President Trump and Republicans Are Planning Big Tax Cuts for the Rich and Corporations
(WASHINGTON) — The White House and congressional Republicans are finalizing a tax plan that would slash the corporate rate while likely reducing the levy for the wealthiest Americans, with President Donald Trump ready to roll out the policy proposal at midweek. The grand plan to rewrite the nation’s tax code would be the first major overhaul in three decades, delivering on a Trump campaign pledge and providing a sorely needed legislative achievement. It also is expected to eliminate or reduce some tax breaks and deductions. The plan would likely cut the tax rate for the wealthiest Americans, now at 39.6 percent...

Doctor Who Wanted to Raise ‘Sexual Families’ Faces More Child Sex Abuse Charges
Prosecutors last week announced new charges against a California neurosurgeon who wanted to impregnate women and raise “sexual families,” according to court documents. James Kohut, the 57-year-old surgeon, and two other defendants, Emily Stephens and Rashel Brandon, are accused of running a child-sex ring, according to the Associated Press.

Has This Happened Before? 6 Things to Know About the History Behind NFL Protests
With more than 200 NFL players choosing to sit or kneel while the national anthem played before football games over this past weekend — largely in response to President Trump’s continued criticism of athletes participating in such demonstrations — it’s worth remembering that this movement didn’t just begin last year with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel in order to make a statement about how the country is not practicing what it preaches. In fact, this week’s protests are simply the latest in a long history of athletes making public statements in the na...

Victoria and Abdul Author on the Movie ’s Unlikely Story: ‘It Sounds Like a Fantasy’
