Even before its feud over the national anthem with President Trump, the NFL Players Association wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist advocacy groups. Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society. A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open

European Union regulators sent a warning to any company using fees on intellectual property rights to shift profits away from the taxman -- slapping Amazon.com Inc. with a 250 million-euro ($294 million) bill and giving Luxembourg another rap on the knuckles. The EU took a dim view of a structure that allowed Amazon to slash its taxable profits in Europe over about a decade by channeling them to a tax-free unit located in Luxembourg that was meant to license the technology behind its web shopping platform. Officials found one big problem with the arrangement: the unit was just a shell

Washington - The Trump administration is poised to roll back the federal requirement for employers to include birth control coverage in their health insurance plans, vastly expanding exemptions for those that cite moral or religious objections. The new rules, which could be issued as soon as Friday, fulfill a campaign promise by President Trump and are sure to touch off a round of lawsuits on the issue. (Snip) One new rule offers an exemption to any employer or insurer that objects to covering contraceptive services “based on its sincerely held religious beliefs.” Another regulation offers a new exemption to employers that have

Tech support staff discovered the suspected breach after Kelly turned his phone in to White House tech support this summer complaining that it wasn’t working or updating software properly.

WASHINGTON — The partisan gap that already divided Americans into increasingly estranged camps has widened even further in President Donald Trump´s first year in office, largely because Democrats have moved to the left on a wide range of issues, a new large-scale, nonpartisan poll has found. On issues as varied as government aid to the poor, immigration and the role of diplomacy versus military force, Americans who identify themselves as Democrats or independents who generally side with the Democrats have shifted to more liberal positions in the last several years. That shift has become even more pronounced in the last

We’re used to anti-gun zealots shamelessly using national horrors to take political cheap shots, but following the Las Vegas massacre, they’ve hit a new low by blaming masculinity for the bloodshed that shocked our nation. Matthew Dowd, a strategist for the Bush-Cheney 2004 presidential campaign who is now a chief political analyst at ABC News, said in a tweet that what needs to change in America is “a culture celebrating guns equating them with strength combined with a bizarre antiquated manhood.”Gun Violence Is Not a Growing Problem, Despite Reports -Anti-gun activists would like you to think that gun violence is

Washington DC - Donald Trump will reportedly decertify the Iran nuclear deal – a move that could throw another wrench into the US´s diplomatic ties with other world powers. Under the 2015 agreement with six nations – including the US, UK and France – Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear programme for at least 10 years in exchange for the loosening of economic sanctions that had crippled its economy. According to people briefed on the matter, the President believes the agreement is not in the national interest and will punt the issue over to Congress, the Washington Post reported.

I went to jail. I came back to the United States to do it, people forget about that, or don’t even know. I then was locked up here after this festival [in 2009]. So in the sum, I did about four or five times more than what was promised to me.” On Wednesday, German actress Renate Langer, 61, publicly accused Polanski of raping her on
