    State Sen. Scott Wagner, R-Spring Garden Township, intends to run for governor of Pennsylvania, he said Thursday. He intends to write "a significant seven figure check" to his campaign, from $1 million to just shy of $10 million. He said he has not yet decided whether that money will be a loan to a committee that could be paid back to him or a direct gift. He said that contribution will not require him to sell part of Penn Waste, a waste and recycling company he owns. Wagner, who has been publicly considering a run for months, plans to make...

    Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner on Friday endorsed Ted Cruz's presidential campaign, hailing the Texas senator as a constitutional conservative Republicans should unite behind. Wagner's support comes a day after Cruz got his first Senate endorsement from Mike Lee and just a few days ahead of Missouri's primary. "I am proud to endorse Senator Ted Cruz ahead of the GOP Primary on March 15th," Wagner said in a statement released by the Cruz campaign. "Republicans must unite to win behind a strong, constitutional conservative like Ted Cruz." Cruz will campaign in suburban St. Louis on Saturday at a rally with Carly...

    Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner (R) is endorsing Ted Cruz ahead of her state's primary March 15, praising the Republican presidential candidate as a "trusted" conservative. "Missouri families deserve a trusted conservative leader like Ted Cruz who shares our values and will fight for us in Washington," Wagner said in a statement Friday. She called on Republicans to unite behind Cruz in Missouri, which is one of five states to vote Tuesday. Cruz is second in delegates to front-runner Donald Trump.
  • How one chord changed the world: "Tristan" at 150

    WFMT ^ | 6/10/2015
    If you’re a music lover, you may have heard of the so-called “Tristan chord” from Wagner’s opera Tristan und Isolde. Audiences were stunned to hear this infamous harmony when the opera premiered on June 10, 1865 in Munich, Germany. As Tristan turns 150, let’s take a look at what makes the Tristan chord so unique. The “Vorspiel,” or Prelude, to Tristan begins with with a “dissonant” chord. The terms “consonance” and “dissonance,” “music” and “noise” are largely subjective. Now, in an era where our ears can enjoy everything from Chopin to Chick Corea, what our modern ears hear as “consonant”...
  • Abortion bill dropped amid concerns of female GOP lawmakers

    Washington Post ^ | Ed O'Keefe
    House Republican leaders abruptly dropped plans late Wednesday to vote on an anti-abortion bill amid a revolt by female GOP lawmakers concerned that the legislation's restrictive language would once again spoil the party's chances of broadening its appeal to women and younger voters. In recent days, as many as two dozen Republicans had raised concerns with the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" that would ban abortions after the 20th week of a pregnancy. Sponsors said that exceptions would be allowed for a woman who is raped, but she could only get the abortion after reporting the rape to law...

    Nothing is more obnoxious than calling someone a liar just because they disagree with you. Unless of course, it is true. And it is getting harder and harder to describe the recent black mob violence near Milwaukee without using the word L-word aimed directly at reporters and public officials who ignore, deny and try to wish it away. The latest case happened Saturday night in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. Every year, they have a Tosa Fest, complete with ring tosses, pretzel booths, and this year, a free outdoor movie, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs II. It is supposed...

    The Hill ^ | 8/19/2014 | Justin Sink
    President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place. Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon. Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose...

    Two weeks before the primary, a super PAC that backs Republican women has entered a competitive House race in West Virginia. Women Lead PAC had endorsed former International Trade Commissioner Charlotte Lane’s bid for the 2nd District in the Mountain State. The super PAC has put $40,000 into a direct mail effort to boost Lane’s bid before the May 13 primary, according to a source involved. The source added that the group is likely to put more money behind the piece:

    Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has endorsed businessman Curt Clawson with days to go in the Republican primary race to replace former Florida Rep. Trey Radel. Clawson’s announcement of the endorsement offered no statement from the retiring congresswoman, but the candidate heaped praise on Bachmann, the founder of the House Tea Party Caucus.

