Paul Ryan rushed to Florida Friday—for a weekend of fundraising

Paul Ryan rushed to Florida Friday—for a weekend of fundraising

Politics
After the latest massacre of school children and teachers, House Speaker Paul Ryan crept into action. Not to meet with the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their families, the site of that shooting, but for a fundraising weekend at Key Biscayne, for "the NRCC’s $15,000 PAC donor program, made up of business, trade association and law firm PACs who are vital to the NRCC." At the first event of the weekend, Ryan demonstrated his concern for the community by having a primary school teacher who confronted him about guns kicked out of his party. Maria Thorne, a Key Biscayne activist, said she noticed motorcade traffic clogging up her commute home from her job as a fifth grade teacher at iPrep Academy, where she spent the day reassuring scared students that she could keep th

Donald Trump spends weekend in marathon whine full of profanity, lies—and a big clue

Politics
In memory of those who lost their lives in the more recent mass shooting, Donald Trump took the one action available to him as the most powerful man on the planet—he spent the weekend in conducting multi-day, whine-fest in which he spread lies and blame at everyone except himself and his buddies in Russia. In a defiant and error-laden tweetstorm that was remarkable even by his own combative standards, Trump stewed aloud about the latest indictments brought by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III against Russians for their elaborate campaign to denigrate the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, and push voters toward Trump. … In a string of 10 Twitter messages — which began after 11 p.m. Saturday and ended around noon Sunday, and which included profanity and misspellings —

‘Black Panther’ blows away box office with $192M weekend

Breaking News
NEW YORK (AP) — A wave of feverish anticipation, fawning critical acclaim and groundbreaking cultural meaning pushed “Black Panther” to a record-setting $192 million debut in U.S. and Canada theaters, firmly establishing the superhero sensation as a box-office landmark. The Marvel film from the Walt Disney Co. blew past expectations to become the fifth-highest-grossing debut ever, not adjusting for inflation, following only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” ″Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” ″Jurassic World” and “The Avengers.” In estimates Sunday, Disney predicted a four-day holiday weekend of $218 million domestically and a global debut of $361 million. Though the film’s international footprint doesn’t include several of the largest markets — China, Russia and Japan — it still ranks among the top

Entertainment
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are celebrating love and basketball. An NBA All-Star Weekend event doubled as date night for the couple — who are currently expecting their first child, a baby boy — this weekend. Stepping out together, the pair hit Rich Paul’s Klutch Sports Group’s annual The Game Is Every-Thing dinner party in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday. Kardashian, 33, and Thompson posed together for photos, with the 26-year-old athlete smiling as he placed his hand on his girlfriend’s growing belly. The reality star wore an all-black ensemble, a midi dress and jacket, for the dinner party, where guests feasted on kale and apple salads, tandoori spiced chicken, sherry glazed Atlantic salmon and filet mignon. For dessert, “Les, Nye” doughnuts satisfied every sweet tooth. Wa

Weekend thoughts: Top four, diving, Wenger on the new signings and more

Sports
Morning all. Yesterday’s 2-2 draw between Liverpool and Marshlands Diving Club is probably a good result for us, all things considered. While our chances of bridging the gap to the top four are slim, they’re far from impossible, and the more points those around us drop the better. It keeps us in touch, and hopefully keeps us focused for the rest of this Premier League campaign. I know players will go out and want to try and win every game regardless of where we are in the table, but if Champions League qualification via that channel is the carrot, we don’t need the stick to be so far away that it’s demoralising. As for the diving, there will always be those who will say the slightest contact means that the player is entitled go down, but in both cases it was so blat...
