WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Rep. Only five months ago, King condoned interview with The New York Times. “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” he said. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?” CNN, citing two GOP sources, reported King to Tuesday’s fundraiser, where Trump was the marquee speaker. “All Iowa elected GOP officials have been extended an invitation to this private, party fundraiser,” said state party spokesman Aaron Britt, when asked whether it was appropriate for a bigot like King to attend.

Bernie Sanders just made a brilliant defense of democratic socialism | Bhaskar Sunkara

In a speech yesterday, his message was crystal clear: Political freedom in the absence of economic freedom is not real freedom In a message may be starting to resonate. Fifty-seven per cent of Democrats view socialism positively, along with 61% of those aged 18 to 24. Yesterday, Sanders expanded his democratic socialist vision further, using the rhetoric of freedom thats a regular trope in American politics, but giving it a socialist gloss. Political freedom in the absence of economic freedom is not real freedom. Hardened socialists might scoff at Sanderss summoning of Roosevelt as a proto-socialist.

Volkswagen employees in Tennessee could help determine the future of the United Auto Workers

New York (CNN Business)The membership and influence of the United Auto Workers union has been shrinking for decades. In the latest effort to reverse that trend, the union will try to win a vote this week at Volkswagen’s only US plant.

The UAW faces tough negotiations with General Motors (GM), Ford (F) and Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) on a new round of labor deals later this year. Jobs will be …
