    Donald Trumpís oft-used excuse for not releasing his tax returns is that they are still under audit at the US Internal Revenue Serviceóno matter that this doesnít prevent their releaseóbut if his pick for Treasury secretary gets his way, the interminable audit may end sooner.

    Taking aim at the Federal Reserve's politically motivated manipulation of the U.S. economy, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump blasted the controversial central bank's artificially low interest rates.

Still, the blows from pew sitters in his own faith sometimes find a more tender mark.

    Students at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. are hosting a ďself-careĒ night for those who need to recuperate after the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. A Facebook event page for ďGUPride Self-Care NightĒ says the event, hosted by the Georgetown LGBTQ student organization GUPride, will have everything needed to deal with the trauma of a president they donít support. Stuffed animals, Legos, and juice boxes to comfort those in need. Do you know anyone who suffers from Donald Trump derangement syndrome? Do you avoid talking about Trump in front of them?

    WASHINGTON - Young immigrants currently protected from deportation will be quickly removed from the country by President Donald Trumpís plan to boost deportations, even if the new president doesnít target them directly, according to a former senior immigration official in the Obama administration. Democratic leaders and advocates within the immigration community are bracing for Trump on Monday to eliminate several of Obamaís executive actions on immigration, including the deferred action program, known as DACA, that protects an estimated 750,000 immigrants brought here illegally as children. Trump is not expected to immediately launch raids targeting the students, but fears among so-called...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain on Sunday said that he is still uncertain about whether President Trump will lead a successful administration. Asked if he has "confidence" in America's new commander in chief, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee twice said: "I do not know." "I do not know because has made so many comments that are contradictory," McCain told ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "But I think the fact that he's appointed and nominated these outstanding individuals is bound to be an encouraging sign," he continued. "I trust them and have worked with them over many years."

  • Dan Rather: When Trump Lies, We Have To Call Him Out

    Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather is teaching an online course in journalism called ¬ďfinding the truth in the news¬Ē at UDemy. Now, he¬ís taken to Facebook to say that the media, the American people, and the political class has to call out President Trump on his lies. No, this isn¬ít the Onion.¬ďThese are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures,¬Ē wrote Rather. ¬ďWhat can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. "A lie, is a lie, is a lie!" And if someone won't say it, those...
  • ďAnti-FascistĒ Bully Gets Shot by Armed American at UW Yiannopoulos Event

    Last Friday, ďPeaceful protestersĒ at a Milo Yiannopoulos event picked the wrong person to attack. It happened at the University of Washington campus, where police tried to maintain order. As always, Yiannopoulos tends to draw out the radical left to violently oppose his speeches. The UW speech proved no exception. Those opposed to the Breitbart editorís speech donned masks and began to commit acts of violence. We all know that when ďpeaceful protestersĒ put on masks, they have no plans to distribute free Girl Scout cookies. Sure enough, the radical leftists threw bricks and paint, not Thin Mints, at police....

    Israelís prime minister on Sunday accepted an invitation to visit the White House next month in hopes of forging a ďcommon visionĒ for the region with President Donald Trump that could include expanded settlement construction on occupied territories and a tougher policy toward Iran. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his plans to head to Washington in early February hours after delaying a vote on an explosive proposal to annex one of the West Bankís largest settlements, apparently to coordinate his policy toward the Palestinians with the new administration. The move put on hold legislation that threatens to unleash fresh violence...

As a result, the district has hired non-credentialed bilingual instructional assistants who speak Arabic, Farsi, Dari, Pashto and Ukrainian to help newcomers understand classroom lessons.

    A disturbing Reddit thread claims that in 2008 the ex-business partner of James Alefantis, DC chef and restauranteur Carole Greenwood, caught Alefantis in the act of sexually battering her then 17 year-old son. Subsequent internet postings identified the location of the alleged crime scene as being Comet Ping Pong Pizza, a DC ping pong-themed pizzaria featuring live music acts. Citing a "family emergency", Greenwood abruptly terminated her business dealings with Alefantis and disappeared, finally surfacing as Executive Chef at Bethesda's Food & Wine Co. An anonymous poster to the thread, presumably Alefantis, objects to the dark story: "Why wouldn't I...
