Today is tax day, and millions of Americans will have to show the government everything: their salaries and social security numbers, their expenses and their benefits, their profits and their losses. It’s like Uncle Sam is a peeping Tom, and he is every room in your house. And we gotta let him see it all, […]

President Donald Trump’s proposal to release detained undocumented immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities, categorically dismissed by the administration days ago, inched closer to reality on Sunday, with White House officials confirming that the controversial plan was back under consideration and urging immediate action in response to a surge of Central American migrants at the southern […]

Barack Obama don’t say much these days. He’s too busy chilling with Michelle, going on vacation, and trying to figure out how we voted in a reality star who rose to fame by telling folks—you’re fired. Over the last two years, Donald Trump has turned the White House into a real-life version of The Apprentice. […]

The forced resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is not just the usual story of an administration racked by chaos and the short shelf life of almost everyone who works for an imperious and grudge-bearing President.

With all that’s going on in the world—from climate change to wanton violence and political turmoil—I simply don’t have the energy to watch Saturday Night Live.

Beto O’Rourke announced Thursday he is running for president, entering the 2020 race with a call for Americans to look past their differences in order to confront the challenges facing the country. “This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us,” the 46-year-old Democratic former congressman from […]

President Donald Trump called on Monday for spending more U.S. taxpayer money on the military and a U.S.-Mexico border wall, while overhauling social safety-net programs in a budget plan likely to die in Congress but live on in his 2020 re-election campaign. Like past presidential budget proposals, Trump’s plan was highly unlikely to become law. […]

Sixteen states on Monday evening filed a lawsuit challenging President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration. The group of states, led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, filed the lawsuit in the US District Court for the Northern District of California. “We’re going to try to halt the President from violating the Constitution, the separation of […]

President Donald Trump intends to sign the border security deal to avoid another partial government shutdown, according to two sources who have spoken directly with the President. Trump said Tuesday that he was “not happy” with the tentative deal reached by congressional negotiators late Monday night that falhls far short of his original demands. Congress […]

Paul Manafort intentionally lied to investigators and a federal grand jury in the special counsel in the Russia probe, a judge ruled Wednesday. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson was another loss for the former Trump campaign chairman, who faces years in prison in two separate criminal cases stemming from special counsel […]

The nation faces the real possibility of another government shutdown at the end of the week, after bipartisan talks aimed at averting that outcome broke down in a dispute over immigration enforcement, lawmakers and aides said Sunday.
