Trump Vs. Comey: Imprudence or conspiracy?

 05/17/2017 - 14:25
The House Intelligence Committee on May 16, 2017, requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) all documents that its former director James Comey elaborated on his talks with President Donald Trump. This request comes after The New York Times revealed the existence of documents produced by Comey in order to document his conversations with Trump. EFE / Michael Reynolds / Shawn Thew.

Following statements by former FBI Director James Comey about the existence of memoranda stating President Trump's attempt to intervene in an official investigation into the law, the question arises as to whether the President would be guilty of recklessness or whether there is indeed a conspiracy between his closest advisers and Russia’s government.

Philly Grows Into Its Anarchist Shoe

Wooden Shoe es una librería que encierra una atmósfera distinta a la de otros establecimientos dedicados a la venta de libros, aquí el enfoque es colaborativo y político. La librería está ubicada en el 704 South Street.  Foto Archivo Particular.

Past a chalkboard that says, “Come inside to read a good book,” on one side and “Don’t be an asshole!” on the other, you come across a tattered SEPTA Union Strike poster from the early twentieth century, preserved underneath an equally withered-away lamination. A few cautious inches deep inside of this surreal time machine, a pillar manages to stand from the 1890s home of an anarchist feminist writer and speaker who lived near Drexel University.

Dejando atrás una pizarra en la que se lee a un lado “Entre y lea un buen libro” y “¡No sea estúpido!” en el otro, me encuentro con un poster viejo y andrajoso de una huelga convocada por el sindicato de la SEPTA a principios del siglo pasado, conservado gracias a un laminado igualmente marchito. A unos pocos centímetros de esta máquina del tiempo surrealista, topo con una columna de una casa de 1890 en la que en su día vivió una conocida escritora anarquista y feminista, cerca de la Universidad Drexel.

We do not yet have the official agenda for next month’s meeting at Mar-a-Lago between Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping. But after 75 years of American leadership on the world stage, we might be watching the beginning of a handover of power from the United States to China.

[OP-ED]: Helping kids handle the ‘Trump Effect’ in our nation’s schools

 01/24/2017 - 14:13

In North Carolina, a high school teacher said she has “Latino students who carry their birth certificates and Social Security cards to school because they are afraid they will be deported.”
 

A new study by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights advocacy organization, says that more than two-thirds of 2,000 teachers surveyed reported students -- mainly immigrants, children of immigrants and Muslims -- expressing concerns or fears about what might happen to them or their families during a Trump presidency.

Since the election, more than half of teachers have seen an increase in uncivil political discourse in their schools or classrooms, and more than one-third report having observed an increase in anti-Muslim or anti-immigrant sentiment.
