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...

Trump, Pelosi feud heats up again

WASHINGTON (AP) — She imperiled his State of the Union address. He denied her a plane to visit troops abroad.

Free food for furloughed workers

Chef Jose Andres — a Spanish-American who popularized the tapas concept in America — is no stranger to feeding those in need. He led a team of volunteers that served millions of meals to hungry Puerto Ricans after Hurricane Maria, and with the current partial government shutdown stretching into its fourth week, the philanthropic chef is at it again. Andres announced he would serve free sandwiches for lunch to furloughed federal employees in each of his Washington, DC, restaurants during the s...

'We want our pay!' furloughed U.S. workers shout at White House

"Stop the shutdown!" protesters shouted in the bitter cold at the union-organized demonstration that started at the AFL-CIO headquarters and ended in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, where they hoisted signs reading "Trump: End the Shutdown" and "Not a strike - we want to work." Some 800,000 federal government employees have been ordered to stay home or work without pay during the shutdown brought on by a standoff between Trump and Democrats in Congress over Trump's demand for $5.7 billion to...

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 uses eight-vehicle motorcade to travel 250 yards to greet George W. Bush

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump traversed a wide political chasm Tuesday evening when he personally welcomed George W. Bush, his occasional foil, to Blair House, the presidential guest quarters across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. But the actual distance was just 250 yards – a route Trump and his wife Melania traveled in the […]

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. U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte had previously declined Trump’s request to dismiss the case and had declined to allow Trump to appea...

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...

Time to put a bullet in the bullet train fiasco

Gov. Jerry Brown’s insane train is still chugging along at a million dollars a minute, soon to become Gov. Gavin Newsom’s crazy train with a new revised price tag $11 billion higher than the last astronomical price estimate published in February. As in 9 months ago. Million, billion, trillion, gazillion, who cares, right? Guys like me are forever bellyaching about deficits, government borrowing and spending and predicting the end of the world, yet, somehow, we stumble from one fiscal year to the...

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...

11 Political TV Shows That Thankfully Aren't Real

Intrigue! Pantsuits! Devilry behind closed doors! The occasional dose of Latin philosophizing! Politics as TV fodder is a tale as old as the late-20th century. Beginning in the '30s with Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Hollywood enjoyed skewering that powerful force on the other side of the country. The stories were all vaguely similar: An idealistic fellow (often a man) would venture to Washington, D.C., only to find himself corrupted by the promise of sweet, sweet power. There was All the King'...

Weekly Primer: Docs Show Trump Ordered Gov’t To Keep FBI Building Near His Hotel

Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson may have inadvertently spilled the beans on the White House’s attempt to help Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke avoid accountability for rule-breaking. On Friday, Carson sent a “fond farewell” email to department staff announcing that Trump administration political appointee Suzanne Israel Tufts — who in her role at HUD replaced the whistleblower who called out Carson’s since-cancelled $31,000 furniture order — would now take over as the Depar...

White nationalists drowned out by counter-protesters in Washington rally

A widely-condemned white nationalist rally in Washington drew fewer than two dozen supporters, and was drowned out by thousands of counter-protesters chanting "Nazis go home" and "No KKK in the USA". Organisers of the "Unite the Right 2" rally had obtained a permit for up to 400 far-right demonstrators to gather outside the White House. The event was intended to mark the first anniversary of a similar rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year when neo-Nazis paraded through the streets and Hea...

Native Lands: An Interactive Map Reveals the Indigenous Lands on Which Modern Nations Were Built

At that time there were many blank spaces on the earth, and when I saw one that looked particularly inviting on a map (but they all look that) I would put my finger on it and say, ‘When I grow up I will go there.’”                      —Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness In his post-WWII historical survey, The Story of Map...

Anyone want a great deal on a spa day at a luxury T**** hotel? ... Hello? Anyone? MAGA?

A certain high-profile luxury hotel in our nation's capital apparently can't live on stays by eager-to-ingratiate-themselves foreigners alone, so it's doing what lots of hotels do (through, frankly, not that many true luxury hotels): It's offering a discount offer through a travel aggregator website.In this case, it's a deal spotted by Washingtonian magazine's Amanda Whiting on TravelZoo for a "Luxe Spa Day on Pennsylvania Avenue" (big type) in a "Spa by Ivanka Trump" (small type).Gosh, where co...
