This Children's Workbook Teaches Girls About Iconic Women In Politics​ 26.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
If you’re old enough to be learning to write, you’re old enough to be learning how to make a difference.  Since women are still underrepresented in politics, nonprofit Ignite National  provides education and training to high-school and college-aged women who are interested in running for political office. To that end, they’ve recently created the “ Writing Our Rights ” workbook to help foster political ambition in girls while they practice their handwriting. Gorgeously illustrated with portraits of iconic political women, each page contains excerpts from speeches by Shirley Chisholm, Hillary Clinton, Tammy Duckworth and Sandra Day O’Connor, among others.  The pages are perforated so that the inspiring quotes, such as Hillary Clinton’s “Women’s rights are human rights,” can be torn out and used as posters. The book also contains blank pages for the user’s own words.   “We believe that introduction to leadership at a young age is as a fundamental as learning to write,” said Anne Moses, Founder & President ...

Why Trump’s Wars Should Seem So Familiar 24.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Cross-posted with TomDispatch.com MOAB sounds more like an incestuous , war-torn biblical kingdom than the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast, aka “the mother of all bombs.”  Still, give Donald Trump credit.  Only the really, really big bombs, whether North Korean nukes or those 21,600 pounds of MOAB, truly get his attention.  He wasn’t even involved in the decision to drop the largest non-nuclear bomb in the U.S. arsenal for the first time in war, but his beloved generals ― “we have the best military people on Earth” ― already know the man they work for, and the bigger, flashier, more explosive, and winninger, the better. It was undoubtedly the awesome look of that first MOAB going off in grainy black and white on Fox News, rather than in Afghanistan, that appealed to the president.  Just as he was visibly thrilled by all those picturesque Tomahawk cruise missiles, the equivalent of nearly three MOABS, whooshing from the decks of U.S. destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean and heading, like so many ...

North Korea, With Characteristic Bluster, Threatens To Sink U.S. Aircraft Carrier 23.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
SEOUL, April 23 (Reuters) - North Korea said on Sunday it was ready to sink a U.S. aircraft carrier to demonstrate its military might, as two Japanese navy ships joined a U.S. carrier group for exercises in the western Pacific. U.S. President Donald Trump ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to sail to waters off the Korean peninsula in response to rising tension over the North’s nuclear and missile tests, and its threats to attack the United States and its Asian allies. The United States has not specified where the carrier strike group is as it approaches the area. U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday it would arrive “within days” but gave no other details. North Korea remained defiant. “Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,” the Rodong Sinmun, the newspaper of the North’s ruling Workers’ Party, said in a commentary. The paper likened the aircraft carrier to a “gross animal” and said a strike on it would be ...

Presidential Approval Ratings Are More Partisan Than Ever 21.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
President Trump’s first-quarter approval ratings set a depressing new record. Forty percent of Americans say they doubt anything could change their minds about the president. And support for marijuana legalization is, well, higher than ever. This is HuffPollster for Friday, April 21, 2017. GALLUP GIVES TRUMP HISTORICALLY LOW FIRST-QUARTER RATINGS - HuffPollster: “President Donald Trump received substantially worse ratings for his initial months in office than any other president elected to his first term since World War II, according to Gallup. Even presidents who’ve gone on to be unpopular generally enjoyed high ratings during their first months in office. But Trump’s average rating since Inauguration Day is just 41 percent, Gallup finds , making him the only president in their polling history to fall short of majority approval during his first quarter. Former President Bill Clinton, the next-lowest ranked, had an average approval rating of 55 percent for that time period, while former Presidents Barack ...

Poll: Trump’s First-Quarter Ratings Lowest For A President Since WWII 21.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
President Donald Trump received substantially worse ratings for his first months in office than any president dating back to World War II, according to Gallup. Even presidents who’ve gone on to be unpopular generally enjoyed high ratings during their first months in office. But Trump’s average rating since Inauguration Day is just 41 percent, according to Gallup, making him the only president in their polling history to fall short of majority approval during his first quarter. Former President Bill Clinton, the next-lowest ranked, had an average approval rating of 55 percent for that time period, while former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush enjoyed first quarter ratings of 63 percent and 58 percent, respectively.  What sets Trump apart isn’t a lack of support from his own party. About 87 percent of Republicans approve of his performance, several points above the average for previous presidents and similar to the numbers Obama and Bush saw at this point in their presidencies. Rather, Trump’s ...

Someone Sent Prominent Muslim Group A Quran Page Covered In What Looks Like Feces 18.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Washington, D.C., police said Monday they were investigating a disturbing package sent to the office of the nation’s largest Muslim civil liberties group that included a soiled page ripped from the Quran.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations said a page from an English translation of the Quran was smeared with a “foreign substance” that appears to be feces. Also enclosed was a racist letter portraying former President Barack Obama as a monkey.  Warning: graphic photo below.  Officer Sean Hickman, spokesman for Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department, said police were investigating.   CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told The Huffington Post the fake return address was for Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), though it didn’t include his name.  “It’s often what these people do,” Hooper said of those who send hate mail to the group. “They put the return address of someone who is sympathetic to Muslims,” like Conyers.  In 2005, Conyers introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives “condemning ...

