    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who served seven years in military prison for leaking classified data, is seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate seat from Maryland, according to Federal election filings seen on Saturday. Manning, who was granted clemency by former U.S. President Barack Obama, was released in May from a U.S. military prison in Kansas where she had been serving time for passing secrets to the WikiLeaks website in the biggest breach of classified data in the history of the United States.

    "I really appreciate the support given to me by the evangelicals. They've been incredible. Every poll shows how well I'm doing with them," Trump says in the ad, filmed from what appears to be his office in Trump Tower. "And, you know, my mother gave me this Bible, this very Bible, many years ago," he added, holding up the holy book to the camera. "In fact, it's her writing, right here. She wrote the name and the address, and it's just very special to me." The billionaire businessman closed the 30-second spot by vowing he would never let the evangelical...

    GOP frontrunner Donald Trump took to Twitter to “thank the evangelical Christians for the warm embrace [he’s] received on the campaign trail.” In his appeal to the evangelical vote just two days before the Iowa caucus, Trump posted a video on Facebook where he holds his mother’s Bible and also thanks the evangelical voting block for keeping him high in the polls. “I really appreciate the support given to me by the evangelicals — they’ve been incredible,” Trump said in the video. “Every poll says how well I’m doing with them.” He adds, “My mother gave me this Bible —...

    FERGUSON, George What to say about George? Certainly, no one could accuse him of having been a loving son, brother, or father. He'd gladly have stolen the shirt off your back and he was generous to a fault with other people's money. Was he a small-time con-man with grandiose schemes? Probably. But another view of him is that he was the most exciting member of his family and of the families he married into. He was a poor man's rhetorician who beguiled certain woman into buying into his promises and dreams. This latter view is lent some support by the...

    An ex-wife of Newt Gingrich told ABC News’s “Nightline” that the Republican presidential candidate wanted an “open marriage.” In a published clip of Brian Ross’s interview with Marianne Gingrich, which will air tonight, Marianne Gingrich said her husband wanted her to accept the fact that he had a mistress. “He was asking to have an open marriage and I refused,” she said. Marianne Gingrich said Newt Gingrich admitted to his six-year affair with Callista, a congressional aide who is now married to the candidate. Newt Gingrich allegedly said Callista “doesn’t care what I do.” Asked for her response, Marianne Gingrich...

Below is my dictation of the interview of Ann Curry questioning Newt Gingrich after reading the propaganda NYT editorial. Curry - Are you intentionally playing the race card to win votes? Gingrich - You know modern liberals are just, I think frankly, are totally off the deep end.

    In response to the Drudge Report’s scoop about Marianne Gingrich’s interview with ABC News, Bob Walker, a senior Gingrich adviser, tells National Review Online that the campaign will fight back. “It is pretty nasty to use personal tragedy for political exploitation,” he says. “That was a very bitter divorce, and you’re talking about somebody who is still, probably, very bitter.”Beyond Walker, several sources close to the Gingrich campaign agree on the merits, but predict that Gingrich will likely ignore the story. They tell NRO that the interview is a “retread” of an Esquire magazine article published in 2010, and...

Separately, Cuomo's office filed two lawsuits against Rattner, seeking at least $26 million and an immediate lifetime ban from...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney delivered a scathing criticism of President Obama's Afghanistan strategy Friday night, accusing the president of delivering rhetoric and not action in the war-torn country. Quoting from a speech Obama delivered in March, Romney agreed with the president "that 'we are in Afghanistan to confront a common enemy that threatens the United States, our friends and allies."' Romney continued on seconding the president: "I believe 'that to succeed, we and our friends and allies must reverse the Taliban's gains, and promote a more capable and accountable Afghan government.'"

One point of disagreement: Whether Johnston, 18, ever lived at the Palin's home. "They said I didn't live there," he said. "[They say] I 'stayed' there. I was like, 'Okay, whatever you want to call it' – I had all my stuff there. So, if you wanna call it staying there, that's fine."

    Sao Paulo, Sep 3 (EFE).- Brazilian former President Fernando Henrique Cardoso accused the country's current leader, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, of presiding over "a republic of scoundrels" in an editorial published Sunday in the Sao Paulo daily O Estado. The piece was in keeping with Cardoso's strenuous campaign to prevent Lula's reelection in the Oct. 1 vote, despite the fact that all the opinion polls taken to date say the president's triumph is a certainty. "How is it possible that in the face of so much moral disaster people can vote to consolidate a presidential situation whose sins are...
