TEHRAN — Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated Sunday his desire to engage in direct talks with the U.S., on one condition. “Take your guns out of the face of the Iranian nation and I myself will negotiate with you,” he said at an event attended by tens of thousands of Iranians in Tehran’s Azadi Square. Ahmadinejad delivered his eighth and final annual speech to commemorate Iran’s 1979 revolution amid a range of challenges from his domestic opponents as well as international pressures, which have resulted in tough economic sanctions over the country’s nuclear program.

An infestation of tens of thousands of bed bugs has hospitalized a Kentucky homeowner after being literally eaten alive for more than a year in one of the worst cases exterminators have ever seen. Walking around Caleb and Debra Goins´ home in Frankfort, thousands of bed bugs are easily seen scurrying across walls, lampshades and falling out from holes in the sofa. ´This is one of the worst. I´ve seen others that are in line with it but this is about as bad as it gets,´ Michael Potter, professor of entomology at the University of Kentucky told WTVQ.

After weeks of anxiety plodding through the opaque Russian legal system, two U.S. women have custody of their adopted Russian children and are preparing to take them home to start a new life together. Jeana Bonner of South Jordan, Utah, and Rebecca Preece from Nampa, Idaho, told The Associated Press on Saturday about the expenses, the confusion and emotional swings they’ve gone through since arriving in Moscow in mid-January, expecting to quickly leave with their children, both of whom have Down syndrome.



Seven Days on the Queen Mary 2

The first rule about traveling between America and England aboard the Queen Mary 2, the flagship of the Cunard Line and the world’s largest ocean liner, is to never refer to your adventure as a cruise. You are, it is understood, making a crossing. The second rule is to refrain, when speaking to those who travel frequently on Cunard’s ships, from calling them regulars. The term of art — it is best pronounced while approximating Maggie Smith’s cut-glass accent on “Downton Abbey” — is Cunardists. The third rule, unspoken, is to not fling your Champagne flutes

Mark Sanford´s confessional campaign

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Mark Sanford’s bid for his old congressional seat is equal parts political campaign and confessional tour. The disgraced ex-South Carolina governor is back on the trail seeking forgiveness for the sins that caused his political career to collapse in spectacular fashion four years ago: The mysterious days-long disappearance, the lies about hiking the Appalachian Trail and the extramarital affair with an Argentine woman that splintered the Republican’s picture-perfect family and shattered his presidential aspirations. “I’m not in any way unaware of how I’ve let you down. I’m not in any way unaware

Alleged Los Angeles shooter Christopher Jordan Dorner, influenced by left-leaning media coverage of gun crime in the wake of the Newtown shootings, has virtually paralyzed the City of Angels. Floyd Lee Corkins, a gunman incensed by anti-gay marriage bias after reading articles by the liberal advocacy group Southern Poverty Law Center, took a firearm into the Family Research Council’s headquarters with the intention of killing “as many as possible.” He hoped to smash Chick-fil-A sandwiches in the faces of as many corpses as he could. These shooters were clearly moved by left-wing media, and we should thank every benevolent force

Distillers of a world famous bourbon has cut its alcohol content so it can meet increasing demand for the drink. The owners of Maker´s Mark, which is distilled Loretto, Kentucky, said they are unable to produce the bourbon fast enough. The plans became public after an email from Maker´s Mark executives Rob Samuels and Bill Samuels Jr, son of the company´s founder, emerged. It announced that the bourbon--which used the slogan ´It tastes expensive... and is´--will drop its alcohol content by there percent. It will now be reduced to 42 percent ABV from 45 percent.

WASHINGTON -- Marco Rubio is taking center stage as Republicans search for a new leader. In the nearly 100 days since President Barack Obama won a second term, the Florida senator has made calculated, concrete steps to emerge as a next-generation leader of a rudderless party, put a 21st-century stamp on the conservative movement and potentially position himself for a presidential run. The bilingual Cuban-American lawmaker has become Republicans´ point person on immigration and he pitches economic solutions for middle-class workers. He is an evangelist for a modern, inclusive party that welcomes more Hispanics and minorities,

Both captain and first officer had to don special oxygen masks to breathe, allowing them to make the emergency landing en route to Philadelphia from Heathrow last Sunday. They told passengers merely there had been a “technical fault” with the Boeing 777 but gave no other reason for the “pan pan” distress call. They landed in temperatures of -30C at Goose Bay in Newfoundland, the nearest airstrip to the coast and where passengers had to wait 10 hours on board for a replacement plane to arrive.

