Queen Elizabeth, royal family to be evacuated if Brexit unrest breaks out in London, reports say | Fox News

The Mail on Sunday also reported on the plans for the “worst case” scenarios to move the Royals to safe locations outside of London.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, a Conservative lawmaker and Brexiteer, told the Mail that the revival of the plan was a “wartime fantasy,” adding that as senior royals had remained in London during the bombings of World War II.

“The over-excited officials who have dreamt up this nonsense are clearly more students of fantasy than of history,” he told the Mail.

Elizabeth Warren Apologizes To Cherokee Nation For DNA Test : NPR

Elizabeth  Warren should just save the apology and work on the underling problem she has.  She’s an activist, not a politician that should be running for president.

“Senator Warren has reached out to us and has apologized to the tribe,” Hubbard said in a statement. “We are encouraged by this dialogue and understanding that being a Cherokee Nation tribal citizen is rooted in centuries of culture and laws not through DNA tests. We are encouraged by her action and hope that the slurs and mockery of tribal citizens and Indian history and heritage will now come to an end.”

Warren’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

These White House NDAs Are Crap—These People Work for Us, Not Trump

My take:

The Oval Office isn’t like Trump Tower, it’s not a corporate entity.  Those who work, even at the pleasure of a president, in the West Wing, are paid by taxpayers.  As even in these times, taxpayers still have a fundamental right to know where and how their money is spent.   No, we’re not talking about classified information, it’s just the opposite.  America actually does have a need to know the state of president.

Once the unconstitutional practice was out in the open, the White House filed an arbitration case against Manigault over breaching the NDA, which has little chance of winning even in a one-sided arbitration proceeding. To point out how pointless NDAs are, First Amendment lawyer Mark Zaid wrote on Twitter that NDAs are so unenforceable he would “represent pro bono any Trump official who was made to sign one.”

GE pays $1.5 billion to finally resolve subprime loan allegations – CNN

GE is finally moving past its decade-old subprime disaster. The company said it agreed in principle to pay a $1.5 billion civil penalty to settle the the Justice Department’s investigation into WMC Mortgage, the subprime lender that was shut down a decade ago.
Investors are probably relieved that GE doesn’t need to pay more than the $1.5 billion it previously set aside for WMC.
GE’s stock climbed 7% in premarket trading.
