Nearly 100 historians and biographers rated 43 US presidents on 10 qualities of presidential leadership: public persuasion, crisis […]
Trump’s gravest responsibility is to defend the United States from foreign attack—and he’s done nothing to fulfill it.
Trump has a history of shifting his positions in response to events or advice. Before he entered the political fray in earnest, he expressed support for a ban on assault weapons and “a slightly longer waiting period” to purchase a gun.
But during his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump ran as an unabashedly pro-gun candidate, warning the NRA: “The only way to save our second amendment is to vote for a person that you all know named Donald Trump.”
Instead of “draining the swamp,” President Trump put some of the least qualified people into positions of power throughout his government. One shining example of incompetent leadership is Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed his “deep sadness,” but continues to block gun-control proposals that enjoy the support of most Americans.
Amid the anguished cries for action rising up from Florida, a national tone was set by Donald Trump that was largely devoid of a sense of urgency.

Philanthropic heirs to OxyContin fortune have a ‘moral duty to help make this right’ says the widow of one of Purdue Pharma’s founders
Livestock raised for food in the US are dosed with five times as much antibiotic medicine as farm animals in other countries, a study revealed.
Higher use of antibiotics, particularly those that are critical for human health – the medicines “of last resort,” which the World Health Organization wants banned from use in animals – is associated with rising resistance to the drugs and the rapid evolution of “superbugs” that can kill or cause serious illness.
Peter Thiel is a billionaire serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and the most prominent supporter of President Trump in Silicon Valley. And some say, the most dangerous conservative in America.
The utopian vision of the Internet has not materialized. In its place we have widespread government surveillance, a concentration of power into the hands of a few large multinational companies, and increasingly politicized “fake news.”
Eighty-four women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate to criminal behavior ranging from requests for massages to intimidating sexual advances to rape. It’s time to turn the page on sexual abuse and start acting civilized.

While work continues slowly on restoring power, the tremendous destruction has resulted in a cascade of further problems, including job losses, foreclosures, a decrease in neighborhood police presence and a resulting increase in violent crimes.
Trump says the property is worth $50 million – until he gets the tax bill – then suddenly says it’s only worth about $15m. Who should we believe? Trump or The Donald?
In some sense, President Trump is just doing what Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan did before him, aided by Republicans in Congress. Both swore to balance the budget or to bring down the debt. Instead, both signed legislation that increased deficits, primarily through tax cuts and increased military spending.
It was a sad nice night for the truth. But that’s what we have learned to expect from a president who lies virtually every time he speaks.
A new Pentagon study contains findings that run contrary to White House views on global warming.
From voting to healthcare, music to energy production, blockchain may just change the way we run our lives.
The Carnegie Deli in midtown Manhattan, a legendary business in the city and just steps away from the renowned, eponymous concert hall after which it is named, will serve its last pastrami on rye on New Year’s Eve, after more than 80 years.
Not one person at Apple had stopped to think a period tracker might be useful. And that’s because Apple, like most tech companies, is dominated by myopic men.
It is rural America that gave President Trump his election. Hillary Clinton won the nation’s largest metropolitan centers; Trump took more rural areas. These pendulum swings in public lands policy are doing harm to both affected communities and the resource.
Russia is building a Nuclear Doomsday Weapon that can completely wipeout entire regions and poison the area for generations to come.
Top Republicans say they do not remember President Donald Trump making “Shithole Countries” comment. Who is lying?

