Two men whose fates differed under Trump's twisted take on justice

  • The Vindmans' year-long ordeal stands in stark contrast to the freedom enjoyed by political operative Roger Stone, a convicted felon coddled by President Trump and his cronies.
  • President Trump's unjustified pardon of a convicted liar and his vindictive treatment of a career military family should offend anyone who values integrity, backbone and the courage it takes to speak truth to power -- especially when that power is exercised by a vengeful and petty President who utterly lacks all three qualities.

Mark Zuckerberg is spending millions like never before to overhaul a landmark tax law

  • While other tech leaders have conspicuously avoided weighing in until the very last minute, if at all, Zuckerberg stuck his neck out early and has now spent almost $11 million — including $4.5 million more just this month — on the cause, raising the stakes for Election Day. Zuckerberg is backing what is called the “split roll” reform measure through his and his wife’s philanthropy, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
  • Split roll, or officially this year’s Proposition 15, is just one of many political projects, including a push for education reform and four other CZI-backed ballot initiatives in California this year, undertaken by the five-year-old philanthropy, which now has 400 employees.
  • The Silicon Valley Community Foundation, which advises the philanthropic work of many tech billionaires and is backing split roll, has been pitching its clients for more than a year on spending their money on the split-roll fight, including at a town hall held last month.
