Advertisement Supported by Political Memo ByJennifer Steinhauer Aug 16, 2019 WASHINGTON — Has no one told these people about the free candy? When former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado dropped out of the presidential race on Thursday, he made a point of noting that people were all but begging him to run for the Senate. Mr. Hickenlooper, who had previously dismissed a Senate run, said he would now give the idea “some serious thought,” evincing all the enthusiasm of a bride mulling boiled versus baked potatoes for the reception. The fact that a currently underemployed Democrat who was at 0 to 1 percent in the polls is now treating a chance to serve in the most elite legislative body in the country as a massive booby prize is a remarkable … [Read more...] about Why Are These Democrats Too Good for the Senate?
Prison architect why are my guards pissed off
0 Have your say Johnson and Rees Mogg, turncoat architects of Brexit, are escaping the wrath of the public, but why, asks Lesley Riddoch Britain is approaching the perfect political storm this week and every new course to avoid a hard Brexit looks hazardous for a captain with shaky navigational skills and even less ability to consult the crew. Many questions will be raised over the days ahead, but one sits unasked. Why isn’t the voting public furious with the Tory politicians responsible for creating the nightmare of Brexit? Sure, public anger is on display, but it’s generally directed towards MPs working across party divides – Anna Soubry who can’t go home because of death threats, Joanna “Revoke” Cherry recently called a “bitch” outside Parliament and Dominic “ashamed of being Tory” Grieve, now facing de-selection by his constituency association.

Illustrative Image — 24hnews.vn By Hồng Minh When your phone rings and the number of the caller identified is your child’s school, most parents’ hearts will skip a beat. Thankfully, the majority of the calls mums and dads get from teachers are all fairly routine, mundane issues. Worse case most of the time is maybe your child has slipped in the playground. Grazed a knee perhaps, or suffered a bump on the head. Nothing that can’t be fixed with an Elastoplast or a little TLC. Last week cells phones belonging to parents of children at one kindergarten in the northern province of Bắc Ninh would have been buzzing like crazy. These calls were not coming from the school, but other, anxious parents. Rumours of problems with food at the school had spread like, well, like a contagious disease. Photographs of contaminated meat were being passed around, and parents had reason to be concerned. One child confirmed ill, then another. Then another and … [Read more...] about You are what you eat, which is why are children must eat right
Actor Jussie Smollett said in a new interview that he is angry at people who don’t “want to see the truth” about an alleged racial attack that he claims to be a victimized of. “I’m pissed off…It’s the attackers, but it’s also the attacks,” Jussie Smollett told ABC Good Morning America host Robin Roberts.He continued, “It’s like, you know, at first it was a thing of like, listen, if I tell the truth then, that’s it, because it’s the truth. Then it became a thing of, like, oh, how can you doubt that?” “Like, how can you not believe that? It’s the truth. Then it became a thing of, like, oh, it’s not necessarily that you don’t believe that this is the truth. You don’t even want to see the truth.” The actor also cries at one point in the interview. Smollett, who stars in the FOX television show Empire, made national headlines last month for claiming to be attacked by two … [Read more...] about Jussie Smollett: ‘I’m Pissed Off’ At People Who Don’t Believe I Was Attacked
Cleve R. Wootson Jr., The Washington Post Published 1:07 pm PST, Sunday, January 6, 2019 With the federal government shutdown solidly into its third week, there is no shortage of hypocritical or ironic or just plain sad moments to further enrage apoplectic taxpayers: There are the overflowing port-a-potties and trash cans at national parks, reports of Vice President Mike Pence's scheduled $10,000 pay raise, shuttered Smithsonian museums and the image of a relaxed-looking Nancy Pelosi vacationing at a Hawaiian resort where rooms top out north of $5,000 a night. Joe Rojas, a union leader and a guard at Florida's Coleman Federal Correctional Complex, would like to add another scene to the growing list: an unpaid federal prison employee, working on New Year's Day, serving a steak supper to convicted murderers, gang members and terrorists. For inmates at Coleman, New Year's Day lunch was grilled steak, steamed rice with gravy, black-eyed peas, green beans, macaroni and … [Read more...] about Federal prisoners served steak by unpaid guards during shutdown
