1. United Airlines has reached an amicable settlement with Dr. David Dao, the passenger who was forcibly removed from his seat and dragged bleeding off a flight in Chicago to make room for a crew member from a partner airline, Dao's lawyers said Thursday. The news came as United released the results of its investigation into the April 9 incident. The report said United employees had made several mistakes, including calling in Chicago aviation police when there was no safety or security threat. "

100 days of Trump: The worst of populism and the worst of the establishment  

After President Trump's first 100 days in office, we have a very good idea of what the rest of the Trump administration will be like: Expect the worst aspects of populism combined with the worst parts of establishmentarianism. When he became president, Trump was an "unknown quantity" — because of his own erratic psychology, because of his ideological flexibility, because he said everything and its opposite during the campaign, because of his lack of experience in elected office, and because h...

President Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is reportedly flaunting the fact that his firm can get clients sit-down meetings with "well-established figures" like Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, Politico reports. An Eastern European politician revealed documents from Washington East West Political Strategies, which Lewandowski co-founded, boasting that the partners could "leverage [their] trusted relations with the U.S. administration" on a client's behalf.

Alex Jones loses custody case despite attempting to distance himself from his bombastic Infowars persona  

Bombastic conspiracy theorist and Infowars founder Alex Jones lost a custody case against his ex-wife, Kelly Jones, over the right to decide whom their children live with, The Daily Beast reports. Central to the case was a debate over if Jones' character on Infowars was authentic, or just a persona.

Sessions said the government might not have noticed Flynn's foreign government dealings because vetting is hard  

Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday suggested it's reasonable to believe the government's vetting of ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn simply didn't catch the fact that he'd made tens of thousands of dollars off his work for foreign governments. Sessions said in a series of television interviews on Today and Good Morning America that he's confident Trump's transition team, which was tasked with vetting Flynn, is doing "the best they can."

Populism on Pause  

Charles Krauthammer, National Review OnlineYesterday's conventional wisdom: A wave of insurgent populism is sweeping the West, threatening its foundational institutions — the European Union, the Western alliance, even liberal democracy itself. Today's conventional wisdom (post-first-round French presidential election): The populist wave has crested, soon to abate. Chances are that both verdicts are wrong.

The new network would put "the old band" back together as a response to the perception that Fox is moving too far to the left.

Few people in their right minds would have stayed outside the night the verdicts came down. On April 29, 1992, a Los Angeles court found four police officers not guilty in the brutal beating of black motorist Rodney King. Within hours, the city was on fire, and it burned for days, becoming a defining moment for black resistance and the long, dark history of race in America. Los Angeles was primed to erupt. The video of King’s beating compounded months of tension between the police and Ang

Trump tries to hide his lack of wins behind executive order signing ceremonies  

As his first 100 days in office draws to a close, Donald Trump has basically no legislative wins to speak of. So what's a man with a compulsive need to be seen as a winner to do? Trump's answer—or the answer of the staff tasked with making him feel like people think he's getting stuff done—has been to make a big deal about issuing executive orders. But while Trump's executive orders show his desire to create a meaner, uglier America with a lot less protections for workers, consumers...

Do companies need new criteria for picking CEOs?

However, more than 78 percent of those people ended up getting the top job. They also found that educational pedigree in no way correlated with performance. Only 7 percent of high-performing CEOs went to an Ivy League college for their undergraduate degree — and 8 percent of them...

The clip is a steep drop-off from the previous period, when the economy grew at a 2.1 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Unless a bill is passed by 12:01 a.m. ET Saturday, the government will have to temporarily lay off hundreds of thousands of federal workers, which Trump admits would be a "very negative thing."

Cartoon: Borderwall fundraiser  

Trump cannot seem to get his border wall adequately funded. Heck, he doesn't even know who's going to pay for the stupid thing, since amazingly Mexico said, "NO MAMES, CABRON", which means, "We will not be paying for that f***** wall." He is reduced to selling Chiclets at the border, to get some funding for his historic boondoggle.

Trump says he's surprised by how hard it is to be president  

As he approaches his 100th day in office, President Trump is feeling nostalgic, fondly remembering his days before having the nuclear codes, when he spent his time firing people on television and eating well done steaks in Manhattan restaurants. "I loved my previous life," he told Reuters in an interview Thursday. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier." When he was just a New York businessman with a penchant for gold furnishings, he was used to not having any

When it came to withdrawing from NAFTA, Donald Trump brought his trademark decisiveness and strong grasp of policy. Which is to say that he wanted to rush into something he knew nothing about, then got talked out of it by people offering him basic information that had somehow never gotten through to him in his year and a half of campaigning, transition, or first nearly 100 days of presidenting.

"Obama's getting $400,000 to be a keynote speaker," he said. "He's probably going to give a very important policy speech entitled 'The Four Boats I'm Going to Buy.'

Poor sleep habits cost American businesses billions each year  

Sleep deprivation costs American businesses about 1.2 million employee workdays and roughly $411 billion in revenue a year, according to a report from the RAND Corp. That lost productivity in the form of sleepy workers shaves an estimated 2.3 percent off the country's GDP each year. Though sleep deprivation is a worldwide problem, it's especially bad in the United States, where employment regulation and working culture might not be as sleep-friendly as European Union countries, for example.

So how is the Trump era working out for Paul Ryan?  

This was supposed to be a time of joy and progress for the Republican Party's golden boy, Paul Ryan. In 2015 he reluctantly accepted the position of speaker of the House, at last hearing the desperate pleas of his colleagues to lead them in a troubled time. The deep policy knowledge for which he was so often praised by Washington reporters, combined with his ultra-ripped biceps and delts, would guide them through the political minefields they had lain for themselves.

Why Democrats need to stop concern-trolling Trump about the deficit

"It will blow up the deficit and debt," declared Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), adding that "working Americans" will pay the bill.

First, globalization led to the outsourcing of jobs and the collapse of the manufacturing sector, leaving behind mainly lower-paying and less rewarding service-sector jobs. And n
