According the the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Eric Cantor has announced that he will be stepping down early. On Thursday, he bid farewell to the House in a speech on the floor that also expressed strong concerns over the state of the nation and the world: (Video) After suffering a surprise primary loss to a political newcomer and a relatively-unknown local college professor, Dave Brat, Cantor planned to stay in Congress and assist other Republican candidates in the upcoming election season. He explained the reason for the change of heart in a special guest column: During this time of transition for me and

AKRON, Ohio -- Asked after his round Saturday at Firestone Country Club which holes he was the most pleased about through three rounds of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Tiger Woods went the humorous route. "The 19th," he quipped. He smiled, but for Woods it was another day of frustration at a place where he has so often dominated. (Snip)"If I could just hit the ball a little better," Woods lamented. "I hit it pretty decent today, which was nice, I just didn´t (putt) well at all again. I couldn´t get comfortable with my setup and it just kind of worked out that way."

Former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank questioned President Obama’s honesty regarding the rollout of Obamacare in a recent interview. He told The Huffington Post on Friday that he was shocked at the mishandling of the new health care law. “The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled—I don’t understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis,” the former Democratic congressman told the website. “But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn’t true. And you shouldn’t lie to people. And they just lied to people,”

Tiger Woods struggled to a two-over-par 72 during the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational on Saturday and lost his cool along the way when he cursed at a cameraman who was closely following the former No. 1 golfer in the world. Woods hit a shot from the rough after a wayward drive at No. 6 when he began walking up the fairway as a cameraman came dashing his way. Woods appeared to begin to swing his club in anger toward the ground when he realized the cameraman was too close for comfort. He then not-so-politely asked the cameraman to give

Hillary Clinton told an interviewer in 1999 - the year after the Monica Lewinsky scandal rocked Bill Clinton´s presidency - that the President´s infidelity issues stemmed from his abusive mother and led to a sex addiction for the former president. (snip) "He was abused," Clinton told Franks. "When a mother does what she does, it affects you forever." Clinton continued: "I am not going into it, but I´ll say that when this happens in children, it scars you. You keep looking in all the wrong places for the parent who abused you."

Has Hamas ever threatened to take your phone, laptop or camera? 6. Has Hamas ever taken the phone, laptop or camera of a colleague in Gaza? 7. Have you seen Hamas fighters in Gaza? 8. If yes, why have you not directly reported Hamas fighting activity when

Right now Russia is moving troops, armor, and advanced antiaircraft missiles toward the border with Ukraine. In the last 48 hours, dozens of videos have been uploaded to social-media sites that show Russian armor very close to the border, many of them confirmed to be within mere kilometers of Ukraine. On Thursday, my team at The Interpreter definitively geolocated Russian armor only 2,000 meters (and closing) from the border and a Buk, the same type of missile that likely took down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, only a few hours from being within range of Ukraine’s air force.

The IDF has destroyed Hamas's flagship terrorism project; its network of cross-border tunnels that snuck under the border into Israel. The military also began to pull its forces out of the Gaza Strip on Saturday evening. Hamas has spent five years preparing this strategic threat; the IDF wrecked 31 tunnels in two weeks. By Sunday, all of the tunnels the IDF knew about, or discovered during the offensive, will be destroyed. A few tunnels that Israel doesn't know about may remain intact. Many of the underground passages were designed to send heavily armed murder squads into Israeli villages for killing sprees, and attack army positions from

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held a press conference at the Kirya military headquarters in Tel Aviv, as the IDF began withdrawing its troops from the Gaza Strip. "The IDF has neutralized many terror tunnels that took years for Hamas to build," Netanyahu said at the start of his address to the nation. "The IDF has had many achievements and successes since the beginning of the operation, hitting thousands of targets, including command center, arms factories, and terrorists." "This is a complicated mission, in an urban, built-up area, with direct contact with civilian population," he said. "I am proud of our soldiers who are doing an

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said Hillary Clinton is not "fit to lead the country" Friday, mocking the former secretary of state´s comments about her wealth and condemning her response to the September 2012 attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi. Paul´s scathing words could provide an early look at the arguments he will deploy against Clinton if they both decide to run for president. They came during a speech in Kentucky before a crowd of several hundred GOP activists. Paul opened his speech by joking that he was losing sleep over Clinton´s money problems, according to National Journal.

