Big Surge for Military in Trump Budget, Big Cuts Elsewhere

President Donald Trump is proposing a huge $54 billion surge in U.S. military spending for new aircraft, ships and fighters in his first federal budget while slashing big chunks from domestic programs and foreign aid to make the government "do more with less." The Trump blueprint, due in more detail next month, would fulfill the Republican president's campaign pledge to boost Pentagon spending while targeting the budgets of other federal agencies. The "topline" figures emerged Monday, one day before Trump's first address to a joint session of Congress, an opportunity to re-emphasize the economic issues that were a centerpiece of his White House run.

Suspected Car Thief Arrested After Bronx Chase: Sources

A man with a long rap sheet for robbery, drugs and assault on cops was taken into custody after a police chase in the Bronx Monday, law enforcement officials say.  It began when officers tried to pull over a van they suspected was stolen near Tiffany and East 165th streets just before 6 p.m., law enforcement officials said. The driver backed up and hit the patrol car, then took off. The car finally stopped at East 175th Street and Marion Avenue, and police took the suspect into custody. Chopper 4 was over the scene and exclusively captured the arrest.  The suspect, Jimmy Alvardo, has a history of 31 arrests dating back to 1987, authorities said. He was on parole for his most recent conviction of hitting an officer.  In September 2006, he hit a uniformed officer while driving, and the cop was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital with a leg injury, officials said.  He's also failed to answer summonses for vehicle infractions 115 times,

This is peak NYC."  A friend of Hagerty who witnessed the occasion detailed on Reddit: "The bottle did, legitimately, roll out from under the seat. The man in the suit, confused, picked it up and proceeded to pop it. He offered some to the man next to him, who grabbed an empty Hennessy bottle from under his seat (not sure it was his) and the man in the suit poured him some wine into the empty Hennessy bo
