Following the capture of Mexico´s richest and most dangerous drug lord on Saturday, questions are now being asked about the whereabouts of his 24-year-old beauty queen third wife who gave birth to two of his children in 2011. Joaquin ´El Chapo´ Guzman was nabbed in a U.S.-backed raid on a resort condo in Mazatlan, after his former bodyguards pointed Mexican officials to the elusive kingpin´s compound of seven homes in the Pacific coast town of Culiacan.

President Barack Obama naive on foreign policy? Perish the thought! CBS’s Bob Schieffer seemed appalled that Senator John McCain dared to describe Obama as the “most naive President in history.” On Sunday’s Face the Nation, Schieffer demanded: “Senator I want to ask you about something you said the other day, you said that President Obama, and I believe these are your words, ‘the most naive President in history.’ Did you mean that literally, or how did you mean that?” McCain responded on the February 23 program: I meant it in my time in public life, when you look at the so-called

Politico just doesn´t get it about conservatives. Again. The inside-the-beltway publication that keeps tabs on all of the "inside baseball" minutiae of Washington´s permanent political class does not understand why it is smart for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to oppose his party´s leadership, which he was elected by Texans to do. In previewing its newest magazine article about Cruz, Politico tweeted, "Ted Cruz is a smart political operator—so why does he pick so many fights with his party?" Erica Grieder, the article´s author and senior editor at the left-of-center Texas Monthly, displays, like most of the mainstream press, that she

"I´m just a trash man picking up trash," Jeremy Fischer told the reporter who had come to interview him about a gesture of kindness and respect he assumed no one saw. The Oregon garbage collector was going through his route, last Tuesday, when he saw that an American flag had been blown off its pole and was sprawled across a trash can. A former boy scout, Fischer carefully folded the flag up military style, and placed it on a post. Unbeknownst to him, a woman had watched the entire thing from her window, and posted what she saw on the

A mysterious polio-like syndrome has affected as many as 25 California children, leaving them with paralyzed limbs and little hope of recovery "What´s we´re seeing now is bad. The best-case scenario is complete loss of one limb, the worst is all four limbs, with respiratory insufficiency, as well. It´s like the old polio," said Keith Van Haren, a pediatric neurologist at Lucile Packard Children´s Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif. The first known case appeared in 2012. Sofia Jarvis in Berkeley began to experience wheezing and difficulty breathing. The 2-year-old spent days in the intensive care unit at Children´s Hospital Oakland.

"We have the order not to allow any loss of information whatsoever after the communication of the chancellor no longer being able to be directly monitored," Bild quoted an unnamed high-ranking US intelligence employee in Germany

The culture of corruption at the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corp. — alleged last week in a scathing 45-page report by the state comptroller — was apparently no secret to some in Newark’s political world. When queried by state investigators about payouts he received from the agency, one contractor said he was working on a local political campaign in 2008 and recalled the “buzz’ that had been circulating about NWCDC handing out contracts,” the report states. The contractor, Newark resident Edward McRae, discovered the buzz was no exaggeration. The report says McRae’s firm received nearly $390,000 in landscaping contracts from the

The 14-story hotel, long the dominant feature in the Mineral Wells skyline, has been stripped of just about everything valuable. Rooms are trashed and windows broken. Entrances are covered with sheets of plywood, forcing city officials to constantly seal new entryways pried open by trespassers - the Baker’s most frequent guests.

Ukraine has experienced its bloodiest week in decades after days of deadly clashes between anti-government protesters and police which ended in the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych. For three months demonstrators have been involved in a stand-off with authorities in the capital Kiev. But on February 18 violence escalated and the Health Ministry said the death toll between protesters and police had reached 82. The protesters put that figure at over 100. Here are a selection of photographs which capture the devastation caused in Kiev´s Independence Square.

