    Seven Labour lawmakers quit on Monday over leader Jeremy Corbyn’s approach to Brexit and a row over anti-Semitism, saying Britain’s main opposition party had been “hijacked by the machine politics of the hard left”. In a direct challenge to Corbyn, the seven centrist MPs said they were courting others from across parliament to join their group, saying “enough is enough” in keeping silent over their doubts about the Labour leader’s fitness for office. United by a desire for a second referendum on Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, now that the likely terms of the divorce are known, they...

    MUNICH (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence rebuked European powers over Iran and Venezuela on Saturday in a renewed attack on Washington’s traditional allies, rejecting a call by Germany’s chancellor to include Russia in global cooperation efforts. In speeches and in private talks at the Munich Security Conference, Pence and Chancellor Angela Merkel laid out competing visions for how the West should address world crises. ...

    The independent student newspaper at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, published an op-ed in which the student author slammed conservative ideas, saying they "are not equal to liberal and left ideas." The piece, titled "It's OK that conservatives don't feel welcome," appeared in the "Student Life" paper. The op-ed's author explained that conservative ideas don't "deserve equal consideration to that afforded liberal and left ideas." "There is no legitimate argument for supporting Donald Trump and his allies, at least not one that holds up in any academic community worth its salt," the author wrote. "But we shouldn’t create an...

    A group of winter-sports athletes and the world’s biggest snowboard maker want the president of the International Ski Federation to resign after he spoke of “so-called climate change” and said he would rather deal with dictators than argue with environmentalists. The climate advocacy group Protect Our Winters sent an open letter Friday urging 75-year-old Gian-Franco Kasper to step aside. In an interview with the Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, Kasper said “dictators can organize (big) events … without asking the people’s permission” and that “from the business side, I say: I just want to go to dictatorships; I do not want to...

O’Rourke and local leaders say Trump’s facts are wrong and walls are irrelevant. …

    CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” snuck another anti-Trump message into the popular show’s credits on Thursday night, taking aim at press secretary Sarah Sanders’ appearance and Christian faith. “God told me he hasn't spoken to Sarah Sanders since she was fourteen years old and praying for her skin to clear up. I have no reason to doubt Him,” an on-screen message during the show’s closing credits said.

    All four report being detained by Mexican immigration authorities while trying to enter the country, and eventually being turned back because the authorities said their passports had been flagged. It is unclear which government or governments, if any, might have issued the alerts. The U.S. State Department declined to comment Friday, and the Homeland Security Department and Customs and Border Protection did not respond to requests for comment. The Justice Department directed The Times to Mexican officials. Representatives for the Mexican government did not respond to requests for comment.

    A professor recently claimed that the way President Donald Trump formulates his sentences raises concern that he may be unfit to fulfill his duties as president of the United States—all just months after he defended "Black English" as an "alternate form" of the language. John McWhorter, a linguistics professor at Columbia University, pointed out how Trump’s grammatical and spelling mistakes disqualify him from serving as commander-in-chief, in an op-ed for The Atlantic. McWhorter further stated that Trump’s informal style "betray[s] his lack of fitness for the presidency."

    On Sunday, Britain's Daily Star reported that Lady Gaga and Angelina Jolie — two white actresses — are competing for the role of Cleopatra, sparking outrage across social media. Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) demanded that the African queen should be played by a woman of color, even though the historical Cleopatra was Greek, not black. "Stop whitewashing Cleopatra!!!" tweeted Kendra James, a writer and editor at Shondaland.com. "Film the story of literally any other queen on the vast African continent."

    More than four months after Missouri became the first U.S. state to regulate the term “meat” on product labels, Nebraska’s powerful farm groups are pushing for similar protection from veggie burgers, tofu dogs and other items that look and taste like real meat. Nebraska lawmakers will consider a bill this year defining meat as “any edible portion of any livestock or poultry, carcass, or part thereof” and excluding “lab-grown or insect or plant-based food products.” It would make it a crime to advertise or sell something “as meat that is not derived from poultry or livestock.” Similar measures aimed at...

    Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that he’s been told that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia “destabilize the United States.” Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.

    The country would face an economic hellscape if the government shutdown lasts "months or even years," as the president has suggested it might, experts tell NBC News. The doomsday scenario might be unlikely — the longest the federal government has ever shut down is 21 days, a record that will fall if the current closure lasts until Saturday — but it is chilling. "We'll be in no man's land," Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, told NBC News. If the worst were to happen, experts say the devastating impact would be widespread: 38 million low-income Americans lose food stamps...

'Yeah. Yeah. No question,' Ocasio-Cortez replied. 'When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy,' Ocasio-Cortez said.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced legislation on Friday that would require the president and vice president and candidates for the presidency and vice presidency to release their tax returns. The bill, however, would not require members of Congress or candidates for Congress to release their tax returns. The provision is part of H.R. 1—the “For the People Act”—which Pelosi introduced Friday. A summary of the bill says that it includes a section titled “Presidential Tax Transparency.” […] In 2017, when members of Congress were calling on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, Roll Call asked all 535 members...

A subsection of the bill is called...

    It’s no big deal that her colleague, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) called President Donald Trump a “mother-******,” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told an MSNBC town hall on Friday. Thursday, on her first day on the job, Rep. Tlaib declared, “We’re gonna go in and impeach the mother******!” Asked to comment on the vulgar remark, Pelosi invoked “freedom of speech” — and said people shouldn’t make a big deal of it:“That’s freedom of speech on an individual member. As I said, generationally, that would not be language that I would use. But, nonetheless, I don’t think we should make...

    Doctor Who's much-hyped New Year's special is reportedly the lowest-rated episode of the show since it returned with new Doctor, Jodie Whittaker. The series - which returned on October 7 2018 for its 11th [reboot] season - concluded on December 9, with an audience of 6.65 million; but the January 1 special, which saw the infamous Daleks return to the show, haemorrhaged a massive 1.5 million viewers. Estimated overnight figures, according to doctorwhonews, report that the tally of viewers was 5.15 million on New Year's Day.

    At Granny Shaffer’s restaurant in Joplin, Missouri, owner Mike Wiggins is reprinting the menus to reflect the 5¢, 10¢ or 20¢ added to each item. A two-egg breakfast will cost an extra dime, at $7.39. The price of a three-piece fried chicken dinner will go up 20¢, to $8.78. The reason: Missouri’s minimum wage is rising. Wiggins said the price hikes are necessary to help offset an estimated $10,000 to $12,000 in additional annual pay to his staff as a result of a new minimum wage law taking effect Tuesday. […] New minimum wage requirements will take effect in 20...
