On Friday evening, Pennsylvania authorities arrested a Russian citizen for reportedly possessing a weapon of mass destruction. Police arrested Vladislav Miftakhov, a 19-year old who the Altoona Mirror reports is an engineering student at Penn State Altoona, after finding "a suspected bomb and other bomb-making materials inside a suitcase." They had originally gone to his residence to investigate reports that he was growing marijuana at his home. Miftakhov "is charged with possessing a weapon of mass destruction, risking a catastrophe, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possessing instruments of crime, prohibited offensive weapons, incendiary devices, recklessly endangering another person, possession

SAN DIEGO -- Tiger Woods is on the verge of suffering an unflattering career first -- missing a secondary cut on the PGA Tour. With a 7-over-par 79 on Saturday at the Farmers Insurance Open, the current world No. 1 nearly matched his worst career round as a pro when he shot 81 amid brutal weather conditions in the 2002 Open Championship at Muirfield. (Snip)Because the 36-hole cut this week included more than 78 players, by PGA Tour regulations another cut is made to reduce the field to the top 70 and ties through three rounds. When he finished his round,

Following in the footsteps of Barack Obama, Chris Christie, and of course Brian Williams, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney joined Jimmy Fallon for what could very well be the last “Slow Jam the News” session before the host leaves Late Night for the Tonight Show. The bit gave Romney a chance to simultaneously air his criticisms of President Obama’s second term and the continue the campaign to humanize himself after his 2012 loss. When he brought up the troubled Obamacare rollout with its website “glitches,” Fallon chimed in with, “Glitch, please.” The highlight of the whole thing came near

How about we get back to the big picture of what’s at stake with a Wendy Davis victory in November? The revelation of Wendy’s departure from truth in the accounts of her early life has spread across the country. Does that mean she has lost the media’s adoring obsession with her? Absolutely not. Watch now as they adopt her campaign strategy to cry foul, blame her opponent and accuse others of dirty tricks. They aren’t about to give up the best chance they’ve had to turn the state blue since Jimmy Carter.

Another day, another shooting at a public place in America… It could be an elementary school, a high school, a campus, a church, a Navy Yard, an airport, a Chicago street…doesn’t seem to matter anymore. It’s mourning in America again, this time in Columbia, Maryland…located about halfway between Baltimore and Washington, DC in suburban Maryland. All told, three are confirmed dead, including the shooter. Four are reported injured. We still don’t know if the two victims were targeted or randomly taken.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started a trend by making most of its high school students tackle algebra II. But eight years later, the state often watched for education policy is abandoning the requirement. The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

Michaels Stores Inc.

Michael Fox, a spokesman for Michaels, declined to say when the data-security attack may have occurred, when the company learned of it or how many customer accounts may be affected. He said the matter is being investigated and any new information will be posted on the company’s website. “While we have not confirmed a compromise to our system, we believe it is in the best interest of our customers

TRENTON, N.J.- The city whose Democratic mayor said GOP Gov. Chris Christie´s administration tied Superstorm Sandy aid to her support for a real estate project has, so far, received a level of aid from state-run programs that is similar to what other towns got, a review of grant data shows. Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer is no longer discussing her allegations that New Jersey´s second-largest city has been shortchanged on Sandy funds, that its aid is being held "hostage" as political leverage or that she feared further retribution in the next round of funding. But her spokesman, Juan Melli, said the

In a recent profile of John McCain, in the Times Magazine, Mark Leibovich writes: Friends of McCain’s say that his loss in ’08, and the ridicule he suffered in the wake of it, was traumatizing in itself. “John has had two defining events in his life,” Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma, told me. “The first was his imprisonment, and the second was his failure to win the presidency.” McCain was held in a North Vietnamese prison camp for more than five and a half years, undergoing torture and solitary confinement. Coburn is not equating that experience with an election loss—the

VERONA, N.Y. — The Oneida Indian leader from upstate New York who has become a high-profile critic of the Washington Redskins’ nickname is taking his case to the United Nations. The Oneida Indian Nation says Ray Halbritter will meet Friday with the Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights at U.N. headquarters in Manhattan. Halbritter argues that the Washington team’s nickname is racially insensitive and should be changed. The NFL team was already facing a fresh round of criticism when the Oneidas began airing radio advertisements during the NFL’s regular season critical of the nickname.

