  • Fearing Loss of U.S. Money Under Trump, New York Begins Urgent Review

    NYT's ^ | 12/2/16 | WILLIAM NEUMAN
    Officials are conducting an urgent review of the billions of dollars that New York City receives each year from the federal government to identify the streams of money that may be most at risk once President-elect Donald J. Trump takes office. Mr. Trump, a Republican, has threatened to punish cities that defy his efforts to deport undocumented immigrants, and there is also concern that the Republican-controlled Congress may seek to slash longstanding aid programs. “There’s urgency because the threat seems greater than it’s been,” said Tony Shorris, the first deputy mayor, referring to the effort to identify which programs may...
  • White House, Pentagon back requiring women to register for military draft

    Fox news ^ | Dec 1, 2016
    WASHINGTON – The Obama administration declared its support Thursday for requiring women to register for the military draft, a symbolic but significant shift that reflects the U.S. military's evolution from a male-dominated force to one seeking to incorporate women at all levels. President Barack Obama has been considering whether to adopt the position since last December, when Defense Secretary Ash Carter ordered the military to open all jobs to women, including the most arduous combat posts. Ned Price, a spokesman for the White House's National Security Council, said Obama believes women have "proven their mettle," including in Afghanistan and Iraq....

    Congress has overridden President Obama’s objection to Congress’ annual defense bill, giving the troops a 2.1% pay raise and a boost in manpower. Released on Tuesday, the bill also includes a massive overhaul of the military healthcare system but spares military personnel the dreaded cuts in housing allowance that were the subject of much debate earlier in the year. At $3.2 billion more than President Obama’s target cost, the NDAA is set to total nearly $619 billion. President Obama has said that he won’t accept increases in defense spending without corresponding increases in non-military programs, risking a snubbing of a...

    China lodged a diplomatic protest on Saturday after President-elect Donald Trump spoke by phone with President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan, but blamed the self-ruled island Beijing claims as its own for the "petty" move. The 10-minute telephone call with Taiwan's leadership was the first by a U.S. president-elect or president since President Jimmy Carter switched diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China in 1979, acknowledging Taiwan as part of "one China". China's Foreign Ministry said it had lodged "stern representations" with what it called the "relevant U.S. side", urging the careful handling of the Taiwan issue to avoid any unnecessary disturbances...

    Donald Trump looked to have sparked a potentially damaging diplomatic row with China on Friday after speaking to Taiwanese president Tsai Ing-wen on the telephone in a move experts said would anger Beijing. The call, first reported by the Taipei Times and confirmed by the Financial Times, is thought to be the first between the leader of the island and a US president or president-elect since ties between America and Taiwan were severed in 1979, at Beijing’s behest. The US closed its embassy in Taiwan – a democratically ruled island which Beijing considers a breakaway province – in the late...

Schultz will become the company's executive chairman, and current President and COO Kevin Johnson will become Starbucks' next CEO. The changes will take place on April 3, the company said.

  • Trump already winning — and he’s not even president yet

    Donald Trump has come a long way from the “disarray” and “chaos” the media claimed to spy before his transition even got started. Such a long way that it’s fair to say that Trump is having just about the best 24 hours a president-elect could have. Two A-plus moves — the deal with Carrier to keep 1,000 jobs in Indiana instead of moving them to Mexico, and getting crime-busting US Attorney Preet Bharara to stay on — keep faith with the populist themes of Trump’s campaign. He pledged to stand up for workers and stop manufacturing jobs from leaving America....

    Steel stocks have surged since Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential contest on promises to put America first and make massive investments in the nation’s infrastructure. And no steel producer has benefited more than U.S. Steel. Its shares have jumped 54 percent since Nov. 8, closing Wednesday at $32.34, up $1.18. However, analysts say there are plenty of steel producers who stand to benefit more than U.S. Steel if the Trump administration pushes through a massive infrastructure program...

