    Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan announced his retirement Friday, bringing to a close a turbulent period for the law enforcement agency that included a South American prostitution scandal and a pair of White House gate-crashers. In nearly seven years as director, Sullivan had to answer serious questions from lawmakers on two occasions about his employees’ actions on the job and off. Last May, in testimony before Congress, Sullivan apologized for the conduct of Secret Service employees caught in a prostitution scandal in Colombia. Thirteen agents and officers were implicated after an agent argued with a prostitute over payment in a...

    China is poised to take over operational control of a strategic deep-water Pakistani seaport that could serve as a vital economic hub for Beijing and perhaps a key military outpost, according to officials. The construction of the port, in the former fishing village of Gwadar in troubled Baluchistan province, was largely funded by China at a cost of about $200 million. It has been a commercial failure since it opened in 2007, because Pakistan never completed the road network to link the port to the rest of the country. Chinese control of the port would give it a foothold in...

    Chinese authorities have detained four people, state media said Saturday, a day after at least 11 people died when a truck loaded with fireworks for Lunar New Year celebration exploded, collapsing an elevated portion of highway in central China. The accident sent vehicles plummeting 30 meters (about 100 feet) to the ground, and state-run China Central Television said 11 people were now confirmed dead and another 11 injured. The official Xinhua News Agency said the collapse smashed and buried at least 25 vehicles. Rescue work continues Saturday. CCTV said Saturday that the truck that exploded took the road without proper...

The products concerned have been withdrawn immediately, a spokesman said. He added: "All prisons have been informed about this very regrettable incident and we reported this issue to the Food Standards Agency immediately. "We are taking immediate steps to suspend the contract with the relevant subcontractor." Justice minister Jeremy Wright said: "This is an absolutely unacceptable situation and one which we regret greatly. Clearly this must be distressing...

    Former Sen. Scott Brown said Friday he would not run in a special Senate election in Massachusetts, dealing a setback to Republican hopes of winning the seat being vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry. Brown, who electrified his party with an upset win in a 2010 special election but lost his re-election bid in November, ended weeks of intense speculation about his future with a written statement announcing his decision. … GOP officials in Washington and Massachusetts widely considered Brown the strongest possible Republican candidate in a state that traditionally favors Democrats. With Brown out of the running, potential...

Support is drawn down partisan lines with 68 percent of Republicans opposing an assault weapons ban and 62 percent of Democrats in support of such a ban.

    The reviews are in for Chuck Hagel’s appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee. If he were a Broadway play, as opposed to a mere nominee for Defense Secretary, Hagel would close after one performance. The Obama administration was not amused. White House officials told CBS’ Major Garrett that they were disappointed with Hagel’s performance. Indeed, one Obama staffer described Hagel’s testimony on Iran as “somewhere between baffling and incomprehensible.”

Before Wolk got involved, the minority shareholders of a company Lee founded in the 1990s had for a long time unsuccessfully litigated over these characters, but Wolk has not been dissuaded. “We are in the right here,” says Wolk in an interview. “No court has ever addressed or ever decided who...

    A Facebook campaign launched to save the life of a dog sentenced to death took an interesting turn when police officer Lars Bo Lomholt went above and beyond the call of duty, kidnapping him from the kennel where he was being held, and rushing him away to a safehouse. The Copenhagen Post originally reported that Thor had been kidnapped from his holding cell. At first, it was believed that the dog’s savior was impersonating a police offer as a means of disguise. Only later was it revealed that an actual animal loving member of the force had taken it upon...

The following is a list of countries that initiated gun control and confiscation: Turkey, Soviet Union, Germany, China, Guatemala, Uganda and Cambodia; and the result -- 55, million citizens murdered. Not on a street corner by a thug, or in a parking lot by a gang member, but by their very own government. Mr. Pierce should do a little more research as to what our founding fathers were concerned...

    The list of the twenty-five top-grossing films (worldwide) of 2012 has been released, and I believe there are a few important lessons that proponents of free enterprise, limited government, and traditional Judeo-Christian values can learn from its inventory. First, let’s take a look at what types of stories drew the most attention in 2012. The top three – Avengers, Dark Knight Rises and Skyfall – are all superhero/action flicks. At their core, they are “good vs. evil” morality plays. They are about the pursuit of justice and defense of the defenseless. They are about sacrifice and loyalty and love. Of...

And, in discussing the need for care about gun safety, the O’Connor opinion cited the Newtown school childrens’ massacre as a reason to keep guns out of the “wrong hands.” The comments came as she wrote for a three-judge panel of the Second Circuit Court, as it asked...

"It's obvious Hagel's toast, so the President is preparing another nominee based on the same criteria he used to pick Chuck Hagel," said the source. "The new nominee for Defense Department head will be a rubber dog toy." Upon hearing news of the replacement, Sen. Inhofe remarked, "Sounds like Bo picked this one - it's definitely an improvement over the last guy."

Tasteless, yes, but just a metaphor. Quote: A resentment not against the North Vietnamese who imprisoned and toured him all those years, not against George W. Bush and his political henchmen who tried to stain McCain’s reputation back in 2000, but against a guy who fought against fear and rallied...

    n what appears to be a slap in the face for gender equality, the report found the divorce rate among couples who shared housework equally was around 50 per cent higher than among those where the woman did most of the work. “What we’ve seen is that sharing equal responsibility for work in the home doesn’t necessarily contribute to contentment,” said Thomas Hansen, co-author of the study entitled “Equality in the Home”. The lack of correlation between equality at home and quality of life was surprising, the researcher said. “One would think that break-ups would occur more often in families...
