    UPDATE: The layoffs at ESPN might turn out worse than predicted, sources tell Sporting News. The Worldwide Leader in Sports could cut around 70 TV/radio anchors, reporters, analysts and online writers over coming days and weeks, sources said. That would be worse than the 40 to 50 on-air talents predicted by ESPN book author James Andrew Miller during a podcast with Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated. The higher numbers may reflect the inclusion of online writers like respected Titans beat reporter Paul Kuharsky who tweeted Monday his contract is not being renewed. "This could be a bloodbath," warned one source....
  • Neil Gorsuch and the State’s Power to Kill (BARF)

    It’s not entirely fair to judge a Supreme Court justice based on his first vote. Urgent matters arise unexpectedly, and the court must sometimes act quickly. Still, it’s worth paying special attention to Justice Neil Gorsuch’s vote late Thursday night to deny a stay of execution for Ledell Lee, an Arkansas man who was sentenced to death in 1995 for murdering a woman named Debra Reese with a tire thumper. After Justice Gorsuch, along with the four other conservative justices, denied his final appeal without explanation, Mr. Lee, who maintained his innocence until the end, was executed by lethal injection....

    Defense bonds or War Bonds as they have become known after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor -- These bonds, or debt securities were used for the purpose of financing military operations during war time, the bonds yielded a mere 2.9 percent return after a 10-year maturity -- These bonds are not going to fund a retirement, but they will help fund operations current and future engagements. I think this is a great way for President Trump to continue to use the media to get the message out, perfect opportunities would be Memorial Day rally's, 4th of July, and Veterans...

    Tech giant Google donated $285,000 to President Trump's inauguration despite the fact that Eric Schmidt, the chief executive of Google's parent company Alphabet, worked directly with Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, FEC filings reveal. Google, which enjoyed direct access to President Barack Obama's administration and attended more than 400 White House meetings along with its affiliates, was forced to pivot following Donald Trump's November victory.

    New applications for unemployment insurance rose to 244,00 in the second week of April, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, up from an ultra-low 234,000 the week before. Investors had expected jobless claims to rebound to around 242,000 after falling to the second-lowest level since 1973 in the previous week. Thanks in part to new claims running low for so long, the total number of people receiving benefits of all durations fell to the lowest level in 17 years. Just 1.98 million people received benefits in the first week of April, according to Thursday's report, the lowest such number since...
  • JAW-DROPPING: Coal's Colossal Comeback (35,000 jobs added since October)

    Buried in an otherwise-humdrum jobs report was the jaw-dropping pronouncement by the Department of Labor that mining jobs in America were up by 11,000 in March. Since the low point in October 2016, and following years of painful layoffs in the mining industry, the mining sector has added 35,000 jobs. What a turnaround. Liberals have been saying that Donald Trump was lying to the American people when he said that he could bring coal jobs back. Well, so far, he has delivered on his promise. There's more good news for the coal industry. Earlier this month, Peabody Energy — America's...

    The White House proposed a $5.7 billion budget for EPA in fiscal 2018. That’s a 31 percent cut from 2017 numbers. A 31 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget would force it to eliminate at least 50 individual programs and nearly 4,000 full-time equivalents in 2018, according to internal EPA documents that describe funding levels and policy decisions that support the President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget request.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is planning to sign an executive order that seeks to make changes to a visa program that brings in high-skilled workers. Trump is heading Tuesday to Kenosha, Wisconsin, where he plans to sign an order dubbed "Buy American, Hire American," said administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity despite the president's frequent criticism of the use of anonymous sources. The officials said the order, which Trump will sign at the headquarters of tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc., would direct the departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Labor and State to propose new rules to...
  • Trump To Sign ‘Buy American, Hire American’ Executive Orders (H1B Visas Finally Targeted)

    President Donald Trump will sign an executive order in Wisconsin on Tuesday directing a government-wide review aimed at putting new teeth back into decades-old “Buy American” and “Hire American” directives. The 220-day review process, which could lead to additional executive orders and possibly legislation, will focus on preventing foreign workers with H-1B visas from, as one senior administration official put it, “undercutting American labor at less cost,” which the official labeled as “an abuse” of the current system. “This is a clear statement from the president of the United States to shore up some of these abuses,” the official continued....

    Maybe itÂ’s because the complexity is difficult to distill; maybe itÂ’s because some just canÂ’t give President Trump any credit; or maybe itÂ’s because the scope is too challenging to comprehend against the constant belittlement meme du jour; regardless of reason, President Trump is fundamentally realigning international geo-political alliances and almost no-one is connecting the dots. President Trump obviously held a long-ball strategy with the Chinese; heÂ’s described the approach in his books and lived the approach in his business life: At the outset, position yourself at the furthest oppositional point when it costs you nothing; then leverage inward toward...

    On the campaign trail, President Donald Trump promised to roll back federal regulations. And at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February, chief strategist Steve Bannon said that the goal of the administration was the “deconstruction of the administrative state.” Trump has delivered on those pledges, signing over a dozen laws reversing Obama-era regulations, marking the most substantial legislative achievement of his first 100 days in office. Politico has downplayed Trump’s slew of repeal laws, describing them as “the only substantive bills Trump has signed so far.” And, in keeping with a media-wide effort to separate Trump from his...

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt told dozens of Pennsylvania coal miners Thursday that the “regulatory assault” on their industry is over, and that the environment can be protected without hurting business. “We’re going to do it the American way, grow jobs and show the rest of the world how it’s done,” Pruitt said before going on a mine tour about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. “The regulatory assault is over,” he said, referring to tightened environmental and other regulatory standards on coal and other energy industries under former President Barack Obama. “We’re going to partner together with you.” Pruitt...
  • Trump signs bill targeting funding for abortion providers (defunded PP)

    Trump signs bill targeting funding for abortion providers © Getty President Trump on Thursday signed a bill to nix an Obama-era rule that blocked states from defunding healthcare providers for political reasons. The bill, which Democrats say is really an effort to defund Planned Parenthood, passed the Senate last month after Vice President Pence had to cast a tie-breaking vote. Trump signed the measure behind closed doors in the Oval Office without media present. Republicans used the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to roll back the regulation, which former President Obama signed during his final months in office. Obama's rule required...

    Veterans will now have the opportunity to check wait times at the 1,700 Veterans Affairs facilities across the country. ... The new website is a must for the VA. The unforgivably long wait times at too many VA centers has plagued the agency and placed veterans in danger. At a Phoenix facility, veterans had to wait for care an average of 115 days. The VA is also taking concrete steps of draining the swamp of bad employees. Under current law, some clinics' hands are tied over VA employees who engage in nefarious behavior. For instance, an employee in Houston who...

    Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said during a joint press conference at the White House. Stoltenberg reminded Trump and the public that NATO allies have contributed to the defense of the Untied States, emphasizing that about 1,000 members of allied militaries have died fighting in Afghanistan. But he paired that conventional defense of NATO with a clear olive branch to Trump, who rattled international leaders during the 2016 presidential election by threatening to abandon allies who fail to contribute to the common defense. Such rhetoric has produced a $10 billion increase in defense spending. "We are . . . seeing the effect...

Some believe that the Democratic national party abandoned the race, while others argue that if the national party got involved, it would have hurt Thompson.
