White House unveils Christmas decor with ‘Spirit of America’ theme

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, as the halls of the White House are officially decked out for the most wonderful time of the year.

On Dec. 1, First Lady Melania Trump announced that the White House had been decorated for the holiday season, with adornments inspired by “The Spirit of America,” this year’s patriotic theme.

“’The Spirit of America’ is shining in the White House! I am delighted to share this beautiful exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty of the #Christmas season!” FLOTUS tweeted on Sunday night, sharing a video of the festive furnishings.

In the minute-long clip, the first lady walked through the White House’s public floor alongside Christmas trees glowing with white lights, later sprinkling faux snow on a tree, adjusting roses on a fireplace and fixing a miniature wreath on the traditional gingerbread White House in the State Dining Room.

“This Christmas season I want to honor those who have shaped our country and made it the place we are proud to call home, and I am excited to announce our White House holiday theme, ‘The Spirit of America’ ” FLOTUS said in a statement released by the White House.

“When I travel the country, I am inspired by the hard-working people and families that I meet. No matter which state they call home, many Americans share a strong set of values and deep appreciation for the traditions and history of our great nation.”

According to the release, the first lady “personally selected every detail of the holiday season at the White House, making sure to capture the patriotic spirit we all share.”

“Thank you to all of the staff and volunteers who worked to make sure the People’s House was ready for Christmas. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,” she added.

Highlights of the decorations include the Gold Star Family Tree, which was “proudly decorated by Gold Star families” in the East Wing; a timeline of American design, innovation and architecture in the East Colonnade; and the First Family’s Christmas card and ornament in the East Garden Room — which both honor the American flag.

Brazil, Argentina Now On Receiving End Of Trump Tariffs

Westlake Legal Group facebook-default-wide Brazil, Argentina Now On Receiving End Of Trump Tariffs

President Trump is abruptly reimposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Brazil and Argentina.

Trump announced the move in a pair of tweets Monday, saying he was acting in response to “massive devaluation” of the two countries’ currencies. Brazil and Argentina had been exempted from Trump’s 25% tariff on imported steel and his 10% tariff on imported aluminum since May of last year.

Brazil is a major supplier of imported steel to the U.S. The declining value of currencies from Brazil and Argentina has given their exports an advantage in international markets, which Trump said is bad for U.S. farmers.

During the global trade war, China has cut back on purchases of U.S. farm goods such as soybeans and turned to South America for alternative supplies.

In his tweets, Trump also called on the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates further in hopes of weakening the dollar, which would give a lift to U.S. exports.

“Lower Rates & Loosen,” Trump wrote, arguing that a strong dollar “makes it very hard for our manufacturers & farmers to fairly export their goods.”

While interest rates do affect the value of the dollar, the Federal Reserve has not traditionally been guided by that. Instead, the central bank aims for stable prices and maximum employment, leaving currency policy to the Treasury Department.

Trump has repeatedly urged the Fed to cut interest rates. The central bank has cut rates three times since July, by a total of 0.75%. Fed officials are widely expected to leave rates unchanged when they meet next week.

Trump originally imposed the steel and aluminum tariffs in March of 2018, relying on authority from a seldom-used law from the 1960s, designed to protect domestic industries deemed vital to national defense.

The move did give a temporary lift to American steel and aluminum makers. However, it also raised prices for U.S. companies that use the metals. Since then, steel prices have fallen amid slumping demand. U.S. Steel announced layoffs this fall and posted a third-quarter loss of $35 million.

Rep. Collins rips Dems’ ‘sideshow’ impeachment hearings, says Lisa Page was part of ‘corrupt cabal’ at FBI

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-12-02-at-10.11.57-AM Rep. Collins rips Dems' 'sideshow' impeachment hearings, says Lisa Page was part of 'corrupt cabal' at FBI Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc b0deb274-ba6f-5b8c-b3d3-15dcf82ce1e3 article

Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., blasted House Democrats Monday for continuing to hold impeachment hearings against President Trump and went after former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who is speaking out in a new interview.

