Pete Buttigieg: 'American Leadership Is Needed Now More Than Ever' 13.9.2019 Crooks Liars
Pete Buttigieg has some great lines in last night's Democratic debate. "The president clearly has no strategy," he said. "You know, when I first got into this race, I remember President Trump scoffed and said he'd like to see me make a deal with (Chinese President) Xi Jinping. Well, I'd like to see him make a deal with Xi Jinping. It's just one more example of a commitment not made," he said. "Is it just me, or was that supposed to happen, like, in April?" He said when things like that trade deal don't happen, adversaries and allies alike take note of the inability of the U.S. to keep its word or follow through on its plans. "And when that happens, there are serious consequences," he said. He mentioned the G7, where at a meeting to talk about the great challenges of climate change, "there was literally an empty chair where American leadership could have been." "The problem is, this is a moment when American leadership is needed more than ever. Whether it's in Hong Kong, where those protesters for ...

A 9/11 Letter From New York City 12.9.2019 Crooks Liars
Many who were in the city on 9/11 haven't recovered, but some adapted to or disassociated from the day. Images, sounds, smells, emotions, loss, fear, and confusion never stop haunting, yet they became part of the background hum. No matter how much a New Yorker who lived through it might say it's behind them — well, it's not. The memories come back in all forms. Oddly, things that weren't funny at the time come to mind. A local television station called "11 Alive" lost its transmitter and the TV signal was stuck on their standard "technical difficulties" still frame. Which was a picture of the trade centers (that looked like an 11) with the perky "11 Alive" logo flying over them. Okay, in hindsight, that's pretty damn funny. Other images are horrific. There were people covered with gray ash, walking up the street like zombies to get home, since there was no other form of transportation or any place to clean off the ashes. Most of them had a long road ahead. And, it seems, within hours, homemade fliers of ...
