But as income tax filing season opens on Monday, a sweeping tax code overhaul and the lingering effects of a government shutdown could squeeze taxpayers’ refund checks and delay them, too. The monthlong government shutdown coincided with one of the Internal Revenue Service’s busiest times, and while 46,000 employees were called back to work without pay, many did not show up. Many taxpayers calling with questions faced delays of over an hour. While furloughed federal workers will return to their jobs on Monday, it will take time to get parts of the I.R.S. … [Read more...] about Your 2019 Tax Refund Might Be Higher, Lower or Later Than Usual
By Christopher Sell, Bloomberg News Published 7:00 am CST, Friday, January 4, 2019 Oil had a tumultuous 2018, with prices rising to a four-year high in October before plunging more than $30 in the following months. Oversupply and demand worries are high on the concern list for the industry, making volatility a buzzword this year as well. There are other power dynamics at play. OPEC’s Viennese waltz in early December was a perfect example of a shift, with Russia brokering a deal to curb output and sharing the reins with traditional leader Saudi Arabia. President Donald Trump’s tweets demanding lower oil prices and U.S. shale producers pumping out unprecedented volumes of crude threaten to undo all of OPEC and Russia’s yearslong work.

Greg Sargent, The Washington Post Published 7:43 am PDT, Friday, August 31, 2018 At his rally on Thursday night in Indiana, President Donald Trump unleashed his usual attacks on the news media, but he also added a refrain that should set off loud, clanging alarm bells. Trump didn't simply castigate "fake news"; he also suggested the media is allied with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe - an alliance, he claimed, that is conspiring not just against Trump but also against his supporters. "Today's Democrat Party is held hostage by left-wing haters, angry mobs, deep state radicals, establishment cronies, and their fake news allies," Trump railed. "Our biggest obstacle and their greatest ally actually is the media." In case there is any doubt about what Trump meant by the "deep state" that is supposedly allied with the news media, Trump also lashed out at the FBI and Justice Department, claiming that "people are angry," and threatening to personally "get involved." … [Read more...] about Trump’s latest rally rant is much more alarming and dangerous than usual
