    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the late Justice Antonin Scalia were honored Monday by Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. During a speech she gave at the event, Justice Ginsburg described Senator Lindsey Graham as one of the women of the Senate. Justice Ginsburg gave a brief talk about civility and her friendship with the late Justice Scalia. She then made an implied contrast between the era in which she and Scalia were confirmed and the present day. I thought back to the 1993 confirmation of my nomination to the court, she said. She continued, The hearing was altogether civil....

    The navy admiral nominated to be the next US ambassador to Australia has told Congress America must prepare for the possibility of war with China, and said it would rely on Australia to help uphold the international rules-based system in the Asia-Pacific. In an excoriating assessment of China's increasingly muscular posture in the region, Harry Harris said Beijing's "intent is crystal clear" to dominate the South China Sea and that its military might could soon rival American power "across almost every domain". Harris, soon to retire as the head of US Pacific Command in Hawaii, told the House armed services...

    Roughly 5 ¹/₂ million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, a disease that ravages sufferers’ memories and, ultimately, stops their bodies from performing basic functions. There’s no cure, and not much that patients and their caregivers can do to stop the progression — but according to Joseph Jebelli, a neuroscientist and author of “In Pursuit of Memory: The Fight Against Alzheimer’s” (Little, Brown; out Oct. 31), hope is on the way. He estimates that there will be a medication to prevent the disease within the next 10 to 20 years. “[The idea is to push] the disease back, by developing a drug...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has decided to take the gloves off to encourage others to see President Trump's the way she does, the House Democrat said in a New York Times profile published on Friday. Trump was just so outrageous, so disrespectful, such a bully and dangerous for this country, I decided, You know what? Im taking the gloves off and Im going to step out, Waters told the Times, explaining her bombastic rhetoric toward the president. She has called for his impeachment. I was going to not only challenge him but encourage others to see him for what he...

    Senator Bernie Sanders has said it is likely he would have beaten Donald Trump in the 2016 election, but that it doesnt matter now that Mr Trump is president. He was speaking on Showtimes The Circus when he was asked about populism in the US and how Mr Trump had tapped into it to win. What I recognised was pain. All over this country people are hurting and they are hurting very badly. Trump understood that, by the way, and that's why he said, 'The whole system sucks. I'm going to blow it up, Mr Sanders said. Mr Sanders has...

    Rep. Devin Nunes', R-Calif., actions as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee "killed" any hope for a bipartisan investigation, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Sunday. "This is obviously a schism between Republican and Democrats, let alone that bizarre fashion with which all of this happened," McCain told ABC's "This Week" about Nunes' visit to the White House to view sensitive documents and briefing the president before members of his bipartisan House Intelligence Committee. {..snip..}

"I think there needs to be a lot of explaining to do, McCain told CBS This Morning. Ive been around for quite a while and Ive never heard of such thing.

    (CNSNews.com) – The Unites States should phase-out all denominations of the U.S. dollar larger than a $10 bill to thwart money launderers and tax evaders, Harvard economist Kenneth Rogoff told attendees at a Council on Foreign Relations event this week in Washington, D.C.“Cash is not used in ordinary retail transactions. It’s used by tax evaders and in a lot of crime of all types, including drug trafficking, human trafficking, extortion, racketeering, you name it,” said Rogoff, a member of the economic advisory panel of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and author of The Curse of Cash.“Cash is being used...

    Before he died May 4 from complications stemming from pancreatic cancer and a stroke, former GOP Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah asked his wife, Joyce, and son, Jim, if there were any Muslims in his hospital. If so, he wanted to "go up to every single one of them to thank them for being in this country, and apologize to them on behalf of the Republican Party for Donald Trump." Joyce and Jim Bennett shared this story with The Daily Beast, as well as other tales involving his disgust with "Donald Trump's xenophobia" and proposal to ban Muslims from...

    Donald Trumps damage to the Republican Party, although already extensive, has barely begun. Republican quislings will multiply, slinking into support of the most anti-conservative presidential aspirant in their partys history. These collaborationists will render themselves ineligible to participate in the partys reconstruction. Ted Cruzs announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trumps choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified. Hillary Clintons optimal running mate might be Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio,...

    Former President Bill Clinton ridiculed Barack Obama on Monday calling for people to get to a point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us. During a campaign rally in Spokane, Washington, the former president said that Hillary is the only person who basically has good ideas, will tell you how shes going to pay for them, can be commander-in-chief, and is a proven change maker with Republicans and Democrats and independents alike. Clinton praised his wife claiming that from the time I met her 45 years ago until we talked yesterday, she is...

    Hillary Clinton, appearing Tuesday at a townhall in Keota, Iowa, had a hard time understanding a young voter asking about immigration. The voter introduced herself and began asking a question about the ICE's "reputation" for deporting low-priority immigrants and poor treatment of women. "Can you just slow down a little bit, I'm having a hard time," Clinton interjected. The young woman did not appear to be speaking abnormally quickly. "I want to hear you, so just slow down a little," Clinton repeated. The voter then asked about Pastor Max Villatoro who was deported to Honduras after convictions for drunken driving...

    I don't know if you can believe the National Enquirer but the front page of the latest issue says she has a brain tumor, blood clots, MS, and is an alcoholic. Doctors are saying she has about six months to live. If this is not true then I think this is a bit too much for the National Enquirer to be printing this stuff.

    The most recent Quinnipiac poll is awful news for Hillary Clinton. Most voters dont view her in a favorable light, and the first words that come to mind when they think of her are liar, dishonest, and untrustworthy, while bitch and murder are slightly lower down the list. Shes getting outperformed by Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden in head-to-head match-ups with the leading Republican candidates. Democratic voters seem to be holding out for Joe, because they love him. If theres a silver lining in the poll, its the fact that Hillary Clinton would still win a three-way race against Jeb...

    Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) is back with his colleagues in Washington, D.C., after winning his hard-fought primary runoff but he had a bit of trouble finding Senate Republicans' weekly luncheon on Tuesday. Cochran, while talking with The Hill, made a few wrong turns before accidentally ending up at Senate Democrats' luncheon. After exiting a Senate elevator on the wrong floor, Cochran and The Hill reboarded. He then found the right floor but turned away from the Senate GOP luncheon, a few yards from the elevator, to stroll in the opposite direction, arriving at the Democrats' weekly gathering a few...

    Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., got lost on his way to a Senate Republican luncheon on Tuesday and ended up at the Democrats' gathering instead, the Hill reported. The Mississippi senator, who recently won an intensely ugly primary election against Tea Party-backed candidate Chris McDaniel, apparently forgot where he was going while navigating the halls of Congress. After exiting a Senate elevator on the wrong floor Cochran re-boarded, the report notes. He then found the right floor but turned away from the Senate GOP luncheon, a few yards from the elevator, to stroll the opposite direction, arriving at the Democrats' weekly...
