NFL: Trump ’s Criticism of Players Shows an ‘Unfortunate Lack of Respect’
(HUNTSVILLE, Ala.) — President Donald Trump has some advice for National Football League owners: Fire players who kneel during the national anthem. He’s also encouraging fans to walk out in protest.And the president is bemoaning what he describes as a decline in violence in the sport. “They’re ruining the game,” he said during a political rally in Alabama on Friday night that veered beyond politics. Several athletes, including a handful of NFL players, have refused to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to protest of the treatment of blacks by police. Quarterback Colin Kaeperni...

Ben Carson Breaks With President Trump and Endorses Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Race
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said on Friday that he supports the candidacy of Roy Moore in the race for the Republican Senate nomination in Alabama, breaking from his boss President Donald Trump, who has endorsed Sen. Luther Strange. “Judge Moore is a fine man of proven character and integrity, who I have come to respect over the years,” Carson said in a statement. “He is truly someone who reflects the Judeo-Christian values that were so important to the establishment of our country. It is these values that we must return to in order to make America great again.” The announceme...

56% of Americans Prefer Obamacare to the New GOP Health Care Plan
The news that Arizona Sen. John McCain will not support the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act has made it incredibly unlikely that the bill will pass — and the majority of Americans may feel relief, according to a new poll. A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that 56% of Americans prefer the Affordable Care Act to the Graham-Cassidy Bill. Just 33% of those surveyed prefer the GOP’s hasty proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare. According to the Post, pollsters told voters that the bill, proposed by Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, would eliminate ...

President Trump Isn ’t Supporting the Trumpier Candidate in This Key Senate Race. Here’s Why
He’s outspoken, with no experience as a lawmaker, a track record of politically incorrect comments that have pundits on the Acela corridor widening their eyes and a deep belief that America needs to be made great again. Sound familiar? This is Roy Moore, the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court who was removed from this position not once but twice — first in 2003, for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments he’d had installed in the state courthouse, and again in 2016, for defying the U.S. Supreme Court over its ruling on gay marriage.

The Trump Administration Could Change How its Travel Ban Works
The Trump Administration is considering replacing the so-called travel ban with more narrowly tailored travel and screening restrictions for foreigners coming to the United States. The changes are expected as a review period called for in the President’s executive order banning travel from six Muslim-majority countries comes to a close. The review period ends on Sept. 24, but officials at the Department of Homeland would not confirm whether or not a decision would come before then. The Administration also did not say whether the six countries covered under the travel ban would be affected by the changes nor did it gi...

McCain, who is good friends with Graham, announced Friday that he planned to vote no on the bill, making it highly unlikely to pass.

Politicians and pundits often cite the Founding Fathers to prove that their views on the role of government are in line with the original vision for American democracy.

Kaiser Permanente CEO: Health Care Must Mean More Than Coverage
Health care has been in the spotlight this year — and most of the focus has been on what is not working for the American people. Like many other industries that have undergone significant transformation before health care, the way forward is rarely simple or defined. There is no question it’s time for the health care industry to reflect the changing needs of America. Yet, is the health care system so broken that — to solve for 30 million more people getting access to high-quality, affordable care — we must throw out what is currently working for the 300 million people who have access to coverage whi...

The war of words continues to escalate between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who on Thursday referred to the head of state as a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard.” This most recent barb followed Trump’s remarks at his debut address to the U.N.

If you’ve ever walked into a hotel room and wondered if you’re being watched, you’re not alone.

In a Quantum Leap, Star Trek Becomes a Female Enterprise
When CBS announced two years ago that it would bring Star Trek back to television, this time starring two women of color, you could have been forgiven for thinking the trolls might stay under their bridges for once. Even if they turned out in droves to protest the casting of Daisy Ridley as the lead of the new Star Wars and harassed the stars of the all-female Ghostbusters remake, surely Trekkers–fans prefer that term to Trekkies–would be different.
