The show is not over. When the Oscars ended on Sunday night with the biggest flub in recent memory, thanks to Warren Beatty mistakenly reading La La Land out as the winner of best picture, when, in fact, the prize went to Moonlight, the night ended with an uproar — and more questions than answers. That´s why just after midnight PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that tallies the Oscars, released an apologetic statement. "We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture," the statement read.

California Gov. Jerry Brown urged lawmakers to provide the funds needed to increase flood protection following the Orville dam fracture. Following heavy winter rains in the state, Brown said $437 million is needed for flood-related projects. During a press conference in Sacramento on Friday, he asked lawmakers in Washington to approve $387 million in water bond money, with the remaining $50 million coming from existing general fund money. "The recent storms have had a real impact," he said. "We´ve got dam spillways eroding. We´ve got roadways crumbling. We have aging infrastructure and it´s maxed out." The $387 million would be

Former President George W. Bush believes President Trump is off track by fighting the media and speaking out against Islam in speeches and in his executive immigration order. Bush didn´t directly criticize Trump in an NBC interview on Monday, but he used his own time in office to contrast with what how the current president is using the presidency. When asked about Trump´s spats with the media, Bush said he never considered the press the "enemy of the American people," as Trump said last week. "I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy," Bush said. "We need an independent

I’m Sorry, But Caitlyn Jenner
Is a Man Wearing a Dress

I do not write these words lightly, and there is not an ounce of mockery or, God forbid, hatred in my heart when I say that Caitlyn Jenner is a man wearing a dress. I am simply speaking the plain and obvious truth, as politically incorrect as that truth might be right now. But with transgender issues dominating the news these days, and in light of Tucker Carlson’s epic takedown of Democratic leader Zac Petkanas on national TV last week (specifically, discussing gender-related questions), it appears that now is as good a time as ever to state some things clearly. So

Sense of humor failure? Trump pulled out
of White House Correspondents´ Dinner

President Donald Trump has announced that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Dinner this year in a shocking break with tradition. ´I will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon. His announcement comes amid growing tensions between his administration and media outlets. Trump attended the dinner in 2011 with his wife Melania where he was repeatedly mocked by then-president Barack Obama. He skipped the dinner in 2016 during the presidential campaign where Obama again took aim at the then-candidate, saying: ´I´m a little

Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month. “There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.” Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received no offers,

Meryl Streep Gets All Whiny Yet Again

Oscar night is on us and perennial nominee Meryl Streep is back in the news again, whining. It wasn´t enough that she sang for her supper with a long-winded, cliche-filled diatribe against Donald Trump at the Golden Globes earlier this month, repeating every leftist canard, hitting every touchstone. Now she´s gotten into a fight over evening gowns with leading Parisian designer Karl Lagerfeld, who is well-known for having a politically conservative streak. It´s a he-said, she-said controversy. Last week, Lagerfeld accused Streep of being ´cheap´ for refusing to wear one of his gowns at the Oscars, on the grounds that she

Churches across the US are fighting back against the Trump administration’s mandate to ramp up deportations with new sanctuary practices of their own, using private homes in their congregations as shelter and potentially creating a modern-day underground railroad to ferry undocumented immigrants from house to house or into Canada. Church leaders from California to Illinois and New York told BuzzFeed News they’re willing to take their sanctuary operations for undocumented immigrants underground should federal immigration authorities, emboldened by Trump’s recent directives to take a harder line on deportations, ignore precedent and raid their campuses. “We’re willing to take that risk

Last Sunday Chelsea Clinton, usually such a reticent public figure, took to Times Square with her 2-year-old daughter, Charlotte, to march in the Muslim solidarity rally. “Thank you to all who organized #IAmAMuslimToo today — Charlotte’s 1st protest rally. #NoBanNoWallNoRaids,” she tweeted. Chelsea’s also promoting her new, co-authored book “Governing Global Health,” with a soft-focus Q&A in the Sunday New York Times and an eight-city tour in April. It’s a more high-profile push than the one for her last, a 2015 YA book called “It’s Your World,” which focused on low-key school visits — exercising, perhaps, an abundance of caution during her

Fast-food chain Wendy´s is planning to install self-order kiosks at about 1,000 locations across the country by the end of 2017 to cut labor costs, The Columbus Dispatch reported. (Snip) The report did not indicate the locations getting the kiosks. Wendy´s said it already offered kiosks to its restaurants last year and that both customers and franchisees have demanded more of the service. According to the report, the company said the kiosks would help reduce labor costs and give younger customers the experience they prefer. The kiosks cost about $15,000 each. Earlier this month, Wendy´s said it opened 150 new restaurants

The ´Bonnie and Clyde´ actors had already announced that ´La La Land´ had taken the top honor. Moonlight ultimately shined the brightest at the Oscars on Sunday, taking home the award for best picture. Barry Jenkins´ coming-of-age drama beat out the category´s frontrunners La La Land, as well as Hidden Figures, Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, Hell or High Water, Hidden Figures, Lion and Manchester by the Sea. The award was given to Moonlight after presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that La La Land had won best picture. As the film´s producers were making their acceptance speeches, producer Jordan

Obama, Democratic ´super group´ unite to end
gerrymandering, win state races, reclaim majorities

Former President Obama and other top Democrats are focusing efforts on state-level races and ending the reconfiguring of voting districts through the politically-laden process known as gerrymandering -- a combined effort to end “Trump-ism” and help their party regain control of Congress and legislatures across the country. Obama indicated before leaving the White House last fall that his short-term, post-presidency focus will be on General Assembly races and redistricting after the 2020 Census. And 2016 presidential candidate former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has become the most recent high-profile Democrat to take up the cause. “America needs non-partisan redistricting commissions,” O’Malley said