    First, it was a Florida congressional race. Now? A Pennsylvania special election for the state Senate. The Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania scores a major win — and yes, the winner says he heard about Obamacare. Scott Wagner is a Pennsylvania state Senator this morning. It wasn’t supposed to happen. In a stunning upset, the York County businessman, taking a stand against the state’s political establishment of both parties, made state history by winning a special election for the Pennsylvania state Senate — in a write-in landslide, defeating both the Republican and Democrat nominees. Wagner captured 48 percent of the vote....

    Haaretz ^ | 5/25/2013 | Ofer Aderet
    200 years after his birth, the composer's family and fans remain split on his legacy. He was a brilliant composer, a confirmed anti-Semite and an undeniably significant influence on the history of music. And today, he would have been 200 years old. That man, of course, was Richard Wagner. “Only Jesus, Napoleon and Hitler had more written about them,” said the German newspaper Die Welt’s culture affairs critic Manuel Brug recently. Wagner is considered one of the more revered and most vilified composers in the annals of the classical music. He was not only an anti-Semite; his compositions were practically...

    WQXR ^ | 5/22/2013
    Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner wrote some of the most famous music of all time. They became icons of their nations during turbulent eras: Verdi for Italy and Wagner for Germany. Their music still moves us, and their operas still play to packed houses around the world. But, in many ways, the two composers were fundamentally opposites, and on the occasion of their Bicentennial year, WQXR presents a one-hour program exploring these crucial differences. We learn how these two men of music, both born in the same year, but flowering in completely different directions, ultimately empowered both the greatest and...

    Today, May 22, is the 200th birthday of famed composer Richard Wagner — so his native Germany is awash in concerts, lectures and recordings to celebrate the Jubiläumsjahr (Jubilee Year). But predictably, the additional attention has stirred up an intensified version of the never-stale debate over Wagner’s authentic legacy: aesthetic prince to be honoured, or moral leper to be shunned? Germany was once considered the pinnacle of aesthetic and philosophical sophistication, and at that pinnacle sat Richard Wagner. But after the war, Wagner (who is universally acknowledged to have been a racist and anti-Semite) retained more fame as Hitler’s muse...

    The Guardian ^ | 5/22/2013 | Kate Connolly
    In his time the composer's 'dangerously stimulating' music was blamed for melancholy, hysteria, hypnosis and even triggering orgasm. Reports may seem far-fetched that a German production of Richard Wagner's Tannhäuser, feted as a highlight of the 200th-anniversary celebrations of his birth this month, have taken such a heavy psychological toll on members of the Düsseldorf audience that some have needed medical attention. But in his day, the German composer was held responsible for a lot more than fainting and heart palpitations: his works were viewed as a threat not only to the health of musicians and listeners but also to...

    After examining all the details that emerged on Friday relating to the efforts by members of President Barack Obama’s administration to remove references to Islamic terrorism when explaining the reasons behind the 2012 attack on an American consulate in Benghazi, the panel guests on MSNBC’s Now agreed that the appearance of a scandal makes the White House “look terrible.” One guest even suggested that the controversy could lead to impeachment proceedings against the president. NBC Reporter Kelly O’Donnell read from portions of emails in which high ranking State Department officials coordinated with the CIA to alter the official talking points...

    NY Times ^ | ANTHONY TOMMASINI
    Wagner and Verdi are destined to be linked forever, however awkwardly, since they were both born in 1813: Wagner in Leipzig, Germany, on May 22; Verdi in little Roncole, Italy, in the Duchy of Parma, on Oct. 9 or 10. (The records are not clear.) They never met and had little good to say about each other. Wagner tended to be circumspect on the subject of Verdi. But in an 1899 interview with a German newspaper Verdi, then 86, called Wagner “one of the greatest geniuses” who left treasures of “immortal worth.” Verdi added that as an Italian, he could...

    "No one, anywhere, is talking about doing away with the Second Amendment, and no one, anywhere is advocating stripping away gun ownership," MSNBC's Alex Wagner insisted on the January 11 edition of her eponymous noontime program. Nice try, Ms. Wagner, but exactly two years ago to the day, your colleague Richard Lui suggested it was time to "revisit the Second Amendment" following the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). In November of 2011, Wagner admitted to liberal comedian Bill Maher that she was "going to be pilloried for this" but that she would amend the U.S. Constitution to ditch the...
