  • Former Clinton Pollster: Hillary Clinton Broke Campaign Finance Laws, Not Donald Trump

    Mark Penn, the former pollster for both Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, has penned an op-ed in The Hill Wednesday in which he argues that Michael Cohen’s guilty plea shows the double standard that prosecutors have applied unfairly to Donald Trump. Penn argues that while what Trump is alleged to have done — paying Stormy Daniels for a non-disclosure agreement she had sought for five years prior to the election — was legal, Hillary Clinton failed to report campaign expenditures that led to the Steele dossier. If anyone broke campaign finance law, Penn argues, it was Clinton, not Trump —...

    Penn Jillette is claiming that President Donald Trump made “racially insensitive” remarks during his time on Celebrity Apprentice, which were captured on tapes that still exist. Jillette, a professional magician who appeared on season 12 of the NBC reality series, confirmed to Vulture in a new interview that series creator Mark Burnett has tapes of Trump making the controversial statements. Burnett did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Trump “would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable. I don’t think he ever said anything in that room like ‘African-Americans are inferior’ or anything about rape or grabbing women,...

    "He would say racially insensitive things that made me uncomfortable," Jillette said. "I don't think he ever said anything in that room like 'African-Americans are inferior' or anything about rape or grabbing women, but of those two hours every other day in a room with him, every 10 minutes was fingernails on chalkboard."

    Comedian and magician Penn Jillette said in a new interview that he heard President Trump "say racially insensitive things that made [him] uncomfortable" during tapings of "Celebrity Apprentice" as new claims from ex-White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," make headlines. Jillette, who was a contestant on the show in 2013, told Vulture in an interview published Tuesday that Trump would "ramble" during tapings of his former reality TV show... Jillette told Vulture that he “can emotionally tell you things that happened racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of compassion when I was...

    University of Pennsylvania Law School Professor Amy Wax is scheduled to be the guest interviewee tonight at 8:00 EDT on C-Span's weekly "Q&A" program. Wax scandalized the intellectual community a few years back by writing that many of the problems we have in the culture today, including much poverty, results from our abandonment of the "bourgeois standards" of the 1950's - such norms as two parent families, rigorous education, and hard work. But she really stepped in it last year when she observed that Affirmative Action in education had resulted in a lowering of teaching standards and admission of poorly...

    he “deep state” is in a deep state of desperation. With little time left before the Justice Department inspector general’s report becomes public, and with special counsel Robert Mueller having failed to bring down Donald Trump after a year of trying, they know a reckoning is coming. At this point, there is little doubt that the highest echelons of the FBI and the Justice Department broke their own rules to end the Hillary Clinton “matter” — but we can expect the inspector general to document what was done or, more pointedly, not done. It is hard to see how a...

    The firm headed by Hillary Clinton’s former chief strategist, Mark Penn, is helping run incumbent President Victor Yushchenko’s campaign. Meanwhile Paul Manafort, whose firm worked on Republican John McCain’s losing effort, and Tad Devine, a top strategist on the Democratic presidential campaigns of Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004, are consulting for Victor Yanukovych, the pro-Russian frontrunner in the polls.

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | September 21, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    Last summer the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APCC) at Penn elected to test Americans’ Constitutional awareness but may have contributed to historical misconceptions in the process. "More than half of Americans (53 percent) incorrectly think it is accurate to say that immigrants who are here illegally do not have any rights under the U.S. Constitution," the Annenberg Center claims. Yet and still, when they elaborate on that finding, they have to qualify it by using Supreme Court rulings because the original Constitution and Bill of Rights are so clearly geared towards American citizens: "The APPC survey, conducted Aug. 9-13 among...

The work at Pennsylvania Station is due to begin Monday and run through Sept. 1, leaving the roughly 600,000 commuters who arrive there each morning from New Jersey and Long Island scrambling for alternate ways into the city.

    **SNIP** Reviews of Thursday’s op-ed weren’t much better, with Slate calling it “asinine,” for example. A noted a HuffPost headline read, “It’s 2017. Democrats Should Really Just Stop Taking Mark Penn’s Advice.” Dan Pfeiffer, a former top Obama aide, told me, “There can and should be a robust debate in the party about where we go in the post-Obama era. I don’t pretend to know the right path forward, but I know it isn’t a poll-driven, corporatist path.” Twitter users weren’t much kinder:

    It turns out that multiculturalists--teachers and demonstrative students alike--cannot even expound on their area of expertise accurately. "Take hoop earrings, which date to ancient Assyria," Jonathan Zimmerman, who teaches education and history at Penn, writes in The Chronicle of Higher Education. "In Nimrud, located in present-day Iraq, there’s a depiction of King Ashurnasirpal II (884-859 B.C.) wearing thick hoop earrings." "The ancient Greeks and the Romans wore them, too; so did pirates in many parts of the Western world, who believed that hoop earrings contained healing powers or would protect them from drowning." "And, yes, hoop earrings were eventually adopted...

    Why is Republican nominee Donald Trump leading in two battleground states and nearly tied in another with less than two weeks before the election? Experts, analysts, and Washington, D.C. insiders lectured the American people on how this was not supposed to happen. According to a new poll, Trump maintains a healthy lead in Ohio over Hillary Clinton, 46 to 42 percentage points and in a Bloomberg Politics poll of Florida, Trump leads Clinton 45 to 43. In Pennsylvania, Trump continues to dwindle Clinton's lead where he is now within three points of the Democratic nominee. Florida and Ohio are must...

    UPDATED: Sean Penn’s humanitarian romance “The Last Face” is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest. Others are also quipping that the picture is so awful that it destroyed Penn’s relationship with Theron. The duo broke up a year ago. When critics weighed in, they largely echoed the flash reactions that bubbled up online.

    Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn on Friday rejected Mexico's claim that his secret meeting with Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was crucial to the drug kingpin's recapture, saying officials were trying to put him in the crosshairs of the feared cartel. Penn also told talk show host Charlie Rose that he regrets the fallout from the Rolling Stone article based on his interview with Guzman. Their meeting in a jungle hideout was the first interview anyone scored with the fugitive drug lord, and Penn said he had hoped it would spur a broader discussion on the drug war. In Penn's first major...

    Mexican drug cartels continue to fascinate the minds of Americans who tend to idolize outlaw gunmen with fast cash, fancy cars, guns and women. However, few realize that Mexican drug cartels are as ruthless and sadistic as Middle Eastern terror groups like ISIS with whom they actually have many tactics in common. For most in America, the closest they have come to a drug cartel is the small-time drug peddler in the street corner, the glamorous TV shows, or the Mexican narco-ballads. However, taking a step back and looking at their entire structure, and how those drugs got from...
