Roger Ailes, who transformed cable news and then American politics by building Fox News into a ratings powerhouse, died Thursday. He was 77. ... Ailes was arguably the most powerful man in American media when he suddenly lost his job last summer. Gretchen Carlson, a former Fox anchor, sued him for sexual harassment, and other women came forward to support her claims. Carlson settled with 21st Century Fox, the network's parent company, for $20 million. read more

In a brief defending its ban on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries, President Donald Trump's Justice Department approvingly cited a segregation-era Supreme Court decision that allowed Jackson, Mississippi, to close public pools rather than integrate them. In the early 1960s, courts ordered Jackson to desegregate its public parks, which included five swimming pools. Instead, the city decided to close the pools. Black residents of Jackson sued. But in 1971, the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision, decided that closing the pools rather than integrating them was just fine. ... The ruling in Palmer v. Thompson didn't explicitly uphold segregation. But it did call for courts to avoid investigating the constitutionality of officials' motivations. read more

In a speech Thursday, Hillary Clinton criticized President Trump for appointing outspoken opponents of LGBT rights to the Cabinet and other top positions. "I think we have to face the fact that we may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues," she said. Citing the terrible abuse of gay men in Chechnya, Clinton said the U.S. must "demand an end to the persecution of innocent people across the world." During her presidential campaign, Clinton was endorsed by several LGBTQ rights groups, including the Human Rights Campaign.

Under extreme pressure from conservative activists, House Republican leaders and the White House have restarted negotiations on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act. But efforts to revive the legislation in the House could take weeks, lawmakers conceded, as Congress moves forward with a full plate of other time-consuming issues. And the renewed push did not meet with much enthusiasm from Senate Republicans, who said they had other priorities at the moment. Nonetheless, Speaker Paul D. Ryan vowed to renew efforts to repeal the law, despite last's week crushing setback when House Republicans tossed aside a repeal bill because they lacked the votes to pass it. read more

Kellyanne Conway, once the most visible spokesperson for the Trump White House, has been sidelined from television appearances for making statements that were at odds with the administration's official stance, White House sources told CNNMoney on Wednesday. Conway has not given a television interview since early last week. On that Monday, she told MSNBC that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had the president's "full confidence." Hours later, Flynn resigned. The following day, Conway claimed Flynn had offered to resign, even though White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Trump had asked Flynn for his resignation.

Science proves that we're right in all situations:

Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives

Liberals think they're more intelligent than conservatives because they are

No wonder people like you hate science.

"Then there will be civil war."

I wouldn't be so anxious for such an absurd fantasy. The reality is that in such a situation you'd be one of the first killed.

Are you thrilled at being publicly humiliated?

I ask because that seems to be the only explanation other than you're just plain stupid.

And still no defense for stealing someone else's idea and claiming it for your own.

No surprise there, babbles.