Attempting to reverse sagging approval ratings, President Obama plans to continue his pointed pitch to members of Congress in his annual State of the Union speech Tuesday night -- that he will use his executive power to take action on his own to help reduce income inequality in the country. White House communications aides have spent the past week saying Obama plans to hit this theme in the speech, and on Saturday they offered a bit more information. Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director, sent out an email Saturday to supporters saying Obama´s message Tuesday night can be summed up

The fact that Mayor de Blasio’s speech at the Manhattan meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee was unannounced is causing a stir this. There’s a terrific dispatch on it by one of the ferrets at the Times, Kate Taylor, formerly of the Sun. She reports that His Honor assured Aipac’s members that “part of my job description is to be a defender of Israel.” Ms. Taylor reports that the appearance, at the Hotel Hilton, “was not listed on the mayor’s public schedule” and that “a reporter who tried to attend was escorted away by the security staff.”

A couple of days ago, I counted the ways why I disliked President Obama following his recent interview with David Remnick of The New Yorker. In the interview, he attributed some of his unpopularity to racism. Dishonesty and disingenuousness are unbecoming a President and here’s another example from the same interview. Remnick follows Obama to a Democratic Party fundraiser at the home of former Microsoft President Jon Shirley near Seattle. He told donors, “I’m not a particularly ideological person.” He also went on to say, “There are reasonable conservatives and there are those who just want to burn down the

(Video) Eight people are dead and 24 are still unaccounted for after a fire ripped through an elderly community in Quebec on Thursday, officials confirmed Saturday. Search teams continued to comb ice-covered debris for the missing at the Residence du Havre in the small town of L´Isle-Verten, police said. Frigid temperatures have made search efforts difficult, as water used to fight the blaze froze, coating the collapsed three-story building in ice. "The ice in certain areas is as thick as 60 centimeters. We´re talking 2 feet," Guy LaPointe, with Surete du Quebec police, said. "So you can imaging how difficult

Obama´s efforts to help the long-term unemployed are part of an economic strategy he will lay out in his annual State of the Union address on Tuesday and expound upon during a four-state tour, Pfeiffer said in a mass e-mail from the White House.

The indictment of a major critic of the president has elicited little more than yawns from the media. This is a case where you don’t even have to connect the dots. Just read a little history: After news broke Thursday that federal prosecutors had charged conservative commentator, author, film-maker and professional Obama-basher Dinesh D’Souza with violating campaign finance laws, Walter Olson at the Overlawyered blog posted on the relatively mild civil sanction meted out to a “big-league trial lawyer” who’d done pretty much the same thing D’Souza is accused of. D’Souza has been indicted for allegedly paying $20,000 to reimburse

Obama Shifts from ´Income Inequality´

President Obama has already changed his vernacular concerning his second term focus of "income inequality." He is now calling it "ladders of opportunity." In an apparent effort to blunt criticism over his intent to engage in full-blown class warfare during his second term, Obama is softening the harsher term with a new label. The Associated Press reports that Obama has shifted his rhetoric from "complaining" about income inequality toward language that creates an appearance that he is offering support for the middle class. Since his December 4 economic speech where he used the word "inequality" 26 times, the word is

After the 2012 president election, it was clear that the Republican Party needed to take steps to give our presidential nominees a better chance at winning the White House. One of those steps is a shorter primary process. It’s my goal to have a convention in late June or early July. That way the nominee has access to general election resources earlier, allowing him or her to be more competitive against the Democrats’ nominee. It also means the media can’t over-hype a drawn-out fight among our candidates. But we did have to make sure that our primary voters would have

As bloodshed and nuclear menace mount in the Middle East, China and North Korea flex their military and nuclear muscles in Asia, and America retreats almost everywhere, how will history judge Barack Obama? Is he the wise Dwight D. Eisenhower who understood the limits of American power and used military might as an instrument of peace? Or the appeaser Neville Chamberlain, whose naivete accelerated Hitler’s rise and led to World War II? Neither analogy rings true. But there are others whose choices more closely mirror Obama -- and they do not inspire optimism about where we are going. Winston Churchill was said to
