    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday took the extraordinary step of firing his embattled investigations commissioner, Mark G. Peters, the culmination of a fierce rivalry between the two powerful men. It was a rare and consequential action by a mayor to remove an investigations commissioner: The position is understood to come with a large degree of independence that allows impartial scrutiny of all areas of government, including the executive branch.

    Silicon Valley is in thrall to the cult of diversity. Its measures its employees against racial metrics even as an industry, whose engine is meant to be the intellect, purges any hint of intellectual diversity. It happened at Mozilla with Brendan Eich, the creator of Javascript. It happened at Google with James Damore. Now it happened at Facebook with Palmer Luckey. Luckey's Oculus fueled the race for virtual reality. Facebook bought his company for a fortune. And then it forced him out because he supported Trump and opposed Hillary.

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement in response to the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, bringing an end to his controversial tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer: I hope transparency and rooting out corruption and abuse becomes the focus of any new Attorney General. President Trump has been terribly victimized by Justice Department and FBI corruption. The Justice Department was a black hole in terms of transparency. It covered up institutional misconduct and, unbelievably, went out of its way to defend misconduct by Hillary Clinton and other Obama administration officials. Now...

  • Tribune fires staff writer (Voicemail Lady)

    The Huron Daily Tribune has issued a statement Monday evening after the newsroom management heard a voicemail left by one of its staff writers to Republican U.S. Sen. Candidate John James. In the voicemail, Brenda Battel requests an interview with James, who is running against Incumbent Debbie Stabenow. Battel then unsuccessfully disconnects the phone, and is heard saying inappropriate comments about the candidate and the race. "I have listened to the voicemail left by Brenda Battel to Mr. James' campaign, and find no reason to defend this behavior," said Kate Hessling, editor of the Huron Daily Tribune. "Brenda Battel's employment...

Durkin, the school has gone in a different direction and bowed to public pressure by firing the embattled coach on Wednesday. Multiple reports confirmed the news from College Park:

    The Campbell Soup lobbyist who said George Soros' foundation was assisting a caravan of migrants bound for the United States is no longer with the company. Kelly Johnston, formerly Campbell's vice president of government affairs, tweeted on Monday that the Open Society Foundations arranged for "troop carriers" and "rail cars" to support the caravan, which formed earlier this month in Central America. Johnston has since deleted his Twitter account. Campbell and Johnston had discussed his leaving over the summer, the company said on Saturday. Johnston was scheduled to leave in November, but the tweet sped up his exit. "In the...

    Two years of pent-up bitterness and backbiting about Megyn Kelly have finally come to a head at NBC News. Her exit from the 9 a.m. hour of the "Today" show appears to be imminent. Variety reported on Wednesday evening that Kelly and NBC News executives have been holding conversations about a new role for her. Two people familiar with the matter confirmed that to CNN Business and said Kelly's show will be ending. Negotiations about the end date and other details are still underway. But Kelly will not be hosting Thursday's program, and she is unlikely to return later, one...

    Almost half of the high-profile male figures ousted from powerful positions in business, government and the media and entertainment industries during the #MeToo movement have been replaced by women, according to a New York Times analysis. According to the Times's analysis, at least 200 men have lost jobs or "major roles" after facing public allegations of sexual misconduct in the year since sexual assault allegations against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein helped bring the #MeToo movement to national prominence. Of those men, about 122 were replaced and 53 of those replacements were women. The Times analyzed the #MeToo movement's impact...

In a series of tweets, Wendig noted that he was fired from the remainder of the series “because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring... It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.” A Marvel spokesperson confirmed that Wendig had...

    A California teacher who taught White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller when he was a third-grader has been suspended after she published an op-ed claiming he was a “loner” who ate glue in her class. The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District placed Nikki Fiske on “home assignment” pending an internal investigation following her piece in The Hollywood Reporter magazine describing the 8-year-old Miller as a “strange dude.” “Do you remember that character in Peanuts, the one called Pig Pen, with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him?” Ms. Fiske wrote Wednesday. “That was Stephen Miller at 8....

    Nikki Fiske, the third-grade teacher who claimed Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller ate glue as a child has been suspended. On Tuesday, the far-left Hollywood Reporter published another one of those childish, mean-spirited personal attacks against a Republican that has become so common throughout the establishment media. This one was titled “Stephen Miller’s Third-Grade Teacher: He Was a ‘Loner’ and Ate Glue.” Other than a nasty attempt to embarrass Miller, the story has no relevance to anything, much less an entertainment publication. The Hollywood Reporter, though, was merely doing a follow-up on a story about Miller as a third-grader...

    A staffer working on Florida gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum's (D) campaign was dismissed after a series of offensive social media posts surfaced over the weekend. Screenshots of since-deleted tweets from Manny Orozco-Ballestas, a youth director for the campaign, were published by conservative blogger Jacob Engels. The tweets, which date as far back as 2012, included several in which Orozco-Ballestas degraded women and one in which he responded to a tweet from President Trump by saying "you need to be executed." The Tampa Bay Times reported on Sunday that Orozco-Ballestas was fired because of the language used in his social media...

    A youth outreach staffer for Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has been terminated after calling for President Trump's death on Twitter, and wearing a shirt calling pro-Trump states "Dumbf--kistan." The staffer, 24-year-old Manny Orozco-Ballestas, made a series of sexually graphic and politically charged comments on social media in 2012 and 2013, according to fringe blogger Jacob Engels, who flagged the posts. In one 2013 post, Orozco-Ballestas wrote to Trump: "you need to be executed." In another, he reportedly wrote, "If you're weighing 300 pounds+ maybe it's a good idea you stop posting all that fattening food pics on [Instagram]!"
