Expedia names Chelsea
Clinton to board of directors

CNN Money, by Jackie Wattles

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 3/17/2017 10:44:54 PM

Expedia just named Chelsea Clinton to its board of directors. In a public filing posted Friday, the travel site said it named Clinton -- the daughter of Hillary Clinton -- as a member of its board on Thursday. Expedia (EXPE) said Clinton will be paid "in accordance with the company´s standard compensation policies" for board members. According to an Expedia proxy statement from August, non-employee directors were paid a $45,000 "annual retainer" and awarded $250,000 worth of stock in 2015. Board members who served on various committees were paid an additional $10,000 to $20,000. But Expedia said in a filing

Ironically, my other half and I were talking about boards of directors earlier today.

I am of the opinion that appointments to boards of directors are a means to curry favor from politicians while not running afoul of campaign finance laws. Corporation A can only donate so much to a politician, but stick them on the board, where they may make one meeting a year, and you can compensate them 6 figures. If the politician wishes to avoid the appearance of improprietary, name their spouse or kid to the board.

One of the things I do check when I get my annual reports and proxy statements for some of my retirement accounts is to see who is being placed on these corporate boards.

If I find they were (1) a Clinton crony, (2) an Obama crony, or (3) a RINO (for example, one firm runs Richard Armitage, Colin Powell´s stooge), they get a NO vote from me.

House Democrats celebrate the
GOP’s failure on health care bill
Washington Examiner [DC], by Seth McLaughlin    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/24/2017 4:56:52     Post Reply
House Democrats took a “victory” lap Friday after their Republican colleagues pulled the plug on their plan to scrap Obamacare. “Today is a great day for our country,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat. “What happened on the floor is a victory for the American people.” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, pulled the bill Friday after it was clear that President Trump and House GOP leaders had fallen short of securing enough support to pass their plan to overhaul the health care system. It marked the second time in as many day that Republicans had to scrap their plan

Washington - Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus met with President Donald Trump on Wednesday about infrastructure and reducing urban crime, calling the sit-down a "positive" first step toward finding common ground. The lawmakers presented Trump with a 130-page policy proposal titled "We Have a Lot to Lose: Solutions to Advance Black Families in the 21st Century," a reference to Trump´s repeated query on the campaign trail asking what did blacks have to lose by supporting him. "We think it´s a positive first start and we´re going to continue the dialogue," Representative Karen Bass, a Democrat from

NBC reporter takes heat for calling
deadly London terror attack ‘small-bore’

One of the intelligence reporters for NBC News faced fierce backlash on social media on Wednesday for referring to London’s terror attack as “small bore.” Four people were killed and at least 20 people were injured near the British parliament in a terror attack that utilized a vehicle to plow through victims. The knife-wielding suspect was eventually subdued on Westminster Bridge, which prompted NBC’s Ken Dilanian to warn over 17,000 followers not to “freak out.” “I know it’s a big story, but every time we freak out about a small-bore terror attack we play into their hands,” Mr. Dilian said.

Washington - Whoops. The Transportation Department said Wednesday an employee inadvertently posted a tweet under Secretary Elaine Chao´s name urging a Democratic member of Congress to sue President Donald Trump. Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, tweeted on Tuesday, "Get ready for impeachment," an apparent reference to Trump. Chao´s offical account responded Wednesday: "SUE HIS VERY SOUL MAXINE!!!" (Tweet) But according to a Transportation Department spokesperson, the tweet was "posted by an employee with access to the account" who "took action outside of his scope of work and duties and without any approvals." "We are taking appropriate action,"

The Supreme Court on Wednesday unanimously raised the bar for the educational benefits owed to millions of children with disabilities in one of the most significant special-education cases to reach the high court in decades. The opinion rejected a lower standard set by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit and used in a subsequent case by President Trump’s nominee to the high court, Neil Gorsuch, during his tenure on the appeals court.

The family of a Mexican teenager who died after being told to drink from a bottle of liquid meth has been awarded $1 million in damages. Cruz Marcelino Velazquez Acevedo, 16, arrived from Tijuana at the US border in November 2013, shaking with nerves and speaking quickly. He had no criminal record and is believed to have been paid around $150 to take the drug across the border. When confronted by border police, he said the liquid was apple juice. They asked him to drink it to prove it was not harmful – and two hours later, screaming and convulsing, he died. (Snip) “I don’t think they deliberately set out to kill the boy,” he said.

(Video) - North Korea has two allies and key trade partners: China, and Russia. However, the country has other global associates. It has a working embassy in Equatorial Guinea, and it was known to send workers to Western Europe. After the assassination of Kim Jong Nam—the half brother of Kim Jong Un—Malaysia’s visa-free relationship with North Korea became internationally known. Many African countries dominate the list of those with relationships with North Korea.(Snip) For countries that get sidelined by the U.S. and E.U., North Korea is an appealing tradepartner.

One of the most important things we learned Monday from the House Intelligence Committee hearings on Russian influence of the 2016 elections was that the hackers may have wanted to get caught. FBI director James Comey said Russia´s cyber intruders were "unusually loud," as though they "wanted us to see what they were doing." That´s counterintuitive. The Russians have officially denied taking active measures in the 2016 election. They have complained that the toxic environment in Washington has scuttled any chance for a reset in the relationship with the U.S. So if Kremlin proxies were meddling in

The head of the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday warned of a "strong correlation" between dramatic drops in violent crimes being reported by Hispanics in Los Angeles and fears of being deported, suggesting that the community may be avoiding contact with local law enforcement in the wake of immigration polices favored by the Trump administration. Newly-released LAPD crime statistics for 2017 show that among Hispanics, reports of rape have dropped 25 percent while those of spousal abuse have decreased by 9.8 percent. Similar reductions from the start of this year were not found in any other ethnic group,

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

In the last three months of the Obama presidency, significant personal information from and about the Trump transition was collected and widely disseminated at intelligence agencies, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes. Dozens of intelligence reports provided to Nunes by an unnamed whistleblower were floating around during the sensitive transition period following the election, he said. The information collection itself may have technically been legal, but the failure to properly mask the information “alarmed” the California congressman, who notified the White House of the surveillance and dissemination of information on Wednesday afternoon.

Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared.

Democrats plan to filibuster Neil Gorsuch’s nomination for the Supreme Court, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said Thursday. Speaking on the Senate floor Thursday morning, Schumer said Gorsuch -- who is three days into his confirmation hearings with the Senate Judiciary Committee -- will need 60 votes to be confirmed. Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote.

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and
