House Speaker Ryan mulls retirement after 2018 elections: Politico
Thu, 14 Dec 2017 15:19:46 -0500

House Speaker Ryan mulls retirement after 2018 elections: PoliticoRepublican House Speaker Paul Ryan has told confidants he would like to retire after the 2018 congressional elections, Politico reported on Thursday, but the Wisconsin lawmaker and an aide played down the report, saying he wasn't quitting any time soon. "Ryan has made it known to some of his closest confidants that this will be his final term as speaker," Politico said. Politico said it interviewed three dozen people who knew Ryan - including lawmakers, congressional and administration aides, conservative intellectuals and Republican lobbyists - and that "not a single person believed Ryan will stay in Congress past 2018." White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said President Donald Trump had spoken to Ryan "and made sure that the speaker knew very clearly and in no uncertain terms that if that news was true, he was very unhappy with it." "The speaker assured the president that those were not accurate reports and that they looked forward to working together for a long time to come," Sanders said.

China sidesteps blame over S. Korean journalist's beating
Fri, 15 Dec 2017 08:04:27 -0500

China sidesteps blame over S. Korean journalist's beatingChina sidestepped blame Friday for the beating of a South Korean photojournalist by Chinese security, an incident that has marred a visit by the South Korean president to mend frayed ties with Beijing. The incident has sparked outrage in South Korea, with the opposition calling on Moon to cancel the rest of his four-day state visit, his first in China since taking office in May. A photographer was thrown to the floor and kicked, reportedly suffering fractured facial bones and ruptured vessels in an eye, as Chinese security personnel stopped South Korean photographers following Moon's delegation at a trade show on Thursday.


Trump loved net neutrality once upon a time
Fri, 15 Dec 2017 10:17:01 -0500

Trump loved net neutrality once upon a timeYou know the joke that there's an old Donald Trump tweet expressing the opposite of every single one of his administration's policies? Well, one exists for net neutrality as well. As the FCC voted Thursday to hand control of the internet over to massive corporations, it didn't take long for Twitter detectives to find out that President Trump used to be a pretty big fan of net neutrality. In a late 2014 tweet, Trump criticized Obama (shocking) for attacking the internet, and defended net neutrality as "the Fairness Doctrine." Obama’s attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2014 Most interestingly, Trump claimed that a breakdown of net neutrality rules would ultimately attack conservative media. You see, he's probably right about that. As we wrote, the prospective ability for ISPs to pick and choose which content to throttle and which to prioritize might very well endanger smaller news sites like Infowars and Breitbart. It's entirely conceivable that Comcast, a major internet provider that also owns NBC, might prioritize access to NBC news at the expense of smaller, conservative media — especially if that media is publishing things that aren't terribly popular or accurate. In the meantime, Trump's family weighed in with their typical subtlety.  I would pay good money to see all those people complaining about Obama’s FCC chairman voting to repeal #NetNeutality actually explain it in detail. I’d also bet most hadn’t heard of it before this week. #outrage — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) December 15, 2017 WATCH: This sleeping companion is your new best friend
