President Obama won a big victory for his trade agenda Friday with the Senate’s approval of fast-track legislation that could make it easier for him to complete a wide-ranging trade deal that would include 11 Pacific Rim nations. A coalition of nearly 50 Senate Republicans and more than 10 Democrats voted for Trade Promotion Authority late Friday, sending the legislation to the House for a difficult fight as Obama faces more entrenched opposition from Democrats. The Senate coalition fought off several attempts by opponents to undermine the legislation, defeating amendments that were politically popular but potentially poisonous to Obama’s bid to

Dublin, Ireland -Same-sex couples will soon be able to walk down the aisle in the Emerald Isle. Ireland became the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage through a popular vote on Saturday -- and what a popular vote "yes" was in the landmark referendum that will change the nation´s constitution. With votes tallied from nearly all of Ireland´s 43 parliamentary constituencies, the measure will sail through with more than 60% of voters approving, according to official results. Roscommon-South Leitrim, a rural section in the middle of the country, was the lone constituency not to approve the measure. More

The militant group ISIS is committing a “staggering array of atrocities” against women as it captures more territory in Iraq and Syria, according to a senior U.N. official tasked with investigating sexual violence in conflict. Women in ISIS strongholds are routinely raped, tortured, enslaved, and murdered by the Islamic extremists, who have made the brutalization of females a central element of their ideology, according to Zainab Hawa Bangura. The U.N’s Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict this week spoke with Middle East Eye about her recent tour of refugee camps across the region, where she interviewed

Speaking today at a Washington, D.C. synagogue, President Obama called himself an "honorary member of the tribe." "Earlier this week, I was actually interviewed by one of your members, Jeff Holdberg. And Jeff reminded me that he once called me the first Jewish president," Obama said to light laughter. "Now, since some people still seem to be wondering about my faith -- I should make clear this was an honorary title, but I as flattered. And as an honorary member of the tribe, not to mention somebody whe´s hosted seven White House seders ... and been advised by two Jewish chiefs

Media giant Matt Drudge blasted Republican leadership on Twitter Friday night after the GOP-led Senate approved a new free trade bill. “Twisted DC: Electing Republicans is guarantee of More powers for Obama… of course none of them read ‘secret’ bill!” Mr. Drudge tweeted. The Drudge Report founder slammed House Speaker John Boehner who expressed support for the bill after it passed the Senate. “Disrespect for voters is staggering. Boehner will not make public ‘most important’ trade deal in history? Hides behind ‘classified’ status..,” Mr. Drudge tweeted. “Boehner: We have to pass the bill so that you can

The State Department released close to 900 pages of emails from Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary on Friday, providing a detailed looked at how an embattled agency responded to terrorist attacks in Benghazi and how Clinton, the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic nomination for president, deals with her inner circle of advisers and well-wishers.POLITICO read the documents to find the most insightful and telling emails. There are deadly serious moments — Clinton learning of the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, for instance — and light-hearted ones, as when she jokes about her concussion.

Jorge Ramos, the influential host of Univision´s Noticiero Univision, said the Latino vote will decide the 2016 presidential election and that Hispanics could see a reward for providing the margin of victory. In an interview with Harvard University´s Institute of Politics following a speech to students, Ramos predicted that about 16 million Hispanics will go to the polls, likely to vote Democratic based on past trends. He said that there is a "new rule" in politics — winning the White House can´t be done without Hispanics.” And since he believes Latinos will supply the winner with a victory, "for the first

Wrapping up a segment dealing with fresh revelations from newly-released Hillary Clinton emails pertaining to Benghazi, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews on Thursday night dutifully spun that Hillary´s "secretive" nature was not a drawback but may in fact be a net positive, comparing her to "secretive" and "manipulative" FDR, who, in Matthews´s estimation, was America´s best president of the 20th century, if not the entire history of the Republic. Here´s the relevant transcript. MSNBC- Hardball-May 21, 2015-7:24 p.m. Eastern -CHRIS MATTHEWS: I think that [Bloomberg TV] focus group is fascinating.

Dublin, Ireland - Early indications are that Ireland has voted in favor of same-sex marriage, Irish media reported Saturday, as the process of counting votes in the landmark referendum continues. If passed, it would make Ireland the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage through a popular vote. The Irish Times newspaper said turnout in Dublin was as high as 65%, raising the hopes of "yes" campaigners that high engagement by young voters and those in urban areas could carry the result their way. There was speculation that opposition to the measure might have been understated in the run-up to the poll because

Eleven days ago, President Obama took the opportunity at Georgetown University to defend the government’s 50-year experiment in anti-poverty welfare programs. The president claimed: It is a mistake for us to suggest that somehow every effort we make has failed and we are powerless to address poverty. That’s just not true. First of all, just in absolute terms, the poverty rate, when you take into account tax and transfer programs, has been reduced about 40 percent since 1967. The president assumes that after spending $22 trillion (in inflation-adjusted dollars) on federal and state anti-poverty programs since the

PORTLAND, Ore. - An Oregon medical marijuana patient who was badly burned in an explosion while he was legally using butane as a solvent to make hash oil is suing the makers and sellers of the fuel. Kevin Tveisme, 28, of Portland, was injured in 2013 when his furnace clicked on, igniting butane vapor. The explosion destroyed his garage and injured a friend, Joseph Westom, who died 18 days later. (Snip) Although the butane canisters had a “flammable” marking, the lawsuit says, the butane should have come with stickers and instructional brochures specifically warning of the volatility of the butane’s
