“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.”

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.
“People with a political agenda clearly have their eye on two of the most influential of the magazines in America.”
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.
More than 10,000 people have died since the eastern Ukraine conflict erupted in April 2014, when Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula. The fighting has displaced more than 1.6 million people. Yet, since Trump’s election, concern about this conflict has vanished.
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.
Mexican girls as young as 11 are being forced into marriage, according to a report by the United Nations.
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.
Mark your calendars: November 21, 2017 – the day the Internet died. For on that day, the Federal Communications Commission announced that it planned to dismantle landmark regulations that ensure equal access to the internet, clearing the way for companies to charge more and block access to some websites.
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.

Neuroscientists find chronic stress skews decisions toward higher-risk options.
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.

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.

Following the devastating Category 5 Hurricane Irma and now powerful Hurricane Maria, many travelers are concerned about their future holiday plans and what the effect has had at their favorite resorts.

“Thank God for life” is a common everyday expression on Tortola, the largest of the British Virgin Islands.

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.
In many ways, the Trump presidency never got off the ground: The president’s legislative agenda is going nowhere, his relations with foreign leaders are frayed, and his approval rating with the American people never enjoyed the honeymoon period most newly elected presidents do.
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.

Like a child, Trump flexed his presidential muscles in another inappropriate manner by removing the bike share program started by his predecessor, President Obama.

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.

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…

One of the biggest reasons that it’s so hard for facts to change people’s minds is that people have an incentive to keep believing what they already believe, especially if it’s a belief that’s deeply tied to their identity.
The mental gymnastics they do to achieve this are known in psychology as “motivated reasoning.” It’s something that’s extremely hard to get around.
The United States has never had a Senate leader as ruthless, as willing to bend, distort and break the rules, traditions and precedents of the Senate as Mitch McConnell.
This bill will take American healthcare back to what everyone in the U.S. should recognize was a completely broken system before the Affordable Care Act. It will take the country back to a system in which companies often profited not by how well they provided healthcare but by how well they discriminated against or screened out those who faced the most challenges.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway insisted on Sunday that the Senate health care bill “would not make cuts to Medicaid,” regardless of projections that suggest the program will be cut by over $800 billion.
Recently, after a month of breathless speculation, former FBI director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about the events leading up to his abrupt and dubiously-justified termination by President Trump. And, according to the good people at PornHub, users in the District Columbia streamed significantly less pornographic material than they usually do at that time.
While the current administration seems unlikely to invest in any jobs programs – especially ones that primarily benefit the working poor – they would create long term benefits by having these workers successfully transition to the new retail economy.
Early in Donald Trump’s presidency, the self-declared “Greatest jobs president God ever created” rattled a rhetorical saber at companies he felt were threatening to offshore production and, in the process, lay off American workers.
But now, his rhetoric, once again, runs contrary to the truth.
Proving once again that there is no shortage of idiots in America, one of the jurors from Bill Cosby’s trial is coming forward with some reasons why he voted to acquit Cosby – and his position appears to have contributed to last week’s mistrial.

Google has released designs for a new 11-story, 1 million-square-foot headquarters in London near King’s Cross railway station, complete with a sprawling, landscaped rooftop garden.

This may just be the ugliest building ever designed.
When a sentence starts out, “I can definitively say the president is not a liar,” as was proclaimed by Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday, you know things are looking grim.
Here are the key points:
