On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Senate Minority Leader Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) argued Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election is a thousand times worse than 2000’s hanging chads and that President-Elect Donald Trump “lost the election, actually by about 3 million votes, but we have the system we have here, which, by the way, should change very soon.” Reid responded to a question on whether he thought about Russian intervention in the 2016 election undermined Trump’s incoming administration by saying, “Well, Trump’s the president. He was elected, you know, this is a hanging chad 1,000 times over. He

Many people voted for Donald Trump because they believed his promises that he would restore what they imagine were the good old days — the days when America had lots of traditional jobs mining coal and producing manufactured goods. They’re going to be deeply disappointed: The shift away from blue-collar work is mainly about technological change, not globalization, and no amount of tweets and tax breaks will bring those jobs back. But in other ways Mr. Trump can indeed restore the world of the 1970s. He can, for example, bring us back to the days when, all too often, the

Arizona Sen. John McCain said Saturday he is concerned about the relationship President-elect Trump´s anticipated pick for secretary of state may have with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump is reportedly planning to tap Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for the top diplomatic post in his administration, a move that is likely to amplify criticisms from those who have questioned the incoming Republican president´s ties to the Russian government. Putin awarded Tillerson the Order of Friendship in 2013 and his oil company has extensive business dealings with Russia. "I don´t know what Mr. Tillerson´s relationship with Vladimir Putin was but, I´ll

There’s no other way to describe it. Every December, Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post picks the biggest political loser of the past year. In 2013, Cillizza’s selection was Barack Obama. He cited the botched rollout of Healthcare.gov, the NSA domestic-surveillance scandal, the IRS’s targeting of tea-party groups, and the continuing questions about the administration’s actions before, during, and after the attack on Americans in Benghazi. In 2014, Cillizza’s selection was Obama, again. The midterm elections went abysmally for Democrats, the threat of ISIS became much clearer, Russia moved into Ukraine, and former CIA director and secretary of defense Leon

The Ghost Ship warehouse/artists’ colony fire makes for a compelling drama. And everyone knows that for a drama, you need villains, especially when a tragedy is as vivid as the horrible deaths of 36 mostly young adult creative explorers. (snip) …it has become clear that while both child protective services and even Oakland police officers had been inside the Ghost City warehouse, no one had contacted building inspectors about what they saw. It’s the old “that’s not on my job description” mentality. I have noticed over the course of my life that this attitude, related to the “work-to-rule” tactic often

A TERRIFIED Muslim community has attacked "religious intolerance" and "stupid people" after a bloody pig carcass was dumped outside a local mosque. Police officials are investigating the pig dump incident as a potential hate crime. Imam Hassan Ahmed said the event was a "clear signal" to the Muslim minority community. The Islamic holy book, the Koran, forbids Muslims from consuming pork. Mr Ahmed only found out about the dumping on his way back from a lecture on religious tolerance alongside local Christian, Jewish and Buddhist counterparts. He said: "It´s shocking. It is religious intolerance. All they did was show how

José Juárez shared on social networks the image of a one-dollar bill with a stamp saying: “Mexicans the human version of rats“. The Mexican migrant who resides in the United States explained to the local news service of Univision San Diego that he did not realize he was in possession of that bill, until he checked in his wallet for a one-dollar bill. Juarez, who lives in San Diego, California, made several purchases last Saturday December 3rd in the area of Linda Vista, and it was not until Sunday that he noticed the message on that bill, so he has

The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter. Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s

The city of Portland, Oregon, is imposing a surtax on companies whose CEOs earn more than 100 times the median pay of their lower-wage workers. Companies will see a 10 percent increase on their tax rate if the CEO makes 100 times the average employee and a 25 percent increase if they make 250 times the average salary, The New York Times reported. The new law, which passed 3-1 in the city council, is estimated to generate about $2.5 to $3.5 million per year, which will be used to address income inequality on a local level.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) have revealed their plans to introduce a constitutional amendment that will impose term limits for both congressmen and senators. In a joint op-ed for The Washington Post, the two Republican firebrands said that term limits would be an effective way for the new Republican administration to “drain the swamp.” “We believe that the rise of political careerism in modern Washington is a drastic departure from what the founders intended of our federal governing bodies. To effectively “drain the swamp,” we believe it is past time to enact term limits for Congress.”

One of the leading purveyors of climate change panic has described the Presidential election of Donald J. Trump as a “global disaster,” adding that if were to meet Trump he would tell him: “Kill yourself immediately.” Evolutionary biologist John Wiens of the University of Arizona claims that the earth is racing toward “global extinction” similar to the era of the dinosaurs, as half the world’s species are allegedly failing to cope with global warming. Wiens said that while we may not quite be at the level of “global extinction of entire species that have already happened,” we are unfortunately “on track for

As two key Republican senators call for an investigation into Russia’s meddling in the U.S. elections, President Obama is ordering a full review of any hacking that targeted the presidential election. “The president has directed the intelligence community to conduct a full review of what happened during the 2016 election process,” Homeland Security Adviser Lisa Monaco told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. “It is...to capture lessons learned from that and to report to a range of stakeholders to include the Congress.” The review is to be completed before Mr. Obama leaves office. At the same time, Sen. John
