    • Trump faces lawsuit for violating Constitution two days after taking oath

      An all-star team of lawyers, including two leading experts on presidential ethics and two of the most prominent constitutional scholars in the nation, will file a lawsuit on Monday challenging President Trump’s ongoing violation of an anti-corruption provision in the Constitution. Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, does regular business with foreign governments, presenting them with an opportunity to launder unconstitutional gifts to the president. Although Trump announced at a press conference prior to his inauguration that he would take some steps to insulate himself from his company, Norm Eisen, former chief ethics counsel to President Obama and Richard Painter, who held the same job under President George W. Bush, released a statement saying that these steps are insufficient.

      On Saturday, women, men, children, and even pets , from all walks of life, on all seven continents ( yes, including Antartica ) joined together in solidarity for the Women’s March. While the marches took place in cities worldwide, Washington, D.C. was the epicenter for the movement, where hundreds of thousands descended upon the city in attempts to stand up not only for women’s rights, but for human rights, and to send a message that climate change is real, and it is up to us to stop it. High estimates for D.C.’s march state up to 680,000 people rallied on the streets of the nation’s capital.

No arrests were made . It signifies that, even though many say the country is divided, there is still clearly a lot of unity still in the land.

    • This is the U.S. Army’s new pistol of choice

      After more than two years of searching the Army has finally settled on the pistol that will replace the branch’s nearly 32-year-old sidearm. The up-to $580 million contract for the “Modular Handgun System” has been awarded to Sig Sauer, a German firearms company, according to a release from the Army. The Army’s aging 9mm M9 Beretta will be replaced by a variant of Sig’s P320 pistol. “By maximizing full and open competition across our industry partners, we have optimized private sector advancements in handguns, ammunition and magazines and the end result will ensure a decidedly superior weapon system for our warfighters,” said Army Acquisition Executive, Steffanie Easter in an emailed statement.
