    President and CEO of 3M, Inge Thulin, announced Wednesday he is leaving President Donald Trump's Manufacturing Council. "I joined the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative in January to advocate for policies that align with our values and encourage even stronger investment and job growth — in order to make the United States stronger, healthier and more prosperous for all people. After careful consideration, I believe the initiative is no longer an effective vehicle for 3M to advance these goals. As a result, today I am resigning from the Manufacturing Advisory Council," Thulin said in a statement posted to 3M's Twitter account.

    The president of the AFL-CIO stepped down from a council advising the White House on Tuesday, hours after President Trump reiterated that both sides were to blame for deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va., where white supremacist groups rallied over the weekend. "President Trump’s remarks today repudiate his forced remarks yesterday about the KKK and neo-Nazis," AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said in a statement. He announced that both he and AFL-CIO leader Thea Lee would step down from Trump's Manufacturing Advisory Board. "We must resign on behalf of America’s working people, who reject all notions of legitimacy of these bigoted groups."...

"For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!" ....Shortly after Trump's tweet Tuesday, Scott Paul, president of the Alliance for American Manufacturing, also said he would drop out of the council. Paul, head of the group that aims to promote American manufacturing, said "it's the right thing for me to do."

    Krzanich is the third executive to leave President Donald Trump's council in the span of a day — Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank and Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier both resigned earlier on Monday following the recent episode of white supremacist violence in Virginia. "I resigned to call attention to the serious harm our divided political climate is causing to critical issues, including the serious need to address the decline of American manufacturing," Krzanich said in Monday's blog post. "I have already made clear my abhorrence at the recent hate-spawned violence in Charlottesville, and earlier today I called on all leaders...

    "I cannot process it," she said, choking back tears. Without much evidence, President Donald Trump has often referred to millions of people voting illegally in this country. Fitzpatrick now admits she did cast two ballots improperly — but she insists it was not intentional. Her story is one that stretches over three presidential administrations: those of Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. It's a story that sheds light on potential gaps in federal law, the limits of the judicial system and the agonizing consequences of what one woman calls a horrible mistake

    Anthony Scaramucci's wife, Deidre Ball, has filed for divorce from the White House's new communications director, according to a new report. "Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce," a source told Page Six. "She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits' end. She has left him even though they have two children together."

    Scarborough, who was a Republican congressman, took the opportunity to say that he's no longer a member of the GOP. "You have to ask yourself, what exactly is the Republican party willing to do? How far are they willing to go? How much of this country and our values are they willing to sell out?" he told Colbert. "I'm not going to be a Republican anymore. I've got to become an independent."

    NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC host and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough says he’s leaving the GOP. The “Morning Joe” co-host has become a sharp critic of President Donald Trump. Scarborough said Tuesday during an interview with CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert that “I’ve got to become an independent.” He appeared as a guest with his co-host and fiance, Mika Brzezinski, who recently was attacked in sharply personal terms by the president. Scarborough says it’s inexplicable why so many Republicans look the other way when Trump says or does something that betrays the party’s core values. He told Colbert...

    Chaffetz is checked out. With less than two weeks left before his early exit from Congress, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) trashed President Trump and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a no-holds-barred interview. Chaffetz — an ardent Obama critic who withdrew his Trump endorsement weeks before the 2016 election — said he thinks the new administration is already doing a worse job with transparency and helping congressional investigations. “The reality is, sadly, I don't see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration,” Chaffetz told the Sinclair Broadcast Group on Sunday. “I thought there would be this, these...

    With Trump reportedly set to leave the Paris Climate Deal, this has prompted one of Trump’s “advisors”, Elon Musk, to tweet moments ago that he has done “all he can” to advise “directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils” that the U.S. remain in the Paris climate deal. And, in response to a Twitter user asking him what he will do if Trump decides to leave the climate deal, Musk tweets “we will have no choice but to depart councils.”(snip)

    Apologies for re-posting, but Jack hit on an incredible discovery that even HE did not highlight in his piece: "Of the entire committee staff of ninety, only two junior members are registered Republican." This is massive, and I certainly didn't know this. How many Freepers did? That Republican Congressional Committees are all run by Democrats??? Never mind the fact that this committee---I'm guessing about 16-18 people---has NINETY staffers? So now you know why the "right" questions don't get asked. The Congressmen tell their staffers, "I have a hearing with Comey on Tuesday. Prepare a list of the questions I'll be...

    CAPE BRETON ISLAND, Canada —The first sign of what Rob Calabrese would come to think of as America’s unmooring began last year, just after Donald Trump won his first presidential primary and Calabrese published a $28 website that he’d designed in 30 minutes. “Hi Americans!” it began, and what followed was a sales pitch for an island where Muslims could “roam freely,” and where the only walls were those “holding up the roofs” of “extremely affordable houses.”
