Tough-On-Crime Trump AG Pick Will Insist He Backs Sentencing Reform

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s pick to be attorney general will assure lawmakers he supports a recent criminal justice overhaul that eases federal sentencing rules, even though he pushed tough-on-crime policies for decades, a person close to the confirmation process told The Associated Press. William Barr is likely to face questions during his confirmation hearing Tuesday about his rhetoric during and after his first stint as attorney general in the early 1990s. At the time, Barr a...

Best Longform of 2018

If you’re not a regular reader of my site, please do me a favor and subscribe to the email (it comes infrequently — whenever I add a post here). I write about business, technology, history, mental models (a lot of those), and all the random interesting stuff I’m reading about. It’s a hodge-podge and I hope you’ll enjoy. At the beginning of last year I decided I was going to spend more time reading books in 2018. I set myself a goal of 30 on Goodreads and blew past that by year end. While it f...

Reid Reflects On Trump: ‘He Is Not Immoral But Is Amoral,’ ‘No Conscience’

From his home in Nevada, former Senate leader Harry Reid (D-NV) described President Donald Trump and the “chaos” his administration has brought in a New York Times magazine profile published Wednesday. “Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral. Amoral is when you shoot someone in the head, it doesn’t make a difference. No conscience,” he said. “I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had. We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second...

Harry Reid "does not have long to live. I hate to be so abrupt about this, but Reid probably would not mind."

Writes Mark Leibovich in "Harry Reid Has a Few Words for Washington/The former Senate majority leader on President Trump and Senator Chuck Schumer, and on why he doesn’t regret ending the filibuster for judicial appointment" (NYT Magazine).In May, he went in for a colonoscopy, the results of which caused concern among his doctors. This led to an M.R.I. that turned up a lesion on Reid’s pancreas: cancer. Reid’s subdued and slightly cold manner, and aggressive anticharisma, have always made him an...

How Harry Reid’s Democratic Machine Swept Nevada: A Model For Other States

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Harry Reid may no longer lead Senate Democrats in Washington, but the political machine he built in Nevada has Republicans on the run. Democrats romped up and down the state in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, ousting Republican Sen. Dean Heller, winning races for governor and lieutenant governor, and expanding their state legislative majorities. The shellacking was 15 years in the making, the culmination of a long-term plan to shift a battleground into the Democratic column. De...

Reid: ‘I Made A Mistake’ Opposing Birthright Citizenship, Trump ‘Profoundly Wrong’

Former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid told President Donald Trump that he “can tweet whatever he wants while he sits around watching TV, but he is profoundly wrong” about his insistence that birthright citizenship ought to be limited to the children of U.S. citizens, rather than applying to everyone born in the United States. The strong consensus of constitutional scholars and precedent is that birthright citizenship is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Trump claimed...

Trump cites Harry Reid to back his position on birthright. He’s 25 years out of date.

Harry Reid on Wednesday responded to President Trump after the commander in chief used a speech the former Democratic senator from Nevada made 25 years ago to justify a push to end birthright citizenship.

Democrats Look To Grind Out A Must-Win Against Their Top Senate Target

Sen. Dean Heller’s (R-NV) seat has been at the top of every Democrat’s holiday wishlist for the past two years. But he’s not in a giving mood. Heller remains very much in the fight against Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) in their high-stakes campaign, Democrats’ best chance of defeating a GOP Senate incumbent and a must-win for the party as they seek to gain and not lose ground in the Senate. National Democrats have been banking on a win in the state for months to have any hope at shrinking Republicans’...

Koch and Cuomo brothers as American as mom, apple pie and cannoli

Although most Americans wouldn’t know the Koch brothers if they passed them on the street, they might recognize the duo of Andrew and Chris Cuomo, who get more TV air time. But would you ask for their autographs or heckle them? Do you consider either set of brothers un-American? Those are not trick questions. They are a sign of the times. And the answer likely depends on whether you watch cable news, and if so, which network. In recent weeks, the Kochs have found themselves under verbal assault ...

Feinstein's driver of 20 years a Chinese spy

You have got to be ****ting me, you can't write this. Harry Reid used the BLM to try to push the Bundys out so his son Rory Reid could develop solar power with his Chinese partners, what's the chance the driver had a part in that?

McConnell’s Legacy Hinges On Reshaping The Courts Under Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was upbeat the night after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he was retiring from the Supreme Court. The Kentucky Republican had already led the Senate in confirming more circuit court judges in the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency than in that of any other president in history. Now McConnell had the chance to confirm a second Supreme Court justice, a thrilling prospect for his party. More than any other accomplishment, including th...

Trump Grants Posthumous Pardon To Boxing Heavyweight Jack Johnson

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Thursday granted a rare posthumous pardon to boxing’s first black heavyweight champion, clearing Jack Johnson’s name more than 100 years after what many see as his racially-charged conviction. “It’s my honor to do it. It’s about time,” Trump said during an Oval Office ceremony, where he was joined by boxer Lennox Lewis and actor Sylvester Stallone, who has drawn awareness to Johnson’s cause. Trump said Johnson had served 10 months in prison for what ma...

The US military released a study on time travel and warp drives — here’s what a theoretical physicist thinks of it

The US Department of Defense funded a series of studies on advanced aerospace technologies, including warp drives. The studies came out of a program that also funded research into UFO sightings. One report describes the possibility of using dark energy to warp space and effectively travel faster than light. However, a theoretical physicist says there's "zero chance that anyone within our lifetimes or the next 1,000 years" will see it happen. Sometime after August 2008, the US Department of D...
