    In trying to make the case that Democrats are tougher on protecting the border than Republicans, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to the Sept. 11 attacks as merely an “incident.” That “incident,” of course, killed nearly 3,000 Americans in the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil. Pelosi’s comment came during a discussion about the Trump administration’s positions on immigration and its claims about how Democrats are weak on border security. The California Democrat made the case that Republicans aren't actually that strong on this issue because they did not implement some of the recommendations from the 9/11 Commission. “We...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Remember all that talk of the NFL losing viewership?

    As Georgia’s demolition of Tennessee continued Saturday, the game kept feeling more like Clemson’s win at Miami in 2015. That was the game in which it became apparent Al Golden could not get the job done as Hurricanes coach, and Miami responded the following day by firing Golden. Tennessee did not respond Sunday by firing Jones—much to the chagrin of a vocal and growing segment of the fan base that has checked out on the football program’s current administration and awaits new leadership. The Volunteers, who are now effectively eliminated from the SEC East title race unless they can pull...

"Senator McCain received an MRI at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland yesterday," the statement reads. "Following the advice of his doctors, Senator McCain will continue to receive targeted radiation and chemotherapy treatments at NIH while maintaining a regular work schedule in the United States Senate."
  • The Tiny Pill Fueling Syria's War and Turning Fighters Into Superhuman Soldiers

    Washington Post ^ | 11/19/2015 | Peter Holley
    As The Post's Liz Sly recently noted, the war in Syria has become a tangled web of conflict dominated by "al Qaeda veterans, hardened Iraqi insurgents, Arab jihadist ideologues and Western volunteers." On the surface, those competing actors are fueled by an overlapping mixture of ideologies and political agendas. Just below it, experts suspect, they're powered by something else: Captagon. A tiny, highly addictive pill produced in Syria and widely available across the Middle East, its illegal sale funnels hundreds of millions of dollars back into the war torn country's black market economy each year, likely giving militias access to...

    Two-year-old Eden Carlson lost a significant amount of brain tissue after spending 15 minutes underwater. Director of Hyperbaric Medicine, Dr. Paul Harch, says she made remarkable improvements after being treated with oxygen for 45 minutes twice a day. Weeks later, Eden’s parents brought her to New Orleans, and Harch put her in a hyperbaric chamber. “I dosed it at the same level of oxygen but now with pressure, and she made another very noticeable improvement with just the first hyperbaric treatment and from there just accelerated,” Harch said. In February of 2016, Eden escaped the baby gate in her home...

    There’s nothing like a little violence to focus the mind. I am the Middlebury College professor who ended up with whiplash and a concussion for having the audacity to engage with the ideas of Charles Murray, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Though he is someone with whom I disagree, I welcomed the opportunity to moderate a talk with him on campus on March 2 because several of my students asked me to do so. They know I am a Democrat, but the college courses I teach are nonpartisan. As I wrote on Facebook immediately after the incident, this...

    President-elect Donald Trump labeled a congressional district that sweeps through the heart of Atlanta as a “crime infested” area that is in “horrible shape” in an early-morning tweet Saturday aimed at one of his most outspoken Democratic critics. The Republican was unloading at Georgia Rep. John Lewis, who has represented the Atlanta district since his 1986 election, after the civil rights icon made national headlines when he told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he will skip Trump’s inauguration next week. “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling...

    First lady Michelle Obama´s speech this week slamming Donald Trump´s comments about women was "the most effective political speech since Ronald Reagan," according to right-wing commentator Glenn Beck. On his TV program Friday, Beck said his viewers should watch Obama´s speech to see its "devastating effects. And I don´t mean on Donald Trump. I mean on the conservative movement." "We had been talking about, ´there is no war on women.´ You just handed them a war on women," Beck said. "And if you listen to her words carefully, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, they are coopting women and it...

    Leo is 10 years old. For most of his life he's lived as a girl, but this summer he began to speak openly about his sense that this didn't feel quite right. With research help for his parents, he's decided he is non-binary - in his case, both masculine and feminine - though for the moment he dresses as a boy and has taken a male name. This is Leo's story in his own words. I'm not a boy. I thought I was a boy, because I'm not entirely a girl. We tried that for a bit, and I thought:...

I just think he is thoroughly, totally, completely uninformed,” Biden said. “He has no idea what the hell he’s talking about. And guess what? That’s...

    For many years, rumors surrounding Hillary Clinton's health would surface but then they would magically disappear, which is something the Clinton's are good at making happen. We have seen dozens of reports signaling Hillary Clinton has been in and out of the hospital since 2007 with seizures, a concussion, and a brain clot. While this photo is unconfirmed, we are working to confirm that this is in fact Hillary Clinton. When Hillary Clinton announced she was running for president in 2015, many began to question if she was fit and mentally stable enough to endure a long campaign and even...

    Hillary Clinton could not stop showing her agreement during a roundtable in Los Angeles on Thursday, nodding her head almost without a break for at least three-and-a-half minutes during one man’s remarks. Salam Al-Marayati, the head of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, spoke at length near the end of the roundtable with other Muslim community leaders about, among things, the positive role Muslims could play in the United States in combatting radicalization. Clinton, seated to his right, nodded fervently throughout his speech. She also nodded a lot at the other speakers that discussed myriad issues involving the American Muslim community....
