Trump Agrees to Open ‘Limited’ F.B.I. Investigation Into Accusations Against Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON — President Trump, ceding to a request from Senate Republican leaders facing an insurrection in their ranks, ordered the F.B.I. on Friday to reopen a background investigation of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, his nominee to the Supreme Court, and examine the allegations of sexual assault that have been made against him.

The announcement plunged Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination into new turmoil after a tumultuous week on Capitol Hill, and will delay, by as much as a week, a final confirmation vote. It came only 24 hours after the judge and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, each gave emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that led many Republicans to think Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation was inevitable.

Republican leaders had little choice but to ask Mr. Trump to order the F.B.I. inquiry after Senator Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona, first announced he was supporting Judge Kavanaugh, and then, in a stunning reversal, said he would not vote to confirm him without an F.B.I. investigation first. With a handful of allies in a closely divided Senate, Mr. Flake, a conservative but an outspoken critic of the president, could determine the future of the Kavanaugh nomination, and that gave him leverage over Senate Republicans as well as the president.

“We ought to do what we can to make sure we do all due diligence with a nomination this important,” Mr. Flake told his colleagues on the Judiciary Committee after extracting a promise from Republican leaders to delay the final vote on the nomination until after the F.B.I. investigation. “This country is being ripped apart here.”

Mr. Trump, who had hoped Judge Kavanaugh would be sworn in by the time the Supreme Court opens its next term on Monday, said he was ordering the F.B.I. to conduct what he called a “supplemental” investigation that he said “must be limited in scope and completed in less than a week,” as the Republican Senate leadership had asked for.

The F.B.I. has already completed a background check on Mr. Kavanaugh, and it is unclear what the parameters of the new inquiry would be. But according to a person familiar with the matter, the allegations made by Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale classmate of Judge Kavanaugh’s, will be investigated along with those made by Dr. Blasey.

Judge Kavanaugh said in a statement on Friday that he would continue to cooperate with investigators to clear his name. Debra S. Katz, a lawyer for Dr. Blasey, said her client welcomed the development but not the “artificial limits” imposed by senators. Mark Judge, a friend of Judge Kavanaugh’s identified by Dr. Blasey and another accuser at the scene of the episodes, said through a lawyer that he would cooperate with investigators.

The delay cast a cloud over what Republicans expected to be a triumphant day, but they still had reason to be optimistic: Despite adamant Democratic opposition, they were able to muscle the nomination through the Judiciary Committee with an 11-to-10 vote and send it to the full Senate with a favorable recommendation.

[Watch: Mr. Flake is confronted by sexual assault survivors.]

Mr. Flake had already announced his intention to vote in favor of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation on Friday morning when, on his way to the committee meeting room, he was confronted by protesters who tearfully told him that they had been sexually assaulted. Then, after the committee chairman, Senator Charles E. Grassley, Republican of Iowa, set a 1:30 p.m. vote, he began to waver, and retreated into an anteroom with colleagues of both parties.

After nearly an hour of hushed conversations, as well as calls to law enforcement officials and other undecided Republicans, Mr. Flake emerged to ask for an investigation that would be “limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there,” siding with Democrats who have repeatedly requested an inquiry.

With that stipulation, the committee quickly voted along party lines to recommend to the full Senate that Judge Kavanaugh be confirmed.

After the vote, the panel’s Republican members, looking somber, streamed into the Capitol suite of Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader. Mr. McConnell, of Kentucky, voiced the frustration shared by other Republicans on the committee: More accusations — false ones, they said — were all but certain to surface, he said, according to a senior Republican official familiar with the conversation. And with Democrats bent on opposing Judge Kavanaugh, there would be no tangible benefit from an investigation.

But holding only the narrowest of majorities, 51 to 49, Mr. McConnell had little choice but to agree.

Mr. Grassley put on a good face for reporters after the meeting, saying it had been “a good day today by moving the nominee.”

Even before an investigation was reopened, it appeared that Republican fears could be founded. Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for one of the accusers, announced Friday on Twitter that Julie Swetnick, one of his clients, would tell her story “directly to the American people” this weekend because Republicans have not allowed her to testify under oath.

Still, Republican senators who had insisted for days that no F.B.I. investigation was necessary said on Friday that they were confident the F.B.I. could work quickly and that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination would go forward.

“I’ve never felt better about it, quite frankly,” said Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, citing Judge Kavanaugh’s performance on Thursday.

The bureau has looked at Judge Kavanaugh six times in the past, but it has never investigated the specific accusations raised in recent weeks.

The president alluded to those previous investigations on Friday night in a tweet, saying that he had “Just started, tonight, our 7th FBI investigation,” and declaring that Judge Kavanaugh would “someday be recognized” as a great Supreme Court justice.

Earlier in the day, Mr. Trump said he found Dr. Blasey’s testimony credible and “very compelling, and she looks like a very fine woman to me.” He had no message for the senators considering the nomination. “They have to do what they think is right and be comfortable with themselves,” he said.

After days of pleading for an F.B.I. investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct raised by Dr. Blasey and Ms. Ramirez, as well as by a third woman, Julie Swetnick, whom knew Judge Kavanaugh when he was in high school, Democrats said they were pleased by the president’s announcement.

“What it comes down to is the Senate always reminds you, in these critical moments, that one or two senators can make a difference,” said Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois and a member of the Judiciary Committee. “And in this situation, Senator Flake realized that something was important to him, and if he put his vote on the line, he could get a result.”

[Four key takeaways from the hearing.]

But elsewhere, passions were running high. Anti-Kavanaugh protesters roamed the halls of the Senate, and there was a heavy police presence. More than two dozen Democratic women — and a handful of men — from the House of Representatives marched arm in arm to the committee’s hearing room, mimicking a similar march during the 1991 confirmation hearings of Judge Clarence Thomas.


After Kavanaugh’s Testimony, Three Inconsistencies the F.B.I. Investigation Could Address

The Senate testimony of Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, the man she alleges assaulted her while they were in high school, revealed several details in their stories that do not match up.

Sept. 28, 2018

Inside the room, in a repeat of Thursday, emotions were raw, even by the standards of a highly partisan Senate. Mr. Graham, a former military prosecutor whose angry outburst on Thursday made headlines, delivered a blistering encore.

“This has been about delay and destruction, and if we reward this, it is the end of good people wanting to be judges,” Mr. Graham said. “It is the end of any concept of the rule of law. It’s the beginning of a process that will tear this country apart.”

Democrats on the panel pointedly accused Republicans of a cover-up — and mocked Republicans’ assertions that they had been respectful to Dr. Blasey, who also goes by her married name, Ford.

“I don’t want to hear about respect for Dr. Ford when we’re not giving her the respect of having an investigation,” said Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat of Minnesota.

That animosity seemed to dissipate after the last-minute wrangling with Mr. Flake.

Mr. Flake had given few hints in recent days about how he would vote. He pushed hard behind the scenes for Thursday’s hearing, telling party leaders he could not vote yes without hearing from Dr. Blasey and Judge Kavanaugh. But his public remarks had primarily focused on the dignity that had been stripped from the nomination process, and he declined to question Judge Kavanaugh on Thursday, using his brief remarks in the hearing room to chastise colleagues for their maximalist positions.

“There is doubt,” Mr. Flake said. “We’ll never move beyond that.”

Behind the scenes, the White House and the Judiciary Committee Republicans were working Friday to reassure wavering senators allied with Mr. Flake. They were increasingly confident that they would have the votes of Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, one of a number Democratic incumbents running for re-election in November.

One Democrat facing a difficult re-election battle, Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana, announced Friday that he would vote against Judge Kavanaugh, saying that he would “gladly welcome the opportunity to work with President Trump on a new nominee.”

What Is the Meaning of Chai?

The Hebrew word for life is a popular symbol and toast — and is linked to the number 18.

Chai  (חי) is the Hebrew word for life. The word, consisting of two Hebrew letters —chet (ח) and yud (י)— is a Jewish symbol, frequently appearing on pendants and other jewelry.

Unlike the Indian tea chai, which is pronounced with the “ch” sound of “chocolate,” the Hebrew chai is pronounced with the same “kh” sound as in challah. Both words  rhyme with “high,” however.

Chai also refers to the number 18.

 

 

 

That’s because each Hebrew letter has a numerical equivalent, and the sum of chet (numerical value of 8) and yud (numerical value of 10) is 18. As a result of its connection to the word for life, the number 18 is considered a special number in Jewish tradition. For this reason, Jews frequently make gifts or charitable contributions in multiples of $18.

In Hebrew, chai is often referred to in the plural form, chaim(חים), hence the boy’s name Chaim and the toast l’chaim (לחים), which, as anyone who has seen Fiddler on the Roof knows, means “to life.”

Chai pendants and other chai jewelry can be purchased at Judaica stores, many jewelry stores and online.

Ryan Strasser says he only wanted to spend $40,000 and insists the ring belongs to him, but who really owns it?

Who owns the diamond engagement ring when a couple breaks up?quentinFottrellnewnew_100.jpg

PERSONAL FINANCE EDITOR

You can’t put a price on love, but you can put a price on a breakup: $100,000.

Ryan Strasser, an associate with Troutman Sanders law firm in Washington, D.C., filed a lawsuit on Monday in the U.S. District Court in D.C. against his former fiancée, Sarah Jones Dickens, asking for the return of a 4.06-carat, $100,000 engagement ring, which he called a “conditional gift,” according to court documents. The couple was due to be married earlier this year and their relationship is outlined in sometimes excruciating detail.

The couple met as college classmates at Duke University in 2004 and started dating in 2015, the court filing states. Strasser earned a law degree and a Master of Public Administration, while Dickens studied art history in Cambodia and later enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Duke. They moved in together in December 2015. The following year, the beaming couple was photographed at a Modern Luxury magazine social event.

Their prospective wedding registry at TheKnot.com is listed as an exhibit in the suit, as are their engagement photos on Facebook FB, +0.13% Their registry included a $2,798 “rosewood slub velvet leonelle sofa” from the upscale clothing and lifestyle store Anthropologie URBN, +3.84% and $12 “Highland Hooks” (since reduced to $3.95). The engagement photographs show the couple holding hands, strolling through a snowy winter wonderland in a wooded area of Beaver Creek, Col. in February 2017.

‘Every lawsuit tells a story. But this one is a soap opera, a country-western song and a cautionary tale. In rich, painful (and possibly unnecessary) detail, Strasser lays out his version of how he was wronged.’

Jenna Greene, editor of The Litigation Daily

It’s one of many filings in recent years concerning diamond rings and broken engagements. In 2016, Bradley Moss successfully sued his former fiancée for the return of his $125,000 engagement ring. The marriage was called off after the rehearsal dinner at the Water Grill in Union Square allegedly turned sour when the families became embroiled in a heated argument. Similar cases have involved rings ranging in value from $19,000 to $250,000.

“The bigger the ring, the bigger the problem,” said Michael Stutman, managing partner at Stutman, Stutman & Lichtenstein in New York and past president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, New York. So who owns the ring? Family law varies from state to state, but in New York City and Washington, D.C. the gift of an engagement ring only becomes complete at the wedding ceremony, he said. (Stutman is not representing either party in the case.)

Strasser’s lawsuit details the evolution and eventual disintegration of the relationship in chilling legalese. “Defendant accepted the ring and the marriage proposal upon which the offer of the ring was predicated,” the suit states. “Roughly 11 months later, the parties’ marriage plans collapsed with a highly contentious break up that ended their engagement.” (Strasser and Dickens did not respond to several requests for comment. Strasser’s lawyer did not respond to request for comment.)

The court filing includes many personal details from Strasser-Dickens relationship. “Every lawsuit is a fight. Every lawsuit tells a story. But this one is a soap opera, a country-western song—and a cautionary tale,” said Jenna Greene, the San Francisco-based editor of The Litigation Daily, who first reported the case. “In rich, painful (and possibly unnecessary) detail, Strasser lays out his version of how he was wronged.”

Expensive engagement rings are a recent phenomenon

Big diamonds weren’t always part of the marriage ritual. The social expectation for engagement rings was actually created by jewelry and diamond companies in the first half of the 20th century, and it later became a tradition in movies. Giving a diamond ring to mark an engagement goes back to the “A Diamond is Forever” campaign by the DeBeers diamond company, which trademarked the sentiment. It was written by copywriter Frances Gerety in 1947.

In his suit, Strasser claims in the suit that Dickens insisted that she deserved a “large” engagement ring because she did not believe in wasting money on a wedding and, for that reason, the couple should hold a smaller wedding and, instead, spend “extra” on an engagement ring, “something she would enjoy daily for the rest of her married life.” Strasser and Dickens then had a “preliminary discussion” about the parameters of an engagement ring.

Initially, Strasser wanted to spend no more than $40,000 on the ring. “Defendant stated that whatever she would eventually want likely would cost more than that,” according to the court filing. Following “multiple trips to several jewelers,” Dickens allegedly told Strasser she preferred an engagement ring of around 3.5 to 5 carats “with an inclusion rating of no ‘worse’ than VS2 and a color rating of no ‘worse’ than G,” ratings that indicate the quality of the diamond,” the suit states.

Sarah Jones Dickens advised that her diamond could have no florescence and wanted an ‘Old European Cut’ diamond, which is cut using a manufacturing process in the early part of the 1900s, according to the court filing.

Dickens had a very detailed vision for her ideal ring, the suit claims. “She also advised that her diamond could have no florescence” and wanted an “Old European Cut diamond, a type of diamond cut using a manufacturing process in the early part of the 1900s that has since fallen out of fashion due to improved diamond-cutting technology,” according to the court filing.

Although Strasser told Dickens that $99,800 exceeded his budget for the ring, he acquiesced and agreed to buy the ring from Betteridge jewelry store in Greenwich, Conn. At Dickens’s request, Strasser had the ring re-certified in December 2016 to ensure it had not suffered any damage since its previous certification in 2012. (Strasser also took out a $30,000 personal loan through online lender Social Finance Inc. (SoFi) at an interest rate of 5.95% per annum to help pay for the ring.)

Not many Americans spend $100,000 on a ring. Americans are either cheap or thrifty. Some 36% of people say couples should spend at least $1,000 on an engagement ring and 19% say you should spend between $1,000 and $2,999, according to a 2016 survey of more than 5,000 people by personal-finance site GoBankingRates.com. However, 45% said you should spend more than that. In fact, a large portion of those believe money should be no object.

It’s also rare for a couple to go Dutch on an engagement ring. One-third of couples hunt for ring styles together, according to a survey by TheKnot.com, a wedding website, and 70% of brides are aware of how much their partner spent on the ring, but only 8% of grooms actually decided on a ring budget together with their partner. The average a couple or prospective groom spends on an engagement ring increased to $6,351 last year, up from $5,095 in 2011.

The suit alleges Strasser was the breadwinner

Strasser’s lawsuit further alleges that Dickens did not contribute to the mortgage or expenses during that phase of their relationship. Strasser was the “sole breadwinner from the beginning to the end of their cohabitation,” while Dickens was not employed in either a full-time or part-time capacity and thus had no income,” according to the court filings. The relationship soured and, “after a particularly dramatic weekend on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018,” it officially ended.

‘For both of our sakes, I look forward to completing this uncomfortable process as amicably as possible, to putting this process behind us, and to focusing on the next chapter of our lives.’

Ryan Strasser writing in an email to his ex-girlfriend Sarah Jones Dickens

During their time together, the suit says Strasser adopted two rescue dogs and Dickens had a dog of her own, which she had adopted prior to their moving in together. But the relationship appeared to go downhill from there. “Over the next several months, the living space available in the unit proved difficult for the parties and the three dogs,” it adds.

“The wedding band is considered marital property,” says Jacqueline Newman, a managing partner at Berkman, Bottger, Newman & Rodd in New York. “If it’s marital property, it’s subject to division. If you get divorced a month later, she still gets to keep the engagement ring. I often joke with my male friends, ‘Spend more money on the wedding ring than the engagement ring.’” (Newman is not representing either party in the case.)

There is quite a lot of personal correspondence in the suit to show that the couple had made plans to get married, including an email from March 14, 2017 from the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek, where Strasser and Dickens were planning to host their wedding, which was scheduled to take place earlier earlier this year. “Congratulations on your engagement!” the email reads. “What a beautiful time of year to be married and exciting for your guests.”

Strasser recounts one poignant scene after their breakup when his father was sent to retrieve his dogs and the ring. In a Jan. 9 email, Strasser alleges that Dickens and her mother told his father that they had decided that the ring would not be returned under any circumstances. When Strasser’s father attempted to retrieve the dogs, Strasser wrote to Dickens, “You refused to hand over Tyus, holding him in your arms.”

In that email to Dickens, Strasser implored her to return the engagement ring, noting that the appraised value of the diamond was now closer to $125,000. He hinted that the already acrimonious situation would escalate if the ring was not returned. “For both of our sakes,” he wrote. “I look forward to completing this uncomfortable process as amicably as possible, to putting this process behind us, and to focusing on the next chapter of our lives.”

(CNN)A woman has come forward with new allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of inappropriate behavior while he was in high school. The allegations come from Julie Swetnick, who attended Gaithersburg High School in Maryland.

Swetnick says she attended "well over ten" parties where Kavanaugh was present and saw him "drink excessively at many of these parties and engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior towards girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, ‘grinding’ against girls and attempting to remove or shift girls’ clothing to expose private body parts. "
Swetnick made her allegations in a sworn statement that was given to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her statement includes a series of other serious allegations that CNN has not yet been able to corroborate.

In a statement released by the White House, Kavanaugh said, "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don’t know who this is and this never happened."
President Donald Trump declined to answer a question about the latest allegations against Kavanaugh as he departed the United Nations on Wednesday. Trump spoke briefly on North Korea and China, but kept walking out of the building when the Kavanaugh question was asked.
This story is breaking and will be updated.

It happens that we have three huge assets that China doesn’t have, and is unlikely to acquire them anytime soo n. We should be doubling down on our strengths: immigration, allies and values. Instead, Trump is squandering them.

The Chinese are catching up to the U.S. in many ways, and the president grasps only part of the reason.

Early in the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” a Chinese-Singaporean father admonishes his young kids to finish their dinner, saying, “Think of all the starving children in America.” I’m sure that everyone of my generation in the theater laughed at that joke. After all, we’d all been raised on the line: “Finish your dinner. Think of all the starving children in China.”

That little line contained within it many messages: The first, which any regular traveler to China’s biggest urban areas can tell you, is that rich China today — its luxury homes, cars, restaurants and hotels — is really rich, rich like most Americans can’t imagine.

The second is that this moment was destined to be a test of who will set the key rules of the global order in the 21st century: the world’s long-dominant economic and military superpower, America, or its rising rival, China. And this test is playing out with a blossoming full-scale trade war.

What does such a test of wills sound like? It sounds like a senior Chinese official telling me at a seminar at Tsinghua University in April that it’s just “too late” for America to tell China what to do anymore on issues like trade, because China is now too big and powerful. And it sounds like President Trump, in effect, telling China: “Says who? Show me what you got, baby!” Or as Trump actually tweeted last week: “We are under no pressure to make a deal with China, they are under pressure to make a deal with us. … If we meet, we meet.”

ADVERTISEMENT

I guess we should be grateful that this confrontation has been confined to trade, but, as I said, it was inevitable. Because, as one top tech executive pointed out to me: “China is not a ‘near peer’ anymore. It is a peer.”

As Mary Meeker’s latest internet trends study noted, five years ago China had only two of the world’s largest publicly traded tech companies, while the U.S. had nine. Today, China has nine of the top 20 — Alibaba, Tencent, Ant Financial, Baidu, Xiaomi, Didi, JD.com, Meituan and Toutiao — and the U.S. has 11. Twenty years ago, China had none.

