          We Knew Julian Assange Hated Clinton. We Didn’t Know He Was Secretly Advising Trump.
    
          November 16, 2017
    
          WikiLEaks offer to help Trump came less than two weeks after The Washington Post had revealed that Trump had boasted of sexual assault in comments recorded during the taping of an “Access Hollywood” episode in 2005. The recording caught Trump saying that, “when you’re a star,” you can “do anything” to women, even “grab them by the pussy.” WikiLeaks released its first batch of emails hacked from Clinton’s campaign less than an hour after that report was published.

          Punishing Dissent in the Age of Trump: What’s in a Riot?
    
          November 16, 2017
    
          Defendants are facing over 60 years in prison. Trials for the inauguration protesters begin mid-November and will continue for a year. As media ramps up coverage, do not forget what these trials are about—not rioting, not broken windows, but punishing dissent.

          House Republicans Pass Bill that Would Raise Taxes on Middle Class Families
    
          November 16, 2017
    
          Overwhelming analysis shows the tax plan does very little to help middle income families. The non-partisan Tax Policy Center found that after the tax plan has taken full effect in 2027, 80 percent of the benefits would go to the top 1 percent.

          November 16, 2017
    
          This is not “democracy promotion," it is regime change, by any means necessary.

          Weinsteins in the Workplace: Will Unions Be Part of the Solution Or the Problem?
    
          November 16, 2017
    
          It takes continuous organizational effort—in the form of training and recruitment, new leadership development, and structural change–to insure that the bullying, harassing, divide-and-conquer behavior of bosses, big and small, doesn’t infect and weaken the “house of labor” too.

          Trump's Itchy, Twitchy Finger
    
          November 16, 2017
    
          Focusing mainly on Trump's first year in office, the authors emphasize what they call a pattern of systematic reaction, where growing voter frustration regularly drives each party in and out of control. Trump arrived with scant political capital, amassed little and appears to have no strategic competence going forward. While the authors believe Trump can develop one, the essayist faults the authors for offering nothing but wishfulness to back up the assumption.