Massachusetts lawmakers sent a bill to Gov. Deval Patrick’s desk for passage that puts police chiefs in charge of deciding whether or not a person is fit enough to own a gun — and gives them the power to deny purchases in certain cases. “We seek not to be the safest state in the nation, but strive to make our communities the safest in the world,” said House Speaker Robert DeLeo, Reuters reported. Mr. Patrick supports the measure and is expected to sign it into law soon. Critics say the new authority for police holds potential to become a Second

U.S. Military officials confirmed that a U.S. Air Force spy plane dodged the Russian military by flying into nearby Swedish airspace without permission. A RC-135V/W Rivet Joint reconnaissance plane conducting a mission in international air space July 18 had to alter its course when Russia began tracking the plane with land-based radar, CNN reported Saturday. The Russians then sent at least one fighter jet into the sky to intercept the American plane, U.S. officials told the news network. In order to shake off the radar tracking as quickly as possible, the spy plane crew made the call to fly into

Israel-Gaza border - The entrance is a deep vertical shaft, usually hidden in a house. It drops down a dozen metres or so before reaching a horizontal passage, lined with concrete and electric cables. Most are around a metre wide and perhaps 2.5m high, barely enough to accommodate a man carrying a heavy load of weaponry. The tunnels descend deeper, reaching up to 30m below the surface. Most are between one and three kilometres long and have many entrances and branches. They interconnect with other passages and with bunkers used as command centres and weapons stores and to keep Hamas´s

Republicans this week released e-mails showing that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner expressed scorn for conservatives in an e-mail to an unidentified recipient — the name was redacted. Lerner’s remarks would be troubling if she sent them to another IRS official, but it ends up that she was communicating with her husband, Michael Miles, according to unredacted copies of the exchange that Democrats leaked on Friday. To review, Lerner used the term “__hole” to describe extreme conservatives after Miles complained about “the whacko wing of the GOP,” adding that “right wing radio shows are scary to listen to.”

House Republicans have passed legislation to shut down a program by President Barack Obama granting deportation relief to immigrants brought here illegally as kids, with many calling the bill a dead-end as the Senate leaves for summer break. [Snip] It also would block Obama from awarding work permits to other immigrants here illegally. The bill was supported by conservatives who demanded it as their price for backing a separate measure dealing with the crisis of unaccompanied minors flooding the border. The Senate has already adjourned for Congress´ summer recess so neither bill stands a chance of becoming law.

PHOENIX — Lauro Tobias had worked for 10 years as a federal customs agent when he was targeted by undercover investigators trying to root out corruption at the Lukeville, Ariz., border crossing where he worked. Tobias was indicted in March 2013 and charged with transporting $100,000 in proceeds from drug sales on two occasions. Later that year, he was re-indicted on the same charges, plus computer fraud and bribery. Except there were no drug deals, he never saw the alleged money, and he was accompanied by his supervisor, who was really an undercover officer conducting a sting operation, according to his

A Sierra Leone cyclist who ´vanished´ from the Commonwealth Games in an apparent bid to avoid going back to his Ebola-stricken country has been found - but several of his teammates do not want to return home. The plea from the athletes was made as Sierra Leone sportstars failed to turn up for four separate events, sparking fears that even more of the country´s athletes could be going missing. It comes as the World Health Organisation issued a warning about the epidemic of Ebola in West Africa - which they now say has killed more than 700 people in four countries.

On Friday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer discussed his latest Washington Post column, which criticized the role Secretary of State John Kerry has played in the Israel-Hamas conflict. Krauthammer pointed out the latest breach of a cease-fire by Hamas has given Kerry the opportunity to walk back some of his efforts that gave Hamas the benefit of the doubt. But the other problem for Israel has been the inability to win over public opinion around the world. “The rest of the world's reaction to what's happening in Gaza is Orwellian,” Krauthammer said. “It is shocking, especially in
