China Humiliates Another Western Company

Mercedes-Benz, the luxury unit of Daimler AG , recently learned the price of crossing Beijing. Earlier this month the German car maker was attacked by state media after posting an anodyne Dalai Lama quote on Instagram. The company quickly and abjectly apologized to the Chinese government. It then went further, promising "no support, assistance, aid or help to anyone who intentionally subverts or attempts to subvert China's sovereignty and territorial integrity."

Chinese State-Owned Chemical Firm Joins Dark Money Group Pouring Cash Into U.S. Elections

Wanhua Chemical, a $10 billion chemical company controlled by the Chinese government, now has an avenue to influence American elections. On Monday, Wanhua joined the American Chemistry Council, a lobby organization for chemical manufacturers that is unusually aggressive in intervening in U.S. politics. The ACC is a prominent recipient of so-called dark money - that is, unlimited amounts of cash from corporations or individuals the origins of which are only disclosed to the IRS, not the public. During the 2012, 2014, and 2016 election cycles, the ACC took this dark money and spent over $40 million of it on contributions to super PACs, lobbying, and direct expenditures. (Additional money flowed directly to candidates via the ACC's political action committee.)

Uncovering the naked truth

Playboy magazine, now a relic in the legacy of its founder, Hugh Hefner, was not so long ago the sex educator of the young men of America. So pervasive was its influence that someone joked that "a generation of men, having learned about the female body from Playboy's famous centerfolds, are astonished on their wedding nights to discover that their wives don't come with staples in their navels."

An unusual turn in the Michael Flynn case?

Observers are buzzing about a series of events in the last 60 days in the case of Michael Flynn, the Trump national security adviser who on Dec. 1 pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI in the Trump-Russia investigation. The new developments might add up to very little or they might be significant. In any event, they are raising eyebrows.

Why the Porter Resignation Is a Big Scandal

The resignation of White House staff secretary Rob Porter is a big scandal because Democrats and their news media are pumping it up to distract the public from the truly enormous scandal of the Obama administration's apparent illegal spying on the Trump campaign and its apparent scuttling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. There is some reason to expect that this strategy - like many another Democrat attack on Trump - is going to blow up in the attackers' faces.
