Cambridge Analytica, the shady data firm that might be a key Trump-Russia link, explained

By Sean Illing Why House investigators think this company might have helped Russia spread fake news. The Daily Beast reported last week that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is looking into a data analytics company called Cambridge Analytica as part of its investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election. Cambridge Analytica specializes in what's called “psychographic” profiling, meaning they use data collected online to create personality profiles for voters. They then take that information and target individuals with specifically tailored content (more on this below). According to the Daily Beast report, ...

Playing Politics With Families of the Fallen

By Carl M. Cannon The United States of America was not yet a country when our first commander-in-chief paid his respects to a fallen hero. In August 1775, Gen. George Washington visited a Boston area field hospital where William Simpson, a Continental Army rifleman from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, lay mortally wounded. A British cannon ball had destroyed Simpson's foot. His leg was amputated and he died the following day. But in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Gen. Washington started a tradition that continues to this day. Whether it survives Donald Trump's presidency is another question. On Monday,... ...read more Read more here: Playing ...

The General Shames the Briefing Room

By Debra Saunders WASHINGTON -- Since retired Gen. John Kelly became White House chief of staff, news outlets have portrayed him as the disciplinarian sent to impose order over an unruly President Donald Trump. Kelly rejects that scenario -- when it comes to taming, he has other fish to fry. To wit, at Thursday's press briefing, Kelly tongue-lashed the usually feisty White House press corps so relentlessly that in 18 minutes he reduced the usually swaggering scribes and talking heads into shamed silence. After Kelly slammed reporters for taking a "sacred" moment -- the notification of family when a military ...

Anti-immigrant forces gain ground in Europe

Anti-immigrant forces gain ground in Europe

By kodonnell@politico.com (Katy O'Donnell) Czechs this weekend elected a new prime minister who heaps scorn on the European Union and says his country shouldn't have to accept a single refugee. Germany just sent a radical far-right party to parliament for the first time since the days of Adolf Hitler. And Austrians last weekend gave the anti-immigrant Freedom Party their biggest share of the vote since 1999.Those three elections in the past month are just the latest to upend the European political order by elevating anti-establishment populists. Nationalist parties now have a toehold everywhere from Italy to Finland, raising fears the ...

Can Trump stay on track on tax reform?

Can Trump stay on track on tax reform?

By alorenzo@politico.com (Aaron Lorenzo) Congressional Republicans are readying themselves for a new obstacle on tax reform: President Donald Trump and his penchant for disruptions. There's no doubt that Trump badly wants a tax deal, and he appears very willing to travel the country in support of one. But the GOP lawmakers that are crafting the tax measure are also bracing themselves for the president to potentially disturb their negotiations at any moment, as he has done throughout his nine months in office and this week on a bipartisan Senate agreement to shore up Obamacare insurance markets.“Sure, it's going to come,” ...

Bush a “piece of work” and said “there has not been a more destructive presidency than George Bush's.” As for another Republican who once led the party ticket, Sen ...
