Jeb Bush, the newest front-runner among Republicans seeking their party´s 2016 presidential nomination, smoked marijuana in high school--an activity he describes as ´pretty common´ at the tony Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. He told The Boston Globe in an interview published ahead of Sunday´s edition that ´I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I was at Andover.´ Both activities were strictly forbidden at the time--and still are--and could have gotten him expelled. But ´it was pretty common,´ he insisted. It´s common for presidential hopefuls to ´dump´ unflattering news about themselves early in election cycles, in the hope that it will be considered

Do we really mean ‘never again’?

Amid the ritual expressions of regret and the pledges of “never again” on Tuesday’s 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a bitter irony was noted: Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe. With a vengeance. It has become routine. If the kosher-grocery massacre in Paris hadn’t happened in conjunction with Charlie Hebdo, how much worldwide notice would it have received? As little as did the murder of a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse. As little as did the terror attack that killed four at the Jewish Museum in Brussels. The rise of European anti-Semitism is, in

Mitt Romney closed the door on a third presidential bid Friday, the Washington Examiner has confirmed. Romney told supporters during a morning conference call that he plans to sit out the 2016 contest. The Republicans´ 2012 presidential nominee scrambled the budding GOP primary campaign in early January when he signaled to campaign contributors and backers of his past campaigns that he was considering another run at the White House. Romney asked them to hold off from joining other campaigns while he took time to make a decision. Romney´s decision to bow out could set off a flurry of moves by

Michael Moore has confirmed that Clint Eastwood had previously threatened his life as the fallout between the pair continues after the filmmaker criticized the director´s movie, American Sniper. Writing on his Facebook page, the documentary maker said Eastwood made the comments in January 2005 - ´10 years ago this week´ at the National Board of Review Awards dinner. Moore said Eastwood announced ´to me and to the crowd that he would ´kill´ me if I ever came to his house with my camera for an interview. ´I´ll kill you,´ he declared.´ At the time Eastwood was being honored for his film Million Dollar Baby.

Sarah Palin: how the Republicans finally
gave up on their bizarre former candidate

Even by Sarah Palin´s standards, the speech was a bit bizarre. Speaking to a gathering of conservative activists in Iowa, the one-time governor of Alaska had this to say:(snip for video)As the late-night comic Jon Stewart put it: "Her subjects stopped talking to her verbs." (It also appears her teleprompter broke.) But the speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit last week appears to be more than just a laugh line for big city liberals who never liked Mrs Palin anyway. Even among the conservative base, the very people who lifted Mrs Palin up as the matron saint of the Tea Party, there was

Foreign Policy: Soon after President Obama announced plans to normalize relations with Cuba, Sen. Marco Rubio called him the worst negotiator since Jimmy Carter. Cuban officials are now proving Rubio right. As soon as Obama made his announcement, it became clear he´d pretty much given up the store and gotten nothing in return. Cuba didn´t have to make any concessions on freedom of speech, democratic elections, a market economy. It didn´t have to turn over U.S. fugitives, including a convicted cop killer, whom it´s been protecting for years. Indeed, as we noted in this space after Obama´s announcement, Raul Castro was soon bragging

WASHINGTON – Democrats in the House of Representatives are suggesting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu postpone his speech to a joint session of Congress until after the Israeli election on March 17. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said it was “not appropriate” for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to invite Netanyahu without first notifying the White House – a move that angered the Obama administration. Netanyahu is expected to advocate for a different policy on Iran that the president has thus far pursued. “Such a presentation could send the wrong message in terms of giving diplomacy a chance,” Pelosi said.