WASHINGTON – U.S. prosecutors plan to seek the extradition of Mexico’s most wanted man, drug cartel kingpin Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman, to face trial in the United States after he was captured in Mexico. Robert Nardoza, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn, said on Sunday his office would request Guzman’s extradition to face a variety of charges. Guzman, caught on Saturday in Mexico with help from U.S. security forces, had long run Mexico’s infamous Sinaloa Cartel. His capture marks a major victory in the fight against drug gangs in Mexico. It was not immediately clear whether Mexico would

Nearly a full day after Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych departed his country’s capital, Kiev, leaving it to the protesters who have called for his removal for three months and the parliament that voted to do just that Saturday, no one seems to know where he is. On Saturday, ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych told an interviewer he would stay in the country and reverse the “coup d’etat” that had occurred. But that evening he boarded a jet in Donetsk, a city in the Russophone eastern part of the country, and tried to flee across the border. Oleh Slobodyan of the State

OVERLAND PARK — U.S. Senate candidate Milton Wolf posted a collection of gruesome X-ray images of gunshot fatalities and medical injuries to his Facebook page and participated in online commentary layered with macabre jokes and descriptions of carnage. Wolf, a Johnson County radiologist anchoring a campaign for the Republican nomination with calls for federal heath care reform, said in an interview the medical images were legally uploaded to public social media sites and other online venues for educational purposes. They also served, he said, to demonstrate evil lurking in the world. However, Wolf and others viewing these Facebook postings relentlessly poked fun

So wrote William Wordsworth about the commencement of the French Revolution. His words, no doubt, are echoed by many in Kiev today as they contemplate the sudden and shocking success of their revolution. President Viktor Yanukovych has been chased from power. His opulent palaces are now open to the public to see the extent of his enrichment at public expense. His leading political opponent, Yulia Tymoshenko, has been freed from prison. One of her allies, parliament speaker Oleksandr Turchynov, has assumed the powers of the president and a snap election has been called to elect a permanent successor. Remarkably enough there

Afghanistan´s Taliban said Sunday it has suspended ´mediation´ with the United States to exchange captive Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five senior Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, halting — at least temporarily — what was considered the best chance yet of securing the 27-year-old soldier´s freedom since his capture in 2009. In a terse Pashto language statement emailed to The Associated Press, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahed blamed the ´current complex political situation in the country´ for the suspension. A U.S. official with knowledge of the talks said the cause of the suspension was not the result of any issue between

President Obama, like Secretary of State John Kerry, worships at the Church of Global Warming but chooses a different form of grandstanding to profess his faith. In a speech at a Maryland supermarket warehouse, Obama said he was using his authority to direct the Transportation Department and the Environmental Protection Agency to tighten fuel economy standards for trucks as a measure to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the chief alleged earth-warming gas. He clearly intended to be seen as going around a stalemated Congress. Big whoop. This is a little like the rooster claiming credit for the sunrise. Congress long ago

"Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer warned in Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar.” A Roman religious holiday, the Ides (15th) of March was the day on which Roman consuls assumed office — and the day Caesar was assassinated. For the United States, and the world economy, the Ides will be around March 4 this year, predicted Grady Means in October 2012. Mr. Means isn’t a doomsayer who’s predicted 11 of the last two recessions. He isn’t trying to sell gold, silver or freeze-dried food.

For the first time since her infamous 2012 interview, National Security Advisor Susan Rice appeared on Meet the Press on Sunday February 23 to discuss a variety of foreign policy issues, most noticeably Benghazi. Throughout the interview, which focused primarily on the recent violent protests in Ukraine, host David Gregory provided Rice with a variety of softball questions on Benghazi, and allowed her to push White House talking points without any significant pushback. During the exchange on Benghazi, the word terrorism was not mentioned once, and Gregory seemed more concerned with allowing Rice to fix her disastrous appearance in 2012 than to

Rice did a round of Sunday TV interviews a few days after the attacks, in which some of the information she gave was later proven incorrect. “What I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice told NBC´s “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory on Sunday. “The information I provided …

That despite a thicket of security worries, logistical obstacles, weather annoyances and the darkening specter of revolution in nearby Ukraine, the country could put on a Games that ran seamlessly, at times even exuberantly. Its closing ceremony on Sunday night was advertised as a celebration of Russian culture and heritage – a grand party to show off the work of distinguished Russian musicians, dancers, artists and authors through the
