    Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump...Those states are Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, whose combined 46 electoral votes are enough to swing the result... the scientists, led by University of Michigan computer scientist J. Alex Halderman, “so far have only a circumstantial case” in all three states the deadline for requesting a recount is within the next week... the theory here is that Russia hacked into the three states’ vote-counting systems and produced just enough votes for Trump (or...

    So my colleague and I were catching up after not seeing each other for a while. She’s just accepted a new position as an administrator at the community college up the street from where I work. I wanted to welcome her to the neighborhood and her new job. We arranged to meet at a Starbucks in between our two institutions on Capitol Hill in Seattle. We talked for maybe 30 or 40 minutes. It’s the kind of innocuous catch-up talk that two college administrators do when we’re trying to figure out what we’ve been up to since we last talked....

As balloons came down, the PC(USA) commissioners danced in the aisles to the Kool & The Gang 1980 party standard Celebrate and some attendees openly wept for joy as the denomination announced their official endorsement of pride, gossip, sorcery, covetousness, theft, and sexual immorality as a general category. “Finally,” sobbed self-described “open gossiper” attendee Rebecca Arnett. “I no longer...

    Last night Kelly on her show had two guests, one a weeny gop consultant, and they badmouthed Trump for several minutes. It was AFTER this that Trump made his tweets. You won't hear about the precipitating factor from the media. In other words, Megyn didn't take him on head to head or fearlessly, as she likes to consider herself, and instead hid behind two men, and had them make the offending comments as she sat there innocently nodding in agreement and leading them on. Strong women speak for themselves, and don't need to hide behind men’s trousers. Not fair and...

    You may not believe this, but Donald Trump may have started his run as president with highly dubious claim. After bounding on stage at his headquarters, Trump Tower, the bombastic billionaire looked up at the crowd that surrounded him in awe. “Whoa,” Trump said. “That is some group of people. Thousands. There’s been no crowd like this.” However, we were there, and it seemed like there were no more than a few hundred supporters lined up to watch Trump speak. Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks told Business Insider the campaign did not have an "official tally." However, she said it would...

    Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: Climate change is real, man-made and dangerous. President Obama tweeted that, and it has been repeated by countless others. It is tempting for a politician to claim that 97 percent of experts agree with you. But do they? The 97 percent claim was taken from a study paper by Australian John Cook, Climate Communications Fellow for the Global change Institute at the University of Queensland, and his colleagues, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters in May, 2013. The paper says nothing about the would-be dangers of climate change and it counts the number of...

    Looks like George Zimmerman has taken time out from visiting gun factories and speeding in Texas to take care of more legal business: He plans to ask the state of Florida to reimburse him for up to $300,000 in legal expenses, his lawyer tells the Orlando Sentinel. Because he was acquitted, a Florida statute requires the state to pay his costs for things like expert witnesses and travel, and he plans to file a motion soon, lawyer Mark O'Mara says. "It's a pretty standard motion for a case that the defense won," says a spokesman for Zimmerman's legal team. But...

    Lawyers representing the family members of those killed and injured in the Ft. Hood shooting rampage were outraged today when an Army judge limited prosecutors from introducing evidence, including emails to a known Al Qaeda operative, that would establish accused shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan's "jihadi" motives. The judge's rulings could inhibit the ability of the victims' families to claim in a civil suit that the shootings were an act of terror. Federal lawyers involved in the civil suit claim that the people shot during Hasan's murderous rage were victims of workplace violence, a designation that could sharply limit the damages...

    Hundreds of people rallied in Hong Kong Saturday in support of former U.S. government contractor Edward Snowden, who fled to the semi-autonomous Chinese city last month after confessing to leaking documents on two top secret U.S. surveillance programs. To many, the case raises questions about Snowden’s choice of Hong Kong as a haven as he fights an expected legal battle against extradition, and the broader implications regarding the secrets he has revealed. Amid monsoon rains in the city where Snowden remains in hiding, hundreds of Hong Kongers, expatriates and tourists marched on the U.S. Consulate.

However, the reason appears to be a change to warmer temperatures in the Antarctic lower stratosphere, and experts warn that the improvement may not last.

Big Journalism posted a snippet of audio allegedly showing this: It features KTVA reporters talking among themselves while -- unbeknownst to them -- they were accidentally being recorded on the voicemail of Miller's campaign manager. But it's unclear from the recording precisely what, if anything, was being plotted.

    Dr. Robert Rupp, Associate Professor of History at West Virginia Wesleyan, also does some work as a consultant. Lately, his consulting work led him to advise a controversial new poll out on the U.S. Senate race in West Virginia, commissioned by Marshall University's School of Journalism and Mass Communications. That poll, released on Friday, depicted Democratic candidate Joe Manchin leading Republican John Raese by 10 points. The poll has been met with skepticism throughout West Virginia, since all other polls done by nationally-recognized pollsters show a much tighter race, either showing a tie or either Raese or Manchin leading by...

    Raw, brute force — that is the preferred campaign tactic of Obama and his allies in the Congress. On September 28th, 2010, Senator Max Baucus, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee sent a letter to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) urging the agency to investigate 501(c)(4), 501(c)(5), and 501(c)(6) organizations for “engaging in political activity”, as reported by Politico’s Ben Smith. Senator Baucus cited the 501(c) section of the tax code, writing, “The law requires that political campaign activity by a 501(c)(4), (c)(5) or (c)(6) entity must not be the primary purpose of the organization.” That is technically true. It...

    In the final weeks leading up to the June 8 Democratic Senate runoff in Arkansas, no data proved more pivotal in shaping conventional wisdom than a pair of Research 2000 polls showing challenger Bill Halter holding a lead. And those surveys—which fueled the narrative that Sen.Blanche Lincoln was a goner—may have been bogus, according to the blog that commissioned them. The prospect that polling data in a Senate contest of national consequence may have been faked has sent shockwaves across the campaign world, raising disturbing questions not only about the reliability of suddenly ubiquitous public polls, but about a new...

    Hello from New York where we refuse to apologize for focusing on Goldman Sachs (GS), again. We go with whatever happens to be capturing our inner-irritation or mental attention, in that order. The inescapable stench of the way “financial reform” is being jammed down our throats terrifies me. What do you want me to do? Fake up some shock that the Greeks are crooks? The Greeks have always been regarded shady, in terms of economics. Or at least they’ve had their bad decades. I’m not explaining. Google it. My point is I remain pissed about the financial-reform circus -- I...

    When Annabel Park imagined what it would be like to head a new national political movement, here is what she had in mind: a coming together of engaged, intelligent citizens who had tired of the angry rhetoric and accusations of the Tea Partiers; Americans of all political persuasions joining in a spirit of equanimity to discuss the nation's problems, and maybe even share a laugh. It was this beautiful vision that danced in Park's head on a recent Saturday as she made her way to Busboys and Poets, a cafe in Washington, D.C., for one of nearly 500 Coffee Party...
