Brian Terry's family hits Democrats over opposition to border wall

Today 14:31 GMT

The family of a Border Patrol agent who was killed in 2010 said Tuesday that Democrats should agree to President Trump's request for $5 billion to fund a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Late Tuesday, Trump tweeted that Democrats "are saying loud and clear that they do not want to build a Concrete Wall - but we are not building a Concrete Wall, we are building artistically designed steel slats, so that you can easily see through it. "It will be beautiful and, at the same time, give our Country the security that our citizens deserve," Trump added.

Let Trump shut down the government. Then watch him suffer the consequences.

Today 14:31 GMT

Stephen Miller, President Trump's irritable White House aide, declared on national TV over the weekend that the president was "absolutely" ready to make good on his threat to shut down the government if he doesn't get money for his border wall in the upcoming appropriations bill. "This is a very fundamental issue," yelled Miller at George Stephanopoulos.

RealClearPolitics' Bill Scher has pointed out Trump has kept this threat alive throughout 2018 — issuing it virtually every month in April, June, July, and early September, only to flinch when congressional Republicans, terrified that a shutdown would torpedo their midterm prospects, prevailed on him to back-off and make a deal to keep the government funded.

Why Fixing Sloppy U.K. Auditors Matters for Wall Street

Today 09:54 GMT

If auditors can’t be trusted to do a thorough job of policing company accounts, then the minimal costs that companies currently pay are wasted money and there is no point to them at all.

Poor U.K. auditing standards are a problem for U.S. investors, too, because the U.K. arms of the Big Four audit the British divisions of U.S. companies such as Amazon and Citigroup. In a report published Tuesday, the U.K. antitrust regulator criticized a lack of competition and the way auditors are appointed on the basis of “cultural fit” or price.

These Design Rules Are Meant to be Broken

Today 14:31 GMT

Stick with the same color palette; don’t mix metals; paint small rooms light colors—these age-old design dictums may be drummed into your decorating brain, but these days, they are best left on the cutting room floor.

It’s a little too big for the space and has almost no storage, but it reminds her of her late grandparents who gifted her the piece years ago. For example, one of my favorite clients has a beautiful, antique vanity in her bedroom that belonged to her great-grandmother.

An earnings double whammy may add fuel to the fire on Wall Street

Today 14:31 GMT

Most important, Wall Street is already on edge after devastating declines in the fourth quarter, so weak forecasts from two companies with more data than their earnings predecessors and important placements in the supply chain will not go over well.

Republicans have become their own caricature of postmodernism

Today 10:50 GMT

If there is any political faction that behaves like the most hysterically exaggerated caricature of postmodernism, it is the current Republican Party.

Tuesday 09:54 GMT

Beyond the Fed, market participants will watch for the final reading of gross domestic product on Friday, as well as developments that threaten to partially shut down the U.S. government, as well as policy updates from the Bank of Japan and the Bank of England, amid that country’s messy process of exiting from the European Union.

Monday 13:35 GMT

The deal capped a confusing series of events that unfolded Friday night when a proposed three-team trade fell apart over confusion about whether Dillon Brooks or MarShon Brooks would be included.
