Trump Has Broken the Republican Party—and Conservatism—for Good - The Bulwark
We have now reached the terminus of craven loyalty and pathetic apologetics. I don’t see how either the political institution of the Republican party or the intellectual movement of conservatism recovers from what we have seen over the last three years—but especially the last three months.

Weaponizing Ilhan Omar has become Trump's re-election strategy | US news | The Guardian
The chants of “send her back” reverberated across the rally of thousands on Wednesday as Donald Trump stood at the podium and attacked Representative Ilhan Omar, a naturalized US citizen who arrived in the country as a teenager after her family fled Somalia.

It was not the first time Trump had sought to vilify Omar, who in November became one of the first two Muslim women elected to the US Congress and has emerged as a key target of the president and Republicans.

US House condemns Trump attacks on congresswomen as racist - BBC News
The US House of Representatives has voted to condemn President Donald Trump after a series of attacks aimed at four congresswomen.

The symbolic resolution denounced Mr Trump's "racist comments that have legitimised fear and hatred of New Americans and people of colour".

Mr Trump had been accused of racism and xenophobia for telling the members of congress to leave the country.

The president has since tweeted: "I don't have a Racist bone in my body!"

Tuesday's debate in the Democratic-controlled chamber was a highly polarised debate, with various Republicans insisting the vote itself was a breach of decorum.

It passed by 240 votes to 187.

EU und Mercosur: Warum Jair Bolsonaro plötzlich für den Freihandel ist - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Dabei hatte kaum jemand mehr so richtig daran geglaubt, dass sich die Parteien dies- und jenseits des Atlantiks nochmal zusammenfinden. Aber plötzlich zeigten vor allem die Big Player Argentinien und Brasilien ungewohnte Einigkeit und machten so das Freihandelsabkommen möglich. Der Einigungswille ist politischem Kalkül und den jeweiligen nationalen Nöten geschuldet, aber auch der Einsicht, dass man sich auf dem Wüterich im Weißen Haus nicht verlassen kann.

Selbst Brasiliens rechtsradikaler Staatschef Jair Bolsonaro geht vorsichtig auf Distanz zu den USA und Donald Trump. So ist das Abkommen auch ein klares Zeichen aus Lateinamerika an den US-Präsidenten, der die Nafta mit Mexiko und Kanada aufgekündigt und dem Nachbarn neue Konditionen aufgedrückt hat. Die Region will weiter offene Märkte und faire Konditionen.

Umweltschützer warnen schon jetzt: Die neuen Absatzmärkte für Fleisch- und Sojaexporte könnten zur Folge haben, dass die Weide- und Anbauflächen erweitert werden - und dafür der Regenwald im Amazonas dran glauben muss.

Trump administration rule could hurt trans patients - Vox
The new rule, proposed last week, rolls back protections instituted by the Obama administration, which in 2016 released rules barring health care workers and insurance companies from discriminating against patients on the basis of gender identity. By getting rid of those protections, the Trump administration rule would allow doctors to refuse to provide transition-related care — or to refuse to see transgender patients at all, even for routine care like flu shots.

US-China trade war: Shoe giants urge Trump to end tariffs - BBC News
Nike and Adidas call for end to US-China trade war


Some 173 companies, including the footwear giants Nike and Adidas, have written to US President Donald Trump to urge him to reverse his decision to raise tariffs to 25% on Chinese goods worth $200bn (£157.3bn). They call the move "unfathomable", arguing it will hit working-class consumers hard. Mr Trump has told firms they should make more of their goods in the US. So who loses out as a result of the trade war?

Last year, Huawei released a list of its core suppliers and it included 33 US companies. As well as Google having to pull back on supplying its version of Android, major US technology suppliers including Xilinx, Qualcomm, Broadcom and Intel have all warned they will need to stop selling their technology to Huawei in order to comply with the ban.

NeoPhotonics, a San Jose-based firm which makes networking equipment, has a contract with Huawei that represents 44% of its entire revenue.

Inequality driving 'deaths of despair' - BBC News
there is income inequality
there is health inequality (air)
there is political inequality, your voice only heard when you have money to donate and can pay lobbyists.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YmdzgJAMxk

Widening inequalities in pay, health and opportunities in the UK are undermining trust in democracy, says an Institute for Fiscal Studies report. [...] The think tank warns of runaway incomes for high earners but rises in "deaths of despair", such as from addiction and suicide, among the poorest.

It warns of risks to "centre-ground" politics from stagnating pay and divides in health and education.

The report says such widening gaps are "making a mockery of democracy".

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), one of the country's leading research institutes, is launching what it says is the UK's biggest analysis of inequality.

That will be chaired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Prof Sir Angus Deaton.

‘We've dug ourselves a really deep hole’ – David Neiwert on the rise of the far right | World news | The Guardian
Nostalgia
“I mean, Trump’s all about ‘make America great again’. It’s this idea that this American exceptionalism will never die. And it has to die,” he says. He looks out of his window once more, over a neighbourhood partly buried under the glass, steel and concrete of the gentrifiers.

“It has to die because it’s killing us.”

Unpaid TSA screeners shouldn’t fear the infamous air traffic controllers union precedent.
Last Monday, I wrote that if any group of government employees could end the shutdown, it would be the 44,000 TSA screeners who keep the nation’s airports running. The next day, Washington Post reporter Robert Costa wrote that GOP lawmakers see a TSA walkout as Trump’s Achilles’ heel—the one factor that could force the president to back down from his demand that lawmakers fund a border wall. [...] President Ronald Reagan ordered them back to work within 48 hours. On Aug. 5, he fired the 11,500 controllers who had not returned to their jobs and banned them from federal employment for life. Airline travel was disrupted for weeks, but there were no accidents. The union was dismantled. Many of the controllers never recovered. It was a defining moment for Reagan and cowed the American labor movement for decades to come.
