    A constitutional rights foundation has field an ethics complaint against members of the Democratic Party who staged a sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House recently in protest or the Republican-led House’s unwillingness to consider gun-control legislation. The ethics complaint came from the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust shortly after a couple dozen Democrat members of Congress took over the House floor and literally sat down for a day. It complains the Democrats were using the opportunity to send fundraising emails from the floor, and they were using official House images. The Hill reported House ethics rules bar...

Rubio during his failed bid for the Republican nomination, Mr. Levin now says “Rubio has a solid record” and echoed the praises from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a former presidential rival who also endorsed Rubio’s bid for reelection. “I support Senator Marco Rubio for reelection to the U.S. Senate as well,” he wrote. “The Senator has reversed his position on whether or not to run again, and I see his change...

    Hillary Clinton is seeking the presidency because of her insatiable quest for power, but she is both ethically and medically unfit for office – and she knows dark secrets that have Washington politicians “scared to death of her” – according to Bill Clinton’s former lover who is now the author of an explosive new book. Dolly Kyle is a former attorney who dated Bill Clinton in high school and carried on an affair with the future president both before and after Clinton married Hillary Rodham and until Clinton ran for president in 1992.

    The Obama administration has proposed a new agreement on Syria to the Russian government that would deepen military cooperation between the two countries against some terrorists in exchange for Russia getting the Assad regime to stop bombing U.S.-supported rebels. The United States transmitted the text of the proposed agreement to the Russian government on Monday after weeks of negotiations and internal Obama administration deliberations, an administration official told me. The crux of the deal is a U.S. promise to join forces with the Russian air force to share targeting and coordinate an expanded bombing campaign against Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s branch...

    HF-24 Marut is India’s first indigenous fighter. For the HAL and the IAF, July 1, 2016 is a throwback to April 1, 1967. On April 1, 1967, HAL had handed over India’s indigenously designed fighter, HF-24 Marut to the Dagger squadron of the IAF. It was a culmination of a dream dreamt in independent India by Jawaharlal Nehru, to attain self-reliance in the design and production of aircraft. The IAF was asked to provide the requirement for an indigenous fighter in the mid-1950s and the HAL was tasked for the project. In August 1956, Kurt Tank, a German aerospace scientist,...

    Sirte, 450 km (280 miles) east of Tripoli, became Islamic State's largest outpost beyond its Iraq and Syria territory. It was taken last year by militants who profited from Libya's war among rival factions to gain control of territory and impose their hardline vision on the city. Losing Sirte would be a major setback for the group and a big blow to morale as it also struggles to hold ground in Iraq, where it has lost the city of Falluja and other territory to forces backed by U.S.-led air strikes. Islamic State are being squeezed by a tightening ring of...

    A big part of politics is appearances and perceptions. If something looks bad, people will likely conclude it is bad — even if there's no actual evidence or proof of its relative badness. Politicians know this; it's why they don't wear funny hats or get in tanks (anymore). And it's why Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch should have known better when they huddled privately at the Phoenix airport earlier this week. Lynch is the nation's top cop and, as such, oversees the FBI, which is conducting an investigation into whether Hillary Clinton or any of her associates broke...

    Hillary Clinton could be interviewed in the coming days as part of the federal investigation into her “homebrew” email setup.

Multiple current and former aides to Clinton have reportedly answered the FBI’s questions in recent months, in what appeared to be a path leading to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee herself. According to ABC News , the Justice Department's goal is to complete...

It's fully autonomous, meaning the robot can slice toppings, grill a patty, and assemble and bag the burger without any help from humans. The internet flipped out. Years of relative silence ensued, but in January, Hoodline's Brittany Hopkins learned that the San Francisco-based startup had applied for a building permit to convert a ground-floor retail space in the SoMa neighborhood into a restaurant. Now it looks like the restaurant is actually...
