U.S. airlines American Airlines Group Inc (AAL.O) and Southwest Airlines Co (LUV.N) said on Tuesday that they would give their employees a $1,000 bonus in light of the recent U.S. tax bill. The airlines join a host of other companies such as AT&T (T.N), Boeing Co (BA.N) and Wells Fargo & Co (WFC.N) promising to pay bonuses or invest more in training after the biggest overhaul of the U.S. tax code in 30 years, which cuts the corporate tax rate. American Airlines will distribute the bonus to each team member, excluding officers, at its mainline and wholly owned regional carriers,

Yep, Nancy P-Lousy says "Armageddon!", as people get $1,000 bonuses in many large companies, and by Feb their take home pay will increase.

Horrors! More money in people´s hands. How will they deal with it!

58 percent say Trump is
intelligent in Gallup poll
The Hill [Washington DC], by Julia Manchester    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 6/25/2018 2:03:52     Post Reply
A new poll from Gallup finds those surveyed give President Trump high ratings on his intelligence but lower ones for his ability to work with both sides of the political aisle. Fifty-eight percent of Americans surveyed said they would characterize Trump as intelligent, the Gallup poll found, while 40 percent said they would not characterize him as intelligence. Gallup said it has not posed the question on intelligence to U.S. voters frequently enough with past presidents to give enough historical context. However, the polling giant asked a similar question in the 1990s, regarding former Presidents Clinton and George H.W. Bush.

Toward the end of his speech to Nevada Republicans on Saturday, President Trump issued a warning: Democrats were working to abolish Immigration and Customs and Enforcement, or ICE. “They want to get rid of ICE!” the president said. “Our ICE people are so tough. They’re so much tougher than the MS-13 people.” On Sunday morning, CNN’s Jake Tapper put the question to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Did the senator, a democratic socialist and 2016 presidential candidate, the most prominent left-wing politician in the country, want to abolish ICE? “I think what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration

DENVER — Jared Polis, a leading Democratic candidate for Colorado governor, walked into the home of a prominent marijuana entrepreneur for a campaign event recently, wearing a suit and bright blue sneakers. He circled a room of voters, wound his way past the margarita machine and then fired off his vision for Colorado. Single-payer health care. An all-renewable electric grid. State-funded full-day preschool. The crowd showered him with applause. “Support the man,” said a host, Scott Durrah, 53, “because we really need him.” Colorado, one of the purplest states in the nation, has seen dramatic social and economic change in

In the latest CBS News Battleground Tracker poll, Arizona voters weighed in on their state´s U.S. senators, and each got more negative than positive views. Partisanship shapes opinion, but not in the way we typically see in politics today. GOP Sen. John McCain gets his highest favorable rating from Arizona Democrats of all partisan groups -- 62 percent view him favorably. It´s voters in his own party who give McCain his most negative ratings -- nearly 7 in 10 view him unfavorably. (Chart) President Trump has been critical of McCain, particularly on the senator´s vote against the Republican health care

Chicago - A division of the American Library Association has voted to remove the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award, over concerns about how the author portrayed African Americans and Native Americans. The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) made the unanimous decision to change the name on Saturday, at a meeting in New Orleans. The name of the prize was changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award. The association said Wilder “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values”. The first award

New York - Former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has hit out at Russian President Vladimir Putin, describing him as the leader of a “white supremacist and xenophobic movement” which is designed to “weaken America’s traditional alliances and undermine democracy.” The former secretary of state did not mince words when discussing the Mr Putin during a lecture at Trinity College Dublin, and declared that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election - which is the subject of multiple investigations in the US Congress and the FBI - as a "clear and present danger" to Western democracy.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado Parks and Wildlife is urging people to avoid touching baby wildlife after its Colorado Springs office received nine fawns in just 10 days. In a tweet posted Friday, CPW’s southeast office said the ninth fawn was turned in by two people who didn’t have details about the animal’s past. “It is clearly far too attached to humans. Headed for rehab in Wetmore,” CPW said. (Tweet) The agency said most of the nine fawns are perfectly healthy and should have never been touched by humans. CPW posted a second video with the hashtag “#LeaveBabyWildlifeAlone.” The video

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

Comedian Tom Arnold served up a veiled warning to President Donald Trump while hinting that he and Michael Cohen, Trump´s longtime personal attorney, were teaming up to take down the president. "Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, I´m spending the weekend hanging out with Michael Cohen," Arnold told CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Friday. "And there´s a lot going on. You´ve disrespected [Cohen] and his family, and there´s a lot going on." Harlow pressed Arnold for specifics and asked whether Cohen, who is under criminal investigation on suspicion of campaign-finance violations, bank fraud, wire fraud, and illegal lobbying, was cooperating with law-enforcement

´Abolish ICE!´ is the new rallying
cry for progressive Democrats
NBC News, by Alex Seitz-Wald    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Fueled by outrage over the Trump administration´s immigration policies, a small but growing number of progressive Democratic candidates are signing onto a nascent effort to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). It’s a radical idea and one that was confined to the fringes just months ago in a party that has historically balanced calls for better treatment of migrants with support for stronger border security and enforcement. But as an emboldened left challenges old assumptions about everything from health care to jobs, doing away with ICE has become the latest issue left-wing insurgents can

TIME Stands By Erroneous Crying Girl

TIME magazine is standing by a cover photo and story critical of Trump’s immigration policies that reporters exposed Friday as factually incorrect, wildly misleading, and lacking important context. The cover features a 2-year-old Honduran girl sobbing as she looks up at Trump, with the words “Welcome to America.” Inside, TIME reported the little girl was one of those separated from her mother because of the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy on families crossing the border illegally. She was taken “screaming” from her mother by border agents, the report claimed. (Tweet) The photo and story made a big splash in the

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

Waters was referencing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia this weekend. Waters said, “I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it’s wrong for what they’re doing on so many fronts.

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning that the US should deport immigrants who enter the US illegally with no legal process. Trump said once "somebody comes in" the country, they should be removed with "no Judges or Court Cases" — a move that would violate the long-established legal precedent for immigrants´ rights to due process. (Snip) The US Constitution´s Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to "due process of law" in criminal proceedings. In 1953, the Supreme Court clarified this right extended to non-US citizens.

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs.

Rep. Barbara Lee, California Democrat, accused the Trump administration Sunday of “criminalizing” illegal immigrants. Ms. Lee, who joined a congressional delegation that visited intake and detention facilities Saturday near the border in Texas, described the conditions as “tragic.” “I mean, these people are being criminalized,” said Ms. Lee on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We went into the processing center, where there are cages, certainly. People think there aren’t, there are, we saw these cages.” At the detention center, she said, “we talked to maybe 10 or 15 mothers. These are jails. These are prisons. These are people

Former President Bill Clinton told investigators that he didn’t think the investigation into wife Hillary Clinton’s emails “amounted to much, frankly” and thus found nothing wrong with initiating an impromptu meeting with the attorney general on a Phoenix airport tarmac. Mr. Clinton testified to investigators that he believed he knew the “truth of that whole thing.” He said he did not want to snub Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch when he walked the 30 yards from his private jet to hers. He told her she was doing a great job and that she was his favorite Cabinet secretary. The airport scene —
