    INSIGHT magazine ^ | August 12, 2002 | Kelly Patricia O'Meara
    Americans are becoming only too aware of the financial tricks and deceit in which some of the nation's largest and most respected corporations engaged during the Clinton administration to pump up stock prices with fraudulently inflated profits. When the huge bubble no longer could be sustained the men and women at the top would bail out of their stock and pocket millions, leaving pensioners and other investors holding an empty bag. To market insiders these are known as "pump and dumps." While federal investigators are looking into the corporate malfeasance at Enron, WorldCom, Qwest Communications, AOL Time Warner and...

    The Post reports: President Trump is expected to phase out the Obama-era program that grants work permits to about 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, but delay its end for six months to give Congress time to pass legislation to replace it, according to multiple people briefed on the president's discussions.
  • Legal challenge to Arpaio pardon begins (Wait...what?)

    After President Trump’s pardon of ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been convicted of criminal contempt for violating a court order designed to stop the violation of the constitutional rights of suspected illegal immigrants, conventional wisdom — and certainly the Trump administration — would have us believe that Trump’s pardon powers are unlimited. However, never before has someone stretched the pardon power so beyond its original intent. Trump has now drawn scrutiny not simply from critics of his racist rhetoric but from the court itself. The Arizona Republic Reports: U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton canceled former Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s upcoming...

    Washington Post ^ | August 23, 2017 | By Jennifer Rubin
    Only 24 hours after he read a serious speech off a teleprompter committing to send more young men and women to fight in Afghanistan, President Trump reverted to form, delivering a rambling, rage-filled, 77-minute harangue that was alternately defensive, angry, accusatory and just plain weird. Like a trapped animal, he lashed out in every direction, trying unsuccessfully to draw blood. The opening 15 minutes or so were devoted to relitigating — and lying about — his response to the Charlottesville incident. He omitted his words a few days after the death of Heather Heyer in which he claimed that there...
  • Is Trump OK? President’s Mental Stability a 'Serious Problem,' Conservatives Say

    MSN News ^ | June 6, 2017 | Greg Price
    President Donald Trump’s “mental stability” was questioned Monday morning by a conservative Washington Post columnist in lieu of his often chaotic first four-and-half months in office, as well as his response and tweetstorm to the terrorist attacks in London. The columnist, Jennifer Rubin, was a guest on CNN’s New Day and specifically called out Trump for being “erratic” and “unreliable,” the latest comments by a member of the Republican’s own party and the media to question his fitness for office.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Jennifer Rubin is the Washington Post‘s “right” columnist, though many people would dispute that designation. Rubin has made no secret of her Trump hatred, which came through today on MSNBC. Rubin branded several of Trump’s cabinet and high level nominees “ignoramuses.” “I wish I could say that Ben Carson is the only person who doesn’t have experience in his area. You mentioned Tillerson. We also have Terry Branstad, who is the ambassador to China. He’s been the Governor of Iowa! And I like her, I think she’s smart, Nikki Haley, terrific person, but she’s going to the UN. But does...

    If, as appears increasingly likely, Hillary Clinton wins today, the Republicans most responsible for the calamity will stand ready to spout a load of excuses they've been accumulating since the Republican National Convention, when it became reasonably apparent that Donald Trump was going to run his general-election campaign just the way he did his primary race. Let's save them the trouble:

    When the KKK’s favorite candidate — a man who mocks a disabled reporter, brags about sexually assaulting women, dabbles in anti-Semitic tropes and paints Mexican immigrants as “rapists” — gets elected, many of us ask rightly ask: What has become of the openhearted, tolerant, decent America so many of us were certain would reject a character like Donald Trump? As the country awakes bleary-eyed and disoriented, we are certain that the lights will come up, the horror film will end and all will be put back to normal. The alt-right will go lick its wounds, the lying opportunists will be...

    The Washington Post ^ | October 26, 2016 | Jennifer Rubin
    We’ve made the distinction before, but it bears repeating: There are professional, fair and conscientious news people on Fox News. No one could watch the final debate and deny that Chris Wallace is among the best in the business. Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly have earned their place among top debate moderators and interviewers. What we are about to discuss does not apply to them, but it threatens to diminish the news legitimacy of their employer and depress their own ratings as the Fox News label becomes tarnished. The degree to which Fox fake-news programming (e.g. Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly,...

    Washington Post ^ | August 13, 2013 | Jennifer Rubin
    Politico tells us that Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), infamous for his bigoted comments on illegal aliens, is "hitting the trail" with his anti-immigrant screed. ("If you bring people from a violent civilization into a less-violent civilization, you're going to have more violence right? It's like pouring hot water into cold water, does it raise the temperature or not?") But the thing is that no one -- outside the Beltway -- takes him all that seriously. The photo accompanying Politico's report of an anti-immigration in Majority Leader Eric Cantor's Richmond, Va., district shows exactly 14 people. (Politico claims a grand total...

    President Barack Obama called the framework agreement Secretary of State John Kerry and other representatives of the P5+1 reached in Lausanne “historic.” Alas, as time passes and more is learned about the agreement and Iran’s understanding of it, the more it does seem to be “historic,” but for all the wrong reasons. -excerpt- Much of the work Iran conducted on military dimensions of a nuclear program occurred in Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps facilities and on their bases. Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan today said that the Lausanne Framework does not commit Iran to provide international inspectors access to such military...

    Algemeiner ^ | March 15, 2015 | Stephen M. Flatow
    JNS.org – In various cultures, a particular month, day or time is associated with a certain annual activity. For example, here in the United States, November—every other year—is election time. In Israel, every May brings the solemnity of remembering fallen soldiers, followed immediately by celebrations of national independence. And if it’s March and you happen to live in Palestinian Authority (PA)-controlled territory, then you know it’s time for publicly praising and honoring one of the most gruesome Palestinian massacres of Israelis and Americans in modern history. That’s because March 9, 1978, was the day that a squad of 13 Palestinian...

    Washington Post ^ | Jennifer Rubin
    Immigration reform won’t happen this year, but ironically the border debacle may make immigration reform more likely in the near to mid-future. Even if the House wanted to, there is little time (a couple weeks now and a few in September) to get any major legislation done. Moreover, with the monkey off their back and the Democrats under fire for the border mess, Republicans will see less urgency to move forward. (SNIP) It’s no longer politically untenable to argue we should first do border security, then evaluate and then address legalization issues. In fact that seems to be the default...
  • One-on-one with Rick Perry (part one)

    It seemed like one of those movies with twin brothers played by the same actor, one with glasses and one without. There is the brash, undisciplined one and the nerdy, engaging one. In my case it wasn’t a movie but a 45-minute interview with Texas Gov. Rick Perry. I was a tough critic of his performance in 2012, but so is he. He told me, “2011-12 was a frustrating, painful, humbling experience but not a bad one in the sense we sometimes learn the most when we are humbled.” He said one lesson is that you have to be physically...
