  • Trump Has Secret Emergency Powers?

    President Donald Trump has an expansive view of how much unchecked power the U.S. chief executive can wield. For example, in a speech back in July 2019, he asserted, "I have an Article II, where I have to the right to do whatever I want as president." The Article II to which Trump was referring is the section of the U.S. constitution that outlines the powers given to the president. Among other things, that article requires that the president "shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed." An ordinary language reading of that section does not prima facie suggest...

    Boris Becker has been slammed by tennis fans after “creepy” comments about a female chair umpire at the US Open. “I have to say, the umpire is extremely pretty,” Becker said, according to tennis journalist Petra Philippsen. “You eat with your eyes.” Needless to say fans were far from impressed by Becker’s comments, with many describing them as “creepy” and “disgusting”.
  • 'More information is coming': Atlantic editor-in-chief warns he will release more dirt on Trump - as Veteran Affairs secretary insists article that claims president called dead soldiers 'losers' is not true

    Veteran Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie has joined a long list of officials in blasting a recent report in the Atlantic that claimed Trump has repeatedly made disparaging remarks about the US war dead, calling them ‘suckers’ and ‘losers’. The rebuttals come as the article’s author, and the Atlantic's editor-in-chief, Jeffrey Goldberg, has defended his decision to keep his sources anonymous and says he expects 'more information' to come out in the coming days to corroborate his story about Trump’s remarks. These are not people who are anonymous to me,’ Goldberg told CNN. ‘We all have to use anonymous sources especially...

    Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly ready to call it quits on her show amid mounting pressure and a storm of negative publicity around toxic workplace allegations. According to the Daily Mail, the host, 62, has told executives at TelePictures and Warner Bros that she’s had enough and wants to walk away. “She feels she can’t go on and the only way to recover her personal brand from this is to shut down the show,” a source told the publication. “The truth is she knew what was going on, it’s her show. The buck stops with her. She can blame every executive...
  • Does Black Lives Matter Create a Hostile Work Environment?

    American Thinker ^ | 10 Jul, 2020 | Civis Americanus
    Black Lives Matter has created an environment in which you can destroy just about anybody by calling him a racist, and now we need to turn this environment against BLM. Could a good employment lawyer argue that an employer's or university's support for BLM constitutes an actionable hostile work environment or hostile learning environment? One of the qualifications for a hostile work environment (or hostile learning environment in a school or university) is simply that somebody has to feel offended, which is the "woke" Left's favorite method of attacking its enemies. The complainant must also show that it is discriminatory,...

    China is a ruthless meritocracy. Ten million high-school students take the gaokao (college entrance exam) each year, with math questions a lot tougher than our Graduate Record Examination. The average Chinese family spends the equivalent of a year’s income on tutoring. A third of Chinese undergraduates major in engineering, and China graduates six times as many STEM BAs as the U.S. each year–more than the U.S., Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Europe combined. A lot of their teachers hold doctorates from top U.S. universities, where we trained up a world-class faculty for Chinese universities (which now rank among the world’s...
  • Can Republicans Win the House in November 2020?

    House Republican leaders are expressing optimism about their chances to flip the House from Democrats to the GOP in November. Despite the challenges facing the party — challenges that almost all political pros from both parties agree are daunting — there may, indeed, be room for looking on the sunny side of the contest. Most political experts dismiss Republican chances of winning back the House. They point to the 41 seats that flipped in the 2018 midterms, a record number of Republican retirements, and a big cash advantage for Democratic incumbents.But a large number of those seats that flipped during...

    The traditional White House portrait unveiling may be skipped for the first time in decades amid bad blood between Trump and Obama. WASHINGTON — It’s been a White House tradition for decades: A first-term president hosts a ceremony in the East Room for the unveiling of the official portrait of his immediate predecessor that will hang in the halls of the White House for posterity. Republican presidents have done it for Democratic presidents, and vice versa — even when one of them ascended to the White House by defeating or sharply criticizing the other. “We may have our differences politically,”...

    On March 24, President Donald Trump said he wanted the country and the economy "opened up and just raring to go by Easter." Easter came and went. And Trump was mocked for being aspirational and unrealistic. Yet, with Ascension Thursday at hand, 40 days after Easter, the president seems to have been ahead of his time. The country, as a whole, is, and has been, opening up. Sunday's New York Times reports that, for weeks now, more than two-thirds of the states have been relaxing restrictions as Trump had urged. The reasons: weariness with the lockdown and sheltering in place,...
  • Is the Media Engaging in a Form of Psychological Warfare Against America?

    Townhall.com ^ | April 29, 2020 | Michael Brown
    A recent article written primarily by a medical doctor in Alabama claimed that, “The way in which the media has pushed fear nonstop amounts to psychological warfare against this country.” He added, “If it hasn’t occurred to you that we have heard one story and essentially one story alone for literally two months, well, that should have aroused suspicion.” Is this doctor correct? Or is the media doing its best to be responsible in the midst of an unprecedented crisis? I’m quite confident that nothing I write here will influence what the media is doing for two reasons. First, who...

  • vanity: SCOTUS question - can a chief justice be "demoted"?

    self | 1/19/20 | NewJerseyJoe
    In 2005, George W. Bush appointed John Roberts to SCOTUS and also designated him as the Chief Justice, replacing the recently deceased William Rehnquist in both roles. Question: either now, or when Trump replaces the next departed justice -- can Trump change who is the Chief Justice? Because the Constitution doesn't say anything about how a person is designated to be the chief, I'm wondering if Trump could say, at any time (this is an example): "I'm nominating Amy Barrett to replace Darth Bader Ginsburg, John Roberts will become an Associate Justice, and I appoint Clarence Thomas as Chief Justice."...

  • Can You Trust What Medical Journals Publish?

    American Thinker.com ^ | November 29, 2019 | John Dale Dunn
    I have repeatedly questioned the validity of medical journal claims in regards to politically charged issues like air pollution and climate change, as well as global warming here at AT. More recently, I showed how a major medical journal violates basic rules on scientific inquiry. There is another important problem with medical research as reported in medical journals and then often expanded by the lay press as big news: that medical journal articles are often proven wrong for unreliable results or promotion of treatments that are not beneficial or not any more efficacious than treatments they propose to replace. I...

    Written after the Robert A. Heinlin book of the same title and which I highly recommend. Yes had member Rick Wakeman on keyboards in his standard silver cape. He was on and off with Yes, but always a good performance. Jon Anderson was the lead singer and always talked about his wife Janie who he always travelled with, until she divorced him a few years ago. And Bass guitarist Chris Squire who died in 2015 and Geddie Lee from Rush played in his place for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Steve Howe has been a long-time guitarist...
