Queen Elizabeth II to get sovereign grant increase

Despite calls from party leaders and the like to scrap the grant all together. According to financial reports released from the Palace, the Queen's sovereign grant is expected to raise 6.5% for the next fiscal year to £45.6 million in 2017/18. The Queen gets a grant of the kind every single year, and, under current law cannot fall under or below the last year's fiscal roundup.  Graham Smith, CEO of Republic, has issued a startling demand that the palaces' allowance become under agreement with parliament to prevent excessive spending.

The Daily News is fighting off antitrust charges after revealing its colossal size

  Just days after The Daily News revealed its colossal size, we, have now come to learn that antitrust charges have been lobbied against this very newspaper.  As a privately owned massive online newspaper, we are not owned and are not controlled by any government entity; news agency, or mainstream television network. It has come to our attention that we have been categorized as "big" and big enough for government oversight and control. However, as a privately owned organization that has never received funding from an outside source -- we -- are entirely controlled by ourselves and SHK. We are unraveling a maneuver to prevent the takeover of our business, as, we have been ordered to turn over user information to authorities. The request has been swiftly rejected by SHK.

But, in a new push to rebrand SHK -- The Uptown Agency -- is announcing that Haleem Khan is set to invade Tumblr for the first time. In the coming weeks,  Khan's formal Tumblr page will be revealed. The tumblr page will feature unpublished pictures; diary entries, and photos from Khan's adventures around the world.

Parents in Arizona arrested after cocaine substance found in child’s system

TUCSON, ARIZONA ---   Apparently cocaine babies are a thing, at least,  for one couple in Arizona.  According to Tucson police Som Lisaius, 42, and Krystin Sorich Lisaius were arraigned Tuesday  on three charges related to their infant child testing positive for cocaine in their system. Police say that the mother, er, apparently had taken the drug at one point within the last week or so and then proceeded to breast feed her child shortly after. The problem?   Lisaius apparently thought that even though 12 hours had passed since consumption of the hard drug, that, the baby would be fine. But they weren't. Police tell The Daily News that the baby later tested positive for cocaine after being taken to the hospital.  The infant, just four months old,  is now in the custody of the state. ...

Reports: European Union attempting to reign in Europe with “Super State”

Could the European Union be headed in the direction of a mass dictatorship? According to the Express, that's the case. The Express reports that foreign ministers from France and Germany are gearing up to reveal blueprints for a massive European "Superstate" that would essentially end individual member states in the European Union. The news comes following the resignation of Labour MP members; David Cameron, and several top British politicians following the shocking "Brexit" vote that resulted in the United Kingdom preparing to leave the European Union forever. Under the new radical proposals,  each of the remaining "states" in the European Union would lose their ability to have a criminal justice system; their own tax penal code,  and a central bank. All of those powers would essenti...

Does Hillary Clinton still require the power of Elizabeth Warren ?

Monday marked the presidential turn of the century, or at least what many are hoping for.  Monday saw the first time Hillary Clinton and  Senator Warren took to the stage for the first time together.  The rally, held in Cincinnatti, is believed to be the  "audition" Warren was secretly looking for as the rumored Vice Presidential pick for Clinton. But, does Clinton still need Warren? According to the latest polls out this week, Clinton's lead over Trump nationally in America has gained momentum.  Polls show that Clinton now leads by at least 12 points nationally over her Republican rival  Donald Trump. Something she has been using to her advantage since the release of the latest polls. “Donald Trump says he’ll make America great again,” said Warren, who has relished her role as the ...

Scott Brown: Elizabeth Warren should take a DNA test

If you remember once upon a time, Elizabeth Warren,  famously claimed to be native American. And now, former Mass. governor Scott Brown is bringing that back into the election this season -- tentatively claiming that Elizabeth Warren should take a DNA test to prove her "Native Americanness". Turns out,  Brown had a point (of sorts).  During the 2012 Senate Race (which Brown still notably lost), Elizabeth, had claimed to have Native American roots. The problem? It later allegedly came out that (Warren specifically claimed to be Cherokee)  was only 1/32 Cherokee .. a big difference from her original claim. As you know, she's not Native American. She's not 1/32 Cherokee. She has no Native American background, except for what her family told her," Brown said, per CNN. "The easy answer, a...

Here’s what happened after this young lady asked for equal pay

Let this be a lesson: Stick up yourselves.   A Kansas City teenage girl and her friend are in the news this week after she apparently asked her boss for equal pay, but the response, was farthest from what Jensen Walcott had expected. Originally, Fox 5 had picked up the story,  which stated that when Walcott and her male friend Jake Reed had been hired at a local pizza joint -- they -- thought the experience would be great. Except, there was a problem. Reed had reportedly been informed that he would be paid $8.25 h/r, while, for the exact same thing Walcott would only get $8.00 h/r.  When Walcott realized the discrepancy, she, confronted the manager only to discover that she would later promptly be fired. The manager, per reports, claimed that the twosome had violated company policy b...
