    Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, writing in Thursday's New York Times [1], says he has "a few things to say," now that he's leaving the Senate for good. Reid devoted half of his op-ed to a defense of the Senate rule change he instituted in 2013. The so-called "nuclear option" will allow confirmation of Donald Trump's nominees (except for the Supreme Court) by a simple 51-vote majority. It eliminates the filibuster. "One thing we fought for that’s worth defending is a fairer, more open and more productive Senate," Reid wrote. "We changed the Senate rules to guarantee a president’s...

  • GOP braces for Trump loss, roiled by refusal to accept election results

    A wave of apprehension and anguish swept the Republican Party on Thursday, with many GOP leaders alarmed by Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the outcome of the election and concluding that it is probably too late to salvage his flailing presidential campaign. As the Republican nominee reeled from a turbulent performance in the final debate here in Las Vegas, his party’s embattled senators and House members scrambled to protect their seats and preserve the GOP’s congressional majorities against what Republicans privately acknowledge could be a landslide victory for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. With 19 days until the election, the Republican...

    So I'm watching the Weather Channel. (I'm allowed. My 93 year old Mom lives on the Intracoastal in West Palm Beach.) And there's some government guy, in the Carolinas I think, talking about doom and destruction in a little window on the screen. In another window, three times the size, there's some fat oaf flailing away, almost assuredly at taxpayer expense, with his hands and arms. I assume he was "signing" the words of the government guy. So I looked. Our deaf or nearly deaf population is about a million. (And they must be illiterate or blind too, because it...

    Germany were made to work for their gold medal as they recorded a narrow 2-1 win over Sweden in the Olympic Women's final. Dzsenifer Marozsan netted a beauty for the Germans just after the break and Linda Sembrant scored in the wrong net to double the opposition's lead before Stina Blackstenius pulled one back for Sweden. The Swedes had booked their place in the final with a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Brazil in the semi-finals to come up against a German outfit that had cruised past Canada in their previous fixture. With 12 goals en route to the final...

    No, it is not The Onion reporting this, it is the UK Telegraph: German soldiers taking part in a four-week Nato exercise in Norway earlier this year had to leave after just 12 days because they had gone over their overtime limits, it has emerged. Troops have complained to a parliamentary watchdog that they are being forced to spend entire days doing nothing under the new rules. “It can’t be that we can’t fulfil our Nato obligations because of overtime,” Hans-Peter Bertels, the German parliamentary commissioner for the armed forces, told Bild am Sonntag newspaper…. You see, German soldiers are...

    Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx wants to make the nation’s roadways more “inclusive,” according to articles published by National Public Radio (NPR) and Think Progress, the reporting arm of the liberal Center for American Progress (CAP). NPR reported [1] Thursday that Foxx, who was raised by his grandparents in Charlotte, N.C. and became the city’s mayor before President Barack Obama appointed him to Transportation secretary, said highways were designed to deliberately hurt certain residents. “I didn’t realize it as a kid,” Foxx said of the interstate highways snaking through that state. “I didn’t think about it as economic barriers, psychological barriers...

    "For too long, our national parks have ignored important parts of our nation's story," and that includes the "struggle for LGBT rights," Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said Tuesday in a speech marking National Park Week. Jewell noted that people like César Chávez, Harriet Tubman and the Buffalo Soldiers now have their contributions to this country "rightfully recognized" through the national park system.

    (‘They came with a battering ram.”) Cindy Archer, one of the lead architects of Wisconsin’s Act 10 — also called the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill,” it limited public-employee benefits and altered collective-bargaining rules for public-employee unions — was jolted awake by yelling, loud pounding at the door, and her dogs’ frantic barking. The entire house — the windows and walls — was shaking. She looked outside to see up to a dozen police officers, yelling to open the door. They were carrying a battering ram.

    Conservative website Newsmax has pledged a very large donation to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a new report in the Wall Street Journal states. "Newsmax, a conservative news organization, last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period, according to a spokesman for Chris Ruddy, the organization’s CEO. Mr. Ruddy has been friends with the Clintons since 2007," reports the Journal. "Through a spokesman, he said the donation wasn't tantamount to an endorsement of Mrs. Clinton’s potential campaign, though he thinks she would 'make a great presidential candidate.'" Ruddy himself has even written a...

    Remember the song “Baa Baa Black Sheep”? The harmless nursery rhyme was written in the early 1700s and has been sung by children around the world ever since. At least it used to be, now it may be a hate crime. Child care centers in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, are changing the song because of racial and sexist connotations in the lyrics.

    Fierce fighting between Islamists and a rogue Libyan general killed at least 18 people in Benghazi on Monday, triggering fears of an all-out war as hospitals urged citizens to donate blood. Officials at hospitals in the eastern city, the birthplace of the 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled dictator Muammar Qaddafi, said at least 11 soldiers were among the dead and that 81 people were wounded. The government of outgoing prime minister Abdullah Al-Thani said it was holding an “emergency meeting” on the violence, which residents said had eased in the afternoon. An air force commander said the clashes erupted when...
