    (Bloomberg Opinion) — Speaking at a fundraiser in California over the weekend, President Donald Trump predicted that he would have a new nuclear deal within four weeks if re-elected in November. In one sense, this is typical bluster from a president who has recently mused that his face should be carved on Mount Rushmore. At the same time, it highlights both a risk about a second Trump term and a truth about the Iranian regime his administration has pressured since taking office. First, consider the risk. Trump has always explained his maximum pressure campaign as an effort to coerce Tehran to submit to better terms. By itself, there is nothing wrong with that. The 2015 nuclear deal forged by Trump’s...
    Letitia James called the National Rifle Association a 'terrorist organization' and promised to investigate it before she was even elected  New York's Attorney General two years ago. She listed the gun-supporting group as one of her priorities during a magazine interview. 'The NRA holds (itself) out as a charitable organization, but in fact, (it) really (is) a terrorist organization,' James told Ebony shortly before she won the 2018 vote. Now, less than two years later, James, 61, is trying to bring down the gun-toting organization claiming corruption and misspending by top officials mean it is beyond redemption, and it should be closed down. She made her move in a lawsuit on Thursday claiming the NRA — the nation's most powerful gun...
    President Donald Trump has again taken a swipe at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calling her Green New Deal proposal 'childish.' 'They want to raise everybody's taxes, everybody, and they want to do the Green New Deal, which will decimate our country and decimate,' Trump said during a press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday. 'It's ridiculous, it's childish. I actually say the Green New Deal is childish. It's for children, it's not for adults,' he said, without referring by name to the policy's key architect, New York Democrat Ocasio-Cortez. 'Maybe it's politics, they seem to think it's good politics,' Trump added. 'I don't think it's good politics, it'll decimate our economy.' President Donald Trump has...

    New York Giants: The downside to retaining Markus Golden in 2020 By: Alexander Wilson July 28, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants retained Markus Golden on a free-agent tender last week, despite him not signing his contract just yet.

    Biden's shift to the economy meets Trump on turf Trump had seen as his strength before the pandemic severely curtailed consumer activity and drove unemployment to near-Great Depression levels. Now, Biden and his aides believe the issue is an all-encompassing opening that gives Democrats avenues to attack Trump on multiple fronts while explaining their own governing vision for the country.

    The White House says it strongly opposes House Democrats’ $1.5 trillion infrastructure package, which the chamber is considering this week. “Instead of taking a balanced approach that would benefit more Americans, H.R. 2 is full of wasteful ‘Green New Deal’ initiatives that would impede economic growth and impose unnecessary mandates, hindering innovation and driving up costs for the American people,” the White House said in a statement of administration policy Monday.

And are there lessons to be learned from the original New Deal?
