Disgraced former sheriff Joe Arpaio is still a guilty SOB, judge rules  

The racist Joe Arpaio got his precious presidential pardon but it can't erase the fact that he intentionally violated a court order and was convicted for it, a federal judge has decided. Arpaio had petitioned the court to toss out his criminal record after Donald Trump's pardon spared him from a possible six months in the slammer. The judge said nope: In her order Thursday, Phoenix-based U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton rejected arguments from Arpaio's lawyers and Justice Depar...

More questions than answers about Niger attack that left four U.S. soldiers dead  

While there's no serious question that Donald Trump told the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson that "he knew what he signed up for," there are a lot of questions remaining about the attack in which Johnson and three other soldiers were killed. What information lapse allowed their team to be ambushed in unarmored pickup trucks without air support? Why was Johnson's body not recovered for two days after the attack? What exactly is the U.S. mission in Niger, anyway? Rachel Maddow has raised f...

For first time in three years, Gallup survey finds uptick in uninsured rate  

Campaign Action Since 2008, Gallup and Sharecare have been taking quarterly surveys of the uninsured rate. In November, 2016 they recorded a record low rate, at 10.9 percent. But since then? The percentage of U.S. adults lacking health insurance rose in the third quarter of 2017 to 12.3%, up 0.6 percentage points from the previous quarter and 1.4 points since the end of 2016. The uninsured rate is now the highest recorded since the last quarter of 2014 when it was 12.9%. […] Howeve...

Schumer: The Senate just passed 'one of the worst budgets Congress has ever passed'  

Late Thursday night, Senate Republicans passed their non-binding budget resolution, a budget that recommends cutting Medicare by $473 billion and Medicaid by $1 trillion in order to give $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to the wealthy. Oh, and it adds $1.5 trillion to the deficit. That's so Republicans can come back in several years and yell about the deficit and push for more cuts to social insurance programs. The bill passed 51-49, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) the only Republican voting against. ...

Trump's opioid emergency promise came as news to the officials who'd need to make it happen  

It's a fire drill in the Trump administration after Donald Trump promised on Monday that "next week" he'd make an emergency declaration on the opioid crisis. His advisers and the agencies that would have to make an emergency response happen were not and are not ready to do that, and go figure—it's just not that easy: Emergency declarations are typically used to respond to isolated events such as hurricanes and floods, or disease outbreaks. Using one to combat a nationwide epide...

There will be an especially dazzling meteor shower this weekend  

Starwatchers are saying that this year's Orionid meteor shower, which will be at peak visibility this weekend, is set to be particularly dazzling because it'll coincide with low levels of moonlight. The Orionids are actually left-behind fragments of Halley's Comet, which won't be visible from Earth until 2061 (its last appearance was in 1986). Viewers in the eastern and southwestern U.S. will have the clearest skies for meteor-watching; between midnight and dawn is when the meteors will be flyi

A Mississippi school district is removing To Kill A Mockingbird from its curriculum because it 'makes people uncomfortable'  

A Mississippi school district has removed Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird from its eighth-grade curriculum because it "makes people uncomfortable." The book is a harrowing tale of racial injustice in a 1950's Southern town. James LaRue of the American Library Association objected to the removal, saying that the "classic" novel "makes us uncomfortable because it talks about things that matter."

Body cameras don't change police behavior, new study finds

Body cameras similarly had little impact on the occurrence of citizen complaints. The results are a disappointment to both law enforcement and community activists who were hopeful that the technology would help increase police accountability and transparen

Trump keeps covering his 'he knew what he signed up for' lies by attacking Rep. Frederica Wilson  

Two days after Donald Trump insisted it was "totally fabricated" that he told a grieving widow that a soldier killed in an ambush in Niger "knew what he signed up for," we're still waiting for the "proof" he claimed to have that it was a fabrication by Rep. Frederica Wilson. And though that phone call has been a major focus of the past two days, and Trump is tweeting about it again, that proof? Still nowhere to be seen. In fact, during those two days, White House press secreta...

