    He's been in the blue suit for five years. But Henry Cavill is reportedly hanging up his Superman cape as scheduling conflicts lead Warner Bros to rule out any future appearances for the actor as the DC Extended Universe superhero. The Hollywood Reporter write that Henry, who has played Superman in three films, can't commit to a planned cameo in Shazam! and the studio is now also reportedly putting a stop to any future appearances in the franchise.

    Police have responded to the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC after an anonymous threat to shoot up a meeting there supporting President Donald Trump. The threat was made ahead of the planned Tuesday evening event by an anonymous Twitter account that supports the Democratic Socialists, a far-left political group. 'I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,' the account wrote, referencing the Trump campaign slogan 'Make American Great Again'. The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the threat, department spokesman Hugh Carew told DailyMail.com, adding that no further details were immediately...

    From The Season Of Healing Department - Bathhouse Romper Functioning As Priest In DC Is the following account typical of what we might expect in Cardinal Wuerl's "season of healing"?  George Neumayr smoked this out.  Seven years ago in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, a Carmelite priest was arrested after he touched the buttocks of an 18-year old man.  The perp-priest's name is Father Emmanuel Betasso (legally Patrick Anthony Betasso).  He admitted to doing so for a "cheap thrill".  He was 45 years old at the time and had just been named pastor of a parish - and was teaching a...

    WASHINGTON – A storm is gathering. The voices raising alarms about President Donald Trump’s temperament, steadiness and attitude toward the competing power centers of a democracy aren’t new; they date to his days as Candidate Trump. But the new authors of those arguments are making those concerns louder and more credible. The consequences ahead – the speed and direction of the storm – aren’t set, at least not yet. But the stakes are already pretty clear, and they could include Trump’s presidency. Consider just the past week. Last Saturday, two former presidents, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George W. Bush,...

    MOUNDSVILLE — Trump Administration officials are continuing to listen as West Virginia officials push for an expanded Interstate 68 from Morgantown through Marshall County. Marshall County Commissioner Robert Miller led a contingent to Washington, D.C., last week to meet with Brittany Carter, the White House assistant director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. Miller said the group discussed the I-68 project’s prospects of being included within Trump’s expected $200 billion infrastructure improvement plan, which should be presented to Congress by the end of this year. The I-68 project is expected to cost at least $1 billion. “$200 billion isn’t a...

    President Donald Trump sought to cast blame Friday for the cancellation of his planned military parade on Washington city council officials, saying they had inflated the cost. Soon after the President tweeted, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed she "got thru" to Trump about costs for the parade, which at one point was calculated to run about $12 million but more recent estimates said could run as high as $92 million by the time Trump canceled the event. "The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for...

    Donald Wuerl — the cardinal-archbishop of Washington, D.C. — must go. The kingpin of the American hierarchy — a man who over the decades has carefully and meticulously cultivated an image of reformer — has now been exposed as a fraud, just as guilty as scores of other bishops in the U.S. who hid and shuffled around homosexual predator priests and concelaed them from law enforcement officials. The long-awaited bombshell Pennsylvania Grand Jury report is out, released in dramatic fashion — live streamed by the attorney general's office — and Donald Wuerl has now been revealed as one of the major players in the...

    Trying to find love in D.C. can be tricky. If you’re a young Trump administration staffer, it might be near impossible. GOP employees and other right-wingers have been complaining that dating in one of the most Democratic cities in America is a political minefield. They’ve been called out, flipped off and told they are personally responsible for the death of democracy. One 29-year-old lobbyist told Fox News that learning to date in a Trump world is “absolutely insane.” “It’s getting so bad,” the lobbyist, who asked to remain anonymous because she works with the administration, said.

    A teenage T. rex about to chomp on the triceratops pinned under its foot will be the focal point of the redesigned Fossil Hall when it reopens June 8, 2019, at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Museum director Kirk Johnson announced the opening date of the David H. Koch Hall of Fossils on Tuesday morning, unveiling a piece of the 66 million-year-old fossil to mark the occasion. Named the Nation’s T. rex, the dinosaur was discovered in Montana in 1988 and is on loan from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is the first new dinosaur to...
  • Fight Against $15: Democrats Surprisingly Push To Repeal Minimum Wage Hike In Nation's Capital

    "Fight for $15" is the rallying cry for most Democrats these days. But soon after Washington, D.C., voters approved a hike in tipped wages to $15, Democrats on the city council moved to repeal it. That's what happens when ideology crashes into reality. On Tuesday, 7 of the 13 members of Washington's city council sponsored a bill to jettison the wage hike for tipped workers that 56% of D.C. voters had approved by a ballot initiative less than a month before. Under Initiative 77, the workers would see their minimum wage climb from the current $3.89 an hour to $15...

    If you live in D.C., you may have to boil your water. DC Water is advising tens of thousands of residents and businesses in a major portion of the city not to drink or cook with tap water without boiling it because of a contamination risk. A problem with the water system Thursday night made it "possible for contaminants to enter the water," DC Water said in a statement early Friday. Officials say there is no information indicating that any water was contaminated; the "boil water advisory" is a precaution. DC Water says it is safe to bathe or shower,...

    DC City Council Chairman Phil Mendelson announced Monday that he along with several other council members would introduce a bill during Tuesday's session to repeal Initiative 77, the city's newly-passed $15 an hour minimum wage. (Snip) "I don't believe the law that Initiative 77 would put into place is good for our city, good for our restaurant industry or good for our workers," Evans told a local ABC affiliate. Evans and others on the city council as well as Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser have long been critical of the initiative.
