Michelle Obama's Facialist Spills All Her Skin-Care Secrets

We don't know where Michelle Obama is right this very moment, or what she's doing, but we do know one thing: She is glowing. We say this confidently because, over the past few years (most notably since leaving the White House) the former FLOTUS has sported an omnipresent, lit-from-within radiance that'd make the women in a Vermeer painting jealous.While a devotion to a healthy lifestyle is partly to thank, Mrs. Obama's glow also has a secret weapon: Jennifer Brodeur, the Montreal-based "skin gu...

The record-breaking government shutdown is putting the US at risk of a major cyberattack

Workers deemed essential are still in place, but the absence of so many others could still leave the US at risk.

Power to the people – could a citizens’ assembly solve the Brexit crisis?

"The Clemency Process Is Broken. Trump Can Fix It."

The title of this post is the title of this notable new Atlantic commentary authored by Rachel Barkow, Mark Holden and Mark Osler.  Here are excerpts: It took six years of intense wrangling to get the First Step Act passed. Clemency reform, however, requires the action of only one man. The president can act alone to fix what Congress did not. ​Even the First Step Act’s primary nemesis, Republican Senator Tom Cotton, has acknowledged a role for clemency, saying as part of his attack on the legis...

DACA recipients being allowed to travel outside U.S. was stopped by Trump. Now they want it back

His mother was dying and he was desperate. So Dario Guerrero Meneses took her to Mexico for an experimental treatment. Guerrero, a DACA recipient, had applied for permission to leave the U.S., but, eager to save his mother, didn’t wait for the answer. That move cost the Long Beach resident, then a student at Harvard University, the immigration status that gave him temporary relief from the fear of deportation.

Trump Mindful Of Optics As He Decides Which Trips To Take During Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vacation jaunts and hobnobbing with global elites at a Swiss ski resort are out for President Donald Trump. Visits with troops and farmers are OK.

He visited with U.S. troops stationed at a military base in western Iraq the day after Christmas and flew to the U.S.-Mexico border in southern Texas last week to try to buttress his argument for...

A sensible compromise is needed on Dreamers and border security

In 1858, Abraham Lincoln famously warned, “A house divided against itself cannot stand… half slave and half free… It will become all one thing or all the other.” In 2019, Americans of all political persuasions must come to grips with a similar reality; this country cannot endure permanently half legal and half illegal. We either believe in the sovereignty of our borders or we don’t. If we chose the latter over the former, we will punt away our birthright and America will be a nation in name only...

GOP rejected Obama’s executive reach but accepts Trump’s

By LISA MASCARO | AP Congressional Correspondent WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama stunned Republicans when he bypassed Congress and — relying on what he called his pen and his phone — used executive powers to enact his agenda, including protecting millions of young immigrants from deportation. Now, with President Donald Trump proposing an even more dramatic end-run around Congress to build his promised border wall with Mexico, many Republicans are uneasily cheering him on.

An Open Letter to Kim Kardashian

Dear Kim, I need your help. I am impressed that a reality television star, like you, with star status as big as the President’s (I mean HUGE), can walk into the White House and bend the President’s ear. Thomas Rainer cannot. And that’s a shame.  Rainer, a landscape architect, author and teacher, lives and breathes reality. He loves gardens, nature and clean air, but he doesn’t have a television show or a cosmetics line.
