It took one question for a reporter to expose Trump’s latest baseless Obama conspiracy theory

On Monday, a reporter exposed President Donald Trump for yet again peddling a nonsensical conspiracy theory about Barack Obama.

Hours after Trump posted a string of tweets and retweets about “Obamagate” — a new conspiracy theory that holds Obama responsible for masterminding the Russia investigation and railroading former Trump administration National Security Adviser Michael Flynn into a guilty plea for lying to the FBI (never mind that there’s no evidence of investigatory misconduct) — Philip Rucker of the Washington Post called Trump’s bluff.

“In one of your Mother’s Day tweets, you appeared to accuse President Obama of ‘the biggest …

Trump’s White House banner claims “America leads the world in testing.” That’s wrong.

As President Donald Trump spoke at the Rose Garden on Monday about coronavirus testing, a banner behind him made a bold claim: “AMERICA LEADS THE WORLD IN TESTING.”

That claim, however, is very misleading.

It’s true that the US leads the world in total number of tests, in large part because it’s a big country and has the most confirmed Covid-19 cases and deaths globally. But when controlling for population, America is behind several countries in terms of Covid-19 testing: As of May 9, the US testing rate is roughly 26 per 1,000 people, according to Our World in Data

Joe Biden’s campaign is relying on Democratic women amid the Tara Reade scrutiny

Joe Biden wants to make sure Democratic women know he has their back and that prominent women in the party have his.

In the past few weeks, Biden has held a town hall with Hillary Clinton about how the coronavirus disproportionately affects women. He’s appeared on Instagram Live with US women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe, a feminist hero who once said, if invited, “I’m not going to the fucking White House.” And then, on May 7, the campaign held an organizing call headlined by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), a longtime champion of the Me Too movement.

The campaign has ratcheted …

The Supreme Court hears the biggest presidential immunity cases since Nixon

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear three cases that could upend one of the most basic assumptions that the Court has maintained since the Nixon years — that the president of the United States is not above scrutiny or immune from investigation. The Court will hear these cases, moreover, in an unusual remote argument — the Supreme Court’s building remains closed to the public due to the coronavirus.

Trump v. Mazars, Trump v. Deutsche Bank, and Trump v. Vance are maddening cases.

They are maddening because, in all three cases and especially in the first two, …

Stress Reduction with Ashwagandha

Aside from stress management, ashwagandha can also help with anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue, mild obsessive compulsive disorder, fibromyalgia, and restless leg syndrome. All of these can get at one of the herb’s major possible benefits. In Western world, the scientists abstract the herb’s active ingredient, synthesize this in the laboratory, and use this in drug with specific action, usually shutting off something inside the body. However, once the whole herb is used, this can be used for the treatment of numerous conditions instead of only targeting one in the same way that drugs do.
