    CNN's Washington bureau is suffering from low morale and high anxiety in the wake of weeks of layoffs and buyouts — with one employee likening the place to the Redskins’ locker room. In conversations with POLITICO, sources at the bureau spoke of tension in the office as several longtime staffers have been let go while others are being promoted and given raises. On Friday, during the most recent departures, "people were crying all over the bureau," one D.C. employee said.

    Challenger to Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) told Human Events that conservatism has been lost due to a lack of resolve by a leader who is at-odds with Republican Party principles and too eager to help President Barack Obama. “Once again, Speaker Boehner surrendered to the president—this time without the fight we were promised,” said Joseph D. “J.D.” Winteregg a Troy, Ohio schoolteacher and first-time congressional candidate in the 2014 GOP primary. Boehner, who Winteregg said he criticizes for being a Republican leader complicit with Democrat Party demands, has been a member of the House of Representatives for 29 years...

    Mr. Lewis said there was one particularly moving exchange with the president that he wished he could have described in greater detail. But the White House nixed the idea, perhaps wary of having the commander in chief described as in tears. Mr. Lewis declined to delve into too much detail because he said he did not want to violate the ground rules he agreed to, but he did offer that the president explained to him how the job exacts a heavy emotional toll.

Mr. Kruger’s wad of tissues emphasized the humiliation of the moment. But his defense-table crying was...

    Marine Sgt. Garrett A. Misener's family will not be able to travel to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware tonight -- when his body is expected to return to the U.S. -- because of the blizzard that struck the East Coast and forced airlines to cancel flights nationwide.

Misener, a 25-year-old Marine squad leader, died in the early morning hours Monday in Afghanistan, fatally wounded by an improvised explosive device while on patrol in Helmand province, according to his family and the...

The moment capped an emotional morning at Thursday's on-base memorial for Tech. Sgt. Michael Flores, 32, a...

    WELLINGTON (AFP) - Scientists in New Zealand and Japan have created a "tear-free" onion using biotechnology to switch off the gene behind the enzyme that makes us cry, one of the leading researchers said Friday. The discovery could signal an end to one of cooking's eternal puzzles: why does cutting up a simple onion sting the eyes and trigger teardrops? The research institute in New Zealand, Crop and Food, used gene-silencing technology to make the breakthrough which it hopes could lead to a prototype onion hitting the market in a decade's time. Colin Eady, the institute's senior scientist, said the...

    Even as it is being digested on its way to becoming conventional wisdom, the emerging narrative of the New Hampshire Democratic primary offers a profoundly distressing scenario.

Forget her intelligence, her long career, her hard work, her positions and even the quality of her opponents. None of that mattered after the briefest sign of waterworks. Instantly, large numbers of female voters seemed to have put aside their reservations and rushed to support her. It is a breathtaking development in the glorious history of women's...

    Don’t let the “Comeback Gal” spin fool you. Despite the unexpectedly close finish in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton’s campaign remains in a tailspin... You can’t fake a core. You can’t fake charm. And you can’t fake humility. Mannequin Hillary tried during the ABC News debate in New Hampshire over the weekend when questioned about her likeability. “Well, that hurts my feelings,” she coyly purred in attempted mock self-effacement. One problem: The Clintons are too steeped in the politics of self-entitlement to pull off credible self-effacement. Seated next to a rival who has stolen her liberal thunder and who might make...

No church, denomination, or mission board that he approached would back him, so he determined to go forth on his own. He told God that though man would not back him, he was going to obey God and let God provide. God did indeed provide him with the means to go around the world and he...
