    The discussion was meant to show that lawmakers are not yielding the climate discussion to those who reject mainstream scienceFor a few hours yesterday, climate science was not the target of attacks in Congress. Researchers, diplomats and policy experts warned about the dangers of ignoring clear research showing that humans are warming the planet at an alarming rate in an unofficial hearing hosted by Democratic lawmakers. The discussion was an alternative to the recent hearings in the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, run by Chairman Lamar Smith, the conservative Texas Republican who has accused federal climate scientists of engaging...

    Democrats were visibly frustrated and second-guessing themselves on Wednesday after Democrat Jon Ossoff lost Georgia's special congressional race the prior night. The election outcome has caused activists and Democratic lawmakers to regroup and try to develop a new strategy for taking back the House of Representatives in 2018. Democrats had hoped to make the special election a referendum on President Donald Trump's agenda by electing Ossoff, who had raised about $25 million. The loss hit Democrats hard, and some questioned the leadership and strategies under House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), according to the New York Times. "Our brand...

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D., Conn.) said on Wednesday that Democrats have been "hyper-confused" on economic issues for years. Harold Ford, Jr., an MSNBC contributor and former Democratic congressman, asked Murphy on "Morning Joe" about the Democrats' future economic message going into the 2018 midterm elections. "I think we have to challenge ourselves," Murphy said. " I think we've been hyper-confused over the course of the past five years. Some of the time we are talking about economic growth. Some of the of the time we are talking about economic fairness." Murphy added that he does not know whether Democrats have...
  • Liberals need to stop using Trump as a shield for their own incompetence in losing

    06/18/2017 9:12:50 AM PDT · by Clive · 17 replies
    Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton. That is not a complicated sentence. Nevertheless the fact conveyed in that sentence came as a monstrous shock to many of the best political minds, pundits and reporters in the whole United States. The greatest brains, the wiliest strategists, the most experienced campaign advisors were in so deep for the Hillary win that they assigned to it a certitude normally associated with the mutterings of Fate. I still receive merriment from the memory of election night, when a bare hour before the polls were closing such oracle-organs as The New York Times and its compeer...

    Hollywood may never forget the weekend of June 16, 2017. Tinseltown box office, already down, is heading to three sizable flops all opening at the same. Major stars and directors are involved, too. I guess the biggest problem out there is “The Book of Henry,” from “Jurassic World” directed Colin Trevorrow. There have been few screenings and no reviews. (UPDATE Really bad ones are trickling in.) Star Naomi Watts did her publicity in May and won’t appear at Wednesday’s L.A. Film Festival premiere. (She’s filming in Prague.) “Room” prodigy Jacob Tremblay co-stars. “Henry” is from Focus Features’ old regime, so...
  • Democrats officially introduce $15 minimum wage bill

    Top congressional Democrats officially introduced legislation Thursday to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, up from its current level of $7.25. The move marks a stark policy change for the party, which was promoting an increase to just $10.50 as recently as 2015. "What we are here today to say is that a living wage is $15... If you are working 40 or 50 hours a week, you should not be living in poverty," said Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. He noted it had been almost a decade since the last time Congress had raised the...

    President Trump just gave ISIS its new name: Losers. (Short for Evil Losers). If you think that’s no big deal, you’re wrong. It’s a big deal. This is – literally – weapons-grade persuasion from the most powerful Master Persuader of our time. As I have taught you in this blog, President Trump’s clever nicknames for people are not random. They are deeply engineered for visual impact and future confirmation bias. In this case, the visuals will be provided by future terror attacks. That reinforces the “evil” part, obviously. But more importantly, the Losers will be doing nothing but losing on...

    Probably Overthinking It ^ | 10/14/2016 | Allen Downey
    Last year I presented a paper called "Will Millennials Ever Get Married?" at SciPy 2015. You can see video of the talk and download the paper here. I used data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) to estimate the age at first marriage for women in the U.S., broken down by decade of birth. I found evidence that women born in the 1980s and 90s were getting married later than previous cohorts, and I generated projections that suggest they are on track to stay unmarried at substantially higher rates. Yesterday the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) released...
  • Jimmy Carter Reveals He Voted for Bernie Sanders Over Hillary Clinton

    NBC News ^ | May 9, 2017 | by ALEX SEITZ-WALD
    Former Democratic President Jimmy Carter revealed Monday night that he backed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton in last year's Democratic presidential primary. "Can y'all see why I voted for him?" the 92-year-old Carter said of Sanders, who was seated next to him during a discussion hosted by the Carter Center on Human Rights in Atlanta. Carter kept his preference quiet during last year's heated race between Clinton and Sanders, but his distaste for Hillary and Bill Clinton is an open secret. Carter would be Sander's highest-ranking supporter in the Democratic Party. Only one senator backed the Vermont Independent...

