Former secretary of State Hillary Clinton said while there are many Democratic women who are qualified to run for president in 2016, she may be the only one with the experience to do it. In an interview with Canadian network CBC, Clinton said she’s “well aware” of the expectation women have for her to run. “I’m incredibly touched by it and feel responsible because of it,” she said. “And I know that it’s important that we break that highest and hardest glass ceiling. I also believe there are quite a few women who are eminently qualified but may not have

WASHINGTON – Inability to afford expensive equipment will be less of a barrier to invention under President Barack Obama’s plan to spur innovation by opening federal and local facilities to entrepreneurs. The president is expected to announce the initiative this afternoon during a visit to Bakery Square’s TechShop, a membership-based manufacturing workshop that’s a model for the kind of sharing of resources he wants to see more of. The president is expected to tour the workshop at 1:25 p.m. and deliver remarks at 1:45 p.m. The event is not open to the public. During his visit, the president is expected

Iran maneuvers to win blame
game if nuclear talks collapse

Iran´s nuclear negotiating team has come to this city hoping to seal a deal on its disputed nuclear program that will finally remove the international sanctions crippling its economy. But just in case they don´t win that diplomatic victory, they are carefully positioning themselves to come away with a valuable second prize: a win in the ugly blame game that would follow the collapse of negotiations. Tehran´s team wants to make sure that if its talks with six world powers collapse, many nations would conclude that Iran had been prepared to compromise and the obstacle was the maximalist demands of

President Obama will be back in the New York groove again on Tuesday. The President is coming to Manhattan for three Democratic fund-raisers, just in time to snarl traffic during rush hour in what’s become known as the Barack-lock. His first stop early Tuesday night will be at a "round table" discussion for the Senate Majority PAC, a Democratic group that accepts unlimited contributions. Former Mayor Bloomberg, Steven Spielberg and David Boies are among those included on the PAC´s 2013-1014 donor list. Obama will then headline the DNC LGBT Leadership Council’s gala fund-raiser at Gotham Hall in midtown. Brooklyn Nets

WASHINGTON — Drawing attention to his economic policies and courting a key Democratic constituency, President Barack Obama is embarking on a two-stop day trip to highlight technological developments and to raise money for the Democratic Party from a newly energized gay community. Obama on Tuesday was traveling to Pittsburgh, where he will visit a workshop designed to give entrepreneurs, inventors and creators the space and the tools to design and build their prototypes. He then will fly to New York City for a gala lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee. The fundraiser comes a day

Shocking video emerged today showing armed militant children - some no older than eight - proudly overseeing the execution of a prisoner in cold blood as jihadi fighters continue their ruthless drive to topple Iraq. The footage shows a man surrounded by a baying mob of masked insurgents reportedly in the city of Mosul which was taken by ISIS militants last week. Among the crowd are a number of children who brandish automatic weapons as they watch on unmoved just a few feet away. The man is then made to kneel on the ground before being shot in the back of

TUCSON, Arizona--As more and more unaccompanied alien children (UACs) from Central America have poured into south Texas—and subsequently transferred to Border Patrol facilities elsewhere along the border—US government officials are scrambling to find places to put them. However, based on current immigration and asylum laws, the vast majority of those children could be legally staying right here in the United States before long. Under the authority of the Homeland Security Act, the federal government transfers custody of illegal immigrant children who are apprehended alone at our borders to the Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

Syrian and Iraqi terrorist forces obtained significant numbers of tanks, trucks, and U.S.-origin Humvees in recent military operations in Iraq and those arms are being shipped to al Qaeda rebels in Syria, according to U.S. officials. U.S. intelligence agencies reported this week that photos of the equipment transfers were posted online by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS, the ultra-violent terror group that broke away from al Qaeda but shares its goals and philosophy. Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Bill Speaks confirmed the weapons transfers and expressed concerns about the captured arms. “We’re aware of

The U.S. is sending around 275 troops, “equipped for combat,” to Iraq to bolster security at the American Embassy in Baghdad, President Obama informed Congress on Monday night – the first operational deployment there since the withdrawal in late 2011. “This force is deploying for the purpose of protecting U.S. citizens and property, if necessary, and is equipped for combat,” he said in a War Powers Resolution notification to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the president pro tempore of the Senate, Sen. Patrick Leahy. (D-Vt.). “This force will remain in Iraq until the security situation becomes such that it

