A university faculty speaks its mind

Approximately 80% of the faculty of the George Washington School of Law, including several of its former Deans, signed an extremely strong statement criticizing William Barr.  To describe it as simply a "statement" is misleading, for it sets out an extensive bill of particulars lamenting the reality of William Barr as Attorney General.  What makes the statement so striking, though, is the institutional connection between George Washington and William Barr.  He received his law degree from that i...

Trump uses racist 'Kung Flu' slur against Asians again, was 'coronavirus' too many syllables?

He's not a well man, folks. On the day he gave this speech, 120,000 Americans have died of coronavirus. But he can't seem to say the word. Impeached and obviously unfit United States President Donald “Is it brain disease or Adderall?” Trump uses the term “Kung Flu” again, and says “COVID, COVID-19, COVID, I said what’s the 19.

White House stimulus letter is an official IRS tax document you need to save

Did you get your COVID-19 stimulus money, either as direct deposit, debit card or a check like this? If so, you also should have received a letter discussing the payment and amount. The IRS says you need to keep that letter in your tax files. Congress might be working on another round of COVID-19 economic relief payment (EIPs). I say might because although the House in mid-May approved the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act and its provisions for even mo...

Mulvaney Brushes Off Trump Criticism From Ex-Admin Officials: ‘Inside Beltway Kind Of Discussion’

Former acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney isn’t worried about President Trump’s re-election prospects in light of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s damning tell-all book recalling his experiences in the Trump administration. Mulvaney hopped on the Bolton bashing bandwagon during an interview on MSNBC Tuesday by criticizing the former national security adviser for being “tough to work with” and having an ego that is “too big to follow the President down any road.” Mulv...

Birx Privately Urges Guvs To Ramp Up Testing As Trump Attempts To Muzzle It

White House COVID-19 task force member Dr. Deborah Birx urged governors to increase testing for COVID-19 during a private call on Monday, even as President Donald Trump moves to pull the plug on federally funded local testing sites. “Hopefully I have left you with the impression that increased testing is good,” Birx told the governors, per the Daily Beast. “We would like to even see it even more.” The doctor stressed the importance of identifying asymptomatic COVID-19 cases, saying that doing...

Black Californians’ housing crisis, by the numbers

California’s housing crisis is nothing new for many black Californians. Systemic racism in public policy and the private housing market has long made finding a safe, stable and affordable home in the Golden State a more difficult prospect for its roughly 2.2 million black residents than for white people. The legacy of New Deal-era redlining — which deemed black neighborhoods undesirable for federally-backed mortgages — is demonstrably visible not only where black Californians live now but where ...

Trump’s latest immigration ban is bad news for US AI ambitions

America’s access to global talent has helped it stay ahead of China in the AI arms race. But that edge is being blunted by the Trump administration. Yesterday, the White House sacrificed another chunk of its advantage on the altar of nationalism, when President Trump announced the suspension of certain temporary work visas. Among them was the H-1B program for highly-skilled workers, which used largely by the tech sector. Trump argued the ban would help the economy recover from the coronavirus pa...

The Lincoln Project: Today's new ad features Trump and his 'slow the testing down' line

The Republicans behind The Lincoln Project are churning out anti-Trump ads on a daily basis, and their latest centers on the one scary truth that Trump shouted out at his failed Tulsa rally on Saturday: “When you do testing to that extent, you’re gonna find more people, you’re gonna find more cases. So I said to my people, 'slow the testing down, please.'” After his handlers tried to say he was just kidding, he corrected them today outside the White House: “I don’t kid," he told reporters w...
