    Former President Jimmy Carter urged Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) to run for president in an Instagram Live video on Sunday. Booker, who is known for his social media savvy, took to the platform to film a road trip through Georgia with civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) ahead of MLK Day. After the two lawmakers attended a church service led by Carter in his hometown of Plains, Booker featured the former president in a video. “I’m very glad to have you here this morning, and I hope you come back,” Carter said. “And I hope you run for president.”

    IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. — Iredell County deputies said they arrested a man they say sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl he met online. Officers said a mother found Jarred Workman, 27, of Albemarle, hiding in her daughter's bedroom closet Friday. Workman made his first appearance in court Tuesday morning. People inside the courtroom gasped at the charges Jared Workman is facing --16 counts of first-degree statutory rape. If convicted on all of them, he could serve life in prison without parole.

    So who WERE the two Tory ministers who had gay flings with Christopher Hitchens at Oxford? By Geoffrey Levy 06th March 2010 Alpha minds in and around Westminster that normally grapple with issues such as the forthcoming election, the sinking pound and the war in Afghanistan, were turned this week towards a ticklish and wholly unexpected political mystery. Which two ministers of Margaret Thatcher's government had gay relations with the writer Christopher Hitchens while at Oxford? Since Hitchens's extraordinary claim emerged this week, the louche figure, now 60, who has been married twice, has fended off all requests for further...

    With only six primaries left - and Barack Obama’s resounding lead over rival Hillary Clinton - many people have basically declared the delegate selection over. That, however, would be premature. While the majority of the states and overseas regions’ delegate numbers have been determined, most of them must still decide which individuals will head to Denver this August. have ruled which candidate gets how many delegates, most of them still must decide who will head to Denver this August. And, like so many things in this election, there’s loads of drama surrounding the process. Infighting, allegations, personal homophobia and potentially...

    Their tempest began well before their presidential campaigns. When Senator John McCain claimed victory for a round of primaries Tuesday, it came as little surprise that he skipped over the criticism of Senator Barack Obama's policies. Instead, he zeroed in on another long-held aggravation: A perception that Obama wears a political halo. "I don't seek the presidency on the presumption that I am blessed with such personal greatness," McCain said, "that history has anointed me to save my country in its hour of need." A contentious relationship between McCain, a Republican from Arizona, and Obama, a Democrat from Illinois, has...

    Woman artist gets death threats over gay Muslim photos Matthew Campbell THE Dutch were debating the limits of freedom of expression last week after an artist who photographed gay men wearing masks of the prophet Muhammad was forced into hiding and her work removed from a museum exhibit. Speaking on the telephone from an unspecified location in the Netherlands last week, the artist, an Iranian exile who goes by the pseudonym of Sooreh Hera, said she had been threatened with “execution”. She accused the director of the municipal museum in The Hague of cowardice for caving in to Muslim extremists....

    WASHINGTON — Idaho Sen. Larry Craig will resign from the Senate Saturday after pressure from fellow Republicans to step down after an arrest in a men's room sex sting, according to a report. Craig decided to resign with plans to make the announcement on Saturday, the Associated Press reported. Craig will hold a news conference in Boise on Saturday, his spokesman, Dan Whiting said, but he would not say whether the three-term senator planned to step down. Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, however, appeared to have settled on a successor: Lt. Gov. Jim Risch, according to several Republicans familiar with...

    Arafat's doctor: His blood had HIV, but poison killed him 12/08/2007 By Danny Rubinstein , Haaretz Correspondent Late Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat's blood contained the deadly HIV virus, Arafat's personal physician told Jordanian media over the weekend. Dr. Ashraf al-Kurdi stressed, however, that Arafat did not die of AIDS - which is caused by the virus. Jordanian news site Amman quoted al-Kurdi - a former Jordanian health ministry official - as saying that the virus had been injected into Arafat's bloodstream close to his death, and that the real cause of the chairman's death was poison. Hours earlier, al-Kurdi...

    American Conservative Union ^ | 7/18/2006 | David A. Keene
    The war over immigration reform among conservatives continues, and, as in most wars, truth has been one of the first casualties. Those who disagree with the hardening positions of people who would adopt more restrictive policies or with people who favor less restrictive measures are attacked as know-nothings, traitors or handmaidens of evil forces out to destroy the America we live in. Many conservatives reacted angrily to the way the Bush administration tried to demonize opposition to the president’s quasi-amnesty and guest-worker proposals when they were first introduced. Critics at the time were characterized as racists or “nativists” more interested...

    (Former Vice President Al Gore, who previously supported the Defense of Marriage Act and civil unions, was the keynote speaker at the Human Rights Campaign Gala on March 25, 2006, at the Century Plaza Hotel. This is an excerpt of his speech.) Abraham Lincoln once said, "I do good and I feel good. I do bad and I feel bad, and that is my religion." As a Christian, I was taught at an early age that the single most important departure in Christianity from the Judeo-Christian tradition as a whole was embodied in the simple teaching -- God is Love....

    Metrosexual California men are donning the latest in designer wear, exfoliating like there's no tomorrow and heading off to spas for seaweed wraps with increasing regularity. But the “playbook” for the metrosexual lifestyle is apparently still being written and this has left some men feeling a little confused about what is acceptable “metro” behavior. Don Ragsdale, from Los Angeles, is one such confused male and last Saturday night he inadvertently ran a play straight out of the homosexual playbook. “I initially felt a little uncomfortable with some metrosexual rituals, especially the anal waxing, but I was getting a lot of...

    Curtis Wittwer was somewhat reluctant to see a film about two cowboys in love. The 64-year-old retired state worker, who saw "Brokeback Mountain" with his girlfriend Tuesday night, said he doesn't ordinarily seek out gay-themed movies. Still, he counted five reasons for seeing the film: It's a western, it's directed by Ang Lee, the screenplay is co-written by Larry McMurtry and it's been getting rave reviews. Plus, he was egged on after reading a New York Times piece by Larry David in which the comedian satirically complains that watching the movie could turn him gay. "It was just a beautiful...

    Sometimes you need to be reminded of where you came from to understand where you're going. The Club for Growth is giving one senator such a reminder today with the launch of an ad campaign designed to send a simple message: Higher taxes are not the answer for Social Security reform. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina came to the Senate with a strong record of cutting taxes to support increased freedom and economic growth. But in the debate on Social Security reform, Mr. Graham has suffered a sort of economic amnesia. He is proposing a large tax increase, in...
