The Republican president-elect takes office on Friday...Trump was also quoted as saying in the interview that he would target pharmaceutical companies over drug pricing and insist they negotiate directly with the Medicare and Medicaid government health plans for the elderly and poor.

Schwartz will be removed from his post effective January 20 at 12:01pm local time - as soon as the United States commander-in-chief takes office, according to a memo obtained by the Washington Post.

John Lewis: Trump is not a 'legitimate' president | 13 Jan 2017 | Civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis says he doesn't see President-elect Donald Trump as a "legitimate" commander in chief following Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton." Lewis also said he planned to skip Trump's inauguration next week, which he said would be the first ceremony he would not attend since coming to Washington. [But globalist fraud Lewis was fine and dandy w. TPP pimp Obama and unelected dirt-bag George W. Bush, though, right? Apparently, identity politics rules at every juncture. --LRP]

January 12, 2017 by walden9

FBI, Justice Department to be investigated over Clinton probe | 12 Jan 2017 | The Justice Department's internal watchdog announced Thursday it has launched a probe into the department and the FBI's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. The announcement, which was expected, comes after criticism of the Justice Department's handling of the investigation, particularly on how the public was notified about the controversy, which was a major issue on the 2016 campaign trail. It will likely mean questions over the role of FBI Director James Comey in the fading days of the election, which Democrats believe helped cost them the presidency, will linger on long into the administration of Donald Trump.

If colleges keep killing academic freedom, civilization will die, too

January 12, 2017 by walden9

If colleges keep killing academic freedom, civilization will die, too | 10 Jan 2017 | No one can doubt that we should strive for civility. But problems arise when we are told that "uncivil" speech has made a campus "unsafe" - and that university officials should make a campus safe again by punishing uncivil speakers. To combat these threats to "safety," campus administrators have morphed into civility police. On some campuses, "bias response teams" investigate professors' online comments. Several universities, including Yale, may soon introduce a smartphone app that lets users anonymously report offensive remarks. These anonymous reports will allow university bureaucrats - and perhaps even the public - to compile a directory of "subversive" professors in the spirit of dictatorial regimes. One can easily imagine dueling "watchlists" compiled by liberal and conservative activists with the shared aim of chilling unwanted speech.
