Dare I think we might get returns on our savings in excess of 0.01%--or (hold breath) more? I look forward to being on a first name basis with the tellers again. (Part /S and part frabjous day outburst.)

WASHINGTON – House Republicans are passing around a letter expressing support for “swift action” by the incoming Trump administration to relocate America’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to a copy obtained by The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday. The letter, which has not yet obtained any signatures, is addressed to the president-elect’s transition team in Trump Tower, indicating the caucus’s intent to send it before Donald Trump’s inauguration next week. “Moving the embassy will strengthen the unique alliance between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel in recognizing

Hillary Clinton warns of rising authoritarianism

Hillary Clinton sang a somber tune as she joined three other secretaries of state at an opening of the U.S. Diplomacy Center, a museum space at the State Department Tuesday evening. Clinton warned the crowd of diplomats –who greeted her with screams and claps – that ´democracy, freedom and rule of law are under attack around the world,´ adding that ´authoritarianism and illiberalism´ were threatening the foundations of the post-World War II era. Noting a particular exhibit in the 40,000-foot addition to the Foggy Bottom compound, she brought up the Cold War. ´We would do well to remember what it feels like to

Barack Obama paid tribute to his ´brother´, Joe Biden, on Tuesday as he gave an emotional farewell speech in Chicago. Looking back on his eight years in office, the outgoing President paid homage to his wife, his daughters and the American people - but seemed to save a special place in his heart for his VP. Biden was sitting with wife Jill as the President finished talking about his daughters, Malia and Sasha, and then moved on to a man who he clearly holds almost as dear to his heart. ´To Joe Biden, the scrappy kid from Scranton who became Delaware´s favorite son:

$5 million price on the heads of ex-Guantanamo

Two ex-Guantanamo Bay inmates who went through a Saudi Arabian ´rehab program´ are among the world´s most wanted men after returning to terrorism. The State Department has put a $5 million price on the heads of Othman al Ghamdi and Ibrahim al Rubaysh, who became leaders of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula after they were freed. The two have been wanted since 2009 - and now a former Pentagon spokesman is warning that if the president goes through with plans to move up to 19 more Guantanamo inmates before he leaves office, others will join the jihad.

Gunfire has been heard outside a Turkish police station as suicide bombers cause mass casualties in Kabul. Two loud explosions rocked the Afghan capital killing an unconfirmed number of people, while local media in Turkey say a terrorist has been shot dead in an attempted attack in Gaziantep. Two suspected accomplices are believed to have fled the scene, the station said, citing local journalists. The attacker shot at police who returned fire at the assailants who may have been planning a suicide bombing, NTV reported. Several ambulances are said to have been set to the area. Turkey is on edge following a spate of

Hillary Clinton has another reason not to run for mayor of New York – longtime nemesis Rudy Giuliani is hinting that her reentry into the political arena would cause the resumption of investigations against her. Giuliani got asked about Clinton´s future prospects after Newsmax reported on aides and donors floating the failed presidential candidate as a potential candidate for his old job. ´Youv´e gotta be kidding,´ Giuliani told ´Fox and Friends´ on Tuesday. ´No – not again not that story again,´ he added. Then, playing out the scenario, Giuliani said: ´I don´t´ know – I guess all of the investigations

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep´s speech or the Golden Globes coverage. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he

Barbra Streisand is standing with Meryl Streep, who used her acceptance speech at Sunday´s Golden Globe Awards to criticize Donald Trump for lacking empathy and infamously mocking a disabled reporter in 2015. A day after Streep delivered her blistering rebuke of the president-elect, Streisand called in to Hardball With Chris Matthews and expressed her solidarity. I thought that [Streep] said what she said beautifully, Streisand remarked. Regarding Trump´s ridiculing of journalist Serge F. Kovaleski 14 months ago, Streisand added, I completely agree with Meryl. It was a heartbreaking moment and so beneath the dignity of the presidency, let alone any respectful person.

Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

One Silicon Valley executive had a few choice words to describe Americans living in the heart of the nation, and they were not flattering. Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up, tweeted out Saturday afternoon describing what middle America could do to “get more jobs in their area.” Byerley says that the first thing those in middle America need to realize is that “no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “sh**hole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do
