  • In Exchange for Scoop, Hillary Team Dictated Reporter’s Story

    In an email to Gawker, Ambinder said, "It made me uncomfortable then, and it makes me uncomfortable today. And when I look at that email record, it is a reminder to me of why I moved away from all that. The Atlantic, to their credit, never pushed me to do that, to turn into a scoop factory. In the fullness of time, any journalist or writer who is confronted by the prospect, or gets in the situation where their journalism begins to feel transactional, should listen to their gut feeling and push away from that."

    A Black Lives Matter activist killed himself on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse, say the authorities. State Highway Patrol officials tell the Columbus Dispatch that MarShawn M. McCarrel II, 23, shot himself outside the front door of the Statehouse on Monday evening. Lt. Craig Cvetan says McCarrel , who was from the Columbus suburb of Franklin Township, died at the scene. He was not a state employee. Cvetan says it's unclear why McCarrel killed himself. 'We don't have any evidence to know the reason why he did it,' Cvetan said. Authorities say nobody saw the shooting, but the man...

    The White House expects the domestic economy to be able to power through the headwinds including a stronger dollar, weaker oil and financial turmoil. According to assumptions in the budget released Tuesday, the White House sees growth of 2.6% this year and in 2017, the best back-to-back years since 2005 and 2006. The U.S. economy grew 2.4% in 2015. In presenting his final budget, President Barack Obama sounded like he was in no mood for second-guessing. “Our economy is the strongest, most durable on Earth,” he said in the introduction. The White House forecast is not far away from consensus...

    Former First Lady Barbara Bush appeared alongside her son and presidential candidate Jeb Bush on CBS "This Morning" on Friday, mocking Russian President Vladimir Putin's positive comments about Donald Trump. Jeb Bush, once the presumed front-runner for the Republican nomination for president, has fallen dramatically in the polls over the past several months while Trump has overtaken him and the rest of the field. On CBS, Jeb Bush vowed to stay in the race even if he loses the New Hampshire primary, which is set to be held next Tuesday.

It was also reported that one of the migrants took selfies of himself with a smartphone. The famous bath house has since banned migrants from entering. In the midst of Angela Merkel's disdainful complacency and willingness to appease progressives, the German people have become louder with every passing day. Something has begun to brew in Germany that might derail Angela Merkel's leadership and open the door – wide...

    A recent US intelligence report said that Daesh (also known as ISIL/Islamic State) is degrading. Two coalitions - one led by the US and the other by Russia - have been involved in fighting the terrorists. It is high time to figure out some differences between the two approaches. The Common Goal Russia, the United States, and Syria have one common enemy - the terrorist group Daesh. In September 2014, US President Barack Obama pledged to destroy Daesh with massive airstrikes. "Our objective is clear: We will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counterterrorism strategy. We...

    A close associate and protégé of far-left activist billionaire George Soros gave a super PAC supporting Ohio Gov. John Kasich $200,000, the third largest contribution made to Kasich’s presidential effort as of the end of 2015. Soros, who has given $7 million to a PAC backing Hillary Clinton this election cycle, is a huge backer of all things liberal. This election, Soros has made clear his opposition to the GOP front-runners, saying: “We must reaffirm our commitment to the principles of open society and resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, however hard that...

    Ms McGath has been studying links between the two killers for two years, especially the letters they both wrote, and she told Daily Star Online : "There are just so many similarities between Zodiac and BTK." She said the authorities ruled out a link because of a "general alibi" assuming Rader was serving in the US air force in Japan at the time of Zodiac's crimes. But she said he could easily have travelled back to California to carry out the killings and she points out in her book how close many of the killings were to air force bases....

The two biggest are Kaymakli and Derinkuyu; the latter is estimated to have been able to house up to 20,000 people. Both cities have been known for decades. But this new underground town, hiding beneath a centuries-old castle on a hilltop right in Nevşehir, just might be the biggest. One early estimate by geophysicists put its area at nearly five million square feet and its depth at 371 feet. If those estimates are...

In an op-ed condemning the Illinois Evangelical higher education institution for suspending and attempting to fire political science professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins for asserting that Christians and Muslims worship the same deity, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad argued that the school's belief that the two religions don't worship the same God displays a level of "ignorance."

    Ted Cruz sounded despondent at the possibility that same-sex marriage could become legal when he called into the radio show of Tony Perkins, a vehement opponent of gay rights, in February 2014. "Our heart weeps for the damage to traditional marriage that has been done," Mr. Cruz said, urging conservatives to pray but also to fight back. "Be as wise as serpents and gentle as doves," he said, quoting Scripture. But seven months later, when Mr. Cruz visited the Midtown Manhattan office of a major Republican supporter of same-sex marriage, he sounded almost indifferent: If New York politicians wanted to...

He said that such indiscriminate bombing — which would kill innocent civilians as well as enemy combatants — is “inconsistent with our values” as a nation. The U.S., he said, has a guiding set of principles that govern how American forces conduct themselves on the battlefield. “Right now we have the moral high ground and that’s where we’re going to stay,” he said, noting reports that Russia has conducted carpet bombing...

In an interview with Press TV, Eric Draitser said that Kerry's remarks hint at Washington's fading influence in Syria.

Martin O’Malley, who suspended his campaign last Monday night, earned 1 percent. New Hampshire’s Democratic-leaning voters are also fairly certain about their candidate before next Tuesday’s primary, pollsters found. About 81 percent would “definitely” vote for Sanders, versus...

The French news agency recently received confirmation of Trump’s nomination from Kristian Berg Harpviken, the director of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo. According to Harpviken, the Nobel committee received a letter (whose author has not been revealed) nominating Trump for his “vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS, nuclear Iran and Communist China.” MSNBC...

    Today, Paul Ryan gave a fascinating speech at Heritage Action, a tea party-allied organization that has fashioned itself as the guardian of conservative purity. The speech called for unity. “To quote William Wallace in Braveheart,” he said, “we have to unite the clans.” But his speech was actually a repudiation of everything the tea party has done. Not only that, Ryan also took shots at the congressional Republican leadership, and even the current GOP presidential candidates. He didn’t call anyone out by name, but if you understand what’s happening now and the conflict that has roiled the Republican Party for...

    Two Generals in the military have come forward to say that women should now have to register for the draft, as the Defense Department has opened up combat jobs to women. Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley agreed that the current policy, which requires only males register for the Selective Service System, should be changed after restrictions that barred women from trying out for combat jobs were lifted last year. "Every American who's physically qualified should register for the draft," said Neller at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday. "I think...

  • Harry Reid: "Did You See Any Diversity In Iowa?"

    Rollcall ^ | 2/1/16 | Neils
    A day after the Iowa caucuses and a week from the New Hampshire primary, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is back blasting the lack of diversity in the states that come before his home of Nevada in the presidential nominating process. Asked about the outcome in Iowa, where Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., finishing very narrowly behind former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Reid highlighted his role in changing the process to put more focus on the subsequent contests in states with more diverse Democratic electorates. His efforts helped move Nevada’s Democratic caucuses earlier in the electoral calendar.
  • Ryan and McConnell Find Little Commen Ground With White House (Most likely gave everything away)

    Rollcall ^ | 2/2/16 | John T Bennett
    President Barack Obama’s private meetings with congressional Republican leaders appeared to do very little to break the legislative impasse that largely has defined his tenure. Descriptions of the meeting from both ends of Pennsylvania Ave. were clinical at best. Notably missing were usual Washington declarations that a high-level meeting was “productive” or “constructive.” Asked about that omission, an aide to Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., called the speaker’s time on Tuesday with Obama “cordial.” And, in a fitting bit of symbolism, Ryan departed the White House for yet another House vote on a measure to repeal Obama’s signature health care...

    Fearless special forces troops donned the full-length Islamic dress to sneak undetected through the terrorists’ de facto capital Raqqa and take down the terrorist commander. The eight-man SAS squad also eliminated several jihadi fighters after lifting up their burkas and opening fire on the stunned militants, who had no time to hide from the hail of bullets.

    November 18, 2007 By Jack Voelkel GLADYS AYLWARD Small Woman, Big Heart, Great Faith The half-starved Chinese prisoners in Yangcheng were rioting. In the center was a man with a large bloody kitchen meat cleaver. All were shouting. Several men had already collapsed on the ground, mortally wounded. The warden called to A-Weh-Deh, “Go in and stop them!” The woman known to foreigners by her English name, Gladys Aylward, stood trembling at the entrance. “Why me?” she gasped. The warden challenged, “You tell us your God is all powerful. Is He or is He not?” “He is,” she declared, seeking...

    A Spanish scientist working at the Salk Institute in California told Scientific American that Pope Francis personally blessed his cutting-edge research to mix human cells into animal bodies. Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, a prominent stem-cell biologist, is engaged in efforts to grow human tissue inside of farm animals such as pigs, sheep, and cows. This type of research is sensitive because scientists have to inject human stem cells into early-stage animal embryos, then try to grow the mixtures inside surrogate animals. Much of Belmonte's work occurs in collaboration with a team in the province of Murcia in his native Spain,...
