    Several public funds that hold shares of Facebook stock are backing a proposal to remove CEO Mark Zuckerberg from his role as chairman of the company's board. State treasurers in Illinois, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania as well as New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer co-filed the proposal on Wednesday, alongside the hedge fund Trillium Asset Management, which first floated the idea. The proposal, which requests that the positions of CEO and chairman of the board be separated, is set to be voted on at the company’s annual shareholder meeting in May. "Facebook plays an outsized role in our society and...

    Cory James, a reporter for Fresno, California’s KFSN TV action news, began his career reporting on hard news, but he’s now becoming internet famous on a larger scale simply for going on a Disney theme park ride. This week marked the opening of the new Guardians of the Galaxy—Mission: Breakout! ride at Disney’s California Adventure (sorry, Florida fans; Universal still has Marvel theme park rights on the east coast) and in addition to fans swarming the park, TV news crews sent folks like Cory to get some entertainment coverage.

    “Today America, the American people were humiliated by their own president. Not by international terrorists, not by [the] enemy’s troops. This time Washington was slapped by own master, who has complicated the urgent tasks for the incoming team in the extreme,” Zakharova wrote, labeling the current administration “a group of foreign policy losers, bitter and narrow-minded.” “Today, Obama officially admitted it,” she wrote. comment on US President Barack Obama’s approval of new anti-Russian measures, arguing Obama’s “bitter” and “helpless” team did a disfavor to the White House’s reputation.

    During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, First Lady Michelle Obama pretty much compared the relationship between her husband and the rest of the country to that of a parent and an injured child. Noting that we’re now feeling what not having hope feels like, Mrs. Obama explained how “hope” was more than a slogan for Barack Obama. “Our children respond to crises the way they see us respond,” Mrs. Obama said. “You know, it’s like the toddler that bumps his head on the table and they look up at you to figure out if it hurts.” She went on to...

    Hillary Clinton cast Donald Trump as out of touch with the United States while campaigning Monday in Delaware, arguing that the Republican front-runner flies into states, gives speeches and then returns to the lap of luxury without listening to voters' problems. "Donald Trump says wages are too high in America and doesn't support raising the minimum wage and I have said, 'Come out of those towers named for yourself and actually talk and listen to people,'" Clinton said. "At some point, if you want to be president of the United States, you have to get familiar with the United States,...

    Donald Trump relentlessly mocked Ohio Gov. John Kasich's campaign-trail eating habits on Monday. During a rally in Rhode Island, the Republican presidential frontrunner said that the Ohio governor should learn from Trump's children, whom Trump has urged to eat modest portions of food. "Did you see him? He has a news conference all the time when he's eating. I have never seen a human being eat in such a disgusting fashion," Trump said of Kasich. He continued: "I'd say, 'Children, small, little bites.' This guy takes a pancake and he's shoving it in his mouth. It's disgusting. Do you want...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will hold a highly anticipated meeting with President Obama on November 9, the White House announced Wednesday. Obama and Netanyahu are expected to discuss the Iran nuclear agreement and a new security assistance deal, among other issues. “Prime Minister Netanyahu's visit is a demonstration of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel as well as the unprecedented security cooperation, including our close consultations to further enhance Israel's security,” Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement.

    And also he's pretty sure they got a bigger piece of cake. Barack Obama in a speech on Friday took an innovative step forward in policy discussion and blamed someone else for all of his troubles. Speaking on addressing the concerns of voters, the President claimed the administration would have gotten  away with it, if it weren't for those damn Republicans. "The only holdout standing in he way of change for tens of millions of Americans are some Republicans in congress," Obama told an enthusiastic Minneapolis crowd.  "I just want to be real blunt.

    After previously saying America’s borders are more secure than ever, the White House on Tuesday seemingly blamed Republicans for apparent holes along the southern boundary, evidenced by the flood of unaccompanied children streaming into the U.S. from Mexico, Central America and elsewhere. White House press secretary Josh Earnest challenged Republicans, if they are truly concerned about border security, to back the comprehensive immigration reform package. “If we really wanted to solve this problem, one good way to do it is for those Republicans to get on board … and support common sense immigration reform,” Mr. Earnest told reporters.

    When Barack Obama was running for the presidency, there were a number of people who warned he wasn’t ready for prime time – that he’d never really “done anything or run anything”. That he had never demonstrated any penchant for leadership at any time in his life, nor had he ever had any executive experience. That most of his adult life had been political campaigns for the next highest office – moving directly from one to the next with few if any accomplishments in-between. Those people were shouted down by their “betters” claiming Mr. Obama was hip, wicked smart, charming,...

    Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the...

    For those uninsured, apparently the thing that was keeping them from getting health insurance was the fact that President Obama did not make a cat-pun in order to pitch the Affordable Care Act. Or, as the President likes to call it, the "Adorable Care Act." On President Obama's personal (and verified) Twitter account, the Commander in Chief posted a picture of kittens. To the right of the kittens, a text box reads: "Treat yourself right this Valentine's Day. Get pamPURRED with health care. ADORABLE CARE ACT" There are also hearts on the card. Here is a screen shot from the...

    Foreign Policy: The latest U.S. ally to openly sneer at us is a senior British defense adviser who says President Obama has "devalued the deterrent effect of American military capability" in the world. In his first campaign for president, in April 2007, Barack Obama complained George W. Bush's war in Iraq cost the U.S. "in influence and respect." Because of Iraq, he said, "many around the world are disappointed with our actions, and many in our own country have come to doubt either our wisdom or our capacity to shape events beyond our borders. Some have even suggested that America's...
