    Tony Blair faces being called to Parliament over a secret deal with Sinn Féin, which allowed suspected IRA bombers to avoid prosecution. The former Prime Minister is set to be summoned by the Northern Ireland select committee to explain the controversial “comfort letters” sent to on-the-run suspects telling them they were not being sought by the police. MPs are warning that if he fails to appear, there will be “bad publicity”. The policy led to the collapse of the trial of suspected Hyde Park bomber John Downing in March. The peace process plan agreed between Sinn Féin and Mr Blair’s...

    Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., has recently compared conservative efforts to defund Obamacare to kamikaze pilots and Gen. George Custer. Thursday, he called the effort "fraud." "There's a wing within our party led by people like (Sen.)

Cruz, R-Texas, has been leading the defund effort along with Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah. More moderate members of the GOP say the effort will only hurt the...

    Rep. Peter King of New York—who told Newsmax this week he may seek the GOP nomination for president in 2016—says the major reason he would run is to save the troubled Republican Party. And the New York congressman took a shot Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and other Republican lawmakers for their “isolationist policies.” “It bothers me when the leading Republicans out there—someone like Rand Paul seems more concerned about an American being killed in Starbucks by a CIA drone than he is about Islamic terrorism,” King told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” … He added Paul and...
