E&E News reported Friday that San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman told the publication Zinke disclosed his plans during a meeting with the commission earlier this month. Like We got a chance to visit with [Zinke]in his office, and our message was that wed like to see Bears Ears National Monument rescinded, Lyman reportedly told E&E. He said, Well, let me tell you what Im thinking: Not only should that monument be rescinded, but were not going to stop there.

3 Filipina-American Journalists Discuss ‘My Family’s Slave’ And Who Gets To Judge It

Comments are off for this post.
Tizons personal essay, which detailed his life with a woman he first knew as Lola and eventually identified as his familys slave, quickly went viral. Then, Filipinos began speaking up for themselves in an attempt to explain a culture that many felt the rest of the world simply could not understand. And, more pointedly, who gets to tell Filipinos how their stories should be told? So we took our conversation to Slack, a group chat app used in many workplaces. Before you fully dive into the chats, here is a bit on our respective backgrounds: Dzana Ashworth, a HuffPost video [...]

Here’s Why Democrats Are Not Storming The Gates, Demanding Impeachment

Comments are off for this post.
That leaves out a lot, but just from those facts, some Republicans are starting to use the word Watergate to describe the scope of unfolding revelations about Trump. Im not there, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) told reporters Wednesday. I just want to get the information. President Donald Trump waves as he walks across the White House South Lawn before departing for Groton, Connecticut, on Wednesday. Democrats don't appear to be ready for the hard push to impeach. It might seem like a surprisingly reticent approach for a party that could stand to benefit politically. But Democrats are also looking at history and [...]

Elizabeth Warren Has A Real Plan To Drain The Swamp In Washington

Comments are off for this post.
Other lawmakers and policy experts gathered at Washingtons Four Seasons Hotel focused on defending the Barack Obama-era status quo against President Donald Trumps onslaught, rather than on proposing ambitious new ideas. In her scathing remarks, Warren portrayed a Washington compromised by the largesse of big corporations and the ultra-rich long before Trump came to power. The former bankruptcy law professor and originator of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau decried the armies of lobbyists that blanket the capital like a plague of locusts to shape legislation and the corporations that bury public servants in an avalanche of nonsense in their efforts [...]

Keith Olbermann: Trump May Have Committed 6 Crimes In A Single Week

Comments are off for this post.
In his latest Resistance webcast for GQ, the political commentator said Trump has benefited from the fact that the issues around suspected ties to Russia are complicated and confusing. Donald Trump has now eliminated his own benefit of the confusion, Olbermann said. The Trump-Russia cover-up case is now about threatening people and firing people and pressuring people to keep them from investigating you and your colleagues. The smoke doesnt matter anymore, Olbermann warned. Who needs Russian smoke when the White House is on fire?

South Korea Has A New President, But His Hot Bodyguard Is Stealing The Show

Comments are off for this post.
And thats all well and good, but theres someone in the new presidents camp who is causing a different type of scandal. Even in the attractive presidential bunch, Chois smoldering good looks have captured the internets heart. Kim Kyung Hoon / Reuters The way hes always photographed staring sternly into the crowd makes for the perfect inspiration for fan fiction. No one seemed to mind the additional eye-candy, but, sadly, thats all that Choi can ever be for most people. Koreas Special Warfare Command told the Korea Times that Choi is unfortunately married and has two daughters. Thank you, President [...]
