    • Forever stamps will cost more starting Sunday

      It might be called a "Forever" stamp, but not when it comes to the price of buying one. The cost of mailing a one-ounce first-class letter will return to being 49 cents, up from 47 cents, where it had been since April. The last increase came in January 2014, according to the U.S. Postal Service, when it went from 47 cents to 49 cents. Then last April, the Postal Regulatory Commission ordered the USPS to drop its prices for the first time in 97 years. Postmaster General Megan Brennan protested, saying, "given our precarious financial condition and ongoing business needs, the price reduction required by the PRC exacerbates our losses."

    • Tucker Carlson calls out “sham” paid protester company spokesperson: “This is a hoax”

      Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday evening had on his show “Dom Tullipso,” the self-proclaimed “director of operations” of Demand Protest, a fake protesters-for-hire website aiming to besmirch real left-wing protesters. Right out of the gate, Carlson called Demand Protest “a sham.” He went on: “Your company isn’t real, your website is fake, the claims you have made are lies, this is a hoax. Let me start at the beginning, however, with your name, Dom Tullipso, which is not your real name. It’s a fake name, we ran you through law enforcement-level background checks and that name does not exist. So let’s start out with the truth.

    • 8 Michelle Obama Quotes That Will Get You Through 2017 (8 photos)

      Happy birthday, Michelle Obama ! FLOTUS turns 53 years old today--during her last week in the White House, no less--and we can't help but get a little teary thinking about the grand impact she's had these past eight years. From creating her female education initiative, Let Girls Learn , to championing healthy living that's about more than just what you eat, Michelle has been revolutionary in more ways than one. Heck, even her style has changed the game for countless First Ladies to come. VIDEO: Michelle Obama's Best Looks of All Time 5121546754001 But perhaps what we'll remember most about this FLOTUS was her commitment to equality, in race, gender, class, and everything in between. No one says it better than her husband, President Barack Obama . "Michelle, for the past 25 years, you've been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn't ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor," he said in his farewell address. "You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You've made me proud. You've made the country proud." As we attempt to fix our supposedly waterproof mascara, join us in taking a look back at eight of Michelle's most inspirational quotes. We will miss you, FLOTUS.

    • These Examples Of Bill Belichick Roasting Tom Brady Are Hilarious, Yet Telling

      There are plenty of NFL coaches who wouldn’t dare call out Tom Brady. But Bill Belichick isn’t most NFL coaches. The New England Patriots head coach and quarterback have shared unprecedented success, teaming up to win four Super Bowls, six conference championships and 14 division titles. Brady, of course, has been at the center of that success, establishing a reputation as arguably the best quarterback ever. But if you think Brady is beyond Belichick’s reproach, you couldn’t be more wrong. In a revealing article published Wednesday, MMQB.com’s Jenny Vrentas spoke to several former Patriots who recalled times when Belichick was extremely critical of — even downright disrespectful to — his star

    • Fox News' Tucker Carlson perfectly exposed a guest trying to spread a hoax on air

      Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his interview Tuesday night with an unusual demand: "Tell me what your real name is." While the man Carlson was talking to claimed to be Dom Tullipso, director of operations for a business called Demand Protest, Carlson said a "law enforcement-level background check" revealed that name "does not exist" — and Carlson wasn't convinced Tullipso's business did either. The man never exactly admitted that the whole business is, in fact, a hoax, but he does give a pretty good display of what Carlson dubs "performance art." At one point, Tullipso (if that's really his name) claims his support for "national treasures such as Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and Peyton Manning." Yes, football-playing, Super Bowl-winning Peyton Manning.
