    Share in the excitement of #PopeInDC! On September 23, after meeting with President Obama at the White House, Pope Francis will drive a short parade route between the Ellipse and a portion of the National Mall in the Popemobile.

    In her recent column Trump the Disrupter, Maureen Dowd wrote, “…Trump can go badly astray, as he did with the president’s birth certificate.” Astray? Here’s what Trump said about Obama’s birth certificate when asked in a recent interview by Anderson Cooper on CNN: Cooper asked: “Do you accept that President Obama was born in the United States?” “I really don’t know,” Trump responded. “I don’t know why he wouldn’t release his records; but, honestly, I don’t want to get into it.” Before shifting to a different topic…Trump rebutted with a few facts on the subject. “Do you know that Hillary...

    Embattled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hit back hard on Sunday at critics who say he went too far with caustic comments about a U.S. television news anchor, insisting no apology was necessary and defending his relations with women. "I've had such an amazing relationship with women in business. They are amazing executives. They are killers. They are phenomenal," Trump said on ABC's "This Week." The billionaire and television personality, who leads the polls in the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, appeared on Sunday news shows to rebut the latest wave of outrage triggered by his off-the-cuff talk....

    The female co-chair of Donald Trump's Iowa campaign is firing back against criticism that the real estate tycoon's comments about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly were sexist and inappropriate. -snip- Tana Goertz, Trump's Iowa co-chair, said she did not interpret the comment in the same way critics have, and was not offended. "I've always been treated with dignity and respect," she said. "I am a woman. I experience that every month. And it never crossed my mind. So I think people are just looking at pinpointing him as sexist and all these other things," Goertz said. I mean, we fought...

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump sought to redirect incoming fire at rival Republican Jeb Bush, saying that Bush has a "huge" problem with women and he is by far the better candidate with that demographic. Trump excoriated Bush for saying "I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues" at a speech in Tennessee last week. Bush later said he misspoke, and he was only questioning the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood. "This is worse than what Romney did when he blew 47 percent of the vote with his ridiculous statements," Trump said, referencing a...

    I didn’t watch Obama’s performance at West Point on May 28; I freely confess it was all I could do to read his commencement address. So I do not know if America’s mac-daddy president thought he would showcase how cool he is by fist-bumping and chest-bumping the graduating cadets. But, with that said, he did showcase his unrelenting petulant penchant for choosing public forums to attempt to embarrass and belittle those he is incapable of coercing or bullying into submission.

    A former aide to Vice President Joe Biden has written a tell-all book that describes the VP as an “egomaniacal autocrat” who was “determined to manage his staff through fear” – an October surprise that the Obama campaign probably didn’t see coming. Author Jeff Connaughton, a former Biden Senate staffer, says Biden originally inspired him to get into politics but the experience working under the former Delaware senator caused him to become disillusioned with the political system in Washington. The book is called “The Payoff” and it was actually quietly released last month. Connaughton writes, as Politico describes it, “in...

Indeed, he compared his suffering to Martin Luther King Jr.'s suffering. From Politcker: Standing in Weinstein’s basement, Obama said his troubles are like the ones facing Cuomo. “When I ran in 2008, I think that a lot of folks believed we elect Obama and suddenly we’re going to fix politics in Washington,” Obama said. “And Andrew is familiar with this, because everybody figures, well, we’re going to fix politics in Albany.” “And then it turns out...

The Herriman Republican said he has had to start charging for speaking engagements, a move that appears to be a first for Utah lawmakers and one the House speaker questioned as possibly trying to “leverage” his elected position. Wimmer, the co-founder of the states-rights-oriented Patrick Henry Caucus, said he has received several invitations to discuss the group’s principles, but the cost of travel has become a burden.

    A reader points out that President Obama's call with the rabbis today -- as recorded in Rabbi Jack Moline's and other clerics' Twitter feeds -- freights health care reform with a great deal of religious meaning, and veers into the blend of policy and faith that outraged liberals in the last administration. "We are God's partners in matters of life and death," Obama said, according to Moline (paging Sarah Palin...), quoting from the Rosh Hashanah prayer that says that in the holiday period, it is decided "Who shall live and who shall die." The president ended the call by wishing...

The billionaire and potential independent presidential candidate also said the nation "has a balance sheet that's starting to look more and more like a third-world country."

But numbers are only part of the story. Between the radio and his evening "Hannity and Colmes" on the Fox News Channel, the 44-year-old Hannity has risen above a crowded pack to become one...

Member of Parliament Tomas Galbavy says, "I am offended by this film. I think that all Slovaks should feel offended."
