  • For some millennials, climate change clock ticks louder than biological one

    SEATTLE — Erika Lundahl writes and performs her own songs. She works in Seattle for a company that publishes books on the environment. She thinks a lot about how best to occupy her place in the world. Yet, despite this full life, Lundahl, at 27, feels a clock ticking. Her biological clock, yes, but also the one to fix global warming, or face the likelihood that she and her potential children will have to live in a seriously marginalized world. “There is this sense that if you don’t have kids soon, you could be putting them in a harder position,”...
  • Chuck Todd Grills Nadler: Why Haven’t Dems Started Trump’s Impeachment

    It might be safe to say that NBC political director Chuck Todd was invested in or, at least, very eager to have Democrats start actively chasing down President Trump via impeachment. After seemly trying to goad Congressional Democrats into starting an impeachment case earlier on Sunday, Todd grilled Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) during Meet the Press on why he and party leadership had not done more to get rid of Trump. Before getting to the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Todd gave viewers a crash course in what the Special Counsel investigation found. And in true Chuck Todd-fashion, he put his...
  • Matthews Leads Motley Crew Defending Trump Campaign Spying, Insists Mueller Found Collusion

    In the first 15 minutes of Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews and an assembled crew of cringeworthy guests to defend the Obama administration’s surveillance of the Trump campaign under the guise of alleged Russian collusion (built in part on some dubious beginnings) while decrying the use of the word “spying.” And for good measure, guests (separately) asserted that collusion still occurred even if nothing was criminal and Attorney General Bill Barr doesn’t deserve to be referred to as attorney general because he’s already decided to ignore disregard America’s commitment to the rule of law. Matthews led off the show...

    More than 3,500 Amazon employees have signed a letter urging the e-commerce giant to take action on climate change, adding to growing activism by technology workers directed at their companies. The letter, published Wednesday on the blogging platform Medium, calls for Amazon to publicly detail how it plans to handle disruption brought on by climate change and reduce its dependence on fossil fuels. "Amazon has the resources and scale to spark the world’s imagination and redefine what is possible and necessary to address the climate crisis. We believe this is a historic opportunity for Amazon to stand with employees and...

    Attorney General William Barr told the Senate on Wednesday that he believed the Obama administration did, in fact, spy on President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Democrats and their media allies howled in outrage and derision. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Barr “is going off the rails.” NBC News’ Chuck Todd said that Barr “gave credence to a factless conspiracy theory.” But Barr merely confirmed what is already known. As conservative radio host Mark Levin and Breitbart News pointed out in March 2017, based solely on reporting by the mainstream media itself (using leaks from law...
  • Why much of the country is headed for $4 gas

    04/08/2019 5:25:45 PM PDT · by John W · 91 replies ^ | April 8, 2019 | Martha C. Wright
    A consortium of oil-producing countries has taken more than a million barrels a day off the market — and that’s the least of the problems plaguing American gasoline prices. Across the U.S., regular gas averaged $2.77 a gallon, up 7 cents on the week and 29 cents on the month, according to GasBuddy. Last year, gas prices topped out at $2.98 at the outset of Memorial Day weekend. Oil prices are climbing, but that only accounts for about one-quarter of the recently higher gas prices American drivers have been facing. A bigger issue is that this is around the time...

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Mitt Romney called House Democrats’ move to get President Trump’s tax returns “moronic” during a sit-down Sunday on “Meet the Press.” “I’d like the president to follow through and show his tax returns,” said Romney, who has been critical of Trump in the past. “But I have to also tell you, I think the Democrats are just playing along his handbook, which is going after his tax returns through a legislative action – it’s moronic. That’s not going to happen.” The Utah Republican told NBC’s Chuck Todd that he believed the courts would strike the Democrats’ action...
  • Trump got no bounce from Mueller. That leaves him a narrow path to re-election.

    For President Donald Trump, it may prove to be the bounce that never comes. On the afternoon of March 24, the news broke that special counsel Robert Mueller had found no collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russians — a moment for which the president and his allies had been waiting almost two years. But a week later, Trump's average approval rating, according to the Real Clear Politics tracker, had climbed a grand total of one-tenth of one percentage point — to 43.2 percent from 43.1 percent. You could argue, of course, that Americans are reserving judgment. The complete Mueller...

