Nancy Pelosi Has Stepped Into The Role Of Supporter-In-Chief Of The Arts

Peter Marks: “In the absence of a White House that welcomes the nation’s preeminent composers, painters, scholars and singers to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — and let’s face it, many of them would probably say no thanks — Pelosi seems more and more inclined to cast herself as the ceremonial head of state for the arts.” – Washington Post

Word of the week: Invasion

On March 15, a gunman killed at least 50 people and injured another 50 as they gathered in two Christchurch mosques. Minutes before the attacks, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had been emailed a 74-page document, variously called a “manifesto” and a “screed,” purported to have been written by the gunman. In it, the man – a 28-year-old Australian living in New Zealand – denounced immigrants as “invaders.” Hours later, Donald Trump held a ceremony at the White House to mark the firs...

Changing of the Guard

With the news that Matt Carr is leaving his post as the Executive Director of the Algae Biomass Organization, it’s beginning to feel like a real changing of the guard is taking place on the watchtowers that surround and advanced the bioeconomy. It was only a few months ago that long-time RFA CEO Bob Dinneen stepped into an emeritus role as a senior advisor and Geoff Cooper was appointed RFA’s new CEO. And some time next month Brent Erickson will give up his role as the head of BIO’s Industrial ...

Jeffries Explains Calling Trump ‘Grand Wizard Of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue’

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) somewhat softened his calling President Donald Trump the “grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” on Wednesday, though he maintained that he does not regret his statement and that Trump has a track record of offensive actions. “With respect to the comments of a few days ago, we’ve got to have an opportunity for at least one day a year to have a candid, if sometimes uncomfortable, conversation about race,” Jeffries told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota after making the comme...

Women’s March Returns To DC, Other Cities

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Women’s March returned to Washington on Saturday and found itself coping with an ideological split and an abbreviated route due to the government shutdown. The original march in 2017, the day after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, drew hundreds of thousands of people. The exact size of the turnout remains subject to a politically charged debate, but it’s generally regarded as the largest Washington protest since the Vietnam era. Organizer this year submitted a perm...

President Bush and the tricky politics of death

They came to praise and bury Caesar. Well, not exactly Caesar, but for a few years, like Caesar, the most powerful man in the world. George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of the United States, is dead and now buried in the soil of his adopted home state of Texas. A political man was given a political funeral, no big surprise. When a musician dies there’s music. A comic’s last rights includes some laughs. So, inevitably, there were politics underscoring Poppa Bush’s funeral. But 41’s sen...

Trump Tries To Block Discovery In Emoluments Case

The Justice Department is trying to prevent state attorneys general from beginning the discovery process against President Donald Trump in one of the pending emoluments lawsuits against him. In a late Nov. 30 filing in the case, DOJ attorneys told a federal court in Maryland that discovery in the case should not proceed until appeals in the case can be heard.

Friends Or Foes? Or Both? Inside The Complex Pelosi-Trump Relationship

WASHINGTON (AP) — They haven’t spoken in days, not since President Donald Trump called to congratulate Nancy Pelosi on Democrats’ election night win. But they don’t really need to. Trump and Pelosi go way back, from the time she first showed up at Trump Tower fundraising for the Democrats long before he would become president or she the House speaker. Two big-name heirs to big-city honchos — Trump and Pelosi each had fathers who were political power players in their home towns — they’ve rubbed e...

This Week: Threat Of A New Indictment Hangs Over White House

With the midterm elections firmly in the rearview, the prospect of an indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is again hanging over the White House. President Trump is reportedly lashing out behind closed doors — and, also, in full view of the entire world. In Thursday’s master class in projection, Trump tweeted that the investigation is “a total mess,” run by “screaming and shouting” people who are “highly conflicted.” Trump falsely said that Mueller, a George W. Bush appointee, “...

Democrats retake House. Next move: Trump's tax returns

This photo via Donald J. Trump's Twitter account is the closest we've gotten to seeing his tax returns.  That could change, though, now that the House flipped to Democratic control in the midterm election. Even before it was official that Democrats had wrested House control from the GOP in yesterday's midterm elections, Donald J. Trump's taxes were once again a target. Votes were still being counted and, on the West Coast cast, when some on the House tax-writing committee announced that t...
