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

Planned Parenthood Funding
Could Dominate the Next
Government Shutdown Debate

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.

A political adviser of Joe Biden has revealed is ´90 percent in´ when it comes for his decision to run against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. Biden’s advisers told ABC News that ´his political team has been ramping up in recent days, entering what they call a more active phase´, according to the program This Week. ´In camp Biden, there are discussions about fundraising and launching a political action committee, and while the vice president himself hasn´t authorized any of these moves, one adviser tells ABC News he believes Biden is 90 percent in,´ Cecilia Vega reported Sunday.

New York, NY- Hillary Clinton´s first television ads will hit the airwaves this week, presenting the Democratic candidate for president as a lifelong fighter for children and families. The 60-second spots will run in Iowa and New Hampshire for five weeks starting Tuesday. In Iowa, the ads will run in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids, the state´s two largest media markets, and in New Hampshire, the ads will be seen statewide. The price tag: $1 million in each state. Clinton´s first ad buy goes on the air just days after new reports suggested that Vice President Joe Biden is seriously considering

Chuck Schumer is getting an earful from opponents of the Iran nuclear deal. More than 10,000 phone calls have flooded his office line the past two weeks, organized by a group looking to kill the deal. Another group has dropped seven figures on TV in New York City to pressure Schumer and other lawmakers to vote against the plan. The powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee has put its muscle behind an effort to lobby the New Yorker against it. And Dov Hikind, a state assemblyman from Brooklyn, was arrested for disorderly conduct while protesting the deal outside Schumer’s office.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton on Sunday quickly jumped aboard President Obama’s plan to impose stricter limits on emissions from power plants, vowing to be a third term of the Obama administration when it comes to fighting climate change. “It’s a good plan, and as president, I’d defend it,” Mrs. Clinton said in a statement. The former first lady, senator and secretary of state has adopted an aggressive stance on climate change and used the issue to rally liberal voters against her Republican rivals. “It will need defending, because Republican doubters and defeatists — including every Republican

President Obama argues that his policies will result in cleaner air and will mitigate the effects of climate change, but unintended consequences of the administration’s environmental agenda seem all but certain — possibly even including higher mortality rates across the country, according to at least one scholar. Key pieces of Mr. Obama’s environmental plan, including proposals to increase ozone standards, limit carbon emissions from power plants and continue mandating more ethanol in U.S. gasoline supplies, will bring with them serious side effects in the coming months and years, critics and some analysts say.

DANA POINT, Calif. —Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch on Sunday compared the efforts of his political network to the fight for civil rights and other “freedom movements,” part of a growing effort by the organization to emphasize its commitment to the plight of the disenfranchised. During remarks to 450 wealthy conservatives assembled in the ballroom of a lavish oceanfront resort, Koch urged his fellow donors to follow the lead of figures such as Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. “Look at the American revolution, the anti-slavery movement, the women’s suffrage movement,

The obvious problem when trying to rank the 10 people most likely to wind up as the Republican presidential nominee next year can be summed up in two words: Donald Trump. On one hand, Trump is ahead in most national polls on the nominating contest — an NBC-Wall Street Journal poll out Sunday puts him at 19 percent, four points clear of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — and he even leads (or comes close to leading) in surveys conducted in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire. On the other hand, he is Donald Trump. I put the question

Four weeks before the official rollout, the news for President Obama’s signature regulation on climate change suddenly went from bad to abysmal. Already, the Senate’s top Republican was urging a nationwide boycott of the carbon-cutting proposal known as the Clean Power Plan. Fourteen states had joined in a lawsuit seeking to block the rule even before it became final. Then came a blow from the Supreme Court: a surprise June 29 decision blocking the White House’s previous attempt at curbing pollution from coal-burning power plants. By July 7, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency was testily deflecting questions

LOWER LAKE — Wildfires blazing in several Western states Sunday chewed up forests and threatened homes but were most numerous in Northern California where dozens are raging and setting off evacuations. Wildfires are also burning in Washington and Oregon. The biggest California wildfire — the Rocky Fire, raging in the Lower Lake area in Lake County — spread overnight to cover even more drought-stricken ground, expanding more than 30 square miles in four or five hours, said Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott. The fast-moving blaze had charred 71 square miles by Sunday, an area much bigger than San Francisco´s 49 square

DANA POINT, Calif.— Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch warned America is "done for" if the conservative donors and politicians he gathered at a retreat over the weekend don´t rally others to their cause of demanding a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Donald Trump has said that he pays as little tax as possible - because he hates the way the government uses the cash he hands over. The Republican frontrunner, who claims to be worth in excess of $10billion, said he ´fight[s] like hell´ to minimize his bill, and that ´that´s the way you are supposed to do it´. His statement comes after Hillary Clinton revealed that she pays around 40 per cent of her total income in taxes, and in a political climate where many criticize big business for trying to minimize its contributions to state coffers.

Ahead of the first major debate among Republican presidential candidates Thursday, the rhetoric isn’t so much about the most important policy issues as it is about the rules of the debate itself. That’s largely because of the 17 contenders, only 10 will make the prime-time cut, relegating candidates with low poll rankings to a second-tier event that won’t get nearly as much attention. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who will likely be consigned to the auxiliary debate, criticized the rules during an appearance on ABC’s This Week as “pretty arbitrary.” He said the system is giving media outlets, including Fox,

Jeff Sessions (R-AL), concerning America’s ongoing policy of massive legal immigration: The overwhelming majority of immigration to the United States is the result of our visa policies. Each year, millions of visas are issued to temporary workers, foreign students, refugees, asylees, and permanent immigrants for admission into the United States. The lion’s share of these visas are for lesser-skilled and lower-paid workers and their dependents who, because they are here on work-authorized visas, are added directly

Ever since Edmund Burke, founder of the conservative tradition, declared, “The very idea of the fabrication of a new government, is enough to fill us with disgust and horror,” pundits and scholars have divided the political world along the axis of time. The left is the party of the future; the right, the party of the past. Liberals believe in progress and the new; conservatives, in tradition and the old. Hope versus history, morrow versus memory, utopia versus reality: these are the stuff of our great debates. In “The Reactionary Mind,” I argued that this view of the political divide

WASHINGTON — In the strongest action ever taken in the United States to combat climate change, President Obama will unveil on Monday a set of environmental regulations devised to sharply cut planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions from the nation’s power plants and ultimately transform America’s electricity industry. The rules are the final, tougher versions of proposed regulations that the Environmental Protection Agency announced in 2012 and 2014. If they withstand the expected legal challenges, the regulations will set in motion sweeping policy changes that could shut down hundreds of coal-fired power plants, freeze construction of new coal plants and create a

Meanwhile Zimbabwe, where people are living under a dictatorship, where the poverty rate is 72%, 15% of the population has HIV and 2 million people are facing starvation, doesn´t care about Cecil. As social media exploded with outrage this week at the killing of Cecil the lion, the untimely passing of the celebrated predator at the hands of an American dentist went largely unnoticed in the animal´s native Zimbabwe.
