    Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) announced Wednesday he will jump into the race for his old job, shaking up an already crowded primary field. McAuliffe, who served as Virginia’s chief executive from 2014-2018, officially launched his campaign in the state capital of Richmond, sending out an email to supporters ahead of an event in the state capital of Richmond in which he was expected to make the announcement. Virginia is the only state in the country that bars governors from serving consecutive terms, and a McAuliffe victory would make him just the second Virginian since the Civil War to...

John "Johnny" Winnick II had that authority when he led a six-man surveillance team on a mission near Lake Tharthar in the Anbar province of Iraq on June 17. Winnick, 24, a San Diego native and...

    He said, "Mom I want to join the Marines, please sign these papers,I am only 17." I said okay. 911 happened. Are you sure? "Yes please let me go, I know I have to go." I said okay. He was only 18. They said you young Marines will go to war and some will not come back. He said, "Don't worry; I have to fight for our country." I said okay. He was only 19. He marched up to Baghdad. Sand swirled all around, the heat was extreme, water was scarce, and sleep was little. Hungry, tired and dirty, he...

"I wish this company would just come clean with the Street regarding our guidance.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. regulators have decided against filing civil charges against Global Crossing Ltd. founder Gary Winnick following a probe of its accounting practices, his attorney said on Monday. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission had been expected to announce a settlement with Winnick and three other former Global Crossing executives last week, capping a two-year investigation of the international telecommunications company. Winnick's attorney, Gary Naftalis, said in a statement that the SEC "has determined that no charges should be brought against Gary Winnick. We always believed that the evidence demonstrated that Gary Winnick acted lawfully and properly in...

    On Christmas Eve, the Justice Department of the United States of America meekly announced it would not seek the indictment of Gary Winnick, one of the biggest corporate villains in American history. Attorney General John Ashcroft chose Christmas Eve to make the announcement because he didn't want you to know about it. Mr. Ashcroft is excellent at not seeking indictments. His department was unable to indict Senator Robert Torricelli, despite solid evidence he was on the take. It was unable to pin down any wrongdoing in the vote-buying investigation involving the town of New Square, N.Y., where, in the 2000...

Hutchison Whampoa and Singapore Telemedia will invest a total of $250 million for a 61.5% majority interest in the new firm. The offer is two-thirds less than the $750 million that the investors had proposed in...