It´s not often one looks to the Guardian´s environment pages for an incisive and thorough critique of green propagandising. But hats off--really--to Leo Hickman for this ruthless deconstruction of an erroneous claim made by David Attenborough on his latest BBC nature documentary that in the last twenty years Africa has warmed by 3.5 degrees C. 3.5 degrees C in two decades? That would indeed be a remarkable temperature rise in anybody´s money. (Remember, since 1850 global mean temperatures have risen by about 0.8 degrees C--and we´re supposed to find that worrying and significant). Which is why, you might have thought

HARRISBURG - Gov. Bob McDonnell (R., Va.) was a blunt therapist Friday night, telling assembled Pennsylvania Republicans to quit whining. "The pity party should be over," McDonnell said to a crowd of about 300 at the Harrisburg Hilton. "It´s been two months." Since losing a presidential race they were convinced they would win, Republicans nationally have been going through an extended mourning-cum-autopsy process, trying to figure out what went wrong on a clinical track, while many indulge their frustration that President Obama was so easily reelected. "We could´ve won, we should´ve won, but we didn´t,"

If anyone can bring the nearly week-long manhunt for ex-LAPD murder suspect Chris Dorner, it has to be Charlie Sheen. The actor recorded a message to Dorner Saturday urging the fugitive to call him as soon as he gets a chance. Sheen was one of the many news personalities and celebrities mentioned in Dorner’s epic manifesto. His name appears in a single-sentence non sequitur towards the end of the document: “Charlie Sheen, you’re effin’ awesome.” In the video message, Sheen speaks directly to Dorner, saying, “You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words.”

While I was a conservative by age 12, for some time thereafter I viewed liberalism as most do -- as just another ideology. Sure, it was an irritating ideology, but an ideology nonetheless. But then something happened. I don´t quite remember if I was 20, 21, or 22, but some experiences in my life and much pondering of the issues and the human condition led to an insight. It hit me like a bolt of lightning: Liberalism is what evil is masquerading as in our time.

With Karl Rove under heavy fire after his group, the Conservative Victory Project, took to the pages of the New York Times to attack the Tea Party, donors are beginning to turn on the Project. Politico reports Friday morning that the Project will “essentially preform oppo research and grade potential candidates on a variety of factors that might affect their ability to win a general election contest.” Some donors are overjoyed at the opportunity, including media honcho Stan Hubbard and Fred Malek of the American Action Network. But others don’t trust Rove and the American Crossroads

A Perfect Contrast

Contrast can bring clarity. And I do not think that the two warring political ideologies in America have never been personified, juxtaposed, and as clearly defined as the contrast we witnessed at this week´s National Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Benjamin Carson, the famed director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, was given the unique opportunity to share his beliefs before a distinguished audience, including President Barack Obama. He did not waste the opportunity, and courageously expressed his beliefs with conviction, contrary though they are to those of the president.

Candidates for mayor of Los Angeles called Saturday for an investigation of allegations of LAPD racism that were made by a fugitive former police officer who is suspected of killing three people this week. Several said an investigation of the full circumstances surrounding the Police Department’s handling of fugitive Christopher Jordan Dorner was warranted. They spoke in response to a question on the matter at a candidates forum at Crenshaw High School. The department announced Saturday evening that it would reopen its investigation into its firing of Dorner, which apparently prompted his vengeful rampage.

The effort in Washington to pass immigration reform is headed for a potential showdown over border security – with the Senate and White House plans putting different emphasis on the issue, and Democrats and Republicans appearing to disagree over the extent of the problem. The likely conflict was highlighted last week when Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared U.S. borders secure and said Republicans have a flawed argument about border security needing to precede comprehensive immigration reform. "I believe the border is secure,” Napolitano said Monday in San Diego, during a three-day swing of the Southwest border.

