  • NFL take-a-knee protests boil down to two liberal cities

    The NFL has taken a beating over players kneeling during the national anthem, but a closer examination shows that the protests are less a story of the league as a whole and more a tale of two liberal cities: San Francisco and Seattle. On any given Sunday, the vast majority of those refusing to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” play for the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, teams nestled in famously left-wing locales and led by owners who sought to keep Donald Trump out of the White House. That doesn’t include blips like Sept. 25, which saw nearly 200...

    Becker's Hospital Review ^ | November 10, 2017 | Kelly Gooch
    On Tuesday, Maine became the 32nd state to approve Medicaid expansion and the first to do so via referendum. But Republican Gov. Paul LePage is pushing back. In a statement released the day after the vote, the governor referenced costs associated with the initiative, saying taxpayers would be on the hook for "hundreds of millions of dollars." "The last time Maine experimented with Medicaid expansion in 2002 under then-Gov. Angus King, it created a $750 million debt to hospitals, resulted in massive budget shortfalls every year, did not reduce emergency room use, did not reduce the number of uninsured Mainers...

    Saudi Arabia launched military strikes against Yemen’s defense ministry in the capital city of Sana’a in the latest escalation in the conflict between the two Arab nations, witnesses told the French news agency AFP. It wasn’t immediately clear if the attacks were air or missile strikes, but they came following reports that Iran had manufactured the ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Shiite rebels toward the Saudi capital a week ago. Remnants of the missile bore “Iranian markings,” the top US Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday, backing the kingdom’s earlier allegations. Saudi Arabia long has accused Iran of...

    When the New York Times published its explosive investigation about Louis C.K.’s alleged history of sexual harassment on Thursday afternoon, it confirmed rumors that had been swirling around the comedian for years. In light of the first on-the-record interviews with women who described C.K.’s harassment — which, according to the Times, involved C.K. masturbating in front of, or on the phone with, women pursuing careers in comedy — some fans may have looked back at key moments in his work to search for on-camera signs of his off-camera indiscretions. A Timeline of the Louis C.K. Masturbation Allegations Certainly one of...

    TRENTON -- State Senate Republican leader Tom Kean Jr. on Thursday said he'd support an increase in the state's minimum wage in exchange for a middle class tax cut. And he said Gov.-elect Phil Murphy should dump his called-for "millionaire's tax" increase. Kean, R-Union, said he was willing to raise the state's minimum wage to a level that is "modern and fair," but stopped short of agreeing to the $15 per hour sought by Murphy.

And so the Drive-Bys have been focused, there is a sick and morbid curiosity they have over whether Trump will meet with Putin while they’re both in the same place. And of course you know what’s driving this. Trump and Putin colluded to steal the election. And so since that’s the foundation of everything they report on regarding Trump, since this happens to be a worldwide economic summit, Putin is there, but they have been keeping...
  • What’s Wrong with Jeff Sessions?

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    To start with the conclusion, President Trump is long overdue in firing his Attorney General Jeff Sessions and there are quite a few reasons for that. The thing is, Sessions has become a liability to Trump’s administration rather than an asset and, more than that, he’s become a liability to the United States. That’s why he needs to go, the sooner, the better. It is true that both Republicans and Democrats threatened the President they will not confirm a new AG provided Jeff Sessions is given the boot. However, Trump can name an interim AG for an undetermined period of...

    An attorney for Leigh Corfman, whose story of a sexual encounter with Roy Moore when he was 32 and she was 14, broke today, said Corfman stands by her story. Hoover attorney Eddie Sexton told AL.com that Corfman has wanted to publicly talk about the time in 1979 when Moore dated her, but never felt like it was the right time. "Her kids are out of the house now, grown, and I think she felt like it was the right time to do it," said Sexton. "I'm sure she was scared to death." Corfman had been talking with reporters from...

    Former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile told an audience at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on Thursday that Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi should no longer lead her party’s caucus in the House. “I don’t want the Dianne Feinsteins and the Nancy Pelosis of the world to leave the room, I want them to just scoot over, make room,” she said at an event for her new book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

    Kirsters Baish| One Breitbart writer just revealed new information about the DNC that came straight from Donna Brazile. This is just the tip of the iceberg, and if this information is true, this may very well be the end of the DNC. The Democrats’ plan of impeaching Trump isn’t looking too good. Stealth Jeff, an internet user, wrote a large series of numbered tweets. In these tweets, we are given information about what is really going on behind the curtain, and if these facts stand to be true, there are a lot of arrests to be made among the Democratic...

    Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne seems to be the personification of what the Columbia Journalism Review meant when its writer Jon Alsop noted on November 9 that Media too thirsty for a narrative shift on Trump. Alsop pointed out that the liberal media, desperate for a win against President Donald Trump, have latched onto last Tuesday's election results as confirmation of their urgent hopes. Perhaps none was more thirsty for such a narrative shift than laughably failed prognosticator E.J. Dionne as we shall see. First, Alsop revealed how this desperate thirst for a narrative shift has affected MSM coverage of the recent elections:

    What a difference 18 months can make. Last May, Jon Stewart sat down for a rare, long interview with former Obama adviser David Axelrod for his podcast The Axe Files in front of a live audience of students at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics. After a wide-ranging conversation that included Stewart’s assessment that Democrats had opened the door for Donald Trump by not governing effectively enough, a student stood up to ask him about some rumors surrounding Louis C.K., who had been his final guest on The Daily Show the previous summer. Knowing what we know now about...