“Jerry Nadler is running a circus again and we’re prepared for it on Wednesday,” Collins told “Fox & Friends” Monday, calling the House Judiciary Committee hearings another “sideshow” by Democrats.

HOUSE JUDICIARY DEM ADMITS EVEN HE HAS NO CLUE WHO NADLER’S WITNESSES ARE, AS TRUMP FACES DEADLINE

Just days before the House Judiciary Committee is set to call witnesses to testify at a hearing regarding the possible impeachment of President Trump, their identities are being kept hidden not just from the White House, but even members of the committee itself.

“We’re going to have an academic hearing on Wednesday, which, by the way, gang, we don’t even know who their witnesses are yet, said Collins, the ranking Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee. “We don’t even know how to prepare. We’ve asked for fairness. We’ve not got an answer back on that.”

Committee Chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., gave the White House until Sunday evening to decide if they would like to participate in Wednesday’s hearing and gave Trump until Friday regarding a defense at future hearings. (The White House announced Sunday night that Trump and his lawyers would not participate in the House Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing.)

Still, even Nadler’s fellow New York Democrat and committee member Rep. Hakeem Jeffries admitted Sunday that he still did not know who will be testifying. All that is known so far is that there will be four witnesses, they will be constitutional law experts, and that three will be chosen by the Democratic majority and one by the Republican minority.

COLLINS: SCHIFF WILL BE GOP’S ‘FIRST AND FOREMOST WITNESS’ FOR IMPEACHMENT HEARING

Meanwhile, in an interview published late Sunday, Page, the ex-FBI lawyer who carried on an extramarital affair with former FBI head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok, said it was not “fathomable” that she broke the law.

Page and Strzok exchanged a series of anti-Trump text messages that fueled suspicion that there was a conspiracy within the FBI and intelligence community against the Trump presidency. In an interview with The Daily Beast, she said Trump’s comments at a rally in October that mocked her and Strzok over the affair were “the straw that broke the camel’s back,” and she decided she had to speak out.

Collins said Page and Strzok were part of a “corrupt cabal” within the Justice Department that was seeking to “undermine” Trump.

“It’s amazing now how all these folks have now started coming out. As the Horowitz report gets closer, as Mr. Durham continues his investigation, how they’re now trying to paint themselves as just concerned patriots,” he said, referring to two investigations into potential misconduct by the FBI in starting the 2016 Trump-Russia probe.

Chevrolet loses money selling cheap Corvettes, report says

If the mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray’s $59,995 price seems like good deal, that’s because it is.

But maybe not for Chevrolet. Motor Trend reports that Chevy will take a loss on every Stingray sold for under $79,995, which is enough to get you a well-optioned 3LT trim level coupe equipped with a Z51 performance package.

Westlake Legal Group stingray Chevrolet loses money selling cheap Corvettes, report says Gary Gastelu fox-news/auto/make/chevrolet fox-news/auto/attributes/performance fox news fnc/auto fnc article 82ca7972-7f52-5c93-bf40-5fdb58a83696

This Corvette Stingray 3LT Z51 has a list price of $76,945. (Chevrolet)

However, if you check all the boxes on the options list to add things like a computer-controlled suspension, upgraded wheels and a set of leather travel bags, it’s possible to get the price of a Stingray coupe at just over $103,000. And that’s before the inevitable high-performance Z06 and ZR1 models arrive, the latter of which will reportedly be a 900 hp all-wheel-drive hybrid that will likely eclipse the old ZR1’s price of $120,900.

If you’re more interested in one of the cheap ones, you should act fast. The “senior GM source” that dished on the Stingray’s discount to Motor Trend said that the base price will be raised for 2021.

Chevrolet probably isn’t too worried about meeting its high-end quota, as the entry-level front-engine Stingray coupe accounted for just one-third of last year’s sales when the full lineup of models was available.

