Anthony Scaramucci has resigned from his role as White House communications director, according to ABC and The New York Times.

Scaramucci was named communications director on July 21, a mere 10 days ago.

The resignation comes after a controversy-laden week for Scaramucci that included a profanity-lace tirade against other members of President Donald Trump's White House staff. read more

President Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida has asked permission to hire 70 foreign workers this fall, attesting -- in the middle of the White House's "Made in America Week" -- that it cannot find qualified Americans to serve as cooks, waiters and housekeepers. read more

538: President Trump and other Republicans have said repeatedly that one reason they have to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is that the law is failing: Healthy people are abandoning the insurance marketplaces set up by the law, driving up costs and leading yet more people to drop insurance -- a so-called "death spiral." Many health insurance experts, however, have argued that those fears are overblown, and they recently got support from an unlikely source: the Trump administration itself. read more

Beneath a veneer of classlessness, the American class reproduction machine operates with ruthless efficiency. In particular, the upper middle class is solidifying. This favored fifth at the top of the income distribution, with an average annual household income of $200,000, has been separating from the 80 percent below. Collectively, this top fifth has seen a $4 trillion-plus increase in pretax income since 1979, compared to just over $3 trillion for everyone else. Some of those gains went to the top 1 percent. But most went to the 19 percent just beneath them.

The rhetoric of "We are the 99 percent" has in fact been dangerously self-serving, allowing people with healthy six-figure incomes to convince themselves that they are somehow in the same economic boat as ordinary Americans, and that it is just the so-called super rich who are to blame for inequality. read more

Russian military intelligence executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November's presidential election, according to a highly classified intelligence report obtained by The Intercept. The top-secret National Security Agency document, which was provided anonymously to The Intercept and independently authenticated, analyzes intelligence very recently acquired by the agency about a months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the U.S. election and voting infrastructure. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light.


Comments

The Confederate generals were venerated and deeply respected by the Union officers. They were best friends before the war, and they became friends again after the war. It wasn't Southern generals who named the streets in NYC after themselves; it was Union officers.
Fortunately today's SJW's are colossally ignorant of history, and that gives them perfectly clear vision to declare one side was 100% just and right, and the other side 100% traitorous, treasonous scumbags. Little wonder the Left is banning books and opposing POV's these days. Next generation can be every bit as ignorant and knee-jerk as they, hopefully.

Can you offer a more substantive rejoinder than, "Nuh uh!"?

1. The Confederate generals were venerated and deeply respected by the Union officers.
Response: Some yes, some no. There was quite a bit of hatred as well. Some executions and towns being burned. Confederate soldiers were not treated well. Thankfully none of this matters to the argument at hand. And as a side note, most of the damn statues were put up after the Civil Rights movement.

2. Fortunately today's SJW's are colossally ignorant of history, and that gives them perfectly clear vision to declare one side was 100% just and right, and the other side 100% traitorous, treasonous scumbags.
Response: One side left the Union and went to war over keeping slaves. Stop sanitizing the Confederacy.

3. Little wonder the Left is banning books and opposing POV's these days.
Response: The Left isn't burning books. That's the Right. Ask your Fundies and Nazis.

4. Next generation can be every bit as ignorant and knee-jerk as they, hopefully.
Response: I'm pretty sure its the Right that is against book learnin'. But keep up those Civil War participation trophies.

Happy Jeff?
