NBC Universal Senior Vice President for Booking, News & Entertainment, Matt Zimmerman, has been fired for sexual misconduct. “We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result he has been dismissed,” a company spokesperson told TheWrap. Zimmerman was promoted to VP of booking back in 2014 to some fanfare. In a note to staff, “We are fortunate to have such great talent engaged in booking exclusive, powerful interviews across NBC News,” then NBC News President Deborah Turness wrote in a memo to staff, TVNewser

Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach says the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity will be “handed off” to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to “more effectively” investigate voter fraud without being “stonewalled” by Democrats. In an interview with Breitbart News, Kobach said the news that President Trump is dissolving the voter fraud commission should not be grounds for leftist organizations and Democrats — who sought to stop the investigations into double voting and ballots cast by non-citizens — to celebrate, as the investigations will continue under DHS. “What’s happening is a tactical shift where the

In light of the current Iran protests, former secretary of Defense Leon Panetta told CNN that President Barack Obama should have supported the 2009 Green movement protesters in Iran. CNN´s Jake Tapper asked Panetta about the 2009 protests in an interview Tuesday evening. "Do you think the Obama administration dropped the ball by not more aggressively standing with the protesters, whether on its own or in Congress with our European allies and others?" Panetta, who directed the CIA during the protests and later served as Obama´s secretary of defense from 2011 to 2013, essentially said yes. "Well, I remember that

On Wednesday’s broadcast of “MSNBC Live,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman Representative Joe Crowley (D-NY) stated that Democrats want a clean DACA bill and dubbed a border wall a waste of money.Crowley said, “I think there’s a false premise here, in other words, equating security and border security with the DACA individuals themselves. They are not a security risk to the American people. They love this country. This is the country they know and love, and they are now in a state of limbo. And unless the president, who has promised to address this issue, works to make that happen in

In an appearance on FNC’s “Fox News @ Night” on Tuesday, Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial hopeful Kris Kobach said any plan that gives amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy would “cause a surge in illegal immigration.”He added that surge in illegal immigration should be combatted with multiple reforms, including mandatory E-Verify, which would bar employers from hiring illegal aliens for U.S. jobs. Partial transcript as follows: DACA is bad policy. It’s going to hurt … those 800,000 illegal aliens are in their 20’s and 30’s, they’re

New York magazine has published an excerpt from journalist Michael Wolff’s forthcoming book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," which is a purportedly blunt and deeply sourced assessment of the administration. Wolff writes that Donald Trump never actually planned to be president. He writes that Australian media tycoon Rupert Murdoch once called Trump a “fucking idiot.” Wolff also claims Trump apparently didn’t know who former House Speaker John Boehner was until after the 2016 presidential election. It is shocking stuff. It also may very well be a load of garbage. First, Wolff´s sourcing is dubious. Most of his

Companies that recycle cardboard boxes are overwhelmed after record holiday shopping online. The U.S. Postal Service estimated it would deliver 10 percent more packages in 2017 than the year before. Amazon, the leader in online shopping, said it shipped more than five billion items for Prime members in 2017. All of that cardboard is a huge recycling challenge.One after another, a train of trucks unloads at the Burbank Recycle Center near Los Angeles.

A public interest watchdog put one Texas County on notice for failing to disclose noncitizen registered voter records, the group says. Shortly before the holidays, the Indiana-based Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) sent a letter to attorneys representing Bexar County Elections Administrator Jacqueline Callanen to state her office is “hereby notified that it now faces federal litigation should [it] continue to deny access to requested” records related to voters that were later removed for failing to be U.S. citizens. The correspondence noted that Bexar County officials denied the group’s request to personally inspect or duplicate records on the matter in

Donald Trump Jr. is taking a beating in a new book by Michael Wolff. The spanking comes from former top White House aide Steve Bannon, who heads up Breitbart News after being fired from his 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue gig. In Michael Wolff‘s buzzy book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Bannon eviscerates Don Jr., saying President Trump‘s eldest son would be “cracked like an egg on national TV” for meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump tower. He called it “treasonous.” Don Jr. isn’t keeping quiet. On Wednesday afternoon he used his Twitter platform of 2.41 million followers

A well-known family vlogger took advantage of sub-zero temperatures to explore the Mpemba effect by throwing boiling water into the air and freezing it. David Freiheit, from Quebec, Canada, posted a video to his YouTube channel where he throws a huge bucket of boiling water into the air before it turns into ice. In the clip, filmed at sunset, the father-of-three puts his trust in the scientific theory to make sure he isn´t burnt by the water he throws above his head.

Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails, including passwords to government systems, to her personal Yahoo email account before every single Yahoo account was hacked, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of emails released as part of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch shows. Abedin, the top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, used her insecure personal email provider to conduct sensitive work. This guarantees that an account with high-level correspondence in Clinton’s State Department was impacted by one or more of a series of breaches — at least one of which was perpetrated by a “state-sponsored actor.” The U.S.

A Democratic lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives berated President Trump for not spending enough time with his 11-year-old son, Barron. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) made the disgusting charge on New Year´s Eve -- when Trump, first lady Melania and Barron were all actually attending a party together. ´He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family. Never see him with Barron," Cohen wrote on Twitter. "You´d think he´d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show."

In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Nunes points out that not only did DOJ mislead his Committee about the existense of documents, they also unlawfully failed to comply with congressional requests.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which I affectionately refer to as the Diseased Centers of Control, have conducted a study showing that black men make better parents than white men. The study, conducted in 2013, came to light in a recent Washington Post article on the Post´s favorite topic – you guessed it! – of racism. The study was conducted by the CDC´s Division of Vital Statistics, centering on how involved fathers are in the lives of their children. It found the following: 1) Thirty-five percent of white fathers who don´t live with their children do not eat meals

Phase two of the remaking of Trump. An internal conflict over the trajectory of the GOP’s evolution in the Trump era quietly reached a turning point in late 2017 that has become clear only in hindsight. The “originals”–who joined Trump’s campaign when no other Republican political professionals would–have been purged or sidelined. The president has opted to outsource his legislative priorities to conventional Republicans in Congress, and he has delegated the conduct of foreign affairs to responsible administration officials. The contemptible alt-right and their “America First” allies are beside themselves even as erstwhile Trump skeptics in the GOP are suddenly

California would ban the sale of new cars and trucks powered by fossil fuels in 2040 under legislation introduced Wednesday in the state legislature. "We’re at an inflection point: we’ve got to address the harmful emissions that cause climate change," Democratic Assemblymember Phil Ting, the bill’s author, said in a statement. If the measure becomes law, by January 1, 2040, all new passenger vehicles sold in California would have to be so-called zero emission vehicles such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel cell cars. More cars are sold each year in California than in any other state -- and more than in some countries.
