Black Friday chaos already
underway as bargain-hungry
shoppers scuffle for early
deals after queuing for days

Scuffles are already breaking out between shoppers desperate to get their hands on Black Friday deals as a record number of stores open on Thanksgiving. With 41 million people expected to shop on what has been dubbed ´Gray Thursday´, police have responded to fights and threats between bargain-hungry customers, some of whom have camped outside stores for days. Outside a Kmart in Indianapolis, which opened at 6am on Thursday, officers responded to a brawl between shoppers as some attempted to sell vouchers the store had handed out for limited items. ´Everybody started going crazy

WASHINGTON — How does second lady Jill Biden prank her husband on April Fool´s Day? By disappearing on Air Force Two and then jumping out of an overhead luggage compartment. That´s according to Vice President Joe Biden. He´s dishing to talk show host Rachael Ray in a last-minute push for health care sign-ups. Biden says he proposed to her four times before she finally said yes. Biden insists it´s important to keep romancing Jill because he loves her more than she loves him. He says he uses a men´s version of Clinique skin cream at his wife´s instruction. The appearance

A newly-released report has revealed that two of Governor Chris Christie´s aides were romantically involved leading up to last year´s traffic closures. Bridget Anne Kelly, who infamously sent an email saying ´time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee´, was reportedly dating Christie´s former campaign manager Bill Stepien throughout much of his re-election race. The report, released today by a law firm Christie hired to investigate the scandal, said that the two had been a couple for months but had called things off a month before the George Washington Bridge lane closures. Stepien, 36, worked as the Republican governor´s deputy

VATICAN CITY- U.S. President Barack Obama heard the Catholic Church´s concerns over his health care plan while on a visit to the Vatican on Thursday, but drew a cheerful response from Pope Francis when inviting him to visit Washington. The president appeared at ease and joked during the parts of his meeting with the pope that were open to a few reporters, but a brief Vatican statement issued later indicated that Obama´s private talks there had a more serious side. The statement said Obama, who was accompanied by Secretary of State John Kerry, was told of the Vatican´s concern about

BEIJING — Among the superlatives and breathless praise visitors lavish on Tibet, few involve its largely forgettable food. In a tough climate, on the roof of the world, most meals consist of tsampa, a tasteless dough made from roasted barley flour. But Michelle Obama, accompanied by her mother and daughters, did more than promote a little-known cuisine Wednesday at lunchtime with her controversial choice of a Tibetan restaurant as the final stop of the first-ever solo trip to China by an American first lady. Simply by dining at the Zangxiang Teahouse in Chengdu, a city in southwestern China, Obama drew

Rome- US President Barack Obama took time out during his trip to Rome for a half-hour private guided tour of the Colosseum, saying he was amazed by the size of the ancient Roman amphitheatre. The Colosseum and the Roman Forum were entirely closed to the public during the visit in which Obama was accompanied by red-headed Barbara Nazzaro, technical director of the Colosseum. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums!" the president exclaimed to reporters. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable," he said.

ABC World News anchor Diane Sawyer has scored an exclusive interview with New Jersey governor Chris Christie, the first since his infamous press conference earlier this year over the BridgeGate scandal that completely captivated the national media. Christie has consistently denied personal involvement in the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge for petty political reasons, and Christie launched an internal review with an investigator that he appointed. (Snip) Christie’s wife, Mary Pat Christie, is also sitting down with Sawyer.

Maddow: Number of Criminal
Scandals Involving California Dems
Could Revive State’s GOP

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tore into the scandal-plagued Democratic Party of California on Wednesday night. She noted that the Golden State is dominated by Democrats and, while the state’s GOP is probably “beyond reviving,” the impression that the Democratic Party is corrupt at the state level has the potential to bring it back. Maddow began by reporting that a series of raids were conducted across Northern California on Wednesday in which a variety of politicians were arrested. The arrest of Sen. Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) on gun trafficking and bribery charges made him the third Democratic lawmaker in state government

Every month that Gregory Zbylut pays $1,300 toward his law school loans is another month of not qualifying for a decent mortgage. Every payment toward their student loans is $900 Dr. Nida Degesys and her husband aren’t putting in their retirement savings account. They believe they’ll eventually climb from debt and begin using their earnings to build assets rather than fill holes. But, like the roughly 37 million others in the U.S. saddled with $1 trillion in student debt, they may never catch up with wealthy peers who began life after college free from the burden. The disparity, experts say,

ABC, CNN, MSNBC and PBS on Wednesday and Thursday all covered the "shocking" corruption involving the Democratic mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. Yet, while talking about the tens of thousands of dollars in bribes he sought, none of these networks identified Patrick Cannon´s political party. Only a Fox News host referred to him as a Democrat. On ABC´s Good Morning America, Amy Robach asserted, "Well, the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina has resigned after being arrested during an FBI sting."

Washington - Rand Paul has long been very open about his ambitions for higher office, telling CNN as early as November 2012, just weeks after the last presidential election, of his interest in running for the White House. And the Republican senator from Kentucky is on top of the pack in CNN´s most recent poll in the hypothetical race for the 2016 GOP nomination. Now, Paul´s become the first of the potential Republican White House contenders to put together a political organization in all 50 states. It´s the latest sign that the senator is working to assemble a much wider

Sen. Charles Schumer said Thursday that some of the ads bankrolled by conservative mega-donor David Koch are “un-American.” “I think the commercials he is running are against the American dream are un-American,” Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat, said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I think what Harry Reid was saying is the actions are un-American, and they are, and they should change.” David and Charles Koch have become favorite targets of Democrats in the run-up to the 2014 election, where they are trying to defend the Senate.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied.

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
