Dr. Fauci and Biden advocate a mask mandate, as U.S. COVID-19 infections exceed 83,000, hitting new daily record

Dr. Anthony Fauci wants all Americans to wear a mask and — contrary to previous statements he’s made on the issue — he now favors a mask mandate in order to make that happen. Fauci, a physician and immunologist, and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for the last three decades, told Erin Burnett on CNN’s OutFront Friday evening: “If people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating."“There’s going to be a difficulty enforcing it, but if everyone agrees that this is something that’s important, and they mandate it and everybody pulls together...

Can Trump write off $70K in haircuts? The IRS allows tax deductions for an array of highly unusual expenses

Can Trump write off $70K in haircuts? The IRS allows tax deductions for an array of highly unusual expenses

The Internal Revenue Service is not as punitive on tax write-offs as some people might think. President Donald Trump paid just $750 in federal taxes in both 2016 and 2017, and no federal income tax in 10 of the previous 15 years due to massive business losses, .The paper said it had acquired more than two decades’ worth of tax-return data from Trump and his business organization, though it does not include his personal tax returns for 2018 and 2019. Among the investigation’s revelations: Trump took tax deductions on expenses “including residences, aircraft and $70,000 in hairstyling for...

Other times, it’s with the rage of angels.About four months ago, Terence Fitzgerald, and his two sons, who are 5 and 3 years old, were on a weekend bike ride in his neighborhood, a quiet suburb in Southern California with picturesque houses situated amid generous lawns.“My oldest loves nature and stopped all of a sudden,” Fitzgerald said. “It forced us all to hit the brakes because he was leading us on our little adventure. He saw a cardinal and wanted to show me. The bird sat on a branch on the edge of someone’s property.”It was one of those occasions...
