Trump's Migrant Family Policy Now Moves To The Courts

The controversy over President Trump's executive order to end the policy of separating migrant families who cross into the U.S. illegally is shifting to the courts. On Thursday, the Department of Justice asked a federal judge in California to relax certain limitations on how long and under what conditions the government can detain migrant children. In another courtroom in California, a different federal judge will hear arguments on Friday in a case about family separations and the status of...

On the Wings of a Dove

House Republican leaders will start the coming week the same way they started last week: facing partywide insurrection over an immigration bill that has been repeatedly sabotaged by President Trump.

Two of the things President Trump likes most are winning and loyalty and both have clearly been on the president's mind as he's doled out prized political endorsements this year.

For candidates this cycle in a Republican primary, winning Trump's endorsement is political gold. It can push them over the finish line in a tough race, and it gives the president a chance to claim credit for their victories and get some of the glory.

Turkey Elections: Erdogan Wins Second Term

3 hours ago

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won a second five-year term on Sunday in an election granting the Turkish leader unprecedented executive powers.

Addressing supporters from the Justice and Development Party or AKP headquarters in the nation's capital hours after his victory, Erdogan claimed Turkey's 81 million residents were the winners of the hotly contested election, state run media Anadolu reported.

The Trump administration has released its plan for reuniting children who have been separated from their parents as a result of the president's "zero tolerance" immigration policy, but in a fact sheet issued on Saturday, it provided no timeline for when those reunifications will happen.

Donald Hall, a former poet laureate of the United States whose writing explored everything from nature to mortality to the toss of a baseball, has died at the age of 89.

Hall died on Saturday at his family farm, known as Eagle Pond, in the small town of Wilmot, N.H. His death was announced by his literary agent, Wendy Strothman.

Hall was a prolific author who began writing when he was just 12 years old. Over the course of a career that spanned more than seven decades, he wrote over 40 books, about half of which were works of poetry.

Cigarettes After Sex have a new song, "Crush," recorded at the same time they recorded their outstanding self-titled album released last year, and it's so good that it could have been the standout track on it. There's no official video at this time but its moody atmospheric sound lends itself well to visuals, as demonstrated by a couple of well-produced fan edits. The following video comes from the YouTube channel i'm cyborg but that's ok , one that's dedicated to pairing hip tunes with hip...

'Born Trump' Examines The 'Emotional Hold' The President Has On His Family

Much has been written about Donald Trump as a politician and as a businessman, but a new book by Vanity Fair journalist Emily Jane Fox looks at the president through a different lens: as the head of a family. Fox's new book, Born Trump: Inside America's First Family , focuses on Trump's three marriages and five children — as well as on his relationship with son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner. Fox describes Trump as an unconventional father who "spent time with the children on his terms,...
