    OPINION: BY JEFFREY A. FRIEDBERG PHOTO: C96977B2-35F7-44E4-98F3-9E44C5F235E9 MILLENNIALS Unloaded – "…It is a sobering reminder of how successful the propaganda of the leftist media and higher education system has been when one realizes that socialism is viewed by nearly half of the millions of young Americans as a sociable way of life — a better way of life where they feel people work together for the good of everyone, where the wealth generated by the sweat of the worker is not accumulated into the bank accounts of a small group of the mega-wealthy. The Democrat candidates for president continually...
  • House to Take Two-Week ‘Recess’ Vacation After Beginning ‘Impeachment Inquiry’

    The House of Representatives is set to take a two-week “recess” vacation after announcing its so-called “impeachment inquiry” against President Donald Trump in response to him having a routine conversation with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. “Congress is about to leave for a two-week recess,” said Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) on Thursday. The representative added that he believes Congress “should not do that” and should remain in Washington, DC, “to do the work to hold this president accountable.” “The stakes are so high,” said Khanna. “We have just announced an impeachment inquiry against the president.”

    Millennials struggle to make it past the crucial 90-day mark when starting a new job largely due to “own goals” such as lateness and absenteeism, a HR expert says. Greg Weiss, who specializes in developing “onboarding” programs to help improve retention rates, says businesses face a growing challenge with the new generation. According to Deloitte, millennials will make up 75 percent of the global workforce by 2025, but data shows this cohort have a much higher churn rate — and it’s costing money. In 2015, the Australian arm of global consulting firm PwC estimated staff turnover in the first 12...

    Minnesota police know a thing or two about snow, and they’d like you to know you should clean it off your car before you hit the road or it hits another vehicle. The Minnesota State Patrol tweeted a photo of a car that got pulled over recently for being almost entirely covered in snow, save for a small square of the windshield in front of the driver and the driver’s door window. “Don’t be this person when it snows. Please. Please. Please. A trooper stopped this car Feb. 14 in Elk River. Yes, they were cited. Sure, maybe the snow...
  • 'Survival of the laziest' is key to avoiding extinction

    When your mother told you to clean your room and you said you'd do it later, it turns out you were just trying to survive. A new study from researchers at the University of Kansas suggests that species who use more energy on a daily basis are at a greater risk of becoming extinct than those that are more sedentary. “We wondered, 'Could you look at the probability of extinction of a species based on energy uptake by an organism?'” said Luke Strotz, postdoctoral researcher at KU’s Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum and the study's lead author, in a...

    Decades of climate research has established that the Earth is warming and that humans are a significant factor. Largely due to humans adding greenhouses gases to the atmosphere -- through burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and many other agricultural, industrial and human activities -- the rise in temperatures over the past century has been unprecedented. According to researchers at NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 2016 was the warmest year in documented history. In fact, 16 of the 17 warmest years on record have occurred since 2001. By 2050, annual average temperatures are expected to rise in...

    President Donald Trump continued to needle Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for failing to pass an Obamacare repeal. “Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “You can do it!” Earlier on Thursday, Trump challenged McConnell for failing to pass an Obamacare repeal. “Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!” Yesterday, Trump challenged McConnell on Twitter after...

    Former House speaker John A. Boehner, who has mostly avoided public commentary since leaving Congress two years ago, told a business gathering last week that Republicans are "not going to repeal and replace Obamacare" because "the American people have gotten accustomed to it."

Now, they’re never — they're not going to repeal and replace Obamacare," Boehner told a private crowd in Las Vegas, according to video footage obtained by The Washington Post.

    The French election, of unprecedented interest, hazard and potential for violence, has been largely about who is to blame. Blame for what, exactly? For the country’s chronic malaise. But is it the fault of the bankers, the bosses, the bureaucracy, or the immigrants? Quite often the British press gives the impression that France is in some kind of deplorable condition that we must at all costs avoid, a hybrid, perhaps, of economic Guinea-Bissau and ideological North Korea. In part, this is because the French themselves so strongly lament the state of their country; I have a whole shelf of books...

    As soon as he awakes, Brian Porrell checks his e-mail, sometimes firing off a message before he gets out of bed. He makes calls during his commute to the Waltham staffing firm WinterWyman, spends 10 to 12 hours at the office and out visiting clients, and keeps his phone by his side at night, checking work e-mails while he watches sports on TV. Like many workers today, Porrell, 30, is on the job wherever he is — and he doesn’t count out-of-office exchanges in his 50-plus hour week. The millennial generation, the first to grow up with smartphones in their...

    Poor Michelle Obama, the highly praised and highly partisan First Lady, complained to Oprah Winfrey in a recent interview that she has lost hope. Mrs. Obama said that her husband did deliver on his promises of offering hope to the American people, but that now “we are feeling what not having hope feels like.” Of course, Mrs. Obama is hopeless these days because Donald Trump will become our nation’s 45th President and demolish the odious Obama legacy. The First Lady and her husband joined the entire leadership of the Democrat Party to vigorously campaign for Hillary Clinton to become our next...

    U.S. EPA employees were in tears. Worried Energy Department staffers were offered counseling. Some federal employees were so depressed, they took time off. Others might retire early. And some employees are in downright panic mode in the aftermath of Donald Trump's victory. "People are upset. Some people took the day off because they were depressed," said John O'Grady, president of American Federation of Government Employees Council 238, a union that represents thousands of EPA employees. After Election Day, "people were crying," added O'Grady, who works in EPA's Region 5 office in Chicago. "They were recommending that people take sick leave...

    FBI Director James Comey said he’s not going to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, telling Congress on Wednesday that none of the recent revelations since he closed the case in July “would come near” to that trigger point. . . Mr. Comey also said he couldn’t remember another instance where the subject of an investigation — Mrs. Clinton’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, sat in on the FBI’s interview with another subject, in this case Mrs. Clinton. But he also said that the FBI had no power to exclude someone from the interview, and he defended his...
