  • Why Pelosi Doesn't Need a Full House Vote for an Impeachment Inquiry, Despite Trump's Demand

    President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that he intends to send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stating that, until the full House votes to authorize the chamber's ongoing impeachment inquiry, the administration will not comply with subpoenas and other demands for witness testimony and documents. Trump and Republicans—who've been daring Pelosi to vote on the matter—believe that such a move would put vulnerable swing state Democrats in a tough spot and force members to more officially go on the record, as all but a handful of House Democrats support an impeachment inquiry into Trump. The White House has...

    Prominent GOP consultant Mike Murphy claimed on Wednesday that he was told by a Republican senator that the majority of Republican senators "would vote to impeach" President Donald Trump if they could do so anonymously. "These Senate Republicans, should the Democrats vote impeachment, which is far more likely than not, are going to be pinned down to a yes/no answer," Murphy, who previously advised Republican politicians including Mitt Romney, John McCain and Jeb Bush, said in an interview with MSNBC. "The politics of it will get worse and worse for Trump," the Republican political consultant, who has long been critical...
  • POLITICS DONALD TRUMP'S APPROVAL RATING SLIDES TO 36%, THE LOWEST IT'S BEEN SINCE JANUARY (BARF)

    Amid numerous political scandals and an unfurling trade war with China that shows little sign of de-escalation, President Donald Trump lacks the broad confidence of the American public, according to a new AP-NORC poll. Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job, compared with 36 percent who approve. Predictably, the partisan divides swing favorably or unfavorably towards the president depending on political affiliation. But, notably, the coveted class of self-identified political independents remains opposed to the president, with 65 percent disapproving of the way he is handling his job. Trump's approval ratings have not...

    I’ve always loved the news. When I was a kid growing up in Detroit, I found the AM dial on the radio and was hooked. In the dentist office, I’d always grab Newsweek over Highlights for Kids. Maybe that had something to do with the fact that I’d already done the hidden images in the drawing on the last page, but I really liked the political cartoons and quote page. That’s part of why what news magazines have become is so disappointing to me.I get that they have to make money. But when Newsweek sold for a dollar a few...

    A tweet that lists "companies supporting Trump's re-election" went viral on Thursday, causing chatter among the anti-President Donald Trump crowd on the internet. The list includes fast food stalwarts such as McDonald's, Wendy's, In-N-Out and Chick-fil-A, as well as chain restaurants like Olive Garden. The call to shun restaurants came after talk of a mass boycott of SoulCycle and Equinox after it was revealed their owner, billionaire Stephen Ross, was hosting a fundraising event for Trump on Friday.

    “Trump's father, Fred Trump, was arrested after a KKK riot in Queens, New York, in 1927.” (Newsweek, 1/15/18.)“In 1927, Donald Trump’s Father was arrested after a Klan Riot in Queens.” Washington Post (2/29/16.)(Turns out, the “KKK riot” was in fact a Memorial Day Parade in which a few Klan members—minus robes and hoods—participated. And Fred Trump was not among those, as clarified by the Washington Examiner.)  Nonetheless, it appears that the mainstream media regards the political associations of a U.S. president (or U.S. Presidential candidate’s) parent—however brief, tenuous, ancient or bogus-- of enormous import. No?Fine. Then let’s apply the same...

    A group of right-wing activists filed a "formal complaint" with the New Castle Police Department, in New York, this weekend calling for criminal charges to be brought against a notable area resident: former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton. Members from the Equal Justice Tour, a group of radical right-wing activists advocating for the arrest of Clinton, marched to the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate's local police department near her home in Chappaqua on Saturday to drop off the complaint documents with officers. A New Castle Police Department officer confirmed to Newsweek their arrival at roughly 2:30 p.m. local time. A...

    Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg did his best Friday night to ignore a small but vocal group of protesters who yelled anti-gay slurs and told him to "repent" during a speech in Dallas, Texas. Buttigieg, the openly gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was speaking at an event for the Dallas County Democratic Party when he was interrupted several times by a handful of protesters who hurled, among other anti-gay remarks, "marriage is between a man and a woman" and "what about the babies?" Part of the interruption was caught on video by CNN reporter DJ Judd. Rather than confront the...

    Climate change caused by humans could have caused droughts as far back as 1900, according to a study. Scientists looked at data on the climate, as well as on tree rings dating back up to 900 years, giving an insight into moisture levels in soil over a long period of time. In research published in the journal Nature, the team showed that as the amount of greenhouse gasses pumped into the atmosphere rose following the industrial revolution, droughts spiked between 1900 and 1949. “The human consequences of this, particularly drying over large parts of North America and Eurasia, are likely...

    ‘GOD DOESN’T HAVE A POLITICAL PARTY’ Appearing as the nightcap for CNN's five-part Town Hall segment on Monday, 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg addressed concerns over his lack of political experience, his age and his views on how faith can be used to unite Christians from all political spectrums. Buttigieg, who is the current mayor of South Bend, Indiana, talked about his faith at the end of the hour-long question and answer session. "You've talked opening about your strong Christian faith, as well as your identity as a happily-married gay man. I myself am a bi-sexual Christian woman," Harvard freshman...

    As special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is reportedly coming to an end, elderly and sick Americans are trying to hold on to their lives so they can read the highly-anticipated report that has been nearly two years in the making. World War II veteran Mitchell Tendler—a man who survived numerous historic milestones, including the Korean War, Vietnam, Watergate and President BIll Clinton’s impeachment—fell sick on Dec. 29, at 93 years old, reported NPR.

    New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to defend herself against claims promoted by Donald Trump, Jr. and others that she changes her accent to pander to minority audiences. In a string of Saturday evening tweets, the first-term Democrat wrote that her habit of "code-switching" was informed by years of navigating professional and social environments as a woman of color. "Next time you‘re told straight hair is 'unprofessional' and that speaking like your parents do is 'uneducated,' then you can complain about code-switching," she wrote, referring to the practice of changing speech patterns based on environment. "Code-switching is a tool communities...

    Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday called Fox News “AOC TMZ” and blamed the conservative network for her poor favorability rating in a new poll. A Gallup poll released Friday showed that more Americans, 41 percent, viewed her unfavorably than favorably (31 percent). Her unfavorably rating climbed up from 26 percent in September, while her favorability rating also increased from 24 percent, meaning her net favorability dropped from -2 percentage points to -10 percentage points. Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting that she has net favorable ratings from women, people ages 18 to 34 and people who are not white. “If you...

    A Florida mom and pediatrician warned parents to better monitor their children’s internet activity after she found a disturbing clip that appeared to encourage children to harm themselves, inserted into gaming videos on YouTube and YouTube Kids. Dr. Free Hess, from Gainesville, Florida, found the 9-second-long suicide instructions sandwiched between clips of the Nintendo game Splatoon last week and shared it online to caution other parents. "Remember kids, sideways for attention, longways for results," a man said while demonstrating the cutting motion on his arm. "End it." The man, identified by CBS News as YouTuber Filthy Frank, has over 6.2...

They discovered a high level of concern about masculinity "was strongly associated with interest in these search topics." They then correlated the geopgrahic dispersion of these search topics in 2016 with how such areas voted in that year's election, finding "that support for Trump in the 2016 election was higher in areas that had more searches...
