LOS ANGELES, CA – If you’re a Los Angeles native, resident or even visitor, you will probably cringe at the combination of “LA” and “rush hour.” Sitting in LA traffic is an excruciatingly painful task, and not just because of the hours you spend putting pressure on your lower back. If your brakes aren’t screeching because of the driver who just cut you off, then you’re probably yelling about the bumper-to-bumper deadlock. Truth be told, traffic is infuriating, exhausting and unproductive

Donald Trump’s Reagan Moment

19Nov

Sometime before Inauguration Day, President-elect Trump will be briefed on the American plan for nuclear war, inclusive of the role he plays in ordering nuclear weapons release (i.e., the “nuclear codes”.)  John F. Kennedy was the first American president briefed on this plan, back in 1961.  Afterwards, a shaken Kennedy told his Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, “And we call ourselves the human race.” President Nixon was similarly appalled. “No matter what we do,” he told his National Security Council, “they the Soviets lose their cities…what a decision.” Ninety million Soviets would die in an American nuclear strike, Nixon was told.  And ninety million Americans would die in a Soviet retaliation

WASHINGTON ― White nationalists tried repeatedly throughout the presidential campaign to sanitize their language to appeal to mainstream voters as they threw their efforts behind electing Donald Trump .   White nationalists who tried to play down their white nationalism won a victory this week as the president-elect not only chose Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his chief strategist ― a man who heads a website that regularly airs white nationalist viewpoints ― but many news outlets also are reluctant to use the specific label “white nationalist,” instead calling Bannon a “ flame-throwing outsider ” and a “ nationalist media mogul. ” Of course, calling a person a “white nationalist” who hasn’t self-identified as one is somewhat fraught.

BERLIN, Nov 17 (Reuters) – The European Union is in danger of breaking apart unless France and Germany, in particular, work harder to stimulate growth and employment and heed citizens’ concerns, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said in the German capital on Thursday.

As some in the country continue to come to grips with last week’s presidential election, Justice Sonia Sotomayor offered sobering words Tuesday for those who may be wondering how to move forward under a future President Donald Trump . “I think that this is the time where every good person has an obligation both to continue being heard and to continue doing the right thing,” she said Tuesday during a conversation with talk radio host Bill Press , who introduced the topic of the election as the “800-pound gorilla in the room.” The president-elect didn’t come up by name during the hour-long exchange, held in front of an intimate audience at the Old Naval Hospital’s  Hill Center in Washington. But Trump was certainly on everyone’s mind, including Sotomayor, who declined to delve into presidential or transition politics but nonetheless engaged the subject gracefully, as if speaking to the whole nation.
