      WASHINGTON — Good news for the incoming House Democratic majority! They have something President Trump really, really wants: money to build a border wall. Trump is desperate for this money. Mexico won’t give it to him. Only congressional Democrats can. Without their consent, he can’t deliver…

        WASHINGTON — Anthony Scaramucci’s rollout as Donald Trump’s new communications director received mainly good reviews.

            The U.S. abortion debate is shifting to funding as states take control of policymaking. Liberal cities and states are funding efforts to provide access to abortion, while Republican-led states are seeking new ways to financially support anti-abortion centers.

            Police in Oregon have arrested a Canadian man who allegedly stole a yacht and had to be rescued by a Coast Guard swimmer. He's wanted in what authorities call a series of “odd” events that involved him leaving a dead fish at the home in the film “The Goonies.” Police on Friday identified the man as 35-year-old Jericho Labonte of Victoria, British Columbia. Police say he was treated at a hospital but released Friday before authorities realized he was wanted in the dead fish incident. Police in Seaside, Oregon, found him at a homeless shelter Friday night and arrested him.
