President Trump and Democratic state Sen. Kevin de León agree on one thing: They’re both convinced California Sen. Dianne Feinstein made a mistake when she delayed for weeks the release of a letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape. Trump joined a chorus of Republicans on Tuesday in criticizing Feinstein for the timing of the release of a letter from Christine Blasey Ford, a Palo Alto University psychology professor who said she was assaulted by a “stumbling drunk” Kavanaugh during a party when they were in high school during the early 1980s. It’s a charge the federal appeals court judge has vehemently denied. “It is frankly a terrible thing that this information wasn’t given to us a long time ago, months ago when (Feinstein) got it,” Trump said at the White House. Democrats “could’ve done that instead of waiting until everything was finished and then all of a sudden spring it.” Although his … [Read more...] about Trump and Kevin de León agree Feinstein blew it.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An executive with Netflix says the streaming giant has boosted its original content exponentially over the last several years and that will mean more action for its production hub in New Mexico, where state officials have been busy trying to woo more big partners in the industry. Entrance to ABQ Studios in Albuquerque, where Netflix announced at the studio complex that it chose Albuquerque as a new production hub. (AP Photo/Susan Montoya Bryan) Nick Maniatis, who ran the state’s film office before going to work for Netflix, spoke to a group of hundreds of business leaders and elected officials who were gathered Thursday in Albuquerque.

(CNN)There is a slow-motion car crash quality to the destruction of democratic norms right now. But we can't afford to simply fixate on our problems. We need to focus on finding solutions.

LAS VEGAS — When Sheryl Thornton-Burnham moved to Las Vegas in 1995, she didn’t think the Raiders would someday follow. Thornton-Burnham had worked for the Raiders for several years in Los Angeles.
