Kellyanne Conway, a senior counselor to the president, said on Sunday that Trump will break a 40-year tradition and not show America the extent of his financial interests and obligation.
"The White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns," Conway said. "We litigated this all through the election."
Conway went on to assert that most Americans don't care about Trump's tax returns, noting, "They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: most Americans are — are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like."

It's difficult to fathom such a thing because conservatives aren't prone to violence at their rallies. But anti-Trump protesters certainly are. So when do you think the media coverage of the following incident will begin?
In a relatively peaceful atmosphere involving dueling groups - a group of Trump supporters, and a group of Trump haters - members of both sides debated the merits of their views.
Then, an anti-Trump protester who moments earlier had been chanting "love Trumps hate" decided to set a woman's hair on fire while she was showing off her Trump hat.
No seriously, they literally set her hair on fire.
Via Gateway Pundit:
The video shows two white female and two male Trump supporters engaging in peaceful debate with a group of anti-Trump protesters. The two female Trump supporters, one with her hair in braids, take turns posing for photographs in front of the protesters. The second woman to pose has long hair hanging freely down her back. Someone within the anti-Trump mob reaches out and sets the Trump supporter's hair on fire. Fortunately one of the male Trump supporters standing with them sees the female's hair on fire and quickly puts it out with his bare hand. A puff of smoke can be seen rising from the female Trump supporter's back.Watch the video below - there is no doubt the act was done intentionally and maliciously ...
[The video was posted to the YouTube account of Daniel and Geneva Ledon. The Ledons added commentary and enhanced viewing for some parts of the video.]

Leave it to Ron Paul (and more so the post author Jeff Deist) to hold up a mirror to the liberal left, and their never ending crying over Trump's victory, and now Presidency.
The liberal left religion is not fond of self examination. We doubt they will listen to Ron Paul or Jeff Deist. We may even see the liberal left establishment begin branding the two men "Kremlin stooges"...
"It has become very apparent that the left views Trump's election as an absolute calamity. But it is a calamity that they brought upon themselves.
The left remained silent while the Obama administration spent two full terms at war. They excused Obama's NSA scandals. They cheered the growth of an imperial presidency and an activist judiciary.
But worst of all, the left poisoned America with vicious identity politics and a deeply false narrative of racism, sexism, xenophobia, and privilege. How could a backlash not occur?
What matters most in the upcoming years is not what Trump can actually do in the face of this hatred. What matters is what he can undo."
Tokyo park employee who failed to collect admission fees after tourist 'trauma', offers to return half his retirement fund
Mon, 23 Jan 2017 12:29 UTC
The former admission officer, 71, failed to collect the 200 yen ($1.76) entrance fee for Tokyo's Shinjuku Gyoen park, famed for its stunning springtime cherry blossoms, from foreigners between 2014 and 2016. The lost revenue amounts to a total of 32,000,000 yen ($282,000).
The man said he stopped asking foreign nationals for payments after he was once "shouted at" by a foreigner because he didn't speak good English and afterwards felt too intimidated to speak to non-Japanese visitors, Shankei Shimbun reports.

A Baltimore City mom is looking for answers: Why did the school allow serious dental work — without making a single phone call to parents?
9-year-old Michael is still brought to tears by the pain. He's now missing three teeth — pulled out by a dental program visiting his school. His mother, Shanda Flemming, tells WJZ she never was notified that the procedure was happening.
"And then two on this side. One top and one bottom," says Flemming.
Baltimore City Schools says Flemming signed a permission slip, but Flemming thought it was for routine cleanings.

Organizers say that more that 2.5 million people took part in demonstrations around the world on Saturday, as protesters voiced opposition to President Donald Trump while also calling for the protection of civil liberties.
The largest of the events was held in Washington, DC where over half a million people took to the streets, according to AP. Many, if not most, of the protesters came equipped with placards criticising Trump and highlighting their various causes.
Following the march, tens of thousands thousands chose to leave their signs outside various DC landmarks including the White House and the Trump International Hotel.
Comment: Their own feelings are paramount, apparently. How incredibly inconsiderate.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. The office said most of those arrested will be released without having to post bail and must return to court in February.
A first group of 10 men appeared in Superior Court just before 3 p.m., and their lawyer entered a not guilty plea on their behalf. A judge released all of them on the condition they not get re-arrested in the District of Columbia.
Interim D.C. police chief Peter Newsham said Friday that 217 people were being charged with rioting.
Russophobic re-writing of history: California legislator proposes schools teach that Russia influenced the 2016 election in favor of Trump
Mon, 23 Jan 2017 15:38 UTC
A California legislator is introducing a bill that would require state schools to teach in history class that Russian government conspired to influence the 2016 US election on behalf of Donald Trump. More:
Levine said if California requires state curriculum to include the information, other states would likely follow suit.
"California is the largest textbook market in the nation," he said. "Textbooks approved in our state are used throughout the country."
Comment: One more lie to add to the already heaping pile taught in history classes nationwide.

The tongue-in-cheek offer was posted on the Sparta Police Department's Facebook page after "an investigation" led to the discovery of fake meth among batches of the drug sold to unsuspecting users.
"We understand how frustrating it is buying something and finding out it's not what you thought you purchased...like ordering a large T-shirt that turns out to be a size schmedium," police wrote.
The police department implored anyone with concerns that their meth may in fact be mere rock salt to come to the station for testing. They also extended this service to meth pipes, needles, and other drug paraphernalia.
"We can only imagine how horrible a salty meth pipe is," the post read, while urging drug users to call in without delay.