The door remains open to the European Union if the UK wants to change its mind on Brexit.
Donald Trump’s current approval rating in Gallup’s weekly poll is just 38 percent, with 57 percent saying they disapprove. What is surprising about this isn’t that he has the lowest approval ratings of any president in recent history, but that 38% of Americans still approve of the man that has been called “The worst president ever.”
While most voters said Trump is not level-headed, honest or even fit to serve as president, some still approve of him. And that’s the problem.
ExxonMobil, the world’s biggest oil company, knew as early as 1981 of climate change – seven years before it became a public issue, according to a newly released email from one of the firm’s own scientists. Despite this the firm spent millions over the next 27 years to promote climate denial.
The uniforms led to thousands of complaints from flight attendants and crew members who said they caused hives, wheezing, vertigo and headaches.
Of all the powers held by the president, the least checked or balanced is his authority over the world’s mightiest arsenal. He exercises this awesome, civilization-ending power alone.
To all the people living in coal country that voted for Donald Trump on the promise that he would revive the industry: It ain’t gonna happen.
The nuclear reactors in San Onofre were permanently shut down in 2013 following a catastrophic malfunction. What to do with its 3.6 million pounds of highly radioactive waste remains an epic problem, and the proposed solution is to bury the waste on the beach in cheap, thin containers. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
Donald Trump denied that he used the phrase “shithole countries” to describe Central American and African nations during talks with US lawmakers, but one of the senators present contradicted Trump and called the remarks he had heard “hate-filled, vile and racist.”
The delta smelt is on the brink of extinction and has fallen to the point where it can hardly be found anymore. Why this matters so much.
Diet Coke is getting a makeover to try to invigorate the sugar-free soda’s slumping sales.
Today, even those whose job it is to sit in bunkers and await a signal to launch nuclear weapons— are tested three times per month on their ability to execute protocols. They are required to score at least 90 percent. Testing is not required for their commander in chief to be able to execute a protocol, much less his ability to demonstrate the high-level thinking that would set this process in motion.
It’s been about 70 years since the disposable tampon came on the scene. Considering half of humanity has to deal with menstruation, that’s far too long since we’ve had a breakthrough in feminine products. Thankfully, revolutionary upstarts are disrupting the period space, and unsurprisingly this new class of “period-preneurs” are women.
Someone should probably tell Donald Trump that smart people usually don’t tweet about being “like, really smart” and “a very stable genius.” But it’s too late for that because the President already used his Twitter fingers to send out those exact sentiments.
The race is on to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, with all eyes fixed on tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet, the parent company of Google.
Former Trump campaign manager asks federal court in Washington to set aside charges as criminal trial approaches.
My indelible impression of talking to them (White House Staff) and observing them through much of the first year of his presidency, is that they all — 100 percent — came to believe he was incapable of functioning in his job.
The emerging cannabis industry is seeing more women taking leadership roles in what was once considered a male-dominated sector.
A growing list of powerful men have faced serious consequences for sexual misconduct allegations, but the most powerful one of all has faced none. Instead, Donald Trump’s official position, as his spokeswoman Sarah Sanders recently clarified in a White House press briefing, is that the 20 women accusing him of assault and harassment are lying. Trump has also suggested some were not attractive enough for him to want to sexually assault.
America’s strangest presidency ever has been a radical departure – in tone if not in substance – not least over race, the media and the environment. So what’s in store for 2018?
Bigger than Watergate? Or a transparent sham? Whatever else it may be, the story of Donald Trump and Russia comes down to this: a sitting president or his campaign is suspected of having coordinated with a foreign country behind the scenes of the election that put him in office.
This has been quite a year for America and the world. By most yardsticks, our nation seems to be going backwards: We have a billionaire president that shows no hesitation to making claims that are patently false. We have deepened the gap between rich and poor, made healthcare and college education further out of reach, eliminated environmental protections, and gave hefty tax breaks to the ultra wealthy. Here is a bit of this turbulent year in photos.
Overfishing, development and pollution have all contributed to the reef’s decline, but climate change is its biggest threat. UN targets must be met to stop ocean acidification

