AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Kennedys had their New England coastal hideaway in Hyannis Port, a Camelot-like mystique and a political godfather in Joseph P. Kennedy.

Cohen would have to have some credibility before it could be destroyed, and how much could reside in a self-described “fixer” who openly compared himself to Tom Hagen, the lawyer-gangster in The Godfather. The real flaw was the assumption that Special Counsel Mueller is lining up witnesses and building a criminal case, like prosecutors do. No prosecutor builds a case the way Mueller is going about it.

We weren't exactly shocked to see that Amazon's Cyber Monday sale on Echo devices is to die for — but we were kind of shook over Amazon's most recent (and possibly most futuristic) Echo device, the Echo Look, being on Cyber Monday sale for 75% off. One question: IS NO ONE ELSE FREAKING OUT OVER THIS? This is easily the biggest sale we've seen on it since its release to the public in June 2018 — but more importantly, when have you ever seen Amazon put an Echo device at 75% off? Amazon is seriously playing Godfather with an offer we can't refuse. The Look is an Alexa-enabled virtual style assistant that uses artificial intelligence to judge your outfits and give clothing suggestions, which is pretty groundbreaking — even for the creators of Alexa. The hands-free camera can sit on a flat surface or be mounted to a wall to take head-to-toe and 360-degree photos, which it uses to compare outfits with the Style Check feature, telling you which outfit looks better on you bas...

Tattoo motifs in fashion have come a long way since landing on the sartorial scene in the early ’00s.

Trump’s “ignorance and psychosis” shakes CIA veterans. A surge of public activism by former CIA personnel is one of the most unexpected developments of the Trump presidency, and it is accelerating.Two former CIA officers—both Democrats, both women, both liberal—were elected to Congress on November 6. Abigail Spanberger, former operations officer, was elected in Virginia’s 7th District. Elissa Slotkin, former analyst, won in Michigan’s 8th District. Both Spanberger and Slotkin incorporated their intelligence experience into their center-left platforms. Their victories tripled the number of CIA “formers” in Congress. Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), previously the only former intelligence officer on Capitol Hill, won re-election by defeating Gina Ortiz Jones, herself a former military intelligence officer.They are hardly alone. Former directors John Brennan and Gen. Michael Hayden are among Trump’s harshest critics. Other former CIA leaders like Michael Morell and John Mc...

Politics make strange bedfellows. During the George W. Bush era, “neocon” (short for “neoconservative”) is a word that inspired feelings of contempt among liberals and progressives as well as the libertarian right (Ron Paul, Gary Johnson) and paleoconservatives (Patrick Buchanan). Neocons, during Bush’s presidency, became synonymous with the Iraq War, an abrasive foreign policy and huge federal deficits. But politics make strange bedfellows, and in the Donald Trump era—with the alt-right occupying the White House—liberals and progressives have been commiserating with prominent Bush-era neocons like Bill Kristol, Max Boot and David Frum.Liberals and progressives frequently butted heads with Kristol, Boot and Frum during Bush’s presidency, but these days, they often show up as welcome guests on liberal-leaning MSNBC—and they share the left’s disdain for Donald Trump’s presidency. In 2018, it isn’t uncommon to find Rachel Maddow or another liberal at MSNBC en...

Dr. Carl Hart is one of America's leading advocates for the legalization of drugs and their responsible use. Laws are not natural. They are made by society. As such, they reward certain behavior and punish others. The law is not "neutral" or "blind." It is made by the powerful, often to the disadvantage of the less powerful. America's drug laws serve as a powerful example of how justice that is supposed to be dispensed equally becomes a form of social control.For example, the long-running "War on Drugs" punishes the poor more than the rich. Black and brown people are racially profiled, subjected to "stop and frisk" procedures, and experience routine violations of their civil and human rights. White people -- who in many places are actually more likely to possess illegal drugs -- are treated much more benignly. Through lobbying, donations and other interest-group behavior, pharmaceutical, tobacco and alcohol manufacturers make sure their products are protected under the...
