Biden is Likely To Run
Boston Herald, by Kimberly Atkins    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden is leaning strongly toward a 2016 presidential bid, a source close to the vice president tells the Herald — news that is spurring excitement among top Democrats in Massachusetts and early voting states who are worried about front-runner Hillary Clinton’s hefty political baggage and sagging poll numbers. An adviser close to Biden, who is familiar with the vice president’s exploration process, told the Herald that Biden will “more likely than not” jump into the 2016 race. A request for comment from Biden’s White House office was not returned yesterday. The news of Biden’s renewed campaign activity over the

Former neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson discussed the Iran nuclear deal, immigration and amnesty, the "black lives matter" movement and Trump´s candidacy in an interview on "Meet the Press" Sunday. Calling the Iran deal "perhaps the worst deal in the history of America," Carson said he would get rid of it on day one as president because the deal does not have any verification, accountability or enforcement, the markers of a good deal. "We don´t have any of those things in any reasonable way here," said Carson, criticizing the U.S. for allowing Iran to obtain ballistic missiles

A pickup truck driver intentionally slammed into as many as 40 vehicles, including police cruisers, before officers shot him dead, authorities said. Cops chased the 63-year-old for about 30 minutes early Sunday morning, finally surrounding the Toyota Tundra in a parking lot, according to reports. The driver rammed police cars in front of him and behind him as they tried to pen him in, police said. “He was given verbal commands again, which he ignored,” police spokesman Victor Senties told Click2Houston. “At that point, obviously fearing for their lives and that of their fellow officers, we had two HPD officers that actually discharged

August got off to a bloody start across the city, with three people killed and another 19 wounded in shootings, including nine people hit by gunfire at a Brooklyn house party early Sunday, officials said. The first fatality of the weekend was Donnell Smith, 24, who police said was hit with multiple bullets to the torso in a hallway of a Flatlands housing project at around 1:40 a.m. Saturday. On Sunday at around 1:30 a.m., Christian Garcia, 20, was fatally shot in the chest when a gunman opened fire at Space Time Playground in Soundview, the Bronx. A 24-year-old man

Authentic Biden Vs. Hillary’s Mystery

Who Clinton really is remains a mystery. With Joe Biden, what you see is what you get. He was a wonderfully gifted young man, only 25 years old, a lieutenant in the Marine Corps headed to Afghanistan in the summer of 2012 when he died suddenly of a seizure in Washington D.C., just days ahead of his departure to our longest war. His funeral Mass was suffocating in its sadness. His loss left a hole in the heart of his family that cannot ever be filled by the passage of time. A friend mentioned the young Marine’s death to the Vice President

(Video) Update: Taco Bell has fired an employee that left an insensitive remark on an order of an officer and his fiancé. The company apologizes for the worker’s behavior and says they’re moving forward to correct the situation. Jeff Graves, senior director of operations for Taco Bell, said the worker was let go from the job. The worker wrote “PIG” on to-go orders for the couple Saturday night in Newton. “We do not share the same belief or view as the employee whatsoever,” Graves said. “Our company, Taco Bell, has always been pro-law enforcement, military. We’ve always supported the police

Two cheers for less homeownership
Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial    Original Article

Mortgage interest rates remain near record lows today. So does the rate of home ownership, which hit 63.4 percent in July, a 35-year low. Some people may find this incongruous, even disappointing. They shouldn´t. It´s a sign that a lot of people learned from the recent financial crisis, even if their government still seems perplexed by what happened. The prime mover in the broader financial crisis was the housing bubble, which was in large part the fruit of a policy, carried by two consecutive presidential administrations and by lawmakers on Capitol Hill, to encourage and subsidize home lending to unsuitable borrowers.

Hillary’s Two Races: To Keep Ahead of the

Hillary Clinton is running two races: one for president and one to keep information about her private e-mail server and activities as secretary of state from public view as long as possible, preferably until she is back in the White House in 2017. Last week, we learned more about the extent of the Clinton cover-up. Acting on a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch, federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee, cracked down on the delay tactics exercised in the effort to build a moat around her e-mails. He ordered Clinton and two of her closest aides, Huma Abedin and

Recently the Wall Street Journal reported that while nearly 99 percent of Syria’s 1,300 metric tons of chemical munitions declared in 2013 have been destroyed, stocks of undeclared agents remain—even more lethal than those declared. To anyone familiar with arms control compliance history this should come as no surprise whatsoever. Inspectors entered only sites the Assad regime designated, fearing that otherwise they would lose cooperation, and possibly even endanger their own safety. The result was predictable, writes Marissa Newman in the Times of Israel, citing the WSJ report: Because the regime was responsible for providing security, it had an effective veto over

A new Facebook profile photo is beginning to spread on the Internet, especially among members of the rising millennial generation. It’s a picture of a baby within the womb. Superimposed on the baby is an equal sign. Equal rights for the unborn. Now there’s an idea whose time has come. America is undergoing a major cultural shift in favor of life. While the abortion rate has been falling for more than 20 years, the trend is accelerating sharply; according to an Associated Press survey last month, the abortion rate dropped by 12 percent since 2010. The shift is seen most clearly when you

criminal investigation amid email

With U.S. intelligence officials scrambling to contain damage from potentially hundreds of spy agency secrets in Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails, questions are mounting over why the Justice Department has not yet opened a criminal investigation against the Democratic presidential front-runner for mishandling a mountain of classified information. While some secrecy experts believe Mrs. Clinton will be able to build a strong case that material on her server was not classified at the time it was moving through her emails, others assert that what the former secretary of state did was far more egregious than the mishandling of information that

For nearly two full terms, President Obama has made it abundantly clear that furthering the cause of his urban base — perhaps the most vital component of the coalition that swept him to power — is near the top of his lengthy and ambitious agenda. The list of advances made during the Obama administration — some complete, and some still in progress — is impressive. The president’s crowning achievement, the Affordable Care Act, has drastically increased access to health care among low-income and urban populations. President Obama’s dogged push for stricter gun laws has not abated even in the face of political

The history of the Clintons and The New York Times over the decades is like an airport baggage carousel — with a difference. New pieces keep barreling down the chute, but none of it ever seems to get removed. The week before last, another steamer trunk tumbled onto the crowded belt. A front-page article described Hillary Clinton as the subject of a request for a criminal inquiry into her email practices while she was secretary of state. After substantial revisions and corrections, the story was still newsworthy — but far less jaw-dropping: There had been a request for a Justice Department

STURGIS, S.D. — Never-before-seen crowds are expected to ride into the craggy, evergreen-dotted Black Hills of western South Dakota this week, all headed to the 75th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The rally is famous for bawdy behavior, with police busting hundreds each year for drunken driving and drugs, but authorities and bikers alike say there´s no indication there will be violence like that seen this spring among outlaw clubs in Waco, Texas, where a shootout left nine people dead and twice as many injured. Several law enforcement agencies with a presence at Sturgis said they haven´t received intelligence from officials nationwide that outlaw

The Marist Institute of Public Opinion has suspended its polling of the GOP primary field in protest of how polls are being used to determine debate participants. The poll, which is done in conjunction with McClatchy, is one of the more well-respected national polls regularly conducted. But Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute, told McClatchy that they’re suspending their poll for this week because the debate criteria assumes the polls are more precise than they are in reality. The group still polled on general election match-ups as well as likes and dislikes of the primary candidates, but not who

Try to imagine the shock of it: You’re walking along without a care in the world when suddenly, for no reason at all, a motorcycle cop roars up, hops off his bike, grabs you and slaps you in handcuffs, shoves you against a wall, and then writes you a ticket for something you didn’t do. And in a final gesture of contemptuous insult, he tosses your driver’s license in the gutter before making you sign the ticket. It must have been a harrowing experience. Or it would have been, if it had actually happened. Ted Rall is a writer and

ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio - In May, Murray Energy, which sits along the old National Pike here in eastern Ohio, told nearly 1,500 workers at five of its West Virginia mines that their jobs were eliminated. In Ohio, 249 Murray jobs were gone; nearly 170 employees were out of work in Illinois. The announcement wasn´t an isolated one. Mines are being boarded up and thousands of coal jobs are vanishing across America, in part because of competition from abundant natural gas but in larger part because of new federal regulations limiting carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants. One month later, Murray filed two lawsuits

A Veterans Affairs hospital in South Dakota has waited more than two months to notify 1,100 patients that files containing their Social Security numbers and other personal information were dumped in a trash bin. The Rapid City Journal reports that the data breach at the VA Hot Springs hospital took place in May, but it wasn´t until July 29 that anyone was notified. The paper said the breach was the most recent in a string of embarrassments that has engulfed the nation’s VA system over charges of doctored wait lists, poor care and wasteful spending.

A 9-year-old bat boy for a Kansas baseball team died Sunday, one day after he was accidentally struck by a bat during a game. Kaiser Carlile, the bat boy for the Liberal Bee Jays summer team in Liberal, Kansas, was struck in the head as a player took practice swings during Saturday’s game against the San Diego Waves. Carlile was wearing a helmet. He was hospitalized in critical condition after being struck by the bat. “With the permission of the family, and with much sorrow and a very broken heart, I regretfully inform everyone that Kaiser Carlile passed away earlier

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump, widely believed to be the wealthiest American ever to run for president, is nowhere among the ranks of the country´s most generous citizens, according to an Associated Press review of his financial records and other government filings. Trump has said he donated $102 million worth of cash and land to philanthropic and conservation organizations over the past five years. But his campaign has provided little documentation for most of these contributions, and tax filings of the Donald J. Trump foundation show Trump has made no charitable contributions to his own namesake nonprofit since 2008. Without an endowment,

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is mandating even steeper greenhouse gas cuts from U.S. power plants than previously expected, while granting states more time and broader options to comply. The tweaks to Obama´s unprecedented emissions limits on power plants, to be unveiled at the White House on Monday, aim to address a bevy of concerns raised by both environmentalist and the energy industry. The Environmental Protection Agency received more than 4 million public comments after Obama announced the proposed version last year, and opponents of the plan attempted unsuccessfully to stop it in Congress and in the courts.

NEW YORK – The Empire State Building, one of New York City’s best-known skyscrapers, was illuminated on Saturday night with pictures of animals in danger of extinction in an initiative to call attention to the situation of these and other species. Tigers, lions and whales were some of the animals whose images were made visible on the building’s outer walls thanks to a system of 40 powerful projectors installed on the roof of a nearby skyscraper. The project, staged by moviemaker and photographer Louie Psilhoyos and big-projection expert Travis Threlkel, seeks to call attention to the threat to numerous species and is

MIAMI – In his first Spanish-language television network interview since launching his 2016 presidential campaign, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush fielded questions ranging from the upcoming presidential debate to Donald Trump, from Latin American foreign policy to his favorite music, and whether he had ever experienced discrimination. Bush shared the experience his son George P. Bush, who is now 39, had when he and his Hispanic teammates traveled north to Ocala, Florida, to play in a baseball game. "George, he´s dark-skinned, and they spoke horrible things about those from Miami," Bush recalled, without offering details. "I had to explain ...

As experts on the Indian Ocean island Reunion studied plane debris for clues in the search for missing flight MH370, scientist Nicolas Villeneuve was making his own discovery: the island’s volcano was about to erupt. Reunion, a part of France that lies in the Indian Ocean around 370 miles east of Madagascar, gained newfound notoriety last week when a beach cleaner stumbled across a barnacled piece of an airplane wing known as a flaperon. The wreckage was flown on Friday to mainland France where experts hope forensic analysis will uncover if it was part of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which

Congress is in a month-long recess, but when it returns it will have just days to approve a spending plan to keep government open. That looming fight is very likely to turn on Planned Parenthood funding, with its half-a-billion yearly take from the federal Treasury. The current authority for government spending expires at the end of September. Without a new continuing resolution or enactment of appropriations bills, large parts of the government will shut down at the end of the month. When it returns from its August recess, Congress will have just 10 legislative days to approve a new spending blueprint.
