How to have an argument with a right-wing Trump defender

In his new book “The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West,” Ben Shapiro argues that reason is essential to the advancement of human progress. The 35-year-old conservative commentator has positioned himself as something of a latter-day William F. Buckley Jr. — an intellectual superstar in a quadrant of politics that seems increasingly resistant to facts or rational inquiry. Shapiro has denounced white supremacists and the alt-right, and distanced himself from President Trump (much as Buckley denounced the John Birch Society and other right-wing extremists of his day), while frequently calling upon the venerable classical and biblical Western thinkers.Shapiro has also frequently discussed occasions when he has been threatened or faced what he describes as efforts to silence him, especially on college campuses. In a society with a healthy culture of free speech, of course, Shapiro would be able to argue his points as fearlessly as he wants, without the specter of violence or being otherwise persecuted.

Well now

Trump’s Fed pick Stephen Moore was held in contempt of court over $300K alimony and child support debt: report

President Donald Trump’s pick for the Federal Reserve Board was held in contempt of court in 2012 over failure to pay more than $300,000 in alimony and child support.

The Guardian reported Saturday that court documents show Stephen Moore, a conservative economist recently nominated by the president to serve on the board of the Federal Reserve after penning a flattering column, owed the money to his ex-wife Allison Moore in the wake of their divorce.

Rep. Justin Amash considers Libertarian challenge to Trump

The Libertarian Party has urged Rep. Justin Amash to consider mounting a third-party challenge to President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

The Michigan Republican told his hometown paper that while he would not “rule out” a bid, he has not completely “thought through” his plans.

Great!

Democrats are taking a page out of Trump’s playbook to blow him out of the water in 2020

Democrats looking to not only win their party’s presidential nomination, but unseat President Donald Trump, are stealing a page from his 2016 playbook to fight fire with fire in 2020, reports Politico.

Noting the changing nature of how the public receives information — with social media leading the way — some Democratic contenders are ceding more power to their digital directors in an effort to reach more voters.

Warner Bros. Shut Down Trump’s 2020 Video For Using The “Dark Knight Rises” Score

President Donald Trump on Tuesday posted a video on Twitter that appeared to be part of his 2020 reelection campaign. In less than three hours, it had already amassed over 1 million views, but by late Tuesday night, the video was no longer available.

BuzzFeed News has learned that Warner Bros. Pictures filed a copyright infringement complaint to have the video taken down because it uses part of the score from the studio's 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises.

Nancy Pelosi reveals her secret to predicting whether Trump and the GOP will go down in 2020

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has revealed how she plans to ensure sweeping Democratic wins in 2020 — and her simple metric for predicting their chances a year ahead of time.

Roll Call reported that during an annual retreat, Pelosi told fellow Democrats that she can “predict how well we will do in an election one year in advance because one year in advance is where you see where the president of the party is,”

Bill Weld officially announces he is challenging Trump for GOP nomination in 2020

(CNN) Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld announced Monday he is officially entering the race for president, becoming the first Republican to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 race.

"Ours is a nation built on courage, resilience, and independence. In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their 'win at all cost' battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering," Weld, who had previously formed an exploratory committee, said in a statement.
