    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's policy of taking immigrant children from their parents at the southern border may have been designed to push Democrats to the negotiating table in Congress — but it could end up costing Republican lawmakers. "Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change!" Trump wrote on Twitter Saturday. "This is why we need more Republicans elected in November." But the policy, which has separated some 2,000 children from their parents in just six weeks, could have the opposite effect as anxious Republican lawmakers fear...

    In Germany, the case of a young Muslim refugee charged with the rape and murder of a teenage girl has captured media attention and rocked Germany’s Jewish community: The victim, 14-year-old Susanna Feldman, was Jewish. Missing since May 22, the girl’s body was found June 6 buried in a shallow grave near her hometown of Mainz. The case has rattled Germany, which is beset with worries about crime emanating from the large Muslim refugee population — many of whom are young, single men, frustrated and aimless. Before it appeared that anti-Semitism likely played no role in this crime, the...

    Hours after the White House pummeled comedienne Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a 'feckless c***' on national television Wednesday night, the ''Full Frontal' host complained at an awards dinner that she shouldn't have been criticized at all.

Reporters were banned from covering the event in person, but DailyMail.com obtained a transcript of her brief remarks. She said that instead of venting their outrage...

    The plane landed safely at San Jose Mineta International Airport, about 50 miles south of San Francisco. The airline says the passenger accused of smoking was turned over to law enforcement. The remaining 32 passengers were placed on other aircraft to continue their trips. Passengers reported smelling smoke, and one said he smelled marijuana. “It looked like that someone needed to smoke a joint on a plane, and he went into the bathroom, smoked his blunt, and set off the fire alarm,” passenger Jonathan Burkes said.

  • Is #MeToo Backlash Hurting Women’s Opportunities in Finance?

    03/25/2018 6:07:02 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 41 replies
    When my mother graduated from college in 1972, she interviewed at an investment bank where a manager told her that for certain positions, women were interviewed but never hired. Even in the late 1980s, she went on interviews with headhunters who would explicitly tell her, “They want to interview a woman,” with the emphasis on “interview”— as in, not hire. Through the decades, as she’s climbed the ranks to become a CFO of publicly traded company, I’ve often told these stories to show how much more opportunity exists in the workplace today. In the aftermath of the MeToo movement around...

    The Army's top officer said Wednesday that the service had "rescinded" a controversial memo permitting people with a history of severe mental illness to seek waivers allowing them to join up. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told reporters the memo was "unauthorized" and its author did not have the authority to change the Army's recruitment policy. "It was rescinded last night," Milley said of the memo, which was dated Sept. 7 of this year and initially reported by USA Today on Sunday.

    The Washington Post editorial board slammed the Latino Victory Fund’s “vile” and “despicable” ad and chided Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam for not calling out that ad featuring an Ed Gillespie supporter chasing down minority children. The Latino Victory Fund pulled their ad in the wake of a terrorist attack in New York City that featured a man running several people over with a truck and reportedly shouting “Allahu Akbar.” Cristobal Alex, the president of the Latino Victory Fund, said in a statement to Breitbart News, “We knew our ad would ruffle feathers. We held a mirror to the...

    Sports teams ask a lot of their fans, especially in places like Green Bay. Where, depending on the time of year, a fan could get hypothermia while just sitting in his seat. However, one recent request the team has made of the Pack faithful has left fans feeling a little hot. The Packers players, led by their quarterback Aaron Rodgers, issued a call to their fans to join them in interlocking arms during the national anthem. However, some fans have not taken kindly to the request. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Packers Director of Public Affairs, Aaron Popkey, says...

    Comedian Steve Harvey said he ultimately regrets his decision to meet with President Trump, saying he should have listened to his wife's advice not to attend the meeting. "Here's the crazy thing: I'm supposed to be on a boat for my 60th birthday, so my wife says, 'Steve, just take off [and skip the meeting]. You'll meet with him some other time.' God, I should've listened," Harvey told The Hollywood Reporter. Harvey, who interviewed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the campaign, met with Trump in January at Trump Tower before his inauguration. Former President Barack Obama's transition team facilitated...

    Nancy Pelosi’s problem inside the Democratic caucus isn’t going away – as a new generation of lawmakers starts to openly question her leadership in the wake of consecutive special election losses. The long-reigning House Democratic leader remained defiant at a press conference Thursday, saying she thrives on “competition” and touting her skills as a “master legislator” and “politically astute leader.” But inside the rank-and-file, members are getting restless and the call for Pelosi to depart is louder than ever.

    WASHINGTON -- By Wednesday afternoon comedian Kathy Griffin had apologized for posing for a photo with what looked like the blood-soaked decapitated head of President Donald Trump. "I went too far," she said in a contrite follow-up video. "I sincerely apologize." But it was too late. Squatty Potty CEO Bobby Edwards announced that it was suspending an ad campaign featuring Griffin as the Utah-based bathroom-stool company saw the stunt as "deeply inappropriate" and "contrary to the core values our company stands for." CNN also announced it was terminating Griffin's appearance its New Year's show, after earlier criticizing the photos as...

    Enough is enough. Five years ago, this space featured two back-to-back columns titled “Rally for Rush” and “The Plot to Get Rush.” The focus was a serious attempt by the far-left, race-card playing site Media Matters to force Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves by pressuring his sponsors to cease their connection with the show. The attack on Rush (over the Sandra Fluke incident) would fail — and it failed for one big reason. That would be Rush’s audience, which did in fact rally for Rush by directly contacting the handful of withdrawing sponsors to let them know that as customers...
