President Donald Trump took his rancorous feud with the press to a frightening new level last week when he posted an inflammatory tweet that echoed tyrants of the past, calling the all-caps “FAKE NEWS” media “the enemy of the American People.”
As many were quick to point out, the phrase “enemy of the people” has a disturbing and violent history, and has long been used by totalitarian dictators to foster resentment and hatred of certain groups, and eventually to crush dissent and opposition.

In early 2016, few evangelical leaders were on Team Trump, as they had Ted Cruz and other conservative Christians to choose from in a crowded Republican presidential field. After Donald Trump embarrassed his GOP competition and became the party’s nominee, prominent evangelicals began changing their tune.
The United States has already lost — its war for the Middle East, that is. Having taken my own crack at combat soldiering in both Iraq and Afghanistan, that couldn’t be clearer to me. Unfortunately, it’s evidently still not clear in Washington. Bush’s neo-imperial triumphalism failed. Obama’s quiet shift to drones, Special Forces and clandestine executive actions didn’t turn the tide either.
During Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s recent visit to Salon’s New York studios, the Rhode Island Democrat and co-author of “Captured: The Corporate Infiltration of American Democracy” discussed the distinctive and insidious quality of what he called the “corporate science denial” machine.
Whitehouse, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee that will soon consider President Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, said that the origins of “alternative facts and fake news” lay in corporate efforts to push back against scientific consensus, first on the harmful effects of tobacco and then on climate change.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel is stressing the need to work for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after President Donald Trump signaled that he could accept a different outcome.
