Republicans face headwinds among Trump voters over corporate tax cuts

As Republicans craft the first major tax-code rewrite in more than 30 years, they’ll have to be wary of the voters who put their man in the White House.

While Trump voters generally believe tax cuts help the economy, a majority of them don’t support cuts for anyone but the middle class, according to a poll of voters’ priorities for Trump’s first 100 days conducted by POLITICO and Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Among the general public as a whole, slightly more than half favor tax cuts for low-income Americans, with middle-income cuts coming in a close second.

Stephen A. Smith To Black Community: Meeting With Trump Does Not Make You A Sellout, Respect The Office (Video)

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith delivers commentary on the black community attacking black leaders for meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Smith said calling people like Steve Harvey, who met with Trump last week, and Jim Brown and Ray Lewis, who met with Trump after he was elected, “sellouts” is not helpful.

Smith said it is not helpful to criticize black leaders for meeting with the one man who can make a difference when it comes to the abyss that is the inner-city. He called on other prominent black leaders to meet with Trump instead of bashing those who do.

How a liberal Santa Monica high school produced a top Trump advisor and speechwriter

too-cool-for-school upper-class students at Santa Monica High scoffed when administrators in 2002 reinstated a daily recitation of the pledge of allegiance.

Most students in the liberal enclave slouched in their chairs and chatted over the morning ritual, which was widely viewed as a throwback to an American patriotism that seemed outdated in the multicultural mash-up of L.A.’s Westside.

After a war on leaks, Obama makes a U-turn, commutes Chelsea Manning’s sentence

WASHINGTON —
With barely 72 hours left in office, President Barack Obama Tuesday did an abrupt U-turn on his years-long assault on government leaks and showed leniency toward two military figures who’d helped make public highly sensitive secrets.

Both Democrats and Republicans said they were bewildered – even angered – by Obama’s commutation of the 35-year prison term of Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence specialist who turned over some 700,000 classified and sensitive diplomatic documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

America just spent 8 years with a black president. For many African Americans, it meant one big thing: freedom to ‘dream’

Eight years ago, Andrew Jackson II saw himself on the cusp of possibility in a world of firsts.

He boarded a bus that January with dozens of family members and friends, headed to the National Mall to watch the nation’s first black president — the first person he had ever voted for — make history.

As he watched the jumbo screens show Barack Obama sworn in on that sub-freezing day, his body was swept with warmth.

“I can take a chance to breathe,” he remembers thinking. “Obama will put us on the right course.”

He was 27 and living on his own after graduating from Louisiana State University. By day, he worked at a flooring warehouse, but his spare time was spent auditioning for musicals in Houston’s burgeoning arts scene. He saw a future breaking his own barriers as a singer in Atlanta or an actor in Hollywood.

Michelle Obama is quietly planning her next act

As Michelle Obama prepares to leave the White House, she’s been talking publicly about how eager she is to return to normal life. “I want to open my front door without discussing it with anyone — and just walk,” she told Oprah Winfrey in an interview last year.

She has also said she wants to sit in a yard, stroll through a big-box store and open a window in her house, all things she has not been able to do for eight years.

Pompeo tells Kamala Harris he won’t discriminate against LGBT workers at the CIA

WASHINGTON —

Newly minted Sen. Kamala Harris of California used her time Thursday to question CIA nominee Mike Pompeo about his views on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees at the agency.

Pompeo, a three-term Republican congressman from Kansas, had opposed gay marriage and had sponsored bills to let states prevent same-sex couples from marrying and protect nonprofit organizations that opposed gay marriage.

But at his confirmation hearing in the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Pompeo assured Harris that he’d treat every CIA employee “in a way that is appropriate and equal” and not work to undermine the benefits same-sex married couples have gained.

“You have my full commitment on that,” he said.
