Under Trump groups of workers who would previously have been unlikely
to feel shop-floor militancy have taken to workplace organizing,
realizing that the power they have is rooted in their ability to
refuse to work.

A group of fundamentalist religious leaders with ties to the White
House expanded their ministries in Latin America and made deals with
presidents with checkered records in Nicaragua, Guatemala and
Honduras.

The fake account appeared on Saturday to coincide with a rally by
far-right groups in Portland, Oregon—where clashes with
counter-protesters were anticipated and did happen—in an apparent
bid to incite and heighten violence.

For 20 years now, the Arab-Hebrew Theatre in Jaffa has defied all
conflicts and wars. It is an extraordinary institution in a country
where equal co-existence is not a matter of course. "It's the only
theatre where there's genuine co-operation between Jews and Arabs,"
says director Igal Ezrati with evident pride.

Evangelicals view Trump as their protector. Will they stand by him in

Universal canceled the film’s release in the wake of a series of
mass shootings and amid a mounting conservative backlash. The film
depicts a group of elites who hunt “deplorables” for sport. Fox
News commentators have condemned it as “sick” and “awful.”
