Steve King (R-IA) for his comments about white supremacy, according to The Hill and NBC. “Steve King’s comments were abhorrent,” she reportedly told the press outside the West Wing on Wednesday. “The Republican leadership, unlike Democrats, have actually taken action when their members have said outrageous and inappropriate things.” After King was quoted in The New York Times pondering why th...

Short Stories: Women in the Workplace

None In the past decade or so, the world of work has featured large on American TV shows and in movies — whether they're satirizing Silicon Valley, the advertising industry of the 1950s, or the White House. In its own way, the workplace novel has also been an enduring sub-genre. But, typically, mainstream narratives have been dominated by white male writers. Within this sub-genre, we have even more categories: the campus novel, the legal caper, the high finance thriller, the fashion chronicles...

Ivanka Will Not Be New Head Of World Bank, But Will Play Role In Selection

Contrary to recent rumors, Ivanka Trump will not be the new leader of the World Bank, according to the White House. But she will play a large role in selecting its new president. According to a Monday New York Times report, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin personally asked Ivanka to assist in the process. There is still reportedly some doubt as to whether she is sufficiently divested from her business interests to partake in U.S. economic decisions, as she still holds worldwide trademarks. [...

GOP Rep Likens FBI Probe Of Trump To A ‘Coup’: ‘Absolutely Disgraceful’

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) seized on a White House talking point — that reports of the FBI investigating whether President Trump was working for Russia prove Trump was right about the deep state — and took it a step further Monday: “that’s almost like a coup.” During an interview with Fox News on Monday, King called news of the probe “absolutely disgraceful.” “From what I’ve seen and heard, if this is true, what the FBI did is absolutely disgraceful,” King said. “They have been investigating the ...

'I never worked for Russia': Trump hits out at 'dirty cops' who launched probe after he sacked FBI chief

Donald Trump, the US president, declared on Monday that he has "never" worked for Russia as he hit out at reports that he was investigated by the FBI over alleged ties to the Kremlin.  The US president delivered a definitive rejection of claims that the FBI investigated whether he was acting on Russia's behalf when he sacked James Comey, the bureau's director, in 2017.  It came after he refused to say "no" when asked if he was working for Russia in a Saturday night interview, instead say...

Billionaire Beach Villain Vinod Khosla has a thought concerning Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Vinod Khosla is a Silicon Valley venture capitalist who chose to define his legacy through a spectacular legal battle to block access to the public part of a beach are he owns in California. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is the youngest woman ever elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, whose openly progressive positions (especially a proposal to tax rich people's incomes at 70% after the first $10,000,000 a year) have shocked conservatives into an all-consuming hysteria. Moreover, she's...