Hey Gov. Patrick, didn’t your mother ever teach you about the magic word “please”? You know, you’d ask her for something, and she’d say, “What’s the magic word, Deval?” I guess she didn’t because I didn’t hear it Friday, when you ordered everyone in the state off the roads at 4 p.m. Like everyone else, I did hear about the $500 fine and/or one year in jail for violating your order, which you had said the previous day you probably weren’t going to issue. I know, the bow-tied bumkissers are already falling all over themselves

The Washington Post reports that Jack Lew, President Obama’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, held money in an investment fund registered in the very Cayman Islands building that Obama called a notorious haven for tax abuse. The address of the fund is a building called the Ugland House. Obama singled out that building in a 2009 speech against tax haven abuse. With his characteristic subtely, the president declared, “Either this is the largest building in the world or the largest tax scam in the world.” Obama’s screeds against holding money in off-shore funds aren’t limited to this occasion, of course.

CAIRO — A Cairo court on Saturday ordered the government to block access to the video-sharing website YouTube for 30 days for carrying an anti-Islam film that caused deadly riots across the world. Judge Hassouna Tawfiq ordered YouTube blocked for carrying the film, which he described as "offensive to Islam and the Prophet (Muhammad)." He made the ruling in the Egyptian capital where the first protests against the film erupted last September before spreading to more than 20 countries, killing more than 50 people. The ruling however can be appealed, and based on precedent, might not be enforced.

Ron Paul is feuding with his rabid fan own rabid fan base over the ownership of RonPaul.com. Paul wants it, but his fans own it. They´re willing to sell it to him... for a price Paul doesn´t agree with. So now he´s taken the dispute all the way to the United Nations. Paul was interviewed by Conservative radio show host Alex Jones at the beginning of January and said he wished he had control of RonPaul.com. It´s not an uncommon wish. Everyone wants to own theirname.com. The site was registered by his fans years ago, though it´s unclear

The Benghazi terrorist attack was a debacle in three distinct stages. The fatal mistakes occurred in the first two — the failure to provide adequate security before the attack and the failure to provide help once it started. Those mistakes were tragic, but the Obama administration’s explanations are coherent, though hardly defensible. The mystery always has been the third stage — the aftermath, or more accurately, the coverup. Even before the bodies of the four Americans came home, the White House was eager to tell any story except the real one. Aides twisted and turned to create the false narrative

The Gasparilla Pirate Fest is Tampa´s version of Mardi Gras. It´s perhaps the most eccentric — and politically incorrect — civic festival in the country. Every year, on the last Saturday in January, the men of Tampa, including those from the oldest, richest families, dress up as pirates and invade the harbor in "krewes," while the poorer civilians let themselves be invaded, at least symbolically. (Snip)At one point Jill Kelley called Tampa´s mayor, Bob Buckhorn, and requested "diplomatic protection" because she held the title of "honorary consul" for South Korea. (Since the title was honorary, the request was denied.)

The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution gave its name to the protection against self-incrimination, and it also contains three other famous (and these days somewhat battered) guarantees?—?against double jeopardy; against deprivation of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; and of just compensation when private property is taken for public use. But before any of these, in pride of place in the very first words of the amendment, comes perhaps the least thought-of protection in the whole Bill of Rights: the assurance that no one will be “held to answer” for a serious crime

The U.S. Postal Service´s decision to eliminate Saturday delivery could disproportionally hurt minority groups, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee. "You´re talking about just this reduction … from six days to five days will cut anywhere from 25,000 to 30,000 employees. And with regard to Asian, African-Americans, and Hispanics, they comprise about 40 percent of the Postal Service employees," Cummings told Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC Friday night. "So it´s logical to believe if they were to lose that 30,000 jobs, easily 40 percent of them would be African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans."

In his memoir Fear No Evil, Jewish Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky recounts the mind games the KGB played with him as they tried to entrap him in “confessions” of treason. What allowed Sharansky to survive was his ability to anticipate their moves in a game that began with transparent lies from his government, ones he recognized from kindergarten. This month, as evidenced by the release of a photo supposedly showing the president engaged in skeet-shooting, we have similar mind games being played by the Obama administration and with all the sophistication of junior high school intrigues. Sycophantic media,
