CLEAR LAKE, Iowa — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, seeking political redemption in Iowa, spent his weekend waiting almost two hours in a school cafeteria to speak to Republican activists, attending local church services and eating barbecue with fellow veterans. The former U.S. Air Force pilot´s two-day visit was his fourth trip to the state since the 2012 election, in what even he describes as a disastrous first try at the White House. "I know first impressions matter, but second impressions do as well," Perry, 64, said Sunday in an interview in Clear Lake, Iowa. "This country has been about second chances a

The town of Reus in the Catalan province of Tarragona has become the first in Spain to ban the wearing of full-face veils in public, a move which follows a judgment on July 1 by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) which found that a French law banning the wearing of the veil did not breach the Convention on Human Rights. The Strasbourg judges said the French ban was justified because of respect for life in society: "The barrier raised against others by a veil concealing the face in public could undermine the notion of ´living together,´" the judges said.

IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel Thomas Kane said in transcribed congressional testimony that more IRS officials experienced computer crashes, bringing the total number of crash victims to “less than 20,” and also said that the agency does not know if the lost emails are still backed up somewhere. The new round of computer crash victims includes David Fish, who routinely corresponded with Lois Lerner, as well as Lerner subordinate Andy Megosh, Lerner’s technical adviser Justin Lowe, and Cincinnati-based agent Kimberly Kitchens. “You stated at the time that document was produced to Congress, the document, the white paper in Exhibit 3[the

While eying a potential presidential run that would surely be boosted by deep-pocketed super PACs, Hillary Clinton said Monday evening that she’s open to supporting a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which opened the door to the outside groups and the flood of money that poured into the political process with them. Taking questions from Facebook users at the social media giant’s California headquarters Monday evening, Clinton expressed some interest in the idea. “I would consider supporting an amendment among these lines that would prevent the abuse of our political system by excessive amounts of money

Hillary and Bill Clinton went to the top of the NBC food chain, all the way up to General Electric’s board, to get back at MSNBC´s David Shuster in 2008, according to Daniel Halper’s forthcoming book “Clinton Inc.” Halper, the online editor at the conservative Weekly Standard, details how far the Clinton camp went to get back at Shuster for saying that Chelsea Clinton was "sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way” for lobbying super delegates on her mother’s behalf during the presidential primaries. “According to a source close to the situation, the Clintons called people on the

Russia´s billionaire businessmen are ´horrified´ at the prospect of crippling economic sanctions in response to Moscow´s involvement in Ukraine, but are too terrified of president Vladimir Putin to say so openly, it has been claimed. The U.S. has already imposed a raft of sanctions against Russian companies and individuals with Britain and the Netherlands pushing for the EU to impose even tougher measures following the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. Additional U.S. measures may be imposed in the next few weeks and financial experts believe Russia´s $2 trillion economy could be pushed into recession. According to Igor Bunin, who heads the

A new Clinton mystery has hit New York City and Washington, D.C. with the surprise display of posters declaring the Clintons as “America´s Most Dangerous Family" and "America´s Lannisters." Pulled by advertising bikes over the weekend, the posters use themes from TV´s "Game of Thrones" and "House of Cards" in portraying Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton -- and advisor James Carville -- as evil, though they don´t indicate exactly what the advertising is for. One of the ad posters appears similar to the style of the hit Netflix series, "House of Cards." The poster is in black and white and shows Bill

Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.

Fighting broke out near the railway station at the heart of the rebel stronghold of Donetsk on Monday in what separatists said was an attempt by government forces to seize back the east Ukrainian city. The government in Kiev denied sending the regular army into the centre of Donetsk, which the separatists captured in April, but said small ´self-organised´ pro-Ukrainian groups were fighting the pro-Russian rebels in the city. Four people were killed in clashes near the railway station and close to the airport outside Donetsk, local health officials said in the industrial city which was home to about one million people

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala — The man-in-the-know nursed a late-morning beer at a bar near the Suchiate River that separates Guatemala from Mexico, and answered a question about his human smuggling business with a question: “Do you think a coyote is going to say he’s a coyote?” Dressed as a migrant in shorts and sandals but speaking like an entrepreneur, he then described shipments of tens of thousands of dollars in human cargo from the slums of Honduras and highlands of Guatemala to cities across the United States. “It’s business,” he said, agreeing to speak to a reporter only if guaranteed anonymity. “Sometimes,

HOUSTON, Texas--The U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee approved a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 that includes $5.508 billion for Immigration and Customs Enforcement operations.

