    Washington (AFP) - Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Ukraine on April 22 to stress US support for Kiev and steps to improve its energy security amid a crisis with neighboring Russia. During his meetings with government leaders and civil society groups, Biden will "underscore the United States' strong support for a united, democratic Ukraine that makes its own choices about its future path," a White House statement said Saturday. The announcement came just a day after Washington unveiled sanctions against six of Crimea's breakaway leaders, including the official who signed the deal with Moscow to split the peninsula...

    Russian leader Vladmir Putin sent in troops and tanks to invade neighboring Ukraine and the Obama administration is coming to the rescue with . . . selfies! State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was mocked Thursday after posting a photo of herself on Twitter holding a sign that read #United­For­Ukraine @State­Dept­Spox.” Psaki, who has worked closely with President Obama since his 2008 campaign and is the chief communications adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry, is smiling and giving a thumbs-up in the photo. But the cheerleading for beleaguered Ukraine wasn’t trending or scaring off bully Putin, said critics in the blogosphere. “Presenting...

    WASHINGTON—U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, in a call Monday to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, urged Russia to pull back its forces from Ukraine and to support the "immediate deployment" of international monitors. Mr. Biden, according to a summary of the call released by the White House, also told Mr. Medvedev that Russia needs to start a "meaningful political dialogue" with the Ukrainian government. Mr. Biden's call with the Russian prime minister follows a 90-minute discussion Saturday between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin and underscores the Obama administration's efforts to find a diplomatic solution to the Ukrainian...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke out Friday against Congressional Republicans’ strategy to defund Obamacare, holding that it is not “effective.” “We’re more effective tactically not to use a shutdown of some kind to pursue the … anti-Obamacare objective,” Romney told CNN. “I don’t think that will be as effective.” Romney’s comments are scheduled to appear on Friday’s episode of CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper”. (Also on POLITICO: Viewers guide to shutdown drama) Both chambers of Congress must pass a continuing resolution, or CR, by Sept. 30 to keep the government from shutting down.

    Ah, but of course. All those undecided Iowans and unenthusiastic Republicans across the country lack but one thing: The nudge in a particular direction only a Donald Trump endorsement could provide. Never mind that Trump’s attempt to moderate a debate collapsed. Never mind that every time he reenters the discussion, somebody’s bound to bring up his birtherism to the detriment of his broader message. Never mind that, last week, he changed his party affiliation to “unaffiliated” to preserve his right to run for president of himself as an independent. “Millions of people” still look to Trump to decide which of...

    Send in the clown. That’s the message voters in Brazil’s largest state have sent to Congress. With 1.3 million ballots cast in his favour, a professional clown named Tiririca won more votes than any other candidate in Sunday’s elections. It’s the second-highest tally ever recorded in Brazil’s history. “It’s amazing, this is from God,” he said after the vote. Tiririca’s bid to represent Sao Paulo state in the Chamber of Deputies was widely supported as a symbolic protest against government corruption and scandals. Tiririca, whose moniker is Portuguese slang for “grumpy,” campaigned on the slogan “Vote Tiririca! It can’t get...

"She's pretty cut up," said a performer who saw the violence at the "Gathering of the Juggalos" in rural Hardin County, Illinois. The witness asked not to be identified so that he does not anger the juggalos.

    Virtual meat hooks, flame throwers, and propane bombs are OK, but attack dogs are not: social-gaming behemoth Zynga has removed pit bulls from its roster of virtual weaponry in the Mafia Wars game after a complaint last month on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. PETA's reasoning is that promoting a domestic animal as a weapon will only encourage misunderstanding and abuse of pit bulls, which have been routinely used in illegal dog-fighting activities and are often subject to horrific conditions as their owners attempt to toughen them up. The breed of dog has gotten bad press...

    WASHINGTON - So far, the first lady has chosen to be a food bank volunteer with an outsize entourage and an education activist with the largest soapbox imaginable. But Michelle Obama also fills a role that is not of her choosing but that may, in fact, be the most influential: She serves as a symbol of middle-class progress, feminist achievement, affirmative-action success and individual style. And she has done all this on the world stage . . . while being black. Time and again, observers grasp for adjectives to describe Obama's combination of professional accomplishment and soccer-mom maternalism. It's no...
