    President Donald Trump wants his supporters to counter the massive protests against his administration by staging a rally of their own. The president tweeted on Saturday that a demonstration staged by his voters would be 'the biggest of them all.' 'Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally,' Trump tweeted on Saturday. Since taking office and enacting controversial measures, Trump has watched as thousands have taken to the streets in the United States and abroad to denounce him. With the Academy Awards scheduled for Sunday, Hollywood has also waded into the political dispute. Jodie...

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) hit another record new high on Thursday! It was the 10th straight daily market close where the DOW set a new stock market high. This incredible rally started back on February 9th. In the history of the DOW, going back to January 1901, the DOW record for most continuous closing high trading days was set in January of 1987 when Ronald Reagan was President. The DOW set closing highs an amazing 12 times in a row that month. Only two other times has the DOW reached 10 days in a row of closing highs...

    Given that continued rise in the stock market, it’s no wonder that Mr. Trump wants to take credit for it. Investor and traders say that the gains reflect hopes that Mr. Trump will enact business-friendly policies like lower corporate taxes, looser regulations and infrastructure spending. As many are quick to point out, if Mr. Trump takes credit for the stock market rally, he also must take credit for any reversal. And many are worried that market is getting ahead of itself as valuations rise even without full clarity on the administration’s policy priorities, setting stocks up for a resurgence in...

    Radical leftists are planning to make Jan. 20 the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history. Their stated goal is to "disrupt" the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of actions to achieve that stated goal. Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as "civil resistance" and "civil disobedience," but others are openly talking about "blockades," jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and "citywide paralysis." My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well-funded,...

    End Of America ^ | 11/14/16 | Michael Snyder
    We have seen very large protests in major cities all over America since Donald Trump won the election, but the biggest one of all is being planned for January 20th.  Radical leftists are calling for thousands upon thousands of activists to descend upon Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day, and they are planning to disrupt the inauguration festivities as much as they possibly can. And if you doubt that the “Not My President” movement can pull this off, you may want to consider that 25,000 protesters showed up in New York City on Saturday on very short notice. These people are bitter, angry,...

    Following reports Wednesday morning of possible cuts in American military aid to Israel, Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated that the Obama administration was prepared to give the biggest military aid package in history, calling it “the largest single pledge of military assistance from the United States to any country in our history, cementing an unparalleled security relationship all the way to 2029". Blinken’s comments came during his address at the Herzliya Conference Wednesday afternoon. While the Deputy Secretary indicated the White House was likely to increase aid to Israel, he emphasized the Jewish state’s need to take concrete...

The mirror inside the telescope will measure 39metres across - four times wider than today's biggest telescope - and it will be so powerful that astronomers will even be able to observe dark, rocky planets far beyond our solar system. The European Southern Observatory project is supported by 15 members of the European Union and has the catchy name 'European Extremely Large Telescope'... even if it will be built in Chile, to avoid light...

    Frenetic star-forming activity in the early Universe is linked to the most massive galaxies in today's cosmos, new research suggests. This "starbursting" activity when the Universe was just a few billion years old appears to have been clamped off by the growth of supermassive black holes. An international team gathered hints of the mysterious "dark matter" in early galaxies to confirm the link. The findings appear in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. ... Using the 12-metre Atacama Pathfinder Experiment telescope in Chile, an international team led by Ryan Hickox of Dartmouth College studied the way distant galaxies from...

A team led by an astronomer at the University of California at Berkeley discovered the two gigantic black holes in clusters of galaxies 300 million light years away. That's relatively close on the galactic scale.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Inflation took a bigger bite out of consumers' wallets over the last 12 months, with September marking the biggest rise in three years. But at the same time, monthly price increases are starting to slow. The Consumer Price Index, the government's key measure of inflation at the retail level, jumped 3.9% in September from the year before. Higher food and energy prices again were the biggest culprits, with food 4.7% more expensive than a year earlier, and energy prices jumping 19.3%. Even core CPI, which strips out volatile food and energy prices, posted a 2% gain...

    The maternity business has experienced a recession, too, it appears. Births fell 4% from 2007 to 2009, the biggest drop for any two-year period since the mid-1970s, according to federal government data released Thursday. The rate, 66.7 births per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44, isn't the lowest in recent memory. The 1997 rate was an all-time low of 63.6. But the authors of the report say preliminary data show the birth rate continued falling through the first half of 2010. (Snip) Fewer families are having more than two children. Almost 75% of births in 2009 were first or second

    N THE age-old war between cats and dogs, canines might just have struck the killer blow. A border collie called Chaser has been taught the names of 1022 items - more than any other animal. She can also categorise them according to function and shape, something children learn to do around the age of 3. Chaser follows in the footsteps of Rico, who trained at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. Rico had a "vocabulary" of 200 words and could identify new objects in a group of familiar objects by a process of elimination, according to...

    The biggest airline in the world will have the United name, Continental's globe logo and potentially far-reaching effects on air travel. Shareholders who on Friday approved combining the two companies hope the new airline attracts more top-dollar corporate travelers with its larger network while reducing costs. Some industry watchers expect the deal to lead to higher fares, but United and Continental say competition from low-cost airlines is sufficient to keep prices from rising.
