    DURHAM, N.C.

    Last summer, the Anderson Monarchs, the Philadelphia baseball team that became famous a year earlier when it made the Little League World Series behind pitcher Mone Daviss firepower, barnstormed through the South. They played baseball, and they also toured sites significant to the civil rights movement as a nod to the teams heritage it is named, after all, for the Kansas City Monarchs, the Negro leagues club for which Jackie Robinson once played. I stood where Martin Luther King and John Lewis stood, wrote outfielder Myles Eaddy on a team blog after a visit to Selma, Ala., adding, It...

    When John Kerry toured the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Museum this week before meeting foreign ministers at the G-7 Summit, Reuters reports that he had witnessed “haunting displays [of] photographs of badly burned victims, the tattered and stained clothes they wore and statues depicting them with flesh melting from their limbs.” “It is a stunning display. It is a gut-wrenching display,” explained Kerry. “It is a reminder of the depth of the obligation every one of us in public life carries … to create and pursue a world free from nuclear weapons.” Iran exempted, of course. But, really, is this...

    <p>Ted Cruz said Thursday he will not apologize to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for accusing him of lying last year, despite suggestions from Senate colleagues it would help them unite behind his campaign.</p> <p>"That ain't gonna happen," Cruz told CNN's Dana Bash in an interview that aired on "Erin Burnett OutFront." "And if the Washington lobbyists want to see that happen, they can hold their breath a long, long time. My focus is on the American people and uniting Republicans behind shared values and a shared vision." Cruz has presented himself as the candidate best poised to unite the Republican Party against Hillary Clinton in November. But he has struggled with his own colleagues in the Senate, winning limited support from Republican senators.</p>

    President Obama was in Argentina on Thursday and made one of his patented 'American apologies' for actions that the Central Intelligence Agency took during Argentina's "dirty war." In the 1970s, Soviet communism and socialism was spreading rapidly throughout South America and the CIA created Operation Condor to help local right-wing groups such as the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance repel the Russian influence. Politics aside, trying combat the spread of communism has never been easy and CIA agents did what was necessary to protect the United States. But rest assured, Obama, who swept in to save the day, gave a most...

    This morning, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu experienced something that American politicians have become all too familiar with being overshadowed by Donald Trump. The prime ministers video-linked speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's conference was preceded by the unscheduled introduction of AIPAC President Lillian Pinkus and four other leaders. Choking back tears, Pinkus apologized for Monday night's speeches, implying that Donald Trump had violated a nonpartisan standard. From the moment this conference began, until this moment, we have preached a message of unity, Pinkus said. We have said, in every way we can think of: Come together....

While we may have policy differences, we deeply respect the office of the president of the United States, and our president, Barack Obama. As she continued to read, Pinkus began to choke up, visibly angered by Trumps words, and by the applause they evoked. There are...

Er … don’t hold your breath: Republican senators said that Cruz must return to Capitol Hill and make the case directly to his colleagues to help ease long-festering tensions. And a large number of Republicans said the fence-mending starts with this: Apologizing to McConnell for calling him a liar last year on the floor of the Senate.That message — to smooth things over with Senate Republicans in a private session — was personally delivered...

    The clothing company Lands’ End has apologized for recently featuring longtime pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem on its website and catalog as a “legend” for her work on women’s equality. The profile centered around Steinem’s work for the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s and 80s, not abortion. However, more recent versions of the ERA have been interpreted as potentially invalidating various pro-life state laws. “One reason we need an Equal Rights Amendment is because nowhere in the Constitution does the word ‘women’ appear,” Steinem told Lands’ End. “We need a constitutional principle of female equality.” “We understand that some of...

    On November 13, President Obama claimed that ISIS was "contained." One day later, ISIS painted bloody red lines on Paris streets. The credibility of American foreign policy took another big hit. Then came Saturday's Wall Street Journal report that last week, "an American B-52 bomber on a routine mission over the South China Sea unintentionally flew within two nautical miles of an artificial island [Cuarteron] built by China." This seemed like good news, suggesting that Obama was challenging -- under cover of an "unintentional" foray -- China's imperial project in the East China and South China Seas. That would be...
