He Predicted a Trump Win in 2016. What’s His Forecast For 2020? | NYT Opinion

Right now, polls say Joe Biden has a healthy lead over President Trump. But we’ve been here before (cue 2016), and the polls were, frankly, wrong. One man, however, was not.

The historian Allan Lichtman was the lonely forecaster who predicted Mr. Trump’s victory in 2016 — and also prophesied the president would be impeached. That’s two for two. But Professor Lichtman’s record goes much deeper.          Continue reading

A Poignant Question Wrongly phrased?

From the selection, the election to the detection—How time has trudged.

Since November 8, 2016 to present, from the studios of Fox News and CNN to the barstools of the local watering hole amateur psychoanalysis has become America’s favourite pastime.  There have been dozens of theories in circulation all geared at answering one question: What is wrong with President elect Donald Trump?  Now it is my firmly held belief that such a question misses the point.

What’s wrong with Donald Trump?  should be appropriately phrased– What’s wrong with US  (us)?     Continue reading

Opinion: Don’t Tell Me Jews Are Safe and Secure in Trump’s America – Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie

Opinion: Don’t Tell Me Jews Are Safe and Secure in Trump’s America

All the scenarios of a truly cornered President Trump signal danger to U.S.A. Jews. But the bigger danger is to America herself

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie | Haaretz

As a Jew, a liberal, and an American patriot, I have had a very bad few weeks.

I believe in my country, her values, and the role that she plays in the world.  And I believe that American greatness has always been dependent on the quality of her leadership.

But where are America’s leaders today? And where are American Jews to turn in an era of moral blindness and of a deep and growing despair among so many Americans?

The problem of leadership begins, of course, at the top.  Not even five months into his term, President Trump continues to crank up his nativist and chauvinist appeals. Those who hoped his crudity and egotism would be restrained by high office have been profoundly disillusioned.    Continue reading

Can Donald Trump be Impeached? By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The White House is in crisis. President Trump’s tweet might help to explain why his administration is spiraling out of control. His message in December 2016 was: ‘Happy New Year to all, including my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love.’

On August 16, 1971 H.R. Haldeman, the assistant Chief of Staff to President Nixon said in a memorandum that, ‘we have to maximize our incumbency in dealing with persons known to be in the opposition; stated bluntly- how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies.’ Did Trump read this memo?     Continue reading

Friends:

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years:“PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Never in my life have I wanted to be proven wrong more than I do right now.  Continue reading
