    Over a 72-hour-period beginning Saturday evening, Hillary Clinton showed up on four NBC-related properties. How did she get so much air time? Three days, four appearances: Hillary Clinton just hit a free media jackpot on the NBCUniversal network. Over a 72-hour-period beginning Saturday evening, the Democratic front-runner showed up in rapid-fire succession on four NBC-related properties — “Saturday Night Live,” “Politics Nation with Al Sharpton” on MSNBC, a “Today Show” hosted town hall and an interview on Telemundo – a feat that’s left media consultants, competitors at rival networks and even some at NBC itself wondering how she got so...

    Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton maintained Sunday that she has done all she can to take responsibility and "be as transparent as possible" about the use of her private email server while she was secretary of state. "It is like a drip, drip, drip," Clinton said in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I want these questions to be answered." [Snip] Clinton called the possibility of a using a private email server to avoid freedom of information requests or congressional subpoenas "totally ridiculous."

    Another day, another factual revelation that shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been less than honest with the American people. At some point, it becomes tiresome to ask the same question over and over again. But Clinton leaves us no choice. How many times must she be caught lying before the current presidential campaign has come to an end? Clinton had maintained, and in fact swore, that she had turned over all work-related emails from the private server she chose to use, in contravention of government secrecy and transparency laws. As it turns out, even this claim was...

    Washington Post ^ | October 20, 2011 | Manuel Roig-Franzia
    During his rise to political prominence, Sen. Marco Rubio frequently repeated a compelling version of his family’s history that had special resonance in South Florida. He was the “son of exiles,” he told audiences, Cuban Americans forced off their beloved island after “a thug,” Fidel Castro, took power. But a review of documents — including naturalization papers and other official records — reveals that the Florida Republican’s account embellishes the facts. The documents show that Rubio’s parents came to the United States and were admitted for permanent residence more than two-and-a-half years before Castro’s forces overthrew the Cuban government and...

The business tycoon, who is seeking the conservative party's presidential nomination, is under fire for failing to rebuff anti-Muslim comments at a campaign rally Thursday. Trump indicated that he would look into getting rid of Muslims during a question and answer session at the event in Rochester, New Hampshire, according to broadcast footage and The Hill newspaper.

    More than 50 analysts for the Defense Intelligence Agency have complained to the Department of Defense's Inspector General that their reports are being fraudulently altered by "higher ups." The gist of the alterations has been to make the Administration's war against terror appear more successful than it actually is. "For the most part our efforts against ISIS have been ineffective," said one analyst requesting anonymity. "Despite the drone strikes and the President's tough talk, ISIS continues to gain strength. They have seized the American-made weapons abandoned by an Iraqi Army unwilling to fight. ISIS atrocities remain unabated. There is no...

    President Barack Obama is painting a doomsday scenario for the Arctic and beyond if climate change isn't dealt with fast: entire nations submerged underwater, cities abandoned and refugees fleeing in droves as conflict breaks out across the globe. It's a harrowing image of a future that Obama insists is inevitable unless the world follows his and America's lead by making sweeping cuts to greenhouse gases. Lest his sense of urgency get lost, Obama was to drive the message home on Tuesday by hiking a melting glacier in Alaska. Obama is counting on Alaska's exquisite but deteriorating landscape to elicit a...

    Submerged countries, abandoned cities and floods of refugees await the world barring urgent action on climate change, President Barack Obama warned Monday, painting a doomsday scenario as he opened a historic visit to Alaska. In a bid to further his environmental legacy, Obama brought the power of the presidential pulpit to Anchorage and called on other nations to take swift action as negotiations for a global climate treaty near a close. His speech to an Arctic climate summit set the tone for a three-day tour of Alaska that will put the state’s liquefying glaciers and sinking villages on graphic display....

    The top spokesman for President Barack Obama today said there’s essentially no evidence that Planned Parenthood acted unethically by selling the body parts of aborted babies. Ergo, there’s no reason for Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood. The comments from White House spokesman Josh Earnest come despite a fourth video showing the abortion giant potentially breaking state and federal laws to sell the body parts of aborted babies. The Hill has more about Obama’s spokesman’s comments: White House press secretary Josh Earnest stopped short of issuing a formal veto threat against the legislation, but he said “on balance, the president would...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- U.S. employers added a solid 223,000 jobs in June, and the unemployment rate fell to 5.3 percent, a seven-year low. But wages failed to budge, and other barometers of the job market paint a mixed picture. The unemployment rate fell from 5.5 percent in May, the Labor Department said Thursday. But the rate fell mostly because many people out of work gave up on their job searches and were no longer counted as unemployed.

    This year is the 10th anniversary of a book called "The Republican War on Science." I could just as easily write a book called "The Democratic War on Science." The conflict conservatives have with science is mostly caused by religion. Some religious conservatives reject evolution, and some oppose stem cell research. But neither belief has a big impact on our day-to-day lives. Species continue to evolve regardless of what conservatives believe, and if conservatives ban government funding of stem cell research, private investors will continue the work. By contrast, the left's bad ideas about science do more harm. Many on...
