Adrian Peterson turned himself in early Saturday morning, FOX NFL Insider Jay Glazer reported , after authorities in Texas issued an arrest warrant for the star Minnesota Vikings running back on a charge of child abuse for using a branch to spank his son. Peterson surrendered to authorities in Montgomery County and was released on a $21,000 bond, according to Glazer. However, Peterson has been benched for Sunday’s game against New England.

As the Washington Examiner detailed, Bush will make three high-profile appearances this month and next: a campaign stop with Illinois gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner in Chicago on September 18; a September 23 fundraiser in Florida for five competitive Republican Senate candidates including hawkish Arkansas prospect Tom Cotton; and an up to $5,000 per head fundraising gala for Michigan governor Tom Snyder in October.

It’s a tough time to be a concerned citizen. The truth of the matter is, the job has always been messy. But it’s way worse when the subject is foreign policy. We gathered around our TVs and computers and peered at our smartphones Wednesday night to hear President Obama explain his plan for combating ISIS, even though we have pretty much lost faith in plans when it comes to the United States involvement in the Middle East. He sounded very strong. And, really, that’s something. We’d have been happy to come away just saying something like “he appeared to believe he’s on the

Baltimore Ravens owner Stephen Bisciotti wrote a letter to the team´s fans and sponsors Tuesday, addressing the team´s handling of the Ray Rice situation and stating that the Ravens could have handled things differently. "First, let us say that we did not do all we should have done and no amount of explanation can remedy that," Bisciotti wrote in the letter, which was posted on the team´s website.

Oversight chairman Rep. Darrell Issa pledged Thursday evening that the Obama administration’s top Obamacare official must testify to Congress about a July security breach at HealthCare.gov. The federal Obamacare website was hacked into in July, The Wall Street Journal first reported Thursday. No personal consumer information was extracted from HealthCare.gov, but the “malicious attack” inserted malware into a weak part of the website that will help the hackers to attack other websites. Now, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa wants Marilyn Tavenner, head of the Obamacare agency the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, to finally testify before Congress

Marcotte played up a recent study by a feminist professor and her two colleagues that underlined that "while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food...the stress that cooking puts on people, particularly women, may not be worth the trade-off."

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

She is building stamina through tough new workouts with a personal trainer and yoga. She is talking about how to address income inequality without alienating corporate America. And she is reviewing who’s who in the Democratic Party in Iowa, a crucial early voting state in the presidential cycle. Hillary Rodham Clinton has said publicly that she will decide early next year whether she will undertake a second campaign for the presidency. But inside the Clinton operation, the groundwork is already quietly being laid for a candidacy. On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton will appear at the 37th annual Iowa steak fry hosted by Senator Tom Harkin;

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition
