    MSNBC ^ | March 29, 2017 | Jacob Pramuk
    Ivanka Trump is joining the White House in an official role. President Donald Trump's elder daughter will take an unpaid role as a government employee, the White House confirmed Wednesday. Her husband, Jared Kushner, already holds an unpaid government position. The New York Times first reported the news Wednesday. Ivanka Trump already has a White House office but fueled ethics concerns when she said that she would advise her father informally, the Times said. Taking a government spot will require more stringent ethics rules. Her lawyer said she plans to file financial disclosure forms required of employees....

    Devin Nunes Chief of the House Intelligence Committee has put the Committee on hold in their investigations of Trump Transition Team leaks and Russia/Trump probe. So Comey and Rogers are holding up major investigations. It seems this would be embarrassing to Comey, but honestly after just watching his questioning on Capitol Hill on March 20, 2017 by Trey Gowdy, I am questioning the mental health of Comey. In trying to understand who could have briefed President Obama of the Trump surveillance which ended up in two newspapers, Gowdy repeatedly questioned Comey and gave him every chance to tell the truth....

    Huffington Post author Zeba Blay argued last week that, when white people paint black people, it is an example of "white privilege," as whites are profiteering off of black pain. The article, titled "When White People Profit Off Of Black Pain," was inspired by a painting of Emmett Till by a woman, Dana Schutz, who Ms. Blay repeatedly pointed out is white. "What exactly are the implications of white artists creating (and profiting) off of work that depicts black trauma and black pain?" the article begins. White people are constantly looking to exploit black people, Ms. Blay argues, writing, "we...

    IWB ^ | Gabrielle Seunagal
    Yesterday, headlines were made when anti abortion activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were slammed with a total of 15 felonies by California prosecutors. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra alerted the world to the fact that Daleiden and Merritt invaded the privacy of medical doctors and health care providers by recording/filming activities without their consent. Daleiden labeled the charges as “bogus,” stating that they stemmed from political cronies at Planned Parenthood; Planned Parenthood refuted the argument, stating that women and healthcare providers cannot be targeted without consequence.

    You have probably concluded from the first three essays in this series that I am a Christian. You would be correct to assume so. I am one of the 2.2 billion people on this planet that shape their worldview based on the principle that Jesus of Nazareth was more than man. Like all Christians, I fail frequently in my attempts to live up to the standard set by Christ, and I rely on a belief that God accepts my frailty and forgives my transgressions as I recognize, repent from, and atone for them. I would imagine my view of Christianity...

    Unlike the Soviet Union—which collapsed and split into over a dozen non-communist nations, or China, whose leaders maintain the rule and ideology of the Communist Party but introduced capitalist markets and allow interaction with the outside world, North Korea has remained an isolated totalitarian state, coming in and out of news headlines as it menacingly brandishes nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Some have argued that North Korea isn’t exactly communist, as the country removed all references to communism and Karl Marx from its constitution in the 2000s, and because it follows a program of extreme nationalism and implicit dynastic succession....

    Was President Trump’s first attempt at getting a healthcare bill a failure? Your answer to that question probably depends on whether you are a goals-thinker or a systems-thinker. If you see the world in terms of goals, you would say the healthcare bill did not get enough votes on the first try, and therefore it is clearly a Trump/Ryan failure. But if you see the world in terms of systems, things look a lot better. I talk about the advantages of systems over goals in my book. The quick summary is that a system is something you do on a...

    It's time to start planning for what we'll do when the current healthcare system implodes. __ As with many other complex, opaque systems in the U.S., only those toiling in the murky depths of the healthcare system know just how broken the entire system is. Only those dealing daily with the perverse incentives, the Kafkaesque procedures, the endlessly negative unintended consequences, the soul-deadening paper-shuffling, the myriad forms of fraud, the recalcitrant patients who don't follow recommendations but demand to be magically returned to health anyway, and of course the hopelessness of the financial future of a system with runaway costs,...

    No leader can reverse the dynamics of mutually reinforcing crises. __ Commentators seem split into three camps: those who see Trump as a manifestation of smouldering social/economic ills, those who see Trump and his supporters as the cause of those ills, and those who see Trump as both manifestation and cause of those ills. I think this misses the point, which is the overlapping crises unfolding in this decade-- diminishing returns on skyrocketing debts, the demographics of an aging populace, the erosion of the social contract and the profound disunity of political elites--will continue expanding and feeding on each other...

    White House or Waffle House, who cares? They like to tell the GOP which presidential candidates they “fear the most.” This usually ends up with Republicans running someone like John McCain or Jeb Bush. They like to offer “helpful” strategy suggestions which, for the last ten years, have been nothing but pathways to conservative failure. They enjoy telling the RNC what it should do “for the good of the two-party system,” and that advice always boils down to “don’t fight, roll over, and give us what we want.” They’re Democrats in office and in the media - and we’re all...

    There simply is no Christian analogue, in all of history, to today's Islamic terrorism It’s amazing how stupid smart people can seem when intent on putting a square peg in a round hole. This is seen continually when certain apologists try to dig Islam out of its hole—the one dug deeper every time there’s another terrorist act. Consider the recent London jihadist attack by Muslim convert Khalid Masood. Globe & Fail columnist Doug Saunders, proving he missed his calling as a contortionist, actually tweeted that Masood, like the “authors of UK’s other big Jihadi attacks, was not a Muslim. Born...

    In parts 1 through 4, we learned the U.S. is a republican structure of government. Continuing on with the airplane analogy, our system contains a variety of control cockpits, or the best parts of various forms of government. For example, our system contains one aspect of democracy: voting once per year for five minutes; monarchy: U.S. president for four years; oligarchy: most school boards for four years. We also learned the architects reserved structural maintenance solely and exclusively in the hands of the governed – remember Mrs. Eliza Powel? After our introduction to her, we should be inspired to learn...

    Things don't always go as planned on a hog hunt. These hunters captured awesome and hilarious footage of hog hunting gone wrong. Feral hogs are intelligent animals. Couple this intelligence with their size, speed, and strength, and a hog can quickly turn the tables on an unprepared hunter. As these hunters demonstrated, you always need to be on your toes when hunting feral hogs, especially when they are at close range. A hog is not as dangerous as an angry big trophy like a buffalo or elephant, but a charging hog can quickly turn an ordinary hunt into a dangerous...

    One of the worst features of America in the 1940s and 50s was the persistent demand for national loyalty oaths. In those days, people were expected to declare their support for the U.S. and if they didn’t, they could be blackballed, expelled, or otherwise punished. The ideological fervor for conformity abated for decades, but has recently returned on our college campuses in the form of mandatory “diversity statements” by faculty members and especially prospective faculty members. The difference is that instead of having to pledge adherence to America in its battle with communism, the new pledge is adherence to the...

Once a moose is down, they round up the four-wheelers to haul it back to camp, hang it, and start their card-playing marathon of all-you-can-eat moose steaks and free-flowing beer, whiskey, and man-cave talk. The shot and celebration is what they like most about moose hunting. Their claim in the feud is...

    How To Protect Your Children From The Human Traffickers And Sexual Perverts That Are Lurking At Your Favorite Retail Stores We live in a society where human traffickers and sexual perverts seem to be multiplying. It has been reported that there are 747,408 registered sex offenders in the United States, but the latest figure we have is now about five years old, so that total is almost certainly significantly higher today. It has also been reported that there are 1.5 million victims of human trafficking in the United States, and most of those are female. In every community in the...

She said officials have four or five manufacturing projects underway and three projects “we can’t talk about yet.” Bailey said project number one involves a company moving from Cedar Bluff, Va. to Princeton. “Project number one is Elgin Industries/Tabor Machines,” Bailey...

    WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Former Hubbard, Ohio mayor Richard Keenan, who now admits to raping a young child, is facing life behind bars. He was visibly shaken Friday as he changed his plea to guilty on 20 counts of sex crimes, including eight counts of rape. Keenan agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years. According to court documents, the abuse began as early as September 2013 when the victim — who Keenan knew — was just 4 years old. “It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify...

    Cenk Uygur bristles at the notion that the progressive media company he co-founded more than a decade ago, the Young Turks, is becoming the Breitbart of the left—that is, a pugilistic news outlet waging an ideological war with the establishment class. If you ask him, the comparison is backward. "Andrew Breitbart, when he was on my show before he passed away, said they emulated us, not the other way around," Uygur told me in mid-March, after finishing a panel at South by Southwest. "They get a lot of credit now because our idiot president reads them, but in terms of...

    Pepper spray seems to be the weapon of choice for the anti-Trump left in California since the election. Anti-Trump agitators pepper-sprayed Trump supporters attending a Milo Yiannopoulos event in Berkeley last month, and a "Make America Great Again" march in Huntington Beach turned violent in similar fashion on Saturday, leading to four arrests. The march drew about 2,000 Trump supporters -- many of them wearing MAGA hats and waving American flags, according to the Orange County Register. After about a dozen agitators wearing black masks formed a wall blocking the marchers as they made their way down to Bolsa Chica...
