Over two months after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, the island's government still hasn't received any of the $4.9 billion of short-term loans promised in the storm aid package Congress passed at the end of October. Puerto Rico's government has requested $94 billion in federal aid, only a portion of which has been granted. Members of Congress have raised concerns over how the island's government will steward billions in federal money. In what appeared to be an attempt to reassure Washington, Governor Ricardo Rossello said last month that he was giving Federal Emergency Management Agency unprecedented power to pre-approve relief spending. read more

Wells Fargo bankers chasing bonuses charged hundreds of clients inflated foreign transaction fees, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. The report comes just over a year since Wells Fargo paid a $185 million fine for "widespread illegal" sales practices involving fees on 2 million deposit and credit-card accounts opened without customers' knowledge. An internal Wells Fargo review in the latest breach showed that only 35 business clients out of about 300 were charged the actual price they had been quoted by Wells Fargo bankers for their currency trades, two employees told The Journal. They heard the conclusions of the bank investigation in a conference call in June, the paper said. Sources told the newspaper that four foreign-exchange bankers have been fired and federal investigators have opened their own inquiry. read more

The fight for control of the U.S. consumer watchdog agency intensified on Monday as Mick Mulvaney, President Donald Trump's pick to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), imposed a hiring freeze and halted any new regulations. read more

Shocking news in last week's Sun-Sentinel:

Almost three months into the school year, thousands of public school students in South Florida still don't have a permanent teacher -- a problem expected to get worse as more educators flee the classroom and the number of those seeking teaching degrees plummets.
Okay, not shocking. Utterly predictable, given Florida's unending efforts to create the worst atmosphere for public education in the country. read more

On Monday night, the Atlantic's Julia Ioffe reported that Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of the President and a senior adviser to his campaign, had exchanged direct messages on Twitter with WikiLeaks during the course of the 2016 race.
So what does this new reporting prove? It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was direct communication between WikiLeaks and a senior member of Donald Trump's political inner circle. read more

Uh huh...suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure. Someone with a very juicy story about a Republican President went to Fox News to reveal it but never went to any other outlets, and then wants to complain that it didn't get published. Uh huh. Yeah, maybe dumb people will believe it but I truly hope that is only a few of you.
At some point, will CNN ever give created to the general population and think that maybe we aren't as dumb as they think we are? I know many Liberals cling to CNN as if everything they say is absolute truth and some Cons will just not believe any word of what they report even if they say we need oxygen to live...but for the majority of the readers who can think on their own, CNN really needs to start catering to them one day like every other news outlet. The Washington Post and Fox News cater mostly to the ones who can think, they just have two opposing demographics they appeal to (even though the opposing sides will always show their ignorance by trying to discredit them about everything they can). CNN just puts out long pieces of crap that when someone actually sits and thinks about what has been written, they realize how stupid CNN actually thinks its readers are. If you are a regular reader of CNN, you have problems and should go to a psychiatrist...or go work for Onion who would love to have you.

Is it difficult getting through life without a fully functional brain?

It's doubtful someone just came to Fox with this story as much as it was uncovered and multiple sources confirmed it.

Fox had it. That's a fact.

Fox didn't run the story. That's a fact.

Fox News doesn't cater to people who can think. It's why their viewers have been proven to be less knowledgeable of politics and the world than even people who watch no news.

You can lie all you want. But the rest of us just think you are sad.
