  • Kaine talks with rapper Pusha T on the campaign trail

    The Hillary Clinton campaign released a new video Wednesday featuring Tim Kaine and rapper Pusha T on the trail in Florida discussing criminal justice reform, education and healthcare. The rapper campaigned with Kaine in Miami late last week during the Democratic vice presidential nominee's Florida swing. Pusha T said one of the most important issues to him is criminal justice reform, adding that he and the Democratic ticket are "definitely on the same page." "There's a lot of reforms that are necessary," Kaine said. "There's policing reforms to make sure that we have communities where everybody respects the law, but...

    Anna Stubblefield was a tenured professor of ethics at Rutgers University when she fell in love with D.J., the brother of one of her students. The romantic feelings welled up in her sometime in 2010, less than a year after she started working with him. The two read books, drank wine, even wrote an essay together that D.J. presented at a conference in Philadelphia, Stubblefield said. Stubblefield, who was married with two children, said her emotions ran so strong that she was willing to leave her family behind to be with him. "I'm in love with you the whole way,"...
  • Houston Oil and Gas: Cuts and Rehires Indefinitely Frozen

    10/26/2016 12:34:12 PM PDT · by bananaman22 · 2 replies ^ | 26-10-2016 | Mexicans are stealing our jobs
    Despite indications that the Houston hemorrhage of oil and gas jobs has slowed down, the two-year old wave of advances in drilling and extraction technologies—pioneered by now-jobless engineers—will prevent rehiring from commencing any time soon. Last week—and for the first time in over a year—oilfield services company Halliburton reported a quarterly profit. The profit was small in size, but refreshingly hopeful for Houston’s long-ailing oil and gas job market. Months of job cuts and asset sales later, the company announced a slim $6 million profit and a stable global workforce at 50,000 employees. A full ten percent of the 3,500...

    Washington Post ^ | 23 October 2016 | Greg Miller and Adam Entous
    As rebel-held sections of Aleppo crumbled under Russian bombing this month, the Obama administration was secretly weighing plans to rush more firepower to CIA-backed units in ­Syria. The proposal, which involved weapons that might help those forces defend themselves against Russian aircraft and artillery, made its way onto the agenda of a recent meeting President Obama held with his national security team. And that’s as far as it got. Neither approved nor rejected, the plan was left in a state of ambiguity that U.S. officials said reflects growing administration skepticism about escalating a covert CIA program that has trained and...

    Donald Trump is the better of the two electable candidates. He is not a perfect individual by any means, nor is he an ideal candidate even by my own standards, but he is the best option we have this election season, which is why I’m casting my vote for him. It is easy to be dismissive of Trump by labelling him with any number of virtually meaningless buzzwords: “racist,” “sexist,” “Islamophobic,” “xenophobic” — take your pick. The mainstream media has done a great job of demonizing the Republican candidate (as they do every election), but frankly this doesn’t concern me...

And that was before the final two presidential debates and the release of the controversial “Access Hollywood” video that showed Trump years ago bragging about sexually assaulting women and the subsequent stream of women claiming he had done that to them.

    Myth: “Xmas” is a non-religious name / spelling for “Christmas”. It turns out, “Xmas” is not a non-religious version of “Christmas”. The “X” is actually indicating the Greek letter “Chi”, which is short for the Greek, meaning “Christ”. So “Xmas” and “Christmas” are equivalent in every way except their lettering. In fact, although writing guides such as those issued by the New York Times; the BBC; The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style; and Oxford Press discourage the use of Xmas in formal writing, at one time, it was a very popular practice, particularly with religious scribes, who are thought to...

    Prior to Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred went on ESPN's Mike & Mike, where he was asked to give his stance on the Cleveland Indians' controversial "Chief Wahoo" logo. The logo, which has been worn in every game throughout the playoffs, has been widely criticized for being insensitive and offensive for its characterization of Native Americans. The team also uses a retro, block-lettered 'C' as a hat logo, but players voted to play with the Chief Wahoo cap in all postseason games. Though the players appear to prefer it, the future of the logo may be...

    More than 1 in 4 of the nation’s full-time teachers are considered chronically absent from school, according to federal data, missing the equivalent of more than two weeks of classes each academic year in what some districts say has become an educational crisis. The U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights estimated this summer that 27 percent of the nation’s teachers are out of school for more than 10 days of regular classes — some missing far more than 10 days — based on self-reported numbers from the nation’s school districts. But some school systems, especially those in poor, rural...

    The anchors of CBS This Morning expressed bewilderment on Tuesday at the sharp premium hikes in Obamacare insurance plans, with one asking for an understanding for “why this is happening.” When Obamacare open enrollment begins in 2017, the cost of mid-level plans will rise by an average of 25 percent in the 39 states served by the federal online exchanges. In addition, major providers like Humana, UnitedHealth, and Aetna have scaled back or dropped out of the Obamacare exchanges, leaving roughly 20 percent of consumers with only one insurer to choose from.

While pollsters have sought to over sample democrat voters and other targeted groups to convince voters that Clinton is leading, Trump is emerging ahead of Clinton in the state of Florida (and Ohio.) At the culmination of the first day of early voting which included returned absentee ballots, Donald Trump led Florida with just over 7,000 votes. In the latest Bloomberg Politics poll, Trump is ahead of Clinton, 45% to 43% -- well within the poll's 3.2 percentage point margin of error. Pollsters...

    Democrats are already looking beyond ObamaCare’s slow-motion failure, and Colorado is showing where many want to go next: Premiums across the state are set to rise 20.4% on average next year, and some have concluded that the solution is more central planning and taxation. Voters will decide on Nov. 8 whether to try the single-payer scheme that blew up in Vermont. Amendment 69 would alter the state’s constitution to create a single-payer health system known as ColoradoCare. The idea is to replace premiums with tax dollars, and coverage for residents will allegedly include prescription drugs, hospitalization and more. Paying for...

    One strange US election fact is becoming clear: Donald Trump has become the favoured presidential candidate of some American Hindus. How and why are more complex questions. In June, I wrote about a small gathering of the Hindu Sena (Hindu Army) in Delhi performing a havan puja (religious offering) to Donald Trump. The erstwhile relatively unknown group attracted widespread media attention with its highly vocalised support of the Republican presidential candidate, in particular emphasising Trump’s views on combating “Islamic terrorism”. While the Hindu Sena remains a fringe phenomenon within India, I pointed then to the growing influence of Hindus for...

They are calling for a visual inspection of some or all of the actual ballots in order to rule out the presence of electronic "vote-flipping."

Elliott County was formed in 1869, and since its first presidential election, in 1872, it had voted for the Democratic nominee every time — the longest span of any U.S. county. President Obama — like the previous Democratic candidates for president — won Elliott County in 2012, extending its streak.

    U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Democrat Hillary Clinton's plan for Syria would "lead to World War Three," because of the potential for conflict with military forces from nuclear-armed Russia. In an interview focused largely on foreign policy, Trump said defeating Islamic State is a higher priority than persuading Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, playing down a long-held goal of U.S. policy. Trump questioned how Clinton would negotiate with Russian President Vladimir Putin after demonizing him; blamed President Barack Obama for a downturn in U.S. relations with the Philippines under its new president, Rodrigo...

    Two weeks after early voting began in California, independent voters in San Diego County are off to a sluggish start. No-party preference voters, also colloquially called declined to states, make up 26.8 percent of San Diego County’s electorate, but as of Tuesday they account for just 19.3 percent early voters or people who have returned mail-in ballots. While independents are underrepresented in votes cast so far, turnout is disproportionately high for members of the two major parties. While independents are often targeted by candidates in general elections, turnout among this group is often low. Not one party in any county,...

    Talking Points Memo ^ | 10/26/2016 | MATT SHUHAM
    During a keynote address Wednesday at the U.S. Chamber Institute's Legal Reform Summit, Mitt Romney made a series of subtle jabs at the Republican nominee on his business platform, in front of a friendly audience used to Republican business orthodoxy. After opening with a familiar refrain—“I get asked on a regular basis, boy, why aren't you running this year. I ask myself that now and then, too"—Romney delivered a speech that seemed to dig at a few of Donald Trump's policy positions without ever mentioning him by name. ... “I don’t think either candidate for president has said they’re going...

    Have you ever typed "female" into an online thesaurus? Heather O'Banion did, and the results outraged her. "I am a student in graphic design, and while doing research for a persona on one of my projects, I wondered what other words were synonymous with the word female, so I went to and typed it in," O'Banion emailed the Tribune recently. "See what comes up? ... I'm pretty (expletive) sure the last thing you or your 10-year-old daughter wants to see at the top are words like babe, bag, broad, doll or little woman." Sure enough, after some synonymous adjectives...

    On September 26th Gallup released the results of the survey it does each September before an election. The important data points it contained are significant as a means as calmly accessing where Donald Trump stands going into this year’s election. Within the results was the fact that, at just 47%, the intentions of Democrats to vote is at the lowest point since 2000. This is not the insignificant matter that the Democrat controlled media would have us believe. Aside from the large 11 point intensity to vote edge that Donald Trump voters have, if this portends a lower than usual...

Clinton was referring to news media inquiries about Flowers’ alleged affair with Clinton and Flowers’ concern that the media could raise questions about how she landed her job as administrative assistant for the Arkansas Appeal Tribunal. Clinton can also...
