G2KU: Kirstjen Nielsen. Nikki Haley: the latest Trump enabler to ruin her shot at redemption. Yahoo fait dÃ©sormais partie dâOath. A year ago almost to the day, Vice President Mike Pence arrived at an Indianapolis Colts game against the San Francisco 49ers, ostensibly to watch the Colts honor former franchise QB Peyton Manning.
But when several members of the 49ers knelt during the national anthem, Pence, his wife, and his security team walked out. The move drew praise from the president. Why are Republicans ramming Brett Kavanaugh on to the supreme court? They blocked Barack Obama’s pick for the supreme court.
They threw in their lot with Donald Trump, a political neophyte and TV celebrity facing multiple sexual harassment allegations. If Brett Kavanaugh makes it through, women’s anger will be unstoppable. “Do you want to be arrested?”
The cop asks Amy Schumer. “Yes” she says simply. She was one of the 302 women held after protesting at a Senate office building against the likely confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the US supreme court. DeVos reinstated for-profit college accreditor despite staff objections, report shows.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos earlier this year reinstated an accreditor of for-profit colleges despite findings by her agency’s career staff that the organization failed to meet federal standards, an internal document shows.
The report, released by the Education Department on Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, shows that career department analysts had serious concerns about restoring the federal recognition of the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools just a month before DeVos issued an order reinstating the accreditor’s federal status. Story Continued Below Career analysts wrote in the report that ACICS failed to meet 57 of the 93 criteria that accreditors are required to meet under federal law.

It was 1989 and Outlaw, the Republican mayor of Mobile, Alabama, was girding himself for his re-election campaign. Word was that Lambert Mims, a popular local Democrat, would run against him. Some Republicans were growing skittish. But a close friend of Outlaw’s had something planned. The friend had been president of the state Young Republicans, chairman of the regional GOP, then a senior official in the Mobile County Republican party.

The Downsides of John Kelly's Ascension - The Atlantic. Donald Trump is not much of a man.
He feels sorry for himself, he whines, he gropes women; he bullies the weak. He brags and he lies. As a young man, this self-proclaimed athlete collected five draft deferments rather than wear his country’s uniform. He doesn’t even work out. The motto emblazoned on Trump’s bogus coat of arms should probably be “faithless,” which makes it odd that he has picked as his chief of staff a general steeled in a service whose motto is “ever faithful.” John Kelly, retired Marine four-star and new White House chief of staff, has been throughout his career everything Trump is not: He has endured more than Trump could imagine, and has displayed virtues that Trump may not understand and certainly has not exhibited, among them candor, courage, and discipline.

“Her number one task is to rip and throw out the environmental laws that this whole country has come to accept as standards and norms.” The clouds over the White House loom darker and darker. By now, it’s become abundantly clear that the US government has no interest in science and the environment. Scott Pruitt: EPA Chief Faces Mounting Scrutiny For Ethics Violations.

La David T. The Danger of President Pence. On September 14th, the right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, who last year published a book titled “In Trump We Trust,” expressed what a growing number of Americans, including conservatives, have been feeling since the 2016 election.
