    A Washington state father was arrested for allegedly attempting to hire someone to kill his wife and daughter. Jeffery Lytle, 42, allegedly intended to send a text message to a hitman named “Shayne” for help in killing his wife and daughter, but instead texted his former boss, KIRO reported. “Hey Shayne hows it going. You remember you said that you would help me kill my wife. I’m going to take you up on that offer,” the Monroe resident allegedly wrote the person. Lytle promised to share his wife and daughter’s $1.5 million life insurance policy with Shayne, according to court...

    Just so you know, I voted for Hillary (Clinton). But when you think about it’s only been two weeks right? Or even less (someone interrupts to say it’s been 10 days). We’ve got to attack this issue here. So basically, I think that when you think about all the negativity that’s happened within a 10-day period, however many days it’s been, it’s already too much. It’s already crazy. It’s already affecting people’s hearts and souls and lives in such a negative way, in my opinion. Coupling that insightful analysis with the political prognostication for which he is absolutely not known,...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that Donald Trump’s plan to crack down on sanctuary cities will actually make those cities “less safe,” both for citizens and immigrants. “It’s going to make cities less safe,” de Blasio stated. “We’ve spent decades building relationships with communities, including immigrant communities, and this is the type of thing that will destroy that progress and make it impossible for police officers to keep the cities safe.” “New York city has half a million undocumented people,” he continued. “We want them to come forward and work with police if they...

    The 300,000 pennies the Cedar Bluff, Virginia man took to the DMV Wednesday morning to pay sales tax on two new cars weighed in at 1,600 pounds. A mature Holstein cow weighs about 1,500 pounds. See, Stafford had a bone to pick with the DMV. It wasn’t about agonizingly long lines or a bad picture on his driver’s license: It came down to 10 phone numbers. And Stafford ended up filing three lawsuits and spending at least $1,005 to give the DMV his 2 cents. One might feel bad for the Lebanon DMV employees, who chose to count the coins...

    The Gold Star father of Capt. Humayun Khan, who blasted President-elect Donald J. Trump at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, told Breitbart News that he has “no animosity” towards Trump, though he still opposes Trump’s policies. “I really have no animosity towards him, but towards his policies? Yes,” said Khizr Khan, a attorney and supporter of Hillary R. Clinton in the last presidential election. “If he says: ‘We must reconcile.

Here's a transcript: "The truth is that trends on the ground, violence, terrorism, settlement expansion and the seemingly endless occupation, they are combining to destroy hopes for peace on both sides and increasingly cementing any reversible -- an irreversible one state reality that most people do not actually want. Today, there are a similar number of Jews and Palestinians living between the Jordan river and the Mediterranean Sea. They have a choice. They can choose to live together in one...

    “If anyone does do it, I hope that the check that they get is in the nine figures. Because it’s probably the last check they’re ever going to get,” Simon Renshaw tells TheWrap The Dixie Chicks’ manager says the title of one of their songs sums up why Donald Trump’s inauguration team can’t book A-list talent: Hollywood isn’t ready to make nice with the president-elect. Trump’s inaugural committee is still struggling to lock in A-list talent for his big festivities, according to Hollywood insiders, and even offering ambassadorships to anyone who can wrangle top singers. “If anyone does do it,...

The first lady said it was important "for the health of this nation" that she and her husband, President Barack Obama, support President-elect Donald Trump, even though she said some political leaders didn't support her husband's presidency. "So we're going to be there for the next president and do whatever we have to do to make sure that he is successful, because if he succeeds, we all...

    Mitt Romney appears to have no hard feelings for being passed over as Trump’s secretary of state. Even though ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson was chosen for the position in the end, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee says that his candidacy alone proves Trump is willing to listen to alternative viewpoints. He expressed his thoughts in a short letter to the editor via The Salt Lake Tribune on Saturday: My political journey was surely not so bizarre as the 2016 campaign. That said, let me offer this personal perspective. I was indeed very critical of Donald Trump during his campaign. But...

    Van Jones, a CNN commentator and former adviser to President Obama, on Monday compared the pipeline protest in Cannon Ball, North Dakota to the civil rights movement of the 1960s: "This feels like Selma! It feels like Montgomery! It feels like a time when a group that nobody paid attention to, black folks in the South, stood up and the world stood with them, so it's a very powerful, emotional moment, I think, for the tribal communities," Jones told CNN's "New Day."

    On "The View," Van Jones actually compared President-elect Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, to someone who tries to castrate men. Jones said that, if Hillary Clinton had been elected and had nominated an ultra-radical feminist (who literally wants to cut men's genitals off), it would have been the same thing as Donald Trump bringing Bannon into his administration. And the women on the show all laughed...
