Good Morning! We here at Constitution.com want you to get your day started right, which is why we’ve decided to help you catch the morning’s news highlights. We know that you’ve got a busy day ahead and you may not necessarily have time to surf the web looking for the things you need to know, so we’ve gone ahead and done that for you.

We’ve gathered a short list of some of what we think are the most important headlines of the day and placed them all right here for you.

So without further ado, here’s the News you can Use for Saturday, November 18, 2017.

We’ve learned that it’s dangerous to get your hopes up about reform in Washington, D.C., but it really does seem like we may be on the cusp of finally seeing some important tax reforms.

The GOP’s tax reform bill is far from perfect but it’s a BIG win for the American taxpayer nonetheless. The House just passed a bill that would cut taxes by $1.5 Trillion!

At the heart of the bill: slicing the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent. Democrats, who never met a tax they didn’t want to raise, pretend this is a gift for the rich. But the cuts would mean fewer firms fleeing to lower-tax nations. That could tighten the US job market and boost wages. The plan also offers savings for individual taxpayers… 

If the Democrats want to stop being a minority party from our nation’s extreme coasts, they have got to start running more moderate and centrist candidates.

President Trump’s trip to Asia was a rousing success and he brilliantly distilled America’s new position on trade in a way that should make the path forward for our trade partners very clear.

The anti-Trump cabal continues to ignore the incredible progress he’s making on many different fronts.

The GOP should be very, very worried about what is happening in the Alabama Senate race, but there just doesn’t seem like much they can do about it.

Though Senator Al Franken’s (D-MN) own scandal may be enough to draw the fire away from Roy Moore in the weeks leading up to the Alabama special election. Could a liberal Midwestern Democrat save the normally reliable Alabama seat for the GOP?

By the way, some pundits and observers are warning that Al Franken is “just the beginning” of what could become a very ugly unveiling of Washington’s sins.

With the hung jury in Senator Bob Menendez’s corruption trial, it seems that bribery has become legal in the USA. If Robert Menendez can’t be found guilty of corruption… then no one can.

Menendez enjoyed ready access to Melgen’s private jets and luxury resorts financed by that Medicare fraud — and the New Jersey senator went all the way up the chain to the secretary of Health and Human Services to keep the money flowing.

He got visas for Melgen’s supermodel girlfriends and he tried to steer a lucrative port-security contract to the eye doctor who had no security background. Customs and Border Protection official Stephanie Talton testified that she found it “odd” Menendez would “ask us to stop our law-enforcement mission.”

Lavish gifts are sometimes used to cultivate friendships with sitting senators, it turns out, and once that friendship is cultivated, the senator is apt to do such friendly things.

Yea, Chris Christie has a few regrets… but don’t expect him to be making any apologies.

It’s not just politicians who have problems keeping their libido’s in check – the restaurant industry is rife with sexual abuse too.
