    • The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

      While everyone's been gearing up for President Trump's inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: For all intents and purposes, it's closing its doors. In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we've said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with "charity," either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States. There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

      In a strong message that serves as warning to those intent on disregarding the rules in national parks, including Yellowstone, a judge sentenced two members of the filmmaking group High on Life SundayFundayz to jail time. A third member who also pled guilty avoided jail but was fined Thursday, just as two others from the group did in November when they appeared before Magistrate Judge Mark Carman and pled guilty. The Canadian group, consisting of five men, ignored warnings and broke laws, and videotaped and photographed its antics, then posted them on Facebook. The group’s most egregious actions came on May 16, 2016 at Yellowstone National Park where four members disregarded warning signs and

    • Trump's first executive action: Cancel Obama's mortgage premium cuts

      WASHINGTON — The very first executive action by the new Trump administration wasn't a sweeping order on immigration, trade or health care — but rather to block an Obama administration that would have reduced the cost of mortgages for millions of home buyers. In the first hour of Trump's presidency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sent a letter to lenders, real estate brokers and closing agents suspending the 0.25 percentage point premium rate cut for Federal Housing Administration-backed loans. That cut would have saved home buyers about $29 a month on a $200,000 mortgage. But Republicans cast the move as hasty and said it threatened to undermine the stability of the system.

    • President Trump’s Inauguration Crowd Doesn’t Look Like Barack Obama’s Did in 2009

      A side-by-side comparison of the crowds at former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump‘s respective inaugurations reveals that Trump’s crowd isn’t as large as he boasted it would be. Two aerial photographs of the National Mall from the two historic days reveal large patches of white ground exposed during Trump’s ceremony, spaces crowds had filled during Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Federal and local agencies estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people would be in Washington, D.C. for Trump’s inauguration on Friday, roughly half the number of people who attended Obama’s first presidential inauguration.

There was the red Narciso Rodriguez dress Michelle Obama wore to give her final address, mirroring the style she wore on election night in 2008 by the same designer. Then, there was a navy lace ensemble by Jason Wu for her husband's farewell address, a final nod to a label she's supported (and help grow) throughout her two terms in office. Now, as we gear up to say goodbye to her incredible style legacy, the 44th FLOTUS is giving us one last look to pour over, dissect, and remember her by. As is tradition,

Mathilde Broberg, 22, lost the excess pounds partially by cutting out junk food, exercising avidly and following the “teaspoon diet,” where she measured out her food and ate with a teaspoon to ensure that the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand.
