Not so, however, with the 15 sites listed in the article below. Every last one of them offers free refunds, and with return shipping on the house to boot. What better reason to start shopping the interwebs?

      “Mr. President, back off,” Greta Van Susteren said as she wrapped her MSNBC program addressing Donald Trump having taken to calling the press the “enemy” of the American people. Meanwhile, over at her former network, Fox News Channel, Trump was applauded and defended for the remark by Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly.  O’Reilly went with the argument the press is aligned with “with a political movement” and therefore is no longer objective or free.

    • Trump's Russia scandal takes an unexpected turn

      On Friday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey delivered a classified, hour-long briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Russia scandal, and soon after, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent "formal requests to more than a dozen organizations, agencies and individuals, asking them to preserve all materials related to the committee's investigation" into the controversy. Reading between the lines, this makes it sound as if the Republican-led panel is trying to knock down the idea that a special select committee is necessary to investigate the scandal without political interference. A day later, Reuters reported that the FBI is pursuing "at least three separate probes" related to Russian intervention in American politics, "according to five current and former government officials with direct knowledge of the situation." Two of three, according to the report, relate to alleged cyber-crimes, while the third is the ongoing counter-espionage probe.

    • Vince McMahon fired The Rock before Raw went on the air

      We knew The Rock would be appearing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California to do something for the crowd before Monday Night Raw went on the air this evening, because he told us. And he did just that, hyping up the crowd while letting them know to stick around after the show to be a part of filming a movie he’s working on. You knew they would run an angle, though. Sure enough, after he was done doing his thing, Vince McMahon showed up to fire him (the first video cuts off right as the firing is happening, the second is right after it happened): Hopefully WWE releases a better video later. We’ll pass it along if they do.

    • When a Pimp's "Bottom Girl" Does the Dirty Work, She's Often the One Who Ends Up Punished

      A particularly poignant example comes from a 2012 case Melton tried as a San Antonio prosecutor. Melton went after a pimp who had sold a 16-year-old girl for sex over two years. The girl suffered horrific abuse at his hands—she was raped, impregnated, and forced to have an abortion. When she tried to run away, the pimp carved his initials into her forearm. The pimp got a 20-year sentence. A year later, the same girl was 19 and headed to prison herself. A federal judge sentenced her to three years for helping her new pimp recruit a San Antonio high school student. Melton said what happened to the girl, who never received treatment, broke her heart. "It's a great example of the cyclical nature

But the name of one longtime confidante, and perhaps her most trusted friend, won't be announced with a news release or statement or a new title: her sister, Ines Knauss. Knauss, Trump's older sister, lives just blocks from Trump Tower in the Trump Park Avenue property, public records confirm. She was Trump's maid of honor at her 2005 Palm Beach wedding, People magazine reported at the time.
