Leading “pundits” such as Charlie Kraut will give you writing that is low on truth quotient (TQ). They will tell you only partial or half-truths. But as the saying goes, A half-truth is a whole lie. Please support me, so that I can continue to give you the whole truth, to the best of my knowledge.

[Charlie Kraut died last year, but his writing is no higher in TQ.]

Thank you.

We have a winner!

I thought this very thing last Saturday evening.

Was discussing with a friend the possibility that "intelligence" agencies were involved with the attacks.

Could it be that the police response to the shooting was suspiciously slow, taking over 20 minutes for police to arrive even though police stations were only a few blocks away? (Sounds a bit like the Parkland shooting in Florida, doesn't it? Remember how sheriff's deputies were ordered to stand down while the shooting was playing out?)

There was a lot of news last week. A college-admissions scandal. A plane crash. An awful terrorist attack. Beto O'Rourke's campaign announcement. So maybe you missed the president of the United States muse aloud about violence by his political supporters.
My column this morning is about that threat. President Trump keeps encouraging both violence and white nationalism — and white-nationalist violence is rising. That's not a coincidence. He doesn't deserve blame for any specific attack. But he deserves blame for using the world's biggest bully pulpit to corrode our democracy and public safety. He's engaging in behavior that has scary historical echoes and real-world effects.
Related: "Violent white nationalists think Trump is a white nationalist," Judd Legum writes, in a detailed post at Popular Information. "The President of the United States is dismissing the threat of white nationalism, using white nationalist rhetoric, and aggressively pursuing policies favored by white nationalists."
Senator Substance
Among the 2020 Democratic candidates, Elizabeth Warren has jumped out to a big early lead in the ideas competition. She has the most ambitious, detailed policy agenda of any candidate. After sitting down with her for two recent conversations — including one you can listen to here — I wrote about her platform in a Sunday Review column.
I don't agree with every Warren proposal, as I explained. But she has correctly diagnosed the biggest problems facing the American economy and has proposed a coherent post-Obama vision for the party. I hope the other 2020 candidates also offer clear visions — and, ideally, different ones — for fixing an economy that has created so much frustration.
If you want to dig in deeper on Warren's agenda, you can read John Cassidy in The New Yorker or the former Obama administration officials Lily Batchelder or David Kamin on Twitter.
Of Warren's proposal to put workers on corporate boards: Vox's Matthew Yglesias and the Roosevelt Institute's Susan Holmberg have praised it. Eric Levitz of New York magazine has compared it with Bernie Sanders's platform, and Jeffrey Miron of Harvard has criticized it.
Of Warren's plan to break up big tech: Michael Tomasky praises it in The Daily Beast. The Washington Examiner editorial board — not normally a Warren fan — offers partial praise. Megan McArdle of The Washington Post lists her criticisms.
My colleague Paul Krugman has also written several recent columns praising Warren's emerging agenda.
