This Week: Wilbur Ross Gets Called Out By A Trump Appointee For Faulty Financial Report

The Office of Government Ethics on Friday told Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross that it would not certify the secretary’s annual financial disclosure because, essentially, Ross hadn’t told the truth. After submitting the required annual filing claiming that, among other things, he’d divested from his stock in BankUnited Inc. in early 2017, Ross submitted another filing claiming that, actually, he’d only divested from the stock in October 2018. As a result, the annual filing contained an error, ...

Space Force will be a Marines-like branch under Air Force authority

President Trump is expected to sign into creation the Space Force today, as a special branch of the military overseen by the Air Force Department, according to a report in The Washington Post.

Obama’s Golf Simulator Wasn’t Sophisticated Enough For Trump. So He Upgraded

Thanks to Axios, we now know that President Trump spends most of his work day in executive time, tending to his Twitter account, talking on the phone and watching TV. Now, add hitting the virtual links to that list. According to a new report from The Washington Post, President Trump paid out of his own pocket to replace the golf simulator that President Obama installed at the White House with a more “sophisticated” system, in the Post’s words.

The global tide is turning against Mohammed bin Salman | Financial Times

The global tide is turning against Mohammed bin Salman | Financial Times:The savage murder last year of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, dismembered by Saudi Arabia’s agents in its consulate in Istanbul, surprised in the way it accelerated into the worst crisis between the kingdom and the west since September 11 2001, when 15 of the 19 hijackers who attacked the US turned out to be Saudis. It seems just as surprising that, as 2019 progresses, there is little let-up in the pressure on the Saudi leader...

The Power of the Gospel and the Meltdown of Identity Politics

American politics increasingly resembles a soap opera and, at least for now, Virginia has taken center stage. The drama in the state continues to unfold as the Commonwealth’s top three Democrats face pressure to resign. The Governor’s personal yearbook page from medical school contained a racially insensitive photo of a man in blackface shoulder-to-shoulder with a person dressed in Ku Klux Klan regalia. Later, the Governor also admitted to performing in blackface at a party in the 1980s. The Att...

Impeachment Reluctantly Floated In VA After Second Allegation Against Fairfax

RICHMOND, Va.

Actor Terry Crews says the National Enquirer's publisher tried to 'silence' him with fake stories as Jeff Bezos accuses the tabloid of blackmail

Terry Crews has accused American Media Inc (AMI), publisher of the National Enquirer, of making up a false story to "silence" him.