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it plans to withdraw a rule that would require seven Texas coal-fired power plants to reduce pollution coming from their stacks, providing at least a short-term reprieve for power companies fearful that the costs of ever stricter regulations would doom their plants. The rule would have mandated that the Texas plants, as well as eight others in Oklahoma, update scrubbers and other air pollution control devices to preserve air quality near national parks and wilderness areas, including Big Bend National Park on the Texas border with Mexico, and Guadalupe Mountains National Park on the...

    From the earliest days of his campaign, Donald J. Trump made keeping manufacturing jobs in the United States his signature economic issue, and the decision by Carrier, the big air-conditioner company, to move 2,000 of them from Indiana to Mexico was a tailor-made talking point for him on the stump. On Thursday, Mr. Trump and Mike Pence, Indiana’s governor and the vice-president elect, plan to appear at Carrier’s Indianapolis plant to announce they’ve struck a deal with the company to keep a majority of the jobs in the state, according to officials with the transition team as well as Carrier....

    The White House’s top immigration staffer said President Obama won’t pardon illegal immigrants before the end of his term, dashing hopes of activists who had pleaded for Mr. Obama to use his powers to shield hundreds of thousands of Dreamers from deportation. White House Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Munoz, in a podcast interview with the Center for Migration Studies, said they’ve concluded a pardon wouldn’t apply to immigration cases — and wouldn’t be a permanent solution anyway.

In an Oct. 21 blog post, Mark Jamison, who on Monday was named one of two members of Trump's tech policy transition team, laid out his ideal vision for the government's role in telecommunications, concluding there is little need for the agency to exist. "Most of the original motivations for having an FCC have gone away," Jamison wrote. "Telecommunications network providers...

Well, one man whose name has just been floated as a possible pick for Department of Education is none other than Larry Arnn, president of the conservative Hillsdale College. Hillsdale College, as most of you know, accepts no federal money, and therefore is the antithesis to everything liberals believe, so Arnn’s potential role in the Trump administration...

And the denunciations that have rolled in so far are coming from all sides of the party — from those who support Trump to those who have long opposed him to those close to him who are offering platitudes about how what he said was wrong, but that he's still better than Hillary Clinton. Below, the five emerging categories of Trump critic:

    GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence will no longer attend a campaign event on Saturday with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), according to reports. Ryan was originally scheduled to appear with Donald Trump, but Trump was dropped from the event in the wake of the Washington Post publishing leaked audio of Trump making vulgar comments about women in 2005. Pence was supposed to attend in his running mate’s place. But the Indiana governor is "not going to the Wisconsin GOP event today,” according to NBC News. Pence decided himself not to attend the event and was not uninvited by Ryan,...

    ...'They admitted they were guilty' Donald Trump continues to hammer away at the Central Park Five even though they have long been exonerated for the rape of a jogger in 1989. The Republican presidential candidate told CNN in a statement this week that "they admitted they were guilty. The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same." The five teens spent several years in jail, but the charges were dropped in 2002 after...

    SEATTLE (KOMO) - Washington State Republican chairman Susan Hutchison is defending Donald Trump after the Washington Post released a new video on Friday, in which the GOP nominee is caught having a lewd conversation about women in 2005. In an interview with KOMO News Radio on Friday evening, Hutchinson said the comments made 11 years ago were, "repulsive to her" and others, then blamed former President Bill Clinton and the Democratic party. "He [Trump] was a Democrat at the time and he was channeling Bill Clinton," said Hutchinson. "The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton to say, 'this man does not belong...

    SALT LAKE CITY -- Congressman Jason Chaffetz said he is withdrawing his support for Donald Trump Friday after a video surfaced showing the Republican candidate for president making vulgar remarks in 2005 about touching and kissing women without their consent. Chaffetz, a Republican representing Utah's Third Congressional District, appeared on Fox 13 News at Nine Friday, saying: "I'm out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine." Rep. Chaffetz said he and his wife have a 15-year-old daughter, and he said...

    On Friday night Trump released a video response. He’s going after Hillary Clinton. “I’ve never pretended to be a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone I’m not. I’ve said and done things I regret. And the words released today on this more than decade old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it. I was wrong. And I apologize… I pledge to be a better man tomorrow and I will never ever let you down… We are losing our jobs. We are less safe than we were...