    Every detail was designed to mark Hillary Clinton’s moment in history — from the glass ceiling at Manhattan’s Javits Center, where her supporters were gathered, to her and hubby Bill’s suite at The Peninsula hotel, selected so she could personally see Trump Tower, home to the foe she was set to crush. Then came the voter returns. In this exclusive excerpt from their fascinating new book “Shattered,’’ political reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes take readers inside Hillary Clinton’s world on the night that changed her life — and the nation — forever. Hillary’s communications team decamped to the Javits...

    Like many after the 2016 election, Barbra Streisand was disappointed with the results. In fact, she was heartbroken. The Oscar winner opened up about Hillary Clinton’s loss during an interview with WNYC’s Leonard Lopate. In her opinion, it all came down to the fact that “women are still so underestimated” in society. “It’s incredible to watch even this last election with Hillary, the kind of strong woman, the powerful woman, the educated woman, the experienced woman, being thought of as the other, or too elite, or too educated,” she said. “It’s very, very odd to me, and it was heartbreaking...

    During Wednesday’s White House briefing, NBC reporter Hallie Jackson asked if President Trump was “expending too much political capital on a race that Republicans should be winning easily,” referring to Georgia’s special congressional election. In response, Press Secretary Sean Spicer blasted the absurd liberal media narrative that it was a “symbolic” or “emotional” victory for Democrats despite their candidate falling short. "“I thought that some of the coverage was a little intriguing as I watched it....Democrats went all in on this race. They spent over $8.3 million. They said on the record that their goal was to win this race....

    For all the roiling anger and energy at the grass roots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren't promising. As it became clear late Tuesday evening that Jon Ossoff would fall just short of the 50-percent mark in the first round of voting in a suburban Atlanta special election, Democrats back in Washington started leafing through their calendars and asking: When does the winning start? Ossoff’s 'moral victory' — capturing 48 percent of the vote in a conservative-oriented district — was welcome, but after two successive close-but-no-cigar finishes in House special...

    I don’t want to sound like the Baghdad Bob of the 2018 election cycle, but the special election in Georgia’s 6th congressional district was yet another reminder that despite the mainstream media’s relentless narrative attempting to turn the early days of the Trump administration into a story of GOP rout, reality has stubbornly refused to cooperate with them. Don’t get me wrong—the GOP is absolutely facing headwinds in 2018. And there’s a lot of political ground left to cover in November. I’d certainly rather be in a position of winning districts by increasing margins rather than decreasing ones. Could the...

    Thousands of protesters at Tax Day marches today in cities from Washington, D.C., to Denver to Los Angeles are calling on President Trump to release his tax returns. Trump is the first U.S. president and the first major party nominee in four decades to refuse to release his full tax returns to the public. Organizers said Saturday's protests, dubbed the Tax March, were scheduled in nearly 150 cities, and stemmed from the women's march that took place the day after Trump's inauguration.

    In a proposal with many losers, the Environmental Protection Agency and State Department stand out as targets for the biggest spending reductions. Funding would disappear altogether for 19 independent bodies that count on federal money for public broadcasting, the arts and regional issues from Alaska to Appalachia. Trump's budget outline is a bare-bones plan covering just "discretionary" spending for the 2018 fiscal year starting on Oct. 1. It is the first volley in what is expected to be an intense battle over spending in coming months in Congress, which holds the federal purse strings and seldom approves presidents' budget plans....

    Talk about your fake news.... A new website, HillaryBeatTrump.org, claims to tell the news "from the Real America where the majority rules." The site is written as if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in the November 2016 presidential election. The satirical website doesn't hold back on its thoughts, with headlines ranging from "Revelation: God comes out as Hillary supporter," "President Clinton awards Obama the Congressional Medal of Freedom," and "Historians say Clinton's presidency is already in all-time top five." Other headlines take a not-so-subtle jab at President Trump, like "NYT pans Clinton's "oppressively intelligent press conference"...