Do you see a trend? Do you hear footsteps? The total value of China’s internet economy is already bigger than America’s. And China’s economy now is so cashless that many women no longer carry purses or men wallets — just a cellphone with mobile apps — to buy anything, or even donate to a beggar.

And don’t get me started on the biggest emerging work and services tool in the world — artificial intelligence. China’s plan is to catch up to America in A.I. and surpass it as soon as possible, and it’s well on its way. Because with A.I., the more training data you can feed the machine the faster it learns, the more patterns you can see and the more algorithms you can write to improve products and services or invent new ones. Because China has so many more people than we do, and so many more of them use mobile apps for their daily lives, China’s ability to amass giant data sets and train more machines faster is considerable.

“If data is the new oil, then China is the new Saudi Arabia,” remarked Kai-Fu Lee, author of “AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order.”

Chinese companies are already the world leaders in computer vision/facial recognition and speech recognition, which can be used for commerce and for surveillance and societal control. In just the last two years there has been an explosion of fintech start-ups in China, offering mobile payments, lending, brokerage and banking. And the No. 1 and 3 drone manufacturers in the world — DJI and Xiaomi — are Chinese. France’s Parrot is No. 2. At the same time, China is producing far more engineers and scientists than the U.S., and their quality is steadily rising.

America today, by contrast, has become the unrivaled world leader in generating data about Donald Trump and from Donald Trump.

In the daily barrage of Trump news and tweets, some Trump statements are actually true, though — like the need for the U.S. to confront China’s unfair trade practices. China has grown incredibly these past 30 years with a very specific formula: hard work, unleashing capitalism, smart planning and long-range investments in education and infrastructure — but also by stealing intellectual property, forcing technology transfers and cheating on World Trade Organization rules.

We have to respond. But wisely.

Historically the U.S. could dominate the global scene and check a rising power like China, and set the global rules, with just our sheer physical mass — more money, more troops, more naval ships, more top-10 companies, more scientists and more universities. That is just not possible any longer, as China has become both big and smart in more and more areas. But all is not lost.

It happens that we have three huge assets that China doesn’t have, and is unlikely to acquire them anytime soon. We should be doubling down on our strengths: immigration, allies and values. Instead, Trump is squandering them.

Many of the smartest and most talented people in the world — high-I.Q. risk-takers — still want to come to our country. And in a knowledge-talent era, where companies thrive by being the first and fastest to put intelligence into everything they make, we should be welcoming more high-skilled immigrants than ever and giving green cards to every Chinese, and other foreign students, who come to America for advanced degrees.China can’t attract the best and brightest Indian, Israeli, Arab, French, Brazilian and Korean immigrants, but we still can. So why would we put out a sign saying “Go Away” or make it harder for their students to stay here?

Also, we have real allies in a way China does not. China has clients, customers and frightened neighbors. It does not have real partners like Canada and Mexico. It doesn’t have the whole Atlantic alliance with the European Union or tight relations with Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Australia — which we can leverage if we aren’t doing stupid stuff, like slapping them with steel tariffs or tearing up the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Finally, as a society, we stand for things — or at least we used to stand for things — values people admire, about the dignity of human beings, the rights of minorities and women and the virtues of freedom and the rules for fair play.

Our nation has never been just a beacon for profit-making, which only measured countries by their trade balance with us. Our values attracted people to our shores and helped us spread our rules onto the wider world. When Trump tore up the TPP trade deal I’m certain that he actually disappointed China’s economic reformers, who wanted to use the pact to create pressures inside China to reform.

In short, a strategic president wouldn’t squander our strengths but would reinforce them by creating a stronger global network of people and countries that share our values. We won the Cold War with a strategy of containment and bankrupting the Soviet Union by outspending the Kremlin on defense. But we will “win” this standoff with China, not by brute force alone, or by containment of China’s giant economy, but by “entanglement” — entanglement of Chinese students with our schools, Chinese businesses with our values, and the Chinese government with our allies. That is, with the broad alliances and global institutions, and their rules of fair play, that we’ve been part of since World War II.

