    John McCain was in a reflective, wisecracking mood Wednesday morning in Washington, but even in his most upbeat moments, he couldn’t find much kind to say about Senate colleague Ted Cruz. The GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee told reporters at a press breakfast that he wanted to “accentuate the positive” in the 2016 race. He tiptoed around real estate tycoon Donald Trump’s steely grip on the Republican presidential primary. When asked about the possibility of Trump becoming the party’s nominee, he emphasized that he’s a loyal Republican. McCain did point out that he had disagreements with Trump. But then, unbidden, he...

    BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillarys Email Server Hillary Clintons email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesnt appear that relief is on the way anytime soon.

He specifically mentioned Clintons trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhoods core...

    A Naval engineer is facing charges that he gave an FBI undercover agent posing as an Egyptian intelligence officer secret documents about the new Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier while discussing how to sink the vessel with a missile. Mostafa Ahmed Awwad, 35, of Yorktown, Va., was arrested Friday on an FBI affidavit that reads like it came from a Tom Clancy novel. Federal prosecutors in Virginia say that during his conversations with the undercover, Awwad arranged to use a dead-drop location along a secluded hiking trail to pass secrets about the Ford, which is being built in Virginia for...

    In 1993, Bill Clinton joked, "Gosh, I miss the Cold War." And, he explained, somberly: "We had an intellectually coherent thing. The American people knew what the rules were." Such Cold War nostalgia vexed many conservatives. It seemed to us that the Cold War consensus had broken down with the Vietnam War. Clinton himself didn't much like that Cold War endeavor, which is one reason he worked so assiduously to avoid serving in it. A young John Kerry did serve, but he also threw away his medals and denounced his fellow servicemen as war criminals. Jimmy Carter, meanwhile, had proclaimed...

    CAIRO, December 15 ( Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsy Clarke expressed readiness Sunday, December 14, to act as defense lawyer for ousted Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, with western analysts suspecting the captured leader would be given fair trial. "Certainly, why not. I am ready to act in his defense," Clarke told shortly after the U.S. confirmed the detention of Saddam near Tikrit. Clarke, currently in Cairo to attend a two-day international anti-occupation conference, stressed that Saddam however brutal should be give a "fair, objective and impartial trial". "Saddam must be domestically prosecuted first and - if...

    BLOODY COST OF PEACE: Jewish activist witnesses horror of terrorism SCOTT FROST , Staff Writer 08/20/2003 Abe Greenhouse will never forget the bloodshed. The Rutgers University student will never get used to the sights he encountered during his one-month peace mission to Israel. He will never get used to the looks on childrens faces at the scene of violent acts generated by social and civil unrest in a tiny land shared by nearly 5 million Jews and 4 million Arabs. Yesterday, however, it was the look on faces of Orthodox Jews praying at the scene of another terrorist attack in...

    The news that five members of the Supreme Court were winging their way over to Italy on the heels of the decision striking down Texas' anti-sodomy law seemed somehow appropriate. Some of the flying judges were no doubt there to discuss their newly proposed constitution -- given as the official reason for the junket. But two or three of them must have at least contemplated communing with European elitists on how they ought to vote on upcoming cases here. After all, in the Texas case they had for the first time in a majority opinion cited European public opinion, decisions...

    Bush's Cover-Up Precedes the Scandal NEW YORK--"When it's all said and done," Bush still confidently insists, "the people of the United States and the world will realize that Saddam Hussein had a weapons program." This once again begs the question of presidential dyslexia: You're supposed to find the WMDs before the war, silly rabbit! This bizarro Administration does everything bass-ackwards. The recession is hardest on the poor and middle-class, so Bush gives tax cuts to the rich. When an overwhelming invasion force was needed to secure Afghanistan and Iraq, Rumsfeld sent in a skeleton crew. Now that the citizens of...

    Peter Jennings takes up U.S. citizenship After pondering the idea seriously for a decade -- and weathering a recent controversy in which his Canadian roots were an issue -- ABC News anchor Peter Jennings has become an American citizen. The Toronto-born journalist, who was raised in Ottawa and still retreats from fame every summer to a farm in the nearby Gatineau Hills, said yesterday the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. and his recent travels throughout the country have made him feel "much more connected to the Founding Fathers' dreams and ideas for the future." Mr. Jennings, who...
