    Pelosi took a more pragmatic way of saying it, suggesting that they will wait until the end of the Mueller investigation. The far left base isn’t that patient. And the rabid anti-Trumpers in the Democratic Party want impeachment now. They need revenge for losing the 2016 election. Last night, freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan said at a MoveOn reception that “they’re gonna impeach the mother******.” The only question is when.

    A damning report by the Health and Disabilities Commissioner has recommended an audit of the services provided by the country's top abortion clinic. It comes after a woman complained she had a long-term contraceptive device inserted in her uterus without her consent at the time of an abortion in 2010. The woman, whose identity is protected, only discovered the intrauterine contraceptive device after going for medical tests when she tried repeatedly and was unable to fall pregnant three years later. Investigation by the Health and Disability Commissioner has found a doctor at the Epsom Day Clinic mistakenly inserted the contraceptive...

    OSLO (Reuters) - Part of East Antarctica is more vulnerable than expected to a thaw that could trigger an unstoppable slide of ice into the ocean and raise world sea levels for thousands of years, a study showed on Sunday. The Wilkes Basin in East Antarctica, stretching more than 1,000 km (600 miles) inland, has enough ice to raise sea levels by 3 to 4 meters (10-13 feet) if it were to melt as an effect of global warming, the report said. The Wilkes is vulnerable because it is held in place by a small rim of ice, resting on...

    The Obama administration cut a major planned benefit from the 2010 health-care law on Friday, announcing that a program to offer Americans insurance for long-term care was simply unworkable. Although the program had been dogged from the start by doubts about its feasibility, its elimination marks the first time the administration has backed away from a key piece of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement. Republican critics of the law immediately said the decision proved that the legislation is unsound and unsustainable. Every major GOP presidential candidate has pledged to work to repeal it.

    Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke on Tuesday warned current high levels of unemployment could become entrenched and have a "very long-term effect" on the US economy. Describing job creation as "probably the most important economic issue facing America today," Bernanke cautioned on the risks of long-term unemployment during a debate in Ohio. With nearly 40 percent of the US workforce unemployed for more than six months, fears are growing that that high jobless rates may be more than a temporary result of a brutal recession. "This is very unusual and very worrisome," Bernanke said, warning that workers could become detached...
  • For many unemployed workers, jobs aren't coming back ( grim prospect long term unemployed)

    The U.S. economy will eventually rebound from the Great Recession. Millions of American workers will not. What some economists now project — and policymakers are loath to admit — is that the U.S. unemployment rate, which stood at 9.6% in August, could remain elevated for years to come. The nation's job deficit is so deep that even a powerful recovery would leave large numbers of Americans out of work for years, experts say. And with growth now weakening, analysts are doubtful that companies will boost payrolls significantly any time soon. Unemployment, long considered a temporary, transitional condition in the United...

    WASHINGTON, May 11, 2010 – Senior U.S. and Afghan officials today agreed to explore ways to broaden and deepen defense cooperation between the two countries and establish a long-term partnership for the future, Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell said. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates today hosted Afghan Defense Minister Abdul Rahim Wardak, Interior Minister Mohammad Hanif Atmar and Afghan Intelligence Chief Amrullah Saleh during a 90-minute Pentagon meeting. The meeting is part of a series of discussions between U.S. and Afghan officials built around Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s visit here. “This is a very important week for our partnership, for...

    KABUL (AFP) – President Hamid Karzai told visiting US Defence Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday that Afghanistan would need aid to fund its security forces for up to 20 more years, calling for a long-term US commitment. The newly re-elected Karzai said his government would work to assume responsibility for Afghanistan's security within five years, but that the impoverished country lacked the funds to foot the entire bill. Gates, who held talks with Karzai on implementing a new war strategy that involves sending 30,000 extra US troops to fight the Taliban, reiterated that the United States intended to start withdrawing...

    WASHINGTON – House health care legislation expected within days is likely to include a new long-term care insurance program to help seniors and disabled people stay out of nursing homes, senior Democrats say. The voluntary program would begin to close a gap in the social safety net overlooked in the broader health care debate, but it must overcome objections from insurance companies that sell long-term care coverage and from fiscal conservatives.

    WASHINGTON -- Moving to broaden the scope of the health care overhaul, President Barack Obama threw his support Tuesday behind creation of a program to help families struggling with burdensome costs of long-term care. The voluntary insurance program - sponsored by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass. - would pay a modest daily cash benefit of at least $50 that people could use for a range of in-home services or nursing home expenses.

    President Bush can't make major, long-term economic and military commitments to Iraq without consulting Congress first, according to a resolution introduced Thursday by several legislative authors, including two Bay Area House members. The resolution isn't binding, acknowledged Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, who crafted it along with Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-Petaluma, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Los Angeles, and Rep. Bob Filner, D-San Diego, to put on record congressional opposition to such far-reaching pacts. "Consistently I have seen this administration ... really erode our checks and balances, erode our democracy," Lee told reporters Thursday. "This resolution is long overdue and we've got to...
  • Long-Term Security in Iraq Depends on Economic Conditions, Official Says

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 10, 2007 – Getting Iraqis back to work is critical to Iraq’s future as a stable, secure and prosperous country that can stand up to terrorists, the Defense Department official overseeing that effort said today. Iraq’s long-term security depends on a strong economic climate, Paul Brinkley, deputy undersecretary for business transformation, told online journalists and “bloggers” during a conference call from Baghdad. More than 50 percent of the Iraqi population is out of work or underemployed, a statistic Brinkley said would create unrest anywhere, including the United States. “Terrorist networks are preying on this economic distress” in Iraq,...

    WASHINGTON - Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Thursday rejected the Bush administration's vision of a Korea-type, decades-long U.S. troop presence in Iraq and suggested a need for benchmarks to gauge progress. "Our objective would not be a Korea-type setting with 25-50,000 troops on a near permanent basis remaining in bases in Iraq," the former Massachusetts governor told the Associated Press. "I think we would hope to turn Iraq security over to their own military and their own security forces, and if presence in the region is important for us than we have other options that are nearby," Romney said....
  • US looking to long-term presence in Iraq

    US Defence Secretary Robert Gates says the United States is looking to a long-term military presence in Iraq under a mutually agreed arrangement similar to that it has long had with South Korea. Gates said plans still called for an assessment of the US "surge" strategy in September but he was looking beyond that to the type of military presence the United States will have in Iraq over the long term. "The idea is more a model of a mutually agreed arrangement whereby we have a long and enduring presence but under the consent of both parties and under certain...

    BAGHDAD — The United States Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates held a joint press conference with the Iraqi Minister of Defense Abdul Qadir al-Ubaidi about the military situation in Iraq at the Ministry of Defense building Friday. During the press conference, Secretary Gates stated that Iraq is an important ally and vital partner in the global war on terror, and Fardh Al-Qanoon. This commitment will be long term, said Gates. “It is a commitment to work with the Iraqis to ensure their sovereignty, train their legitimate security forces and provide support for security reform and modernization,” said Gates.

    Rejecting calls to spread out a looming jump in premiums, a state pension board panel on Tuesday endorsed an average 33.6 percent increase in long-term care insurance rates for 170,000 government workers and retirees in California. The boost would help the giant California Public Employees' Retirement System establish a reserve and generate additional capital to cover a projected $600 million deficit over the next five to six decades. If adopted today by the full CalPERS board, the move would be the second increase since 2003, when trustees boosted rates an average of 17 percent. "We're better off to get it...
