Meadows' birther past debunks his take on race

A white man who helped spread the racist conspiracy that Barack Obama wasn't really American put a black woman on display, as though at a slave auction, to defend the white man who did more than anyone else to take birtherism national against legitimate charges of racism. Then, that white man reacted with outrage and hurt when a woman of color called him out for what he had done.

An utterly bizarre Black History Month

The end of February also marked the end of an utterly bizarre Black History Month. It brought us what for many was a long-awaited conversation addressing the ways in which America's discussion of racial injustice has regressed by decades. In a country where Barack Obama was President, public discourse is still dominated by enduring, pernicious tropes such as blackface, cotton, and "some of my best friends are black." Notably, the blackface and cotton episodes occurred in the same state, and fe...

White House drafts guidelines for panel questioning climate threat to security

The National Security Council at the White House has been considering the formation of a climate panel that would likely be headed by William Happer, a retired Princeton University physics professor who says greenhouse gas emissions are good for the planet and who lacks a background in climate science. Happer said on CNBC in 2014 that the main greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, has been demonized, "just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler." The NSC held a meeting on Feb. 22 to dis...

Pete Buttigieg comes to Claremont to campaign for president – and talk about big ideas

Cheers greeted Pete Buttigieg when he took the stage at Scripps College in Claremont. “Wow! It’s like you’re (polling) at 2 percent,” quipped political journalist Peter Hamby, who interviewed Buttigieg in an hourlong public event Wednesday night, Feb. 27.

The mayor of South Bend, Indiana (population 102,000), Buttigieg wasn’t even listed in a November poll of Democratic presidential candidates conducted by POLITICO/Morning Consult. “You start from zero and...

Analysis: One lie by Cohen could invalidate his entire testimony

In order for Michael Cohen to be seen as a credible and reliable source on Donald Trump's business dealings, political activities and character -- both in and out of the White House -- the President's former fixer must be viewed as a changed man, someone who lied, yes, but has now seen the light and spent his House hearing on Tuesday telling the truth and nothing but the truth about his former boss.

NYT: Trump Ordered Top-Secret Clearance For Kushner Despite Others’ Concerns

President Donald Trump personally ordered that his son-in-law Jared Kushner be granted a top-secret security clearance last year, The New York Times reported Thursday, citing four unnamed “people briefed on the matter.” The report contradicted claims by Trump himself, Kushner’s lawyer, Ivanka Trump and others that Kushner had received the clearance as a result of the normal process, and without Trump’s help. Though the President does have the authority to grant clearances, he did so in this c...

Trump and his family could be forced to testify after explosive Cohen hearing: 'They will hear from the committee'

Donald Trump and several of his family members could soon find themselves testifying before Congress about the president’s alleged lies and criminal conduct, if the Democratic-controlled House Oversight Committee gets its way. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the committee tasked with investigating Mr Trump’s financial dealings, ties to Russia and a slate of other scandals plaguing the White House since his 2016 election, warned the first family and others close to the president they “can e...

Ivanka Trump Is Acting. AOC Is Not. That's A Key Difference In Their Body Language.

The millionaire who used to hang out with Paris Hilton in St. Tropez says absolutely not; the former bartender from the Bronx who lost her father to cancer and whose family went into debt, their house on the verge of foreclosure, says absolutely yes.In a recent interview w...

North Korea Disputes Trump Account Of Why Summit Collapsed

Trump, who was on his way back to Washington on Thursday, said before leaving Hanoi that the talks broke down because Kim insisted that all the punishing sanctions the U.S. has imposed on Pyongyang be lifted ...
