This is a remarkable day in the history of our country. We have never over our centuries inaugurated a man like Donald Trump as president of the United States. You can select any random group of former presidents — Madison, Lincoln, Hoover, Carter — and none of them are like Trump. We’ve never had a major national leader as professionally unprepared, intellectually ill informed, morally compromised and temperamentally unfit as the man taking the oath on Friday. So let’s not lessen the shock factor that should reverberate across this extraordinary moment. It took a lot to get us here. It took a
A confidential David Brock memo obtained by the Washington Free Beacon lays out the ways the Democratic operative plans to use his numerous organizations to take down President Donald Trump through impeachment. Brock is currently at the Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, Fla. for a weekend conference with more than 100 major liberal donors. Attendees are mapping out a course to combat the newly sworn-in president. According to the private and confidential memo, Brock plans to defeat Trump “through impeachment,” using American Bridge, his liberal super PAC, as the main vehicle to do so. “No other progressive organization has the resources and assets
Wearing pink, pointy-eared "pussyhats" to mock the new president, hundreds of thousands of women massed in the nation´s capital and cities around the globe Saturday to send Donald Trump an emphatic message that they won´t let his agenda go unchallenged over the next four years. "We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war," actress America Ferrera told the Washington crowd. "Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. ...
I am no stranger to protesting, having marched so often in the sixties and seventies that I sometimes felt as if I were chanting "Hey, hey, LBJ" in my sleep. But I have come to think over the years that too much demonstrating can get to be a bad habit, like smoking. Now I´m not talking here about the Gloria Steinems and Michael Moores, for whom protest is so much a way of life they couldn´t exist without it. Or the Madonnas who, like other entertainment stalwarts, have business reasons for constantly reminding us they are still have their "edge" even

Fuel economy gains have moved at a snail’s pace in the U.S., thanks to drivers’ love of pickup trucks and lower sales of hybrid vehicles. New vehicles sold in 2016 averaged 23.7 miles per gallon, compared with 23.3 miles per gallon in 2015 and 19.9 miles per gallon a decade ago, analysts at Tudor Pickering Holt said in a recent note. That 1.7% improvement in 2016 is only a squeak more than the 10-year average gains of 1.6%: One major headwind to fuel economy is Americans’ “seemingly insatiable appetite for trucks,” the analysts said. Trucks’ fuel economy averaged 21 miles
Never mind the Russians. It was Hillary Clinton who was actually trying to sabotage the 2016 Presidential Election, according to a WikiLeaks release. The information released shows that the Hillary Clinton campaign staffers bribed six Republicans to “destroy Trump”.
