    (ABOVE: Am I the only one who's curious how the Washington Post uncovered so many women who made 40-year-old allegations against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore while uncovering none who made one-year-old allegations against Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Menendez?) Stop me if you've heard this one before. Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore walked into a brothel ... ... and then he walked right back out. That's the account I got from Bill Staehle, a lawyer living in Asbury Park who served in Vietnam with Moore in the early 1970s. Staehle, who is now 70, was a captain in...

    Dear Remainers,The morning after a senseless tragedy which has appalled the whole of Britain I’d like to ask you a simple question: Is there any depth to which you will not stoop in order somehow to snatch victory in this EU referendum? The answer I’m getting from some of you is: “Nope. None.”

    Progressive golden boy Justin Trudeau showed his authoritarian colors on Wednesday as he threw a temper tantrum in Canada's legislature, grabbing one member of Parliament and elbowing a female member in the breast. Why? Trudeau was upset that opposition MPs had taken a few moments longer than he liked to begin voting on a key piece of his legislative agenda. Trudeau's Liberal government had made a motion to shut down debate on a bill that would allow assisted suicide in Canada. Opposition MPs on both sides of the issue claim the government bill is flawed and needs more debate and...

    One of the candidates to lead Britain's Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, has come under scrutiny for comments he once made calling Islamist terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah his "friends." As the Labour leadership race heats up, Corbyn has seen his controversial comments - and his decision to invite members of the terrorist groups to parliament in the first place - come back to haunt him, with the topic being brought up in successive interviews Monday. But it seems the grilling was a little too much for Corbyn, who finally snapped during this interview with Channel 4: Video He is one...

    Notorious anti-Israel British MP George Galloway was hospitalized on Saturday after being assaulted in London. Galloway, who leads the far-left Respect Party, was posing for pictures in the UK capital when he was punched repeatedly by an attacker, who apparently "made reference to the Holocaust", a spokesperson told the media. The precise motive is not yet clear but police say they arrested a suspect, named as 39-year-old Neil Masterson of London, for religiously-aggravated assault, as well as common assault against a man who attempted to defend the radical MP. The suspect is due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on...

    Labour MP David Lammy has apologised after accusing the BBC of being racist following its tweet which said "LIVE VIDEO: Chimney of Sistine Chapel as conclave votes for #Pope - will smoke be black or white?" Lammy replied saying: "This tweet from the BBC is crass and unnecessary. Do we really need silly innuendo about the race of the next Pope?" However, after receiving several messages alerting him to the fact that black smoke appears from a Vatican chimney when no decision has been made, and white smoke alerts the public to the election of a new Pope, the politician...

    A Liberal Democrat MP in Britain faces expulsion from the party for saying Jews had not learned from the murder of six million in the Holocaust in their treatment of Palestinian Authority Arabs, the Daily Mail reports. David Ward, MP for Bradford East, wrote on his own website that he was “saddened” that Jews “could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians…on a daily basis.” “Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution...

No politicians should decide where people should live, but the reason behind thousands of people deciding to move away Is not something we politicians can just ignore. In the Grorud Valley blonde girls are harrassed into dying their hair dark. Children...

    FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (Feb. 16, 2011) — Friends and family members from the 512th Military Police Company spent a year waiting for their soldiers to return from Iraq, but Tuesday night, they had to wait an hour less than expected when the buses bringing the troops arrived about an hour early at Fort Leonard Wood. Based in the Kirkuk and Diyala areas of Iraq, the company consisting of about 170 military police was responsible for training Iraqi personnel in 30 district headquarters, two regional training centers, and a police training academy as part of the American military pullout from...

    Mr Timms told the Old Bailey he thought Roshonara Choudhry, 21, was coming to shake hands, and she smiled before lunging at him on May 14 this year. Mr Timms, Labour MP for East Ham, was sent ''reeling and staggering'' before retreating into the men's toilets at the community centre in Beckton, east London. His assistant Andrew Bazeley prised the kitchen knife away from her and she was placed in a ''bear hug'' by a security guard before police arrived. Another knife was found in her bag. Choudhry told detectives she was trying to kill Mr Timms for ''punishment'' and...

    This has never happened before: I had nearly completed a piece for Pajamas Media and then realized it was totally out of date within forty-eight hours. I had been trying to posit that British society is not conducive to the tea party movement that has been sweeping America. First, this is a small nation without recent experience of throwing off a colonial power. Some would argue that the brave defeat of Hitler by the British nation led by Winston Churchill was the ultimate spurning of a conqueror; the American “tea party” campaign is a peacetime social movement and obviously harks...

    Those interested in how we are governed have been pretty engaged recently with President Obama’s budget and the pork that is flowing out of Washington, D.C. British taxpayers’ attention is equally engaged with the misuse of their money at the hands of their own government officials. Blogs such as Guido and The Devil’s Kitchen have repeatedly delved into these machinations. Guido has even provided a handy chart of the worst offenders. The Devil’s Kitchen lists a guide to what you receive when you become an MP. A damning piece in the Telegraph on the whole subject of MPs’ expenses has...
