    A chivalrous Army officer reportedly lent his jacket to a chilly Sarah Sanders, press secretary to President Trump, during their unsuccessful attempted visit Wednesday to the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea. The soldier, identified as Chief Warrant Officer 2 Bobby Zizelman, was on the tarmac at U.S. Army Garrison Yongstan when Trump and his entourage tried to make a surprise visit to the DMZ, the Daily Mail said. In what was reportedly a very cold morning, Zizelman, a helicopter test pilot whose role that day was to certify the helicopters Trump’s team would be flying on, offered...

    Becker's Hospital Review ^ | November 10, 2017 | Kelly Gooch
    On Tuesday, Maine became the 32nd state to approve Medicaid expansion and the first to do so via referendum. But Republican Gov. Paul LePage is pushing back. In a statement released the day after the vote, the governor referenced costs associated with the initiative, saying taxpayers would be on the hook for "hundreds of millions of dollars." "The last time Maine experimented with Medicaid expansion in 2002 under then-Gov. Angus King, it created a $750 million debt to hospitals, resulted in massive budget shortfalls every year, did not reduce emergency room use, did not reduce the number of uninsured Mainers...

    Saudi Arabia launched military strikes against Yemen’s defense ministry in the capital city of Sana’a in the latest escalation in the conflict between the two Arab nations, witnesses told the French news agency AFP. It wasn’t immediately clear if the attacks were air or missile strikes, but they came following reports that Iran had manufactured the ballistic missile fired by Yemen’s Shiite rebels toward the Saudi capital a week ago. Remnants of the missile bore “Iranian markings,” the top US Air Force official in the Mideast said Friday, backing the kingdom’s earlier allegations. Saudi Arabia long has accused Iran of...

    TRENTON -- State Senate Republican leader Tom Kean Jr. on Thursday said he'd support an increase in the state's minimum wage in exchange for a middle class tax cut. And he said Gov.-elect Phil Murphy should dump his called-for "millionaire's tax" increase. Kean, R-Union, said he was willing to raise the state's minimum wage to a level that is "modern and fair," but stopped short of agreeing to the $15 per hour sought by Murphy.

Stealth Jeff, an internet user, wrote a large series of numbered tweets. In these tweets, we are given information about what is really going on behind the curtain, and if these facts stand to be true, there are a lot of arrests to be made among the Democratic...

    Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne seems to be the personification of what the Columbia Journalism Review meant when its writer Jon Alsop noted on November 9 that Media too thirsty for a narrative shift on Trump. Alsop pointed out that the liberal media, desperate for a win against President Donald Trump, have latched onto last Tuesday's election results as confirmation of their urgent hopes. Perhaps none was more thirsty for such a narrative shift than laughably failed prognosticator E.J. Dionne as we shall see. First, Alsop revealed how this desperate thirst for a narrative shift has affected MSM coverage of the recent elections:
