GOPers Try To Dunk On Dems Over Northam Pic Despite Dem Calls For His Ouster

Hours after reports first surfaced of a racist photo on Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s yearbook page, top state and national Democratic figures issued impassioned calls for his resignation. But that didn’t stop conservatives from trying to play the hypocrisy card. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Trump administration officials, conservative activists and far-right journalists claimed that the media and Democrats who often speak out against racism were trying to protect one of their own.

Trump’s Belated State Of The Union To Focus On ‘Choosing Greatness’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump heads into his State of the Union address dogged by bruising midterm losses and sinking poll numbers, wounded by a blistering standoff with Democrats.

Addressing the nation at the weakest point of his presidency, Trump will seek to use the ceremonial moment to pitch a unifying vision and reset relations with Democrats. Th...

A simple technology could secure the border for a fraction of the cost of a wall — but no one's talking about it

Amid the ongoing debate over whether to fund President Donald Trump's border wall to the tune of $5.7 billion, experts and industry leaders say there's a far more effective technology — at a fraction of the price. Fiber-optic cables have been previously tested at the US-Mexico border, and can detect a range of intrusions — from animals, to people, to vehicles — and determine their exact location. One Texas lawmaker, Rep. Will Hurd, has been arguing for years that stretching a fiber optic cable...

Delayed, not saved: Foxconn's Wisconsin "factory" announcement is a bid to help Trump save face

After announcing that, inevitably, it wasn't going to build an LCD factory in Wisconsin, and would instead use its $4.1 billion subsidy to build a modest R&D facility employing out-of-state skilled workers; Foxconn reversed itself and promised that the factory was back on. The factory is not back on. LCDs are pure commodities, among the lowest-margin components, and about to be made obsolete by OLEDs. There is zero business-case for building these outside of Asia-Pacific. It was a stunt, i...