Chrissy Teigen Is Totally Unfazed By Troll Calling Out Her ‘Chefs And Nannies’

Westlake Legal Group 5de51f451f0000201edf0230 Chrissy Teigen Is Totally Unfazed By Troll Calling Out Her ‘Chefs And Nannies’

When engaging on social media with Chrissy Teigen, queen of quick wit and comebacks, it’s important to bring your A-game ― otherwise you’ll get destroyed. 

One troll in particular decided to come for the “Cravings” cookbook author and model on Friday, right after she made a holiday post on Instagram thanking her household staff. 

“Grateful for people that make our dysfunctional house functional ❤️” Teigen wrote in the caption of a photo of three employees, who were hugging her children, Luna and Miles. 

One person, in an attempt to put Teigen on the spot, responded: “Thankful for my household staff of chefs and nannies.”

Teigen, as usual, remained unflappable. 

“Literally just said that but you sure got me,” she replied. 

Teigen has been pretty forthright about the army of domestic workers she and her husband, John Legend, employ to keep their home running and kids happy. 

“I hate pretending that we do it on our own,” she said in an October interview with Vanity Fair. “We have daytime help, nighttime, weekend. I don’t know how my mom did it.” 

Teigen, who celebrated her 34th birthday on Nov. 30, also has her mom living with the family.  

Despite her household staff, Teigen has plenty of “real mom shit,” which she shares with followers online.  

“Every morning when I look at myself in the mirror, I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, how did it get here? My baby was, like, four pounds and I gained, like, 60 pounds, and that seems off!’” Teigen said in a candid conversation with Good Housekeeping earlier this year. 

“But, you know, I think everyone’s body is just really different,” she added. “That’s why, my posts of real mom shit, and wearing the diaper, and having that mesh thing, and real postpartum business? I think as important as it is for people to see me do that, it’s also really important for me.”

Former NHL player Sean Avery accuses ex-Kings coach of kicking him on bench

Former NHL winger Sean Avery accused former Los Angeles Kings coach Marc Crawford of kicking him during a 2006 game against the Nashville Predators.

Avery made the revelation to the New York Post on Saturday. The revelation came after the Calgary Flames coach Bill Peters resigned over accusations he kicked a player and used racial slurs against another player during his coaching career.

BILL PETERS RESIGNS AS CALGARY FLAMES COACH AFTER BEING ACCUSED OF RACIAL SLURS

“He kicked me after a too-many-men-on-the-ice call I took,” Avery said of Crawford. “He didn’t have me serve it, we got scored on, and he let me have it.”

The game was played on Dec. 23, 2006 between the Kings and Predators. Los Angeles was handed the penalty in the second period and Nashville scored a goal on the power play as part of their 7-0 win. After the goal, Avery said he was accosted by Crawford at the end of the bench.

“You know how I stand at the end of the bench? He came down and gave me an a*s kick that left a mark,” he said.

Crawford is now an assistant with the Chicago Blackhawks. The team declined to comment on the allegation, according to USA Today.

Avery said he found the incident more “bemusing” than anything.

Olivia Jade’s return to YouTube met with mixed reactions on social media: ‘You should have stayed gone’

Olivia Jade, the daughter of embattled actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, returned to YouTube to a slew of mixed reactions after being swept up in the college admissions scandal earlier this year.

On Sunday, the social media influencer, 20, posted her first video to YouTube since news broke that her parents were accused of arranging a total collective payment of $500,000 to William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters recruited to USC as athletes on the crew team, despite never having participated in the sport.

Fans and critics alike took to Twitter shortly after the video went live to share their thoughts on the embattled influencer’s return to online celebrity. A majority of those who commented on her tweet about the video were simply thrilled to have her back in their newsfeeds after going on an extended break eight months ago.

