    Janet Yellen, whose last day at the Fed was Friday, told CBS that stock market valuations are "high," though she's not sure if they're in a bubble. The comments came amid an aggressive market sell-off that saw the Dow industrials lose 666 points Friday. Yellen has ended a 14-year career at the Fed, the last four as chair. ...

  • Dick Durbin: Trump holding Dreamers 'hostage' with immigration plan (Offer Rejected)

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 25, 2018 | Pete Kasperowicz
    Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., a key senator in the talks to find an immigration deal, came out against President Trump's proposal for a grand bargain, in large part because it would curb legal immigration. "Dreamers should not be held hostage to President Trump's crusade to tear families apart and waste billions of American tax dollars on an ineffective wall," Durbin said in a statement. Trump's plan would put 1.8 million immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children on a decade-long path to citizenship. But that comes at a high price for Democrats, as he also wants...

    We’re just days away from a government shutdown and Democrats are still attempting to write the rules, despite being in the minority. Back in September, President Trump ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program from the executive branch and kicked it over to Congress where it belongs. “Congress, get ready to do your job — DACA!” he tweeted. From the beginning, when President Obama unconstitutionally implemented the program, the protections for those brought into America illegally by their parents were temporary. After all, the “D” in DACA stands for “deferred” and the courts ruled the issue can’t be implemented solely...

    Former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell thinks that intelligence agencies were too harsh to Trump during the campaign and presidential transition, according to an interview released Monday. Morell, who left the CIA in 2013 after serving as its acting director twice, endorsed Hillary Clinton in an August 2016 New York Times op-ed. Politico’s Susan Glassner asked Morell if getting involved was a mistake and the former CIA official said that it wasn’t, but that “there were downsides to it that I didn’t think about at the time.” “I was concerned about what is the impact it would have on the...

    On Friday, Michael Flynn plead guilty to lying to FBI agents about making contact with Russian Ambassador Kislyak during the transition period. CNBC reported: Specifically, Flynn is accused of falsely claiming that he had not asked Russia’s ambassador to the United States last Dec. 29 “to refrain from escalating the situation in response to sanctions that the United States had imposed against Russia that same day.” Flynn also allegedly lied by telling the FBI “he did not recall the Russian Ambassador subsequently telling him that Russia had chosen to moderate its response to those sanctions as a result of his...

    Following a national surge of sexual assault allegations, the Senate passed a resolution Thursday mandating sexual harassment prevention training for all employees of the Senate, including senators. The proposal — introduced by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minnesota, and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and co-sponsored by several other Republicans and Democrats — passed unanimously, CBS reported. Klobuchar said there is widespread support for the resolution, though longer-serving senators had a few complaints. "(They say) 'Well, I've been here a long time and I've never done anything wrong,'" Klobuchar told NPR. "And I go, 'I'm sure that's true, we just think everyone should...

    An Alabama candidate for the US Senate is strongly denying allegations that he sexually abused a 14-year-old girl. Roy Moore, a Republican firebrand, said claims that he preyed on a teenager while he was a 32-year-old prosecutor were "completely false". Leigh Corfman and three other women say Mr Moore made sexual advances on them when they were between the ages of 14 and 18, the Washington Post reports. The top Senate Republican said Mr Moore must step aside if the claims are true. Mr Moore, who is now 70, said in a statement to the Post: "These allegations are completely...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden compared President Donald Trump to a “charlatan” who preys on the fears of middle-class Americans and said the nation’s leader should “grow up” and stop using social media to incite North Korea.

  • House Republicans shy away from action on ‘bump stocks,’ hoping the ATF deals with it(Ryan punts)

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan backed away Wednesday from legislative action to ban “bump stocks,” the device a mass shooter used in Las Vegas earlier this month to create machine-gun-like rapid fire from his legal semiautomatic rifle, killing 58. Instead, Ryan and many of his fellow House Republicans hope the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will act administratively to outlaw the devices, which the agency ruled legal in 2010. ... “We think the regulatory fix is the smartest, quickest fix, and then, frankly, we’d like to know how it happened in the first place,” Ryan (Wis.) told...
  • Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo Introduces Gun Control Bill for Bump Stocks (Goes beyond bump stocks)

    Breitbart ^ | Oct 10, 2017 | AWR Hawkin
    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) put forward a gun control bill Tuesday designed to ban the manufacture, sale, or possession of bump stock accessories in the United States. Breitbart News reported that Barack Obama’s ATF approved bump stocks for sale because they are accessories, not conversion devices. In other words, they do not convert a semiautomatic into an automatic. Curbelo gets around this with legislation that bans accessories that “increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic 16 rifle but [do] not convert” it into an automatic. ... Curbelo’s bill, which is yet to be titled, focuses on accessories that speed...

    A Nerf gun battle at the Air Force Academy was reported as shots fired, setting off a campuswide panic Friday night that prompted a lockdown and left cadets huddled under their dorm room desks and some texting their parents goodbye. Officials at the school say the false alarm, which is under investigation, drove a furor on social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and Yikyak, which turned a minor incident into the "War of the Worlds." Several sources at the academy say the fuse was lit by an innocent battle with Nerf guns at the academy's preparatory school that was reported...