PILGER, Neb. — Farmer Gene Oswald was in town Monday afternoon when he realized the weather was turning for the worse. He and a nephew fled to a family member’s basement. At one point, Oswald’s nephew peeked from a basement window. “He said, ‘Gene, there’s stuff flying above the co-op,’?” Oswald said. Ryan Kruger and five co-workers at the Farmers Co-operative piled into the co-op office’s vault. Other employees huddled in the meat locker of the Pilger Store next door. “Our ears started popping ... and we heard a swishing sound,” said Kruger, of Norfolk. “About the time we figured

General Motors GM +1.21% has provided more fodder for Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra’s return engagement with Congress. The Detroit-based automaker on Monday recalled another 3.16 million 2000 to 2014 model year vehicles, according to a U.S. regulatory filing. It was the second recall over consecutive business days, coming on top of a recall Friday of more than 500,000 Camaro sports cars plus other models. GM also said it now expects to record recall-related costs of $700 million for the second quarter, up from a previous estimate of $400 million. GM said it’s recalling the newest batch of vehicles because

In an interview with MSN.com, First Lady Michelle Obama explained she used to struggle to feed her kids right—even though she received an education from Harvard and Princeton. “Before coming to the White House, I struggled, as a working parent with a traveling, busy husband, to figure out how to feed my kids healthy, and I didn’t get it right,” she explained, sharing a story about her children’s doctor who pulled her aside to talk about her family diet. “I thought to myself, if a Princeton and Harvard-educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what

At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton´s book tour. They´re all genuinely important news stories, and they´ve crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration´s attempts to deflect blame for the border

In an email this evening, a veteran publishing source calls the latest Hillary Clinton book, Hard Choices, a memoir of her State Department years, a "bomb." The source is referring to the early but underwhelming sales figures. "Between us, they are nervous at S&S [Simon & Schuster]," says the source, who gave permission for his email to be published. "Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster." According to this source, a Simon & Schuster insider, "They sold 60,000 hard covers first week and 24,000 ebooks." The publishing house was "hoping and praying for 150,000 print first week."

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced during a New York Times interview that the Holy Bible is the book that made her who she is today. “If you had to name one book that made you who you are today, what would it be?” asked The New York Times, in a book review questionnaire. “At the risk of appearing predictable, the Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking,” Clinton said. “I was raised reading it, memorizing passages from it and being guided by it.” “I still find it a source of wisdom, comfort and encouragement,” she

I know, I know, the recent ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) gains have everyone scared. No doubt, the Islamophilic administration will want to step in, and save Islam from itself once again. Let me advocate a course of action that will make sense (snip) Let the Muslims kill each other. After the administration blundered on Benghazi, on the Arab Spring, and Syria, Heaven itself has afforded it one last chance to set itself right. It is almost impossible for the administration to screw it up. All it has to do is nothing. Yes, Nothing!

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is

Bill Clinton is by far the most admired president of the past quarter century, a new poll shows, underscoring how much he has done to burnish his profile since leaving the White House in 2000. Asked which president of the past 25 years they admired most, some 42% of respondents named Mr. Clinton in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Survey. That was more than twice the share that named any other president. The other three presidents of the quarter century all polled about the same: 18% said they most admired President Barack Obama; 17% named George W. Bush; and 16%

Members of Congress called on President Obama Sunday to link up with Arab allies and quell a quick-moving crisis in Iraq, where Islamic militants swept toward Baghdad and left a bloody trail in their wake. Republican lawmakers said the administration has sat on the sidelines for too long as sectarian violence threatens to undo what U.S. troops accomplished during the war in Iraq. The bloodshed spurred by militants from an al Qaeda splinter group could topple the country’s fragile government while civil war rages in neighboring Syria, they said, offering a magnet for extremists from Iran and even western nations.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – It´s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father´s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House. "I think frankly we've all been through a cold and bitter winter and the bear has cabin fever,"

President Obama announced Monday night, in a letter to Congress, that 275 U.S. troops will deploy to Iraq to provide security for American personnel in the country currently in chaos. In the letter, the president called for Congressional authorization for this action. And this was the statement released by the Press Secretary’s office. Today, consistent with the War Powers Resolution, the President transmitted a report notifying the Congress that up to approximately 275 U.S. military personnel are deploying to Iraq to provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. The personnel will provide assistance to
