China and the US ramped up talks on steel amid threats from President Donald Trump to impose new curbs on imports of the metal in the name of US national security. The intensified deliberations are part of the "Comprehensive Economic Dialogue" between Mr Trump's team and their Chinese counterparts in Washington, which began this week.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was embraced by young voters when he ran for president in 2016. And now it's Rep. Maxine Waters (R-CA) - at 78, she is three years older than Sanders - who says she would run for president "if Millennials want me to."
The Democrats have a new slogan and economic agenda: "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages."
President Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, will no longer lead the legal team responding to the ongoing Russian investigations and has taken a reduced role, according to reports.
Hoping to fend off a legal challenge to a program that has spared nearly 800,000 young immigrants from deportation, two veteran senators made a long-shot appeal to President Trump on Thursday to support legislation that would put those immigrants and thousands of others on a path to U.S. citizenship.
Since the passage of "Gunpocalypse" (June 30, 2016), and Proposition 63 (November 8, 2016), California Democrats have learned that gun control is easy to pass but difficult to implement.

Last week's stunning move by Congressmen Randy Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) and Peter Aguilar (D-AZ) to sneak into the FY18 Financial Services and General Government spending bill a provision allowing DACA-amnesty recipients to qualify for federal employment no doubt has even a lot of amnesty-supporters scratching their heads. Not only is most federal employment out of bounds even for legal immigrants, those joining public service are expected to clear a full background check, have a clean record, and swear an oath to the Constitution; all things illegal-alien beneficiaries of the former president's unlawful DACA program clearly should have trouble with.
The great outdoors is an apt description - the U.S. alone has 2.3 billion acres of land, with only about 5 percent of that land considered developed.

The wars between Trump, the media, the deep state, and the progressive party - replete with charges and counter-charges of scandal, collusion, and corruption - are merely symptoms of a much larger fundamental and growing divide between Americans that is reaching a dangerous climax. On four prior occasions in American history the country nearly split apart, as seemingly irreconcilable cultural, economic, political, social, geographical, and demographic fault lines opened a path to hatred and violence.
The Washington elite excuses every failure to drain the swamp by claiming that no significant legislation can be passed without the support of sixty senators, something made impossible by partisan rancor. Respecting this sixty-vote threshold is supposedly essential to respecting a "228-year-long tradition" in the Senate, an element of our Constitutional system of checks and balances.
