The SP 500 and Nasdaq were also just marginally higher. Stocks initially soared after Trump’s surprise win in November on hopes for big tax cuts for companies and individuals and a fresh round of stimulus spending. Industries likely to see significant regulatory relief under Trump, notably the banking and energy sectors, fared especially well. The dollar also initially soared following Trump’s win. But those gains have slowed in recent days with the Dow staying stubbornly below the psychologically important 20,000 level. The dollar was little changed following the speech. Trump recently broke with longstanding tradition in which presidents decline to comment on the currency and said the dollar had gotten too strong. The Mexican peso, which plunged on Trump’s election over fears of new tariffs on Mexican goods, rose around 1.3 percent by midday Friday.

Braggart and bigot now in control of the world’s most powerful military and economy. Fear and malevolence won Even the heavens wept. As Donald Trump stepped forward to become America’s 45th president the cold shower that broke over Washington offered no end of metaphors. His address , however, was literal to a fault. There was no higher calling, no sense of a greater purpose, no florid imagery or impassioned idealism. This was as crude and unapologetic an appeal to nationalism as one might expect from a man incapable of rising to an occasion without first refracting it through his ego. It is said that presidents campaign in poetry and govern in prose. Trump campaigned in graffiti – the profane scrawls of a mindless vandal – and, if his inaugural address was anything to go by, may yet govern in tweets – the impulsive, abbreviated interventions of a narcissist.

The wheels of the transfer window are really starting to churn into motion now with further news of departures from Leicester City. Reports broke overnight that Luis Hernandez is in Spain and has passed a medical ahead of a 2million move to Malaga. Where on earth does that leave Claudio Ranieri's defence now with just 36-year-old Marcin Wasilewski as the only recognised centre-back?

President Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, and delivered his inauguration address to the nation, which he apparently wrote himself . Well, except for one line, which he straight up copied from the Batman villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises . Timothy Burke for Deadspin noticed the striking resemblance and mashed together this quick video to show the shared line. And as Jezebel points out , Trump speech and Bane's share a striking resemblance. Here's the section from Trump's speech: And Bane's: Bane, of course, broke Batman over his knee and crippled Gotham under authoritarianism, but that's neither here nor there. Read more...

By Darius Shahtahmasebi You wouldnt know it from following most of the corporate media online or on your television set, but ISIS is currently making significant headway in Syria. According to the Guardian , ISIS fighters have broken through government defensive lines in the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor, successfully surrounding a military airport and cutting off food supplies for roughly a quarter of a million civilians in the Syrian city. Remember when the Syrian army surrounded Aleppo and Western media accused the regime of cutting off supplies to over a quarter of a million residents in eastern Aleppo? Apparently, when ISIS does the same, it is not newsworthy. But there’s more. According to the Guardian , the ISIS fighters who successfully broke through government defense lines in Syria were “primarily reinforcements coming over the border from Iraq’s Anbar province.
