  • PENNSYLVANIA CHILD RAPE SUSPECT TO JUDGE: 'I'M SCARED TO DEATH'

    A man, accused of raping multiple children in Bucks County, Pennsylvania faced a judge for the first time on Tuesday morning. William Thomas, 58, issued a flat denial to the disturbing allegations during his preliminary hearing. He appeared via video from prison. Thomas was arrested late last week on child pornography charges, and five additional counts of child rape were filed on Monday. In court, Thomas told Judge Jan Vislosky, "I'm scared to death, ma'am." He said he "never inflicted any pain on a child, nor would I want to." Thomas did not have an attorney, and the judge repeatedly...

    It may have just been coincidence, or perhaps something more symbolic, but whatever it was, Joe Biden saw the lights go out on him as he mentioned US "leadership" during his last major speech as vice president, in Davos, Switzerland. "We are going to retain our position of leadership," Biden was telling the audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, when the lights on stage began to dim. Rendered a dark silhouette, and seemingly unimpressed, the outgoing vice president carried on talking about the West's ideas and visions of the world. "If we don't fight for our values, no...

    Outgoing U.S. Vice President Joe Biden called on Monday for sanctions on Russia to stay, urging the world to stand up to its "coercion and aggression" after President-elect Donald Trump mooted ending the measures under a possible deal with Moscow. Speaking on a swan song visit to Kiev, Biden said the G7 nations and European Union should lift the sanctions only after Russia had fully implemented a peace deal on ending a separatist rebellion in eastern Ukraine and returned control of Crimea. Trump, who will be inaugurated on Friday, raised the prospect that he would propose offering to end the...

    Joke not a joke. Way back in the olden days - 2015 to be precise - I really believed that Joe Biden was going to run for President. It just made sense. Despite his inarguable status as America’s touchy-feely gaffe machine, ‘Crazy Uncle Joe’ has a proven track record of winning. At the time, I felt (and still feel) that Biden would have been a much more dangerous candidate than Hillary. Anyone with a pair of third-rate eyeballs could see that Mrs. Clinton was going to be a disaster. Biden may be wrong about everything but, unlike Hillary Clinton, he...

The choice of Klain to head the administration’s emergency response to Ebola was criticized as a political move.

    On Wednesday, America's Vice President Joe Biden will arrive in Turkey. His main mission is to smooth things over with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is getting angrier with the United States by the day. The reason Erdogan is so angry with the United States is, Erdogan says, that America still provides a safe haven to Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, who Ankara accuses of being behind the failed military coup on July 15. Both before, but especially after the coup, the Turkish government has accused Gülen, who lives in Pennsylvania, of being a terrorist leader comparable to ISIS self-declared...

In doing so, we also stand with Pope Francis in preserving the dignity and meaning of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The two strands of the dignity of the person and the dignity of marriage and the family are interwoven. To pull apart one is to unravel the whole fabric. When a prominent...

On today’s Morning Joe, Heilemann argued that Biden and Obama’s plagiarism wasn’t as bad, because they ripped off fellow liberals: Neil Kinnock and Deval Patrick, respectively. In contrast, passages in Melania’s speech came from a 2008 Michelle Obama speech. Per Heilemann, that made Melania, or the person who prepared those passages for her, a “moronic plagiarist.” Heilemann omits one important thing: Melania is the wife of the candidate, for whom English...

Clinton claims that the Libyan bombing campaign was an example of “smart power at its best.” If she actually believes that, it raises serious questions about her judgment, as well as about her ability to analyze foreign policy dispassionately and with the best interests of the United States at heart.

The Vice President’s comments echo those of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who warned that Japan and South Korea acquiring nuclear weapons “is going to happen anyway” in controversial remarks issued in March. Japanese government officials and media responded to Trump’s comments much more severely than they have to Biden’s. “What...

    Top figures in the Democratic Party pummeled Donald Trump Thursday as they publicly coalesced around Hillary Clinton for the first time in her push for the White House. The three-pronged attack from President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren came on the same day the former and latter formally endorsed Clinton. The fiercest attack came from Warren, who excoriated Trump as "a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and who serves no one but himself" and warned of a "full-scale assault on the integrity of the federal judiciary and its judges."...

    Whenever a shooting event, like the murder-suicide at UCLA, gains national notoriety, there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth over “our” alleged failure to deal adequately with issues of “mental health.” Tragically, it is the rarest of figures who dares to challenge this consensus. But challenge it we must, for as innocuous as the term sounds, “mental health” is fraught with philosophically problematic assumptions and implications. First, the sole reason for concluding that, say, Mainak Sarkar, the UCLA gunman, is “mentally ill” is that he became a murderer. Yet this in turn logically implies that anyone who murders is...

    US Senator Elizabeth Warren has been a liberal favourite since her election in 2012. An outspoken critic of big business and a proponent of more regulation on the banking industry, the Massachusetts Democrat earlier this month led an effort to stop the $1.1tn government funding bill because it included changes to the 2010 Dodd-Frank law that imposed strict rules on Wall Street. Now Warren’s liberal supporters are touting her as a viable alternative to former Secretary of State and presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Rodham Clinton for president in 2016. The left-liberal website MoveOn.org recently launched a campaign to draft Warren...

    Former Attorney Gen. Eric Holder’s contention that former NSA contractor Edward Snowden performed a “public service” by leaking classified documents is “outrageous,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday. “That’s a truly outrageous comment,” the Kentucky senator told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” program. “It makes me glad I voted against confirming him. He’s the worst attorney general in history.” […] McConnell, pivoting to his book, recounted behind-the-scenes dealings with President Barack Obama, saying that it was Vice President Joe Biden who was the one who could really get things done. “The president is a very smart guy, but I...

    EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Vice President Joe Biden said Rhode Island needs to invest in its transportation infrastructure after touring a dilapidated highway bridge he joked is being held up by a children's toy. "For 10 years, you've had Lincoln Logs holding the damn thing up. Go look at it," he told a crowd of local politicians and construction trade and labor leaders who gathered Friday to hear him speak.
