House passes bill to fund government, but it faces long odds in the Senate  

The House of Representatives on Thursday night voted 230-197 on a bill that keeps the government funded for less than a month, but it's uncertain if the measure will pass the Senate. The bill finally got enough votes to pass after Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) made concessions to the far-right Freedom Caucus, including promising a vote on a conservative immigration bill. The bill would keep the government funded through Feb. 16, plus authorize six years of funding for the Children's Health Insuran

Larry Nassar's rampant sexual abuse was reportedly an open secret at Michigan State  

More than a dozen Michigan State University employees knew of their colleague Larry Nassar's serial sexual abuse, The Detroit News reported Thursday. Since 1997, no fewer than 14 university figures had heard of the now-disgraced doctor's actions, the paper reported — despite the school's claim that it was unaware until a woman reported Nassar's behavior in 2014. In 1997, Michigan State's then-gymnastics coach Kathie Klages was told by two girls from the school's youth gymnastics program that ...

We know what to expect from midterm elections in a president's first term. History tells us that the party holding the White House generally loses seats in Congress. When presidents have approval ratings below 50 percent, they lose even more seats — and President Trump has never been close to sniffing 50 percent. It's little surprise, then, that Democrats confidently expect to pick up loads of seats in November's election, perhaps enough to wrest back control of the House, if not the Senate. ...

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, a tennis upset of historic proportions was brewing at the 2018 Australian Open. But barely anyone in the Western Hemisphere was awake to see it. That's a shame, because over the last decade, the Australian Open has ranged from consistently excellent to occasionally transcendent. It's not easy to stay awake for — a 7:30 p.m. match in Melbourne starts at 3:30 a.m. on America's East Coast — but if there's one thing in sports worth waking up (or staying up) f...

Paul Ryan spokesman picks a Twitter fight with Jimmy Kimmel on CHIP, government shutdown  

Congress is two days away from a government shutdown, and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) doesn't have enough Republican votes for a fourth straight short-term spending package, facing discontent from GOP defense hawks and the far-right Freedom Caucus. Democrats say they will vote against it, despite a tacked-on 6-year extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), because Republicans won't agree to a deal to protect DREAMers. The White House and House GOP leaders are leaning on

Never mind what you've heard. The leader of the Democratic Party in 2018 is not Hillary Clinton or Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi. It is an enormous green face with Veltrex eyes the size of cocktail shakers, a salacious red tongue leaping out of a cavernous mouth, and clasped faux-velvet arms holding a knapsack over his groin. His name is Mitch McTurtle. This creature is ostensibly the official mascot of the Nevada Democrats, announced earlier this week at a groan-inducing press conference. But

It apparently only took an hour and a half for Stephen Bannon to crack himself like an egg during his hearing with the House Intelligence Committee. Axios reported Wednesday that Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, accidentally told congressional investigators about his time working for the Trump administration, despite the fact that he'd been instructed not to by the White House.

Eric Trump defends his father against charges of racism, claims the only color the president sees is green  

Eric Trump defended his father against charges of racism Wednesday, claiming President Trump sees just one color — and it isn't exactly a natural human shade. The president came under fire last week after he reportedly dismissed immigrants from "shithole" places such as Haiti, El Salvador, or Africa during a meeting with lawmakers. He then allegedly offered up immigrants from Norway, a country that is 94 percent white, as a favorable alternative. Eric Trump nevertheless dismissed such rep

House Republicans and Democrats are polling their caucuses Wednesday on a House GOP proposal for short-term spending extension to avert a government shutdown on Friday at midnight, but with Democrats insisting that the next spending package include a solution for the 700,000 DREAMers and Republicans balking, a government shutdown is a distinct possibility.