Trump Urges Twitter Followers To Read A Completely Blank Book 17.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
On Monday, at 8:13 a.m., President Donald Trump published a surprising tweet. Surprising for two reasons, in fact: Firstly, it recommended a book of “Reasons to Vote for Democrats” to his followers, and secondly, it recommended a book . Had the president been hacked? What could account for such an uncharacteristic tweet? Not to worry ― it all makes complete sense. Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide by Michael J. Knowles is neither pro-Democrat nor, in the traditional sense, a book. It’s a 266-page volume filled with empty pages. (Get it? There are no reasons to vote for Democrats!) A great book for your reading enjoyment: "REASONS TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS" by Michael J. Knowles. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 17, 2017 Knowles, who brought out Reasons to Vote for Democrats in February, is hardly the first to use this old gag ― even in this election cycle. For example, back in November, Why Trump Deserves Trust, Respect and Admiration  by David King became available on ...

Another GOPer Has Compared Planned Parenthood To Nazi Germany 17.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
An Ohio state representative has unpublished her Facebook page after comparing Planned Parenthood to Nazi Germany ― and she’s the  second member of the GOP to make such a comparison in the last month.  Middletown-based state Rep.  Candice Keller , who represents Ohio’s 53rd District, posted a meme on her official Facebook page Thursday. “One day we will look at this,” the image reads, with an arrow pointing to the Planned Parenthood logo, “the same way we look back at this” ― with an arrow pointing to a Nazi flag.  Keller captioned the meme with one word, “This,” implying her agreement with its message.  Many on Twitter were quick to react and call for Ohioans to “vote her out.” Ohio Rep Candice Keller thinks Planned Parenthood is comparable to the Nazis. Look at these despicable posts & vote her out. @VoteCandice16 pic.twitter.com/d57nOJULpx — Robin Beth Schaer (@robinschaer) April 15, 2017 This is a post that Candice Keller, Ohio State Rep for the 53rd District made earlier today, then taken down ...

Hiring Anti-Trump Conservative Is Part Of New York Times' Effort To Expand Opinion 15.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
The New York Times’ decision to hire Bret Stephens, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal columnist, is part of a larger effort to “further widen” the range of views the paper presents to readers, James Bennet, the paper’s editorial page editor, told The Huffington Post Friday. Long a conventional conservative columnist, Stephens emerged during the 2016 campaign as liberals’ favorite writer on the right. As other conservatives lined up behind Donald Trump, Stephens wrote blistering columns in the opinion pages of Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal lambasting the Republican presidential nominee. He feuded with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Twitter. And unlike some NeverTrumpers, he still hasn’t come around to the president. That won him praise to his left — including from Bennet, who said Stephens “demonstrated his guts,” as some other conservative writers were dropping “their principles to accommodate the radically unorthodox politics of Donald Trump.” But liberal Times readers who ...

Former Trump Adviser Carter Page Can't Remember If He Discussed Sanctions With Russia 13.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page on Thursday could not say definitively whether he spoke to Russian officials during Donald Trump’s presidential campaign last year about the possibility of easing U.S. sanctions against Russia. “Absolutely not,” Page said initially, when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. But Page, who has repeatedly changed his tune on the extent of his ties to Russia , then claimed that he could not recall. “I don’t remember. We’ll see what comes out in this [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] transcript. I don’t recall every single word that I ever said. But I would never make any offer or intimate anything,” he said. “Something may have come up in a conversation. I have no recollection, and there’s nothing specifically that I would have done that would have given people that impression.” When Stephanopoulos pressed him on why he could not give a definitive answer, Page again said that he could not remember. “Someone may have brought it up. I have no ...

When Being Truly Audience-First Means Giving Content A Back Seat 11.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Welcome to HuffPost’s Keeping It 100. From infusing our culture with data to figuring out how to reach Gen Z and cultivate niche distributed communities, we’ll give you an inside look at the hits and misses of HuffPost’s biggest bets.  Over the past year, HuffPost has transitioned from a content-first organization to an audience-first one ― zeroing in on who we’re serving at every step of the editorial process. Our latest experiment took this one step further, going so audience-first that content creation wasn’t even a part of the road map for the first few months. To truly be 100 percent audience-first, we decided to invest in niche Facebook communities as appendages of the HuffPost brand. The pages wouldn’t push HuffPost content or even bear the HuffPost name. Here’s how it went...  THE OBJECTIVE Develop niche non-HuffPost branded Facebook pages for underserved communities with the long-term goal of serving mission-aligned HuffPost content to an incredibly engaged audience.

The Making Of HuffPost's Most Successful Trump Story 11.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Welcome to HuffPost’s Keeping It 100. From infusing our culture with data to figuring out how to reach Gen Z and cultivate niche distributed communities, we’ll give you an inside look at the hits and misses of HuffPost’s biggest bets.  We live in a world of commoditized news. That’s not new. But during an election that took this to an extreme, standing out became an essential part of every publisher’s social distribution strategy. For HuffPost, this required an audience-first, rather than a content-first, approach: consciously crafting stories with angles our audience cares most about.  That strategy paid off, and was nowhere more evident than with our most-read piece about President Donald Trump.   When Trump signed a pro-abortion executive order  in January, senior political reporter and politics managing editor Amanda Terkel initially co-bylined a straightforward news report. But an hour later, she decided to follow it up with another piece,  zeroing in on how Trump was surrounded by white men  when ...
