  • Tesla shares dive after Consumer Reports yanks recommendation for Model S

    LA Times ^ | 10-20-15 | Jerry Hirsch
    Consumer Reports withdrew its recommendation for the Tesla Model S — a car the magazine previously raved about — because of poor reliability for the sporty electric sedan. The turnabout comes after the influential consumer magazine handed the luxury car a “worse-than-average” rating in its annual report on the predicted reliability of new vehicles issued Tuesday. The news sent Tesla Motors stock down as much as $23.77, more than 10%, to $204.33 in mid-day trading. See the most-read stories this hour >> Consumer Reports surveyed 1,400 Model S owners “who chronicled an array of detailed and complicated maladies” with the...

    By tomorrow night we’ll likely know the name of the next president. But we already know the loser in this election cycle: political reporters. They’ve disgraced themselves. Conservatives have long complained about liberal bias in the media, and with some justification. But it has finally reached the tipping point. Not in our lifetimes have so many in the press dropped the pretense of objectivity in order to help a political candidate. The media are rooting for Barack Obama. They’re not hiding it. Consider Benghazi. An American consulate is destroyed and a US ambassador murdered at a time when the president...

I was ready to arrange a $500,000 donation to Planned Parenthood in Texas. The donor was in the car on the way to meet the CEO, checkbook in hand. But then Planned Parenthood called and told him to turn around. They didn’t want his money. Want is the only word for it. Because, Planned Parenthood sure as hell needs it.

    WASHINGTON — Amplified by the right-wing message machine, Republicans paint President Obama as an unyielding left-winger, an unreconstructed liberal who refuses to compromise. The president’s critics have turned the truth inside out: One of Obama’s greatest political weaknesses has been his stubborn — and unrequited — love for bipartisanship. The president has made some of his biggest mistakes trying to woo a GOP opposition that has committed itself to frustrating him at every turn. If he had ignored recalcitrant Republicans, for example, his health care legislation might have become law without months of damaging political drama. In an interview last...

House Speaker Jim Tucker told the state House of Representatives on Wednesday that the pay raise bill would be scheduled for a vote on Friday.

    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - A single laptop can reveal much, and so it is with the digital treasure chest that Colombian commandos found in the jungle quarters of slain rebel leader Raul Reyes. Files in the computer seized in Saturday's raid into Ecuador that claimed the lives of Reyes and 23 of his comrades offer an intimate portrait of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's desire to undermine Colombia's U.S.-allied government. If authentic, the documents show that sympathies Chavez first aired publicly in January grew out of a relationship that dates back more than a decade. But Chavez is not one of...

    For many sophisticated conservatives, Mitt Romney is an appealing presidential candidate. Before he served a respectable term as governor of Massachusetts, he rescued the scandal-plagued Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. He has also been very successful in business, making millions as the co-founder of a private equity investment firm. Though his hyperpandering to the narrow-minded in this campaign has cost him some honor, he's still smart, accomplished and photogenic. He's also a Mormon, a biographical note that has caused considerable consternation among the ultraconservative Christians who make up a sizable portion of the GOP's core constituency. Many of them reject...

    Death on a battlefield is hideously arbitrary. A soldier is in the wrong place at the wrong time, a guy fills in for a buddy on patrol, and he's dead. One moment, one decision, one split-second reaction, and all might be different. I'm always reluctant to compound war's unfairness by singling out our war dead for special attention. Is the 2,000th casualty more worthy of notice than the 20th? Not unless you're bent on making some kind of point about a particular war. Is one fallen soldier's story more significant than another's, except for their family and friends? Not unless...

    If they really wanted to, your representatives in Washington could dry up illegal immigration almost before you could say, "Tom Tancredo is a tiresome demagogue." All they would have to do is require U.S. employers to check the legal status of all employees and impose stiff sanctions — including multimillion-dollar fines and prison time — on employers who flout the law. After a few executives had done the perp walk, others would get the message. Illegal hiring would drop precipitously. Since the vast majority of illegal immigrants come to this country to work, many of them would leave if they...

    For anyone that had the misfortune of witnessing the Tucker Carlson “interview” with CAIR mouthpiece Ibrahim Hooper on MSNBC Tuesday night, several things were readily apparent. To the uninformed, naïve middle-American, it should now be obvious not to expect any mercy from the proponents of the “most merciful Allah”. But to those of us burdened with greater insight into the Islamic hate machine, this exposition served as yet another reminder that CAIR’s vision of “American-Islamic Relations” amounts to nothing more than unconditional dhimmitude here in the USA. The CAIR-free days of years past are indeed a distant memory. Carlson’s brief...

    A week after Hurricane Katrina roiled the waters of the Mississippi and Lake Pontchartrain and flooded southeastern Louisiana, conservative commentator George Will compared the crisis with urban riots of the 1960s. On ABC's "This Week," Will voiced skepticism about the prospects for economic recovery in the region. "I hope New Orleans recovers," he said. "Newark hasn't from the '67 riots. Detroit hasn't from the '67 riots." At the time, it seemed an odd moment in an otherwise mundane discussion of the politics of natural disaster, since Katrina's devastation was fueled by nature, not social unrest. But Will's comments merely foreshadowed...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court refused Monday to consider whether former Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker was wrongly barred from raising new arguments in challenging his 1998 conviction for tax conspiracy. Tucker pleaded guilty to the charge, but now wants to have his conviction overturned based on new information. His attorney had asked the court to use the case to clarify when defendants can get new evidence before a judge. Separately, Tucker was convicted of fraud and conspiracy in 1996 in a joint trial with former President Clinton's one-time business partners, James and Susan McDougal. They had been accused...