Three leading figures in the Miss America Organization have resigned after leaked emails revealed how pageant officials ridiculed winners for their appearance, intellect and sex lives.
There’s the library. There’s the memoir. There might be a foundation. Maybe some paid speeches. Perhaps a new hobby, like oil painting. Maybe, in the case of George HW Bush, accusations of groping by eight women.
Despite claiming otherwise (which in less polite circles would be called telling a lie), Donald Trump and six members of his inner circle will be big winners of the Republicans’ vast tax overhaul, with the president personally benefiting from a tax cut of up to $15m a year, research shows.
Corporations are about to start saving a lot of money, and most of it is not going to workers… it’s going to shareholders, rich investors, and corporate executives.
Each year, US cities give thousands of homeless people one-way bus tickets out of town. An 18-month nationwide investigation reveals, for the first time, what really happens at journey’s end
Last year, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that people working in agriculture – including farmers, farm laborers, ranchers, fishers, and lumber harvesters – take their lives at a rate higher than any other occupation.
Just when you think things are as ridiculous as they can be, another directive comes from the worst president ever, and surprises even those of us who thought we’ve seen it all. This one is a directive to the CDC.
It will go down one as of the most excruciating job interviews of all time.
A Trump federal judicial nominee was utterly stymied by a line of questioning on basic knowledge of procedural law during his Senate confirmation hearing, raising questions about the fitness of Trump’s choices for the posts.
“The US is alone among developed countries in insisting that while human rights are of fundamental importance, they do not provide rights that guard against dying of hunger, dying from a lack of access to affordable healthcare, or growing up in a context of total deprivation.”
“I did try and fuck her… I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”
If I seek for help they might deport me,” she said, “but if I don’t he might kill me.”
The 11 women say they were raped repeatedly by the armed men. One woman – three months pregnant at the time – was with her 10-year-old daughter when she was seized by the men, some of whom were in uniform. Twelve of the men raped her as her daughter watched. She later suffered a miscarriage.

After weeks of speculation, Disney has emerged as the lead media company to purchase select 21st Century Fox assets
The White House’s stance is that all 16 women who have accused Trump of sexual improprieties, harassment, or assault are lying. Trump’s old position on the Access Hollywood tape was that he was lying. The view he now apparently holds privately is that the tape itself is lying.
The United Nations monitor on extreme poverty and human rights has embarked on a coast-to-coast tour of the US to hold the world’s richest nation – and its president – to account for the hardships endured by America’s most vulnerable citizens.
Republicans muscled the largest tax overhaul in 30 years through the Senate early Saturday, and in doing so, took off their masks and revealed to the world their true nature: that they only care about corporations and the wealthy, and that despite their repeated campaign promises to help the middle class and the poor, they never had any intentions of fulfilling those empty words that stir so many citizens to cast a vote against their own interests.
When the crowd chanted “Lock her up!” about Hillary Clinton, Michael Flynn smiled. “You’re damn right,” he told last year’s Republican national convention. “You’re exactly right. There’s nothing wrong with that! And you know why we’re saying that? We’re saying that because if I – a guy who knows this business – if I did a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail today.”
“I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf.” –Donald J. Trump, August, 2016
The resulting definition of broadband as enabling users to generate, store, transform, and process their data is absurd. It is, as the Internet Engineers comment points out, like saying your phone is a pizzeria because you can use it to order a pizza.
The specific dissonance of Trumpism—advocacy for discriminatory, even cruel, policies combined with vehement denials that such policies are racially motivated—provides the emotional core of its appeal. It is the most recent manifestation of a contradiction as old as the United States, a society founded by slaveholders on the principle that all men are created equal.
Unfortunately, most Trump supporters will not understand that the president’s use of the name of the Native American’s name was done so in a racist and disparaging manner. This article will do little do convince anyone that doesn’t already see this fact. And for that, we are sad for America and the future we face.
Donald Trump has been accused of sexual assault and sexual harassment, including non-consensual kissing or groping, by at least fifteen women since the 1980s.
Who were the worst American presidents? While it takes a rare combination of qualities such as strength of character, high principles, veracity, good judgment, and political skills to be considered the best of presidents, it takes a combination of persistent lying; failure to exercise good judgment; scandals; policies that weaken the country and hurt the economy; favoritism and cronyism; tax policy that enriches the elite while harming others; attacks on public institutions such as education, the arts, the environment, and a free and open media; and a general dereliction of duties, to be considered among the worst. The presidents listed below all shared some or more of those traits.
Congressional Republicans have argued that the tax overhaul will launch so much economic growth that it will generate additional revenue, allowing cuts to pay for themselves. But the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget said that it would not generate the kind of growth needed to pay for itself, and indeed, recent estimates from the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation found that both the House and Senate versions of a tax overhaul would add around $1.4 trillion in debt in order to pay for the tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations.
Donald Trump is radically reshaping the same federal courts that have been the biggest threat against his agenda – by picking mostly white, conservative men
“There are times,” said Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, “when men don’t like women who are smarter than them.”
The Republican’s policies are now so far removed from the promises and statements they make, that it is astonishing that anyone still believes in their lies and votes Republican at all, with the exception of the wealthiest 1% of the nation, whom those polices favor.
The House of Representatives voted 227-205 to approve a tax cut bill that provides nearly half of its benefits to the top 1 percent of taxpayers.
The five articles accused the president of obstruction of justice related to the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and other offenses.

