Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at a Clinton Foundation event on Saturday where she complained about people spreading misinformation about her as she delivered some misinformation of her own. The event, which commemorated the 25th anniversary of Bill’s victory in the 1992 presidential election, featured both Clintons and their former campaign manager, James Carville.(Snip) “There was nothing fast and easy about it,” Hillary said. “He didn’t Tweet about it, he got to work about it and he actually got it done.”Bill Clinton served as president of the United States from 1993 to 2001.

Who is LaToya Cantrell? The backstory
of New Orleans´ mayor-elect
Times-Picayune [New Orleans, LA], by Staff    Original Article

New Orleans mayors have typically come from families with political pedigree. They have well established ties to the civic and business community. The great majority have claimed native roots. LaToya Cantrell, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer on the public scene. She is the first outsider elected to the office since Chicago-born Victor Schiro in 1961. Before her election as the District B representative in 2012, Cantrell’s community visibility was limited to Broadmoor, where she led a nonprofit that expedited the neighborhood’s recovery after Hurricane Katrina. Still, the 45-year-old mayor-elect can rightfully claim Crescent City bona fides. She has been

Washington - President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail. (Snip) Says Trump: "Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!" Trump later tweeted: "Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!"

A pair of best friends are believed to be the youngest black Republicans ever to hold elected office in left-leaning Connecticut. Ed Ford Jr. and Tyrell Brown, both 20, are juniors in college and plan to juggle school and public service in their hometown of Middletown, Connecticut. Ford was elected to the school board, and Brown won a spot on the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission. "We wanted to get in touch with the people" and "empathize with them," Ford told "Fox & Friends" on Sunday. "They trusted us. They wanted to entrust us with the lives of their children and with the city really."

Top-ranking members of the Trump administration gathered at the Federalist Society’s national convention over the weekend to share their progress rolling back the administrative state.

(Video) - Saudi Arabia ramped up its campaign against Iran´s growing influence in the Arab World Sunday by persuading most of the 22 member states of the Arab League to condemn Iran´s Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, as a "terrorist organization." (Snip) Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari also did not attend the meeting. Iran, along with the US-led international coalition, has been a major supporter of Baghdad in its war against ISIS. "We want to hold everyone responsible," Bahraini Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al-Khalifa said during the deliberations. "We want to hold countries where Hezbollah is a partner in government

CONCORD - Even as it pours thousands of dollars into the fight, one of the most prominent foes of the Northern Pass hydroelectric project hides its identity and source of funds behind a Delaware-formed 501(C)(4) company. Donald Kreis, head of New Hampshire´s Office of the Consumer Advocate, says Protect the Granite State (PTGS) is within its rights to protect the identity of its donors. But Kreis said the source of all funding in the Northern Pass debate should matter to consumers and it is thus "justifiable to draw the most skeptical inference that you can about where money like that

President Trump says he thinks Sen. Jeff Flake won’t support the Republican tax overhaul in Congress, issuing an insulting tweet against the Arizona Republican two days after Flake criticized the president. Flake was caught on an open microphone Friday saying the GOP is “toast” if the party follows Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. It was not a surprising sentiment given Flake’s previous criticism of Trump. In a Sunday night tweet, Trump fired back: “Sen. Jeff Flake(y), who is unelectable in the Great State of Arizona (quit race, anemic polls) was caught (purposely) on “mike” saying bad things about your favorite

Zimbabwe´s President Robert Mugabe has shocked expectations that he would resign by pledging to remain on as leader of his ZANU-PF party in an address to the nation. That despite the party removing him as leader earlier in the day. The party’s Central Committee had given the 93-year old less than 24 hours to vacate his office or face impeachment. The move was an attempt to draw his lengthy reign to a close following a de facto coup. However when he addressed the nation on Sunday, Mugabe made no mention of resigning. In a long speech Mugabe vowed to preside over

The accusation by Beverly Young Nelson that Judge Roy Moore tried to force her into oral sex in 1977/78 is supposedly substantiated by a notation that Nelson said Moore wrote (uninvited) in her yearbook in late 1977. See the picture below. (This is not a very high-resolution picture, but we´ll have to work with what we´ve got.) [Photo] The inscription has been reported by the press to read: "To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say ´Merry Christmas´ Christmas 1977 Love, Roy Moore D.A. 12-22-77 Olde Hickory House".

A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken, a Democrat from Minnesota, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that ´no´ the embattled senator would not resign. ´He is spending time with his family in Washington, D.C., and will be through the Thanksgiving holiday,´ the aide told the newspaper. ´And he´s doing a lot of reflecting.´ On Thursday, Franken became the latest high-profile man whose career is now in jeopardy over bad behavior with a woman. Radio host Leeann Tweeden said in 2006, when performing alongside Franken at a traveling USO tour, the then-comedian grabbed her breasts without her permission when Tweeden was sleeping and kissed

Zimbabwe’s hideous 93-year-old dictator, Robert Mugabe, was given until noon Monday by his former security chief to pack his bags or leave the Ceaucescu way. If Mugabe refused to go, “We will bring back the crowds and they will do their business,” Mutsvangwa told reporters. Reuters continued: [Emmerson] Mnangagwa, a former state security chief known as “The Crocodile,” is expected to head an interim post-Mugabe unity government that will focus on rebuilding ties with the outside world and stabilising an economy in freefall.

The Washington Post published a column Friday morning by feminist Kate Harding. The column criticizes Sen. Al Franken over the recent revelations of Leeann Tweeden detailing Franken’s lewd and harassing behavior during a USO tour in 2006. Harding’s take can fairly be summed up as: “Sure, Franken’s a pig, but he votes to keep abortion legal so he shouldn’t resign.” Harding is described in her byline by the Washington Post as “co-editor of “Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America,” co-host of the podcast Feminasty, and author of “Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture—And What

BRENT, Ala. — Embattled Senate candidate Roy Moore is pinning his hopes for victory on Alabama’s long-held tradition of sharp defiance to perceived threats from forces outside the state. That rebellious spirit, which dates to long before the state’s segregationist Gov.?George Wallace became a national figure in the 1960s by railing against the “central government” in Washington, has been apparent in recent days as top state GOP officials have closed ranks around Moore amid a stream of allegations of sexual misconduct against the Republican and calls by national party leaders for him to step aside. Moore’s campaign has taken to repeating Alabama’s

BONN, Germany — As the first glimmer of dawn appeared across the Rhine River, delegates stumbled out of an all-night negotiating session at this year’s global climate talks, expressing satisfaction Saturday at the progress made toward creating a comprehensive rule book for fighting global warming. The two-week meeting in Bonn, Germany, was billed as a "blue-collar" event designed to hammer out the technical details of the 2015 Paris climate accord. But fears had loomed beforehand that the administration of President Donald Trump, who rejects the Paris agreement, would seek to block any advances seen as counter to American interests. In the end,

The father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested on suspicion of shoplifting while on tour in China isn´t praising President Donald Trump for his involvement in their release. When asked by ESPN what role the president played in brokering his son´s freedom, LaVar Ball — a former basketball player himself and star on the Facebook reality series "Ball in the Family" — responded with his own questions. "Who? What was he over there for? Don´t tell me nothing," Ball said. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Ball in EPSN´s report on Saturday also downplayed

The suspect in the shooting was identified as Rahmael Sal Holt, 29, and said he is expected to be "armed and dangerous." They released an image of Holt on Twitter. Earlier in the day Saturday, police announced they had found a vehicle they believe was involved in the killing of a Pennsylvania cop during a traffic stop, officials said.

The Houston economy rebounded strongly last month after losing thousands of jobs in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, aided by the oil industry recovery and strong state and national economic growth. The metropolitan area added more than 27,000 jobs in October, more than making up for the 20,000 lost in September after devastating floods shut and in some cases destroyed thousands of businesses across the region, according to data from the U.S. Labor Department. Even employment sectors hardest hit by natural disasters experienced substantial job gains. Local bars and restaurants, for example, added about 8,000 jobs from October 2016, a

An FBI report on the rise of black "extremists" is stirring fears of a return to practices used during the civil rights movement, when the bureau spied on activist groups without evidence they had broken any laws. The FBI said it doesn´t target specific groups, and the report is one of many its intelligence analysts produce to make law enforcement aware of what they see as emerging trends. A similar bulletin on white supremacists, for example, came out about the same time. (Snip) Before the Trump administration, the report might not have caused such alarm. The FBI noted it issued

A letter newly released from the FBI´s archives may prove that DB Cooper - the 1971 hijacker last seen leaping out of a plane with a fortune in cash - survived his apparent death. The letter, which was sent 17 days after the hijacking appears to contain information that was not released into the public domain until 13 years later. If that´s the case it might reveal not only that Cooper lived to tell the tale of his extraordinary heist, but that the FBI covered it up to hide their embarrassment at his escape, the leader of a team of

Will Democrats give Al Franken a pass to preserve the double standard that is otherwise applied in their favor or cut him loose in search of bigger game? At the moment it is not clear. They are not of one mind. Hillary Clinton herself has spoken up on Franken’s behalf: “Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither. [That] is the kind of accountability I’m talking about.” Thus spoke the author of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy concoction to defend Bill Clinton in the matter of Monica Lewinksy. Bill
