The Trump-Kanye-West Lunch
New York Sun, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/11/2018 7:35:34 PM

(Video) - Call it Trump meets the Yeezy Effect — the president’s astounding rendezvous with Kanye West. The rapper sat in the Oval Office on the visitor’s side of the Resolute Desk, across from the leader of the Free World. Suddenly Mr. West went into an epic, 10-minute rant in favor of Trump style capitalism and all that it could mean for minorities in this country. Drudge was all over it. What an only-in-the-Trump-Era moment. It started with Mr. West challenging the notion that if one is black one has to be a Democrat. He then attributed that notion to the welfare system. Then he started talking about Chiraq, the sobriquet for

In annual ranking of worst

The word “password” and the numbers "123456” are yet again the most commonly used passwords, according to an annual ranking of the worst passwords to use by software company SplashData. But another password made the list for the first time this year: “donald.” SplashData analyzed more than 5 million passwords that were leaked on the Internet, and just like the seven previous years the company has reviewed the data, people continue to set predictable, easy-to-guess passwords that rely on strings of letters and numbers that are close to each other on computer keyboards, according to a news release.

Washington - The Environmental Protection Agency´s employees do not appear thrilled with the direction of their department. (Snip) All of the separate offices within the EPA also reported decreases in worker engagement. Their former leader, Scott Pruitt, was forced to resign after series of ethical scandals. The agency´s new director, former coal lobbyist Andrew Wheeler, has continued the dismantling of numerous environmental regulations. Elsewhere around Washington´s federal workforce, there were also signs of discontent. The decline at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was among the most notable examples

Virgin Galactic has reached the edge of space for the first time, in a milestone accomplishment for Richard Branson´s space tourism endeavors. The aerospace firm´s SpaceShipTwo craft reached a boundary more than 50 miles above Earth on Thursday morning after blasting off on a critical flight test in the Mojave Desert. To do this, the company had to push its rocket motor to the longest burn duration yet, ´resulting in us going higher than we have before.´ Virgin Galactic´s WhiteKnightTwo mothership took off shortly after 10 a.m. (ET) from the Mojave airstrip carrying SpaceShipTwo.

The outlook for a second Washington-Pyongyang summit is dimming amid an escalation of diplomatic XXX-for-tat, after the U.S. imposed sanctions on three ranking North Korean officials Monday. The U.S. Treasury Department cited "serious human rights abuse and censorship" as reasons for the sanctions on the North´s de facto No. 2 figure, Choe Ryong-hae. The two others are State Security Minister Jong Kyong-thaek and Pak Kwang-ho, director of the Workers´ Party´s propaganda department. The decision drew a strong backlash from the North, as this is the first time the U.S. has imposed human rights sanctions against

A letter discovered late Monday in a building at Cal State Northridge that threatens a mass shooting this week has prompted police to boost patrols on campus. A student found the letter, written in red ink on lined notebook paper, folded up on the floor of a classroom. The student called campus police about 11:44 p.m. after he read it, said Cal State Northridge Police Chief Anne Glavin. The letter is laced with profanity and warns of a shooting on the campus on Wednesday. The letter also threatens that students from Northridge Academy High School will carry out a similar attack on their campus. “The teachers and proffessors

Writers and editors at Slate have voted nearly unanimously to green-light a strike, escalating tensions between the digital publication and its newly unionized employees. Slate’s editorial employees authorized the potential strike by a vote of 52 to 1, according to a spokesman for the Writers Guild of America – East, and are now weighing when they may walk off the job. Along with stronger diversity policies and cost of living increases, the union wants the company to back off its insistence on making union fees optional, the kind of “right-to-work” policy loathed by liberals and organized labor. “We just feel that it’s a total and absolute

If Hezbollah dares confront Israel it will receive an unimaginable blow, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as Jerusalem’s crisis with Moscow over Syria’s downing of a Russian plane triggered an unusual “war of words” with terrorist leader Hassan Nasrallah. Speaking on Thursday at a Bible study group that he holds a several times a year at his residence, Netanyahu referred to comments Nasrallah made earlier in the day that Hezbollah already has the precision missiles Israel is trying to prevent Iran from transferring via Syria. “I heard the words that came from the direction of Hezbollah, and they came from the

After a mysterious hole in the International Space Station (ISS) caused a rift between the U.S. and Russia, some cosmonauts will take to space on Tuesday to investigate it. Two Russian cosmonauts will conduct a space walk outside the ISS on Tuesday to inspect the area where the hole was discovered in August, according to the AP. The leak, which was quickly plugged with only a small pressure loss, was found in the area where a Russian Soyuz craft attached to the side of the ISS. Soon after the leak was discovered, Russia’s Roscosmos chief Dmitry Rogozin issued a statement that suggested American astronauts working in the area

Doing Sudoku and crosswords won´t stop
dementia or mental decline, study suggests
Independent [UK], by Chiara Giordano    Original Article

Regularly doing puzzles like Sudoku will not protect the mind from dementia, researchers have found. The idea of “use it or lose it” and doing problem-solving activities such as crosswords has been widely accepted as a way of protecting brains from cognitive decline in later life. However, researchers have found that while doing this throughout life could boost mental ability and give a person a “higher starting point” from which to decline, it would not necessarily help prevent age-related mental decline or dementia. (Snip) No studies have so far shown that brain training prevents dementia.

By now, Julia Roberts is totally used to media outlets sucking up to her, but an Upstate NY newspaper took it to the next level -- inadvertently -- with a headline praising her holes. Seriously ... this is NOT photoshopped. The Post-Journal in Jamestown, NY topped a Saturday article about Julia and her Amazon show, "Homecoming," with ... "Julia Roberts Finds Life And Her Holes Get Better With Age." Awesome news for Julia, right? Well, the paper copped to making a huge spelling error. It published a correction saying it was supposed to say her "Roles" are what´s getting better. Woulda been pretty awesome,

Brussels - U.S. President Donald Trump’s top diplomat promised on Tuesday a new democratic world order in which Washington will strengthen or jettison international agreements as it sees fit to stop “bad actors” such as Russia, China and Iran from gaining. In a twist on Trump’s “America First” policy, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump was not abandoning its global leadership but instead reshaping the post-World War Two system on the basis of sovereign states, not multilateral institutions. “In the finest traditions of our great democracy, we are rallying the noble nations to build a new liberal order

Donald Trump´s suffocating presence

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee amid suspicion that a portion of the $107 million it raised was misspent, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”The Journal reports: The investigation partly arises out of materials seized in the federal probe of former Trump

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren admitted on Friday that she is not a person of color, despite recently seeking to prove that she has Native American ancestry. In October, Warren released a DNA test in an attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s many attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry. The test results showed that she has a Native American ancestor “in the range of 6–10 generations ago.” But during a commencement address at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday, Warren made clear that she does not consider herself a person of color. “I’m not a person of

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives. But there’s a problem: According to a new study, we might not have enough materials to make that happen. Plenty of high-tech electronic components, like solar panels, rechargeable batteries, and complex circuits, require specific rare metals.

The Chief Justice of California’s Supreme Court announced on Thursday that she had left the Republican Party following the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. California Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye told CALmatters that she had been deliberating her decision for a while but made up her mind after watching the backlash following multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from Palo Alto, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.

A federal judge in Texas late Friday threw the health coverage of some 20 million Americans in limbo by ruling Obamacare must be scrapped because Congress struck the penalty for failing to obtain insurance coverage. The invalidation of the landmark 2010 law is certain to send shock waves through the U.S. health system and Washington after a midterm election seen in part as a rebuke to Republican efforts to tear down Obamacare.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags
