Trump's Fake Populism Gives the Real Thing a Bad Name
Tom Brenner/ReutersOf all the misguided clichés applied to President Donald Trump, maybe the most egregious is the term “populist.” Whether or not the president even has a coherent worldview beyond toggling between hedonism and resentment, it’s easy to see how consciously and consistently crass, petty, ignorant, and arrogant he is, which makes him seem more like your everyday barroom blowhard than a dignified statesman. Yet millions of voters consistently assume that his faults are actually what make him relatable, a man of the people.There’s a certain snobbery in calling a boob like Trump a populist, because it not so subtly implies that self-governance is wasted on people who vote for him. If this is the people’s champion, so the reasoning goes, then maybe we the people aren’t really meant to call the shots after all. Be honest—who among us hasn’t felt that way, at one time or another, in the last four years?There’s certainly no denying that the term populism has taken a beating lately, its definition so mauled and devalued that the word is now barely more than a synonym for bottom-feeding.Read more at The Daily Beast.

The Kid Who Masterminded El Chapo’s Secret Phone Network
It came in off the street one day—a tip, a lead, a rumor—whatever you cared to call it, it was one of the strangest things they had heard in their careers. Chapo Guzmán, the world-famous drug lord, had hired a young IT guy and the kid had built him a sophisticated system of high-end cell phones and secret servers, all of it ingeniously encrypted.The unconfirmed report—perhaps that was the best way to describe it—had arrived that Friday in June 2009 when a tipster walked into the lobby of the FBI’s field division office in New York. After his story had been vetted downstairs, it made its way up seven flights of stairs and landed with a curious thud among the crowded cubicles of C-23, the Latin American drug squad. For more than thirty years, the elite team of agents and their bosses had hunted some of the drug trade’s biggest criminals, and while tall tales of their antics circulated constantly through its squad room near the courts in Lower Manhattan, no one in the unit knew what to make of this one. The tipster’s account seemed credible enough, but it was sorely lacking details: The only facts he had offered on the young technician were a first name—Christian—and that he was from Medellín, Colombia. All sorts of kooks spouting all sorts of nonsense showed up all the time at FBI facilities, claiming they had inside information on the Kennedy killing or knew someone who knew someone who knew where Jimmy Hoffa was. In what were still the early days of internet telephony, it seemed a bit far-fetched that a twentysomething hacker had reached a deal with the world’s most wanted fugitive and furnished him in hiding with a private form of Skype. As alluring as it sounded, it was just the sort of thing that would probably turn out to be a myth.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump’s ‘Peace Deal’ Fuels Orgy of Mideast Arms Sales Not Seen Since the Cold War
Yuri Gripas/Abaca/Bloomberg via GettyJERUSALEM—In the lead-up to the signing of the Abraham Accords in Washington last week, President Donald Trump said that he would be open to sales of the advanced F-35 warplane to the “very wealthy countries” of the Gulf. The F-35, which costs around $80 million a plane, is one of the most expensive U.S. arms programs in history. The Trump administration, which has viewed many of its foreign policy accomplishments as a form of transaction, is supportive of pushing more U.S. arms sales in the wake of the U.S.-Bahrain-UAE deal. It is part of a much larger arms binge now taking place in the Middle East.The new regional arms race is underpinned by increasing competition between Washington, Moscow, and Beijing and the expansion of the arsenals of strong regional states, such as Israel, Turkey, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. While the U.S. is pushing the F-35 and other hi-tech machines to the Gulf states and Israel, Russia is selling the S-400 air defense system to Turkey and China is pitching armed drones across the Middle East. The big buyers today are mostly on the borders of the Middle East, in contrast to previous arms binges in the region, such as during the Cold War, when the major arms importers were countries like Iraq, Syria and Egypt.Last year, of the top 15 arms importers in the world, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), almost half were in the Middle East and North Africa: Saudi Arabia, Algeria, the UAE, Iraq, Qatar, Israel, and Turkey. Turkey, Israel and the UAE are also among the top 20 exporters in the world. The amount of weapons pouring into the region is far beyond the area’s share of the world’s GDP or population, meaning that per capita spending on weapons is the highest in the Middle East. While the world’s spending on arms as a percent of GDP has declined in the last decades, in the Middle East it has increased with countries like Saudi Arabia, Libya, Oman, the UAE, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, Syria and Bahrain all plowing more than 3.5 percent of GDP into weapons. It’s difficult to quantify if this is the most spending ever in the Middle East on arms because the Cold War arms race in which countries acquired huge arsenals of tanks and planes from the 1960s to 1980s was likely larger in terms of equipment, but the last five years have been unprecedented since the end of the Cold War.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Donald Trump Is a Liar. We Can Prove It.
