It is therefore an accusation which strengthens actual fascists, as it puts them in a positive light. (See an article by Michael Lesher) Zionists accuse people of antisemitism in order to silence resistance to Israeli crimes. At a time in which fascism strengthens globally, the groundless allegation of antisemitism drains the word itself of meaning, making it incoherent and irrelevant, allowing racists who support Israel, such as Donald Trump or his chief strategist Steve Bannon , to hide their antisemitism. Profiling activists as antisemites, whether those with Holocaust survival in our family history or those without, is not only rhetorically dangerous, but may actually put people at risk. Right now Palestinian solidarity efforts are being criminalized the world over. But fearing these kinds of accusations and limiting ourselves to a false political correctness only leaves a void to be filled by authoritarian politics.

It will be seen as a hackneyed bid for populist appeal before next years election. Harder to dismiss will be Dame Louise Caseys recent 200-page report in the United Kingdom . It is based on more than 800 interviews conducted across Britain over several months and amounts to a blistering indictment of previous policiesor the absence thereof. In one anecdote, it found that some Muslim students are so segregated that they believe the country is 90 percent Muslim. As some communities have become more segregated, the increased pace of immigration has added new pressures, leaving long-standing communities struggling to adjust to the changes around them, the report said. Yet, too few leaders in public office have dealt with this key issue, perhaps hoping it might change or worrying about being labeled racist; or indeed fearing that they will lose the support of minority communities.

That set the pattern for her long career, scoop after scoop. It was Clare who broke the news of Kim Philby's defection to Russia, though her newspaper, the Guardian, fearing a libel suit, wouldn't use it at first.

Deals like NAFTA that linked the United States with much lower-wage economies proved a much harder sell in the United States, with the public fearing—not without good reason—that manufacturing investment would chase the cheap wages. Clinton was unable to win congressional approval to negotiate more trade deals. President George W. Bush did get so-calledfast track authority” from Congress in 2002optimistically re-branding it as “trade promotion authority”—but only after Republican House leaders held the vote open for an hour and strong-armed several members to switch their votes. The Bush administration’s trade agreement with Central America similarly passed in the House by just two votes in 2005. The real turning point, however, was China’s entry into the WTO in 2001. Presidents have long made the mistake of over-selling the benefits of trade agreements.

"An incredible year,'' says Philippe Van Parijs, a founder of the Basic Income Earth Network that lobbies for such payments. "There has been more written and said on basic income than in the whole history of mankind.''But before you write a resignation letter to your boss in anticipation of never needing to work again, be warned: there are multiple questions, including how to finance such schemes. Here is a look at the issues:WHY THE MOUNTING INTEREST?In a word, robots. With automated systems and machines increasingly replacing human workers, France could lose 3 million jobs by 2025, says Benoit Hamon, a former education minister campaigning for the French presidency on a promise of gradually introducing no-strings-attached payments for all. As work becomes scarcer, a modest but regular guaranteed income would stop people from fearing the future and free up their time for family, the needy and themselves, he argues.

The fate of the rule depends on how things play out in a lawsuit that will drag on past the inauguration In September, business groups including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce along with 21 states sued to block the new overtime rule. In late November, a federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked the rule from going into effect, which was supposed to happen Dec. 1. The judge also signaled he is likely to eventually side with the business groups, though it's not clear when that ruling will come. As of right now, the case is proceeding on two fronts, in both the district court and appeals court. The only thing that's known for sure is the litigation will continue past Jan. 20. At that point, the Trump administration could decide to stop defending the rule or not to appeal any judgment against it. Fearing that outcome, the AFL-CIO is trying to intervene in the case, hoping to continue defending the new rule if the Trump administration drops it.

In truth, that's exactly what the facility does — provides a safe space for you to heal and inspires you to take the fast track toward turning your life around.
