At today’s Arlington National Cemetery Memorial Day observance, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said “troops of such caliber demand great leaders, and there’s no doubt they have one in our commander in chief.” “I see that every day,” continued Carter, who assumed his post in February. “He knows well the challenges we must face, the obligations we must meet, and the opportunities we must seize in order to keep our nation safe and to make a better world for our children. And I see that he cares deeply about the safety, welfare, and dignity of our men and women in uniform

Michelle Obama urged another class of college graduates Monday to work aggressively to change American society and not be deterred by noisy or obstructionist opposition. The 51-year-old first lady spent her Memorial Day not with her husband honoring the fallen military at Arlington National Cemetery, but urging graduates at Ohio´s Oberlin College to become persistent, determined agents of change in their communities. She warned them about the evils of American society outside academia, requiring constant change, not support. And she urged them to "shape the revolutions of your time" by becoming community

Des Moines - After 11 Republican presidential contenders spoke to a huge gathering of Iowa party activists at the Lincoln Day Dinner this month, they moved to hospitality suites to greet people one on one. (Snip) But the line to meet one candidate, Carly Fiorina, a former Silicon Valley executive whose name recognition is negligible among voters, snaked down the hallway. For more than an hour, Iowans filed into the suite for their chance to meet Ms. Fiorina. Ms. Fiorina, a former chief executive at Hewlett-Packard with a flair for biting one-liners, had just delivered a speech that included references to God and a joke about

The eleventh hour cancellation of Bristol Palin´s Memorial Day Weekend wedding left mom Sarah with little alternative but to go ahead with the already planned reception - although significantly her daughter chose not to attend. The bizarre set of circumstances mean´t that while the former vice presidential candidate hung out with her daughter´s ex-fiance and ex-Marine Dakota Meyer and his family in Kentucky, Bristol made a very public showing of her non-attendance by posting a series of photos of her enjoying a ´weekend getaway´ back in Alaska with her best friend who is an exotic model. Sarah Palin had taken to Facebook

If you’re a Republican primary voter, you’re probably feeling pretty good about the presidential primaries. Even if you haven’t yet found the candidate who will make you swoon, one thing you’ve got is choices. By my count, there are currently 10 candidates who are declared or all but certain to run, and another four who will probably run. But while the voters might find this an embarrassment of riches, for the party’s leaders and financiers, it looks like a recipe for trouble. Which is how I interpret this news: In a Saturday interview on the Larry Kudlow Show, a nationally

President Barack Obama focused on global climate change in his commencement remarks at the Coast Guard Academy. “I’m here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and – make no mistake – it will impact how our military defends our country,” Obama said. He added that climate change deniers are negligent and derelict in their duties. “And if you see storm clouds gathering or dangerous shoals ahead, you don’t just sit back and do nothing. You take action to protect your ship, to keep your crew safe. Anything less is

Four Words That Imperil Health Care Law
Were All a Mistake, Writers Now Say

WASHINGTON — They are only four words in a 900-page law: “established by the state.” But it is in the ambiguity of those four words in the Affordable Care Act that opponents found a path to challenge the law, all the way to the Supreme Court. How those words became the most contentious part of President Obama’s signature domestic accomplishment has been a mystery. Who wrote them, and why? Were they really intended, as the plaintiffs in King v. Burwell claim, to make the tax subsidies in the law available only in states that established their own health insurance marketplaces, and not

Washington -Julian Castro labeled the House Republican-led investigation into Hillary Clinton´s emails a "witch hunt" and a "sideshow" from dealing with America´s most pressing problems. The Housing and Urban Development secretary accused GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy of "very intentionally trying to manipulate this witch hunt to play politics." "That´s unfortunate and it´s one of the reasons Congress has a 19% approval rating," Castro told CNN´s Jim Acosta Sunday on "State of the Union." A trove of Clinton´s emails from her time as secretary of state were released Friday by the State Department. A House panel investigating the attack on the

These are dark days for KFC´s once-dominant chicken empire. After five years of crumbling sales, the extra crispy mega-chain, which in 2012 lost its throne as America´s top chicken seller to Chick-fil-A, now makes less money than eateries half its size, like Applebee´s and Panera Bread. Now, 75 years after "Colonel" Harland Sanders first served his original recipe at a six-seat dining table in rural Kentucky, the chain is betting $185 million on a massive, bizarre turnaround campaign in hopes of winning a seat again at the fast-food table. The chain is blasting out TV ads, offering new Southern-style grub and remodeling

A newly hired Boston University professor, who apologized over racially charged comments and allegedly ridiculed a white rape victim in Facebook posts, reportedly was charged in 2008 with felony identity theft. According to Boston.com, incoming BU sociology professor Saida Grundy was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2008 after she created a fake account for another woman on the adult website Fling.com. Grundy, who was a graduate student at the University of Michigan at the time, said in a statement to Boston.com: “When this incident occurred I was 24, and exercised the poor judgment of a heartbroken 24 year old. I

Talk to anyone in my business and they´ll all say the same thing: No matter how long you write stories and put them in the newspaper, you are never really sure which ones are going to strike a nerve. What you think might be a Pulitzer-quality epic might draw only a nice call from Mom, while a simple tale tossed off on deadline causes an uproar, or an avalanche of praise. One legendary former investigative reporter at this paper wrote scores of stories that changed laws and saved lives, yet never did he get more mail than when he wrote

GOP debate rules could reignite

WASHINGTON — Not surprisingly, the GOP presidential debates announced last week will be open only to candidates who can legally serve as president. That will make Fox News and CNN the first arbiters of Canada-born Ted Cruz’s eligibility. By putting him on stage, they will implicitly be granting a seal of approval to the only contender born outside the U.S. The U.S. Constitution says a president has to be a natural-born citizen. Fox and CNN both listed Article II, Section 1 among the requirements for would-be debaters. It’s inconceivable that either network would invoke that requirement to shut out the Texas senator. But
