He´s got to be better than former MA Senator (Rino) Scott Brown - on Fox Brown shows he is dumber than a bag of rocks.

So Obama loved this guy too and nominated him for undersecretary of health at Veterans Affairs? Really? Why did Obama love this guy?

As a general principal, I don´t think any zero appointment worthy of retention. Apparently, some swamps need draining less than others. I could see keeping him on as deputy...to help the new person with expertise...but in charge!?

Gayle King Hilarious Defends Vacationing

On Friday’s Access Hollywood, CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King responded to the fact that she had recently vacationed in Tahiti with, among others, the Obama family, pathetically claiming that it was “not a political statement” and no big deal since her “friends” are out of the White House. “Gayle’s Obama vacation under fire. Welcome to Access Hollywood. Did vacationing on a yachet with the Obamas get Gayle King in hot water with her CBS colleagues,” reported Access Hollywood co-host and former Today newsreader Natalie Morales. (Video) Morales’s fellow co-host Liz Hernandez added: “As a co-anchor of CBS This Morning,

President Donald Trump will welcome members of the conservative media for a small reception at the White House on Monday. Among those attending: One America News Network, The Daily Caller and Breitbart, as well as some columnists and talk radio hosts. “They were neglected the last eight years, and they’re an important medium to communicate to a massively growing number of Americans who, frankly, have grown tired of mainstream media’s coverage,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in an interview. The reception, Spicer said, is part of the administration´s overall push to open up the White House to a

A Muslim woman who has referred to “Zionist trolls” and lauded the “courage” of rock-throwing Palestinians will deliver this year’s keynote address at the commencement ceremony of a New York City university. Linda Sarsour is listed as a featured speaker for the June 1, 2017, graduation at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy, according to the school’s website. The Brooklyn-born activist, who is co-organizer of the Women’s March and a former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants.

Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive. Another woman´s name was added to that list on Sunday, when CNN host Alisyn Camerota decided to break her silence and speak out, claiming that she too was one of Ailes´ victims. ´Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me,´ Camerota announced during an appearance in ´Reliable Sources.´ Camerota, 50, worked at Fox News for 16 years before moving over

President Donald Trump recently asked for Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy´s resignation. Slate wrote that Murthy had been well-known as an Obamacare supporter and advocate of gun control, saying that “gun violence [is] a public health issue.” Afterward, a hubbub ensued over the resulting advancement of Deputy Surgeon General Rear Adm. Sylvia Trent-Adams to the position, even if only temporarily. The criticism came despite the fact that in a Facebook post announcing his resignation, Murthy wrote that with Trent-Adams as acting surgeon general, the “nation is in capable and compassionate hands”: (FB Post) So why would anyone have a problem

France could face its own ´Frexit´ in the future after far-right leader Marine Le Pen and independent centrist Emmanuel Macron beat the two main parties to go head to head in the upcoming presidential elections. Macron won 23.7 per cent of the vote and Le Pen followed closely behind with 21.7 per cent. But it is thought that Le Pen´s chances of winning are limited as supporters for Republican candidate and third place contender, Francois Fillon, will support Macron. Celebrating his victory, Macron said: ´The French have expressed their desire for change. We´re clearly turning a page in French political

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as

African Americans get less sleep than whites,
an inequality stretching back to slavery

When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

American Airlines suspended a flight attendant after an altercation on Friday in which the attendant took a stroller from a woman traveling with two young children and then argued with other passengers. The episode was captured, in part, on video. The encounter, at San Francisco International Airport, occurred while the woman was boarding a Texas-bound flight. The attendant, whose name was not released by the airline, grabbed the stroller from the woman, who was carrying 15-month-old twins, a passenger who was nearby said.

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed
