Just weeks ago, buoyed by favorable polls and a sense of her campaign´s momentum, progressive legal activists dared to embrace the possible: That President Hillary Clinton, presented with at least one and perhaps as many as four Supreme Court vacancies, would smash the three-decade-long conservative majority, pushing the court firmly to the left. Then, President-elect Donald J. Trump happened. The surprise Republican tsunami that swept a celebrity billionaire to power and gave the GOP control of the Senate – along with the Supreme Court nomination process – swamped liberals´ hopes of a high court recalibration in their favor. "Trump´s decisive,

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said Friday he won´t be attending the inauguration of President-elect Trump in January, because of his plan to boost enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. "I´m not going to this inauguration, I can´t go to this inauguration, because he continues to spew hatred, bigotry and prejudice even after he said he was going to bring us all together," Gutierrez said on CNN. "But he´s not," he added. "He continues to spew this kind of ... hatred. So I´m not going to be there." He did say, however, that he would be in Washington on Inauguration Day to march with people

WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump spoke by telephone with Taiwan’s president on Friday, a striking break with nearly four decades of diplomatic practice that could precipitate a major rift with China even before Mr. Trump takes office. Mr. Trump’s office said he spoke with the Taiwanese president, Tsai Ing-wen, “who offered her congratulations.” He is believed to be the first president or president-elect who has spoken to a Taiwanese leader since 1979, when the United States severed diplomatic ties with Taiwan after its recognition of the People’s Republic of China. In the statement, Mr. Trump’s office said the two leaders noted

CNN’s Dana Bash reacted tonight to President-elect Donald Trump‘s big post-victory rally by lamenting how much he attacked the media. Trump went on his usual attacks against the “dishonest media,” this time mixing it with mockery of how much the press downplayed his chances of winning. Bash said this in response: (Video) “There were lots of divisive comments, especially and unfortunately about the press, which I wish he would stop doing, not only because we are members of the press, but because as leader of the free world, you do set an example for free press in countries around the

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The raw, lingering emotion of the 2016 presidential campaign erupted into a shouting match here Thursday as top strategists of Hillary Clinton’s campaign accused their Republican counterparts of fueling and legitimizing racism to elect Donald Trump. The extraordinary exchange came at a postmortem session sponsored by Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, where top operatives from both campaigns sat across a conference table from each other. As Trump’s team basked in the glow of its victory and singled out for praise its campaign’s chief executive, Stephen K. Bannon, who was absent, the row of grim-faced Clinton aides who sat

How A Christmas Story Went from
Low-Budget Fluke to an American Tradition

It’s not A Wonderful Lif anymore. It hasn’t been since 1983, the year of A Christmas Story—the now classic film about nine-year-old Ralphie Parker’s thwarted desire for a forbidden Christmas present: an official Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-Shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time. A sleeper of a movie, A Christmas Story forever changed the cozy, sentimental holiday-movie genre. When we think of pre-1983 holiday movies, we think of plum puddings like Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol (the best of several incarnations being the 1951 version, in which Alastair Sim plays

Hillary Clinton and Vice President Biden will headline a star-studded send-off for Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid on Thursday as the Nevada Democrat ends his historic 30-year run in the chamber. With Congress aiming to end the legislative session next week, Reid’s last big day in office will conclude at a gala in the Kennedy Caucus Room at the Russell Senate Office Building, according to senior advisers. Behind the scenes, Reid is dispensing parting wisdom to his caucus, with his most senior political adviser giving an address to Democrats about how Reid delivered Nevada for Clinton and won every

MSNBC and NBC News anchor Chuck Todd ripped the Donald Trump campaign, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and even the media Friday in the wake of the public bickering and finger-pointing that took place at a post-election seminar at Harvard University. Todd noted that the Harvard conference had historically been cordial, and a place for incisive and illuminating election postmortems. Thursday, however, the event was marred with a shouting match between representatives of the two major campaigns and arguments between the media and political operatives. “What we saw yesterday — and I’m not going to single out individuals– nobody has any

Why Trump gets more hype out of 1,000

At least for a moment, ­President-elect Donald Trump appeared to achieve this week what President Obama struggled to do for most of the past eight years: convince Americans that he can fix the economy. Cheering crowds greeted Trump during his victory lap through the Rust Belt this week following the announcement that the nation’s new negotiator-in-chief had struck a deal with heating and air conditioner manufacturer Carrier to keep a factory in Indiana from moving to Mexico. The agreement affected roughly 1,000 jobs and provided Trump the opportunity to deliver on a powerful campaign promise even before taking office. The

A really really angry Sally Field announced on Chelsea Handler´s Netflix show on Thursday that she joined Twitter in order to understand why people voted for Donald Trump. As you can see in Chelsea´s tweet video below, Field is not only clueless as to why Trump won the election but has no real understanding of how our federal Constitution works. (Video/Tweet) I want to know what other people are thinking. I want to know why they voted for this man who does not stand for anything and has no real evidence. There is no evidence. If you look at his

Minutes after President-Elect Donald Trump’s “Thank You Tour” rally in Cincinnati, Ohio Thursday night CNN commentator, and former White House adviser, David Gergen voiced his displeasure for the man during Anderson Cooper 360. (Snip) Gergen then went on a small rant about how America’s path is going to change under a Trump presidency: This is goodbye to American leadership in the world. It’s goodbye to globalization. He´s bringing America home. He´s going to lead a nativist, nationalistic, populist movement and if you want to join up with him fine, if you don´t, forget it. Cooper countered by noting that American

Kerry: People can´t tell ´what´s

Secretary of State John Kerry lamented Friday that technology has allowed the quick spread of false information to the point that people are struggling to "know what´s real and what isn´t." "This is one of our chief challenges today, is to manage information and to do it in a way that average folks at home can know what´s real and what isn´t, what´s true, what´s false, and try to build consensus around a common set of understandings," Kerry said during the Mediterranean Dialogues Conference in Rome. "Technology has brought the world closer, yes; but it´s also enabled bigots and demagogues
