    This Thanksgiving, President Obama is calling for Americans to lend a helping hand to another group of pilgrims fleeing persecution. "Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail, the world is still full of pilgrims - men and women who want nothing more than the chance for a safer, better future for themselves and their families," Obama said in his weekly address Thursday. "What makes America America is that we offer that chance."

    President Obama is again excoriating Republicans for raising concerns about Syrian refugees setting in America after the terrorist attacks in Paris. In a press conference in the Philippines on Tuesday, he continued the anti-Republican narrative he set on Monday by mocking Republicans for talking tough, but running scared from widows and orphans. “First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans,” he said. “That doesn’t sound very tough to me.” Obama appeared personally disturbed by political conversation going on back in the United States, condemning Republicans for contributing to...

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told members of Congress Wednesday that he will announce a new administrative effort this week to stop corporate inversions, as attempts at legislation to stop companies from moving their headquarters out of the U.S. have failed. Lew said in a letter to lawmakers that he would issue "additional targeted guidance to deter and reduce further the economic benefits of corporate inversions." Lew first took action to undercut the tax benefits of inversions in September 2014, announcing several specific rules meant to prevent companies from moving their headquarters abroad for tax purposes and limiting the tax breaks...

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., linked climate change to the spread of terrorist groups overseas. At the second Democratic presidential debate, held Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa, Sanders was asked whether he stood by his previous claims that climate change was the No. 1 threat to national security. He said he did."Climate change is directly related to the rise of global terrorism," Sanders said, adding that it would cause nations to start "struggling over limited amounts of water, limited amounts...

When the younger Bush brother came to San Francisco last July, the presidential hopeful made a concerted effort to show plugged-in San Franciscans that he, too, understood the disruptive power of technology. This manifested in predictable ways, such as when he hailed an Uber on his way to visit SF-based Thumbtack. He also, it seems, took advantage of the classic tech-job perk:...

    According to Donald Trump, Janet Yellen's decision to delay hiking interest rates is motivated by politics. This is a political thing, keeping these interest rates at this level, Trump, the billionaire Republican presidential candidate, said in a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg Television's Stephanie Ruhle. Janet Yellen for political reasons is keeping interest rates so low that the next guy or person who takes over as president could have a real problem. That problem spurred by raising rates, Trump argued, could be a recession or worse. On the other hand, Trump faulted the Federal Reserve for not having acted sooner. Yellen...

One can imagine Israelis doing a spit take on that headline. This is the same Jimmy Carter who wrote a book trashing Israel for having a racist apartheid system that oppresses the Palestinians. They'd also worry this only inflates Carter's massive ego.
