Leaked audio comments from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg include him saying that the tech company would likely have no choice but to sue the U.S. government to stave off being broken up if Elizabeth Warren becomes president. The comments, obtained by The Verge, span a wide range of topics and deep insight into Zuckerberg's thinking, going much further than the usually stoic CEO appears in public. "You have someone like Elizabeth Warren thinks that the right answer is to break up the companies … I mean, if she gets elected president then I would bet that we will have a

When Teddy Roosevelt's trust busters broke up John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil into several companies, John D. Rockefeller became even more wealthy.

Warren has Wall Street and U.S Corporation scared witless. If she or Bernie becomes the nominee, they will do what it takes to shoot them down.

If somehow Warren got elected, in some bizarre alternate universe, we would all be living in teepees and eating our dogs. But, there's nothing wrong with breaking up Facebook or subjecting them to a little regulation of some type, as they are nothing but a propaganda outlet for leftist lies and propaganda. They won't allow Christians and conservatives to offer their opinions, as American citizens come to expect. That makes Facebook decidedly un-American.

When they broke up Ma Bell, the smaller companies that emerged made many stockholders a lot of money; much more than if they hadn't broken her up. I know, because I made quite a bit back then. But I got nothing with Facebook, so it's no concern to me.

Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign could be "blown up" by suspicions over Joe's and his son Hunter's dealings with Ukraine, according to one of his top allies. "This whole thing could go two ways for him," said Ed Rendell, 75, a former Pennsylvania governor. "If Trump’s ads are significantly good, even if they’re all lies. It could hurt Joe. Voters get tired. Joe's popular point was that he could get back to normalcy, and that gets blown up if voters think he'll be bogged down with Republican investigations when he's in office."

WASHINGTON — Progressive Democrats are advocating the most dramatic shift in tax policy in over a century as they look to redistribute wealth and chip away at the economic power of the super rich with new taxes that could fundamentally reshape the United States economy.

Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and felt instantly drawn to a particular dish on the menu? The reason might be something as simple as that you love the dish’s main ingredient, but it’s often more than that. It could be the item’s placement on the menu, its name, even whom you saw eating it as you crossed the restaurant. Understanding all the factors that attract us to certain foods is a growing area of research, with enormous potential for addressing something unexpected: climate change. Agriculture — and the changes in land-use it necessitates — accounts for about 25% of

Cruise ships are big business for port cities around the world. But starting next year, Cannes, one of the world's most famous ports-of-call, will no longer welcome them unless they comply with strict pollution controls. Passengers who choose to sail on dirty vessels will have to disembark elsewhere. So far, the industry doesn't seem worried. It should be. Increasingly, consumers are voicing concerns about the environmental effects of their travel and pressuring companies that don't meet their heightened standards. In Europe, "flight shaming" has dented airlines’ earnings as travelers look for low-carbon alternatives. The cruise industry, far less necessary to

BIDDEFORD, Maine — Former Democratic President Bill Clinton and former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush are pining for the days when the two parties worked together. The two appeared together to talk about strengthening America’s commitment to education on Friday at the University of New England. Partnering with the George & Barbara Bush Foundation, the university used the 30th anniversary of the late President George H.W. Bush’s 1989 Education Summit as the jumping-off point for the discussion. Clinton and Bush also spoke of the elder Bush’s “kinder, gentler” brand of politics during an era of bipartisan achievements.

The most expensive lots are a Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, valued at between 4.8m and 5.7m euros ($5.2-6.2m) and a yellow

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a new interview scoffed at the unwanted touching allegations against Vice President Joseph R. Biden, saying voters need to “get over it” and vote President Trump out of office. Sitting down with People magazine in a joint interview with daughter Chelsea Clinton, Mrs. Clinton dismissed speculation that women might be less than enthusiastic about voting for Mr. Biden after several women came forward this spring and accused him of unwanted touching. The former vice president has since apologized for putting people in uncomfortable situations. “For goodness’ sake, I’m sorry, I have to jump in

Joe Biden’s corrupt dealings in Ukraine and those of his son must be investigated, and the time has come for him to drop out of the presidential race. While Biden served as vice president, his son Hunter was unaccountably making $50,000 a month “consulting” in an industry with which he was totally unfamiliar ­(energy), in a notoriously graft-prone country where he didn’t speak the language (Ukraine). Hunter made similarly sketchy deals with China. President Trump’s phone call this summer with his Ukrainian counterpart may have been ill-advised, but it simply didn’t rise to an impeachable offense. Meanwhile, the American people deserve to know the truth about the Biden family’s lucrative dealings

'I think the gutsiest thing I've ever done - well, personally - was make the decision to stay in my marriage,' the former First Lady said on Good Morning America Tuesday.

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense.

Democrats believe they can impeach President Donald John Trump with impunity. They figure it will be like Clinton's one-day trial and acquittal, which would allow them to scream injustice from now until forever. President Trump should extract the full price for their farce. Whilst the attorney general and inspector general continue investigating Hillarygate and Muellergate, President Trump should have fun with this by forcing Democrats to make their case to the American people. Just like they did with Clarence Thomas. Just like they did with Brett Kavanaugh. That means putting the whistle blower on the stand. The Constitution requires the accuser to face the accused.

The photo shows the 6-year-old girl, who is biracial and has autism, posing with an actor dressed as the movie character Gru from "Despicable Me" during a Universal Orlando breakfast event attended by the Zinger family in March. The character formed an upside-down "OK" symbol with his fingers, recognized by some as a hate symbol, on the girl's shoulder, according to a photo and video reviewed by USA TODAY.