Saul Loeb/AFP via Getty ImagesWhen can you call a lie a lie? And, more to the point, when can you call a liar a liar? These are not abstract questions. From the day Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015 with a semi-extemporized, 46-minute speech that included numerous documentable falsehoods, journalists and news organizations throughout America and around the world have struggled to find the right language to describe his language. Are words like “falsehood” and “untruth” adequate terms for a responsible journalist to use? Or should the word “lie”—which suggests intention, rather than accident or ignorance—be used instead? It should. In new research that will be published in the International Journal of Communication later this month, we offer empirical proof that Trump’s intent is to deceive. He is, in other words, a verifiable liar.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Escape the West Coast with this Utah Road Trip
Courtesy Winston RossWhen I loaded up a mustard-colored Kia Seltos in June with a cooler, a suitcase, a kayak, and a mountain bike and struck out of Portland for the rust-colored rockscapes of Utah, it felt a little reckless.Oregon had begun to get a weak grip on the coronavirus, but too many of the reddest Utahns were proudly rebuffing epidemiologists' urgent pleas to stay 6 feet away from one another and wear masks. Moab, a city of 5,000-ish people that draws 3 million visitors annually to its uncanny collection of rock arches and flowy trail systems, was actively discouraging anyone from coming to town. The region’s tiny health care offerings would be quickly overwhelmed by a tourist-driven spike in COVID-19 cases.But I was quarantine-cooped and desperate for a scene change and went anyway, hewing as close as possible to parts of the state where I could quickly retreat to Salt Lake’s robust hospital network if I caught the Bug. And now, after nearly two weeks of sweltering in the stagnant soup of PM 2.5 from the wildfires that have gobbled up what feels like half of the Cascade Range’s towering forests, I’m again eyeing the Beehive State as refuge.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Forget Policy. Biden Just Needs to Let Trump Expose Himself.
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast / Photos GettyJoe Biden, unless he has some huge brain fart, is going to win the debates. But it’s not likely to help him very much, for two reasons. So I would caution his campaign against thinking they can lock this thing down with solid debate performances.My advice would be: Rather than trying to win the debates, Biden should give Donald Trump the room to lose them. I’ll explain what I mean by that below, but first, let’s get to those reasons.Reason one why winning won’t matter much is that everyone expects him to win. This may sound kind of odd given how shaky he was in those early debates, but I think we can agree in retrospect that that was because he was on a stage with 15 other people who were all attacking him. By the time he got one-on-one with Bernie, he did very well. And in that recent town hall, he was terrific. There were a couple uh-oh moments, but he put on his boots and slogged his way through them.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Marriage Equality Is ‘in Danger,’ Says Supreme Court Victor Jim Obergefell
Alex Wong/GettyJim Obergefell, in whose name marriage equality became the law of the land in 2015 after he successfully presented his case to the Supreme Court, believes it is now “in danger” with the likely appointment to the court of conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett.Obergefell, 54, told The Daily Beast he has been dealing “with the feeling of devastation” over the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Now Judge Barrett’s nomination has brought an “overwhelming fear about LGBTQ+ rights and women’s rights and so many things,” he said. “I feel what I, and the many other marriage equality plaintiffs fought for, is at more risk than ever before.”Obergefell didn’t feel the same level of concern over the safety of marriage equality under the law when Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016, as he felt Chief Justice John Roberts “put so much weight on precedents, and so I thought would have been on the side of keeping marriage equality. But if Judge Barrett is appointed, it’s a potential 6-3 split in favor of conservatives. I’m concerned, I really am. I hate to say it, I really do, but I believe marriage equality is in danger. It makes me sick to my stomach.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
