President Trump is creating a new “White House Office of American Innovation” (read: a new bureaucracy) with his son-in-law Jared Kushner at the helm. Kushner said over the weekend: “The government should be run like a great American company.”

It’s literally an impossibility.

The colon, which was outside of the Knights of Columbus Club, is on tour with the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada. Organizers say the giant inflatable section of the digestive system is a way to bring awareness to colon cancer. Continue reading
As long as the “tax honesty” community continues to embrace, or even just tolerate, a cacophony of unharmonious notions, the path to victory will continue to elude far too many good folks.
SO, THE STORY GOES LIKE THIS: Back in the day, humans were getting confident in themselves. They decided to build a tower to the heavens in a city called Babel. Continue reading
Russia claims to have created a devastating hypersonic missile that travels five times faster than the speed of sound and could rip through navy warship defences because it’s too fast to stop.

Eastview, KY — Kaytlin McClure didn’t call the police. She had no need to do so. She was just minding her own business in her own home this week, when the police dropped by late at night to pay her a visit. They were canvassing the neighborhood and wanted McClure’s help with their search for a fugitive. But rather than catching their man, they shot her dog.
An 18-year-old Maryland high school student is facing charges related to an alleged plot to attack her school in April using a shotgun and explosive materials. She kept a detailed journal of her plans and the school’s emergency procedures.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A 22-year-old officer and new recruit died Monday morning after a shootout with a man who fled a traffic stop in central Oklahoma, police said. Officer Justin Terney was shot several times late Sunday and died after undergoing surgery overnight, Tecumseh Assistant Police Chief J.R. Kidney said.
Terney had only graduated from the police academy last summer, Kidney said. “He was a very young officer, just getting a start,” he said. “He was taken way too soon.” The man who fired on Terney was also shot multiple times and in intensive care Monday morning, Kidney said. Police have not released his identity. Continue reading
SEATTLE (AP) — Sixteen months after he declared a state of emergency on homelessness, Seattle’s mayor is asking voters in this liberal, affluent city for $55 million a year in new taxes to fight the problem.
Some are pushing back, saying the city already spends millions to combat homelessness, and things appear to have gotten worse, not better. In making his case, Mayor Ed Murray says the problem has grown exponentially and federal and state help is unlikely. He wants voters to support a proposed ballot initiative that would increase property taxes to raise $275 million over five years for homeless services — almost doubling what Seattle spends each year.

Once the ostensible reasons of the war that caused the death and displacement of hundreds of thousands of people in Syria are set aside we need to look 200 years back in order to understand what has actually happened. The main target of the “Big Game” that had gradually developed by the onset of 19th century was to disintegrate and weaken Russia and the Ottoman Empire, the two great powers of the North Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Caucasus.
On its ‘Today Show’ earlier this morning, NBC revealed that it has signed former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest as a political analyst. Earnest is expected to provide political commentary on NBC and MSNBC.
And, in an hilarious welcoming statement, the Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie warned Earnest that he would now have to disavow himself of his political bias to provide impartial political analysis…just before inviting him to take shots at Republicans. Continue reading
