President Donald Trump has proposed selling off more than half of the U.S. emergency oil stockpile, potentially putting more crude on the global market, even as OPEC works to prop up prices. A budget proposal released Tuesday includes a plan to sell 270 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve over the next decade, a move the White House says will trim the national debt by $16.6 billion. That's on top of a nearly 190 million-barrel drawdown planned from 2018 through 2025.
Imagine living in a nightmare that you can never wake up from. Imagine having to face every single day knowing that your son was murdered. Imagine you have no answers - that no one has been brought to justice and there are few clues leading to the killer or killers. Imagine that every single day, with every phone call you hope that it's the police, calling to tell you that there has been a break in the case.
The White House wants to cut the Interior Department budget by about 12 percent as the Trump administration shifts the agency's focus toward promoting fossil fuel drilling and extraction on public lands and in federal waters.
In February of 2013, I was expecting my first child. I hadn't told anyone at work. I worked in a newsroom, and while the other reporters were relatively young, few were working moms. Then we learned layoffs were coming. Layoffs and buyouts aren't uncommon in newsrooms, so I wasn't surprised. Even prestigious, well-known publications face periodic "restructuring." But this time was different. I was pregnant and had a lot more to lose.
American Special Operations forces conducted a new ground raid against al-Qaida's Yemen branch early on Tuesday, killing seven suspected militants, military officials said. The operation, led by a team of Navy SEALs and supported by an array of Special Operations forces, takes place as the Trump administration intensifies its counterterrorism operations in Yemen, where al-Qaida's most virulent offshoot is believed to be plotting attacks against the West.
Victor Sibson does not remember what happened the night he put a gun to his head, he told police. Shortly after 2 a.m. on April 19, the 21 year-old Anchorage man held a handgun to his left temple as he stood in the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, Brittany-Mae Haag. She attempted to grab the gun and stop him from taking his own life, prosecutors believe.
Tomi Lahren, the conservative commentator who claimed she was fired for publicly sharing her support of abortion rights, has landed a new job at a pro-Trump advocacy group. Great America Alliance, an offshoot of one of the largest pro-Trump super PACs, announced Monday that Lahren will be joining the organization in a communications role, helping to "expand grassroots support of the President's policies across the country."
MANCHESTER, England - I went to the Ariana Grande concert Monday expecting it to be one of the best nights of my life. I hadn't been to a concert since I saw Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz tour in the same arena back in 2014. Both my friend and I (I'm 17, he's 18) are huge fans of Ariana - or Arianators, as we're known - and we'd been looking forward to this since we bought tickets on pre-sale late last year.
