Leadership deficit on both sides prolongs the unfinished uprisings

As Arab Spring opposition groups enjoy popular legitimacy but lack power, they can't afford an unintelligent approach.

There is not one leader worth mentioning in the entire world these days. Maybe France’s new president, Hollande, will be another Mitterand but in the present scheme of things unlikely.

The No BS Guide To The Upcoming Jill Stein Recount

In Pennsylvania, Trump himself has joined up with the local Republican Party to block Jill Stein's request for a recount.

In Wisconsin, Trump Super PACS are doing the dirty work and have asked a federal judge to stop what they say is a violation of due process rights.
