This Week: Acting Pentagon Chief’s Alleged Pro-Boeing Bias Gets New Attention

The Pentagon’s inspector general is looking into allegations that acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, who spent more than 30 years at Boeing before joining the Trump administration, improperly boosted the company as a government official. The investigation came in response to a complaint from the independent watchdog group CREW, which in turn cited a January report from Politico that Shanahan’s remarks as a government employee had “fuel[ed] questions about whether he harbors an unfair ...

Beto O’Rourke Dials Back Medicare-For-All Talk

From Forbes "In his response, O’Rourke indicated it’s going to take time and require bipartisan support to expand Medicare." https://www.forbes.com/sites/bruceja.../#58c32c3d2427 Translation: He is not serious about real reform. He is backpedalling because he anticipates a democratic victory in 2020 and the last thing a democrat wants is to win an election and have to fulfill an empty campaign promise. So he is moderating his tone well ahead of a win.

Why most pro athletes — including Mike Trout — are worth every penny of their big money salaries

Angels center fielder Mike Trout has succeeded as a low-key player in a low-key market, and he obviously has decided the stability and the lifestyle were worth agreeing to a 12-year, $426.5 million deal now and staying in Orange County, rather than waiting for 2020 and shooting for a $500 million-plus contract. (Photo by Kyusung Gong, Orange County Register/SCNG) Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons is greeted by teammate Mike Trout as he returns to the dugout after hitting a home run in a 2017...

Don’t let ‘crony capitalist’ agencies return to California cities

One of former Gov. Jerry Brown’s crowning achievements came in 2011 when, in the midst of a budget crisis, he spearheaded the effort to shutter California’s controversial redevelopment agencies. They epitomized “crony capitalism” by giving local planning czars the power to use eminent domain on behalf of politically connected developers — and by creating a slush fund to lavish public dollars on projects that were hatched in City Hall. Redevelopment was created in the 1940s as a tool to combat ur...

Let’s Talk About the Self-Made Billionaire Kylie Jenner

Last week Forbes published what has become its second annual clickbait attempt. It was clearly success and I’m upset with myself for continuing to give them attention, even if it’s negative attention. Trust me though, there’s a good reason I’m writing about this. Of course, I’m talking about how Forbes is labeling Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made billionaire. I think most people look at “self-made billionaire” and laugh for reasons that I hope are obvious. Her sister, Kim Kardashian, a...
