    Rep. Ted Lieu (D., Calif.) said he would "love to be able to regulate the content of speech" during an interview Wednesday, noting he was prevented from doing that by the First Amendment. Lieu got attention a day earlier when Google CEO Sundar Pichai testified at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, assailing conservative claims of the tech giant's bias against them by reading positive and negative stories about Republican Reps. Steve Scalise (La.) and Steve King (Iowa), the latter of whom has repeatedly courted controversy with racially charged remarks. After CNN host Brianna Keilar praised Lieu for the "clever" stunt,...

    After more than a year of litigation, the University of California, Berkeley, has settled a lawsuit with the Young Americas Foundation and the UC Berkeley College Republicans. Campus conservatives accused the university of bias in the process of bringing high-profile speakers to campus. The original lawsuit revolved around the cancellation of an event with Ann Coulter. An amended version of the lawsuit included road blocks initiated by the university for an event with Ben Shapiro. The Department of Justice filed a statement of interest backing the campus conservatives. The crux of their argument revolved around two campus policies that they...

    On Saturday, November 17, 2018, during protest events near Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman Square Park, six people were arrested.  The General Services Administration, the federal agency responsible for Terry Schrunk Plaza, approved a permit for a group to use the plaza today. As part of the General Services Administration permit, the permit holder had the authority to determine who could and could not enter the park while the permit was in effect. In preparation for today's permit, the Federal Protection Service erected fencing around the perimeter of Terry Schrunk Plaza.  There was also a demonstration in Chapman Square today....
  • ‘The Worst Deal in History’: Brexiteers Respond to Theresa May’s ‘Slave State’ Agreement With Europe

    Brexiteers within the Conservative party met Tuesday as the news emerged of a “technical level” agreement emerged — apparently leaked to Irish journalists sympathetic to the European Union but not to figures within the United Kingdom — and spoke of launching a “coup” against the Prime Minister, Britain’s The Times reported in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Forget all the noise and focus on the big picture. PM is going to recommend daylight robbery: paying Ł39bn for nothing in return; effectively handcuffing us to the Single Market and chaining us to the Customs Union forever. It is the worst...

    A Democratic member-elect for the Tennessee House of Representatives is under fire for slamming the state as “racist” and Republicans voters as “uneducated” in a now-deleted Facebook video. London Lamar, who ran uncontested in the state’s House District 91 and will take office in January, posted the controversial video the day after last week’s midterm elections, CBS-affiliated WREG-TV reported. “Tennessee’s racist. Period. Period. Like, Tennessee is racist,” Ms. Lamar said in the video. “Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated,” she added. “White men voted Republican over 60 or 70 percent, so obviously that’s a particular base of...

    “Recognize one point,” Pelosi told me during an interview in the conference room of her minority-leader suite in the Capitol late Friday: “What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable.” Pelosi said people should pray for the country as long as Trump is in charge. She’s not sure of his mental condition. She thinks he’s degraded the Constitution and American values.

    So, after all this talk about dialing down the rhetoric, letÂ’s be clear about something: thatÂ’s never, ever going to happen. As long as there is a Democratic Party, it wonÂ’t happen. You cannot reason with these people. We said the same thing after the assassination attempt of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ). It didnÂ’t take. Why? ItÂ’s because Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, red states and blue states are different. We have different cultural attitudes, different views on patriotism (Democrats hate outward displays of national pride), and DEEP differences on how government should run the country. We...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had stern words for the National Rifle Association on Tuesday, responding to the gun group's new president attacking student survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, for allegedly engaging in "civil terrorism." “The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. "They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation."
  • State Dems don’t want Independents to vote in party primary (NY)

    New York Democratic leaders say they want more people to vote — except they won’t allow anyone but registered Democrats to vote in party primaries. The New York State Democratic Party plans on blocking a proposed resolution at its May 23-24 convention that would allow independent or “unaffiliated” voters to vote in this year’s Democratic primary for governor. New York’s restrictive voting laws became a national embarrassment in 2016 as many younger voters realized they couldn’t vote for Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary against Hillary Clinton because they missed the deadline to enroll as Democrats.

    A mysterious, cone-shaped device, shown in a demo Monday at Microsoft's Build event in Seattle, hinted at a big leap in capability for the company's digital assistant: the ability to see and identify people. In the ruthless war among Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, and Google's Assistant, this is a feature we haven't yet seen from the competition. What we don't know is what this prototype is, and whether it will ever come out. Microsoft’s official, overshadowed demonstration showed us the conference room of the future. Microsoft incorporated Cortana, the Surface Hub, and Skype’s translation and transcription features, together with PowerBI...

    A Connecticut college is facing national outrage after a professor posted a series of Facebook messages attacking white people – along with a link to an essay that suggested first responders to last week’s congressional shootings should’ve let the lawmakers “f***ing” die. Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams also reportedly shared an essay posted on Medium that included a photograph of Majority Leader Steve Scalise, titled, “Let Them F***ing Die.” The anonymous essayist opined that the Capitol police officers should’ve let Rep. Scalise and otherRepublican lawmakers die in last week’s ball park attack. “Saving the life of those that would...

    Can we just get along? This question is being asked more and more, what with the bitter polarization of the nation. The answer, right now, would appear to be a resounding no. It’s not because we can’t. We don’t want to. I had that thought the other day when I was listening to the Seattle City Council. Many council meetings of late involve left-wingers shouting at other left-wingers for not being left-wing enough. But on this day, a new purity test of left-wingedness was revealed. The council was debating the juvenile-justice issue. Not everyone agrees whether a new jail should...

    Justus Walker was enjoying his Grade 11 class in sociology. Then came the lesson on white privilege. The teacher handed out a checklist with instructions for the students to score themselves on how much of it they had. The questions included things such as: “I can go into a supermarket and find the staple foods which fit with my cultural traditions.” The answers would determine their “privilege points.” After they had completed the exercise, the students were asked to line up in order, from least points to most, and discuss the impact of white privilege on their lives. Some of...
