Paul Ryan says he's already set to tackle health care again, and GOP donors will get a first look  

Maybe rumors of the American Health Care Act's death were exaggerated a bit. After House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) pulled the bill on Friday because his broadly unpopular health-care overhaul plan didn't have enough Republican votes to pass, he called ObamaCare "the law of the land" for the visible future and the White House said it is ready to move on to tax reform and other issues. On Monday afternoon, however, Ryan told a group of donors that he will continue to push forward on health care

Devin Nunes says he won't step down as chair of House Intelligence Committee  

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told reporters Monday he won't give in to demands from Democratic leaders that he recuse himself from the House's Russia investigation. Nunes said he has no plans to step down, adding, "Everything is politics here," reports Voice of America's Katherine Gypson. Nunes then appeared on The O'Reilly Factor, and told host Bill O'Reilly, "I'm sure the Democrats do want me to quit because they know I'm quite effective at ge

Stephen Colbert has some choice words about Jared Kushner, and for FBI chief James Comey  

"Washington is a mess right now, but that's going to end soon," Stephen Colbert joked on Monday's Late Show. "Because the White House just announced that Trump's son-in-law and leader of the preppie camp across the lake, Jared Kushner, will oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government. And the government desperately needs overhaul; I mean, somebody keeps putting totally unqualified people in charge of really important stuff." He didn't name any names, exactly. "Kushner will become

Seth Meyers sharply deflates President Trump's dealmaking pretensions  

On Monday's Late Night, Seth Meyers showed a devastating highlight reel of President Trump bragging about his dealmaking prowess on the campaign trail. "Health care was the first test of Trump's supposed dealmaking skills, and it went up in flames," he noted. Trump's team is explaining his "inability to get a deal done" by insisting that Washington is more "broken" than Trump had assumed, Meyers said, and that "the man who claimed he could fix Washington had done everything he could to get a de

Tropical Cyclone Debbie roared across northeast Australia on Tuesday, and was classified as a category four when it made landfall in Airlie Beach. "It's very noisy," witness Jan Clifford in Airlie Beach told Reuters. "Screaming, howling wind, sounds like a freight train." In addition to strong winds and gusts that have reached more than 160 mph, the rain is coming down hard, and there are reports of damage to homes. Thousands of people are also without power.

Firefighter uses CPR to save dog found in burning apartment  

When firefighter Andrew Klein responded to a blaze at an apartment in Santa Monica, California, last week, he found a dog that wasn't breathing. "I discovered him amid all the smoke and the heat," he told ABC Los Angeles. "I grabbed him and as soon as I grabbed him, I knew that he was unresponsive just by his dead weight." Klein began to give him CPR, and didn't give up until, 20 minutes later, the dog — a 10-year-old rescue named Nalu — was revived. Nalu made a quick recovery, and

Stephen Colbert has some fun with Trump outsourcing his Paul Ryan-bashing to Jeanine Pirro  

Stephen Colbert was somewhere drinking rum last week, despite his cleverly pretaped shows, he admitted on Monday's Late Show. "What a great time to have been away from the show — nothing happened while I was gone, right?" he deadpanned. He showed some cartoonishly disturbing "footage" of the GOP effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare, then got down to the business of political comedy. "So, on Friday, lacking the votes they needed, they folded the ObamaCare repeal and placed it in the cabi

Trump's late-night tweet storm focuses on the Clintons, House Freedom Caucus, and hoaxes  

If you read President Trump's latest tweets and set aside a quarter for every time he says "Russia," you'll have enough money to buy a used copy of The Art of the Deal. In the first of a series of tweets sent Monday night, Trump said he thought an investigation into Russian ties to the United States was a good idea, so long as the focus was on the only name he utters more than his own — Hillary Clinton.

Burglars trot off with 221-pound coin in the thick of night  

Thieves have stolen a 221-pound gold coin from the Bode Museum in Berlin, Time reports. The heist (and heft) took place overnight, and police unsurprisingly suspect it was the work of multiple burglars. The "Big Maple Leaf," as the coin is known, is worth more than $4 million due to the amount of gold in it. The coin was issued by the Royal Canadian Mint ("because we can") and features an image of Queen Elizabeth II on one side and a maple leaf on the reverse. It is more than 20 inches wide. T

North Carolina's controversial bathroom bill could cost the state nearly $4 billion

The malfunctioning Republican Party  

The grand Republican plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare was yanked from the House floor Friday, just before it was to be voted on. The reason the bill, called the American Health Care Act, failed so spectacularly is that despite much last-minute whipping from President Trump, the votes simply were not there. This leads to one overwhelming and unavoidable conclusion: The Republican Party is broken. In the frictionless world of political science, a healthy political party is supposed to advocat

But it's still just one win in a much bigger fight.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday demanded an end to sanctuary cities, saying such policies "cannot continue." "When cities and states continue to refuse to help enforce our immigration laws, our nation is less safe," Sessions said. He added: "Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended." Sessions went on to say that the Department of Justice would look to "claw back" grants from jurisdictions that do not comply with federal authorit

Will Trump put the brakes on fuel standards?  

The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web: President Trump is granting automakers "their top wish," said Bill Vlasic at The New York Times. While visiting Detroit last week, Trump pledged to reopen a government review of the strict fuel efficiency standards set by the Obama administration in 2012. The rules, "a pillar of President Obama's climate change legacy," require automakers to almost double the average fuel economy for new cars and trucks to

To install an implant, surgeons must drill "a 2.5-millimeter-wide tunnel through a chunk of skull surrounded by facial and taste nerves," a risky procedure that often results in pat

If you didn't like the Christian right, you'll really hate the post-Christian right  

The world is still digesting what the Trump phenomenon means. One common way to understand President Trump's rise is as the Europeanization of the American right. Trump's economic nationalism, blood-and-soil patriotism, and authoritarianism had more to do with Marine Le Pen than with Ronald Reagan. But Trump's rise heralds a deeper and, I believe, more significant way in which the American right — indeed, American society at large — has become more "European": secularism. The rise of religi...
