Former Washington Mayor Marion Barry is dead, according to a United Medical Center spokeswoman. He was 78. Barry is perhaps best known for his arrest in 1990 after a televised police surveillance tape showed him smoking crack in a hotel room. He was sentenced to six months in prison after a possession conviction.

Kohn: Hey, what about all

CNN contributor Sally Kohn has a bone to pick with all of you racists. Apparently unsatisfied with the unbelievably favorable coverage which Ferguson’s “peaceful protesters” have been receiving in the media, Kohn seeks to draw a comparison – while assuring us it’s not a comparison – between the months of riots, shootings, arson and assault in Missouri and (wait for it…) a pumpkin festival in New Hampshire. Where’s the outrage about all of these out of control white people? When black people protest against police violence in Ferguson, Missouri, they’re thought of as a “mob.” But when white people got

Juan Williams: ‘Insulting to

Fox’s Eric Bolling went after Al Sharpton today for his tax issues that have somehow not stopped his White House invitations. Juan Williams agreed and went so far as to say it’s “insulting to black people” for the White House to be elevating Sharpton like that. Williams suspected that the Obama White House just doesn’t like Jesse Jackson and since Sharpton is the only big alternative, the White House just “anointed him as their official black leader,” which people find insulting. Bolling found some extreme irony in how Sharpton owes millions in taxes, but was helping President Obama pick the new

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto hailed US President Barack Obama´s sweeping steps on immigration, saying they were “most important measures taken in several decades” and would allow families to stay together. Obama´s plan, unveiled on Thursday, eases the threat of deportation for some 4.7 million immigrants, many of them Mexican, who are in the United States without legal documents. “I want to publicly recognize the President of the United States for yesterday´s announcement,” Peña Nieto told a conference in Mexico. “These measures bring relief to principally Mexican immigrants.”

ST. LOUIS — A Missouri grand jury has been hearing evidence for months as it weighs whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of Michael Brown, which was followed by sometimes violent protests. Some answers to common questions about the grand jury: Q: What is the grand jury deciding? A: The grand jury is considering whether there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime and, if so, what that charge should be. If the jury issues an indictment, a separate jury will be selected to decide whether the person is guilty. Q: When will they make a decision?

Opera Of the Redskins

Once upon a time, the Redskins were a bedrock franchise of the N.F.L., a perennial playoff team and a winner of three Super Bowls. The paranoiac coach George Allen took calls from the paranoiac president Richard Nixon, who even drew up a few plays for the team. Quarterbacks Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, Billy Kilmer and Doug Williams piled up wins. Many years, all that Republicans and Democrats could agree upon was their passion for this team. That feels as if it happened in 1014 B.C. Now, the Washington Redskins play like a comic opera, one that was years in the making and

WASHINGTON — The most serious challenge to President Obama´s health care law since it survived the Supreme Court by a single vote in 2012 isn´t a balky website, public opinion or the Republican takeover of Congress. It´s the Supreme Court — again. In a case likely to be heard in March and decided in June, the justices will dissect the meaning of four words on page 95 of the 906-page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — four words that could render health insurance premiums unaffordable for millions of Americans. Here´s a look at the issues in King v. Burwell:



Kasich’s immigration views ‘evolved’

BOCA RATON, Fla. — A little more than four years ago, John Kasich told The Dispatch, “One thing that I don’t want to reward is illegal immigration.” He called for a comprehensive federal immigration law protecting America’s borders. And he reiterated his longtime support for amending the U.S. Constitution to end birthright citizenship for children born here to illegal immigrants. But now, as his fellow Republican governors loudly voice many of the same sentiments, Kasich is urging them to ratchet down the rhetoric and try to work with President Barack Obama to solve one of the nation’s longstanding vexing problems.

The latest report from the nuclear negotiations with Iran indicates that they are likely to be extended.

A handful of Senate Democrats are publicly expressing disapproval of the president´s executive action on immigration, but it´s not yet clear that any of them are willing to do anything to stop him. "Our immigration system is broken, and I support a comprehensive plan to fix it, but executive orders aren’t the way to do it," Missouri senator Claire McCaskill said in a statement issued late Friday afternoon. "I am as frustrated as anyone that Congres is not doing its job, but the President shouldn´t make such significant policy changes on his own," Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana said in

Rep.

Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steven K.

Americans are inveterate tinkerers — a trait commented on by observers from de Tocqueville to Winston Churchill. That’s why it’s not surprising that the bureaucrats at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would want to keep tweaking Obamacare. (Snip) The geniuses who brought us the dysfunctional website healthcare.gov, are in a panic because just about every Obamacare policy is going up in price. So rather than having American citizens deal with such unpleasantness, our intrepid bureaucrats have hit upon a brilliant scheme; why not change the auto-renewal rules of Obamacare premiums by automatically shifting a

WASHINGTON — The admiral fired last year as No. 2 commander of U.S. nuclear forces may have made his own counterfeit $500 poker chips with paint and stickers to feed a gambling habit that eventually saw him banned from an entire network of casinos, according to a criminal investigative report obtained by The Associated Press. Although Rear Adm. Timothy M. Giardina's removal as deputy head of U.S. Strategic Command was announced last year, evidence of his possible role in manufacturing the counterfeit chips has not previously been revealed.

Just when you thought no one could possibly be worse than Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), you remember there is always Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). Fifty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters have an unfavorable opinion of Pelosi, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll. What’s more, a whopping 41 percent have a “very unfavorable” view of the Maryland native. What is there not to like about Pelosi? After all, Planned Parenthood awarded her with its “highest recognition of leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions” for her work in support of abortion. Of course, being a “Catholic” the Catholic Church ruled that she

A research team conducting a dive in Monterey Bay off the coast of California have captured first-ever video of a rarely-seen denizen of the deep called the black seadevil. The creature was spotted this week in the dark, deep waters 1,900 feet below the surface by researchers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. "We´ve been diving out here in the Monterey Canyon regularly for 25 years, and we´ve seen three," MBARI Senior Scientist Bruce Robinson told the San Jose Mercury News Friday.

Obama, the retired New York Yankees shortstop and two Las Vegas businessmen were playing golf at Shadow Creek, which describes itself as a "masterpiece" course "sculpted from the Nevada desert by renowned architect Tom Fazio." "Once the domain of only a privileged few, the natural splendor of this monument to the imagination and classic golf course design stands today ready to be shared," the website says.

The grand jury investigating the killing of Michael Brown by Ferguson, Mo., police Officer Darren Wilson is not meetinging this weekend and will reconvene Monday, sources told ABC News. Speculation that a decision on whether to indict Wilson in the shooting was coming soon has increased tensions in a town that already was on edge. Federal, state and county officials have been ramping up their readiness in case there is a fresh wave of angry and, at times, violent protests over the jury´s decision. Protesters have been demanding that Wilson be charged with murder for the Aug. 9 shooting of

President Obama is an Alinskyite.? That assertion is not an epithet — well, not primarily. True, I would not describe someone I admired as an “Alinskyite.” Saul Alinsky was a loathsome figure — a radical statist who whose toxic brew of thoroughgoing deceit and brass-knuckles extortion (“direct action”) has become a part of mainstream politics. But in tying the president to the seminal community organizer whose theories and tactics so influenced him, my purpose is more to decode than to insult him. Of course, calling Obama an “Alinskyite” draws cataracts of condemnation from the Democrat-media complex — for the same

Dear Reader (including those of you in the shadows), Like a cannibal in a coma ward, I have no idea where to begin. It is always remarkable to me — which is why I am remarking upon it — how the only way this president can be rescued from a bad news cycle is if an even worse one comes along. This is a source of frustration for many on the right who get outraged by the fact that “we” don’t talk enough about Fast & Furious or Benghazi or the IRS scandal or the VA scandal or Ukraine/Syria/Islamic State/China/Libya/Gitmo

CORPUS CHRISTI - What if they get us? It’s a question Martina Martinez has asked herself during her time living in three states, and now Corpus Christi, as she worked in restaurants and cleaning houses. The fear had been there since she came to the United States from a town in the Central Mexico state of Guanajuato 12 years ago. Life was miserable there, she said, hard to make ends meet. So Martinez walked north for days until she reached the Rio Grande, crossed the river near Eagle Pass, and kept walking. She’s now a stay-at-home mom of three children,

NBC´s Chuck Todd on Thursday night found a new way to compliment Barack Obama. Politicking host Larry King asked the Meet the Press anchor if he "liked" the President. Todd quickly responded "yes" and added, "I mean, he´s very easy to talk to...You sit there and have these off-the-record sessions with him." The journalist enthused, "They´re just very nourishing conversations." [MP3 audio here.] Nourishing? Earlier in November, the anchor defended the President´s famous contention that "bitter Americans" "cling" to guns and religion. Todd mused that these attacks are simply Obama "observing the way an anthropologist would observe a society." In

For many people, autumn means the crunch of leaves and the roasting of chestnuts and sharp air about the nose. For me, it means one thing: sex. I oversee the Bad Sex in Fiction Award for the London-based Literary Review, which has been handing out this annual distinction since 1993. This year’s laureate will be crowned in early December. The prize was inaugurated when the late Auberon Waugh, son of Evelyn and editor of the magazine, noticed a pattern in many new novels: sex scenes that did nothing to develop plot or character and whose inclusion, he suspected, was the result
