    ‘The Conners’ minus fired Roseanne Barr is one risky prospect. We’ve got details on how ABC execs are afraid the show will fail without its longtime lead character. Thanks to what Roseanne Barr calls a “misunderstood tweet” in May, she quickly was fired by ABC and the wildly successful revival of her 1990s sitcom was cancelled. The network thought her tweet about Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrettwas racist and within hours Roseanne was out of a job. Now the show is going on without her and the rest of the cast is coming back for The Conners. ABC execs are...

    Former President Barack Obama is expanding his influence ahead of November's midterm elections. On Monday, he released a second slate of endorsements for Democrats running for offices ranging from local to national, bringing the total to more than 300. Among the most prominent candidates to win Obama's support are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congressional candidate who won an upset primary victory this summer in New York; Andrew Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor who is running for governor in Florida; and Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Arizona. While the candidates that Obama endorsed stretch up and down the ballot...
  • The Once-respected NBC News is suffering from a losing streak

    The Hill ^ | 07/10/2018 | BY JEFF MCCALL,
    NBC News was for years the network juggernaut that raked in the ratings and the cash. It was also widely respected for its journalism standards. Now, the once-respected news organization is wobbling after months of self-inflicted blunders. The missteps include personnel disasters and questionable news judgments. These preventable gaffes suggest a news hierarchy at NBC that has lost its compass, operating as a misguided corporate bureaucracy and not as a journalistic service to the nation. NBC pioneered broadcast news in the late 1920s with radio news updates from the legendary Floyd Gibbons. The network was the first to venture into...
  • Florida crabs are being defaced with vulgar political messages

    Red State and Federalist contributor Brandon Morse “found” a surprising political bent to the crustaceans he was after when he went crabbing last week in Tampa Bay. One of the crabs he caught had been Sharpie’d on its underside. Its message? Not very kind! Morse side-stepped talking with a reporter from the Tampa Bay Times in favor of lettings crab advocates speak for the anti-Hillary Clinton creature, retweeting statements in an attempt to gain insight into this underserved undersea demographic.

So it has no real weight. (6) Why all the hype? To distract. (7) What are they...

    John Kerry — who ran against George W. Bush in 2004 — told Palestinian officials he is strongly considering taking on President Trump in the next election. He also discussed the administration’s efforts to discuss a peace deal between Israel and Palestine following the White House’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Kerry had initially considered running in 2016, but ultimately decided against it. He previously lost the 2004 election after obtaining only 251 electoral college votes against Bush’s 286 votes.

    Sean Hannity said that, in light of inconsistencies in his recollection of sexual misconduct allegations against him, Judge Roy Moore (R-Ala.) should be given 24 hours to fully explain the situations or bow out of his Senate race. "You know I do not and will never rush to judgment, because we have seen the media and politicians get it wrong so many times," he said. But, he said that in light of new information from an accuser of Moore's, the public should be troubled by a few things in the case. Hannity said he had to ask Moore several times...

    President Trump has opted to remove Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director, as first reported by The New York Times. Scaramucci's removal comes 10 days after his appointment to the role, a move which caused significant shakeups in Trump's White House. The New York Times reported Monday that new White House chief of staff John Kelly requested Scaramucci's ouster, three people close to the decision told the newspaper. Kelly reportedly made clear to White House staff members that he will be in charge there following Trump's announcement he would be chief of staff last Friday. The Times reported that...

  • Hillary Clinton sees Minnesota as model for fighting domestic terror recruitment

    Hillary Clinton cited efforts already underway in Minnesota as an example of how to fight domestic recruitment of terrorists, using a Minneapolis speech on Tuesday to call for a stepped-up effort but one that respects people of different backgrounds. "We cannot let fear push us into reckless actions that end up making us less safe," Clinton said in a 45-minute speech at the University of Minnesota. Her campaign billed the speech as a major address on counterterrorism and preventing the radicalization of U.S. citizens into global jihad. "Americans are going to have to act with both courage and clarity." Speaking...
  • Abrupt climate change can occur below 2°C warming rise (It can happen even when it isn't happening)

    Climate change could arrive with startling speed. New research has identified at least 37 “tipping points” that would serve as evidence that climate change has happened – and happened abruptly in one particular region. And 18 of them could happen even before the world warms by an average of 2°C, the proposed “safe limit” for global warming. Weather is what happens, climate is what people grow to expect from the weather. So climate change, driven by global warming as a consequence of rising carbon dioxide levels, in response to more than a century of fossil fuel combustion, could be –...

    The death toll in a stampede outside Mecca has risen to 717, with at least 800 injured, the deadliest disaster on the annual hajj pilgrimage in over a quarter of a century. The crush happened in the Mina valley, a few miles outside Mecca, where a sprawling camp of 160,000 tents fills with millions of visitors for a few days each year. Tragedy hit when two large groups of pilgrims who were preparing for one of the last major rites of their trip met on an intersection of two roads, Saudi authorities said.

    CBS News reports that the Obama administration has asked Israel to stop killing Iranian nuclear scientists. It was widely suspected that Israel had been behind a series of assassinations of key figures in the Iranian nuclear program, but never quite confirmed--until CBS' Dan Raviv cited sources close to Israel's Mossad intelligence agency. Israel and the US have both used a variety of unconventional methods to attack Iran's nuclear program.

    Jimmy Carter, the man considered by Republicans and Democrats alike as the most incompetent U.S. president in modern history, made comments that sure sounded like he called President Barack Obama incompetent over his handling of the Affordable Care Act. But if it helps, he did it in a nice way. Carter made the observation during an interview this week with Parade Magazine. “He’s done the best he could under the circumstances,” Carter said of Obama. “His major accomplishment was Obamacare, and the implementation of it now is questionable at best.”
  • States consider fees for hybrids to recoup lost gasoline taxes

    North Carolina is joining a growing number of states exploring new fees for hybrid and electric car owners to help make up for revenue those drivers aren’t paying in gas taxes on their fuel-efficient vehicles. The proposal strikes many owners of alternative-fuel vehicles and some advocacy groups as a wrong-headed approach to balancing priorities of promoting U.S. energy independence with sustainable infrastructure funding. But policymakers and some experts argue taxing hybrid and electric vehicle owners is a matter of making sure all drivers help maintain the roads they use and construct new ones.
