I Was Backstage During Oscars Envelopegate: Exactly How the Chaos Unfolded

Everything had been humming along like a well-oiled machine. For over three hours on Sunday night during the Oscars, a steady stream of Hollywood’s biggest stars navigated the cramped backstage quarters at the Dolby Theatre, gamely snaking around show producers, photographers, crew and moving equipment to get to and from the stage.

The mood in the wings was upbeat all night – host Jimmy Kimmel‘s jokes were landing, Oscar presenters were hitting marks and there was plenty of coffee and Twizzlers to go around.

Agents detail ‘daily’ border fence battle, seek post-Obama ‘restart’

In the tiny Arizona city of Douglas, a Border Patrol surveillance camera is trained on a 10-foot-high fence with Mexico. After a few seconds, footage shows a figure appearing out of nowhere and the fence suddenly opens to allow a pickup truck through. A car follows, and they speed off into adjoining neighborhoods while the makeshift gate slams shut.

The Wild West still has a foothold here, more than 100 years after gunslingers Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday called Douglas home. Only the outlaws are cartels and traffickers.

Transgender boy wins Texas girls wrestling title

Mack Beggs came here to wrestle. And wrestle he did, manhandling four opponents over two days as he captured a Class 6A girls state championship Saturday.

The 110-pound gold medalist also captured something else: The attention of a nation increasingly polarized by transgender issues.

Beggs, a 17-year-old transgender boy from Euless Trinity High School, didn’t come to the state tournament seeking to carry the transgender torch, or to become a lightning rod, or to be the target of a lawsuit that could end his high school wrestling career.

Democrats talk up impeachment on eve of Trump address

The top Democratic leaders in Congress condemned the presidency of Donald Trump on Tuesday at a National Press Club Forum, where they hinted they might eventually seek to impeach him and they predicted his address to the House and Senate on Tuesday would be full of empty promises.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Trump has misled the public to a degree that “there are plenty of grounds right now for the current president” to be impeached. But the public is not fully on board yet, Pelosi said, because “many of the president’s supporters are not ready to accept the fact that their judgement may not have been so great in voting for him.”

Democrats Prepare to Troll President Trump During Major Speech to Congress

Although President Donald Trump won’t be giving a formal State of the Union address Tuesday night (he’s only been in office a month), Democrats are still planning on making his address to a joint session of Congress as uncomfortable as possible.

Each legislator is allowed a handful of tickets for the public gallery, so that interested constituents and guests can be present for what is typically the President’s most important speech of the year. Most often, those tickets go to hometown heroes from the legislator’s respective districts, people who have made the news over the past year, or those who have benefitted from the administration’s policy agenda.

Rachel Dolezal Is Nearly Homeless, On Food Stamps – And Still White

Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month.

“There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.”

Trump and Paul Ryan Head for a Clash Over the Budget, and Ideology

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump’s proposal to slash domestic spending to preserve the two biggest drains on the federal government – Social Security and Medicare – has set up a battle to determine who controls the Republican Party’s ideology.

The outcome could map the course of major challenges to come, including a revision of the tax code, a huge increase in infrastructure spending and any effort to balance the budget.
Since the start of his insurgent campaign, Trump has opposed his party’s long-held positions on a range of policies, including free trade, how to deal with Russia and the future of government entitlement programs.

Trump’s budget blueprint – which is expected to be central to his address to Congress Tuesday night – sets up a striking clash with the House speaker, Paul Ryan, who has made a career out of pressing difficult truths on federal spending. For years, Ryan has maintained that to tame the budget deficit without tax increases and prevent draconian cuts to federal programs, Congress must be willing to change, and cut, the programs that spend the most money – Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Tom Perez, new DNC chairman, suggests Trump ‘rigged’ general election

Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez wasted no time jumping into the political fray, suggesting the day after he was tabbed to lead the party out of power that President Trump “rigged” the general election with the help of the Russians.

“Frankly, what we need to be looking at is whether this election was rigged by Donald Trump and his buddy, [Russian President] Vladimir Putin,” Mr. Perez said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

California: The Physical Collapse Of A Social State

Welcome to California. It is a state of a perfect set of laws – at least in the minds of those wedded to the legislative pursuit of social justice. Under the one-party Democrat rules, spending on fairness tops $100 billion every year. Meanwhile, the basic infrastructure of the state, so necessary for the economy long and short term, is collapsing.

Teen asked if he’d have sex with his parents during TGI Friday’s job interview

Daniel Dougherty, an 18-year-old apprentice engineer, was caught off guard while interviewing for a job at a local TGI Friday’s in Derby, England earlier this month. Interviewers apparently asked him a series of inappropriate and bizarre questions — to say the least.

“Would you rather sh*t a brick or cry a glass?” was one of the questions Dougherty was asked. He was also asked if he’d “rather watch his parents have sex for a year or join in just for the start.” The interviewer was believed to be a bartender on staff at the Friday’s.
