    - Maine event salutes education summit under George HW Bush - Bush draws laughs by doubting Trump’s attention span As an impeachment storm raged in Washington, former president Bill Clinton and former Florida governor Jeb Bush, son and brother to presidents, sought calmer waters in Maine. The two men appeared together at the University of New England in Biddeford on Friday, to mark the 30th anniversary of a two-day education “summit” held by President George HW Bush in 1989. All but one state governor attended that meeting, Clinton representing Arkansas three years before he beat Bush for the White House....

    Count Ashton Kutcher among the celebrities who wants lawmakers to impeach President Donald Trump. “If you like President Trump or not America is the priority soliciting foreign interference in our election in [sic] unAmerican,” Kutcher wrote in a publicly available text. Kutcher shared a number, where he promised that people would learn “truth,” if they texted, on Tuesday.

He used one of his first...
  • Ukrainian President: No, Trump Did Not Push Me to Go After Biden

    Speaking during a one-on-one United Nations General Assembly meeting with President Trump Wednesday afternoon, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he was not pushed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden or his son Hunter. "I don't want to be involved in the election of USA. I think we had a good phone call. It was normal and we spoke about many things," Zelensky said. "You read it [the call transcript]. Nobody pushed." As a reminder, this is what was said during a call the two leaders had in July. "There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped...

    Oy vey! It seems like every other day a new on-demand car service pops up, with another outrageous promo pushing customers to download an app. Whether it's Uber, Lyft, Gett or any other service, they're all essentially offering competitive rates and services, threatening to put yellow cabs out of business, and leaving consumers flustered with so many options. But now there is one standing out from the rest... Introducing, Schlep: the first on-demand car service that uses "Jewish Geography" navigation. Rather than having a driver who doesn't speak English or has little to say, Schlep provides a nice Jewish mother...

    Whole Foods, the grocery chain owned by Amazon, is cutting health care benefits for its part-time workers, a move that could leave about 1,900 of its employees without medical coverage. Starting next year, Whole Foods employees have to work at least 30 hours a week to qualify for its health care benefits, up from the 20 hours a week it currently requires. The grocer, which has about 95,000 workers, said it is making the change "to better meet the needs of" its business. Whole Foods said it is helping worker explore full-time jobs at its stores or find other ways...

    CNN’s seven hour Climate Change town hall Wednesday night was not enough to propel the network past Fox News and MSNBC in the day’s cable television ratings. During the same time period that Democratic presidential candidates were discussing their plans to combat climate change with a town hall audience, Fox News pulled in 2.5 million viewers compared to just 1.1 million for CNN, according to Nielsen Media Research Fox News also continued to dominate prime-time, averaging nearly 3.2 million viewers, compared to roughly 2.1 million for MSNBC and 1.4 million for CNN.

    It's no secret that President Donald J. Trump's ex-White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci now hates the president...or at least says he does so that CNN will show him some love with TV screentime. But, if he doesn't support President Trump in 2020, then who will he vote for? According to the Washington Examiner, he's been checking out former Vice President Joe Biden. "The Mooch" appeared at one of Biden's swanky campaign stops in the Hamptons.Kerry Picket reports that Scaramucci told the Washington Examiner, "I'm a registered Republican. I haven't switched my support to Vice President Biden, but I will...

    Anthony Scaramucci, who was fired as White House communications director under President Donald Trump after just 11 days in July 2017, has spoken with staunch Never Trump commentator Bill Kristol regarding how Republicans could oust the president from the top of the party’s 2020 ticket, according to a report. In a series of terse text messages with CNBC, Kristol, confirmed his discussions with the hedge fund manager, writing a simple “Yup” when asked by reporter Brian Schwartz about the plot. “Have chatted with him, but working with him would be an exaggeration,” Kristol added, before shying away from offering up...

    Anthony Scaramucci thinks he knows when Donald Trump will decide not to run for president again. And, according to “The Mooch,” it’s only seven months away. "He’s gonna drop out of the race because it’s gonna become very clear. Okay, it’ll be March of 2020. He’ll likely drop out by March of 2020. It’s gonna become very clear that it’s impossible for him to win,” the former (short-lived) White House communications director said in an interview with Vanity Fair published Friday.

    The massive spending deal, negotiated by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and agreed to by the president, looks poised to kill off the Budget Control Act of 2011—the law that was meant to restrain federal spending. With that law on the way out, the question arises: Where can fiscal conservatives turn to exert real and lasting fiscal discipline? Thankfully, two members of Congress have introduced a bill to do just that. The Maximizing America’s Prosperity Act—or MAP Act—is a bill proposed by Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., that would limit federal spending...

    . Officials in West Palm Beach are hoping a continuous loop of children's songs played throughout the night will keep homeless people from sleeping on the patio of a city-owned rental banquet facility. West Palm Beach parks and recreation director Leah Rockwell tells the Palm Beach Post they're trying to discourage people from sleeping outside the glass-walled Waterfront Lake Pavilion, which she says rakes in some $240,000 annually from events. The loop of "Baby Shark" and "Raining Tacos" is a temporary fix to keep homeless people off the patio. Rockwell says the city wants to formalize hours for the facility,...

    President Donald Trump likes to keep score. Well, here's a score for him: America, zero; while the rest of the world keeps tallying up free trade points. That's right; while American consumers have been waiting for well over a year to see some resolution to the various trade disputes started by Trump, other countries have agreed to lower their tariffs against each other and signed free trade agreements with one another. Meanwhile, American consumers and exporters are drowning in a sea of high tariffs. Some of Trump's supporters have argued that the president is actually a free trader who wants...