So we have to fight for those rules, and China will fight for its versions. But ultimately, I believe, the U.S. and China together will have to play the role that the U.S. played alone after World War II — to define the rules of the new international order, from A.I. to privacy to trade. And our weight in that process — we must never forget — will depend on the talent we attract, the allies we rally and the values we embrace and promote.

There are a lot of things people get wrong about American millionaires – that’s why millionaires always make for such an interesting study. For the average American, it’s hard to fathom what a seven- or eight-figure life is like.

According to a new report by Coldwell Banker, there are around 32 million millionaires in the US – and that number is only expected to increase. Such growth has made the country’s millionaire population more diverse than ever, resulting in various trends and preferences.

With six weeks left until the midterm elections, and Republicans getting desperate, the GOP wants everyone to know they’ve got a massive cash load that will unleash a brutal pushback against Democratic momentum.

ActBlue
Dear Ajay,

With six weeks left until the midterm elections, and Republicans getting desperate, the GOP wants everyone to know they’ve got a massive cash load that will unleash a brutal pushback against Democratic momentum.

Paul Ryan’s super PAC alone has committed $85 million to attack candidates on the left in congressional races across the country. And in a recent report to The Hill, the RNC revealed it had raised a record amount of more than $250 million this election cycle.

This expensive damage control comes as no surprise. After all, multiple GOP leaders spent the past few weeks publicly admitting that conventional metrics and palpable enthusiasm on the left predict favorable election outcomes for Democrats.

Republicans can flex their wallet to make themselves feel better all they want, but the incredible energy on the left isn’t based in naive optimism. It’s coming from a truly collective mobilization to take back our country this November.

Small-dollar donors are continuing to give at a record rate and have already pitched in over $125 million on ActBlue in September so far. They’re powering thousands of Democratic candidates who have a real shot at clinching Congress but face a big uphill battle against the GOP’s attacks in upcoming weeks. We’re working extra hard to make sure our nonprofit fundraising platform can keep up with unprecedented traffic — will you chip in $5 to support our work?

Because you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:
Express Donate: $5
Express Donate: $10
Express Donate: $25
Express Donate: $75
Or donate another amount
The chair of the RNC says Republicans are “ready to defy history on November 6th” and keep their control of Congress.

The GOP’s definition of defying history may be to call up its mega-donor pals and use their millions to essentially buy electoral victories. But our definition of defying history is turning hard organizing work and grassroots giving into a more democratic Congress this November. It’s all hands on deck for us, and we can’t stop now.

The clear trend on the left is one of electric momentum. A relentless movement of small-dollar donors has consistently grown leading up to the elections, and folks are showing no signs of giving up now.

Grassroots donors are contributing at historic rates to thousands of Democrats on ActBlue who need these resources more than ever to reach supporters and get out the vote. Will you chip in $5 to help us keep up our platform in our busiest time yet?

Because you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:
Express Donate: $5
Express Donate: $10
Express Donate: $25
Express Donate: $75
Or donate another amount
From all of us at ActBlue, thanks.

NAACP --

Today is National Voter Registration Day and we urge you to join us in this national day of action. With mid-term elections only weeks away, we need to energize and encourage our community to ensure that our voices are heard. Since the 2016 election, we’ve watched as a slew of racist rhetoric and hate-filled policies have taken hold across our country.

On November 6, we have the collective power to shift the political landscape in critical states throughout the country. The first step towards creating this reality is to make sure that everyone in our community is registered to vote.

Are you registered to vote? If you’re unsure, visit the NAACP’s voter registration hub to make sure you’re still on your states voter rolls or register to vote.

For us to be successful in November, we need everyone in our network to vote! Our lives depend on it!

There’s no time to be coy about what’s currently happening in America. In state after state, we are fighting battles that will literally alter our lives. We must organize. We must mobilize. We must do everything we can to turn out: our family, our friends, our neighbors, our co-workers, our sorority sisters, our fraternity brothers, everyone. We must vote! Our lives depend on it!
