I wasn´t supposed to like George H.W. Bush --
Then I got to know him

Fox News, by Mark Weinberg

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/1/2018 4:28:02 AM

I first met George H.W. Bush, who died Friday at age 94, not long before he was elected as Ronald Reagan’s vice president in 1980. At the time, if anyone was predisposed not to like the future vice president and president, it was me. In 1980 I was holding my first job in politics, working as a press aide to former Texas Gov. John B. Connally – who, like Bush and Ronald Reagan, was seeking the 1980 Republican presidential nomination. None of Connally’s aides had anything nice to say about Bush. Apparently, Texas wasn’t big enough for the two of them. I had no personal knowledge of Bush and therefore, no reason to doubt

It is irrelevant whether or not he was likable. He was an abject failure at the job he was supposed to do.

Unvaccinated teens are fact-checking their parents —
and trying to get shots on their own
Washington Post, by Alex Horton    Original Article

Ethan Lindenberger, frustrated by years of arguments about his mother’s anti-vaccination stance, staged a quiet defection on Reddit. The Norwalk, Ohio, teenager needed advice, he said, on how to inoculate himself against both infectious disease and his family’s dogma. At 18, he was old enough, Lindenberger explained. He wanted to get vaccinated. But he didn’t know how. “Because of their beliefs I’ve never been vaccinated for anything, God knows how I’m still alive,” Lindenberger wrote days before Thanksgiving. As anti-vaccination movements metastasize amid outbreaks of dangerous diseases, Internet-savvy teenagers are fact-checking their parents’ decisions in a digital health reawakening

Jeff Bezos’ Journey From Private
Family Man to Tabloid Sensation

One Saturday night last September, a crowd of celebrities, Silicon Valley titans and Hollywood executives gathered at television producer Mark Burnett’s Malibu mansion for a birthday party celebrating venture capitalist Vivi Nevo. The richest of them all was Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos, whose stake in Amazon is worth about $125 billion. He sat in the middle of the action and appeared to relish the spotlight, said a guest who knows Mr. Bezos. A flashy party is not the place many would have expected to find the billionaire, who until recently had usually taken pains

Ivankacare? Trump faces conservative opposition
to family leave program pushed by his daughter
Washington Free Beacon, by Melissa Quinn    Original Article

President Trump’s call during his State of the Union address for nationwide family leave led to applause from lawmakers and even a holler from one Republican, but conservative groups are sitting on their hands, fearing the president is about to create a new entitlement program that could quickly expand. “The biggest concern is the potential explosion of the program over time, and then having a federal program be the one source that everyone has to go to would not serve workers well,” Heritage Foundation research fellow Rachel Greszler told the Washington Examiner.

The defining characteristic of the Democratic presidential field in its current configuration is the phoniness of the candidates. This characteristic is shared by all of the major entrants. Consider: Elizabeth Warren claimed to be an Indian. She isn’t. Kamala Harris claims to have been a “progressive prosecutor.” She wasn’t. Amy Klobuchar holds herself out as “Minnesota Nice.” She isn’t. Klobuchar’s mistreatment of staff members is legendary. In 2015, Harry Reid, then the Senate Majority Leader, felt the need to counsel Ms. Nice about it. Kirsten Gillibrand posed as a moderate throughout her time as a congresswoman

The dominant media spends day after day accusing Trump of this or that “lie.” It puts the worst possible construction on his every utterance. Meanwhile, the high priests of that media get caught out in plagiarism scandals and the like and never pay the slightest price for those acts of brazen dishonesty. Fareed Zakaria is a well-documented plagiarist, but CNN has no qualms about giving him a show from which to attack Trump’s integrity from every conceivable angle. Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, who often lacerates Trump for not owning up to his deceptions,

In December 2014, I had an abortion at 29 weeks, after my first baby was diagnosed with a brain abnormality called lissencephaly. The early diagnosis—lissencephaly is sometimes not diagnosed until after birth—meant her case was severe and her prognosis was grim: We could expect her to live for two to six years while suffering from frequent respiratory infections and intermittently choking on her own saliva. Her cognitive development would be arrested or even reversed by painful seizures. She might have been able to smile socially and/or track motion with her eyes, but maybe not.

If you haven’t read the details of the Green New Deal, let me save you the trouble: it’s a raging assault on America’s already-declining working-and-middle-class. When Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her fellow Green-Marxists in the Democratic Party put forward their proposal, they made it clear that this program was intended to be used on the “most at-risk” communities in the United States. Thenow-deleted (though it is archived) FAQ section on Congresswoman Cortez’s website specifically outlines the need to “Reverse climate change by fully rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure,

After a one-year stint in New York, the Recording Academy returned to Los Angeles’ Staples Center for Grammys 2019, the 61st annual edition of music’s biggest night. Still, the Big Apple was represented by New York’s own Alicia Keys helming the festivities as the first female host in 14 years. And the big winner was country-pop star Kacey Musgraves, who brought home four gramophones, including Album of the Year for “Golden Hour.” But as always, it was mostly about the performances. (Yes, Janelle! No, Jennifer!) From moving acceptance speeches to rousing live sets,

Right from the outset, the six-page document laying out the “Green New Deal” seemed like a joke, something a few devious wags in the Republican Party whipped up to parody an expansive environmental plan conjured up by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The first words in the document put together by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez to explain the congressional resolution are “Overview — We will begin work immediately on Green New Deal bills to put the nuts and bolts on the plan described in this resolution (important to say so someone else can’t claim this mantle).” “Important to say so someone else

What would Dr. John Silber make of BU alumna Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? The longtime president of Boston University would not be impressed, I dare say, with the semiliterate millennial who has gone in months from sticky-fingered Manhattan bartender to the intellectual prophet of the Democratic Party. Which just goes to show you how much the party has changed since Silber was its nominee for governor in 1990. During that campaign, he used to wonder, aloud, why so many illegal immigrants from “tropical climes” were moving to Lawrence. As if he didn’t know.

