First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

A Fresno State professor who called the late Barbara Bush “racist” soon after her death Tuesday, and said she was glad “the witch is dead,” continues to face fallout as donors mull ceasing donations to the institution.

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

The remarkable image was captured by Mark Fitz, a travel photographer who was on Lady Elliot Island, on the Great Barrier Reef. The angry turtle is seen putting up his middle finger - commonly known as the rude finger - as he swam among the coral reefs.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper must believe that attacking Fox News host Sean Hannity is a sure-fire ratings bonanza, as he was at it again on Thursday when he slammed his rival for taking part in what Cooper described as “a coordinated smear campaign” against Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey. “When you’re not interested in facts you can blame folks for anything,” Cooper said, after naming Hannity, who shares the same time slot. “But they might do a better job of checking their dates and getting their story straight.” The slam came after Cooper ran clips of

The Illinois State Senate is now considering a bill the House overwhelmingly approved Wednesday that would allow parents or guardians to medicate their children with cannabis while they’re at school. State Rep. Lou Lang, D-Skokie, sponsored the measure, which sailed through the House with a 99-1 vote. The bill was brought to the floor after the family of 11-year-old Ashley Surin filed a federal lawsuit against the state and Schaumburg School District 54 for failing to include public schools among the places people can possess medical cannabis. Surin has been prescribed medical cannabis to treat seizures related to a leukemia

Washington = The U.S. has opened a probe into alleged coordination by AT&T Inc, Verizon Communications and a telecommunications standards organization to hinder consumers from easily switching wireless carriers, a person briefed on the matter said on Friday. Verizon and AT&T acknowledged the government probe and said they were working with regulators. At issue is a technology that could make carriers’ business more volatile. Called eSIM, it allows consumers to switch wireless providers without having to insert a new physical SIM card, an identifying microchip. That makes it easier to compare wireless networks and easily select a

Krikorian was born on a Turkish roadside in 1921 as his parents were trying to flee the aftermath of the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks more than a century ago.

President Trump vs. the
Foreign Policy Swamp

Posted By: Hazymac- 4/20/2018 8:19:16 PM     Post Reply
President Trump´s decision to postpone new economic sanctions against Russia on Monday brought some clarity to the foreign policy fight in Washington. The issue isn´t whether UN Ambassador Nikki Haley gets confused, as she waspishly denied, but the fact that the president is fighting the swamp single-handed. Here´s the Financial Times´ snarky Edward Luce in a blast email this morning: "The explanation is simple. Everyone in the Trump administration is really hawkish on Russia. Except the president. On most days the train simply keeps running without him. People such as Haley talk to Jim Mattis, the defence secretary, John Bolton, the

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

Mike Pompeo is qualified to be secretary of state. There is no doubt about that. He is competent — as director of the CIA, he has managed a complex organization deftly, winning the respect of intelligence professionals otherwise not favorably inclined to President Trump. He is experienced — in an administration with more than its share of neophytes, he has served in Washington, initially as a congressman, since 2011. He is highly credentialed — he graduated top of his class at West Point and went to Harvard Law School, where he edited the Harvard Law Review.

The BLM said an official notice of the analysis, known as scoping, will be published in the Federal Register on Friday, kicking off a
