    Months after declaring an Islamic caliphate, Islamic State, which has seized large swaths of Syria and Iraq, is seeking to address a need of any viable nation: women. In Internet posts and social media messaging, the extremist Sunni militants are recruiting women to marry their fighters and have children, part of a larger strategy of state-building. "They are treating the Islamic State as a country that needs women," said Rita Katz, director of the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online activity by militant organizations. "The message is: 'You are coming to marry someone immediately and have kids and cook.' They're...

    Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal left his wife Huma Abedin’s role with Hillary Clinton in doubt. But one year later, Abedin's position as Clinton’s personal chief of staff remains intact, as well as her marriage to Weiner. ... As Clinton’s personal chief of staff, Abedin was constantly at her boss’ side as Clinton toured the country promoting her memoir, “Hard Choices,” over the summer. And there she was again last weekend, standing just behind Clinton as the former First Lady worked the rope line at an Iowa steak fry, a visit widely seen as the first concrete public step by Clinton...

    Egypt charges ex-president Mursi with passing state secrets to Qatar Ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi stands behind bars during his trial at a court in Cairo . Egypt charged ousted president Mohamed Mursi and several other people on Saturday with endangering national security by leaking state secrets and sensitive documents to Qatar, dealing a further blow to his outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Relations between Qatar, a Gulf Arab state, and Egypt have been icy since July 2013, when then-Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi toppled Mursi after mass unrest against his rule. Qatar had supported Mursi, who is already in jail...

Nagla Mahmoud, Morsi’s wife, is reportedly angry at some statements recently made by Hillary Clinton, including that Morsi was “naïve” and “unfit for Egypt’s presidency,” as reported by Arabic media.

It was like a police officer arresting someone for jaywalking as he ignores the armed robbery taking place right next to him. The problem with the metaphor is that Mattera’s actions didn’t rise to the level of jaywalking while Hillary’s actions – to include having Abedin as a close adviser for years – far outweigh armed robbery.Huma Abedin:...

Adepts of the caliphate movement are present throughout the world, including the United States, under different labels.

    Addressing an event on “global LGBT rights,” a senior State Department official on Wednesday sounded a note of caution about how the U.S. promotes such issues in religiously or culturally conservative countries, warning of the risk of a backlash there. “We should maintain enough humility to remember that we are terribly new at promoting LGBT human rights as U.S. foreign policy. Of course we want to do good – but we should do it, with patience, in a way that results in the maximum benefit for those we want to help.” The Obama administration’s State Department has made promotion of...

    So who's being the sexist? Mika Brzezinski went ballistic on today's Morning Joe over Republicans like Rand Paul raising Monica Lewinsky in the context of a possible Hillary presidential run, calling them "sexist" and "misogynistic." But in the course of her rant, Mika mockingly referred to such Republicans as "little peanuts." Hmm. Did Mika need to use such suggestive, demeaning language in making her point? You have to view the video to get just how derisive was Mika with her "little peanut" line. View the video here.

    Former Bush administration adviser Karl Rove on Sunday cautioned Republicans against a 2016 presidential election strategy that focuses too much on the political history of potential Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Rove told “Fox News Sunday” he was uncertain whether revisiting Clinton and husband Bill Clinton’s years in the White House would help Republicans win the presidency. “It may,” said Rove, now a “Fox News” contributor. “But the trouble for Republicans is it’s easier to say what you’re against than what you are for.” Republicans have tried to knock down a Clinton candidacy essentially since she resigned from her post in...
