President Trump’s talk of unity in his inaugural address sounded less like an appeal and more like an imperative, maybe even a command. “At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice,” Trump said.

A crowd of women joining the National Woman Suffrage Association, which was led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in 1869. On Saturday, when as many as 2 million women — and men — take to the streets in Washington, D.C., and around the world for the Women’s March, they will be following in the footsteps of women who have marched for progressive causes and civil rights at least since the late 19th century. In 1862, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton began working on Park Place in Manhattan across from City Hall, a street then known as Newspaper Row, to publish a periodical promoting suffrage for women.

By Tim Cocks BANJUL (Reuters) - Gambia's army chief on Friday abandoned embattled longtime leader Yahya Jammeh, saying his forces would not fight against a military operation to remove him, as regional leaders led a last ditch effort to convince him to flee into exile. The defection of General Ousman Badjie, who had previously stood by Jammeh, removes what was perhaps the former coup leader's last remaining pillar of support, potentially raising the likelihood of a peaceful solution to the political impasse. New President Adama Barrow, who won December's election, was sworn into office on Thursday and immediately called for regional and international support.

Since 2011, Sears has shut down more than 2,000 stores, meaning loyalists have to search far and wide to find a well-stocked Sears store, where 90 percent of Craftsman products are currently sold. While the Craftsman name might conjure up images of wrenches and socket sets, hand tools account for only about a third of Craftsman’s business.
