    President-elect Donald Trump has tapped David Shulkin to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, he announced Wednesday. "I appointed today the head secretary of the Veterans Administration, David Shulkin," Trump said during his news conference at Trump Tower in New York. "We'll do a news release in a little while, I'll tell you about David, he's fantastic. He's fantastic. He will do a truly great job. One of the commitments I've made is that we're going to straighten out the whole situation for our veterans." Shulkin is the VA's current undersecretary for health, a position in which he oversaw more...

    Trump's USA may cooperate with Russia like never before, significantly altering global power equations. The invocation of the "foreign hand" to explain unexpected political developments is quite common in the [Indian] subcontinent. But the last place in the world to have a debate on the "foreign hand" is the United States. Usually, it is Washington that is accused of meddling in the internal affairs of other nations -- from promoting military coups to propping up friendly regimes and engineering regime changes. But right now, it is America that is debating the nature and extent of the Russian President Vladimir Putin's...

    During President-elect Donald Trump’s press conference today, Trump took aim at “fake news” regarding the release of an unverified dossier by Buzzfeed, calling them a “failing piece of garbage.” Following that, he ended up getting into an argument with a CNN reporter, who he also called out during the presser over their report on a two-page synopsis they claim was presented to Trump. With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?” “Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”

    President-elect Donald Trump has tapped a Kennedy – and a vaccine skeptic – to run a new commission on the safety of vaccines. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. revealed his new role after a meeting at Trump Tower on Tuesday. He said Trump had asked him to head a commission on 'vaccine safety and scientific integrity' and that he had agreed to do so. Both Trump and Kennedy have have raised suspicions about vaccines despite their overwhelming support among scientists and physicians as a way to prevent the spread of deadly diseases that can infect infants and other children when the...

    National Review ^ | January 11, 2017 | John R Lott Jr
    Pouring money into mental-health care won’t stop mass public shootings. Unfortunately, psychiatry is far from a perfect science. There has already been a lot of second-guessing about Esteban Santiago-Ruiz, who killed five people and wounded eight at the Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport on Friday. Despite extensive psychological evaluations, many psychiatrists had failed to identify Santiago as a danger to others. One of Santiago’s brothers blames the government. In November 2016, local police escorted Santiago to a psychiatric hospital. Relatives say that after being released, he received further psychological treatment at his home in Alaska. Shouldn’t the experts have picked up...

    Macs tend to fare second best in Consumer Reports testing, partly because the magazine lives in ignorance of the differences between Apple’s computers and Windows boxes. But they’ve always been recommended, until recently. I can quibble about the way the tests appear to emphasize features over performance, usability and reliability. In fact, I have. But it took a poor rating by CR to trigger a dialogue that revealed a serious flaw in their testing. The tests also triggered an obscure bug in Safari for macOS Sierra that might otherwise have remained undiscovered and unfixed. It all started when CR reported...

It turns out, the Cubs have reportedly decided to take Obama up on his offer to visit before Donald Trump is sworn in as our 45th president. They’ll visit Monday, four days before the inauguration. After the Cubs won the World Series in November, Obama — a White Sox fan from the Southside of Chicago — invited the Cubs to take part in the traditional presidential celebration earlier than normal.

    Business Insider ^ | 01/11/2017 | Paul Szoldra
    President Barack Obama is seriously considering a pardon for former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, according to a new report from NBC News. Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act and other charges in July 2013 after he stole nearly a million secret documents while working as an intelligence analyst, later giving them to WikiLeaks. The files detailed operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and revealed secret diplomatic cables, some of which were highly embarrassing to the US. A Justice Department source told NBC News that Manning was on the president's "short list" for commutations. The 29-year-old is currently...

During his speech - reading from a teleprompter - he quoted from the Declaration of Independence. Here is what he said: "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Perhaps his teleprompter muddles the defining phrase “endowed...

    When choosing a career, it's important to seek out jobs that are meaningful and challenging. But a high salary doesn't hurt, either. US News & World Report recently released its 2017 Best Jobs rankings, which determines the best occupations in the US based on median salary, employment rate, growth, job prospects, stress level, and work-life balance. You can read more about the methodology here. The publication then ranked these coveted positions by pay, finding that, unsurprisingly, many of America's top jobs come with six-figure salaries. Positions in the healthcare sector dominated the list, with anesthesiologists claiming the top spot, followed...

Bush said Tuesday he hopes the president-elect is successful.

At times, Obama — the “hope and change” president — seemed to warn against the kind of change Trump has promised.

    American Thinker ^ | 01/11/2017 | Robert Arvay
    The debate is over.  We do not need to repeal Obamacare; it will repeal itself.  Two words summarize why: risk pool. The ACA is founded upon a stunning misconception of the very definition of insurance.  Its advocates have mistakenly conflated two unrelated concepts: insurance and welfare – or, more to the point, risk and charity. People buy insurance in order to mitigate risk.  We buy fire insurance because there is a slight chance that our house will burn down.  If we cannot afford insurance, and our house burns down, we do not go to the insurance company to demand...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/11/2017 | By Carol M. Swain and Steve Feazel
    Often, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. This expression certainly applies to California’s SB 1322, which prohibits the arrest, and in most cases, the detention, of minors engaged in the sex trade. The intent of the law is to treat these children as victims rather than criminals. However, instead of protecting children, the law will likely create more victims. SB 1322 allows for a child prostitute to be apprehended and temporarily held by law enforcement but not arrested or charged with a crime. The child can then be placed in a safe environment by the Department of...

    New analysis from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce (Georgetown Center) finds that President-elect Trump’s 10-year $1 trillion infrastructure proposal could create 11 million jobs, restoring the job growth trajectory derailed by the Great Recession, but also risks overheating the economy. It is not surprising that $1 trillion in spending on infrastructure is certain to have positive employment effects in keeping with standard Keynesian theory. However, the additional spending, in combination with tax cuts and other economic policy shifts proposed by the President-elect, could generate inflation and set the stage for further interest rate hikes. President-elect Trump’s...

The song is ostensibly a tribute to the late Andre the Giant, but Trump tweeted that it is “really about being a winner, and believe me, I’m a winner, bigly.” According to Washington insiders, the performance will...

This video shows one "tactical shooting style" that is not only dangerous but comical. This family is laying down some crazy comical moves in the name of tactical defense shooting. It's hard to follow what they're trying to do like rolling over here, shooting over each others heads and passed one another this is not the...

    In his first public remarks as President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee to be secretary of state, former ExxonMobile chief executive Rex Tillerson will say he believes Russia is “a danger” and that NATO allies are right to be alarmed by its aggression. But he makes no mention of Moscow’s interference in the U.S. election campaign or the future of U.S. sanctions. “I come before you at a pivotal time in both the history of our nation and our world,” Tillerson will testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Wednesday morning in an opening statement that lays out a realist and tough...

    Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. 'Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,' he said. 'Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. 'That has been the extent of...

    After Donald Trump’s surprise victory last November, many observers assumed that former New York major Rudolph Giuliani, one of Trump’s most vocal supporters, would be the pick for Attorney General. It turned out to be Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a favorite target of the left.   The 70-year-old grandfather is a person of no color, which in the politically correct ethos counts as a strike against him. Sessions is also from southern Alabama, and as he noted in the January 10 hearings, his accent betrays him. Critics had been making that a...

    Back in October I wrote about the announcement that the Supreme Court would be hearing the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. This is the long awaited “transgender bathroom law” challenge to the Obama administration’s reinterpretation of Title IX law which sought to morph the definition of “sex” to include the SJW concept of gender identity. At the time I expressed concern over both how a split court might rule on the science behind the question as well as the possibility that they would dodge the fundamental questions entirely and choose to narrowly rule on the legal...

    In January, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his Farewell Address after serving two terms as U.S. President; the five-star General chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decade-long escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further. This...

    ■ President-elect Donald J. Trump continued his war with intelligence agencies, asking if leaks of a dossier of dirt meant we are “living in Nazi Germany.” ■ Democrats are already seeking classified briefings on the dossier’s conclusions and validity and demanding the formation of an independent investigative panel. ■ A key Republican senator is pressing to slow down his party’s effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

    One of the speakers at this year’s Modern Language Association (MLA) meeting brought up a fascinating quote by William Wordsworth that may well be an indictment of the annual conclave of English professors: "To dissect is to murder." If that is so, much of the professoriat at the MLA meeting could be up on assault charges. If he hadn't already passed away, Herman Melville might want to file such a complaint. Melville, of course, is the author of Moby Dick. Many will probably recognize this as the one about a one-legged sea captain pursuing a great big whale. Yet and...
