In America, we are in a record eighth year of economic growth, bringing peak employment and finally a bump in earnings. Crime rates are at historic lows and keep declining in ways that simply baffle criminologists.
More people live in democracies today than a dozen years ago.
At the time, though, many on the left were in favor of merit-based immigration laws, precisely because they would replace the racist quotas embedded in the hugely restrictionist 1924 law, and allow for people to be admitted based on their abilities rather than on their country of origin.
What Tom Cotton and the Republican right now support is what liberals once believed in, and vice versa.
Wolff claims that White House source he talked to believes Trump is “incapable of functioning in his job.” We have heard these claims about presidents before — but usually from the opposition, not from the White House itself, let alone unanimously.
But Wolff’s piece in yesterday also confirmed what is obvious about Trump’s fast-eroding mental health: “Everybody was painfully aware of the increasing pace of his repetitions.
We have seen no brutal “law and order” police crackdown — in fact, we have proof that we don’t need stop-and-frisk at all, and the number of unarmed African-Americans shot dead by the cops has been halved in two years. We have not seen new tariffs on trade with China, beyond the limits of previous presidents. Democrats lead Republicans in the generic congressional polls by double digits. There may even be hope that the confirmation of everyone’s darkest fears about this president’s functionality may at some point break through, and perhaps after a drubbing in the fall elections, the GOP might even begin to reassess its reckless gamble.
The Iran nuclear deal still stands; ditto NAFTA; so too the Paris climate accord — despite the U. Established media — like the New York — are seeing huge gains in digital subscriptions. Terror attacks have not prompted massive overreaction, as many of us feared. No, I’m not optimistic about this, but hope flickers in the distance.
And Trump’s very incompetence is also a calming factor. There has been no deportation force and, given good news on border crossings, it appears we don’t need one. Just because a drunk driver hasn’t crashed for a quarter of his journey home carries no assurance that catastrophe isn’t still eminently possible.
The president has not defied a court order, and the Mueller investigation into potential treason during the campaign remains active. Attorneys in California actually deciding to go to war with a multimillion-dollar industry backed by a clear majority of voters, and serious pushback is already coming from Republicans in legal weed states. In an era in which fentanyl is killing tens of thousands, a fixation on cannabis seems close to insane, when it isn’t completely irrelevant. But it seems possible, after a year of this insanity, to entertain some measure of hope that it will some day be over, and the country and the world not irrevocably damaged in the process.
When natural disasters happen, they kill fewer people in a far more populous world.
The last decade has seen the biggest decline in global poverty ever. All this renders the collapse of the American presidency more tolerable.
Yet even now, this utterly reckless nuclear brinksmanship, combined with simply unhinged behavior, is not considered sufficient to invoke the 25th Amendment.
