White supremacy in America is on the rise, from incidents of propaganda, violence and more, as recent reports from the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center document. Journalist, author and blogger David Neiwert discusses the growth of right-wing extremists in the country in his new book Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump.

Photos of a Florida massage parlor owner Li Yang with a number of notable Republicans recently surfaced, and an investigation into her network reveals ties to Chinese execs and government-linked groups. Mother Jones reporter Dan Friedman, along with reporters David Corn and Daniel Schulman, researched her ties and the surprising connections they expose.
