[OP-ED]: La madre de todos los ‘blufs’

Afortunadamente, no es solo el pánico lo que se expande, también lo hace la resistencia, que cada día crece y se fortalece. Y eso es muy bueno.
Spanish

Sí, eso es lo que retórica recalentada de Washington sobre Corea del Norte –a la que el país asiático responde en tonos igualmente belicosos – es en realidad: una sucia guerra de palabras. Pero puede estar seguro de que no están a punto de intercambiarse balas, cohetes, la madre de todas las bombas y mucho menos armas atómicas. Lo cual, por supuesto, es muy bueno.

[OP-ED]: On sanctuary cities, conservatives are driven to distortion

Thousands of undocumented students covered by the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) claim during Dallas' "Megamarch 2017" more security for themselves and their families, who feel "continually threatened" By the strong immigration rhetoric of the president of the United States, Republican Donald Trump.

 Retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz would tell his students the oft-repeated secret to good lawyering. 

“When the law is on your side,” Dershowitz would say, “pound the law into the table. When the facts are on your side, pound the facts into the table. And when neither the law nor the facts are on your side, just pound the table.”

 Alan Dershowitz, profesor jubilado de la Escuela de Derecho de Harvard, solía contar a sus estudiantes el secreto, a menudo repetido, de un buen abogado. 

“Cuando la ley está de tu parte”, decía Dershowitz, “golpea la mesa con la ley. Cuando los hechos están de tu lado, golpea la mesa con los hechos. Y cuando ni la ley ni los hechos están de tu lado, sólo golpea la mesa.”
