    The most potent moment of the Democratic convention last week was when Khizr Khan, father of an Army captain killed in Iraq in 2004, challenged Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States. "You have sacrificed nothing and no one," Khan said to Trump, holding aloft a copy of the Constitution that he suggested Trump read. Trump's immediate response was to criticize Khan and his wife, earning a number of rebukes from veterans and members of his own party. "There are certain sacrosanct subjects that no amount of wordsmithing can repair once crossed," said a statement from...

    This showed up in my FB newsfeed today, regarding something that occurred earlier this week while I was in Colorado: Things got awkward on Monday when Donald Trump asked an Asian-American college student if he was from South Korea. A 20-year-old Harvard economics major identified by NPR as Joseph Choe had launched into a query about South Korea during a question-and-answer session at the No Labels-hosted Problem Solver Convention in New Hampshire. "I just had a really quick question about something you said earlier this summer," Choe said in video captured by C-SPAN. "Basically, you said that South Korea takes...

    Vice President Biden told Vladimir Putin that he did not believe the Russian leader had a soul during a visit to the Kremlin in 2011, the vice president said in a New Yorker magazine interview published Monday. Biden said the incident occurred while he was touring Putins office in the Kremlin. I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, Its amazing what capitalism will do, wont it? A magnificent office! And he laughed. As I turned, I was this close to him, Biden said, signaling that the two leaders were standing just inches apart....

    For a Republican Party embarked on a mission of modernization, an ethnic slur uttered by a senior House Republican this week offered an unwelcome reminder of the past. Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) used a derogatory term for Latinos in a radio interview Thursday, less than two weeks after the Republican National Committee issued a post-election report that called for broadening the partys tent. The comment, coupled with an anti-gay remark that an RNC official posted on his Facebook page this week, highlighted the challenge Republicans face in their nascent effort to woo a more diverse cross section of America as...

Rick Perry is backing off the upcoming GOP debate schedule, committing to just one of the next three events between now and Nov. 15. Perry has struggled in the five debates he has attended since he joined the race in mid-August. At one, he fumbled an attempt to cast rival Mitt Romney as a flip-flopper. At another, bickering between Romney and Perry drew criticism that the candidates were acting juvenile. Perry hinted at his frustration with the debates earlier this week when he...

CNSNews reports: "The projection of revenues has stabilized, not decreased. That is a very good sign because it is a sign that people are in fact making money and will be in a position, because they're making money, to pay a portion of that in revenues to the federal government."

    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Ukrainian regulators on Tuesday ruled there was no collusion among Russian oil companies earlier this year during a fuel crisis that caused gas prices to rise sharply and filling stations to run dry. But the Anti-Monopoly Committee fined British-Russian oil company TNK-BP 50,000 hrynvas ($9,980) for distributing unreliable information in connection with the crisis, which prompted the government to briefly impose price controls. Regulators had been considering anti-monopoly cases against the large Russian oil companies, including Lukoil, that dominate the Ukrainian gasoline station market.

But they decided not to ban Brown from the House debate that day, as rules allow when members' reputations are impugned. Afterward, Brown told the Times-Union she stood by her statements. She at one point said, "I would have clarified it." Asked how, she paused and replied, "The truth of...

A: He wanted to see time fry. At a certain age, though, innocent joke-telling has a way of developing into making fun of others. A funny haircut, a few extra pounds on the belly, an unusual accent or unfamiliar religious beliefs -- it's all fodder for the...

    CLARKE WITNESSED FIRST-HAND THE CLINTONS' UTTER FAILURE TO FIGHT TERRORISM "If Clarke's plan had been implemented, [i.e., if clinton had responded to the bombing of the USS Cole, a clear act of war, militarily instead of telephonically!] al Qaeda's infrastructure would have been demolished and bin Laden might well have been killed.
