The Pentagon made it official Monday evening, as the U.S. canceled the upcoming August military drills with South Korea at the behest of President Donald Trump, as he promised North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un when the two met in Singapore.

“Consistent with President Trump's commitment and in concert with our Republic of Korea ally, the United States military has suspended all planning for this August's defensive ‘wargame’ (Freedom Guardian),”...

This Mom’s Story Proves the White House Lied About Family Separation at the Border

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

EL PASO, Texas—“This administration did not create a policy of separating families at the border,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said from the White House on Monday.

Tell that to Donelda, 35, and her daughter, 6. Both are asylum seekers from Guatemala who were turned away by U.S. Customers and Border Patrol at the Paso del Norte port of entry on May 8, the day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Trump administration’s...

Stephen Colbert Torches Kirstjen Nielsen For Defending Border Separation Policy

CBS

When the White House delayed Monday’s press briefing by nearly four hours on Monday, it seemed for a moment as if the Trump administration might actually announce a change to its “inhumane” policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Instead, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen emerged to double down on what the president of the American Academy of Pediatrics has called a “form of child abuse.”

Referring to Nielsen as “definitely not the descendant of...

Seth Meyers: If You Support Trump’s Border Policy, You Should ‘Resign in Disgrace’

NBC

Seth Meyers had a clear message for anyone who is still defending the Trump administration’s “cruel” policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border: “Resign in disgrace.”

Noting that Trump has “much less sympathy” for immigrant children than he does for his jailed former campaign manager Paul Manafort, the Late Night host denounced the “monstrous and inhumane” policy that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has justified by quoting the Bible.

Is Trump’s ‘Space Force’ Against Space Law?

“Space—the final frontier.”

For fans of Star Trek, the phrase evokes the epic mission of a fictional starship, bound for adventure beyond the stars, “to boldly go where no man has gone before.” For President Donald Trump, humankind’s mission to the final frontier has a very different goal.

On Monday—perhaps in a bid to distract from an appalling humanitarian crisis brewing on the nation’s southern border—President Trump...

The Must-See ‘Othello’ at Shakespeare in the Park; Racism and Power in ‘Pass Over’

‘Othello’

Whether the performance is or isn’t great, just being at “Free Shakespeare in the Park,” as produced every summer by New York’s Public Theater, is a particularly sweet bit of New York magic. This time last year, it was also a fire conductor of absurd controversy, as the right wing leapt frothingly on a performance of Julius Caesar, featuring a Trumpified central character.

In the first of this summer’s productions, Othello, directed beautifully by...

Brandon Cox, an editor and publisher based in Scottsboro, Alabama is watching, in real time, the destruction of his newsrooms.

To print the Jackson County Sentinel and nine other community papers in the region, he needs about 450 tons of newsprint per year. In the last few months, the cost per ton has gone up by more than $250, from $550 to $800, meaning Cox is facing a roughly hundred-thousand-dollar annual hike in his annual operating...

While there are approximately ten billion movies about World War II, World War I often gets the short end of the stick when it comes to cinematic representation (except for War Horse; where are my War Horse people at?!). Now, Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes will attempt to...