LORI LOUGHLIN, MOSSIMO GIANNULLI HAD ‘LOW KEY’ 22ND ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AMID COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

“i still love you. conflicted still but i feel like you’ll have a good explanation for what happened once ur legally allowed to talk about it,” one user wrote.

“Liv you deserve to have a life, you’re a great youtuber and we’ve really missed you!,” another user noted.

“i love u. ur strong. despite what all happened, as long as you’ve learned and grown from it that’s all that matters. we’re here for you and i’m happy ur back,” a third user commented.

“We’ve missed you Olivia We love you, we the silent are always here for you so never stop being free,” someone else wrote.

However, despite her eager fans being happy with her return to regular vlogging, there were several people that were not ready to forgive the 20-year-old for her alleged part in the scandal.

LORI LOUGHLIN PARTAKING IN ‘GRUELING’ MOCK TRIALS AHEAD OF COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL COURT APPEARANCE: REPORT

“You’ve become an icon for corruption and elitism. Hopefully the public disdain for you, will lead to more purposeful content on your part,” one critic noted on her video post.

“The people who are glad that you’re back are the people who don’t have to worry about college tuition, room and board, books, etc. ignorant,” a more upset user wrote.

“So we’re just going to forgive Olivia Jade & act like nothing happened ? Her & her family are only ‘remorseful’ because they got caught!!” a third user tweeted.

“You should have stayed gone,” a blunt user stated.

“I’m actually disgusted by the amount of people really gassing up Olivia Jade. Like WTF?” someone wrote.

“whys everyone commenting on olivia jade’s video saying ‘we all make mistakes’??? hate when i accidentally give $500,000 for my kids to get into college,” a sarcastic user noted.

Olivia Jade noted in the video that she’s legally barred from discussing the college admissions scandal as well as her and her parent’s involvement.

Loughlin and her fashion designer husband pleaded not guilty to expanded charges in the college admissions scandal after being counted among 11 parents additionally accused of bribery.

The Justice Department announced in October that the duo, along with nine other parents, were indicted on additional federal charges related to bribery. A grand jury in Boston indicted the parents on charges of trying to bribe officials at an organization that receives at least $10,000 in federal funding.

Palmerston, British Foreign Office’s resident cat, returns after 6-month recovery for weight gain, stress

This is one government fat cat the public is happy to see back at work.

Palmerston, the beloved feline residing in the United Kingdom’s Foreign Office, has returned after a six-month hiatus used to recover from stress after he was, apparently, overloved by government employees who fed him too many treats.

“I am happy to announce that I will be returning to my Chief Mouser duties at the @foreignoffice this week!” read a tweet from Palmerston’s personal Twitter account Monday that also announced the introduction of the “Palmerston Protocols” that will be used to ensure the cat remains in good health.

Per the “Protocols,” only the cat’s caretaker will be allowed to feed him food or treats, and “everyone should respect my personal space and allow me to lead interactions.”

Palmerston will be kept in “Palmerston HQ,” or the “Palmerston Zone,” a smaller area of the building that houses British diplomat Sir Simon McDonald’s office, that will be designated for the cat to hang out, as the “FCO is a very big, old building and I was finding it difficult to maintain a territory so large.”

The purring public servant had been removed from the Foreign Office in July and taken in by McDonald’s private secretary to recover from stress, The Telegraph reported. The “Chief Mouser” was overweight and suffered from significant anxiety, manifesting in Palmerston having “groomed all of the hair off his front legs.”

McDonald, who is in charge of Palmerston, on Monday issued a memo to staff warning them to take better care of Palmerston — or else he’d be retired from the Foreign Office for good.

“He is happy, healthy and full of energy,” the letter read, per The Telegraph. “His pelt is glossy and mostly grown back (over-grooming is, I’m told, a similar habit to human’s nail-biting; the habit can take a while to kick). His diet is regulated and free of Dreamies. We need now to keep him that way!”

Palmerston reportedly has not yet commented about his return.