Jim Guy Tucker on Wednesday finally got to hear the government concede that he was right. The concession took the steam out of allegations, leveled by the independent counsel eight years ago against Tucker and a business partner, William Marks of Boston, that the pair conspired to put their cable television company through a sham bankruptcy to avoid paying $3.8 million in corporate income taxes on the profits. According to a formal stipulation agreed to in...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- A federal judge on Monday upheld the Whitewater fraud conviction of former Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, rejecting his claim that the government withheld information about benefits afforded a key witness. In a telephone interview Monday, Tucker said he wouldn't make a decision to appeal the ruling until after he had reviewed it and sought counsel from his attorney. The decision by U.S. District Judge George Howard Jr. was the latest ruling in the long-running Whitewater saga, the Arkansas land deal that also involved Bill and Hillary Clinton. Tucker's appeal attacked the credibility of David...

    Bush soars, but how he'll land is another story Remember Bill Clinton's infamous haircut on board Air Force One? In 1993, according to front-page headlines and blaring broadcast reports, Clinton shut down Los Angeles International Airport to get a trendy haircut from a celebrity stylist. Those reports, which turned out to be dead wrong, took on a life of their own because of alleged inconvenience to the passengers left circling in frustration. Later news reports that put the episode in perspective -- there were no delays of scheduled commercial flights -- ended up on the back pages of newspapers or...
  • Halliburton An Irritant In Plan For Iraq

    Halliburton an irritant in plan for Iraq Perhaps President Bush has perfectly good reasons for allowing American companies with White House connections to get secret contracts for rebuilding Iraq. Perhaps the president has considered the ramifications of giving billions in business to companies such as Halliburton, where Vice President Dick Cheney was CEO. Nevertheless, the president should reconsider the process for awarding bids for the reconstruction. It's bad enough that the insider deal-making feeds the conspiracy theories of loonies such as former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney -- who infamously suggested that Bush allowed the terrorist atrocities of Sept. 11 so...

    Georgia's new Republican governor, Sonny Perdue, desperately wants a way out of the mess he created when he reopened debate over the old Georgia flag, which prominently featured the Confederate battle emblem. The governor twists and squirms; he dissembles and reverses course; he points fingers and dodges responsibility. Perdue's latest ploy is to propose a nonbinding referendum that would allow voters to choose next year among flag designs -- including the current flag, which minimizes the Confederate emblem. While Perdue may privately hope that Georgians don't follow the lead of Mississippians -- who brought their state ignominy and a boycott...

    E-mail Cynthia Tucker On Sunday, January 12, 2003, Cynthia Tucker published an editorial piece entitled Bush snubs black voters with Pickering. In this column, Tucker takes on the issue of Bush's renomination of Charles Pickering for the federal bench. She claims that "Pickering's recent record suggests a glaring racial insensitivity. An example is Pickering's handling of a 1994 cross-burning case." Tucker asserts that after burning a cross in the yard of an interracial couple, "...[Daniel] Swan and his friends, not content with mere symbolic violence, fired shots into the occupied house that just missed the couple's baby. I can't imagine...

    THE SELF AS GOD IN GERMAN PHILOSOPHY All of which is only another way of saying that . . . it is our affair to participate in this redemption by laying aside our immediate subjectivity (putting off the old Adam), and getting to know God as our true and essential self. H E G E L The movement of thought from Kant to Hegel revolved in a fundamental sense around the idea of man's self-realization as a godlike being, or alternatively, as God. A radical departure from Western tradition was implicit in this tendency. the centuries-old ruling conception of...

    [ The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: 10/27/02 ] Bush offers disinformation about Saddam Do you believe that Saddam Hussein had a hand in the terrorist atrocities of Sept. 11? If you do, you have a lot of company: About two-thirds of Americans, according to a recent Pew Research poll, believe Saddam is linked to the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. That's not surprising. The Bush administration has worked very hard over the last several months to convince Americans that Saddam is linked to the assault that killed more than 3,000 people last year. They've succeeded despite what ought...

    Just in time to mend his strained ties with public school teachers, Gov. Roy Barnes has found his voice on vouchers, dismissing them as "not practical" in Georgia. He's right. Barnes may have spoken up so forcefully against vouchers because he found it politically expedient to do so, but he also happens to have found one of the glaring flaws in local voucher proposals: They won't work. "There is not a large private school system in this state," Barnes told an audience at a Cobb County synagogue over the weekend. "There's simply not enough capacity." Voucher proposals are popular with...

    If you thought Cynthia McKinney, the wild and wacky Democratic congresswoman from DeKalb County, might calm down and mute her rhetoric, you were wrong. With the FBI, the CIA and the White House reeling under revelations that they had missed signals of impending terrorist attacks, McKinney has only gained confidence and stature. Back in April, you may recall, McKinney in effect suggested that President Bush had aided and abetted the Sept. 11 hijackers, hinting that the president knew of the attacks in advance but failed to prevent them so that his friends in the defense industry would profit from the...
