CBS wasted no time in kicking David Letterman to the curb. ?Just hours after Letterman said farewell after 33 years on late-night TV, Ed Sullivan Theater crews hauled off blocks of blue stage and hacked up pieces of the iconic New York City bridges that made up the set of the “Late Show?.” Fans and passers-by gathered around a police barricade cordoning off the Ed Sullivan to watch workers unceremoniously chuck red theater chairs into an overflowing Dumpster and ?take reciprocating saws to his miniature Brooklyn Bridge. “It’s an end of an era,” commented onlooker Alex Lafreniere, 24, a fan visiting from Oklahoma.

Obama wins trade victory in the Senate

President Obama won a big victory for his trade agenda Friday with the Senate’s approval of fast-track legislation that could make it easier for him to complete a wide-ranging trade deal that would include 11 Pacific Rim nations. A coalition of nearly 50 Senate Republicans and more than 10 Democrats voted for Trade Promotion Authority late Friday, sending the legislation to the House for a difficult fight as Obama faces more entrenched opposition from Democrats. The Senate coalition fought off several attempts by opponents to undermine the legislation, defeating amendments that were politically popular but potentially poisonous to Obama’s bid to

Disgraced NBC news anchor Brian Williams, who was brought down when it was revealed he lied about his experience in a war zone, has pulled out of hosting an awards show for military veterans and families. Williams, who has been suspended from the network since February, said he didn´t want to be a ´distraction´ from the inaugural Lincoln Awards, which will air Friday on PBS. Instead, First Lady Michelle Obama has stepped in and agreed to film an introduction for the show, which will honor people and groups that help veteran and military families. The concert was filmed in January

Robert M. Gates, president of the Boy Scouts of America, said Thursday that the organization´s ban on gay leaders "cannot be sustained" and urged the group to end its national ban. "I truly fear that any other alternative will be the end of us as a national movement," the former CIA director and secretary of Defense said in remarks in Atlanta at the Scouts´ annual national meeting. He recommended giving local Scout groups the authority to decide whether to allow gay Scout leaders. "We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be,” Gates

Speaking today at a Washington, D.C. synagogue, President Obama called himself an "honorary member of the tribe." "Earlier this week, I was actually interviewed by one of your members, Jeff Holdberg. And Jeff reminded me that he once called me the first Jewish president," Obama said to light laughter. "Now, since some people still seem to be wondering about my faith -- I should make clear this was an honorary title, but I as flattered. And as an honorary member of the tribe, not to mention somebody whe´s hosted seven White House seders ... and been advised by two Jewish chiefs

Meat — despite popular movements to decrease the amount humans consume — is still a central part of diets around the world. [Snip] But the reality is that there are several downsides to society´s growing appetite for meat. [Snip] But what if there were a way to produce meat that would avail us of the need to slaughter animals? What if we could continue to order hamburgers without also feeding the livestock industry as much as a third of the world´s grain production? And what if it could be done for a reasonable price?

Another reason why Hillary Clinton

Anti-Hillary Clinton political ads are writing themselves on a weekly basis. The latest source is this New York Times report that Hillary’s private email account contained sensitive information. The official name for the information is “sensitive but unclassified” (SBU). What sensitive but unclassified information did Hillary have in her private account. According to the Times, “that information included the whereabouts and travel plans of American officials in Libya as security there deteriorated during the uprising against the leadership of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi in 2011.” Considering the fate of Christopher Stevens the following year, it’s safe to say that this information was, indeed,

Finally, President Obama addressed what he sees as the nation´s worst security threat, just days after the fall of Ramadi to ISIS and North Korea´s declaration that it has miniaturized a nuclear warhead to fit on an ICBM capable of reaching the United States. In a speech to graduates at the Coast Guard Academy, Obama said, yes, yes, terrorism is a grave danger. But there´s another one. "We cannot, and we must not, ignore a peril that can affect generations," the commander-in-chief declared ominously. That threat? Global warming.

Politics has a well-known revolving door, with candidates often rehiring consultants, strategists and vendors as they move from one campaign to the next. But for Republican presidential contender Carly Fiorina, that might not be so easy. Twelve of about 30 people who worked on Fiorina’s failed 2010 California Senate campaign, most speaking out for the first time, told Reuters they would not work for her again. Fiorina, once one of America´s most powerful businesswomen, is now campaigning for the Republican nomination in 2016. The reason: for more than four years, Fiorina - who has an estimated net worth of up to $120

…Police are struggling to stop violence in West Baltimore, where officers have been routinely surrounded by dozens of people, video cameras and hostility while doing basic police work since the death of Freddie Gray, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W.

The Boy Scouts of America will no longer seek to revoke the charters of chapters that accept gay adult leaders, the organization´s president, Robert Gates, told its national leadership on Thursday. “The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained,” Gates said during the BSA´s annual national meeting in Atlanta. The organization took no formal action on its current policy to ban gay adult leaders, but Gates said the group can no longer "ignore growing internal challenges to our current membership policy." “Nor can we ignore the social, political and juridical changes taking place in our country –

Wrapping up a segment dealing with fresh revelations from newly-released Hillary Clinton emails pertaining to Benghazi, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews on Thursday night dutifully spun that Hillary´s "secretive" nature was not a drawback but may in fact be a net positive, comparing her to "secretive" and "manipulative" FDR, who, in Matthews´s estimation, was America´s best president of the 20th century, if not the entire history of the Republic. Here´s the relevant transcript. MSNBC- Hardball-May 21, 2015-7:24 p.m. Eastern -CHRIS MATTHEWS: I think that [Bloomberg TV] focus group is fascinating. Because, it seems to me there is something -- Franklin
