Post reporter Robert Costa takes
over helm of PBS’s ‘Washington Week’

Washington Post, by Ellen McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/20/2017 8:52:15 PM

Washington Post national political reporter Robert Costa is taking over for the late Gwen Ifill as moderator of the long-running PBS political talk show “Washington Week.” Costa, 31, will remain in his current position at The Post, covering Congress and the Trump administration. “I just really want to bring that reporting mentality on Friday and have a conversation with the best reporters in town,” Costa said in an interview Thursday. “At a time when everyone talks about fake news, this show is about real news. And it has a real legacy.” Loyal viewers of the program will not be surprised by the selection.

Comments:
It´s always good to see which way the deck chairs on the "fake news" are being rearranged. If NPR and PBs are scrapped under Trump´s budget plan, Costa may have wasted a career move.

I never watched when Ifill was the moderator, and I´m certainly not going to start watching now. Who is this 31-year-old Costa?

Katie Couric has signed off as a global news anchor, a job she began more than three years ago at Yahoo. The one-time Today host and CBS Nightly News anchor has ended her interview show for Yahoo, which became part of Oath -- a new company with 50-plus media and technology brands including AOL.com, HuffPost, Yahoo Sports and Yahoo Mail -- when Verizon closed its acquisition of the media company last month. Couric is expected to work with Oath on individual projects, according to Oath. “I’m very proud of my time at Yahoo - anchoring live events, political coverage, and breaking news with a team of very talented

Parties condemn N.K. provocation,
welcome additional THAAD deployment
Yonhap News Agency [Seoul, South Korea], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/29/2017 12:22:15     Post Reply
Seoul - South Korea´s ruling and opposition parties on Saturday strongly condemned North Korea for its surprise launch of a second intercontinental range ballistic missile, its second in three weeks. The ruling Democratic Party said North Korea´s sudden launch of an intercontinental range ballistic missile late Friday night was a "reckless" act, warning the North will pay the price for it. "If North Korea continues to conduct its reckless provocations, it will surely repent for them," Baek Hye-ryeon, the ruling party´s spokeswoman, (Snip) The ruling party then welcomed President Moon Jae-in's decision to deploy additional THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) launchers in Seongju, southeast South Korea,

The Pakistani Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was based on corruption accusations stemming from the Panama Papers, a trove of leaked documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. The ruling is one of the most stunning outcomes of the documents’ release, which implicated dozens of politicians and powerful international figures in shady offshore business dealings. Mr. Sharif is the second world leader, along with Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson, the former prime minister of Iceland, to resign as a result of the leak. What did the Panama Papers reveal?

Seoul - North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un said Pyongyang´s latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile confirmed all the US mainland was within striking range, state media reported Saturday. Kim said Friday´s test demonstrated the North´s ability to launch "at any place and time," the Korean Central News Agency reported, adding "the leader said proudly the test also confirmed all the US mainland is within our striking range." (Snip) The report said the test confirmed the missile´s nuclear detonation control mechanism operated normally and that the warhead could endure the intense heat of re-entering the atmosphere.

checks and balances after defeat for
Obamacare repeal in Senate
Independent [UK], by Alexandra Wilts    Original Article

Washington DC - Donald Trump has called for a change to Senate voting rules in the wake of a devastating defeat for his push to repeal Obamacare – one of his major campaign promises. The President wrote on Twitter that in order to pass "great future legislation" the Senate "must immediately go to a 51 vote majority, not senseless 60". The Senate's Republican leadership had been trying to pass their healthcare bill, which would have dismantled the Affordable Care Act – otherwise known as Obamacare – under the budget reconciliation process. To conform to the rules of reconciliation legislation — meaning that the Senate only

Washington - For months, conservative news outlets have built a case against Imran Awan, his wife, two brothers and a friend, piece by piece. To hear some commentators tell it, with the help of his family and a cushy job on Capitol Hill, Mr. Awan, a Pakistani-American, had managed to steal computer hardware, congressional data and even — just maybe — a trove of internal Democratic National Committee emails that eventually surfaced last summer on WikiLeaks. It helped that the story seems to involve, if only tangentially, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman who is the former chairwoman of the committee and an

