Hungarians took to the streets to protest for academic freedom and against government legislation that a university funded by George Soros said is aimed at shutting it down.

WikiLeaks’ Assange asylum winner in Ecuador election

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will likely be able to remain at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London after voters in Ecuador on Sunday narrowly elected ruling party candidate Lenín Moreno over conservative Guillermo Lasso.

Moreno, the political successor to President Rafael Correa, had said he would allow Assange to stay. Correa in 2012 granted asylum to Assange, who hasn’t left the embassy since.

Republican Health Care Bill’s Failure Means Republicans Need to Try Again

Republicans are showing more eagerness to blame one another for defeat on health care than they ever did to gain a victory. After the House leadership’s health-care bill had to be pulled from the floor for lack of votes, the party’s various factions read from their familiar scripts. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s allies lashed out at the conservative die-hards in the House Freedom Caucus for rejecting the bill. Those conservatives blamed Ryan in return, saying he had given them a lousy bill — one that a significant number of Republicans on the left and in the middle of their House conference had also rejected. Trump critics blamed Trump for his erratic leadership.

The 7 big questions Republicans have to answer on tax reform

Having failed to pass anything on health care, the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress appear to be rapidly moving on to work on passing a tax reform package.

Anyone who hoped this would somehow be an easier task than repealing Obamacare is in for a rude surprise.

As with health care, the tax reform effort is expected to be heavily based on the “Better Way” policy program that House Speaker Paul Ryan and Ways and Means Chair Kevin Brady put out last summer. Several of the specific tax reform proposals in that program have already sparked a huge backlash, with the Koch brothers and a coalition of retailers like Walmart and IKEA already lobbying and buying ads opposing one particularly controversial idea.

Senate heads for ‘nuclear option’ if Democrats filibuster Gorsuch nomination

One of the Senate’s most serious jobs – confirming the president’s choice for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court – has devolved into a game of political chicken.

Senators are heading toward an institution-defining showdown next week as Democrats promise to try to block President Trump’s nominee, Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, with a filibuster, a rarely seen maneuver for high court appointments.

Los Angeles Times Editorial: Our Dishonest President

It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a “catastrophe.”

Still, nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck. Like millions of other Americans, we clung to a slim hope that the new president would turn out to be all noise and bluster, or that the people around him in the White House would act as a check on his worst instincts, or that he would be sobered and transformed by the awesome responsibilities of office.

Trump summit will be only US stop for Xi, says Secret Service source

President Xi Jinping will limit his US visit next month to Palm Beach, Florida, and local US media are reporting that he won’t stay at Mar-a-Lago, US President Donald Trump’s exclusive Palm Beach residence.

A US Secret Service spokesperson, who asked not to be identified, confirmed that Xi and his delegation would be in Palm Beach on April 6 and 7 for meetings with Trump, and that the ­Chinese president had no other US stops planned.

Death Spiral Disaster: Last Major Insurer Reportedly Plans to Abandon Most Obamacare Markets Next Year

One of the consistent and factually-correct refrains from Republican critics of Obamacare — the president especially — is that the current law is failing and getting worse. Democrats inadvertently confirm this reality when they accuse Republicans of “sabotaging” the law by allowing it to be followed as-written. Unstable risk pools disrupted by adverse selection are driving costs up, healthier consumers away, and carriers out of the market. The result is a toxic trend of costlier coverage with fewer options, purchased disproportionately by sicker consumers — which only deepens the unhealthy fiscal trajectory.

Stunning paradise island where the locals fire arrows at passing helicopters and KILL unwanted tourists

The villagers of North Sentinel Island, located between India and Burma, fired arrows at a passing camera crew who tried to document their way of living from the sea and air.

The Sentinelese are believed to have lived on the island for over 60,000 years but little else is known about them because of their hostility to outsiders.

The clip shows the inhabitants lining up on the beach with spears while others drew bows and unleashed a volley of piercing arrows.

Trump hits golf course with Sen. Rand Paul

The outing to Trump National Golf Club came hours after Trump tweeted that talks on replacing the law have been going on and “will continue until such time as a deal is hopefully struck.”

He added that anyone who thinks the effort is dead “does not know the love and strength in R Party!”

Trump golfed and discussed policy with Paul and budget director Mick Mulvaney, said White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

A live stream of Shia LaBeouf chanting was disrupted by Nazi-themed dancing. Then things got weird

On the day of President Trump’s inauguration, two poorly understood forces of the Internet collided in a sort of bizarre death lock — a struggle that has manifested in the real world as Nazi-costumed dances in New York, a meticulously planned theft in rural Tennessee and last month, a raid on a British rooftop.

These forces are called 4chan and Shia LaBeouf.

LaBeouf is a Hollywood star who recently restyled himself as a highly meme-able performance artist — limiting his public utterances to a string of repeat tweets, for example, or showing up to a film festival with a paper bag on his head.

GOP calls Tom Perez’s anti-Trump comments ‘dangerous’

The Republican National Committee whacked back at new Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez for saying that President Trump ‘didn’t win this election.’

The RNC sent out a statement Sunday morning labeling his comments ‘unhinged.’

‘Chairman Perez’s comments are dangerous and undermine our democratic process,’ said chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel. ‘Perhaps Mr. Perez needs a lesson on how the Electoral College works but whether he likes it or not, Donald Trump is our president.’
