    Andrea Mitchell joined Chris Matthews in insisting that President Trump decide to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in part to benefit Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama Roy Moore. Trump made the move Wednesday because the White House “wanted to get this out before Alabama.”

    'If I had thought there was a man detailing a sexual assault strategy to me I would have contacted the FBI and not just brought it to the attention of my producers. 'Everybody had to kiss the ring of Donald because he was making the big money for NBC at the time.' He was the host of The Apprentice at the time. He then hit out further at the president, bringing up the laundry list of women who have come forward to accuse Trump of sexually harassing or assaulting them at some point in his career. He continued: 'As I...

    One year after a Republican accused of sexual misconduct was elected president, and Democrats are the ones in turmoil about misogynistic behavior in their ranks. Renewed media attention on sexual harassment and assault led to the twin New York Times and New Yorker exposés on Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood mogul and Democratic donor. But Democrats did not rally to protect one of their own, and his attempt to curry sympathy with a pledge to fight the NRA fell flat. The subsequent #MeToo phenomenon continues to upend the left-leaning political and media worlds, with accusations of inappropriate behavior ensnaring liberal darling...

    Amid the slithering mess of problems that emerged in 2017, the one that bothers me most is that people don't seem to know what's true anymore. "Facts" this year got put in quotation marks. All the other political difficulties of the Donald Trump era are subsumed in this one. If we aren't sure what's true, how can we act to make things better? If we don't know where we are on the map, how do we know which way to move? Democracy assumes a well-informed citizenry that argues about solutions — not about facts. We can all choose our favorite...

    ix Thanksgivings ago, as a junior White House speechwriter, I wrote a video script for President Obama. While not exactly destined for the history books, I thought it was a warm, generous celebration of the holiday. I was proud of my work. That is, until Fox News got ahold of it. It turned out I had forgotten to include a reference to God in the remarks. “President Obama has caused outrage with his Thanksgiving speech,” declared Fox Nation, not mentioning that George W. Bush also frequently omitted the almighty from Thanksgiving. Not to be outdone, conservative pundit Ben Shapiro tweeted...

    Women vomit, march, then vie for office in record numbers under Trump Ellen Wulfhorst 4 Min Read NEW YORK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - When late-night election returns showed Donald Trump winning the U.S. presidency last November, Laura Moser vomited and Christine Lui Chen crawled into bed to cling to her young daughter. Then they got down to business and joined the thousands of women who have responded to the Trump presidency by running for political office. More than 20,000 women in the United States with an interest in running for office have contacted Emily’s List, an advocacy group supporting female...

    Former President George HW Bush has apologized after an actress claimed he 'sexually assaulted' her while he was in his wheelchair. Heather Lind, 34, who starred in AMC's series 'Turn: Washington's Spies', made the allegations against the 93-year-old former president on Instagram in a lengthy post with accompanying photos. 'When I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, he sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo. He didn't shake my hand. He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush...

    A guest on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” stated that conservative Christians like Roy Moore aren’t actually Christian.WATCH:(video at link)After host Joy Reid referred to Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore as the “darling of the Christian right,” guest Rev. William Barber said that right-wing Christians weren’t real Christians. Reid asked, “Judge Roy Moore, it is interesting. He is a darling of the Christian right. But reading this article this week about how he once stood steadfast against removing segregation and poll taxes from the Alabama Constitution and yet he fits in fine. Why is that?”Barber answered, “I just can’t call it ‘Christian right.’...

    The Audience Strategy Editor at The New York Times was caught on hidden camera boasting of his newspaper’s version of journalistic ethics. In a newly-released video by Project Veritas, the editor, Nicholas Dudich, is asked about being objective at the Times. “No I’m not, that’s why I’m here,” Dudich replies. Dudich, who manages videos which go on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram for the Times, said “my voice is on…my imprint is on every video we do.” Dudich goes on to explain what he might do to target President Trump: “I’d target his businesses, his dumb f–k of a son, Donald...