White House tensions flare in the open as
Scaramucci rips Priebus in vulgar tirade

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/28/2017 9:28:33     Post Reply
The cinematic infighting that has consumed the White House in recent days was pushed into public view on Thursday, exposing the West Wing as the political equivalent of a New York-accented reality television show that runs on a raucous mix of drama, machismo and suspicion. The new communications director — Anthony Scaramucci, a flashy New York financier who brags that he and Trump “started out as friends” — has been trying to oust White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus (Snip) Scaramucci accused Priebus of leaking to the media about behind-the-scenes maneuverings and his own personal finances,

Ben Cardin says Senate is still in

Sen. Ben Cardin said Friday that the Senate will remain in session and could “quickly” hold a hearing if there was a new health care proposal to debate. “The Senate is in session. We could have a hearing next week. We could put hearings together quickly,” Mr. Cardin, Maryland Democrat, said on CNN. Mr. Cardin added that if a new proposal were put forward, he would want more time to debate and review it. “We also believe when you come up with proposals, you should let it be aired. You should let people have an opportunity to understand it. Recognize that the last bill we voted on was shown to us two hours before we voted on it,”

Migrant crisis: Italy backs

Italy´s cabinet has backed sending a mission to Libya to try to stem the influx of migrants. The mission would help Libya "reinforce their capacity to control their borders and national territory", said Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. It would reportedly comprise ships, planes and 700 personnel. Mr Gentiloni claimed it had been requested by Libya, but the UN-backed government there vigorously denied making any such request. In an earlier statement, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj said his administration had agreed to receive only training and arms from Italy, but said: "Libya´s national sovereignty is a red line that nobody must cross."

The young man had immigrated from El Salvador three months earlier to join his mother in Nassau County, Long Island. The gang had harassed him in El Salvador because he refused to join them. Now, in his new home, they were upping the stakes. The second time, they attacked the 19-year-old as he was on his way to work.

Tehran - Iran successfully launched a missile into space on Thursday, state media reported, two days after the United States House of Representatives approved a bill that would impose additional sanctions against the country, and Russia and North Korea. Such tests of what are essentially carrier rockets are not prohibited under the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and a group of six world powers including the United States. That agreement eased existing economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for the country’s verifiable promises to restrict its nuclear program to peaceful purposes.

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani IT staffers and brothers who were paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach. Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal. When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too.

Hillary Clinton is to call her new memoir about being beaten by Donald Trump ´What Happened´, her publisher announced Thursday. Her photograph will not feature on the cover - and she will call herself Hillary Rodham Clinton. She ran as Hillary Clinton. The memoir, published by Simon & Schuster promises to deliver the story of her defeat ´now free from the constraints of politics´. It will finally break the pattern of months by containing details of her ´mistakes´ - but firmly blame James Comey and the Russians. One friend of Clinton told The Hill it would be a ´bombshell´.

What would you conclude if you voted for a candidate or a party because of a promise to repeal or change a law that you strongly felt was harmful and unjust, but once in office the party refused to do it? You might conclude, rightly, that those politicians didn’t really work for you, and the party didn’t care what you thought. That’s precisely the message Republicans have been sending their constituents throughout the Obamacare repeal fiasco. The failure of Senate Republicans to pass a so-called “skinny repeal” in the early hours of Friday is merely the latest instance of GOP

WASHINGTON -- The senator who was defeated by President Obama in his 2008 quest for the White House stepped in to cast the deciding vote to kill Senate Republicans´ last-gasp effort to repeal Obama´s signature healthcare legislation before the summer recess. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) were expected to vote against the "skinny repeal" -- a bare-bones repeal of only the individual and employer mandates as well as the medical device tax; the latter has drawn bipartisan criticism over the years. Vice President Mike Pence was at the Capitol, ready to cast a tie-breaking vote as he had to

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

President Trump has just announced via Twitter that he has fired Reince Priebus from the position of Chief-of-Staff and has replaced him with DHS Secretary John Kelly. It would appear GOPe Priebus’s inability to guide ObamaCare was the final straw.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion
