AUSTIN - Gov. Rick Perry, finding biblical significance in the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, assured thousands of activists at Saturday´s Rally for Life at the Texas Capitol that this legislative session will build on past efforts to restrict abortion. "The ideal world is one without abortion. Until then, we will continue to pass laws to ensure abortions are as rare as possible," Perry told a crowd. Joined by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Attorney General Greg Abbott and anti-abortion groups, Perry said he was with "men and women who understand those Biblical stories."

The State Department is presenting a global webcast on February 4, titled "From the Street to Mainstream: The Evolution of Rap/Hip Hop Music." The host of the webcast, rapper and State Department Music Ambassador Toni Blackman, will be joined by Pras Michel, a founding member of the hip hop group the Fugees, to discuss "how rap and hip hop have increased social awareness of the African-American experience — and raised even broader issues in contemporary society." Some of Michel´s more inflammatory comments in the past raise questions about the appropriateness of his appearance with the U.S.´s music ambassador on a

DAVIE– While most of the stories surrounding the text messages between Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito have focused on the relationship between the two players, a secondary issue could put both players at risk of further suspension. Incognito’s attorney, Mark Schamel, gave CBS4 40 pages of text messages between his client and Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin. At multiple points in the texts, both Martin and Incognito refer to drugs. On July 29, 2013, Incognito is exchanging texts with Martin and said, “Pop a couple Molly I’m sweeeeatin.” On August 31, 2013, Incognito is trying to coax Martin to

Ann Romney joined Fox News Channel host Bill Hemmer on Friday to discuss the recently released Netflix documentary about her husband and former Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. She said that she always believed that her husband would be elected president and was shocked that he was not. When asked to comment on the state of President Barack Obama’s presidency, she refused to comment but noted that “the country lost” when they did not elect Mitt Romney in 2012. “I really believe this,” Ann Romney said, “We lost, but truly the country lost by not having Mitt as president.”

Keystone XL oil pipeline clears
significant hurdle

WASHINGTON- The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada moved a significant step toward completion Friday as the State Department raised no major environmental objections to its construction. The finding is likely to be welcomed by Republicans and some oil- and gas-producing states but is sure to further rankle environmentalists already at odds with President Barack Obama over his energy policy. The department report stops short of recommending approval of the $7 billion pipeline, which has become a major symbol of the political debate over climate change. But the review gives Obama political cover if he chooses to endorse the

At least five hotels near the Super Bowl stadium and the office of former mayor Rudy Giuliani have received envelopes containing a suspicious white powder, authorities have said. The FBI and other law enforcement agencies continue to investigate the potential targets; initial reports said that three New Jersey hotels found envelopes but now it has increased to at least five. But New Jersey Mayor James Cassella told CNN on Friday afternoon that the fire chief says one letter has been tested - and it only contained cornstarch. A letter containing a white substance was also addressed to Giuliani and sent

During this week´s State of the Union address, the President of the United States concluded his remarks telling the story of Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg. Sgt. Remsburg, on his 10th tour in Afghanistan, nearly lost his life when a roadside bomb exploded. Sgt. Remsburg suffered brain damage and paralysis on his left side, is now partially blind and has difficulty speaking. It was a touching ending to an otherwise shabby speech. More striking than President Obama´s tribute was the press corps´ reaction. NBC News Senior Political Editor Mark Murray declared on twitter that, "Obama´s ending on Remsburg wasn´t just

Dramatic pictures have been released showing the destruction wrought by a huge boulder that smashed through a farm in Northern Italy after being dislodged by a landslide. The massive rock narrowly missed a farm house, destroyed a barn, and stopped in a vineyard at the property in Ronchi di Termeno. A second giant boulder detached during the landslide stopped behind the house. The family living there was unharmed in the incident,

Four Pinocchios for ´Jingoistic´ Steyer ad

NextGen Climate Action, the activist group run by billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, fudged the facts in a new ad attacking the Keystone XL pipeline, according to Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler. Kessler said he “takes no position on whether the Keystone pipeline would be good or bad, but this ad does not even meet the minimal standards for such political attack ads.” “It relies on speculation, not facts, to make insinuations and assertions not justified by the reality,” he wrote. The ad in question claims that oil shipped via the proposed Keystone pipeline from Canadian oil sands will be primarily

(Video) Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) seemed unaware several of her former staffers have gone on to lobby for big corporations Thursday on The Daily Show. Host Jon Stewart said the “revolving door” of staffers from Capitol Hill to lobbying firms and corporations results in results in legislative quid pro quos. Pelosi replied she thinks that issue is more germane to the executive branch, citing an unspecified instance at NSA. Stewart countered “but folks in your office have gone on to work for Boeing and many other contractors.” “I don’t know that,” she said: JON STEWART: But folks in your office

The First Lady of the United States stopped by San Francisco on Thursday, as you may have heard. The Chronicle’s political reporters have been covering the story all day, and will continue to do so into the evening, But in middle of the day, Ms. Michelle Obama and a number of her guests dined at Cotogna. It looks like the Obamas are fans of Lindsay and Michael Tusk’s Pacific Avenue restaurants; back in 2012, Michael Tusk cooked for President Obama (in a private home), serving him dishes like cheese-filled tortelloni and poularde in various preparations.

Is Marriage Responsible

If you really want to fight inequality you could campaign for a higher minimum wage or advocate for education reform. Or, as it turns out, you could do your patriotic duty and marry down (or up). According to a new study, the way Americans choose their spouses has contributed significantly to increased inequality. From 1960 through 2005, Americans increasingly engaged in "assortative mating" – an academic way of saying rich people are increasingly marrying rich people, and likewise poor people choose poor spouses. The study focuses on one measure of inequality called the Gini Index. The index measures a society´s

Hundreds of career Justice Department lawyers have broken into open revolt against Attorney General Holder over his support of legislation that would drastically cut back on mandatory minimum sentences for drug pushers. The legislation Holder supports, known as the Durbin-Lee bill, would overturn the current mandatory minimum sentences not only for marijuana violations but for all drug offenses, including major and repeat trafficking in heroin, meth, PCP and other extremely dangerous, and often lethal, drugs. This was too much for hundreds of federal prosecutors. Today, Chuck Grassley, the Ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, read aloud from a letter the

WASHINGTON — Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year. Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history. “It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said

Someone you probably are not familiar with has filed a suit you probably have not heard about concerning a four-word phrase you should know about. The suit could blow to smithereens something everyone has heard altogether too much about, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (hereafter, ACA). Scott Pruitt and some kindred spirits might accelerate the ACA’s collapse by blocking another of the Obama administration’s lawless uses of the Internal Revenue Service. Pruitt was elected Oklahoma’s attorney general by promising to defend states’ prerogatives against federal encroachment, and today he and some properly

Attorney General Eric Holder couldn´t explain the constitutional basis for executive orders such as President Obama´s delay of the employer mandate because he hasn´t read the legal analysis -- or at least, hasn´t seen it in a long time. "I´ll be honest with you, I have not seen -- I don´t remember looking at or having seen the analysis in some time, so I´m not sure where along the spectrum that would come," Holder replied when Sen.

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist.

Obama won’t give it up. If you also suffered through the State of the Union address, you heard him praise Obamacare, claim he would slash bureaucracy, and of course, fight for income equality. Obama pandered to the ladies, his tone becoming more passionate with every overly emotional word: Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. You have probably heard that statistic—77 cents on the dollar. Speech after speech from the left side of town

Remember how liberals pounced on Chick-Fil-A’s owner/president for saying more or less what Barack Obama said in his 2008 campaign for president? That marriage was between a man and a woman? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block the chain from coming to Beantown. Gotham’s then-City Council speaker, Christine Quinn, demanded Chick-Fil-A’s one New York store be sent packing. Well, this week Chick-Fil-A values were back in the news. When the deep South was paralyzed by snow that stranded motorists for hours and forced others to abandon cars, Chick-Fil-A moved in. In
