    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Thursday criticized President Trump's nominee to lead the EPA for having "the nerve" to say the science behind climate change is still up for debate. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is expected to be confirmed Friday afternoon to lead the EPA, despite Warren's argument that he is a climate change denier who would dismantle the EPA's ability to mitigate the human activity that she said is warming up the plane

    Despite the controversies that have surrounded President Donald Trump's first weeks in office, the Republican would win reelection in 2020 if he were to face the right Democratic opponent, a new survey suggests. A Politico/Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found that although more voters said they would cast their ballots for some nameless Democrat in the next presidential election, the commander in chief would hold on to his seat if challenged by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts. Just over a third, or 35 percent, of voters said they would likely support a Trump reelection bid, compared to 43 percent who...

But with Trump in the White House, that tone seems to be changing.

    Last week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was vaulted to high status among feminists.What did she do? Did she lay down in the street to protect the voting rights of women? Did she take a stand against sex trafficking and female exploitation?No. She knowingly and flagrantly broke a long-standing rule of the Senate. And for this, the left made her a hero.The rule that Warren broke was Section 2 of Rule 19, a century-old prohibition on senators from attributing conduct or motives “unworthy or unbecoming” to another senator.If applied, it requires the offending senator to “take his (or her) seat,” meaning...

    More than 96 percent of gunmen involved in non-fatal shootings are never arrested in Boston. The cops know itbut will they do anything about it? In response to such low numbers, officials at the BPD and the Suffolk County District Attorneys Office smile and claim theyre doing just fine. Non-fatal shootings are tough cases to solve, they argue, usually occurring outdoors, where its difficult to locate physical evidence. The task is made even harder, police say, because witnesses generally refuse to cooperate and help identify shooters. No matter how you parse the numbers, though, one thing has become alarmingly clear:...

    In a rare move, the Senate voted late Tuesday to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren from speaking out against Sen. Jeff Sessions, President Trumps nominee for attorney general. The Republican-led Senate voted 49-43 to uphold a floor ruling that Warren (D-Mass.) violated Senate Rule 19 by impugning the character of Sessions during her lengthy speech against his confirmation. A separate vote to allow Warren to continue to speak failed effectively silencing the outspoken progressive from continuing her anti-Sessions speech. The dust-up on the Senate floor began shortly before 7 p.m. when Warren took the microphone to make a long, impassioned...

By a vote of 49-43, Senator Warren was then barred from speaking on the floor until Senator Sessions nomination debate is complete (likely tomorrow evening).... McConnell defended the decision, noting Warren had been warned. "Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation," he said after the vote. "Nevertheless, she persisted."

"I mean he ought to be ashamed of himself for this kind of stuff, calling her a crook and that kind of nonsense. She's a good person, nothing she did involved breaches of national security," Dukakis said in an interview on WABC radio with Rita Cosby. "She was investigated for God knows how long about Libya, and a Republican-dominated committee exonerated her." Dukakis went on to say that Trump needed to change his behavior and...

    ExxonMobil has lost a key battle in an investigation into whether the oil giant misled the public about the dangers of climate change. A Massachusetts judge ordered Exxon (XOM) on Wednesday to hand over more than four decades of the company's climate change research. The court rejected Exxon's emergency motion to kill the demand from Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, who is investigating allegations the company ignored internal scientific research going back to the 1970s. The ruling came on the same day that longtime Exxon boss Rex Tillerson was being grilled by Congress about the company's climate change tactics at...

    BOSTON Lacking authority to change the laws of physics to allow more sunlight on the darkest days of winter, a special commission is instead considering whether Massachusetts should change the laws of man and observe daylight saving time year-round. If adopted, Massachusetts residents wouldn't have to set their clocks back in November and forward in March, as most of the U.S. does. Benefits of having daylight saving time throughout the year could include energy savings and less seasonal depression, proponents suggest

In 2010, two years after electing him president, voters trounced Obamas party, handing Democrats the biggest midterm losses in 72 years. Obama was...

    Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts says Besty DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump's pick to run the Department of Education, has a "radical political philosophy" and a thin resume for the job.

DeVos hasn't held top policy-making positions in the past, unlike other picks for the position by past presidents. Warren said that DeVos has "virtually no experience" in handling student debt, developing standards for school accountability, or improving schools - the...
