  • Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence

    WASHINGTON ó The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law. A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individualís choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. The policy prompted fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as...
  • What if the Republicans Win Everything Again?

    The NewYork Times ^ | October 19,2018 | By David Leonhardt
    The end of Robert Muellerís investigation. The loss of health insurance for several million people. New laws that make it harder to vote. More tax cuts for the rich. More damage to the environment. A Republican Party molded even more in the image of President Trump. These are among the plausible consequences if the Republicans sweep the midterm elections and keep control of both the House and Senate. And donít fool yourself. That outcome, although not the most likely one, remains possible. The last couple of weeks of polling have shown how it could happen. Voters who lean Republican ó...

    Hundreds of mostly Honduran migrants have begun the long trek home, some using free bus tickets from Central American authorities, while many more members of a stalled caravan remain in Guatemala at a tense border crossing with Mexico. After clashes with Mexican riot police on Friday, some 650 migrants from the caravan made it into Mexico on the far side of a bridge over the Suchiate River, according to Mexican officials who said they were being registered. Some 2000 Honduran migrants were already back home after giving up on continuing to Mexico, Guatemala's President Jimmy Morales said at a press...
  • Strong Economy Draws Women into U.S. Labor Force

    For most of the last two decades, the share of women participating in the U.S. labor force was in decline, puzzling demographers and economists since female participation was rising in many other developed economies. Thanks to a strong economy, that long-running decline shows signs of reversing. Labor-force participation among prime-age U.S. women aged 25 to 54 has risen to 75.2% from 73.3% three years ago, as their unemployment rate dropped to the lowest level since the 1950s. A plenitude of jobs and a gradual rise in wages is drawing women back into the labor force, including those at the low...

    With new enforcement priorities under the Trump administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are taking aim at employers that knowingly hire unauthorized immigrants. The most recent ó and largest ó bust happened at a trailer manufacturing plant in northeast Texas. Business had been booming at Load Trail LLC, about two hours northeast of Dallas, as customers bought the black trailers to haul hay bales, topsoil, construction refuse and oilfield equipment. Then came the ICE raid in late August. Inside Load Trail's huge production building, welders turn raw steel into trailers, amid cacophonous clanging and showers of sparks. It's brutish labor...

    Time appears nearly up for an estimated 100,000 foreign citizens working in the U.S. under a special authorization for spouses of foreign workers here on the controversial H-1B visa. The federal government, which has been promising since late 2017 to ban these H-4 visa holders from working, has just put out a notice that the new rule will be issued sometime next month.

    The media has battled President Trump from the day he announced his presidential bid. They have attacked him the last two years like all other Republicans, but have consistently failed. Trumpís approval ratings have been relatively consistent with a few rough patches; however, he always bounces back stronger. The legacy media cannot destroy what they did not create.Lesley Stahl with CBS News sat down with Trump for a one-on-one†interview. She peppered him with questions about several different subjects. Stahlís inquiries were ďgotchaĒ in nature, but there was one difference. Trump is not a typical Republican president because he pushed back...

    President Trump threatened to order the U.S. military to "close" the southern border with Mexico, issuing a salvo of morning tweets that blasted Democrats, Mexico and other Latin American countries over immigration policy. The president made the comments as a caravan of Central American migrants is trying to reach the United States. Mr. Trump said leaders in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are doing little to stop the large flow of people into the U.S. "In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of...

    U.S. greenhouse gas emissions fell 2.7 percent from 2016 levels, according to the EPA. Emissions on a per-capita basis hit a 67-year low last year, federal data shows, and supporters are touting EPAís data as proof Trumpís agenda is working. EPAís new data comes on news that, globally, greenhouse gas emissions are set to rise to historic highs by the end of the year, despite nearly 200 countries signing the Paris climate accord.

    CNNís sister network, HLN, has axed top anchors Carol Costello, Ashleigh Banfield and Michaela Pereira as part of a complete programing overhaul, Fox News confirmed on Tuesday. As first reported by Mediaite, CNN executives announced the changes during company-wide meetings at HLN headquarters in New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles. HLN Ė formerly known as Headline News Ė has struggled to maintain an identity in recent years and has been plagued with constant rebranding and programming shakeups. The network once famous for its news ticker and constant updates eventually pivoted to true crime and investigative programing before adding a handful...

    On Monday night, President Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign announced that it had raised in excess of $18 million over the past three months, a haul that means the incumbent has already raised $106 million for a race that is more than two years away. That's a stunning -- and totally unprecedented -- amount of money for a sitting president to have collected less than two years into his first term.

    President Trump on Tuesday referred to the pornographic film actress Stephanie Clifford as ďHorsefaceĒ in a Twitter post, as he gloated about a recent court ruling in his favor. In his tweet, Mr. Trump was referring to a federal judgeís decision to dismiss a defamation suit filed by Ms. Clifford, who is known professionally as Stormy Daniels. The judge also ordered Ms. Clifford to pay the presidentís related legal fees. The presidentís use of the term ďhorsefaceĒ was jarring, even though he has previously used similar disparaging language to describe women who challenge him. But it could also prove problematic...

    (CNN) - President Donald Trump's allies are increasingly embracing his argument that Democrats have become a "mob" heading into the final stretch of the midterm election, echoing his incendiary language in the hopes of motivating Republican voters to head to the polls in just three weeks. America First Policies, the non-profit arm of the political action committee aligned with Trump, will launch a multi-state ad buy Tuesday aimed at turning out voters across 15 states with competitive Senate or congressional races. The $1.2 million digital campaign's first spot, titled "Division by Intimidation," will feature Democrats and protesters engaging in the...