    A reporter is accusing the managing editor of NBC News and MSNBC’s political coverage of trying to "intimidate” him into spiking a story about the Democratic National Committee in a chilling phone conversation that he says had her acting as a political operative and not a fellow journalist. Yashar Ali, a high-profile freelance journalist whose work has appeared in the Huffington Post and New York magazine, said he was so taken aback by his conversation with Dafna Linzer, who has held the key NBC position since October 2015, that he posted his synopsis of it in a series of tweets...

    Race was front and center on Wednesday night during a meeting coordinated to garner support for just one black candidate in Savannah’s mayoral election. With signs stating “Black press only” on the doors of the church where the meeting was held, white reporters were barred from entry, while black reporters for at least two television stations were permitted inside. The event was coordinated by the Rev. Clarence Teddy Williams, owner of the consulting firm, The Trigon Group, who declined to discuss the entry policy. Former Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson declined to comment before going inside, as did Chatham County Commissioner...

    A report in Huffington Post recently revealed the case of Wikipedia editor Ed Sussman, who was paid by media clients such as NBC and Axios to help diminish critical material. Paid editors operating in a similar manner to Sussman have worked on behalf of CNN contributor Hilary Rosen and the CEOs of Reddit and Intel, among other clients. Other conduct by Sussman not covered by the Huffington Post shows him authoring fluff pieces for NBC executives and getting his proposed changes approved by another paid Wikipedia editor.

    The national Sunday morning talk shows blamed President Trump for the New Zealand massacre that left 50 dead. CNN’s Jake Tapper warned: “I don’t think moderate Republicans are doing enough to hold President Trump accountable for his rhetoric.” NBC’s Chuck Todd noted supposed parallels to the killer’s rhetoric, and asked: “When the president uses the term ‘invaders,’ does that dehumanize to the point where it can get misused?”

    NBC intelligence and national security analyst Ken Dilanian said Friday night just because there wasn't a crime it does not mean there's not a scandal. Dilanian said Trump may have committed "impeachable" offenses "depending on the facts" and what is in the report by special counsel Robert Mueller. However, earlier this year Dilanian reported the Senate Intel Committee probe found no evidence of Russian collusion in the Trump presidential campaign. (snip) MSNBC host Chris Matthews lamented how he is "unsettled" that the Mueller probe did not result in any indictments on Russian collusion. "What if the Mueller report finds that...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand officially entered the ever-growing pool of Democratic presidential hopefuls Sunday, ending the two-month-long exploratory phase of her campaign saying she’s running for the White House to make “big, bold, brave choices.” “Our anthem asks a question, forcing every generation to make a choice,” Gillibrand says in a video released Sunday morning. “Will brave win? Let’s answer for ours." **SNIP** After Sunday’s video announcement, Gillibrand heads to Michigan on Monday for an MSNBC town hall with Chris Hayes; to Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday; and to Nevada on Thursday. She’ll then cap off...

    How would Adam Schiff know? Robert Mueller may soon bring his special-counsel probe to a close, and it appears that the end will come without Donald Trump getting interrogated in person — either in a deposition or in a grand-jury proceeding. The House Intelligence Committee chair told Chuck Todd on yesterday’s Meet the Press that Mueller’s making a mistake in letting Trump off the hook with only written responses: CHUCK TODD:You know, it looks like, we don’t know this for sure. But it looks like Robert Mueller’s going to complete his investigation without subpoenaing the president before the grand...

    O n Friday morning I was sitting alone gumming a bowl of oatmeal in the breakfast area of a Hampton Inn in Pontiac, Illinois, when I was assaulted by an absurdity on the widescreen TV. There I was, calmly minding my own business, keeping my big mouth shut for a change, opening it only for the next scoop of tastelessness. Just then, a group of maniacs from the Today show ruined my tranquility by babbling obliviously and ecstatically about International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day? Seriously? Had I slipped back in time a hundred years ago to, er, Leningrad, March...

    In a few weeks, Jews all over the world will sit down to a Passover seder. We will eat matzah—unleavened bread that was not baked with the blood of Christian children. The claim that matzah is baked with the blood of Christian innocents is, of course, a famous anti-Semitic libel; it’s a libel that’s anti-Semitic because, first and foremost, it’s false (and ugly). If it were true, it wouldn’t be anti-Semitic to say such a thing. Telling ugly lies about the Jewish people is anti-Semitic, and it’s anti-Semitic, first and foremost, because it’s a lie.
