AG Jeff Sessions submits resignation letter to Trump (The Washington Times)
Embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned Wednesday, making good on President Trump’s promise that he would be out of office after the midterm elections.Mr. Sessions said he was resigning at Mr. Trump’s request. He did not provide a reason in his resignation letter, but praised the president for their work together.
“I have been honored to serve as Attorney General and have worked to implement the law enforcement agenda based on the rule of law that formed a central part of your campaign for the Presidency,” he said in a letter to President Trump. [Read More]
CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta was captured wrestling with an unidentified White House aide for possession of a microphone while he attempted to ask President Trump questions during Wednesday’s press conference.
Acosta and Trump got into a heated debate after the reporter asked him about the migrant caravan. Trump told Acosta to let him do his job.
“Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN,” Trump told Acosta.
The reporter tried to ask him another question before a female White House aide walked over to him.
Trump then told him, “That’s enough!” [Read More]
Our long national nightmare is over, the midterms have ended. Now our new long national nightmare begins as the battle starts for the presidency in 2020. I know the last thing you want to hear about is more campaigning, but it’s going to happen no matter what, so we might as well mock it. Here is a look at some of the Democrats who are rumored to be running to challenge President Trump in two years.
Elizabeth Warren: She checks a lot of boxes liberals love – she’s a woman and she’s a minority (when it’s convenient for her). She also has no real accomplishments aside from getting elected to the Senate, which was enough for the last Democratic president. On the downside, her condescending kindergarten teacher speaking voice would likely only appeal to 1/1024th of the country. [Read More]
President Trump warned Democrats Wednesday that they can either have bipartisan cooperation on trade, infrastructure and health care, or they can pursue investigations into him — but they can’t do both.
Mr. Trump also said he’ll still push for more funding for his border wall, setting up an early clash with Democrats who after this week’s voting will control the House when the new Congress convenes. He said a government shutdown is still “possible.”
He saved his worst criticism for Republicans who refused to embrace him, and congratulated Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democrats’ House leader, in line to become speaker. [Read More]
If scientists wanted aliens to find Earth, how would they arrange such an encounter? A new paper from MIT suggests that a giant laser, magnified by a giant telescope and aimed out into space, could do the trick.
In what author James Clark calls a “feasibility study,” he proposes that a high-powered 1-to 2-megawatt laser be focused directly into space. While the Earth has been sending signals like radio waves into space for over a century, like those famously seen in the opening of Contact,it’s possible that solar entities like the sun and exoplanets beyond the solar system have been interfering with signals, making it harder for potential aliens to touch base.
The goal of the laser-telescope rig is the creation of an energy beam, meant to stand out amid all of the excess noise in the solar system. Its target would be areas like Proxima Centauri, the closest star to Earth, and TRAPPIST-1, a star around 40 light-years away with seven exoplanets in orbit. Scientists say 3 of those exoplanets are potentially habitable. [Read More]
