Pompeo Expands Trump Admin’s Ban On Aid To Overseas Abortion Providers

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday expanded the Trump administration’s ban on U.S. aid to groups that promote or provide abortions to include organizations that comply with the rules but give money to others that don’t. Pompeo also said the U.S. would cut some assistance to the Organization of America States because at least two of its agencies are allegedly lobbying for abortion availability in the Western Hemisphere. Pompeo said the administration was committed to pr...

What's wrong with blaming "information" for political chaos

David Perell's 13,000 word essay, "What the Hell is Going On?" presents a reassuring -- and contrarian -- view on how our current dysfunction in politics, media, and business has come to pass, drawing on orthodox economic theories about "information asymmetry" in a way that makes the whole thing seem like a kind of adjustment period between a middling old world and a fine new one. I think Perell is wrong. His theory omits the most salient, obvious explanation for what's going on (the creati...

Trump Says Theresa May ‘Didn’t Listen’ To His Brexit Negotiation Ideas

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Thursday sharply criticized Britain’s handling of negotiations over leaving the European Union, saying the talks have been bungled and that the wrenching debate was dividing the country. “I’m surprised at how badly it’s all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation,” he said. Trump, who holds himself up as a master deal-maker, said he gave Prime Minister Theresa May his ideas on how she could negotiate a successful deal for leaving the 28-member grou...

Former Dem Senator Who Authored Landmark Title IX Law Dies At 91

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Former U.S. Sen. Birch Bayh, who championed the federal law banning discrimination against women in college admissions and sports, died at his home Thursday at age 91. Bayh was surrounded by family at his home in Easton, Maryland, when he died shortly after midnight from pneumonia, his family said in a statement. His son, Evan, followed him into politics and became Indiana’s governor and a senator. The liberal Democrat had a back-slapping, humorous campaigning style that he...

Latino voting dreams not coming true for big parties

Both Democrats and Republicans have long harbored big dreams about Latino voters. Now, as California gets set for its first seemingly influential presidential primary in decades, the dreams of both parties may not be coming true. Here are their high hopes: Democrats in California and elsewhere want Latino voting rates to climb ever higher on the assumption those voters will always lean their way and guarantee victories next year and beyond. Republicans dream that Latinos will eventually shift th...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar tout taxation myths

Do you pay enough taxes? What is enough? When asked on “60 Minutes,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t seem to have a specific tax rate in mind, but then she said, “back in the ’60s … you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent.” Suddenly, 70 percent tax rates are a progressive plan, although Rep. Ilhan Omar added, “We’ve had it as high as 90 percent.” She’s right. That was the top tax rate when I was a kid, and today, many Democrats say if we’d just raise rates on rich people, government w...

Ronald Reagan, racist? Ocasio-Cortez didn’t say that — but the controversy reveals a lot about how Americans discuss race

Regarding the racism debate, difference between left and right is simple but stark. The left believes policies — and the tactics used to promote them — can be racist. In contrast, the right seems to believe, or to choose to believe, that only people can be racist.

Hard truths about deinstitutionalization, then and now

Ronald Reagan emptied the psychiatric hospitals and Jerry Brown emptied the prisons, or so some people say. Although neither statement is completely true, there are elements of harsh reality in both. And they are connected. Reagan and Brown, two of the most consequential governors ever in California, led the state during two of the most well intended but poorly executed movements in this state’s history. The first was the de-institutionalization of the mentally ill starting in the 1960’s. The mo...

Kasich: It's time for Republicans in Congress to put country over party

During my 18 years as a member of Congress -- not so long ago -- my colleagues and I didn't robotically toe the line with the President. Republicans didn't vote in lockstep with Republican presidents, not even Ronald Reagan. And Democrats departed from their party's president when they thought it was the right thing to do. We took party loyalty seriously, but we gave even greater weight to principle.

WaPo: In Talk With Pence, Cheney Compared Trump’s Foreign Policy to Obama’s

In a recent “off-the-record” discussion with Vice President Mike Pence, former Vice President Dick Cheney compared President Donald Trump’s foreign policy to former President Barack Obama’s, according to a transcript obtained by The Washington Post. At one point during what the Post described as a “vigorous back-and-forth,” which took place during a March 9 retreat in Sea Island, Georgia that was hosted by the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute, Pence remarked: “Well, who wrote the...

Despite pressure, Venezuela's Maduro seems set on staying put: U.S. envoy

Elliott Abrams, who served in the administrations of both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, said any negotiated solution would need to be reached among Venezuelans, and that the United States could help by lifting or easing U.S. sanctions and travel restrictions once Maduro agreed to go. Abrams, however, played down any possibility that the Venezuelan president was ready to talk about his exit. "From everything we have seen, Maduro's tactic is to stay put," Abrams said in an interview on Frida...

In the News: Not Ready to Retire? Graypreneurs Making Big Impact on US Economy

This week, we learned that greypreneurs (probably should call them graypreneurs here in the U.S.) are a thing. And it’s an increasingly popular economic trend. As you might guess, this portmanteau simply means entrepreneurs with a little mileage on their engine. It seems this boost to the American economy has created a ripe environment for people who might otherwise retire or start thinking about retiring. Instead, they’re starting businesses and finding great success at it. Check out some of t...

Ocasio-Cortez attacks sentence handed to Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort: 'The system is broken'

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has attacked the “broken” US justice system after Donald Trump’s former campaign manager was jailed for 47 months for a $6m (£4.5m) tax and bank fraud. The New York Congresswoman said Paul Manafort’s punishment – well below the 19 to 24 years sought by prosecutors – was an example of how rich people were treated differently in court. The sentencing by federal judge TS Ellis, who was appointed by Ronald Reagan, prompted lawyers and politicians to compare it to other cas...

Trump’s Reagan Moment — and Ours

The verdict is in on Trump’s refusal to strike a deal with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un at their summit in Hanoi last week — or more precisely two verdicts are in. The media and the usual Trump critics have pronounced the summit a disaster: “How the Trump-Kim Summit Failed: Big Threats, Big Egos, Bad Bets,” is how the New York Times portrayed it. The other verdict comes from Trump admirers who have compared Trump’s performance with Ronald Reagan’s at Reykjavík in 1986, when Reagan walked away from ...

LA County has an opportunity for quality community mental health

The Board of Supervisors voted on February 12 against building a new “Mental Health Jail” to replace Men’s Central Jail, instead opting to build a large new psychiatric hospital.   A 2014 national study concluded that there are ten times as many individuals suffering from serious mental illness behind bars as there are in psychiatric hospitals. I applaud the Board taking the first step in ameliorating that situation in Los Angeles.  Henceforth mental health clinicians, not the Sheriff, will be i...