The FY 2015 bill summary states that the federal government will provide "$87.6 million above the request for the transportation of unaccompanied immigrant children– often via commercial or charter aircraft – from DHS custody to the legally required shelters operated by the Office of Refugee

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) believes Hispanics should get amnesty and citizenship to punish Americans who are against illegal immigration. After he told the La Raza conference in Los Angeles that President Barack Obama gave the Latino community a "down payment" with his temporary amnesty program that halted the deportations "of our people," Gutierrez urged Hispanics to seek retribution at the ballot box. "We need to raise our voices, make ourselves citizens, sign up to vote and punish those who speak ill and criminalize children who come to our border," Gutierrez reportedly said in Spanish this weekend.

Texas Rep. Joaquín Castro on Monday said Gov. Rick Perry is “militarizing our border” with his reported decision to deploy state National Guard troops there. “We should be sending the Red Cross to the border not the National Guard to deal with this humanitarian crisis,” the Democratic congressman said in an email. “The children fleeing violence in Central America are seeking out border patrol agents. They are not trying to evade them. Why send soldiers to confront these kids?” “Militarizing our border is the wrong response to the arrival of children,” Castro continued. “I remain hopeful that our state can provide a

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee and a key immigration hawk, took to the Senate floor on Monday afternoon to attack the efforts by President Barack Obama to grant amnesty via executive order to millions of illegal aliens. During his floor speech, Sessions endorsed a bill from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) that aims to curb the president’s executive amnesty efforts—and called on his colleagues to cosponsor it. Sessions said: Senator Cruz has a bill that would stop this presidential overreach. Sessions said. It’s very simple. It lays out that we won’t spend money providing legal documents

The first aerial pictures of the MH17 crash site have emerged, laying bare the breathtaking scale of the disaster that claimed the lives of 298 innocents. The stills, taken from the skies over the village of Grabovo in eastern Ukraine, show the scorched earth at the point of impact and gives an idea of how much more severe the devastation could have been had it come down in the nearby family homes. Grabovo is controlled by pro-Russian rebels, widely suspected of shooting the plane out of the sky on Thursday afternoon. The pictures emerged as the train carrying the bodies of all

Speaking at the Western Conservative Summit at Colorado Christian University on Saturday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) made the case for the undocumented immigrant children flowing over the American-Mexican border to be sent to places liberals are known to dwell. “Notice they (law enforcement officials) are not hauling illegals to those swanky ‘hoods of D.C. or Manhattan or San Francisco,” Palin said. “They’re housed in vacant schools in working class neighborhoods? Why not [unintelligible] and Columbia U? There, too, school’s out for summer.” Palin also dubbed the border situation an “invasion” that has been facilitated by President Barack Obama. “If Obama

On Monday morning, President Obama signed an executive order prohibiting organizations that receive federal contracts from making employment decisions on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. A group of religious leaders and Obama allies had called for the executive order to include a religious exemption, so that "religious organizations will not be automatically disqualified or disadvantaged in obtaining contracts because of their religious beliefs." But the president rejected their request. The order allows religious organizations permitted to prioritize the hiring of coreligionists to continue to do so, but it does not include an exemption for any group that

Sarah Palin, as usual, riled up the crowd at Western Conservative Summit this past weekend. An outspoken advocate of impeaching President Obama, she called out those conservatives who believe that, politically, impeachment would be a failure because it would set Obama up as a martyr. The buck stops with the guy at the top. Considering Articles of Impeachment is the check. Making the case for it is not difficult. Difficult is having the moral courage to do what’s right, Congress. It takes guts to hold him accountable. I’m hearing some argue for cautious inaction, they’re terming it. They’re saying, ‘Obama’s
