Since the attack, my husband Rand Paul

The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain. He has not had a single night´s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing. (snip) It is incredibly hurtful that some news outlets (are) concocting theories about an "ongoing dispute," based on nothing more than speculation from an attention-seeking person with no knowledge of anything to do with us. The fact is, neither Rand nor I have spoken to the attacker in 10 years...

Archaeologists who have been searching Lake Van – the second largest lake in Turkey – for decades have discovered what they believe is a lost city. The castle is thought to be an Iron Age relic of the Urartu civilisation – also called the Kingdom of Van – which lived in the area from the 6th to the 9th century BC. The remarkable discovery was made by archaeologists from the Van Yüzüncü Yil University and a team of divers. Tahsin Ceylan, head of the diving team of the project, has been searching for the Lake Van Monster – a beast

Here’s a paradox that few people in the fawning green media seem to perceive: the more serious you think the problem of global warming may be in the future, the more farcical and unserious are the policy prescriptions of the “climate change community.” In fact I’ll go further: if perchance we do experience catastrophic, man-made global warming many decades from now, historians will look back and blame the environmental community for being the chief impediment to taking serious incremental action to reduce carbon emissions in a significant way—not the so-called “climate deniers.” Today’s wind and solar racket, and all of

Al Franken remains in hiding. He holds his silence. He is, uncharacteristically, biting his tongue, hoping to ride out the storm that has followed Leeann Tweeden’s story. Franken’s scandal represents a crossover between the world of show business in which he made his career and the world of politics in which he has sought to become a champion of the left. Here former Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone was his model. After Wellstone’s premature death in 2002, Minnesota Democrats proudly expressed their extravagant belief in Wellstone with the irreverent question What Would Wellstone Do? They can’t help but let us know that,

Second U.S. judge halts Trump´
proposed transgender military ban

Baltimore - Another federal judge has halted a proposed transgender military ban, expanding on an initial ruling issued last month against the plan by President Donald Trump´s administration. In a preliminary injunction issued Tuesday in Baltimore, U.S. District Judge Marvin Garbis ruled that transgender service members have "demonstrated that they are already suffering harmful consequences" due to the proposed ban including threat of discharge, stigma and the cancellation or delay of surgeries related to their gender transitions. The six plaintiffs in the lawsuit he reviewed have all been receiving hormone therapy.

Donald Trump has sustained more than his fair share of political losses during the first 10 months of his presidency, mostly at the hands of the federal courts. (Snip) But the makeup of America’s judges is quietly becoming the site of one of Trump’s most unequivocal successes: nominating and installing judges who reflect his own worldview at a speed and volume unseen in recent memory. Trump could conceivably have handpicked more than 30% of the nation’s federal judges before the end of his first term, his advisers have suggested, and independent observers agree. “The president himself has said that he expects this to be one of

Kudos to the Riverside County (California) District Attorney’s Office for bringing justice to a crime committed in the name of politics. Prosecutors have limited resources and a lot of crimes to prioritize. But political crime is a serious matter today. And the incident leading to the charges has already had tremendous visibility on conservative media (if not the MSM-yet) and in social media, thanks to YouTube. A Cause célèbre may be brewing, and that’s a good thing. (snip) By stealing the hat directly off the person of her victim, Macias opened the door to serious charges. There was talk of

Yes, Deficits Still Matter

There’s a lot not to like about the current Republican tax proposal, beginning with its effect on the debt, to which it will add about $1.3 trillion according to current estimates. It is becoming something of an unfortunate tradition in American politics that deficits only matter to the party out of power. Republicans wailed and moaned about the Obama-Pelosi-Reid deficits and, to their credit, reduced them when they came to power in Congress. But having whiffed on health-care reform and much else toward which they have turned their increasingly addled, muddled, and unample attention, they are desperate to pass some

A University of California, Riverside student could face jail time after she was seen in a now-viral video appearing to swipe a a "Make America Great Again" hat from a fellow Highlander. Edith Macias allegedly snatched Matthew Vitale’s MAGA hat before going on a bizarre, profanity-laced tirade in the video, shot by Vitale. The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office told Fox News that, if convicted, Macias faced a maximum sentence of up to one year in county jail. “I’m very excited that the DA’s office took it seriously,” Vitale told Fox News. “We can’t thank UCPD enough.” According to the criminal complaint, Macias is

Airbus is looking to develop autonomous aircraft and technologies that will allow a single pilot to operate commercial jetliners, helping cut costs for carriers, chief technology officer Paul Eremenko said. “The more disruptive approach is to say maybe we can reduce the crew needs for our future aircraft,” Mr Eremenko told Bloomberg Television. “We’re pursuing single-pilot operation as a potential option and a lot of the technologies needed to make that happen has also put us on the path towards unpiloted operation.” The aerospace industry has begun seeing a similar trend as the car market, where car makers are investing in or acquiring

FAIRBANKS —I have always supported the freedom to choose. I believe that the federal government should not force anyone to buy something they do not wish to buy in order to avoid being taxed. That is the fundamental reason why I opposed the Affordable Care Act from its inception and also why I cosponsored a bill to repeal the individual mandate tax penalty starting as early as 2013. And that is why I support the repeal of that tax today. Over the course of this year, the Senate has considered bills that would have repealed Medicaid expansion, completely transformed the

In an op-ed published Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, writes that she backs the Republican effort to repeal ObamaCare’s individual mandate, a position that might offer her party hope when it comes to the tax plan vote. Republican senators have said they intend on repealing the individual mandate requirement as part of their tax legislation. A spokesman for Murkowski told Politico that her column does not mean she supports the tax bill. “I have always supported the freedom to choose.

Charlie Rose. Al Franken. Kevin Spacey.Powerful men accused of sexual misconduct are dropping like flies, but there’s one prominent name missing from the list: Bill Clinton. It’s been two decades since Clinton’s impeachment trial, a trial he survived due to political support and Democrats standing by their man.Would Clinton survive today? That’s a question Clinton supporters need to come to terms with now.Back in the ’90s, Democrats chose to look the other way, despite Monica Lewinsky and disturbing accusations by other women.They enabled Clinton and helped keep him in office.But now that Clinton is 71,

To ask the question why liberals have been such hypocrites about their treatment of women and about women´s rights is not to say that conservatives haven´t been. They have. And some of their actions have been pretty bad. But by comparison, GOP hypocrisy in this area has been quite literally dwarfed by the Democrats. Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton are the most recent spiritual fathers of this atrocious behavior. Both extreme sexual predators -- Teddy to the extent of walking away from the corpse of Mary Jo Kopechne and other improprieties, Bill for, well, practically everything from rape to cigars --

Three military personnel have been reassigned from their White House jobs amid allegations that they had improper contact with foreign women while traveling with President Trump on his recent trip to Asia, according to officials familiar with the situation. The service members worked for the White House Communications Agency, a specialized military unit that helps provide the president, vice president, Secret Service and other officials with secure communications. The military is scrutinizing three Army noncommissioned officers who allegedly broke curfew during Trump’s trip to Vietnam this month, officials said.

As the sex scandals continue their relentless forward march, early efforts at a course correction are beginning to emerge. Some of these efforts are necessary and involve making distinctions — distinctions between, say, felonious assault, which should lead to prison, and really gross workplace behavior, which should lead to serious disciplinary action but should probably fall short of complete ruination. The danger, however, is that these distinctions get drawn in such a way that they protect one set of offenders and not the other — purely on the grounds that the protected set is made up of people you like or

He wrote a piece for the Washington Post: Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris agreement means other countries will spend less to fight climate change Wait a second. If carbon dioxide really were a threat to the planet, other countries would dig deeper in their pockets to pay for this. But according to Urpelainen, they will reduce their spending.
