Farewell To The Mooch

Professor Kevin Morrell

Whether he did so intentionally or not, the Mooch ended up serving this purpose. A flamboyant series of distractions and excesses, he was the tweet made flesh. Either side of a cataclysmic defeat on health care, the Mooch relentlessly sucked up attention, as well as unsettling those perceived to be disloyal in the Trump camp.

The US Presidential Succession - What If Trump Actually Went?

Would anyone from Trump's world be acceptable given the upheaval that would have happened? Pence is a clever operator and has been very loyal so far, but will do everything he can to ensure that he isn't drawn into the whole mess. However, the all-consuming nature of Donald Trump is unlikely to leave him untarnished.

"I'm not going anywhere," she says. "I have a big stake in what happens in this country. I'm unbowed and unbroken about what happened. I don't want it to happen to anyone else, or to happen to the values or institutions I care about... We're at a very pivotal point, so I'm going to keep writing, and talking, and supporting the people who are on the front lines of the resistance."

With everything else going in Washington, it's worth paying attention to the Court, it's where lasting and seismic change could take place.

President Donald J. Trump And The Will Of The People

After what seems like an eternity since the election, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States this week. Whilst the initial shock of the election result has started to wear off it has been replaced with the smaller, but more frequent shocks of how a Trump Presidency is shaping up.

A Scandal Surrounding Donald Trump Is Quite Different To Scandals Around Other World Leaders

Old Dave - our former PM and possible future Secretary-General of NATO-for all the whining from the Left regarding him, has never had a bunch of women coming out claiming he sexually assaulted them. He has never happily declared to a friend that women would allow him to grab them by the vagina due to his celebrity.

Climate Change: Should Adaptation Be The UK's New Tactic?

We must look at climate change mitigation - all indicators are that we can expect more severe weather and warmer temperatures in the coming decades. But mitigation is no substitute for actually tackling the problem.

Everything You Need To Know About The Frightening Rise And Rise Of The Alt-Right

Both parties have the Governorships of New Jersey and Virginia to fight in November 2017, which often act as an indicator of what will happen in the midterms. These will be the next acts in an unfolding electoral drama.

Five Big Questions For The Next Year

Have a scroll down your twitter timeline and you might find that everyone is still, at worst, professing about the apocalypse, or at best offering election post-mortems based on analysis of pundits who predicted a Hillary cakewalk. Seemingly contrary to popular belief, after Trump's election, the sun did not cease to shine and life has carried on.

How The Information Revolution Delivered Trump To The World

In the long run, the prospect of higher global debt levels, a more imbalanced global economy led by the US and the potential for the inflation genie finally to be leaking out its bottle after eight years of unprecedented monetary stimulus is alarming. The coming bust will be the biggest in human history.

Trump's Victory Shows The Manifestation Of America's Discontent

DONALD Trump's announcement to run for presidency in June 2015 was met largely with laughter and disbelief. Almost 18 months later, his seismic election victory sends shockwaves through America and again causes people to disbelieve- though there are few laughing this time round...

Mrs Clinton Deserves No Pity

Dan Holliday | Posted 10.11.2016 | UK Politics

Mrs Clinton does not deserve pity. Her own record coupled with an ill-deserved sense of entitlement to the top job in US politics was her undoing. A great deal of Americans however, whether they believed in her or otherwise, do deserve pity.

Donald Trump Win Proves Liberals Are Out Of Touch

Like most people today across the globe, I can't think of much else other than the fact that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States. I went to sleep the night before whilst Hillary had a comfortable lead, safe in the knowledge that the Democrats would be elected, everything would make sense and no political hegemony would be smashed that night. Boy was I wrong.

If You Want to Defeat The Donald, Stop Ganging Up On Him

Jan Shure | Posted 24.10.2016 | UK Politics
Jan Shure

Over the course of the 2016 election campaign, Trump seems to have morphed into the living breathing proof of Nietzsche's assertion that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Because despite the most recent outrage dubbed, "Pussy-gate", he is unaccountably still standing.

My Surname Used To Be Trump - Here's Why I Had To Change It

To say that I hate Donald Trump would be something of an understatement. Like lots of people, I am sick of hearing his bile and seeing his smug, plasticine face plastered over front-pages and television screens. Unlike most however, my reasons run a bit deeper... For 32 years, I shared the same name as him.

Alaska: The Republican Party's Last Frontier?

Duncan Kenyon | Posted 17.10.2016 | UK Politics
Duncan Kenyon

In many ways, Alaska is the most likely 'strong Republican' state to swing, purely from a mathematical point of view. If Clinton wins this state, it will send a powerful message to the Republicans that no state - even Sarah Palin's - is safe from the Democrats and make their work leading up to 2020 even more difficult.

Clinton Vs Trump - The Electoral College Is Key, Often Misunderstood And Could Be About To Make A Big Shift

Mark Malcomson CBE

If nothing changes at this point, then Hillary could be heading for a win in the Electoral College on a similar scale as Obama. However, if Trump's share of the vote collapses even more, then she could make a seismic change in the way the map looks and the word "landslide" might come into play.

The next four weeks can be expected to produce more twists, turns and most likely outrages. The process can be described as horrific, but like a horror film or a bad soap-opera it is hard to avert your eyes and I feel we will be transfixed until the end.

On 23 September 2016, US Senator Ted Cruz, one of the most ferocious republican opponents and runner-up of Donald Trump during the Republican primary, announced that he was eventually endorsing him. Why endorsing him so late? Why endorsing him at all?

There have been thousands of articles pumped out over the course of the Democratic primary telling us of the 'dangers' of Bernie Sanders. These articles tend to skim over some key points that I find vital to the decision making of Americans voting in these primaries. Let's break some myths.
