Two Republican Senators Are Pushing Trump To Protect "DREAMers"


By Buzzfeed, Dec. 01, 2016 

WASHINGTON — Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake are pushing the incoming Trump administration and their colleagues to protect young immigrants who were granted temporary protection against deportation — an uphill battle, given the president-elect’s hardline immigration views during the campaign.

Graham and Flake plan to propose legislation next year that will extend the protections for young immigrants, or “DREAMers,” that were granted through executive order by President Obama. President-elect Donald Trump ran on the promise of repealing that executive order, leaving more than 700,000 of those immigrants, who came to the U.S. at a young age illegally, in uncertainty.

Why 2016 is one of the worst years for domestic terrorism


By OC Register, Dec. 02, 2016 

A year ago today, terrorism struck home. A husband and wife shot and killed 14 people and injured 22 in San Bernardino.
It was horrific and repugnant. But it wasn’t the most lethal domestic terrorist event of the past year. Though terrorism remains a rare way to die in America, the first 11 months of 2016 produced more fatalities than any year since 2001.

By Washington Post, Dec. 02, 2016 

Hillary Clinton's campaign has lots of excuses for losing.

By The Blaze, Dec. 02, 2016 

Jake Horowitz, editor-in-chief of the liberal-leaning news site Mic, suggested that, after leaving the Oval Office, President Barack Obama might trade in his commander in chief title for a media mogul title. But, according to the White House, the outgoing president has no intentions of starting his own media company.

By Bloomberg, Dec. 03, 2016 

Ford Motor Co. was a target of Donald Trump’s criticism on the campaign trail for building cars in Mexico, and now that Trump will be president, Ford said it’s willing to work with him to keep jobs in the U.S. -- provided Trump puts the right policies in place, according to the automaker’s chief executive officer.

“We will be very clear in the things we’d like to see,” Mark Fields said in an exclusive interview Friday at Bloomberg offices in Southfield, Michigan.

Among them, according to Fields: currency-manipulation rules to promote free and fair trade, tax reform and safety guidelines for autonomous vehicles.

Since Trump's Election, Mark Zuckerberg's Net Worth Has Fallen $3.7 Billion


By Forbes, Dec. 03, 2016 

Four days after November’s presidential election, Mark Zuckerberg wrote a lengthy note downplaying the role that fake news on Facebook had in the outcome. More difficult for him to dispute, though, is the recent downward trajectory of his fortune; since November 8, Zuckerberg’s net worth has decreased by nearly $3.7 billion.

That figure is based on a 7% decline in Facebook’s share price between Election Day and the end of normal trading at 4:00 P.M. EST on Friday. Despite the fall, Zuckerberg is still the planet’s fifth-richest person, according to FORBES’ real-time rankings of the world’s billionaires, worth an estimated $49 billion.

By NY Post, Dec. 02, 2016 

Time for some traffic problems in Manhattan!

City officials have intentionally ground Midtown to a halt with the hidden purpose of making drivers so miserable that they leave their cars at home and turn to mass transit or bicycles, high-level sources told The Post.