In addition to skewering Wilson for sharing the details of a phone call between President Trump and the widow of a U.S. service member killed in Niger, Kelly claimed Wilson once "talked about

Scientists in Britain found that dogs alter their facial expressions simply when their owners look at them — regardless of whether food is available, per a study published Oct. 19 in the journal Scientific Reports. Researchers monitored the facial expressions of dogs as their owners paid attention to them and then when the owners looked away, specifically examining the muscle that dogs use to raise their eyebrows and wide...

In fairness, he isn't the only one trying to give a big handout to wealthy people. The top priority of Republicans in Congress is cutting taxes. The more you look at the tax "reform" plan, the more ridiculous it appears. Though the tax cut plan is sketchy on details, it appears to be heavily (and I mean heavily) weighted towar...

Voter suppression in Wisconsin directly affected last year's election, Mother Jones investigation finds  

In the 2016 election, President Trump won the state of Wisconsin by almost 23,000 votes. But a new report from Mother Jones published online Thursday found that statewide voter turnout in the Badger State was also the lowest it had been since 2000. Perhaps not coincidentally, the 2016 election was also the first major contest in Wisconsin to require registered voters to bring a current, valid form of state or national identification to the polls — just one of 33 election changes passed under ...

The more than nine million premature deaths from pollution in 2015 primarily took the form of noncommunicable diseases, including asthma and cancer, with lead pollution contributing to half a million deaths on its own. The study warned that if not addressed, pollution "threatens the continuing survival of human societies." Poor popul

Ex-presidents don't make a lot of speeches about current politics, so when they do, it's usually headline-making news. And when an ex-president makes a speech that's intensely critical of a sitting president from his own party, it's understandably an even bigger deal. That's what George W. Bush did on Thursday. Even though he never mentioned Donald Trump by name, his implication was clear. Bush's speech was an eloquent, even inspiring call to a more humane brand of politics — one his party ha...

Carol Dweck, a Stanford University psychologist who is considered the expert on mindset and human behaviors, says there are two core mindsets: a growth mindset and a fixed mindset.

Belgium's gateway to the world  

Each week, we spotlight a dream vacation recommended by some of the industry's top travel writers. This week's pick is Antwerp, Belgium. (Courtesy image) Though you might consider it odd that my first dinner in Antwerp was at a Chinese restaurant, "you'd be wrong," said Will Hawkes at The Washington Post. Belgium's great port city has been defined by its links to the wider world since the 16th century, when it was Europe's richest address. Spain sacked Antwerp in 1576, precipitating a two-centu

Jordan Klepper says the Melania body-double flap is just a distraction from the real scandal in Washington  

This week, for some reason, the internet went crazy over a rumor that first lady Melania Trump has a body double. "Do you have any idea how dumb that sounds?" Jordan Klepper scoffed on Thursday's The Opposition. "Of course Melania has a body double. We free thinkers have known that for years." In fact, "body doubles are everywhere in politics," and have been since Queen Elizabeth I invented them, Klepper said, with much more elaboration and a few examples. But "this Melania body-double thing is

Guerrero-Uribe was in the Marine Corps for eight years, and when he came home from a tour in Iraq, he was depressed and didn't want to talk to anyone.

Former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail on Thursday for Democrats running for governor in New Jersey and Virginia, and told voters to reject the "old politics of division" that date back centuries. "It's the 21st century," he said, "not the 19th century. Come on!" This was his first time out stumping since he left the White House, and Obama warned of people who "demonize" those who don't agree with them in order to "get the base all riled up because it provides a short-term tactica

By the sound of it, families who lost a child or spouse in combat "may start out hoping that the president would reach out, and they end up wishing that they had let his calls go to voicemail," he said, recapping the saga involving Trump's call to the family of Army Sgt.