In this administration, where the worst possible people for the job are put into positions of power, the White House press secretary seems to have forgotten a key recording.
The administration has been tragically effective at dismantling environmental and health regulations — so that Trump’s most enduring legacy may be cancer, infertility and diminished I.Q.s for decades to come.
The fact is that Roy Moore is very much who the Republicans are. He is representative of a fanatical splinter of American Protestantism that has accounted for a great deal of the success enjoyed by modern conservatism and the Republican Party for over four decades, and there always has been dark sin at the heart of that success.
Perhaps the greatest tragedy of the Trump Era is that, while the American republic falters by a thousand daily cuts, we are neglecting the defining issues of our time.

Does money roll downhill? The republican tax plan’s “trickle-down” approach was popularized in the 1980s during the Reagan administration, though it dates back at least to a 1932 wisecrack by Will Rogers. And history shows it has a spotty record of delivering on its promises.

“He is not fit to be president. He does not have an understanding of the issues, the political process. We are dealing with countries all over the world. They want to know if your word is good. Trump’s word is not good.”

In the sensational tapes recorded by the First Lady months after the President’s death, broadcast by ABC, Kennedy revealed her belief that Lyndon B. Johnson and a cabal of Texas tycoons orchestrated the murder of her husband by gunman Lee Harvey Oswald
As the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico continues, Donald Trump has spent the weekend using his favorite medium, his Twitter account, not to soothe emotions or offer succor to the people of the island but to pick an increasingly acrimonious fight with the mayor San Juan, its largest city, and to tell Puerto Ricans that the lack of water, food, and electricity they are experiencing is not reality but a fabrication by the news media.
Those words were said by our President, about the people living in Puerto Rico after two hurricanes devastated the island. It is impossible to tell whether this is a conscious racist remark by Trump, or whether it is instinctive. Either way, it is something that no other modern president would have said in public, and that no one who understood the duties of the office could have done.
Trump Says His Tax Plan Won’t Benefit the Rich—He Outright Lied.
When the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center analyzed the proposal, it found that the vast majority of benefits would go to corporations and the top 1 percent of earners.
Trump has exploited divisions for his own gain. Icons such as Ronald Reagan—with his optimism and geniality—have been supplanted by the dark, erratic narcissism of Donald Trump.
If Reagan were alive, he would hardly recognize his party—or the walls it had erected.

About a century ago, when General Motors had first proposed adding lead to gasoline in order to improve performance, scientists were alarmed and urged the government to investigate the public health implications.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn’t the most popular or effective governor of California. He was elected on the promise of reform, and didn’t really accomplish much of note. However, now outside of politics and unhindered by the office, he can say whatever he wants.
The fact that Trump’s remarks send a reaffirming signal to white supremacists will only continue to haunt him in the days and weeks to come, opening him up to the charge that he sympathizes with and enables bigotry and discrimination. It will be a line of attack from which even Republicans will struggle to defend him.
The Confederate monuments that Trump wants to save are stone or bronze depictions of leaders who took up arms against the United States.
Change is opportunity. When technology or market forces cause a sector to rapidly evolve or emerge, this change often presents significant opportunities for savvy investors.

Republicans see women as uncontrollable, brain-dead sexual temptresses who, for the good of the helpless men around them, need to be kept far away from things such as birth control and abortion.

Given that the technology is new and unlike much else in Silicon Valley, can it offer female creators the chance to start from and maintain a level playing field?

The world’s largest retailer said Thursday that online sales soared 60 percent in the past three months as people shopped more at Walmart.com, Jet.com and its other websites.
The world of designer fashion is not for the faint of heart or the light of wallet. From a purse that sells for over $300,000, to torn shoes that look like they are well past ready for the dumpster – selling for almost $1500, the world is full of eccentric people willing to pay exorbitant amounts for their fashion fixes.
But there is one dirty little secret that the fashion aficionados want no-one to know about…
