Besides, I need the money from healthcare to pay for the tax cuts that the wealthy need to make my minions feel good about themselves once it trickles down to them in Happy Meal amounts in about seven years. So just sign the damned thing. Anything with "Obama" attached to it has gotta go, gotta go. Bigly. Believe me. Conthief.

Therapist Kimberly Hershenson told INSIDER what she feels long-lasting relationships have in common.
It’s hard to know what special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation is doing, but it’s clear that it’s going quickly. “We don’t want it to be spread out,” says Solomon Wisenberg, who was second-in-command in the Whitewater/Lewinsky investigation into President Bill Clinton. It initially began as a look into Clinton’s financial dealings with the Whitewater property company, but ended up exposing sordid details of an affair between the president and a White House intern.
FBN’s Charlie Gasparino explains why special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia meddling may be stalling, after groundbreaking reports this week that the Department of Justice had approved a wiretap for Paul Manafort.
The skirmish began earlier this week, when Pakistan’s prime minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, attacked India in his speech at the UN general assembly (UNGA). India fired back immediately, describing its western neighbor as “terroristan.” But the real rebuke came—as it had to—from India’s foreign minister, Sushma Swaraj, during her speech at the UNGA on Saturday (Sept. 23). Walking onto the podium after a grueling week of diplomacy, Swaraj did not mince words. Speaking in Hindi, she began by listing out some of the Narendra Modi government’s developmental programs, including Jan Dhan, perhaps the world’s largest financial inclusion scheme, which has brought 300 million people into the banking network.
Ivanka Trump defended her stepmother in an interview with Dr. Oz that aired Thursday evening. “I think Melania is an elegant, confident, poised woman, and I think talking about her fashion choices objectifies her, and it’s just inappropriate,” the first daughter said. The previous day, Melania Trump’s fashion choices were the subject of intense social media scrutiny after a speech denouncing bullying at the United Nations luncheon, with users likening her dress to a “pink hot air balloon” and pointing to its $3,000 price tag.
President Donald Trump has three suggestions to fix the NFL: stop disciplining players for hard hits, boycott games when players kneel during the national anthem, and then fire those players. Trump offered the advice during a rally in Huntsville, Ala., Friday night, a day after researchers from Boston University revealed that former New England Patriots tight end and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez had a severe case of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease linked with violent and erratic behavior found in more than 100 former NFL players. The President then turned his attention to the act of kneeling during the national anthem, a form of protest several NFL players have taken since former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did last year to protest the treatment of black people by police.

While crude oil bottomed out early last year below $30 a barrel and is now in the low $50s, the market isn't in recovery mode just yet. As a result, investors still have the chance to buy oil stocks at rock-bottom prices in hopes of scoring big gains when the cycle finally turns higher. While that rising tide should lift the entire industry, we think ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), and Encana (NYSE:ECA) offer some of the most compelling opportunities for upside. That's because all three can thrive at current prices, which makes them all the more likely to produce top-tier returns when crude turns higher. Still trading at a historic discount Tyler Crowe (ExxonMobil): Wall Street
By Dave Gregorio NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices ended nearly 1 percent higher on Friday, close to their highest levels in months, as major producers meeting in Vienna said they may wait until January before deciding whether to extend output curbs beyond the first quarter. "I believe that January is the earliest date when we can actually, credibly speak about the state of the market," Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said after the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major producers finished meeting. Other ministers said a decision on extending cuts could be taken in November when OPEC holds its next formal meeting.