The Democrats’ disastrous week
highlights Trump’s sanity

If you are of the mind that President Trump is to blame for everything wrong and wacky in our politics, then last week was a very bad week for you. The evidence begins with Trump’s very good State of the Union speech, where he was alternately conciliatory toward Democrats and ruthless in contrasting his policies with theirs. Reckless in their rhetoric and resistance, Dems make themselves vulnerable to charges that they support open borders, socialism and infanticide. It doesn’t help that a lasting image of the speech was the women-in-white brigade

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday afternoon condemned Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) anti-Semitic remarks, stating, “This kind of intolerance has no place in Congress—or anywhere in American society.” “Rep. Omar’s use of an anti-Semitic stereotype was offensive and irresponsible,” Schumer tweeted. “This kind of intolerance has no place in Congress—or anywhere in American society.” “No one should invoke anti-Semitic tropes during policy disagreements,” he added. (Tweet) Schumer’s statement came soon after the House Democratic leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD), condemned Omar and urged the freshman congresswoman to immediately apologize

“Redemption.” That word was used repeatedly as five black leaders from across Virginia gathered Monday urging state legislators to rescind statements calling for Gov. Ralph Northam’s resignation following his blackface photo scandal. On the steps of the Capitol, former Richmond City Council Member Henry “Chuck” Richardson read a prepared statement, saying that racial issues in the U.S. still permeate virtually every aspect of American life. “There are no more complex, abiding and haunting questions in America than those surrounding race,” Richardson said. “And through it all is the constant that though we have come far, we still have

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is pulling hundreds of National Guard troops from the state’s southern border, in a rebuke to President Trump’s characterization of immigration. "The border ´emergency´ is a manufactured crisis," Newsom is expected to say say during his State of the State address Tuesday. "And California will not be part of this political theater.” Last year, former California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown agreed to deploy National Guard troops to California’s border with Mexico, but insisted that they would be instructed to enforce immigration laws. Brown’s successor made the decision to pull the 360 troops currently stationed at

The world’s insects are hurtling down the path to extinction, threatening a “catastrophic collapse of nature’s ecosystems”, according to the first global scientific review. More than 40% of insect species are declining and a third are endangered, the analysis found. The rate of extinction is eight times faster than that of mammals, birds and reptiles. The total mass of insects is falling by a precipitous 2.5% a year, according to the best data available, suggesting they could vanish within a century. The planet is at the start of a sixth mass extinction in its history, with huge losses already

Sen, Kamala Harris “broke news” during a radio interview as she admitted she once smoked pot. The California Democrat and 2020 presidential contender made her attempt to appeal to average voters as she reiterated her support for legalizing marijuana while appearing on a nationally syndicated radio program Monday. Speaking with New York City radio station WWPR’s “The Breakfast Club,” Harris pushed back on comments by host Charlamagne Tha God. “They say you oppose legalizing weed,” Charlamagne said. “That’s not true,” Harris said. “And look, I joke about it, half-joke about it. Half my family’s from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?”

CHICAGO –The Chicago metropolitan area was ranked as the most corrupt U.S. city in a new report from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Along with Chicago, Los Angeles topped the list of the most public corruption convictions in America, based on the number of federal corruption convictions between 1976 and 2017. Chicago had 1,731 convictions during that time period, while the Central District of California had 1,534. The Manhattan area had 1,327 and Miami had 1,165, according to the report. Washington, D.C. had 1,159. Drawing information from the Department of Justice, the report shows 25 public figures were convicted

Washington - Negotiators in Congress say they have reached an agreement in principle to fund the government and avoid another partial government shutdown. The emerging agreement was announced by a group of lawmakers, including Republican Sen. Richard Shelby and Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey, after a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill. The talks had cratered over the weekend because of Democratic demands to limit immigrant detentions by federal authorities, but lawmakers apparently broke through that impasse Monday evening. Now they will need the support of President Donald Trump, whose signature will be needed ahead of the deadline at midnight Friday. If lawmakers don’t act, hundreds

The Grammys always play host to some of award season´s most extravagant and ridiculous fashions, but this year may well have taken the cake as far as baffling sartorial choices. From the inexplicably large shoulders on Janelle Monae´s unique dress to the Monsters Inc-esque ensemble worn by rapper Tierra Whack, there was no shortage of bizarre outfits on the red carpet at the glittering event. But it was Jennifer Lopez who was perhaps the most surprising star to make an appearance on the worst dressed list; the 49-year-old singer and actress wore a pale blue sleeveless gown with an inexplicably
