    5 Expected Issues for Trump’s AG Nominee

    President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general faces a Senate committee Tuesday in what could turn into a proxy fight and speechifying over the probe of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

    Nominee William Barr, who was attorney general 27 years ago, will act to head off some questions from Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee by calling it “vitally important” that special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation of Russia’s interference and any cooperation from the Trump campaign.

  • Cohen's History of Falsehoods Makes His Upcoming Congressional Testimony Worthless

    Cohen’s History of Falsehoods Makes His Upcoming Congressional Testimony Worthless

    Before he begins a three-year prison sentence for lying to the Internal Revenue Service about the taxes he owed, lying to financial institutions, and lying to Congress, Michael Cohen—President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney—is scheduled to testify about Trump at a congressional hearing Feb. 7.

    Anti-Trump Democrats and others who hate the president are sure to love Cohen’s testimony. While Cohen said in 2017 that he would “take a bullet” to protect Trump, that turned out to be yet another lie. READ MORE...

  • Cummings Calls All-Out Trump Probe 'Fight for Soul of Our Democracy'

    Cummings Calls All-Out Trump Probe ‘Fight for Soul of Our Democracy’

    The new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says he will do all he can to investigate President Donald Trump and his administration over the next two years.

    “We are in a fight for the soul of our democracy,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired on Jan. 13. “And you’ve got to understand that. This is serious business.”

    Cummings said that, as chairman of the committee, he has the authority to investigate anything he deems appropriate to examine. READ MORE...

  • Trump Touts Low Veteran Unemployment Numbers

    Trump Touts Low Veteran Unemployment Numbers

    President Donald Trump celebrated low unemployment numbers for veterans Tuesday on Twitter while simultaneously taking a jab at the media.

    “Just announced that Veterans unemployment has reached an 18 year low, really good news for our Vets and their families,” Trump wrote. “Will soon be an all time low!”

    The president appears to be referencing recent media reports, including one from the Military Times, which cites data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and claims that “unemployment among post-9/11 veterans is the lowest it’s ever been.” READ MORE...

  • Ads About ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Won’t Get Men to Buy Your Blades, or Be Better Men

    Ads About ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Won’t Get Men to Buy Your Blades, or Be Better Men

    For some reason, one of the world’s largest razor companies decided to air a commercial chastising “toxic masculinity.”

    Gillette’s commercial, which debuted on Sunday, begins with the flimsy premise that traditional masculine culture promotes unrestrained violence and sexual urges, while other men condone it by shrugging and saying, “Boys will be boys.”

    The commercial’s solution is to quote journalists and celebrities scolding men to fix themselves—somewhat ironic, given the fact that the most egregious #MeToo stories have come from journalists and celebrities. READ MORE...

  • Planned Parenthood Admits Its Focus Is Abortion

    Planned Parenthood Admits Its Focus Is Abortion

    Planned Parenthood’s new president has one thing going for her: She isn’t shying away from the truth. Now that Leana Wen’s taken over for Cecile Richards, she’s finally admitting what the rest of us knew all along. Planned Parenthood may talk about a lot of issues, but it only really cares about one—abortion.

    After 12 years of lying low on its abortion business (“lying” being the operative word), Wen has a different strategy for Planned Parenthood. Telling it like it is.

    After a BuzzFeed story suggested that the Chinese-American doctor wants her group to “focus on non-abortion healthcare,” Wen surprised everyone by saying exactly what Planned Parenthood’s real priority is. “Our core mission,” she tweeted, “is providing, protecting, and expanding access to abortion and reproductive health care. We will never back down from that fight,” she vowed. “It’s a fundamental human right, and women’s lives are at stake.” READ MORE...

  • The Frustrating Flip-Flopping of Politicians Over the Border Wall

    The Frustrating Flip-Flopping of Politicians Over the Border Wall

    Despite advance billing that President Donald Trump’s border wall speech would break news and contain new information, it was mostly familiar rhetoric: Criminals and drugs, rapists and murderers are coming to America and the wall is the only way to stop them.

    The president named families who have lost loved ones at the hands of illegal immigrants. A case could be made, though, that American citizens are killing each other at higher rates during an average weekend in Chicago and other big cities than are killed by immigrants. READ MORE...

  • Feinstein's Scattershot Anti-Gun Bill Badly Misses the Mark

    Feinstein’s Scattershot Anti-Gun Bill Badly Misses the Mark

    Democrats promised that if they retook control of the House, gun control would be a top priority. They have wasted little time in seeking to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.

    Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, both D-Conn., introduced the latest version of the so-called “assault-weapons ban” with 26 other Democrats as co-sponsors.

    The bill would prohibit the future sale, transfer, manufacture, and importation of “military-style assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines—in other words, it would keep law-abiding Americans from buying many of the most popular firearms used for hunting, shooting sports, and self-defense.

  • Trump’s Shutdown Differs Greatly From Obama's

    Trump’s Shutdown Differs Greatly From Obama’s

    Services typically suspended during government shutdowns have continued to operate under the Trump administration, with insiders pointing to acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russell Vought as the reason why.

    Agencies impacted by government shutdowns are forced to severely cut back on operations, suspend services, and often send workers home without pay. The Office of Management and Budget has been using creative solutions to blunt the burden, according to a senior administration official and several prominent Republicans.
