    Former Vice President Joe Biden is throwing his support behind the budding NBA boycott over Jacob Blake’s shooting by police, arguing that “now is not the time for silence.” Biden, the presumptive Democrat nominee, took to social media shortly after the Milwaukee Bucks opted to boycott the fifth game of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Bucks, who were set to face off against the Orlando Magic, decided to not take the court in solidarity with Jacob Blake, the 29-year-old African American man from Kenosha, Wisconsin, who was shot in the back seven times by police. As a result of the...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren would rather praise communist China than the President of the United States. The 2020 presidential hopeful and darling of the left appeared on CBS This Morning to hawk her new book when host John Dickerson brought up North Korea and the progress President Trump’s made in pressuring the rouge nation to de-nuclearize its military. But Warren insisted the president doesn’t have a clear strategy, and suggested Trump take ques from North Korea’s communist neighbor to the north. “There is a North Korean official apparently coming to America. You said the president doesn’t look like he has...

    Mitt Romney- "Donald Trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works and to create jobs, he has done it in Nevada and across the country. He is one of the few people who stood up and said China has taken jobs from Americans. We believe in free trade but we have to have a President to stand up and not allow people to cheat day in and day out."

    The Obama administration is praising protesters who successfully forced University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe to announce his resignation. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest praised the group of protesters for rallying together and demanding change, pointing out that Obama’s first presidential campaign was embodied by the same spirit. “I think this also illustrates something that the president talked a lot about in the context of – in his campaign, that a few people speaking up and speaking out can have a profound impact on the communities where we live and work,” he said during the daily press briefing today....

    HAVANA (AP) — Pope Francis hailed detente between the United States and Cuba as a model of reconciliation for the world, urging Presidents Barack Obama and Raul Castro to persevere in building normal ties as the pontiff launched a 10-day tour of the former Cold War foes Saturday. Francis' surprisingly direct call for progress toward normalization came after weeks of Vatican assurances that he would not explicitly address politics during his pastoral trip to Cuba and the U.S. Francis served as mediator and guarantor of 18 months of secret negotiations that led to the resumption of diplomatic relations between the...

    Speaking from the White House Tuesday, Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Americans can be confident airports around the country are secure and that President Obama still has confidence in the TSA.

"The President does continue to have confidence that the officers of the TSA do very important work that continues to protect the American people and continue to protect the American aviation system."

    Speaker of the House John Boehner is praising the Senate's passage of the trade bill and calling on Democrats to join with Republicans to pass the law in the House. “Trade helps create good-paying American jobs, so it’s good news that the Senate has put us one step closer to eliminating trade barriers. These reforms have the support of farmers, manufacturers, small business owners, and Americans from all walks of life, and it’s not hard to figure out why," Boehner says in a statement. "With trade promotion authority, we’ll be able to hold President Obama accountable so America’s workers can...

    President Obama adds: In this sense, Iran’s leaders have a choice between two paths. If they cannot agree to a reasonable deal, they will keep Iran on the path it’s on today—a path that has isolated Iran, and the Iranian people, from so much of the world, caused so much hardship for Iranian families, and deprived so many young Iranians of the jobs and opportunities they deserve. President Obama continues to speak of Iran’s “leaders” as if anyone other than the Ayatollah would have a final say on the nuclear deal. His White House has frequently decried congressional efforts to...

    Speaking at the Women’s Leadership Luncheon in Gaborone, Botswana on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama praised the country for being a “thriving democracy” filled with “kind and generous people.” A U.S. Department of State report on Botswana’s human rights record, however, concludes that the country is still struggling with problems such as violence against women, child abuse, and discrimination. “[I]t is a pleasure to be in this beautiful country that embodies what my husband has called ‘a vision of Africa on the move,’” Obama said at the luncheon in Gaborne where young women were honored for their leadership.

    The barbaric attack by a Palestinian Muslim on a Jewish family living in the West Bank settlement of Itamar on Saturday has been widely reported (see here–Atlas Shrugs has photos here). Five innocent people–two parents and three of their children–were savagely stabbed to death in their sleep. On the English section of the website of the al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, there was only the following short statement, denying any responsibility on the part of Hamas for the attack: Palestinian National Movement Hamas official Ezzat Al-Rashak said that the movement is not responsible for the murder of the...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is praising Republicans in the state Senate who have voted to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from public workers. Republicans cast the quick vote Wednesday after discovering a way to bypass the chamber's missing Democrats. All 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois nearly three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to consider Gov. Scott Walker's so-called "budget repair bill" - a proposal introduced to plug a $137 million budget shortfall.

    Amid unrest in Libya, where on one side the United Nations has condemned the Muammar al-Qaddafi regime for its crackdown on pro-democracy protestors, the organisation's Human Rights Council is poised adopt a report praising the oil rich country for its human rights records. The review praises Libya for improving educational opportunities, for making human rights a "priority" and for bettering its "constitutional" framework. Several countries, including Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Saudi Arabia have rated Libya positively for the legal protection given to its citizens, who are now revolting against the regime, Fox News reports.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is praising the House for passing legislation to end the Pentagon policy that bans gays from serving openly in the military. The legislation awaits Senate action now. The House passed the measure 250-175. Obama says the legislation permits a smooth transition from the Clinton-era 'don't-ask-don't-tell' standard. Obama says the legislation will give the military "the clarity and certainty it deserves."

    Maybe next, they'll invite Osama bin Laden to the State Department dining room for a cup of tea: On January 14, 2010, a former Guantanamo detainee named Moazzam Begg met with the foreign minister of Luxembourg to discuss the resettlement of additional detainees in Europe. Afterward, Begg attended a screening of "Taxi to the Dark Side," a film that portrays America's detention policies in the worst possible light. Begg also participated in a Q&A session with members of the audience. This prompted an American diplomat who was in attendance to write a summary of the event and of Begg's "barnstorming"...

    WASHINGTON — Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina said Tuesday that she opposes a ban on assault weapons and supports a U.S. Supreme Court decision this week affirming a constitutional right to bear arms. In a 45-minute question-and-answer session with reporters here, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO also repeated her backing of Arizona's controversial immigration law and said she would support efforts to repeal the federal health care reform measure. But the fundamental issue in the race against three-term Sen. Barbara Boxer, Fiorina contended, will be whom voters trust more on the economy, and she said the contrast between the two could...

    OAKLAND — Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman was in town Tuesday for some face time with a big employer and corporate campaign donor, but not to answer any questions about policy issues or the state of the race. The former eBay CEO was at Union Pacific's intermodal facility at the Port of Oakland for about two hours, long enough to tour the rail yard; meet with company officials; and do a closed-door interview with a conservative columnist — but not long enough to take any questions from reporters the campaign had invited, who were allowed only to watch a five-minute...

    PHILADELPHIA – Paying tribute to "our rabbi" – the radical 1960s theorist Saul Alinsky – leaders of the left-wing Jewish lobby J Street launched what they hope will be a national mobilization, before an audience of about 175 people at the University of Pennsylvania Hillel center last night. After he "conferred" rabbinical ordination on Alinsky, Temple University professor Elliot A. Ratzman used rhetoric from the late father of community organizing about "organizing people and mobilizing resources" to inspire conference attendees, which included many veteran activists of the Jewish left.