    Former top White House strategist Steve Bannon wanted to place a spy inside Facebook to monitor the social-media giant’s hiring just weeks before he was named to run Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, according to a report on Monday. Bannon, who resigned from the White House last month, got the idea to plant a mole from Chris Gacek, a former congressional staffer who now works for the Family Research Council, a group that lobbies against abortion and LGBT rights, BuzzFeed News reported, citing an email exchange between the two. “There is one for a DC-based ‘Public Policy Manager’ at Facebook’s What’s...

    Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has taken to scaremongering, with well-worn Democratic Party talking points regarding health-insurance policy. Between yuks, he occasionally accuses Republicans of being would-be baby killers, which is treated as an important political development because, well, Jimmy Kimmel is famous. This week, the comedian was back to explain why the new Graham-Cassidy Republican “repeal” bill is bad news. There were only two things wrong: Almost everything he said was either completely untrue or highly misleading, and his simplistic emotional appeal was completely disconnected from the real world. The comedian’s interest in policy was sparked by the...

    In an article I posted here in July, I lamented the fact that the National Endowment for the Humanities had funded the research for Professor Nancy MacLean’s hatchet job of a book entitled Democracy in Chains. I was sure that the government’s largesse was not limited to just this nasty book and therefore was not surprised when I came across this article by Christine Roe, “From Cactus Theater to the Met, US Government Pours Hundreds of Millions Into Well-Heeled Arts.” Based on a new report from that invaluable organization, Open the Books, Roe highlighted numerous cases where federal money had...
  • Director Guillermo Del Toro: Trump’s America a ‘Cancer’

    Mexican director Guillermo del Toro hopes his latest critically-acclaimed film can help repair what he calls a broken political system following President Donald Trump’s election. The director, whose Cold War fairy-tale drama The Shape of Water just won the coveted Golden Lion at this year’s Venice Film Festival, told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival this week that Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan was a callback to a time in 1960s America in which if you were “white, Anglo-Saxon and Protestant, it was a great time to be alive,” but not if you were “anything else.” “It’s...

    Exclusive: ‘The Klingons are going to help us look at certain sides of ourselves and our country’ Star Trek: Discovery will continue the venerated sci-fi tradition of using a fantastic setting to tackle real-world issues — only in a bigger way than any Trek series has done before. The upcoming CBS All Access drama tells the serialized story of a war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. The show is set a decade before 1966’s original series — which premiered 51 years ago today — during which the Federation and Klingons were in a Cold War...

Zuckerman. “Adding an iconic media property like The Daily News not only expands our tremendous portfolio of newspaper brands, it also allows us to grow our digital platform and broaden our services for advertisers and marketers,” Dearborn said.

    Contrary to the furious spin from Hillary Clinton’s adversaries in the media and Republican Party, FBI Director James Comey did not undercut Hillary’s truthfulness on her State Department emails. In fact, his statement and testimony affirm that Hillary has been honest about the email issue from day one. Here are the facts, not the spin. “We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.” — James Comey On various occasions over the past fifteen months, Hillary has said that she did not send or receive emails containing classified information or any material marked as classified. This, to the...

    The University of Cincinnati attempts to draw connections between the amount of anger an individual exhibits, and their political preferences. “The motorist tailgating you on the highway might be doing more than just getting you upset — they could also be influencing your political views,” Koester wrote. Salerno, an assistant professor of marketing, and a second professor from University of Manitoba, came to this bizarre conclusion upon “multiple studies that included more than 1,000 participants.”

    Donald Trump signed away Obama-era flood standards just weeks before Hurricane Harvey hit Texas in a bid to get infrastructure projects approved more quickly. The rule signed by former president Barack Obama in 2015 had not yet come into effect but aimed to make infrastructure more resilient to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and flooding. Those who backed Obama’s rules believed they would make people safer by putting roads, bridges and other infrastructure on safer ground, NPR reported, but Trump rescinded the rule several weeks ago in an attempt to speed up the time it...
