four years and he won't be running for re-election," an unidentified campaign adviser said. Biden the story, but a denial would be . And there is a precedent for such a move — Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) won the House speakership earlier this year based, in part, on a t.

The long-awaited on the FBI's probe of the 2016 election finally emerged this week. Unfortunately, the long-awaited reckoning with reality by both parties and the national media will have to wait a little longer. In the hyperpartisan environment surrounding the impeachment of President Trump, most mined IG Michael Horowitz' detailed and damning report for the few nuggets that bolstered their own point of view and conveniently overlooked the rest. Predictably, Horowitz' report showed that "they spied on my campaign," even though the report noted that the FBI had not used confidential human resources on his campaign. FBI director Christopher Wray that the report vindicated the FBI from political bias and only reflected "serious performance fa.

It's difficult to remember who Tom Steyer is. The answer, if your memory needs a jog as much as mine, is a billionaire finance guy who numbers among the infinity Democratic candidates hoping to challenge President Trump in 2020. Since announcing his campaign in early July, Steyer has steadily outspent the rest of the Democratic primary field on television ad buys. In fact, until mid-November, he consistently spent more than all the other candidates combined. To date, FiveThirtyEight Steyer has dropped around $46 million on TV ads. And yet, per the RealClearPolitics , he is polling at all of 1.7 percent. With numbers like that, does campaign cash matter anymore? Conventional wisdom, especially in the post- Citizens United era, holds that acc.

For about 15 minutes a few years ago, being an was kind of a thing. Some GOPers hoped that by associating themselves with the Silicon Valley unicorn that was disrupting the taxicab industry, they could freshly rebrand themselves as a techy, millennial-oriented party. Uber Republicans claimed to love dynamic markets, embraced the sharing economy, and were ready to disrupt the political status quo in Washington. Clearly the technophobic and economically nostalgic Donald Trump wasn't the sort of disrupter that the Uber Republicans were envisioning. Still, Trump supporters today frequently call him a "disrupter" who's totally changing how things are done in the nation's capital. And there's some truth there. Trump has certainly disrupted numero.

1. Since Anne Hathaway announced she was pregnant in July, gossip columnists who apparently don't understand the broad strokes of a pregnancy timeline have wondered: When is that baby coming? Blessedly, we may finally have our answer. Several tabloids, which have eagerly been trying to sleuth out whether Hathaway quietly gave birth sometime last month, seem to have found a smoking gun: Hathaway and her husband Adam Shulman walking around in a park with an infant car seat, which is a weird thing to carry if you don't have an infant. Meanwhile, the rest of us non-weirdos can look forward to seeing Hathaway's new baby whenever she and her husband decide to announce it. []. 2. Walking the red carpet is an undoubtedly bizarre experience, with doz.

The Federal Reserve is satisfied for now. The Fed on Wednesday decided to hold interest rates steady after slashing them in their three previous meetings.

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.
