Embattled Trump Inaugural Committee Failed To Disclose Key Finances To IRS

President Trump’s inaugural committee failed to disclose to the IRS how much money it received in ticket revenue, TPM has found after reviewing the group’s tax filings, a failure that tax experts find perplexing.  The Trump inaugural committee’s failure to identify the revenue it generated from the sale of tickets and other perks broke with the practice of previous inaugural committees. In doing so, the tax return that the committee filed with the IRS obscured a key metric of how it raised its...

The CEO of Kroger, America's largest supermarket chain, explains why the company's merger with the country's 6th-favorite grocer puts them in the perfect position to take on Amazon and Whole Foods (KR)

Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen spoke about his company's omnichannel strategy at the National Retail Federation's 2019 Big Show. In an interview with the CNBC anchor Sara Eisen, McMullen discussed how Kroger's merger with the grocery chain Harris Teeter had spurred a digital expansion. The Kroger CEO and chairman said the 2014 merger was a response to the belief that Amazon would eventually acquire or create a physical grocery chain. In 2017, Amazon confirmed those suspicions by acquiring Whole Fo...

Voting Rights: Will Iowa Be The Next State To Let Felons Vote?

Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is looking to roll back the state’s ban on felon voting, she announced this week. Iowa is one of three states with constitutions that permanently ban convicted felons from voting unless the governor choses to restore the felon’s franchise. Reynolds proposed in her Condition of the State speech a constitutional amendment, which would need to go through the legislature, to change the current system, though the details of the proposal are still unclear.

The Unfinished Business of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. | Imam Zaid Shakir

During these days many in this country are commemorating the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., born January 15, 1929. While most remember Dr. King for his soaring oration, symbolized by his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered before a sweltering throng at the Lincoln Memorial, August 28, 1963, Dr. King was far more than a moving orator. He was a formidable intellectual, an effective organizer and a passionate advocate for the freedom of his people. These qualities combined with...

All We Did Was Survive: The State of the Pro-Life Movement Under President Trump

ABSTRACT: The pro-life movement in America seemed in dire straits in 2016, with losses on almost every front. Donald Trump’s surprising win appears to have stalled the abortion juggernaut. An escape, however, is not a triumph. Dunkirk was not Normandy. Abortion is here to stay as long as millions of young Christians are uninformed, unequipped, and unconcerned. We asked Scott Klusendorf, president of Life Training Institute, to give a state of the movement on the pro-life cause under t...

What Was Up Between Cohen, Trump During Period Covered In BuzzFeed Blockbuster?

A potentially momentous Thursday BuzzFeed report provided the clearest-cut indication yet that President Trump may have violated federal law. Two federal law enforcement sources told the publication that Trump personally directed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about matters related to the Russia investigation—an order that Trump’s own attorney general nominee believes would constitute obstruction of justice. No other publication has yet verified BuzzFeed’s story. And b...

A look at Birdies, the popular slipper shoe startup that just raised $8 million more from investors

Bianca Gates is a first-generation American, her parents having immigrated to the U.S. from Latin America. As such, she says, after waitressing her way through college at UC Irvine, she was expected to get a safe job with a 401(k) plan and to live with her parents until she was married. Things haven’t gone exactly that way, but one can imagine Gates’s parents feeling pretty satisfied with their daughter’s trajectory nevertheless. The reason: Gates, along with cofounder Marisa Sharkey, are the co...
